a high alcohol content. Alcoholic vapours can catch fire in the
cooking compartment. Use only small quantities of drinks
with a high alcohol content and open the cooking
compartment door carefully.
Risk of fire!
■
■
Never store combustible items in the cooking compartment.
Never open the appliance door if there is smoke inside.
Switch off the appliance. Pull out the mains plug or switch off
the circuit breaker in the fuse box.
Do not place greaseproof paper loosely over accessories
during preheating. A draught is created when the appliance
door is opened. The greaseproof paper may come into
contact with the heating element and catch fire. Always
weight down the greaseproof paper with a dish or a baking
tin. Only cover the surface required with greaseproof paper.
The greaseproof paper must not protrude over the
accessories.
Risk of short circuit!
■
If the appliance is faulty, switch off the circuit breaker in the
fuse box or disconnect the appliance at the mains. Call the
after­sales service.
Information on the microwave
Preparing food
Risk of fire!
Only use the microwave to prepare food which is fit for
consumption. Using the microwave for other purposes may be
dangerous and may result in damage, e.g. heated slippers and
grain or cereal pillows could catch fire, even several hours later.
Ovenware
Risk of injury!
■
■
Porcelain or ceramic ovenware can have small perforations in
the handles or lids. These perforations conceal a cavity
below. Any moisture that penetrates this cavity could cause
the ovenware to crack.
Only use ovenware that is suitable for use in a microwave.
Risk of burns!
Never trap connecting cables of electrical appliances in the hot
appliance door. The cable insulation could melt.
Hot food can heat up ovenware. Always use an oven cloth or
oven gloves to remove ovenware and accessories from the
cooking compartment.
Risk of scalding!
Microwave power and time
Never pour water into the hot cooking compartment. This will
produce hot steam.
Risk of fire!
Hot accessories and ovenware
Risk of burns!
Never remove ovenware or accessories from the cooking
compartment without an oven cloth or oven gloves.
Do not select a microwave power or time setting that is higher
than necessary. The food could catch fire and cause damage
to the appliance. Follow the information provided in this

information provided on the packaging. Always use an oven
cloth or oven gloves to remove meals.
Drinks
Risk of scalding!
There is a possibility of delayed boiling when a liquid is heated.
This means that the liquid reaches boiling temperature without
the usual steam bubbles rising to the surface. Even if the
container only vibrates a little, the hot liquid can suddenly boil
over and spatter. When heating liquids, always place a spoon in
the container. This will prevent delayed boiling.
Risk of serious damage to health.!

With careful care and cleaning your microwave oven will retain
its looks and remain good order. We will explain here how you
should care for and clean your appliance correctly.
Area
Cleaning agents
Appliance front
Hot soapy water:
Clean with a dish cloth and dry with a
soft cloth. Do not use glass cleaners or
metal or glass scrapers for cleaning.
Stainless steel
Hot soapy water:
Clean with a dish cloth and dry with a
soft cloth. Remove flecks of limescale,
grease, starch and albumin (e.g. egg
white) immediately. Corrosion can form
under such residues. Special stainless
steel cleaning agents can be obtained
from the after-sales service or from
specialist shops.
Oven
Hot soapy water or a vinegar solution:
Clean with a dish cloth and dry with a
soft cloth.
If oven is very dirty: use oven cleaner,
but only when oven is cold. It is best to
use a stainless-steel sponge.
Glass cover for the
oven light
Hot soapy water:
Clean with a dish cloth.
Control panel/outer

ã=Risk of short circuit!
Never use high-pressure cleaners or steam cleaners to clean
the oven.
ã=Risk of burns!
Never clean the appliance immediately after switching off. Let
the appliance cool down.
Notes
■ Slight differences in colour on the front of the appliance are
caused by the use of different materials, such as glass,
plastic and metal.
■
■
■
Shadows on the door panel which look like streaks, are
caused by reflections made by the oven light.
Enamel is baked on at very high temperatures. This can
cause some slight colour variations. This is normal and does
not affect their function. The edges of thin trays cannot be
completely enamelled. As a result, these edges can be
rough. This will not impair the anti-corrosion protection.
Unpleasant odours, e.g. after fish has been prepared, can be
removed very easily. Add a few drops of lemon juice to a cup
of water. Place a spoon into the container as well, to prevent
delayed boiling. Heat the water for 1 to 2 minutes at
maximum microwave power.
Cleaning agents
To ensure that the different surfaces are not damaged by using
the wrong cleaning agent, observe the information in the table.
Do not use
■
■
sharp or abrasive cleaning agents,
metal or glass scrapers to clean the glass in the appliance
door,
■
metal or glass scrapers to clean the door seal,
Self-cleaning surface in the cooking compartment
■
hard scouring pads and sponges,
■
cleaning agents with high concentrations of alcohol.
The back panel of the oven is coated with self-cleaning enamel.
It cleans itself while the oven is in operation. Sometimes, larger
splashes of food may not disappear until the oven has been
operated several times.
Wash new sponge cloths thoroughly before use.
Notes
■ Never treat the self-cleaning surface with oven cleaner. If
oven cleaner accidentally gets onto the rear wall, remove it
immediately with a sponge and plenty of water.

