SAFETY INFORMATION
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 220 V,
60 Hz, with a minimum 16 A distribution line
fuse, or a minimum 16 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.
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.

ENGLISH
Never adjust, repair or
modify the oven yourself. It
is hazardous for anyone
other than a competent
person to carry out any
service or repair operation
which involves the removal
of a cover which gives
protection against exposure
to microwave energy.
Do not operate the oven with the door open or
alter the door safety latches in any way. Do not
operate the oven if there is an object between
the door seals and sealing surfaces.
Do not allow grease or dirt to
build up on the door seals
and adjacent parts. Follow
the instructions for “Care &
cleaning”. 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.
Individuals with PACEMAKERS should check
with their doctor or the manufacturer of the
pacemaker for precautions regarding
microwave ovens.
To avoid the possibility of electric shock
Under no circumstances should you remove the
outer cabinet. Never spill or insert any objects
into the door lock openings or ventilation
openings. In the event of a spill, turn off and
unplug the oven immediately and call an
authorised AEG service agent. Do not immerse
the power supply cord or plug in water or any
other liquid. Do not allow the power supply cord
to run over any hot or sharp surfaces, such as
the hot air vent area at the top rear of the oven.
Do not attempt to replace
the oven lamp yourself or
allow anyone who is not
authorised by AEG to do
so. If the oven lamp fails,
please consult your dealer
or call an authorised AEG
service agent.
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.
www.aeg.com
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.
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.
Temperature of the container is not a true
indication of the temperature of the food or drink;
always check the food temperature. Always
stand back from the oven door when opening to
avoid burns from escaping steam and heat. Slice
stuffed baked foods after heating to release
steam and avoid burns.

Other warnings
Never modify the oven in any way. This oven is
for home food preparation only and may only be
used for cooking food. It is not suitable for
commercial or laboratory use.
To promote trouble-free use of your oven
and avoid damage
Never operate the oven when it is empty except
where recommended in the operation manual,
see page 47 note 2. Doing so may damage the
oven. When using a browning dish or selfheating material, always place a heat-resistant
insulator such as a porcelain plate under it to
prevent damage to the turntable and turntable
support due to heat stress. The preheating time
specified in the dish’s instructions must not be
exceeded. Do not use metal utensils, which
reflect microwaves and may cause electrical
arcing. Do not put cans in the oven. Only use the
turntable and the turntable support designed for
this oven. Do not operate the oven without the
turntable.
To prevent the turntable from breaking:
a) Before cleaning the turntable with water, leave
the turntable to cool.
b) Do not put hot foods or hot utensils on a cold
turntable.
c) Do not put cold foods or cold utensils on a
hot turntable.
Do not place anything on the outer cabinet
during operation. Do not use plastic containers
for microwaving if the oven is still hot from using
the GRILL mode, DUAL GRILL mode and AUTO
COOK operation because they may melt. Plastic
containers must not be used during above
modes unless the container manufacturer says
they are suitable.
Important!
If you are unsure how to connect your oven,
please consult an authorised, qualified
electrician. Neither the manufacturer nor the
dealer can accept any liability for damage to the
oven or personal injury resulting from failure to
observe the correct electrical connection
procedure. Water vapour or drops may
occasionally form on the oven walls or around
the door seals and sealing surfaces. This is a
normal occurrence and is not an indication of
microwave leakage or a malfunction.

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

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.
