Do NOT use recycled paper products. Recycled
paper towels, napkins and waxed paper can
contain metal flecks which may cause arcing or
ignite. Paper products containing nylon or nylon
filaments should be avoided, as they may ignite.
It is better to UNDERCOOK RATHER THAN
OVERCOOK foods. If food is undercooked, it can
always be returned to the oven for further cooking.
If food is overcooked, nothing can be done. Always
start with minimum cooking times.
4
SMALL QUANTITIES of food or foods with
LOW MOISTURE content can burn, dry out or
catch on fire if cooked too long.

Some styrofoam trays (like those that meat is
packaged in) have a thin strip of metal
embedded on the bottom. When microwaved,
the metal can burn the floor of the oven or ignite
a paper towel.
Avoid inserting nails, wire, etc. through any
holes in the unit during operation. Never insert
a wire, nail or any other metal objects through
the holes on the cavity or any other holes or
gaps, because such objects may cause electric
shock and microwave leakage.
Potatoes, apples, egg yolks, whole acorn
squash and sausage are some examples of
food with NONPOROUS SKINS. These must
be pierced before cooking to prevent bursting.
7
POPCORN must be popped in a microwave corn
popper. Microwave popped corn produces a lower
yield than conventional popping. Do not use oven
for popcorn unless popped in a microwave
approved popcorn utensil or unless it’s
commercially packaged and recommended
especially for microwave ovens. Do not use oil
unless specified by the manufacturer.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of
electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. This appliance is equipped with a cord having
a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be inserted into an outlet that is properly installed and
grounded.
WARNING: Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or service
personnel if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded.
If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a three wire extension cord that has a three blade grounding
plug, and a three slot receptacle that will accept the plug on the appliance. The marked rating of the extension
cord should be equal to or greater than the electrical rating of the appliance.
INSTALLATION
1. Steady, flat location: When positioning the microwave oven, it should be set on a steady, flat surface.
2. Ventilation: Do not block air vents. If they are blocked during operation, the oven may overheat and eventually cause
oven failure. For proper ventilation, keep three inches of space between the oven’s top, sides, rear and the area where
the unit is to be installed.
3. Radio and TV reception: Poor television reception and radio interference may result if the oven is located close to a
TV, radio, antenna, or antenna wire. Position the oven as far from them as possible.
4. Temperature and moisture: Keep the oven away from hot air, steam or splashing liquids when choosing a place to
locate it, otherwise, the unit’s operation may be adversely affected, causing it to break down.
5. Power supply:
• Check your local power source. This microwave oven requires a 120V, 60Hz power supply.
• Use a receptacle that will accept the ground prong.
A. A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a
longer cord.
B. Longer cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
C. If a long cord or extension cord is used, (1) the marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be
at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, (2) the extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire
cord, and (3) the longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or tabletop where it
can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.
6. Examine the oven for any damage such as: Dents, a misaligned door, broken door or a dent in the cavity. If any of
the above are visible, DO NOT INSTALL THE UNIT. Notify the dealer immediately.
When using a grounding adapter, make sure
the receptacle box is fully grounded.

