Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Panasonic Slimline Combination Ovens offer 20% more space on the work surface without a reduction in oven capacity. It is designed with a fan in the roof of the oven above the grill, to allow hot air to circulate around the cavity, creating convection heat from the top down. This new heat system in our Slimline range increases the versatiltiy of the machine, from a microwave oven with grill to a basic combination oven.

Slimline ovens offer a convection oven temperature range from 100 - 220 degrees celsius, ideal for jacket potatoes, casseroles and roasting meat.

Inverter technology replaces the traditional bulky transformer and capacitor components with a conventional Inverter circuit board which provides many user friendly benefits, such as constant power, even cooking and lighter ovens (on average 3Kg lighter).

Most microwaves operate on constant power, when high or full is selected. Other power levels are acheived by the microwave pulsing on and off. Panasonic Inverter Technology gives constant power on medium and low power settings--providing the perfect cooking process for your food. Inverter also ensures when reheating or cooking that your food is heated evenly, improving texture and flavour

A 1.3KW Quartz Grill element in this oven heats up instantly to brown and cook all traditionally grilled foods--ideal for today's busy lifestyle. Autoweight programs are designed to cook the most poular foods to perfection, once the weight has been entered.

As a previous reviewer has mentioned, the oven cooks some things brilliantly, much better Roast Chicken than in my main oven! The CHAOS defrost function is superb, I find food like frozen chicken breasts are defrosted without starting to actually cook them. I haven't used the grill yet so cannot comment.

The build quality is very good throughout. I particularly like the fact that the oven is a good compact size so it doesn't take up too large a footprint on my worktop. The manual is very good and pretty much tells you everything you need to know.
I would knock half a star off as you can only use the preset microwave power ratings, they can't be adjusted, so a lot of the time it is High (1000w) or Medium (600w) and no ratings option in between, 800w would be nice as most ready meals have cooking times for 800w.

I have had a slightly older version of this now for over 5 years and wish that I had bought one years ago. I never really cooked properly in my older standard microwaves as I didn't like the end result and only really used it for a few things, reheating, defrosting etc. Since having this one I have recommended it to everyone whenever the converstion turns to combination microwaves. I have just bought my son and his girlfriend one for their new flat as he knows how good mine is and know how to use it well. I am also trying to convert my mum as she has a much cheaper combination microwave and it's totally useless. I would never buy any other brand and would definately always get a panasonic with the inverter.
Highly Recommended, you won't look back.

I bought this microwave a couple of weeks ago as we have no kitchen at the moment and wanted something to tide us over. I have not been disappointed with this microwave. There are 5 different functions: grill, convection oven, microwave and combination of either grill/microwave or oven/microwave. The instructions are clear and make it extremely simple to use. Food is always cooked in the time stated in the manual.

Highly recommended!

We bought our Panasonic Slimline Combi Microwave in February 2008 and it suddenly stopped working in October 2009, tripping the house circuit breaker. It was dead with nothing working. Took it to the local Panasonic agent. They commented that Panasonic did not get the early versions of the Slimline Combi right and the inverter/magnatron was the problem and had to be replaced. They had seen many non-working examples with just my problem and was surprised it had lasted 1 year 10 months. They said that Panasonic had now improved the inverter/magnatron design and since my Slimline Combi was less than 3 years old, Panasonic would supply the parts free of charge, but I would have to pay for the investigation and parts installation labour. I tried to get Panasonic to pay the labour, but they refused to recognise the problem and contradicted their Repair agent's comments that the Slimline Combi was a poor design and would last way less than 2 years before breaking down. We will see how long the repairs last and will avoid the Panasonic brand in the future since their work test programs are obviously inadequate.

I have had two NN-A554W and both developed exactly the same fault in exactly the same place (burnt door seal) after very little use. I still don't know how or why that happened and Panasonic couldn't or wouldn't explain it. As the second appliance was still under guarantee (just four months old, less than two months of use) I got my money back (thanks Amazon). I now need another microwave but I will not be buying another Panasonic.
I advise all users to check the door seal regularly.

I loved this microwave, used it every day for almost 2 years. Then, mid cooking session, it tripped the RCD and died abruptly. No digital display. Nothing. Not so much as a goodbye. I've tried to find someone to repair it, but they all say it's cheaper to replace it. It made great jacket potatoes, but to be honest, most of the time I only used the microwave function, so think I'll replace it with a much cheaper one, and probably not Panasonic. I'm very interested that other people have the same problem, so there seems to be a design fault somewhere, and it would be helpful if Panasonic could show rather more interest in investigating it than they have done so far.

I bought this Microwave Combination Fan Assisted etc oven middle of November 2007. 13 months later and it stopped working. I placed some salmon in to defrost and 10 seconds later completely dead. It wasn't the fuse. I called Panasonic who wasn't interested and gave me a London Number as this company does the servicing. They wanted £42.50 to just come and see what was wrong and then what ever it cost on spares etc to repair. Well what can I say? I thought I'd bought something solid, but this seems to have been a big mistake, no Panasonic for me anymore, Thanks Panasonic for your care :(

I had previously owned a Panasonic combination microwave and that worked perfectly for 10 years so was happy to consider Panasonic again. I bought this model from Sainsburys to replace the old one just beacause the old one was looking a little dated. The microwave unit on this new one has broken after just 3 months.

Google search 'Panasonic microwave problems' and you will see that problems with Panasonic microwaves are common - particularly with the inverter and the microwave generators.

Unfortunately I have lost the receipt so have lost the £120 I paid for it - do the research online and keep the packaging and receipt if you buy this model.