Energy and environment tips
Here you can find tips on how to save energy when baking and
roasting and how to dispose of your appliance properly.
Saving energy
Only preheat the oven if this is specified in the recipe or in the
operating instruction tables.
Use dark, black lacquered or enamelled baking tins. They
absorb the heat particularly well.
Open the appliance door as little as possible during cooking,
baking or roasting.
For longer cooking times, you can switch the oven off
10 minutes before the end of the cooking time and use the
residual heat to finish cooking.
Environmentally-friendly disposal
Dispose of packaging in an environmentally-friendly manner.
This appliance complies with European Directive
2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic
Equipment (WEEE). The directive gives a framework for
the collection and recycling of old appliances, which is
valid across the EU.
It is best to bake several cakes one after the other. The cooking

Put the frozen food on shallow tableware, e.g. a glass or
porcelain plate.
Cover thin and protruding parts with small pieces of
aluminium foil. This prevents these parts from cooking
prematurely. Ensure that the aluminium foil does not touch
the walls of the cooking compartment.
After defrosting, allow the food to defrost for a further 10 to
90 minutes so that it acquires an even temperature.
Liquid will be produced when defrosting meat, poultry or fish.
Drain off this liquid when you turn the food. Under no
circumstances should it be used for other purposes or be
allowed to come into contact with other foods.
Place beef, lamb and pork on the ovenware fatty-side down
first.
Bread should only be defrosted in the required amounts, as it
quickly becomes stale.
After turning, remove any minced meat that has already
defrosted.

down and poultry portions skin-side down. Cover legs and
wings with small pieces of aluminium foil.
For whole fish, cover the tail with aluminium foil, for fish fillets
cover the edges and for fish steaks cover the protruding
ends.

Tested for you in our cooking studio
Here you will find a selection of recipes and the ideal settings
for them. We will show you which type of heating and which
temperature or microwave power setting is best for your meal.
You can find information about suitable accessories and the
height at which they should be inserted. There are also tips
about ovenware and preparation methods.
Notes
■ The values in the table always apply to food placed into the
cooking compartment when it is cold and empty. Only
preheat the appliance if the table specifies that you should do
so. Before using the appliance, remove all accessories from
the cooking compartment that you will not be using.
■
■
■
■
Do not line the accessories with greaseproof paper until after
they have been preheated.
The times specified in the tables are only guidelines. They will
depend on the quality and composition of the food.
Use the accessories supplied. Additional accessories may be
obtained from specialist retailers or from the after-sales
service.
Always use an oven cloth or oven gloves when taking
accessories or ovenware out of the cooking compartment.
Defrosting, heating up and cooking with the microwave
The following tables provide you with numerous options and
settings for the microwave.
The times specified in the tables are only guidelines. They may
vary according to the ovenware used, the quality, temperature
and consistency of the food.
Defrosting
Notes
Place the frozen food in an open container on the wire rack.
■
■
Time ranges are often specified in the tables. Set the shortest
time first and then extend the time if necessary.
It may be that you have different quantities from those specified
in the tables. A rule of thumb can be applied:
Double the amount - almost twice the cooking time,
Half the amount - half the cooking time.
■
Insert the wire rack at level 1. Place the ovenware in the centre.
The food will then absorb the microwaves from all sides.
■
Delicate parts such as the legs and wings of chicken or fatty
outer layers of roasts can be covered with small pieces of
aluminium foil. The foil must not touch the cooking
compartment walls. You can remove the foil half way through
the defrosting time.
Turn or stir the food once or twice during the defrosting time.
Large pieces of food should be turned several times. When
turning, remove any liquid that has resulted from defrosting.
Leave defrosted items to stand at room temperature for a
further 10 to 60 minutes so that the temperature can
stabilise. The giblets can be removed from poultry at this
point.

