This appliance must be grounded. In
the event of an electrical short circuit,
grounding reduces the risk of electric
shock by providing an escape wire for the
electric current. This appliance is equipped
with a cord with a grounding wire and
grounding plug. The plug must be plugged
into an outlet that is properly installed and
grounded. Consult a qualified electrician
or serviceman if the grounding instructions
are not completely understood or if doubt
exists as to whether the appliance is
properly grounded. If it is necessary to
use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire
extension cord that has a 3-pronged
grounding plug, and a 3-slot receptacle
that will accept the plug on the appliance.
iNtroduction
1.A short power-supply cord is provided to
reduce the risks resulting from becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer
cord.
Cuisinart is about to change the way
you cook! With the debut of this new
Convection Microwave Oven and Grill,
you have a broader range of cooking
options than ever before. Get ready to
enjoy the speed of a microwave, the
quality of convection baking, and all the
top-browning talents of a grill. Best of all,
your new oven is engineered with preset
controls and combination settings to
take the guesswork out of temperature
and timing. You can even program it to
automatically switch from one function to
another. And it all happens right on your
countertop…time to get cooking!
2.Longer cord sets or an extension cord
should not be used unless the following
precautions are followed (see 3, below).
3.If a long cord or extension cord is used:
• The marked electrical rating of the cord
set or extension cord should match the
rating of the appliance.
• The extension cord must be a groundingtype 3-wire cord.
• The longer cord should be arranged so
that it will not drape over the countertop
or tabletop where it can be pulled on by
children or tripped over.

humidity and the moisture in food will
influence the amount of moisture that
condenses in the oven.
8.Plug your oven into a standard
household outlet. Be sure the voltage
and the frequency are the same as the
voltage and the frequency on the rating
label.
Generally, covered foods will not cause
as much condensation as uncovered
ones. Vents on the oven back must not be
blocked.
After using convection, grill/combination
or Convec. Roast, you will hear the sound
of the cooling fan. The fan may operate
depending on the oven temperature.
WARNING: Do not install oven over a
range cooktop or other heat-producing
appliance. If improperly installed near or
over a heat source, the oven could be
damaged and the warranty would be void.
Be aware that, unlike microwave-only
ovens, convection microwave ovens have
a tendency to become hot.
The accessible surfaces may be hot during
operation.
The oven is hot whenever the top grill, or
both grill or convection symbols are lighted
in the display.
ABOUT YOUR OVEN
NEVER use the oven without the turntable
and support or turn the turntable over so
that a large dish can be placed in the oven.
The turntable will turn both clockwise and
counterclockwise.
The oven is for food preparation only.
It should not be used to dry clothes or
newspapers.
Your oven is rated 1000 watts for the
microwave by using the IEC Test Procedure
method. In using recipes or package
directions, check food a minute or two
before the minimum time and add time
accordingly.
ALWAYS have food in the oven when it
is on to absorb the microwave energy.
When using the oven at power levels below
100%, you may hear the magnetron cycling
on and off. It is normal for the exterior of
the oven to be warm to the touch when
cooking or reheating. Condensation is a
normal part of microwave cooking. Room

ABOUT COOKWARE
above will help you decide what utensils
and coverings should be used with each
feature. Make sure the utensil does not
touch the interior walls during cooking.
It is not necessary to buy all new
cookware. Many pieces already in your
kitchen can be used successfully in your
new convection microwave oven. The chart
8
Materials you can use
in microwave
3.Carefully feel the material or container.
If it is warm, do not use it for microwave
cooking.
Arcing is sparks or electric flashes that
crackle or pop. Arcing can produce heat
that is quite intense and can damage the
interior of the microwave or containers
being used in the microwave. It can also
cause fire.
4.Do not exceed 1 minute cooking time.
ABOUT MICROWAVE
COOKING
Arrange food carefully. Place thickest
areas towards outside of dish.
Arcing occurs when metal containers
are used in the microwave and can also
occur with the use of metal skewers, metal
clamps, or twist ties for plastic bags. To
prevent arcing, use the charts to determine
which materials are microwave safe, or
follow instructions from container/wrap
manufacturer.
• Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest
amount of time indicated and add more
as needed. Food severely overcooked can
smoke or ignite.
• Cover foods while cooking. Check recipe
or cookbook for suggestions: paper
towels, wax paper, microwave plastic
wrap or a lid. Covers prevent spattering
and help foods to cook evenly.
Plastic cookware designed for microwave
cooking is very useful, but should be used
carefully. Even microwave-safe plastic
may not be as tolerant of overcooking
conditions as are glass or ceramic
materials and may soften or char if
subjected to short periods of overcooking.
In longer exposures to overcooking, the
food and cookware could ignite.
• Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum
foil any thin areas of meat or poultry to
prevent overcooking before dense, thick
areas are cooked thoroughly.
• Stir foods from outside to center of dish
once or twice during cooking, if possible.
Follow these guidelines:
• Turn foods over once during microwaving
to speed cooking of such foods as
chicken and hamburgers. Large items like
roasts must be turned over at least once.
Use microwave-safe plastics only
and use them in strict compliance
with the cookware manufacturer’s
recommendations.
• Rearrange foods such as meatballs
halfway through cooking both from top to
bottom and from the center of the dish to
the outside.
Do not microwave empty containers.
Do not permit children to use plastic
cookware without complete supervision.
• Add standing time. Remove food from
oven and stir, if possible. Cover for
standing time which allows the food to
finish cooking without overcooking.
CONTAINERS
CAUTION: Personal Injury Hazard
Tightly closed containers could explode.
Closed containers should be opened and
plastic pouches should be pierced before
cooking.
• Check for doneness. Look for signs
indicating that cooking temperatures
have been reached.
There may be certain non-metallic
materials that are not safe to use for
microwaving. If in doubt, you can test the
material/container in question following the
procedure below.
Material/Container Test:
1.Fill a microwave-safe container with 1
cup of cold water (250ml) along with the
material or container in question.
2.Cook on maximum power for 30
seconds.

