or steam.
Do not operate the microwave oven when it is
empty. The microwave oven will automatically
shut down for 30 minutes for safety purposes. We
recommend placing a glass of water inside the oven
at all times to absorb microwave energy in case the
microwave oven is started accidentally.
CAUTION

clothes.
Use shorter times for smaller amounts of food to
prevent overheating and burning food.
Do not immerse the power cable or power plug in
water and keep the power cable away from heat.

should not be heated in microwave ovens since they
may explode, even after microwave heating has
ended; Also do not heat airtight or vacuum-sealed
bottles, jars, containers, nuts inshells, tomatoes etc.
Do not cover the ventilation slots with cloth or paper.
They may catch fire as hot air escapes from the
oven. The oven may also overheat and switch itself
off automatically, and will remain off until it cools
sufficiently.
Always use oven mitts when removing a dish from
the oven to avoid unintentional burns.
Stir liquids halfway during heating or after heating
ends and allow the liquid stand at least 20 seconds
after heating to prevent eruptive boiling.
Install the oven in compliance with the clearances stated
in this manual. (See installing your microwave oven.)
Take care when connecting other electrical
appliances to sockets near the oven.
PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE
MICROWAVE ENERGY. (MICROWAVE FUNCTION ONLY)

Microwave button again one or more times. (450 W in
the example)
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.
Porcelain, pottery, glazed earthenware
and bone china are usually suitable, unless
decorated with a metal trim.
Some frozen foods are packaged in these
dishes.
✗
Can be used to warm food. Overheating may
cause the polystyrene to melt.
May catch fire.
✗
May cause arcing.
