Summary: I love this Microwave! My kitchen has all stainless large & small appliances and this model fits right in. I have no issue with the brightness of the display panel as some of the other reviews state. The features are great and work exactly as expected. I have owned Panasonic Microwaves for 25+ years and have never been disappointed.
Summary: I've had a very similar one with sane features (NN SD698) for 3 or 4 years. I love the power and features and look. It's a great microwave but, last many other people, I've had a problem with the door latch. It's broken, I can't open it and I have a cup of coffee inside. Repairs are time consuming and costly. Yet, I'm prepared to buy a similar one again today, in the hope that Panasonic has improved it's door latch design and construction.
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: I have had this microwave for about a year now. It's the quickest and most evenly cooking unit I've ever used. Never had a problem with it. Bought mine at Meijer of all places. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
Summary: This is the perfect microwave. It's just the right size to accommodate anything we use it for, without claiming too much counter top real-estate. It's powerful, which means it's fast, but the even heating is what makes it superior to any other microwave I've owned. I highly recommend it!
Summary: Why does Panasonic insist on having this large dial knob as and interface? NObody wants that. People come to my house and stand in front of the microwave trying to figure out how to use. Should be intuitively obvious. Just a bad idea.
