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 4.4 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
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 NN-SE982S Microwave Everything was exactly as promised. Delivery was faster than I expected. Easy to use. July 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good MIcrowave This is out third panasonic microwave. The other two just quit. I am hoping that this one last longer. We really liked the other two and Consumers also liked this model so we ordered another one. Have onlly had it for a month but like it. July 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 This is a very quit microwave and one of the most efficient I've seen ie it heats significantly faster than some lower end units at the same power levels. Setting a cook time can be a bit tricky as the jog wheel is a bit imprecise. June 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product We have only had this for a week but so far it has met our expectations but exceeded them. I can't wait to use it to its full capability! The only disadvantage I could see for some people would be the size but to do what is expected of it, it needs to be that large. Finally, at first I was slightly intimidated by the interface but after the first try I realized that was extremely user friendly, even my stuck-in-the19th century husband found it easy to figure out how to use it. It is well worth every penny. Very impressive product! On top of the excellence of the product itself, it arrived well in advance if its expected arrival date. June 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Still making quality products. This microwave is an updated version of our 10 plus year model that it replaced. The old one is still working but was "confiscated" by our son who wore out a different brand in about 2 years. This one has a few more presets and a dial instead of buttons. We are getting used to the dial selector and find it to be better than we expected. The only shortcoming I've noticed so far is that it has a much softer door release than the old one. It makes it seem like something is not right but it works good. Too bad there isn't a model with all the same features in Black instead of stainless. Still, it's a super microwave for home use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by years before brake down only 5 first one lasted 25 If this last longer than my first Panasonic microwave 25 years. That will be good kudos., but if it only last 5 years like my second Panasonic microwave I will have to check around on other brands April 21, 2015
