Panasonic NN-E281M Microwave Oven, Silver

Product information

Panasonic's NN-E281MMBPQ microwave oven is simple and easy to use with a choice of 9 auto-programmes.

Easy to use
Simply place you food on the round glass tray, enter the weight via the digital touch controls and let the Auto Weight programme cook your food to perfection.

With 5 power levels and a choice of 9 auto-programmes, you have plenty of cooking options with this microwave.

The interior is made using easy-to-clean acrylic liners, so you can simply wipe clean after use for effortless maintenance. A child lock prevents programmes from being changed and protects little fingers from harm, giving you extra peace of mind in your home.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by good for our requirements This is an easy to use product but if someone doesn't cancel the time remaining it stays lit up and is easy to confuse with the clock time as they share the same space. 17 November 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fill's all needs a good silver that will blend into most kitchen colour schemes, clear and easy to use control panel and reasonable low level of sound when oven is working. Good value for a relative low cost. As always with John Lewis the delivery was quick and efficient. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it says on the box Attractive finish, good compact size, ( I have limited space ). Only thing I miss is a Express one minute button which I found useful on my last machine. Worth noting the only air vent is on the left hand side. 11 November 2015
