Notes regarding ovenware
Suitable ovenware
Suitable dishes are heat-resistant ovenware made of glass,
glass ceramic, porcelain, ceramic or heat-resistant plastic.
These materials allow microwaves to pass through.
You can also use serving dishes. This saves you having to
transfer food from one dish to another. You should only use
ovenware with decorative gold or silver trim if the manufacturer
guarantees that they are suitable for use in microwaves.
The microwave power can be set to 900 watts for a
maximum of 30 minutes. With all other power settings a
maximum cooking time of 1 hour 30 minutes is possible.
Setting the microwave
Example: microwave power 360 W, cooking time 17 minutes

to pass through. Food in covered metal containers will remain
cold.
4. Press the start button.
Caution!
Creation of sparks: 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 destroy the glass on the inside of the door.
Ovenware test
Do not switch on the microwave unless there is food inside. The
following ovenware test is the only exception to this rule.
Perform the following test if you are unsure whether your
ovenware is suitable for use in the microwave:
1. Heat the empty ovenware at maximum power for ½ to
1 minute.
2. Check the temperature occasionally during that time.
The ovenware should still be cold or warm to the touch.
The ovenware is unsuitable if it becomes hot or sparks are
generated.

Care and cleaning
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.
: Risk of electric shock!
Penetrating moisture may cause an electric shock. Do not use
any high-pressure cleaners or steam cleaners.
: Risk of burns!
■
metal or glass scrapers to clean the door seal,
■
any coarse scouring pads or cleaning sponges,
■
cleaning agents with high concentrations of alcohol.
Wash new sponge cloths thoroughly before use.
Area
Cleaning agents
Appliance front
Hot soapy water:
Clean using a dish cloth and then dry
with a soft cloth. Do not use glass cleaners or metal or glass scrapers for cleaning.
Stainless steel
Hot soapy water:
Clean using a dish cloth and then 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 retailers.
Cooking compartment made of stainless steel
Hot soapy water or a vinegar solution:
Clean using a dish cloth and then dry
with a soft cloth.
If the oven is very dirty: use oven
cleaner, but only when cooking compartment is cold. It is best to use a stainless-steel sponge. Do not use oven
spray or other aggressive oven cleaners
or abrasive materials. Scouring pads,
rough sponges and pan cleaners are
also unsuitable. These scratch the surface. Allow the interior surfaces to dry
thoroughly.
Door panels
Glass cleaner:
Clean with a dish cloth. Do not use a
glass scraper.
Door seal
Do not remove.
Hot soapy water:
Clean with a dish cloth; do not scrub. Do
not use a metal or glass scraper for
cleaning.
Never clean the appliance immediately after switching off. Let
the appliance cool down.
: Risk of injury!
Scratched glass in the appliance door may develop into a
crack. Do not use a glass scraper, or sharp or abrasive
cleaning aids or detergents.
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.

Notes on the automatic programmes
Notes
■ Take the food out of its packaging and weigh it. If it is not
possible to enter the exact weight, you should round it up or
down.
■
For the programmes, always use microwave-proof cookware,
e.g. made of glass or ceramic. Observe the accessories tips
in the programme table.
■
Place the food in the cold appliance.
■
It is not possible to set a weight outside the weight range.
■
■
With many dishes, a signal sounds after a certain time. Turn
or stir the food.
A table of suitable types of food with appropriate weight
ranges and the accessories required can be found in the
section after the notes.
Defrosting
Notes
■ As far as possible, freeze and store food flat and in portionsized quantities at -18 °C.
■
■
■
■
■
Place the frozen food on a flat dish, e.g. a glass or porcelain
plate.
After defrosting in the appliance, leave the food to continue
defrosting for a further 10 to 30 minutes until it reaches an
even temperature.
Liquid will be produced when meat, poultry or fish is
defrosted. Drain off this liquid when turning meat and poultry
and under no circumstances use it for other purposes or
allow it to come into contact with other foods.
Place beef, lamb and pork on the cookware fatty-side down
first.
Bread should only be defrosted in the required amounts, as it
quickly becomes stale.
Dish
■
■
After turning, remove any minced meat that has already
defrosted.
Whole poultry should be placed in the cookware breast-side
down and poultry portions skin-side down.
Potatoes
Notes
Boiled potatoes: cut into equal sized pieces. Add a little salt
and 2 tablespoons of water for every 100 g of potatoes.
■
■
Potatoes boiled in their skins: use potatoes of equal size.
Wash the potatoes and prick the skin several times. Place the
wet potatoes in a dish. Do not add water.
Rice
Notes
Rice foams a lot during cooking. Therefore, use a high-sided
dish with a lid. Enter the uncooked weight (without liquid).
Add two to two and a half times the amount of liquid to the
rice.
■
■
Do not use boil-in-the-bag rice.
Vegetables
Notes
Fresh vegetables: cut into pieces of equal size. Add
2 tablespoons of water for every 100 g vegetables.
■
■
Frozen vegetables: this programme is only suitable for
blanched, not pre-cooked vegetables. It is not suitable for
frozen vegetables in cream sauce. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of
water per 100 g. Do not add water to spinach or red
cabbage.

Some dishes need to rest in the oven after the programme has
ended.

Here you will find a selection of recipes and the ideal settings
for them. We show you which microwave power setting is best
for your dish and there are tips about cookware and
preparation.
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.
■
■
■
The times specified in the tables are only guidelines. They
depend on the quality and consistency of the food.
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.
Stir or turn the food several times during the heating time.
Check the temperature.
Defrosting
Notes
Place the frozen food in an open container on the cooking
compartment floor.
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 cookware 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
Liquid will be produced when meat, poultry or fish is
defrosted. Drain off this liquid when turning meat and poultry
and under no circumstances use it for other purposes or
allow it to come into contact with other foods.
Leave defrosted items to stand at room temperature for a
further 10 to 30 minutes so that the temperature can even
out. The giblets can be removed from poultry at this point.

Defrosting, heating up or cooking frozen food
■
Turn several times, remove meat
which has already defrosted
■
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.
■
■
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.
Note: Place the ovenware on the cooking compartment floor.
After heating, allow the food to stand for a further 2 to
5 minutes so that it can achieve an even temperature.

Heating food
Caution!
: Risk of scalding!
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.
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.

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.
