Panasonic are a Japanese manufacturer that specialise in electronic devices and components. The company were founded in 1918, and have since developed a worldwide reputation for quality products. Their microwaves are regarded as some of the finest and best value available.
In this set of microwave oven reviews we look at the popular Panasonic range.
The Panasonic NN-SD466M Digital Solo Microwave is a top-selling line that was judged as the best stand-alone solo model by Which? Coming in a stylish silver colour, the microwave has several convenience features such as auto weight programmes for popular foods and a pop-out dial control. This microwave cooks food quickly and evenly, at up to 900W. Highly recommended.
An alternative to this model is the Panasonic NN-ST477SBPQ Digital Solo Microwave, which also comes in a stainless steel colour, and offers largely the same features.
Microwave and Grill
Those who want all of the benefits of the NN-SD466M but with additional grilling features should consider the Panasonic NN-GD566M Digital Grill Microwave. The main additional is that of a 3-setting grill, meaning it browns, toasts and crisps like an ordinary grill - so toast, sausages and bacon can all easily be cooked in this clever device.
Microwave, Grill and Oven
Retailing at just a few pounds extra, the Panasonic NN-A554W Digital Combi Grill Microwave is a slight step up from the NN-GD566M as it cooks at up to 1000W, but is actually slightly smaller and more slimline - ideal for those for whom space is at a premium. As well as the additional grilling option, there are also oven features - it is even possible to cook a medium-sized chicken little over half an hour. This model offers excellent quality for just a little extra money.
As you can see, the microwave that you choose will depend largely on whether you require the grill and oven features as well as the standard microwave option. Consider your needs and choose as appropriate - but rest assured that many microwave oven reviews rate Panasonic models very highly.
