Important safety instructions: Read carefully & keep
for future reference
To avoid the danger of fire
The microwave oven should not
be left unattended during operation.
Power levels that are too high or
cooking times that are too long may
overheat foods resulting in a fire.
The electrical outlet must be readily
accessible so that the unit can be
unplugged easily in an emergency.
It is recommended that a separate circuit
serving only this appliance be provided.
Do not store or use the oven outdoors.
If food being heated begins to
smoke, DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR.
Turn off and unplug the oven and wait
until the food has stopped smoking.
Opening the door while food is
smoking may cause a fire.
Only use microwave-safe
containers and utensils.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when using disposable plastic, paper
or other combustible food containers.
Clean the waveguide cover, the
oven cavity, the turntable and
turntable support after use. These
must be dry and free from grease.
Built-up grease may overheat and
begin to smoke or catch fire.
Do not place flammable materials near
the oven or ventilation openings. Do not
block the ventilation openings.
Remove all metallic seals, wire twists,
etc., from food and food packages. Arcing
on metallic surfaces may cause a fire.
Do not use the microwave oven to heat
oil for deep frying. The temperature cannot
be controlled and the oil may catch fire.
To make popcorn, only use special
microwave popcorn makers.
Do not store food or any other items
inside the oven.
Check the settings after you start the
oven to ensure the oven is operating as
desired.
See the corresponding hints in this
operation manual.
To avoid the possibility of injury
Warning: Do not operate the oven
if it is damaged or malfunctioning.
Check the following before use:
a) The door; make sure the door
closes properly and ensure it is not
misaligned or warped.
b) The hinges and door safety latches;
check to make sure they are not
broken or loose.
c) The door seals and sealing
surfaces; ensure that they have
not been damaged.
d) Inside the oven cavity or on the
door; make sure there are no dents.
e) The power supply cord and plug;
ensure that they are not damaged.
Never adjust, repair or modify the
oven yourself. It is hazardous for
anyone other than a competent
person to carry out any service or
repair operation which involves the
removal of a cover which gives
protection against exposure to
microwave energy.

electrolux safety information
Do not operate the oven with the door
open or alter the door safety latches in any
way.
Do not operate the oven if there is an
object between the door seals and sealing
surfaces.
Do not allow grease or dirt to build
up on the door seals and adjacent
parts. Follow instructions for “Care &
cleaning”. Failure to maintain the
oven in a clean condition could lead
to a deterioration of the surface that
could adversely affect the life of the

and whole hard boiled eggs should
not be heated in microwave ovens
since they may explode even after
microwave cooking has ended. To
cook or reheat eggs which have not
been scrambled or mixed, pierce the
yolks and the whites, or the eggs may
explode. Shell and slice hard boiled
eggs before reheating them in the
microwave oven.
Pierce the skin of such foods as
potatoes, sausages and fruit before
cooking, or they may explode.
electrolux safety information
To avoid the possibility of burns
Use pot holders or oven gloves when
removing food from the oven to prevent
burns.

Microwave cooking advice
To cook/defrost food in a microwave
oven, the microwave energy must be able
to pass through the container to penetrate
the food. Therefore it is important to
choose suitable cookware.
Round/oval dishes are preferable to
square/oblong ones, as the food in the
corners tends to overcook.
It is important to turn, rearrange or stir
food to ensure even heating.
Standing time is necessary after
cooking, as it enables the heat to disperse
equally throughout the food.
Food characteristics
Composition Foods high in fat or sugar (e.g. Christmas pudding, mince pies) require less heating
time. Care should be taken as overheating can lead to fire.
Density
Food density will affect the amount of cooking time needed. Light porous foods, such
as cakes or bread, cook more quickly than heavy, dense foods, such as roasts and
casseroles.
Quantity
The cooking time must be increased as the amount of food placed in the oven
increases. E.g. Four potatoes will take longer to cook than two.
Size
Small foods and small pieces cook faster than large ones, as microwaves can penetrate from all sides to the centre. For even cooking make all the pieces the same size.
Shape
Foods which are irregular in shape, such as chicken breasts or drumsticks, take
longer to cook in the thicker parts. Round shapes cook more evenly than square
shapes when microwave cooking.
Temperature The initial temperature of food affects the amount of cooking time needed. Chilled
of food
foods will take longer to cook than food at room temperature. Cut into foods with
fillings, for example jam doughnuts, to release heat or steam.
Cooking techniques
Arrange
Place the thickest parts of food towards the outside of the dish. E.g. Chicken
drumsticks.
Cover
Use vented microwave cling film or a suitable lid.
Pierce
Foods with a shell, skin or membrane must be pierced in several places before cooking
or reheating as steam will build up and may cause food to explode, e.g. Potatoes, Fish,
Chicken, Sausages.
Important: Eggs should not be heated using microwave power as they may explode,
even after cooking has ended, e.g. poached, hard boiled.
Stir, turn and For even cooking it is essential to stir, turn and rearrange food during cooking. Always
rearrange
stir and rearrange from the outside towards the centre.
Stand
Standing time is necessary after cooking to enable the heat to disperse equally
throughout the food.
Shield
Some areas of food being defrosted may become warm. Warm areas can be shielded
with small pieces of foil, which reflect microwaves, e.g. legs and wings on a chicken.

