✽
Important
Note
Caution
PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY
Failure to observe the following safety precautions may result in harmful exposure to
microwave energy.
(a) Under no circumstances should any attempt be made to operate the oven with
the door open or to tamper with the safety interlocks (door latches) or to insert
anything into the safety interlock holes.
(b) Do not place any object between the oven door and front face or allow food or
cleaner residues to accumulate on sealing surfaces. Ensure that the door and
door sealing surfaces are kept clean by wiping after use first with a damp cloth
and then with a soft dry cloth.
(c) Do not operate the oven if it is damaged until it has been repaired by a qualified
microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer.
It is particularly important that the oven door closes properly and that there is no
damage to the:
(1) Door, door seals and sealing surfaces
(2) Door hinges (broken or loose)
(3) Power cable
(d) The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone other than a properly
qualified microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer.

Safety Precautions
Before cooking food or liquids in your microwave oven, please check that the
following safety precautions are taken.
GB
8
1.
DO NOT use any metallic cookware in the microwave oven:
◆ Metallic containers
◆ Dinnerware with gold or silver trimmings
◆ Skewers, forks, etc.
Reason: Electric arcing or sparking may occur and may damage the oven.
2.
DO NOT heat:
◆ Airtight or vacuum-sealed bottles, jars, containers
Ex) Baby food jars
◆ Airtight food.
Ex) Eggs, nuts in shells, tomatoes
Reason: The increase in pressure may cause them to explode.
Tip:
Remove lids and pierce skins, bags, etc.
3.
DO NOT operate the microwave oven when it is empty.
Reason: The oven walls may be damaged.
Tip:
Leave a glass of water inside the oven at all times.
The water will absorb the microwaves if you accidentally set the oven going when
it is empty.
4.
DO NOT cover the rear ventilation slots with cloths or paper.
Reason: The cloths or paper may catch fire as hot air is evacuated from the oven.
5.
ALWAYS use oven gloves when removing a dish from the oven.
Reason: Some dishes absorb microwaves and heat is always transferred from the food to
the dish.The dishes are therefore hot.
6.
DO NOT touch heating elements or interior oven walls.
Reason: These walls may be hot enough to burn even after cooking has finished, although
they do not appear to be so. Do not allow inflammable materials to come into
contact with any interior area of the oven. Let the oven cool down first.
7.
To
◆
◆
◆
◆
reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
Do not store flammable materials in the oven
Remove wire twist ties from paper or plastic bags
Do not use your microwave oven to dry newspapers
If smoke is observed, keep the oven door closed and switch off or disconnect the oven
from the power supply

Page 9
(continued)
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby foods.
◆ ALWAYS allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has been switched
off so that the temperature can equalize.
◆ Stir during heating, if necessary, and ALWAYS stir after heating.
◆ Take care when handling the container after heating. You may burn yourself, if the
container is too hot.
◆ A risk of delayed eruptive boiling exists.
◆ To prevent delayed boiling and possible scalding, you should put a plastic spoon or glass
stick into the beverages and stir before, during and after heating.
Reason: During the heating of liquids the boiling point can be delayed; this
means that eruptive boiling can start after the container is removed from the
oven. You may scald yourself.
◆ In the event of scalding, follow these FIRST AID instructions:
• Immerse the scalded area in cold water for at least 10 minutes.
• Cover with a clean, dry dressing.
• Do not apply any creams, oils or lotions.
◆ NEVER fill the container to the top and choose a container that is wider at the top than at
the bottom to prevent the liquid from boiling over. Bottles with narrow necks may also
explode if overheated.
◆ ALWAYS check the temperature of baby food or milk before giving it to the baby.
◆ NEVER heat a baby’s bottle with the teat on, as the bottle may explode if overheated.
GB
Be careful not to damage the power cable.
◆ Do not immerse the power cable or plug in water and keep the power cable away from
heated surfaces.
◆ Do not operate this appliance if it has a damaged power cable or plug.
10. Stand at arm’s length from the oven when opening the door.
Reason: The hot air or steam released may cause scalding.
11. Keep the inside of the oven clean.
Reason: Food particles or spattered oils stuck to oven walls or floor can cause paint
damage and reduce the efficiency of the oven.
12. “Clicking” sound might be noticed while operating, especially when the oven is in defrosting
mode.
Reason: When the electrical power output is changing, you may hear that sound.
This is normal.
13. When the microwave oven is operating without any load, the power will be cut off automatically for safety. You can operate the oven normally after letting it stand for over 30 minutes.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
During cooking, you should look into the oven from time to time when food is being heated or
cooked in disposable containers of plastic, paper or other combustible materials.
IMPORTANT
Young children should NEVER be allowed to use or play with the microwave oven. Nor should
they be left unattended near the microwave oven when it is in use. Items of interest to children
should not be stored or hidden just above the oven.

