Defrosting Techniques:
• Remove freezer paper, plastic wrap or foil wrap. Place food in a
microwave-safe dish.
• To prevent thin parts and edges from becoming too warm.and cooking
before center of food is defrosted, shield with small pieces of aluminum
foil,
• Because some foods will still be icy in the center, it is necessary to have
standing time after defrosting the food in the oven. Food should be
taken out of the oven to complete defrosting. A longer standing time
might be required for denser foods such as roasts.
• Timed Defrosting: Use power level P30 (Medium Low). For most frozen
foods, allow approximately 5 minutes per pound. To speed up the
defrosting of dense foods over 1 Ib, you may start on P100 for 2
minutes. Then reduce to the power level P30 and enter remaining time,
18
Note: • Maximum weight for defrosting is 5.9 Ibs. If weight is entered at
more than 5.9 Ibs, a beep sounds to alert you to enter correct
weight.
• If START is pressed without entering a weight, the control will
default to 1.0 lb.

:OOKING GUIDE
COOKINGPRINCIPLESAND TECHNIQUES
The advantages of microwave
cooking are speed and efficiency,
For warming, heating, and
defrosting, nothing compares. Here
are a few tips that will make
microwaving easier and more
enjoyable,
Microwave Cooking Principles
Because microwave cooking
requires only one-quarter to onethird the time of conventional
cooking, cooking principles
become even more important,
Quantity
In microwave cooking, the cooking
time is dependent on the amount of
food in the oven. If you double the
recipe, plan on doubling the
cooking time.
Density
Dense foods, such as potatoes,
need more cooking time, as they
take longer for microwave energy
to penetrate and for the heat tobe
conducted through them.
Shape and Size
Cut food into uniform shapes and
sizes for even cooking in the
microwave. When cooking irregular
shapes (such as chicken pieces),
place the thicker parts to the outer
edge of the dish.
Moisture, Sugar and Fat
Food high in moisture, sugar or fat
cook faster. Add a minimum of
liquid to moisten foods. Excessive
amounts of water slow cooking,
Starting Temperature
Frozen or refrigerated foods take
longer to microwave than food at
room temperature.
Delicate Ingredients
Delicate foods such as eggs,
cheese, mayonnaise, etc., cook very
quickly, andshould be watched
carefully,
Microwave Cooking Techniques
Arranging:Arrange food in a
circular pattern, with denser, thicker
items at the edge of the dish.
Piercing: Pierce the membrane of
foods such as eggs, oysters, snails,
sausages, livers, clams and whole
vegetables, so they do not burst.
Pierce pouches when using cook-inthe-bag food items.
Reheating: Cooked food reheats
extremely well by using a low level
of microwave energy. Place denser
foods near the outer edge of the
dish when reheating.
Covering: Most foods will cook and
reheat better when covered. Pierce
plastic wrap to vent steam.
Stirring: Stir foods to help cook/
reheat more quickly and evenly.
Turning Over: To promote even
cooking, turn larger solid items
such as roasts or baked potatoes
over halfway through the cooking
time.
Shielding: Use small, smooth strips
of aluminum foil to prevent
corners, thin or bony areas from
overcooking.
Standing Time: Foods continue
cooking even after removal from
the oven. Standing time is
necessary to allow foods to
complete cookingdefrosting.
Converting Recipes
Microwave recipes will likely call for
less liquid and cooking time.
Microwave Thermometers
Amicrowave-safethermometercan
be used to achieve the best results.
Insert the thermometer carefully
and properly into the food.
The guide belowgives suggested
thermometerreadingsformeatand
poultry. Keep in mind that standing
time is essential for most food to
reach its proper temperature.
Internal temperatures should be
measured after 5-10 minutes of
standing time.

COOKING
WITH METAL
RACK
The meta( rackgives you extra space when cooking more than one
dish at the same time. Set the metal rackon the hooks(ocated on the
inside walls of the oven.
NOTE: The Turntable may be turned offto accommodate large dishes, See
Turntable setting on page 22.
Metal Rack Installation
1, Place the Metal Rack in guides on the side wall of oven caviW as shown,
2. Place food into the oven following instructions below,
3. Set the desired cooking time and power level.
IL
¢
Tips for food placement:
• Ptace deticate quick cooking food on the bottom tray and tonger
cooking food on the metal rack.
• Place two foods with similar cooking times on the metal rack and
one with a shorter cooking time on the bottom tray.
• If all foods require the same cooking time, reverse the location of
dishes in the oven halfway through cooking time.
• Rotate the dishes, rearrange or stir food halfway through cooking
for best results.
• Use plastic wrap to cover foods.
• Do not store the metal rack in the oven.
• Do not let food container or rack touch the top of the oven cavity.
• Do not use browning dish or metal container when using this
rack,
• Only Timed Cooking can be used when cooking with metal rack.
Do not use rack for One Touch cooking or defrosting.

result in an oven fire.
3) Never use a brown paper bag for
popping corn,
4) After popping, open bag
carefully as popcorn and steam
are extremely hot.
BAKED POTATO
• Arrange multiple potatoes in a
circular pattern with heavier
ends pointing toward the outer
edge of the turntable.

