Cooking plays a huge role in almost every family home. It is said that the kitchen is the heart of the home and it is a sentiment which is very hard to disagree with! Whilst conventional ovens are incredibly useful tools in a chef’s arsenal, they cannot do everything and this is where their smaller brothers, the microwave oven, come to the fore. As you will most likely already know by now, you can cook almost anything in a microwave and that is what makes them so useful. It doesn’t matter what you throw at them, whether it be a potatoes or a chicken most microwaves are up to the task. The one we will be looking at today is the Panasonic NN-SD797S Genius Prestige model and I’ll be telling you all about it!
What are the features?
If you have a full household then this is the oven for you. It has a huge 1.6 litre capacity and 1250 watts of cooking power so it can handle the biggest of family sized portions! A very useful feature is the one from which this machine gets its name. The Genius one-touch sensor cook and reheat will eliminate all of the guesswork associated with how long is needed to cook or defrost you food as all you have to do is push one button and the microwave will work it out for you! Panasonics own Inverter Technology perfects the art of cooking as it constantly delivers microwave energy for even cooking with no risk of burnt edges or overcooking. This same technology is used for the turbo defrost feature which as you may have guessed will deforest your food extremely quickly! On the front of this oven is a silver button control panel with an illuminated neon blue spin dial and six digit backlit display. All of this adds up to a microwave which is incredibly easy to see and use. Just in case you were wondering where to put the microwave, I am happy to tell you it won’t take up too much room as the measurements are only 21 x 19 x 12 inches!
What are the positives?
This oven looks good, it works well and it is jam packed with a lot of features which its competitors simply don’t have. Unlike most others it will cook your food evenly and it gets it right all of the time, so no burnt potatoes for you!
What are the negatives?
The problems that come with the Panasonic are only minor but there are still a couple to mention. The door opening button does require a pretty firm push to open it and you can’t use the control knob to select the power level. That being said this machine is still Oven Shopper’s favorite.
What’s the conclusion?
You can’t really ask for much more. This Panasonic oven will do everything you require of it and will last you for an extremely long time, so you will have lovely family dinners for years to come!
