Microwaving Has Evolved

Unlike traditional microwaves that rely on pulse-on, pulse-off cooking at lower temperatures, patented Inverter Technology generates a steady stream of power at all temperature settings. The result? Consistent, evenly prepared food — edges to center — across a wider range of cooking techniques. This delivery of microwave energy allows delicate foods to simmer without overcooking, so foods have the look and taste you expect, without the wait. Most important, everyone enjoys delicious food that's easier and faster to prepare, and better retains its color, texture and nutrients.

1200 Watt high power enables quicker cooking times in a full-size 1.2 cubic feet interior. The precision touch-button control panel and four-digit green display provide a sleek, high-end look and a practically effortless cooking experience. And twelve preset menu options for everyday meals, side dishes, vegetables and more maximize everyday cooking convenience. Choose between stylish white or black door and exterior countertop models. Each is designed to complement any décor and provide a minimal footprint on countertops.

Better Cooking with Inverter Technology

Patented Inverter Technology delivers a seamless stream of cooking power even at low settings. With the continuous, linear output of Inverter, not only will your food be easily and quickly prepared, you can confidently cook, and even poach, braise and steam foods to perfection. Just as important, the essential vitamins and nutrients you expect in all your meals will be retained.

Great Cooking, No Guesswork

With one-touch sensor cook and reheat, Panasonic takes the guesswork out of creating great meals by automatically setting power levels and adjusting cooking, defrosting and reheating times. The sensor measures the amount of steam naturally produced during cooking and signals the oven's advanced microprocessor to automatically calculate the remaining cooking time at any power level for optimum results.

Sensor Inverter Turbo Defrost

The microwave oven is also designed with Turbo Defrost to help prepare food more efficiently than any Panasonic microwave before it. This advanced feature utilizes a microwave sequencing system based on Inverter's continuous-power delivery method to thaw foods more evenly and quickly.

Sleek Controls

A sleek, touch-button control panel and four-digit display provide a high-end look. And nine preset menu options provide automatic convenience for hot cereals and omelets, frozen after-school snacks, vegetables, frozen entrees, pasta, potatoes and more. Controls and sensors automatically set power levels, monitor and cooking time and when done, keep foods warm until ready to serve.

Keep Warm Feature

Keeps foods like vegetables, soups, hors d'oeuvres, gravies, sauces and desserts warm and delicious in the oven until they're ready to serve. The microwave delivers a pulsing, automatic stream of low microwave power to maintain constant temperature levels in foods without overcooking.

More Conveniences

More everyday advantages include a quick-minute timer that lets you set cooking and reheating times in single-minute intervals, or add another minute when needed. And a handy delay start feature and bright, time-of-day clock and versatile timer provide additional convenience. For safety, a child safety lock is also included to keep young hands from operating the oven.

Maximum Interior, Minimal Footprint

The smart, compact design of the Inverter power unit devotes less space to electronics and controls and far more interior capacity. These smaller, more efficient energy and control units are also up to eight pounds lighter than conventional microwave components. All of which adds up to less weight and a minimal exterior footprint when placed on a counter.

Interactive Menu Screen

A helpful Menu Action Screen scrolls step-by-step cooking instructions for a full range of appetizers, main courses, side dishes, soups, sauces, casseroles, desserts and more across the display in your choice of English or Spanish. It's almost like having a professional chef to assist you in the kitchen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DEAD after just 6 months Stopped working after 6 months. Even before then was not too happy. Couldn't increase or decrease timing when in use. Thought the inverter technology was overrated as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it! After reading other reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. But after using it for a month, I am pleased with the product. The inverter technology and the defrosting without cooking claims caught my attention. So far, defrosting has worked as advertised, which is great. The interior light comes on when you open the door and while it is cooking. Cooking time is easy to set manually. Just press 1, 3, 0 and start for 1 min, 30 sec. The sensor reheat seems to work quite well for leftovers, although large bowls probably require stirring and pressing sensor reheat a second time to warm throughout. The fan is a little noisier, but it's not that big a deal. Too soon to comment on quality/durability, but based on performance to date, I would definitely buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Buy Panasonic Microwave Panasonic Invertermodel NN-SN651W stopped working after 14 months of light use. This is a bad failed product and insult to consumer. A very poor reflection on panasonic brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only lasted 18 months! Was replaced by a cheaper 1,000 Watts model microwave, not panasonic, that cooks slightly faster and hotter than the 1,200 Watt Panasonic..... which was one-half the cost! I was disappointed to say the least. The Panasonic was noisy while running and had a loud noisy vibration from the real sheet metal that took 4 shims to reduce the noise. There was no lamp while cooking which I also didn't like. I was looking forward to the Panasonic technology for reduced power cooking and did like that but I really didn't notice that the power reduction method appear to make any difference in cooking or reheating food. I dislike being so negative, but I was expecting the Panasonic to be a top of the line name but the microwave did only last 18 months. BTW, we are only two people using the microwave so it shouldn't have been overworked or abused. Too bad.....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke after 14 months Purchased this microwave just over a year ago and it just stopped working. Everything just went dark in the middle of microwaving and it won't even light up or turn on now. Very disappointing. I had my last microwave (different brand) for 12 years. This one was more expensive and barely lasted a year. No longer under warranty, so I can't even get it fixed. Such a waste. The microwave wasn't that great overall anyway. It felt cheap to me, and always overcooked everything if you used it full power, so I had to use it at a lower power level every time I wanted to cook something. If you're undecided on what microwave to buy, I'd choose something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This microwave works just fine. No problems with it thus far. Fairly quiet unit. Ease of operation.
