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 39 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 Worst Dial Knob The dial knob only seems to go up increments of 10 seconds (as far as I know) making it impossible to heat something up at any other time increment. It is too sensitive at times making it easy to overshoot. The keypad would have been much better. The rest of the function on the microwave are not clear either. Reading the instruction manual is A MUST!!!! November 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent Quality and performance. Detail on the front of the machine could have been darker or somehow more easy to read. " November 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sensor technology, I like simple. I did my homework and am very pleased with the product. I like tht I only have to push one button and it figures it out, just like my clothes washer and dryer. The simpler the better for me. As with any stainless steel product fingerprints are an issue but it does look good next to my stainless steel refrigerator. November 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 Perfect with one caveat I love this microwave--sleek look and great performance. Knob vs buttons is super quick and easy. If the folks at Panasonic are reading this, design could be improved if the push pad was the same texture as the knob--it would be aesthetically pleasing but most important would eliminate fingerprints that are so annoying with stainless. Overall, though, very happy with this purchase!! October 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 Good unit, great features Recently purchased this microwave. Still getting used to it, but it does have some great features, especially the rewarm feature. However, the writing detail on the front of the machine could have been darker or somehow more easy to read. October 17, 2015
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
