MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS

Amount of food

• If you increase or decrease the amount of food you prepare, the time it takes to cook that food will also change. For example, if you double a recipe, add a little more than half the original cooking time. Check for doneness and, if necessary, add more time in small increments.

Starting temperature of food

• The lower the temperature of the food being put into the microwave oven, the longer it takes to cook. Food at room temperature will be re-heated more quickly than food at refrigerator temperature.

Composition of food

• Food with a lot of fat and sugar will be heated faster than food containing a lot of water. Fat and sugar will also reach a higher temperature than water in the cooking process.

• The more dense the food, the longer it takes to heat.

Very dense food like meat takes longer to heat than lighter, more porous food like sponge cakes.

Size and shape

• Smaller pieces of food will cook faster than larger pieces. Also, same-shaped pieces cook more evenly than different-shaped pieces.

• With foods that have different thicknesses, the thinner parts will cook faster than the thicker parts.

Place the thinner parts of chicken wings and legs in the center of the dish.

Stirring, turning foods

• Stirring and turning foods spreads heat quickly to the center of the dish and avoids overcooking at the outer edges of the food.

Covering food

Cover food to:

• Reduce splattering

• Shorten cooking times

• Keep food moist

Releasing pressure in foods

• Several foods (for example: baked potatoes, sausages, egg yolks, and some fruits) are tightly covered by a skin or membrane. Steam can build up under the membrane during cooking, causing the food to burst. To relieve the pressure and to prevent bursting, pierce these foods before cooking with a fork, cocktail pick, or toothpick.

Using standing time

• Always allow food to stand either in or out of the oven after cooking power stops. Standing time after defrosting and cooking allows the temperature to evenly spread throughout the food, improving the cooking results. For inside oven standing time, you can program a 0 power second stage of the cooking cycle. See cooking with more than one cook cycle cooking.

• The length of the standing time depends on how much food you are cooking and how dense it is.

Sometimes it can be as short as the time it takes you to remove the food from the oven and take it to the serving table. However, with larger, denser food item, the standing time may be as long as 10 minutes.

Arranging food

For best results, place food evenly on the plate. You can do this in several ways:

• If you are cooking several items of the same food,

such as baked potatoes, place them in a ring pattern for uniform cooking.

• When cooking foods of uneven shapes or

thickness, such as chicken breasts, place the smaller or thinner area of the food towards the center of the dish where it will be heated last.

• Layer thin slices of meat on top of each other.

• When you cook or reheat whole fish, score the skin – this prevents cracking.

• Do not let food or a container touch the top or sides of the oven. This will prevent possible arcing.

MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS

Using aluminum foil

Metal containers should not be used in a microwave oven. There are, however, some exceptions. If you have purchased food which is prepackaged in an aluminum foil container, refer to the instructions on the package. When using aluminum foil containers, cooking times may be longer because microwaves will only penetrate the exposed top of the food and not the bottom or the sides. If you use aluminum containers without package instructions, follow these guidelines:

• Place the aluminum foil container in a glass bowl and add some Water so that it covers the bottom of the container, but not more than 1/4 in. (.64 cm) deep.

This ensures even heating of the container bottom.

• Always remove the container lid to avoid damage to the oven.

• Use only undamaged containers.

• Do not use containers taller than 3⁄4 in. (1.9 cm).

• Container must be at least half filled.

• To avoid arcing, there must be a minimum 1⁄4 in.

(64 mm) between the aluminum container and the walls of the oven and also between two aluminum containers.

• Always place the container on the turntable.

• Shield parts of food that may cook quickly, such as wing tips and leg ends of poultry, with small pieces of aluminum foil.

• Heating food in aluminum foil containers usually takes up to double the time compared to reheating in plastic, glass, china, or paper containers.

The time when food is ready will vary depending upon the type of container you use.

• Let food stand for 2 to 3 minutes after heating so that heat is spread evenly throughout the container.

Cooking you should not do in your microwave oven

• Do not do canning of foods in the oven. Closed glass jars may explode, resulting in damage to the oven.

• Do not use the microwave oven to sterilize objects

(baby bottles, etc.). It is difficult to keep the oven at the high temperature needed for sterilization.

