IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (Microwave Oven)
READ CAREFULLY AND KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE
WARNING : To prevent fire, burns, electric shock and other warnings:
Listed below are, as with all appliances, certain rules to follow and safeguards to assure high
performance from this oven:
11. Do not use the oven for any reason other than
food preparation, such as for drying clothes,
paper, or any other nonfood items or for
sterilizing purposes.
12. Do not use the oven when empty, this could
damage the oven.
13. Do not use the oven cavity for any type of
storage, such as papers, cookbook, cookware,
etc.
14. Do not operate the oven without the glass tray
in place. Be sure it is properly sitting on the
rotating base.
15. Make sure you remove caps or lids prior to
cooking when you cook food sealed in bottles.
16. Do not put foreign material between the oven
surface and door. It could result in excessive
leakage of microwave energy.
17. Do not use recycled paper products for cooking.
They may contain impurities which could cause
sparks and/or fires when used during cooking.
18. Do not pop popcorn unless popped in a
microwave approved popcorn popper or unless
it's commercially packaged and recommended
especially for microwave ovens. Microwave
popped corn produces a lower yield than
conventional popping; there will be a number of
unpopped kernels. Do not use oil unless
specified by the manufacturer.
19. Do not cook any food surrounded by a
membrane, such as egg yolks, potatoes,
chicken livers, etc., without first piercing them
several times with a fork.
10. Do not pop popcorn longer than the
manufacturer's directions. (popping time is
generally below 3 minutes). Longer cooking
does not yield more popped corn, it can cause
scorchings and fire.
Also, the cooking tray can become too hot to
handle or may break.
11. If smoke is observed, switch off or unplug the
appliance and keep the door closed in order to
stifle any flames.
12. When heating food in plastic or paper
containers, keep an eye on the oven due to the
possibility of ignition.
13. The contents of feeding bottles and baby food
jars shall be stirred or shaken and the
temperature checked before consumption, in
order to avoid burns.
14. Always test the temperature of food or drink
which has been heated in a microwave oven
before you give it to somebody, especially to
children or elderly people. This is important
because things which have been heated in a
microwave oven carry on getting hotter even
though the microwave oven cooking has
stopped.
15. Eggs in their shell and whole hard-boiled eggs
should not be heated in microwave ovens since
they may explode, even after microwave heating
has ended;
16. Keep the waveguide cover clean at all times.
Wipe the oven interior with a soft damp cloth
after each use. If you leave grease or fat
anywhere in the cavity it may overheat, smoke
or even catch fire when next using the oven.
17. Never heat oil or fat for deep frying as you
cannot control the temperature and doing so
may lead to overheating and fire.
18. Liquids, such as water, coffee, or tea are able to
be overheated beyond the boiling point without
appearing to be boiling due to surface tension of
the liquid. Visible bubbling or boiling when the
container is removed from the microwave oven
is not always present. THIS COULD RESULT
IN VERY HOT LIQUIDS SUDDENLY BOILING
OVER WHEN A SPOON OR OTHER UTENSIL
IS INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
a) Do not overheat the liquid.
b) Stir the liquid both before and halfway through
heating it
c) Do not use straight-sided containers with
narrow necks.
d) After heating, allow the container to stand in
the microwave oven for a short time before
removing the container.
e) Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or
other utensil into the container.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (PIZZA OVEN)
WARNING:
1. Use extreme caution when removing pizza tray or disposing of hot grease.
2. Do not clean the oven with metal scouring pads. Pieces can break off the pad and touch electrical
parts, creating a risk of electric shock.
3. Oversize foods or metal utensils must not be inserted in a pizza oven as they may create a fire or
risk of electric shock.
4. A fire may occur if the pizza oven is covered or touching flammable material, including curtains,
draperies, walls, and the like, when in operation. Do not store any item on top of the appliance
when in operation.
5. Do not place any of the following materials in the oven: paper, cardboard, plastic, and other
flammable materials.
6. Do not cover pizza tray or any part of the oven with metal foil. This will cause overheating of the
oven.
7. Do not cook hamburg patty, stake, frozen meat, and so on. Cooking these foods may lead to oil
flouding or hot smoking.
Prior to use
In order to protect your oven during transportation and storage, the pizza oven heaters are
covered with a protective coating. To remove this coating the pizza oven heaters must be
heated for about 5 minutes.
This procedure will produce some odors as the protective coating on the heaters disappears.

