Oven use
How a microwave oven works
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
•Reheat
•Cook
Cooking principle.
1.The microwaves generated by the
magnetron reflected at cavity and are
distributed uniformly as the food rotates
on the turntable. The food is thus cooked
evenly.
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.
Oven use
3.Cooking times vary according to the
container used and the properties of the
food:
•Quantity and density
•Water content
•Initial temperature (refrigerated or not)
IMPORTANT
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.

Choosing the accessories
Traditional convection cooking does require
cookware. You should, however, use only
cookware that you would use in your
normal oven.
Microwave-safe containers are not usually
suitable for convection cooking; don’t
use plastic containers, dishes, paper cups,
towels, etc.
If you wish to select a combined cooking
mode (microwave and grill or convection),
use only recipients that are microwave-safe
and oven-proof.
IMPORTANT
For further details on suitable cookware and
utensils, refer to the Cookware Guide on
page 50-51.
Oven use
Combining microwaves and grill
You can also combine microwave cooking with the grill, to cook quickly and brown at the
same time.
IMPORTANT
ALWAYS use microwave-safe and ovenproof cookware. Glass or ceramic dishes
are ideal as they allow the microwaves to
penetrate the food evenly.
IMPORTANT
ALWAYS use oven gloves when touching the
recipients in the oven, as they will be very
hot.
You can improve cooking and grilling, if you
use the high rack.

Oven use
Combining microwaves and convection
Combination cooking uses both microwave energy and convection heating. No preheating is
required as the microwave energy is immediately available.
Many foods can be cooked in combination mode, particularly:
•Roast meats and poultry
•Pies and cakes
•Egg and cheese dishes
IMPORTANT
IMPORTANT
ALWAYS use microwave-safe and ovenproof cookware. Glass or ceramic dishes
are ideal as they allow the microwaves to
penetrate the food evenly.
ALWAYS use oven gloves when touching
the recipients in the oven, as they will be
very hot. You can get better cooking and
browning, if you use the low rack.
Open the door. Place the food on the
turntable or on the low rack which should
then be placed on the turntable. Close the
door. The heating element must be in the
horizontal position.

Cookware guide
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 when choosing the cookware. If the cookware is marked
microwave-safe, you do not need to worry.
The following table lists various types of cookware and indicates whether and how they
should be used in a microwave oven.

Cooking guide
Microwaves
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.
Cooking
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.
Standing times
After cooking is over food the standing time
is important to allow the temperature to
even out within the food.
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:
Cooking guide
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).

Reheating
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.
Arranging and covering
Cooking guide
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.
Power levels and stirring
Some foods can be reheated using 900 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
Reheating baby food
When reheating food for the first time, it is
helpful to make a note of the time taken for future reference.
Baby food:
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
MC32J7035AK_EF_DE68-04334A_EN.indd 57
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.
Cooking guide
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.
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.

Defrosting
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.
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.
Put the frozen food on a dish without cover.
Turn over half way, drain off any liquid and
remove any giblets as soon as possible.
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:
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.

Grill
Microwave + Grill
The grill-heating element is located
underneath the ceiling of the cavity. It
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 3-5 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.
Food suitable for grilling:
Chops, sausages, steaks, hamburgers, bacon
and gammon rashers, thin fish portions,
sandwiches and all kinds of toast with
toppings.
Important remark:
Whenever the grill only mode is used,
please remember that food must be placed
on the high rack, unless another instruction
is recommended.
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 microwave + grill cooking:
Cooking guide
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 combination mode
(microwave + grill) is used, the food should
be placed on the high rack, unless another
instruction is recommended. Please refer to
the instructions in the following chart.
The food must be turned over, if it is to be
browned on both sides.

and well known method of cooking food in a
traditional oven with hot air.
The heating element and the fan position
is at the back-wall, so that the hot air is
circulating. This mode is supported by the
top heating element.
This mode combines the microwave energy
with the hot air and is therefore reducing
the cooking time while giving the food a
brown and crispy surface.
Cooking with convection is the traditional
and well known method of cooking food in
an oven with hot air circulated by a fan on
the back-wall.

Should be able to let the microwaves pass
through. Should be ovenproof (like glass,
pottery or china without metal trims);
similar to the cookware described under
Microwave + Grill.
Food suitable for microwave + convection
cooking:
All kinds of meats and poultry as well as
casseroles and gratin dishes, sponge cakes
and light fruit cakes, pies and crumbles,
