PRECAUTIONS
GENERAL
LIQUIDS
E.G. BEVERAGES OR WATER. Overheating the liquid
beyond boiling point can occur
without evidence of bubbling.
This could result in a sudden
boil over of the hot liquid.
To prevent this possibility the
following steps should be taken:
1. Avoid using straight-sided containers with
narrow necks.
2. Stir the liquid before placing the container
in the oven and let the teaspoon remain
in the container.
3. After heating, allow standing for a short
time, stirring again before carefully removing the container from the oven.
THIS APPLIANCE IS DESIGNED FOR DOMESTIC USE ONLY!
THE APPLIANCE SHOULD NOT BE OPERATED without food
in the oven when using microwaves. Operation in
this manner is likely to damage the appliance.
THE VENTILATION OPENINGS on the oven must not be
covered. Blocking the air intake or exhaust vents
may cause damage to the oven and poor cooking results.
IF YOU PRACTICE OPERATING the oven, put a glass
of water inside. The water will absorb the microwave energy and the oven will not be damaged.
DO NOT STORE or use this appliance outdoors.
DO NOT USE this product near a kitchen sink, in
a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, or
similar.
AFTER HEATING BABY FOOD or liquids in a
baby bottle or in a baby food
jar, always stir and check the
temperature before serving.
This will ensure that the heat is evenly distributed
and the risk of scalding or burns can be avoided.
Ensure the Lid and the Teat is removed before heating!
DO NOT USE THE CAVITY for any storage purposes.
REMOVE WIRE TWIST-TIES from paper or
plastic bags before placing bag in
the oven.
DEEP-FRYING
DO NOT USE YOUR MICROWAVE oven for deep-frying,
because the oil temperature cannot be
controlled.
USE HOT PADS OR OVEN MITTS to prevent
burns, when touching containers, oven
parts, and pan after cooking. Accessible parts may become hot during use,
young children should be kept away.

ACCESSORIES
GENERAL
TURNTABLE SUPPORT
USE THE TURNTABLE SUPPORT under the
Glass turntable. Never put any other utensils on the turntable support.
Fit the turntable support in the oven.
THERE ARE a number of accessories available on
the market. Before you buy, ensure they are
suitable for microwave use.
ENSURE THAT THE UTENSILS YOU USE are oven proof
and allow microwaves to
pass through them before
cooking.
WHEN YOU PUT FOOD AND ACCESSORIES in the microwave oven, ensure that they do not come in
contact with the interior of the oven.
This is especially important with accessories made of metal or metal parts.
GLASS TURNTABLE
USE THE GLASS TURNTABLE with all cooking methods. It collects the dripping juices and food particles that otherwise would stain and soil the interior of the oven.
Place the Glass turntable on the turntable
support.
IF ACCESSORIES CONTAINING METAL comes in contact
with the oven interior, while the oven is in operation, sparking can occur and the oven could
be damaged.
WIRE RACK
USE THE WIRE RACK when cooking
with Grill functions.
ALWAYS ENSURE that the turntable is able to turn
freely before starting the oven. If the turntable isn’t able to turn freely you should use a
smaller vessel.
CHOOSING MICROWAVE POWER

COOKING CHART
THE MORE FOOD YOU WANT TO COOK the longer it
takes. A rule of thumb is that double amount
of food requires almost double the time.
THE LOWER STARTING TEMPERATURE, the longer cooking time is required. Food at room temperature cooks faster than food taken directly from the refrigerator.
IF YOU ARE COOKING SEVERAL ITEMS of the
same food, such as jacket potatoes,
place them in a ring pattern for uniform
cooking.
SOME FOODS ARE COVERED BY A SKIN OR MEMBRANE e.g.
potatoes, apples and egg yolks. These food
should be pricked with a fork or cocktail stick
to relieve the pressure and to prevent bursting.
SMALLER PIECES OF FOOD WILL COOK FASTER than larger pieces and uniform pieces of food cook
more evenly than irregularly shaped foods.
TYPE OF
FOOD
AMOUNT POWER
LEVEL
STIRRING AND TURNING OF FOOD ARE techniques
used in conventional cooking as well as in microwave cooking to distribute the heat quickly to the center of the dish and avoids overcooking at the outer edges of the food.
WHEN COOKING FOOD OF UNEVEN SHAPE or
thickness, place the thinner area of
food towards the center of the dish,
where it will be heated last.
FOOD WITH LOT OF FAT AND SUGAR will be
cooked faster than food containing a lot
of water. Fat and sugar will also reach a higher
temperature than water.
ALWAYS ALLOW THE FOOD TO STAND for some time
after cooking. Standing time always improves
the result since the temperature will then be
evenly distributed throughout the food.

