Great Over-the-Range Alternative
Posted by: nygeograd from: on
We purchased this microwave because we wanted a vent hood rather than an over-the-range microwave in our new kitchen, but we didn't want to sacrifice microwave capacity. This microwave is big enough for anything we need to cook and stylish enough to look good out on the counter. So far, everything about this microwave works very well, and we have no complaints.

Profile unit replaced an 8 year old one that died suddenly. Unit clears moisture better than previous model. Brushed stainless steel gets finger stains so easily it has to be cleaned every usage. Has a cheap GE medalion on door destroying sleek lines.

Nice Microwave had to get new replacement though
Posted by: HankinCarlsbad from: Carlsbad, CA on
Had to return it, new one isn't in yet, the quality control dept. did not see that when they mounted the outside stainless steel door frame that they dented it in 2-4 spots (not in shipping) and there was some bubble action going on from under neath the keypad. New one is on it's way out but when I took it to return it at Best Buy store, they had to fully refund me and couldn't ship the new one to the store so I could check it out, I had to go through the whole online process again - so no one sells microwaves in stores anymore - what's up with this, orig. took 4-6 weeks for shipment, now I'm waiting again 2 more weeks without a microwave... we'll see what this one looks like. Hoping it's good!

I have tried two of these microwaves during the past few years. It is mainly used to reheat, rather than cook, in. So I would describe it as used minimally. Both of the Profile countertop microwaves started making lots of noise after about two years. They will keep running, with the noise, for another year and then they stop working. I like the size of this microwave, but for the price, I would think that it would last longer.

Excellent product, but a bit expensive. Easy to operate and easy to clean.

Good microwave - note the drawbacks
Posted by: amazingsathu from: Chicago, IL on
I had to get this and matching Single Convection Wall Oven to retrofit an aging Maytag Oven and Kitchenaid Microwave. I did the fitting in existing cabinet along with the matching trim kit. The trimkit bottom plate assembly is a pain compared to older Kitcehnaid one. This one has be fixed to the bottom of the microwave first and then inserted into the cabinet. So make sure there is enough wiggle room to insert this and insert the plug into the electrical socket as the wire is not long enough. That said once done it looks beautiful and clean. The trim kit is also very good and has side vents for hot air and steam to escape.
Now the microwave function itself. As this does not have the inverter technology like the interim Panasonic oven I had, this does the traditional on / off of the microwaves itself. This leads to either uneven heating for similar settings or over does things. Need to adjust to this microwave specifically.
Tip: if purchased with trim kit and installation option there is no sales tax as this would come under permanent fixtures at home.

Easy to use and family-friendly!
Posted by: TigerLover from: on
This GE microwave was purchased to replace another GE microwave that had been previously installed in the house we purchased in 2007. We use our microwave multiple times daily. We're not sure why the other one died, however we were pleased with the longevity of the previous model so we decided to purchase the updated version! The black on black looks sharp. (The previous version we had was stainless steel but we like the black better.) More importantly, it is easy for kids, teens and adults to use. We use some of the one-touch features (e.g. popcorn) but mainly use the cook time manual entry option.
