COOKING
COMPARISON
GUIDE
Cooking with your new oven offers a wide variety of
food preparation
options:
microwave
cooking,
convection cooking, and combination cooking.
Combination
cooking combines microwave energy
with convection to cook with speed and accuracy, while
browning and crisping to perfection.
Microwave cooking uses very short, high-frequency
radio waves. The movement of the microwaves through
the food generates heat and cooks most foods faster
than regular methods, while retaining their natural
texture and moisture. Microwave cooking heats food
directly, not the cookware or the interior of the oven.
Reheating
is easy and defrosting
is particularly
convenient
because
less time is spent in food
preparation.
You can use microwave cooking, convection cooking,
or combination cooking to cook by time. Simply preset
the length of cooking time desired and your oven turns
off automatically.
The following guide shows at a glance the difference
between microwave, convection, and combination
cooking.
Convection cooking constantly circulates heated air
around the food, creating even browning and sealed-in
flavor by the constant motion of hot air over the food
surfaces.

COOKWARE GUIDE
Microwave Cooking
Most heat-resistant, non-metallic cookware is safe for use in your microwave oven.
However, to test cookware before using, follow these steps:
1. Place the empty cookware in the microwave oven.
2. Measure 1 cup of water in a glass measuring cup and place it in the oven beside the cookware.
3. Microwave on 100% power for 1 minute. If the dish is warm, it should not be used for microwave cooking.
Convection Cooking
• Metal Pans are recommended for all types of baked products, but especially where browning or crusting is
important.
• Dark or dull finish metal pans are best for breads and pies because they absorb heat and produce a crisper crust.
• Shiny aluminum pans are better for cakes, cookies, or muffins because these pans reflect heat and help produce
a light, tender crust.
• Glass or glass-ceramic casserole or baking dishes are best suited for egg and cheese recipes due to the
cleanability of glass.
Combination Cooking
• Glass or glass-ceramic baking containers are recommended. Be sure not to use items with metal trim as it may
cause arcing (sparking) with oven wall or oven shelf, damaging the cookware, the shelf or the oven.
• Heat-resistant plastic microwave cookware (safe to 450 ° F) may be used, but is not recommended for foods
that require crusting or all-around browning, because plastic is a poor conductor of heat.

