GE JES1290 1000 Watts Convection / Microwave Oven

Don't beleive other reviews that say you can't set the temp of this oven. You can.  Someone didn't read the instructions.

Panasonic NNCF781S

We were very keen to replace the old microwave with a convection microwave but it's turned out to be awful. The temperature is uneven, nothing cooks the first time, the convection component is totally ineffective. The light inside is so dim you have to...

GE Profile Spacemaker Series JVM1540DPWW 1.5 cu. ft. Over-the-Range Microwave...

If you are buying this appliance with the intentions of using it for a year or less, it's not a bad value. However, if you are like any rational person that does not want to replace appliances every year or two, avoid this like the plague. I chose this...

Ge JES1142SF 1100 Watts Microwave Oven

Well, I liked this microwave. It lasted about four years for us. We received it as a house warming gift and used it mostly to reheat dinners and make popcorn. It has a few cooking options like an option for popcorn, reheat, and frozen pizza, but I used...

Panasonic NNSF550W

This is he very best Microwave we have ever purchased, it has performed to our great satisfaction. Some of the best points is that it's very easy to clean and use, it doesn't have a turn table, which allows you to place rectangular dishes into it. We...

Smeg SA37X

We had this microwave built into our kitchen and had to have it repaired several times. When it finally arced and shorted it wasn't worth repairing and as it had to fit the Smeg frame I had no choice but to buy the same model. Now the same thing has...

Magic Chef 1.6 Cu Ft Countertop Microwave Stainless Steel MCD1611ST

I agree with other posters of one star - total crap. While I was unhappy throughout its use, stopped working in one year. Good riddance.

Panasonic NN-SD786S / NN-SD686S

This microwave is good but has flaws. The microwave is powerful at 1100 watts. Well designed, looks modern. The flaw that this microwave has is that the plastic that the glass sits on is flimsy and can easily snap. The door closing mechanism is poorly...

Oster OGB61101 1.1-Cubic-Feet Microwave Oven, Stainless Steel

Like most others that have left reviews the thing works for a short time and then quits. The microwave no longer turns on and has become a rather large timer and clock sitting on my counter. To compound the problems I live overseas on an Air Force Base...

Bosch HMT35M653A

We have had our Bosch inbuilt Microwave for about 3.5-5Yrs and to be honest its been a great device up until now. Our Problem seems to be the same as every one else main gripe. It starts and goes for about 10-20sec then stops and resets the clock to...

Panasonic NN-ST659W

Got to where you had to open and shut the door half a dozen times to get it to work so took the cover off to have a look. The door close mechanism hangs off a flimsy piece of sheet metal with 2 screws on one side and moves sideways every-time you open...

Lumina (Aldi) 34L 1000W

I usually love Aldi's products but haven't had much luck with their appliances. My mother purchased this as it was lightweight and small size but the turntable seemed to stall intermittently while turning and unit got quite hot on top while in use. We...

Sharp R890NS / R890NW

Amazing microwave, heats food quickly and is very easy to use. This is my partner and my first microwave and I don't think we will stray away from this brand in the future. Looks very nice as well and matches our other kitchen appliances so bonus ha ha...

GE JVM1653 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

I purchased a house with the brand new microwave, (Dec, 2007), and primarily used it for popcorn and reheating the occasional plate. This was used literally maybe 2 - 4 times a week for less than 3 minutes at a time. Last week, I heard a strange...

GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

One of the few ''new'' items in the home I bought last year is a GE Spacemaker Microwave Model# JVM1650. I'm not sure exactly when the previous owner installed it but it was around 2002, so it has been in use for about 8 years. Imagine my ...

Whirlpool Gold 30" 1.8 cu. ft. Microhood Combination Microwave Oven

The microwave made a zapping / sparking sound then quite heating. We had it fixed once which cost over $200.00. It just broke again with the same issue. Whirlpool has to be aware of this issue and needs to fix it for free.

Blanco BMO280X

This microwave came with my 'off the plan' apartment purchase, and has just died after 7 years. I guess that's not a bad innings for something made in China, especially when I had a hand in its death. While on this subject: There is a REAL difference...

Rival Microwave Oven 0.7 Cu Ft, White

Had this for over a year and am very happy. I don't use microwaves a lot, but have never had an issue with this one. Yes it's only 700 watts but perfect for me. Only complaint is somehow the turntable plate cracked after over a year? Otherwise for the...
