The convection function can be heated up to 240 degrees centigrade and circulates hot air around the oven to bake and roast your meal. A 1300 watt quartz grill makes for fast and efficient cooking across a wide range of foods while the 1000 watt microwave re-heats items thoroughly from the inside.

The large flatbed cavity provides greater cooking space which can save you time and money by cooking two dishes simultaneously. This combination microwave oven is also simple to clean with catalytic self-cleaning and fluoric coating on the walls and roof of the cavity, making it simple to wipe away grease and grime.

Three different operating methods give you greater control of the length of time you want your food in microwave. Simply swipe for changing large numbers, tap for precise control or press longer for sequential number changing.

Q & As

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by All singing and Dancing Microwave The second model is just what it says on the box. The first one did not produce steam so had to be rejected. No problems though. 19 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Talk to John Lewis first.... We have had Panasonic microwaves for longer than I care to remember. We are re-doing our kitchen and fancied a freestanding upgrade. We saw the non-steam version and liked it. Better door close than its competitors. Front opening. Probably a better fit in the corner of our kitchen. We then convinced ourselves to go for steam. The reviews put us off. So I rang John Lewis. They sell more Panasonic than any other make - so unsurprisingly, get more breakdowns for Panasonic. They then read through the list of complaints with me and we talked about them. I bought it knowing that I would be supported if I had problems. Standard delivery was very quick; just beating first class post with the invoice. It fits in the corner and looks even better than we thought it would. We've attempted steam and microwave and will do better once we learn... We also wonder why the door doesn't open when we press the place we have been pressing for years. Slider is fine. Press buttons are fine. I can still use a couple of presses for everyday stuff. The manual is detailed. And I have accepted that I need to keep referring to it.... We're pleased we bought it before the kitchen is fitted. We can hide the sockets behind it. And the trays that go inside will have first call on space in the new units. 01 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by lasted only six months before it broke down This is an average product in use. It does not reflect the price I paid for it. after 6 months the thermostat in the bottom of the oven failed and cracked the glass floor of the oven. After two and a half months at the service centre, waiting for it to be repaired because parts were not provided, Panasonic replaced it.. I am not impressed by Panasonic's after sales service. I would not buy another. Hopefully the replacement will last longer.! . 06 October 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not satisfactory I've had this microwave for some time now, I have given it a fair chance, but I am not satisfied. This replaced another much cheaper more satisfactory Panasonic microwave where all the auto programmes worked well Negatives .. just a few .. Slider for setting the time is fiddly and annoying. .. If left on auto sensor jacket potatoes can be cremated .. Steaming carrots ... the microwave was dripping with water inside and the product still raw, ended up tipping them into a saucepan to cook them through. .. Dimly lit inside so you can see what is going on. .. Cooked yorkshire pudding by the manual, poor result 21 August 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Disappointed, waste of money. I have only recently started using this product, as I have been having my kitchen re-fitted. I bought this as I only had room for a single oven, and thought it would give me an extra counter top oven. I wish I had not bothered ! The outside of the oven gets extremely hot when using the grill , and it doesn't give satisfactory results. I used the steaming function, following the instructions carefully, that was a waste of time. The microwave was running with water, the vegetables weren't cooked and again the oven was extremely hot to the touch. I haven't tried cooking a cake , I don't want to waste the ingredients , I just wish I had never bought this very expensive item. I have bought numerous items from John Lewis over the last 8 months ( would have bought a cooker and hob, but you couldn't deliver to my area , what's that all about ?) I have been very pleased with all of my purchases, except this one. I f only I could turn back the clock ! 12 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful machine! This is the third Panasonic combination microwave I have owned over the last twenty or so years and I have loved them all, but this one is definitely the best. I like the fact that there is no turntable, making it easier to clean. I like the extra width which enables me to use larger, rectangular dishes. The steam facility is very useful especially when making bread - it helps it to rise. It would benefit from some more lighting inside when cooking but all in all I love it. 23 April 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Panasonic NN-CS894S Comb Microwave Overall a very good item just one thing that troubles me I purchased this item at the beginning of March 2015 .The first time using it i followed the instructions for jacket potatoes from the instruction manual.(actually you cant go wrong when messages appear on the screen) ,manual states to use the wire shelf in a specific position this was adhered to . All OK i pressed start. Jacket potatoes were excellent. The plastic coating on the wire shelf( which according to the manual page 12 should not be removed) had curled up and revealed the metal. I have contacted Panasonic and sent photos,after much discussion and many phone calls (being put on hold) they are looking into this. As the metal is showing I am reluctant to use this wire shelf in Microwave mode therefore I am not using this models full potential John Lewis have been very helpful , but feel strongly that the Panasonic company has to sort this one out I am still waiting to hear from Panasonic to date 10 April 2012 10 April 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too early to make judgement Bought this last week, agree the interior light is awful, a cook needs to see their food!!shd have had 4 lights. A bit much considering the price of it.being a bloke it's gonna take me ages to work out what to do ! Not keen on the timer slider either , will be back on when I have tried the convection,grill and steamer! It really would be beneficial if shops had places where appliances could be tried out and demo'd. 05 April 2015
