Summary: To put it simply - this is a great little microwave that does every thing I need it to do - plus it is very easy to use even for a technologically challenged person like me. Yes, it is small, but it easily accommodates my full size Villeroy and Boch dinner plates. When using it to make popcorn in my Nordic Ware 12 cup popcorn popper, I set it for 4.5 minutes rather than using the automatic setting, and it is perfect every time.
Summary: I got this microwave over two years ago on sale at Belk's. I had a huge microwave that was an over the stove microwave that I was using on the counter and it was just too bulky so my mother found a great sale and bought this one for me. I basically got it for free and I hate it along w/ the rest of my family. You can barely fit a full size dinner plate in it so even warming up a large plate of food is difficult. The size however is not what bothers me about this unit.
Summary: The Cuisinart small microwave oven is just too small for anyone but a college student with limited space. It is not intuitive in its functions and makes alot of noise. It seems somewhat flimsy (cheap)compared to other Cuisinart products.
