Product Details

Panasonic Genius Prestige Inverter NN-SD997S Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven, Model NN-SD997S

Panasonic Good Housekeeping Seal

Panasonic inverter microwave offers convenience and quality right on your countertop! If you are looking for a great microwave that is both sleek and easy to use, the Panasonic NN-SD997S is the perfect solution. Featuring inverter technology that allows you to defrost foods at lightning speeds. Another great new feature this stainless steel microwave offers, is that it helps you keep your food warm, right until the moment you are ready to eat. With pulsing technology, and low microwave power, the stainless microwave keeps your food at the perfect temperature. On top of that, the stainless steel fingerprint resisting finish will help you keep your microwave looking good as new! Cook any meal or snack with the Panasonic inverter microwave.

Key Features:

  • Defrost™, allows you to defrost foods even faster than previous Panasonic Auto Defrost.
  • A pulsing delivery of very low microwave power keeps food temperature at a constant level-without overcooking.
  • Stainless Fingerprint Resistant finish on the front of our Genius Prestige Microwave Ovens helps reduce the amount of unsightly smudging normally found on stainless appliances.
  • With one touch of a single key, the Genius Sensor adjusts power levels and calculates cooking time automatically for various foods.

Features:

Inverter Turbo Defrost Adds a Little Cooking Boost
Panasonic has succeeded in evolving Turbo Defrost™, which allows you to defrost foods even faster than previous Panasonic Auto Defrost. Panasonic Inverter Turbo Defrost technology is an advanced microwave sequencing system using the Inverter low-power delivery feature. It was developed on the basis of what scientists call "Chaos Theory." This design makes it possible to distribute microwave energy with the most appropriate combination of regularity and irregularity.

Keep Food Warm Until You're Ready to Eat
A pulsing delivery of very low microwave power keeps the temperature of your food at a constant level without overcooking. Our improved keep-warm menu now includes five items, so food like stew, gravy and desserts can stay warm in the oven until you are ready to serve.

Multi-Lingual Menu Action Screen with Function Key
The Menu Action Screen is like having a gourmet 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. Our Function Key simplifies the programming of 10 useful, non-cooking functions. Just press the Function Key and the Menu Action Screen will display easy-to-follow steps to complete the desired function.

Reheating and Cooking Made Simple
One-Touch Genius Sensor Cook and Reheat adjusts power levels and calculates cooking times automatically, making reheating and cooking a variety of foods easier than ever.

Make More Room on Your Countertop
The Prestige Countertop Microwave Oven can also be installed in the wall using an optional matching trim kit accessory.

Sleek Control Panel with Blue LED Display
The silver button control panel, illuminated neon blue spin dial and generous 6-digit expanded LED display provide a high-end look and an effortless navigation experience in the kitchen.

I bought this oven to be part of a complete kitchen renovation. I was after something large, easy-to-use, and capable of being built into a cabinet. All of these qualities are present in this unit. I did buy the Panasonic kit to enhance the installation, and have posted a photo of the installed unit with the kit.

I was surprised at the power of the unit, and learned very quickly that Sensor reheating takes all the guesswork out of re-heating leftovers. In the same vein, the defrost cycle is very efficient...defrosting frozen meat quickly without cooking it.

All-in-all, this Panasonic microwave has been a great experience.

Had one for about a year and a half (go figure), now, like other review comments, the door switch won't allow it to run unless you slam the door. I've either got to pay a hefty price to get it repaired or junk it. I've always been happy with Panasonic stuff before, but feel I got a built-in service bill on this unit! Planned obsolescence? These should be recalled and fixed!

            Comments about Panasonic Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

            Unfortunately I need to replace my existing Panasonic built-in with another, or I wouldn't have bought my second unit. My other microwave "broke" because the door locking mechanism attaches to a rather flexible piece of sheet metal that isn't supported. With continued usage, the metal flexes and the door mechanism stops working. Constant readjustment further weakens the metal. All Panasonic had to do was provide a small piece of support, or even an extra bend in the metal. Instead, I get to buy a new Panasonic Microwave every few years to overcome their quality design problems. I like the features and functionality. I just don't like having to replace an appliance due to design problems.

                          Comments about Panasonic Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

                          Hope this Panasonic lasts longer that the last one which lasted only 4 years. Purchased the extended warranty through Square Trade this time based upon our previous experience with a Panasonic.
                          Using the rotating dial to set length of time takes some getting used to. Once you get the hang of it, it works fine. Really like when all the settings are made, the start button lights up blue.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          Exactly on time as requested.

                          ABT dealership in Chicago is great to work with. Initially ordered less expensive microwave and we were very unhappy with it. ABT sent us a return mailing label and then sent us the Panasonic post-dated as requested and it arrived precisely on the requested date. We definitely will use them again. Shopping experience on the ABT website is easy and comprehensive.

                            I am sold on this as the only functional solution to today's kitchen needs. It is a truly unique microwave for upscale kitchens which demand that built-in look, but comes at a fraction of the price. The 10 power levels are TRUE varied and reduced power levels, not just ones that cycle on at full power and then cycle off at various seconds per minute depending on the "percentage" reduced power you need. Thus, for example, you get ACCURATE and EVEN defrosting and true simmering or warming. It can stand alone on the counter or you can purchase the trim kit and install it in a standard 24" depth cabinet, either base or wall. It is so large that it can accommodate the needs of any family. VERY simple controls and displays. This is my second one, and I have not found another one at any price that can touch it. Most designers push your towards the little built-in GE that goes in a 12" cabinet, but it is small, and it doesn't have the same accurately reduced power levels (unless they changed something drastically). We installed our current unit ourselves in under 5 minutes, trim and all. I defintely recommend this over all others.

                            Service and delivery comments:

                            The delivery was actually much faster than promised, and the unit arrived intact with all parts and no damage. The vendor (ABT) I used is known for their customer service and consistency. I wish I had known about them sooner.
