    Absolutely brilliant

    5/5
    This Panasonic microwave is the best one we’ve ever had. The main cooking functions available on this model are (the obvious) medium or high cooking, the low simmer, defrost warm, chaos defrost, auto reheat and auto cook. But that’s not all – this microwave also has an aqua clean function to remove food odours as well as a timer for when you are allowing your food to rest. The microwave looks really smart and snazzy in the kitchen but it’s also such a useful product. Aside from the main function of quick cooking times, the main benefit of this microwave for me is the chaos defrost. I had never heard of this before but, in a nutshell, it uses the chaos theory principle to give your food a more even and faster defrost. It uses a random sequence of pulsing and microwave energy to speed up the defrosting process. You can defrost pretty much anything in this mode except sausages (although I’m not sure why!). You could even defrost a whole chicken if you needed to. For me, I use it when I’ve forgotten to get some meat out the freezer for dinner before work and need to make the children dinner quickly. I have been able to defrost diced chicken in just over 5 minutes without any of the chicken beginning to cook (this sometimes happened with my old microwave). As long as you listen out for the beeps during the cycle, and turn and mix the food, you should avoid the cooking process and instead just have nicely defrosted food. When time is short, it’s always handy to have auto cook functions. Using the product weight and program type, you can effortlessly cook fresh vegetables, fresh fish, jacket potatoes and rice without worrying about getting the cooking time wrong. The next feature I now love is the aqua clean program. Sometimes when we’ve reheated a smelly meal or used the microwave to cook fish, the smell can last for quite some time. Now by using this 20 minute cleaning program, we can eradicate the stink without using chemicals. As a microwave goes, this one is the best we’ve had. It’s got enough programs to choose from to give you a functional and useful appliance without being over complicated and unnecessary.

    Great microwave

    5/5
    Really pleased with this microwave, looks good and fit perfectly in my kitchen. Much quieter that my previous Panasonic which I had for 24 years. If this one lasts as long I’ll be very happy. I like Panasonic products as you can rely on there quality. The service from AO.com was as always very reliable and arrived on the day requested.

    I am really thrilled with my new Microwave. It is so easy to use and is a massive improvement on my previous one. The price was very reasonable too. It looks very stylish & matches my other chrome appliances.

    Bought this product off the back of very positive reviews because old one blew up during lock-down. It certainly lives up to the good reviews. Well made, real buttons, simple to use and works well. Also easy to clean. Very satisfied

    Panasonic one of the best microwave manufacturer around

    5/5
    This Panasonic is a very quiet microwave that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. It has plenty of power with its 1000w inverter and a good sized 28.5cm glass plate  The only concern I have is that the stainless steel (colour) surround gets marked very easily by fingers and quite quickly spoils it's good looks. I did have one slight problem the roller ring was missing from the packaging of my item, however with the help of ao.com & Panasonic excellent supper fast customer service support a roller ring was received very quickly in the post.

    Great Microwave oven

    5/5
    Bought this Panasonic Microwave oven to replace my old Sharp model I had for over 10 years when it suddenly packed up,in the middle of preparing a meal I chose Panasonic,like Sharp has a great reputation. Lots of great features. Some yet to be used as I haven't had this new Microwave long. But have cooked jacket potato's which came out great and heated a tv dinner using the built in programs so far The oven Very easy to use, great choice of programs,very quiet in operation too Easy to clean with a soft non abrasive cloth, as is the inside of the oven Very pleased with my purchase, fits nicely on my worktop too

    I found the controls more difficult than my previous models and the handbook did not explain the features. I am still not sure why sometimes cooking starts immediately and other times there seems to be a 30 second delay where the clock runs but there is no heating before the cooking actually starts.

    This is a very good quality microwave. It is easy to use, and is extremely quiet. It looks very sleek in my kitchen. I do like the way the knob pushes in when not being used. Very pleased with my purchase
