Q & As

Panasonic NN-E281B Microwave Oven, Black 4.1 5 43 43
Small & neat Good looking small microwave, unfortunatly have to return the first one due to the casing getting hot and heavy condensation in the interior. Replacement has no problem with the condensation but the exterior casing still get quite hot when used for long periods (6-7mins) Hoping this is only a common thing with the microwave. 08 September 2014
Great Microwave Its great value microwave. Ample power. Many functions, but looks pretty good. Wanted a black, smaller but powerful microwave and this is it. Happy with the purchase. 29 July 2014
Good microwave I have always had a Panasonic microwave other than a brief while when we had an Aldi microwave. We mostly use it for reheating food and occasionally for defrosting - and Panasonic microwaves manage both quite well. Have been using this one for almost six months and happy with it. The child safety mechanisms are quite handy too with young kids at home. 25 July 2014
Ideal Microwave I bought this microwave to replace a Panasonic that had been used everyday for the last 5 years. They have improved the turntable mechanisem from the last one. It is an ideal size and doesn't take up too much room on the worktop, yet it will take a good sized casserole dish. Nice looking too. 15 July 2014
Great value for money Slim, compact, great value for the money. Perfect for my use. I had read other comments online before buying that the microwave is full of condensation after use. I have not experienced this, only a slight condensation on the glass after a long cook. NOT a pool of water. You can fit a normal sized dinner plate inside, however anything larger does not fit. I would recommend this product. 10 July 2014

Don't buys this Product!!! Very poor product, constant condensation caused peeling of coating inside microwave and around doors. Finally, the metal is exposed and then rust. Just terrible. 15 May 2014
