Important safety instructions: Read carefully & keep
for future reference
To avoid the danger of fire
The microwave oven should not be
left unattended during operation.
Power levels that are too high or
cooking times that are too long may
overheat foods resulting in a fire.
The electrical outlet must be readily
accessible so that the unit can be
unplugged easily in an emergency.
The AC power supply must be 230 V,
50 Hz, with a minimum 16 A distribution
line fuse, or a minimum 16 A distribution
circuit breaker.
Do not store or use the oven outdoors.
If food being heated begins to
smoke, DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR.
Turn off and unplug the oven and
wait until the food has stopped
smoking. Opening the door while
food is smoking may cause a fire.
Only use microwave-safe
containers and utensils. See pages
15-16.
Do not leave the oven
unattended when using disposable
plastic, paper or other combustible
food containers.
Clean the waveguide cover, the
oven cavity, the turntable and
turntable support after use. These
must be dry and free from grease.
Built-up grease may overheat and
begin to smoke or catch fire.
Do not place flammable materials
near the oven or ventilation openings. Do
not block the ventilation openings.
Remove all metallic seals, wire twists,
etc., from food and food packages. Arcing
on metallic surfaces may cause a fire.
Downloaded From Microwave-Manual.com Manuals
Do not use the microwave oven to heat
oil for deep frying. The temperature cannot
be controlled and the oil may catch fire.
To make popcorn, only use special
microwave popcorn makers.
Do not store food or any other items
inside the oven.
Check the settings after you start the
oven to ensure the oven is operating as
desired.
See the corresponding hints in this
operation manual.
To avoid the possibility of injury
Warning: Do not operate the oven if
it is damaged or malfunctioning.
Check the following before use:
a) The door; make sure the door
closes properly and ensure it is

To avoid the possibility of explosion
and sudden boiling
Warning: Liquids and other foods
must not be heated in sealed
containers since they are liable to
explode.
Never use sealed containers. Remove
seals and lids before use. Sealed
containers can explode due to a build up
of pressure even after the oven has been
turned off.
Take care when microwaving liquids.
Use a wide-mouthed container to allow
bubbles to escape.
Microwave heating of beverages
can result in delayed eruptive
boiling, therefore care has to be
taken when handling the container.
To prevent sudden eruption of boiling
liquid and possible scalding:
1. Stir liquid prior to heating/reheating.
2. It is advisable to insert a glass rod
or similar utensil into the liquid whilst
reheating.
3. Let liquid stand for at least 20
seconds in the oven at the end of
cooking time to prevent delayed
eruptive boiling.
Do not cook eggs in their shells
and whole hard boiled eggs should
not be heated in microwave ovens
since they may explode even after
microwave cooking has ended. To
cook or reheat eggs which have not
been scrambled or mixed, pierce
the yolks and the whites, or the
eggs may explode. Shell and slice
hard boiled eggs before reheating
them in the microwave oven.
Pierce the skin of such foods as
potatoes, sausages and fruit before
cooking, or they may explode.

To avoid the possibility of burns
Use pot holders or oven gloves when
removing food from the oven to prevent
burns.
Always open containers, popcorn
makers, oven cooking bags, etc., away
from the face and hands to avoid steam
burns.
To avoid burns, always test food
temperature and stir before serving
and pay special attention to the
temperature of food and drink given
to babies, children or the elderly.
Temperature of the container is not a
true indication of the temperature of the
food or drink; always check the food
temperature.
Always stand back from the oven
door when opening to avoid burns from
escaping steam and heat.
Slice stuffed baked foods after
heating to release steam and avoid
burns.
Keep children away from the door
and accessible parts that may become
hot when the grill is in use. Children
should be kept away to prevent them
burning themselves.
Do not touch the oven door, outer
cabinet, rear cabinet, oven cavity,
ventilation openings, accessories and
dishes during GRILL mode, DUAL
GRILL mode and AUTO COOK
operation as they will become hot. Before
cleaning make sure they are not hot.
To avoid misuse by children
Warning: Only allow children to use
the oven without supervision when
adequate instructions have been
given so that the child is able to use
the oven in a safe way and understands the hazards of improper use.