TIPS FOR MICROWAVE
COOKING
BROWNING
Meat and poultry with high fat content cooked for at
least 10 to 15 minutes will brown lightly. Foods cooked
a shorter time can be brushed with a browning agent,
such as Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, or barbecue
sauce.
ARRANGEMENT
Do not stack food. Arrange in a single layer in the dish
for more even cooking. Because dense foods cook
more slowly, place thicker portions of meat, poultry,
fish, and vegetables toward the outside of the dish.
TESTING FOR DONENESS
Foods cook quickly in a microwave oven; test frequently
for doneness.
COVERING
A cover will trap heat and steam and cause the food to
cook more quickly. Use a lid or microwave-safe plastic
wrap with one corner folded back to vent the excess
steam. Lids on glass casseroles can become hot
during cooking; always handle carefully. Waxed paper
will prevent the food from splattering in the oven and
help retain heat. When warming bread items, use
waxed paper, napkins, or paper towels. To absorb extra
moisture, wrap sandwiches and fatty foods in paper
towels.
STANDING TIME
Food often needs to stand from 2 to 15 minutes after
being removed from the oven. Usually, you need to
cover food during standing time to retain heat. Remove
most foods when they are slightly undercooked and
they will finish cooking during standing time. The
internal temperature of food will rise about 10 ° F during
standing time.
SPACING
Arrange individual foods, such as baked potatoes,
cupcakes, and hors d'oeuvres in a circle and at least
1 inch apart. This will help the food cook more evenly.
SHIELDING
To prevent some portions of rectangular or square
dishes from overcooking, you may need to shield
them with small strips of aluminum foil to block the
microwaves. You can also cover poultry legs and
wing tips with foil to keep them from overcooking.
Always keep foil at least 1 inch from oven walls
to prevent arcing.
STIRRING
Stirring blends flavors and redistributes the heat in
foods. Always stir from the outside toward the center
of the dish. Food at the outside of the dish heats first.
PIERCING
Pierce the shell, skin, or membrane of foods before
cooking to prevent them from bursting. Foods that
require piercing include yolks and whites of eggs, hot
dogs, clams, oysters, and whole vegetables, such as
potatoes and squash.
TURNING
Large foods, such as roasts and whole poultry, should
be turned so that the top and bottom cook evenly. Also
turn over chicken pieces and chops.
10
PRECAUTIONS
• Place the front surface of the door three inches or
more from the countertop edge to avoid accidental
tipping of the microwave oven during normal use.
° To program the oven, make sure you touch the center
of each pad firmly since the areas between the pads
will not activate the oven. A tone will sound each time
a pad is touched correctly. Do not touch several pads
• Use thermometers that have been approved for
microwave oven cooking.
• The turntable must always be in place when you
operate the oven.
• Do not use your microwave oven to cook eggs in the
shell. Pressure can build up inside the shell, causing it
to burst.
at once.
• There are several precautions to follow when
microwaving popcorn:
-- Do not pop popcorn, except in a microwave-safe
container or commercial packages designed for
microwave ovens.
-- Never try to pop popcorn in a paper bag that is not
microwave-approved.
-- Overcooking may result in smoke and fire.
-- Do not repop unpopped kernels.
-- Do not reuse popcorn bags.
-- Listen while corn pops. Stop oven when popping
slows to 2-3 seconds between pops.
-- Do not leave microwave unattended while popping
• Do not strike the control panel with silverware,
cookware, etc. Breakage may occur.
• Always use caution when taking cookware out of the
oven. Some dishes absorb heat from the cooked food
and may be hot. See the "Cookware Guide" earlier in
this section for more information.
• Do not rinse cookware immediately after cooking. This
may cause breakage. Also, always allow the turntable
to cool before removing it from the oven.
• Never operate the oven when it is empty. Food or
water should always be in the oven during operation
to absorb the microwave energy.
• Do not use the oven to dry newspapers or clothes.
They may catch fire.
corn.
-- Follow directions on bag.
CLEANING
DOOR
For best performance and safety, the inner door panel
and the oven front frame should be free of food or

prevent an accidental oven start.
grease buildup. Wipe often with a mild detergent; then
rinse and wipe dry. Never use cleaning powders or
rough pads.
INTERIOR
Wipe the oven inside and outside with a soft cloth and
a mild detergent solution. Then rinse and wipe dry. This
should be done weekly or more often, if needed. Never
use cleaning powders or rough pads.
After cleaning the control panel, touch CLEAR to clear
any entries that might have been entered accidentally
while cleaning the panel. Also make sure that the
turntable and rotating ring are in the right position.
Excessive oil splatters on the inside top will be difficult
to remove if left for many days. Wipe splatters with a
wet paper towel, especially after cooking chicken or
bacon.
REMOVABLE PARTS
The turntable and rotating ring are removable. They
should be hand-washed in warm (not hot) water with a
mild detergent and a soft cloth. Once they are clean,
rinse well and dry with a soft cloth. Never use cleaning
powders, steel wool, or rough pads.
• The turntable may be cleaned at the sink. Be careful
not to chip or scratch the edges as this may cause
the turntable to break during use.
• The rotating ring should be cleaned regularly.

