Summary: I purchased this microwave from Amazon in June By the later part of July it just stopped working. The warranty does not send out a replacement. They want me to drive over one hour one way to get service done on it and then drive back to pick it up after the repair is done! I thought Panasonic stood for quality I am sadly mistaken! NOT EVEN TWO MONTHS!

Summary: This microwave is so bad, so useless that I don't think I can write a review without sounding so critical that no one would believe my comments but here goes anyway. We bought this microwave two years ago. The first sign that we had made a mistake was when we used it the first time and the tone signaling the heating was over buzzed five times. My wife said that can't be and we tried to find a way to reset the tone to two beeps which is all you really need.
Summary: I read the reviews of everyone else saying they had issues with the door breaking and I ended up purchasing it anyway. Exactly when the warranty expired the door broke like everyone else. We've been dealing with it by hitting it and pounding on it for the last 4 months which starts it. My wife hurt her hand punching it though so it's got to go. If you don't like punching microwaves this isn't the model for you.
Summary: This model replaces my previous Panansonic that didn't last as long as would have liked, but ordered this one in March during the famous, "Polar Vortex" so living a week without a microwave was OK seeing it was delivered right to my door. But, the other day, (5 months to the day of purchase) I popped a bag of Jolly Time popcorn. I cooked it directly on the glass turntable, which I've done for years in modern microwave ovens.
