Microwave utensil guide
Do not use
Use
• Oven proof glass (specifically treated
for high intensity heat):
Utility dishes, loaf dishes, pie plates,
cake plates, liquid measuring cups,
casseroles and bowls without metallic
trim.
• Metal utensils:
Metal shields the food from microwave energy and produces uneven
cooking. Also, avoid metal skewers, thermometers or foil trays. Metal
utensils can cause arcing, which can damage your microwave oven.
• Metal decoration:
Bowls, cups, serving plates and platters without metallic trim.
• China:
Bowls, cups, serving plates and platters
without metallic trim.
• Plastic:
Plastic wrap (as a cover) - lay the plastic
wrap loosely over the dish and press it to
the sides. Vent plastic wrap by turning
back one edge slightly to allow excess
steam to escape. The dish should be
deep enough so that the plastic wrap will
not touch the food. Use plastic dishes,
cups, semi-rigid freezer containers and
plastic bags for short cooking times. Use
these with care because the plastic may
soften from the heat of the food.
• Paper:
Paper towls, waxed paper, paper napkins
and paper plates with no metallic trim or
design. Look for the manufacturer’s label
for any special instructions for use in the
microwave oven.
• Aluminum foil:
Avoid large sheets of aluminum foil because they hinder cooking and
may cause harmful arcing. Use small pieces of foil to shield poultry
legs and wings. Keep ALL aluminum foil at least 1 inch from the side
walls of the oven cavity and door of the microwave.
• Wood:
Wooden bowls and boards will dry out and may split or crack when
you use them in the microwave oven. Baskets made of wood will react
in the same way.
• Tightly covered utensils:
Be sure to leave openings for steam to escape from covered
cookware. Pierce plastic pouches of vegetables or other food items
before cooking. Tightly closed pouches may explode.
• Brown paper:
Avoid using brown paper bags. They absorb heat and can burn.
• Flawed or chipped cooking utensils:
Any utensil that is cracked, flawed or chipped may break in the oven.
• Metal twist ties:
Remove metal twist ties from plastic or paper bags. They become hot
and could cause a fire.

3. Press START pad.
When heating has finished you will hear beeps and "Good"
will display.
Note: Power levels cannot be changed for both defrost (by
weight) or defrost (by time) because the defrost performance
will be adversely affected.
Special notes for defrosting by time
• After pressing START/Pause key, the display will
count down remaining defrost time. The oven will beep
twice during the defrost cycle. At this time open the door

Manual Operation
Defrosting tips
• When using the defrost weight feature, the weight
entered should always be pounds (valid entries are from
0.1 to 6.0 pounds).
• The shape of the package will alter the defrosting time.
Shallow rectangular food packets defrost more quickly
than a deep frozen block of food.
• Use both defrost weight and defrost time features for
raw food items only. Defrosting gives best results when
food to be thawed is a minimum of 0°F (taken directly
from a true freezer). If the food has been stored in a
refrigerator-freezer that does not maintain a temperature
of 5° F or below, always program a lower food weight or
lower cook time to prevent cooking the food.
• Separate pieces as they begin to defrost. Separated
frozen pieces of food defrost better.
• Shield warm areas of food with small pieces of foil if they
start to become warm.
• You may use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield food
items like chicken wings, leg tips and fish tails, but do
not allow the foil to touch the oven cavity walls when
defrosting.
• If the frozen food is stored outside the freezer for up to 20
minutes, enter a reduced cook time or weight.
Defrosting suggestions for meats
For best results, please read these suggestions when defrosting meats.
Meat
Normal amount
Suggestions
• Roast beef or pork
2.5 to 6 lbs.
(40 to 96 oz.)

food over and shield any warm portions with narrow strips of aluminum
foil. Let stand, covered for 15-30 minutes.
• Steaks, chops or fish
0.5 to 3 lbs.
(8 to 48 oz.)
After each stage, rearrange the food. If there are any warm or thawed
portions of food, shield them with narrow flat pieces of aluminum foil.
Remove any pieces of food that are nearly defrosted. Let stand,
covered for about 5 to 10 minutes.
• Ground meat
0.5 to 3 lbs.
(8 to 48 oz.)
After each stage, remove any pieces of food that are nearly defrosted.
Let stand, covered with foil for 5 to 10 minutes.

• Natural moisture
Very moist foods cook more evenly because microwave
energy heats water molecules very efficiently.
• Stirring
Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetable from the
outside to the center to distribute the heat more evenly.
This will allow the food to cook faster. Constant stirring is
not necessary.
• Turn over items
Turn over foods such as pork chops, roasts or whole
cauliflower halfway through the cook time. This will help
to expose all sides equally to microwave energy.
• Food placement
Place delicate areas of food items, such as asparagus
tips, toward the center of the turntable tray.
• Food arrangement
Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces
or salmon, with the thicker or meatier parts toward the
outside of the turntable tray.
• Let the food stand
After removing the food from the microwave, cover the
food with foil or a casserole lid and let it stand to finish
cooking. This will help the food finish in the center and
avoids overcooking the out edges, The length of stand
time depends on the density and surface area of the food
items.
• Wrapping in paper towels or waxed paper
Sandwiches and many other food types containing prebaked bread should be wrapped prior to placing in the
microwave to help prevent the food items fro drying out
while heating.

Cooking poultry in your microwave
Be sure to place poultry on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a microwave-safe dish. Cover poultry with wax paper to
prevent splattering. Use narrow strips of aluminum foil to shield any bone tips or thin meat areas, or areas that start to
overcook. After cooking, check the temperature in several places before letting the meat stand the recommended time.

• Always pierce whole eggs to keep them from bursting.
• Cook eggs just until set; they will become tough if
overcooked.

