Hi, I am genuinely very disappointed with the product and I cannot find any contact details of the sender. The oven stops working half way through and gives out a smell like a burning wire & smokes come out of it - maybe overheats I cannot stress how disappointed I am and how much inconvenience it has caused. I have only had this oven for 5 months, what a disaster. Could someone get in contact with me.Kutalmis
not as powerful microwave function, oven function as on previous models , microwave fault after 2.5 years of infrequent use :((Sergei LAPA
I got 17 months out of this machine, that's 5 months over the guarantee and it's dead. It keeps blowing the house fuse box and it's fitted with a 13 amp fuse on the plug itself.For something costing over £300, I would have expected it to last longer than 17 months.After reading some of the other reviews, in hindsight, it seems pointless getting it repaired as it's likely to to break down again.I'm looking for a replacement, something not Panasonic.Any recommendations please?Amazon Customer
Dose everything well really pleased with itanthony shannon
Take no notice of the idiot review from 16 June 2018. I mean, who buys a kitchen appliance without noting the size then complains it's too big? And too heavy? For what, taking on holiday with you? Far from being too complex, it is in fact very easy to use with guided controls and auto sensors. It does the job for you! Yes, a little pricey but you get what you pay for and the results are fantastic.1stmobileuk
Very pleased to have bought this product to steam and bake food.Spitfire007
It's brilliant. Don't know how I managed without it before. It does everything and does not need much room. Also the booklet that comes with it is self explanatory.Barry mantz
good product seems to work on most modes , microwave setitngs not as good as previous microwavestb
All in all I'm very happy with the purchase! First things that come to mind: Somewhat larger than a regular micro. Does get hot from outside in the oven mode. As other people have noted as well, versatility means that the manual is good to have nearby.Amazon Customer
Ease of use, and very versatileAmazon Customer
Great oven no turntable to worry about so you can put larges plates cooking trays inAndrew
An extremely versatile cooker/steamer/grill/microwave and oven with so many optional uses Ive still got plenty to try. Don't buy just to reheat food its worth far more than that.Mr. W. A. Hughes
THIS MACHINE COOKS, HEATS, STEAMS ANY FOOD YOU WANT, WELL WORTH THE MONEYstewart femister
This does everything it says and more, and it does it well, but two big design faults shout out immediately.The illuminated display screen is great but the touch buttons underneath for setting the programmes are not illuminated and are very hard to read. I have had to set up a spotlight to shine on the front. I know I'm getting on a bit but my vision is good and I struggle. Husband has cataracts and can't read them at all.Secondly, there is no indicator for the actual oven temperature, just their guess at 180C being 180C. I've used a stand alone thermometer to check and it's about 10C less than suggested. Ok once you know.Despite these I am impressed with it, specially the steam function.ligsy

Oven switching off during cookingRaymond E.
I highly recommend you retain the Box & Packing. This is because you will need to send it back to Amazon for frequent repairs. Check other reviews for confirmation.Amazon will ask you to post it back and it's hard to securely package this (trust me) due to it's size and weight 19kg.Mine experienced cutouts from new which fixed themselves after unplugging/plugging back in but now after 12 months it has failed completely and I have posted back to Amazon repair centre in Manchester.Otherwise it is nice and versatile BUT your never sure it will complete a program without cutting out.Dr B
This as an expensive treat to myself, cooking for one nd having disability issues. Am now waiting for my second roast to be finished, have used the microwave, roast, steam and auto cook so far and it is perfect for me. Programming is easy, follow the book with large sized instructions, the only fault I can find so far is that I would like a light for the programmes so that they stood out. Having problems with registering it on the Panasonic site, will have to phone them, is bringing back a love of cooking fingers crossed that it continuesLiz McNally

Experience fresh gourmet meals with minimal effort, thanks to the NN-DS596B Steam Combi Oven - Featuring Turbo Steam cooking for preserving vitamins, and Panacrunch which evenly cooks food for low-fat grilling. Cooking fresh and healthy food has never been so simple.
The NN-DS596B injects steam directly into the top of the oven from its highly efficient boiler. By cooking with steam food retains more nutrients and natural flavours for a quicker, healthier and more delicious meal.
Intelligent combination cooking offers faster great results. Combine microwave, grill, oven and steam to suit your cooking needs.
Auto Cooking is the easiest way to get your cooking started. Simply select Auto from the menu, set the weight of the food and press start. That's all it takes, as the NN-DS596B automatically adjusts the power level and cooking time to suit.
Conventional microwave ovens offer two options, full power or off. Panasonic inverter technology delivers graduated power sequences instead, allowing food to cook evenly and thoroughly with even more delicious results.
The Panasonic Inverter technology doesn't just cook food more efficiently, it also powers the Turbo Defrost function to thaw your frozen food completely in no time at all.
Combine the power of the upper heater and the microwave-heated Panacrunch pan to cook food quickly and evenly, from top to bottom without the need to rotate midway through. During cooking, excess fat is drained off by the pan's grooves to maintain a crispy outside and a juicy inside.
The NN-DS596B replaces the conventional turntable with a much simpler flatbed, offering 29% extra cooking space inside. This enables you to use dishes with a variety of size or shape.
