Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 155 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 microwave Nice.simple to a good price.Family size microwave. 28 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased with purchase Large interior space without being too big outside. Looks smart. Easy to see the good inside while its cooking. 28 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by New Microwave This model is similar to my old Panasonic microwave that went bang after 13 years. My only gripes are by replacing my old white model with a stainless steel one I didn't realise it would be more difficult to read the function buttons. The writing is in a smaller font and the words blend into the metal background so I have to put my glasses on to read them. Secondly, the instruction manual has 4 pages of illegible print and they are the 4 most important pages in the book. I rang Panasonic for a replacement or even just the 4 pages. They told me to download the relevant info. off their website, but as I pointed out not everyone has Internet access. However, overall I'm pleased with the performance of the microwave, and it blends well with the rest of the stainless steel appliances in my kitchen. Also, being able to buy via the Click & Collect option was brilliant now I no longer live near a John Lewis store. 28 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Value Quality Product & Quality Service This latest microwave product by Panasonic offers fully automated features - sensor cooking with no need to weigh food particularly useful. Good quality construction promises long life and reliability expected of this brand. The John Lewis free extended warranty also welcome. Unlike previous versions, you now have to select a power option before setting time then start to commence cooking - one more button press for a quick heat operation. 28 July 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Panasonic NN-ST479S Had this model previously for over 4 years before the light went, keen to replace it as it worked well, looked good, and fitted in the space I have. But had several dodgy microwaves [2 wobbled, 2 had door that was not flush with face, 1 blew as soon as I plugged it in, and 1 was noisy]. Maybe mad to persist but on the 7th attempt I now have the microwave I want, no problems. John Lewis refunded me £30 in recognition of the trouble. 21 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great value and simple to use This replaced our old Panasonic,which we had for about 15 years. Looks great and is simple to use. The only downside is it shows every finger mark. 15 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Second time around We had the same model before and it is still rated highly by Which so bought it again. However the problem with the first one was that the door ceased to work thus rendering the whole thing useless. Frustrating really as it was out side its guarantee. 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by does what it says it will do! Great product, probably the updated model of my previous Panasonic microwave oven which failed after many years of good service, but on this occasion I chose the product without the grill facility as I didn't use that in all the time that I owned it! I would recommend this product to anyone searching for a new microwave oven. 14 July 2015
