So far so good So far the product is warking fine. I replaced my old oven about a week ago. The old one, also Panasonic, was still operating. The reason for repalcement - extra noise as it gets older (more than 10 years of use). The replacement is alomst the same. I did the power test - heated cup of water for 3 minutes on #1 power=10, #2 power=5, #3 power=1 Water temperature after test (in Celsius degree) #1 temp=100 (boiling) #2 temp=68 #3 temp=30(close to room temp). So the power control is working fine. December 14, 2014
It heats The power control is not viewable nor is it adjustable while oven is in operation. This is not a problem since the power does not really adjust. It took 2 minutes 40 seconds to boil a cup water on power setting of "1" and the same length of time to boil a cup of water at power setting of "10". I used different identical bowls to boil the water and tested low power first. I will be returning this unit and another Panasonic microwave oven will not be a consideration. August 30, 2014
fatally flawed Found no way to display power level setting, once you start the MW. My 15yr Pana that died recently, as well as nearly every MW I've ever used, allows you to press the power button *while* the MW is running/heating to see what power level setting you are using. Not being able to do this is a fatal flaw & I"m returning the unit to CostCo. The unit is not level on all four points of contact so it 'rocks' when you try to use it. I was not going to even buy this model 3mo ago, when ever store I viewed it at, same flaw of the open button being so stiff, along with the lack mech being also too stiff, meant you could not open the door without pushing(it's not very heavy compared to some) right off the counter! When a new shippment came to CostCo & door/latch worked flawlessly, thought I'd take a gamble even though many reviews complained about the sticky/poor closing latch...mistake. & like other reviews, the digital display cannot be read at all (u see only 8888 from an angle) unless you are nearly dead center facing the display...and absurdly narrow viewing angle & the display is still not easy to read as it's too dim. No provision to turn off the alarm sound...not loud, but at night it's a problem. Fan sound is not 'loud', but very noticeable...Steve Jobs would not buy this :-) April 18, 2014
Product didn't last 6 months. I have had several brands that lasted for years and were still working when given away. I would not own another Panasonic product. February 9, 2014
