GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. This oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a
grounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric
current.
WARNING – Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock.
Electrical Requirements
The electrical requirements are a 120 volt 60 Hz, AC only, 15
amp. or more protected electrical supply. It is recommended
that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided.
The oven is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug. It must
be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and
grounded. Should you only have a 2-prong outlet, have a qualified electrician install a correct wall receptacle.
Extension Cord
If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire extension cord that has a 3-blade grounding plug and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept the plug on the oven. The marked rating of the extension
cord should be AC 115-120 volt, 15 amp. or more.
Be careful not to drape the cord over the countertop or table where it can be pulled on by children or
tripped over accidentally.
Notes:1. If you have any questions about the grounding or electrical instructions, consult a qualified
electrician or service person.
2. Neither Sharp nor the dealer can accept any liability for damage to the oven or personal injury
resulting from failure to observe the correct electrical connection procedures.
3. Steam is ventilated from the top rear of the oven. Make sure the escaping steam from the
oven does not dampen electric outlets and other electrical appliances. Do not place the electric outlet under the oven. Always wipe the dust off the plug. The electrical outlet must be
readily accessible so that the unit can be unplugged easily in an emergency.
4. Do not allow the power supply cord to run over any hot or sharp surfaces, such as the hot air
vent area at the top rear of the oven.

Your oven can be used in a variety of ways. It not only steam cooks food, but by using superheated steam
it can roast, bake and grill food.
STEAM COOKING
Steam cooking is suitable for foods that need gentle cooking, while retaining their shape, color and typical
aroma, ie : foods such as fish and vegetables. Steam cooking is easy with this oven. Steam is also used for
proofing and defrosting.
SUPERHEATED STEAM COOKING
Steam is heated to above 550°F to create superheated steam. SUPER GRILL, SUPER ROAST and SUPER BAKE cooking modes use this technology to give traditional brown and crispy results.
When using these modes, you will not be able to see the superheated steam. Ordinary steam generates
mist so it will be visible inside the oven. However, superheated steam is not visible due to the high temperatures; this is normal and does not mean the oven is faulty.
When using any of the superheated steam settings, the time in traditional recipes will not apply to the oven.
Please follow the instructions given in the separate cookbook.
THERMAL COOKING
The oven can be used as a conventional oven by using the THERMAL option. Use package directions for
oven use and standard cookbooks and favorite recipes. No adjustments will be necessary.

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT STEAM USE
There are certain techniques for cooking with steam. It is essential that these techniques are followed
for good results. Many of them are similar to those used in conventional cooking so may require little
change. Note information in all of the charts in the cookbook for all cooking modes that use STEAM,
SUPER GRILL, SUPER ROAST, SUPER BAKE, DEFROST, REHEAT and PROOF.
•
•
•
•
Always attend the oven when in use.
Use utensils/cookware suitable for the cooking mode as described on page 8.
Ventilate the room to allow the steam to dissipate.
Refer to the charts in the Superheated Steam Oven Cookbook for recommended cooking times
and modes.
• After cooking, clean the base tray and dry any liquid residue in the oven with a soft cloth.
Follow directions to drain water from the system.
For STEAM and REHEAT modes
Cooking Techniques
Rack/Container
Place food on the rack to allow steam to reach all sides so cooking is even.
Foods crowded together will take longer to cook, so position with enough space
between items to allow the steam to circulate. Use shallow, less dense containers, if desired. Dense containers increase cooking time. To reduce the most salt
and fat, cook using only the rack.
Covering
Covering is not necessary in most cases. If a cover is required, aluminum foil is
recommended to keep food from becoming wet.
Door
For accurate cooking times, keep the door closed.
Stir
Sometimes soups or casseroles reheated without covering look watery after cooking. Appearance will be better by stirring well.
Stand
Standing time is recommended after cooking to allow heat to disperse equally
throughout the food. Do not allow to stand for a long time; food may be overcooked or wet from the residual steam.
Cooking Hints
Blanching
STEAM mode can be used to blanch vegetables to prepare them for freezing.
Place the prepared vegetables in the perforated tray and cook with STEAM mode
for 4 - 5 minutes. After that, put in cold water to cool quickly. Drain and then
freeze.
Removing Salt
To reduce salt in foods, such as smoked sausage or bacon, steam before completing the cooking. Place food on rack. STEAM for 4 to 5 minutes and then
complete cooking with desired method.

