Panasonic NN-K35HWMBPQ Microwave : Versatile

So easy to use and clean my kids love it :).

I’ve never had a combination microwave and grill before so i was intrigued with this offering. My old microwave still works well but is starting to look a bit tatty so this was a perfect opportunity to try out this technology. This microwave is almost identical in size to my old one so it fits in well. The front panel is reasonably intuitive but i had to check the manual on a few things i wasn’t sure about. Incidentally the manual is pretty good compared to many that you receive these days. Obviously like all microwaves it’s good at defrosting, reheating, etc. But the feature that i was desperate to try out was the combination of microwave and grill. I had a frozen home-made cottage pie that seemed the perfect test as it’s something that usually takes 30 minutes in an oven after it has defrosted. Obviously i could just heat it in a regular microwave but it’s not the same without the potato topping being browned off. I cooked the cottage pie through with the microwave then left it under the grill.

Easy to use, just press 2 buttons and your plate with food is warm (that my main use). It is quiet, powerful and not very big. The exterior is easy to clean too.

This is a great value microwave with a grilling function included from a well-established manufacturer. It was supplied quickly via amazon prime in a branded box which contained the microwave, a metal grill stand, the glass platter and runners and some well-written instructions and a 12-month guarantee. The microwave is compact measuring 40. 2 high, with a white finish, bright green led display and dark grey interior. The door pulls open and the glass tray and runner has to be located before use. The time is easy to set and the touch controls are logical and beep on being pressed. While the instructions are good i do not think there is enough clarity on using the metal grill stand for those unfamiliar with microwaves that it should only be used with the grilling function. The grill is a quartz grill on the roof of the unit. While not a substitute for a full-size grill it can be used on its own to grill items or in conjunction with the microwave to provide colour and texture to items being cooked. The microwave is 800w rated and cooks well and there are a number of program and timing options to cook a wide variety of food items from meat to vegetables as well as warming and defrosting. These are well documented in the instructions although there is no cookbook included. However, there is such a wealth of information on the web so this is not really a problem these days. Overall this is a well designed and good quality product that should provide many years of service.

It looks good, it is very intuitive to use. I haven’t used the grill yet. The only criticism i have is that the feet are a bit slippy otherwise a very good product.

Saved me a trip to the next town over to get one. Heats evenly and is easy to use. I’ve used panosonic microwaves since the 90s. The only issue i have is the feet supporting the microwave do not grip the counter top. Any buttons pushed scoots the microwave. Even opening the door moves the microwave. If you tried to jerk the door open, you would pull it off the counter.

This is a great microwave, its very easy to use and it works perfectly so far. I can make my pizza without too much fussy now.

This panasonic nn-k35hwmbpq microwave with grill 23 litre, i believe represents good value, it’s a smaller microwave, and has a smaller footprint, compared to another microwave in the 23-litre capacity. It is a quick and easy to use microwave and grill combi oven, however, for me the combi times and grill usage was hard to figure out, with what timings were to use for other goods. I found that there are a few forums on the net that will help you, from other people who have used the same oven for other types of foods. Nonetheless still a good affordable and not too heavy microwave. It should fit in a kitchen and blend-in with silver/grey appliances that are already there. I have used this microwave to reheat, defrost and cook various types of food and the performance was good. In addition, the food tasted nice as it warmed up well throughout without cold spots/areas. In general, this is a really smart looking and well-designed microwave. It does well in reheating and defrosting. The heating performance is fast and effective, the build is durable and the design is a tad smaller.

This is a nicely designed microwave. I have a set of dinner plates which are larger than usual and some, smaller microwaves, do not fit them. I was pleased to find that they fitted comfortably inside this, so was a good size for me. Indeed, the turntable size is 340mm. This is a combined microwave and grill, and is a little complicated to use at first, if you are not used to it. However, the instruction book is very detailed and easy to follow. I have gradually become more comfortable with the different features and i think the grill is an extremely useful extra. The display, and auto features, are also useful and easy to follow. Overall, i was pleased with this. It defrosts quickly and the results seem even.

Nice colour microwave – which matches extremely well with my pale grey units despite the microwave being white. In terms of size – do check the footprint because you can get smaller microwaves, but this is a good fit for us as it takes our large dinner plates and has sufficient space for some of her jugs. Not used the grill function yet but it is great to have as a backup in case our main oven breaks. Finally everything was well packaged.

Wonderful microwave glad i bought it highly recommended it.

A good all round microwave and grill.

Out of this box, this is a great microwave which is easy to set up and use. It was simply a matter of clearing a space, plugging it in and setting the clock. The unit’s control panel is intuitive and easy to use and it is easy to switch between microwave and grill and set cook time and intensity. Be warned that it is heavy, but this also means that it won’t slip.

Our old microwave was about 15 years old and only ever a cheap model to begin with, so i was happy to be offered this one to review. Having been using it for several months now, i have to say that—while it cooks food fine—it doesn’t seem like a significant improvement on the older one. I asked my partner her views and her response was simply ‘it’s a microwave’ which largely sums it up. Despite being newer and more expensive than our previous one, the only obvious advantage is its having a grill function (which i’ll come to later). It does, however, have a couple of downsides that still annoy me. First, the feet don’t have a lot of grip. Maybe this depends on your worktop surface, but the microwave slides around rather easily, when you’re simply trying to open the door or even press the buttons. Second, on the subject of the buttons, i find programming it more fiddly than necessary. Our old microwave had a numbered keypad so, if you wanted five minutes and thirty seconds, you could type in 5-3-0 and start. On this one, you have to add time in blocks so, to get 5:30, it’s +1 minute, +1 minute, +1 minute, +1 minute, +1 minute, +30 seconds.

We are not heavy users of microwaves, so the unexpected death of our old, and i do mean ‘old’ model was not a cause of much concern, but this multi-featured and well designed appliance really is suiting us well so far. Though the power rating is identical to the previous machine, this one seems much quicker. The grill is a bonus rather than an essential for us, but in its try out worked well. I like the presets which seem much more intuitive than many machines i’ve come across in, say, holiday homes, and frankly cannot find anything negative to say. A great easy to use machine.

Panasonic NN-K35HWMBPQ Microwave with Grill 23 Litre, White

Not easy to programme particularly for older people. Glass plate moves off the ring too easily. Looks neat and easy to clean.

I’ve been using this now for a couple of months and it’s a fine piece of kit. Does everything you’d expect and the grill is great for bacon.
