7
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
Caution. Danger of burning.
The oven interior will become very
hot when operating with functions
which do not use microwave power
and also combination programmes
which do use microwave power.
~ Use oven gloves when placing food
in the oven, turning or removing it and
when adjusting the rack etc. in a hot
oven.
Take great care not to come in contact
with the upper heating / grill element
when using the Grill Y, Fan plus U,
Fan grill \, Mikrowave+Grill b,
Mikrowave+Fan grill M functions as it
becomes extremely hot. Danger of
burning.
~ Plastic containers must ony be used
with Microwave Solo. These melt at
high temperatures and if used with any
other fucntion could damage the
appliance.
~ Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated. Many
factors will affect the overall cooking
time, including the size and amount of
food, its initial temperature, changes to
recipe and the shape and size of
cooking container.
Some foods may contain microorganisms which are only destroyed by
thorough cooking, therefore when
cooking or re-heating foods, e.g.
poultry, it is particularly important that
food is fully cooked through (at
temperatures of over 70°C for more
than 10 minutes). If in doubt, select a
longer cooking or reheating time.
8
It is important that the heat is allowed to
spread evenly throughout the food
being cooked. This can be achieved by
stirring and/or turning the food, and by
observing a sufficiently long standing
time, which should be added to the
time needed for cooking, reheating or
defrosting.
~ Please be aware that using
microwave power will shorten cooking,
reheating and defrosting times
considerably compared to when using
functions without microwave power.
Make sure that you keep to the
recommended grilling times when
using the Grill Y and Fan grill\
functions.
However, excessively long cooking
times can lead to food drying out and
burning or could even cause the food
to catch fire.
– Do not use the microwave function to
dry breadcrumbs, flowers, herbs,
grain etc.
– Do not use any functions which use
the grill to heat and crisp up rolls or
bread, or to dry flowers, herbs, grain
etc.
Use the Fan plus U function for this
type of procedure and do not leave the
oven unattended.
~ Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil or
fats, as these are a fire hazard if
allowed to overheat.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Never heat undiluted alcohol in the
microwave as this can easily ignite.
If using alcohol in your recipes, please
be aware that high temperatures can
cause the alcohol to vaporise and even
to ignite on the hot heating elements.
Alcohol should be burnt off before the
dish is placed in the oven to avoid this
danger.
~ Do not heat up unopened tins or jars
of food in the oven. Pressure can build
up and they may explode, resulting in
injury or damage.
~ If smoke occurs in the oven, to avoid
fuelling any flame do not open the door.
Cancel the cooking process by
switching the appliance off, switch off
at the socket and remove the plug. Do
not open the oven door until the smoke
has dispersed.
~ Moisture in food could lead to
corrosion in the oven interior and
corrosion damage of the control panel,
worktop or housing unit.
– Always cover food when using the
Microwave (Solo) function. After food
has been brought to the boil,
continue cooking it at a lower setting
to avoid excess steam escaping.
– If you wish to complete a cooking
process using the residual heat in
the oven, do not switch the
appliance off. Leave the function
selector at the position set and turn
the temperature selector to the
lowest setting, to avoid a build-up of
condensate.
– Cover any food which is left in the
oven to be kept hot as this will
prevent it from drying out.
~ Do not use the appliance to heat up
the room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects left near the oven
could catch fire.
~ Do not lean or sit on an open door,
or place heavy items on it. This could
damage the appliance. The door can
support a maximum load of 8 kg.
~ Do not use full power to warm empty
dishes or to dry out herbs. Do not use
the appliance without food, or if it is
incorrectly loaded.
~ Do not use the microwave function
to heat up cushions or pads filled with
cherry kernels, wheat grain, lavender or
gel, such as those used in
aromatherapy. These pads can ignite
when heated even after they have been
removed from the appliance.
~ Exercise caution when cooking or
reheating food with a high sugar
content, e.g. Christmas pudding. If
heated for too long the sugar may
caramelise or ignite. Always ensure that
this type of procedure is supervised.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The microwave combination oven is
not suitable for cleaning or disinfecting
items.
Items can get extremely hot and there
is a danger of burning when the item is
removed.
~ Before serving, remember to allow a
sufficient standing time and then
always check the temperature of the
food after taking it out of the oven. The
temperature of the container is not an
indication of the temperature of the
food or liquid in it.
This is particularly important when
preparing food for babies, children
and the elderly or infirm. Shake or stir
baby milk and food thoroughly after
heating, and try it for temperature to
ensure that it will not scald the baby.
