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 irreparably damage the glass on the
inside of the door.
Water in the cooking compartment when the cooking
compartment is hot: Never pour water into the cooking
compartment when the cooking compartment is hot. Steam
will be created. The temperature change can cause damage
to the ceramic floor panel.
Foil containers: Do not use foil containers in the appliance.
They damage the appliance by producing sparks.
Moist food: Do not store moist food in the closed cooking
compartment for long periods. This will damage the enamel.
Do not use the appliance to store food. This can lead to
corrosion.
Cooling with the appliance door open: Only leave the
cooking compartment to cool with the door closed. Do not
trap anything in the appliance door. Even if the door is only
slightly ajar, the fronts of adjacent units may be damaged
over time.
Heavily soiled seal: If the seal is very dirty, the appliance door
will no longer close properly during operation. The fronts of
adjacent units could be damaged. Always keep the seal
clean.
Using the appliance door for standing on or placing objects
on: Do not stand or place anything on the open appliance
door. Do not place ovenware or accessories on the appliance
door.

high. Use a power setting no higher than 600 watts. Always
place the popcorn bag on a glass plate. The disc may jump if
overloaded.
the surface. Even if the container only
vibrates a little, the hot liquid may
suddenly boil over and spatter. When
heating, always place a spoon in the
container. This will prevent delayed
boiling.
Risk of injury!

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.
Unsuitable ovenware
Metal ovenware is unsuitable. Metal does not allow microwaves
to pass through. Food in covered metal containers will remain
cold.
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.

should care for and clean your appliance correctly.
: Risk of short circuit!
Never use high-pressure cleaners or steam cleaners to clean
the oven.
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 traces 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 agents 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.
Glass cover for the
cooking compartment light
Hot soapy water:
Clean with a dish cloth.

cleaning.
Accessories
Hot soapy water:
Soak and clean with a dish cloth or a
brush.
: 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:
■
■
any caustic 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,
■
hard scouring pads and sponges,
■
cleaning agents with high concentrations of alcohol.
Rinse out new sponge cloths thoroughly before use.
For easier cleaning, you can switch on the oven light. Open the
appliance door to do so.
Malfunction table
Malfunctions often have simple explanations. Please refer to the
malfunction table before calling the after-sales service.
If a meal does not turn out exactly as you wanted, refer to the
Tested for you in our cooking studio section, where you will
find plenty of cooking tips and tricks.

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.
■
After defrosting, allow the food to defrost for a further 10 to
90 minutes so that it acquires an even temperature.
Vegetables
Changing the programme
■
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.
Note: Cut into equal sized pieces. Add a little salt and a
tablespoon of water for every 100 g of potatoes.
Cancelling the programme
■
Put the frozen food on shallow tableware, e.g. a glass or
porcelain plate.

blanched, not pre-cooked vegetables. It is not suitable for
frozen vegetables in cream sauce. Add 1 to 3 tablespoons of
water. Do not add water to spinach or red cabbage.

ceramic or the universal pan. Observe the accessories tips in
the programme table.
Note: Fish fillet, fresh: add 1 to 3 tablespoons of water or
lemon juice.

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.
■
■
■
The times specified in the tables are only guidelines. They
depend on the quality and consistency of the food.
Use the accessories supplied. Additional accessories may be
obtained from specialist retailers or from the after-sales
service.
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 wire rack.
■
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
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.

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.

Turn during defrosting.
Only for cakes without icing, cream or
crème pâtissière, separate the pieces
of cake.
Only for cakes without icing, cream or
gelatine
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.
Note: Place the ovenware on the cooking compartment floor.

Heating food
: 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.
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.