Defrosting, heating up or cooking frozen food
Notes
■ Take ready meals out of the packaging. They will heat up
more quickly and evenly in microwaveable ovenware. The
different components of the meal may not require the same
amount of time to heat up .
■
Food which lies flat will cook more quickly than food which is
piled high. You should therefore distribute the food so that it
is as flat as possible in the ovenware. Different foodstuffs
should not be placed in layers on top of one another.
■
■
■
■
■
Always cover the food. If you do not have a suitable cover for
your ovenware, use a plate or special microwave foil.
Stir or turn the food 2 or 3 times during cooking.
After heating, allow the food to stand for a further 2 to
5 minutes so that it can achieve an even temperature.
Always use an oven cloth or oven gloves when removing
plates from the oven.
This will help the food retain its own distinct taste, so it will
require less seasoning.

ã=Risk of scalding!
There is a possibility of delayed boiling when a liquid is heated.
This means that the liquid reaches boiling temperature without
the usual steam bubbles rising to the surface. Even if the
container only moves a little, the hot liquid can suddenly boil
over and spatter. When heating liquids, always place a spoon in
the container. This will prevent delayed boiling.
20
Caution!
Metal ­ e.g. a spoon in a glass ­ must be kept at least 2 cm
from the oven walls and the inside of the door. Sparks could
irreparably damage the glass on the inside of the door.

Microwave tips
You cannot find any information about the settings for the
quantity of food you have prepared.
Increase or reduce the cooking times using the following rule of
thumb:
Double the amount = almost double the cooking time
Half the amount = half the cooking time
The food has become too dry.
Next time, set a shorter cooking time or select a lower microwave
power setting. Cover the food and add more liquid.
When the time has elapsed, the food is not defrosted, hot or
cooked.
Set a longer time. Large quantities and food which is piled high
require longer times.
When the time has elapsed, the food is overheated at the
edge but not done in the middle.
Stir it during the cooking time and next time, select a lower
microwave power setting and a longer cooking time.
After defrosting, the poultry or meat is defrosted on the
outside but not defrosted in the middle.
Next time, select a lower microwave power setting. If you are
defrosting a large quantity, turn it several times.
Cakes and pastries

Baking tips
You want to bake according to your own
recipe.
Use similar items in the baking tables as a guide.
Use baking tins made of silicone, glass,
plastic or ceramic materials.
The baking tin must be heat-resistant up to 250 °C. Cakes in these baking tins will be
less brown. When using the microwave, the cooking time will be shorter than the time
shown in the table.
How to establish whether sponge cake is
baked through.
Approximately 10 minutes before the end of the baking time specified in the recipe,
poke the cake with a cocktail stick at its highest point. If the cocktail stick comes out
clean, the cake is ready.
The cake collapses.
Use less liquid next time or set the oven temperature 10 degrees lower and extend
the baking time. Observe the specified mixing times in the recipe.
The cake has risen in the middle but is
lower around the edge.
Only grease the base of the springform cake tin. After baking, loosen the cake
carefully with a knife.
The cake is too dark.
Select a lower temperature and bake the cake for a little longer.
The cake is too dry.
When it is done, make small holes in the cake using a toothpick. Then drizzle fruit
juice or an alcoholic beverage over it. Next time, select a temperature 10 degrees
higher and reduce the baking time.

