Please, Can Anyone Recommend A Combination Microwave Oven??

My brilliant Panasonic Combination Microwave Oven NN-A755 died the other day and l want to replace it with something similar. I bought it about 14 years ago, so l was lucky it lasted so long.

I used it mainly, for making my porridge, custard and sauces. There was a great option on it for doing jacket potatoes. You just put the potato/potatoes in the microwave, entered their total weight and pressed Start. They were ready in about 15 minutes, depending on their weight. They were perfect.

I havenít been able to go to the library to read the ĎWhichí magazine because of my injured knee, so l have been looking online.
I also rang Panasonic, who said the NN-CT56JB was the equivalent. I asked if this had the jacket potato option but he said, no l would have to press something 3 times to cook them.
He also mentioned, the NN-ST479. which has the potato option but I canít find many suppliers online and the ones that stock it have bad reviews for this model.

I am now wondering if l should go for a different brand, although l do love Panasonic goods. I find them very reliable.

So l ask, do you have a Combination Microwave Oven that you could recommend? Preferably, with the Jacket potato option?

Thank You.

Art, this is a good one I bought last year from Tesco. Sharp Combination R843SLM 25 litre. It was my first ever microwave, which I mainly bought, as a backup to when the gas cooker goes on the blink.It's very versatile, and yes, Jacket Potatoes no problem, just stick on them A2. Available most places, I certainly recommend it.

Thank You, John.
I did do some research into this microwave which l think has now been discontinued or is going to be?
I do know Sharp have a great reputation for manufacturing microwaves. I think they were one of the first?

Art, it is still available on Amazon. They seem to have the best price, including free delivery.

I've got a Bosch combination one it's built into my kitchen units....it's 10 years old now so the model probably isn't available but I recommend Bosch...it's never been any trouble and I use it a lot.

Art , I have the Panasonic Inverter one that lets you do what youíve explained .Model NN-CT552 W ,itís the same as Realspeeds who has kindly given you the newer model link .
It gives you the choice to punch the Jacket Potato lettering which asks you if you want to go up or down from 200 grams then it automatically selects cooking time and you simply press start .
Jackets come out with a lovely crisp skin done this way
