ABOUT YOUR OVEN
Be aware that, unlike microwave-only ovens, Super
Steam Ovens have a tendency to become hot during
cooking with SuperSteam Convection, Convection
or Steam.
This Operation Manual is valuable: read it carefully and
always save it for reference.
The Sharp SuperSteam Oven Cookbook is a
valuable asset. Check it frequently for cooking
principles, techniques, hints and recipes.
The oven is for food preparation only. It should not be
used to dry clothes or newspapers.
ABOUT COOKING OPTIONS
Your oven has a variety of cooking options that are divided into automatic and manual. SuperSteam Convection,
Steam and Microwave have both automatic and manual choices. Convection has only manual.
SuperSteam Convection
SuperSteam is combined with convection heating, which can roast or broil foods and allow excess fats to be
removed. These foods retain moisture. Meats and poultry are brown, juicy and flavorful.
Steam
Steam-only gently cooks foods such as vegetables, fish, seafood and poached eggs while retaining moisture,
natural flavors and nutrients.
Convection
Convection browns, bakes, broils and crisps a wide variety of foods. Cookies, cakes, breads, muffins, biscuits and
rolls can be baked on one or two levels. There are no automatic settings for convection. Refer to your SuperSteam
Cookbook or to Convection in Manual Operations.
Microwave
Microwave is fast and convenient for cooking, defrosting and popping popcorn. With Sensor Reheat, Sensor Cook
and Sensor Popcorn, it is unnecessary to enter amount. The sensor eliminates guesswork.

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
DISH CHECK. If you wish to check if a dish is safe for microwaving, place the empty dish in the oven and microwave
on 100% power for 30 seconds. If the dish becomes very hot, do NOT use it for microwaving.
ACCESSORIES There are many microwave or heat-resistant accessories available for purchase. Evaluate
carefully before you purchase so that they meet your needs. A microwave-safe thermometer will assist you in
determining correct doneness and assure you that foods have been cooked to safe temperatures when using
microwave-only cooking. Sharp is not responsible for any damage to the oven when accessories are used.
For automatic cooking, use the recommended container in the cooking chart in this operation manual or the
cookbook.
ABOUT SUPER STEAM CONVECTION AND STEAM COOKING
There are certain techniques for cooking with steam. It is essential that these techniques are followed for good
results. Many of them are similar to those used in conventional cooking so may require little change. Note information
in all of the charts in the cookbook for all cooking options that use SuperSteam Convection (Roast, Convenience
Foods, Broil) and Steam (Cook, Reheat, Keep Warm and Proof).
•
•
•
•
•
Always attend the oven when in use.
Use utensils/cookware suitable for the cooking mode as described on page 6.
Ventilate the room to allow the steam to dissipate.
Refer to the charts in the SuperSteam Oven Cookbook for recommended cooking settings and times.
After cooking and the oven has cooled, remove and empty the reservoir, wipe oven cavity with a soft
cloth or sponge. Wait a few minutes, then empty the drip tray.
FOR STEAM COOKING
Cooking Techniques
Baking Tray •
High Rack •
Steam Basket
Place food in steam basket on high rack in baking tray so steam reaches all sides
and cooking is even. For faster cooking, use upper level in oven. Foods crowded
together will take longer to cook, so position with enough space between items to
allow the steam to circulate.
Covering
Covering is not necessary in most cases. If a cover is required, aluminum foil is
recommended to keep food from becoming wet.
Door
For accurate cooking times, keep the door closed.
Stir
Sometimes soups or casseroles reheated without covering look watery after cooking.
Appearance will be better if stirred well.
Stand
Standing time is recommended after cooking to allow heat to disperse equally throughout the food. Do not allow to stand in the oven for a long time; food may be overcooked or wet from the residual steam.
Cooking Hints
Blanching
Steam mode can be used to blanch vegetables to prepare them for freezing.
Place the prepared vegetables in the steam basket on the high rack in the baking tray.
Use upper level in oven. Press Steam, MANUAL and desired time 4 - 5 minutes. Press
START. After steaming, put in cold water to cool quickly. Drain and then freeze.

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
FOR SUPER STEAM CONVECTION AND STEAM COOKING
Food Characteristics
Density
Food density will affect the amount of cooking time. Cut the food into thinner parts, if
possible, and arrange in single layer.
Quantity
The cooking time must be increased as the amount increases.
