Dear Customer,
Congratulations on acquiring your new microwave oven, which from now on will make your kitchen chores
considerably easier.
You will be pleasantly surprised by the kinds of things you can do with a microwave. Not only can you use it for
rapid defrosting or heating up of food, you can also prepare whole meals.
There are so many advantages to having a microwave oven which we are sure you will find exciting:
● Food can be prepared directly in the serving dishes, leaving less to wash up.
● Shorter cooking times and the use of little water and fat ensure that many vitamins, minerals and
characteristic flavours are preserved.
We advise you to read the operating instructions carefully.
You will then easily understand how to use your oven.
Enjoy using your microwave oven and prepare your own favourite dishes in your microwave oven.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
To avoid the danger of fire.
Th e m i c r ow ave ove n s h o u l d n o t b e l e f t
unattended during operation. Power levels
that are too high, or cooking times that are too
long, may overheat foods resulting in a fire.
This oven is designed to be used on a countertop
only. It is not designed to be built into a kitchen unit.
Do not place the oven in a cabinet.
The electrical outlet must be readily accessible so that
the unit can be unplugged easily in an emergency.
The AC power supply must be 230V, 50Hz, with a
minimum 10A distribution line fuse, or a minimum
10A distribution circuit breaker.
A separate circuit serving only this appliance should
be provided.
Do not place the oven in areas where heat is generated.
For example, close to a conventional oven.
Do not install the oven in an area of high humidity or
where moisture may collect.
Do not store or use the oven outdoors.
If smoke is observed, switch off or unplug the
oven and keep the door closed in order to stifle
any flames.
Use only microwave -safe containers and
utensils. See Page GB-21. Utensils should be
checked to ensure that they are suitable for use
in microwave ovens.
When heating food in plastic or paper
containers, keep an eye on the oven due to the
possibility of ignition.
Clean the waveguide cover, the oven cavity, the
turntable and roller stay 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.
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, use only 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.
To avoid overheating and fire, special care must be
taken when cooking or reheating foods with a high
sugar or fat content, for example, Sausage rolls, Pies
or Christmas pudding.
See the corresponding hints in operation manual and
the cookery book section.
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 not misaligned or warped.
b) The hinges and safety door latches; check to
make sure they are not broken or loose.
c) The door seals and sealing surfaces; ensure that
they have not been damaged.
d) Inside the oven cavity or on the door; make sure
there are no dents.
e) The power supply cord and plug; ensure that
they are not damaged.
If the door or door seals are damaged, the oven
must not be operated until it has been repaired by
a competent person.
Never adjust , repair or modify the oven
yourself. It is hazardous for anyone other than
a competent person to carry out any service or
repair operation which involves the removal
of a cover which gives protection against
exposure to microwave energy.
Do not operate the oven with the door open or alter
the door safety latches in any way.
Do not operate the oven if there is an object between
the door seals and sealing surfaces.
Do not allow grease or dirt to build up on the
door seals and adjacent parts. Clean the oven
at regular intervals and remove any food
deposits. Follow the instructions for "Care and
Cleaning" on page GB-19. Failure to maintain
the oven in a clean condition could lead to
a deterioration of the surface that could
adversely affect the life of the appliance and
possibly result in a hazardous situation.
Individuals with PACEMAKERS should check with their
doctor or the manufacturer of the pacemaker for
precautions regarding microwave ovens.
To avoid the possibility of electric shock
Under no circumstances should you remove the outer
cabinet.
Never spill or insert any objects into the door lock
openings or ventilation openings. In the event of a
spill, turn off and unplug the oven immediately, and
call an authorised SHARP service agent.
Do not immerse the power supply cord or plug in
water or any other liquid.
Do not let the power supply cord hang over the edge
of a table or work surface.

