Notes
■ Preparing food
Use food that has been frozen at -18 °C and stored in
portion-sized quantities that are as thin as possible.
Take the food to be defrosted out of all packaging and weigh
it. You need to know the weight to set the programme.
■
2. Press the f button.
The indicator light above the button lights up and a
suggested weight appears.
■
Ovenware
Place the food in a microwaveable shallow dish, e.g. a china
or glass plate, but do not cover.
■
Resting time
The defrosted food should be left to stand for an additional
10 to 30 minutes until it reaches an even temperature. Large
pieces of meat require a longer standing time than smaller
pieces. Flat pieces of meat and items made from minced
meat should be separated from each other before leaving to
stand.
After this time, you can continue to prepare the food, even
though thick pieces of meat may still be frozen in the middle.
The giblets can be removed from poultry at this point.

■ Ovenware
The food must be cooked in microwaveable cookware with a
lid. For rice, you should use a large, deep dish.
■
Preparing food
Weigh out the food. You need to know the weight to set the
programme.
Rice:
Do not use boil-in-the-bag rice. Add the required amount of
water, as specified on the packaging. This is usually two or
three times the quantity of rice.
Potatoes:
For boiled potatoes, cut the fresh potatoes into small, evensized pieces. Add one tablespoon of water for each 100 g
boiled potatoes, and a little salt.
Fresh vegetables:
Weigh out the fresh, trimmed vegetables. Cut the vegetables
into small, even-sized pieces. Add a tbsp water for each
100 g vegetables.

Signal
While the programme is running, a signal sounds after some
time. Stir the food.
Programme no.

Cooking
Resting time
Once the programme has finished, stir the food again. You
should leave it to stand for another 5 to 10 minutes until it
reaches an even temperature.
The cooking result will depend on the quality and consistency
of the food.

Information regarding the tables
■
Notes
■ Place the frozen food in an open container on the turntable.
The following tables provide you with numerous options and
settings for the microwave.
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.
■
■
■
Always place the ovenware on the turntable.
Defrost
Liquid will be produced when defrosting meat or poultry.
Drain off this liquid when turning meat and poultry and under
no circumstances use it for other purposes or allow it to
come into contact with other foods.
Turn or stir the food once or twice during the defrosting time.
Large pieces of food should be turned several times.
Leave defrosted items to stand at room temperature for a
further 10 to 20 minutes so that the temperature is even
throughout. The giblets can be removed from poultry at this
point. The meat can still be further prepared, even if it has a
small frozen core.

Defrosting, heating up or cooking frozen food
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.
■
■
■
■
■
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!
: 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 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.
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.

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.
Condensation
Condensation may appear on the door window, interior walls
and floor. This is normal. This does not affect how the
microwave operates. Wipe away the condensation after
cooking.