Size
Small foods and small pieces cook faster than large ones, as heat can penetrate from all
sides to the center. For even cooking make all the pieces the same size.
Shape
Foods which are irregular in shape, such as chicken breasts or drumsticks, may take
longer to cook in the thicker parts. Check that these parts are cooked thoroughly before
serving.
Temperature of Food
The initial temperature of food affects the cooking time. Chilled foods will take longer to
cook than foods at room temperature. The temperature of the container is not the actual
temperature of the food or drink.
Seasoning and
Flavoring
Seasoning or flavoring are best added after cooking. If added as marinades or rubs, the
taste may become less pronounced when cooking with steam. Add seasoning or flavoring again after cooking, if necessary.
• Check that food is thoroughly cooked/reheated before serving.
• Cooking time will be affected by the shape, depth, quantity and temperature of food together with the size, shape
and material of the container.
• Never heat oil or fat for deep frying as this may lead to overheating and fire.
CAUTION:
Always use dry pot holders or oven mitts to remove food or utensils from the oven. Be careful when
opening the oven door to allow steam to dissipate.
ABOUT MICROWAVE COOKING
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
ALWAYS have food in the oven when it is on to
absorb the microwave energy.
Your oven is rated 700 watts using the IEC Test
Procedure. In using recipes or package directions,
check food at the minimum time and add time
accordingly.
Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking.
Room humidity and the moisture in food will influence
the amount of moisture that condenses in the oven.
Generally, covered foods will not cause as much
condensation as uncovered ones. Vents on the
oven back must not be blocked.
Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas toward
outside of dish.
Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount
of time indicated and add more as needed. Foods
severely overcooked can smoke or ignite.
Cover foods while cooking. Check recipe or
cookbook for suggestions: paper towels, wax paper,
microwave plastic wrap or a lid. Covers prevent
spattering and help foods to cook evenly.
Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum foil any
thin areas of meat or poultry to prevent overcooking
before dense, thick areas are cooked thoroughly.
*
*
*
*
*
8
Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or
twice during cooking, if possible.
Turn foods over once during microwaving to speed
cooking of such foods as chicken and hamburgers.
Large items like roasts or turkey breasts must be
turned over at least once.
Rearrange foods like meatballs halfway through
cooking both from top to bottom and from the center
of the dish to the outside.
Add standing time. Remove food from oven and
stir, if possible. Cover for standing time which
allows the food to finish cooking without overcooking.
Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating that
cooking temperatures have been reached.
Doneness signs include:
– Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
– Center bottom of dish is very hot to the
touch.
– Poultry thigh joints move easily.
– Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
– Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

• Do not touch the plug with wet hands when inserting
or removing from the outlet. Plug securely into the
electric wall receptacle and remove by gripping on
the plug end. Never pull using just the cord.
To test for doneness, insert a meat thermometer in a
thick or dense area away from fat or bone. NEVER
leave the thermometer in the food during cooking,
unless it is approved for microwave oven use.
• Accessible parts (e.g. oven door, oven cavity, dishes
and accessories) may become hot during use. Use
dry pot holders or oven mitts when removing
container, food and oven accessories from the oven
and be careful not to touch the oven cavity to prevent
burns.
• Use care when opening door. Avoid steam burns by
directing steam away from the face and hands.
Always stand back from the oven when opening it.
• Slowly lift the farthest edge of a dish’s covering and
carefully open popcorn and oven cooking bags
away from the face.
• Stay near the oven while it's in use and check
cooking progress frequently so that there is no
chance of overcooking food.
• NEVER use the cavity for storing cookbooks or
other items.
• Select, store and handle food carefully to preserve
its high quality and minimize the spread of foodborne
bacteria.
• Use care when removing items from the oven so
that the utensil, your clothes or accessories do not
touch the door projection.
• Do not touch around the oven light. This part will
become hot when the oven light is on.
• To avoid burns, always be careful of splashing
grease from the baking tray when removing roasted
or broiled meats from the oven.
• To avoid burns, always test food and container
temperature and stir before serving. Pay special
attention to the temperature of containers, foods
and drinks. Do not drink beverage or soup without
checking the container’s temperature.
• Do not touch the oven door, outer cabinet, rear
cabinet, oven cavity, ventilation openings,
accessories, dishes and the escaping steam from
the air vent openings during operation because they
will become hot.
• Do not operate the oven if reservoir cracks and
water leaks. Call 1-800-BE-SHARP to purchase a
replacement part.