2011-03-18 21:04:15
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Keep the power supply cord away from heated
surfaces, including the rear of the oven.
Do not attempt to replace the oven lamp yourself or
allow anyone who is not an electrician authorised by
SHARP to do so. If the oven lamp fails, please consult
your dealer or an authorised SHARP service agent.
If the power supply cord of this appliance is
damaged, it must be replaced with a special cord.
The exchange must be made by an authorised
SHARP service agent.
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.
Microwave heating of beverages can result in
delayed eruptive boiling, therefore care must
be taken when handling the container.
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 widemouthed container to allow bubbles to escape.
Never heat liquids in narrow necked containers
such as baby bottles, as this may result in the
contents erupting from the container when
heated and cause burns.
To prevent sudden eruption of boiling liquid and
possible scalding:
1. Do not use excessive amount of time.
2. Stir liquid prior to heating/reheating.
3. It is advisable to insert a glass rod or similar utensil
(not metal) into the liquid whilst reheating.
4. 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
WARNING: The contents of feeding bottles and
baby food jars must be stirred or shaken and
the temperature checked before consumption,
in order to avoid 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 and eruption of boiling.
To avoid burns, always test food temperature
and stir before ser ving 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 it
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 to prevent them
burning themselves.
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. This appliance is not intended for use
by persons (including children) with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or
lack of experience and knowledge, unless they
have been given supervision or instruction
concerning use of the appliance by a person
responsible for their safety. Children should
be supervised to ensure that they do not play
with the appliance.
Do not lean or swing on the oven door. Do not play
with the oven or use it as a toy.
Children should be taught all important safety
instructions: use of pot holders, careful removal of
food coverings; paying special attention to packaging
(e.g. self-heating materials) designed to make food
crisp, as they may be extra hot.
Other warnings
Never modify the oven in any way.
Do not move the oven while it is in operation.
This oven is for home food preparation only and may
only be used for cooking food. It is not suitable for
commercial or laboratory use.
To promote trouble-free use of your oven and
avoid damage.

CARE AND CLEANING
CAUTION: DO NOT USE COMMERCIAL OVEN
CLEANERS, STEAM CLEANERS, ABR ASIVE,
HARSH CLEANERS, ANY THAT CONTAIN SODIUM
HYDROXIDE OR SCOURING PADS ON ANY PART
OF YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN.
CLEAN THE OVEN AT REGULAR INTERVALS AND
REMOVE ANY FOOD DEPOSITS - Keep the oven
clean, or the oven could lead to a deterioration
of the surface. This could adversely affect the
life of the appliance and possibly result in a
hazardous situation.
Oven exterior
The outside of your oven can be cleaned easily with
mild soap and water. Make sure the soap is wiped off
with a moist cloth, and dry the exterior with a soft
towel.
Control panel
Open the door before cleaning to de-activate the
control panel. Care should be taken in cleaning the
control panel. Using a cloth dampened with water
only, gently wipe the panel until it becomes clean.
Avoid using excessive amounts of water. Do not use
any sort of chemical or abrasive cleaner.
Oven Interior
1. For cleaning, wipe any splatters or spills with a
soft damp cloth or sponge after each use while
the oven is still warm. For heavier spills, use a mild
soap and wipe several times with a damp cloth
until all residues are removed. Do not remove the
waveguide cover.
2. Make sure that mild soap or water does not
penetrate the small vents in the walls which may
cause damage to the oven.
3. Do not use spray type cleaners on the oven
interior.
Keep the waveguide cover clean at all times.
The waveguide cover is constructed from a fragile
material and should be cleaned with care (follow the
cleaning instructions above).
NOTE: Excessive soaking may cause disintegration of
the waveguide cover.
The waveguide cover is a consumable part and
without regular cleaning, will need to be replaced.
Turntable and Roller stay
Remove the turntable and roller stay from the oven.
Wash the turntable and roller stay in mild soapy
water. Dry with a soft cloth. Both the turntable and
the roller stay are dishwasher safe.

