Product information

Panasonic's NN-E281B microwave oven is simple and easy to use with a choice of 9 auto-programmes.

Easy to use
Simply place you food on the round glass tray, enter the weight via the digital touch controls and let the Auto Weight programme cook your food to perfection.

With 5 power levels and a choice of 9 auto-programmes, you have plenty of cooking options with this microwave.

The interior is made using easy-to-clean acrylic liners, so you can simply wipe clean after use for effortless maintenance. A child lock prevents programmes from being changed and protects little fingers from harm, giving you extra peace of mind in your home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good product I just use the timer to warm up food. it is very good makes its job. Look very expensive. As all the products in John Lewis is quality. 17 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice little Microwave Replaced a similar microwave from Panasonic. Found we did not use the grill on the last one so this time got just microwave. Easy to use but does emit a lot of steam when cooking so have to leave the door open after use for a short time. Other reviews suggest possibility of rust later so will keep a check. 17 November 2015