NOTES:
1. Do not use distilled water or any other liquid.
2. An insufficient amount of water in the reservoir may
cause an undesired result.
3. We recommend that you empty the reservoir every
time after cooking. Do not leave the reservoir filled
with water in the oven over a day.
4. If any messages, such as “ Fill water reservoir”,
are as shown in the display during cooking, refer to
Troubleshooting Chart on page 38.
5. Do not drop or damage the reservoir. Heat may
cause the reservoir to change shape. Do not use a
damaged reservoir. Call 1-800-BE-SHARP to
purchase a replacement.
6. There may be a few water drops when removing
the reservoir. Wipe the oven dry with a soft cloth.
7. Do not block the air holes on the lid of the reservoir.
It will cause trouble during cooking.
8. A small amount of water will drain into the drip tray
when the reservoir is removed. Empty after cooking.
To fill the reservoir with fresh cold tap water is a
must for SuperSteam Convection and Steam in both
Automatic and Manual Cooking. Be sure to follow
the directions below.
1. Pull the reservoir toward you to remove.
2. Wash the reservoir and lid for the first time. (Figure
1)
3. Fill the reservoir with fresh cold tap water through

Covering Foods:
Some foods work best when covered. Use the cover
recommended in the Sensor Cook Chart for these
foods.
1. Casserole lid.
2. Plastic wrap: Use plastic wrap recommended for
microwave cooking. Cover dish loosely; allow
approximately 1/2-inch to remain uncovered to allow
steam to escape. Plastic wrap should not touch food.
3. Wax paper: Cover dish completely; fold excess wrap
under dish to secure. If dish is wider than paper,overlap
two pieces at least one inch to cover.
Be careful when removing any covering to allow
steam to escape away from you.
Microwave has 3 sensor options, Sensor Reheat,
Sensor Cook and Sensor Popcorn and 2 non-sensor
options, Reheat and Defrost. Refer to the each Chart in
Microwave for details.
NOTES:
1. After cooking, the display may show "Now cooling".
The oven will automatically cool and you will hear the
sound of the cooling fan. The fan may continue to
operate up to 13 minutes depending on the oven and
parts temperature.
2. Do not use the baking tray and metal racks.
MICROWAVE COOKING WITH SENSOR
Sharp's Sensor is a semi-conductor device that detects
the vapor (moisture and humidity) emitted from the food
as it heats. The sensor adjusts the cooking times and
power level for various foods and quantities.
Using Sensor Settings:
1. After the oven is plugged in, wait 2 minutes before
cooking with Sensor function.
2. Be sure the exterior of the cooking container and the
interior of the oven are dry. Wipe off any moisture with
a dry cloth or paper towel.
3. The oven works with foods at normal storage
temperature. For example, popcorn would be at
room temperature.
4. Any Sensor Cook selection can be programmed with
More or Less Time Adjustment. See page 33.
5. More or less food than the quantity listed in the chart
should be cooked following the guidelines in any
microwave cookbook.
6. During the first part of cooking with Sensor function,
SENSING will appear on the display. Do not open the
oven door or press Stop/Clear during this part of the
cooking cycle. The measurement of vapor will be
interrupted. If this occurs, an error message will
appear. To continue cooking, press Stop/Clear and
cook manually. When the sensor detects the vapor
emitted from the food, the remainder of cooking time
will appear.The door may be opened when remaining
cooking time appears in the display. At this time, you
may stir or season food, as desired.
7. If the sensor does not detect vapor properly, Error will
be displayed, and the oven will turn off.
8. Check food for temperature or doneness after cooking.
If food is not completely cooked, enter additional
cooking time manually. Do not repeat cooking with
Sensor function again as food may overcook.

CLEANING AND CARE
CLEAN THE OVEN REGULARLY. Spatters and
residue remaining from prolonged use, especially at
high temperatures, are hard to clean and may interfere
with good oven operation as well as decrease the
useful life of the oven.
Oven Cleaning - Interior
STEAM CLEAN
The Steam Clean function helps to loosen any grease,
oil or food residue. The steam will make the oven easy
to clean; however, it is not a self-cleaning function. It will
take approximately 20 minutes for the cleaning cycle.
PREPARATION
1. Make sure that the reservoir is filled with fresh cold
tap water and is installed. (See page 13.)
2. Make sure that the empty drip tray is installed. (See
page 13.)
