About Me Casual Cook
Comments about Panasonic Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave:
I picked the microwave for a wall mount. This unit has clean lines that matched my cabinet style. The controls are simple. The electric wheel that is used to set the timer can be frustrating when trying to enter an exact time. However, you usually don't need to enter a time accurate to one second.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivered on time and without damage.

The door problem
By Zu yao Zhang
from United States
I bought the microwave three ago as 1.6 Cu. Ft. Countertop/Built-In Microwave with Inverter Technology NN-SE782S Stainless NN-SE782S but this morning the door can not closed, I open the door back find the hock connect the door hook spring was broken , I feel the problem is the design, the plastic hook is too small and too weak ,without it the machine can not work. it is 2mm thick only, every time close the door should pull it, it is very easy broken. now I install a screw at the door, to connect the spring, but it works not very well ,reluctantly can use. so I ask you give me a way to solve this problm . Thank you very much

Door Latch failure 1 to 2 years after purchase
Check what people say online before purchasing. I have purchased this microwave two times. I use my microwave to cook several times a day. I do NOT slam the door or treat it poorly in any way. I keep it very clean. The first time, the door latch quit working at 2 years. It cost half the price of a new oven to fix so got another one, and made a point of treating it very gently on purpose. Made it just past one year and out goes the latch. I am really disappointed because I use mine a lot and need it to work. Otherwise it is a great microwave oven, easy to use. Apparenly no one cares about quality anymore, just spend more money for a new one. If you are so inclined, there are numerous sites showing ways to fix the latch on this oven. It is a common problem for panasonic according to comments online.

First microwave that doesn't turn on the light when the door opens. They said they surveyed and folk said it was a good idea. Better to turn on the kitchen lights than use that little bulb to see what your doing when putting stuff in the oven. Sounds like a way to get away with a cheaper bulb

Panasonic quality has gone down
from Sarasota, FL, USA
I installed this microwave NN-SE782S in a custom built enclosure with a trim kit. After 4 months, the door would not open. I made two 108 mile round trips to drop off and pick up from the service center. I reinstalled the MW and the third time I pushed the button the door would not open. Now I have to make two more 108 mile round trips. I would throw this piece of junk away and buy a different brand but the screw holes from the trim kit would be visible, along with the fact that the cherry cabinet now has a permanent difference in the finish where the trim kit was covering the wood. I notice that a similar model, NN-SE797S, which has been in production since 2007, has what appears to be the same door latch. This model has also had complaints about the door. So that tells me that even though Panasonic had a history of door problems for 5 years before releasing the 782S model, they went ahead and sold them with what appears to be the same the defective design.

Best microwave we've ever had.
from Louisville, Kentucky
This microwave brings microwave cooking to a new level. We've used our previous microwaves for reheating many items and steaming vegetables, but not much else. They cooked meats when you were trying to defrost them and cooked foods very unevenly. This one looks everything very evenly and defrost like a charm. We now are finding ourselves cooking something from most every meal in the microwave! The only problem we had learned to use it was determining how long to cook items. With 1250 W, it's much more powerful than most microwaves, so you have to go lower than the recommended time for most menu items.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the new Genius Prestige NN-SE982S
from Thornton, IL
I am a previous owner of a Prestige Genius Inverter Microwave model, but I have to say, this new model is awesome. Based on the two 'Con' comments, the two existing reviews must be for a different model, because the NN-SE983S does NOT have a knob with a blue light around it. This model contains an Electrostatic Touch Dial which only lights up (in blue) when you're programming the temp, time, etc. Once the start button is pressed, the blue light goes out. I love the overall features of this microwave and the quality put into it.

Lights are awesome
Cooks fast, but I couldn't ignore the beautiful lighting system that is on this product. The other review guy has no idea what he is talking about, the lights sold it for me. Love them!

Love the microwave.... do NOT like the BRIGHT light around the knob. This light serves no purpose, it is just decorative - NOT!!
