Before you start
Sound On/Off
About microwave energy
You can turn on or off the key tone, beep, or alarm. This setting is available only in
the Standby state (when the current time is displayed).
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves. The oven uses its built-in
magnetron to generate microwaves which cook or reheat food without deforming
or discolouring the food.
To mute the sound, hold down for
3 seconds. “OFF” appears on the display.
1. The microwaves generated by the
magnetron are distributed uniformly by
the whirling distribution system. This is
why the food is cooked evenly.
2. The microwaves are absorbed into the
food up to a depth of approximately
1 inch (2.5 cm). Then, the microwaves
are dissipated inside the food as
cooking continues.
3. The cooking time is affected by the
following conditions of the food:
• Quantity and density
• Moisture content
• Initial temperature (especially,
when frozen)
To unmute the sound, hold down again for
3 seconds. “ON” appears on the display.
Before you start
NOTE

Crusty plate
Power Convection guide
We recommend you to preheat the crusty plate while it’s on the turntable for 3-4
minutes.
Cooking with Power Convection is a powerful combination of the inner grill heater
and the convection ring heater with fan at side. The hot air blows from the top of
the cavity through holes into the oven. The heating element at top and side and
the fan at the side-wall, keeps the hot air circulating evenly.
Use this mode for biscuits, individual scones, rolls, and cakes as well as fruit cakes,
choux, and soufflés. Before cooking, preheat with guided temperatures.
All conventional ovenproof cookware, baking tins and sheets – anything you would
normally use in a traditional convection oven – can be used.
