escaping.
Hot or humid environment
Risk of short circuit!
Hot cooking compartment
Never subject the appliance to intense heat or humidity.
Risk of burns!
Improper repairs
■
■
Never touch the hot surfaces of heating and cooking
appliances. Never touch the internal surfaces of the cooking
compartment or the heating elements. Open the cooking
compartment door carefully. Hot steam may escape. Small
children must be kept at a safe distance from the appliance
at all times.
Never prepare food containing large quantities of drinks with
a high alcohol content. Alcoholic vapours can catch fire in the
cooking compartment. Use only small quantities of drinks
with a high alcohol content and open the cooking
compartment door carefully.
Risk of fire!
■
■
Never store combustible items in the cooking compartment.
Never open the appliance door if there is smoke inside.
Switch off the appliance. Pull out the mains plug or switch off
the circuit breaker in the fuse box.
Do not place greaseproof paper loosely over accessories
during preheating. A draught is created when the appliance
door is opened. The greaseproof paper may come into
contact with the heating element and catch fire. Always
weight down the greaseproof paper with a dish or a baking
tin. Only cover the surface required with greaseproof paper.
The greaseproof paper must not protrude over the
accessories.
Risk of short circuit!
Risk of electric shock!
■
■
Incorrect repairs are dangerous. Repairs may only be carried
out and damaged power cables replaced by one of our
trained after-sales technicians.
If the appliance is faulty, switch off the circuit breaker in the
fuse box or disconnect the appliance at the mains. Call the
after­sales service.
Self-cleaning
Risk of fire!
■
■
Loose food residues, grease and meat juices can catch fire
during the Self-cleaning cycle. Remove coarse dirt from the
cooking compartment before every Self-cleaning cycle.
Never hang flammable items, such as tea towels, on the door
handle. The appliance will become very hot on the outside
during the Self-cleaning cycle. Keep children at a safe
distance.
Risk of serious damage to health.!
Never let non-stick baking trays and tins go through the Selfcleaning cycle. High temperatures damage the non-stick
coating and poisonous gases are released.
Information on the microwave
Never trap connecting cables of electrical appliances in the hot
appliance door. The cable insulation could melt.
Preparing food
Risk of scalding!
Only use the microwave to prepare food which is fit for
consumption. Using the microwave for other purposes may be
dangerous and may result in damage, e.g. heated slippers and
grain or cereal pillows could catch fire, even several hours later.
Never pour water into the hot cooking compartment. This will
produce hot steam.
Risk of fire!
3
Ovenware
■
Risk of injury!
■
■
Porcelain or ceramic ovenware can have small perforations in
the handles or lids. These perforations conceal a cavity
below. Any moisture that penetrates this cavity could cause
the ovenware to crack.
Only use ovenware that is suitable for use in a microwave.
Always prick the skin of foods that have a skin or peel
such as apples, tomatoes, potatoes and sausages before
cooking. to prevent the peel or skin from bursting.
Drying food
Risk of fire!
Never use the microwave to dry food.
Risk of burns!
Food with a low water content
Hot food can heat up ovenware. Always use an oven cloth or
oven gloves to remove ovenware and accessories from the
cooking compartment.
Risk of fire!
Microwave power and time
Risk of fire!
Do not select a microwave power or time setting that is higher
than necessary. The food could catch fire and cause damage
to the appliance. Follow the information provided in this
instruction manual.
Packaging
Risk of fire!
■
■
Never defrost or heat food with a low water content, e.g. bread,
at too high a power or for too long.
Cooking oil
Risk of fire!
Never use the microwave to heat cooking oil on its own.
Causes of damage
Caution!
■
Never heat food in heat-retaining packages.
Do not leave food heating unattended in containers made of
plastic, paper or other combustible materials.
Risk of burns!
■
Airtight packaging may burst when food is heated. Follow the
information provided on the packaging.
■
Drinks
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 vibrates 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.
■
■
■
■
■
Risk of explosion!
■
Never heat drinks in containers that have been tightly sealed.
■
Never overheat alcoholic drinks.
Baby food
Risk of burns!
■
■
Never heat baby food in closed containers. Always remove the
lid or teat. Stir or shake well after the food has been heated.
This is the only way to ensure even heat distribution. Check the
temperature of the food before it is given to the child.
Foods with shells or skin
Risk of burns!
■
4
Never cook eggs in their shells. Never reheat hard-boiled
eggs as they may crack or explode. The same applies to
shellfish and crustaceans. Always prick the yoke when
baking or poaching eggs.
■
Baking tray, greaseproof paper, aluminium foil or ovenware
on the cooking compartment floor: Do not place baking trays
or ovenware on the cooking compartment floor. Do not line
the cooking compartment floor with aluminium foil. This will
cause heat accumulation. The baking and roasting times will
no longer be correct and the enamel will be damaged.
Foil containers: Do not use foil containers in the appliance.
They damage the appliance by producing sparks.
Water in the hot cooking compartment: Never pour water into
the hot cooking compartment. This will cause steam. The
temperature change can cause damage to the enamel.
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.
Fruit juice: When cooking very moist fruit flans, do not fill the
universal pan too generously. Fruit juice which runs out of the
universal pan leaves behind stains which cannot be removed.
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.
Transporting the appliance: Do not carry or hold the
appliance by the door handle. The door handle cannot
support the weight of the appliance and could break.
Operating the microwave without food: The microwave must
only be switched on when there is food in the cooking
compartment. The appliance may be overloaded if it is
switched on without any food inside. An exception to this rule
is for short-term testing of ovenware (see notes on
ovenware).
Microwave popcorn: Never set the microwave power too
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 microwave
Microwaves are converted to heat in foodstuffs. The microwave
can be used solo, i.e. on its own, or in combination with a
different type of heating. You will find information about
ovenware and how to set the microwave.
Note:
In the Tested for you in our cooking studio section, you will find
examples for defrosting, heating and cooking with the
microwave oven.
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.
10
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.

