IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Important safety instructions: Read carefully and
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.
The AC power supply must be 240 V, 50 Hz, with a minimum 15 A distribution line fuse, or
a minimum 15 A distribution circuit breaker.
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.

If the power supply cord of this appliance is damaged, it must be replaced with a special cord. The
exchange must be made by an authorised AEG service agent.
To avoid the possibility of explosion and sudden boiling
Warning!
Liquids and other foods must not be heated in sealed containers since they are liable to
explode.
Never use sealed containers. Remove seals and lids before use. Sealed containers can
explode due to a build up of pressure even after the oven has been turned off.
Take care when microwaving liquids. Use a wide-mouthed container to allow bubbles to
escape.
Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed eruptive boiling, therefore care has
to be taken when handling the container.
To prevent sudden eruption of boiling liquid and possible scalding:
1. Stir liquid prior to heating/reheating.
2. It is advisable to insert a glass rod or similar utensil into the liquid whilst reheating.
3. Let liquid stand for at least 20 seconds in the oven at the end of cooking time to prevent
delayed eruptive boiling.
Do not cook eggs in their shells, 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.
Important safety instructions
5
Pierce the skin of such foods as potatoes, sausages and fruit before cooking, or they may
explode.
To avoid the possibility of burns
Use pot holders or oven gloves when removing food from the oven to prevent burns.
Always open containers, popcorn makers, oven cooking bags, etc., away from the face and
hands to avoid steam burns.
To avoid burns, always test food temperature and stir before serving and pay special
attention to the temperature of food and drink given to babies, children or the elderly.

MICROWAVE COOKING ADVICE
Microwave cooking
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 foods will
of food
take longer to cook than food at room temperature. Cut into foods with fillings, (e.g. jam
doughnuts), to release heat or steam.
Microwave cooking advice
11
Cooking techniques
Arrange
Cover
Pierce
Place the thickest parts of food towards the outside of the dish (e.g. chicken drumsticks).
Use vented microwave cling film or a suitable lid.
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 stir and
rearrange
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).

Suggested use
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.
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.
To defrost, select this power setting, to ensure that the dish defrosts evenly. This
setting is also ideal for simmering rice, pasta, dumplings and cooking egg custard.
For gentle defrosting, (e.g. cream gateaux or pastry).
For standing/kitchen timer.

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.
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.

Care & cleaning
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 cleaned easily with mild soap and water. Make sure 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 de-activate the control panel. Care should be taken when 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 splatters or spills with a soft damp cloth or sponge after each use while the
oven is still warm. For heavier spills, use a mild soap and wipe several times with a damp cloth
until all residues are removed. Do not remove the waveguide cover.
2. Make sure that mild soap or water does 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 sealing 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 racks are
dishwasher safe.
Important: A steam cleaner should not be used.
REDUCED POWER LEVEL
Important:
If you cook the food over the standard time with only the same cooking mode, the power of the
oven will lower automatically to avoid overheating. (The microwave power level will be reduced
or the grill heating element will begin to light on and off.) After pausing for 90 seconds, full
power can be reset.
