Hi Grey Shrek,

Thanks for confirming the worst-case scenario.  I agree with you,  I bought a GE.  Don't tell Moostafa.  I just needed a countertop with a trim kit, and once you rule out Panasonic, very few large countertops fit the bill.

Hi Goosegog,

Don't do it man!   If you don't believe me, and Grey Shrek, read the litany of comments on this web page:

http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/3765/panasonic_12_cu_ft_inverter_microwave.html

Also, the Sears salesman just told me that Sears will no longer offer the "Extended Warranty Plan" for counter top microwaves.

Finally, check out the warranty on the top-of-the-line stainless Panasonic from Sears.ca.  Model 223 619 073 for $379.99:  One year!

Why do you think that is?

Heck I would rather ignore the sacred pearls of the Samurai:

"General appliance rule of thumb: Avoid GE like the West Nile Virus. If you read Consumer Reports and they recommend a GE product, crumple up that page and use it for toilet paper 'cause that's all it's worth. Despite horrendous quality problems, outrageous markups on repair parts, and a damn-near universal agreement among appliance servicers that today's GE appliances SUCK out loud, people keep buying GE and so the freak show continues. Ok, with that out the way..." (Found in http://fixitnow.com/2003/09/mailbag-appliance-brand.htm)

than buy a Panasonic Inverter Microwave!