be cleaned regularly to avoid excessive noise.
Simply wipe the bottom surface of the oven
with mild detergent water or window cleaner
and dry. The roller guide may be washed in
mild sudsy water.
Keep the inside of the oven clean. When food
spatters or spilled liquids adhere to oven
walls, wipe with a damp cloth. Mild detergent
may be used if the oven gets very dirty. The
use of harsh detergent or abrasives is not
recommended.
If steam accumulates inside or around the
outside of the oven door, wipe with a soft
cloth. This may occur when the microwave

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
* Q : I accidentally ran my microwave oven
without any food in it. Is it damaged?
* A : Running the oven empty for a short time will not
damage the oven. However, it is not
recommended.
* Q : Why does my oven not always cook as fast
as the microwave cooking guide says?
* A : Check your cooking guide again, to make sure
you’ve followed directions exactly ; and to see
what might cause variations in cooking time.
Cooking guide times and heat settings are
suggestions, to help prevent over-cooking... the
most common problem in getting used to a
microwave oven.
Variations in the size, shape and weights and
dimensions could require longer cooking time.
Use your own judgement along with the cooking
guide suggestions to check whether the food
has been properly cooked just as you would do
with a conventional cooker.
* Q : Can the oven be used with the glass tray or
roller guide removed?
* A : No. Both the glass tray and roller guide must
always be used in the oven before cooking.
* Q : Can I open the door when the oven is
operating?
* A : The door can be opened anytime during the
cooking operation. Then microwave energy will
be instantly switched off and the time setting will
maintain until the door is closed.
* Q : Will the microwave oven be damaged if it
operates while empty?
* A : Yes. Never run it empty.
* Q : Why do I have moisture in my microwave
oven after cooking?
* A : The moisture on the side of your microwave
oven is normal. It is caused by steam from
cooking food hitting the cool oven surface.
* Q : Can I operate my microwave oven without
the turntable or turn the turntable over to
hold a large dish?
* A : No. If you remove or turn over the turntable, you
will get poor cooking results. Dishes used in
your oven must fit on the turntable.
* Q : Does microwave energy pass through the
viewing screen in the door?
* A : No. The metal screen bounces back the energy
to the oven cavity. The holes are made to allow
light to pass through. They do not let microwave
energy pass through.
* Q : Is it normal for the turntable to turn in either
direction?
* A : Yes. The turntable rotates clockwise or
counterclockwise, depending on the rotation of
the motor when the cooking cycle begins.
* Q : Why do eggs sometimes pop?
* A : When baking or poaching eggs, the yolk may
pop due to steam build-up inside the yolk
membrane. To prevent this, simply pierce the
yolk with a toothpick before cooking. Never cook
eggs without piercing their shells.
* Q : Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven?
How do I get the best results?
* A : Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn
following manufacture’s guidelines. Do not use
regular paper bags. Use the “listening test” by
stopping the oven as soon as the popping slows
to a “pop” every 1 or 2 seconds. Do not repop
unpopped kernels. Do not pop popcorn in glass
cookware.
* Q : Why this standing time recommended after
the cooking operation has been completed?
* A : Standing time is very important.
With microwave cooking, the heat is in the food,
not in the oven. Many foods build up enough
internal heat to allow the cooking process to
continue, even after the food is removed from
the oven. Standing time for joints of meat, large
vegetables and cakes is to allow the inside to
cook completely, without overcooking the
outside.
* Q : Why does the pizza oven not start even if I
touch the start key?
Why does the pizza oven stop during
operation?
* A : Check the pizza tray firmly closed and try again.
* Q : What does “standing time” mean?
* A : “Standing time” means that food should be
removed from the oven and covered for
additional time to allow it to finish cooking.
This frees the oven for other cooking.

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS
Utensil Guide
Only use utensils that are suitable for use in microwave ovens.
To cook food in the microwave oven, the microwaves must be able to penetrate the food, without
being reflected or absorbed by the dish used. Care must therefore be taken choosing the utensil. If the
utensil is marked microwave-safe, you do not need to worry. The following table lists various of utensil
and indicates whether and how they should be used in a microwave oven.