COOKING
- MEATS, POULTRY AND FISH
PREPARATION
• Use a microwave-safe dish.
• Defrost frozen food completely,
• Wash poultry and fish in cool
water,
• Arrange small items in a single
layer in dish, avoid overlapping
edges of food.
• Place thick sections toward edge
of the dish.
• Use a rack in the dish to elevate
meat out of the juices.
• Use spices and seasonings as
desired.
• Add salt after cooking, if
necessary,
• Aluminum foil can be used to
cover thin parts of meat or
poultry wings and legs to
prevent overcooking,
• Foil should be applied toward the
end of cooking time.
• Place meat fat side down to start
cooking. Turn fat side up half
way through cooking time.
COOKING
• Use wax paper or plasticwrap to
stop splattering.
• Turn over or rearrange meat,
poultry and fish halfway through
CHECKING DONENESS
Beef:The color of the meat, on the
inside, indicates doneness. Rare
roast should be red inside. Medium
is pink and gray indicates well
done.
Pork: Cooked pork meat should be
gray with clear juice.
Poultry: Juices should be clear
yellow when cooked. Legs should
move freely.
Fishand Seafood:Should be opaque
in color and flake easily.
To check internal temperature of
various meats and poultry, use a
microwave or conventional meat
thermometer after removing meat
from the oven. Insert the
thermometer, avoiding bone or fat.
Lower temperatures are found in
the center of the roast or in the
muscle close to a large bone, Never
usea conventional meat
thermometer in the microwaveoven.

QUESTIONS
AND ANSWERS
Q. When the microwave oven is plugged into a wall outlet for the first
time, it does not work properly. What is wrong?
A. The microcomputer used in the microwave oven control may
temporarily become scrambled and fail to function as programmed.
Unplug the oven from the wall outlet and then plug it back in again. The
microcomputer should then automatically reset for proper functioning.
Q. Why is there noise coming from the turntable when the microwave
oven is turned on?
A. This noise occurs when the turntable roller rest and cavity bottom are
dirty. Clean the turntable roller rest and cavity bottom. Frequent
cleaning of these parts should eliminate or reduce the noise.
O. Why is there noise
power?
A. When cooking with
to obtain the lower
the oven cycles on
coming from the microwave oven when reducing
a power other than P100,the oven cycles on and off
power level. The clicking noise can be heard when
and off. This is normal.
Q. Why is there steam coming out of the air exhaust vent?
A. Steam is produced during cooking. The microwave oven has been
made to vent this steam out of the air exhaust vent.
Q. What is wrong when the microwave oven interior light will not glow?
A. There may be several reasons why the interior light will not glow. The
light bulb may have burned out or START may not have been pressed.
Replace the light bulb or press START. Never replace the light bulb by
yourself. Contact an Authorized Service Center.
Q. Why do eggs sometimes pop?
A. The egg yolk may pop because of steam build-up inside the membrane.
Pierce the membrane with a toothpick before cooking it. Never
microwave eggs in the shell since they may explode.
Q. How are boil-overs avoided?
A. Use a larger utensil than usual for cooking or use a lower power level.
If you open the microwave oven door or touch STOP/CLEAR, the food
will stop boiling.
Q. Why does the beep tone sound when a pad on the control panel is
pressed?
A. The beep tone sounds to assure that the setting is being properly
entered. However, you can turn off the beep tone. See optional settings
on page 17.
Q. Why does the exhaust fan start when the FAN keypad is not pressed?
A. High temperature air from the heating surface below microwave oven
can cause an overheating condition that may damage the oven. The
exhaust fan will start automatically to cool off the microwave oven and
prevent damage to it.
Q. How can you be sure your microwave oven is turned off when the
exhaust fan is operating?
A. When you are operating the microwave, the sound of the exhaust fan
may be louder than the microwave itself. This could possibly prevent
you from knowin.g for sure if the microwave oven is turned off. The
microwave oven is designed to automatically turn off when door is
open.
If for some reason you are not sure the microwave oven is turned off,
turn the exhaust fan off to eliminate the sound and check to see if the
microwave oven is operating. If you are still not satisfied, have the
microwave oven checked.
