Profile JES2251SJ 24" 2.2 cu. ft. Capacity, 1200 Watt Countertop Microwave, Child Lockout, Extra Large Capcity, Sensor Cooking, Warming Oven Mode, Inverter Technology, in Stainless Steel is rated 4.465587044534413 out of 5 by 494.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microwave We've had lots of microwaves but this one is the best we've had, so far. Inverter technology is fantastic because it actually "turns down" the power rather than just cycling the power from 0% to 100% for the appropriate percent of time. No mechanical problems except a VERY intermittent failure of the turn table to rotate. Display is easy to read, controls are easy to work with. Sorry about those few others who have had problems. I'd say it was probably operator problems as we've experienced nothing like any of their issues. Would definitely buy again and will be sad if we can't find an equivalent model when this one finally dies. Manufactured 8 years ago, used daily and still going strong.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good oven, awkward controls We purchased this oven from a local big box retailer because ours broke and we could not wait for a long selection process. Reviews were good, including Consumer Reports, so we went ahead. The oven heats well. However, the time controls require m/s input followed by start, while our previous oven permitted single key start. Second, and a deal killer for us, the "timer" function cannot be used concurrently with the oven. Finally, "power" requires a keystroke repetition function instead of single key entry, very inefficient. So this is ok on heating, but poor on convenience features.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor engineering I love the idea of the inverter technology, but this microwave does no seem to heat things as fast as our old one with less wattage.. but the WORST thing is... the only thing that usually gets inverted is ME. The way the screen is set up you actually have to bend over to tell the TIME on this microwave. The way it is designed, the faceplate blocks your view of the timer. I also miss the easy use of the buttons on older models. Add that to the fact that it is nearly impossible to get a WHITE microwave, so we were stuck with stainless, and let's say I m not thrilled with GE.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great looking and functionality until...... Bought this microwave 10 months ago to replace a Sharp microwave I had for 25 years. Nice features, great looking until it stopped working. Could turn it on; it ran for all of 22 seconds, then shut off - no heat. How frustrating that things are not made to last any more. It has now sat at a GE repair center for 3 weeks while they wait on parts. What's happening to quality products????? In addition I was told if I couldn't take it to a repair center it would cost me between $65 and $85 for someone to come to my home. Fortunately there was a center 20 miles away.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor user interface. I bought this microwave because it had a high rating from Consumer Reports, but I think they made a mistake. It is supposed to be a counter-top model, and I have mine on my counter. However, I have to bend down (and I am short) or be several feet out to see the display clearly; the background circuitry of the display is visible and confusing, except when looking exactly perpendicular to the surface of the display. Also, the rules for using the keypad are extremely inflexible and absurd. For example, to key in the lowest possible power setting, you have to press the power button ten times in a row! Other simple shortcuts commonly found on ovens from other companies are simply missing. I have other complaints, but these are the ones I notice every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE my Microwave I had my first GE Profile Microwave 9 years. When I find something that I can depend on, I don't go anywhere else. Not one time did I have a problem with it and it was used every day as I cook and bake from scratch. I was worried I wouldn't be able to find one comparable to it so I was elated that they still make them! It's worth the money to spend on this microwave. The features are easy to use too. I'm picky about how my kitchen looks and this fits right in nicely. If you keep making them, I'll keep buying it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product is a good value for the price. We purchased this product because it fit perfectly into the space we had available when rennovating the kitchen. We have found the microwave to work well for our purposes but does not have many of the features we were used to on our previous microwave (fewer sensor cooking options) and it runs pretty hot. It is also very difficult to keep the outside free from smudges and finger prints. Overall, I feel it is a good value for the price and works fine for our needs (popcorn, reheating, etc.).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BIG AND POWERFUL Purchased unit as a replacement for a somewhat smaller capacity and power one This microwave is quite large and certainly powerful enough for most food items. Though I do not use a microwave for cooking meats or fish, have occassionally used to defrost same. Primarily use to cook vegetables, i.e.: corn on the cob; and to rewarm items such as coffee, frozen bread, etc. Perhaps unit is overkill for my purposes, but comes in handy when having a large number of guests to feed at the same time.
