HOW A MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS
CHECKING THAT YOUR OVEN IS OPERATING
CORRECTLY
ENGLISH
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy released
enables food to be cooked or reheated without the foods form or colour
changing.
The following simple procedure enables you to check that your oven is
working correctly at all times.
Open the oven door by pulling the handle on the right side of the door.
Place a glass of water on the turntable. Then, close the door.
You can use your microwave oven to:
• Defrost (manual & auto)
• Cook
• Reheat
1. Press the Microwave (
Result :
Cooking Principle.
1. The microwaves generated by the magnetron are
distributed uniformly as the food rotates on the
turntable. The food is thus cooked evenly.
2. The microwaves are absorbed by the food up to
a depth of about 1 inch (2.5 cm). Cooking then
continues as the heat is dissipated within the food.
3. Cooking times vary according to the recipient used
and the properties of the food:
• Quantity and density
• Water content
• Initial temperature (refrigerated or not)
) button.
The 800 W (maximum cooking power)
indications are displayed:
2. Set the time 4 to 5 minutes by turning the dial knob
and press the Start/+30s ( ) button.
Result:
800W
The oven light comes on and the
turntable starts rotating.
1) Cooking starts and when it has finished the oven beeps
4 times.
2) The end reminder signal will beep 3 times (once every
minute).
3) The current time is displayed again.
The oven must be plugged into an appropriate wall socket. The
turntable must be in position in the oven. If a power level other than the
maximum is used, the water takes longer to boil.
As the centre of the food is cooked by heat dissipation, cooking
continues even when you have taken the food out of the oven.
Standing times specified in recipes and in this booklet must therefore
be respected to ensure:
• Even cooking of the food right to the centre
• The same temperature throughout the food

COOKWARE GUIDE
To cook food in the microwave oven, the microwaves must be able to
penetrate the food, without being reflected or absorbed by the dish used.
Care must therefore be taken when choosing the cookware. If the
cookware is marked microwave-safe, you do not need to worry.
The following table lists various types of cookware and indicates whether
and how they should be used in a microwave oven.

cooked in a microwave oven. Generally speaking, microwave cooking is
ideal for any food that would normally be prepared on a hob. Melting butter
or chocolate, for example (see the chapter with tips, techniques and hints).
Covering during cooking
To cover the food during cooking is very important, as the evaporated water
rises as steam and contributes to cooking process. Food can be covered in
different ways: e.g. with a ceramic plate, plastic cover or microwave suitable
cling film.
Standing times
After cooking is over food the standing time is important to allow the
temperature to even out within the food.

COOKING GUIDE
MICROWAVES
Microwave energy actually penetrates food, attracted and absorbed by its
water, fat and sugar content.
The microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move rapidly. The rapid
movement of these molecules creates friction and the resulting heat cooks
the food.
COOKING
Cookware for microwave cooking:
Cookware must allow microwave energy to pass through it for maximum
efficiency. Microwaves are reflected by metal, such as stainless steel,
aluminium and copper, but they can penetrate through ceramic, glass,
porcelain and plastic as well as paper and wood. So food must never be
cooked in metal containers.
Food suitable for microwave cooking:
Many kinds of food are suitable for microwave cooking, including fresh or
frozen vegetables, fruit, pasta, rice, grains, beans, fish, and meat. Sauces,
custard, soups, steamed puddings, preserves, and chutneys can also be

REHEATING
Instructions
Your microwave oven will reheat food in a fraction of the time that
conventional ovens hobs normally take.
Use the power levels and reheating times in the following chart as a guide.
The times in the chart consider liquids with a room temperature of about
+18 to +20 °C or a chilled food with a temperature of about +5 to +7 °C.
Arranging and covering
Avoid reheating large items such as joint of meat – they tend to overcook
and dry out before the centre is piping hot. Reheating small pieces will be
more successful.
Power levels and stirring
Some foods can be reheated using 800 W power while others should be
reheated using 600 W, 450 W or even 300 W.
Check the tables for guidance. In general, it is better to reheat food using a
lower power level, if the food is delicate, in large quantities, or if it is likely to
heat up very quickly (mince pies, for example).
Stir well or turn food over during reheating for best results. When possible,
stir again before serving.
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby foods. To prevent
eruptive boiling of liquids and possible scalding, stir before, during and
after heating. Keep them in the microwave oven during standing time. We
recommend putting a plastic spoon or glass stick into the liquids. Avoid
overheating (and therefore spoiling) the food.
It is preferable to underestimate cooking time and add extra heating time, if
necessary.
Heating and standing times
When reheating food for the first time, it is helpful to make a note of the time
taken – for future reference.
Always make sure that the reheated food is piping hot throughout.
Allow food to stand for a short time after reheating - to let the temperature
even out.
The recommended standing time after reheating is 2-4 minutes, unless
another time is recommended in the chart.
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby food. See also the
chapter with the safety precautions.
Prepare even sized florets.
Cut big florets into halves.
Arrange stems to the centre.
Cut courgettes into slices.
Add 30 ml (2 tbsp.) water or
a knob of butter. Cook until
just tender.
Cut egg plants into small
slices and sprinkle with 1
tablespoon lemon juice.
Cut leeks into thick slices.
Prepare small whole or
sliced mushrooms. Do not
add any water. Sprinkle with
lemon juice. Spice with salt
and pepper. Drain before
serving.
Cut onions into slices or
halves. Add only 15 ml (1
tbsp.) water.
Cut pepper into small slices.
Weigh the peeled potatoes
and cut them into similar
sized halves or quarters.
Cut turnip cabbage into
small cubes.
Peel and cut yam 3 cm thick
and put on pyrex bowl. Add
room temperature 250 ml
water in bowl. Cook covered
with wrap and pierce at
several times. After cooking,
drain water and serve.

