It has been type-tested and found to comply with limits for an ISM Equipment pursuant to part 18
of FCC Rules, which are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in
a residential installation.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause interference to radio or television reception, which can be
determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct
the interference by one or more of the followings.
• Reorient the receiving antenna of radio or television.
• Relocate the Microwave oven with respect to the receiver.
• Move the microwave oven away from the receiver.
• Plug the microwave oven into a different outlet so that microwave oven
and receiver are on different branch circuits.
THE MANUFACTURER is not responsible for any radio or TV interference caused by
UNAUTHORIZED MODIFICATION to this microwave oven. It is the responsibility of
the user to correct such interference.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, the grounding plug reduces
the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for electric current. This appliance is equipped
with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet
that is properly installed and grounded.
WARNING: Improper use of the grounding can result in a risk of electric shock.
Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are not
completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly
grounded, and either :
(1) If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire extension cord
that has a 3-blade grounding plug, and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept
the plug on the appliance. The marked rating of the extension cord shall
be equal to or greater than the electrical rating of the appliance. or
(2) Do not use an extension cord, if the power supply cord is too short,
have a qualified electrician or serviceman install an outlet near the appliance.

INSTALLATION
1. Examine the oven after unpacking.
Check for damage such as a misaligned door, broken door or dent in the cavity.
If any damage is visible, DO NOT INSTALL, and notify your dealer immediately.
2. Level, flat location.
Install the microwave oven on a level, flat surface.
3. Ventilation.
Do not block air vents. If they are blocked during operation, the oven may overheat and eventually cause
a failure.
For proper ventilation, allow 3 inches of space between oven top, sides, rear and adjacent surfaces.
4. Away from radio and TV sets.
Poor television reception and radio interference may result if the oven is located close to a TV, radio,
antenna, feeder, etc.
Place the oven as far from them as possible.
5. Away from heating appliances and water taps.
Keep the oven away from heat, steam or splashing liquids. These things can adversely affect oven wiring
and contacts.
6. Power supply.
This microwave oven requires a power supply of approximately 12 Amperes, 120 Volts, 60Hz
and a grounded outlet. A short power cord is provided to reduce the risk of the user becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer cord sets or extension cords are available
and may be used if care is exercised.
If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the cord should be at least as great
as the electrical rating of the oven.
The extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire cord. The longer cord should be arranged
so it does not drape over the table top or counter where children can pull on it or trip over it.
7. The minimum height of free space necessary above the top surface of the oven is 100mm.
When use 3-pronged plug
When use grounding adaptor, make
sure the receptacle box is fully
grounded.

• Put one cup of water in a glass measure next to the empty utensil.

• After 1 minute the water should be warm but the utensil should

MICROWAVE UTENSILS
Glass, Ceramic and China
Ovenproof glass or ceramic baking dishes are the most used microwave utensils.
Many of these items are readily available in most homes: glass measures, custard cups, mixing bowls,
covered casseroles, pie plates and round or square cake dishes. Ovenproof dinnerware is usually safe
to use in the microwave.
Do not heat or cook in glass jars or bottles.
Do not use dishes with silver, gold, platinum or other metal trim. Arcing may occur and/or the dish may
break.
Do not use delicate or stemmed glassware. Although the glass may be transparent to microwave energy,
heat from the food may cause the glassware to crack.
Plastics
Plastic dishes, cups, mugs and bowls may be used in the oven for short periods of time. None of these
should be used in the oven for prolonged periods because distortion and melting may occur.
Check manufacturer’s recommendations concerning microwave safety.
Plastic wrap can be used to cover dishes in most recipes if the dish is deep enough to avoid plastic wrap
touching the food. Always vent the wrap by folding back one corner to allow excess steam to escape.
Plastic cooking bags should be slit before cooking so excess steam can escape.
Do not use wire twist ties to close the bag. Wire twist ties can cause arcing which can damage the oven.
Paper
Paper cups, wax paper, napkins, paper towels, and plates may be used for short cooking. Prolonged time
in the oven can cause paper to burn. Do not use recycled paper products, such as brown paper bags.
They contain impurities which may cause arcing and damage the oven.
Metal
Metal utensils should not be used in the oven. Metal reflects microwave energy so foods will not cook
evenly. Metal can cause arcing and damage the oven.