REHEATING CHART
AS IN TRADITIONAL COOKING METHODS, food reheated in a microwave oven must always be heated
until piping hot.
THE BEST RESULTS ARE ACHIEVED if the food
is arranged with the thicker food to the
outside of the plate and the thinner
food in the centre.
PLACE THIN SLICES OF MEAT on top of each
other or interlace them. Thicker slices
such as meat loaf and sausages have to be
placed close to each other.

WHEN REHEATING STEWS OR SAUCES it is better to stir
once to distribute the heat evenly.
COVERING THE FOOD helps to keep the moisture
inside the food, reduces spattering and
shortens the reheating time.
WHEN REHEATING FROZEN FOOD portions
follow the manufactures instruction
on the package.
FOOD WHICH CANNOT BE STIRRED, like gratin is
best reheated on 400–600 W.
SOME MINUTES STANDING TIME will make sure the
temperature is evenly distributed throughout
the food.

DEFROSTING CHART
TURN LARGE JOINTS halfway through the defrosting process.
BOILED FOOD, STEWS AND MEAT SAUCES defrost better
if stirred during defrosting time.
WHEN DEFROSTING it is better to underthaw the food slightly and allow the
process to finish during standing time.
STANDING TIME AFTER DEFROSTING always improves the result since the temperature
will then be evenly distributed throughout the food.
FROZEN FOOD IN PLASTIC BAGS, plastic films or cardboard packages can be placed directly in the
oven as long as the package has no metal
parts (e.g. metal twist ties).
THE SHAPE OF THE PACKAGE alters the defrosting time. Shallow packets defrost more
quickly than a deep block.
SEPARATE PIECES as they begin to defrost.
Individual slices defrost more easily.

GRILLING CHART
ENSURE that the utensils you use are heat resistant, ovenproof and allow microwaves
to pass through them before Grilling with
microwaves combined.
DO NOT use plastic utensils when grilling. They will
melt. Items of wood or paper are not suitable either.
THE GRILL FUNCTION IS EXCELLENT for browning the
food after cooking with microwaves.
THE WIRE RACK may be used to move foods closer to the grill element for quicker browning.
PLACE THIN FOODS such as toasts and sausages on
the wire rack and cook with grill only.
THICKER FOODS such as gratins and chicken; Cook
with microwaves first and then allow the grill
to brown the top surface in order to put some
colour to it.

MAINTENANCE & CLEANING
THE GRILL ELEMENT does not need cleaning since
the intense heat will burn off any splashes, but
the ceiling beneath it may need regular cleaning. This should be done with a soft and damp
cloth with mild detergent.
If the Grill is not used regularly, it should be
run for 10 minutes a month to burn off any
splashes, in order to reduce the risk of fire.
CLEANING IS THE ONLY MAINTENANCE normally required. It must be carried out with the microwave oven disconnected.
FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE OVEN in a clean condition
could lead to deterioration of the surface that
could adversely affect the life of the appliance
and possibly result in a hazardous situation.
DO NOT USE METAL SCOURING PADS,
ABRASIVE CLEANSERS , steelwool pads, gritty washcloths, etc. which can
damage the control panel, and the interior and exterior oven surfaces. Use a cloth with a mild detergent
or a paper towel with spray glass cleaner.
Apply spray glass cleaner to a paper towel.
DO NOT SPRAY directly on the oven.
AT REGULAR INTERVALS, especially
if spill overs have occurred, remove the turntable, the turntable support and wipe the base of
the oven clean.
THIS OVEN IS DESIGNED to operate with the turntable in place.
DO NOT operate the microwave oven
when the turntable has been removed
for cleaning.
USE A SOFT AND DAMP CLOTH with mild detergent
to clean the interior surfaces, front and rear of
the door and the door opening.
DO NOT ALLOW GREASE or food particles to
build up around the door.
FOR STUBBORN STAINS, boil a cup of water in the
oven for 2 or 3 minutes. Steam will soften the
