Rated 1 out of 5 by Not Happy ive had this Microwave for 2yrs,we only use it to heat up porridge and soups, its gone all RUSTY plus a lot of steam appears when heating ... hoping to go back to John Lewis for a full refund? 17 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value Easy to operate - no nonsense machine. This microwave is a replacement for the previous model, as we were so impressed with it. 17 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent service Delivered just 2 days after it was ordered . great purchase , small , compact well made " fit for the job " 16 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Compact, easy to use. Excellent value, compact and easy to use. Replaced a larger Panasonic which had given good service too. 16 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice compact microwave Didn't bother checking dimensions but this is a small microwave and the cooking plate is v close to the door so not much room if you use a food cover when cooking. It keeps moving back when I press the buttons so I recommend you have it by the wall where there are no sockets behind it. I only use it for reheating and it does that very well. If you want a microwave for basic use then this is for you. 10 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice neat size I bought this because it was said to be smallest microwave on market . It has been easy to use and clean. Looks very smart. I would still prefer an even smaller microwave if possible as I only use it for warming up things. 09 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by The perfect size for my needs I have always highly rated Panasonic as a manufacturer and have bought many of their products in the past. I have however been partially disappointed in this item. Whilst it is the perfect size for my needs and and is a competent microwave cooker the outer casing looks and feels somewhat flimsy. Indeed, when giving the oven a gentle wipe over for the very first time my dishcloth knocked off the underneath corner of the oven. My husband stuck it back on with super-glue and so far so good! 09 June 2015
