After hitting ALL the review and product ratings websites, and looking at the store my wife and I decided to buy GE Profile when we wanted to upgrade and install an over-the-range microwave. We had some very clear points that we wanted in a microwave and range set and feel that GE Profile really is quality. So let me talk about the microwave here since we've had it over a month and put it through it's paces with a family of five.

The GE Profile PVM1870SMS has everything we wanted and does it right.

This microwave is a vast improvement over past microwaves we've owned. It heats evenly and quickly. When reheating a dinner plate I have not found the typical hot and cold spots, its very good here. The one button beverage heat really does the job well too.

My 6 yr old daughter and 13 yr old son both tell me that the popcorn feature works perfectly every time.

This microwave handles big dishes and is very roomy.

The controls are intuitive and are configured well. We passed on some higher end models just because they were too complex.

Lighting - something you might not think of when looking at these products, and other stores don't have them set up where you can compare. Many brands do a poor job of lighting your cook-top. They either have a single lamp that is under powered or the location is poor. This model has two lamps with a high and low setting - so thumbs up for GE. The only thing they could have done better was to move them closer to the front. Go to Abt, and check them out, play with the features and then buy this one!

If you're reading about fan noise in comments you need to ignore these for the most part. Any fan that is going to move heat and smoke properly will make some noise. However you do get what you pay for, we compared lower priced models and brands and some are better than others. The XL1800 is better than most, I have it venting through a duct instead of back into the room although both options are fine.

Looks great, and does a great job!

Power Issue - Microwave Shuts Off Periodically

This microwave model (PVM1870SM1SS) was installed by the home builder as part of the GE stainless steel appliance package when I purchased my new home. So far, no issues with the oven or dishwasher, but I’ve been experiencing issues with the microwave for the past two years. I’ve had this microwave since January 2009 and experience issues of the microwave periodically shutting off. When it shuts off, it powers back on after about 3 seconds, which would then require resetting the clock. When I start my cook time again, the microwave shuts off after running for 3-5 seconds, and I would have to reset the clock again. Sometimes, the microwave does not power back on, but if I bang it with my hand around the edges, the power would come back on. Eventually, this problem would go away for a while, but will happen again; I’ve been dealing with this for the last two years. I notice this periodic issue occurs after I microwave a food item that produces a lot of humidity. Most recently, I microwaved two frozen burritos (covered with a plastic microwave cover), and a day later, I still have issues with the microwave shutting off. It also happens when I microwave soup (also with a cover). Eventually, this issue will go away, but I know one day, it won’t power back up. For a while, I thought the home builder was at fault for improperly installing the microwave, but after seeing other reviews of a similar nature, I’m beginning to believe it is a faulty microwave. I’m very disappointed with this GE product and likely will not buy another one.

We have had this microwave for several years now and it's as strong as ever! Too bad it is no longer made or we would have bought a stainless steel one for our new kitchen.

junk

By 

from northern va

Comments about GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 Black Microwave Oven:

This came with my house and not even 7 years past and I have to replace it. My parents bought a microwave when I was 10, and it still works. The only reason I will buy another is because I am getting ready to put the house on the market.

Worst Microwave Ever

Comments about GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 Black Microwave Oven:

Nothing like spending all that money. In less than 7 years, I've already had it repaired twice. My old college microwave was more dependable.

Horrible Quality...don't buy GE Microwaves

By 

from Boise, ID

Comments about GE Profile Spacemaker XL1800 Black Microwave Oven:

This microwave looks great...and that's the only good thing to say about it. After one year it started 'shorting' out and then magically coming back on a few minutes later. There was no rhyme or reason to it. We even paid for an electrician to come out and check the circuit...which was fine. The 'shorting' out continued to get more frequent and took longer to recover. Now (after only four years) it is completely dead and must be replaced. I won't be replacing it with another GE, even though the rest of my appliances match.
