    Does this have a turntable?

    Asked by Sam October 30, 2018

    Answers

    Yes. Although it stands apart bc of the genius technology, otherwise it's layout is like most other microwaves-- the turntable, how you set the clock, etc.

    Does this use Panasonic's "Inverter Technology?" It's not mentioned in the description, as it is ...

    Asked by Mike November 27, 2018

    Answers

    No. This NN-SU656B model has apparently been discontinued. It's said the replacement is the NN-SN65KB which has a 'Genius Cooking Sensor' AND 'Inverter' technology, 1200W and a somewhat larger 13.4" outer diameter turntable.

    Does this model have a kit so it can be installed in a cabinet

    (What's this)
    The Panasonic 1.3 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave in Black with Genius Cooking Sensor arrived in 2 boxes (one inside the other) and was packed very well. Nothing was loose and everything was intact. Once removed from the box, the glass turntable needed to be unpacked and then I was ready to go. Touching Clock Set, the actual time on the number pads, and then the Clock Set button again. Clear and bright green numbers appear on the upper left front corner. Most of the other cooking buttons are pretty basic ones seen on most microwaves nowadays. I use the Sensor Reheat, Auto Defrost, and Quick 30 the most. I've seen a lot of microwaves in my last 40 years but I've never seen one a popcorn button with 3 levels. 2 levels - most definitely - but 3? I have never even seen microwave popcorn bags come in 3 sizes. The buttons are legible and do not require a lot of pressure to react. The light bulb inside the cooking area (squarish) comes on during cooking and when the door is open. The microwave is suitable for a dorm room, apartment or basement and fits just fine on countertops. It's a basic model but having 1100 watts is a plus, especially for its size. Mine is ideal for my basement rec room area. It is not overused but does a good job for popcorn, soups, microwaveable hors d'ouerves, and the like for movie night or while binge watching a TV series that I am behind on. It also comes in handy when I am re-heating or trying to keep some food warm when my main kitchen and microwave are already busy upstairs for the holidays, parties, and big dinners. I think Panasonic has done a better job in the past; this microwave just seems to be a basic example of their products. I hope Panasonic is not going anywhere.

    Model SN-SU 656B (Discontinued, but sources say updated version is NN-SN65KB)** Appearance: Black on front and all sides, with green LED display; attractive if black is your appliance color scheme; entire front surface is flat (makes cleaning easier, no knobs or crevices); pushbutton door release ... (see Outside photo) Size: indicated as a Medium microwave; 16-1/8" deep + 4 inches of recommended back clearance ... means you will have just 5 inches or so of counter in front of the oven (enough to satisfy the 3 inches from the edge for tip-over safety reasons). Interior size (approx.) 13 x 13 x Glass turntable: 12-3/8" outer dia. > 11-1/4" of which is flat ... (see Interior photo); there IS an internal light when cooking and when the door is opened, but it's a rather dim incandescent bulb behind the grill in the front right side of the oven. Features: People enjoy the 'Genius Cooking Sensor' -- which senses the moisture (steam) from cooking food and adjusts the time / power accordingly ... as well as the 'Keep Warm' and 'Auto Defrost' features. ** the NN-SN65KB also features the Panasonic 'Genius Cooking Sensor' and cost about $40 more but has 1200W 'Inverter' technology for Turbo Defrost, and a turntable with 13.4" outer diameter... it may also have a higher user-review rating

    This is a sleek little microwave with tons of features. We love its clean, black color. Its compact design fits right on top of our little cabinet. Unlike our previous microwave ovens, the preset cook menu works well as expected. It packs sufficient power for fast, even cooking. The turntable is easy to take out and clean. Overall, we are very pleased with its performance so far.

    This microwave is much larger than what I expected. It is made well and is high quality. The buttons for selections are clearly marked and very easy to read and understand. I am not used to a microwave that also can bake foods so it is interesting to me. I did bake a chicken breast in it and it came out moist and thoroughly baked. So far I am very pleased with it. I expect this microwave to last me for quite some time.

    This microwave features some pretty impressive technology. It's trying to make cooking almost foolproof. And they're doing a pretty good job of it! The sensor approach to cooking helps to control appropriate amount of time in the actual microwave. Overall, it looks like a standard microwave, but the technology is the main differentiator. Also, for us, this one is about one inch taller and one inch deeper than the one we previously used. So at this point it's taking up pretty much the entire microwave cart, while the other one had just a tiny bit more wiggle room on it. But it fits perfectly on a standard microwave cart. It looks great. Also, I carried it around by myself; I didn't need to ask the better half for help with that. It's amazing how it can be both so light and yet so strong. Also, we have had no trouble cleaning out the inside of it, either. --Fantastic advancement in microwave technology! :-)

    We acquired this 1.3 cubic foot Panasonic countertop microwave in black that has a genius cooking sensor built in with one touch. It appears to be built very soundly and is quite beautiful. It is 1100 watts and has a sleek, embossed-look membrane keypad and touch controls plus a 12.4 inch turntable to evenly heat and cook breakfast foods, after school snacks, etc..

    A great microwave with a small footprint. I have the 1100 watt unit and it's great. The unit is very compact for the inside cooking space (easily holds a 12 inch casserole dish). A few must have features include a number of preset cooking buttons (3 alone for popcorn bags). The genius sensor is a great add as well. It detects how much steam is being produced to modify the cooking. So a baked potato or a chilli are cooked perfectly if you are busy working on other things. Last awesome feature, the keep warm function. Great when one of the kids is slow to come in after his afternoon practice.

    This is a medium size microwave. It easily fits on the kitchen counter. It has a large inside so you can fit a standard 10 inch plate in it. The inside dimensions are 13" x 13". I had a smaller one and always had issues when I would warm up soup. The square bowl barely had enough room to spin so it would keep on going one direction and going the other direction. It fits a 8" x 8" bowl with no problems. It also has a light so when you open the door it comes on.

    This size microwave is a nice medium size, not too small and not too large. It has much appreciated features such as one touch "30 Second" heat up. Fairly large print on the buttons making it easy to read / see. Clock is also large and easy to see. Not too heavy when glass lazy susan isn't in it. Good amount of light when door is open. Control panel and door are flush making it easy to clean and to keep clean. Heats food and drinks nicely and more importantly evenly! It is pretty quiet and the alert beeps are not annoying. Recommend highly.

    So easy to use - right out of the box! There was no uncomfortable "learning" phase as it is pretty straightforward and user friendly. At 1100 watts,it is about the same as what we were used to, so cooking time is easy to estimate. Of course, there is also a "Sensor Cook" feature if you don't want to bother with any mental math. Of all the features,I particularly like the auto-defrost feature and the "Keep Warm" feature is awesome. It is a nice, compact, counter-friendly size and fits well The appearance,overall,is very attractive and blends well with my other black stainless steel appliances. Very happy with this unit!
