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:

I have another that is 3 years older and I love this model. However, after the third delivery, I still notice that the door doesn't close as tight as my original and the inside housing has seams that don't quite meet at the top left. My first microwave developed fog between the door glass that was inaccessible.
ABT was very efficient at replacing these appliances for the issues.

Service and delivery comments:

There was only a problem on the second delivery because the warehouse was trying to protect it from damage, but packed it on it's end, which jarred the door even more.

Panny Inverter MW Review

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Defrosting
    • Leftovers
    • Quick Meals

    Comments about Panasonic Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

    Display and controls take a little time to get used to. Sensor cooking table on MW inside of door for convenience. Excellent at sensor heating. Was a little disappointed at defrosting. Lots of room. And this is just me, with the quick minute button, you still have to hit start. I would assume that one just hits the button and it would start, but no it is two buttons, so not so quick. I also wish it was a 30 sec vs minute button. And just a personal issue that my wife actually likes, the notifying buzzer beeps about 5-6 times, and is not very loud. Our old MW was loud and kept beeping for an extended period of time.

    Would definitely recommend this unit to folks.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery ahead of schedule. Ships in the Panny microwave box so if you dont want someone to know what is in the box, sorry charlie.

          Best microwave we've ever owned. I have mixed feelings about the "dial" interface; it's flash and it works but I think a keypad would be more practical.

Hoping Panasonic will offer to remedy its design shortcomings. No one budgets for having to replace a basic core kitchen appliance which has had light use every 4 years....
