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 and 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.

Not impressed.

This unit replaces a previous model GE Profile microwave that failed after 10 years. I have only a 13 shelf in a small kitchenette so I am quite limited on the choice of microwave that will fit that shallow a shelf. Out-of-the-box I wasnt wowed by this new model. After using it for a while it definitely feels less solid cheaper construction and the thing I find most annoying is GEs choice to use gray lettering on the buttons as opposed to the white lettering I had on my previous microwave. Unless you have bright light in the room good luck reading the button labels. Its a perfect example of design-change WITHOUT testing. Also this new unit is more noisy than my old unit -- the turntable makes a rapid clicking noise where the old unit had a smoother sound.

Looks and Size

We bought this unit for two reasons. First to match existing GE Profile appliances which it does beautifully. It is a great blend of industrial modern and practical. Second it needed to fit into an existing space without any additional escutcheon or flanges. The dimensions provided in the specs that we reviewed prior to purchase were helpful and exact.

2nd one in 4 years

We remodeled our kitchen in 2014 and purchased this unit. 4 years later it broke. Ill leave that there. Our cabinets were designed for it so I ordered another one. The door seems flimsy not solid like the 1st one. Also the turntable makes a ticking noise I cant isolate.

Older model was better

Had to purchase this microwave as my older model was no longer being made. The panel numbers etc. is grayed out so it makes it very difficult to see. The older model had white numbers. Also numbers are harder to push on this panel. It seems I really have to push down on the number in order to get the microwave to start. This is not a very good microwave for seniors. I will look for another brand once this one poops out on me in 10 years.

Prefer my old Spacemaker microwave

This is the third Spacemaker microwave we have owned. We purchased another because we liked the previous ones and they fit in the space available. The previous ones did not have a turntable in fact the first one had a shelf. Not all microwaveable vessels are round some are rectangular and are not able to rotate. I was able to put more than one item in the old microwaves thats not so easy with a turntable. The border including the open button around the front of the oven is stainless. That looks nice but always has fingerprints on it. It is impossible to open the door without touching the open button thus fingerprints Our old Spacemaker was also the stainless model but the edge including the open button was black and showed fewer finger prints. A bigger issue is that there is no instruction manual. So far I am not able to use it in anyway but at full power and only by using the 1-6 buttons which cook 1-6 minutes. Whenever I try to change the power level I get an incomprehensible message.

Sleek compact large capacity

This is my fourth of this model over 22 years. I designed a kitchen cabinet around it - chose it because of its narrow depth so it fits in sleekly with my contemporary kitchen. I did give up power for that - at only 800 watts you need to cook most things just a bit longer. I love the unit but am just a bit gun-shy as the paint in the top interior of my last one bubbled and began to peel exposing metal. I was told it wasnt covered under the extended warranty because it didnt affect the functionality of the oven. I wasnt comfortable exposing my family to peeling paint and whatever rays were bombarding around so I tossed it. Just hoping this one does better. Its pretty pricey for a unit that you can expect to get four years out of but Im stuck with the size needed and it does look great and cook great for awhile.

Change in profile series

I am replacing previous GE profile which only lasted 3 years with this newer model. Noisy when operated compared with previous model and not as sleek looking. Much boxier while previous model had curved lines. Needed to purchase this model due to space. They also changed position of under cabinet bolts so had to redrill new holes. Also pricey compared to units of this size.

Fits my space perfectly

We purchased this particular microwave because it fits my shelf space exactly as it needed it to. It replaces another GE Profile Microwave. Overall it is an excellent good quality product. We like that it doesnt sound tinny or feel flimsy. It would get 5 stars but we find the numbers and words on the buttons difficult to read. It would be better if they lit up or something. I also wish it had been available in at least 1000 watts but the 900 gets the job done.

Nothing remarkable

This GE Profile microwave replaces a similar unit that is 10 years old. Same cooking watts 800 but a little larger vertically inside 1cf -- 1.1cf which means the exterior dimensions are a little higher. I have a very shallow shelf 13 this unit must sit in so I was quite limited in the microwave units available. My biggest disappointment is the control pad: My old unit had white lettering on all the buttons which means they could be seen in a dark room. This new unit has VERY dark-colored lettering on the buttons which makes it VERY difficult to see the buttons without a lot of light in the room.

Perfect for the right space

If youre looking for a low profile microwave to fit into a tight space this might be the ticket for you. Understand ahead of time that this has less voltage than some of the bigger microwaves which is the trade off with a small profile machine like this but if the space is your main concern then its OK. The food will still get warm just not as fast as it would with a bigger machine. Just focus on all that space you saved. Ive been very pleased.

Compact Microwave Oven

Nice compact microwave. But this is my third one in 11 years. The first two lasted about five years each and then in both of them the interior paint flaked off some of it ending up in the food. I expect that the same will happen with this one but GE is the only company that makes this size so Im stuck with it.

Clumsy door with bad placement of keypad buttons

The overall look is fine. The bottom to open the door is harder to engage compared to the Spacemaker II model. Its just that much bigger so now I cant open the microwave door all the way because it hits the abutting cabinet. My option to or even this was to have it jut out more which is not acceptable Im not sure who thought that INCREASING the size of a microwave thats basically made to be built in was a good idea. I also wonder who thought that putting the cook time button amongst the other buttons was a good idea. Its the primary button that people will use yet its not in a logical or natural place on the keypad. The writing ON the keypad buttons is too faint. I hate this thing already and Ive had it for 10 minutes. Its too bad that I dont have another option from GE or another manufacturer because Im not looking forward to having to use this microwave for the next several years.

Perfect size

The GE Space Saver is the only microwave that has a good cabinet width and does not stick out beyond the cabinets when mounted under a cabinet. Perfect to mount above our coffee station when we remodelled our kitchen. We no longer wanted a big microwave above our stove. This allowed us to open the area above the stove for better ventilation and updated look. Microwave works great and can turn table can be turned off with large items.