When heating food and drinks
remember that the heat is created in
the food itself and that the container will
normally be cooler. The dish is only
warmed by the heat of the food.
~ Never cook or reheat food or liquids
in sealed containers, jars or bottles.
With baby bottles, the screw top and
teat must be loosened. Otherwise
pressure builds up which can cause
the bottle or container to explode,
posing a severe risk of injury.
10
~ When heating liquids using
microwave power, the boiling rod
provided should always be placed in
the container.
When heating liquids, milk, sauces etc,
using microwave power without the
boiling rod, the boiling point of the
liquid may be reached without the
production of typical bubbles. The
liquid does not boil evenly throughout.
This so-called 'boiling delay' can cause
a sudden build up of bubbles when the
container is removed from the oven or
shaken. This can lead to the liquid
boiling over suddenly and explosively.
Danger of burning.
The formation of bubbles can be so
strong that the pressure forces the oven
door open. The user could be injured
and the appliance damaged.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Make sure that you only use
microwave safe containers when using
the Microwave (Solo) function or a
combination programme which uses
microwave power. Observe the
instructions given in "Suitable
containers for microwave ovens".
~ Ovenproof earthenware can retain a
considerable amount of moisture.
Earthenware and porcelain containers
with hollow handles and lid knobs must
only be used with microwave power if
they have vent holes which allow the
moisture to escape. Without vent holes
there can be a pressure build-up,
causing the container to crack or
shatter, with the danger of injury.
~ Do not reheat food in the oven in
heat-retaining bags which are intended
for use in normal ovens. These heatretaining bags usually contain a thin
layer of aluminium foil which reflects
microwaves. This reflected energy can,
in turn, cause the outer paper covering
to become so hot that it ignites.
~ Do not leave the oven unattended
when reheating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of plastic,
paper or other inflammable materials.
Before using single-use containers
make sure they are suitable for use in
microwave ovens. See "Suitable
containers for microwave ovens Plastics".
~ Eggs can only be cooked in their
shells using microwave heat in a
specially designed egg-boiling device
available from specialist shops.
Similarly, hard-boiled eggs should not
be reheated using microwave power as
this may lead to the eggs exploding,
even after they have been taken out of
the oven.
~ Eggs can be cooked without their
shells using microwave power only if
the yolk membrane has been
punctured several times first. The
pressure could otherwise cause the
egg yolk to explode. Danger of injury.
~ Food with a thick skin or peel, such
as tomatoes, sausages, jacket potatoes
and aubergines, should be pierced or
cut in several places to allow steam to
escape and prevent the food from
bursting.
~ To check the temperature of the
food, first interrupt the cooking process.
Only use a thermometer specifically
approved for food use to measure the
temperature of the food. Never use a

Rack with non-tip safety notches
Glass tray
The glass tray is suitable for use with all
cooking functions.
Always use the glass tray when
using the Microwave (Solo) function.
Do not place items weighing more
than 8 kg on it.
Do not place the hot glass tray on a
cold surface, such as a tiled or
granite worktop.
The glass tray could get damaged.
Use a suitable heat-resistant mat or
pot rest.
The rack is designed to be compatible
with microwaves and so can be used
with programmes which use microwave
power (combination programmes).
Do not place the rack directly on the
floor of the oven and do not use it
with the Microwave (Solo) function.
This could cause arcing which could
damage the oven.
Do not place items weighing more
than 8 kg on the rack.
The rack gets hot when used with
combination programmes which use
the microwave function. Danger of
burning.
The rack has non-tip safety notches
which prevent it being pulled right out
when it only needs to be pulled out
partially.
14
Guide to the appliance
Boiling rod
When pushing the rack back in,
always ensure that the safety
notches are at the rear of the oven
(see illustration).
When heating liquids, the boiling rod
provided should always be placed in
the container. It helps liquids to heat
evenly.
To remove the rack, lift it upwards
slightly at the front when the safety

Description of functions
Safety features
Use
System lock
The system lock prevents the appliance being used
by children, for example.
Safety cut-out
A function without microwave can be started
without selecting a cooking duration. To prevent
over-use and the consequent danger of fire, the
appliance switches off automatically after a certain
length of time. This can be between 1 hour and 10
hours, depending on the function and temperature
chosen.
If a combination programme is followed in quick
succession by another combination programme, the
magnetron (which produces the microwaves) cannot
be switched on again until after approx. 10 seconds
have elapsed. For this reason you will need to wait a
short while before starting the second programme.
