When positioning the microwave oven, it should be set on a steady, flat surface.
2. Ventilation: Do not block air vents. If they are blocked during operation, the oven may overheat and eventually cause
oven failure. For proper ventilation, keep three inches of space between the oven's top, sides, rear and the area
where the unit is to be installed.
3. Radio and TV reception:
Poor television reception and radio interference may result if the oven is located close to a
TV, radio, antenna or antenna wire. Position the oven as far from them as possible.
4. Temperature
and moisture:
Keep the oven away from hot air, steam or splashing liquids when choosing a place to
locate it; otherwise, the unit's operation may be adversely affected, causing it to break down.
5. Power supply:
• Check your local power source. This microwave oven requires a 120V, 60Hz power supply.
• Use a receptacle that will accept the ground prong.
A. A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a
longer cord.
B. Longer cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
C. If a long cord or extension cord is used, (1) the marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be
at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, (2) the extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire
cord, and (3) the longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or tabletop where it
can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.
6. Examine the oven for any damage such as: Dents, a misaligned door, broken door or a dent in the cavity. If any of
the above are visible, DO NOT INSTALL THE UNIT. Notify the dealer immediately.

Arranging the foods on the plate will determine how evenly they cook. Dense foods (such as meat) and compact
vegetables (such as mashed potatoes) should be placed around the edges and spread out as much as possible to
expose them to the microwave energy. Large amounts of food should be spread out to receive more energy than smaller
ones. Covering dry meat slices with gravy will help speed the heating. Light, airy foods (such as rice, delicate seafood,
etc.) absorb energy quickly. Place them in the center of the plate.

