    Q:Does this use an inverter to vary power or does it only switch power between full on-off?
    by|May 5, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  The Panasonic NN-SD65LS microwave is equipped with inverter technology. This means it can vary the power output rather than merely switching the power between full on and off. Inverter technology allows for more precise cooking control, which can improve the texture and flavor of your food. It provides consistent energy allowing delicate foods to simmer without overcooking. -M

          Just the right size ....
          I got this to use in my outdoor kitchen. Living in South Florida we have an extended outdoor cooking season .... 12 months a year in fact. The Panasonic 1.3cu. ft. microwave is large enough for the wife and I. The 1000W cooking power and auto-sense make it a breeze to use. It's another "smart" device that makes our lives easier. I highly recommend it to anyone shopping for a moderately sized micro-wave.

          Good microwave except the missing quick start 30 sec button
          The Panasonic microwave comes in a stainless steel finish on the front which matches my stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. It offers all the basic features in a microwave with an added convenience of the rotary dial which makes adding time increments kind of fun. I've used it for about a week and found it powerful enough for its size. The inverter feature makes the food uniformly warm without any hotspots which I like especially for reheating my cold pasta. The sensor cook feature seems to work well too as I do not see water blasting all over once it starts boiling. Coming to the cons: The most important feature I like in a microwave is the quick start 30 button. It has a 30 second button but you still have to press the rotary dial to start which seems counterintuitive. I am not sure if this is some sort of proprietary thing. The other thing I did not like was that the internal light was kind of dim and its very hard to see inside under brightly lit kitchen.

          Great bang for your buck
          Lots of features and easy to use with the dial. Easier to spin the dial than punch in multiple numbers if your picky like me and want to do more than 30 second increments. Good value for money. It is a nice oven for the asking price. Powerful compared to my old model. Cooks much faster The buttons and controls feel good to the touch and operate smoothly. Clock is very bright. Doubles as a nightlight in the kitchen. Numbers in display are big Carousel tray is made of glass, is sturdy, and easy to remove and clean. Interior is all metal construction. A dial is used to enter cook time and/or food weight. Turning the dial increases the time by 5 seconds per click for the first minute, 10 seconds per click from one minute to five minutes, and then 30 seconds per click after that. This allows fine control for short cooking duration's while speeding entry for longer times. Has special modes normally found on microwaves like popcorn and “keep warm” Its automated modes for defrost, reheat, and cook features can be useful for some dishes. The Sensor mode has worked well. has the ability to adjust up or down as you get used to the way you like your food cooked. Cons: The buttons and their labels are not backlit but the clock and numbers are pretty bright so not a big issue The main cabinet exterior is grey painted metal, not brushed stainless steel. Not that attractive if the unit is on a countertop where the sides and top are visible. Only the front, horizontal metal strips are true, brushed stainless steel. One piece that is stainless steel (and probably should be something else) is the pushbutton to open the door. It readily shows fingerprints all the time since it is always being pushed. The power plug is conventional, rather than a 90 degree, flush-mounted style. As a result, the power cable protrudes 4 to 5 inches from the wall/backsplash when plugged into a countertop outlet. This inhibits how close to the wall the unit can be located if the outlet is behind the unit. I purchased a flush mount adapter to resolve this issue.

          Loving the Genius Sensor
          This microwave features Genius Sensor cooking and reheating. I can put any food in to reheat using the sensor and it will automatically stop when it’s ready. I haven’t burned or overcooked anything so far. The 12.4-inch turntable is sufficient for most items. It’s attractive and easy to clean and maintain. It doesn’t take up much counter space. I’m using this one on the bar countertop, mostly for reheating coffee and food, not so much for cooking. I purchased it about two weeks ago and am happy to have it.