USE YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN SAFELY
General Use
Do not attempt to defeat or tamper with safety
interlocks.
Do not place any object between the oven front frame
and the door or allow residue to build up on sealing
surfaces. Wipe with a mild detergent, rinse and dry.
Never use abrasive powders or pads.
Do not subject the oven door to strain or weight such
as a child hanging on an open door.
This could cause the oven to fall forward resulting in
injury to you and damage to the oven.
Do not operate the oven if door seals or sealing
surfaces are damaged; or if door is bent; or if hinges
are loose or broken.
Do not operate the oven empty. This will damage the
oven.
Do not attempt to dry clothes, newspapers or other
materials in the oven. They may catch on fire.
Do not use recycled paper products as they may
contain impurities which may cause sparks or fires.
Do not hit or strike the control panel with hard objects.
This can damage the oven.
Food
temperature to even out, stir during heating, if
necessary, and ALWAYS stir after heating. To prevent
eruptive boiling and possible scalding, you should put
a spoon or glass stick into the beverages and stir
before, during and after heating.
Do not leave the oven unattended while popping corn.
Do not pop corn in a paper bag unless it is the
commercially prepared Microwave Popcorn product.
The kernels can overheat and ignite a brown paper
bag.
Do not put packaged Microwave Popcorn bags
directly on the oven tray. Place the package on a
microwave safe glass or ceramic plate to avoid
overheating and cracking the oven tray.
Do not exceed the Microwave Popcorn manufacturers
suggested popping time.
Longer popping does not yield more popcorn but it
can result in scorch, burn of fire. Remember, the
Popcorn bag and tray can be too hot to handle.
Remove with caution and use pot holders.
Never use your microwave oven for home canning.
The oven is not designed for proper home canning.
Improperly canned food may spoil and be dangerous
to consume.
Always use the minimum recipe cooking time. It is
better to undercook rather than overcook foods.
Undercooked foods can be returned to the oven for
more cooking. If food is overcooked, nothing can be
done.
Heat small quantities of food or foods with low
moisture carefully. These can quickly dry out, burn or
catch on fire.
Do not heat eggs in the shell. Pressure may build up
and eggs can explode.
Potatoes, apples, egg yolks and sausages are
examples of food with non-porous skins.
These must be pierced before cooking to prevent
bursting.
Do not attempt to deep fat fry in your microwave oven.
Always allow a starding time of at least 20 seconds
after the oven has been switched off to allao the
ARCING
If you see arcing, touch STOP/CLEAR pad for microwave oven and correct the problem.
Arcing is the microwave term for sparks in the
oven.
Arcing is caused by:
• Metal or foil touching the side of the oven.
• Foil not molded to food (upturned edges act like
antennas).
• Metal, such as twist-ties, poultry pins, or gold
rimmed dishes, in the microwave.
• Recycled paper towels containing small metal
pieces being used in the microwave.

MICROWAVING PRINCIPLES
Microwave energy has been used in this country to cook and reheat food since early experiments with
RADAR in World War ll. Microwaves are present in the atmosphere all the time, both naturally and manmade
sources. Manmade sources include radar, radio, television, telecommunication links and car phones.
HOW MICROWAVES COOK FOOD
▲
The microwaves bounce
off the metal walls and
the metal door screen.
▲
▲
In a microwave oven,
electricity is converted
into microwave by the
MAGNETRON.
TRANSMISSION
Then they pass through
the cooking containers to
be absorbed by the water
molecules in the food, all
foods contain water to a
more or lesser extent.
REFLECTION
ABSORPTION
The microwaves cause the water molecules to
vibrate which causes FRICTION, i.e. HEAT. This
heat then cooks the food. Microwaves are also
attracted to fat and sugar particles, and foods high
in these will cook more quickly. Microwaves can
only penetrate to a depth of 11/2 - 2 inches(4-5cm)
and as heat spreads through the food by
conduction, just as in a traditional oven, the food
cooks from the outside inwards.

