Comment:
The first Panasonic Microwave lasted 20 years +. The second only 7 years, after two replacements under warranty. The third one, less than a month old, has a misalignment problem of the door. Returned to the store, opened three additional boxes, all with the same problem. Waiting for Panasonic to resolve the issue, still waiting...

A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
