The Panasonic NN-GD371SBPQ 23L compact microwave with grill is a powerful, 950W model with a stainless steel design.

Panasonic NN-GD371SBPQ Features

When looking at the Panasonic NN-GD371SBPQ stainless steel microwave’s feature list the first thing that stands out is its high power output. The average for most microwaves is 800W, so a 950W output is a significant improvement. This should allow the NN-GD371SBPQ to cook faster than other models. The grill, which is a quartz model, is also a healthy 1000W.

Panasonic love to come up with strange names for features that are otherwise standard, but the “Chaos Defrost” function is actually worthy of a new name. Anyone who’s used a microwave for defrosting knows the frustration of a frozen middle and cooked exterior. Chaos defrost is designed to prevent this from happening, while speeding up the overall defrost process.

Another unique feature of Panasonic microwaves such as the Panasonic NN-GD371SBPQ is “Inverter Technology.” According to Panasonic, this replaces normal transformers with capacitor electronic components. This has a number of benefits, including even cooking and constant power.

Other features of the Panasonic NN-GD371SBPQ 950W digital microwave include a child lock, 13 different automatic programs and six power levels. The microwave doesn’t have an automatic weight cook function though. The grill is a useful addition, but if you don’t plan on using it then a similar model is the Panasonic NN-SD251WBPQ which is around £40 cheaper but is a solo microwave.

Overview of features:

  • Powerful 950W microwave
  • 23L capacity
  • Quartz grill (1000W)
  • Six different power levels
  • Stainless steel design
  • Child lock
  • 13 automatic programs

Panasonic NN-GD371SBPQ Reviews

The Panasonic NN-GD371SBPQ digital microwave with grill currently has relatively high average rating, although this is only from a small number of reviews. Most people appear to be happy with their purchase.

One reviewer mentions that the Panasonic NN-GD371SBPQ is easy to use and comes with a handy instruction booklet. Contrary to our initial opinion, reviewers say that the microwave is an attractive model that looks better than the promotional materials.

Other positive comments include that the microwave’s dials are easy to use and see, it has a compact design that leaves plenty of work surface space and is fast to reheat or cook. Reviewers are also happy with the grill function, which means the microwave has far more scope for cooking different types of foods.

The lack of an automatic cooking based on weight function isn’t a huge issue, although it’s a useful feature to have. One reviewer mentions that while the stainless steel finish is attractive, it’s also easily marked by fingerprints or grease.

Panasonic NN-GD371SBPQ Conclusion

We think that Panasonic NN-GD371SBPQ digital microwave with grill looks like an excellent option in this price category. If you need a microwave that’s easy to use, has a grill and is fast to cook or reheat, it’s definitely one to consider.