REHEATING LIQUIDS
ENGLISH
Always allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has been
switched off to allow the temperature to even out. Stir during heating, if
necessary, and ALWAYS stir after heating. To prevent eruptive boiling and
possible scalding, you should put a spoon or glass stick into the beverages
and stir before, during and after heating.

Microwaves are an excellent way of defrosting frozen food. Microwaves
gently defrost frozen food in a short period of time. This can be of great
advantage, if unexpected guests suddenly show up.
Frozen poultry must be thoroughly thawed before cooking. Remove any
metal ties and take it out of any wrapping to allow thawed liquid to drain
away.
Put the frozen food on a dish without cover. Turn over half way, drain off any
liquid and remove any giblets as soon as possible.
Check the food occasionally to make sure that it does not feel warm.
If smaller and thinner parts of the frozen food start to warm up, they can be
shield by wrapping very small strips of aluminium foil around them during
defrosting.
Should poultry start to warm up on the outer surface, stop thawing and
allow it to stand for 20 minutes before continuing.
Leave the fish, meat and poultry to stand in order to complete defrosting.
The standing time for complete defrosting will vary depending on the
quantity defrosted. Please refer to the table below.
Hint :
Flat food defrosts better than thick and smaller quantities
need less time than bigger ones. Remember this hint while
freezing and defrosting food.
For defrosting of frozen food with a temperature of about -18 to -20 °C, use
the following table as a guide.
All frozen food should be defrosted using defrosting power level (180 W).
Instructions
Place the meat on a flat
ceramic plate. Shield
thinner edges with
aluminium foil. Turn over
after half of defrosting
time!

INSTALLATION & WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
Connect the blue wire to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured
black.
IMPORTANT NOTE :
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug
incorporating a fuse.
The value of the fuse is indicated on the pin face of the plug and, if it
requires replacing, a fuse approved to BS1363 of the same rating must be
used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted if the cover is detachable. If
a replacement fuse cover is required, it must be of the same colour as the
pin face of the plug.
Replacement covers are available from your Dealer. If the fitted plug is not
suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough
to reach a power point, you should obtain a suitable safety approved
extension lead or consult your Dealer for assistance. However, if there is no
alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose
of the plug. Do not connect the plug to a mains socket, as there is a risk of
shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
Consult a qualified electrician or service technician if in doubt about any
of these instructions.
There are no user-serviceable parts inside the oven and if the mains
lead of this appliance is damaged, it must only be replaced by qualified
service personnel approved by the manufacturer because special tools
are required.
WARNING
WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
This appliance must be earthed. In the event of an electrical short circuit,
earthing reduces the risk of electric shock providing an escape wire for the
electric current. The appliance is equipped with a mains lead which includes
an earth wire for connecting to the earth terminal of your mains plug. The
plug must be plugged into a socket that is properly installed and earthed.
WARNING
ENGLISH
The manufacturer of this oven will not accept any liability for damage to
persons or material for non observance of these requirements.
WARNING : Ensure that the plug and
power cord are not damaged before
use. If you have any reason to remove
the moulded plug from this appliance,
immediately remove the fuse and dispose
of the plug.
Do not connect the plug to a mains socket
under any circumstances as there is a
danger of electric shock.
CIRCUITS : Your microwave oven should
be operated on a separate circuit from
other appliances. Failure to do this may
cause the circuit breaker to trip, the fuse
to blow, or the food to cook more slowly.
The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the
following code:
• Green and yellow : Earth
• Blue : Neutral
• Brown : Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not
correspond with the coloured markings indentifying the terminals in your
plug, proceed as follows.
Connect the green and yellow wire to the terminal in the plug marked with
the letter E or the earth symbol ( ) or coloured green or green-and-yellow.

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS ON FOOD PACKAGING
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS
Microwave Symbols
On the front of your oven there is a microwave oven symbol, as shown
below.
This symbol has been introduced for your benefit when cooking or
reheating packaged food.
The IEC Power Output rating is an internationally standardised rating, so all
microwave manufacturers now use the same method of measuring power
output.
If food packaging gives cooking instructions based on IEC Power ratings,
set cooking times according to the IEC Power of your oven.
For example :
If the cooking instructions are based on a 650 W oven, then you will need to
reduce some cooking time for the MS23F301T**, MS23F302T** (800 W)
Ready meals are now very convenient and popular. These are meals which
are already prepared and cooked by the food manufacturer, and then
frozen, chilled or vacuum sealed for long life.
Increasingly, heating times for such ready meals are being based on the
Heating Categories A, B, C, D and E.
On this instance, simply match the heating category of your oven to the
instructions on the food package, and set your timer accordingly.
800W
Packaged food is also, increasingly, using a microwave symbol similar to
the one below. When you see this
800W
Symbol on food packaging, the cooking instructions are based on either the
IEC Power Output Rating, or the Reheating Categories A, B, C, D or E.
For example :
If the heating instructions are 3 minutes on HIGH for a D category oven,
then you will need to set your timer for less than 3 minutes on HIGH for the
MS23F301T**, MS23F302T** (E category).
Always remember that cooking instructions are intended only as a
guide. If you have followed the instructions and the food is still not
piping hot throughout, simply return it to the oven and cook it until it is.
