■ 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 may
suddenly boil over and spatter. When
heating, always place a spoon in the
container. This will prevent delayed
boiling.
Risk of injury!

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 irreparably damage the glass on the
inside of the door.
Water in the cooking compartment when the cooking
compartment is hot: Never pour water into the cooking
compartment when the cooking compartment is hot. Steam
will be created. The temperature change can cause damage
to the ceramic floor panel.
Foil containers: Do not use foil containers in the appliance.
They damage the appliance by producing sparks.
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.
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: Operating the
appliance without food in the cooking compartment may lead
to overloading. Never switch on the appliance unless there is
food in the cooking compartment. An exception to this rule is
a short crockery test (see the section "Microwave, suitable
crockery").

Care and cleaning
With careful care and cleaning your microwave oven will retain
its looks and remain good order. We will explain here how you
should care for and clean your appliance correctly.
: Risk of short circuit!
Never use high-pressure cleaners or steam cleaners to clean
the oven.
Cleaning agents
To ensure that the different surfaces are not damaged by using
the wrong cleaning agent, observe the information in the table.
Do not use:
■
■
: Risk of burns!
any caustic or abrasive cleaning agents,
metal or glass scrapers to clean the glass in the appliance
door,
Never clean the appliance immediately after switching off. Let
the appliance cool down.
■
metal or glass scrapers to clean the door seal,
■
hard scouring pads and sponges,
Notes
■ Slight differences in colour on the front of the appliance are
caused by the use of different materials, such as glass,
plastic and metal.
■
cleaning agents with high concentrations of alcohol.
■
■
■
Shadows on the door panel which look like streaks, are
caused by reflections made by the oven light.
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.
Unpleasant odours, e.g. after fish has been prepared, can be
removed very easily. Add a few drops of lemon juice to a cup
of water. Place a spoon into the container as well, to prevent
delayed boiling. Heat the water for 1 to 2 minutes at
maximum microwave power.
Rinse out new sponge cloths thoroughly before use.
For easier cleaning, you can switch on the oven light. Open the
appliance door to do so.

cleaner, but only when cooking compartment is cold. It is best to use a stainless-steel sponge. Do not use oven
spray or other aggressive oven cleaners
or abrasive materials. Scouring pads,
rough sponges and pan cleaners are
also unsuitable. These agents scratch
the surface. Allow the interior surfaces
to dry thoroughly.

Cleaning the glass cover
The glass oven-light cover is located on the left side wall inside
the oven. Undo the screw from the cover. Then you can clean
the glass with soapy water.
Self-cleaning surface in the cooking compartment
The back panel of the oven is coated with self-cleaning enamel.
It cleans itself while the oven is in operation. Sometimes, larger
splashes of food may not disappear until the oven has been
operated several times.
Notes
Never treat the self-cleaning surface with oven cleaner. If
oven cleaner accidentally gets onto the rear wall, remove it
immediately with a sponge and plenty of water.
■
■
■
■
Never use abrasive cleaning agents. You will scratch or
destroy the highly porous coating.
Never clean the self-cleaning surface with a scouring pad.
Light discolouration of the enamel does not affect selfcleaning.
Cleaning the cooking compartment floor, ceiling and side
walls
Use a dish cloth and hot soapy water or a vinegar solution.
It is best to use oven cleaner if there are very heavy deposits of
dirt. Only use oven cleaner in a cold oven.

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.
■
■
Do not line the accessories with greaseproof paper until after
they have been preheated.
The times specified in the tables are only guidelines. They will
depend on the quality and composition of the food.
16
■
■
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.
: Risk of scalding!
When pulling out the enamel baking tray, hot liquid may
overflow. Pull out the enamel baking tray carefully from the
cooking compartment.
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.
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.
■
■
Stir or turn the food several times during the heating time.
Check the temperature.
■
Defrosting
Notes
Place the frozen food in an open container on the oven floor.
■
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.

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 .
■
■
Stir carefully during defrosting.
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.
■
■
■
■
Turn during cooking.
Only for cakes without icing, cream or
crème pâtissière, separate the pieces
of cake.
Only for cakes without icing, cream or
gelatine
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.

Caution!
: Risk of scalding!
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
irreparably damage the glass on the inside of the door.
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 moves 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.
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 .
■

■
Always cover the food. If you do not have a suitable cover for
your container, use a plate or special microwave foil.
Stir or turn the food several times during the heating time.
Check the temperature.
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.

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
if necessary, use a higher setting the next time, since a lower
temperature results in more even browning.

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
higher and reduce the baking time.
The bread or cake (e.g. cheesecake) looks Use slightly less fluid next time and bake for slightly longer at a lower temperature.
When baking cakes with a moist topping, bake the base first, cover with almonds or
good, but is soggy on the inside (sticky,
bread crumbs and then add the topping. Please follow the recipe and follow the bakstreaked with water).
ing times.
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.
You have measured the temperature of the The oven temperature is measured by the manufacturer after a specified period of
time using a test rack in the centre of the cooking compartment. Ovenware and
oven using your own meat thermometer
accessories affect the temperature measurement, so there will always be some disand found there is a discrepancy.
crepancy when you measure the temperature yourself.
20
Sparks are generated between the tin and
the wire rack.
Check that the tin is clean on the outside. Change the position of the tin in the cooking compartment. If this does not help, continue baking but without the microwave.
The baking time will then be longer.
Roasting and grilling
Poultry:
Turn the pieces of meat after Z of the cooking time has
elapsed.
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.
■
Tips for grilling
Notes
Always keep the oven door closed when grilling and do not
preheat.
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
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.
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.

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.

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.