Removing the rack

• When popping commercially packaged popcorn,

remove the rack and drip pan from the oven; Do not place the bag of microwave popcorn on the rack or under the rack. Leave the glass tray in place at all times.

CAUTION : Popping microwave popcorn with rack and drip pan can cause fire or damage to your microwave oven.

MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS

COOKING COMPARISON GUIDE

Cooking with your new oven offers a wide variety of food preparation options: microwave cooking, convection cooking, and combination cooking.

Microwave cooking uses very short, high-frequency radio waves. The movement of the microwaves through the food generates heat and cooks most foods faster than regular methods, while retaining their natural texture and moisture. Microwave cooking heats food directly, not the cookware or the interior of the oven.

Reheating is easy and defrosting is particularly convenient because less time is spent in food preparation.

Convection cooking constantly circulates heated air around the food, creating even browning and sealed-in flavor by the constant motion of hot air over the food surfaces.

Combination cooking combines microwave energy with convection to cook with speed and accuracy, while browning and crisping to perfection.

You can use microwave cooking, convection cooking, or combination cooking to cook by time. Simply preset the length of cooking time desired and your oven turns off automatically.

The following guide shows at a glance the difference between microwave, convection, and combination cooking.

MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS

COOKWARE GUIDE

Microwave Cooking

Most heat-resistant, nonmetallic cookware is safe for use in your microwave oven.

However, to test cookware before using, follow these steps:

1. Place the empty cookware in the microwave oven.

2. Measure 1 cup (250 ml) of water in a glass measuring cup and place it in the oven beside the cookware.

3. Microwave on 100% power for 1 minute. If the dish is warm, it should not be used for microwave cooking.

Convection Cooking

• Metal pans are recommended for all types of baked products, but especially where browning or crusting is important.

• Dark or dull-finish metal pans are best for breads and pies because they absorb heat and produce a crisper crust.

• Shiny aluminum pans are better for cakes, cookies, or muffins because these pans reflect heat and help produce a light, tender crust.

• Glass or glass-ceramic casserole or baking dishes are best suited for egg and cheese recipes due to the cleanability of glass.

Combination Cooking

• Glass or glass-ceramic baking containers are recommended. Do not use items with metal trim as it may cause arcing (sparking) with oven wall or oven rack, damaging the cookware, the rack, or the oven.

• Heat-resistant plastic microwave cookware (safe to

450°F (230°C) may be used, but is not recommended for foods that require crusting or all-around browning, because plastic is a poor conductor of heat.

OPERATION

AUTO DEFROST

Four defrost choices are preset in the oven. The defrost feature provides you with the best defrosting method for frozen foods, because the oven automatically sets the defrosting times for each food item according to the weight you enter. For added convenience, the AUTO

DEFROST includes a built-in tone mechanism that reminds you to check, turn over, separate, or rearrange the food during the defrost cycle. Four different defrosting options are provided.

1. MEAT

2. POULTRY

3. FISH

4. BREAD

After touching the AUTO DEFROST pad once, select the food category by touching number pad 1 (Meat),

2 (Poultry), 3 (Fish), or 4 (Bread). Available weight ranges for Meat, Poultry, and Fish are 0.1 to 6.0 lbs.

(0.1 to 4.0 kg). The available weight range for Bread is

0.1 to 1.0 lb. (0.1 to 0.5 kg).

For best results:

• Remove fish, shellfish, meat, and poultry from its original closed paper or plastic package (wrapper).

Otherwise, the wrap will hold steam and juice close to the foods, which can cause the outer surface of the foods to cook.

• Form the meat into the shape of a doughnut before freezing. When defrosting, scrape off thawed meat when the beep sounds and continue defrosting.

• Place foods in a shallow glass baking dish or on a microwave roasting rack to catch drippings.

• Foods should still be somewhat icy in the center when removed from the oven.

OPERATION

TIPS FOR CONVECTION

COOKING

This section gives you cooking instructions and procedures for operating each convection function.

Please read these instructions carefully.

Convection cooking circulates hot air through the oven cavity with a fan. The constantly moving air surrounds the food to heat the outer portion quickly, creating even browning and sealed-in flavor by the constant motion of hot air over the food surfaces. Your oven uses convection cooking whenever you use the Convection button. DO NOT USE THE OVEN WITHOUT THE

TURNTABLE IN PLACE.

