Microwave / Convection Oven

NN-C2000W Operating Guide and Cookbook

We are glad you have chosen to purchase a PANASONIC Microwave/Convection Oven. Before operating this oven, please read these instructions completely. If you have only used a Microwave oven for reheating and defrosting, with Panasonic’s Inverter Technology, you can be reassured of excellent results when cooking a variety of foods, as the ‘soft’ penetration of microwave energy to the centre of food helps prevent overcooking on edges and surfaces. Foods can now be gently simmered without the concern of boil over. You also have the added advantage of cooking with either convection or grill to achieve perfect browning and crisping of foods. Combination allows you to cook with speed as well as browning at the same time. After reading the introductory chapter, I am sure you will be able to master the basic technique and thereby develop a firm understanding of your new oven. This book includes recipes from starters to desserts. Start experimenting now, and enjoy the first class results you will achieve by using your new microwave/convection oven.
