Panasonic 1200W 1.2 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave Oven with Inverter Technology NN-SN661S Stainless

$164.99

I haven’t tested that model, though all of the Panasonic microwaves have pretty much the same cooking technology; the main differences are the finish and control panel. If you have room, you may want to consider a slightly larger model - 1.2 cubic feet is definitely a small unit. But if that’s what you have room for, that’s what you have room for.

There are literally thousands of reviews on the web about Panasonic microwaves with problematic door issues. And almost nobody seems to have a Panasonic that lasts a year. My NN_SN968B is going back without it ever being opened. The reviews are atrocious. The thing is, there are far more bad reviews about the Panasonic microwaves than there are any reviews for others. Why don’t they fix the door problem? Maybe they figure it will die before a year even after the door is fixed.

The Sharp convection microwave produced the best results: fluffy, tasty omelets. This is likely due to the Sharp's comparatively low wattage (900 watts) and its slow-cooking convection heating technology. The Panasonic came in at a close second. That isn't great considering the recipe was made by Panasonic for Panasonic inverter microwaves. The Whirlpool came in third, and the Amana came in fourth -- that's most likely due to their high wattage (1,200 watts) and lack of a specialty heating feature.
