Our GE Profile Spacemaker Microwave is a gem. GE, in my opinion, has consistently made long-lasting and innovative products as far back as I can remember. The majority of our major appliances in our kitchen and laundry room are GE Profiles. The warranty on this product is also quite good and forgiving. The features that I most appreciate in this model are 'one-touch' whereby I can pop popcorn bags with various size choices, "bake" potatoes based on weight, and defrost many items with a 'no brainer' menu. It has the ability to 'sense' when foods are re-heated thoroughly and ready to serve. To save space in your kitchen is a blessing, but to have a unit with all the necessary features for day-to-day cooking is a blessing. I am currently unemployed, but I can imagine that if someone were busy working a full-time schedule and having to care for family as well, this unit would be greatly appreciated. GE products should be a staple in anyone's home.
