Panasonic Inverter Microwave Oven

An intuitive microwave that delivers precise cook times and better tasting food


Providing consistently even heat throughout the entire cooking process, the Panasonic inverter microwave oven closely replicates the technology of a traditional oven resulting in better controlled cooking and tastier food.

While most microwaves repeatedly turn a high temperature on and off when reheating or cooking food at low temperatures, the Panasonic inverter delivers a constant flow of energy. This keeps from overcooking the edges and enables the simmering of stews or poaching foods such as fish or chicken.

The 1300-watt high powered microwave is equipped with a one-touch sensor button that intuitively calculates cooking time and adjusts the power levels automatically. Ensuring accurate cooking time helps with healthier cooking—foods like broccoli actually retain a higher amount of Vitamin C when cooked faster, compared to steaming or boiling.

CH recently put the Panasonic NN-SD688S to the test and found its unique technology really does provide a better cooking experience. This model ($180) along with other inverter microwaves sell online from Panasonic.
