Q & As

Panasonic NN-E281M Microwave Oven, Silver 4.2 5 51 51
Glutton for punishment! First of all, I didn't buy this from JL. First mistake. When it arrived, the light didn't work, but these things happen. The replacement lasted about 8 months before the motor started making a knocking sound. This was repaired. 1 month after the 12 month guarantee ran out, I noticed that the lining inside had started to bubble and eventually, started to peel off. (See other reviews#. To their credit, Panasonic gave me my money back!! On the plus side, I like the microwave. Its well designed and meets my needs. Heres where the 'glutton' bit comes in: Ive just bought another one, this time from John Lewis. Its the NN271WM #white instead of silver#. With a 2 year guarantee, I reckon that if anything goes wrong, it should happen within the first year or two. 25 August 2014
Disappointed I purchased this due to its neat size for a small kitchen. Was initially very pleased but after a couple of months it started cutting out during cooking. It got so bad that it would stop every few seconds. I also agree with another reviewer about the amount of steam that builds up inside while cooking. Thankfully I bought this through John Lewis whose customer service was faultless and arranged for a replacement with no fuss. 21 August 2014
Not built to last Good microwave until recently - inside has completely deteriorated, paint peeled off and it no longer cooks properly. Sadly, when I purchased it in September 2012 there was only a one year guarantee. I would have expected it to last better than this as it is only occasionally used. Not worth it. 07 August 2014
Excellent product Very pleased with the microwave oven. Good size interior and well lit when door open. Very easy to select various power options and cooking times. Useful instruction booklet. Delivered to my local Waitrose when collection was trouble free. 23 July 2014
Panasonic Microwave Overall not a bad basic microwave although the push button to open the door sometimes fails so I can see an issue in the future. Glad there's a two year guarantee. 14 July 2014

second microwave bought Bought this product five months ago for ourselves really easy to use clock keeps geeat time. My parents needed a new microwave we recomended this machineand they love it, so easy to use. 08 July 2014
A very nice microwave We like this microwave. It has a good range of functions/settings, with clear easy to follow instructions that make it easy to use. It's quite compact and the silver and black finish goes well with the brushed stainless steel and black of our other appliances. Good value for money too. 24 June 2014
