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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Love it


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.

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


This is the perfect color instead of going with stainless like most people nowadays. Its 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.

Great Microwave


I bought this to match the appliances I already bought and love it. The only thing I wish I could change about it is the rotating glass plate is smaller than my previous microwave. Overall I still love it and love the fact it has a light that turns on while microwaving or if the door is open. It also alerts you with a soft beep every minute or so if you forget you microwaved something in there.

The Only Microwave That Would Work


This is the only viable microwave I could find that could be mounted underneath a cabinet that is not over a range. We have a range hood over our range and wanted to raise up a countertop-size microwave to utilize the countertop underneath it. The wattage is just right at 800W. Higher wattage microwaves cook too quickly and cause excessive spattering. The sensor modes actually work fairly well too better than our previous microwave. Good amount of space for its small size - its mainly used for reheating mugs and individual plates and havent had issues with these tasks. My only complaint is that the cost of the mounting kit sold separately is much too high. We purchased bolts/washers/spacers to do the mounting without the kit and this worked well. If the kit were maybe a quarter of the cost the convenience might be worth it.

If we knew about the 800 watts being LOW compared to other microwaves we would have looked elsewhere. . We NOW realize that most frozen food cooking instructions are based on 1000 watt microwaves. We seem to spend way too much time adding 25 to cooking times to compensate for the lower wattage on this one. Otherwise the design and functionality are good. But lower wattage is valueless and detracts from an otherwise good appliance.

Sleek Design


Our previous microwave was a GE Spacemaker which was built into our cabinets 22 years ago. It had a nice trim kit to complete the look. We were ecstatic when we found this GE microwave to fit into the same space without having to alter our cabinet. The trim kit which is sold separately also worked perfect to complete the built in look once again. We have been very pleased with the selection of our GE Profile appliances which have lasted 22 years in our kitchen. It is time to begin replacing the appliances and we are very pleased GE sells appliances that will fit right back into the spaces of our existing appliances and we love this Slate finish Thank you GE

Disapointing replacement


This was the only product that would fit in the cut out of my cabinet. It replaced a 12 year old GE Profile. It is of much cheaper materials particularly the vent trim. Also it has smaller inside dimentions.
