The Panasonic 1.2 cu. ft. Inverter Microwave Oven is a great family microwave. The size is perfect to fit on the counter and still allow additional space for other appliances. Th controls are easy to use and I love the popcorn and defrost features. The cooking time is quicker than my previous microwave and this is a great feature. I reccomend this microwave for those who need an efficient model that is durable, will get the job done and not take up a lot of space.
