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 46 pounds, the oven's roomy interior measures 16-3/16 inches long by 16-1/4 inches wide by 9-1/2 inches high, while its compact exterior measures 19-5/16 inches long by 23-7/8 inches wide by 14-13/16 inches high.
4-in-1 Cooking with Convection/Microwave Combination
The microwave oven offers four cooking options in just one countertop appliance. Broil food to perfection with the convection setting, which seals in juices and flavors. Bake and brown cakes, pies, and pizzas, courtesy of the circulating, heated air, or get the best of both worlds using the combination option to benefit from the speed of the microwave and the evenness of convection cooking.
Microwave: defrost, cook, or reheat food in minutes.
Bake: bake and brown with circulating heated air.
Broil: heat is quickly forced inside the food, sealing in juices and flavor.
Combination: the speed of microwaving combines with the baking and browning of convection.
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 until ready to serve.
The one-touch button allows you to set or add cooking time in 1-minute increments.
For safety, the oven's child safety lock prevents electronic operation (door still opens).
Good Housekeeping Seal
Awarded the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval and covered by a one-year limited warranty.
User-friendly push-button control panel with illuminated dials.
Please Note: upper-left corner of the door has a small indentation to allow the door to open smoothly.
