About microwave energy
Before you start
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves. The oven uses the prebuilt
magnetron to generate microwaves which are used to cook or reheat food without deforming
or discolouring the food.
1. The microwaves generated by the
magnetron are distributed uniformly
through the whirling distribution system.
This is why the food is cooked evenly.
2. The microwaves are absorbed down to
the food up to a depth of approx. 2.5 cm.
Then, the microwaves are dissipated
inside the food as cooking continues.
3. The cooking time is affected by the
following conditions of the food.
• Quantity and density
• Moisture content
• Initial temperature (especially, when
frozen)
NOTE
The cooked food keeps heat in its core after
cooking is complete. This is why you must respect
the standing time specified in this manual, which
ensures cooking evenly down to the core.

Cookware for microwave
Cookware used for Microwave Mode must allow microwaves to pass through and penetrate
food. Metals such as stainless steel, aluminum and copper reflect microwaves. Therefore, do
not use cookware made of metallic materials. Cookware marked microwave - safe is always
safe for use. For additional information on appropriate cookware refer to the following guide
and place a glass of water or some food on the turntable.
Requirements:
• Flat bottom and straight sides
• Tight-fitting lid
• Well-balanced pan with handles that weigh less than the main pan

Reheating
• Do not reheat large-sized foods such as joints of meat, which easily overcook.
• It is safer to reheat foods at lower power levels.
• Stir well or turn over during and after cooking.
• Use caution for liquids or baby foods. Stir well before, during, and after cooking with a
plastic spoon or glass stirring stick to prevent eruptive boiling and scalding. Keep them
inside the oven during the standing time. Allow a longer reheating time than other food
types.
• Recommended standing time after reheating is 2-4 minutes. See the table below for
reference.

Convection
In Convection mode, both the heating element and the side-wall fan operate together to
circulate the heat inside the cooking chamber. Use this mode for biscuits, individual scones,
rolls, and cakes as well as fruit cakes, choux, and soufflés. All conventional ovenproof
cookware, baking tins and sheets – anything you would normally use in a traditional
convection oven – can be used.
Microwaves+Convection
This combination mode combines the microwave energy with hot air, resulting in reduced
cooking time and producing a brown, crispy surface of the food. The oven offers 5 different
combination modes for your convenience. Use this for all kinds of meat and poultry as well
as casseroles and gratin dishes, sponge cakes and light fruit cakes, pies and crumbles, roast
vegetables, scones, and breads. Use only ovenproof cookware, such as glasses, potteries, or
bone china without metal trim.
