I got this to replace a 20-year-old GE microwave of about the same size. The space I have is just under 24" wide, and I was concerned this wouldn't fit, but it just makes it, and the door opens fine. The LED display is very clear and bright, and I got it in white which I think makes the buttons easier to read. I'm particularly happy with the fact that the turntable can be turned off so that I can use wider pans sometimes. I also really like the Express Cook featue, where you can just hit any number from 1 to 6 and it starts cooking immediately on High for the specificied number of minutes.Things I'm not so crazy about: when using the kitchen timer, it only dings once, which means I have to listen mroe carefully than with the old one, which made four beeps. As I saw in some other reviews, it doesn't feel quite as solid as my old one - I wouldn't go so far as to call it flimsy, but it seems a bit "tiinny." You have to press quite hard on the button to open the door, and the machine sometimes moves back slightly from the pressure applied. Not a big deal, but not as good as the old one. Biggest problem was that the power cord is shorter than the old one, and it comes out of the far right-hand side of the back of the oven. This meant that I was short about 8" from reaching the outlet that the old one reached easily, so I had to find a short heavy-duty extension cord for it.The Pros far outweigh the Cons for me, and I would recommend this microwave, especially if you need it to fit in a tight space.

This is the one and only option or upper cabinet depth microwaves so we had to resolve to be okay with it regardless of it's flaws. It's small, but big enough for reheating leftovers and building it into the cabinets allows for leaving counter space free. There was a small dent on the lower part of the door of our appliance right out of the box, ABT was great about exchanging it but the replacement has a series of small ripples in the stainless steel in the same location so I'm assuming it's a manufacturing issue. We bought a GE range at the same time and there seems to be a number of quality control problems with that as well so we'd think twice about choosing GE for any future purchases. If you're planning a kitchen remodel, I'd recommend a lower cabinet built-in microwave so you have more choices.

Great Features & Size is Perfect!

We were looking for a microwave that would serve our purpose and it had to be a countertop version. This fit our needs perfectly and we are extremely happy with our GE purchase.

NICE LOOKING UNIT AND FILLS THE GAP
THE PRODUCT IS COMPACT, WORKS GREAT AND MEETS OUR NEEDS W/RESPECT TO A MICROWAVE
Unit is very quiet. Controls are hard to see and hard to press. Otherwise, it works.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
The only one that works
from Seattle, WA, United States
If you want a microwave to put up in a cabinet that's not deep, then this is the one for you. We wanted to build one in to our Ikea cabinets and this worked perfect. The 'reheat' functions for leftovers works surprisingly well - this is the first microwave where I've consistently used that feature. The only thing I wish was different was that closing the door feels a lil loud.
Attractive, compact design and easy to use.

We replaced an 8 year old GE Profile just like this one. Our cabinet space is shallow and this model fits the bill. Quiet, easy to use, does the job without confusing and unnecessary functions. Nice design.
Glad to find a replacement not happy w/door sound!

Greetings, our 12 year old GE microwave stopped heating, so finding a replacement was needed. Its a small unit & didn't want to change our cabinets, glad to find a replacement from GE, noticing the door when you close it sounds like TIN not solid, also notice that this new microwave doesn't heat at the same time while using the timer. Its one or the other. The old GE model did. Don't understand why companies change models that worked great the old way. The new & improved for this model sure doesn't apply. I was also hoping to find a conviction microwave that would fit this smaller model....not so.

I purchased this microwave to fit in an existing space that my previous GE microwave had been installed. I needed another microwave with a depth of 12 inches and this fit perfectly.
from KS, United States
We bought this model because it would fit into our cabinet as if it was a built in unit. It is rather small inside, but we are using it to just warm things up.
from Bellevue, WA, United States
I am very happy with this microwave. I love all the one-press cook times: 30 sec, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc minutes. I use the timer and set my own cook time too. I don't use any of the programs so no comment about those. I was using a small 25-yr old microwave, and this GE is a pleasure. Tons of power for my needs.

I bought this unit to replace a similar one that I purchased in 2001. Although my older unit was working, a check with a microwave leakage device indicated a leak around the latch side of the door. A second test using my cell phone also indicated a leak. The newer unit was purchased in stainless steel vs the white finish of my older unit. The first issue that I have is with the cheaper sound and feel of the door as it is being opened and closed. The second issue is with the lack of responsiveness of the touch pad control panel. The third issue that I have is with the depression in the center of the top of the outside of the unit. My final observation is that the unit takes longer to boil water, thus longer to cook items.
