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 4.6 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sensor reheat The sensor reheat on this particular model gets the food extremely hot, almost too hot at times. August 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by If you can love a microwave... Still trying to figure out all the features but I will say that I've never had a microwave that worked so well to heat leftovers and melt butter. Everything evenly cooked, no stirring needed and not a whole lot of thought to get that far. July 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent microwave I love the inverter feature. It's so nice to have items cook evenly instead of on and off. We've had it a few weeks and are very happy with its performance. I haven't needed to call customer service at all for support. July 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by no light after opening door I knew it had no light when the door opened based on some other reviews, but thought it would be no problem. It is. You can not see the hot container to grab it well. You can not look at the cooked food to see it before taking it out. The light is too poor to see the food during cooking. And it makes cleaning the inside hard because you can not see the inside. Have to use a flash light to clean inside. Anyone that says it will save electricity, I would pay the dollar or two it would save over a year. Other than this problem it seems to a good product. Well have to see how long it last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NN-SD681S This is a very nice looking appliance. The sensor cooking is great. The new control knob works better than numbers once you get used to it. Overall a great product. July 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Microwave We purchased this microwave in April when our quit working. I love the features, especially the melt chocolate and soften butter one! Money well spent. June 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 Hurray for Inverter Technology like the continuous, proportional power capability of the inverter technology employed in this design. really makes melting butter and chocolate a lot less "dramatic" than in duty-cycle controlled power systems. I think the user controls could be easier to use. I'll soon get use to them, but at the moment I'm missing some of the one-touch functions of my old microwave oven. May 22, 2015
