Family Cooking Made Easy
Cooking for yourself and cooking for a family are not the same things. If you have a family of 3 or 4, cooking will take much more time and effort, especially if you have kids. Most of us think in advance what they are going to cook for family dinner and often either pick the easiest recipes to minimize time or even go to frozen meals from the store. This is where the Panasonic NN-CT57JMBPQ microwave will come into play. Not only will it save you time and effort, but it will also help you greatly diversify your family menu.
Right off the bat, it’s a generously sized model that comes fitted with a large 34cm turntable and offers 27 litres of inner capacity. So, it will easily accommodate larger cooking pans and big-diameter pizzas to treat the whole family. Besides, you’ll have a choice of as many as 29 cooking programmes including a number of automated modes with preset power and time settings, vegetable and rice programmes as well as settings for defrosting foods, heating meals and liquids, etc. All barbecue lovers will appreciate the grill function that will let you cook succulent meats and fleshy veg with an appetizing crust similar to that you’d normally get on the open fire. A unique Junior menu option will help you cook healthy and tasty bites for your little ones. Fruit purees, baked pasta, vegetable fries, and crispy snacks will meet the tastes of the pickiest little eaters. In other words, you just need to select the necessary setting to meet the task at hand and let the microwave do the rest.
To maximize the cooking efficiency and minimize cooking times, this Panasonic microwave has several technological solutions. The inverter technology maintains consistent power level throughout the whole cooking session. Hence, your foods will be cooked in a more gentle and efficient way. The fan-assisted convection technology, at the same time, will evenly distribute the heat and eliminate the risk of burned tops and raw bottoms. To add even more, the model enables combining different functions at a time for optimal energy consumption.
Exceptional functionality and excellent cooking performance aside, another merit of this model from Panasonic is its clever design. At a glance, it looks pretty much like any regular microwave. So, what’s so special about it, you wonder? The secret is in the fan location. While in an ordinary convection oven, the fan is placed on the back, thus, making the back panel extrude, in the slimline design from Panasonic, the fan is mounted at the top next to the heating elements, reducing the overall oven size. So, the appliance will take 20% less countertop space, still providing a lot of cooking space inside. In addition, a brush stainless steel finish and sleek touch controls give the appliance a contemporary look that will easily blend with any modern kitchen design.
All things considered, the Panasonic Slimline is a highly functional full-fledged microwave ideal for family use and will cater to the needs of families with small kiddies.

Healthy Foods Cooked With Taste
Many people consider that healthy diets are very difficult to follow. To a certain extent, they are right since fast-food, store-bought pre-cooked treats, and frozen meals are not allowed due to high fat and sugar content. On the other hand, though, there is nothing special in healthy cooking, especially if you have the right cooking appliances. And the Panasonic Solo microwave is one of such appliances perfectly fit for healthy cooking and more.
First off, the model features 10 automatic programmes, including fresh, frozen, and even canned veggies that can be cooked with no to little oil and fit any slimming diet or healthy menu. You will just have to set the weight of ingredients and let the unit do the rest for you. Six power levels and a built-in timer allow customizing the microwave operation to your individual needs and the recipe at hand as well as giving you the freedom to experiment with different recipes or create your own food combinations. Besides, the power levels are adjusted depending on the size of the portion to save energy and avoid overcooked or overheated meals.
Again, this model is one of those Panasonic microwaves with the inverter technology that ensures the appliance uses 1000 watts of power in the maximum efficient and right way. Instead of turning the maximum power on and off while cooking, the unit ensures consistent cooking power during a whole cooking session. Not only does it ensure more even and faster cooking but also it enables cooking in a more gentle way. To put it simply, without powerful blasts of heat, but rather using milder heat and even heat distribution, all nutrients, vitamins, and natural flavours are retained in your food.
As far as the microwave design is concerned, the model is suitable for both single-serve meals and bulk home cooking. A 28cm turntable can accommodate pretty large pans and plates while 23-litre capacity is large enough to cook in larger portions.
A Smart Cleaning Option
Microwave cleaning is one of the least favourite cleaning tasks for all homemakers. Nobody likes scratching and scrubbing interior surfaces to take off scorched splashes, sticky oil stains, and burned food remnants. Besides, it often happens that after cooking some dishes or ingredients, unpleasant smells continue to linger inside an oven for pretty long. The Panasonic Solo offers a smart and easy solution for both problems. The model has an Aqua Clean option. To ease the cleaning and get rid of foul odours inside the oven, place a cup of water with some lemon juice inside and press the Aqua Clean button. Boiling water will produce steam that will not only deodorise the microwave interior but also soften the dirt and release the stains on the interior surfaces so that you’ll be able to clean them with a mere damp cloth afterwards without the need of chemical detergents.
To conclude, powerful and functional, the Panasonic Solo microwave will find its place in any home kitchen and cater to different cooking needs. Whether you've been already following healthy lifestyle principles for a while or just plan to take this path, it will have you covered as well.

