Summary: After the way Panasonic treated me, after I purchased a lemon, yes, not all their new products work, I wont buy a Panasonic item ever again. Panasonic does not understand customer service. They do not deserve to have customers.
Summary: Like the looks of it, it's more low-profile than the taller microwave we had, but is extremely spacious inside. Does a great job of heating from the inside-out. All in all, a great bargain and a great product. Also, fairly easy to learn to operate. Couldn't have asked for more.
Summary: I liked this microwave at first, until it suddenly died on me after 5 months. I had to buy a used microwave in order to get by while waiting for warranty repair. I had very similar experience with my previous Panasonic microwave, except it died after about 2 yrs of use. The symptoms were identical in both cases: the fuse blew right after turning the heat on, and replacing the fuse did not help - kept blowing on turning heat power on, so it looked like a short circuit in...
Summary: This is my 4th panasonic microwave in the past 30 years and I have to say this one is the cadillac of all microwaves. I'm so impressed with it - appearance, ease of use, perfect cooking every time, etc. I researched the prices of this item all over the internet and Amazon had the best price by far! Thanks Amazon!
Summary: Quite satisfied. The selling point was the linear heat control, useful when heating very small amounts. The automatic settings work well for a single person such as I. Lack of a numerical key entry is no problem after a little practise.
Summary: This is an excellent microwave. Like the other reviewers said, it even defrosts well. As for the green color, it's just the protective "skin" put on to keep the stainless steel clean. You can pull it off with no problem.
Summary: Just got one of these and it is wonderful. Easy to use, powerful and looks great. As to the reviewer saying that it is green, well it isnt. That person is obviously oblivious to the fact that all better stainless appliances are packaged with a greenish-blue plastic film protecting it, which you take off once you take it out of the box.
Summary: After a lightning strike took out our last microwave, we went with this model. Didn't want full size (although it is still 1.6 cu.ft) and the power is high (1250 watts). It is very attractive and quite simple to use. Does a great job on sensor cooking, popcorn (even adjusts to the size bag used) and other uses we have put it through. We are exceptionally pleased with the quality and the price, especially with the $25 off special that was available when purchased.
