I've had this for a week now and I can't believe how much better it is than the one I had previously by another manufacturer. I've used it for popcorn, pre-made meals (tv dinners), frozen entrees purchased from [@], canned soups and day old Italian takeout.It is superb at providing even cooking and it cooks much faster than my previous micro. Last night I used the cooking sensor and the entree turned out perfectly.Cleaning the interior is easy and the circular tray can be put in the dishwasher. The outside of the unit is easy to clean up too with the wipe of a sponge.I think that this microwave is terrific and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Pros: Attractive, Easy to clean, Easy to install, Good power output, Heats evenly, Simple controls, Simple display

Limited life of 1 yr. 3 weeks

By  from Houston, TX, USA area
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 3

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.

Needs Improvement!

By  from New Jersey
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 3

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.
