Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 212 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My 3rd Panasonic Microwave oven I definitely recommend this oven. Unexpectedly (like my first one) it is an autocook sensor model. It is so nice once again to be able to place something on the turntable, press the button to tell the oven what it is, and just leave it to cook. Perfect results every time. 06 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Panasonic Microwave I had my last one for well over 10 years and it was virtually identical to this one. No complaints at all. Great size, even cooking and simple to use. My last one suffered a turntable motor failure. I'd recommend this microwave 05 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent microwave Cant fault it as a replacement for a broken old thing. 02 February 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by PANASONIC NN-ST479S MICROWAVE OVEN We had a similar model to this which lasted for a reasonable period but died suddenly. Being familiar with the controls which are very similar we bought this model. After switch on we defrosted some meat for 10 minutes and then tried to cook some vegetable - the oven died completely after only 30 seconds with no display. Top of the oven started to heat up ominously. Switched off the unit and let it cool for 30 minutes. Switched on again - totally dead with no display. Top of the oven started to heat up which confirmed that the supply was on (no blown fuse or faulty socket). Obviously the Inverter power supply was faulty which Is similar to the fault in the old oven. UNRELIABLE PRODUCT. 02 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Panasonic NN-ST479 S Microwave Oven Definitely worth buying this excellent product. It works well and cooks to a high standard even after frequent use. 02 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A necessary addition to the kitchen Excellent. Very pleased with the appliance both with looks and functions. 27 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it says on the tin - and more! We thought that we didn't a flashy microwave - but we were wrong! This model does so much more.... but it also does it better! It's like a breath of fresh air - riding a RR instead of a smaller car. Cleaning is easy with the stainless steel interior too. 26 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Stylish microwave Good looking, stylish and easy to operate. One drawback is it shows fingerprints on the stainless steel, although these wipe off with the correct cloth. 26 January 2016
