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.
Do not store or use the oven outdoors.
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.

removal of a cover which gives
protection against exposure to
microwave energy.
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.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Do not allow grease or dirt to build
up on the door seals and adjacent
parts. Follow the instructions for
“Care & Cleaning”. Failure to
maintain the oven in a clean
condition could lead to a
deterioration of the surface that
could adversely affect the life of the
appliance and possibly result in a
hazardous situation.
Microwave heating of beverages can
result in delayed eruptive boiling,
therefore care has to be taken when
handling the container.
To prevent sudden eruption of boiling liquid and possible
scalding:
1. Stir liquid prior to heating/reheating.
2. It is advisable to insert a glass rod or similar utensil into
the liquid whilst reheating.
3. Let liquid stand for at least 20 seconds in the oven at the
end of cooking time to prevent delayed eruptive boiling.
Do not cook eggs in their shells, and
whole hard boiled eggs should not
be heated in microwave ovens since
they may explode even after
microwave cooking has ended. To
cook or reheat eggs which have not
been scrambled or mixed, pierce the
yolks and the whites, or the eggs
may explode. Shell and slice hard
boiled eggs before reheating them in
the microwave oven.
Individuals with PACEMAKERS should check with their doctor
or the manufacturer of the pacemaker for precautions regarding
microwave ovens.
To avoid the possibility of electric shock
Under no circumstances should you remove the outer cabinet.
Never spill or insert any objects into the door lock openings or
ventilation openings. In the event of a spill, turn off and unplug the
oven immediately and call your local Service Force Centre.
Do not immerse the power supply cord or plug in water or any
other liquid.
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.
Do not attempt to replace the oven
lamp yourself or allow anyone who
is not authorised by Service Force to
do so. If the oven lamp fails, please
consult your dealer or contact your
local Service Force Centre.
Pierce the skin of such foods as potatoes, sausages and fruit
before cooking, or they may explode.
To avoid the possibility of burns
Use pot holders or oven gloves when removing food from the
oven to prevent burns.
Always open containers, popcorn makers, oven cooking bags,
etc., away from the face and hands to avoid steam burns.
If the power supply cord of this appliance is damaged, it must
be replaced with a special cord. The exchange must be made
by an authorised Service Force technician.
To avoid the possibility of explosion and sudden boiling
To avoid burns, always test food
temperature and stir before serving
and pay special attention to the
temperature of food and drink given
to babies, children or the elderly.
Warning: Liquids and other foods must
not be heated in sealed containers
since they are liable to explode.
Never use sealed containers. Remove seals and lids before
use. Sealed containers can explode due to a build up of
pressure even after the oven has been turned off.
Take care when microwaving liquids. Use a wide-mouthed
container to allow bubbles to escape.

MICROWAVE COOKING ADVICE
MICROWAVE COOKING
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 foods will take longer to cook than food at
of food
room temperature. Cut into foods with fillings (e.g. jam doughnuts) to release heat or steam.
COOKING TECHNIQUES
Arrange
Cover
Pierce
Place the thickest parts of food towards the outside of the dish (e.g. chicken drumsticks).
Use vented microwave cling film or a suitable lid.
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. Always stir and rearrange from the outside
rearrange
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).

MANUAL DEFROSTING
For manual defrosting (without operating the Auto defrost feature), use 270 W. The defrost symbol appears in the window

MICROWAVE POWER LEVELS
Your oven has 6 power levels:
900 W/HIGH Used for fast cooking or reheating (e.g. soup,
casseroles, canned food, hot beverages, vegetables, fish).
630 W Used for longer cooking of dense foods such as roast
joints, meat loaf and plated meals, also for sensitive dishes such
as cheese sauce and sponge cakes. At this reduced setting,
the sauce will not boil over and food will cook evenly without
over cooking at the sides.
450 W For dense foods which require a long cooking time when
cooked conventionally, (e.g. beef dishes) it is advisable to use
this power setting to ensure the meat will be tender.
270 W/DEFROST To defrost, select this power setting, to ensure
that the dish defrosts evenly. This setting is also ideal for
simmering rice, pasta, dumplings and cooking egg custard.
90 W For gentle defrosting (e.g. cream gateaux or pastry).
0 W For standing/kitchen timer.

RECIPES
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.
All the recipes in this book are calculated on the basis of 4 servings
- unless otherwise stated.