COOKING GUIDE
THE PRINCIPLES OF MICROWAVE COOKING
Microwaves are a form of high frequency radio waves similar to those used by a radio including AM, FM and CB.
Electricity is converted into microwave energy by the magnetron tube. From the magnetron tube, microwave
energy is transmitted to the oven where it is reflected, transmitted and absorbed by the food.
Reflection
Microwaves are reflected by metal just as a ball is bounced off of a wall. For this reason, metal utensils are not
suitable for use in the microwave. A combination of stationary interior walls and a rotating metal turntable or stirrer fan
helps assure that the microwaves are well distributed within the oven cavity to produce even cooking.
Transmission
Microwaves pass through some materials such as paper, glass and plastic much like sunlight shining through a
window. Because these substances do not absorb or reflect the microwave energy, they are ideal materials for
microwave oven cooking containers.
Absorption
During cooking, microwaves will be absorbed by food. They penetrate to a depth of about 3/4 to 1 1/2 inches.
Microwave energy activates the molecules in the food (especially water, fat and sugar), and heat is produced. If you
vigorously rub your hands together, you will feel heat produced by friction. The internal cooking of larger foods is done
by conduction as the heat which is produced by friction is conducted to the middle of the food. Foods also continue to
cook by conduction during standing time.
FOOD CHARACTERISTICS
Quantity: The amount of food placed in a microwave oven has a direct effect on the cooking time. Small amounts of food
or liquid require less cooking time than larger amounts of the same substance. As quantity increases, concentration
decreases.
Size: Small pieces cook faster than large ones. To speed cooking, cut pieces smaller than two inches (5 cm), so microwaves
can penetrate to the middle from all sides. Pieces which are similar in size and shape cook more evenly.
Shape: Many foods are uneven, like a chicken, ribs or broccoli. The thin parts will cook faster than the thick parts, while
uniformly thick foods cook evenly. To compensate for irregular shapes, place thin pieces toward the center of the dish
and thicker pieces toward the edge of the dish.
Starting Temperature: Frozen or refrigerated foods take longer to cook than foods at room temperature.
Bone and Fat: Because bones conduct heat, the side of the meat the bone is on will cook first, while boneless cuts cook
slower but more evenly. Fat attracts microwaves. The middle of these foods are cooked by heat conduction.
Moisture Content: Microwaves are attracted by moisture. Naturally moist foods absorb microwaves better than dry ones.
Add a minimum of liquid to moist foods, as excess water slows cooking.
Density: The density of food determines how easily the microwaves can penetrate and how quickly it will cook. Porous
foods, like chopped beef or mashed potatoes, microwave faster than dense ones like steak or whole potatoes.
Piercing: Steam builds up pressure in foods which are tightly covered by a skin or membrane. Pierce potatoes, egg yolks
and chicken livers to prevent bursting.
MICROWAVE TECHNIQUES
Stirring: Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or twice during cooking to equalize heat and speed microwaving.
Foods will not burn or stick, so there’s no need to stir constantly as you do in conventional cooking.
Arrangement: Arrange foods with thin or delicate ends, Iike drumsticks or asparagus spears, with the thick or tougher
portions to the outside of the dish. The parts which need more cooking will receive more energy, so food will microwave
evenly.
Spacing: Individual foods, such as baked potatoes and cupcakes will cook more evenly if placed in the oven an equal
distance apart. When possible, arrange foods in a circular pattern. Similarly, when placing foods in a baking dish, arrange
around the outside of the dish, not lined up next to each other. Food should not be stacked on top of each other.
Rearrangement: Rearrange overlapping areas, Iike tails of long fish fillets, from top to bottom, and closely packed pieces, like
meatballs, from the outside to the center of the dish.
Standing Time: Standing time is especially important in microwave cooking. Microwave energy creates heat in the outer
layers of the food. As a result of normal conduction, the food continues to cook for a few minutes after removal from the oven.
Letting roasts, large whole vegetables, casseroles and cakes stand to finish cooking allows the middles to cook completely
without overcooking, drying or toughening the outsides.

