Many review sites recommend Panasonic microwave ovens as top choices, including The Sweethome and Techlicious. Panasonic microwave ovens stand out due to their excellent build quality, well-designed controls and power inverter technology. General Electric microwaves are also considered high-quality options.
Panasonic holds a number of patents for microwave inverter technology that allows its microwaves to adjust the power levels of their microwave generators precisely while cooking food, resulting in more rapid and even cooking. Other microwaves alternate between a few preset levels of cooking power or shut the microwave generator off entirely to modulate the power level of the oven.
