I was cornered into buying this microwave after we found out it was literally the ONLY one that would fit into our kitchen island as a built-in. (Word to the wise: check the specs on the TRIM KIT before choosing your cabinetry, not just the microwave.) For a run-of-the-mill countertop microwave, I thought it was pretty pricey. It doesn't really have any features that warrant the extra cost, so if you're not choosing purely based on dimensions, go for another model that offers more for your buck. It works well, looks fine, just nothing special about it.
Pros: Looks great, compact overall but adequate interior space
Cons: Takes a long time to heat anything; average to boil 12 oz water was just at 5 minutes; stainless and black always dirty, every fingerprint shows, glare on number pad plus the black on black numbers makes pad almost invisible unless brightest kitchen lights are on.
Stylish, Good Size & Weight
slow, under powered, hard to keep clean
I have owned GE Micorwaves for years, three to be exact. This one is terrible. The push button controls are too hard to work. You have to use your thumb to even have a chance to turn it on.
I am not happy.
Our old profile died, and had to replace it So ordered this one as it was only profile line option that fit in the old space. Something about it seems lower quality - not as many functions on the touchpad and the door button seems like it will break before the microwave dies. It also doesn't have the profile emblem, which made me question it

We’re rating this as fair because it’s quiet, has a (while sometimes wobbly) turntable and it has a nice style/appearance. The negatives are: it’s higher price w/very low quality stainless steel;etc,And it’s definitely slower than original model we owned. Opening door/settings difficult to do!:
This microwave works great. It has a carousel unlike my old one. easy to use keypad, fits perfectly in the space (a big concern), and good power. It was a little pricey for a microwave -- but it fits under my low counters.
Easy to Use, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Durable, Easy to Clean, Lots of Features, High Quality, Nice Design
The first Microwave's door button quit operating in one day. Trying to reach GE was a nightmare! The microwave was replaced. Childproof lock-out feature engages too freely and makes this product a pain to use! We will be purchasing another Microwave ( not a GE product) and my husband will use this one at work. Let me emphasize this is not a Home Depot problem, this is a GE problem!!!!!
