    We purchased NN-SD681S for my 75 yo mom. Because she is a bit of a technophobe, we tested the unit in our kitchen. After more than a month of daily use, we were very happy with this oven. It very powerful and also compact - and was a perfect fit for the cutout in my mom's kitchen. Mom installed the oven in Dec 2011 and she loves it! The display is bright blue and easy for her to read. The stainless steel is brushed steel so it does not show fingerprints or smudges. The dial is more intuitive than the key pad. The reheat works beautifully - perfectly and automatically reheating leftovers without cold or overcooked spots. Best microwave we've ever used.

    So here is the thing: The oven looks great, has plenty of room, is SO much lighter than the 19 year old model this replaced, and is fairly quiet. I especially like the fact that the interior light is only on when the oven is in use - not when the door is open. This is good because I find it helpful to leave the door open after use to air out steam and odors. And, unlike our previous oven, now the light won't stay on!
    BUT - Two things:
    First, when I used the oven to re-heat half an acorn squash in a glass pan covered with plastic wrap, the butter in the center of the squash just would not melt. Not after several minutes of microwaving....the squash became hot, though there were cold spots, but the butter took more than several minutes to melt. This made no sense.
    Second, I am not so sure this oven doesn't draw more power than advertised. We have the oven plugged into a power strip for safety reasons. Our old oven was also in the power strip. The old oven never once tripped the power strip. However, this oven has done so several times already.... Obviously this is troubling but it hasn't happened the last few times we used it. I'm hoping it was just an aberration....but like I said, the jury is still out on this one.

    Worst Purchase Ever

    By 

    from Maryland

    Pros

      Cons

      • getting repair service is inconvenient
      • Poor quality

      Best Uses

        This microwave stopped working after 15 mos. The warranty is only 1 year. The closest service center is 60 miles away and there is no option to mail the microwave back to Panasonic for repair. So at this point, my only option is to buy a new microwave. I will definitely not purchase another Panasonic microwave or any other Panasonic product.

                  I've had this Microwave for about 2 years now & couldn't be happier. Does everything I need it to do plus more. Only drawback is the lack of lighting when you open the door. Also, as everyone else has mentioned....fingerprints galore. Would prefer a white or black Panasonic. My last oven lasted a little over 10 years, so it will be a while before I will need a new one. Guess I will be wiping fingerprints for a while my friends.

                  Wish the unit were a bit quieter. Outside smudges easily. Prefer to be able to choose the inside light stay on or off and be able to silence the beeper. Perplexed that this model came up with all my reviews for convection/microwave ovens and it is not. Can't bake a cake etc.

                      Granted its been a decade since I've had to purchase a microwave, but this unit has exceeded my expectations. The proof is in the fact that neither the wife nor I have had to read the instruction manual in order to be able to defrost, reheat, cook popcorn, etc. One small knock is that its a magnet for fingerprints, but hey, with stainless steel, thats par for the course.
