Product Details

Panasonic NNH965 Full-Size Genius Inverter Black Microwave, Model NN-H965BF

Panasonic Good Housekeeping Seal

Introducing the new Panasonic Full-Size Genius Inverter Black Microwave, Model NN-H965BF. Panasonic has added Inverter Technology to the new NN-H956 countertop microwave, in order to revolutionize microwaves. With Inverter Technology, food is consistently cooked to perfection, leaving you with the most delicious, colorful and flavorful food every time. If you ever find yourself cooking more delicate foods, you will be pleased to find out that inverter technology also puts an end to dry, or overcooked food. If this isn't enough, Panasonic has advanced the new Genius Counter Top Microwave with Turbo Defrost, allowing you to defrost foods even faster than previous models. For your convenience, Panasonic has included a quick minute button, allowing you to quickly cook foods with just the touch of a button. With functions like sensor cooking and a popcorn key, it is clear Panasonic has designed this new Panasonic microwave with you in mind. Quickly cook even the most delicate foods to perfection with the new Panasonic Genius Inverter Microwave.

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!

    Comments about Panasonic Genius Countertop Microwave In White:

    This is my second microwave from Panasonic. I had an exactly the same product for the last 8 years+ and finally died. Found the identical one after so many years with a pretty reasonable price tag with free shipping via FedEx("ship within 1-3 business days"). I ordered and waited and waited. The product behaves the same as old one. Perhaps, a slight improvement on several things. Over all, a pretty sturdy and functional good product. The only thing that I did not like was that the product did not arrive as it said it would within 1-3 business days. When I tracked the status on FedEx web site, it disappeared from the radar twice for a whole day. It took more of 5 days from the time of the order.

          This is the most spacious microwave ever! I'll bet a turkey could fit inside! Seriously! Very pleased. My other microwave died so I had to get a replacement. I paid twice as much for that microwave as I did for this one.....and this one has more features and I'm serious when I say a turkey could be placed inside. It fits perfectly on my countertop...underneath my cabinets! Thank you!

            Throw away item. This microwave cooks well for a while, then the cooking time gradually increases and finally after about a year and a half or so either the inverter power supply or the magnetron stops working and the unit becomes a brick. Expect to pay almost as much to repair it as you paid for it, so buy another one.

                        As others have also experienced, after 1-2 years of usage, suddenly the microwave won't cook your food anymore. Some people can get it to still work if they slam the door closed for awhile, but this just makes it worse, if this works at all. There is a design defect on the door/switch mechanism that the microwave uses to detect if the door is closed. When this thin sheet metal bends over time due to the closing of the door, it's busted. Panasonic should repair this defect for their users, even out of warranty. Everyone has stories of previous microwaves lasting 10-20 years. Mine barely made 2 years. Pathetic.

                            Shipping and handling went smoothly, except one side has a ding but it was not very noticeable so we decided not to send it back for a replacement. We have just started using it and noticed right away the difference in heating time since this one heats much quicker then our old unit. Not sure how many watts the old unit was but it was one of the larger units when purchased. So far we are very pleased. When I purchased on line I did not realize that the heating plate and turntable came with it so ended up buying those items.
