Features

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.

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.

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.

Reviews

NN-SD681S is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Limited life of 1 yr. 3 weeks This is a great microwave, but it only lasted 1 year 3 weeks. It has all the features I needed and was easy to operate. Perhaps one should consider the extended warranty because it is really a nice microwave.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs Improvement! I was so impressed when I researched Inverter Technology by Panasonic. I knew of the personal negatives I would have with this model when I ordered it, but I would like to think that Panasonic can improve upon these. I ordered this one for our RV because when my home microwave dies, I would love the have the largest Panasonic model with features I am used to. Guess I am spoiled by the features on my current home microwave. CONS: My personal negatives are as follows: 1) When the food is done, there are 5 beeps, not a constant intermittent beep until you open the door. Left my coffee, etc. in the microwave until I finally remembered it was in there. 2) Cannot change the power level when food is cooking. 3) Cannot set the cooking time to exact time. Uses intervals of 5 seconds on the dial - not a fan of the dial. 4) Cannot use the timer feature while the microwave is in use. 5) Only available in stainless steel which shows smudges terribly. 5) No butter melt feature. 6) Cannot adjust the sound or LED brightness. PROS: 1) Cooks food uniformly - no burnt edges. 2) Defrosts food uniformly. 3) Sensor Feature is great once you use it often enough. 4) Love the blue LED display 5) Love the Keep Warm feature. Have not used long enough to comment on durability. One can only hope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I researched and used a Consumer magazine to study testing results such as reliability and cooking evenness. Absolutely thrilled at the results of how easily I can adjust the power level and time. Very spacious interior. Love the dials and blue LED display. Very stylish and great addition to the kitchen. This is the best microwave I have purchased by far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Replacement When my old Panasonic microwave failed, I went on the website and to search for a replacement. A customer service rep. (Jessica) came on and asked if she could help me. I told her the model that I wanted to replace and my current needs and she was able to suggest a very suitable replacement and I received it and am very happy with it. The price was reasonable and the shipping was fast.

FAQs
  • What should I check if my microwave stops working?

    Check the fuse/circuit breaker for the outlet to see if it has been tripped or blown. Check other outlets to see if there is a GFI (Ground Fault Interrupt) outlet that is on the same circuit as the outlet used for the unit and see if it needs to be reset. Connect the oven to another outlet to see if unit is still operational. If the unit is still not working, please contact a local authorized servicer for diagnosis and repair.

  • What should I do if my microwave display is not working?
    Check to make sure unit is plugged into a working outlet by plugging in another device to determine if power is available at the receptacle.
    If power is not available at the outlet check your fuse/circuit breaker, panel.

    Note: Newer homes/buildings are generally wired with GFI (Ground Fault Interrupt) receptacles, if your building is equipped with GFI receptacles be sure to check if the circuit breaker directly on the receptacle has been tripped and requires reset.

    If you determine the outlet has power but the microwave still is not functioning, contact a local Panasonic authorized servicer for repair.

  • How do I remove the odor from inside the microwave?
    Combine 1 to 1-1/2 cups (250 - 375 ml) water with the juice and peel of one lemon in a 2 quart microwave safe bowl. Heat contents on high for 5 min.(s). After water finishes boiling, wipe interior of oven with a cloth.
