Usable capacity

Measured capacity is the usable space based on our measurements, and excludes the corner spaces for models with rotating turntables. Note that most Over-The-Range models allow you to turn the rotation off to fit large dishes (a few countertop models offer this feature, as well.) With the rotation off, measured capacity approximates claimed. However, food may require extra tending and stirring.
