With its stylish white door and exterior design, the powerful Panasonic Microwave Oven NN-SN651WAZ Countertop with Inverter Technology and Genius Sensor makes a stylish and convenient addition to any home, apartment or condo kitchen.
This exceptional 1200-Watt, 1. 2-cubic-foot capacity microwave with 13-1/2-inch turntable evenly heats and cooks breakfast foods, after-school snacks, dinners, appetizers and more, making it ideal for singles, busy professionals and on-the-go families.
This innovative microwave oven includes patented Inverter Technology which, unlike traditional microwaves that rely on pulse-on, pulse-off power at lower temperatures, delivers a constant stream of cooking power at every temperature for more evenly cooked meals – edges to centers – every time.
With the touch of the Genius Sensor cooking button, this microwave takes the guesswork out of creating a great meal by automatically setting power levels and adjusting cooking or defrosting time for added time-saving convenience.
The sensor measures the amount of steam produced during cooking and signals the microprocessor to calculate the remaining cooking time at the appropriate power level.
A selection of 12 auto cook options enable you to quickly prepare your favorite foods, such as pizza, popcorn, pasta, soup, oatmeal and other dishes
I chose white–looks exactly as shown. It has cook sensor– choose the number of the food type from the legend inside the door(see my pic), push start–no guessing, cooks it perfectly. Has sensor rewarm, also. The timer alerts bother some people (sleeping babies, etc)– you can program them not to ring. Light comes on when door opens, is on when cooking–can see food. Spacious interior. Can choose a delay start, can preprogram cooking stages (so many minutes at this power then so many minutes at another power– I think you can program cooking pauses, too). Can choose “keep warm” up to 30 minutes . Was light enough for this senior lady to unpack and place on shelf over the stove. The only thing it can’t do is crisp–those micros cost way more, are bigger, and too heavy for my shelf. I love this one and the price is good. Prime=no delivery fee. Ps: any negative reviews about bubbling of the button handle–the person probably didn’t remove the protective cling film which you can’t see at first.

Admittedly, I just received this microwave oven today. However, I want to report that, unlike others have reported, the door to this particular microwave oven opens easily AND the light goes on whenever I open the door (not just when it’s cooking). As others have said, the microwave oven does seem louder than my previous microwave oven and, it seems to me, it is because it delivers microwaves constantly to the food. I say this because my previous microwave oven DID get loud intermittently. Considering its overall size, it is remarkable how large the interior is: roughly 13.5 inches wide x 14 inches deep x 9 inches tall. I say roughly because that’s the size for the opening. In fact, the interior walls and ceiling are indented providing more room. I ordered this model because the next size up was too big for my needs. That version had 4.5 stars and great reviews. So I was excited to find this smaller version and ordered right away. I did not read the reviews until after I placed my order. Oops! Here’s hoping this one lasts and does not die within 3 – 13 months from the date of purchase like other reviewers have reported. Fingers crossed!IUPDATE: It has been roughly 9 months and this microwave is still functioning perfectly.

I purchased this item in 2016. Yesterday evening I was cooking a frozen entree that required 4:30 min to cook, but 2 minutes into the cooking I heard it make a pop thump type of sound. Luckily I was close by. I rushed into the kitchen, opened the microwave and Black smoke came billowing out. I immediately unplugged it. All sides were extremely hot to the touch. I grabbed the entree and put it in the sink and doused it with water. My security alarm company installed fire alarms went off, and sent the fire department. ADT Security, thanks soo much. The fire department arrived and they removed the microwave from my house, along with the charcoal black wet entree. I was shaken and scared to say the least. My dog was terrified. Thank god the fire department was sent over, they had to open doors and set up fans to get all the smoke out of my house! This was only 3 years old. I live alone, so it doesn’t get a lot of use. It could have been worse, if I had not been close by, it could have caught my house on fire. I still have a residual smoke smell in my house! Not happy at all!
