Panasonic NN-SN65KB 1200W Compact Microwave Oven

Panasonic NN-SN65KB is a sleek and compact countertop style microwave oven with a space saving design, 1.2 cubic feet capacity, 1200 watts of high power (12.4A), 11 power levels, and many automatic and manual controls. It has an average rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars by 66 customers which shows a good deal of satisfaction by its performance and reliability.

You have the option to purchase it in stainless steel/silver, white or black with a roughly 70-dollar price difference for the stainless steel. Stainless steel is more expensive than painted metal, that’s why you have such difference in price. It has the genius sensor, 10 sensor settings, 3-level popcorn button, turbo defrost, quick 30 second option on the LED-backlit display. There is a 13. 4 in. turntable that you can fit a decent size large pizza.

Your foods will be cooked or reheated throughout from the middle to the edges with its inverter technology that ensures smooth stream of cooking power that you also have control of. No cold spots are left with the inverter technology of this modern microwave, unlike pulse on and off power flow of some other units. And you can expect this cooking efficiency at all 11 levels of power. With the smart settings on this microwave oven the time and power are automatically adjusted and you don’t need to guess anything.

You just select one of the 10 sensor settings and the Sensor Reheat function will heat your leftover food evenly from the edges to the center maintaining all the taste and nutrients. The three different level choices for popcorn (optimal popping time and temperatures) is good for the different size- 1.5, 2.7 or 3.2 oz. microwave bags for popcorn lovers. The Genius sensors measure the steam emitted constantly to adjust the reheating and cooking time for better tasting results. You’ll find the sensor reheat options for soup, omelet, fresh veggies, sausage, potatoes, quinoa, white rice, oatmeal and more.

Panasonic NN-SN65KB weighs 29.2 pounds and measures 15.8 x 20.7 x 12.2 inches, has a decent 1.2 cubic feet capacity and a 13.4″ turntable. The power cord is about 4 feet long. You probably want to leave a couple of inches of clearance for the sides Panasonic NN-SN65KB 1200W Compact Microwave Displayand the top. Or the oven may overheat or stop working all together if you block the ventilation. Both the exterior and interior of this oven are easy to clean with a damp cloth. The microwave fan will make a bit of noise during the operation, a noise level you’d expect from a standard microwave, nothing excessive.

Just like the even cooking by the inverter technology on this microwave oven, with the inverter turbo defrost function your frozen foods will be thawed quickly and evenly. There are rubber feet underneath to keep the microwave in place when you press the door button or during the operation. The light inside is a bit weak but that’s for a reason. It is bad for your health to stand in the front of a microwave and watch it doing its job. You’re getting good value for your money: Power, a spacious interior, different functions, sensor cooking, premium look and feel, reliability, functionality and more.
