Panasonic NN-ST479S Sensor Microwave Oven, Stainless Steel

Product information

The family size Panasonic NN-ST479S microwave oven, in stainless steel, features 15 programmes, 8 with an automatic sensor so there's no need to enter the weight.

The NN-ST479S also has built-in inverter technology that provides more even and constant cooking. This technology also reduces the weight of ovens, making for easier cleaning.

This model comes with auto weight reheat, auto weight cook, turbo reheat, chaos defrost, all of which take the guesswork out of timing. Includes jog control and distinctive double pop-out control panel.

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 4.3 out of 5 by 177 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fab-U-Lous! Bought this to replace a Bejam microwave which has a unique and thus unfortunately irreplaceable part. No problems at all, really easy to use if you want to properly cook with a microwave oven instead of just bung the instant meal in and expect it to be perfect. Please note though-no air vents on top like in the picture so no real need for clearance on top-my husband was made to build a shelf for his kitchen midi system which happily sat on the old microwave and probably would have on this one! 18 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best of my three More compact than my last Panasonic microwave but no loss of internal size. So easy to use & clean.So much more powerful,had my last one for 16 years so hop this one lasts as long. 17 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good microwave but overcooks on 'sensor' settings This is a nice microwave, good sized and with useful features. Only downside we have found is a tendency to overcook frozen veg on the sensor setting, even when we use the adjustment to reduce cooking time 17 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Purchase Enough room inside for a big dinner plate, simple to operate, more or less uniform heating but, if the oven door opened a little wider it would be a perfect microwave oven for me. 15 November 2015

Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible product We purchased this microwave thinking it would last a while and it stopped working 5 days after the 2 year warrenty expired. John Lewis directed us towards Panasonic and Panasonic took no responsibility. 26 October 2015
