Attractively housed in stainless steel, this 1250-watt microwave oven by Panasonic makes a stylish and convenient addition to any contemporary kitchen. The 2.2-cubic-foot unit with its 16-1/2-inch turntable perfectly cooks and evenly heats anything from breakfast foods and after-school snacks to dinnertime meals and appetizers when entertaining.

Inverter Technology

Moving Beyond Just "Heating Things Up"

Many people just use their microwaves for making popcorn or warming up soup because most microwaves just have one temperature setting--high. Conventional microwave ovens might have a low-power setting, but this is achieved by "pulsing" the high-power setting on and off rather than by emitting a steady stream of low-powered energy.

Panasonic's trailblazing Inverter technology delivers true, variable microwave power, which means even temperatures and consistent textures throughout the food being cooked. The consistent delivery of microwave energy allows delicate foods to simmer without the edges and surfaces overcooking, so foods have the look and taste you expect--without the wait.

The Inverter microwave oven perfects the art of cooking, taking microwave cooking to a whole new level. You'll experience delicious food that better retains its color, nutrients, and flavor and that's easier and faster to prepare. Oh, and you can still make great popcorn.

Single, Compact Power Supply

Furthermore, the Inverter power unit is smaller and lighter than conventional microwave circuitry (aka the heavy, enclosed side of the microwave), which allows for more interior space to fit that favorite casserole dish, without increasing the oven's overall exterior dimensions. Weighing just 36.8 pounds, the oven's roomy interior measures 18-1/2 inches long by 18-7/16 inches wide by 10-15/16 inches high, while its compact exterior measures 19-7/16 inches long by 23-7/8 inches wide by 14 inches high.

Highlights

One-Touch Genius Sensor Cook

With the touch of Panasonic's Sensor Cooking button, the microwave takes the guesswork out of creating a great meal, by automatically setting power levels and adjusting cooking or defrosting time. The sensor measures the amount of steam produced during cooking, and signals the microprocessor to calculate the remaining cooking time at the appropriate power level automatically.

Inverter Turbo Defrost

Panasonic evolved the Turbo Defrost feature, which allows you to defrost foods even faster than previous Panasonic Auto Defrost. Panasonic Inverter Turbo Defrost technology is an advanced microwave sequencing system using the inverter continuous-power delivery method.

Electrostatic Touch Dial with Push-Button Panel

Sleek and elegant control panel features an electrostatic touch dial, expanded six-digit display, and cool blue LED lighting.

Menu Action Screen (multi-lingual)

The Menu Action Screen is like having a chef to assist you in the kitchen. It scrolls step-by-step cooking instructions across the display, in a choice of English, Spanish, or French.

Keep Warm Feature

A pulsing delivery of very low microwave power keeps food temperatures at a constant level--without overcooking. So, foods like stew, gravy, and desserts remain warm in the oven until they're ready to be served.

Clock/Timer

Time-of-day clock and versatile timer provide exceptional convenience.

Quick Minute

The one-touch button allows you to set or add cooking time in 1-minute increments up to 10 minutes.

Child-Safety Lock

For safety, the oven's child safety lock prevents electronic operation (door still opens). Press Start three times to lock ("Lock" will display); press Stop/Reset three times to cancel.

Spin Dial

Size Name: 1.6 cu.ft Verified Purchase
Prior to buying this model I read most of the reviews here for both Panasonic and Sharp in the 1.6 & 2.2 cu ft sizes. I imagine you're doing the same routine. By now you're skeptical about the Panasonic because of the door design and failures reported after limited use. Don't be. Every product made has some percentage of failed items. It looks like if the Panasonic makes it past a couple of years, you're good for a solid 10 - 15 years of trouble free service. Just get the Square Trade warranty and treat the door and latch with a little respect. Simple. So, a couple of things: this model replaced a Panasonic that we had for over 12 years. It finally died. The control panel on that one was laid out just the same as the new one. The thing is laid out logically and is intuitive. Whether one thinks this or that button, or sequence of how to program something is 'good' depends on what they're used to...so you can ignore other folks comments about that. You get used to what you have to work with...it's called adapting. And while I'm at it, the electrostatic dial is very effective and super easy to use. The lady that complained about it must be 'challenged' in the extreme. Aside from that, the inverter technology IS genius. It makes a major difference in thawing evenly, which the old one did well and the new one does even better. One story: I made a big one-person Marie Callender pot pie the other day...10 minutes on high and sit for 5. The old oven struggled with these things, burning the bottom of the crust slightly about half the time. The new oven turned out a piece that could well be the poster child for microwave oven technology. It went in frozen solid and came out bubbly hot on the inside, meat and veggies both perfect and the crust, both top and bottom were amazing.Read more ›

