We have a ten year old Panasonic Inverter 1100W microwave that today started making a clicking sound and then displays H97. It appears this is a magatron fault.

 

It looks like this Panasonic Inverter 1100W microwave is basically the same thing, but ten years on.

 

Is my logic sound that going with the updated one is probably the simplest thing to do? A lot of the other more expensive ones seem to have "one touch" cooking which we've never used.

Are they definitely worth the extra cost? I got the impression that they allow you some one-touch options for auto-sensing food which is something we've never used. If they're definitely better though overall then I'm interested.

My most used button is sensor reheat.

 

Not sure what you need to spend to get that.

We hardly use any of those functions...usually just used for heating wheat bags (wife gets cold - haha), and other random things....so depends on how you use things...we certainly couldn't justify the extra coin for functionality we never (infrequently) would use.

The sensor in the Genius models ensure that should you use the auto function you'll have better luck than not.

 

We always cook our spuds in such a unit and they're perfect everytime.  Potatoes.  Start.  Done.
