Inverter Technology

Panasonic Inverter Technology perfects the art of cooking with microwave ovens, delivering delicious flavor, excellent color, 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 you expect – without the wait!

Genius Prestige Microwave

With the touch of our Sensor Cooking button, this microwave takes guesswork out of creating a great meal, by automatically setting power levels and adjusting cooking or defrosting time. The sensor measures the amount of steam produced during cooking and signals the microprocessor to calculate the remaining cooking time at the appropriate power level automatically.

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 Defrost technology is an advanced microwave sequencing system using the inverter continuous-power delivery feature.

Electrostatic Touch Dial with Push Button Panel

Sleek and elegant control panel features an electrostatic touch dial, expanded 6-digit display and cool blue LED lighting

One-Touch Genius Sensor Cook and Reheat

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

Menu Action Screen (multi-lingual)

The Menu Action Screen is like having a chef to assist you in the kitchen. It scrolls step-by-step cooking instructions across the display, in a choice of English, Spanish, or French.

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.

Quick Minute Feature

The one-touch button allows you to automatically set the time in increments of 1 minute.

Built-In Installation*

This Prestige Countertop Microwave Oven can be installed in the wall using an optional matching trim kit accessory.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great gift This was a gift from my sister when she found out out old microwave oven had given out. The unit is smaller than our old one but the interior capacity is greater. We like the look of the exterior. We are still getting used to the dial versus buttons but overall like this oven. January 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this Microwave We recently ordered the 1250W 2.2 Cu. Ft. Convertible Microwave NN-SE982S microwave directly from Panasonic and are very happy with it. It looks good and is very spacious. The dial is so much easier to use than punching in numbers. The Sensor Cook feature is really nice, it cooked a whole sweet potato to perfection. So far we are very satisfied. November 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Microwave - Solid product Love the overall design. Well made. Clean lines. Lots of features. September 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best micro wave so far Shipped very fast - very large interior love the reheat senser September 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product, Features and Value We had an old Quasar Microwave Convection oven that was 22 years old and was finally ready to be replaced. We didn't use the Convection part so we looked for a replacement that was similar in size and features without the convection option. This and the model just below this were the two we narrowed our search to. We chose this one, as the selector dial did not protrude from the front panel. This has not disappointed us. The oven size, even with the turntable, allows for family sized cookware to be used. It took a bit to get used to the touch wheel, but once you get used to it it is easy and very intuitive. We love it and hope to get a good run of time with this microwave. August 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Panasonic/Inverter ever We're loving our new microwave. Have had an Inverter before so that's not new. (As always, we love the smooth cooking... oatmeal is right every time.) This new unit gives us more: - defrosting that actually works - easier no-moving-parts setup. The electronic touch-dial is very very nice. (Hint: spin at the edge for slow increase... spin near the middle for fast!) My only wish... when spinning through the genius sensor cooking choices... it would help if it listed the meaning of the current number. August 16, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good but not long lasting This is my fourth Panasonic. The first one was in the 80s! That was a workhorse and lasted until I gave it away when I moved. After that, they just aren't built to last more than a few years. My problem with the last unit was the latch. When it stops working correctly, the unit won't run. Unfortunately the current units still have the same latch. Most manufacturers are using the same type of latch. So since I know and like the features of a Panasonic, there is no sense in changing brands because of the latch. August 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by NN-SE982S Microwave Everything was exactly as promised. Delivery was faster than I expected. Easy to use. July 15, 2015
