Safety Precautions
You have just purchased a SAMSUNG microwave oven. Your Owner’s
Instructions contain much valuable information on cooking with your
microwave oven:
• Safety precautions
• Suitable accessories and cookware
• Useful cooking tips
Important Safety Instructions.
Read Carefully and keep for future reference.
Before cooking food or liquids in your microwave oven, please check
that the following safety precautions are taken.
1. DO NOT use any metallic cookware in the microwave oven:
• Metallic containers
• Dinnerware with gold or silver trimmings
• Skewers, forks, etc.
Reason: Electric arcing or sparking may occur and may damage the oven.
2. DO NOT heat:
• Airtight or vacuum-sealed bottles, jars, containers
Ex) Baby food jars
• Airtight food.
Ex) Eggs, nuts in shells, tomatoes
Reason: The increase in pressure may cause them to explode.
Tip:
Remove lids and pierce skins, bags, etc.
3. DO NOT operate the microwave oven when it is empty.
Reason: The oven walls may be damaged.
Tip:
Leave a glass of water inside the oven at all times.
The water will absorb the microwaves if you accidentally set the
oven going when it is empty.
4. DO NOT cover the rear ventilation slots with cloths or paper.
Reason: The cloths or paper may catch fire as hot air is evacuated from the
oven.
5. ALWAYS use oven gloves when removing a dish from the oven.
Reason: Some dishes absorb microwaves and heat is always transferred
from the food to the dish. The dishes are therefore hot.
6. DO NOT touch heating elements or interior oven walls.
Reason: These walls may be hot enough to burn even after cooking has
finished, even though they do not appear to be so. Do not allow
inflammable materials to come into contact with any interior area of
the oven. Let the oven cool down first.
7. To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
• Do not store flammable materials in the oven
• Remove wire twist ties from paper or plastic bags
• Do not use your microwave oven to dry newspapers
• If smoke is observed, keep the oven door closed and switch off or
disconnect the oven from the power supply
8. Take particular care when heating liquids and baby foods.
• ALWAYS allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has
been switched off so that the temperature can equalize.
• Stir during heating, if necessary, and ALWAYS stir after heating.
• Take care when handling the container after heating. You may burn
yourself if the container is too hot.
At the front of the booklet you will find illustrations of the oven, and
more importantly the control panel, so that you can find the buttons
more easily.
The step-by-step procedures use three different symbols.

Important
Note
Caution
PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY
Failure to observe the following safety precautions may result in harmful
exposure to microwave energy.
(a) Under no circumstances should any attempt be made to operate the oven with
the door open or to tamper with the safety interlocks (door latches) or to insert
anything into the safety interlock holes.
(b) Do not place any object between the oven door and front face or allow food or
cleaner residues to accumulate on sealing surfaces. Ensure that the door and
door sealing surfaces are kept clean by wiping after use first with a damp cloth
and then with a soft dry cloth.
(c) Do not operate the oven if it is damaged until it has been repaired by a
qualified microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer.
It is particularly important that the oven door closes properly and that there is
no damage to the:
(1) Door, door seals and sealing surfaces
(2) Door hinges (broken or loose)
(3) Power cable
(d) The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone other than a properly
qualified microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer.

A risk of delayed eruptive boiling exists.
To prevent delayed boiling and possible scalding, you should put a plastic
spoon or glass stick into the beverages and stir before, during and after
heating.
Reason: During the heating of liquids the boiling point can be delayed;
this means that eruptive boiling can start after the container is
removed from the oven. You may scald yourself.
• In the event of scalding, follow these FIRST AID instructions:
* Immerse the scalded area in cold water for at least 10 minutes.
* Cover with a clean, dry dressing.
* Do not apply any creams, oils or lotions.
• NEVER fill the container to the top and choose a container that is wider at
the top than at the bottom to prevent the liquid from boiling over. Bottles
with narrow necks may also explode if overheated.
• ALWAYS check the temperature of baby food or milk before giving it to
the baby.
• NEVER heat a baby’s bottle with the teat on, as the bottle may explode if
overheated.
Be careful not to damage the power cable.
• Do not immerse the power cable or plug in water and keep the power
cable away from heated surfaces.
• Do not operate this appliance if it has a damaged power cable or plug.
Stand at arm’s length from the oven when opening the door.
Reason: The hot air or steam released may cause scalding.
Keep the inside of the oven clean.
Reason: Food particles or spattered oils stuck to oven walls or floor can
cause paint damage and reduce the efficiency of the oven.
You may notice a “Clicking” sound during operation(especially when the oven
is in defrosting).
Reason: This sound is normal when the electrical power output is changing.
When the microwave oven is operating without any load, the power will be cut
off automatically for safety. You can operate normally after letting it stand for
over 30 minutes.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
During cooking, you should look into the oven from time to time when food is
being heated or cooked in disposable containers of plastic, paper or other
combustible materials.
IMPORTANT
Young children should NEVER be allowed to use or play with the microwave
oven. Nor should they be left unattended near the microwave oven when it is in
use. Items of interest to children should not be stored or hidden just above the
oven.
4
Never block the air vents as the oven may overheat and
automatically switch itself off. It will remain inoperable until it has
cooled sufficiently.
For your personal safety, plug the cable into a 3-pin, 230 Volt,
50Hz, AC earthed socket. If the power cable of this appliance is
damaged, it must be replaced by a special cable (I-SHENG
SP022, KDK KKP4819D, EUROELECTRIC 3410, SAMIL SP106B, MOONSUNG EP-48E, HIGH PROJECT H.P 3). Contact
your local dealer to have it replaced. The power cable of ISRAEL
is PENCON(ZD16A), S/AFRICA APEX LEADS SA16 and
NIGERIA, GHANA, KENYA and U.A.E is PENCON(UD13A1).
Do not install the microwave oven in hot or damp surroundings
like next to a traditional oven or radiator. The power supply
specifications of the oven must be respected and any extension
cable used must be of the same standard as the power cable
supplied with the oven. Wipe the interior and the door seal with a
damp cloth before using your microwave oven for the first time.

