Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

feels flimsy and cheap

k GE microwave 3/23/2021

even though we've had the same kind of over and over the years I replaced three of them in the last 12 years. Most were solid sounding. This one feels cheap and flimsy. They have all been the 1.1 ft.³ microwave which Has to fit in a certain area. It fit perfectly but Justin feel the same as the previous models or versions of the same microwave.

Compact size fits our cabinets

JSphantom 3/19/2021

Having had this for almost two months, I am thus far pleased with this microwave. It fits our cabinet space which will only accommodate smaller ovens. the interior is a bit cramped but with the ability to turn off the turntable is workable. It's wattage was initially a concern since we previously had an 1100 watt unit but thus far have not noticed a huge difference in cooking times. YMMV. The GE Spacesaver model we had a couple of ovens ago lasted 35 years. Let's hope this one lasts a long time.

SandD 3/17/2021

We had the old space saver oven which we really liked but had to replace it. We were disappointed that GE increased the sized of the microwave which made it extremely challenging to fit it in the old space, and at the same they reduced the power from 1100 to 800 watts.

Liked the older model GE Profile better

arm425 3/16/2021

The microwave works fine, but I think the prior GE Profile model was built better. This model only beeps once when the timer or cooking is finished. The prior model beeped repeatedly until turned off, a good feature. Bought this model as it was the only one that would fit the cabinet opening. Wish they still made the old model and size.

I can't believe they changed the size!

StevenW765 3/15/2021

I have been buying the GE PEM31 series microwaves for 21 years as it is the only unit that fits my built in cabinet. They have always looked great with the GE metal trim kit. Naturally, when my previous 8-year old unit died I immediately bought this unit. To my surprise, it is a quarter inch taller and doesn't fit. Customer support said to buy the new trim kit. The new trim kit is plastic and requires a different size cabinet opening. Over a $1000 of cabinet work later I now have it installed. As for the unit itself, the turntable is smaller than the old model and the door open button is very stiff. It is obvious that GE is trying to save cost on this model. Before I bought my previous unit I read a review that said it was small and under powered, but it made up for it by being overpriced. That review is accurate for this model too.

Temperamental

JanK72 3/11/2021

I am on my second GE microwave in 4 weeks. The first one lasted 2 weeks because twice it wouldn't start on Express start 3. Canceling made it worse because then NOTHING started. After I cooked my dinner at a neighbor's and tried later in the evening it worked again. So far my second one (same model) has had the identical problem once. Holding my breath! If there is a "next time" I am switching stores and the GE brand. I am still waiting for my new GE range following an electrical fire. Hopefully the range will work better than the microwave!

Chief cook bottle care 3/11/2021

This is the 3rd GE microwave of this model that I have bought. ONLY because it is the only one which fits in the space for the microwave. Each one has lasted less amount of time. I think I will remodel the kitchen to get a bigger one.

Uky2021 3/11/2021

This microwave replaced a bigger GE microwave. Unfortunately, power levels on this one are lower. This makes reheating items to take longer. Of course this is not a product flaw but simply a by-product of downsizing.

Good replacement for old microwave

boulder bob 3/6/2021

Our last microwave lasted almost 20 years and we were able to find the latest version - just in stainless. It's much quieter and has the rotating plate. It's a great improvement over the old one. This is just the right size for our kitchen and we were hard pressed to find anything else that fits our tiny space. Great value and quality in this product.

MNDawnvk 3/3/2021

I was replacing a 20-year-old built-in microwave which was the same brand. The cabinet it is in is not huge, so not many would fit - but this one does! This is the newer model. The old one lasted a long time. I hope the same will be said for this one. It does potatoes beautifully and so far, we're loving it.

Bron132 3/2/2021

This microwave, although it is small for those who do not have space, is weak. I would not recommend a microwave that has less than 1100 watts of power. Controls on this machine also require a "heavy touch" to operate.

Need trim kit

windmill1376 2/27/2021

Just purchased this microwave to replace our GE Monogram Spacemaker 2 but the existing trim I have is now to small, which trim kit do I need? The current space the microwave sits in is 24.75"W x 15"H so the trim would need fit around those dimensions. Thanks

This little microwave is a real game changer. It fits/mounts under a 24-27" width upper cabinet without being 'proud' of a standard 12" depth cabinet. We've used this model for over 7 years with no issues of any kind. What a great find!

Upgraded kitchen appliances

Kupnorth 2/25/2021

Recently remodeled my kitchen and I wanted stainless steel appliances. I purchased the GE profile to replace another GE microwave I had for 20 years. Stuck with GE because my previous experience was positive. Things seem to take a little longer in my new microwave to heat which is not a deal breaker. I'm giving this 4 stars because the button you push to open seems stiff and when it opens it does so with gusto.

Paulmx 2/24/2021

It's operation and menu are great. However the control panel is difficult to read without an overhead lamp. The panel buttons are black with light gray characters/words. The GE microwave I replaced had the opposite color of the buttons; White with Black characters/words. Much better contrast and easy to read without additional room lighting.

valerie415 2/20/2021

I bought this microwave in 2018 when we were remodeling our kitchen because it was the only one that had a shallow enough depth. I was happy with the performance until now, only 3 years later, and of course out of warranty, one of the elements on the digital display has failed. Not sure what can even be done about this.

KC homeowner 2/13/2021

This microwave replaced the prior GE model we purchased in 2007 during a kitchen remodel. It is difficult to find a microwave less than 13" in height. We read reviews of this model and noted some concerns, but so far this microwave has performed without any issues. We believe this model cooks faster and more uniformly than the old model.
