WARNING
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS : READ CAREFULLY AND KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
a. Do not overcook food.
b. Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before placing bag in the oven.
c. Do not heat oil or fat for deep frying. The temperature of the oil cannot be controlled.
d. Look at the oven from time to time when food is heated in disposable containers made of plastic,
paper or other combustible materials for signs of smoke or burning.
e. If materials inside the oven should ignite, or smoke is observed, keep oven door closed, turn oven
off, and disconnect the power plug, or shut off power at the fuse or circuit breaker panel.
To reduce the risk of an explosion or delayed eruptive boiling when handling the container.
Your microwave oven is capable of heating food and beverages very quickly therefore, it is very important
that you select the appropriate cooking time and power level for the type and quantity of food to be
heated. If you are unsure of the cooking time and power level required, begin with low cooking times and
power levels until the food is sufficiently heated evenly throughout.
Additionally:
a. Do not place sealed containers in the oven. Babies bottles fitted with a screw cap or teat are
considered to be sealed containers.
b. Do not use excessive amount of time.
c. When boiling liquids in the oven, use a wide-mouthed container.
d. Stand at least for 20 seconds at the end of cooking to avoid delayed eruptive boiling of liquids.
e. Stir the liquid before and during cooking. Use extreme care when handling the container or inserting
a spoon or other utensil into the container.
This oven is for home food preparation only and should only be used for heating, cooking and defrosting
food and beverage.
It is not suitable for commercial, laboratory use, or heating therapeutic devices eg. Wheat bags.
Never operate the oven whilst any object is caught or jammed between the door and the oven.
Do not try to adjust or repair the oven yourself.
It is hazardous for anyone other than a qualified service technician trained by SHARP to carry out any
service or repair operation. Especially those which involve the removal of a cover which gives protection
against exposure to microwave energy are very hazardous.
Do not operate the oven if it is not working correctly or damaged until it has been repaired by a qualified
service technician trained by SHARP. It is particularly important that the oven door closes properly and
that there is no damage to:
(1) Door (warped), (2) Hinges and Latches (broken or loosened), (3) Door Seals, Sealing Surfaces and
oven cavity (buckled or deformed), (4) Burn marks on the door seal faces.
Do not bump, or catch utensils, loose clothes and your accessories on the door safety latches when
removing food from the oven.
Never poke an object, particularly a metal object, through a grille or between the door and the oven while
the oven is operating.
Never tamper with or deactivate the door safety latches.
Always use oven gloves to prevent burns when handling utensils that are in contact with hot food. Enough
heat from the food can transfer through utensils to cause skin burns.
Should the power supply cord become damaged, it must be replaced with a special cord supplied by a
SERVICE CENTRE APPROVED BY SHARP and it must be replaced by a qualified service technician trained
by SHARP in order to avoid a hazard.
If the oven lamp fails please consult your dealer or a qualified service technician trained by SHARP.
Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from the face and hands.
Slowly lift the furthest edge of a dish's cover including microwave plastic wrap etc., and carefully open
popcorn and oven cooking bags away from the face.
Make sure that the power supply cord is undamaged, and that it does not run under the oven or over any
hot surfaces or sharp edges.
To prevent the turntable from breaking:
a. Before cleaning the turntable with water, leave the turntable to cool.
b. Do not place anything hot on a cold turntable.
c. Do not place anything cold on a hot turntable.
Do not place anything on the outer cabinet.
Do not store food or any other items inside the oven.
Make sure the utensil does not touch the interior walls during cooking.
Only allow children to use the oven without supervision when adequate instructions have been given so
that the child is able to use the oven in a safe way and understands the hazards of improper use.
This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

DEFROSTING ADVICE
Defrosting food using your microwave oven is the quickest method of all.
It is a simple proccess but the following instructions are essential to ensure the food is thoroughly defrosted.
Rearrange
Foods that are placed towards the outside of the dish will defrost quicker than foods
in the centre. It is therefore essential that the food is rearranged up to 4 times during
defrosting.
Move closely packed pieces from the outside to the centre and rearrange over-lapping
areas.
This will ensure that all parts of the food defrosts evenly.
Separate
Foods may be stuck together when removed from the freezer. It is important to separate
llets.
Shield
Some areas of food being defrosted may become warm. To prevent them becoming
warmer and starting to cook, these areas can be shielded with small pieces of foil, which
ect microwaves, e.g. legs and wings on a chicken.
Stand
Standing time is necessary to ensure food is thoroughly defrosted. Defrosting is not
complete once the food is removed from the microwave oven. Food must stand, covered,
for a length of time to ensure the centre has completly defrosted.
Turn over
It is essential that all foods are turned over at least 3 - 4 times during defrosting. This is
important to ensure thorough defrosting.
NOTES:
• Remove all packaging and wrapping before defrosting.
• To defrost food, use microwave power levels 30% or 10%.
10
REHEATING ADVICE
For the reheating of foods, follow the advice and guidelines below to ensure food is thoroughly reheated before
serving.
Plated meals
Remove any poultry or meat portions, reheat these separately,
see below.
Place smaller items of food to the centre of the plate, larger and
lm
and reheat on 50%, stir/rearrange halfway through reheating.
NOTE: Ensure the food is thoroughly reheated before serving.
Sliced meat
lm and reheat on 50%.
Rearrange at least once to ensure even reheating.
NOTE: Ensure the meat is thoroughly reheated before serving.