Energy saving function
Use
Door contact switch
If the door is opened during a programme that is not
using microwaves, the heat in the oven automatically
switches off. The fans continue to operate. As soon
as the door is closed again, the programme will
continue.
However, if the door is opened during a
combination programme, the cooling fan will
switch off and the programme must be started again
after you have closed the door.
"Switch off time-of-day
display" function
The standard factory default setting can be changed
so that the time of day continues to run unseen in
the background. The display remains dark. The time
of day display is switched on and is visible in the
display when the appliance is operated (see
"Settings - Time of day display").
17
Functions
_ Microwave
In a microwave oven there is a highfrequency tube called a magnetron.
This converts electrical energy into
microwaves. These microwaves are
distributed evenly throughout the oven
interior and rebound off the metal sides
of the oven interior to reach the food
from all sides.
In order for microwaves to reach the
food, they must be able to penetrate
the cooking container being used (see
"Suitable containers for microwave
ovens"). Microwaves pass through a
suitable container and find their way
directly into the food.
All food contains moisture molecules
which when subjected to microwave
energy start to oscillate vigorously. The
friction caused by this vibration creates
heat which first starts developing
around the outside of the food and then
slowly penetrates towards the centre.
The moisture, fat and sugar content of
food will affect the speed at which it is
cooked.
18
As heat is produced directly in the
food,
– food can generally be cooked
without adding much liquid or
cooking oil.
– cooking, reheating and defrosting is
much quicker than when using a
function which does not use
microwave energy.
– nutrients, such as vitamins and
minerals, are generally retained.
– the colour, texture and taste of food
are not impaired.
Power level
The following power levels can be
selected:
80 W, 150 W, 300 W, 450 W, 600 W,
850 W, 1000 W
Microwaves stop being produced as
soon as the cooking process is
interrupted or the appliance door is
opened.
Functions
Functions which do not use
microwave energy
U Fan plus
This system works by the circulation of
heated air. As the heated air reaches
the food straight away, temperatures
are lower than those needed for
"Conventional heat" where the heat is
directed at the food from above and
below.
When using Fan plus you can cook on
two different levels at the same time.
Y Grill
This function can be used for grilling
thin cuts and for browning cooked
dishes, e.g. pasta bakes. The grill is
ready for use when it glows red.
P Defrost
The air in the oven is kept at room
temperature and circulated by the fan
to gently defrost frozen food.
Functions which use
microwave energy
(Combination programmes)
b Microwave+Grill
a Microwave+Fan plus
M Microwave+Fan grill
The combination programmes enable
food to be reheated and cooked
quickly with even browning results.
The Microwave+Fan plus combination
programme is the most effective
because the heat reaches the food immediately giving the greatest savings in
both time and energy.
In general when using the combination
programmes, you should not set the
microwave power level higher than
150 W for baking, and not higher than
300 W for cooking, roasting and grilling.
\ Fan grill
Temperatures used for Fan grill are
lower than those used with the Grill
function.
For grilling thick cuts, e.g. rolled meat,
poultry.
S Rapid heat-up
This function heats up the appliance
quickly to the temperature required.
The temperature indicator light will go
out when the pre-selected temperature
has been reached. The function
selector must then be turned to the
function you wish to use for cooking.
19
Before using for the first time
Before the appliance can be used,
you will need to
– press and release the controls if
they are pushed in when the
oven is delivered.
– set the time of day.
Setting the time of day
The time of day can only be entered
(or altered) when the function
selector is at "0".
The time of day you have selected has
now been entered.
If there is a power cut, the appliance
will store the current time of day for
approx. 24 hours. If more than 24 hours
have elapsed it will show "i2:00" and will
need to be re-set.
When power is restored the time of day
will flash in the display. If is is correct
press the OK sensor to confirm it.
Changing the time of day

Before using for the first time
Cleaning and heating up for
the first time
Remove any protective foil from the
front of the appliance.
See "Cleaning and care" for more
information.
Before using the appliance for the first
time,
– take all accessories out of the oven
compartment and wash them.
– heat up the appliance once with
nothing in it.
With new appliances, there is usually
a smell during first use. High
temperatures will help dissipate this
smell more quickly.
Please ensure the kitchen is well
ventilated during this operation.
Close doors to other rooms to
prevent the smell spreading
throughout the house.
^ Before heating it up it is a good idea
to wipe the interior out with a damp
cloth first. This way any dust or bits of
packaging that may have
accumulated in the oven
compartment during storage and
unpacking will be removed.
^ Turn the function selector to Fan
plus U.
The recommended temperature of
160 °C will appear.
