Q & As

Panasonic NN-ST479S Sensor Microwave Oven, Stainless Steel 4.3 5 111 111
Very impressed with this model I have owned three Panasonic microwaves. The first (and most expensive) lasted 8 years, the least expensive, less than 3 months. Having decided you get what you pay for I chose this model. For me, it ticks all the right boxes: solidly made and well designed, stainless steel interior (easy cleaning) and the large turntable sits securely. Part of the interior walls are concave and therefore easy to remove hot items. I am really delighted with this model and love the new 'sensor' choices. No more trying to calculate for fresh or frozen vegetables - you put them in press sensor button - choose fresh or frozen - and that's it. I look forward to trying all the other sensor programmes. I also like the Panasonic feature in the higher end models that has the fan running after you've finished cooking as it dries out moisture left in the interior. I think this model is well worth the price and I would not hesitate to recommend it. 12 October 2014
Excellent! Great microwave, really good size interior and simple to use 16 September 2014
Does what it says on the tin This is an excellent value good all round performer. But it does mark easily, as other reviewers have commented, so house proud cooks need to keep a cloth handy to wipe off the finger marks. 10 September 2014
Panasonic microwave NN-ST479S This is our second Panasonic microwave from John Lewis. The first being the previous model from Panasonic. The previous model was far better built, more solid in all respects. The door on our new model is very flimsy. The case is the same. Easy to use, I think not the older model felt solid to use and had that built to last feel, I only hope this one will last as long as the old model! 02 September 2014
Powerful & Efficient Panasonic NN-ST 479S Microwave Very easy to operate. Beautiful design and well made. Shiny stainless steel exterior & interior with button controls. No touch control. It leaves fingerprints on the exterior BUT when I rub those marks with a clean damp sponge cloth, and then wipe it with a clean dry kitchen paper, marks disappear. The light inside is so bright and the shiny interior reflects the light making it even brighter, so I can see everything happening inside very clearly. It cooks evenly unlike Panasonic NN-ST 462 that I had to return after the digital display went blank after 6 weeks. External width 51cm (20”) is just perfect for my kitchen worktop. Inside measurements of W35.6cm x H22cm x D34.3cm (14” x 8.5” x 13.5”) makes it family size. Turntable of 34cm (13.4”) diameter easily takes a full size dinner plate. The only downside is that the writing on the panel near the buttons is so tiny (2-3mm in height) and I cannot read them without wearing my reading glasses. The noise that it makes when it’s working doesn’t bother me. After all, we can’t have everything our way. The noise that you hear after it stopped working is the extractor fan taking all the moisture & the food smell out of the oven, and also it’s a cooling down process. I am quite happy with that function. Thank you Panasonic and thank you John Lewis. 25 August 2014
Great Microwave I bought this as it is the top 'Which' rated microwave only. This replaced an aging Panasonic which had provided excellent service but was looking a bit tired. The contols and features were almost identical and we are very pleased with the performance. The only new feature is the sensor cooking, we have found this to work suprisingly well and are using it more often. We just wanted a straight microwave. This one I can highly recommend. 16 August 2014