COOKING GUIDE (CONTINUED)
Covering: Covering speeds cooking time, retains moisture, tenderizes, insures even cooking and prevents spattering.
Casserole lids or plastic wrap are used for a tighter seal. Vent plastic by turning back one edge at the side of dish to form a
narrow slot where excess steam can escape. Various degrees of moisture retention are also obtained by using microwaveable
cover
Browning: Microwave energy cooks some foods so quickly that the fats and sugars within the food do not have time to
caramelize and give a "browned" appearance. Browning agents do not affect the quality of microwaved foods, but can add
color and flavor. For meats and poultry, use sauce diluted with water or melted butter, soy, Worcestershire, barbecue or steak
sauce, a sprinkling of paprika or dry gravy mix; jelly glaze or crumb coating. Frosting and topping finish cakes and breads.
Top casseroles at the end of microwaving with grated cheese or crumbs.
Some Foods Do Not Microwave Well
Eggs in Shells and hard boiled eggs can burst.
Pancakes do not crust, but they reheat well. Fully-prepared, frozen pancakes are available for microwaving.
Deep Fat Frying can cause burns.
Bottles with narrow necks may shatter if heated.
Popcorn only in special microwave poppers. Do not use oil unless specified by the manufacturer, or heat longer than
recommended. Never pop popcorn in paper bags or glass utensils or directly on the glass tray.
HOT SNACKS AND APPETIZERS
Hot hors d'oeuvres and appetizers can be prepared very quickly in the oven by the hostess, or individual servings may be
prepared by guests.
Many appetizers may be cooked on the serving platter, provided the platter does not have metal trim. A time saving tip prepare these foods ahead of time, refrigerate or freeze, and reheat in the oven at serving time. A plate of appetizers will
take only seconds to prepare or reheat.
Cheese melts very rapidly and will toughen if overcooked, so watch foods combined with cheese closely so that
overcooking will not occur. As soon as cheese starts to bubble, cooking is completed.
Appetizers that have a crisp pastry exterior are best prepared in a conventional oven.
To prepare appetizers wrapped in bacon, it will be necessary to precook the bacon and then wrap around the foods.
Oysters wrapped in bacon are easier to prepare in the broiler of your conventional range.
Seafood mixtures can be prepared in serving shells as microwave energy will pass through the seafood shells without
heating. Aluminum foil should not be used for shells.
If spreads are placed on crackers, care should be taken not to overcook as moisture from the food will cause crackers to
become soggy. Crackers used for spreads should be very dry and crisp. This helps avoid sogginess. Heat only until
spread is at serving temperature.
The time required to heat all appetizers will depend on the amount of food, and the number and the type of dish selected.
Remember the food will become very hot even if the dish is cool. Cheese mixtures retain heat longer when heated with
microwave energy.

MEATS
Guide for Cooking Meats
Roasts, chops, hamburgers and small cuts of tender meat cook beautifully in the microwave oven. Most
roasts can be cooked rare, medium rare or even well done in less than one hour. Less tender cuts of
meat such as pot roast can be simmered fork tender in a sauce or gravy. Tough cuts that require slow
cooking will do better in the conventional range or oven. A large piece of meat, especially if the shape is
uneven, should be turned over occasionally for uniform roasting.

POULTRY
Guide for Cooking Poultry
Chicken is one of the most popular foods and microwaving chicken is one of the best uses of your
microwave oven. Chicken stays juicy and tender in the microwave oven. However, juiciness prevents
browning because chicken crisps and browns only when the skin dries out enough to change color.
Standing time is important, because it allows the interior to finish cooking without toughening the delicate
breast meat.

SEAFOOD
Guide for Cooking Seafood
Microwaving is one of the easiest and most efficient ways of preparing fish and seafood, which stay
delicate and tender with quick, moist cooking. Overcooking dries out and toughens seafood, so you
should check it after the minimum time. If thick pieces like fish steaks or lobster tails are done on the
outside, but still slightly translucent in the middle, let them stand for a few minutes; internal heat will
complete the cooking.

EGGS & CHEESE
Guide for Cooking Eggs & Cheese
•
CHEESE
Cheese melts quickly and smoothly. When serving cheese as an appetizer, flavor is at peak when served
at room temperature. Use a low power level for melting. Cheese melts best when shredded and heated
with milk or other liquids. Stir cheese mixtures several times for even heating.
EGGS
Eggs cook differently by microwave. The high fat content of egg yolks absorb energy, so yolks cook faster
than whites. It's easy to poach eggs in a microwave oven, but if you want soft yolks, remove eggs from the
oven before whites are completely cooked. A brief standing time allows whites to set without overcooking
yolks. Check eggs for completion of cooking early, they toughen when overcooked.
When eggs and yolks are mixed together for omelets, scrambled eggs or custards, they cook more
evenly and need less stirring than during conventional cooking methods.
Do not try to cook eggs in the shell. Steam can build up inside the shells, causing them to burst.

