[Review] Panasonic 1200W 1.2 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave Oven with Inverter Technology

In all honesty, the kitchen is not my favorite place to linger. My microwave oven is mostly used for re-heating and seldom baking (My stove oven got busted and I had no choice but to give the microwave a go). If you’re persnickety about what goes on in your kitchen and you delight in the culinary arts, you definitely need a microwave to weather the storm. This microwave should have all the right buttons to push and all the right features to get your day going. The Panasonic 1.2 Cu. Ft Countertop Microwave Oven boasts those features quite well and even offers more.

These stunning features include:

An intelligent microwave oven

You absolutely won’t find this functionality on conventional microwaves. There’s no need to over think when concocting an impeccable meal. With a simple graze of the ‘Sensor Cook’ button, power levels are fixed to automatically modify both cooking and defrosting time. The sensor handles all measurements – including steam produced – and acts as a mediator by alerting the microprocessor. The microprocessor thereafter provides an estimate as to when a meal will be completed. This is all automated so the Panasonic Countertop Microwave does all the book work for you.

A central control system

This microwave oven could not have gotten smarter. All your features and settings are rounded-up in one location for easy, seamless access. This feature is even accompanied by an ‘easy to handle door’. I’m pretty much exhausted from pulling the door of my microwave oven just to get it opened. In fact, my fingers tend to get stuck ever so often. However, with the Panasonic 1.2 Cu. Ft Countertop Microwave Oven, release your microwave’s door with the simple push of a button. A single touch on the control panel is all you need to make it happen.

Consistency in cooking – Inverter technology

Have you ever used one of those microwaves where one part of your meal is left tender while the other is hard? The Panasonic 1.2 Cu. Ft Countertop Microwave Oven allows homeowners to cook their meals at consistent temperatures, without worrying about the texture of their meals. The pioneering inverter technology proffers consistent energy and reduces anxiety since homeowners need not worry about their food overcooking due to stewing. Delicate foods are tackled delicately and a meal looks and feels the way it should.

The microwave’s defrost technology also impacts how food defrost. Instead of waiting tirelessly, enjoy your meal in no time – even faster than auto defrost microwaves.

 A children friendly oven

If you’re worried about your children using the microwave while away, use the ‘Child-Safety Lock’ to protect them. This feature prevents any electronic operation since it makes it impossible for them to open the door. To use this feature, ‘press the START option 3 times to lock the microwave.’ Thereafter, a CHILD will be shown. Again press STOP or the RESET option 3 times to cancel.

Review Overview

The Good: The Panasonic 1.2 Cu. Ft Countertop Microwave Oven boasts an astounding inverter technology, feeding the oven’s ability to turn things up a notch. The 1200W microwave oven raises the bar, whereby proceeding beyond the scope of just ‘heating things up’. This powerhouse is more than just a ‘conventional’ microwave and popcorn pushover.

The Bad: Unless you’re inclined to wield a flashlight when using this oven at nights, the Panasonic 1.2 Cu Ft Countertop Microwave might not be your best option. The digital display sporadically goes dark when the door shuts and the inside is devoid of light.

Is it Worth It?

Overall, you don’t just need a microwave that’ll cook or defrost your meals. Rather, you need an all rounder, something that is user-friendly, children friendly and meal friendly. With the Panasonic 1.2 Cu. Ft Countertop Microwave Oven for just $121.49, transform your kitchen into something magnificent.