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
wave guide 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 page GB-21).
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.
ENGLISH
WHAT ARE MICROWAVES?
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.
GB-20
R-240_OM_01_EN.indd Sek1:20
2011-03-18 21:04:34
SUITABLE OVENWARE
GLASS AND CERAMIC GLASS
METAL
Heat-resistant glass utensils are very
suitable. The cooking process can be
observed from all sides. They must not,
however, contain any metal (e.g. lead
crystal), nor have a metallic overlay (e.g.
gold edge, cobalt blue finish).
Generally speaking, metal should not be used,
since microwaves do not pass through metal and
therefore cannot reach the food. There are, however,
exceptions: small strips of aluminium foil may be
used to cover certain parts of the food, so that
these do not thaw too quickly or begin to cook (e.g.
chicken wings). Small metal skewers and aluminium
containers (e.g. of ready cooked meals) can be used.
They must, however, be small in relation to the
food, e.g. aluminium containers must be at least 2/3
to 3/4 filled with food. It is recommended that you
transfer the food into a dish suitable for use in the
microwave. When using aluminium containers or
other metal utensils there must be a gap of approx.
2 cms between them and the walls of the cooking
area, otherwise the walls could be damaged by
possible arcing.
CERAMICS
Generally very suitable. Ceramics must be glazed,
since with unglazed ceramics moisture can get into
the ceramic. Moisture causes the material to heat
up and may make it shatter. If you are not certain
whether your utensil is suitable for the microwave,
carry out the utensil suitability test.
PORCELAIN
Very suitable. Ensure that the porcelain does not
have a gold or silver overlay and that it does not
contain any metal.
PLASTIC AND PAPER UTENSILS
Heat resistant plastic utensils which are suitable
for use in the microwave can be used to thaw,
heat and cook food. Follow the manufacturer’s
recommendations.
Heat-resistant paper made for use in a microwave
oven is also suitable. Follow the manufacturer’s
recommendations.
MICROWAVE FOIL
T h i s, o r h e a t - re s i s t a n t fo i l, i s ve r y s u i t a b l e
for covering or wrapping. Please follow the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
NO UTENSIL SHOULD HAVE A METAL
OVERLAY - par ts such as screws, bands or
handles.
UTENSIL SUITABILITY TEST
If you are not sure whether your utensil
is suitable for use in your microwave
oven, carry out the following test: Place
the utensil into the oven. Place a glass
container filled with 150 ml of water on
or next to the utensil. Switch on the oven at 800 W
power for 1 to 2 minutes. If the utensil stays cool or
just warm to the touch, it is suitable. Do not use this
test on a plastic utensil. It could melt.
ROASTING BAGS
Can be used in a microwave oven. Metal clips are not
suitable for fastening them since the roasting bag
foil might melt. Fasten the roasting bag with string
and pierce it several times with a fork. Non heatresistant food wraps are not recommended for use in
a microwave oven.
BROWNING DISH
A special microwave dish made from ceramic glass
with a metal alloy base, which allows food to be
browned.
When using the browning dish a suitable insulator,
e.g. a porcelain plate, must be placed between the
turntable and the browning dish. Be careful to
adhere exactly to the pre-heating time given in the
manufacturer’s instructions. Excessive pre-heating
can damage the turntable and the turntable stand or
can trigger the safety-device which will switch off the
oven.

