When I'm in the Kitchen, I become: Self-proclaimed Gourmet
This microwave does not have a touchpad to determine time but has a dial that must be turned to the proper amount of time each time of use. The small gray writing on the stainless background is not readable; the only writing that can be read easily is the name Panasonic. There is plenty of room on the display column for larger lettering. This Panasonic is overpriced and has been returned for a full refund. Sorry , Panasonic ! Back to the drawing board! A handle is a nice feature instead of always pushing a button to open the door.
