  1. I won’t buy another panasonic microwave. The UI has serious flaws: Too easy to activate demo mode, too hard to exit it. Independent of any UI optimization for any model. One sequence to activate, one to return to normal. Without direct key input ( on mythere has to be a sequence of keys on every unit that works)
    In addition, locking gets confused with Demo.
