This appears to be a high quality product. The sensor reheat works well and certainly beats having 10 different buttons for different foods. Haven't tried sensor cook yet. I wasn't sure about having a knob to set the seconds, but it works well and most of my family members prefer it. Now I really bought this microwave because of the inverter technology. I cook a lot and melt things like butter and chocolate - and I'm tired of the butter melting in the center, then spattering all over the inside for a few seconds, even though I have it's set on power level 3. This microwave really does what they advertise - power level 3 is 30% power, NOT power level 10 for 30% of the time. It WORKS! And that alone makes it worth the extra money. The only negative I can think of is that it's rather short, height - wise.
This is a wonderful microwave. It has a lot of power and cooks and heats faster than most microwaves. It does a great job at defrosting. I really like the knob for setting the time. You can set in down to the seconds if you want, which I like. Many microwaves you can only choose 1,2,3 minutes and can only add in 30 second increments. Anyone who uses a microwave a lot, knows you can ruin something in 30 secs. We had this in our last house and I am buying another one for our new house.
This is my second Panasonic microwave. The first lasted about eight years, so I did not hesitate in buying another. Of course I checked the reviews, just to be sure quality had not been compromised in the interim. Great reviews. Quieter than the last one, love the mirrored (v.s. black) door. I don't cook in a microwave, but I do a lot of defrosting (excellent) and reheating (sensor-heat rocks!) I also prefer the raised buttons to the flush number/control pad. Over the years the info. on the touch pad actually started wearing and fading and looked kind of shoddy. Although I read some iffy reviews about the door, I like it. It doesn't need a big push and it closes rather quietly.
I bought this in Oct of 2012. It started giving us issues about a year later and it has officially died on 2/1/2014. Nice looking product but it ended up being junk that the company wouldn't stand behind. There is a 1 year warranty period but once you are outside of that there are no exceptions.
Loved this microwave -perfect size and fit in with our decor... HOWEVER... It is already malfunctioning at just under a year old. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. There is NO manufacturers warranty, so if you do purchase, I highly recommend also purchasing the warranty from o.com. Very disappointed - more junk for the landfill unfortunately.
this microwave is the most awsome one your every going to get....even heating not like others...it works like a charm...an very attraction looking best of quality.....can't go wrong...give it a try...

The best features of this unit are the dial to adjust the run time and timer, and the start button lights up. This is great for me because I often use the microwave in the dark or a dimly lit kitchen.