COOKING GUIDE
EGGS AND CHEESE
Eggs and cheese are delicate foods requiring care in
microwave cooking. Piercing the yolks of eggs helps to
release steam during cooking. Stirring egg mixtures
frequently helps distribute the heat evenly. Because the
microwave energy cooks so quickly, always check to see if
the eggs are done to your satisfaction after the standing time.
At this time, stir, rearrange or turn over. If needed, add
additional time gradually. To cook only one egg, try a lower
Power setting until you get satisfactory results.
stirred into a hot mixture. Cheese may not look melted so
always stir before determining if cheese is melted enough.
Sprinkle cheese over a hot casserole in a thicker layer at the
edges. Microwave energy cooks from the outside in, so the
outer edges will melt faster than the center.
For cheese melt sandwiches, heat filling where possible
before adding it to the bread. Top each sandwich with a slice
of cheese and cook on P-HI for about 15 to 20 seconds for
one sandwich, about 30 seconds for two sandwiches and
about 1 minute for four sandwiches or until cheese is melted.
Shredded soft cheeses and grated hard cheeses melt well if
HARD-COOKED EGGS

VEGETABLES
Vegetables are favorite foods when cooked in the

less water than conventional cooking, vegetables cooked by
microwave energy retain more vitamins than when cooked

To cook better in the microwave, vegetables should be cut
into evenly sized pieces. Baked potatoes, squash, or
vegetables with skins can be pierced with a fork and arranged
in a circle for the best cooking results. Uneven vegetables
such as asparagus or broccoli, can be arranged in the dish
alternating thick and thin ends. Stirring, rearranging, turning

that all ends are tucked under and lie flat to the food. Cover
with wax paper to prevent spattering.
Seafood cooks very quickly in the microwave-about 3 to 4
minutes per pound. Wait for stand time, then proceed
carefully with extra time, to finish cooking without
overcooking. Cooked seafood will be opaque and firm, but
not tough.
Because fish is unevenly shaped, the arrangement is critical
to success. To arrange several fillets in a deep glass pie plate,
put thicker edges to the outside and thinner edges to the
inside. Try to create a circle for best results, even overlap thin
ends where necessary to achieve overall even thickness.
Frozen fish and seafood are convenient to keep on hand. See
the "FISH-AUTO DEFROSTING" chart on page 11 of this
cookbook for defrosting details.
Single items may do better if the thin ends are shielded with a
foil. Some rules apply to the use of foil-Never cover more

POULTRY
Juicy and moist describes poultry cooked by microwave
energy. It is a superior method for cooking chicken to be used
in casseroles, salads, or to have for sandwiches. See Poached
Chicken recipe.
(see page 15). Be sure that all poultry is completely defrosted
before cooking. Check for doneness after stand time is over.
Remember that more cooking will take place during standing
time. Poultry must be cooked to an internal temperature of
160°F for boneless pieces, to 170°F for bone-in pieces and to
185°F for whole birds.
Arrangement is very important with poultry and its uneven
shapes. Try to arrange pieces in a circular pattern wherever
possible for the most even defrosting or cooking. The
rounded part of the drumstick should go at the outer edge, for
example, while the thinner end goes to the middle of the dish.
Continue with other pieces until the overall layer is fairly
even. Cover with wax paper to prevent spattering.
Poultry is done when the meat is no longer pink and the
juices are the colour of chicken broth with no traces of pink.
Be sure to check for these signs by cutting into the inner
thigh. You may also check for the internal temperature with
an instant-read thermometer. Occasionally the bones will
show red spots, but this does not affect the doneness.

Stand time after cooking is an important aspect of microwave
cooking since more cooking will take place then. The
residual heat in the food will equalize and finish the cooking
process. Always check for doneness after the stand time.
The exact time to cook each piece of meat will depend on the

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
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 stir liquids before heating. Heated liquids can erupt, if not mixed with air.
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.