• Keep MicroGuide cover clean. Food
residue can cause arcing and/or fires.
To test for doneness, insert a meat thermometer into a thick or dense area away
from fat or bone. NEVER leave the thermometer in the food during cooking, unless
it is approved for microwave oven use.
• Use care when removing items from the
oven so that the utensil, your clothes or
accessories do not touch the safety door
latches.

CONVECTION COOKING
With convection cooking, you can use your
Cuisinart oven as a traditional oven. The
microwave function is not used.
During convection cooking, a heating
element is used to raise the temperature
of the air inside the oven. A fan gently
circulates this heated air throughout the
oven, over and around the food, producing
golden brown exteriors and rich moist
interiors.
Because the heated air is kept constantly
moving, preventing a layer of cooler air
from developing around food, some foods
cook faster than in regular oven cooking.
Also, foods lose less moisture and are able
to retain nutrients better.
This oven can be programmed for ten
different cooking temperatures for up to 99
minutes, 99 seconds.
4.Press number keys 3, 0, 0 to set the
cooking time.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
CONVECTION
• The oven should not be used without
the turntable in place, and the turntable
should never be restricted so that it
cannot rotate. You may remove the
turntable when preheating the oven
and when preparing food to be cooked
directly on the turntable. Be sure to
replace it in oven before cooking.
• Do not cover turntable or rack with
aluminum foil. It interferes with airflow that
cooks food.
Your oven can be programmed to combine
preheating and convection cooking. You
can preheat to the convection temperature
desired.
A.Convection Cooking with Preheating
For example, you want to preheat to
350º F. and then cook 25 minutes at the
same temperature.
1.Press Convection once. The oven will
display 100F and Conv indicator will
light.
2.Press the number key 7 to set the
temperature to 350°.
• Round pizza pans are excellent cooking
utensils for many convection-only items.
Choose pans that do not have extended
sides.
3.Press Start/+30SEC. to start preheating.
4.The temperature will flash while the oven
reaches the desired temperature. The
buzzer will beep twice to remind you to
open the door, put food into the oven,
then close the door.
• You can preheat the oven to the
appropriate temperature before placing
the food in the oven.
5.Press number keys 2, 5, 0, 0 to set the
cooking time. The maximum time is 99
minutes 99 seconds.
• When preparing conventional oven
recipes, it is important to check food
about 5 to 10 minutes before the
expected finish time, due to variables
such as the temperature of the food when
first placed in the oven, quantity of food
in the oven, and your preferred level of
“doneness”, etc.
6.Press Start/+30SEC. to start cooking.
Cooking time will count down on the
display.
NOTE:
• Cooking time cannot be entered until
the preheating temperature is reached.
When the temperature is reached,
place the food in the oven and enter
the cooking time.
• If not completely done,continue cooking
in oven until the food reaches the
expected level of “doneness.”
• Use the provided grill rack for multi level
cooking.
• If the time is not entered within 5
minutes, the oven will stop preheating.
The signal will beep 5 times to alert
you.
• Best results are achieved when foods are
baked/roasted on the provided grill rack
to ensure even airflow.
B.Convection Cooking (Without
Preheating Function)
• The lower rack position is used for most
baking and roasting tasks. Use the upper
rack position for grilling and browning.
1.Press Convection once. The oven will
display 100F.
When Roasting Meat and Poultry
2.Press the convection temperature key to
select the temperature you need.
• Meats and poultry are best when roasted
directly on the rack. We recommend
placing a shallow dish or pie plate below
the rack to catch any drippings for gravy
and to reduce/minimize splatter.
3.Press the Convection button to confirm
the temperature
• Less tender cuts can be roasted and
tenderized using oven cooking bags.
4.Press the number keys to set cooking

