•
•
Utensils should be checked to ensure they are
suitable for use in Microwave Ovens.
Place the cookware in the microwave along with a
glass half full of water. Heat on 750W (P10) for
one minute. If the cookware feels hot, you should
not use it. If it is just slightly warm, you can use it
for reheating but not for cooking. If the dish is
room temperature, it is suitable for microwave
cooking.
Paper napkins, wax paper, paper towels, plates,
cups, cartons, freezer wrap and cardboard are
great convenience utensils. Always be sure
containers are filled with food to absorb energy
and thus avoid the possibility of overheating or
ignition.
Many plastic dishes, cups, freezer containers and
plastic wraps may be used in the microwave
oven. Follow manufacturer’s instructions when
using plastics in the oven. Avoid using plastic
utensils with foods that have high fat or sugar
content since these foods reach high
temperatures and could melt some plastics.
Do not leave oven unattended, and look at it from
time to time when heating or cooking food in
plastic, paper or other combustible containers.
Metal utensils and utensils with metallic trim
should not be used in the microwave oven, unless
specifically recommended for microwave use.
Containers with restricted openings, such as
bottles, should not be used for microwave
cooking.
Use caution when removing a lid or cover from a
dish to avoid steam burns.

Do not heat food in a can in the microwave oven.
Always remove the food to a suitable container.
Deep fat frying should not be done in the
microwave oven, because the fat temperature
cannot be controlled, hazardous situations can
result.
Popcorn may be prepared in the microwave oven,
but only in special packages or utensils designed
specifically for this purpose. This cooking
operation should never be unattended.
Pierce foods with non-porous skins or
membranes to prevent steam build-up and
bursting. Apples, potatoes, chicken livers, and
egg yolks are examples of items that should be
pierced.
The contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars
are to be stirred or shaken and the temperature is
to be checked before consumption, in order to
avoid burns.
 WARNING : Liquids or other foods
Shallow foil containers may safely be used to reheat
foods in your microwave oven providing the following
rules are observed:
•
If the microwave oven has been in use for 15
minutes or more, allow it to cool before using it
again.
The container and turntable may become hot
during use, take great care when removing either
from the oven. It is advisable to use an oven cloth
or glove when doing so.
Remember when using an aluminium foil
container that the reheating or cooking times may
be longer than you are used to, always ensure
that the food is piping hot before serving.
must not be heated in sealed containers
since they are liable to explode.
 WARNING : Microwave heating of
Foil containers should not be more than 3 cms
(1 1/4”) deep.
Foil lids must not be used.
The foil containers must be at least two-thirds full
of food. Empty containers must never be used.
Foil containers should be used singly in the
microwave oven and should not be allowed to
touch the sides. If your oven has a metal turntable
or cooking rack, the foil container should be
placed on an upturned oven-proof plate.
Foil containers should never be re-used in the
microwave oven.
beverages can result in delayed eruptive
boiling, therefore care must be taken when
handling the container.
 WARNING : When heating liquids,
e.g. soups, sauces and beverages in your
microwave oven, 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:

•
Avoid using straight-sided containers with narrow
necks.
•
Do not force the turntable to rotate by hand. This
may cause malfunctioning.
•
Do not overheat.
•
•
Stir the liquid before placing the container in the
oven and again halfway through the heating time.
Arcing in the oven during microwave operation
usually occurs from use of metallic utensils.
Continuous arcing, however, can damage the
unit. Stop the programme and check the utensil.
•
After heating, allow to stand in the oven for a
short time, stirring again before carefully removing
the container.
•
Care should be taken not to obstruct any air vents
located on the top, rear, side and bottom of the
oven.
 WARNING : Some products such as m WARNING : Do not use this oven for
commercial purposes. This oven is made
for domestic use only.
whole eggs and sealed containers – for
example, closed glass jars – may explode
and should not be heated in this oven.
Occasionally, poached eggs may explode
during cooking. Always pierce the yolk,
then cover and allow the standing time of
one minute before removing cover.

