The Ultimate Cooking Performance

Slimline = 20%Saving

The Panasonic NN-CT562MBPQ is made for kitchens with limited space and combines the efficiency of a microwave with the traditional browning and roasting of a conventional oven to ensure that your meal choice is endless. The convection oven offers a huge temperature range, 100-220°C, which ensures the success when cooking anything from meringues, cakes and pastries to Yorkshire Puddings and roast joints. In addition, the versatility that the Convection Oven and Grill provide, results in many greater options and methods for your preparation of food, while significantly reducing the cooking time by half to two thirds. The sleek and stylish stainless steel is not only for aesthetics but also hygiene and ease of use; it is a lot simpler to clean than other material.

Space Saving Slim Design

Space in your kitchen is always at a premium, especially when preparing ingredients. The Slimline Combination Oven with a large 27 Litre Dish Capacity takes up to 20% less space on the work surface than a comparable Combination Oven because Panasonic have moved the fan to the roof of the oven rather than at the back, reducing the depth of the oven by 20%.

Inverter Technology

Inverter Technology
Inverter Technology
Chaos Defrost
Chaos Defrost

Available on most Panasonic microwave ovens, the conventional and bulky transformer and capacitor components are replaced with a compact circuit board which provides many user-friendly benefits such as:

  • Constant Power: Most microwaves operate on constant power, when High or Full is selected. Other power levels are achieved by the microwave pulsing on and off. Panasonic Inverter technology gives constant energy on medium and low power settings – providing an alternative cooking process for your food.
  • Even Cooking: When cooking or reheating, Inverter technology ensures is heated evenly – improving texture and flavour.
  • Lighter Ovens: Microwaves using the Inverter technology can weigh approximately 3kg less than a traditional microwave.

Chaos Defrost

Chaos Defrost uses random pulses of microwave energy to reduce defrosting times. Not only does this speed up the defrosting process, but is also produces very even defrosting allowing the food to be used immediately for cooking.

Quartz Grill

The 1300W Quartz Grill with three settings heats up instantly to brown and cook all traditionally grilled foods – ideal for today’s busy lifestyles.

Auto Programs

With 13 Auto Weight programs the user has many choices. A selection of foods can be cooked automatically by selecting from the auto-weight options available, just simply enter the weight and the correct cooking mode, saving the user having to look up the correct procedures for their food. By offering such simplicity; time and energy can be saved by optimising the microwave energies.

The Ideas Kitchen

Product Description

Space in the modern kitchen is always at a premium, especially on the work surface. Microwave ovens compete with an ever increasing range of new appliances, designed to make life easier. Recognising this fact, Panasonic gave themselves to the challenge to reduce the size of one of their best selling microwaves - without sacrificing the capacity of the oven. By completely re-designing the mechanics of the microwave, Panasonic have reduced the depth of the oven by 20% (when compared to an equivalent Panasonic model). Repositioning the fan system in the roof of the oven, rather than at its rear has dramatically reduced the depth of the oven. This means that you can enjoy the advantage of microwave, grill and convection heating in more compact kitchens, which may feature narrower, 500mm work surfaces.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Panasonic Combi microwave 17 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
Much more space saving than the previous model because the cooling fan is in the roof not behind the cooking area, which is a big plus as the cooking area is the same. The price has fallen a lot compared to the previous model. The controls are clearer to see, simpler, and so easier to use. On the negative side, the machine has a far more 'plasticy' look to it and the door catch seems very notchy, not the smooth level of operation we are used to from Panasonic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 3 Dec 2012
By red0209 TOP 500 REVIEWER
This is a superb combination microwave oven in my opinion, with several different features and settings which make cooking with it straightforward. The main positive for me is that everything I've cooked so far has been cooked evenly. So many times with other microwave ovens, I cooked things to find part of it really hot and other parts cold. Combination ovens are generally much larger than this one, so it's great that this doesn't take up too much space. Despite this, the inside of this microwave is deceptively big, with a large plate. The instructions are quite comprehensive and easy to follow, although the cooking times may not be entirely accurate, so a bit of trial and error may be required there.

Things to be aware of are that the inside of the oven can get extremely hot, so be careful when putting your hands inside. The door can also get very hot when used on the oven setting. The digital display possibly isn't the easiest to read from a distance, particularly if there is sunlight shining on it. The numbers on the control panel could also be a little clearer, and the keypad perhaps a little more responsive. The fan and turntable are not quiet, but then you're never going to get a microwave oven that is totally quiet anyway.

I bought this particular Panasonic model because my previous (much cheaper and simpler) Panasonic microwave oven lasted over ten years with fairly frequent use. I've had this combination oven for just under a year now and everything has worked as it should and I've had no problems whatsoever. I'd happily recommend this Panasonic combination oven to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars High-Tech and Multi-Function 27 Dec 2012
By Katya
Verified Purchase
This microwave offers grill and convection oven settings, offering many more options to cook food than a more typical microwave. There are a few drawbacks (despite the high rating I've given it): the fan when food has finished cooking is quite loud and obtrusive, but unless food had been cooking for a long while this cuts out fairly soon. Also, because of it offering grill and convection oven options, there are a couple of accessories which you'll need to find space in the kitchen for.

However, been working excellently so far and a good buy at the cost.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Disappointing. 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this to replace a previous Panasonic microwave (the earlier version of the same model) that I had been using happily for many years. I have to say that I am disappointed at the lack of quality in the newer model.
The first one that arrived worked twice and then died - fortunately it was quickly replaced by Amazon and the second is still going strong but the build quality is poor as are the accessories supplied with the machine are also of a far poorer quality than I had with the earlier machine. At nearly 160 I expected better but I guess that is progress for you.
My advice to perspective customers would be to try and see the machine for real before you buy - and make up your own minds if you think it is worth the money!

1.0 out of 5 stars A mistake 29 Oct 2013
By georgie
Verified Purchase
I thought this was an upgrade on my old Panasonic Inverter, sadly deceased. Unfortunately it is a very, very poor imitation. The build quality is poor and it is so light I have had to put a slip mat under it to stop it sailing across the worktop every time I press a button. The oven is basically a grill with a fan and everything has to be covered to prevent burning. Also the change from two level 'baking' to only one reduces it usefulness still further. I am very sorry I bought this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks good 30 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
This was bought as a replacement for a very similar model that was over 16 years old. Quite light weight for a combi oven & looks good in silver. Works well, although I have not cooked a joint/chicken yet. I miss the cook/ re-heat pastry preset button which was very useful for party food, however this oven still cooks that type of food well and there is a fairly comprehensive guide in the book that comes with it. I hope this oven lasts as long as the previous one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic Microwave 26 Sep 2012
By Steve
Verified Purchase
Excellent value for money, I bought this to replace a similar older model that we had for several years and just reached the end of its natural life. I find Panasonic very reliable and would recommend this particular model with its chaos defrost and oven.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works, but needs improvements. 14 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
Door isn't quite flush with the rest of the unit and when it's opened it doesn't open fully so had to pull it open a bit more.

But it seems to work ok.

Lost two stars.
