The microwave that's also an oven, steamer and grill

If you're looking for a helping hand in the kitchen, the Panasonic 4-in-1 Steam Combination Microwave Oven is the perfect gadget for you. It can be used as a steamer, an oven with a top and bottom heater, a grill or a traditional microwave, letting you preserve nutrients and cook crispy food quickly and easily.

The integrated water tank and boiler delivers a powerful 1,100 watts of steam, filling the oven and cooking entire meals in just 15 minutes, as well as locking in nutrients, moisture and flavour.

You can cook using two or more heat sources at the same time, thanks to Panasonic's Inverter Technology. This allows you to cook meals up to 40% faster than in a traditional oven; all you need to do is touch one of the six pre-programmed combination cooking options and walk away.

The bottom tray is heated up by microwave power, while the grill function works from the top. This means food is crispy all round without the need for turning it. Use the microwave power on the bottom and the steam function on the top to give crunchy, nutrient-rich vegetables.

The Panasonic 4-in-1 Steam Combination Microwave Oven is designed to be easy to use in any space. Its flat-bed design means you don't have to use cookware that fits on a turntable, so the entire 27-litre capacity is usable cooking space. Despite its large interior, its sleek, compact design fits easily on any kitchen bench.

It's super easy to clean too. The flat grill and stainless steel interior can be simply wiped down and there's special cleaning programs using steam. The grill tray is also dishwasher safe, meaning even less washing up. Quick cooking, quick clean-up - what's not to love?