Comments
Small pieces of aluminium foil can be used to shield food from
overheating. Keep foil at least 2 cm from the oven walls, as
arcing may occur. Foil containers are not recommended
unless specified by the manufacturer, e.g. Microfoil ®, follow
instructions carefully.
Always follow the manufacturers instructions. Do not exceed
heating times given. Be very careful as these dishes become
very hot.
Porcelain, pottery, glazed earthenware and bone china are
usually suitable, except for those with metallic decoration.
Care should be taken if using fine glassware as it can break or
crack if heated suddenly.
It is not recommended to use metal cookware when using
microwave power as it will arc, which can lead to fire.
Care must be taken as some containers warp, melt or
discolour at high temperatures.
Should not touch the food and must be pierced to let the
steam escape.
Must be pierced to let steam escape. Ensure bags are
suitable for microwave use. Do not use plastic or metal ties,
as they may melt or catch fire due to the metal arcing.
Only use for warming or to absorb moisture. Care must be
taken as overheating may cause fire.
Always attend the oven when using these materials as
overheating may cause fire.
May contain extracts of metal which will cause ‘arcing’ and
may lead to fire.

Used for fast cooking or reheating e.g. soup, casseroles, canned food, hot beverages,
vegetables, fish, etc.
Used for longer cooking of dense foods such as roast joints, meat loaf and plated meals,
also for sensitive dishes such as cheese sauce and sponge cakes. At this reduced setting,
the sauce will not boil over and food will cook evenly without over cooking at the sides.
450 W
For dense foods which require a long cooking time when cooked conventionally,
e.g. beef dishes, it is advisable to use this power setting to ensure the meat will be tender.
270 W/ To defrost, select this power setting, to ensure that the dish defrosts evenly. This
DEFROST setting is also ideal for simmering rice, pasta, dumplings and cooking egg
custard.

Recipes
All the recipes in this book are
calculated on the basis of 4 servings
unless otherwise stated.
Adapting recipes for the microwave
oven
If you would like to adapt your favourite
recipes for the microwave, you should take
note of the following: Shorten cooking
times by a third to a half. Follow the
example of the recipes in this book.
Foods which have a high moisture content such as meat, fish, poultry, vegetables,
fruit, stews and soups can be prepared in
your microwave without any difficulty.
Onion soup
Utensils: Bowl with lid (2 l capacity)
4 soup bowls (200 ml)
Ingredients
10 g
butter or margarine
100 g onions, sliced
800 ml meat stock
salt and pepper
2 slices bread
40 g
grated cheese
Foods which have little moisture, such
as platters of food, should have the surface
moistened prior to heating or cooking.
The amount of liquid to be added to
raw foods, which are to be braised, should
be reduced to about two thirds of the
quantity in the original recipe. If necessary,
add more liquid during cooking.
The amount of fat to be added can be
reduced considerably. A small amount of
butter, margarine or oil is sufficient to
flavour food. For this reason your
microwave is excellent for preparing low-fat
foods as part of a diet.
1. Grease the bowl, add the sliced
onion, meat stock and the seasoning.
Cover and cook.
9-11 min. 900 W
2. Toast the slices of bread, cut them
into cubes and divide them among
the soup bowls. Pour the soup over
the toast cubes and sprinkle on the
cheese.
3. Place the bowls on the turntable, and
grill.
6-7 min. Grill

Care & cleaning
CAUTION: DO NOT USE
COMMERCIAL OVEN CLEANERS,
STEAM CLEANERS, ABRASIVE,
HARSH CLEANERS, ANY THAT
CONTAIN SODIUM HYDROXIDE OR
SCOURING PADS ON ANY PART OF
YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN.
CLEAN THE OVEN AT REGULAR
INTERVALS AND REMOVE ANY FOOD
DEPOSITS. Failure to maintain the
oven in a clean condition could lead to
a deterioration of the surface that
could adversely affect the life of the
appliance and possibly result in a
hazardous situation.
Oven exterior
The outside of your oven can be
easily cleaned with mild soap and water.
Make sure that the soap is wiped off
with a moist cloth, and dry the exterior with
a soft towel.
Control panel
Open the door before cleaning to
deactivate the control panel. Care should
be taken in cleaning the control panel.
Using a cloth dampened with water
only, gently wipe the panel until it becomes
clean. Avoid using excessive amounts of
water. Do not use any sort of chemical or
abrasive cleaner.
Oven interior
1. For cleaning, wipe any spatters or spills
with a soft damp cloth or sponge after
each use while the oven is still warm.
For heavier spills, use mild soap and
wipe several times with a damp cloth
until all residues are removed.
2. Make sure that mild soap or water do
not penetrate the small vents in the
walls which may cause damage to the
oven.
3. Do not use spray type cleaners on the
oven interior.
4. Heat up your oven regularly by using
the grill. Remaining food or fat splashed
can cause smoke or a bad smell.
Turntable & turntable support
Remove the turntable and turntable
support from the oven. Wash the
turntable and turntable support in mild
soapy water. Dry with a soft cloth. Both
the turntable and the turntable support
are dishwasher safe.
Door
To remove all trace of dirt, regularly
clean both sides of the door, the door seals
and surfaces with a soft, damp cloth. Do
not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp
metal scrapers to clean the oven door glass
since they can scratch the surface, which
may result in shattering of the glass.
Racks
These should be washed in a mild
washing up liquid solution and dried. The
rack is dishwasher safe.
Important:
A steam cleaner should not be used.
