Panasonic NN-CF873S Combination Microwave, Stainless Steel

Product information

Panasonic's premium stainless steel combination model NN-CF873S has a 32 litre cavity and is designed to enable you to cook delicious and nutritious meals your family will love. Packed with innovative features as well as being easy to both use and clean, the microwave also features a modern but timeless design, making it the ideal addition to any contemporary kitchen.

Panasonic’s NN-CF873S microwave features a flatbed, rather than a turntable. The flatbed not only creates a larger cooking area, it also means you can place dishes of all shapes inside the oven. Unlike a turntable, which needs to be removed, the flatbed design is much easier to clean.

Thanks to the 2-level convection cooking you can cook two levels simultaneously, to make even large families happier at mealtimes. A fan circulates the heat evenly throughout the oven so it reaches the food uniformly and efficiently, ideal for roasting and baking. Panasonic’s microwave also features an intelligent Sensor Cooking option that makes preparing perfectly cooked food easier than ever before.

The advanced new electrostatic touch panel with blue LED allows smart, easy setting operation with Swipe & Touch.

Please note: For proper operation, the oven must have sufficient air flow i.e. 5cm at one side, the other being open; 15cm clear over the top; 10cm at the rear.

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Great Combination Oven I purchased this primarily as a second oven and have not been disappointed. Even temperature and excellent results when baking. Preheats is very quick. I'm finding that I'm using it more than my large family oven. Would highly recommend. 26 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does everything I need it to do. Bought this as a replacement for our broken one, same make, auto destructed just out of 2 year cover. This one, however, has a proper oven heating system, not a couple of super heated halogen bulbs in the grill area that the cheaper ones have. I can use this to bake cakes without burning the top of everything. Others have mentioned about the condensation produced and this is certainly true, it does need wiping out after the microwave is used to ensure there is no possibility of corrosion. The self cleaning surface of the oven is superb. It is large capacity and can fit in a lot of food at one time, much better than the turntable microwaves. Overall I am very pleased with this product. 16 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent companion to your main oven & free 5 year warranty from Panasonic Used both as a microwave and convection oven. Only issue experienced was with microwaving baked potatoes that got cooked on one side only. Clearly a turntable has its uses. It did well with convection for meat and Yorkshire puddings. Chose this model as I read a review that the alternative had an ugly left side. Registered it with Panasonic and got a free 5 year warranty and a free £30 Le Creuset dish. 31 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by continues to disappoint I wrote a (the only!) review of the white version about six months ago. I do not like the machine at all and it continues to cook unevenly. I did an experiment: I put two identical mugs, containing identical amounts of cold water (at identical temperature from a jug) in the microwave. One to the right side of the base; the other to the mirror image position on the left. After 4 minutes 20 seconds the one on the right started to boil. It took a further 3 minutes and 10 seconds before the one on the left started to boil. (I used to torch to light the inside to see what was happening!) This seems to be a reasonable test of even cooking. Which it does not do. 31 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product I love the door that comes down, flat bed, no turntable, arrangements. Inside is a joy with so much more than the usual space available in microwaves. Instructions are OK. Results no problems at all. It does get hot when using convection only so will not use this for cooking periods in excess of 20-25 mins. 10 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Purchase Very pleased with this new purchase, being a flatbed it has loads of room, no annoying turntable. Easy to use controls, the slider switch takes a little getting used to. The grill works well and having two elements it grills evenly. The convection oven heats up quickly and cooks the food well. Have no issues regarding interior light as other reviewers have mentioned, I heat milk in it every day and can see clearly that it does not boil over. A great improvement on all my previous combination ovens. There is only two of us so it gets used all the time instead of heating up the big oven. This oven came with a wire shelf, a glass shelf and an enamel shelf, very useful. So far I am very impressed with this purchase. An added bonus buying from John Lewis is the extra 1 years guarantee. 03 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by May seem expensive, but actually terrific value I did pause when replacing a previous Pan combi with this one - but I'm happy to have made the choice. This has good capacity, the flat bed helps enormously, the programmes are good, and it does cook hot on convection. So adjust times/temps accordingly. It gets a lot of use from standard microwaving, the grill, and convection cooking as well as the combinations. No problems - so far. 09 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Be very carefull with this oven I bought this oven on the 29/12/2013. From the outset I noticed excessive condensation after each use. I have only used the microwave function - the other functions are just a back up for my main oven. The inner surfaces have rusted severely and I am currently awaiting the opinion of a Panasonic engineer. We will wait to see the outcome. The oven is actually quite good but the build quality is poor. Page 13 of the manual actually proves that Panasonic knows it is going to rust after you read it. It states you have to go into a full scale clean down after every use - probably while your meal goes cold. Download it and see for yourself before you buy. Though the operation of the oven is fine I have rated it one star as it will not actually last the 5 years guarantee period in my opinion 21 November 2014
