This is a smaller, though not tiny, microwave. At 1000 watts it has plenty of power for the average household. There is not an over abundance of buttons or cooking options which is a relief from many on the market. For reheating coffee there is a 30 second button which does a fine job for that task. Performance Plenty of power at 1000 watts. I haven't had any problems what so ever heating or cooking with this microwave. Settings/Features There are plenty of settings yet not overwhelmingly so. I'm Very happy to not have to get frustrated and lost at how to operate this machine. Ease of Cleaning As easy as it gets. Remove the tray and clean away. There are no obstacles that get in your way. Of course the more often you clean the inside the easier it will be. Ease of Use One button operation for 80% of what I use it for. Easy to understand buttons on the front of the case. No scratching your head with this unit. Durability Seems plenty solid. Door shuts solidly and the outside is stainless steel. Very durable. Design Cuisinart stainless steel handsome.
