How a microwave oven works
Checking that your oven is operating
correctly
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy released
enables food to be cooked or reheated without changing either the form or
the colour.
You can use your microwave oven to:
• Defrost
• Instant Reheat/Cook
• Cook
Cooking Principle.
S
The following simple procedure enables you to check that your oven is
working correctly at all times. Open the oven door by pushing the large
button in the bottom right-hand corner of the control panel.
First, place a bowl of water on the turntable. Then, close the door.
1. Press the Power Level ( ) button and set the time
to 4-5 minutes by pressing the 1 min button the
appropriate number of times.
1. The microwaves generated by the magnetron are
distributed uniformly as the food rotates on the
turntable. The food is thus cooked evenly.
2. Press the Start (
Result :
2. The microwaves are absorbed by the food up to
a depth of about 1 inch (2.5 cm). Cooking then
continues as the heat is dissipated within the food.
) button.
The oven heats the water for 4 to 5
minutes. The water should then be
boiling.
The oven must be plugged into an appropriate wall socket. The
turntable must be in position in the oven. If a power level other than the
maximum is used, the water takes longer to boil.
3. Cooking times vary according to the recipient used
and the properties of the food:
• Quantity and density
• Water content
• Initial temperature (refrigerated or not)
1
Setting the energy save mode
The oven has an energy save mode. This facility saves electricity when the
oven is not in use.
• Press the Energy Save ( ) button.
• To remove energy save mode, open the door and
then display shows current time. The oven is ready
for use.
As the centre of the food is cooked by heat dissipation, cooking
continues even when you have taken the food out of the oven.
Standing times specified in recipes and in this booklet must therefore
be respected to ensure:
• Even cooking of the food right to the centre
• The same temperature throughout the food

MICROWAVES
Food
COOKING
Cookware for microwave cooking:
Cookware must allow microwave energy to pass through it for maximum
efficiency. Microwaves are reflected by metal, such as stainless steel,
aluminium and copper, but they can penetrate through ceramic, glass,
porcelain and plastic as well as paper and wood. So food must never be
cooked in metal containers.
Food suitable for microwave cooking:
Many kinds of food are suitable for microwave cooking, including fresh or
frozen vegetables, fruit, pasta, rice, grains, beans, fish, and meat. Sauces,
custard, soups, steamed puddings, preserves, and chutneys can also be
cooked in a microwave oven. Generally speaking, microwave cooking is
ideal for any food that would normally be prepared on a hob. Melting butter
or chocolate, for example (see the chapter with tips, techniques and hints).
Covering during cooking
To cover the food during cooking is very important, as the evaporated water
rises as steam and contributes to cooking process. Food can be covered in
different ways: e.g. with a ceramic plate, plastic cover or microwave suitable
cling film.

ENGLISH
Microwave energy actually penetrates food, attracted and absorbed by its
water, fat and sugar content.
The microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move rapidly. The rapid
movement of these molecules creates friction and the resulting heat cooks
the food.
Add 15 ml
(1 tbsp.) cold
water.
Standing times
After cooking is over food the standing time is important to allow the
temperature to even out within the food.

REHEATING
Instructions
Your microwave oven will reheat food in a fraction of the time that
conventional ovens hobs normally take.
Use the power levels and reheating times in the following chart as a guide.
The times in the chart consider liquids with a room temperature of about
+18 to +20 °C or a chilled food with a temperature of about +5 to +7 °C.
Prepare small whole
or sliced mushrooms.
Do not add any water.
Sprinkle with lemon
juice. Spice with salt and
pepper. Drain before
serving.
Cut onions into slices or
halves. Add only 15 ml (1
tbsp.) water.
Cut pepper into small
slices.
Weigh the peeled
potatoes and cut them
into similar sized halves
or quarters.
Cut turnip cabbage into
small cubes.
Arranging and covering
Avoid reheating large items such as joint of meat - they tend to overcook
and dry out before the centre is piping hot. Reheating small pieces will be
more successful.
ENGLISH

Standing
time (min.)

Power levels and stirring
Some foods can be reheated using 750 W power while others should be
reheated using 600 W, 450 W or even 300 W.
Check the tables for guidance. In general, it is better to reheat food using a
lower power level, if the food is delicate, in large quantities, or if it is likely to
heat up very quickly (mince pies, for example).
Stir well or turn food over during reheating for best results. When possible,
stir again before serving.
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby foods. To prevent
eruptive boiling of liquids and possible scalding, stir before, during and
after heating. Keep them in the microwave oven during standing time. We
recommend putting a plastic spoon or glass stick into the liquids. Avoid
overheating (and therefore spoiling) the food.
It is preferable to underestimate cooking time and add extra heating time, if
necessary.
Heating and standing times
When reheating food for the first time, it is helpful to make a note of the time
taken - for future reference.
Always make sure that the reheated food is piping hot throughout.
Allow food to stand for a short time after reheating - to let the temperature
even out.
The recommended standing time after reheating is 2-4 minutes, unless
another time is recommended in the chart.
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby food. See also the
chapter with the safety precautions.