1. Always use the metal rack on the turntable when convection cooking.

2. Do not cover the turntable or metal rack with aluminum foil. It interferes with the flow of air that cooks the food.

3. Round pizza pans are excellent cooking utensils for many convection-only items. Choose pans that do not have extended handles.

4. Use convection cooking for items like soufflés, breads, cookies, angel food cakes, pizza, and for some meat and fish cooking.

5. You do not need to use any special techniques to adapt your favorite oven recipes to convection cooking; however, in general you need to lower the oven temperature by 25°F (14°C) from the recommended temperature mentioned in package instructions when cooking packaged food in convection mode.

6. When baking cakes, cookies, breads, rolls, or other baked foods, most recipes call for preheating.

Preheat the empty oven just as you do a regular oven. You can start heavier, dense foods such as meats, casseroles, and poultry without preheating.

7. All heatproof cookware or metal utensils can be used in convection cooking.

8. As in conventional cooking, the distance of the food from the heat source affects cooking results.

Refer to the tables in this Use and Care Guide.

9. Use metal utensils only for convection cooking.

Never use for microwave or combination cooking since arcing and damage to the oven may occur.

10. After preheating, if you do not open the door, the oven will automatically hold at the preheated temperature for 30 minutes.

PRECAUTIONS

• The oven cavity, door, turntable, roller rest, metal tray, metal rack, and cooking utensils will become very hot.

USE THICK OVEN GLOVES when removing the food, cooking utensils, metal rack, metal tray, and turntable from the oven after convection cooking.

• Do not use lightweight plastic containers, plastic wraps, or paper products during any convection cycle.

OPERATION

CONVECTION COOKING GUIDE

1. Always use the metal rack when convection baking.

2. Aluminum pans conduct heat quickly. For most convection baking, light, shiny finishes give the best results because they prevent overbrowning in the time it takes to cook the center areas. Pans with dull

(satin-finish) bottoms are recommended for cake pans and pie pans for best bottom browning.

3. Dark or nonshiny finishes, glass, and pyroceram absorb heat which may result in dry, crisp crusts.

4. Preheating the oven is recommended when baking foods by convection.

5. To prevent uneven heating and save energy, open the oven door to check food as little as possible.

OPERATION

TIPS FOR COMBINATION

COOKING

This section gives you instructions to operate each combination cooking function. Please read these instructions carefully. Sometimes combination microwave-convection cooking is suggested to get the best cooking results since it shortens the cooking time for foods that normally need a long time to cook. This cooking process also leaves meats juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. In combination cooking, the convection heat and microwave energy alternate automatically. Your oven has two preprogrammed settings that make it easy to use combination cooking.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR

COMBINATION COOKING

1. Meats may be roasted directly on the metal rack or in a shallow roasting pan placed on the rack. When using the metal rack, please check your cooking guide for information on proper use.

2. Less tender cuts of beef can be roasted and tenderized using oven cooking bags.

3. When baking, check for doneness after cooking time is up. If not completely done, let stand in oven for a few minutes to complete cooking.

PRECAUTIONS

1. All cookware used for combination cooking must be

BOTH microwave-safe and ovenproof.

2. During combination baking, some baking cookware may cause arcing when it comes in contact with the oven walls or metal accessory racks. Arcing is a discharge of electricity that occurs when microwaves come in contact with metal.

— If arcing occurs when using the metal rack, place a heatproof dish between the pan and the metal rack.

— If arcing occurs with other baking cookware, do not use them for combination cooking.

NOTES:

• The temperature can be adjusted; however, the microwave power cannot.

• By using MORE/LESS in combination cooking, you can adjust the temperature by 25°F (14°C) after step 3. (The default temperature is 350°F [180°C].)

HEATING / REHEATING GUIDE

To heat or reheat successfully in a microwave oven, it is important to follow several guidelines. Measure the amount of food in order to determine the time needed to reheat. Arrange the food in a circular pattern for best results. Room temperature food will heat faster than refrigerated food. Canned foods should be taken out of the can and placed in a microwave-safe container. The food will heat more evenly if covered with a microwave-safe lid or vented plastic wrap*. Remove cover carefully to prevent steam burns. Use the following table as a guide for reheating cooked food.

