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’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 over 31 pounds, the oven’s roomy interior measures 18-1/2 inches long by 16-7/16 inches wide by 9 inches high, while its compact exterior measures 19-7/16 inches long by 21-7/8 inches wide by 12 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.

Control Panel with Blue LED Dial Ring/Blue Backlit Display

The silver button control panel, illuminated neon-blue spin dial, and generous six-digit expanded backlit display provide a high-end look and a practically effortless navigation experience in the kitchen.

Child-Safety Lock

For safety, the oven’s child safety lock prevents electronic operation (door still opens). Press Start three times to lock (“Lock” will display); press Stop/Reset three times to cancel.

Good Housekeeping Seal

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

Chris Johnson says:

A Good Microwave Oven I installed this microwave oven as a built in using a .I purchased this oven because I like its looks, it can be installed as a built-in and its performance is rated very highly by Consumer Reports.I am happy with the cooking performance of this oven. Items cooked in it are heated evenly. I have found the sensor cooking mode to work well.Minor annoyances include that the door open button requires a pretty firm push to open the door and the control knob can’t be used to select a power level. The control knob can be used to dial in the cooking time, or if you push the sensor cook button, the dial can then be used to select a sensor cooking mode. However, the power level is selected by repeated pushing of the power level button. If you want 50% power, you need to…

Big, a little weird, excellent performance Bought it over one other, similar microwave, mainly to see if the inverter technology really works. It does. It’s a great leap forward for humankind.The knob is retro! Which in this case means solid. I did not buy it for the look, but it’s funny when visitors think maybe it’s a TV/microwave combo. It’s solid like a 60s TV. And big.This thing is big. I wanted big, so it’s ok, but you might take out your tape measure to help conceptualize just how big it is. I am thrilled with how much I can cook or heat up in 1 batch–1 Correlle Winter Frost dinner plate plus 1 CWF bowl both fit on the turntable, and there’s still room to stick some 1-4 oz. containers.The stainless is nice. I have a mostly white kitchen, and white plastic on appliances turns yellowish over time, so I am glad there was a stainless option.It gets the job done, whatever the job is. Buy it without fear.Then double-check that Amazon is using the correct shipping…
