    Highest Rated Consumer Review by the Community

  • High-End Performance & Features for Under $180! Really? Why, YES!

    Jul 14, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price tag ($150), large interior, ease-of-use, Sensor Popcorn Function
    Cons: Looks like a standard microwave.

    Summary: The world of convenience cooking grows ever more convoluted with seemingly dysfunctional or useless features becoming more and more opulent. Haha wow, that was a rather harsh way to begin, I should clarify my view a little bit. There are a LOT of ... read more

  • Common Problem is Easily Fixed

    Sep 30, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Gorgeous, powerful, easy to use
    Cons: Interior panel scorches easily when food spatters build up; Easy to fix it yourself

    Summary: We moved into our house shortly after all the appliances had been replaced in the kitchen, 5 years ago. I was immediately impressed with how nice this microwave looked. This was built in to the cabinetry with the stainless steel frame kit, and it is ... read more

  • Happy with mine

    Mar 18, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: One touch cooking buttons
    Cons: Have not found any

    Summary: Our church bought two of these about a year ago and we use them every Sunday. I know it's a different type workout from the workout one might get in a home, but they are used constantly for 30 minutes to an hour while everyone cooks or heats food for ... read more

  • Nice but not long-lived.

    Nov 10, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: good preset cook buttons. logical layout of the keypad. nice "built-in" kit available.
    Cons: life expectancy.

    Summary: After spending $250 for this beautiful GE Profile microwave in stainless steel, I was very disappointed that it lived only 22 months before blowing its circuitry. As with most small appliances today, repair costs are greater than its replacement cost ... read more

  • A Great Microwave

    Jul 17, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of one-touch features. Large interior accommodates large dishes.
    Cons: Clear/Off button could be more prominent.

    Summary: When my original GE microwave died after 15 years of flawless service it was a no-brainer that I would purchase another GE microwave. The JE1860 is a great product. It has one-touch features for popcorn, beverages, leftovers, vegetables, express ... read more

  • Worked fine for 3 years, then came the sparks and smoke!

    May 29, 2009 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Large size and relatively cheap price.
    Cons: Extra step to enter time, uneven cooking, relatively short life.

    Summary: Had the same experience others have described.  I was cooking a bag of popcorn last night when the microwave (GE JE1860WH) started making a loud unusual noise along with sparks, smoke and a horrible smell.  I turned it off and set it ... read more

  • MAJOR FLAWS - with TWO OF these GE JE1860 ovens.

    May 11, 2008 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Works very well - when it isn't setting itself on fire.
    Cons: Un-reliable,potentially dangerous! See other realistic reviews - just hasn't happened yet for the others.

    Summary: Had the same sparking/fire burn out problem as in other reviews - with my 2002 oven. So I warily bought another one in 2005, in order to avoid buying another expensive trim kit (a real rip-off in itself, costs almost as much as the oven for a few pieces ... read more

  • rust on the inside.....

    Nov 3, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Serves its purpose - very easy and accurate.
    Cons: RUST.

    Summary: I bought this several years ago. Within a short period of time I noticed what I thought was tomato sauce in the back where the back meets the bottom. Turns out it is rust. GE first tole me to buy microwave oven paint. I tried that but within a few ... read more

  • Works great - short life.

    Pros: Easy to use, clear function pad, great power.
    Cons: none

    Summary: Great microwave, easy to use, plenty of power and lots of great functions. Bought in 2000 started having problems with it losing power in year 2005, had it repaired (sensor) for $95.00. It lasted another year and a half. This time it was not repairable. ... read more

  • Not My Favorite Microwave!

    Feb 19, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Very large interior capacity
    Cons: Stainless Steel button never stays clean Unattractive trim kit

    Summary: After reading the reviews on here I can tell I got ripped off at paying $225 for this microwave PLUS $200 more for the trim kit. Anyway....it is a large microwave - I can fit large plates and bowls inside which is great. My biggest complaint is that ... read more

  • Only lasted 4 years!

    Nov 30, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Color......
    Cons: Lack of dependability, GE not willing to stand behind product.

    Summary: After 4 years of medium duty, this unit has failed and GE Service advises it cannot be repaired. The magnetron tube failed causing damage to the "burn wave guide, making the unit unrepairable, per GE. Although the Magnetron tube is under warranty for 10 ... read more

  • Mine died at 20 months

    Aug 29, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Easy to operate when it was working. Unit is attractive.
    Cons: You need to be able to depend on a microwave. Don't buy this one.

    Summary: This microwave just stopped working at 20 months. I called the product specialist and went through triage - yes there is power, it is plugged in, gave it time to reboot, etc. Then, GE offered to send someone out for $50 plus parts and labor. Shouldn't ... read more

  • turntable keeps breaking

    Mar 1, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Express Cook and Add 30 Seconds features for quick time setting
    Cons: Frequent turntable operation breakdown

    Summary: In the nine months that we've owned this oven, the turntable mechanism has broken three times. The piece that supports the glass turntable--the "rotating ring assembly"--cracks at the stem and can't be turned. While the piece is easily replaceable, ... read more

  • Button pushing that makes sense

    Sep 18, 2003 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Change power level while cooking - sensible add minute and express minute buttons. Turntable off/on
    Cons: None - I could go on forever about what didn't like on other microwaves

    Summary: After looking at 15 microwaves and bringing home 2 to try I finally stumbled on the GE 1860. While most of the others tried to bury me in 'menu-button-heaven' the GE just lets me get cooking with a couple of button pushes. 3 button pushes can get me 5 m ... read more
