The new Panasonic NN-SE982S Genius Prestige microwave features an electrostatic touch dial with blue LED backlight, which allows you to drag the finger on the circular sensor pad to select menu choices. The modern design also includes a blue LED display adding to its stylish look. In addition to the blue dial control, there are one-touch and quick-access buttons for popcorn, Sensor Cook, Sensor Reheat and Turbo Defrost.
The NN-SE982S Genius Prestige microwave oven features Panasonic Inverter Technology, which provides constant energy flow that variably adjusts the power intensity so food is cooked evenly. Other microwaves use 100% power all the time, but repeatedly turn the energy on and off in lower power settings. Instead, Panasonic consistent and precise heat provides more control while cooking, reheating and defrosting. One-Touch Sensor Cook, adjusts power levels and calculates cooking times automatically, making reheating and cooking a variety of foods even easier, and Inverter Turbo Defrost allows to defrost foods extremely fast by using a sequencing system that incorporates the Inverter low-power delivery feature.
