Power This Panasonic microwave oven can generate up to 1250 watts of cooking energy. This is more powerful than average with a higher level of heating watts.
Magnetron Warranty The magnetron warranty is good for 5 years. Compared to other manufacturers, this microwave has a magnetron limited warranty with about average duration.
User Ratings Rated 4.3 of 5 stars by 49 users from retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Sears, and others. Compared to other user reviews of new microwaves, this appliance is rated higher than average.
Bake / Roast Standard microwave without convection heating. You can't brown, bake, or roast dishes and meats like a regular oven.
Grill / Broil Standard microwave without a grilling or broiling element. You can't grill or broil meats such as steaks, hamburgers, or chicken wings.
Staged Cooking Can be programmed with a series of power levels and heating times that you perform frequently. Allows you to automatically cook your favorite dishes without constant monitoring so you can perform other tasks.
Sensor Cooking Uses sensors to monitor humidity levels and automatically determines the appropriate power and time required to cook, reheat, or defrost selected foods.
Even Cooking Cooks dishes evenly using special inverter or similar technology. The consistent delivery of microwaves allows the dish to uniformly cook without the surface or edges overcooking. No more burnt edges or underdone middles.
Keep Warm Dishes can be automatically kept warm after they are done cooking. A preprogrammed setting employs low-power microwaves or sometimes uses a heat lamp to keep foods warm.
Non-Stick Interior Does not have a special non-stick interior that makes clean-up easier. Splattered foods or drinks take a little more effort to wipe off, especially if you let them dry and harden for a period of time.
Turntable Turntable is large enough to rotate a standard 9 x 13 inch baking dish. This is a convenient feature if you frequently cook larger dishes for your family or entertaining.
Stainless Steel Stainless steel microwave exterior. Stainless is long-lasting, easy to clean-up, and is currently the most popular material for kitchen appliances. Provides a sleek, modern look.
Size Above average capacity with 1.6 cu. ft. of interior space. More room may be important if you have three or more people in your household, or you like to quickly heat larger dishes for parties and entertaining.
