Microwave features like Sensor and Invertor Cooking


Thread Starter

Put out by Panasonic and others...is Invertor merely hype or appreciably better cooking? Also I've not used the microwave sensor but it seems like they're for thicker foods?

Heating soups. Reheating foods like pizza. Making popcorn. Currently melting butter is a fireworks display in my Samsung. Blasting through the crack in paper-plate cover.

- But hey I'm not complaining. It's lasted 28 yrs with a lot of use! Finally getting ready to retire.

I have a Panasonic microwave oven with an inverter function. It does seem to help with cooking and heating liquids. Non-inverter ovens cycle between zero and full power every few seconds when cooking at a half-power while the inverter versions output a continuous 50% power. The short blast of full power on the non-inverter oven can cause a boilover before the power goes to zero.

Melting butter at half or lower power on the Panasonic usually avoids boilovers.
