I received this microwave as a gift two years ago. I had to make some adjustments on the cooking time as most recipies are for 700-900W units. Other than that, it has served me well until yesterday when I was heating a cup of water for tea and spaks flew out the back of it. Today, it is recycled material but after reading reviews on most other brands, I will replace it with the same make/model.

We purchased this microwave oven because a microwave we have had for eleven years died. It was another brand and we could not purchase another like unit because that model is no longer available. So we started searching for a similar size, our counter is small between the fridge and a cupboard. We wanted a similar wattage and made the rounds of the stores in the third largest city in the state of Illinois. We thought after all of that effort we had found a good replacement. We are disappointed. It met the size and wattage requirement and had a 'new' Inverter technology which we were told would be great for us. It doesn't even pop popcorn worth a darn. With our old unit we hit "Popcorn' and chose 'Regular' or 'Snack' size and it did a beautiful job. We understood that it used "Sensor" technology. This Panasonic has three different ounce sizes to choose from, none of which exactly fit "Orville's snack size, and I can't get a descent popped bag. I've tried modifing the time using the plus and minus capability but to no good results. My wife is very unhappy that it is hard to see what is going on in the oven while heating something because the light in the oven is on the side near the front and would be much better placed near the rear so it would light what is rotating on the table and not glare in your eyes. She is really unhappy that when you open the door to check on something being heated the light does not stay on and you are not able to see to stir your soup or if it is boiling over. And if it has, you can't see very well to clean up the mess. We sure miss our old microwave!

Works perfectly, so far.
from Central Vermont
We've only had it a couple of weeks, so I don't want to gush just yet. The only thing I don't care for, so far, is having to push the Power button multiple times in order to select the power level; our old microwave allowed us to push "Power" then use the number pad to select the Power level. Warming, heating, and defrosting features work well, and faster than our old microwave. I would buy this model again.
Good value, overall very satisfied
from eastern NC
This is the model that replaces my old one. The old one was very satisfactory, and gave good service, so I'm sticking with what has worked for me. Love the high power, and the inverter technology. HATE the loud beeper; it's twice as loud as the old one, but really the only negative feature to me.
Great Value Microwave
Cooks food very thoroughly. Literally could not be better at being this exact model in this exact color. Would buy again. But I don't have to.
only thing didn't like it is very noisy .it does a good job
First thing is: It heats stuff, as it should. My dislikes: I need a flashlight or other source to read the keypad; once the power level is set don't dare leave it unattended or the contents may be not what you want as the level is not displayed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
All powerful microwave, teeny tiny counter space
By Granny Knit & Spin
from Covington VA
I'm so pleased with this Panasonic microwave. Our old one was Panasonic: never gave a moments trouble so we looked for the brand again. This one is not as tall so fits better in my historic house short countertop space. It's quieter, light weight, more powerful, cutting cooking time, and seems to have a knack for staying clean. I can still fit a 9 X 13 pyrex baking dish in it, too. I love it! Very competitive price, too!
from Lake County Illinois
Another wonderful product replacement.
from Manalapan, NJ
Purchased this unit to replace a 30 year old Amana m/w! As with all of my past Panasonic purchases, was not disappointed. Intelligent user-friendly controls. Learning to use inverter features did not take long to master. Construction and size are what I expected from Panansonic --- compact and durable. Specifically, this oven heats/defrosts quickly and evenly. The only disappointment is that the interior light only works when the oven is running. Would have been nice to have option to turn light on/off. Otherwise, I anticipate many years of consistent use from this product.
Best Little Microwave
from Seattle, WA, USA
My old microwave went bust, I new I need a good unit with inverter technology for a good price. When I ordered my microwave online the unit I had ordered wasn't available in the color I wanted but it was available in white, so I went ahead with it and I have not been disappointed yet. The inverter makes cooking even on the inside as well as the outside. I use it a lot to defrost frozen hamburger meat and pork chops and it works every time. So far I have had no complaints and it has been quite dependable.