VEGETABLES
Guide for Cooking Fresh Vegetables
Nutrition research indicates that many microwaved vegetables and fruits lose less water soluble vitamin C
than when cooked conventionally. This is due to shorter cooking time and to the fact that less cooking water is
needed when microwaving fruits and vegetables. Best of all, vegetables keep their fresh color, texture and
flavor. Vegetables should be covered with microwaveable cover. Vegetables cooked in their skins, such as
potatoes, are already so tightly covered that they should be pricked with a fork before cooking in order to
release excess steam. To assure even cooking, vegetables should be cut in uniform pieces and stirred
during the cooking time. Always add salt to water before adding vegetables. Reduce time a minute or
two for crisp-tender texture. Increase time for very soft texture. Remember to allow standing time of two to
five minutes after cooking because, as most foods do, vegetables will continue to cook after they are removed
from the microwave oven.

SAUCES
Guide for Cooking Sauces
Sauces boil over rapidly, especially those that contain milk. As soon as the door is opened, cooking stops.
If ingredients are not taken directly from the refrigerator, cooking time will be less than given in the recipe.
Stir sauce quickly, about every 30 seconds to eliminate lumps. Be sure to use a container twice the size of
the amount of liquid to prevent boiling over.
A wooden spoon may be left in the dish while sauce is cooking for easy stirring. If sauce is stirred slowly,
cooking time may require about 15 seconds longer. If desired, a 1 quart glass measure may be used to
prepare some sauces.

CASSEROLES
Casseroles may require occasional stirring to distribute heat. They cook more evenly when made with
ingredients of similar size and shape. Because of their shorter cooking time, casseroles cooked in the
microwave oven generally need less liquid. Casseroles with cream and cheese sauces, or meats which
need slower cooking to tenderize, cook best on power level 40.
When cooking a favorite casserole, make two and freeze the second for future use. Line a casserole or
baking dish with microwaveable cover. Transfer the cooked food to the lined container and freeze. As soon
as the food is frozen in the shape of the dish, remove it and wrap with freezer paper. Later it can be
unwrapped and returned to the container for defrosting and heating.
Dry Casserole Mixtures
Many prepared box type casseroles are available on the grocery shelves. Many have freeze dried foods or
evaporated foods included. Cooking periods are so short there may not be time for the foods to absorb the
moisture sufficiently and reconstitute the foods. To prepare this type, boil the amount of water recommended
on the package. Add the noodles (when included), cover and cook for approximately 10 minutes. Allow
noodles to stand covered for an additional 10 minutes, rinse with warm water and drain. Then follow
package directions for preparing the mix. Reheat four to six minutes before serving.

COOKING GUIDE (CONTINUED)
SANDWICHES, INCLUDING HAMBURGERS AND HOT DOGS
Guide for Heating Sandwiches
Sandwiches heat very quickly because, being porous, they have a low density. Since the filling is usually
more dense than the bread or rolls, the filling determines the heating time. Surprisingly, the filling will
always be hotter than the bread feels. Care must be taken not to overcook as the bread will become
tough. Use several thin slices of meat. Thin slices heat more quickly and are better than one thick slice.
The slow heating thick slice often causes the bread to overcook before the meat is hot. Sandwiches may
be placed on a paper plate. Remove wrapping immediately after warming. Already-baked frozen breads
and rolls may be used for sandwiches. The filling, however, should be thawed first. Toasted bread is fine
for sandwiches and provides a firm base. The toast is warmed only; no further browning occurs.

