The Genius Countertop Microwave Oven

With its sleek, stainless-steel door and base and stainless silver body, the powerful Panasonic 1200-Watt microwave makes a stylish and convenient addition to any home, apartment or condo kitchen. This compact, 1.2-cubic-foot microwave features patented Panasonic Inverter technology for consistent, even cooking and delicious results.


The NN-SN686S has sleek, embossed-look membrane keypad and touch controls plus a 13.4-inch turntable to evenly heat and cook breakfast foods, after-school snacks, dinners, appetizers and more. Ideal for singles, busy professionals and on-the-go families, the Panasonic NN-SN686S provides both manual and automatic cooking options, plus an interior big enough for a 13-inch casserole dish and a stylish exterior guaranteed to complement any kitchen décor.


Better Cooking with Inverter Technology

Patented Inverter Technology delivers a seamless stream of cooking power even at low settings. With the continuous, linear output of Inverter, not only will your food be easily and quickly prepared, you can confidently cook, and even poach, braise and steam foods to perfection. Just as important, the essential vitamins and nutrients you expect in all your meals will be retained.


Great Cooking, No Guesswork

With one-touch sensor cook and reheat, Panasonic takes the guesswork out of creating great meals by automatically setting power levels and adjusting cooking, defrosting and reheating times. The sensor measures the amount of steam naturally produced during cooking and signals the oven's advanced microprocessor to automatically calculate the remaining cooking time at any power level for optimum results.


Sensor Inverter Turbo Defrost

The microwave oven is also designed with Turbo Defrost to help prepare food more efficiently than any Panasonic microwave before it. This advanced feature utilizes a microwave sequencing system based on Inverter's continuous-power delivery method to thaw foods more evenly and quickly.


Sleek Controls

This 1200W high-power microwave represents the best in microwave cooking today. Intelligent, embossed-look membrane keypad and controls provide 14 preset menu options for everyday meals and snacks, plus the manual controls you need for more adventurous menus. Controls and sensors automatically set power levels, monitor and adjust cooking time and when done, keep foods warm until ready to serve.


Added Conveniences

More everyday advantages include a large 13.4-inch diameter glass turntable and a Quick :30 touch control to quickly reheat foods and beverages, and add extra prep time when needed in half-minute increments. A handy delay start feature, 3-stage cooking, bright, time-of-day clock and versatile timer provide even more conveniences. An easy to set child safety lock is also provided to keep young hands from operating the oven.


Maximum Interior, Minimal Footprint

The smarter, more compact transformer and capacitor that comprise the Inverter power unit occupy less interior space than other brands to provide a larger space for cooking. These smaller, more efficient units are also up to 8 pounds lighter than conventional microwave components. All of which adds up to less weight overall and a minimal exterior footprint when placed on a counter.


Keep Warm Feature

A handy keep warm touch control keeps foods warm up to 30 minutes after food is prepared. A steady delivery of low microwave power maintains food temperatures at a constant level without overcooking. So, foods like stew, gravy and desserts remain warm in the oven for up to half an hour after cooking.


Optional Matching Trim Kit

This microwave can be used on any countertop or installed in a wall or cabinetry using an optional matching trim kit NN-TK621SS .

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
