Q & As

Panasonic NN-CT579SBPQ Slimline Combination Microwave, Stainless Steel 4.3 5 98 98
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
Great microwave - easy to clean and powerful Bought this to replace our previous Panasonic microwave, the similar to this without the combination, that finally stopped working after 7 years. All stainless model means it looks good inside and out and easy to clean. Very powerful so need to take care that you don't over cook stuff. Did develop a fault within 6 months so had to have it sent away for repair. Done under warranty but 3rd party repairer took over 6 weeks to return it so ended up having to buy a cheap Tesco model to manage in the meantime. Now it is back and all is good again. 28 September 2014
Panasonic NN-CT579SBPQ Really pleased with this purchase so far. Cooked baked potatoes using combj setting and they came out great. Had one or two accidents, milk boiling over by forgetting how much more powerful it is compared to our old one but that is our fault. Seems well built compared to many others we looked at around a similar price and we are pleased with our choice. 17 September 2014
Much more than a microwave I've been using the combination oven for a couple of months now and I am still very impressed at the results. From a whole chicken and roast potatoes to a pizza, it can cook it. The user guide is'nt the clearest but then I haven't studied ever detail to fully understand it, however it's still cooking what I want fast and remaining succulent. Buy one. 03 September 2014
Great microwave Perfect all in one microwave. Was also rated in Which magazine. Can't fault it and you have the JL warranty which is added piece of mind :) 12 August 2014
Fantastic Combi Microwave Been using this product for a few weeks and we are more impressed than ever. Frozen food not frazzled, best baked potatoes without an open fire. Bread defrosted without drying out. One impressive machine, but read the manual to get the best out of it..One item of note though, after using the combi grill the unit gets very hot so definitely make sure nothing is placed on top... 28 July 2014
Could do better We've had this for several years, our main cooker is a Rayburn and for a quick meal we have used this a lot rather than waiting for the Rayburn to warm up. The overall design of the Panasonic is little changed from our 20+ year old microwave-only version which is still working fine. However the stainless steel finish on the door release button rapidly started to wear off. In terms of design, although the dimensions are quite compact (but note the need for ventilation space around it), being a turntable model immediately reduces the usable internal volume. This is OK for most microwave meals, but in grill mode you are limited to the area of the circular metal tray. The rack which this sits on has nothing to locate the legs centrally, so you have to guess where it goes to avoid the tray scraping the sides as it rotates. Unfortunately the grill itself doesn't grill evenly, so food near the outside of the tray is left undercooked unless you keep moving it around. Conversely, in oven mode the grill stays on and tends to burn food such as chicken legs before they are cooked through. We have recently replaced the Panasonic with a built-in equivalent from another maker which cooks much more evenly. In summary, this oven gives the impression that Panasonic are a bit complacent, and I would recommend spending a bit more on something without so many limitations. 25 July 2014
