Never open the appliance door if there is smoke inside.
Switch off the appliance. Pull out the mains plug or switch off
the circuit breaker in the fuse box.
■
Do not place greaseproof paper loosely over accessories
during preheating. A draught is created when the appliance
door is opened. The greaseproof paper may come into
contact with the heating element and catch fire. Always
weight down the greaseproof paper with a dish or a baking
tin. Only cover the surface required with greaseproof paper.
The greaseproof paper must not protrude over the
accessories.
The surface of the appliance could rust through over time if it is
not cleaned properly. Microwave energy may escape. Clean the
appliance on a regular basis.
Casing open

consumption. Using the microwave for other purposes may be
dangerous and may result in damage, e.g. heated slippers and
grain or cereal pillows could catch fire, even several hours later.
Risk of burns!
Never remove ovenware or accessories from the cooking
compartment without an oven cloth or oven gloves.
3
shellfish and crustaceans. Always prick the yoke when
baking or poaching eggs.
Ovenware
Risk of injury!
■ Porcelain or ceramic ovenware can have small perforations in
the handles or lids. These perforations conceal a cavity
below. Any moisture that penetrates this cavity could cause
the ovenware to crack.
■
■
Always prick the skin of foods that have a skin or peel
such as apples, tomatoes, potatoes and sausages before
cooking. to prevent the peel or skin from bursting.
Drying food
Only use ovenware that is suitable for use in a microwave.
Risk of fire!
Risk of burns!
Never use the microwave to dry food.
Hot food can heat up ovenware. Always use an oven cloth or
oven gloves to remove ovenware and accessories from the
cooking compartment.
Food with a low water content
Microwave power and time
Risk of fire!
Risk of fire!
Never defrost or heat food with a low water content, e.g. bread,
at too high a power or for too long.
Do not select a microwave power or time setting that is higher
than necessary. The food could catch fire and cause damage
to the appliance. Follow the information provided in this
instruction manual.
Cooking oil
Packaging
Causes of damage
Risk of fire!
■ Never heat food in heat-retaining packages.
Caution!
■
Risk of fire!
Never use the microwave to heat cooking oil on its own.
■
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.
■
Baking tray, greaseproof paper, aluminium foil or ovenware
on the cooking compartment floor: Do not place baking trays
or ovenware on the cooking compartment floor. Do not line
the cooking compartment floor with aluminium foil. This will
cause heat accumulation. The baking and roasting times will
no longer be correct and the enamel will be damaged.
■
Foil containers: Do not use foil containers in the appliance.
They damage the appliance by producing sparks.
■
Water in the hot cooking compartment: Never pour water into
the hot cooking compartment. This will cause steam. The
temperature change can cause damage to the enamel.
■
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.
■
Fruit juice: When cooking very moist fruit flans, do not fill the
universal pan too generously. Fruit juice which runs out of the
universal pan leaves behind stains which cannot be removed.
■
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").
■
Microwave popcorn: Never set the microwave power too
high. Use a power setting no higher than 600 watts. Always
Do not leave food heating unattended in containers made of
plastic, paper or other combustible materials.
Risk of burning!
Airtight packaging may burst when food is heated. Follow the
information provided on the packaging. Always use an oven
cloth or oven gloves to remove meals.
Drinks
Risk of scalding!
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 can suddenly boil
over and spatter. When heating liquids, always place a spoon in
the container. This will prevent delayed boiling.
Risk of explosion!
■ Never heat drinks in containers that have been tightly sealed.
■
Never overheat alcoholic drinks.
Baby food
Risk of burns!
Never heat baby food in closed containers. Always remove the
lid or teat. Stir or shake well after the food has been heated.
This is the only way to ensure even heat distribution. Check the
temperature of the food before it is given to the child.
Foods with shells or skin
Risk of burns!
■ Never cook eggs in their shells. Never reheat hard-boiled
eggs as they may crack or explode. The same applies to

Notes
■ When you press a button, the selected power lights up.
Note:
In the Tested for you in our cooking studio section, you will find
examples for defrosting, heating and cooking with the
microwave oven.
Suitable dishes are heat-resistant ovenware made of glass,
glass ceramic, porcelain, ceramic or heat-resistant plastic.
These materials allow microwaves to pass through.
You can also use serving dishes. This saves you having to
transfer food from one dish to another. You should only use
ovenware with decorative gold or silver trim if the manufacturer
guarantees that they are suitable for use in microwaves.
Unsuitable ovenware
Metal ovenware is unsuitable. Metal does not allow microwaves
to pass through. Food in covered metal containers will remain
cold.
Caution!
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 destroy the glass on the inside of the door.

