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.

Very Quiet

Feliciaross 8/11/2020

It is very quiet and looks great with my other slate ge appliances my only issue is my cabinet is very deep and I feel there should be a deeper microwave as well this one is very shallow and actually was 50$ more then the other one we wanted. It would've fit as well but there isn't a trim kit for it.

The microwave completes the set of GE profile (slate) appliances that we bought, and we are very happy with it. It works well, and we just love the way it looks in my kitchen!

mileysmom 5/8/2020

Only had it one day, but like it as well, or better, than previous model. My previous GE Profile was same model, but I like the enhancements that have been made since 2008.

Great small microwave

Bcwardrn 3/31/2020

Love the fact that it is small but still serves the purpose of reheating etc. works great in our new kitchen. Did not want an over the range microwave so this one is perfect.

jerseygirl08204 1/29/2020

The size of this microwave is perfect! It doesn't take up all your countertop space or it can be built in with your cabinets. However, it is a bit pricy. It is more expensive than the larger microwaves

Nice Compact Microwave

RDWONE 9/10/2019

The microwave has nice features and is very compact, but does take some time to adjust to the lower power rating vs. other units.

Nice looking but not enough functionality

GabsKitchen 8/14/2019

These good reviews swayed my thinking-very regrettable. This microwave is only good for heating your beverage Or very small jobs, that's it. It is great looking but doesn't function well. I put in a bagged popcorn today and all it did was burn the bag. The heating is twice as long as most microwaves which I assume is due to the wattage. Also, it doesn't fit a standard square plate, so only a standard circular plate will work (or smaller). Not happy, what I wouldn't do to have the chance to exchange/upgrade to one of the other larger/higher wattage microwaves. I bought for ease of space and it had a trim piece to install in the wall (remodel appliances). I bought the matching oven too, no complaints on that one. I will likely be replacing this sooner than later. We call it our kitchen decoration.

Display buttons hard to read

SusanBell 7/1/2019

I wish the buttons had a backlight. The print on the buttons is so small, it makes it hard to see them with black background. Also, the popcorn feature does not work well. It comes up ERR as in "error" after a short time, and the popcorn is only half-popped. It's a pricey microwave, and I expected better from GE.

paint peeling off inside after 1.5 years

Very disappointed that the microwave has to be put in the landfill after 1.5 years of use due to the cavity paint peeling off.

I was hoping for more choices in the stone slate color. Would have preferred a larger microwave, but nothing else in this color would fit in my kitchen cabinet space. Disappointed. ....

Unfortunate they changed the size

Sargemeg 4/22/2019

I have had 3 of these microwaves in 17 years. They keep dying, but it has been the only one I can find that fits in my built in cabinet space so I have been replacing it with the same one. Just got a 4th and realized the size has been changed. It is 1/8" too wide now that it's 24"W. Since I can't find any microwave to fit in the space, I will return this 4th one and purchase another brand that might last longer and just put it on the counter. Also, the interior paint has a bad habit of peeling on the ceiling of microwave, risking falling in your food. I've had to keep a plastic cover over food to protect it.

Great size, good looks and plenty of power

Mikeafa11 2/5/2019

Bought this as a replacement for my 20+ year old microwave. My older microwave was a 1000 watt unit and I was concerned that an 800 watt unit would fall short but I am not dissatisfied. There are some items that take 30 seconds to a minute or two longer which didn't bother me too much. I only use it to reheat items anyway and I was more concerned about size and looks on my microwave rack or counter top.

It is the perfect size for us. We also purchased separately the outer cover and it all looks terrific. My contractor said it was a little difficult to install but worth it. It makes the perfect finishing touch.

Overpriced

AMO1948 11/15/2018

I bought this because it is the only model microwave oven that fits in the space built into my kitchen cabinets (the depth of the opening is the issue). It is the second PEM31 I needed buy to replace a failed GE JEM31 series (now discontinued) that I liked a lot (5 stars). The PEM31 has the same exterior dimensions as the JEM31, but has fewer features, a smaller oven cavity, and lower quality. My first PEM31 failed after only a few years of moderate use. In spite of being a manufacturing cost reduced version of the JEM31, it is significantly higher in price. If I had another option that would fit in the available space, I would have bought it. Sadly, that is not an option.

Love the Slate color

Maryjaneg 10/4/2018

This is the perfect color instead of going with stainless like most people nowadays. It's the perfect microwave for a small space or for a media room as I bought it for. So far it works very well. I love all of my GE appliances.
