Place water in a 3-quart microwave safe casserole. Cut one lemon half in slices and add to water and juice another half right into the water. Trim the artichokes. Working with 1 artichoke at a time, pull off the tough outer leaves and trim the stem flush with the bottom. Cut off the top ⅓ of the artichoke and then trim any remaining sharp leave tips. Rub each trimmed artichoke with the remaining lemons and place in water with lemons. Add garlic, salt and pepper to water. Cover artichokes directly with wax paper and then place a lid on casserole. Place casserole in the Cuisinart® Convection Microwave Oven with Grill. Microwave on high (PL 10) for 25 minutes.
