The Cuisinart CMW 200 is a good microwave toaster oven combo option for most folks.  It has an excellent range of functionality and is affordably priced.

Design and Features

The dark tinted glass and brushed stainless steel exterior makes this is a good looking machine.  The interior is also stainless steel which is a nice feature because it is easy to sanitize and does not absorb any odors.

It has an LCD display with touchpad controls, and this is where the magic happens… The Cuisinart CMW 200 has 9 preset options: beverage, fresh vegetable, cake, potato, popcorn, frozen vegetable, roast chicken and pizza.

In addition, it has a really neat multi-stage cooking option, an advanced technology which automatically shifts from one function to another.  For example, you can defrost a casserole for 10 minutes, bake in the microwave at 100% power for 5 minutes then grill for 1 minute to melt the cheese to top-brown the casserole.

The Cuisinart CMW 200 includes a rotating 12 inch glass tray, reversible grill rack, recipe book and a limited 3-year warranty.

It has a 1.2 cubic foot (32 litres) capacity and measures 21.20 inches (length) by 19.00 inches (width) by 12.2 inches (height).  If you are installing this in a cabinet you should ensure there is at least 6 inches clearance at the back to allow sufficient ventilation to prevent the unit overheating.

Cuisinart CMW 200 Performance

Overall, the Cuisinart CMW 200 performed well during testing, although we felt that the 1,000 watt power output was a little lacking at times.

The two most impressive (and useful!) settings for us were the defrost functions and convection baking.  The defrost function is very simple, you can choose to defrost food by weight or by time.

The convection baking option ensures food is cooked evenly and in a faster time, with no burned edges or frozen centres.  The Cuisinart CMW 200 can bake or roast with or without the microwave function.

Verdict

If you are looking for a microwave toaster oven combo then the Cuisinart CMW 200 is a good choice.  It features a stylish design, good functionality and for $180 is good value for money given all the things you can do with it.
