Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 165 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Could be better Bought it to replace another Panasonic which had died after 12 years or so. We wanted a larger turntable and a stainless steel interior. Unfortunately, the door doesn't quite open a full 90 degrees which means that the projecting catches tend to snag on a sleeve or oven glove when inserting a large dish. Furthermore, the oven must be completely level otherwise the door will close under its own weight (the previous one was in the same position and did not have this problem). To add insult to injury, the door impacts against the bottom edge of the case (which is not a good fit) when fully open and this acts as a spring, closing the door on the rebound. This means you have to put down whatever you are holding and open the door again more slowly. Irritating. 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4. 30 September 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too complicated Whilst this is, on paper a very good machine (it's a Which best buy), I returned ours because it was too annoying to use! Each time you want to cook something you have to press at least 3 different buttons, as there is no auto-start button. It's probably good for people who don't mind spending time using their microwave and all its functions but it's not good for people who just want to chuck something in the microwave to heat it quickly. 29 September 2015
