I bought this microwave because it has a sensor, which works as I expected.. Put in a plate of cold food, press Sensor Reheat, and no matter the quantity of food it will heat it up the right amount of time to get the right temperature. Some other microwaves have a Reheat button, without a sensor, but just gives a set amount o time, which is useless. Reheat used to mean it had a sensor, but apparently now you have to look for the word Sensor. It also has a Sensor Cook button which I don’t find useful. You have to press a number 1 through 12 after pressing the Sensor Cook button, for different kinds of food, as listed in the manual. If you don’t have the manual, it is useless. The screen does not tell you what the codes are, nor is it printed anywhere on the oven. Even if you know the number, you still have to adjust for the amount of food, so what exactly is being sensed is not clear to me.Others have complained about the light not coming on when you open the door (it goes on only while it is cooking). It does not bother me as I can see inside well enough when I open the door, and I like I can leave the door open to air out the oven, without a light burning. You need the light while it is cooking to check that something is not overflowing.Regarding the door opening mechanism, I would prefer a handle, as it gives your hand a larger target area – an 8 inch long handle – to shoot for when opening compared to the 2 inch x 1 inch rectangle. But it is not a deal breaker. The mechanism itself is fine. I find that it opens and closes smoothly without much effort, unlike some other reviewers here who complained about that.I am looking forward to using the Keep Warm function. That sounds useful.I like the simple numbers to set the time. I have gotten used over the years to press 11, 22, 33 seconds and so on, fine tuning the amount of time while minimizing the button presses. Some microwaves today you cannot do that – the numbers are for number of minutes, not seconds – but not for this microwave. There is a One Minute quick start button. It would be nice to have a 10 Second quick start button, and also to start immediately without having to press Start.Overall I am happy with this microwave. The Sensor Heat works as I expected. Because of what I think is a redundant Sensor Cook button and the lack of a handle, I took off a star.
We purchased this product in December 2015 and it broke in February 2017. The code flashed “H98,” which means that “The oven unit power supply source failed.” The product booklet also tells you that the remedy is to “contact an authorised Service Center.” But when I called Panasonic, I was told it would cost me $10.95 to talk to an agent since the product was out of warranty. I guess you get what you pay for. I’ll never buy a product from Panasonic again.
We recently got this model at work and I really liked it. 1200watts, silent/beepless mode, what’s not to like? I ordered one and got it in a timely manner. Turned out to be a dud. After less than 90 seconds into a cooking cycle it completely shuts down. No clock, nothing. Amazon is great as always and quickly sends me a replacement. It too turns out to be a dud. Same exact problem. I’m disappointed to say the least especially since I can’t find another brand/similar model with a beepless mode. I’ll hold on to my refund until my research brings me good news.TL;DR If you only want to use it for 60 seconds at a time, this might be perfect for you.