Cooking Guide
MICROWAVES
Cooking Guide for frozen vegetables
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.
Use a suitable glass pyrex bowl with lid. Cook covered for the minimum time - see
table. Continue cooking to get the result you prefer.
Stir twice during cooking and once after cooking. Add salt, herbs or butter after
cooking. Cover during standing time.
Food
Portion Power
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 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.

REHEATING
REHEATING LIQUIDS
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.
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.
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.
REHEATING BABY FOOD
BABY FOOD: Empty into a deep ceramic plate. Cover with plastic lid. Stir well
after reheating! Let stand for 2-3 minutes before serving. Stir again and check the
temperature. Recommended serving temperature: between 30-40°C.
Power levels and stirring
Some foods can be reheated using 750 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).
BABY MILK: Pour milk into a sterilised glass bottle. Reheat uncovered. Never
heat a baby's bottle with teat on, as the bottle may explode if overheated. Shake
well before standing time and again before serving ! Always carefully check the
temperature of baby milk or food before giving it to the baby. Recommended
serving temperature: ca. 37°C.
Stir well or turn food over during reheating for best results. When possible, stir
again before serving.
REMARK:
Baby food particularly needs to be checked carefully before serving to prevent
burns.
Use the power levels and times in the next table as a guide lines for reheating.
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.

Cooking Guide(continued)
DEFROSTING
GB
All frozen food should be defrosted using defrosting power level (180 W,
).
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.
Food
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.
Meat
Minced
beef
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.
Pork
steaks
Poultry
Chicken
pieces
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:
Whole
chicken
Flat food defrosts better than thick and smaller quantities need less
time than bigger ones. Remember this hint while freezing and
defrosting food.
Fish
Fish fillets
For defrosting of frozen food with a temperature of about -18 to - 20 °C, use the
following table as a guide.

Grill Guide
GRILL
The grill-heating element is located underneath the ceiling of the cavity. It
operates while the door is closed and the turntable is rotating. The turntable's
rotation makes the food brown more evenly. Preheating the grill for 4 minutes will
make the food brown more quickly.
Cookware for grilling:
Should be flameproof and may include metal. Do not use any type of plastic
cookware, as it can melt.
Food suitable for grilling:
Chops, sausages, steaks, hamburgers, bacon and gammon rashers, thin fish
portions, sandwiches and all kinds of toast with toppings.
IMPORTANT REMARK:
Whenever the grill only mode is used, make sure that the grill-heating element is
under the ceiling in the horizontal position and not on the back-wall in the vertical
position. Please remember that food must be placed on the high rack, unless
another instruction is recommended.
Preheat the heater with the grill-function when grilling fresh and frozen food.
Use the power levels and times in this table as guide lines for grilling.

MICROWAVE + GRILL
This cooking mode combines the radiant heat that is coming from the grill with the
speed of microwave cooking. It operates only while the door is closed and the
turntable is rotating. Due to the rotation of the turntable, the food browns evenly.
Three combination modes are available with this model:
600 W + Grill, 450 W + Grill and 300 W + Grill.
Cookware for cooking with microwave + grill
Please use cookware that microwaves can pass through. Cookware should be
flameproof. Do not use metal cookware with combination mode. Do not use any
type of plastic cookware, as it can melt.
Food suitable for microwave + grill cooking:
Food suitable for combination mode cooking include all kinds of cooked food
which need reheating and browning (e.g. baked pasta), as well as foods which
require a short cooking time to brown the top of the food. Also, this mode can be
used for thick food portions that benefit from a browned and crispy top (e.g.
chicken pieces, turning them over half way through cooking). Please refer to the
grill table for further details.
Chicken
Wings
(chilled)
IMPORTANT REMARK:
Whenever the combination mode (microwave + grill) is used, make sure that the
grill heating element is under the ceiling in the horizontal position and not on the
back-wall in the vertical position. The food should be placed on the high rack,
unless another instruction is recommended. Otherwise it has to be placed directly
on the turntable. Please refer to the instructions in the following chart.
The food must be turned over, if it is to be browned on both sides.