THE PRiNCiPLES
OF MICROWAVE
COOKING
Microwaves are a form of high frequency radio waves similar to those used by a radio including AM, FM and CB.
Electricity
is converted into microwave energy by the magnetron tube. From the magnetron tube, microwave
energy is transmitted
to the oven where it is reflected,
transmitted,
and absorbed
by the food.
Reflection
Microwaves
are reflected
by metal just as a ball is bounced off of a wall. For this reason, metal utensils are not
suitable for use in the microwave. A combination of stationary interior walls and a rotating metal turntable or stirrer fan
helps assure that the microwaves are well distributed within the oven cavity to produce even cooking.
Transmission
Microwaves pass through some materials such as paper, glass and plastic much like sunlight shining through a
window. Because these substances do not absorb or reflect the microwave energy, they are ideal materials for
microwave oven cooking containers.
Absorption
During cooking, microwaves will be absorbed by food. They penetrate to a depth of about 3/4 to I 1/2 inches.
Microwave energy activates the molecules in the food (especially water, fat and sugar), and heat is produced, if you
vigorously rub your hands together, you will feel heat produced by friction. The internal cooking of larger foods is done
by conduction as the heat which is produced by friction is conducted to the middle of the food. Foods also continue to
cook by conduction during standing time.
FOOD CHARACTERISTICS
Quantity:
The amount of food placed in a microwave oven has a direct effect on the cooking time. Small amounts of food
or liquid require less cooking time than larger amounts of the same substance.
decreases.
As quantity increases, concentration
Size: Small pieces cook faster than large ones. To speed cooking, cut pieces smaller than two inches (5 cm), so microwaves
can penetrate to the middle from all sides. Pieces which are similar in size and shape cook more evenly.
Shape: Many foods are uneven, like a chicken, ribs or broccoli. The thin parts will cook faster than the thick parts, while
uniformly thick foods cook evenly. To compensate for irregular shapes, place thin pieces toward the center of the dish
and thicker pieces toward the edge of the dish.
Starting Temperature: Frozen or refrigerated foods take longer to cook than foods at room temperature.
Bone and Fat: Because bones conduct heat, the side of the meat the bone is on will cook first, while boneless cuts cook
slower but more evenly. Fat attracts microwaves. The middle of these foods are cooked by heat conduction.
Moisture Content: Microwaves are attracted by moisture. Naturally moist foods absorb microwaves better than dry ones.
Add a minimum of liquid to moist foods, as excess water slows cooking.
Density: The density of food determines how easily the microwaves can penetrate and how quickly it will cook. Porous
foods, like chopped beef or mashed potatoes, microwave faster than dense ones like steak or whole potatoes.
Piercing: Steam builds up pressure in foods which are tightly covered by a skin or membrane. Pierce potatoes, egg yolks
and chicken livers to prevent bursting.
MICROWAVE
Stirring:
TECHNIQUES
Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or twice during cooking to equalize heat and speed microwaving.
Foods will not burn or stick, so there's no need to stir constantly as you do in conventional cooking.
Arrangement: Arrange foods with thin or delicate ends, like drumsticks or asparagus spears with the thick or tougher portions
to the outside of the dish. The parts which need more cooking will receive more energy, so food will microwave evenly.
Spacing: Individual foods, such as baked potatoes and cupcakes will cook more evenly if placed in the oven an equal
distance apart. When possible, arrange foods in a circular pattern. Similarly, when placing foods in a baking dish, arrange
around the outside of dish, not lined up next to each other. Food should not be stacked on top of each other.
Rearrangement: Rearrange overlapping areas, like tails of long fish fillets, from top to bottom, and closely packed pieces, like
meatballs, from the outside to the center of the dish.
18
Standing
Time: Standing time is especially important in microwave cooking. Microwave energy creates heat in the outer
layers of the food. As a result d normal conduction, the food continues to cook for a few minutes after removal from the oven.
Letting roasts, large whole vegetables, casseroles and cakes stand to finish cooking allows the middles to cook completely
without overcooking, drying or toughening the outsides.
Covering: Covering speeds cooking time, retains moisture, tenderizes, insures even cooking and prevents spattering.
Casserole lids or plastic wrap are used for a tighter seal. Vent plastic by turning back one edge at the side of dish to form a
narrow slot where excess steam can escape. Various degrees of moisture retention are also obtained by using wax paper or
paper towels.
Browning:
Microwave energy cooks some foods so quickly that the fats and sugars within the food do not have time to
caramelize and give a "browned" appearance. Browning agents do not affect the quality of microwaved foods, but can add
color and flavor. For meats and poultry, use bouquet sauce diluted with water or melted butter, soy, Worcestershire, barbecue
or steak sauce, a sprinkling of paprika or dry gravy mix; jelly glaze or crumb coating. Frosting and topping finish cakes and
breads. Top casseroles at the end of microwaving with grated cheese or crumbs.
Some Foods do not Microwave Well
i Eggs in Shells and hard boiled eggs can burst.
Pancakes do not crust, but they reheat well. Fully-prepared, frozen pancakes are available for microwaving.
i Deep Fat Frying can cause burns.
Bottles with narrow necks may shatter if heated.
iPop Popcorn
only in special microwave poppers. Do not use oil unless specified by the manufacturer, or heat longer

HOT SNACKS
AND APPETIZERS
Hot hors d'oeuvres and appetizers can be prepared very quickly in the oven by the hostess, or individual servings may be
prepared by guests.
Many appetizers may be cooked on the serving platter, provided the platter does not have metal trim. A time saver
tip-prepare these foods ahead of time, refrigerate or freeze and refresh in the oven at serving time. A plate of appetizers
will take only seconds to prepare or refresh.
Cheese melts very rapidly and will toughen if overcooked, so watch foods combined
overcooking will not occur. As soon as cheese starts to bubble, cooking is completed.
with cheese closely so that
Appetizers that have a crisp pastry exterior are best prepared in a conventional oven.
To prepare appetizers wrapped in bacon, it will be necessary to precook the bacon and then wrap around the foods.
Oysters wrapped in bacon are easier to prepare in the broiler of your conventional range.
Seafood mixtures can be prepared in serving shells as microwave energy will pass through the seafood shells without
heating. Aluminum foil should not be used for shells.
If spreads are placed on crackers, care should be taken not to overcook as moisture from the food will cause crackers to
become soggy. Crackers used for spreads should be very dry and crisp. This helps avoid sogginess. Heat only until
spread is at serving temperature.
The time required to heat all appetizers will depend on the amount of food, and the number and the type of dish selected.
Remember the food will become very hot even if the dish is cool. Cheese mixtures retain heat longer when heated with
microwave energy.