^ Use the temperature selector to set
the highest temperature (250 °C).
^ Heat up the empty appliance for at
least an hour.
The timer can be used to set the finish
time (see "Operation - Programming
cooking durations - Automatic switchoff").
^ Leave the appliance to cool down to
room temperature.
^ Then wipe the oven interior out with a
solution of hot water and a mild
detergent, and dry it thoroughly with
a soft clean cloth.
Leave the oven door open until the
oven interior is completely dry.
21
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
Microwaves
Material and shape
The material and shape of containers
used affect cooking results and times.
Heat distribution is more even in round
and oval shaped flat containers than in
rectangular containers, providing better
results.
,Ovenproof earthenware can
– are reflected by metal,
retain a considerable amount of
moisture. Earthenware and porcelain
containers with hollow handles and
lid knobs must only be used in this
oven if they have vent holes, which
allow the moisture to escape.Without
vent holes there can be a pressure
build-up, causing the container to
crack or shatter, with the danger of
injury.
Metal
– pass through glass, porcelain,
plastic and card,
– and are absorbed by food.
22
Metal containers, aluminium foil,
metal cutlery and china with metallic
decoration such as gold rims or
cobalt bule must not be used with
microwave power.
Metal reflects microwaves and
obstructs the cooking process.
Do not use plastic pots where the
foil lid has not been completely
removed as small pieces of foil
could cause sparks.
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
Exceptions:
The rack supplied with the
appliance is suitable for use with
microwave power (combination
programmes).
However, it must not be placed on
the oven floor.
– Metal baking trays can be used with
combination programmes which use
microwave power.
– If recommended by the producer,
pre-cooked meals in aluminium foil
containers can be defrosted and
reheated in the appliance using
microwave power. Important:
Remove the lid first.
However, as food is only heated from
the top it is better to remove the food
from the aluminium foil container and
transfer it to a dish suitable for a
microwave oven. The heat
distribution will be more even.
Do not place aluminium foil dishes
on the rack in case the dish sparks
or arcs. If sparks occur, transfer
food to a microwave-safe container.
– For even defrosting and to avoid
overcooking unevenly shaped cuts
of meat, poultry or fish, small pieces
of aluminium foil may be used to
mask wing-tips or other thin parts for
the last few minutes of the process.
– Metal meat skewers or clamps
should only be used if they are very
small in comparison to the size of the
cut of meat.
Glassware
Heat-resistant glass or ceramic glass
are ideal for use in the microwave oven.
Crystal glass is unsuitable as it
contains lead which could cause the
glass to crack in the microwave.
Porcelain
Porcelain is a suitable material.
Do not use porcelain with gold or
silver edging or items with hollow
knobs or handles, as insufficient
ventilation may cause pressure.
Earthenware
Decorated earthenware is only suitable
if the decoration is beneath an all-over
glaze.
Earthenware can get very hot, and
may crack.
Glazes and colours
Some glazes and colours contain
metals which make them unsuitable
for use in a microwave oven.
Make sure that the aluminium foil is
at least 2 cm from the oven walls at
all times.
23
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
Wood
Wooden dishes are not suitable.
Moisture contained in the wood
evaporates when exposed to
microwave energy, causing the
wood to dry and crack.
Plastics
Only plastic containers and plastic
disposable containers which are
specified by the manufacturer as
suitable for use in a microwave oven
may be used. Disposable containers
are not always recyclable or
biodegradable.
,Plastic items may only be used
with Microwave _ (Solo). They
must be heat-resistant to a minimum
of 110 °C. Otherwise the plastic may
melt and fuse with the food.
Special plastic utensils designed for
use in microwave ovens are available
from good retail outlets.
Melamine is not suitable for use in this
oven. Melamine absorbs microwave
energy and gets hot. When purchasing
plasticware, make sure that it is suitable
for use in a microwave oven.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when reheating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of
plastic, paper or other inflammable
materials.
Disposable containers, such as trays
made from polystyrene, can only be
used for very short, timed warming and
reheating of food.
24
Plastic boiling bags can be used for
cooking and reheating. They should
be pierced beforehand so that
steam can escape. This prevents a
build-up of pressure and reduces
the risk of the bag bursting.
Roasting bags and tubes can be
used. Please follow the manufacturer's
instructions.
,Do not use metal clips, plastic
clips containing metal parts, or
paper ties containing wire.
There is a danger that they will ignite
when heated.
