After owning this microwave for a couple of years and light use, only my wife and I, the door would not latch sometimes, now recently it is impossible to get it to latch and I now have to buy a new one. It certainly won't be another Panasonic.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I had to buy a microwave early in the morning to replace my Sharp that died before work. Found this at a DIY store near my home right as they opened. It wasn't the cheapest, nor the most expensive. Works better than expected for a spontaneous purchase.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I am shocked that Consumer Reports is recommending this Panasonic microwave. i just signed up with Consumer Reports to read microwave reviews. I currently own a Panasonic inverter microwave. It is 7 years old. I have used it for 3 years. (It was in the condo I bought.) The door stopped latching. The microwave operates fine, but I now realize this door problem goes back to 2007. Shame on Panasonic. And shame on Consumer Reports for recommending a product that has no shelf life.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
