The Panasonic NN-SD797S is a full-size unit with the dimensions 12” x 21 7/8” x 19 15/16” that can be a countertop or a built-in one, depending on your needs and storage space. The 1.6 cu. ft. interior is spacious enough for large plates and trays and the 15” turntable eases the cooking due to its rotations that assure an even and precise cooking.

This Panasonic sensor microwave introduces customers to a new and ingenious technology called Inverter Technology, which perfects the art of cooking by delivering consistent microwave energy that results in delicious food with excellent taste and texture, without overcooked surface and burnt edges. This innovative technology evenly cooks the food and adjusts the cooking parameters so that the food resulting tastes good and looks good in a short amount of time. The microwave also features an Inverter Turbo Defrost technology that allows you to defrost food even faster than before by using the Inverter low-power delivery feature that offers intense waves that reduce the amount of time normally required to defrost foods. Another feature that you will love about this microwave is the Keep Warm button that delivers a pulsing low microwave power that keeps the food at a constant temperature without overcooking it, until you are ready to serve the food. This eliminates the need for an additional heating in case you did not eat the food right after it was done, which improves the taste of the food and lowers the energy consumption. Also, the One-Touch Genius Sensor Cook and Reheat feature automatically adjusts the power levels and calculates the amount of time necessary for each dish, so that you will cook and heat easier and at the right levels. This microwave also includes a popcorn button that you will find useful on movie nights, and a Quick Minute button that allows you to set or add cooking time from 1-minute up to 10 minutes.
