Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 102 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Silver Microwave Had to purchase another microwave our old one went rusty inside. This one is the updated version but in silver, easy to use for what we want it for. Pleased with the purchase and good value and fast delivery. 18 August 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dangerous and not built to last Bought this microwave oven about 3 years ago. Found that it got rusty very quickly. Also just developed a VERY dangerous fault. It has started to spontaneously turn on when the door is open! Would not buy another. JL should feedback to the manufacturer and pull from their shelves. I could have been very seriously burned. 16 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great little microwave I wanted a small and simple microwave and this fits the bill. It is a little annoying that the power has to be selected each time, even for full power, but that is a minor drawback. Be aware too that it is small so large items of cookware will not fit in but, for the small kitchen, this is ideal. I am very pleased with its appearance, simplicity and performance. 15 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value Reasonably priced basic microwave. Small but takes dinner plate. Looks good. 12 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfectly fine product Happy with this product. Looks nice, is compact in my small kitchen and is simple to use. Fine for my requirements. 11 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by I have a reservation with this product This is the second one of these microwaves I've purchased from Waitrose and John Lewis.The first one was less than 2 years old when all the paint started corroding inside and it became unusable. I only had a 1 year guarantee with Waitrose at the time, but I really liked the microwave so purchased the same model online from John Lewis with the 2 year guarantee hoping that the problem had been solved. This was in July 2015. I'm hoping that the problem won't occur but at least I have a 2 year guarantee if it does. I do hope you take serious note of this review as I was very cross to have to throw out the first microwave because of the problem. I expect a microwave to last in good condition for a number of years. 11 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice microwave but time not support 24H format All good, but the small pitty thing is it's digital clock does not support 24H format, which looks a little bit odd in the night time. 04 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Panasonic Microwave I a.m delighted with this purchase. It was dispatched very quickly and it is very easy to use. I can thoroughly recommend it 04 August 2015