TIPS FOR CONVECTION
COOKING
This section gives you cooking instructions and procedures for operating each convection function.
Please read these instructions carefully.
Convection cooking circulates hot air through the oven cavity with a fan. The constantly moving air surrounds the
food to heat the outer portion quickly, creating even browning and sealed-in flavor by the constant motion of hot air
over the food surfaces. Your oven uses convection cooking whenever you use the Convection Command Pads.
DO NOT USE THE OVEN WITHOUT THE TURNTABLE IN PLACE.
1. You can cook food with the Metal Cooking Rack on the turntable.
2. Do not cover turntable or metal rack with aluminum foil. It interferes with the flow of air that cooks the food.
3. Round pizza pans are excellent cooking utensils for many convection-only items.
Choose pans that do not have extended handles.
4. Use convection cooking for items like souffles, breads, cookies, angel food cakes, pizza, and for some meat
and fish cooking.
5. You do not need to use any special techniques to adapt your favorite oven recipes to convection cooking;
however, you may need to lower some temperatures or reduce some cooking times from the convection oven
cooking directions. See examples in the charts in this section.
6. When baking cakes, cookies, breads, rolls, or other baked foods, most recipes call for preheating. Preheat the
empty oven just as you do a regular oven. You can start heavier dense foods such as meats, casseroles, and
poultry without preheating.
7. All heatproof cookware or metal utensils can be used in convection cooking.
8. As in conventional cooking, the distance of the food from the heat source affects cooking results. Refer to
the charts in this Use and Care Guide.
9. Use metal utensils only for convection cooking. Never use for microwave or combination cooking since arcing
and damage to the oven may occur.
10. After preheating, if you do not open the door, the oven will automatically hold at the preheated temperature
for 30 minutes.
PRECAUTIONS
• The oven cavity, door, turntable, rotating ring, metal racks, and cooking utensils will become very hot.
USE THICK OVEN GLOVES when removing the food, cooking utensil, metal rack, and turntable from the oven
after convection cooking.
• Do not use lightweight plastic containers, plastic wraps, or paper products during any convection cycle.

NOTES:
, By using the MORE/LESS in convection cooking, you
can set the desired temperature.
• The temperature range has 10 steps from 225_F to

CONVECTION
COOKING
GUIDE
1. Always use metal accessory rack when convection baking. (See page 6.)
2. Aluminum pans conduct heat quickly. For most convection baking, light, shiny finishes give best results
because they prevent overbrowning in the time it takes to cook the center areas. Pans with dull (satin-finish)
bottoms are recommended for cake pans and pie pans for best bottom browning.
3. Dark or non-shiny finishes, glass, and pyroceram absorb heat which may result in dry, crisp crusts.
4. Preheating the oven is recommended when baking foods by convection.
5. To prevent uneven heating and save energy, open the oven door to check food as little as possible.

TIPS FOR COMBINATION COOKING
COMBINATION
This section gives you instructions to operate each
combination cooking function. Please read these
instructions carefully, Sometimes combination
microwave-convection cooking is suggested to get the
best cooking results since it shortens the cooking time
for foods that normally need a long time to cook. This
cooking process also ]eaves meats juicy on the inside
and crispy on the outside. In combination cooking, the
convection heat and microwave energy alternate
automatically. Your oven has two preprogrammed
settings that make it easy to cook with both convection
heal and microwave energy automatically:

may cause arcing when it comes in contact with the
oven walls or metal accessory racks Arcing is a
discharge of electricity that occurs when microwaves
_me in _ntact with metal,
If arcing occurs, place a heatprc_f dish between
the pan and the metal rack,
If arcing o_urs with other baking cookware, do
not use them for combination c_king.

To heat or reheat successfully in a microwave oven, it is important to follow several guidelines. Measure the amount
of food in order to determine the time needed to reheat. Arrange the food in a circular pattern for best results. Room
temperature food will heat faster than refrigerated food. Canned foods should be taken out of the can and placed
in a microwave-safe container. The food will heat more evenly if covered with a microwave-safe lid or vented plastic wrap. Remove cover carefully to prevent steam burns. Use the following chart as a guide for reheating cooked
food.