good, but is soggy on the inside (sticky,
When baking cakes with a moist topping, bake the base first, cover with almonds or
streaked with water).
bread crumbs and then add the topping. Please follow the recipe and follow the
baking times.
The cake cannot be turned out of the dish
when it is turned upside down.
After baking, allow the cake to cool for a further 5 to 10 minutes, then it will be easier
to turn out of the tin. If it still sticks, carefully loosen the cake around the edges using
a knife. Turn the cake tin upside down again and cover it several times with a cold,
wet cloth. Next time, grease the tin well and sprinkle some bread crumbs into it.
You have measured the temperature of the The oven temperature is measured by the manufacturer after a specified period of
time using a test rack in the centre of the cooking compartment. Ovenware and
oven using your own meat thermometer
accessories affect the temperature measurement, so there will always be some
and found there is a discrepancy.
discrepancy when you measure the temperature yourself.
Sparks are generated between the tin and
the wire rack.
Check that the tin is clean on the outside. Change the position of the tin in the
cooking compartment. If this does not help, continue baking but without the
microwave. The baking time will then be longer.
Roasting and grilling
About the tables
Tips for grilling
The temperature and roasting time depend on the type and
amount of food being cooked. This is why temperature ranges
are given in the tables. Begin with the lower temperature and, if
necessary, use a higher setting the next time,
Always keep the oven door closed when grilling and do not
preheat.
As far as possible, the pieces of food you are grilling should be
of equal thickness. Steaks should be at least 2 to 3 cm thick.
This will allow them to brown evenly and remain succulent and
juicy. Do not add salt to steaks until they have been grilled.
For more information, see the section entitled Tips for grilling
and roasting which follows the tables.
Use tongs to turn the pieces of food you are grilling. If you
pierce the meat with a fork, the juices will run out and it will
become dry.
Ovenware
You may use any heat­resistant ovenware which is suitable for
use in a microwave. Metal roasting dishes are not suitable for
roasting with microwaves.
The ovenware can become very hot. Use oven gloves to take
the ovenware out of the oven.
Dark meat, e.g. beef, browns more quickly than lightercoloured meat such as veal or pork. When grilling lightcoloured meat or fish, these often only brown slightly on the
surface, although they are cooked and juicy on the inside.
Place hot glass ovenware on a dry kitchen towel after they have
been removed from the oven. The glass could crack if placed
on a cold or wet surface.
The grill element switches off and on again automatically. This
is normal. The grill setting determines how frequently this will
happen.
Tips for roasting
Tips for braising
Use a deep roasting dish for roasting meat and poultry.
Use ovenware with a lid for braising fish.
Check that your ovenware fits in the cooking compartment. It
should not be too big.
Add two to three tablespoons of liquid and a little lemon juice
or vinegar into the ovenware.
Meat:
Cover approx. two thirds of the ovenware base with liquid. Add
a little more liquid for pot roasts. Turn pieces of meat halfway
through the cooking time. When the roast is ready, turn off the
oven and allow it to rest for an additional 10 minutes. This
allows better distribution of the meat juices.
Beef
Notes
■ Turn pot-roasted beef after Y and Z of the cooking time.
Finally, allow to stand for approx. a further 10 minutes.
■
Poultry:
Turn the pieces of meat after Z of the cooking time has
elapsed.
■
Turn fillet of beef and sirloin halfway through the cooking
time. Finally, allow to stand for approx. a further 10 minutes.
Turn steaks after Z of the cooking time.

Tips for roasting and grilling
The table does not contain information for the For small roasts, select a higher temperature and a shorter cooking time. For
weight of the joint.
larger roasts, select a lower temperature and a longer cooking time.
How to tell when the roast is ready.
Use a meat thermometer (available from specialist shops) or carry out a “spoon
test”. Press down on the roast with a spoon. If it feels firm, it is ready. If the spoon
can be pressed in, it needs to be cooked for a little longer.
The roast looks good but the juices are burnt. Next time, use a smaller roasting dish or add more liquid.
The roast looks good but the juices are too
clear and watery.
Next time, use a larger roasting dish and add less liquid.
The roast is not well-done enough.
Carve the roast. Prepare the gravy in the roasting dish and place the slices of roast
meat in the gravy. Finish cooking the meat using the microwave only.

Acrylamide in foodstuffs
Which foods are affected?
Acrylamide is mainly produced in grain and potato products
that are heated to high temperatures, such as potato crisps,
chips, toast, bread rolls, bread, fine baked goods (biscuits,
gingerbread, cookies).
Tips for keeping acrylamide to a minimum when preparing food
General
Keep cooking times to a minimum. Cook meals until they are golden brown, but not
too dark. Large, thick pieces of food contain less acrylamide.
Baking biscuits
Oven chips
Max. 200 °C in Top/bottom heating or max. 180 °C in 3D hot air or hot air mode.
Max. 190° C in Top/bottom heating or max. 170 °C in 3D hot air or hot air mode. Egg
white and egg yolk reduce the formation of acrylamide. Distribute thinly and evenly
over the baking tray. Cook at least 400 g at once on a baking tray so that the chips do
not dry out.
