Worst Mirowave I have ever purchased - NO Stars
Purchased from Harvey Norman - thought I got a bargain. Little did I know that this microwave has a known fault that renders it useless once the code h97 appears on the screen. I have had this microwave less than 6 months. Aesthetically pleasing but please do not purchase this microwave - you will regret it...
Cannot see what's going on
Purchased this microwave less than a week ago. Really don't like it, it is black inside and out and the interior light is badly placed. It may work brilliantly but you cannot see anything inside while it is cooking as it is so dark with the black interior. Tried to heat milk for a drink in a clear glass mug couldn't see if it was about to boil over. Recipe book had instructions for white sauce. That would be risky as you cannot see it rising in the Pyrex jug. So very disappointed.
Purchased this microwave as a replacement for my old one. I have nothing but positive feedback, the technology has come a long way. It is well worth paying a little more to get the added features. I love the fact that it sensor cooks. I find it easy to operate with the touch pad being self explanatory. The old sharp I had was not at all easy to read, so I have to thank Panasonic for the ease of operation.
Looks Good, Works Well
We replaced a sharp microwave which was starting to fall apart and opted for a new Panasonic .A great looking microwave with a blue LED display, fits in with our other appliances perfectly, the microwave cooks food nicely and have no complaints, easy to use , the door button has a smooth action compared with other machines i tried.
Not Sure About This One
Some things I didn't take in to consideration before purchase! It is dark inside and the light is small, not well light like previous microwaves. OH is already complaining he cant see anything cooking. The settings are black and in my opinion hard to see. So to question 2, no I feel the settings and features are not easy. I hate the cooling period. Microwave is extremely quiet to use, well built, light weight, a feature I looked for was the door latch, my previous LG latch broke after a short time. This Panasonic has a far superior latch it...appears. I like the flat bed, it seems to cook very even. Tried scrambled eggs on 1 minute and they where cooked perfectly. So 4 out of 5 satisfied on the review criteria so far. Pity about the dark small settings panel.

So Far So Good :)
Replacing a 16-year-old Samsung which was starting to vibrate badly and would sometimes die when doing potatoes, this Inverter Microwave is so far fantastic. Cooks food very evenly, and sensor cook mode is great for doing vegetables, etc. Things we don't like: there's no one touch start, and adding time during cooking isn't as straight forward as the old Samsung. Also it's sometimes hard to see what the food might be doing inside (important for things like porridge which could overflow onto the turntable). But the Black model looks very classy...and Darth Vader like in our Kitchen. We see lots of negative reviews for things when they break down so hoping that this review gives us some karma and this Microwave lasts at least as long as the last one!

Hi Dave if you have removed the plastic there shouldn't be bubbles, if you have just purchased the unit, please contact the retailer for further assistance.