REHEATING LIQUIDS
Reheating liquids and food
Always allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has been
switched off to allow the 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.
Use the power levels and times in this table as a guide lines for reheating.
Food
REHEATING BABY FOOD
BABY FOOD: Empty into a deep ceramic plate. Cover with plastic lid. Stir
well after reheating! Let stand for 2-3 minutes before serving. Stir again
and check the temperature. Recommended serving temperature: between
30-40 °C.
BABY MILK: Pour milk into a sterilised glass bottle. Reheat uncovered.
Never heat a baby’s bottle with teat on, as the bottle may explode if
overheated. Shake well before standing time and again before serving !
Always carefully check the temperature of baby milk or food before giving it
to the baby. Recommended serving temperature: ca. 37 °C.
REMARK: Baby food particularly needs to be checked carefully before
serving to prevent burns.
Use the power levels and times in the next table as a guide lines for
reheating.

DEFROSTING
All frozen food should be defrosted using defrosting power level (180 W).
Microwaves are an excellent way of defrosting frozen food. Microwaves
gently defrost frozen food in a short period of time. This can be of great
advantage, if unexpected guests suddenly show up.
Food
Frozen poultry must be thoroughly thawed before cooking. Remove any
metal ties and take it out of any wrapping to allow thawed liquid to drain
away.

Turn over after half of
defrosting time!
Poultry
Check the food occasionally to make sure that it does not feel warm.
If smaller and thinner parts of the frozen food start to warm up, they can be
shield by wrapping very small strips of aluminium foil around them during
defrosting.
Should poultry start to warm up on the outer surface, stop thawing and
allow it to stand for 20 minutes before continuing.
Leave the fish, meat and poultry to stand in order to complete defrosting.
The standing time for complete defrosting will vary depending on the
quantity defrosted. Please refer to the table below.
Hint :

Fish
Fish fillets
Flat food defrosts better than thick and smaller quantities
need less time than bigger ones. Remember this hint while
freezing and defrosting food.
For defrosting of frozen food with a temperature of about -18 to -20 °C, use
the following table as a guide.

MICROWAVE + GRILL
The grill-heating elements are located underneath the ceiling of the cavity.
They operates while the door is closed and the turntable is rotating. The
turntable’s rotation makes the food brown more evenly. Preheating the grill
for 2-3 minutes will make the food brown more quickly.
This cooking mode combines the radiant heat that is coming from the grill
with the speed of microwave cooking. It operates only while the door is
closed and the turntable is rotating. Due to the rotation of the turntable, the
food browns evenly.
Three combination modes are available with this model:
600 W + Grill, 450 W + Grill and 300 W + Grill.
Cookware for grilling:
Should be flameproof and may include metal. Do not use any type of plastic
cookware, as it can melt.
Cookware for cooking with microwave + grill
Please use cookware that microwaves can pass through. Cookware should
be flameproof. Do not use metal cookware with combination mode. Do not
use any type of plastic cookware, as it can melt.
Food suitable for grilling:
Chops, sausages, steaks, hamburgers, bacon and gammon rashers, thin
fish portions, sandwiches and all kinds of toast with toppings.
ENGLISH
GRILL
Food suitable for microwave + grill cooking:
Food suitable for combination mode cooking include all kinds of cooked
food which need reheating and browning (e.g. baked pasta), as well as
foods which require a short cooking time to brown the top of the food. Also,
this mode can be used for thick food portions that benefit from a browned
and crispy top (e.g. chicken pieces, turning them over half way through
cooking). Please refer to the grill table for further details.
Important remark:
Whenever the grill only mode is used, make sure that the grill-heating
element is under the ceiling in the horizontal position and not on the backwall in the vertical position. Please remember that food must be placed on
the high rack, unless another instruction is recommended.
Important remark:
Whenever the combination mode (microwave + grill) is used, make sure that
the grill heating element is under the ceiling in the horizontal position and
not on the back-wall in the vertical position. The food should be placed on
the high rack, unless another instruction is recommended. Otherwise it has
to be placed directly on the turntable. Please refer to the instructions in the
following chart.
The food must be turned over, if it is to be browned on both sides.