I feel like a Microwave connoisseur, I have been through so many. Single guy here, I have a back up microwave for when one goes out if that tells you anything. I use a microwave 99% of the time so I feel qualified to judge a microwave. :") This one is the top of the Microwave chain, it can take a lot of use, it's EASY to use, responsive and is attractive in the kitchen. It's HUGE and will hold anything, so make sure you want a very large Microwave before purchasing. I wouldn't change a thing on this microwave! Thanks for perfecting the microwave Panasonic!

I'm really impressed with the sensor cooking settings of this microwave. After just four days of use, I've tried five of the sensor settings (oatmeal, omelet, fresh vegetables, frozen vegetables, and stew). I can say I've probably had the most consistent (very good) results of any microwave I've ever owned (this is my third). I've found using the "Less" setting (which amounts to about 10% less time) when using the sensor cook gives me perfectly cooked vegetables. While I can't say this microwave is "quiet", it doesn't go from very loud to loud back to very loud like most microwaves that cycle the magnetron on/off. This microwave's magnetron is always "on": I think I find it somewhat less intrusive on conversations, watching TV, or listening to the radio. Without a doubt, I would purchase this microwave again after just four days of use. I'll update my review after a few months.

Size Name: 1.6 cu.ft
It's a great microwave, other than the door latch, which fails to register as closed after about a year or two of use. You have to slam it harder and harder to get it to register as closed, and eventually, it will never register and you're stuck with a hunk of junk. Panasonic refuses to acknowledge the defect and will not support you after the short term warranty timeframe.

I took mine apart, and the cause is a thin strip of metal that anchors the door latch/sensor mechanism. The mechanism itself is fine, but the strip of metal bends over time every time the door closes. Eventually it's bent far enough that the sensor/latch anchored to it is out of place and will not complete the "door closed" circuit. I was able to bend the metal back in place with two pairs of pliers, and upon reassembly the latch sensor now works again. I glued two dowels in place to hopefully reduce the bending of the metal strip in the future. I'll post again in a few months about the long term success of the repair.

You shouldn't have to use pliers, glue and dowels on your microwave. Do not buy--give Panasonic the finger for this manufacturing defect.

I just received the oven today. It replaces a Kenmore that was approximately 21 years old. The cavity was small and had no turntable; cooking times were always longer than recommended for any given food. But it was very reliable. It was starting to creak and grown, and lacked features--also it was fairly ugly.

The Panasonic microwave oven is new and attractive; it is not much bigger than the Kenmore it replaces. Looks like it has an interior hatch for the light bulb. The interior lining appears sturdy and shows no cracks. The glass turntable was properly packaged and undamaged. The door mechanism is smooth, but I'll have to wait and see if the dreaded latch issues surface. These comments relate to complaints from earlier posters.

The oven arrived as promised (next day air added $15.95 to Prime); it was shipped in the original packing carton, and that had a gouge in it. The gouge penetrated the outer cardboard but did not reach any part of the product (the turntable was beneath the gouge, and the glass and inner packaging was unaffected).

Setup consisted of plugging the oven in and setting the clock. The complained-of electrostatic setting wheel is easy to figure out and easy to use. It looks nice and is functional. I paid close attention to all the complaints about the wheel before buying. Panasonic makes similar products at similar prices with mechanical knobs and with numeric touchpads. I decided to take a chance on the wheel, and played with it when the oven arrived. It's easier to clean than a mechanical knob, and is familiar to anyone who uses a tablet ore music player with a touch screen (e.g., iPad Touch).

The oven is not particularly noisy, the control panel is logical, uncluttered and straightforward.
