This feature packed Panasonic microwave oven offers unrivalled flexibility and convenience with combination steam and grill cooking functions, as well as 28 auto-weight programs.
Food is cooked by steam to retain moisture and succulence and can be browned using the grill or convection mode all in one stage. Cooking with steam helps to retain the flavour, texture and colour of food. Not only that, it also offers health benefits as fewer vitamins, minerals and nutrients are lost than with dry-heat cooking. This often means it isn’t necessary to add salt or oil.
There are 8 auto steam only programs for you to choose from and 8 auto steam with microwave programs. Select the category and set the weight, the oven will determine the steam level/microwave and cooking time automatically. It also has the added advantage of a steam shot feature. This allows you to add up to 3 minutes of steam during cooking to enhance heat distribution and aid the rising process of breads, cakes and pastries.
With two level convection cooking and a flatbed design, cooking for a large family is made possible. The removal of the turntable and the catalytic lining also means cleaning is stress free – just wipe clean.