KEEP THESE INSTRUCTIONS !
It is quite normal for steam to be emitted
around the door, or for misting to occur on the
door, or even for water droplets to appear
below the door during the cooking cycle. This
is merely condensation from the heat of the
food and does not affect the safety of your
oven. The door is not intended to seal
the oven cavity completely.

Microwave Tips
Always keep the oven clean – avoid spillovers
and do not forget to clean under the glass tray
and the inside of the door.
Preferably use round or oval casseroles with a lid
when cooking in your microwave oven.
Do not use metal or metal decorated casseroles.
Certain plastic materials can melt and be warped
by hot food.
Cover the food when cooking. Use a glass lid, a
plate or grease proof paper.
Pastry, bread and the like can be defrosted
directly in a bread basket or on a paper towel.
If frozen food is heated in its packaging, the
packaging should be opened. Packaging
containing metal or metal decoration must not be
used unless specifically recommended for use in
the microwave. Remove metal clips and wire ties.
Smaller pieces of aluminium foil can be used to
cover parts that easily over cook such as chicken
legs.
Food with peel or skin should be pierced with a
fork – e.g. potatoes and sausages. Do not boil
eggs in the microwave oven as they can explode.
Put large, thick pieces close to the edge of the
casserole and try to cut the food in to even sized
pieces. Always place the food in the centre of the
oven.
The food will be evenly cooked if you stir or turn it
a few times.
Always set a shorter cooking time than indicated
in your recipe to avoid over cooking. The larger
the amount of food the longer it takes.
Use little or no water for vegetables.
Use less salt and spices than for ‘normal’ cooking.
Season afterwards.
Allow a few minutes ‘standing’ time after the oven
has switched off to ensure complete and even
cooking results.
Always ensure food is piping hot throughout
before serving.
Use pot holders or gloves when taking dishes and
food from the oven.

Care and cleaning
The oven must always be clean. Residue of food from spillovers or spatters will attract microwave energy
causing it to burn on. This could reduce the efficiency of the oven and may cause bad odours. Do not attempt
to tamper with or make any adjustments or repairs to any part of the oven. Repairs should only be done by a
qualified service technician.
Be sure the oven is disconnected from the electricity supply before cleaning.
Cleaning the accessories (turntable and support)
Clean them with mild detergent after removing them from the cavity. The turntable support should be carefully
handled.
CAUTION: The inside of the oven and turntable get very hot, so do not touch them immediately after use.
Cleaning the interior
Always keep the inside of the oven clean. Wipe up spillovers and food spatters immediately. Deposits that are
allowed to remain on the oven walls, door seal and door surface will absorb microwave energy, reduce the
efficiency of the oven, and possibly damage the oven interior. Use mild, liquid detergent, warm water and a
soft, clean cloth to remove deposits.
NEVER USE ABRASIVE CLEANERS, COMMERCIAL OVEN CLEANERS OR STEEL WOOL PADS ON
ANY PART OF THE MICROWAVE OVEN.
To loosen difficult deposits, boil a cup of water in the microwave oven for 2 or 3 minutes.
NEVER USE A KNIFE OR ANY UTENSIL TO REMOVE DEPOSITS FROM OVEN SURFACES.
To remove odours from the oven interior, boil a cup of water plus 2 tablespoons of lemon juice for 5 minutes.
Cleaning the exterior
Open the oven door when cleaning the control panel. This will prevent the oven from being turned on
accidentally. You should clean outside surfaces of the oven with mild liquid detergent and water followed by a
wiping with clear water to remove any excess detergent. Dry with a soft cloth.
Spray-on window cleaners or all purpose spray-on kitchen cleaners can also be used. Never use abrasive
cleaners, scouring pads or harsh chemicals on outside surfaces of your oven. To prevent damage to the
working parts, do not allow water to seep into ventilation openings.
