Panasonic encourages families to get cooking together with versatile and easy-to-use convection, grill and combination microwave

Ease of use and variety of models to help busy families provide healthy meals for children

Panasonic has launched its latest convection, grill and combination cooking microwave, designed for versatile cooking by busy Australian parents.

With challenges such as late hours at work and extra-curricular activities preventing parents cooking and eating with their children as much as they would like1. Panasonic’s new 27L model offers an efficient and convenient solution to bring families together in the kitchen.

The NN-CD58JS model (RRP $549) allows for simultaneous combination cooking and is complete with Panasonic’s own Junior Menu feature – a convenient, pre-programmed auto menu with eight options for children, ensuring even the fussiest eaters can still enjoy healthy delights.

The intelligent design of the microwave – with the fan being moved to inside the top of the unit – has created room for a spacious 34cm turntable, allowing for larger plates and dishes. What’s more, the overall size of the microwave has been reduced by 20 per cent compared to conventional models, allowing for more counter space in compact kitchens.

Samantha Dawson, Product Marketing Manager, Microwaves, Panasonic Australia, said:

“We’re very confident that our latest convection, grill and combination microwave will prove that this household appliance can be a mainstay in the kitchen and provide an excellent solution for efficient and healthy cooking, especially among time-poor families.”

“We also know that the average Australian home is also decreasing in size2 and families are looking for practical solutions for smaller kitchens. The versatility and slim-line design of Panasonic’s NN-CD58JS model is perfect for any home or apartment where kitchen space is a prime consideration.”

Panasonic’s latest microwave range includes:
