INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
..
•
'
...About Your Oven
Your oven comes with an operation manual and an Overthe-Range Convection Microwave Cookbook. Read them
carefully and always save for reference.
The fan will automatically start when heat rises from range
surface units or burners and when convection, high mix, low
mix or the broil settings are used.
Should you desire a cookbook for microwave only cooking
principles, techniques, hints and recipes, see the order form
on page 28 for ordering the Ultimate Accessory, the SHARP
CAROUSEL MICROWAVE COOKBOOK.
Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking. Room
humidity and the moisture in food will influence the amount
of moisture that condenses in the oven. Generally, covered
foods will not cause as much condensation as uncovered
ones. Ventilation openings must not be blocked.
NEVER use the oven without the turntable and support nor
turn the turntable over so that a large dish could be placed
in the oven. The turntable will turn both clockwise and counterclockwise. See page 10 for turntable on/off instructions.
The oven is for food preparation only. It should not be used
to dry clothes or newspapers.
The R-1850A, R-1851A and R-1852A are rated at 850 watts
using the IEC-705-1988 method. In using recipes or package directions, check food a minute or two before the minimum time and add time accordingly.
ALWAYS have food in the oven when it is on to absorb the
microwave energy.
When using the oven at power levels below 100%, you may
hear the magnetron cycling on and off .
...About Food
FOOD
DON'T
DO
Eggs,fruits,
vegetables &
sausages
• Puncture egg yolks before cooking to
prevent "explosion".
• Pierce skins of potatoes, apples, squash,
hot dogs and sausages so that steam
escapes.
• Cook eggs in shells.
• Reheat whole eggs.
Popcorn
• Use specially bagged popcorn for the
microwave oven.
• Listen while popping corn for the popping
to slow to 1 or 2 seconds or use
POPCORN pad.
*
• Transfer baby food to small dish and
heat carefully, stirring often. Check
temperature before serving.
• Put nipples on bottles after heating and
shake thoroughly. "Wrist" test before
feeding.
• Heat baby food in original jars.
Baby food
General
• Cut baked goods with filling after heating
to release steam and avoid burns.
• Stir liquid briskly before and after heating
to avoid "eruption".
• Use deep bowl, when cooking liquid or
cereal, to prevent boilovers.
5
*
Pop popcorn in regular brown bags or glass
bowls.
Exceed maximum time on popcorn
package.
• Heat disposable bottles.
• Heat bottles with nipples on.
• Heat or cook in closed glass jars or airtight
containers.
* Can in the microwave as harmful bacteria
may not be destroyed.
• Deep fat fry.
• Dry wood, gourds, herbs or wet papers.
...About Microwave Cooking
- Turn foods over once during microwaving to speed
cooking of such foods as chicken and hamburgers. Large
items like roasts must be turned over at least once.
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas toward outside
of dish.
• Watch cooking time closely. Cook for the shortest amount
of time indicated and add more as needed. Food severely
overcooked can smoke or ignite.
, Rearrange foods like meatballs halfway through cooking
both from top to bottom and from the center of the dish tc
the outside.
· Cover foods while cooking. Check recipe or cookbook for
suggestions: paper towels, wax paper, microwave plastic
wrap or a lid. Covers prevent spattering and help foods to
cook eve nIy.
*
*
• Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum toil any thin areas
of meat or poultry to prevent overcooking before dense,
thick areas are cooked thoroughly.
Add standing time. Remove food from oven and stir, if
possible. Cover for standing time which allows the food to
finish cooking without overcooking.
Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating that cooking
temperatures have been reached. Donenesssigns include:
* Food steams throughout,
not just at edge .
.. Center bottom of dish is very hot to the touch.
, Poultry thigh joints move easily.
• Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
, Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork .
• Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or twice
during cooking, if possible.
...About Safety
, Check foods to see that they are cooked to the United
States Department
of Agriculture's
recommended
temperatures.

, ALWAYS use potholders to prevent burns when handling
utensils that are in contact with hot food. Enough heat
from the food can transfer through utensils to cause skin
burns .
.. Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from the face
and hands. Slowly lift the farthest edge of a dish's covering
and carefully open popcorn and oven cooking bags away
from the face.
*
Stay near the oven while it's in use and check cooking
progress frequently so that there is no chance of
overcooking food.
'NEVER use the cavity for storing cookbooks or other
items.
, Select, store and handle food carefully to preserve its high
quality and minimize the spread of foodborne bacteria.
.. Keep wave guide cover clean. Food residue can cause
arcing and/or fires .
...About Children and the
Microwave
• Children below the age of 7 should use the
microwave with a supervising person very near to
them. Between the ages of 7 and 12, the supervising
person should be in the same room.
, Children should be taught all safety precautions: use
potholders, remove coverings carefully, pay special
attention to packages that crisp food because they
may be extra hot.
, The child must be able to reach the oven comfortably;
if not, he/she should stand on a sturdy stool.
.. Don't assume that because a child has mastered one
cooking skill he/she can cook everything.
.. At no time should anyone be allowed to lean on or
swing on the oven door.
.. Children need to learn that the microwave oven is not
a toy.

MANUAL OPERATION
BEFORE OPERATING
Turntable On / Off
Before operating your new microwave oven make sure

If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on the

You can defrost

defrosting time and press 3 for 30% when you select the power

Selecting Foods:
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food, the rule of
thumb is approximately
5 minutes per pound.
For example,
1. The sensor works with foods at normal storage temper-
defrost 5 minutes for 2-3 cups of casserole or 1 pound otfrozen
spaghetti sauce.
Always stop the oven periodically
to remove or separate