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
Testing dishes for their
suitability
Placing the dish in the oven
If in doubt as to whether glass,
earthenware or porcelain plates or
dishes are suitable for use in a
microwave oven, a simple test can
be performed:
^ Insert the glass tray in the oven at the
lowest shelf level and place the
empty item you wish to test on the
glass tray. Fill a suitable glass with
water and also place this on the
glass tray.
^ Close the door.
^ Select the microwave function _
and select the highest power level
(1000 W).
^ Confirm with "OK".
^ Enter a duration of 30 seconds and
confirm with "OK".
^ Insert the glass tray at the lowest
shelf level.
^ The dish containing the food should
always be placed in the middle of the
glass tray.
Placing the food directly on the floor
of the oven would give unsatisfactory
and uneven defrosting/cooking/
reheating results as the microwaves
would not be able to reach the food
from below.
At the end of the test, the water in
the glass should be warm and the
dish cool. If the dish is hot, it would
be unwise to use the dish.
If a cracking noise is heard
accompanied by sparks during the
test, switch the appliance off immediately. Any crockery which causes
this reaction is unsuitable for use
with microwave power.
If any doubt exists about the
suitability of a container, please
contact the supplier.
This test cannot be used to check
whether items with hollow knobs or
handles are suitable for use with
microwave power.
25
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
A cover
Do not use a cover if
– prevents too much steam escaping,
especially when cooking foods which
need longer to cook, such as
potatoes.
– food coated with breadcrumbs is
being cooked.
– speeds up the cooking process.
– prevents food from drying out.
– helps keep the oven interior clean.
– cooking meals which are to be given
a crisp finish.
– using a combination programme
which uses microwave power.
,The cover supplied may only be
used in Microwave _ (Solo) mode.
The cover can only withstand
temperatures of up to 110 °C.
Higher temperatures generated by
grilling or fan heat could cause the
plastic to distort and fuse with the
food.
When using programmes which use the
microwave function always cover the
food with lids or covers made of
microwave-safe glass or plastic, or use
a clingfilm recommened for use in a
microwave oven (pierce as instructed
by the manufacturer).
Unsuitable clingfilm can melt into the
food.
,Sealed glass containers, such as
jars of baby food, must be opened
before they are placed in the oven.
26
The cover should not form a seal
with the container. If the cover is
used with a container which only has
a narrow diameter, there might not
be enough room for condensation to
escape through the holes in the top.
The cover could get too hot and
could start to melt.

Please refer to the relevant tables.
42
Defrosting, reheating and cooking using microwave power
Before defrosting, reheating and
cooking
After defrosting, reheating and
cooking
^ Place food (including frozen) in a
dish that is suitable for the
microwave, and cover it.
Allow the food to stand at room
temperature long enough to allow the
temperature to spread evenly
throughout the food.
^ Place the container in the middle of
the glass tray and insert it at the
lowest shelf level.
With combination programmes
Only use heat-resistant containers
which are microwave-safe.
A lid is generally not required.
It is essential not to cover food when
using "Microwave+Grill", as the food
will not brown.
^ Place the glass tray on the second
lowest shelf level.
Ready made meals in aluminium
containers must be placed directly onto
the glass tray.
During the defrosting, reheating and
cooking process
Turn or stir the food several times. Stir
the food from the outside towards the
middle, as food heats more quickly
from the outside.
,After reheating food, especially
food for babies and small children,
stir the food or shake the container
and check that the temperature
does not pose any danger. Double
check after it has been left to stand.
,Be careful when removing
dishes from the appliance.
Although heat is not normally
produced in the container itself by
the microwaves (apart from
stoneware), heat transfer from the
food to the container may be
considerable, making the container
itself hot.
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated.
If in any doubt that the food has been
sufficiently reheated/cooked, place it
back in the appliance and reheat/cook
it for a little longer.
It is very important to make sure that
food which goes off easily, such as fish,
poultry and minced meat is cooked
sufficiently.
43
Defrosting, reheating and cooking using microwave power
Guidance on reheating food
Food for babies and young children
or the elderly must not be allowed to
get too hot. We do not recommend
heating or reheating foods or drinks
for babies or young children in the
microwave oven. Any decision to do
this is the responsibility of the user,
and should only be done with the
utmost care. Pasteurised or
sterilised cooked food should be
gently heated using 450 watts, and
tasted to make sure it is not too hot
for a baby's palate before serving.
When reheating other food or drink,
heat to a high temperature and allow
to cool to a suitable heat for eating.
For formula milk, follow the
manufacturer's instructions.
Always open glass jars.
Remove the lid from jars of baby
food.
Remove the screw cap and the teat
before heating up bottles of baby milk.
