Microwaving Has Evolved
A Steady Stream of Cooking Power for Even Results
Panasonic Patented Inverter Technology
Unlike traditional microwaves that rely on pulse-on, pulse-off cooking at lower temperatures, patented Inverter Technology generates a steady stream of power at all temperature settings. The result? Consistent, evenly prepared food — edges to center — across a wide range of cooking techniques.
Poach, Braise and Steam to Perfection
Inverter Technology delivers microwave energy in a way that allows delicate foods to simmer without overcooking. In addition, foods retain more color, texture and nutrients for fast, easy and delicious results.

Maximum Interior, Minimum Footprint
The smart, compact design of the Inverter power unit devotes less space to electronics and provides far more interior capacity. These smaller, more efficient energy and control units are also up to eight pounds lighter than conventional microwave components. All of which adds up to more interior space, while taking up less space on a counter.
A sleek, touch-button control panel and four-digit display provide a high-end look, with one-touch sensor cook and reheat.
Utilizes a microwave sequencing system based on Inverter's continuous-power delivery method to thaw foods more evenly and quickly.
Keep Warm Feature
Keeps foods like vegetables, soups, hors d'oeuvres, gravies, sauces and desserts warm and delicious in the oven until they're ready to serve.
More advantages include quick-minute timer that lets you set cooking and reheating times in single-minute intervals, delay start feature and child safety lock.
Upgrade Your Kitchen
If you prefer your microwave built in to a new or existing wall or cabinet, Panasonic offers optional stainless-steel trim kits. Precision manufactured to enhance the look and fit of your microwave, and the décor of your kitchen, this stylish trim kit will keep its quality and beauty for years to come.
This microwave is compatible with trim kits for 30 inch and 27 inch cabinet openings.

With the touch of our Sensor Cooking button, this microwave takes 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.

What I can say is that this microwave is big and powerful. I remember pulling the turntable glass out of the box during unpacking and saying "holy cow, I could nuke a whole cow" on this. At just over 16" in diameter, what you can cook is 2-3 bowls of frozen vegetables at the same time. While the unit is certainly one of the larger non-commercial microwaves I've seen, the large cooking area appears to come more from efficiencies in Panasonic's design. In other words, more cooking area out of the same footprint of a microwave of this size from a few years ago.
When I was first evaluating this purchase I wasn't sure if the "Microwave Inverter" technology, now unique to Panasonic due to licensing/patents, was gimmick or not. But now I don't believe it is (despite at least one non-Amazon/independent buying guide that tried to claim otherwise). This unit doesn't "pulse" on and off during the cooking cycle like other microwaves I've used. It's more like the described "steady stream of power" which definitely reduces cooking time and makes trips to the kitchen faster. However, you do have to be aware that similar to switching from a standard toaster oven to a convection toaster oven, cooking times need to be reduced or your food will truly be "nuclear" (ok, overheated). The inverter technology also appears to improve defrost mode in my experience. If you flip the food as instructed, it generally avoids partially cooking the edges of food like other non-inverter units I've used over the years.
The only thing (or two) I personally didn't love about this unit was the power function on the controls. I'm used to hitting "power" and then a number. This unit starts at power 10 and you have to hit the power button 1-9 times to reduce it to the level you want. Admittedly, part of my aggravation is having had "power #" a habit long ago formed. But I actually find it less efficient this way.
Also, I feel I should comment that the "cheat sheet" for the smart cooking modes is on the inside of the door on the bottom, conveniently printed for those of us that like to keep a magnifying glass velcro'd to the side of our kitchen appliances. I don't know why manufacturers think this is a good placement or print size but this issue is not unique to Panasonic. I guess my disappointment is that after buying a microwave several years newer than my previous, the leap in generation fails to provide any leap in improvement in the capability of the timer/display and keypad controls. Simply allowing you to scroll through the cooking options to appear on the display by hitting each number. (i.e. hitting "Sensor Cook" and then 1 would display "Frozen dinner", then 2 would display "Popcorn", etc.) would be a welcome improvement on the printed microscopic label approach.
However, I can't honest say these cons outweigh the pros and I feel this is a very good unit overall. I'm not sure how often the models change over time, so this review may not be relevant for very long. But in general, I wouldn't hesitate to consider the Panasonic brand and their unique "Microwave Inverter" technology again if I had to. (Hopefully at least 9-15 years from now. ;-) ) Happy nuking!
it microwaves food as expected
it causes all wifi to stop working when running. I tested throughout the house with multiple devices including laptops, iPhone, and android phones.. Wifi on all these devices stops working while the microwave is running.
In a big box store, you can compare the various makes and models. I did. Although earlier or perhaps lesser models do appear to have less robust door latches, models nn965 and nn966 both have very different latches, even different from each other. This model has a more refined and very sturdy door latch, and that gives me hope that the widely reported problem has been resolved. This unit (I purchased) latches firmly, and sounds exactly like another unit we have had for several years. By all measures, this latch appears to conform to industry standards.
The differences do not stop there. model nn966 also has slightly raised buttons, where the nn965 and other models have perfectly featureless and flat touch screens. These are small pressure sensitive push pads that depress when you poke them. The great advantage is that blind and visually impaired users can feel the buttons. Feeling the slightly raised button also helps any user know exactly where to press; a feature some touch screen users will well appreciate. The surface of the control panel remains seamless, so cleaning is still easy.
I went with the 2.2 cu. ft. version. It is cavernous inside, but its not consuming any more counter space than our 2.0 unit. The 16-inch glass turntable is shaped like any other but rides well above the bottom of the cooking box, so removing it for cleaning is simple. This may also improve the evenness of heating. It runs at the same loudness of any large unit, and it beeps just like you expect; no surprises.
A close look at an assortment of microwaves shows that they all rest on tiny metal feet about the diameter of a nickle or penny. Although these feet sadly never appear to be adjustable, they are always placed a few inches back from the front edge of the unit and frequently far back from the inner edge of the door. Placing nickles or pennies under these feet still appears to be the universal trick for leveling a microwave. Given the substantial weight of the unit, tipping appears to be no problem and neither does it appear to be that leaving the unit to overhang a deep cupboard shelf is any problem at all. My plans call for the unit to rest on a custom built shelf above a kitchen counter, because I have no desire to sacrifice over 30-inches of counter top work space.
This may well be one of the largest and most powerful microwaves intended for residential use. It can accept any stupidly tall coffee mug, a number of moderately sized serving dishes, or even a 16-inch pizza. Once you learn how to adjust it properly, you can even keep that pizza nicely warmed through an entire football game. Just be sure to remove it from the box. And, yes. This unit will incinerate popcorn in well under 2 minutes, so adjust your programmed settings accordingly. When you get it programmed, everyone can make it perfect every time ... until you change your brand of popcorn.
Other than the latch problem ( which happened to my old Panasonic as well , but after 11 years) I like the micro wave...but latch problem will make it unusable if problem is not recified
