The 2.2-cubic-foot unit with its 16-1/2-inch turntable perfectly cooks and evenly heats anything from breakfast foods and after-school snacks to dinnertime meals and appetizers when entertaining. Ideal for busy professionals and on-the-go families, the microwave oven provides quick and easy meal preparation while nicely accommodating surrounding decor.

Inverter Technology

Moving Beyond Just “Heating Things Up”

Many people just use their microwaves for making popcorn or warming up soup because most microwaves just have one temperature setting–high. Conventional microwave ovens might have a low-power setting, but this is achieved by “pulsing” the high-power setting on and off rather than by emitting a steady stream of low-powered energy.

Panasonic Inverter microwave oven The oven makes it easy to cook braised baby bok choy and other delicious side dishes.

Panasonic’s trailblazing Inverter technology delivers true, variable microwave power, which means even temperatures and consistent textures throughout the food being cooked. The consistent delivery of microwave energy allows delicate foods to simmer without the edges and surfaces overcooking, so foods have the look and taste you expect–without the wait.

The Inverter microwave oven perfects the art of cooking, taking microwave cooking to a whole new level. You’ll experience delicious food that better retains its color, nutrients, and flavor and that’s easier and faster to prepare. Oh, and you can still make great popcorn.

Single, Compact Power Supply

Furthermore, the Inverter power unit is smaller and lighter than conventional microwave circuitry (aka the heavy, enclosed side of the microwave), which allows for more interior space to fit that favorite casserole dish, without increasing the oven’s overall exterior dimensions. Weighing just 35-2/7 pounds, the oven’s roomy interior measures 18-1/2 inches long by 18-7/16 inches wide by 10-15/16 inches high, while its compact exterior measures 19-7/16 inches long by 23-7/8 inches wide by 14 inches high.

Additional Features

One-Touch Genius Sensor Cook and Reheat

With the touch of Panasonic’s Sensor Cooking button, the microwave takes the guesswork out of creating a great meal, by automatically setting power levels and adjusting cooking or defrosting time.

The sensor measures the amount of steam produced during cooking, and signals the microprocessor to calculate the remaining cooking time at the appropriate power level automatically.

Inverter Turbo Defrost

Panasonic evolved the Turbo Defrost feature, which allows you to defrost foods even faster than previous Panasonic Auto Defrost.

Panasonic Inverter Turbo Defrost technology is an advanced microwave sequencing system using the inverter continuous-power delivery method.

Menu Action Screen (multi-lingual)

The Menu Action Screen is like having a chef to assist you in the kitchen. It scrolls step-by-step cooking instructions across the display, in a choice of English, Spanish, or French.

Keep Warm Feature

A pulsing delivery of very low microwave power keeps food temperatures at a constant level–without overcooking. So, foods like stew, gravy, and desserts remain warm in the oven for up to 30 minutes after cooking.


Time-of-day clock and versatile timer provide exceptional convenience.

Quick Minute

The one-touch button allows you to set or add cooking time in 1-minute increments up to 10 minutes.

Function Key

The function key simplifies the programming of 10 useful, non-cooking functions. Just press the function key and the menu action screen will display easy-to-follow steps to complete the function.

Child-Safety Lock

For safety, the oven’s child safety lock prevents electronic operation (door still opens).

Good Housekeeping Seal

Awarded the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval and covered by a two-year limited warranty.

LOVE THIS MICROWAVE!!!!!! I did quite a lot of research before purchasing a new microwave. I knew what I wanted as far as wattage, size, etc. I’ve had this one for ten months now and I still love it! Very spacious for large dishes, defrosts better than any I’ve had(doesn’t “cook” the food). Haven’t had one single problem. Would definitely recommend this item!

If you must buy this, you must also buy a 2 year replacement plan. Purchased August 20, 2006. Failed within 19 months (March 2008). It makes an electrical arcing sound (similar to a Jacob’s Ladder, often seen in cheesy Sci-Fi flicks) and emits a burning smell from an unknown source, and shuts itself off before even 10 seconds pass of cooking on high. No foreign metal has been placed inside, instructions have been followed to the letter, and very little shaking has been done to it.Putting the sensor reheat/sensor cook (a must) together with the good reviews at the time, I bought it.Unfortunately it seems not enough work was put into solidifying the electrical system, due to what essentially was a fire in my case, and I suspect exactly the same for reviewer VLG “VLG” (Enid, OK).Due to my experience, VLG’s review (fire), John H. Stoufer’s review (died), and Deb’s comment on said review (2 in less than 3 years), I would advise AGAINST purchasing this model, as all units seem built to fail within 2 years.

Lousy microwave We bought this microwave at Bestbuy after doing some research into what’s a dependable model. We paid $165 on June 30. Today is Aug 12, and the microwave broke already! We don’t abuse our appliances and are basically gentle users. Today I tried to heat up some frozen bread for 10 sec, and it goes on for 1 sec and turns off by itself. The turntable no longer turns. I tried all the other features, and the same thing happens – it turns on for a sec or 2, and then lights out. What a piece of junk! How can they sell an appliance that lasts less than 6 weeks??????????