Microwave cooking
advice
Microwaves are energy waves, similar
to those used for TV and radio signals.
Electrical energy is converted into
microwave energy, which is directed
into the oven cavity via a waveguide.
To prevent food and grease entering
the waveguide it is protected by the
waveguide cover.
Microwaves cannot pass through
metal, because of this the oven cavity
is made of metal and there is a fine
metal mesh on the door. During
cooking the microwaves bounce off
the sides of the oven cavity at random.
Microwaves will pass through
certain materials, such as glass and
plastic, to heat the food. (See ‘Suitable
Cookware’ on pages 15-16).
To cook/defrost food in a
microwave oven, the microwave
energy must be able to pass through
the container to penetrate the food.
Therefore it is important to choose
suitable cookware.
Downloaded From Microwave-Manual.com Manuals
13
Round/oval dishes are preferable to
square/oblong ones, as the food in the
corners tends to overcook. A variety of
cookware can be used as listed on
pages 15-16.
Water, sugar and fat in food
absorb microwaves which cause them
to vibrate. This creates heat by friction,
in the same way your hands get warm
when you rub them together.
The outer areas of the food are
heated by the microwave energy, then
the heat moves to the centre by
conduction, as it does in conventional
cooking. It is important to turn,
rearrange or stir food to ensure even
heating.
Once cooking is complete, the
oven automatically stops producing
microwaves.
Standing time is necessary after
cooking, as it enables the heat to
disperse equally throughout the food.
Microwaves cook food faster than
conventional cooking. It is therefore
essential that certain techniques are
followed to ensure good results. Many
of the following techniques are similar
to those used in conventional cooking.

Temperature
of food
Foods high in fat or sugar (e.g. Christmas pudding, mince pies) require less
heating time. Care should be taken as overheating can lead to fire.
Food density will affect the amount of cooking time needed. Light porous
foods, such as cakes or bread, cook more quickly than heavy, dense foods,
such as roasts and casseroles.
The cooking time must be increased as the amount of food placed in the
oven increases. e.g. Four potatoes will take longer to cook than two.
Small foods and small pieces cook faster than large ones, as microwaves can
penetrate from all sides to the centre. For even cooking make all the pieces
the same size.
Foods which are irregular in shape, such as chicken breasts or drumsticks,
take longer to cook in the thicker parts. Round shapes cook more evenly than
square shapes when microwave cooking.
The initial temperature of food affects the amount of cooking time needed.
Chilled foods will take longer to cook than food at room temperature. Cut into
foods with fillings, for example jam doughnuts, to release heat or steam.
Cooking techniques
Arrange

Stir, turn &
rearrange
Stand
Shield
Place the thickest parts of food towards the outside of the dish.
e.g. Chicken drumsticks.
Use vented microwave cling film or a suitable lid.
Foods with a shell, skin or membrane must be pierced in several places before
cooking or reheating as steam will build up and may cause food to explode.
e.g. Potatoes, Fish, Chicken, Sausages.
Note: Eggs should not be heated using microwave power as they may
explode, even after cooking has ended. e.g. poached, fried, hard boiled.
For even cooking it is essential to stir, turn and rearrange food during cooking.
Always stir and rearrange from the outside towards the centre.
Standing time is necessary after cooking to enable the heat to disperse equally
throughout the food.
Some areas of food being defrosted may become warm. Warm areas can be
shielded with small pieces of foil, which reflect microwaves, e.g. legs and wings
on a chicken.

Using a food thermometer to determine cooking times
Once cooked, every drink and every foodstuff has a certain internal temperature at
which the cooking process can be switched off and the food will be cooked. The
internal temperature can be ascertained with a food thermometer. The most

Comments
Small pieces of aluminium foil can be used to shield food
from overheating. Keep foil at least 2 cm from the oven
walls, as arcing may occur. Foil containers are not
recommended unless specified by the manufacturer,
e.g. Microfoil ®, follow instructions carefully.
Always follow the manufacturers instructions. Do not
exceed heating times given. Be very careful as these
dishes become very hot.
Porcelain, pottery, glazed earthenware and bone china
are usually suitable, except for those with metallic
decoration.
Care should be taken if using fine glassware as it can
break or crack if heated suddenly.
It is not recommended to use metal cookware when using
microwave power as it will arc, which can lead to fire.
Care must be taken as some containers warp, melt or
discolour at high temperatures.
Should not touch the food and must be pierced to let the
steam escape.
Must be pierced to let steam escape. Ensure bags are
suitable for microwave use. Do not use plastic or metal ties,
as they may melt or catch fire due to the metal arcing.

Adapting recipes for the microwave
oven
If you would like to adapt your favourite
recipes for the microwave, you should
take note of the following: Shorten
cooking times by a third to a half. Follow
the example of the recipes in this book.
Foods which have a high moisture
content such as meat, fish, poultry,
vegetables, fruit, stews and soups can
be prepared in your microwave without
any difficulty.
Downloaded From Microwave-Manual.com Manuals
Foods which have little moisture,
such as platters of food, should have the
surface moistened prior to heating or
cooking.
The amount of liquid to be added to
raw foods, which are to be braised,
should be reduced to about two thirds
of the quantity in the original recipe. If
necessary, add more liquid during
cooking.
The amount of fat to be added can
be reduced considerably. A small
amount of butter, margarine or oil is
sufficient to flavour food. For this reason
your microwave is excellent for preparing
low-fat foods as part of a diet.
