Advantages Reliable; Easy to clean; Simple to use
Disadvantages Doesn't have a digital display; doesn't have the ability to grill or any more complex functions
I certainly don't like washing up, and not having the space for a dishwasher means everything gets washed by hand in our house. Microwave meals are of course lazy and usually nutritionally poor value, but once in a while (or if I'm tempted by an M & S dine in for 2 offer) all good intentions go out of the window. It's not all bad though. The plastic trays the ready meals come in can now be recycled so at least I'm not adding to the landfill problem.
This is an 800 watt microwave, which means precious little to me except that it heats (or cooks) food quicker than those which are only 700 watts. In a practical sense, this shaves anything from 15 seconds up to a couple of minutes off the time it would take me using a 700 watt microwave. In the big scheme of things it's hardly an energy saver but it does save on the tedium of waiting.
What you'll also get with this microwave is a small manual. Aside from the lowdown on it's technical specs, Panasonic have also included a fairly useful selection of recipes. Everything from soups and fish and meat dishes to some desserts is included, for those who still want to eat relatively healthily without resorting to using an oven. Although they sound relatively easy meals, I haven't tried them.