Automatic switch-off
Your oven has an automatic switch-off function. It is activated if
no cooking time is set and the settings have not been changed
for a long time. The point at which this occurs depends on the
temperature or grill setting that has been set.
Switch-off activated
“Automatic switch-off" appears in the display. Operation is
interrupted. Press any button to clear the text. You can make
new settings.
Note: If a cooking time is set, the oven stops heating once the

not necessary.
Self-cleaning
During self-cleaning, the cooking compartment is heated to
approx. 480 °C. Any food residues from roasting, grilling and
baking are burnt to ash. Self-cleaning takes approx. 2 hours,
including the heating up and cooling down times.
Notes
■ For safety reasons, the oven door locks automatically. You
cannot open the oven door again until the cooking
compartment has cooled slightly and the padlock symbol for
the locking mechanism disappears. Do not attempt to push in
the latch by hand.
■
Do not attempt to open the appliance door while self-cleaning
is in operation. The cleaning process may be cancelled.
■
The cooking compartment light remains off during selfcleaning. The temperature control bars do not appear.
ã=Risk of fire!
■
■
The outside of the appliance becomes very hot. Make sure
that nothing is placed against the front of the appliance.
Small children must be kept at a safe distance from the
appliance.
Never hang combustible objects, e.g. tea towels, on the door
handle.
Preparation
It is sufficient to clean the cooking compartment every two to
three months. If requiered, you can clean the oven more
frequently than this. Cleaning only requires approximately
3.8 kilowatt hours.
Setting the self-cleaning
1. Press the V button.
2. Start the cleaning operation with†.
The oven door locks shortly after operation starts. The H
symbol lights up to indicate that the lock has been activated.
Once cleaning has finished
Take all accessories and ovenware out of the oven.
“Self-cleaning finished” appears in the status bar. The oven
door cannot be opened again until the H symbol goes out.
ã=Risk of serious damage to health.!
Cancelling cleaning
Never use pyrolytic cleaning for cleaning non-stick baking trays
and baking tins. High temperatures damage the non-stick
coating and poisonous gases are released.
ã=Risk of fire!
Loose food residues, grease and meat juices may catch fire.
Wipe the oven floor, the inside of the oven door and the edges
around the front of the oven with a damp cloth. Do not scour
the oven seal.
Switch the oven off with the ‡ button. Do not open the oven
door until the H symbol disappears.
Setting cleaning to run overnight
So that you can use your oven throughout the day, delay the
end of the cleaning process to during the night. See the Timesetting options section, setting a later end time.
After self-cleaning
Once the cooking compartment has cooled down, wipe out the
ash that has been left behind in the cooking compartment with
a damp cloth.
16
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.
ã=Risk of short circuit!
Never use high-pressure cleaners or steam cleaners to clean
the oven.
ã=Risk of burns!
Never clean the appliance immediately after switching off. Let
the appliance cool down.
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.
■
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.

Energy and environment tips
Here you can find tips on how to save energy when baking and
roasting and how to dispose of your appliance properly.
Saving energy
Only preheat the oven if this is specified in the recipe or in the
operating instruction tables.
Use dark, black lacquered or enamelled baking tins. They
absorb the heat particularly well.
Open the appliance door as little as possible during cooking,
baking or roasting.
It is best to bake several cakes one after the other. The cooking
compartment is still warm. This may reduce the baking time for
the second cake.
For longer cooking times, you can switch the oven off
10 minutes before the end of the cooking time and use the
residual heat to finish cooking.
Environmentally-friendly disposal
Dispose of packaging in an environmentally-friendly manner.
This appliance complies with European Directive
2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic
Equipment (WEEE). The directive gives a framework for
the collection and recycling of old appliances, which is
valid across the EU.
Automatic programmes
The automatic programmes enable you to prepare food very
easily. You select the programme and enter the weight of your
food. The automatic programme makes the optimum setting.

■
Cover thin and protruding parts with small pieces of
aluminium foil. This prevents these parts from cooking
prematurely. Ensure that the aluminium foil does not touch
the walls of the cooking compartment.
■
After defrosting, allow the food to defrost for a further 10 to
90 minutes so that it acquires an even temperature.
■
Liquid will be produced when defrosting meat, poultry or fish.
Drain off this liquid when you turn the food. Under no
circumstances should it be used for other purposes or be
allowed to come into contact with other foods.
■
Place beef, lamb and pork on the ovenware fatty-side down
first.
■
Bread should only be defrosted in the required amounts, as it
quickly becomes stale.
■
After turning, remove any minced meat that has already
defrosted.
■
Whole poultry should be placed in the ovenware breast-side
down and poultry portions skin-side down. Cover legs and
wings with small pieces of aluminium foil.
■
For whole fish, cover the tail with aluminium foil, for fish fillets
cover the edges and for fish steaks cover the protruding
ends.