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
For STEAM, SUPER GRILL, SUPER ROAST, SUPER BAKE and REHEAT modes
Food Characteristics
Density
Food density will affect the amount of cooking time. Cut the food into thinner
parts, if possible, and arrange in single layer.
Quantity
The cooking time must be increased as the amount increases.
Size
Small foods and small pieces cook faster than large ones, as heat can penetrate
from all sides to the center. For even cooking make all the pieces the same size.
Shape
Foods which are irregular in shape, such as chicken breasts or drumsticks, may
take longer to cook in the thicker parts. Check that these parts are cooked thoroughly before serving.
Temperature of Food The initial temperature of food affects the cooking time. Chilled foods will take
longer to cook than foods at room temperature. The temperature of the container
is not the actual temperature of the food or drink.
Seasoning and
Flavoring
Seasoning or flavoring are best added after cooking. If added as marinades or
rubs, the taste may become less pronounced when cooking with steam. Add
seasoning or flavoring again after cooking if necessary.
• Check that food is thoroughly cooked/reheated before serving.
• Cooking time will be affected by the shape, depth, quantity and temperature of food together with the
size, shape and material of the container.
• Never heat oil or fat for deep frying as this may lead to overheating and fire.
CAUTION:
Always use dry pot holders or oven mitts to remove food or utensils from the oven. Be careful
when opening the oven door to allow steam to dissipate.
For DEFROST mode
Arrange
Remove all packing and wrapping before defrosting. Arrange food in a single
even layer either directly on the rack or on a flat dish on the rack.
Separate
Separate any foods that are frozen together as quickly as possible to ensure
even defrosting.
Stand
Standing time is necessary to ensure food is thoroughly defrosted. Food must
stand, covered, for a length of time to ensure the center has completely defrosted.

ABOUT CHILDREN
Children should be taught all safety precautions.
Children below the age of 7 should use the oven with a
supervising person very near to them. Between the ages
of 7 and 12, the supervising person should be in the
same room.
Don’t assume that because a child has mastered one
cooking skill he/she can cook everything.
Children need to learn that the oven is not a toy. Young
children should be supervised to ensure that they do
not play with the oven.
The child must be able to reach the oven comfortably;
if not, he/she should stand on a sturdy stool.
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing

HOW TO USE THE RESERVOIR
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS: READ CAREFULLY BEFORE
USING THE OVEN
HOW TO USE THE RESERVOIR
Figure A
Wash the reservoir before using the first time. Fill the reservoir
to the MAX mark except when using THERMAL, which does
not use steam. The maximum amount of water that the reservoir
1
holds is 3 /2 cups.
Use only fresh cold tap water. There is no need to use distilled
water (see page 34 for additional information). Do not use
demineralized water or any other liquid. Always use fresh cold
water at the beginning of each cooking session. Place the lid on to the reservoir firmly.
Open the door and position the reservoir as shown in Figure A.
The reservoir must be pushed in firmly as far back as it will go.
The water level indicator will turn on and pumping will start
automatically.
If "Check reservoir position" is displayed, remove the reservoir
and insert it again firmly.
Some noise will be heard while the oven is pumping the water from the reservoir to the steam generator
just before cooking starts. This is normal.
Whenever you have finished using the oven, always empty the reservoir and wash the reservoir and lid.
Notes:
1. When the START pad is pressed, the oven will detect the amount of water in the reservoir. If the
amount of water is not sufficient, the oven will stop and "Fill reservoir" will be displayed. Open the
door, fill the reservoir to the MAX mark and place in the oven. If you press the START pad without
filling the reservoir, there will not be enough water for optimum results and EMPTY may flash during
cooking. The reservoir must contain water or the final cooking results will change.
2. When removing the reservoir, lift the handle up slightly and then pull out toward you.
3. Do not drop or damage the reservoir. Heat may cause the reservoir to change shape. Do not use a
damaged reservoir. Call 1-800-BE-SHARP to purchase a replacement.
4. There may be a few water drops when removing the reservoir. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
5. Do not fill water over the MAX mark.
6. Do not block the air holes on the lid of the reservoir. It will cause trouble during pumping.
7. Short cooking times or cooking programs using a small amount of steam will not use much water from
the reservoir.
8. Do not leave water in reservoir for over a day. Always empty the reservoir when you have finished
cooking.
9. Always have the reservoir in place when cooking with steam.
RESERVOIR FILTER
The reservoir filter is permanently attached within the reservoir.
It prevents dust and/or residue from entering the steam
generator. If the filter is clogged, water cannot pump properly.
See CLEANING AND CARE on page 33.
Filter
HOW TO USE DRIP TRAY
The oven comes with the drip tray already in place under the
oven cavity or bottom. This drip tray collects the condensation
from the oven door. To remove the drip tray, pull it towards you
with both hands. To insert the drip tray, place it onto the right
and left hooks under the oven and push it in firmly, as shown in
Figure B. Always place the drip tray in the correct position.
We recommend emptying the drip tray after every cooking
session. Empty, rinse thoroughly, dry and place in correct
position. Failure to empty may cause it to overflow. The capacity
of the drip tray is sufficient for one cooking session. If cooking is
repeated without emptying the drip tray, it may overflow.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS: READ CAREFULLY BEFORE
USING THE OVEN
We recommend that you drain the water remaining inside the steam generator after each cooking session
by using the DRAIN WATER function. The DRAIN WATER function will automatically appear after the end
of each cooking session or when the water has been left inside the steam generator for over 15 hours. The
DRAIN WATER function can also be operated manually by using the INFO pad.
Operating DRAIN WATER function when it appears automatically
1. The display for DRAIN WATER function will appear automatically.
2. Check that the base tray and drip tray are in place. Remove the reservoir.
3. Press START pad. If the temperature of water is optimum for draining, "NOW DRAINING" will display
and draining will start.
"NOW COOLING" will display if the water needs to cool.
The water will automatically drain when it reaches its optimum temperature.
4. "End of draining" will display when draining has finished.
5. Carefully empty the water in the base tray and drip tray.
Operating DRAIN WATER function by using INFO pad
1. Press INFO pad.
2. Turn AUTO dial to select DRAIN WATER and press dial to confirm.
3. Follow instructions 2 - 5 above.
Notes:
1. The reservoir MUST be removed for draining. If the reservoir is not removed, START pad cannot be
pressed.
2. Should you wish to cook several things sequentially, cancel DRAIN WATER by pressing STOP/CLEAR.
It is possible to continue cooking without draining. The water should be drained at the end of every
cooking session to prevent scale build-up and the use of stale water.
3. Should you notice white or gray grains in the drain water, descale the oven. See page 31.
4. Some noise may be heard when the reservoir is removed; it is normal. It will stop in approximately 15
seconds.
5. Drain the water inside the steam generator before disconnecting the power cord.
HOW TO POSITION THE DRAIN TUBE
The drain tube will guide the water into the base tray. Slide the tube firmly into the drain hole as shown
in Figure C. Either side of the drain tube can be inserted.

Notes:
1. Only remove the drain tube for cleaning. Clean after every cooking session after draining the water.
2. Remove the drain tube and wash with tap water. Replace.

SUPER BAKE
SUPER BAKE uses superheated steam for special baking. Consult the SUPERHEATED STEAM
COOKBOOK for more information. There are 2 options within the SUPER BAKE mode.
1: GENERAL is suitable for cakes, breads, etc. 2: CONVENIENCE FOODS is suitable for lasagna,
pizza, fried chicken, etc. They are cooked without drying. SUPER BAKE mode can be programmed for
up to 2 hours 30 minutes. Oven temperature can be set between 200°F and 450°F in 25°F increments.
Baking with steam is a very special cooking mode. Refer to the separate cookbook for foods suitable for
baking with steam. Cooking time can be reduced slightly for most foods. To ensure good results when
baking something for the first time, begin to check the cooking progress after approximately threefourths of the usual baking time. If not done, continue until desired doneness is achieved. Note final
baking time for future use.
Example: To bake fried chicken for 20 minutes using SUPER BAKE CONVENIENCE FOODS at 325°F.