Poultry portions
Place thickest parts of the portions to the outside of the dish, cover
lm and reheat on 70%.
Turn over halfway through reheating.
NOTE: Ensure the poultry is thoroughly reheated before serving.
Casseroles
lm or a suitable lid and reheat
on 50%.
Stir frequently to ensure even reheating.
NOTE: Ensure the food is thoroughly reheated before serving.
To achieve the best results when reheating, select a suitable microwave power level appropriate to the type of
food. e.g. A bowl of vegetables can be reheated using 100%, while a lasagne which contains ingredients that
cannot be stirred, should be reheated using 50%.
NOTES:
• Remove food from foil or metal containers before reheating.
ected by the shape, depth, quantity and temperature of food together with the
size, shape and material of the container.
WARNING:
Never heat liquids in narrow-necked containers, as this could result in the contents erupting from
the container and may cause burns.
•
re, special care must be taken when reheating foods with a high sugar or fat content,
e.g. mince pies or Christmas pudding.
re.
• Canned potatoes should not be heated in the microwave oven, follow the manufacturer's instructions on the
can.
WARNING:
The contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars are to be stirred or shaken and the temperature
is to be checked before consumption to avoid burns.
11
CARE AND CLEANING
Disconnect the power supply cord before cleaning or leave the door open to inactivate the oven.
CLEAN THE OVEN AT REGULAR INTERVALS - Keep the oven clean and remove any food deposits, or it
could lead to deterioration of the surface. This could adversely affect the life of the appliance and possibly
result in a hazardous situation.
Exterior:
The outside may be cleaned with mild soap and warm water, wipe clean with a damp cloth. Avoid the use of
harsh abrasive cleaners. Keep the ventilation openings free of dust.
Door:
Wipe the door and window on both sides, the door seals and adjacent parts frequently with a damp cloth to
remove any spills or spatters. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
Touch Control Panel:
Wipe the panel with a cloth dampened slightly with water only.
Do not scrub or use any sort of chemical cleaners. Avoid the use of excess water.
Interior walls:
To clean the interior surfaces, wipe with a soft cloth and warm water. After use wipe the waveguide cover in
the oven with a soft damp cloth to remove any food splashes. Built-up splashes may overheat and begin to
smoke or catch fire. Do not remove the waveguide cover. DO NOT USE A COMMERCIAL OVEN CLEANER,
ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS AND SCOURING PADS ON ANY PART OF YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN.
NEVER SPRAY OVEN CLEANERS DIRECTLY ONTO ANY PART OF YOUR OVEN.
Avoid using excess water. After cleaning the oven, ensure any water is removed with a soft cloth.
Turntable/Roller Stay:
Wash with mild soapy water and dry thoroughly.

14. GENERAL
Your microwave oven is capable of heating food and beverages very quickly
therefore, it is very important that you select the appropriate cooking time and
power level for the type and quantity of food to be heated. If you are unsure
of the cooking time and power level required, begin with low cooking times
and power levels until the food is sufficiently heated evenly throughout.
12. QUANTITY
Microwave cooking times are directly related to the amount of food in the
oven. Because energy is absorbed by the food itself, one potato or a single
piece of chicken cooks rapidly. When the energy is divided among several
items, cooking takes more time.
11. STARTING TEMPERATURE
Frozen or refrigerated foods take longer to heat than food at room temperature.
Cooking times in this book are based on normal storage temperatures. Since
rooms, refrigerators and freezers differ in temperature, check cooking result
at the minimum time.
13. CONDENSATION
Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking. The humidity and
moisture in food will influence the amount of condensation in the oven.
Generally, covered foods will not cause as much condensation as uncovered
foods. Ensure that the ventilation openings are not blocked.
10. FAT AND BONE
Marbling within meat, or a thin, even layer of fat on a roast, speeds cooking.
Large fatty areas or excess drippings in dish attract energy away from meat,
and slows cooking. Centre bones do not affect cooking, but bone on the
side of meat conducts heat to the areas next to it.
8. SIZE
Small pieces cook faster than large ones. To speed up cooking, cut pieces
smaller than 5 cm so microwaves can penetrate to the centre from all sides.
For even cooking, make all the pieces the same size.
6. STANDING TIME
Standing time is important. After cooking or defrosting ensure adequate
standing time. This allows the food to continue cooking or heating.
Refer to cooking guides for each menu or according to manufacturers
instructions.
9. DENSITY
The depth to which microwaves penetrate food varies depending on the
food's density. Porous foods like minced beef or mashed potatoes microwave
faster than dense ones like steak or whole potatoes.
FISH
CHICKEN
7. STIRRING
Stir foods from the outside to the centre of the dish, once or twice during
cooking if possible.
Eg. Casseroles and Sauces.
5. SHIELDING
Shield using small pieces of aluminium foil to shield thin areas of meat, fish
and poultry or edges of cakes to prevent overcooking.
PLASTIC WRAP
4. PIERCING
Pierce potatoes, eggs, tomatoes or any foods with a skin or membrane to
allow steam to escape.
3. COVERING
Cover foods in the microwave if you would normally cover the food in
your ordinary oven, or to retain moisture. Cover foods such as Vegetables,
Casseroles, or when Reheating.
Use to cover foods:
LID
2. TURNING
Foods such as poultry and joints of meat should be turned over after half the
cooking time.
1. THE ARRANGEMENT
Arrange foods carefully. Place thickest areas toward outside of dish.
