All other Cuisinart appliances I've loved but after this purchase have lost a little faith
8 February 2015
Summary: The 7, 8, and 9 minutes don't work. Can only operate setting for 30 seconds and whole minutes, not worth the price or purchase. My parents ordered one a few years prior and they had the same issue. So they clearly have not made improvements in years.
Summary: We have been very pleased with this microwave for the 14 months. Looks nice, works well, feels solidly built, especially for the price. But it inexplicably stops working after 14 months. Imagine my surprise when others have reported it failing after 14 months.
Summary: Expecting to get a good product that would last, I purchased this microwave at Macy's and hand carried it home. It has worked most of the time for 3 years. The ongoing problem has been keeping the tray rotating. There is no clearing or unplugging you can do to make it work.
Excerpt: We received this microwave for a wedding gift. We had to exchange it twice within a year because it stopped working. Luckily, the store where we registered has a forgiving return policy. We have been using the 3rd unit we purchased for a few years now. It works, but it doesn't work very well.
Our expectations were too high when we purchase the product.

Summary: Our expectations were too high when we purchase the product. Cuisinart 1.0 Cu. Ft. in Brushed Stainless Steel Microwave Oven. The reason we are giving this Cuisinart microwave oven a 2 stars review is because our expectations were too high when we purchasing the product.
Summary: I bought this based on good experiences with Cuisinart products. Nice looking unit, but the performance and reliability is lacking. Noise: It is so loud that I have to shut the bedroom door in the morning to avoid waking my wife.
Summary: I've had two of these microwaves. I bought the first one (black & stainless) and loved the way it looked and worked. It just all of a sudden died after 3-4 months of use. I pushed the start button. It started for a couple of seconds, then shut off.
UPDATE: CMW-100 Solved! the would run as if normal, but didn't heat problem

Summary: Update- unfortunately, the outlet I bought didn't work after all. One of the most disappointing purchases I've made. It worked for a few days then it did the same thing - lights on, spinning dish, but no heat.
Summary: I didn't buy this item from Amazon but thought I would give a review anyway. I have only had this unit for a year and all of a sudden there is no sound, when items are through cooking. No sound when I push any buttons, just all of a sudden died.
