Which is the one brand that delivers on the Microwave Buttons Myth. "Panasonic is the only microwave brand whose heating options operate like dimmer controls," says Schiffmann, referring to this particular oven's ability to actually reduce microwave energy and heat items at this reduced rate, instead of just see-sawing between zero and 100. "But their patent is running out soon so other companies will probably adopt it."
