Genius Prestige Countertop/Built-In Microwave Oven with Inverter Turbo Defrost™ and One-Touch Genius Sensor Cook & Reheat, Stainless

The NNSD997S microwave oven features 1250W of high power output, and is not only stylish, but easy-to-operate for quick and easy cooking. Elegant and attractive, the pop-out dial with blue LED ring is a departure from the standard keypad found on most microwave ovens. The fingerprint resistant finish helps reduce the amount of unsightly smudging, so your microwave will look its best even when you're preparing some of your messiest recipes.

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.

I replaced a Sears Kenmore microwave of similar power and capacity. The Kenmore was damaged by lightning or I'd still have it. I bought this one because it was large, had the right power and similar controls. I was prepared to really like this appliance. I liked the inverter power control. I liked the way it looked. It had good reviews. I have to say that I've been disappointed. The microwave oven has some missing features and it has one really fatal flaw that, had I been aware of it, I would not have purchased this oven.
1. The fatal flaw is that you can't see inside of the oven when it is cooking. Period. The tiny useless light is so dim that unless your kitchen is in complete darkness you can't see inside. You will over cook, boil over and burn more things than you ever imagined you would because you can't see inside of the oven.
2. My old oven used a rotating device to evenly distribute the microwave energy inside of the oven. When you need to cook in a large rectangular dish you can turn off the rotating tray and the oven still cooks evenly. This oven lacks that feature, using instead the cheap cardboard window for the microwaves that the lowest quality ovens use. It is totally dependent on the rotating tray to evenly heat the food. This reduces the useful capacity of the oven significantly.
3. You can't turn off the tray. If you want to cook in a rectangular dish the tray is just going to go back and forth while trying to rotate. Your food is going to cook unevenly. Be warned.
4. The tray is not as stable as it should be. It is large but the supporting ring is small. The tray tips easily. If it had been recessed into the bottom as was my old one, then this would not be an issue but it isn't.
In the end I'm very disappointed in this "top of the line" Panasonic product. If you are a casual cook or only use a microwave to reheat things then this oven will be ok. If you cook a lot then you'll be very disappointed in this oven.

Comments about Panasonic Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

This was a replacement of our last Panasonic microwave. We like the unit but our last one only lasted 8 years and according to the sales person, that is good. I believe that these units should last longer than 8 years after spending $200.

    This microwave is a replacement for a 9 year old inverter defrost Panasonic model. HANDS DOWN improvement. I love that you use the dial to dial in the precise weight or time. Solidly built and looks great with my Viking appliances, as well. Extremely happy with the microwave and the service received from Abt.

            The door has always been difficult to close due to the door latch design since the day we bought it. Eventually, it got to the point that you needed to slam it closed 3-4 times to get it to latch properly and run. I give up. It's going in the trash. This is the shortest lived microwave we've ever owned. Very disappointed in this product.

                I formerly had a GE micro and loved it. After 17 years, I had to retire it and only this micro fit the built in space. The GE had a rack which I loved and without the round turntable, much more capacity. Also more stable. I don't like the timer dial on this micro and the read- out is difficult to see unless at the right angle. This micro is attractive but the trim kit sticks out from the cabinet 1" all the way around. Not flush, so more surfaces to clean. Once the trim kit is on, there are nooks and crannies everywhere that will be a cleaning nightmare. Ladies, get out the Q tips. This is not an appliance that you will be able to just wipe down. I don't think I would have purchased this if I could have gotten something else that fit the space.
