The Ultimate Cooking Performance

Slimline20%Saving
Space saving

The Panasonic NN-CT579SBPQ 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.

SLIM DESIGN 20% Space Saving

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 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 TECH

Inverter Technology

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 a quality 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 weigh approximately 3kg less than a traditional microwave.

Troubleshooting:
Demo Mode is showing on the display

If the clock button is pressed more than once, (normally three times depending on the model, please check operating manual for instructions) Demo Mode is activated. The clock button will need to be pressed the same amount of times again to deactivate Demo Mode. (This function can be used to experiment with the programs without using any micro power).

Microwave is not heating

Check to see if the Demo Mode has been activated (the letter D will show up in the display), if it is not in this mode then there is a fault and the unit will need to go to the nearest ASC.

The microwave is still running after use

There is a fan which will continue running after use, this helps to cool down the electrical br />components. It will run for a couple of minutes after use and it is quite normal. However, if the turntable continues to rotate during this procedure then the unit should be referred to the nearest ASC.

The word ‘lock’ or ‘L’ is displayed on the screen

The child lock has been set on the machine, you will need to deactivate it by pressing the stop/ cancel button three times (the number of presses may depend on the model of the microwave, so please check the operating manual for further assistance). You can also activate this feature by pressing the stop/cancel button the same amount of times.

Warm air and steam is coming out from the oven door/between the glass panels and condensation is forming

The microwave does not have an airtight seal between the inner and outer glass panels of the door. This is to allow expansion during cooking and prevents the glass from cracking. Steam and warm air can escape from the door. This is normal and no microwave energy is present in the air that is escaping. Please make sure that the door seals and inner glass are kept clean to allow correct airflow and minimize the amount of condensation forming between the glass. Condensation forming is not an indication of a fault.

My microwave smells of previously cooked food, how can I remove these smells?

Strong cooking smells may linger within your oven. They can be removed by squeezing lemon juice into a bowl of cold water and heating on high power for several minutes to allow the steam to freshen the microwave. Alternatively cooking with highly flavoured products such as wine, vinegar or lemon juice will reduce the smells.

How do I set the clock?

This varies from model to model; unfortunately there is not one set procedure. Please refer to the operating manual for the microwave.

Why has the door melted on my microwave?

This can be due to a low load; modern microwave ovens have considerable heating power, which can attack the oven interior if used with an insufficient load. If the microwave is operated in a low load or no load condition, this excess energy will be absorbed and focused at the weakest point of the cavity or door. Please be advised that this energy will not normally focus at this point with a normal requirement of food material in the cavity. Low load items are items of food that contain little or no liquid.

How do I replace the bulb?

Unfortunately the bulb cannot be replaced by the customer but only by an ASC.

The microwave is causing interference with the TV/Radio or Wireless products

There can be interference with TV’s and Radio’s whilst the oven is in use. The interference is similar to that caused by other small appliances, and also natural microwaves that are in the atmosphere at all times. It does not indicate that there is a problem with the machine.

The external cavity gets hot after cooking

This is quite normal, especially if they have a Micro/Grill or Convection model and have been using the Convection, Grill or Combination functions.

There are blue sparks inside the microwave;

This will be down to arcing, which can occur if metal has been used in the microwave or if the incorrect weight has been entered. Also if using the accessories, if they are damaged in any way this may cause arcing also.

The microwave cuts out whilst in use

Switch the unit off at the mains, and check the fuse in the plug. If no problem is found then the unit will need to be referred to the nearest ASC.

There is a piece of card inside my microwave on the right hand side

Do not remove this card, it is the waveguide cover. It has to stay within the microwave as this is where the energy enters the cavity. If removed or broken, the part can be purchased from Panasonic and fitted by the consumer.

If I have a convection model, do the accessories need to be left inside on pre-heat mode?

The accessories do need to be left in the microwave whilst preheating.

When burning off the oil in a convection or grill model, do I leave the accessories inside the machine?

No, all accessories must be removed from the microwave when going through the burning oil process.

    Panasonic well up to standard here- exactly the same size internally as my previous combo, but so much smaller. I couldn't be more pleased.

    I bought this product to reflect that we do not use normal oven as much since the children left home.

    We have owned for about 4 weeks and we have only used our traditional oven once in that period.

    it is very easy to keep an eye on the cooking since it is on the worktop and the inside is very well lit. We use the convection feature the most and the oven pre heats very quickly. We have used the combination feature for jacket potatoes and this took only 20 mins for two perfect pototoes.

    It is compact on the outsize but inside this is a comparatively large machine.

    I am very pleased with this purchase.

    This is a great combination over, includes grill, convection oven and microwave. It comes in proper stainless steel which was not totally clear from the product info, which was what we wanted. It has a 1000 watt microwave and a convection fan oven up to 220 celcius; you can also use a combination of methods. We use it almost everyday and have built it into a housing, it looks just right above our regular oven.

    After reading many other reviews for several microwaves I chose this one. My old one which had lasted some 15 years at least, had just stopped working. I decided to try a Combi oven & grill and so far so good. I have used the convection oven & microwave and am happy with the performance of both. I haven't yet used the grill.
    Overall I think this was a good buy, it looks smart and fits into my kitchen well. It is compact but the inner oven size is large. It wobbled a little at first but one leg was easily adjusted.
    It was delivered quickly (despite my living on the Isle of Man) and was well packaged.
    I would recommend this oven to others.

    Having been the very satisfied owner of a Panasonic slimline combi which gave good almost daily service for 9 years before turntable gave out, I had no hesitation in buying a replacement from its successor range.
    The first thing I noticed was that the build quality wasn't quite up to my previous oven. The 8pt grey text against stainless steel isn't great for older eyes either. The worst 'improvement' though has to be the grill which functions throughout the convection cycle with the aid of the fan. My previous model used it only as a preheat function, so I was able to bake a variety of dishes without worrying about them turning to carbon. Whatever you do, don't cook pizza on the higher shelf position or you'll end up with a blackened frisbee!
    I contacted Panasonic regarding this, as I thought I had a faulty appliance but it turns out that this is the new way of convection baking and they advised me that I should cover dishes which require any length of cooking with foil after 10-15 minutes to avoid burning. I fail to see how this can be a considered improvement on the previous model, more of a production cost-cutting measure if you ask me.
    The upshot is, it's still a good combi oven for most everyday dishes but if you want to bake a large cake forget it!

    Bought this to replace 8 year old version where the microwave function broke as was very happy with quality and ease of use. New model seems same build quality and easy to use functiionality but the oven function uses the grill element to provire heat which means that oven is no longer available as a stand alone feature, equating to the combination mode.

    Furtunatley the 2 racks from the older model fit perfectly (you only get one rack with this one) enabling us to cover the tallest rack with foil to stop the direct heat from the grill burning the food.

    This issue is a fairly major flaw if you plan to use the oven. Panasonic should revert to the previous design and charge a few £ more and would get great reviews as otherwise the is a great piece of kit.

    My combi oven looks very smart in stainless steel. It is very versatile; I can grill food, roast, defrost and bake perfect potatoes. The instruction booklet contains some lovely recipes.
