Getting to Know Your Microwave Oven
This section discusses the concepts behind microwave cooking. It also shows the basics that you need to
know in order to operate your microwave oven. Please read this information before using your oven.
HOW YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS
Microwave ovens are safe. Microwave energy is not hot. It
causes food to make its own heat, and it is this heat that
cooks the food.
Microwaves are like TV waves, radio waves, or light waves.
You cannot see them, but you can see the results of what
they do.
Magnetron
A magnetron in the microwave oven produces microwaves.
The microwaves move into the oven where they contact
food as it turns on the turntable.
The glass turntable of your microwave oven lets microwaves
pass through7KHPLFURZDYHVWKHQERXQFHRIIDPHWDO
pRRr, back through the glass turntable, and are absorbed
by the food.
Oven cavity
Metal floor Glass turntable
DANGER
Microwaves pass through most glass, paper, and plastics
without heating them, so food absorbs the energy0LFURZDYHVERXQFHRIIPHWDOFRQWDLQHUVVRIRRGGRHV
not absorb the energy.
RADIO INTERFERENCE
Using your microwave oven may cause interference to your radio, TV, or similar equipment. When there is
interference, you can reduce it or remove it by:
‡ Cleaning the door and sealing surfaces of the oven.
‡ Adjusting the receiving antenna of the radio or television.
‡ Moving the receiver away from the microwave oven.
‡ Plugging WKHPLFURZDYHRYHQLQWRDGLçHUHQWRXWOHWVRWKDWWKHPLFURZDYHRYHQDQGUHFHLYHUDUHRQ
GLçHUHQWEUDQFKFLUFXLWs.
FOR THE BEST COOKING RESULTS
v$OZD\VFRRNIRRG for the shortest cooking time recommended. Check to see how the food is cooking. If
needed, touch Add 30 Sec while the oven is operating, or after the cooking cycle is over (see the "Add
30 Sec" section).
v6WLr, turn over, or rearrange the food being cooked about halfway through the cooking time for all recipes.
This will help ensure that the food is evenly cooked.
v If you do not have a cover for a dish, use wax paper, or microwave-approved paper towels or plastic
wrap. Remember to turn back a corner of the plastic wrap to vent steam during cooking.
v The metal shelf is used for cooking certain items and should be removed from the microwave oven when not
needed. Do not store metal shelf in the microwave oven.
EN-6
COOKWARE GUIDE
Most heat resistant, nonmetallic cookware is safe for use in your microwave oven. However, to test
cookware before using, follow these steps:
1. Place empty cookware in the microwave oven.
2. Measure 1 cup (250ml) of water in a glass measuring cup and place it in the oven beside the cookware.
3. Microwave on 100% power for 1 minute. If the cookware is warm, it should not be used for microwave cooking.
NOTE:
Some dishes (melamine, some ceramic dinnerware, etc.) absorb microwave energy, becoming too hot to
handle and slowing cooking time. Cooking in metal containers, not designed for microwave use, could
damage the oven, as could containers with hidden metal (twist-ties, foil lining, staples, metallic glaze or trim).
OPERATING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
‡ Never lean on or allow a child to swing on the door when it is open.
‡ Use hot pads to handle food containers. Microwave energy does not heat containers, but the heat from the food
can make the container hot.
‡ Do not use newspaper or other printed paper in the oven.
‡ Do not dr\pRZHUs, fruit, herbs, wood, paper, gourds, or clothes in the oven.
‡ Do not start a microwave oven when it is empty. This may shorten the life-span of the oven. To practice
programming, put a container of water in the oven before starting.
‡ Do not tr\WRPHOWSDUDIILQZD[LQWKHRYHn. PDUDIILQZD[ZLOOQRWPHOWLQDPLFURZDYHRYHQEHFDXVHLW
allows microwaves to pass through it.
‡ Do not operate the microwave oven unless the glass turntable is securely in place and can rotate freely.
The turntable can rotate in either direction. Make sure the turntable is correct-side up in the oven.
Handle your turntable with care when removing it from the oven to avoid breaking it.
‡ When using a browning dish, the browning dish bottom must be at least 3/16 inch above the turntable.
Follow the directions supplied with the browning dish.
‡ Never cook or reheat a whole egg inside the shell. Steam buildup in whole eggs may cause them to
burst, and possibly damage the oven. Slice hard-boiled eggs before heating. In rare cases, poached eggs
have been known to explode. Cover poached eggs and allow a standing time of one minute before
cutting into them.
‡ For best results, stir any liquid several times during heating or reheating. Liquids heated in certain
containers (especially containers shaped like cylinders) may overheat. The liquid may splash during or after
KHDWLQJRUZKHQDGGLQJLQJUHGLHQWVFRIIHHJUDQXOHs, tea bags, etc.). This can harm you or damage the
microwave oven.
‡ Microwaves may not reach the center of a roast. The heat spreads from the outer to the center cooked
areas, just as in regular oven cooking. This is one of the reasons for letting some foods (for example, roasts or
baked potatoes) stand for a while after cooking, or for stirring some foods during the cooking time.
‡ Do not deep fry in the oven. 0LFURZDYDEOHXWHQVLOVDUHQRWVXLWDEOHDQGLWLVGLèFXOWWRPDLQWDLQDSSURSULDWH
deep-frying temperatures.
‡ Do not overcook potatoes. At the end of the recommended cooking time SRWDWRHVVKRXOGEHVOLJKWO\oUP
because they will continue cooking during standing time. After microwaving, let potatoes stand for 5

