It turns out that conventional microwaves really only have one power level, High. Even when we set the Power level to 50%, we’re still cooking at full (high) power, but at 50% of the time.

It’s quite a strange concept that I wasn’t aware of previously.

With the inverter technology, when we set the power level to 50%, we’re really cooking at a stable 50% power the entire time. So it’s acting like a real oven now and thus, you can cook better in it.

    Just bought this today.

    Our old microwave died from over use so I went shopping for a new one. Nothing fancy, nothing too big but it had to have power (>1000W)

    I was skeptical buying one because the door on the model on display seemed hard to close, but I decided I could live with it,

    Once I got it home, I found it not to be a problem for the one I had ;-).
    As far as power – WOW! our old 1100 watt oven must have been dying for a while!
    Setting the clock was a challenge at first though – But once I read the instructions, all was good. Auto reheat, defrost and auto cook also require READING THE INSTRUCTIONS, but with the variable power feature they really work very well.

    The only down side I can see is that the fan noise is a little louder (not extreme).

    My wife is more critical and her complaints are:
    It has an add a minute button vs a half minute (because it heats things too much on a minute)
    The stainless shows finger prints.

    Given the price and features, I can live with the “problems”

      still is it good? Bought this today and getting more noise while running. and one more problem is that light turns on while cooking only.

        Used it for 3 months with no problem. I do not find the noise level excessive but it is a little louder than lower power model. Unlike other models that modulate the klystron on and off, this unit seems to adjust the power output of the klystron. This results in the unit a making a uniform sound at almost all power levels.

    This is a really good microwave. I’ve owned 2 of them. There is a problem with it. The steam doesn’t escape and builds up water inside the oven. The water builds up under the round glass turntable and isn’t always noticeable, at least not until the paint at the bottom of the microwave blisters up and peels and then rusts. I cleaned the water up when I used the oven, but it discolored the paint and after 2 years of use, The paint is starting to peel and the rust isn’t far behind. The over will still work like gang busters, but it’s not pretty inside. This happened to both microwaves and I have never had anything like this happen with any other model and I’ve owned lots of them going back to the early 1980s. This is the best working one I have ever owned, and I’ll probably buy another Panasonic, I just wish the inside paint wouldn’t peel and rust.
