It's 850 Watts, 0.9 cu ft.

That's enough for popcorn, but a magnetron does lose power once it starts to age.

The figure I've heard is an average life expectancy of 2000 hours for a magnetron.

Two "Band-Aid" suggestions for better exposure and more even heating:

1. Place the popcorn bag on top of an upside-down paper plate.

2. Place the bag off-center instead of dead center. Placing food in the center of the turntable is not as efficient as placing it off-center.

Shut's off after cooking popcorn, only popcorn, won't restart for 15 too30min.


Sounds like the magnetron is over heating. Try putting a 4 0z cup of water in the oven along side the popcorn bag. See if this helps. Usually, the oven only runs 2 to 2.5 minutes for a bag of popcorn. You may have to experiment with the slightly different cooking time...

What should my powerlevel be on on my microwave because it keeps burning my popcorn


Your power level should be on high, but you shouldn't rely on the oven to time the cooking. I have yet to find an oven that won't burn popcorn if it has a preset POPCORN button. Press it and walk away and next thing you know, you've got charcoal. You should always stick around while making popcorn. Stop the oven and take the bag out when the time between pops drops to 1 or 2 seconds. The corn will continue to pop on its own for a bit because of stored heat, but you won't burn it. You'll never get 100% of the corn to pop, so don't worry about unpopped kernels.

What is the best way to cook popcorn in this oven?


It's best to put the popcorn bag on an upside-down paper plate, and be sure it's off-center, not in the center of the turntable.

Raising the plate and keeping it slightly off center allows more even heating and also protects the glass tray from overheating repeatedly in the center, which can eventually lead to its cracking.

If it still won't cook properly, the magnetron, cooling air flow or power line voltage may be less than it should be.

Bad to cook popcorn in the microwave?


I have run a lot of popcorn thru the microwave with no effect on the oven.

I've never seen any cautions to not do that or to even be careful doing it.

A lot of microwaveable popcorn is sold, so that's a good indication.

Turn table shattered while making pop corn. Cuisinart ModelCmw100


You can order a replacement dish here. The dish shattered because the heat from the bag of popcorn was too much for it. If you look at the owner's manual for almost every microwave, they tell you not to put popcorn directly on the glass dish, but to put it on another plate.

The oven should be safe to use. Just look for any burned spots on the paint in the bottom of the cooking cavity.

Need manual


The part numbers were MW-9999-04 OR IB-MR95TW but they are shown to be no longer available.

However, one dealer lists it as being available here.

Good luck.
