The Ultimate Cooking Performance
The Panasonic NN-CT552WBPQ 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%.
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 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.
The 1300W Quartz Grill with three settings heats up instantly to brown and cook all traditionally grilled foods – ideal for today’s busy lifestyles.
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.

Like most people I go straight to the poor reviews first= and see what people complain about. "Light & Tinny" on said - well compare old and modern TVs, "Didn't have adjustable feet" - my worktop is level and I doubt if I will ever try heating popcorn in mine. Noisy and the fan runs on -no big deal.
I wonder if some customers expect too much?
I needed to replace my old microwave, had it for years, still works fine but the cabinet was getting a bit rusty and getting flakes of paint in my porridge.
You can buy microwaves now for little money but I thought for a few quid extra I'd buy a combi version. I'm a divorced male and need my satnav to find the kitchen. I can use a regular oven but can't cope with foods that need different temperatures and cooking times. Often I have cooked and eaten the chicken whilst the spuds are still roasting. I'm not looking to compete on Masterchef but a machine like this Panasonic seems to suit me fine. I can weigh stuff and the microwave does its own timing. I can combine micro and convection to speed up things but get an oven-like finish and the machine's display screen must know what I'm like because it tells me what buttons to push and tools to use.
Yes, possibly for the "super-cooks" it's not good enough but for me who basically uses it as a microwave with a few extra options I am well pleased. The oven and grill reach temperature much quicker and saves me having to use the big oven just to heat a small pie or make a fish-finger sandwich. So I reckon it was worth the little bit extra cost.
As the machine is 1000 watt and most cooking guides are based on 850 I had to use the internet to find a time calculator.Read more ›
The delivery was very quick and arrived before the recommended timescale fron Southern Electrics.
I have been very happy with the machine and it does not move around on my work top. It is a lot shallower than my previous one which is a great improvement.
I have used the microwave daily and on occasions I have used the jacket potato button but I have as yet not used any of the other functions.
There is a clock which I was very happy about as I had read somewhere that there was only a minute minder. The numerals are smaller and a little harder to read than my previous one but at least it does have a clock.
Microwaves are not as sturdily built as they used to be but all in all I am very pleased with this machine and would highly recommend it.
It's noisy & rather poorly built. The LCD display would be fine at eye level but on a counter, you get an overall green glow with all of the display faintly lit due to it's poor angle of view.
I tried a jacket potato just using convection & the skin didn't crisp as in a conventional oven. I've also tried a Yorkshire pudding & that failed to rise, although gave the impression it has by forming a crust with a huge air pocket underneath. So as above, forget baking in it.
I've also tried a jacket potato using the dedicated programme of mixed cooking & it was no different to one microwaved only.
But the real concern is that today, it near burst into flames! Tried heating some popcorn & smoke poured out after 90 seconds. The trim holding the door glass in place has melted onto the cavity. Spoke to a Panasonic service agent who said this is known issue when heating "low moisture" items & so not covered by warranty. Thee manual says that microwaving low moisture foods is not recommended but certainly doesn't say you shouldn't do it for fear of setting fire to the kitchen. So many of the things I've done with previous microwaves can't be done in this Panasonic. No heating wheat bags. No warming of the kid's microwavable "hot water bottle" toys. No warming of plates & definitely no popcorn!Read more ›
I was very impressed with the delivery which was very prompt and efficient at no extra charge.