Cooking Charts
Cooking vegetables in your microwave
• Vegetables should be washed just before cooking.
Rarely is extra water needed. If dense vegetables such
as potatoes, carrots and greens are being cooked, add
about ¼ cup of water.
• When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with
a lid or vented microwavable plastic wrap.
• Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash,
eggplant, etc., should have their skin pricked in several
locations before cooking to prevent them from bursting.
• Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.)
will cook faster than larger vegetables.
• For more even cooking, stir or rearrange whole
vegetables halfway through the cook time.
• Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or
corn on the cob, should be arranged in a circle on the
turntable before cooking. The will cook more evenly if
turned over halfway through cooking.
• Most of the time, the denser the food the longer the
required standing time. For example, a baked potato
should stand for 5 minutes before serving, while a dish of
peas may be served immediately.
• Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli
with the stem ends pointing towards the edge of the dish
and the tips toward the center.
Cooking seafood in your microwave
Place fish on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a microwave-safe dish. Be sure to always cook fish until it flakes easily
with a fork. Use a tight cover to steam fish; a lighter cover of wax paper or paper towel provides less steaming. And be sure
not to overcook fish; check it for doneness at a minimum cooking time before cooking longer.

Care & Cleaning
Cleaning suggestions
For best performance and for safety reasons, keep the oven
clean inside and outside. Take special care to keep the
inner door panel and oven fron frame free of food and grease
build-up.
• Wash the oven door window with very mild soap and
water. Be sure to use a soft clean cloth to avoid
scratching.
• If steam accumulates inside or outside the oven door,
wipe with a soft cloth. Steam can accumulate when
operating the oven in high humidity and in no way
indicates microwave leakage.
Never use rough scouring powder or pads on the
microwave. Wipe the microwave oven inside and out with a
soft cloth and and warm (not hot) mild detergent solution.
Then rinse and wipe completely dry.
• Never operate the oven without food in the oven cavity;
this can damage the magnetron tube or glass tray. You
may wish to leave a cup of water standing inside the oven
when it is not in use to prevent damage if the oven is
accidentally turned on.
Wipe spatters immediately with a wet paper towel,
especially after cooking greasy foods like chicken or bacon.
Clean your microwave oven weekly or more often, if needed.
Follow these instructions to clean and care for your
microwave oven:
• Keep the inside (cavity) of the oven clean. Food particles
and spilled liquids can stick to the oven walls, causing
the oven to work less efficiently.
• Wipe up spills immediately. Use a damp, clean cloth
and mild soap. DO NOT use harsh detergents or
abrasive cleaners.
• To help loosen baked-on food particles or liquids, heat 2
cups of water (add the juice of 1 lemon if you desire to
keep the oven fresh smelling) in a 4 cup measuring glass
at High power for 5 minutes or until boiling. Let stand in
oven cavity for 1 or 2 minutes.
• Remove the glass turntable tray from the oven when
cleaning the oven cavity or tray. To prevent the glass
turntable from breaking, handle with care and do not put
it in water immediately after cooking. Wash the turntable
tray in warm sudsy water or in the dishwasher.
• Clean the outside surface of the microwave with soap
and a clean damp cloth. Dry with a clean soft cloth. To
prevent damage to the operating parts of the oven, do not
let water seep into any vents or openings.

Before you call a repair person for your microwave, check
the list below for possible easy solutions to some common
problems.
Neither the microwave’s display or oven operates • Properly insert the plug into a grounded power outlet.
The power goes off before the cook time has elapsed • If there has been a power interruption, remove the plug
from the outlet; wait 10 seconds, then plug the
microwave in again. If there was a power outage, the
time indicator in the display will show 00:00.
• Reset the clock and any cooking instructions.
• Reset the household circuit breaker or replace any blown
fuses.
• Press the STOP/cancel pad twice and attempt to reenter cooking instructions.
• If the outlet is controlled by a wall switch, make sure the
wall switch is turned on.
• Plug a different appliance into the power outlet. If the
other appliance will not operate, have a qualified
electrician repair the outlet.
• Remove the plug from the outlet, wait 10 seconds, then
plug the microwave in again.
• Plug the microwave into a different power outlet.
• Reset the household circuit breaker or replace any blown
fuses.
• Plug a different appliance into the power outlet. If the
other appliance will not operate, have a qualified
electrician repair the outlet.
• Plug the microwave into a different power outlet.
The oven display works, but the oven will not operate • Make sure the oven door is closed securely and
completely.
• Check to see if packing material or other materials are
stuck to the door seal.
• Check for damage to the oven door.
• Press the STOP/cancel pad twice and attempt to reenter cooking instructions.
• Plug a different appliance into the power outlet. If the
other appliance will not operate, have a qualified
electrician repair the outlet.
• Plug the microwave into a different power outlet.
Food is cooking too slowy • Make sure the oven is on a seperate 15 amp circuit line.
Operating another appliance on the same circuit can
cause a voltage drop. If necessary, move the microwave
to its own circuit.
You see sparks or arcing • Remove any metallic utensils, cookware or metal ties
from the oven cavity. If using aluminum foil, use only
narrow strips and allow at least one inch between the foil
and the interior oven walls.
The turntable makes noises or sticks • Clean the turntable, roller ring and oven cavity bottom.
• Make sure the turntable and roller ring are positioned
correctly.
Using your microwave causes TV or radio interference • This is similar to the interference caused by other small
appliances, such as hair dryers. Move your microwave
further away from other appliances, like your TV or radio.
Please note : If the oven is set to cook for more than 25
minutes at 100% power level, it will automatically adjust
itself to a 70% power level after 25 minutes to avoid
overcooking.
