The countertop microwave can be installed in the wall using an optional matching trim kit.(Trim kit shown may not represent actual trim kit.) Inverter Technology Moving Beyond Just "Heating Things Up" Many people just use their microwaves for making popcorn or warming up soup because most microwaves just have one temperature setting--high. Conventional microwave ovens might have a low-power setting, but this is achieved by "pulsing" the high-power setting on and off rather than by emitting a steady stream of low-powered energy. Panasonic's trailblazing Inverter technology delivers true, variable microwave power, which means even temperatures and consistent textures throughout the food being cooked. The consistent delivery of microwave energy allows delicate foods to simmer without the edges and surfaces overcooking, so foods have the look and taste you expect--without the wait. The Inverter microwave oven perfects the art of cooking, taking microwave cooking to a whole new level. You'll experience delicious food that better retains its color, nutrients, and flavor and that's easier and faster to prepare. Oh, and you can still make great popcorn. Single, Compact Power Supply Furthermore, the Inverter power unit is smaller and lighter than conventional microwave circuitry (aka the heavy, enclosed side of the microwave), which allows for more interior space to fit that favorite casserole dish, without increasing the oven's overall exterior dimensions. Weighing just over 31 pounds, the oven's roomy interior measures 18-1/2 inches long by 16-7/16 inches wide by 9 inches high, while its compact exterior measures 19-7/16 inches long by 21-7/8 inches wide by 12 inches high. Additional Features One-Touch Genius Sensor Cook and Reheat With the touch of Panasonic's Sensor Cooking button, the microwave takes the guesswork out of creating a great meal, by automatically setting power levels and adjusting cooking or defrosting time. 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 automatically. Inverter Turbo Defrost Panasonic evolved the Turbo Defrost feature, which allows you to defrost foods even faster than previous Panasonic Auto Defrost. Panasonic Inverter Turbo Defrost technology is an advanced microwave sequencing system using the inverter continuous-power delivery method. Menu Action Screen (multi-lingual) The Menu Action Screen is like having a chef to assist you in the kitchen. It scrolls step-by-step cooking instructions across the display, in a choice of English, Spanish, or French. Keep Warm Feature A pulsing delivery of very low microwave power keeps food temperatures at a constant level--without overcooking. So, foods like stew, gravy, and desserts remain warm in the oven for up to 30 minutes after cooking. Clock/Timer Time-of-day clock and versatile timer provide exceptional convenience. Quick Minute The one-touch button allows you to set or add cooking time in 1-minute increments up to 10 minutes. Control Panel with Blue LED Dial Ring/Blue Backlit Display The silver button control panel, illuminated neon-blue spin dial, and generous six-digit expanded backlit display provide a high-end look and a practically effortless navigation experience in the kitchen. Child-Safety Lock For safety, the oven's child safety lock prevents electronic operation (door still opens). Press Start three times to lock ("Lock" will display); press Stop/Reset three times to cancel. Push-button controls, illuminated dial, and backlit display for ease of use.