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.

Energy and environment tips
Here you can find tips on how to save energy when baking and
roasting and how to dispose of your appliance properly.
Saving energy
Only preheat the oven if this is specified in the recipe or in the
operating instruction tables.
Use dark, black lacquered or enamelled baking tins. They
absorb the heat particularly well.
Open the appliance door as little as possible during cooking,
baking or roasting.
For longer cooking times, you can switch the oven off
10 minutes before the end of the cooking time and use the
residual heat to finish cooking.
Environmentally-friendly disposal
Dispose of packaging in an environmentally-friendly manner.
This appliance complies with European Directive
2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic
Equipment (WEEE). The directive gives a framework for
the collection and recycling of old appliances, which is
valid across the EU.
It is best to bake several cakes one after the other. The cooking
compartment is still warm. This may reduce the baking time for
the second cake.

Tested for you in our cooking studio
Here you will find a selection of recipes and the ideal settings
for them. We will show you which type of heating and which
temperature or microwave power setting is best for your meal.
You can find information about suitable accessories and the
height at which they should be inserted. There are also tips
about ovenware and preparation methods.
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.

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.
Time ranges are often specified in the tables. Set the shortest
time first and then extend the time if necessary.
Do not line the accessories with greaseproof paper until after
they have been preheated.
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.
The times specified in the tables are only guidelines. They will
depend on the quality and composition of the food.
Insert the wire rack at level 1. Place the ovenware in the centre.
The food will then absorb the microwaves from all sides.
Use the accessories supplied. 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 ovenware out of the cooking compartment.
Defrost
Notes
■ Place the frozen food in an open container on the wire rack.
■
Delicate parts such as the legs and wings of chicken or fatty
outer layers of roasts can be covered with small pieces of
aluminium foil. The foil must not touch the cooking
compartment walls. You can remove the foil half way through
the defrosting time.
■
■
Turn or stir the food once or twice during the defrosting time.
Large pieces of food should be turned several times. Turn to
remove any liquid that results 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.

Defrosting, heating up or cooking frozen food
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.
■
■
■
■
■
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.

ã=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 vibrates 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.
Cakes and pastries
About the tables
if necessary, use a higher setting the next time, since a lower
temperature results in more even browning.