2. DESCALE
When the drained water in the base tray has white or gray grains in it, the oven needs descaling.
These white or gray grains, also called scale, form in the water circuit inside the oven during steam
generation, which could cause the oven to malfunction. The frequency of descaling will depend on
the hardness of the water that you use; the harder the water the more often descaling will be necessary.
Either when the white or gray grains are seen or when "Descaling necessary" appears in the display,
it is strongly recommended that descaling be done immediately. The descaling process takes about
1 hour and 30 minutes.
2. Press the AUTO
dial to confirm.
1. Press INFO twice.
3. If there is water in the steam generator, it must

CLEANING AND CARE
CLEAN THE OVEN REGULARLY. Spatters and residue remaining from prolonged use, especially at
high temperatures, are hard to clean and may interfere with good oven operation as well as decrease
the useful life of the oven.
Gently wipe the front of the door, control panel
and display with a soft cloth slightly dampened
only with water. Polish with another soft cloth.
Never use a chemical or abrasive cleaner on these
surfaces.
IMPORTANT CAUTIONS:
• DISCONNECT THE POWER CORD OR
LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN TO INACTIVATE
THE OVEN DURING CLEANING.
• ALLOW THE OVEN TO COOL BEFORE
CLEANING EXCEPT WHEN USING THE
OVEN CLEANING FUNCTION on page 32.
• DO NOT USE OVEN CLEANERS OR HARSH
SCOURING PADS ON ANY PART OF THE
OVEN.
• DO NOT USE A STEAM CLEANER.
Reservoir cavity
Clean often to ensure that no residue is inside.
Wrap a soft cloth around a long, narrow spatula
and carefully wipe all areas of the cavity.
Drain tube
After each cooking session, remove the drain tube
and wash thoroughly with hot, soapy water, including the center of the tube. Rinse and dry before replacing in the oven.
Oven cleaning - exterior
Prepare a solution of mild soap and water, immerse a soft cloth or sponge into the solution and
wring dry. Wipe exterior. Rinse cloth or sponge in
warm water and wring dry. Wipe exterior again
and polish dry.
Base tray / rack / baking tray / perforated tray
Keep clean by washing after every use in a mild
soap or detergent solution, rinsing and polishing
dry. Do not use harsh cleaners, sharp metal scrapers or stiff brushes to prevent damage to the easyclean surface. All the accessories can be washed
in the dishwasher. Place on the top rack.
Oven cleaning - interior
1. After every use while the oven is still warm,
wipe spatters or spills with a soft damp cloth or
sponge. See page 32 for directions on the
OVEN CLEANING function. Use this function
to clean thoroughly.
2. The cleaning cloth or sponge must be wrung
dry to prevent moisture or residue from entering the oven vents.
3. Do not use spray type cleaners on the oven
interior.
4. Any remaining food or fat could cause smoke
or an unpleasant smell. It is a good idea to heat
the oven using THERMAL 400°F for 20 minutes to remove any fat or residue from the interior ducts and heaters.
Reservoir
After each use, empty reservoir and rinse with clean tap
water. Do not place in the
dishwasher. Frequently, wash
in a mild soap or detergent solution, rinse and polish dry. It
may be necessary to wrap a
Filter
soft cloth around a long
spatula to wipe the inside of
the reservoir thoroughly. Note the filter in the rear
bottom of the reservoir. Use a very soft brush to
remove any build-up in the filter. The filter cannot
be removed nor replaced so special care should
be used when cleaning it. Do not use harsh cleaners, sharp metal scrapers or stiff brushes on the
reservoir or reservoir filter.
Door / door gasket / control panel
To remove all traces of dirt, regularly clean both
sides of the door, with a soft, damp cloth. Do not
use harsh, abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven door glass since they can
scratch the surface, which may result in shattering of the glass.
The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Always keep the gasket clean to prevent any damage. If water condenses inside the door gasket,
wipe dry with a soft cloth. Care should be taken
not to rub, damage, pull or move the gasket. Before cooking, always check that door gasket is lying smooth and flat. If not, steam will leak from
the door. Do not use the superheated steam oven
if it has a damaged door gasket as steam would
not be contained in the oven. Consult a Sharp Authorized Servicer.
Drip tray
Empty drip tray after each use, wash in a mild
soap or detergent solution, rinse, polish dry and
replace below the oven front. Do not clean in dishwasher.
Descaling the water circuit
During steam production, scale may form in the
water circuit inside of the oven. To remove scale,
complete the DESCALE function when indicated.