When reheating liquids place the
boiling rod supplied into the cup or
glass.
Never reheat hard boiled eggs in a
microwave oven, even without the
shell. The eggs can explode.
44
Guidance on cooking
Food with a thick skin or peel, such
as tomatoes, sausages, jacket
potatoes and aubergines, should be
pierced or cut in several places to
allow steam to escape and prevent
the food from bursting.
Similarly, hard-boiled eggs should
not be cooked using the Microwave
_ function as this may lead to the
eggs exploding, even after they
have been taken out of the oven.
Eggs can, however, be cooked
using microwave power if you have
purchased special containers
designed for this purpose.
Eggs can be cooked without their
shells using microwave power only if
the yolk membrane has been
punctured several times first. The
pressure could otherwise cause the
egg yolk to explode.

The glass tray placed on the lowest level can be used
for defrosting food.
Reheating food
Always cover food when reheating it, except when
reheating meat/fish coated in breadcrumbs.
Cooking vegetables
Add a little water to vegetables which have been kept
stored.
Vegetable cooking times depend on the texture of the
vegetable. Fresh vegetables contain more water than
vegetables which have been stored and usually cook
more quickly.
Cooking frozen readymeals
These can be defrosted and reheated or cooked at the
same time. Please follow instructions given on the
packet.
Problem
Possible cause and remedy

of a set time.
Check that the correct duration was selected for the
power level chosen when cooking or reheating in
microwave mode.
The lower the power level the longer the duration.
Food cools down too
quickly after being
reheated or cooked in
microwave mode.
When cooked by microwaves, food begins to cook from
the outside first, the inside of the food relying on the
slower conduction of heat.
If food is cooked at a high power level it is possible that
the heat may not have reached the centre of the food.
Food may be warm in the middle but cool on the edge.
When reheating food with different densities, such as
plated meals, it is sensible to start with a low power
level and select a longer reheating time.

Functions
Bakeware

For the best baking results make sure
that you chose bakeware in a material
suitable for the oven function you are
using.
Ideal for baking biscuits, sponges,
choux pastry, puff pastry and filo
pastry.
ß Microwave+Fan plus a
Suitable for doughs which require
longer baking, such as rubbed in and
beaten mixtures and yeast recipes.
The baking duration is shorter.
A microwave power level of no more
than 150 W is used throughout the
baking duration.
Fan plus U
Bakeware made of any heat-resistant
material is suitable. Light-coloured,
thin-walled, non-reflective metal tins
can be used, but results may not be as
good as with dark non-reflective tins.
Microwave+Fan plus a
Only use heat-resistant bakeware which
is microwave-safe (see "Suitable
containers for microwaves" ), e.g
bakeware made of heat-resistant glass
or ceramics, as microwaves can
penetrate these materials.
Metal bakeware, on the other hand,
reflects microwaves, which are then
only able to access the cake from
above. A longer baking time would be
required. Furthermore, metal baking
tins can also cause sparking.
To check for suitability, place the tin on the
glass tray, and make sure it does not
touch the interior walls. If sparking
continues, do not use this tin again with a
microwave combination programme.

Useful tips
You can also programme the duration
(see "Operation - Programming cooking
durations). However, do not delay the
start too long when baking as the cake
mixture or dough will dry out, and the
raising agents will lose their
effectiveness.
Place cakes being baked in retangular
tins with the longer side across the
width of the oven for optimum heat
distribution and even results.
50
Only bake cakes, pizza, chips etc.
until they are golden brown. Do not
overcook them.
Even baking and browning is achieved
when baking cakes, pastries, frozen
foods such as chips, croquettes, pizza,
baguettes etc. by
– selecting the lowest temperature
given in the recipe/cooking
instructions on the packaging.
Do not set a temperature higher than
that recommended. Increasing the
temperature may reduce the cooking
time, but will lead to uneven
browning, and unsatisfactory
cooking results.
– Check if the food is cooked at the
end of the shortest time quoted.
To check if a cake is ready, insert a
wooden skewer into the centre.
It is ready if the skewer comes out
clean, without dough or crumbs
sticking to it.
– Place chips, croquettes and similar
types of food on baking parchment.
Baking
Problem
Possible cause and remedy
Cakes or biscuits are
not properly cooked
after the time
recommended in the
chart.
Check that the correct temperature has been set.
Check whether there has been a change to the recipe.
The addition of more liquid or more eggs makes a
moister mix which would take longer to cook.
Check the material and colour of the baking tins being
used.