TIME SETTINGS
DEEP AND SHALLOW CONTAINERS
In general the thawing, heating and cooking
times are significantly shorter than when using a
conventional cooker or oven. For this reason you
should adhere to the recommended times given in
this cookery book. It is better to set the times too
short, rather than too long. Test the food after it has
been cooked. It is better to have to cook something
for a little longer than to overcook it.
Both containers have the same capacity, but the
cooking time is longer for the deeper one. You
should therefore choose as flat a container as
possible with a large surface area. Only use deep
containers for dishes where there is a danger of
overcooking, e.g. for noodles, rice, milk etc..
INITIAL TEMPERATURES
Thawing, heating and cooking times are dependent
upon the initial temperature of the food. Deepfrozen food and food stored in a refrigerator, for
example, requires longer than food which has been
stored at room temperature.
Fo r h e a t i n g a n d co o k i n g, n o r m a l s to r a g e
temperatures are assumed (refrigerator temperature
approx. 5°C, room temperature approx. 20°C). For
thawing the temperature of the deep freeze is
assumed to be - 18°C.
COOKING TIMES
All the times given in this cooker y book are
guidelines, which can be varied according to the
initial temperature, weight and condition of the food
(water or fat content etc.).
SALT, SPICES AND HERBS
Food cooked in your microwave retains its individual
flavour better than it does when conventional
preparation methods are used. For this reason you
should use salt very sparingly and normally add it
only after cooking. Salt absorbs liquid and dries out
the outer layer of the food. Herbs and spices can be
used as normal.
ADDITION OF WATER
Vegetables and other foods with a high water
content can be cooked in their own juice or with
the addition of a little water. This ensures that many
vitamins and minerals are preserved.
ENGLISH
TIPS AND ADVICE
ROUND AND OVAL CONTAINERS
Food cooks more evenly in round or oval containers
than in containers with corners, since the microwave
energy concentrates in the corners and the food in
these areas could become overcooked.
COVERING
Covering the food retains the moisture within it and
shortens the cooking time. Use a lid, microwave foil
or a cover. Foods which are to be crispy, e.g. roasts or
chickens, should not be covered.
As a general rule, whatever would be covered in
a conventional oven should also be covered in a
microwave oven. Whatever would be uncovered
in an ordinary oven can also be left uncovered in a
microwave oven.
TURNING
Medium-sized items, such as hamburgers and steaks,
should be turned over once during cooking, in order
to shorten the cooking process. Large items, such as
roasts and chickens, must be turned, since the upper
side receives more microwave energy and could dry
out if not turned.
STANDING TIME
Keeping to the standing time is one of the most
impor tant rules with microwaves. Almost all
foods, which are thawed, heated or cooked in
the microwave, require a certain amount of time
to stand, during which temperature equalisation
takes place and the moisture in the food is evenly
distributed.
FOOD IN SKINS OR SHELLS
Food such as sausages, chickens, chicken legs, baked
potatoes, tomatoes, apples, egg yolks or such like
should be pricked or pierced with a fork or small
wooden skewer. This will enable the steam which forms
to dissipate without splitting the skin or shell.
LARGE AND SMALL QUANTITIES
Microwave times are directly dependent upon the
amount of food which you would like to thaw, heat
or cook. This means that small portions cook more
quickly than larger ones.
As a rule of thumb:
TWICE THE AMOUNT = ALMOST TWICE THE TIME
HALF THE AMOUNT = HALF THE TIME

TIPS AND ADVICE
BROWNING AGENTS
After more than 15 minutes cooking time food
acquires a brownness, although this is not
comparable to the deep brownness and crispness
obtained through conventional cooking. In order
to obtain an appetising brown colour you can
use browning agents. For the most par t they
simultaneously act as seasoning agents.
In the following table you will find some suggestions
for substances you might use for browning and some
of the uses to which you might put them.

HEATING
BOXES AND CONTAINERS
● Ready-prepared meals in aluminium containers
Boxes and containers suitable for microwaves are
particularly good for thawing and heating food,
since they can withstand temperatures in a deep
freeze (down to approx. –40°C) as well as being heatresistant (up to approx. 220°C). You can therefore use
the same container to thaw, heat and even cook the
food, without having to transfer it.

should be removed from the aluminium container
and heated on a plate or in a dish.
Remove the lids from firmly closed containers.
Food should be covered with microwave foil, a
plate or cover (obtainable from stores), so that
the surface does not dry out. Drinks need not be
covered.
When boiling liquids such as water, coffee, tea or
milk, place a glass stirrer in the container.
If possible, stir large quantities from time to
time, to ensure that the temperature is evenly
distributed.
The times are for food at a room temperature
of 20°C. The heating time for food stored in a
refrigerator should be increased slightly.
After heating allow the food to stand for 1-2
minutes, so that the temperature inside the food
can be evenly distributed (standing time).
The times given are guidelines, which can be
varied according to the initial temperature,
weight, water content, fat content or the result
which you wish to achieve.
COVERING
Cover thin parts with small strips of aluminium
foil before thawing. Thawed or warm parts should
likewise be covered with aluminium strips during
thawing. This stops the thin parts becoming too hot
while thicker parts are still frozen.
CORRECT SETTING
It is better to choose a setting which is too low rather
than one which is too high. By so doing you will
ensure that the food thaws evenly.
If the microwave setting is too high, the surface of
the food will already have begun to cook while the
inside is still frozen.
THAWING
Your microwave is ideal for thawing. Thawing times
are usually considerably shorter than in traditional
methods of thawing.
Here are a few tips. Take the frozen item out of its
packaging and place on a plate for thawing.
GB-23

