    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.

    Finger print magnet

      Comments about Panasonic 1.2 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

      One of the reasons I bought this microwave is because it is stainless steel front but turned out that it's a finger print magnet and not easy to wipe clean the prints. Now everywhere we touched has ugly looking spots. Another thing I don't like about this microwave is no light when you open the door. Only when it's cooking the light comes on inside. Inverter cooking is great it heats food evenly. We only uses it for heating food and drinks not for cooking.

      Great but could be better

      By 

      from Los Angeles, CA, USA

      Comments about Panasonic 1.2 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave Oven:

      The microwave is well constructed and works well, but as others have mentioned the lack of an oven light when opening the door is a bit perplexing. Unless the kitchen is well lit, reaching into the dark cavity to take something out that's hot is a bit risky.

              Extremely happy with this purchase. Love the way we can dial the amount of time needed, or just select the quick minute button. Will definitely recommend this to anymore purchasing a new microwave.

                  I purchased this unit to replace my 10 year old Panasonic, and thus far I am very happy. My old unit was rated at 1300, this 1200, and I see no power difference. The program sensors work well and, even though i expected to dislike the knob over buttons, I like it. My only complaint is when the door opens all the way, it is not smooth. Happy with purchase.

                      Works perfect. Only improvement I would make is when the door opens turn on the light, otherwise it is much better than my more expensive LG Microwave. Food from the Microwave is more evenly cooked.

                              The dial knob only seems to go up increments of 10 seconds (as far as I know) making it impossible to heat something up at any other time increment. It is too sensitive at times making it easy to overshoot. The keypad would have been much better. The rest of the function on the microwave are not clear either. Reading the instruction manual is A MUST!!!!
