Of course the Panasonic reviews were grousing about not being able to read the clock except head-on. I decided I'd rather go for a hard-to-read clock/display window than a potentially faulty LCD panel, so I opted for this one and I'm glad I did. I have tried on numerous occasions in the two weeks I've owned this microwave to find an angle from which I could NOT read the clock and, try as I might, I can't find one. So I'm guessing that somewhere between all the complaints in these reviews and my buying my new microwave in June 2010, Panasonic must have fixed that problem.
My uses for a microwave are pretty basic: I reheat, melt, thaw, pop, Stoufferize and steam frozen veggie melanges, and for those purposes this works beautifully, looks good, and fits the designated space I have for it. I'm very happy with this product and will revisit this review if any of that changes.
Update 10/12/11: Still very happy with this product. Still plan to let you know here if ever that changes.
Update 12/27/12: Ditto to the above.
Update 7/25/14: Ditto. Still no problems; working great.
Which brings me to my delight with the dial. Dial up the time, press start and it cooks in its monotonous, microwavy way.
Better yet, the dial on this machine feels like the volume control on a fine stereo system. It's heavy and smooth, with satisfying, almost subliminal haptic ticks. No cheap plastic egg-timer hand feel (as with its sister appliance, the toaster oven.)
Beyond the dial, it cooks like a microwave; looks really, really good looking; and is easy to clean.
The unit we received from Amazon had another flaw. The four feet wouldn't rest flat on the counter. I solved this by sticking a 1/8" thick rubber "furniture protector" thingy under one of the feet. I don't think our granite counter top is that far out of whack, so I'm blaming the microwave.
Even with the flaws taken into consideration, I still think this is the best microwave in this size. It has a nice solid feel, good buttons, intuitive controls, and it looks fantastic in our stainless kitchen. It's just the right size for our needs. We don't do any serious cooking in it - just reheating and defrosting and such - and for that, it's perfect. Some small microwaves don't have a rotating turntable. This one does, and a dinner plate fits on it with room to spare. We aren't popcorn eaters so I can't comment on how well it pops. Neither can I comment on its reliability, since we've only had it a month. If you research the matter, I think you'll find all brands have their detractors these days, and there's no obvious winner on internal quality. I did verify there was a Panasonic service center in my home town before buying.
However, one flaw impossible to overlook is the IMPOSSIBLE-to-read display. Possibly the worst design ever; it's green, and can only be seen direct on (as it illumanted the 2nd reflective layer). Go 10 degrees either side, you might as well look at a green blob (or, if you move further, nothing). I assume Panasonic will fix this is later revisions, but this is unexcusable for something this standard. Mind you, head on (and I mean, HEAD on) it's fine.....
If you don't care what the display shows, a great unit. If you are buyign this for someone with less than 39/39 eyesight............