Never block the air vents as the oven may overheat and automatically switch itself off. It will
remain inoperable until it has cooled sufficiently.
For your personal safety, plug the cable into a 3-pin, 230 Volt, 50Hz, AC earthed socket. If
the power cable of this appliance is damaged, it must be replaced by a special cable
(I-SHENG SP022, KDK KKP4819D, EUROELECTRIC 3410,SAMIL SP-106B, MOONSUNG
EP-48E). Contact your local dealer to have it replaced. The power cable of ISRAEL is
PENCON(ZD16A), S/AFRICA APEX LEADS SA16 and NIGERIA, GHANA, KENYA and
U.A.E is PENCON(UD13A1).
Do not install the microwave oven in hot or damp surroundings like next to a traditional oven
or radiator. The power supply specifications of the oven must be respected and any
extension cable used must be of the same standard as the power cable supplied with the
oven. Wipe the interior and the door seal with a damp cloth before using your microwave
oven for the first time.

How a Microwave Oven Works
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy released
enables food to be cooked or reheated without changing either the form or the
colour.
GB
You can use your microwave oven to:
◆ Defrost
◆ Instant Reheat/Cook
◆ Cook
Cooking Principle
1 The microwaves generated by the magnetron are distributed uniformly as the
food rotates on the turntable. The food is thus cooked evenly.
2 The microwaves are absorbed by the food up to a depth of about
1 inch (2.5 cm). Cooking then continues as the heat is dissipated
within the food.
3 Cooking times vary according to the recipient used and the properties of the
food:
◆
◆
◆
☛
Quantity and density
Water content
Initial temperature (refrigerated or not)
As the centre of the food is cooked by heat dissipation, cooking
continues even when you have taken the food out of the oven.
Standing times specified in recipes and in this booklet must
therefore be respected to ensure:
◆ Even cooking of the food right to the centre
◆ The same temperature throughout the food

Using the Crusty Plate (CE2D33T)
Your Samsung microwave oven has a crusty plate as an additional accessory.
This crusty plate allows you to brown food not only on the top with the grill,
but also the bottom of the food turns crispy and brown due to the high temperature of the crusty plate. Several items which you can prepare on the crusty plate
can be found in the chart (see next page).
GB
The crusty plate can also be used for bacon, eggs, sausages, etc.
1 Place the crusty plate directly on the turntable and preheat it with highest
Microwave-Grill-Combination[600W+Grill(
)] by following the times and
instructions in the chart..
☛ Always use oven gloves to take out the crusty plate, as it is becomming very
hot.
2 Brush the plate with oil if you are cooking food, such as bacon and eggs, in
order to brown the food nicely.
✽ - Please note that the crusty plate has a teflon layer which is not scratch-resis
tant. Do not use any sharp objects like a knife to cut on the crusty plate.
- Use plastic accessories to avoid acratches on the surface of the crusty plate
or remove the food from the plate before cutting
3 Place the food on the crusty plate.
☛
- Do not place any objects on the crusty plate that are not heat-resistant;
e.g. plastic bowels.
- Never place the crusty plate in the oven without turntable.
4 Place the crusty plate on the metal rack(or turntable) in the microwave.
5 Select the appropriate cooking time and power.
Refer to the table on the next page.

Cooking Guide
MICROWAVES
GB
Microwave energy actually penetrates food, attracted and absorbed by its water, fat
and sugar content.
The microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move rapidly. The rapid movement of these molecules creates friction and the resulting heat cooks the food.
COOKING
Cookware for microwave cooking:
Cookware must allow microwave energy to pass through it for maximum efficiency.
Microwaves are reflected by metal, such as stainless steel, aluminium and copper, but
they can penetrate through ceramic, glass, porcelain and plastic as well as paper and
wood. So food must never be cooked in metal containers.
Food suitable for microwave cooking:
Many kinds of food are suitable for microwave cooking, including fresh or frozen vegetables, fruit, pasta, rice, grains, beans, fish, and meat. Sauces, custard, soups,
steamed puddings, preserves, and chutneys can also be cooked in a microwave oven.
Generally speaking, microwave cooking is ideal for any food that would normally be
prepared on a hob. Melting butter or chocolate, for example (see the chapter with tips,
techniques and hints).
Covering during cooking
To cover the food during cooking is very important, as the evaporated water rises as
steam and contributes to cooking process.
Food can be covered in different ways: e.g. with a ceramic plate, plastic cover or
microwave suitable cling film.
Standing times
After cooking is over food the standing time is important to allow the temperature to
even out within the food.
Cooking Guide for frozen vegetables
Use a suitable glass pyrex bowl with lid. Cook covered for the minimum time – see
table. Continue cooking to get the result you prefer.
Stir twice during cooking and once after cooking. Add salt, herbs or butter after cooking. Cover
during standing time.

