As it was well within the warranty period, I contacted Cuisinart customer service (the number on the warranty). I spoke with rep "A", who initially told me that this was a repairable unit and that I would need to ship it to their service center, but then upon hearing the actual electrical problem, placed me briefly on hold and returned to tell me that they would replace the unit and that I would be required to send the defective unit back to them at their Glen Dale, Arizona address upon receipt of the new one (the shipping will be about 25% of the cost of a brand new unit). However, she could not tell me when I would receive the new unit because they are "on backorder" (a term which, I have since discovered upon some additional research, really means "we aren't going to process your request" in Cuisinart corporate language). I was told that I could contact the service center again to check on status of the back order periodically if I didn't receive the new unit in the next 4 - 6 weeks.
I called to check "back order" status 6 days later, and was then told by rep "M" that the order to ship the new unit from the warehouse had been canceled by the company. I asked why, and was told that this is a repairable unit and that I would need to send the defective unit to Cuisinart for evaluation before I could get a new unit. I explained that I had spoken to another rep 6 days prior who authorized replacement, and was told that the information I had was wrong. I then asked WHEN someone intended to contact me to tell me that 1) I would not be receiving a new unit and 2) I would need to send my defective unit BEFORE they would process my warranty claim, and was told that nobody was going to notify me - I had to call them at the call center. (In other words, had I not called back, I would have been sitting here waiting indefinitely to receive a replacement that was never going to come. I am certain that this is even more convenient when the defect appears only a few weeks before the warranty expires.)
I then tried to confirm the address I had been given by "A", and only then was told that I was to send my unit to an East Windsor, New Jersey address (not the Arizona address). I asked how long it would take after receipt of my defective unit before a new unit is sent out, and I was told "4 - 6 weeks". By this point, I was pretty aggravated, and asked if there was some way to expedite it since we have already waited a week as the direct result of Cuisinart's customer service center, and we are now at an effective two months replacement time (1 week delay plus 1 week to ship to NJ plus 4-6 weeks to process and ship the new one to us + 1 week shipping time from the warehouse). The answer was no.
Do NOT buy this unit (unless you live in Glen Dale, Arizona or East Windsor, New Jersey, and don't mind driving across town to drop off the unit for replacement a year after you buy it). Do NOT trust the electrical system on this unit.
Cuisinart warranties are not worth the paper that they are written on because the process that Cuisinart uses in warranty claims makes it so difficult to actually address a warranty issue that most people will likely just give up. This makes the company look good (offering a 3-year warranty) while costing them very little (they will only end up having to honor a very tiny percentage of warranty claims despite selling defective products).
The Cusinart is about the size of a large microwave oven and looks just like one from the outside. I had no problem finding a home for it in my modest kitchen, but those with very small kitchen may find it difficult to place, especially since it needs space to circulate heat properly. The exterior is done in brushed stainless steel except for the left hand side of the door and the control panel. The interior is completely stainless steel as well. Overall, it's very nicely made, looks upscale, and will match pretty much any kitchen décor. Included with the Cusinart is a glass turntable and a double sided cooking rack. The rack has different length feet on each side you can place food closer to the cooking element, or layer dishes. Lastly, I'd like to point out that the Cusinart has a 3-year warrantee.
Using the Cusinart is easy. You simply select the cooking mode, choose a temperature (or microwave power setting), set the time, and hit start. The Cusinart offers a handful of cooking modes; there is microwave, convection bake, convection roast, defrost, convection fast bake, grill, and keep warm. The convection roast and fast bake use a combination of microwave and traditional heating. There are also a handful of presents and a memory setting. When using any of the baking modes the Cusinart will display the oven's current temperature and alert you when it is preheated. You can also program it to spend a certain amount of time in one mode and then switch to another.
In use the Cusinart works well. I used it as a traditional microwave to heat up beverages and it works just as you would expect. With 1000 watts of microwave power it heats up quickly. I used the convection setting to roast garlic with the rack on the upper level. The garlic came out perfectly. Lastly, I used the convection roast setting to cook a 3.5 pound marinated chicken. I placed the chicken directly on the rack on the lower level with a dinner plate underneath it to catch the drippings. The chicken took 55 minutes to cook and came out golden and crispy on the outside and juicy and perfectly cooked on the inside. Since the Cusinart has a square interior, without any odd cutouts or bumps, it's easy to fit items inside. When running the Cusinart is fairly quiet and no louder than a traditional microwave except for the occasional knocking / rattling noise. Sadly, the turntable is not very smooth, so make sure you don't fill containers up to the top with liquids or they could splash out.
One important thing to keep in mind is that when you are using the convection modes the Cusinart's exterior gets very hot to the touch. The left hand side is extremely hot. It's too hot to touch or place objects near. The top of the door and the top of the unit get very hot as well but not as badly as the left hand side. The right hand side and the front of the door stays cool, however. When I bake with the Cusinart I move objects on the left hand side out of the area and pull it away from the wall so it has more clearance above the unit.
Cleaning the Cusinart is easy. I used a damp soapy sponge to clean up the interior. The cooking rack cleaned up perfectly in the bottom rack of my dishwasher.
All in all... a nicely designed all-in-one appliance that does it all well.
06/17/2017 Update: I'm still using it and it works great. I've been making dinner in it during the summer to keep the amount of heat in the kitchen down. I make a lot of chicken / potato dishes using the convection roast setting.