depend upon the weight, initial temperature and
condition of the type of vegetable in question.
The fresher the vegetables, the shorter the
cooking times.
TURNING/STIRRING
Almost all foods have to be turned or stirred from
time to time. As early as possible, separate parts
which are stuck together and rearrange them.
COOKING MEAT, FISH AND POULTRY
SMALL AMOUNTS
Thaw more quickly and evenly than larger ones. We
recommend that you freeze portions which are as
small as possible. By so doing you will be able to
prepare whole menus quickly and easily.
FOODS REQUIRING CAREFUL
HANDLING
Foods such as gateaux, cream, cheese and bread
should only be partially thawed and then left to
thaw completely at room temperature. By so doing
you will avoid the outer areas becoming too hot
while the inside is still frozen.
● When buying food items, try to ensure that, as far
●
●
●
●
STANDING TIME
This is particularly important after thawing food, as
the thawing process continues during this period. In
the thawing table you will find the standing times
for various foods. Thick, dense foods require a longer
standing time than thinner foods or food of a porous
nature. If the food has not thawed sufficiently, you
may continue thawing it in the microwave oven or
lengthen the standing time accordingly. At the end
of the standing time you should process the food as
soon as possible and not re-freeze it.

TIPS AND ADVICE
far as possible, they are of similar size. This is
particularly important when you want to cook the
vegetables whole (e.g. boiled potatoes).
Wash the vegetables before preparing them,
clean them and only then weigh the required
quantity for the recipe and chop them up.
Season them as you would normally, but as a rule
only add salt after cooking.
Add about 5 tbsps of water for 500g of
vegetables. Vegetables which are high in
fibre require a little more water. You will find
information about this in the table.
Vegetables are usually cooked in a dish with a lid.
Those with a high moisture content, e.g. onions or
boiled potatoes, can be cooked in microwave foil
without adding water.
After half the cooking time has elapsed
vegetables should be stirred or turned over.
After cooking allow the vegetables to stand
for approx. 2 minutes, so that the temperature
disperses evenly (standing time).
The cooking times given are guidelines and
as possible, they are of similar size. This will ensure
that they are cooked properly.
Before preparation wash meat, fish and poultry
thoroughly under cold running water and pat
them dry with kitchen paper. Then continue as
normal.
Beef should be well hung and have little gristle.
Even though the pieces may be of a similar size,
cooking results may vary. This is due, amongst
other things, to the kind of food, variations
in the fat and moisture content as well as the
temperature before cooking.
After the food has been cooking for 15 minutes
it acquires a natural brownness, which may be
enhanced by the use of a browning agent. If, in
addition, you would like the surface to be crisp
you should either use the browning dish or sear
the food on your cooker and finish cooking
it in your microwave. By doing this you will
simultaneously obtain a brown base for making a
sauce.
Turn large pieces of meat, fish or poultry half way
through the cooking time, so that they are cooked
evenly from all sides.
After cooking cover roasts with aluminium foil
and allow them to stand for approx. 10 minutes
(standing time). During this period the roast
carries on cooking and the liquid is evenly
distributed, so that when it is carved a minimum
amount of juice is lost.
THAWING AND COOKING
Deep-frozen dishes can be thawed and cooked at the
same time in one process in your microwave. You
will find some examples in the table. Do take note,
however, of the general advice given on “heating”
and “thawing” food. Please refer to the manufacturer’
s instructions on the packaging when preparing
deep frozen dishes. These usually contain precise
cooking times and offer advice on preparation.