Microwave Cooking Tips
Amount of Food
Releasing Pressure in Foods
v,I\RXLQFUHDVHRUGHFUHDVH the amount of food
you prepare, the time it takes to cook that food
will also change. For example, if you double a
recipe, add a little more than half the original
cooking time. Check for readiness and, if
necessary, add more time in small increments.
v6HYHUDOIRRGV (for example: baked potatoes, sausages,
egg yolks, and some fruits) are tightly covered by a skin
or membrane. Steam can build up under the membrane
during cooking, causing the food to burst. To relieve the
pressure and to prevent bursting, pierce these foods
before cooking with a fork, cocktail pick, or toothpick.
Starting Temperature of Food
Using Standing Time
v7KHORZHUWKHWHPSHUDWXUH of the food being
put into the microwave oven, the longer it
takes to cook. Food at room temperature will
reheat quicker than food at refrigerator
temperature.
Composition of Food
v F o o d with a lot of fat and sugar will heat
faster than food containing a lot of water.
Fat and sugar will also reach a higher
temperature than water in the cooking process.
v7KHPRUHGHQVHWKHIRRG the longer it takes
to heat. "Very dense" food, like meat, takes
longer to heat than lighter, more porous food,
like sponge cakes.
Size and Shape
v6PDOOHUSLHFHVRIIRRG will cook faster than
larger pieces. Also, same shaped pieces cook
PRUHHYHQO\WKDQGLçHUHQWO\VKDSHGSLHFHs.
v:LWKIRRGVWKDWKDYHGLçHUHQWWKLFNQHVVHVthe
thinner parts will cook faster than the thicker
parts. Place the thinner parts of chicken wings
and legs in the center of the dish.
Stirring and Turning Foods
v6WLrring and turning foods spreads heat quickly
to the center of the dish and avoids overcooking
at the outer edges of the food.
v$OZD\VDOORZIRRGWRVWDQG either in or out of the oven,
after cooking power stops. Standing time after defrosting
and cooking allows the temperature to evenly spread
throughout the food, improving the cooking results. For
inside oven standing time, you can program a "0" power
second stage of the cooking cycle. See Two-Stage Cooking.
v The length of the standing time depends on how much
food you are cooking and how dense it is. Sometimes it
can be as short as the time it takes to remove the food
from the oven and take it to the serving table. However,
with a larger, denser food item, the standing time may
be as long as 10 minutes.
Arranging Food
For best results, place food evenly on the plate. You can
do this in several ways:
v,I\RXDUHFRRNLQJVHYHUDOLWHPVRIWKHVDPHIRRG
such as baked potatoes, place them in a ring pattern for
uniform cooking.
v When cooking foods of uneven shapes or thickness,
such as chicken breasts, place the smaller or thinner
area of the food towards the center of the dish where
it will be heated last.
v Layer thin slices of meat on top of each other.
v :KHQ\RXFRRNRUUHKHDWZKROHILVK score the skin - this
prevents cracking.
v'RQRW let food or a container touch the top or sides of
the oven. This will prevent possible arcing. Arcing is a
spark that can cause damage to the oven interior.
Covering Food
v Cover food to reduce splattering, shorten cooking
times, and keep food moist.
You can use any covering that lets microwaves
pass through. See "Getting to Know Your Microwave
Oven" for materials that microwaves will
pass through.

Using Aluminum Foil
NOTE: Metal containers should not be used in a microwave oven. There are, however, some exceptions. If you
have purchased food prepackaged in an aluminum foil container, refer to the instructions on the package.
When using aluminum foil containers, cooking times may be longer because microwaves will only penetrate
the top of the food. When using aluminum containers without package instructions, follow these guidelines:

Can I use either metal or aluminum pans in
my microwave oven?

absorb microwave energy). Never allow metal to touch
walls or door.

What are the humming noises that I hear when
my microwave oven is operating?
You may hear the sound of the transformer when
the magnetron tube cycles on.
Why does the dish become hot when I microwave
food in it? I thought that this should
not happen.
As the food becomes hot it will conduct the
heat to the dish. Be prepared to use hot pads to
remove food after cooking.
What does "standing time" mean?
"Standing time" means that after the timed cooking period
ends, food should be allowed to stand either inside or

oven standing time will allow the oven to be available for
other use. For inside oven standing time, you can program
a "0" power second stage of the cooking cycle. See TwoStage Cooking.
Why does steam come out of the air
exhaust vent?
Steam is normally produced during cooking. The
microwave oven has been designed to vent this steam.
Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven?
Yes. Use the microwave oven popcorn selection. Do not use
regular paper bags. Do not re-pop unpopped kernels.
Do not pop popcorn in glass cookware. Remove the metal
shelf from microwave oven when cooking popcorn.
