SAFETY INFORMATION
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS: READ
CAREFULLY AND KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE
To avoid the danger of fire
The microwave oven should not be left
unattended during operation. Power levels that
are too high or cooking times that are too long
may overheat foods resulting in a fire. The
electrical outlet must be readily accessible so that
the unit can be unplugged easily in an
emergency. It is recommended that a separate
circuit serving only this appliance be provided.
Do not store or use the oven outdoors.
If food being heated begins
to smoke, DO NOT OPEN
THE DOOR. Turn off and
unplug the oven and wait
until the food has stopped
smoking. Opening the door
while food is smoking may
cause a fire. Only use
microwave-safe containers
and utensils. Do not leave
the oven unattended when
using disposable plastic,
paper or other combustible
food containers. Clean the
waveguide cover, the oven
cavity, the turntable and
turntable support 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, only use 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. See the corresponding hints in this
operation manual.
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 door
safety 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.

Other warnings
Never modify the oven in any way. 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
Never operate the oven when it is empty except
where recommended in the operation manual,
see page 14 note 2. Doing so may damage the
oven. When using a browning dish or selfheating material, always place a heat-resistant
insulator such as a porcelain plate under it to
prevent damage to the turntable and turntable
support due to heat stress. The preheating time
specified in the dish’s instructions must not be
exceeded. Do not use metal utensils, which
reflect microwaves and may cause electrical
arcing. Do not put cans in the oven. Only use the
turntable and the turntable support designed for
this oven. Do not operate the oven without the
turntable.
To prevent the turntable from breaking:
a) Before cleaning the turntable with water, leave
the turntable to cool.
b) Do not put hot foods or hot utensils on a cold
turntable.
c) Do not put cold foods or cold utensils on a
hot turntable.
Do not place anything on the outer cabinet
during operation. Do not use plastic containers
for microwaving if the oven is still hot from using
the GRILL mode, DUAL GRILL mode and AUTO
COOK operation because they may melt. Plastic
containers must not be used during above
modes unless the container manufacturer says
they are suitable.
Important!
If you are unsure how to connect your oven,
please consult an authorised, qualified
electrician. Neither the manufacturer nor the
dealer can accept any liability for damage to the
oven or personal injury resulting from failure to
observe the correct electrical connection
procedure. Water vapour or drops may
occasionally form on the oven walls or around
the door seals and sealing surfaces. This is a
normal occurrence and is not an indication of
microwave leakage or a malfunction.

OPERATION
MICROWAVE COOKING ADVICE
To cook/defrost food in a microwave oven, the
microwave energy must be able to pass through
the container to penetrate the food. Therefore it
is important to choose suitable cookware.
Round/oval dishes are preferable to
square/oblong ones, as the food in the corners
tends to overcook.
It is important to turn, rearrange or stir food to
ensure even heating.
Standing time is necessary after cooking, as it
enables the heat to disperse equally throughout
the food.
Food characteristics
Composition Foods high in fat or sugar (e.g. Christmas pudding, mince pies) require less heating
time. Care should be taken as overheating can lead to fire.
Density
Food density will affect the amount of cooking time needed. Light porous foods,
such as cakes or bread, cook more quickly than heavy, dense foods, such as roasts
and casseroles.
Quantity
The cooking time must be increased as the amount of food placed in the oven
increases (e.g. four potatoes will take longer to cook than two).
Size
Small foods and small pieces cook faster than large ones, as microwaves can penetrate
from all sides to the centre. For even cooking make all the pieces the same size.
Shape
Foods which are irregular in shape, such as chicken breasts or drumsticks, take
longer to cook in the thicker parts. Round shapes cook more evenly than square
shapes when microwave cooking.
Temperature The initial temperature of food affects the amount of cooking time needed. Chilled
of food
foods will take longer to cook than food at room temperature. Cut into foods with
fillings (e.g. jam doughnuts) to release heat or steam.
Cooking techniques
Arrange
Place the thickest parts of food towards the outside of the dish (e.g. chicken
drumsticks).
Cover
Use vented microwave cling film or a suitable lid.
Pierce
Foods with a shell, skin or membrane must be pierced in several places before
cooking or reheating as steam will build up and may cause food to explode (e.g.
potatoes, fish, chicken, sausages).
Important! Eggs should not be heated using microwave power as they may
explode, even after cooking has ended (e.g. poached, hard boiled).
Stir, turn and For even cooking it is essential to stir, turn and rearrange food during cooking.
rearrange
Always stir and rearrange from the outside towards the centre.
Stand
Standing time is necessary after cooking to enable the heat to disperse equally
throughout the food.
Shield
Some areas of food being defrosted may become warm. Warm areas can be
shielded with small pieces of foil, which reflect microwaves (e.g. legs and wings on a
chicken).

RECIPES
All the recipes in this book are calculated on
the basis of 4 servings unless otherwise
stated.
Adapting recipes for the microwave oven
If you would like to adapt your favourite
recipes for the microwave, you should take
note of the following: shorten cooking times
by a third to a half. Follow the example of the
recipes in this book.
Foods which have a high moisture content
such as meat, fish, poultry, vegetables, fruit,
stews and soups can be prepared in your
microwave without any difficulty.
Foods which have little moisture, such as
platters of food, should have the surface
moistened prior to heating or cooking.
The amount of liquid to be added to raw
foods, which are to be braised, should be
reduced to about two thirds of the quantity in
the original recipe. If necessary, add more
liquid during cooking.
The amount of fat to be added can be
reduced considerably. A small amount of
butter, margarine or oil is sufficient to flavour
food. For this reason your microwave is
excellent for preparing low-fat foods as part of
a diet.
