Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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.

Nothing nice to say...

Name none 12/3/2020

This GE microwave is not what it was in the past! I've had three and been very happy, last one was purchased in 2012 was wonderful.. this is my forth, not happy this time, sorry I bought.. I would take back if I could. .Very poor quality sounds tinny, pore lighting and the button that opens the door is so flimsy it feels like mite fall off.

Not as good as the old model

Unhappyuser999 12/2/2020

The geniuses at GE took a pretty good small microwave and made it less smart, harder to install, and plenty expensive. As they are the only provider in this size, you are stuck with whatever they give you, and it ain't much, but I was able to at least get the old microwave off the kitchen counter. I can't believe no other manufacturer wants to get in the 1.1 cubic foot market.

SRQChief 12/2/2020

We needed a microwave that wasn't too deep to fit in a wall cabinet and this one is just right! With the built-in trim kit, it looks much more expensive than it was. Just the right amount of features. Just wish it was at least 1000 watts.

Big inside, small outside

Tom Fish 11/23/2020

This size used to be hard to find. I lived years with a Monogram that had a flaky circuit board, and I finally found this which fits my exterior size requirements. This is big inside. The only thing I do not like is that the old timer would repeatedly sound for ever and ever until you cleared it. This one beeps once, its you are not in ear shot, oh boy, you may forget until it is too late.

This is my second GE countertop microwave. I had the last one 9 years and it began bubbling and flaking on the top inside. It did not affect the performance but I thought it was time to upgrade to a stainless steel from black. It fits well in my space and has all the features I need but no extras.

Good size but average function

Bobb27 11/17/2020

This is our third GE microwave of this model. We purchased it because the dimensions fit our counter and also it accommodates large Pyrex dish. However each microwave has only lasted 5 years and then heating element fails despite having a surge protector on our. Outlet. Also the oven function for potato and vegetable does not cook product completely.

Nice looks, but mediocre in performance, the buttons are especially hard to press for results. It is pretty and matches the rest of the newly purchased unit, and functions adequately for my needs, so I'll live with it. My 3 year old Panasonic kicked its b*** performance-wise and functions, especially in the defrost cycle.

Not Nearly As Good As the Last One

An Idea 11/10/2020

This product is a disappointment: the door rattles when you close it, there isn't enough light in the interior (because it has a light source on only one side of the unit), and you can't ever have a flat surface on which to cook multiple items at the same time. This replaced a GE Spacemaker we had for 15 years and is nowhere near as high quality or versatile a product as the previous version.

Still Going Strong After 11 Years

snakeplisskin 11/1/2020

Pretty amazing that any appliance lasts more than a few years in these days of our disposable, wasteful society. But this microwave is a gem - - still chugging along with zero problems, ever, since 2009. It's 800 watts, not 1100. However, no problem at all, if it ain't broke... This is a marvelous microwave. GE got it right.

Sookie 10/28/2020

We loved this sweet microwave, but it stopped working the other day....just 3 years after purchasing. I am planning to buy another unit. My question for your is, do I need to order a new undercabinet mounting kit? Or may we use the kit on the unit we have that just broke down? It appears to be the same model?

Very disappointed in this product

CJB2U 10/26/2020

Had to replace previous model as it died; this was the only option that fit into the space. This replacement is a downgrade from the previous GE Profile Spacemaker Microwave although it is the same wattage - 800 - rather than 1000 which is the standard these days. Not as many useful features and constantly get error messages for no reason. Buttons need to be pressed very hard or hit once or twice to get microwave to work. VERY disappointed that GE changed the measurements just slightly enough that we had to also buy a new trim kit (overpriced!) which is cheap in both construction and appearance. Both microwave and trim show fingerprints much more than previous one did. If there had been any other option that fit into this built-in space we have, we would have not purchased this. Our only other option was to tear apart cabinetry and/or remodel kitchen. All of our other products are GE Profile, but we will not be replacing them with the same as we have lost respect for the integrity of the GE product.

DancingCook 10/21/2020

This is a good microwave. It replaced the GE Profile microwave that used to fit in the space (that one died after 11 years). I preferred the features on the Profile, especially that the timer continued to chime until I turned it off. This one chimes only once, so if I don't hear it, I don't know the time is up!

Kevin27 10/21/2020

This is the second time we bought this model. We originally bought this model because it fit the microwave compartment in our new remodeled kitchen cabinets. It worked fine for about 4 years and then stopped working. We were disappointed that it only lasted 4 years and sought a replacement from a different manufacturer. However, after much looking we could not find another model that would fit the cabinet.. Therefore, we bought the same GE model again. We are hoping it will last longer than the first one.

orelax1 10/20/2020

I hope this lasts longer than the one it's replacing. I bought the same model when we installed a new kitchen and it only lasted 2 1/2 years. The only reason I bought again is I can't find another brand that will fit into the cabinet space. I purchased a 5 year extended warranty to protect against this one failing.

Attractive design/compact size

Rob416 10/20/2020

I replaced my 13 year old GE Profile microwave oven with this new model #PEM31SF3SS and I am very happy with me purchase. My old GE Profile microwave is still operating but the top of the inner oven flaked off due to a manufacturing defect with these ovens back when they were manufactured. I am hoping this issue has been resolved with this new model. I wish it had 1200 watts of power versus 800 watts but this space saving model only comes with 800 watt power. I am a single male who lives alone and this microwave oven meets all of my needs quite satisfactorily. Simply, a well made product at a fair price. You can't go wrong with this oven, especially if you have limited counter space.

MoeJP 10/16/2020

We have had a GE microwave for 30 years. This one replaces the one we have had for 14 years. Everything looks nice and works fine, nice and quiet while running. My only problem is that the display is very hard to read compared to my old one. It is in gray rather than bright white and we have difficulty reading it.

in my last Microwave (20 Yrs old GE)

bjc9 10/15/2020

If it took 3 minutes in my (20 yr old) GE microwave it takes 4 minutes in this one. Sounds clunky when closing and not near the quality of the old one. Mine was built in and GE changed the sizes and this was the best fit for the built in space and is why I bought it. I had to pay an additional $200. to have customized.

Major design flaw!

Art Vandelay 10/14/2020

Don't buy this microwave! Major problems with this microwave. The glass on the door is not secured by anything other than adhesive on some parts, but the right side is not secured and eventually slides over to the right, and the microwave will not function at all when this happens. It will just beep and give you a message seen in the picture and says "Food". It is not obvious and I had to call for service to look at it and assumed it was a manufacturing defect since it was very new. The technician diagnosed the problem and said the glass just has to be pushed back when that happens. Seems like a silly problem to not have noticed when it was designed and manufactured. I will have to deal with this problem as long as I own the microwave.
