Summary: I have to admit that I was not in love with the idea of a Panasonic product, having had the misfortune to purchase a TV and DVD that both went belly up within a relatively short priod of time - just out of warranty. Anyway, I was replacing my Sharp Carousel Convection as the mica plate had blown twice and it was not economical to keep replacing it. So with much reluctance, I took a punt on the Panasonic. Frankly, it is fantastic.
Summary: This is a large, powerful convection microwave with lots of features. In general, it has worked well. However, when we got ours a wheel on the roller ring that goes under the turntable had been broken in shipment. My wife had to make several phone calls to Panasonic customer service to convince them to send us another one. It took nearly 2 weeks for them to get it to us. Meanwhile, I was able to glue the wheel back on the ring so we were able to use it.
Summary: I love this machine! So easy to use & looks FANTASTIC. Find I have to do a bit extra on the defrost tho, doesnt do it all the way thru on auto setting (which is - press auto def button, dial weight, Start), but almost. Doesnt cook the edges whilst defrosting which is very good. Baked a sponge cake at high altitude (7000feet) which can be very difficult & turned out great. Easy wipe facia, sturdy, well built. LOVE it!
Summary: We have been using this microwave for 5 months. It's a great product.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this without reservation to anyone looking for a highend microwave. This is also a convection which is handy.
Summary: This oven is very stylish in design, would fit into most any style kitchen. It microwaves wonderfully and we love the sensor heat feature. I would have preferred to have digital number input capabilities rather than a knob that you turn to input cooking times, etc. This oven is easy to clean and cooks nicely. Would recommend this oven.