Bright shiny tins are not very suitable. Try using a
different tin next time. These reflect heat, making it
more difficult for the heat to reach the food. The food
will not cook through properly.
Cakes or biscuits are
unevenly browned.
There is always likely to be small differences in the level
of browning.
If the difference is very noticeable, check whether the
temperature setting is high enough, and also the
material and colour of the baking tins.
Bright shiny tins are not very suitable. Try using a
different tin next time. These reflect heat, which means
that the heat does not penetrate the food effectively,
resulting in uneven or poor browning.

The roasting time is shorter.
The following microwave power levels
should be used throughout the cooking
duration.
The following containers are suitable:
Roasting tins, casserole dishes,
ovenproof glass, earthenware.
Make sure that the pot and lid have
heat-resistant handles.
– For meat and fish: max. 300 W,

Roasting
Pot roasting
Shelf level
Roasting in a covered pot is highly
recommended:
Fan plus U
– The meat stays succulent,
^ Insert the rack with the food on it at
the lowest shelf level.
– and the oven stays cleaner, too.
– It also ensures that sufficient stock
remains for making gravy.
Season the meat and place it in the pot.
Add some butter or margarine or baste
with a little oil or cooking fat. Add about
125 ml water when roasting a large,
lean joint of meat (2 – 3 kg) or poultry
with a high fat content.
Put meat or poultry into the oven
without pre-heating. Exception: Preheat the oven at the temperature
suggested when roasting beef and
beef fillet.
54
Microwave+Fan plus a
^ Place the rack or the glass tray on
the lowest shelf level.
Temperature
Please refer to the roasting chart.
The larger the joint of meat (max. 3 kg,
except for poultry), the lower the
temperature required. For poultry
above 3 kg select a temperature
approx. 10 °C lower than that given in
the roasting chart. Roasting will take
longer at the lower temperature, but the
poultry will be more evenly cooked, and
the skin is less likely to burn.
Roasting
Roasting time
Useful tips
The roasting time will depend on the
type of meat, the size and thickness of
the cut, The traditional British method is
to allow 20 minutes per lb/450 g,
according to the type of meat, plus
20 minutes, adjusting the duration as
roasting proceeds to obtain the
required result.
Take the meat out of the oven, wrap in
aluminium foil and leave to stand for
about 10 minutes. This helps retain the
juices when the meat is carved.
Browning only occurs towards the end
of the roasting time.
Remove the lid about 15 – 20 minutes
before the end of the roasting time if a
more extensive browing result is
required.
Roasting on the rack
When roasting on the rack set a
temperature of approx. 20 °C lower than
in a covered pot.
Add a little fat or oil to very lean meat or
place a few strips of streaky bacon on
the top.
Do not add too much liquid during
cooking as this will hinder the browning
process.
Roasting bags
When using a roasting bag, follow the
manufacturer's instructions.
Roasting poultry
For a crisp finish, baste the poultry ten
minutes before the end of cooking time
with slightly salted water.
Frozen meat
Deep frozen meat should be thoroughly
defrosted before roasting.

One way of finding out how far through
a piece of meat has been cooked is to
press down on it with a spoon.
– If there is very little resistance to the
pressure of the spoon, it will still be
red on the inside ("rare").
– If there is some resistance the inside
will be pink ("medium").
– If there is great resistance, it is
throughly cooked through ("well
done").

Defrosting without microwave power
Function
Useful tips
,It is particularly important to
ß Defrost P
The air in the oven is kept at room
temperature and circulated by the fan
to gently defrost frozen food.
Shelf level
^ Place the food to be defrosted on the
glass tray or into a suitable dish.
Small pieces of poultry can be placed
on an upturned saucer in the glass tray.
This way it will not be lying in defrosted
liquid.
^ Depending on the size of the food
being defrosted select the 1st or 2nd
shelf level from the bottom.
Defrosting times
The time needed for defrosting
depends on the type and weight of the
food, and at what temperature it was
deep frozen. The following chart is for
guidance only. It is important to
manually check the food to ensure it is
thoroughly defrosted.

observe food hygiene rules when
defrosting poultry. Do not use the
liquid from the defrosted poultry.
Pour it away, and wash the tray, the
sink and your hands. Danger of
salmonella poisoning.
Fish does not need to be fully defrosted
before cooking.
Defrost so that the surface is sufficiently
soft to take herbs and seasoning.
,Do not refreeze food once it has
thawed.
Cleaning and care
,Do not use a steam cleaner to
clean the appliance. The steam
could reach electrical components
and cause a short circuit.
