We are looking for a countertop microwave oven that's compact, powerful, and sleek-looking. This microwave is exactly what we are looking for. Considering other microwave the same size, this one heats things up extremely well. We are very happy with the purchase.
Nice little microwave. I needed something smaller, but still powerful. This one fits the bill. Found it on other sites, but Overstock had the best price.

The microwave seemed nice online and it was a good price for the wattage you get so I took a chance and purchased it even though I had not seen this model in stores anywhere. I was very pleased when I opened the box and saw how nice it looks in person.. very classy, clean lines and it looks like I spent a lot more money than I did. In addition, the microwave is a nice small size for the power it puts out! (While shopping I was finding the more power the microwaves have, the bigger they are. I have limited counter space so this is an issue with me.) Bottom line: I highly recommend this product!
Good product - excellent delivery. Would highly recommend.

This microwave is in line with other Panasonic products I've bought over the years - that lasted for years. I've had this unit about a month and so far it works great heating food quickly and evenly. The sound of the door closing has that soft solid quality sound - no rattling or clanking. The pop-out dial is so cool, but the preset buttons are even better. It's everything it claims to be.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Amazing product!!!!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The microwave is exact, but I didn't think to account for the plug, so I needed to accomodate 2 more inches in depth.
The unit is housed in a small nook, so size was the major factor in selecting this product. Compared to other units of similar wattage, it was the smallest I could find from a well rated manufacturer. I've had the unit for a month or 2 now and I couldn't be happier. The only "Gotcha" is that the unit does not have a keypad (I knew this before purchasing), and I'm not totally sold on the idea of using a dial. I also had to pull out the manual immediately to figure out how to put the the unit in "time cook" mode. Once I hit the correct button the first time, it now always responds to a spin of the dial. So I'd call it a one off, but don't through that manual away until you know how this thing works! I'm pulling a point because the interface isn't particularly intuitive (though heads above other microwaves I'm sure!) An it makes a high pitched squeal sometimes when just sitting there. Most can't hear it, but I can hear a muted cathode ray tv in another room so I guess I'm particular sensitive to it.
How do you rate a microwave? All of them that I have purchases, regardless of source, have been good microwaves. This one is also a good microwave. Do not discount it simply because I did not mark it as excellent. I wouldn't mark any microwave as excellent. It is a microwave and it operates like all my previous microwaves operate. I am happy with it and would recommend it. As with all stainless steel items, fingerprints are very visable. However they are visible on all my stainless steel appliances.
When I researched to replace our last microwave (an imported brand that only lasted a year, by the way), I looked for a brand made in the USA. So many of the products imported from overseas lack value and break down so quickly. The new Panasonic is great so far; I really like the intuitive controls and it heats evenly. I also love the style (simple and classic) and size. As usual, the service I received from Overstock was top-notch; we received our order sooner than expected and packed well, even during the busy holiday season.
I had a very old microwave in the pass. Needed one to replace it. I checked out the Panasonic . It's easy to use and heats fast. I use it more for reheating. I like the different setting for heating. It's fast. The direction book is easy to follow. I like the stainless steel finish. It goes good with my new toaster too. I wouls recommend buying thjis Panasonic microwave.
