Our Panasonic CT-559WBPQ Combi Microwave Review

Panasonic CT-559WBPQ

After a reliable yet cost effective combi microwave oven?  The CT-559WBPQ from Panasonic offers 27 litres of capacity, 1000w of power and is finished in a smart white exterior. It's slim profile means it takes up 20% less space than the majority of other microwaves on the market, thus saving kitchen space.

The convection oven mode provides 1300 watts of power, and cooks well - the cooking temperature ranges from100-250C degrees.  The grill mode also provides the 1300 watts of power, and is fast to heat up.  You'll find yourself using your regular grill and oven a lot less once you start using this appliance.

It features 10 different auto weight programs, which comes in extremely handy, and saves having to calculate cooking times.

Other features include a child lock facility, and a stainless steel lining for easy cleaning.

The buttons are pretty well labelled, and the display is clear even in a brightly lit environment.

As with the rest of the Panasonic range, the Chaos defrost system works extremely well, and defrosts without cooking the food.

Overall it is very reasonably priced, and cooks well - all of our testers were positive about this model.  Reliability shouldn't be an issue - in our experience Panasonic appliances work extremely well, and last a long time.

Finally, if you're still unsure, this model won best buy in Which's 2010 survey - trust us, it's good.

  1. Jane Burgess

    Please could you tell me if the grill is the heat which is used when in convection mode, or is the grill separate?
