The Panasonic NA148XS1 is one of the company’s flagship washing machines that boasts a feature set that is normally seen in higher-end models. It has a full ECONAVi sensor that will adjust every washing parameter based on the soiling, type, and weight of the load. In other words, just add the dirty clothes and washing powder and the machine will do the rest.
The Panasonic NA148XS1 Makes Washing Clothes a Lot Easier
Aside from its smart features, the Panasonic NA148XS1 has other add-on functions such as steam action, anti-allergy cycle, and wrinkle care. It also comes with an 8-kilogram maximum capacity and a 1,400 spin speed. This is the company’s top-end features and it does promise to be one of the best washing machines to date. Well, at least on paper anyway.
Panasonic has taken great lengths to make the NA148XS1 Washing Machine as easy to use as possible. It has a rotary program selector that does not require rocket science to use. There are also add-on features that can easily be accessed found on a row of buttons just beneath the display. Speaking of the display, it features blue icons and pertinent information with regards to temperature, duration, and spin speed. These are all displayed in really large numbers. Furthermore, the screen is so bright that you can read what’s on it even when you’re laundry room is pitch-black.
The key to this particular washing machine to stand out from the competition is with its ECONAVI Autocare system. It takes washing clothes to a whole new level of ease. It measures incoming water temperature, load weight, and soiling level with the use of an optical sensor. From there, it will tweak the water consumption, soak time, number of rinses, duration, spin speed, amount of detergent, and temperature to suit the cycle.
When it comes to the actual washing, it does perform well. However, stain removal abilities are not the best that you can see for a washing machine. Typically seen in modern machines, it provides a lengthy wash cycle especially when the load is almost to the brim. Still, it only used a smaller amount of electricity as compared to its rivals.
With its good list of features and ease-of-use, the Panasonic NA148XS1 can earn a spot to anyone’s home. It makes washing easier to handle as opposed to manually adjusting the settings. However, it is still not quite the best, especially for its price.