MAINTENANCE

CARING FOR YOUR MICROWAVE

OVEN

To make sure your microwave oven looks good and works well for a long time, you should maintain it properly. For proper care, please follow these instructions carefully.

For interior surfaces: Wash often with warm, sudsy water and a sponge or soft cloth. Use only mild, nonabrasive soaps or a mild detergent. Be sure to

keep the areas clean where the door and oven frame

touch when closed. Wipe well with clean cloth. Over time, stains can occur on the surfaces as the result of food particles spattering during cooking. This is normal.

For stubborn soil, boil a cup of water in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes. Steam will soften the soil. To get rid of odors inside the oven, boil a cup of water with some lemon juice or vinegar in it.

To clean grass tray and

rotating ring, wash in mild, sudsy water; for heavily soiled areas use a mild cleanser and scouring sponge. The glass tray and rotating ring are dishwasher safe.

Metal

Rack

Glass

Turntable

Turntable

Roller

Rest

For exterior surfaces and

control panel: Use a soft cloth with spray glass cleaner. Apply the spray glass cleaner to the soft cloth; do not spray directly on the oven.

NOTE: Abrasive cleansers, steel wool pads, gritty wash cloths, some paper towels,

etc., can damage the control panel and the interior and exterior oven surfaces.

MAINTENANCE

MICROWAVE UTENSIL GUIDE

USE DO NOT USE

OVENPROOF GLASS

(treated for high intensity heat): utility dishes, loaf dishes, pie plates, cake plates, liquid measuring cups, casseroles and bowls without metallic trim.

METAL UTENSILS:

Metal shields the food from microwave energy and produces uneven cooking. Also avoid metal skewers, thermometers, or foil trays. Metal utensils can cause arcing, which can damage your microwave oven.

CHINA:

bowls, cups, serving plates, and platters without metallic trim.

METAL DECORATION:

Metal-trimmed or metal-banded dinnerware, casserole dishes, etc. The metal trim interferes with normal cooking and may damage the oven.

PLASTIC:

Plastic wrap (as a cover)-- lay the plastic wrap loosely over the dish and press it to the sides.

Vent plastic wrap by turning back one edge slightly to allow excess steam to escape. The dish should be deep enough so that the plastic wrap will not touch the food. As the food heats it may melt the plastic wrap wherever the wrap touches the food.

Use plastic dishes, cups, semi-rigid freezer containers and plastic bags only for short cooking time. Use

these with care because the plastic may soften from the heat of the food.

PAPER:

Paper towels, waxed paper, paper napkins, and paper plates with no metallic trim or design. Look for the manufacturer's label for use in the microwave oven.

NOTE:

Do not use recycled paper products in the microwave oven. They sometimes contain impurities that cause arcing and sparking.

NEVER use paper products in the convection oven.

ALUMINUM FOIL:

Avoid large sheets of aluminum foil because they hinder cooking and may cause harmful arcing. Use small pieces of foil to shield poultry legs and wings. Keep ALL aluminum foil at least 1 inch from the side walls and door of the oven.

WOOD:

Wooden bowls and boards will dry out and may split or crack when you use them in the microwave oven. Baskets react in the same way.

TIGHTLY COVERED UTENSILS:

Be sure to leave openings for steam to escape from covered utensils. Pierce plastic pouches of vegetables or other food items before cooking. Tightly closed pouches could explode.

BROWN PAPER:

Avoid using brown paper bags.

They absorb too much heat and could burn.

FLAWED OR CHIPPED UTENSILS:

Any utensil that is cracked, flawed, or chipped may break in the oven.

METAL TWIST TIES:

Remove metal twist ties from plastic or paper bags.

They become hot and could cause a fire.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Questions and Answers

Operation

Question

Why is there light reflection around the outer case?

What are the various sounds heard when the microwave oven is operating?

Answer

Why is the oven light not on during cooking?

Is there a clock display?

Is there no clock display?

Why does steam come out of the air exhaust vent?

Will the microwave oven be damaged if it operates empty?

Bulb may be burned out, requiring replacement.