Questions and Answers
Operation
Answer
Question
Why is the oven light not on during
cooking?
There may be several reasons why the oven light is not on.
Have you:
• Set a cook time?
° Touched START?
Why does steam come out of the air
exhaust vent?
Steam is normally produced during cooking. The microwave oven
has been designed to vent this steam.
Will the microwave oven be damaged if it
operates empty?
Yes. Never operate the oven empty or without the glass turntable.
Does microwave energy pass through the
viewing screen in the door?
No. The metal screen bounces the energy back to the oven cavity.
The holes (or ports) allow only light to pass through. They do not
let microwave energy pass through.
Why does a tone sound when a pad on the
control panel is touched?
The tone tells you that the setting has been entered.
Can my microwave oven be damaged if
food is cooked for too long?
Like any other cooking appliance, it is possible to overcook food
to the point that the food creates smoke and even possibly fire
and damage to the inside of the oven. It is always best to be near
the oven while you are cooking.
When the oven is plugged into wall outlet
for the first time, it might not work properly.
What is wrong?
The microcomputer controlling your oven may temporarily
become scrambled and fail to function as programmed when you
plug in for the first time or when power resumes after a power
interruption. Unplug the oven from the 120-volt household outlet
and then plug it back in to reset the microcomputer.
Why do I see light reflection around the
outer case?
This light is from the oven light which is located between the
oven cavity and the outer wall of the oven.
What are the various sounds I hear when
the microwave oven is operating?
The clicking sound is caused by a mechanical switch turning the
microwave oven's magnetron ON and OFF.
The heavy hum and clunk is from the change in power the
magnetron draws as it is turned ON and OFF by a mechanical
switch. The change in blower speed is from the change in line
voltage caused by the magnetron being turned ON and OFF.
Food
Question
Answer
What is wrong when baked foods have a
hard, dry, brown spot?
A hard, dry, brown spot indicates overcooking. Shorten the
cooking or reheating time.
Why do eggs sometimes pop?
When baking, frying, or poaching eggs, the yolk may pop due to
steam build-up inside the yolk membrane. To prevent this,
simply pierce the yolk before cooking.
CAUTION: Never microwave eggs in the shell.
35
Questions and Answers (continued)
Food
Answer
Question
Why are scrambled eggs sometimes a
little dry after cooking?
Eggs will dry out when they are overcooked, even if the same
recipe is used each time. The cooking time may need to be varied
for one of these reasons:
• Eggs vary in size.
• Eggs are at room temperature one time and at refrigerator
temperature another time.
• Eggs continue cooking during standing time.
Is it possible to pop popcorn in a
microwave oven?
Yes, if using one of the two methods described below:
(1) microwave-popping devices designed specifically for
microwave cooking
(2) prepackaged commercial microwave popcorn that is made
for specific times and power output needed
Follow exact directions given by each manufacturer for
its popcorn popping product and do not leave the oven
unattended while the corn is being popped. If corn fails
to pop after the suggested time, discontinue cooking.
Overcooking could result in an oven fire.
CAUTION:
• Never use a brown paper bag for popping corn or attempt
to pop leftover kernels.
• Do not pop prepackaged commercial microwave popcorn
directly on the glass turntable. To avoid excessive heating
of the glass turntable, place the popcorn bag on a plate.
• Listen while corn pops. Stop oven when popping slows to
2-3 seconds between pops.
• Do not leave microwave unattended while popping corn.
• Follow directions on bag.
Why do baked apples sometimes burst
during cooking?
The peel has not been removed from the top half of each apple to
allow for expansion of the interior of the apple during cooking. As
in conventional cooking methods, the interior of the apple expands
during the cooking process.
Why do baked potatoes sometimes
burn during cooking?
If the cooking time is too long, fire could result. At the end of the
recommended cooking time, potatoes should be slightly firm.
CAUTION: Do not overcook.
Why is a standing time recommended
after microwave cooking time is over?
Standing time allows foods to continue cooking evenly for a few
minutes after the actual microwave oven cooking cycle. The
amount of standing time depends upon the density of the foods.
Why is additional time required for
cooking food stored in the refrigerator?
As in conventional cooking, the initial temperature of food affects
total cooking time. You need more time to cook food taken out of a
refrigerator than for food at room temperature.
36
