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!

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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Microwave for it's size First , I have a light inside my microwave. Don't know why others don't? Too bad you can't get a bigger microwave with all the bells and whistles. Small kitchen perhaps? I have a small house with a small kitchen. So, I am not able to get a large/normal size microwave. This is by far the best microwave around for its size. I had a Panasonic microwave prior to this one that lasted 10 yrs. My husband broke it or it would still be working I am sure. Very glad to see Panasonic is still such a great company. My favorite for a lot of things. I always check to see if I can get what I want in the panasonic brand before any others. I have had this microwave for a couple of years and still looks and works like new. And it is used a few times a day. Thank You! Panasonic. August 3, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst Purchase Ever This microwave stopped working after 15 mos. The warranty is only 1 year. The closest service center is 60 miles away and there is no option to mail the microwave back to Panasonic for repair. So at this point, my only option is to buy a new microwave. I will definitely not purchase another Panasonic microwave or any other Panasonic product. June 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Great Product This Is The Best Micro Wave Product We Have Purchased In a Long Time. We Are Very Please . May 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Microwave Panasonic microwave has been very good and has not disappointed in the short time we have had it. Still getting used to all the features but overall it was a great buy. May 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Purchase I've had this Microwave for about 2 years now & couldn't be happier. Does everything I need it to do plus more. Only drawback is the lack of lighting when you open the door. Also, as everyone else has mentioned....fingerprints galore. Would prefer a white or black Panasonic. My last oven lasted a little over 10 years, so it will be a while before I will need a new one. Guess I will be wiping fingerprints for a while my friends. March 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happily Satisfied Granted its been a decade since I've had to purchase a microwave, but this unit has exceeded my expectations. The proof is in the fact that neither the wife nor I have had to read the instruction manual in order to be able to defrost, reheat, cook popcorn, etc. One small knock is that its a magnet for fingerprints, but hey, with stainless steel, thats par for the course. March 4, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Finger print magnet One of the reasons I bought this microwave is because it is stainless steel front but turned out that it's a finger print magnet and not easy to wipe clean the prints. Now everywhere we touched has ugly looking spots. Another thing I don't like about this microwave is no light when you open the door. Only when it's cooking the light comes on inside. Inverter cooking is great it heats food evenly. We only uses it for heating food and drinks not for cooking. January 30, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great but could be better The microwave is well constructed and works well, but as others have mentioned the lack of an oven light when opening the door is a bit perplexing. Unless the kitchen is well lit, reaching into the dark cavity to take something out that's hot is a bit risky. January 20, 2016