■ The times given apply to food placed in a cold oven.
■
The temperature and baking time depend on the consistency
and amount of the mixture. This is why temperature ranges
are given in the tables. Begin with the lower temperature and,

Baking tips
You want to bake according to your own
recipe.
Use similar items in the baking tables as a guide.
Use baking tins made of silicone, glass,
plastic or ceramic materials.
The baking tin must be heat-resistant up to 250 °C. Cakes in these baking tins will be
less brown. When using the microwave, the cooking time will be shorter than the time
shown in the table.
How to establish whether sponge cake is
baked through.
Approximately 10 minutes before the end of the baking time specified in the recipe,
poke the cake with a cocktail stick at its highest point. If the cocktail stick comes out
clean, the cake is ready.
The cake collapses.
Use less liquid next time or set the oven temperature 10 degrees lower and extend
the baking time. Observe the specified mixing times in the recipe.
The cake has risen in the middle but is
lower around the edge.
Only grease the base of the springform cake tin. After baking, loosen the cake
carefully with a knife.
The cake is too dark.
Select a lower temperature and bake the cake for a little longer.
The cake is too dry.
When it is done, make small holes in the cake using a toothpick. Then drizzle fruit
juice or an alcoholic beverage over it. Next time, select a temperature 10 degrees

The cake cannot be turned out of the dish
when it is turned upside down.
After baking, allow the cake to cool for a further 5 to 10 minutes, then it will be easier
to turn out of the tin. If it still sticks, carefully loosen the cake around the edges using
a knife. Turn the cake tin upside down again and cover it several times with a cold,
wet cloth. Next time, grease the tin well and sprinkle some bread crumbs into it.

Sparks are generated between the tin and

Check that the tin is clean on the outside. Change the position of the tin in the

Roasting and grilling
About the tables
The temperature and roasting time depend on the type and
amount of food being cooked. This is why temperature ranges
are given in the tables. Begin with the lower temperature and, if
necessary, use a higher setting the next time,
For more information, see the section entitled Tips for grilling
and roasting which follows the tables.
Ovenware
You may use any heat­resistant ovenware which is suitable for
use in a microwave. Metal roasting dishes are not suitable for
roasting with microwaves.
The ovenware can become very hot. Use oven gloves to take
the ovenware out of the oven.
Place hot glass ovenware on a dry kitchen towel after they have
been removed from the oven. The glass could crack if placed
on a cold or wet surface.
Tips for roasting
Use a deep roasting dish for roasting meat and poultry.
Check that your ovenware fits in the cooking compartment. It
should not be too big.
Meat:
Cover approx. two thirds of the ovenware base with liquid. Add
a little more liquid for pot roasts. Turn pieces of meat halfway
32
through the cooking time. When the roast is ready, turn off the
oven and allow it to rest for an additional 10 minutes. This
allows better distribution of the meat juices.
Poultry:
Turn the pieces of meat after Z of the cooking time has
elapsed.
Tips for grilling
Always keep the oven door closed when grilling and do not
preheat.
As far as possible, the pieces of food you are grilling should be
of equal thickness. Steaks should be at least 2 to 3 cm thick.
This will allow them to brown evenly and remain succulent and
juicy. Do not add salt to steaks until they have been grilled.
Use tongs to turn the pieces of food you are grilling. If you
pierce the meat with a fork, the juices will run out and it will
become dry.
Dark meat, e.g. beef, browns more quickly than lightercoloured meat such as veal or pork. When grilling lightcoloured meat or fish, these often only brown slightly on the
surface, although they are cooked and juicy on the inside.
The grill element switches off and on again automatically. This
is normal. The grill setting determines how frequently this will
happen.
Tips for braising
Use ovenware with a lid for braising fish.
Add two to three tablespoons of liquid and a little lemon juice
or vinegar into the ovenware.
Beef

