Love it! Reliable, shiney and beautiful. Very easy to install too.
It as bad as the reviews say ..
I was not going to get this item because of the crap reviews, but I got a deal on an open box replacement PEM31 and other trim kit options are very limited - I saw no options besides custom - so I got an open box kit from Best Buy for $110. Ok, so yeah, itâ€™s a durable plastic material on the trim so if you are doing a $100K remodel, maybe rethink your strategy. But for me, it was very easy to install, and it doesnâ€™t look bad. There is equal space around the oven and itâ€™s open behind the trim in places for venting. Overall it looks decent, itâ€™s not the centerpiece of our kitchen but it does the job and was very easy to install.
Trim gaps look cheap
Like other reviewers have stated- we bought a house that obviously had a GE microwave based on the cabinet cutout dimensions. Our options were to get the PEM31 microwave or change the cabinet. I was already not happy about spending $350 on a 800 watt microwave and a $150 on the trim. But to have the trim look so cheap adds insult to injury. I get the gaps on the outside of the trim that allow for airflow, and I could even deal with the part being plastic. But the gaps on the inside of trim are ridiculous. As someone else said, the inside trim should AT LEAST be flush with your own product. If you are reading this and do not have cabinet cutout dimensions that limit you to the PEM31, I would keep looking.
Misses the Point of being a Trim Kit
I purchases this trim kit for the PEM31SFSS GE microwave to replace our old GE. The trim kit is subpar to the prior as there is about a quarter inch gap around the entire microwave. We have white cabinets so it becomes very noticeable. Trim kits should be flush to their products, not provide gaps. Also, there are air flow cutouts on the top and bottom that are about half inch wide, so anything can fall down into the microwave cavity - at least put some slats in there! Poorly designed product. Currently debating whether to return both the microwave and the kit because of the poor fitting trim kit. Whoever says this kit is a perfect fit has no attention to detail. I attached a pic of the old and new to show how this kit fits versus how it should fit.
This trim kit is the worst I have seen from GE.The installation was done by professional cabinet people. The face plate is plastic not stainless steel. The fit is horrible. There are HUGE gaps all around. The holding screws are visible from the side. We ripped it out and built a custom wood unit.
