INTRODUCTION
TO MICROWAVE
COOKING
To get the best results from your microwave oven, read and follow the guidelines below.
Microwave cooking distributes heat differently from stove or oven cooking. In microwave cooking, food on the outside
of the dish absorbs more energy (and cooks more quickly) than food at the center. Arrange the food to allow for even
exposure to the microwave energy. Because foods are different, you need to arrange and cook them differently.
• STORAGE TEMPERATURE: Foods taken from the freezer or refrigerator take longer to cook than the same foods
at room temperature. The time for recipes in this book is based on the normal storage temperature of the food.
• SIZE: Small pieces of food cook faster than large ones; pieces similar in size and shape cook more evenly. For
even cooking, reduce the power when cooking large pieces of food.
• QUANTITY: Small amounts of food usually take less time than large amounts.
" SHAPE: Thin areas and corners cook faster. Round shapes and rings cook more evenly because microwaves
penetrate foods to about 1 inch from the top, bottom, and sides.
• TEXTURE: Dense foods, such as potatoes, take longer to cook or heat than light, porous foods, such as bread,
rolls, or a piece of cake. Cook foods with a delicate texture at lower power levels to avoid toughening.
• NATURAL MOISTURE:
molecules.
Very moist foods cook more evenly because microwave energy is attracted to water
• TURN OVER foods like pork chops, baking potatoes, masts, or whole cauliflower halfway through the cooking
time to expose all sides to equal amounts of microwave energy.
• STIR foods such as casseroles and vegetables from the outside to the center to distribute the heat evenly and
speed cooking. Constant stirring is not necessary.
• ARRANGE unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or salmon steaks, with the thicker, meatier parts
toward the outside of the dish.
• SHIELD, with SMALL pieces of aluminum foill, parts of food that may cook quickly, such as wing tips and leg ends
of poultry.
• PLACE delicate areas of foods, such as asparagus tips, toward the center of the dish.
• COVER AND LET STAND those foods uneven in moisture so heat can spread evenly.
• LET IT STAND: After you remove the food from the microwave, cover food with foil or casserole lid and let it
stand to finish cooking in the center and avoid overcooking the outer edges. The length of standing time depends
on the density and surface area of the food.
Check the Questions and Answers section on pages 31-32 for more tips on cooking successfully with your microwave
oven.

COOKING
"HI" is the highest cooking power possible with your microwave oven. It is the best setting for cooking foods that have
high water content, such as coffee, or soups or foods that need fast cooking to maintain their natural flavor and texture,
i;ke fish, vegetables, and most casseroles.
But "HI" power cooking does not always give you the best results with foods that need slow cooking, such as roasts,
baked goods, or custards. Your oven has 9 power settings in addition to "HI". The cookbook tells you which power
setting to use for the food you are cooking. In addition, the Cooking Guide for Multi-Power Settings gives you some
examples of foods that you would cook at each power level. Follow the directions below to cook at any power level.

COOKING
When you do temperature controlled cooking, you do not set the time, but set the TEMP to cook the food to the desired
temperature. The temperature you set is the TEMPERATURE OFTHE FOOD, not the temperature of the oven as in
conventional cooking. You use the temperaature probe to measure the internal temperature of the food.
However, you do not have to cook the food at HI-POWER, but may set the POWER LEVEL appropriate to the kind of
food, according to the recipes in your cookbook.
The "Reheating Chart" on page 21 will show you which power settings and temperature settings are recommended
foods you want to reheat. The cookbook gives you additional power and temperature settings.
for
You may set temperatures from 100 to 200T, one degree at a time. The oven will show rise in temperatures by degrees,
beginning at 100_. If the food temperature measures less than 100"F, "COOL" will dispaly until the food reaches 100T.