Set a cook time. Touch START.

Check the house circuit safety device.

Steam is normally produced during cooking. The microwave oven has been designed to vent this steam.

Yes. Never operate the oven empty or without the glass turntable.

Does microwave energy pass through the viewing screen in the door?

No. The metal screen bounces the energy back to the oven cavity.

The holes (or ports) allow only light to pass through. They do not let microwave energy pass through.

Why does a tone sound when a pad on the control panel is touched?

The tone tells you that the setting has been entered.

Can the microwave oven be damaged if food is cooked for too long?

Like any other cooking appliance, it is possible to overcook food to the point that the food creates smoke and even possibly fire and damage to the inside of the oven. It is always best to be near the oven while you are cooking.

When the oven is plugged into the wall outlet for the first time, it doesn't work properly. What is wrong?

The microcomputer controlling your oven may temporarily become scrambled and fail to function as programmed when you plug it in for the first time or when power resumes after a power interruption.

Unplug the oven from the 120-volt household outlet and then plug it back in to reset the microcomputer by resetting the clock.

This light is from the oven light which is located between the oven cavity and the outer wall of the oven.

The clicking sound is caused by a mechanical switch turning the microwave oven°òs magnetron ON and OFF.

The heavy hum and clunk is from the change in power the magnetron draws as it is turned ON and OFF by a mechanical switch. The change in blower speed is from the change in line voltage caused by the magnetron being turned ON and OFF.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Questions and Answers (continued)

Food

Question Answer

What is wrong when baked foods have a hard, dry, brown spot?

Why do eggs sometimes pop?

A hard, dry, brown spot indicates overcooking. Shorten the cooking or reheating time.

When baking, frying, or poaching eggs, the yolk may pop due to steam build up inside the yolk membrane. To prevent this, simply pierce the yolk with a wooden toothpick before cooking.

CAUTION: Never microwave eggs in the shell.

Why are scrambled eggs sometimes a little dry after cooking?

Eggs will dry out when they are overcooked, even if the same recipe is used each time. The cooking time may need to be varied for one of these reasons:

• Eggs vary in size.

• Eggs are at room temperature one time and at refrigerator temperature another time.

• Eggs continue cooking during standing time.

Why do baked apples sometimes burst during cooking?

Why do baked potatoes sometimes burn during cooking?

The peel has not been removed from the top half of each apple to allow for expansion of the interior of the apple during cooking.

As in conventional cooking methods, the interior of the apple expands during the cooking process.

If the cooking time is too long, fire could result. At the end of the recommended cooking time, potatoes should be slightly firm.

CAUTION: Do not overcook.

Why is a standing time recommended after microwave cooking time is over?

Standing time allows foods to continue cooking evenly for a few minutes after the actual microwave oven cooking cycle ends.

The amount of standing time depends upon the density of the foods.

Why is additional time required for cooking food stored in the refrigerator?

As in conventional cooking, the initial temperature of food affects total cooking time. You need more time to cook food taken out of a refrigerator than for food at room temperature.

TROUBLESHOOTING

BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE

Check the following list to be sure a service call is really necessary. A quick reference of this manual as well as reviewing additional information on items to check may prevent an unneeded service call.

If nothing on the oven operates:

• check for a blown circuit fuse or a tripped main circuit breaker.

• check if oven is properly connected to electric circuit in house.

• check that controls are set properly.

If food cooks unevenly:

• be sure food is evenly shaped.

• be sure food is completely defrosted before cooking.

• check placement of aluminum foil strips used to prevent overcooking.

If food is undercooked:

• check recipe to be sure all directions (amount, time, and power levels) were correctly followed.

• be sure microwave oven is on a separate circuit.

• be sure food is completely defrosted before cooking.

If the oven interior light does not works:

• the light bulb is loose or defective.

If oven will not cook:

• check that control panel was programmed correctly.

• check that door is firmly closed.

• check that Start was pressed.

• check that probe was inserted correctly into receptacle.

• check that timer wasn’t started instead of a cook function.

If oven takes longer than normal to cook or cooks too rapidly:

• be sure the Power Level is programmed properly.

If the time of day clock does not always keep correct time:

• check that the power cord is fully inserted into the outlet receptacle.
