PRECAUTIONS
GENERAL
LIQUIDS
E.G. BEVERAGES OR WATER. Overheating the liquid
beyond boiling point can occur
without evidence of bubbling.
This could result in a sudden
boil over of the hot liquid.
To prevent this possibility the
following steps should be taken:
1. Avoid using straight-sided containers with
narrow necks.
2. Stir the liquid before placing the container
in the oven and let the teaspoon remain
in the container.
3. After heating, allow standing for a short
time, stirring again before carefully removing the container from the oven.
THIS APPLIANCE IS DESIGNED FOR DOMESTIC USE ONLY!
THE APPLIANCE SHOULD NOT BE OPERATED without food
in the oven when using microwaves. Operation in
this manner is likely to damage the appliance.
THE VENTILATION OPENINGS on the oven must not be
covered. Blocking the air intake or exhaust vents
may cause damage to the oven and poor cooking results.
IF YOU PRACTICE OPERATING the oven, put a glass
of water inside. The water will absorb the microwave energy and the oven will not be damaged.
CAREFUL
ALWAYS REFER to a microwave cookbook for details. Especially, if cooking or reheating food
that contains alcohol.
DO NOT STORE OR USE this appliance outdoors.
DO NOT USE this product near a kitchen sink, in
a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, or
similar.
AFTER HEATING BABY FOOD or liquids in a
baby bottle or in a baby food
jar, always stir and check the
temperature before serving.
This will ensure that the heat is evenly distributed
and the risk of scalding or burns can be avoided.
Ensure the Lid and the Teat is removed before heating!
DO NOT USE the cavity for any storage purposes.
REMOVE WIRE TWIST-TIES from paper or
plastic bags before placing bag in
the oven.
DEEP-FRYING
DO NOT USE YOUR MICROWAVE oven for deep-frying,
because the oil temperature cannot be
controlled.
USE HOT PADS OR OVEN MITTS to prevent
burns, when touching containers, oven
parts, and pan after cooking. Accessible parts may become hot during use,
young children should be kept away.

GB
ACCESSORIES
GENERAL
THERE ARE a number of accessories available on
the market. Before you buy, ensure they are
suitable for microwave use.
COVER
THE COVER IS USED TO cover food
during cooking and reheating with microwaves only and
helps to reduce spattering, retain food moisture as well as
reducing the time needed.
USE the cover for two level reheating.
ENSURE THAT THE UTENSILS YOU USE are oven proof
and allow microwaves to
pass through them before
cooking.
WHEN YOU PUT FOOD AND ACCESSORIES in the microwave oven, ensure that they do not come in
contact with the interior of the oven.
This is especially important with accessories made of metal or metal parts.

damage the control panel, and the interior and exterior oven surfaces. Use a cloth with a mild detergent
or a paper towel with spray glass cleaner.
Apply spray glass cleaner to a paper towel.
DO NOT SPRAY directly on the oven.
AT REGULAR INTERVALS, especially
if spill overs have occurred, remove the turntable, the turntable support and wipe the base of
the oven clean.
THIS OVEN IS DESIGNED to operate with the turntable in place.
DO NOT operate the microwave oven when
the turntable has been removed for cleaning.
USE A SOFT AND DAMP CLOTH with mild detergent
to clean the interior surfaces, front and rear of
the door and the door opening.
DO NOT ALLOW GREASE or food particles to
build up around the door.
FOR STUBBORN STAINS, boil a cup of water in the
oven for 2 or 3 minutes. Steam will soften the
marks.
ADDING SOME LEMON JUICE to a cup of water, placing this on the turntable and boiling for a few

CAREFUL CLEANING:
THE CRISP-PLATE should be cleaned in mild, detergent water. Heavily soiled areas can be
cleaned with a scouring cloth
and a mild cleanser.
ALWAYS let the crisp-plate
cool off before cleaning.
DO NOT immerse or rinse with water while
the crisp-plate is hot. Quick cooling may
damage it.
DO NOT USE STEEL-WOOL PADS. This will scratch
the surface.
DO NOT USE STEAM CLEANING APPLIANCES when
cleaning your microwave oven.
THE GRILL ELEMENT does not need cleaning since
the intense heat will burn off any splashes, but
the ceiling beneath it may need regular cleaning. This should be done with a soft and damp
cloth with mild detergent.
IF THE GRILL IS NOT USED REGULARLY, it should be
run for 10 minutes a month to burn off any
splashes, in order to reduce the risk of fire.
