Summary: Died after two years. First the latch mechanism failed ( a known flaw) then the TT started making grinding noises, then failed. Worked great when it did. Bought a smaller model and hoping for better luck as I like the inverter technology.
Summary: Ordered this microwave on Jan 25, 2013. Today ii is January 23, 2015. While the microwave worked, it was the best I have ever operated. However, it did not even last 3 years. For the price it should have lasted a lot longer.After it quit working, I looked over the reviews and found the door problem...
Summary: First of all, I love Panasonic products. This was to replace a 9 year old model that worked fine until I snapped the latch off with a bulky sweatshirt. There are two parts to this review. How it was shipped and the product itself. Purchased this from Amazon directly and with Prime shipping.
it seems to work pretty well. The sensor functions are hit or miss

Summary: The display is impossible to read from any angle other than directly on. Other than that, it seems to work pretty well. The sensor functions are hit or miss. The 1250W rating also seems a little high, but not too far and it could just be in my head. The size is nice, if you have the space for it.
Summary: Nice, seemingly well built Microwave oven. The Inverter technology allows good modulation of the power instead of just cycling full power on and off. Very roomy cavity with lots of headroom. Very attractive & easy to clean.
Summary: Great for the price, lost one star because I have to press the open button hard for the door to spring open. Maybe its just the one I bought, but if that didn't happen, it would be 4 stars, maybe even 5. Looks good
Summary: Very attractive with its large clean stainless steel look, and that's why I bought it during my kitchen remodel. However, it could be easier to use. The dial operation is tricky. When you're trying to set it at a particular time, you spin past the time you want in both directions until you finally...
Summary: Was OK for a while. Big enough to heat a large dish, did an admirable job. After 2 years, basic functioning was good. But, we started having problems with the door latch, having to slam harder and harder to close the door and be able to operate it. Now, it won't function at all.
