Comment:
I bought my GE Profile Advantium Over the Range Microwave in 2002. We have used our microwave multiple times daily since we bought it. I have never had an issue with it over the past 10+ years. The only replacement part we had to purchase was the Halogen light bulb about 2 years ago. Our microwave finally stopped microwaving/heating/etc. about 3 months ago. It certainly was a workhorse & we certainly got our money's worth out of it. I am planning to buy it's newest version Profile Advantium Over the Range Microwave replacement just like my old one this week.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

We get transferred due to my husbands work and this is the third Profile that I have owned. I have tried others and sent them back and installed a profile instead. The timer is the most wonderful feature for me. With this microwave, you can be microwaving something and need the timer for something else....and you can set it for that use. YEAH!! Ladies, it is efficient, pretty and works well.

Comment:
This unit has been been in my house for 6 days (installed by national retailer) and I've yet to use the microwave function, because I've been in love with the Convection Bake feature.<br /><br />Honeymoon's over. While preheating the oven to a whole 375 degrees, the interior glass shattered. FIFTH USE. The retailer puts the ball in GE's court. GE is going to take a week to fix it.<br /><br />A google search reveals a good bit of this problem of GE ovens, in general, with shattering glass problems.<br /><br />Sooooo thankful my chef friends talked me out of the Cafe one of these! I'm livid now, 4 days before Christmas, but I can't imagine where I'd be with 500 more bucks into a known problem.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