GUIDELINES
The benefit of this AUTO DEFROST feature is automatic setting and control of defrosting. But, just as in conventional
defrosting, you must check the food during the defrosting time. Here are some important tips to remember about
defrosting.
For best
results
when
defrosting,
remember
:
• Do not defrost less then 1/4 lb. of ground beef.
• Freeze ground beef in a doughnut shape.
• Press down the center of ground beef patties before freezing.
• Meats, fish or poultry up to 6 Ibs. defrost best.
• To reduce moisture loss, defrost meats just before cooking.
• To defrost convenience foods, follow package directions.
To prepare
the item for defrosting,
remember
:
Remove the packaging.
NOTE : If the package is microwaveable, pierce the package several items.
• Note the weight of the item on the package.
• When you calculate the weight of lhe item, round it to the nearest lower decimal.
(Example : 4 oz.=.2 lb.; 8 oz=.5 lb.; 12 oz=.7 lb.; 16 oz=l lb.)
• Remove metal twist ties from the packaging.
For best results, remove meat, poultry, and fish from the original wrapper. The wrapper can hold steam and juice
close to the food and cause the outer surface to cook.
• If removing the wrapper is difficult, defrost the wrapped food for about 1/4 of the defrosting time (displayed at the
beginning of the defrost cycle). Then remove the food from the oven and remove the wrapping.
Return the food to the oven and touch START.
24
AUTO DEFROST
Prepare the food for defrosting.
• Place the food in a flat, shallow baking dish or use a microwave masting rack in the dish to catch drippings.
• Pierce meats with a casing, such as hot dogs and sausage, to allow steam to escape.
• Cover fatty or thin areas of meat with a small amount of foil before defrosting to prevent them from cooking.
During the defrosting cycle, remember :
• Check the food. If iterns often cook at the edges when defrosting, reduce the weight you set.
• Be sure to turn, stir or rotate the food as directed.
After defrosting,
remember :
• Be sure all areas of the food item are totally defrosted.
• Pierce dense roasts with a skewer to check whether defrosting is complete.
• Rince poultry and seafood in cold water.
• Remove the giblets from poultry and rinse ice crystals out of the cavity.
• Food should still be some what icy in the center when you remove it from the oven,
NOTE : Do not confuse Power Level 3, used to thaw or reheat convenient foods or small bread items,
with AUTO DEFROST. Power Level 3 is a low-energy setting used to cook foods that need slow or
gentle cooking.

METAL UTENSILS:
high intensity heat):
utility dishes, bread dishes, pie plates,
cake plates, liquid measuring cups,
casseroles and bowls without metallic trim.
Metal shields the food from microwave energy and produces
uneven cooking. Also avoid metal skewers, thermometers or foil
trays.Metal utensils can cause arcing, which can damage your

PLASTIC:
Plastic wrap (as a cover)-- lay the plastic
wrap loosely over the dish and press it to
the sides.
Vent plastic wrap by turning back one edge
slightly to allow excess steam to escape.
The dish should be deep enough so that
the plastic wrap will not touch the food. As
the food heats it may melt the plastic wrap
wherever the wrap touches the food.
Use plastic dishes, cups, semi-rigid freezer
containers and plastic bags ONLY FOR
SHORT TIME COOKING. USE THESE
WITH CARE BECAUSE THE PLASTIC
MAY SOFTEN FROM THE HEAT OF THE
FOOD.
ALUMINUM
Avoid large sheets of aluminum foil because they hinder cooking
and may cause harmful arcing. Use small pieces of foil to shield
poultry legs and wings. Keep ALL aluminum foil at least 1 inch from
the side walls and door of the oven.
WOOD:
Wooden bowls and boards will dry out and may split or crack when
you use them in the microwave oven. Baskets react in the same
way.

CAUTION
Never microwave eggs in the shell.
Q. Why are scrambled eggs sometimes a little dry after cooking?
A. Eggs dry out if they are overcooked. Though you use the same recipe each time, you may needs to vary the cookng
time for one of these reasons:
• Eggs vary in size.
• Eggs are at room temperature one time and at refrigerator temperature another time.
• The shape of utensils vary, making cooking time vary also.
• Eggs continue cooking during standing time.
Q. Is it possible to pop corn in a microwave oven?
A. Yes, if using one of the two methods described below.