Cooking Guide
REHEATING
Your microwave oven will reheat food in a fraction of the time that conventional ovens
hobs normally take.
Use the power levels and reheating times in the following chart as a guide. The times in
the chart consider liquids with a room temperature of about +18 to +20°C or a chilled
food with a temperature of about +5 to +7°C.
GB
Arranging and covering
Avoid reheating large items such as joint of meat - they tend to overcook and dry out
before the centre is piping hot. Reheating small pieces will be more successful.
Power levels and stirring
Some foods can be reheated using 900 W power while others should be reheated using
600 W, 450 W or even 300 W.
Check the tables for guidance. In general, it is better to reheat food using a lower power
level, if the food is delicate, in large quantities, or if it is likely to heat up very quickly
(mince pies, for example).
Stir well or turn food over during reheating for best results. When possible, stir again
before serving.
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby foods. To prevent eruptive boiling of
liquids and possible scalding , stir before, during and after heating. Keep them in the
microwave oven during standing time. We recommend putting a plastic spoon or glass
stick into the liquids. Avoid overheating (and therefore spoiling) the food.
It is preferable to underestimate cooking time and add extra heating time, if necessary.
Heating and standing times
When reheating food for the first time, it is helpful to make a note of the time taken - for
future reference.
Always make sure that the reheated food is piping hot throughout.
Allow food to stand for a short time after reheating - to let the temperature even out.
The recommended standing time after reheating is 2-4 minutes, unless another time is
recommended in the chart..
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby food. See also the chapter with the
safety precautions.
REHEATING LIQUIDS
Always allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has been switched off
to allow the temperature to even out. Stir during heating, if necessary, and ALWAYS stir
after heating. To prevent eruptive boiling and possible scalding, you should put a spoon
or glass stick into the beverages and stir before, during and after heating.
REHEATING BABY FOOD
BABY FOOD: Empty into a deep ceramic plate. Cover with plastic lid. Stir well after
reheating! Let stand for 2-3 minutes before serving. Stir again and check
the temperature. Recommended serving temperature: between 30-40°C.
BABY MILK: Pour milk into a sterilised glass bottle. Reheat uncovered. Never heat a
baby’s bottle with teat on, as the bottle may explode if overheated. Shake
well before standing time and again before serving ! Always carefully
check the temperature of baby milk or food before giving it to the baby.
Recommended serving temperature: ca. 37°C.
REMARK:
Baby food particularly needs to be checked carefully before serving to prevent burns.
Use the power levels and times in the next table as a guide lines for reheating.

DEFROSTING
GB
Microwaves are an excellent way of defrosting frozen food. Microwaves gently defrost
frozen food in a short period of time. This can be of great advantage, if unexpected
guests suddenly show up.
Frozen poultry must be thoroughly thawed before cooking. Remove any metal ties and
take it out of any wrapping to allow thawed liquid to drain away.
Put the frozen food on a dish without cover. Turn over halfway, drain off any liquid and
remove any giblets as soon as possible.
Check the food occasionally to make sure that it does not feel warm.
If smaller and thinner parts of the frozen food start to warm up, they can be shield by
wrapping very small strips of aluminium foil around them during defrosting.
Should poultry start to warm up on the outer surface, stop thawing and allow it to
stand for 20 minutes before continuing.
Leave the fish, meat and poultry to stand in order to complete defrosting. The standing
time for complete defrosting will vary depending on the quantity defrosted. Please refer
to the table below.
Hint: Flat food defrosts better than thick and smaller quantities need less time than
bigger ones. Remember this hint while freezing and defrosting food.
For defrosting of frozen food with a temperature of about -18 to - 20 °C, use the following table as a guide.
All frozen food should be defrosted using defrosting power level (180 W).

GRILL
GB
The grill-heating element is located underneath the ceiling of the cavity. It operates
while the door is closed and the turntable is rotating. The turntable’s rotation makes the
food brown more evenly. Preheating the grill for 4 minutes will make the food brown
more quickly.
Cookware for grilling:
Should be flameproof and may include metal. Do not use any type of plastic cookware,
as it can melt.
Food suitable for grilling:
Chops, sausages, steaks, hamburgers, bacon and gammon rashers, thin fish portions,
sandwiches and all kinds of toast with toppings.
IMPORTANT REMARK:
Whenever the grill only mode is used, make sure that the grill-heating element is under
the ceiling in the horizontal position and not on the back-wall in the vertical position.
Please remember that food must be placed on the high rack, unless another instruction
is recommended.
MICROWAVE + GRILL
This cooking mode combines the radiant heat that is coming from the grill with the
speed of microwave cooking. It operates only while the door is closed and the turntable
is rotating. Due to the rotation of the turntable, the food browns evenly. Three combination modes are available with this model:
600 W + Grill, 450 W + Grill and 300 W + Grill.
Cookware for cooking with microwave + grill
Please use cookware that microwaves can pass through. Cookware should be flameproof. Do not use metal cookware with combination mode. Do not use any type of plastic cookware, as it can melt.
Food suitable for microwave + grill cooking:
Food suitable for combination mode cooking include all kinds of cooked food which
need reheating and browning (e.g. baked pasta), as well as foods which require a short
cooking time to brown the top of the food. Also, this mode can be used for thick food
portions that benefit from a browned and crispy top (e.g. chicken pieces, turning them
over half way through cooking). Please refer to the grill table for further details.
IMPORTANT REMARK:
Whenever the combination mode (microwave + grill) is used, make sure that the grill
heating element is under the ceiling in the horizontal position and not on the back-wall
in the vertical position. The food should be placed on the high rack, unless another
instruction is recommended. Otherwise it has to be placed directly on the turntable.
Please refer to the instructions in the following chart.
The food must be turned over, if it is to be browned on both sides.
