Summary: Went for this model as its more compact than other combination ovens. For 18 months it was great but one day it just died. Would have given it 4 stars but for the money would have expected better so only 2 stars. I see other comments below about this model suddenly dying.
Summary: The first two we bought did not work - the first stopped after a minute on any programme, the second after a few seconds, I see a few other reviewers had the same issue. As our last Panasonic lasted many years, we decided to keep trying and John Lewis did replace quickly without a query so we are now on the third which seems OK so far, nice large turntable despite compact size.
Summary: I bought this microwave to replace an identical one which broke down, just outside the guarantee period! It is the most used piece of equipment in my kitchen, apart from the kettle! I chose the same one because I had been very happy with this model. Everything seems exactly the same except the fan is a lot noisier! However the grill is a lot better and on the whole I am pleased with it.
Summary: This is the second of this combi oven I have bought. I had the first for 10 years until it had to be replaced. It is a good size - compact exterior but spacious enough inside. I don't have the space for a really big microwave oven so this is a perfect size.
Summary: We only use our microwave to heat or reheat food for maybe 2-3 mins a day at most and not every day. I used the grill function once and it was good. So, this was probably overkill for what we needed but we bought it because we only had space for a slimline at the time. After just under 2 years of use it sparked and stopped working.
