5 Reasons For
Bigger Interior Capacity
Panasonic NN-CT56 is 27L capacity, but the Panasonic NN-DF386 is only a 23L capacity microwave (4L smaller).

'Interior Capacity' is how much the microwave can hold, measured in litres (L).

A bigger capacity means that the microwave is capable of holding - and therefore cooking - more food at once.

Read more Read less | Edit
23 Auto Programs
The number of auto programs on the Panasonic NN-CT56 is 23, but the Panasonic NN-DF386 only has 16 auto programs.

'Auto Program' denotes the number of automatic programs the microwave comes with. These are standardized cooking modes for popular dishes (such as baked potatoes, chilled quiche, etc). The weight is input, and the microwave takes care of the rest - calculating power and time to achieve the tastiest possible result.

More auto programs means that the microwave can handle more types of dishes, meaning it is more versatile and, by extension, helpful.

Better Kagoo Score
The Panasonic NN-CT56 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Panasonic NN-DF386 scored 82.
Cheaper by £34
The Panasonic NN-CT56 costs £175.00, whereas the Panasonic NN-DF386 is £209.00.
Newer by Three Years
The Panasonic NN-CT56 was released 18 months ago, but the Panasonic NN-DF386 was released four years ago
2 Reasons For
Steam Cooking
The Panasonic NN-DF386 has a steam cooking, however the Panasonic NN-CT56 does not.

'Steam Cooking' indicates whether the microwave is capable of cooking foods using bursts of hot steam rather than direct heat or microwaves. It's a more delicate form of cooking, best suited to vegetables, dumplings and even pasta.

A steamer function on your microwave oven is particularly helpful for steaming vegetables, since it keeps the nutrient value very high while getting the veg nice and tender.

Interior Capacity

'Interior Capacity' is how much the microwave can hold, measured in litres (L).

A bigger capacity means that the microwave is capable of holding - and therefore cooking - more food at once.

Reheat Function

'Reheat Function' indicates whether the microwave has a low power mode, aimed to heat up pre-cooked food without cooking it further.

A reheat function is extremely helpful for making leftovers taste the best they can, rather that having to eat them cold.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these microwaves for 10 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