          A lot of features for a mid-size microwave
          This arrived and I was worried about the size. My previous microwaves have been small and pretty straight forward in operation. I was relieved when I opened the box and saw that it was well packed and smaller than the box. Set up was also straight forward, remove packing material along with tape on inside of door panel and on exterior of front. I am having a bit difficulty get the blue tape off that is on parts of the front. I checked Proper clearance on all sides and proper placement of the rotating glass plate. The interior is spacious and easy to clean. (Clean interior prior to first use). The main control for nearly everything is a round knob. So after reading all the pages of warnings(wow, I did not know some of these)do not’s and do’s, I found the section for operations. I think I may need to enroll in a class on microwavology :0. Luckily the instructions included step by step photos. Setting the clock was a pain, having to turn knob until I finally got to the time. There is a button for quick 30seconds that can be pressed numerous times to get to your cooking time. Been having fun and getting fat trying out the different options. So far, everything it says it can do , it does. I have to have the booklet out in front of me to operate it, but huge learning curve for me. Youngster, like teens will pick this stuff up fast. So have your kids or grandkids available. LOL. Another learning curve is the wattage. I destroyed a hotdog on first try by setting at the usual time, oops. Overall, getting used to using the knob takes a little time, and using the new options available is still a learning experience but overall I like this microwave. I could have opted for a fancier more options model but I decided on baby steps.

          The Panasonic 1.3 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave in Stainless Steel Built-In Capable with Genius Sensor Cooking, Silver is an easy-to-use, functional microwave which has been fun to use. With its genius feature, it makes the preparation of many foods easier. The outstanding instructions clearly explain how to use every feature of the microwave. One feature that we preferred on our previous microwave was its ability to enter a time. With it, we had a numeric keypad in which we only had to touch a few digits to enter the time. With the Panasonic microwave, we have to turn and turn the analog dial until we reach the desired value; doing this takes more time than with our previous model. Since it weighs 35.3 lbs. and is somewhat awkward to carry, it is not easily moveable but we don’t plan on moving it again. It has many dos and don’ts such as requiring a dedicated circuit and not placing it near a stove which limits its applicability for many households. Since it is not returnable, one needs to think carefully about these limitations before purchasing. It is made in China. It has a one-year warranty.

          Great compact size and super functional control dial.
          Great microwave here from Panasonic. Great compact size and super functional control dial that makes all controls very intuitive and easy. I think all microwaves should have a control dial like this. It is on the smaller side with an interior box size of about 14 inches wide and about 16.5” deep (perfect for my small counter) but still heats things up great with 1100 watts. Sleek black and stainless look. Love it!

          Excellent Features
          Panasonic 1.3 Cubic foot. Countertop Microwave in Stainless Steel. I really like this Microwave. I put a cup of cold (well water) in for 45 seconds and it was hot enough for a cup of tea. It has a nice lock feature to keep small children from turning it on. The knob you see in the picture is to set the time you want , really quick to pick your cooking time. It also senses when the food is ready. A very nice well equipped Microwave by Panasonic

          Powerful and silent
          My need for a powerful microwave came because I am a Manager at a Chain Supermarket and provide everything necessary for the staff break room. paper dishes, paper towels, and plastic cups as well as maintaining a clean refrigerator is part of my job. The crew only gets a 15 minute break so the microwave must be fast and powerful because the break time is so short. This microwave is perfect because of its power. Did I mention it’s amazing energy efficiency?

          Reheats great
          This wound up being a bit bigger than I was expecting but fit my space fine. I was quite impressed with the sensor reheating feature. Reheating food, making oatmeal, sometimes defrosting food and the occassional mug cake is what I tend to do with a microwave. Reheating with my old microwave could be a hassle. Sometimes the food would get too hot, other times it wouldn't get hot enough. The various dishes I put in the microwave to reheat all were heated very well without having to guess weight or time. It took some getting used to new controls but it's been easy to use. The defrost also has worked well on some frozen pork chops and salmon. The meat was defrosted without any significant cooking on the edges. Everything I've used it for so far has cooked very well. It looks nice and feels well made.
