Panasonic NN-SN67HS Microwave Review

Tested using Methodology v1.0
Reviewed Jul 10, 2024 at 10:13 am

The Panasonic NN-SN67HS is a lower-end inverter microwave. It's a little cheaper and slightly smaller than the Panasonic NN-SC67NS, and it has similar features and controls, except it lacks a dedicated 'Beverage' button. Its controls include sensor cooking and reheating functions, which allow the unit to detect steam and adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Our Verdict

10 Power

The 1200-watt Panasonic NN-SN67HS can heat food very quickly at maximum power.

  • Heats food quickly.
  • Sensor cooking functions.
  • Mute controls option.
  • Too small for some uses.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

This microwave has a couple of variants. The Panasonic NN-SN67HS's LED display is blue, while the NN-SN686S's LED screen lights up in green. They're otherwise identical. We tested the Panasonic NN-SN67HS, and you can see the label for the unit we tested here.

If you encounter another variant, let us know in the comments, and we'll update our review.

Compared To Other Microwaves

The Panasonic NN-SN67HS is a smaller, cheaper inverter microwave. It heats food quickly and has a sensor cooking mode that detects steam, making microwaving more automatic. You can also mute the controls. However, if you're looking for a small machine for a cramped kitchen, you might want something even smaller, like the Toshiba ML2-EM09PA(BS) or LG LMC0975ST. Those models lack sensors, however.

This microwave has plenty of options beyond manual cooking. In addition to 10 manual power levels, it has a sensor reheat function and 15 sensor cooking programs, which the manufacturer lists in the manual. There's also a popcorn button, a defrost function, a 'Keep Warm' function, and the option to set a 'Standing Time' if you want your food to rest after cooking. Its controls are very similar to those of the Panasonic NN-SC67NS, but it lacks that model's dedicated 'Beverage' option.

You won't notice a difference in performance between microwaves. When heating food in shallow dishes, evenness depends on what you're heating and the placement of your dish. You can read more about our investigation into microwave performance here.

When heating food in deeper containers, evenness depends on your specific container, where you place it, and what kind of food you're heating. There isn't any significant difference between microwaves. You can read more about our investigation into microwave performance here.
