Q & As

Panasonic NN-CT579SBPQ Slimline Combination Microwave, Stainless Steel 4.2 5 105 105
compact combi I have owned 2 previous combis which gave me great service over 20+ odd years but wanted something a little more compact. The compromise is a less efficient convection function as it reaches a top temperature of only 220o as opposed to 250o on my previous models; it also affects results obtained on combi mode so the jury is still out as to whether the external compactness was worth the sacrifice on cooking times and taste. Luckily, I retained the lower shelf from my previous oven, the one provided with this model is too high for most dishes and food tends to burn before it's cooked through. The oven slides on the work surface when you press the button to open the door. Bit noisy too. So overall, it's an ok product but probably not the best. 21 January 2015
Microwave oven We are delighted with the performance of the oven but have some difficulty in reading the symbols against the silver surround - otherwise very pleased. 20 December 2014
Dissapointing model This was to replace a previous Panasonic Combination Microwave, which I had loved (the bigger model). This model is fine for Grilling and microwaving (not sure yet about combination) but using convection only, it is useless. Most of the heat comes from the grill, which means everything gets burnt before it is properly cooked. It doesn't even take up less space, because of the 40cm+ spacing required to the right hand side for ventilation. 16 December 2014
excellent product! very well designed microwave, compact yet can easily fit in a full size dinner plate. very flexible and easy to use auto menu as well, definitely recommend. 16 December 2014
Convection Useless and Noisy I bought this microwave yesterday as my old Panasonic died. It has all the old functions except turbo bake but I could live with that. The microwave function works just fine but using the grill or the convection oven, forget it. I have just tried to bake a cake in it on the convection setting and I only left it in for 25 minutes of the total time of 50 minutes as I could no longer stand the smell of burning!!! The cake was black on top and raw inside. There is a serious problem with this model. I now understand that Panasonic have removed the 'oven' element at the back and now rely upon the grill element at the top, (this will never work) in order to save approximately 7cm in depth and be able to call it a 'slimline'. Also, when used on the combi or convection setting it is very noisy, makes me think of an anchor chain being hauled in. I would have lived with that if it had performed well as a convection oven. The old Panasonic was brilliant and gave me 14 years faithful service, having been used every day from defrosting to baking cakes and bread. I shall now be looking for an alternative make as replacement. John Lewis have agreed to a full refund in the morning. 09 December 2014
Really pleased with this combination microwave This has been a really useful addition to our new kitchen and have been very pleased with the results so far. We really like having the flexibility of using it as a Microwave or a Convection oven or even a combination of both! 09 December 2014
Serious fault with this model I have had a Panasonic microwave for many years and was very happy with the performance. I gave my old microwave away to a friend after deciding to get a new microwave. I purchased this model in Nov 2013 (I chose this model since it is the same as my previous model but includes a convection oven). The first microwave delivered was returned since we noticed that the hard plastic on the inside of the door had started to melt. The replacement model seem fine until yesterday, just under a year after we purchased it, when a large piece of the hard plastic on the inside of the door had melted onto the inside frame of the microwave (in the exact same place as we had noted on the first faulty model delivered). There is clearly a serious problem with this model. What is concerning is that this could affect the integrity of the door which protects the user for being exposed to a microwaves. Panasonic should take note and sort out this problem. 28 November 2014
Does what it says This was a replacement for one we had for over 15 years, the only drawback is you only get one wire rack. With the previous one we had low and high level wire racks which was very handy. 04 November 2014
