I've had this microwave after my last one got destroyed, and it's had absolutely no problems to date.
It looks amazing on the work surface in my kitchen, taking up about the same room as the average microwave, nothing too large or small, it has a chrome top and sides, which you can't see in the picture and the clear panel at the front is ideal for seeing if something is boiling over or frothing. The buttons are clearly labeled with some even having tiny images on them to sum up what they do, I think this is essential, someone who has never seen this before would be able to use it. You simply open it using the push button like thing on the bottom right corner of the front, put your food or drink in there, push shut, set whether you wish to cook on high medium low defrost or any of the other settings, then use the option of time to choose how long, using the buttons varying from 1 second up to an hour, this made it quick to choose the correct time. then simply click start.
The on screen display shows all the options you're choosing such as heat or time and once start has been pressed it changes to a nice little count down of the time remaining, this is useful for when the food/drink needs stirring half way through ect.
This microwave gives off a humming noise expected from the average microwave, not silent or loud. Once it has finished its microwaving it gives off a few beeps which could be heard from the next room to inform you that it's finished doing what you told it too.
We have had this microwave oven for aound 5 years now and it has been great. No problems at all. We decided on a combination microwave oven as with there being only 2 of us we could use the smaller oven facility rather than the larger built in oven.
This Panasonic microwave oven is really stylish in stainless steel and isn't too small like some microwave ovens. It is a great brand and has good support if you need it via the telephone or online.
It comes well packaged and is easy to set up wth the instructions. It isn't over run with features making it difficult to use either which was great. There are however enough functions to make it a useful piece of kit.
You can use this microwave oven to obviously microwave or oven food but you can also defrost which has been really useful for us.
The microwave is quick to heat up food and the oven also gets warm quick making it more energy efficient than using the larger built in oven we have. The buttons on the front are easy to see and the electronic display allows you to programme it to do what you need. You can press for seconds, minutes, 10 minutes etc. making it quick to set the time you need.
OverallI think this is a great choice of microwave oven and would be useful to most couples and families alike. It can be bought for around £200 online which i dont think isa bad price. Shop roundfor the best deal.
