Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hickabilly Tight fit when replacing an identically sized unit
I had all white appliances when the house was built 15 years ago and as each appliance dies, I have replaced them with the Stanless Steel version. I have been careful to measure each appliance so that the replacement can fit without cutting into the cabinetry. The previous generation of GE over the range microwaves used a different mounting plate for the wall and the screw positions in the top were different. So, I ended up having to cut a bit of the tile just below the unit to get it to fit just because the plate was 1/4 inch taller than the previous mounting plate. The microwave unit itself is identical in size. Just the mounting plate for the wall is different.
In 15 years a lot has changed in the options and the buttons. It took a bit to get use to the differences. For instance, convenient things that I frequently use like turning off the turntable require going into a menu.
When you install this unit, you have the option to install with the fan venting out into the kitchen over your head or you can redirect it to a vent pipe in the cabinetry above or behind the unit. That is a nice touch that the previous unit didn't have. It also has a great nightlight so if you set the time you can have it produce a little glow of light in the kitchen. That also means that the clock has to stay accurate and GE took care of that. Even if the power goes out, the clock keeps on ticking. I wish I could say the same for my range.
The only thing that I wonder about is why GE chose to have the curved framing around the glass while the rest of the profile series is squared.

I had a ge profile microwave for over 15 years and never had a problem. Updated to Stainless Ge profile just 2 years ago and now we can't even use it now because the keypad comes up with a shortage.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by yepixodov 2 years lifetime, is not it a great GE quality?
Two years. yes, it worked ONLY 2 years and just stopped.
No smoke or any warnings, no abuse, no iron heating, just normal use.
Very disappointed. Thinking to switch the brand, will need to replace range oven and dishwasher as well I guess. Profile GE dishwasher also is giving me the headache by the way.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RRM855 Updated model appears larger
Bought this to replace the equivalent ten year old model. This seems to have a slightly larger interior and a vastly improved fan and halogen lighting. It does have a larger face and more stainless steel to keep clean-it shows fingerprints easily. Be sure to have the space above for venting as the fan shoots upward into cabinetry. I do miss the greater number of special function buttons on the older models. This has embedded menus which are less convenient. The pre-programmed meals are useless for most people too. There is no probe to cook to predetermined temperatures. Microwaves tend to break often, so I recommend getting an extended warranty. We had to use the last at least eight times.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KevinH Overall, a good product
Easy to use, very intuitive keyboard and will set up in all ventilation possibilities. The fit and finish is nice, but the opening door handle quality is below average with a not entirely smooth feel to the hand. The dark interior takes some getting used to after seeing nothing but stark white insides of microwaves my entire life. Heating is powerful and noise level is not excessive while in operation. Fan exhaust is nice, spread out to 2 uptakes over the range. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Recently our family had a newborn, my wife uses our microwave to sterilize the baby bottles. We switched out microwaves to the GE Profile Spacemaker and love it. This one is far better than the one that we had before. Very fast, quiet and easy to clean. We use this microwave all the time since and can tell a big difference since we switched. I really like this new microwave, can't think of any downside with it. One of the best and most used part of our kitchen. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
