This Panasonic Inverter Microwave gets the job done. It heats up food with very little time. It used to take us 5 minutes to heat up leftovers in our old microwave, but the Inverter does it in a minute! The buttons are easy to use. Our favorite button is the sensor reheat. The microwave knows when the food is hot and stops once the sensor detects food is hot. There are buttons for a quick 30 second reheat, defrost, popcorn, sensor reheat, and more. This microwave is almost silent when heating up food. Another plus is the sleek design. It isn't one of those bulky designs. This microwave easily fits underneath our cabinets. It's a great value for the price. We bought this microwave under a month ago, so I can't say how durable it is as far as lifespan, but I am hoping this lasts for a long time. Panasonic brand is known for reliability and durability.
