Q & As


Panasonic NN-E281B Microwave Oven, Black 4.1 5 39 39
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
Panasonic microwave Nn-E281MM Easy to use good value for money also looks good a nice addition to my kitchen very pleased and have no hesitation in recommending microwave 15 June 2014
Great Product Easy to use I bought this for my Mum who is 85yrs old she didn't need anything complicated, she thinks its brilliant clearly laid out and easy for her to understand so its been a great hit with her I would recommend to anyone, who want just a microwave 27 May 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
Efficient and good looking Nice neat microwave, does all I ask from it!! Easy to clean and does not take up too much room in my small kitchen. 29 April 2014
Disappointed Purchased this item in September 2013 & have had to return it. Constant condensation left pool of water in the base and the coating at the bottom started peeling off. 03 April 2014
Perfect for small kitchen Very pleased with this purchase. Just the right size for a small kitchen but still takes a small dinner plate for reheating. Looks stylish and well made. Ordered online and it had arrived at Waitrose the very next day for me to pick up, very efficient. 25 February 2014
excessive water Bought this microwave a month ago,but have to say this is probably one of the worst I have purchased. The cooking is fine,just that every time you use it,no matter what you are cooking or reheating a large amount of water runs down the entire interior and collects under the plate. So we're having to mop this up after every use. I would expect some condensation and have experience of other models,but the Panasonic just has an inherent design fault. The reason I replaced my old microwave was due to rusting on the inside,I hasten to add I had the old one for many years,so to be expected,but the moisture issue I just can't see it out living my previous one. Being returned..good customer service when called to arrange returns. 08 February 2014