An Alternative to a Conventional Oven
With an oven being a kitchen staple, many homeowners seek to replace it with a more efficient and space-wise cooker and often swap a conventional oven for a feature-rich microwave that can double as a regular oven. The Panasonic NN-CD87KSBPQ is one of them.
First and foremost, with a 34 L capacity and a 36 cm turntable, the model is generously sized and can easily handle family-sized and multi-serving meals, not to mention larger chunks of meat, whole poultry, and bigger pots. In other words, it can handle pretty much anything you’d normally use a common oven for. Meanwhile, 1000 watts of power will make cooking fast and an inbuilt inverter technology will make it maximum efficient, something you'd struggle to achieve using most conventional ovens.

What’s more, you can use microwave technology alone or combine it with other technologies to achieve the best cooking results with different types of dishes.

What Is a Microwave Oven?
The market offers plenty of appliances to help with our household chores. And a microwave oven is one of them. Functional and easy to use, it will help reheat/defrost food and even let you prepare some quick meals.
Some models come with multiple modes and options that will allow you to drastically reduce the time of your cooking and make it completely effortless. You won’t have to stand over the hot stove anymore. Defrost your products first if necessary, put all the products into the oven, select the mode, and the machine will cook a dish for you. Meanwhile, you can take care of other tasks while you wait for it to cook. It is a perfect option for those who don’t enjoy cooking at home or simply have no time for it.

Plus, there is also a huge selection of built-in microwaves on the market, and such devices will become a perfect addition for those who are limited in space. Also, an over-the-range microwave might be a good solution.
There are plenty of manufacturers on the market that produce microwaves. But one of the most famous giants of the electronics industry is the Japanese corporation Panasonic. What makes Panasonic microwaves so popular is that they usually come as combi that can perform much more functions than simply heating and defrosting food, most of them fall in a mid-price range and they all can boast of high quality and durability. That's the reason why Panasonic microwave ovens, as well as most other products, hold a special spot on the market.
So if you want to enjoy delicious healthy home-cooked meals without putting in too much effort, you should definitely think about purchasing a microwave.
What Features to Compare
When buying a microwave, there are some things you should keep in mind. Try to decide in advance what features you expect to see in your microwave, this will make the process of comparing models much easier.
Pretty much all microwave ovens come with an abundance of different functions, so they are suitable for different options. There are some models that allow you to just defrost and heat food. Such ovens are normally on the cheaper side. If you want to use a microwave for multiple purposes, you should definitely check some models that can offer you multiple cooking options. Another important feature that you need to take notice of is the capacity of the device. If you live alone or have a small family and you are not going to cook in it, you can choose a smaller one; an oven with the capacity around 1 cu.ft will be just enough for you. However, if you intend to serve a huge dinner for a large family on a daily basis, it would be more convenient to buy a microwave with a high number of different modes and a bigger capacity.
Next, don’t forget to pay attention to the wattage. The bigger the capacity of your microwave is, the higher the wattage. If you are looking for a powerful device where you can fit a lot of food and prepare it nicely, see that it be higher than 1000 Watts.
Now, let’s not forget about usability. If you want to choose a perfect microwave that will become a great help in the kitchen, take into consideration how fast and convenient it actually cooks food. To begin with, pay attention to the inner surface. Most of the models usually come with enameled surfaces, but microwaves with ceramic surfaces can be found as well. The difference between the two of them is that the enameled ones are easier to clean from all the greasy stains and splatters. The ceramic surfaces, on the other hand, guarantee you a long-lasting service. Moving on, let’s discuss the controls. Microwave ovens can come with a few different types of controls, such as a sensor, mechanical, and push-button. Nowadays most of the models come with sensor control with LED or LCD display. Even though it is not as reliable as mechanic control, it is still very convenient.
