Panasonic NN-CT870WBPQ Features

The Panasonic NN-CT870WBPQ combination microwave oven is a powerful model. With a microwave output of 1000W, it cooks food quickly and efficiently. The large 32L capacity also means this is a genuine alternative to a conventional oven (although you should check the size of your dinner plates and casserole dishes before you buy).

A useful feature is “two level cooking”. This allows you to use two shelves when cooking with the convection oven, providing a greater effective capacity and allowing two dishes to be roasted or baked simultaneously.

Other features include a push button door, six microwave power levels and “Chaos defrost.” The latter is a setting for rapidly defrosting foods much faster than competing models. The Panasonic NN-CT870WBPQ also comes with automatic convection programs, turbo bake and a child lock.

  • Convection oven temperature range: 100-250 degrees Celsius

  • 1500W grill power
  • Interior is made from enamel for easy cleaning
  • Fan assisted convection oven
  • Multiple stage memory system