IMPORTANT CAUTIONS:
• DISCONNECT THE POWER CORD IF POSSIBLE.
• ALLOW THE OVEN TO COOL BEFORE
CLEANING.
• DO NOT USE OVEN CLEANERS OR HARSH
SCOURING PADS ON ANY PART OF THE OVEN.
• DO NOT USE A STEAM CLEANER.
PROCEDURE
Oven Cleaning - Exterior
Prepare a solution of mild soap and water, immerse a
soft cloth or sponge into the solution and wring dry.
Wipe exterior. Do not use any type of harsh abrasive
cleaner. Rinse cloth or sponge in warm water and wring
dry. Wipe exterior again and polish dry.
Door
Wipe the window on both sides with a damp cloth to
remove any spills or spatters. Metal parts will be easier
to maintain if wiped frequently with a soft damp cloth.
Avoid the use of spray and other harsh cleaners as
they may stain, streak or dull the door surface. When
cleaning surfaces of door and oven that come together
on closing the door, use only mild, non abrasive soaps,
or detergents applied with a sponge or soft cloth.
1
Press Back/Info, turn
the Dial to select
STEAM CLEAN and
press Enter.
2
Press START.
Allow the oven to cool to prevent burns. Then open the
door and remove any residue carefully with soft, damp
cloth. Finally, remove and empty the reservoir. Wait a
few minutes, then empty the drip tray.
To clean the interior surfaces, wipe with a soft cloth and
warm water.
1. After every use while the oven is still warm, wipe
spatters or spills with a soft damp cloth or sponge.
DO NOT USE ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS
OR SCOURING PADS. For heavier soil, use mild
soap; rinse thoroughly with hot water. Carry out Steam
Clean function to clean thoroughly.
2. The cleaning cloth or sponge must be wrung dry to
prevent moisture or residue from entering the oven
vents.
3. Do not use spray type cleaners on the oven interior.
4. Any remaining food or fat could cause smoke or an
unpleasant smell. It is a good idea to heat the oven
with SuperSteam Convection Broil in manual
operation for 20 minutes without preheat and food to
remove any fat or residue from the interior ducts and
heaters and unpleasant smell. See CLEAN THE
OVEN BEFORE FIRST USE on page 16
Control Panel
Care should be taken in cleaning the control panel. If
the control panel becomes soiled, open the oven door
before cleaning. Wipe the panel with a cloth dampened
slightly with water only. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not
scrub or use any sort of chemical cleaners. Close the
door and press Stop/Clear.
36
CLEANING AND CARE
Door Gasket
Reservoir and Reservoir Lid
The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Always
keep the gasket clean to prevent any damage. If water
condenses inside the door gasket, wipe dry with a soft
cloth. Polish with another soft cloth. Do not use a
chemical or abrasive cleaner on these surfaces. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage, pull or move the
gasket. Before cooking, always check that door gasket
is lying smooth and flat. If not, steam will leak from the
door. Do not use SuperSteam Oven if it has a damaged
door gasket as steam would not be contained in the
oven. Consult a Sharp Authorized Service.
After cooking, wash in a mild soap or detergent solution
with a soft damp cloth or sponge, rinse and polish dry.
Do not wash in the dishwasher. Note the filter in the
rear bottom of the reservoir. Use a very soft brush to
remove any build-up in the filter. The filter cannot be
removed nor replaced so special care should be taken
not to tear the mesh of the filter when cleaning it. Do
not use harsh cleaners, sharp metal scrapers or stiff
brushes on the reservoir, reservoir lid and reservoir filter.
Do not use a torn filter. Order replacement. See inside
front cover.
Baking Tray / High Rack / Low Rack / Steam
Basket
Drip Tray and Drip Tray Lid
Empty drip tray after cooking, wash in a mild soap or
detergent solution with a soft damp cloth or sponge,
rinse, polish dry and replace below the oven front. Do
not wash in the dishwasher.
Wash baking tray, high rack, low rack and steam basket
after cooking with a mild soap or detergent solution,
rinsing and polishing dry. Do not use harsh cleaners,
sharp metal scrapers or stiff brushes to prevent damage
to the easy clean surface. All the accessories can be
washed in the dishwasher. Place them on the top rack
in the dishwasher.
Descaling within the Oven’s Steam Parts
During steam production, scale may form in the steam
generator. To remove scale, carry out descale function
when DESCALING IS NECESSARY. is shown in the