Guide for Cooking Pasta and Grains
Raw long grain rice takes time to rehydrate. Microwaving time is a little shorter than conventional, but the
greatest advantage is the ease with which you can prepare fluffy rice without sticking or burning. Cooked
rice and pasta reheat easily in the microwave oven without loss of flavor or texture. No extra water is
needed to prevent sticking or drying, so there's no danger of overcooking rice and pasta or thinning

CEREALS
Microwaveable hot cereals can be cooked directly in the cereal bowl and make cleaning up easy.
CONVENIENCE FOODS
Frozen Foods
A large variety of frozen foods, special dishes and dinners are available and the selections continue to increase. The
market is changing rapidly, therefore it is impossible to list the foods and types available and recommend cooking
procedures. In this book we can only give general directions to assist you.
T.V. Dinners
To prepare a T.V. dinner, follow the maker’s instructions for use with microwave ovens. Cooking a T.V. dinner will require
approximately five to seven minutes for the food to thaw and heat to serving temperature (depending on the types of
food). Allow plastic wrap to remain over the dish for two minutes to allow heat to equalize. Dinners that contain mashed
potatoes have presented a bit of a problem due to the large compact mass of this particular food. You may want to
remove about half the mashed potatoes after defrosting is started, then spread the remaining potatoes over the individual
section of the tray. Heat the removed mashed potatoes in an individual dish. For foods that should be crisp when cooking
is completed, remove the plastic wrap and use the broiler of a conventional range to crisp the food.
Individual Frozen Foods
These may be commercially prepared or frozen at home. Place the container of frozen food in the oven and heat only
until the food starts to defrost and can be removed easily. Empty contents into a casserole or serving dish and continue to
defrost and heat. Do not heat foods in deep foil containers. To crisp and brown special toppings, use the broiler of a
conventional range. If allowed to heat to serving temperature in a plastic container, the container will warp or melt from
the high heat of food.
Frozen Foods in Cooking Pouches or Boilable Bags
To prepare these foods, slit the plastic bag. An X-type cut will help remove the food at the end of cooking time. Place the
cut side down on a serving dish (with no metal trim). Heat foods other than vegetables for about three minutes. Frozen
vegetables require about eight to nine and a half minutes of cooking time. Allow the pouch bag to remain over the food for
about two minutes to allow time for the heat to equalize. Foods prepared in cheese or white sauce should be removed
from the pouch and placed in a glass casserole dish and stirred to prevent overcooking of the sauce around the edges of
the dish.
Complete Meals from Table Leftovers
Complete meals from leftovers can be prepared in advance. Foods can be frozen and ready for quick heating in the oven
at any time. Choose foods suitable for freezing and put serving portions on paper, glass or china (no metal trim) plates.
Wrap with recommended freezer paper and freeze quickly. When portioning the servings of food on the plate, use
approximately the same amount of each kind of food for more even heating. Mashed potatoes will heat quicker if spread
slightly and hollowed, with a pat of butter in the center. To prevent small pieces of vegetables, corn, peas, etc., from
dehydrating during heating, mound well near the center of the plate.

DESSERTS
There's always time to make dessert with a microwave oven. Fruit desserts have a remarkably fresh
flavor and texture. Microwaved cakes are higher and more tender than conventionally baked; since
cakes are usually frosted, browning is unimportant. Microwaved pie crusts are exceptionally tender and
flaky, while delicate custards and puddings are easy to prepare.

Bar cookies work best. Greasing or lining of the microwaveable baking dish is optional.
If insufficient browning disturbs you, frost, glaze or add food coloring to white or yellow batters.
A microwaveable cookie sheet can be made by covering cardboard with waxed paper.
Round glass baking dishes, and fluted or smooth microwaveable ring molds work best for cakes. You
can make a microwaveable ring mold of your own by placing a medium-size glass in the center of a
round glass baking dish.
Because your cakes will rise higher in microwave cooking, never fill microwaveable cake pans more
than half full.
Reduce baking powder and soda by approximately one-fourth when converting a conventional recipe.
Fill paper-lined muffin cups to only half full which allows for muffins to rise more than normal.
You can prepare your own "brown 'n serve" breads and rolls by baking them ahead of time in the
microwave oven. Then, place them in a conventional oven to brown prior to serving.
Breads and rolls should be reheated to the point where they are warm to the touch. Overheating or
overcooking makes bread tough and rubbery.
When making yeast bread in a microwave oven, choose a recipe with cornmeal, whole wheat flour, or
rye flour to achieve a richer color.
