Inverter Technology

Panasonic Inverter Technology perfects the art of cooking with microwave ovens, delivering delicious flavor, excellent color, and superb shape and texture in the foods you cook. The consistent delivery of microwave energy means delicate foods can simmer without the edges and surfaces overcooking. Foods have the look and taste of conventional-oven cooking without the wait!

Inverter Turbo Defrost™

Panasonic has succeeded in evolving the Turbo Defrost™, which allows you to defrost foods even faster than previous Panasonic Auto Defrost. Panasonic inverter Turbo Defrost technology is ad advanced microwave sequencing system using the inverter continuous-power delivery feature.

One-Touch Sensor Cook and Reheat

The Sensor adjusts power levels and calculates cooking and reheating times automatically for various food types.

Blue LED Display

4-digit neon blue LED display provides a high-end look that complements any kitchen décor.

Pop-Out Dial

With a spin of the dial, the easy-to-use pop-out dial is a departure from the standard keypad found on most microwave ovens.

Keep Warm Feature

A pulsing delivery of very low microwave power keeps food temperatures at a constant level without overcooking. So, foods like stew, gravy and desserts remain warm in the oven until ready to serve.

Elegant Design with Push-Button Door Release and Stainless Steel Front

Elegant, attractive and easy-to-open, the microwave will look its best even when preparing some of the messiest recipes.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Microwave NN-SD681S Excellent in every way. Easy to use and precise cooking experience. September 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly Recommended I bought this Panasonic microwave with hopes that it won't disappoint me and so far, it has exceeded my expectations. I've had it for less than a month though and it may be too soon to make a conclusion about its performance but so far, I'm satisfied with my purchase. The microwave heats up really fast to my surprise. I'll say, it's a combination of fancy and class for that price. I'm glad I made this purchase. September 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by workhorse He's cute, fits in my space. Hard to find a little one with plenty of power. My last Panasonic lasted 10 years. It still runs, but it rusted because we are at the beach. September 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by great microwave Old microwave died. We don't know how we lived before microwave ovens. I like a really powerful microwave and these Panasonics fit the bill. It has many programs including several defrost options. Great for reheating anything, steaming vegetables, popcorn. We use this many times per day from heating frozen burritos to parboiling vegetables, etc. Only complaint is no light when you open door. September 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Higher end consumer microwave The genius prestige line of Panasonic microwaves is the higher end of the Pansonic Inverter home line. The technology seems little changed since I bought my previous Panasonic five years ago (the power unit burned out), but this model improves the ease of use and the look of the front panel. I use the multicook feature to cook at different power settings for different lengths of time in one setting, and now you can actually tell which power setting is in operation at each stage. (Turns out I was using it completely backwards for five years). The all-stainless front is way more attractive. Mostly, I love the dial, which is smaller and feels a little flimsier than my older model, but so long as it holds up the small changes are all pluses. September 10, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does not work consistantly This microwave is way to complicated and does not always work! The clock turns off, the power goes off partway through the cooking cycle, the food is still cold and sometimes needs to be reheated 2 to 3 more times. I would like to send it back!! September 5, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by engineering/features Stainless shows ALL fingerprints, no light when door is opened. Only when running. September 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love inverters in any equipment very happy with unit ,really cool looking blue display ,just hope it does not fail, I read some reports on failures plus my niece had her's fixed ,then it failed again ,she then threw it out . I hope the issues were taken care of ,because I really love this unit. The price was too high ,but I really wanted it...You know how that goes,just take out the plastic,and pay the bill later.