Tips for roasting and grilling
The table does not contain information for the For small roasts, select a higher temperature and a shorter cooking time. For
weight of the joint.
larger roasts, select a lower temperature and a longer cooking time.
How to tell when the roast is ready.
Use a meat thermometer (available from specialist shops) or carry out a “spoon
test”. Press down on the roast with a spoon. If it feels firm, it is ready. If the spoon
can be pressed in, it needs to be cooked for a little longer.
The roast looks good but the juices are burnt. Next time, use a smaller roasting dish or add more liquid.
The roast looks good but the juices are too
clear and watery.
Next time, use a larger roasting dish and add less liquid.
The roast is not well-done enough.
Carve the roast. Prepare the gravy in the roasting dish and place the slices of roast
meat in the gravy. Finish cooking the meat using the microwave only.
Bakes, gratins, toast with toppings
Notes
■ The values in the table apply to food placed in a cold oven.
■
■
■
■
■
Use large flat ovenware for bakes and gratins. Food takes
longer to cook in narrow, deep containers and browns more
on top.
■
Place the bake in microwaveable ovenware on the wire rack.
■
Leave bakes and gratins to cook in the oven for a further
5 minutes after switching off.
■
■
Use a 4 to 5 cm deep ovenproof dish for bakes, potato
gratins and lasagne.
■
■
Place soufflés in individual moulds or in a deep ovenproof
dish. Preheat the cooking compartment.
Toast with topping: lay 4 slices next to each other in the
centre of the universal pan. Distribute 12 slices evenly over
the universal pan.

Slow cooking
Slow cooking, also known as low-temperature cooking, is the
ideal cooking method for all tender pieces of meat which are to
be cooked medium rare or "à point". Meat remains very
succulent and tender. The benefit of this cooking method is that
it allows lots of scope for menu planning because slow-cooked
meat is easy to keep warm.
Setting the Slow cook option
Notes
■ Only use fresh, good-quality meat Carefully remove sinews
and fat from around the edge. Fat develops a strong, distinct
taste during slow cooking.
■
■
Use shallow ovenware, e.g. a serving dish made out of
porcelain or a glass roasting dish with a lid. Always place the
ovenware with lid on the wire rack at level 1.
■
1. Select . Slow cook and a temperature between 70 and
100 °C. Preheat the cooking compartment, thus warming the
ovenware at the same time.
2. Rapidly heat a little fat in a pan. Sear the meat on all sides,
even on the ends, and place immediately on the preheated
ovenware.
3. Place the ovenware in the cooking compartment and restart
the appliance.
■
■
■
■
All tender joints of poultry, beef, veal, pork and lamb are
suitable for slow cooking. Searing and cooking times depend
on the size of the piece of meat.
Sear the meat at a very high heat and for a sufficiently long
time on all sides, even on the ends.
In order to check whether the meat is cooked, use a meat
thermometer. A core temperature of 60 °C should be
maintained for at least 30 minutes.
You can also slow cook your meat in ovenware without a lid.
The cooking times will be increased.
Even large joints of meat do not need to be turned.
You can cut the meat immediately after slow cooking. No
standing time is required.
Due to the special cooking method, the meat always looks
pink on the inside. This does not mean, however, that it is raw
or not well done enough.
Slow cooking
Note: Use ovenware with a properly fitting, matching lid, e.g. a
glass roasting dish. Place the roasting dish on the wire rack.

Tips for slow cooking
Slow-cooked meat is not as hot as conventionally
roasted meat.
So that the roasted meat does not cool too fast, warm the plates and
serve the gravy very hot.
If you wish to keep slow-cooked meat warm.
After slow cooking, turn the temperature down to 70 °C. Small pieces of
meat can be kept warm for up to 45 minutes, larger pieces for up to
2 hours.

Acrylamide in foodstuffs
Which foods are affected?
Acrylamide is mainly produced in grain and potato products
that are heated to high temperatures, such as potato crisps,
chips, toast, bread rolls, bread, fine baked goods (biscuits,
gingerbread, cookies).
Tips for keeping acrylamide to a minimum when preparing food
General
Keep cooking times to a minimum. Cook meals until they are golden brown, but not
too dark. Large, thick pieces of food contain less acrylamide.
Baking biscuits
Oven chips
Max. 200 °C in Top/bottom heating or max. 180 °C in 3D hot air or hot air mode.
Max. 190° C in Top/bottom heating or max. 170 °C in 3D hot air or hot air mode. Egg
white and egg yolk reduce the formation of acrylamide. Distribute thinly and evenly
over the baking tray. Cook at least 400 g at once on a baking tray so that the chips do
not dry out.
