Product Details

Panasonic Full-Size Genius® Inverter® Microwave, Model NN-H965WF

Panasonic Good Housekeeping Seal

Experience the Revolutionary Inverter® Microwave Oven
With Inverter® Microwave Ovens, you’ll have all the power you need to cook with ease, speed, and style. Inverter® technology takes advantage of multiple power levels, and it maintains the best colour, shape, texture, and flavours of your food. Delicate foods can simmer without overcooking on edges and surfaces. And, due to consistent delivery of microwave energy, foods will no longer undercook in the center and have hard overcooked edges. With this technology you’ll enjoy cooking your food – and eating it too!

Features:

Button Panel
Replacing the standard touch-panel control, an effortless-to-operate button panel, found on all of our new “Genius Prestige” ovens, makes it easy to select the desired settings. The Convection Oven takes this simplicity a step further with an added dial for controlling the oven’s temperature. Additionally, time and weight are also controlled by dials.

Keep Warm Function
A pulsing delivery of very low microwave power keeps food temperatures at a constant level--without overcooking. Our improved keep warm menu now includes five items so foods like stew, gravy and desserts remain warm in the oven until you are ready to serve.

Menu Action Screen
The Menu Action Screen display actually tells you what to do next. The words scroll across the screen, displaying the program you’ve selected and telling you the next step. It’s as easy as one touch on the appropriate pad and then following the simple instructions. Display will read out in English, French, or Spanish.

One-Touch Genius Sensor Reheat and Cook
A miniature sensor is the brain behind Panasonic microwave ovens. This device picks up steam from the food as it cooks and relays the signal to the oven's microprocessor. Information is calculated to program the oven to cook each food at the appropriate power level and time required. One touch of a single control pad will activate the sensor, automatically producing perfect cooking results.

Versatile Function Key
The Function Key simplifies the programming of 10 useful non-cooking functions, such as the Child Lock. Just press the Function Key and the Menu Action Screen will display easy-to-follow steps to complete the desired action.

The Inverter used in this microwave is fantastic. While it is too early to comment on longevity, it is well worth the investment. Items that were virtually destroyed by our old GE (made by Panasonic) are prepared perfectly by this one. By not cycling full energy on and off into the food at reduced power settings as is customary in older technologies, the food doesn't char or become hard (unless overcooked).

However, nothing is perfect in this world. Some of the pre-programed settings, as well as some of the sensor cooking either under-cooks the food or makes it too hot. Also, for some reason you can't turn off the turntable. This means you can't take full advantage of the large interior because the largest thing you can put in it can't exceed the interior depth.

Lastly, buy this microwave instead of the GE version (also made by Panasonic). It is less expensive and has more features.

As you can read in the many years worth of product reviews, Panasonic has a manufacturing and product quality problem they refuse to correct or they are incapable of fixing. Sign of a poorly managed business and quality control process. We have an earlier version of this product that would not fit a cabinet in newly purchased home. Because of our prior product experience, we mistakenly went back to Panasonic and the nn-h965bf was about the only black microwave to fit the space. Latch problems within 3 1/2 months and non-operational within 6 months. So the old one now sits on the counter for us to use while new awaits a warranty solution. I have not experienced this level of poor quality from Panasonic in the past, but this a clear systemic manufacturing quality issue that makes me not trust them. Quit frankly, I doubt I will trust the durability of the product repair regardless of what service they provide. IT'S A LATCH! HOW HARD CAN IT BE TO FIX A LATCH! THIS TYPE OF LATCH HAS BEEN USED FOR ROUGHLY FORTY YEARS. POOR PRODUCT QUALITY AND A COMPLETE DISRESPECT FOR CONSUMERS TIME TO NOT HAVED CORRECTED THIS ISSUE BY NOW! The only thing worse than the latch is the customer support website!

        We use this microwave from heating up small meals to cooking large meals such as an entire turkey breast in a large glass dish with lid..creating the most juiciest meat ever. There are still many features I haven't even investigated yet.

        It arrived when expected and the gentlemen even carried it up my stairs and into my kitchen even though he didn't have to.. He was very nice.
