Anyone who’s on the lookout for the best countertop microwave ought to seriously consider the Panasonic NN-SNL75LW stainless steel microwave oven. It is one of those all round functioning microwaves that look good, has great features, and is sold at a very affordable price. The countertop microwave relies on inverter technology to get your food evenly cooked, and it is different than that which is used in a regular microwave because instead of using 100% of microwave energy in pulses to cook your food, the microwave relies on a continuous stream of regulated energy, making it a lit more efficient in terms of both time and energy. The NN-SNL75W may have these and a lot more features in tow, but is this enough to make it the best microwave around? Let’s find out.

Why We Like It – Panasonic Countertop Microwave

The NN-SN75W Panasonic Countertop Microwave, is a reliable, inexpensive, and full featured microwave that’s got all you need to prepare all the best meals that you’d want to. The microwave’s control panel features a wide range of one touch functions that will be sure to cut down significantly on your cook time so that you spend less time preparing and more time enjoying your meal.

  • Cyclonic inverter technology ensures food is well cooked
  • Automated sensor cooking
  • 1 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty
  • No auto defrost feature

Power & Performance

At 1250 Watts, the NN-SNL75LW Panasonic microwave is certainly not one of the most powerful countertop microwaves around, but it is a heavy duty appliance that can get a large variety of foods cooked at a much faster cooking time. You can also expect the same level of efficiency from the NN-SN97JS Panasonic Stainless Steel Microwave as it also comes with the same wattage, though its interior capacity is slightly smaller at about 1.6 cu ft vs the NN-SNL75LW’s 2.2 cubic feet. These two microwave ovens both offer 3 different power levels for popping popcorn, and also rely on cyclonic inverter technology where the microwave radiates energy in a three dimensional, circular pattern so as to heat food more evenly.


How durable an appliance will be often depends on how well you’ll use it. If you take care of the NN-SN75LW compact microwave, you’ll find that it works great, and that you should expect to use it for up to even 10 years without any major issues. Just like the NN-SD945S Panasonic countertop microwave, this Panasonic stainless steel microwave is also backed by a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty, so that in case you come across some parts of it that seem to be faulty, feel free to call in and have them replace any problematic parts.

Ease of Use

Instead of hopping online to find out what kind of cooking times or microwave power required to whip up your favourite meal, what you can do instead is put your food in and let its sensor cook feature figure that out for you. It’ll be able to detect the food you’ve put in, and automatically set up the appropriate power settings to get your food ready. Inside this 1250 Watt microwave, you’ll find a 15 inch turntable that’s large enough to accomodate large containers, and this makes it great for preparing family size meals. Defrosting also gets way faster thanks to the microwave’s turbo defrost feature, and with its sensor reheat button, you’ll get to reheat pre cooked foods at just the right temperature. Once all the cooking is done, the microwave keeps the food warm through its keep warm feature, until when you’re ready to take it out of the microwave. The child lock safety feature is an added advantage in any kitchen, try the Dacor Microwave.

Additional Features & Versatility

If you want to prevent your children from messing around with the microwave, you can activate the child lock feature on the NN-SN75LW microwave, though this is a feature that you can also find on the NN-SN68S Panasonic Microwave Ovens Countertop. What you won’t find there is a silent feature, that you can use to shut off the beep feature especially when you’d not want to have it make any noise at night.


The best countertop microwaves right now rely on inverter technology over convection cooking so that the cooking power used to prepare a meal is significantly reduced, and this also leads to a significant reduction on your electricity bill. The microwave also features 15 auto cook options to help you cook faster, and offers up to 3 power level options that you can use to fix yourself some popcorn.

Panasonic Countertop Microwave Wrap Up

With all these top tier features, it’ll be very difficult to argue that this Panasonic microwave isn’t one of the best microwaves around that you can get for less than $200. It offers a lot more than you can get from a regular convection microwave, and with up to 15 preset smart cooking options, you won’t have to do any guesswork anymore as you prepare your next meal.
