Cuisinart Microwave/Convection

On an earlier post I mentioned my unhappiness with the Sharp Microwave/Convection "upgrade" I'd ordered in my new trailer. Main complaint: complicated operation, hard to read, had to get on hands and knees to set, etc. SO, I saw a Sport with this combo and have now installed it in my trailer. The Cuisinart is available for less than $250 on Amazon, it does everything that the Sharp does, it's got a display that's high enough to see, and you can use the keypad without getting on your hands and knees. I also think the stainless looks a lot classier than the brown plastic. Oh, the stainless trim surround is available from A/S for $120. Whaddya think? (If you're at Alumapalooza, I'll be there with the "old" Sharp which will be priced VERY attractively!)

Wow! no pun intended, but it does look "sharp"! We're looking to redesign our area under the old 4-burner with the same capability and I think this may be the solution.

Just need to figure out the counter top and cabinets to redesign the old design with.

Looks Great!

Since you're down at Bragg, if you go this route just call Out-of-Doors Mart in Colfax. They ordered this for me....and they are an awesome place to do business with.

SilverLeaf,
I know ODM very well. Great bunch of guys. I've done a lot of upgrades with them over the last five years. When I winterize and store the Airstream, I make a list. It only gets bigger as I read the forums and winter sets in. They've done me very well.

Next year upgrades will be LED recessed lights and new duo-therm 15 BTU HP and fantastic vents so we can put in all the relays.

I've got to redo the counters, have priced out a real nice new table that has an embedded compass rose, so once I save a few more bucks, I'll do the stove, counter and microwave/conven oven upgrade.


Of course, I'm always tempted to buy a new one until I reflect to the 20 years of memories in ours and the great upgrades that we have done to make it very comfortable.

That coach of yours looks great! They last forever, that is for sure. Longer than the boats we have owned, ha-ha.

Those tires you have advertised should go quick, great price. I'm looking at the EB 16" rims and Michelin's for next years third trip across America. Did the change make a difference with the upgrade in height? I don't even know it is back there at times with the Duramax at times. We replaced the axles with new 3500# axles last year and what a difference in towing and height, so I think the bigger rim and tires will complete that portion of the 43 yo coach. Towing between Boone and the coast has been a very pleasant task.

See you down the road and be safe in your travels.

I would like that model number too, our Sharp is on the fritz and since its beyond the warranty period we will need a new one. That Cuisinart looks spiffy and what a bonus to not have get into prayer position to get it going.

BAB,

While reading the reviews on the micro/conv oven I noticed it calls for a 12" clearance on top. It looks like yours is below the cooktop like ours, do you see any problems with that?

Info On Microwave

Is the model you purchased?
Model #: CMW-200
Do you know the AS Part number for the grill you used.
I have a 94 model with a sharp convection / Micro. The start button works some of the time.
I would like to upgrade and your set up looks great.

The conversion looks good. But I do wish someone would explain to me why this unit is so much easier to use than the Sharp which is what I have. From the picture I can't see it - control buttons like virtually the same to me.

Question Trim ring dimension STK200 - Trim kit for CMW200 Cuisinart - Stainless Steel


I did some research on net and found the
Suggested trim kit for use with CMW200 Cuisinart is
Manufacturer: Franklin Chef
Manufacturer Part No: STK200
$99.

I also found Information on the Sharp R820BK looks good and has some added features like upper and lower grilling, The Sharp maintains the original AS look but cost more.

Has anyone made the upgrade to the 820?

Information from Sharp web site indicated that they no longer make a trim kit for mounting the R820.

Does anyone know if the old trim kit can be used to mount newer sharp model?

The Outside dimensions look very similar.
My old Model Sharp R-7A82-B 20 1/2 W x 12 3/8 H

Hi, folks. This is an old thread, but it comes up pretty highly in a google search for Cuisinart. We're working on the same upgrade to our '95 - it didn't have an oven, so for years we carried a toaster/convection oven with us that we'd dig out of the closet.

Recently we were able to buy a refurbished Cuisinart CMW-200 convection microwave. Airstream does still sell the trim kit, and I had to talk to them to get the part number: 690605-04, and I just ordered it through ODM RV. It'll take some engineering to mount it in the spot for the microwave, but I don't think the microwave we have is original, either.
