Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 109 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by describes accurately the product does exactly what it says. simple to operate. very accurate cooking times and levels. 01 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent producr This was bought as a replacement to the older model we inherited when we moved into the house 2 years ago. Both this old model and the newer one we left at our old house were excellent models, completing all tasks efficiently and accurately. We therefore had no hesitation in ordering this new one and have not been disappointed with its quality both in finish and efficiency. Would highly recommend both the product and John Lewis for their service. 21 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cooks very quickly Good microwave,cooks quickly. Haven't used other cooking methods yet. Only criticism is that it's almost identical to the previous model but is lighter and has a tendency to slide backwards when pressing button to open door. 18 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointing We bought this model from John Lewis in August 2012. Today, two and a half years on, the fan has broken leaving the microwave to overheat and is now unusable. I expected a longer life from Panasonic, as our previous microwave from the same manufacturer, lasted 7 years. I have also checked out the Which? website as they recommended this model - over the last two years since our purchase, the website has since reviewed its review (!) of this model and demoted it to a mere 1 star. Very disappointing all round. 03 February 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