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.
■
Use the accessories supplied. Additional accessories may be
obtained from specialist retailers or from the after-sales
service.
■
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.
Insert the wire rack at level 1. Place the ovenware in the centre.
The food will then absorb the microwaves from all sides.
Defrosting
Notes
Place the frozen food in an open container on the wire rack.
■
■
Always use an oven cloth or oven gloves when taking
accessories or ovenware out of the cooking compartment.
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.
■
Defrosting, heating up and cooking with the
microwave
Turn or stir the food once or twice during the defrosting time.
Large pieces of food should be turned several times. When
turning, remove any liquid that has resulted 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.
The following tables provide you with numerous options and
settings for the microwave.

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 .
■
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.
Only for cakes without icing, cream or
crème pâtissière
■
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!
ã=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.

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
■
Additional information can be found in the Baking tips section
following the tables.
About the tables
■
Always place the cake tin in the centre of the wire rack.
Notes
■ The times given apply to food placed in a cold oven.
■
Baking tins
Note: It is best to use dark-coloured metal baking tins.
The temperature and baking time depend on the consistency
and amount of the mixture. 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, 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.
good, but is soggy on the inside (sticky,
When baking cakes with a moist topping, bake the base first, cover with almonds or
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.

allows better distribution of the meat juices.
About the tables
Poultry:
Turn the pieces of meat after Z of the cooking time has
elapsed.
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.
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 grilling
Notes
Always keep the oven door closed when grilling and do not
preheat.
■
■
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 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
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.

Tips for roasting and grilling
The table does not contain information for the For small roasts, select a higher temperature and a shorter cooking time. For
weight of the joint.
larger roasts, select a lower temperature and a longer cooking time.
34
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.
Bakes, gratins, toast with toppings
Notes
■ The values in the table apply to food placed in a cold oven.
■
Place soufflés in individual moulds or in a deep ovenproof
dish. Preheat the cooking compartment.
Toast with topping: lay 4 slices next to each other in the
centre of the universal pan. Distribute 12 slices evenly over
the universal pan.
■
Use large flat ovenware for bakes and gratins. Food takes
longer to cook in narrow, deep containers and browns more
on top.
■
■
Place the bake in microwaveable ovenware on the wire rack.
■
■
Leave bakes and gratins to cook in the oven for a further
5 minutes after switching off.

Slow cooking
Slow cooking, also known as low-temperature cooking, is the
ideal cooking method for all tender pieces of meat which are to
be cooked medium rare or "à point". Meat remains very
succulent and tender. The benefit of this cooking method is that
it allows lots of scope for menu planning because slow-cooked
meat is easy to keep warm.
■
All tender joints of poultry, beef, veal, pork and lamb are
suitable for slow cooking. Searing and cooking times depend
on the size of the piece of meat.
■
Sear the meat at a very high heat and for a sufficiently long
time on all sides, even on the ends.
■
In order to check whether the meat is cooked, use a meat
thermometer. A core temperature of 60 °C should be
maintained for at least 30 minutes.
■
You can also slow cook your meat in ovenware without a lid.
The cooking times will be increased.
■
Even large joints of meat do not need to be turned.
■
You can cut the meat immediately after slow cooking. No
standing time is required.
■
Due to the special cooking method, the meat always looks
pink on the inside. This does not mean, however, that it is raw
or not well done enough.
Setting the Slow cook option
Use shallow ovenware, e.g. a serving dish made out of
porcelain or a glass roasting dish with a lid. Always place the
ovenware with lid on the wire rack at level 1.
1. Select . Slow cook and a temperature between 70 and
100 °C. Preheat the cooking compartment, thus warming the
ovenware at the same time.
2. Rapidly heat a little fat in a pan. Sear the meat on all sides,
even on the ends, and place immediately on the preheated
ovenware.
3. Place the ovenware in the cooking compartment and restart
the appliance.
Notes
■ Only use fresh, good-quality meat Carefully remove sinews
and fat from around the edge. Fat develops a strong, distinct
taste during slow cooking.

Tips for slow cooking
Slow-cooked meat is not as hot as conventionally
roasted meat.
So that the roasted meat does not cool too fast, warm the plates and
serve the gravy very hot.
If you wish to keep slow-cooked meat warm.
After slow cooking, turn the temperature down to 70 °C. Small pieces of
meat can be kept warm for up to 45 minutes, larger pieces for up to
2 hours.
Test dishes
The quality and function of microwave combination appliances

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.
Baking biscuits
Oven chips
Max. 200 °C in Top/bottom heating or max. 180 °C in 3D hot air or hot air mode.
Max. 190° C in Top/bottom heating or max. 170 °C in 3D hot air or hot air mode. Egg
white and egg yolk reduce the formation of acrylamide. Distribute thinly and evenly
over the baking tray. Cook at least 400 g at once on a baking tray so that the chips do
not dry out.
