Panasonic Microwave 1.3 Cu ft NN-SD69LS
The Panasonic Model NN-SD69LS is a powerful 1100-watt, 1.3 cu ft. capacity, countertop microwave oven. The rotating glass turntable is a large 12.75”. The approximate dimensions are: Exterior: 21.25” wide x 16.5” deep x 12.0” tall – Interior: 13.875” wide x 14.75” deep x 8.375” tall. The NN-SD69LS is a hefty 43 lbs.
Features with dedicated control buttons include 3 level Popcorn setting, Sensor Reheat, Sensor Cook, 10 Power Level settings, Auto Defrost and Keep Warm and Add 30 Seconds. The cooking tray rotates whenever the oven is in operation. Tray rotation cannot be switched off to accommodate large square or rectangular platters or casseroles. The audible, end-of-cycle beeping alert feature also cannot be switched off.
The large, white LED display is bright and easy to read from across the room. None of the function labels are on the display and none of the switches are illuminated. Most of the labeling lacks contrast and is not particularly easy to read. The Auto Defrost feature requires determining the weight of the frozen food and using a Conversion Chart and Defrosting Chart to estimate the correct “Auto-Defrost” setting.
We found it to be more effort than it was worth. Sensor Cooking and Sensor Reheating rely upon the detection of steam in the oven cavity, produced when food is heated. If the door is opened to actually check the temperature/doneness of the food, the steam vents out and the “Sensor Cooking / Reheating” is defeated and canceled. We found this feature to be of little to no benefit, as well.
Every microwave oven that we have owned or used since the 1970s has had a digital touchpad for setting cooking time, power levels, timer functions, etc. Many also included additional “feature buttons” or other dedicated function buttons, to augment the numerical touchpad and facilitate the ease of use and convenience of the microwave oven. The Panasonic NN-SD69LS, and several other Panasonic microwave oven models, deviate from that standard.
