my husband and i recieved this microwave as a gift about 2 years ago when our other microwave had finally gone to pot. my in-laws bought it for us and i'm very pleased with this oven. i have never owned this brand before and i wished i had in the past. this baby has many features on it including an inverter, 10 power levels, inverter turbo defrost which i love very much. it defrosts without actually cooking your frozen meat. it has a popcorn button, breakfast button, lunck/snack button, dinner button, beverage button, keep warm button, a sensor reheat feature, a timer and a clock. those are the features this baby is loaded with. it has a turning table inside that can be removed for easy cleaning also. i love this thing. you can just hit the beverage button and it will ask how many and you punch in 1 or 2 and set it to heat that many servings for you. it's a nice feature. also the popcorn button asks what size the bag of popcorn it is so you don't scorch a smaller serving size. it really is a nice microwave. i would buy a new one when this one goes.

This is a nice microwave as most panasonic products I have seemed to be. With a nice chromed finish makes it easy to clean and doesn't show dust and dirt the way black and white ones do. The door is a little tough to open as the button has to be pressed in real good so older people may not like this one. With 1300 watts of cooking power it gets the job done very fast. Cook a potato in 6-7 minutes where our old microwave took 12-14. The food cooks pretty evenly throughout and the defrosting works very good as well. Not such a fan of the rotary dial but getting used to it. The display is also small so it is hard to read if you don't have good eyesight. I would still recommend the microwave though as it doesn what it should and looks nice.

I'll never again settle for a 70's garage sale microwave.

Comments about Panasonic 1300 Watt 1.2 Cubic Feet Genuis Microwave:

Our old microwave had faux wood siding and a crack on the door. It heated unpredictably and looked like a prop from that 70's show. Consequently, when my in-laws gave us our new Panasonic 1300 Watt 1.2 Cubic Feet Genius Microwave, we were stunned by its innovative features. Firstly, it's gorgeous! The stainless steel look is modern and sleek with clear buttons and a bright easy-to-read LCD screen that (on top of the usual numbers and such) displays pleasant little messages like "Enjoy your meal!" How cute! Cuteness aside though, I've never had a microwave that defrosted frozen chicken so quickly (without cooking it) thanks to the amazing inverter technology. A bowl of spaghetti (that took us six minutes to partially reheat in our 70's jalopy) is elevated to steaming perfection in only two minutes in this microwave. I still need to play around with all the fancy settings but every time I learn something new I fall in love with this microwave all over again. My highest recommendation!

This microwave was a purchase we made quickly because our old microwave had died. I did not research this microwave beforehand. The reason we bought it was because it was in stock at our local store. The more surprised I was to find that this microwave works wonderfully. I do not cook much in it. We use it primarily for heating up dishes and for making popcorn. Both works great. The microwave has a sensor reheat option which determines on its own when the food is heated up. One can also choose between heating the food up a little more or a little less. I prefer to heat it up less as I have noticed that on the standard setting the dish gets a little too hot.
For popcorn we choose the popcorn setting and it works great. It never comes out burnt. I do not know how the microwave performs for actual cooking purposes.

I love this microwave!

Comments about Panasonic 1300 Watt 1.2 Cubic Feet Genuis Microwave:

I bought this microwave not very long ago and so far I am loving it. The microwave is 1300 watts, which means that heating up frozen food is very quick! Also the new technology allows the food to heat up very evenly, not like the older microwave where the outside or the bottom of the food would be still cold while the very top is boiling already. I use this microwave every single day for the past three months and I did not notice any problems in terms of heating food up. There are a lot of pre-set functions that come with this microwave but I personally did not try them all out. The microwave does sometimes interfere with my wifi connection or my antenna television connection when it is operating, which is not good. Also it comes with warranty which is also good. So overall I love this microwave and would like to recommend to everyone who is looking to buy a microwave!

mighty and superb microwave

Comments about Panasonic 1300 Watt 1.2 Cubic Feet Genuis Microwave:

Wow! It's nice to write my review here. Me and my husband bought a Panasonic 1300 Watt 1.2 cubic feet genius Microwave for about six months ago in a supermarket close to our place and I am very empress with this genius microwave! So fast, quick and mighty microwave! It's my assistant and my helping hand when I'm preparing our foods in my kitchen. One thing I like most is when I'm defrosting some frozen foods; it helps me to prepare the meat I'm going to cook especially when I am in the last minute to make the food. Wow! 45 minutes your food is ready. The food cooks evenly; it doesn't burn or overcook, it's perfect! Just set the microwave what you wanted to cook, it's all there and you just press the bottom, set the time and wait till it's done, that's it, your food is ready. It makes our daily life easy when preparing our foods. The appearance is pretty; the size doesn't need a very large space in our kitchen it fits well to our cute kitchen. This microwave has never given me any trouble that's why I really love it and highly recommend this brand. If you want to save money and get worthy microwave; Panasonic 1300 Watt 1.2 cubic feet genius Microwave is right for you.

Panasonic Genius works really really well

By

Comments about Panasonic 1300 Watt 1.2 Cubic Feet Genuis Microwave:

I replaced one of my old microwaves with the Panasonic Genius Microwave and it is a HUGE upgrade from my older model. This microwave cooks food so well and so fast. I absolutely love it. It is so easy to use. There is no pushing 20 buttons in orderto get it to start. It is really simple and it is very powerful. It cooks food so much quicker than any other microwave I have ever used. I can put something in it for 20 seconds and it is like it was after a minute and a half in my old microwave. Anyone who wants a great, powerful, easy to use microwave that cooks really well should try out this microwave. I could almost guarantee that it would blow away whatever microwave is in your kitchen at this moment.

Panasonic inverter micorwave

Comments about Panasonic 1300 Watt 1.2 Cubic Feet Genuis Microwave:

We bought this microwave because of the looks and were disappointed with its performance. it died on us within a year for no rhyme or reason. Just one day smelled something burning as was heating a dish and the magnetron was broke. it can never be fixed as panasonuc charges a cost for repiars almost as much as a new microwave does. The inverter technology is so new I don't think it works any different thatn a usual microwave. We are happier with our new GE. Even though the new GE microwave had less wattage on it it heats us faster and uniformly than our old panasonic did.

This Panasonic Microwave is Genius!

By 

from Bridgehampton, NY

Comments about Panasonic 1300 Watt 1.2 Cubic Feet Genuis Microwave:

The Panasonic 1300 Watt 1.2 Cubic Feet Genuis Microwave is really great at heating up my food and having it ready in the mornings and evenings. I love this product from Panasonic as it is really effective at getting the job done. I think the size of this Panasonic Genius Microwave fits me just right in that it can hold the desired portions of food that I place in it. My old microwave was a bit difficult to use and manage and I was too small for me to use. I had purchased my old one due to the fact that it was going for cheap. This proved to be a big mistake as it gave my one problem after the other. I love this product from Panasonic because although it is really good it is not as expensive as some of the other brands from the other companies. I know that everyone would love to save a buck or two on the products that they purchase and this one is really worth the price and it is super easy to use and is quite durable and powerful.

Panasonic 1300 watt 1.2 cu feet microwave is just superb.

Comments about Panasonic 1300 Watt 1.2 Cubic Feet Genuis Microwave:

I love this microwave oven. It makes my life easier in kitchen, From morning to night it is widely used in my kitchen. We warm up our milk for breakfast, use it to warm uo the left overs and even the regular food if it has cooled down. It come sin very handy to warm up the baby food which i make at home and freeze. It boils potatoes very nicely and helps me make lunch and dinner faster. Sometimes we even make rice in microwve and come out very good. My kids love to make popcorn in microwave during weekends. This microwave has become an important part of our lives. It heats up the microwaveable lunch or dinner packs nicely too. It is very easy to use and even a new person can work with it very easily for eg sometimes i hire a nanny to look after my kids when i have to go some places, all i have to do is leave the labled food in fridge and my nanny feeds my kids after warming them in the microwave. It is also easy to clean.
