    large interior, easy to use and the sensory reheat is a dream (just not for use on liquids) – food only
    it cooks till it senses steam then stops – love it

    1250watts seems to be the most powerful countertop model i could find – the 1200 w takes a full 30sec more to reheat coffee

    It’s been 5 years and our microwave is showings its age, most noticeable are the rust bubbles/ bulges along the front bottom edge, they make uncomfortable, i worry about leakage. . The turntable seems to turn a tad slower than in the past. So I decided I would check out what the latest and greatest microwaves are in 2023. I knew the size I wanted (2.2 cubic for countertop I’m stainless steel). So I’m reading along and this one catches my eye. Fair price, ooo all the specs I want! Sounds promising! I read a little bit more and then I started to giggle. I’m reading about MY microwave- that I purchased on the *exact same date* (June 6th) in 2018. What are the odds? I hadn’t noticed the “you purchased this” banner- its late and I was trying to get thru the specs quickly.

    It’s been a great workhorse for 5 years. Still works great, I’m just concerned about those rust bubbles on the bottom edge possibly affecting the seal. I don’t have one of those testing tools (and with my autistic kids, that’s probably a good thing- they’d obsess and start checking it 5 times a day). So I’m not totally convinced if I should get a new one or not. But I can tell you this model has been great for the last 5 years (and we tend to be hard on appliances, esp microwaves). I esp like that I can program one thing with 2 different times & temps and it smoothly segues through the change. Or that I can set a delayed start and 2 times! I rarely use the sensor but it’s nice to have. It defrosts well if you’re careful and don’t push your luck. (Push your luck and the edges start cooking while the center is frozen). We don’t actually cook much in it anymore, other than streaming vegetables, as we were recently given a toaster oven/ bake/ broil/ air fry unit. It’s very low profile and actually sits right under the microwave. The microwave does mostly thawing, reheating and steaming chores. It’s still the best way to stream veggies. And I’ve perfected reheating homemade bearnaise sauce in it (not easy to reheat any egg based sauce, they tend to curdle). My kids have perfected Ramen in a microwave safe measuring cup, vs boiling water on the stove.

    So if you’re looking for a new microwave, this little workhorse has served us well for 5 years. Heck, Amazon’s price is only about $3 more than in 2018! You really can’t go wrong with this one. Not sure if we’re even going to buy right now but it’s served us so well it will Def. Be on the short list for replacing itself 🙂

    El horno se ve y funciona muy bien. Lo que mi esposa buscaba es el tamaño. Otra ventaja el acero inoxidable.
    Lo probamos y funciona bien. Aún no lo necesitamos para reemplazar el que usamos diario.

    I did a LOT of research on many microwaves before I settled on this Panasonic. Before beginning this process, I really didn’t recognize Panasonic as a leading name in kitchen appliances so I was kind of skeptical at first. Afterward, I realized that they were a front-runner when it came to microwaves. Man, I am really, really pleased with my purchase here. This microwave has performed stellar and I’m closing in on one year’s use! I love everything about this microwave but there’s one feature in particular that takes this appliance over the top for me. The ‘Genius Sensing’ technology that’s built into this microwave that allows that ‘Sensor Reheat’ button to work so flawlessly is a game-changer! I mean that. This feature allows me to reheat anything that’s been already cooked to perfection. No cold spots, no overheated dried-out food, none of that! Food comes out perfectly reheated every time! In comparison, at work we use a Toshiba EM131A5C-BS. Supposedly has the same type of ‘Sensor Reheat’ button. I can honestly tell you that it does NOT work as dependable, as consistent, or as thorough as my Panasonic at home. Besides everything else, this thing looks fabulous in our new kitchen. The space inside is HUGE! I think I could cook a whole turkey in this thing! And the cleanup is so easy. Overall, I’m smiling from ear to ear with this purchase. If you can find one that’s still out there, BUY IT QUICK!!

    We’ve only had this for a month, but we’re pleased this works very well. The “inverter” feature is terrific, because it cooks the food more evenly. That makes thawing frozen food thaw faster while getting deeper into the food to warm up. That means you have to tend it less, though it still won’t three cups of frozen pasta without you having to turn it over once. Other examples of the even cooking:
    – My morning oatmeal cooks well without boiling over at the outer edges
    – White and sweet potatoes cook all the way through on the pre-programmed setting, instead of just cooking the top (with a hard underside).
    – Rewarming food warms it very evenly

    – The +30 seconds feature lets you quickly warm something, though you also have to hit Start initially. (Our old unit would start immediately once you hit +30.)
    – You can hit +30 seconds while your food is cooking, to extend the time.
    – The inverter really helps it cook and thaw more evenly, so less turning of food.
    – Sensor cooking (sensing steam from your food) works very well.
    – The interior light is brighter than our old unit, making it easier to watch the cooking.
    – *Very big* interior
    – The display is bright and easy to read from a distance
    – If you don’t set the clock, the display doesn’t light up your kitchen at night
    – If you lower the power level to cook slower (cream soups or things that need delicate warming), the microwave doesn’t cycle on/off constantly. It gives a medium-loud hum throughout.
    – We like that the beep isn’t so loud when it finishes, though we may miss it finish because of that, say if the TV is loud. You may not appreciate that so much
    – You can disable having the buttons beep when you press them.

    Minor Cons:
    – I wish the buttons were easier to read in a dark kitchen
    – While the preprogrammed cooking cycles (e.g. 1=Oatmeal, 8=frozen dinner, etc) are printed inside the microwave door, they hard to read without an external light.
    – We keep burning loose popcorn (because this heats much faster?). We still have to watch it and listen for the popping.

    I’d probably buy this unit again, or Panasonic’s smaller unit with “cyclonic inverter”, which they say heats even more evenly.

    1. The brushed steel looks great, and is easier to clean than just a stainless steel finish.
    2. The large size will easily fit a chicken, or a 5kg. turkey.
    3. Its 1250 watts microwave cooks much, much faster than a 1000 watt microwave. For example I eat a lot of frozen food entrees, and in the 1000 watt a meal would be about 6-9 minutes, these dishes now take no more than four minutes.

    Some concerns:
    it is not immediately apparent how to set the cooking time. Once you recognise the dial, it is so easy to set the time.
    It is complicated process to select power levels.
    Although it is a genius microwave, that will reheat by sensors, it is also not a an easy, or straightforward process.
    You will actually, NEED to read the manual.
