Bought this for my den, I love it!

  • Excerpt: I bought this microwave for my den and I think it is wonderful! It is definitely good for small spaces and offers a lot of options. I am in love with the sensor that adjusts cooking time to more evenly heat up the food! It is especially accommodating for small dishes.

It has a mind of it's own!

  • Summary: We moved into a home that has this microwave - Mine does what it wants.....it's so bizzare....I have figured out the quirks, like shutting the door 3 times to make it shut off and looking in to make sure the dish rotates to make sure it's acutally on....

Low profile and low quality finish.

  • Summary: Ok unit. Bought it due to size considerations. For the money the quality and finish are disappointing. The stainless steel finish is as thin as it gets.

Unreliable. Two dead in two years.

  • Summary: We purchased the Spacemaker II in stainless steel for our kitchen remodel as it was supposedly the best in class. Our cabinetmaker had a low profile custom shelf and enclosure built for it. After about a year (just out of warranty) it died.

Smells like electrical fire if used 1+ minutes... now smokes, too!

Bookish Reviewer, Amazon

  • Summary: I saw all the reviews about peeling paint so contacted the company, which assured me that recent models (2012+) did not have this defect. Well, I went ahead and bought one because prior home owners did custom cabinet that only fits this microwave.

  • Summary: This is a direct replacement for one that quit after a fairly long run of excellent service. I had to purchase and install the GE recommended surround bracket for the original installation. That fit was perfect. Trying to install this current "only" replacement oven offered by GE,.....

I have had this microwave for a couple of weeks and the little piece around the push in lever is already coming unglued!

  • Summary: I have had this microwave for a couple of weeks and the little piece around the push in lever is already coming unglued! The piece that surrounds the push in lever is attached with what looks like double sided tape and it is losing its adhesive?! Talk about cheap!

  • Summary: If I could give this zero stars I would. This is our second GE spacesaver microwave. The first was purchased in 2008 when we remodeled our kitchen. The paint on the interior roof began to peel so we had to replace it.

Cheaply Made

  • Summary: Thin metal foil surface piece peeled off almost immediately. Glued back on, but will probably happen again in other places. Door is flimsy and bends easily so it requires a careful and firm slam to shut properly or the latch doesn't catch and it won't operate.
