Summary: Purchased after reading WHICH magazine review. Very disappointed. Getting refund.We have had two problems with this micro after just 5 months purchasing from Amazon and are seeking a full refund!1.The power just suddenly cut out!
Summary: Good machine but it had a fault and then the problems started. I sent it back and had a refund, think carefully about buying an electrical appliance on line! The after care from Panasonic was not very good.
Slimline means it isn't a combination over, apparently, it is "slim" on everything including depth.

Summary: This relies upon a small quartz grill in the top of the oven and a small fan that in our case was as noisy as hell, we thought it must be us and gave the oven a second chance, and a third, and a fourth etc. etc. Well it wasn't us, we wondered what the death rattle was, could it be the turntable?
Summary: The convection oven uses the grill and just adds a fan, so too much heat is directed onto your food and hence it burns. The oven temperature is below one selected. I have owned previous Panasonic combinations and they had a separate convection function.
Summary: I was disappointed with the performance of the microwave,but this was due to thinking I was replaceing my old oven with a similar oven.With this oven you are required to weigh the items to obtain the correct cooking time.Also auto programmes are not as good as my last cooker
Summary: Looks stylish and is very easy to use. I chose this microwave as it had more height and I would be able to get a jug inside and be able to stir the contents. So many have such a small interior. Have only had the item for just over two weeks, but so far I am impressed.
Summary: This oven is much more useful than a microwave alone: it quickly makes wonderful baked potatoes with crispy skin and fluffy inside, and is great for reheating things that need to be browned and crisped.