COOKING TECHNIQUES
STANDING TIME
STARTING TEMPERATURE
Dense foods e.g. meat, jacket potatoes and
cakes, require standing time(inside or outside of
the oven) after cooking, to allow heat to finish
conducting to cook the center completely. Wrap
meat joints and jacket potatoes in aluminium foil
while standing. Meat joints need approx. 10-15
minutes, jacket potatoes 5 minutes. Other foods
such as plated meal, vegetables, fish etc require
2-5 minutes standing. After defrosting food,
standing time should also be allowed. If food is
not cooked after standing time, return to the oven
and cook for additional time.
The colder the food, the longer it takes to heat up.
Food from a fridge takes longer to reheat than
food at room temperature.
LIQUIDS
All liquids must be stirred before and during
heating. Water especially must be stirred before
and during heating, to avoid eruption. Do not heat
liquids that have previously been boiled. DO NOT
OVERHEAT.
TURNING & STIRRING
MOISTURE CONTENT
Some foods require stirring during cooking. Meat
and poultry should be turned after half the
cooking time.
Many fresh foods e.g. vegetables and fruit, vary
in their moisture content throughout the season,
particularly jacket potatoes. For this reason
cooking times may have to be adjusted. Dry
ingredients e.g. rice, pasta, can dry out during
storage so cooking times may differ.
ARRANGING
Individual foods e.g. chicken portions or chops,
should be placed on a dish so that the thicker
parts are towards the outside.
DENSITY
Porous airy foods heat more quickly than dense
heavy foods.
QUANTITY
Small quantities cook faster than large quantities,
also small meals will reheat more quickly than
large portions.
CLING FILM
Cling film helps keep the food moist and the
trapped steam assists in speeding up cooking
times. Pierce before cooking to allow excess
steam to escape. Always take care when
removing cling film from a dish as the build-up of
steam will be very hot.
PIERCING
The skin or membrane on some foods will cause
steam to build up during cooking. These foods
must be pierced or a strip of skin should be
peeled off before cooking to allow the steam to
escape. Eggs, potatoes, apples, sausages etc,
will all need to be pierced before cooking. DO
NOT ATTEMPT TO BOIL EGGS IN THEIR
SHELLS.
SHAPE
Even shapes cook evenly. Food cooks better by
microwave when in a round container rather than
square.
COVERING
SPACING
Cover foods with microwave cling film or a lid.
Cover fish, vegetables, casseroles, soups. Do not
cover cakes, sauces, jacket potatoes or pastry
items.
Foods cook more quickly and evenly if spaced
apart. NEVER pile foods on top of each other.

DEFROSTING GUIDE
▶ When defrosted, food should be cool, but softened in
all areas. If still slightly icy, return to microwave oven
very briefly, or let stand a few minutes. After
defrosting, allow food to stand 5-60 minutes if there
are any icy areas.
Poultry and fish may be placed under running cool
water until defrosted
➪ Turn over : Roast, ribs, whole poultry, turkey breasts,
hot dogs, sausages, steaks, or chops.
➪ Rearrange : Break apart or separate steaks, chops,
hamburger patties, ground meat, chicken or seafood
pieces, chunks of meat such as stew beef.
➪ Shield : Use small strips of aluminum foil to protect
thin areas or edges of unevenly shaped foods such as
chicken wings. To prevent arching, do not allow foil to
come within 1-inch of oven walls or door.
➪ Remove : To prevent cooking, thawed portions should
be removed from the oven at this point. This may
shorten defrost time for food weighing less than 3
lbs.(1350g).
▶ Do not defrost covered meat. Covering might allow
cooking to take place. Always remove outer wrap and
tray. Use only containers that are microwave-safe.
▶ Begin defrosting whole poultry breast-side-down.
Begin defrosting roasts fat-side-down.
▶ The shape of the package alters the defrosting time.
Shallow rectangular shapes defrost more quickly than
a deep block.
▶ After 1/3 of the defrost time has elapsed, check the
food. Toy may wish to turn over, break apart,
rearrange or remove thawed portions of the food.
▶ During defrost, the oven will prompt you to turn the
over. At this point, open oven door and check the
food. Follow the techniques listed below for optimum
defrost results.
Then, close oven door, touch the START pad to
complete defrosting.