Clean the oven interior, inside of the
door and door seal as soon as it has
cooled down. Waiting too long can
make cleaning unnecessarily
difficult and in some cases
impossible.
In certain circumstances, very heavy
soiling can even damage the
appliance.
Oven interior
,The oven interior can get hot
during use. Danger of burning.
The oven interior is made from
stainless steel which has been treated
with a special finish called
PerfectClean. This finish has an
iridescent appearance. PerfectClean
surfaces have very good anti-stick
properties and are easy to clean.
However, it is very important to clean
the surfaces each time the microwave
combination oven is used. The surfaces
will become harder to clean and the
anti-stick properties will deteriorate if
soiling is not removed after each use
and allowed to build-up.
If the oven is used frequently without
being cleaned it may become very
difficult or even impossible to get clean
again.
Normal soiling
Do not use too much water on the
cloth or sponge and do not let water
or any other substance find its way
into any openings.
Clean the surfaces with hot water and a
little washing-up liquid applied with a
well wrung-out sponge.
Cleaning is easier if a little washing-up
liquid is applied to the soiling and left to
soak in for a few minutes before
cleaning.
If necessary, the reverse of a nonscouring washing-up sponge can be
used.
After cleaning, rinse all surfaces
thoroughly with clean water. The water
must run off the surface easily. Any
residual cleaning agents will hinder this
effect.
Heavy soiling
Allow the PerfectClean surfaces to cool
down to room temperature before
cleaning. Apply a proprietary oven
cleaning spray, and leave to take effect
for up to ten minutes only. Miele oven
cleaning spray can be left on for longer.
Always follow the instructions on the
packaging.
If necessary the scouring pad on the
back of a non-scratch washing-up
sponge or a soft nylon brush can be
used to loosen the soiling. Repeat the
process if necessary.
After cleaning, rinse thoroughly with
clean water and then dry thoroughly.
61
Cleaning and care
The following cause lasting damage
to the surface structure and reduce
the anti-stick effect. They must not
be used on PerfectClean surfaces:
– Abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners.
– Cleaning agents for ceramic hobs.
– Wire wool or metal scourers.
– Abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents.
– Oven spray must not be used in a
hot oven or left on for too long.
– Spot cleaning.
62
Note:
– Soiling such as spilt juices and cake
mixtures are best removed whilst the
oven or tray is still warm. Excercise
caution, make sure the oven is not
too hot - danger of burning.
– Spilt fruit juices may cause lasting
discolouration to the surfaces. This
discolouration is permanent but will
not affect the efficiency of the finish.
Clean these following the instructions
given above and do not use force to
remove them.
– To neutralise odours in the oven, put
a container of water with some lemon
juice in the oven and simmer for a
few minutes.
Cleaning and care
Oven interior roof
If the oven interior roof is badly soiled,
the grill element can be lowered to
make cleaning easier.
,Make sure the oven heating
elements are switched off and cool.
Danger of burning.
^ Lower the grill element gently.
Do not use force to lower it as this
can cause it to break.
^ After cleaning the grill element, raise
it gently back up again. Refit the nut
and tighten to secure the grill
element back in position.
^ To lower the grill element, the nut
needs to be unscrewed.
63
Cleaning and care
Door interior and door seal
,The oven interior can get hot
during use. Danger of burning.
Clean the interior of the door and the
seal using a damp Miele microfibre Ecloth (see "Optional accessories") or
with a clean sponge and a solution of
hot water and washing-up liquid. Then
dry with a soft cloth.
,Check the door and door seal at
regular intervals for any sign of
damage. If any damage is noticed,
the oven should not be used again
in microwave mode until the fault
has been rectified by a service
technician.
Glass surfaces are susceptible to
scratches. Scratches can cause
glass surfaces to break.
When cleaning glass surfaces do not
use:
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– hard, abrasive sponges and
brushes, e.g. pot scourers,
– sharp metal scrapers.
64
Appliance front
Remove any soiling on the front of
the appliance straight away. Soiling
that is left too long is harder to
remove, and the surface could
become discoloured or altered.
Clean the front using a damp Miele
microfibre E-cloth (see "Optional
accessories") or with a clean sponge
and a solution of hot water and
washing-up liquid. Then dry with a soft
cloth.
The external surfaces of this
appliance are all susceptible to
scratching. Scratches on glass
surfaces could even cause a
breakage.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can alter or discolour
external surfaces.
Cleaning and care
To prevent damage to external
surfaces, when cleaning do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
Accessories supplied
