Inverter Technology

With Panasonic Inverter Technology you get delicious flavor along with great color and texture in the food you cook. The consistent delivery of microwave energy means delicate foods can simmer without overcooking. Which means dinner has the look and taste you expect -- without the wait.

Genius Microwave

The Sensor Cooking button takes the guesswork out of cooking by automatically setting power levels and adjusting cooking or defrosting time. The sensor measures the amount of steam produced and signals the microprocessor to calculate the remaining cooking time at the appropriate power level. So you get the perfect meal every time.

Inverter Turbo Defrost

Panasonic has taken Auto Defrost to a new level with the Turbo Defrost, which allows you to defrost foods even faster than before. Panasonic Turbo Defrost technology is an advanced microwave sequencing system using the inverter's 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, doing all the work for you.

Keep Warm Feature

A steady delivery of low microwave power keeps food temperatures constant — so stews, gravy, and even desserts remain warm until ready to be served.

Quick Minute Feature

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

Built-In Installation*

For a streamlined look in your kitchen, this Genius Countertop Microwave Oven can be installed in the wall using an optional matching trim kit.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great features, concerned about quality This Panasonic microwave replaced an almost identical 5 yr old model that had sudden overall failure. This model has the large capacity desired and functionality of the "inverter" technology that we wanted. We consider the price to be "mid-range", not really a "cheap" microwave. Our concern is our historical trouble with Panasonic product failures...a TV, cordless phone, radio and now the previous microwave, always moderately beyond their warranty. While this microwave was the only one we could find with all the features we wanted, we would have bought another brand had one been available. October 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 price was comparable to other competitors, shipping was quick, and performs as you would expect October 7, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Initally passable, but failed after four months This is the second oven that I bought from Panasonic. The first one failed after 21 months, and the second after 4 months. The warranty of the products seems to be a myth August 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleasantly surprised at the efficiency it is larger and lighter than my older microwave and defrosts quicker. It heats leftovers quickly. I have not used it much but so far it exceeds my expectations. August 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Quality microwave I purchased this microwave after a lot of research. We've had it about three weeks now and it's been fantastic. We try to use all of the different settings and most of them are fine. The oatmeal setting didn't cook properly but the others did well. Fit and finish are very good. The only question I will have is quality and how long will the microwave last without repair. So far we are very happy. July 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product and service from Panasonic this is our third Panasonic appears the latest model is the best. the previous two were very similar to this one...the same problem with both "The Infamous door latch failure". This new model appears to be better. I was told the problem has been corrected. we were pleased with the online price from the company...better than the big box stores, arrived in two days with free shipping. we like the tactile keys...but would recommend placing the power-level button up where the popcorn button is....use the power button much more. The technical service was very helpful. July 28, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Scratched Microwave Received the microwave and the door had many scratches on it. Around 12 small ones and one large one. Is a stainless steel model. Tried to work out a solution by calling the given number. Only recourse was to return it. What a hassle. July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Everything was just as they said it would be, it arrived when they said it would and I am very happy with my choice. June 1, 2015
