Panasonic NN-SD997S offers convenience and quality 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. A great new feature helps you keep your food warm, right until the moment you are ready to eat. With pulsing technology, low microwave power keeps the food temp at the optimum temperature. The stainless steel fingerprint resisting finish will help you keep your microwave looking good as new!

Panasonic Good Housekeeping Seal

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 bought this model nn sd997s for a microwave within 1 year, the microwave shut off within 15 secs. The warranty is not even worth it because it you still have to pay diagnostic fee. How is a megatron going to go bad within 1 year. Take care.

      Comments about Panasonic Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

      Probably the best microwave I've seen or used. I like having a physical knob to dial-in cooking parameters in addition to the push buttons. I love the ability to do multiple-stage cooking, but only wish I could save these settings. For example, the pre-programmed setting for oatmeal ("Recipe #1") does not work for steel-cut oatmeal, which is the only oatmeal I eat. Additionally, it would be nice if the Sensor Cook Chart revealed the actual settings pre-programmed into each Recipe 1-18 to get a better sense of the nuances of microwave cooking. Lighting inside could be brighter to better see food as it cooks.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Excellent all around!

        I had the same problem many other users had. The door interlock failed in 20 months. It cooks and functions just fine, but the door interlock design is simply amateurish. DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL - or any other Panasonic model with the same type of interlock.

        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.

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Panasonic Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

        Bought mine 6 years ago. It was top-rated, convenient and easy to use. Then today the display showed H97 - apparently a fatal error. I threw out 2 cheap microwaves when I got this only because they were too small, but both lasted twice as long and still worked when I got rid of them. Never again Panasonic, I'll take my chances with another brand thanks.

          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.

            For what's meant to be a premium microwave oven, our family got approximately two years of use out of it before it suffered the killer H97 error. As was the case for many other owners of this model, it was actually less expensive to replace it than have it fixed. We were obviously not impressed, and switched to another brand of microwaves.
