Summary: I bought this microwave June 1, 2014, and on November 28 it stopped heating. I called Cuisinart and they told me to return to Macy's. I bought this online and had it delivered, because I don't live near a Macy's. Then she stated that she could help me open a ticket. She told me to pack it up, glass tray and all, and have it shipped back for repair. The logical side of me wonders why I need to pack and ship the glass tray back.
Summary: This is my 2nd Cuisinart stainless steel microwave. First one lasted forever, but finally gave up due to exhaustion! I have had no issues with this microwave, and that is why I chose to replace it with the exact same model. I love the stainless steel interior, as well as the attractive exterior. in reading some of the recent reviews, I hope my 2nd one proves to be as dependable as the first.
Summary: Replaced my old microwave with this one - sooooo glad I did!! Color says black - but it's really stainless steel with black trim. Good size for a family. Display panel is easy to read and easy to operate. Heats, defrosts and cooks well. Signal is a little bit loud, but it doesn't bother me. Excellent purchase for the price!!
Summary: Am very happy with it, goes with everything else in the kitchen. Lightweight to move around. Wattage is not as powerful as my old one but that is because I did not read the description fully. All said we are very pleased.
Summary: This microwave is just okay. It's not as powerful as I thought it would be. I expected quicker heating and cooking times for the size of this microwave but that's not the case. The cycle complete beeper no longer works.
