We own a microwave and honestly, we could probably live without it. We use the stove or oven for most of our cooking needs. Sometimes we wonder if we'd use the microwave more if we didn't hear such awful things related to health and microwave cooking.
The Panasonic Inverter Microwave Oven mimics the technology of a traditional oven resulting in better controlled cooking and tastier food.
Inverter technology provides an always-on, constant energy flow and adjusts the intensity for each meal selection. The constant and precise heat ensures the edges will not overcook when you cook, reheat or defrost meals. We can't tell you how many times we've defrosted chicken in the microwave and the edges were cooked while the center was still frozen!
A downfall of boiling and steaming is that they can suck the nutrients right out of foods, specifically vegetables. With the inverter technology, more nutrients remain in the vegetables after cooking. Compared to steaming and boiling, the inverter microwave cooking method preserved the most nutrients.
The Panasonic Inverter Microwave Oven packs a big punch, but doesn't come at a cheap price. The prices range from $160-$700.