baking success.
5.Press Start/+30SEC. to start cooking.
Cooking time will count down.
GRILLING
You can program up to 3 automatic
cooking options. G-1 is 100% grilling
and G-2 and G-3 are a combination of

The Convection Roast uses both the even
heating of convection cooking and the
fast cooking of the microwave to produce
roasted meats and poultry that are evenly
browned and juicy on the inside.
The Convection Fast Bake function

Care and cleaning
The premium stainless steel used in your
oven’s interior is exceptionally easy to
clean. This nonporous, sanitary surface will
not absorb odors and repels food particles.
All other parts of the oven, both inside and
out, can be quickly cleaned, following the
simple directions below.
Helpful Hints
An occasional thorough wiping with a
solution of baking soda and water keeps
the inside fresh.
Unplug the cord before cleaning any part
of this oven.
How to clean the inside walls, floor,
inside window, metal and plastic parts
on the door
Some spatters can be removed with a
paper towel and others may require a
damp cloth.
Remove greasy spatters with a sudsy cloth,
then rinse with a damp cloth. Do not use
abrasive cleaners or sharp utensils on oven
walls.
To clean the surface of the door and the
surface of the oven that come together
upon closing, use only mild, non-abrasive
soaps or detergents using a sponge or soft
cloth. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry.
Never use a commercial oven cleaner on
any part of your microwave.
Removable turntable and turntable shaft
and ring assembly
To prevent breakage, do not place the
turntable in water just after cooking. Let it

cool, then wash it carefully in warm, sudsy
water or in the dishwasher. The turntable
and shaft can be broken if dropped.
Remember, do not operate the oven
without the turntable, turntable shaft and
ring assembly in place.
Door Surface
It is important to keep the area clean where
the door seals against the microwave. Use
only mild, non-abrasive detergents applied
with a clean sponge or soft cloth. Rinse
well.
How to Clean the Outside
Do not use cleaners containing ammonia or
alcohol on the microwave oven. Ammonia
or alcohol can damage the appearance of
the microwave.
Power Cord
If the cord becomes soiled, unplug and
wash with a damp cloth. For stubborn
spots, sudsy water may be used, but be
certain to rinse with a damp cloth and dry
thoroughly before plugging cord into outlet.
Clean the outside of the microwave with a
sudsy cloth. Rinse with a damp cloth and
then dry. Wipe the window clean with a
damp cloth.
Control Panel and Door
Wipe with a damp cloth. Dry thoroughly.
Do not use cleaning sprays, large amounts
of soap and water, abrasives or sharp
objects on the panel—they can damage it.

normal home use for 3 years from the date of
original purchase.
We suggest you complete and return the
enclosed product registration card promptly
to facilitate verification of the date of original
purchase. However, return of the product
registration card does not eliminate the need
for the consumer to maintain the original proof
of purchase in order to obtain the warranty
benefits. In the event that you do not have
proof of purchase date, the purchase date for
purposes of this warrant will be the date of
manufacture.
If your Cuisinart® Convection Microwave Oven
with Grill should prove to be defective within
the warranty period, we will repair it, or if we
think necessary, replace it. To obtain warranty
service, simply call our toll-free number 1-800726-0190 for additional information from our

CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ONLY:
California law provides that for In-Warranty
Service, California residents have the option
of returning a nonconforming product (A)
to the store where it was purchased or (B)
to another retail store which sells Cuisinart
products of the same type. The retail store
shall then, at its discretion, either repair the
product, refer the consumer to an independent
repair facility, replace the product, or refund
the purchase price less the amount directly
attributable to the consumer’s prior usage of
the product. If the above two options do not
result in the appropriate relief to the consumer,
the consumer may then take the product to an
independent repair facility if service or repair
can be economically accomplished.
Cuisinart and not the consumer will be
responsible for the reasonable cost of such
service, repair, replacement, or refund for
nonconforming products under warranty.
California residents may also, according
to their preference, return nonconforming
products directly to Cuisinart for repair, or
if necessary, replacement, by calling our
