Warning! Never leave the oven unwatched,
especially when using paper, plastic or other
combustible materials. These materials can
char and may fire. FIRE RISK!
Warning! If you see smoke or fire, keep the
door closed in order to smother the flames.
Switch off the oven and take the plug out of
the socket or cut off the oven power supply.
Warning! Do not heat pure alcohol or
alcoholic drinks in the microwave. FIRE
RISK!
Warning! Do not heat liquids or other foods
in closed containers since these may
explode readily.
Warning! Children should only be able to
use the oven without adult supervision if
they have been given instructions on how to
use the oven safely and on how to identify
the dangers of badly using the oven.
Warning! If the oven has a combined
function mode (microwave with other means
of heating), children should not be allowed to
use the oven without adult supervision on
account of the high temperatures generated.
Warning! The oven cannot be used if:
Beware!
• Never heat baby foods or drinks in
bottles or jars with the teats or lids on
them. After heating the food mix or shake
well so that the heat is spread evenly.
Check the food temperature before
feeding this to the child. DANGER OF
BURNING!
•
•
•
To avoid food overheating or burning it is
very important not to select long time
periods or power levels that are too high
when heating small quantities of food. For
example, a bread roll can burn after 3
minutes if the power selected is too high.
For toasting, use just the grilling function and
watch the oven all the time. It you use a
combined function to toast bread it will catch
fire in a very short time.
Make sure you never catch the power cables
of other electrical appliances in the hot door
or the oven. The cable insulation may melt.
Danger of short-circuiting!
- The door is not closed correctly;
- The door hinges are damaged;
Take care when heating liquids!
- The surfaces of the contact between the door
and the oven front are damaged;
When liquids (water, coffee, tea, milk, etc.) are
nearly at boiling point inside the oven and are
taken out suddenly, they may spurt out of their
containers. DANGER OF INJURIES AND
BURNS!
- The door window glass is damaged;
- There is frequent electrical arcing inside the
oven even though there is no metal object
inside.
• The oven can only be used again after it
has been repaired by a Technical
Assistance Service technician.
To avoid that type of situation when heating
liquids, put a teaspoon or glass rod inside the
container.

Microwave safety
•
This oven is exclusively for domestic use!
Use the oven only for preparing meals.
Avoid damaging the oven or other dangerous
situations by following these instructions:
• Do not switch on the oven without the
turntable support, the turntable ring and
the respective plate being in place.
• Never switch on the microwave when it is
empty. If there is no food inside there may
be an electrical overcharge and the oven
could be damaged. RISK OF DAMAGE!
• For carrying out oven programming tests
put a glass of water inside the oven. The
water will absorb the microwaves and the
oven will not be damaged.
• Do not cover or obstruct the ventilation
openings.
• Use only dishes suitable for microwaves.
Before using dishes and containers in the
microwave, check that these are suitable
(see the section on types of dishes).
• Never remove the mica cover on the
ceiling of the oven interior! This cover
stops fat and pieces of food damaging the
microwave generator.
• Do not keep any inflammable object inside
the oven as it may burn if the oven is
switched on.
• Do not use the oven as a pantry.
• Eggs with their shells and whole boiled
eggs must not be heated in microwave
ovens because they may explode.
• Do not use the oven for frying as it is
impossible to control the temperature of oil
heated by microwaves.
• To avoid being burnt, always use oven
gloves for handling dishes and containers
and touching the oven.
• Do not lean or sit on the open oven door.
This may damage the oven, especially in the
hinge zone. The door can bear a maximum
weight of 8 kg.
The turntable and the grills can bear a
maximum load of 8 kg. To avoid damaging
the oven, do not exceed this load.
Cleaning:
• Warning! Your microwave oven must be
cleaned regularly. All food remains must be
removed (see section on Oven Cleaning). If
the microwave oven is not kept clean its
surface may deteriorate and this may
shorten the oven’s working life and could
even result in a dangerous situation.
• The door contact surfaces (the front of the
cavity and the inside part of the doors) must
be kept very clean in order to ensure the
oven functions correctly.
• Please follow the instructions regarding
cleaning in the section “Oven Cleaning and
Maintenance”.
Repairs:
• Warning – Microwaves! The outer
protection of the oven must not be
removed. It is dangerous for anyone not
authorised by the manufacturer to carry out
any kind of repair or maintenance work.
• If the power cable is damaged it should be
substituted by the manufacturer, authorised
agents or technicians qualified for this task
in order to avoid dangerous situations.
Furthermore, special tools are required for
this task.
• Repair and maintenance work, especially of
current carrying parts, can only be carried
out by technicians authorised by the
manufacturer.

The advantages of microwaves
In conventional ovens, heat radiated by electrical
elements or gas burners slowly penetrates the
food from outside to inside. On account of this
there is a major amount of energy is wasted
heating the air, the oven components and the food
containers.
Why food heats up
Most foods contain water and water molecules
vibrate when subjected to microwaves.
The friction between molecules produces heat
which raises the temperature of the food, defreezing it, cooking it or keeping it hot.
In a microwave oven, heat is generated by the
food itself and the heat travels from inside to
outside. No heat is lost to the air, the walls of the
oven cavity or the dishes and containers (if these
are suitable for use in microwave oven), in other
words, only the food is heated.
Since the heat arises inside the food:
• This can be cooked with little or no liquid or
fats/oils;
• De-freezing, heating or cooking in a
microwave oven is quicker than in a
conventional oven;
• The vitamins, minerals and nutritional
substances in the food are conserved;
• The natural colour and aroma of the food are
unchanged.
Microwave ovens have the following advantages:
1. Shorter cooking times; in general these are up
to 3/4 less than the time required for
conventional cooking.
2. Ultra-fast food defrosting, thus reducing the
danger of bacterial development.
Microwaves pass through china, glass, cardboard
or plastic but do not go through metal. For this
reason, metal containers or ones with metal parts
must not be used in a microwave oven.
3. Energy savings.
4. Conservation of the nutritional value of foods
due to the shorter cooking times.
Microwaves are reflected by metal...
5. Easy to clean.
How a microwave oven works
In a microwave oven there is a high tension valve
called a magnetron which converts electrical
energy
into
microwave
energy.
These
electromagnetic waves are channelled to the
interior of the oven through a wave guide and
distributed by a metallic spreader or through a
turntable.
... but go through glass and china...
Inside the oven the microwaves propagate in all
directions and are reflected by the metal walls,
uniformly penetrating the food.
... and are absorbed by foods.

Defrosting
General instructions for defrosting
1. When defrosting, use only dishes that are
appropriate for microwaves (china, glass,
suitable plastic).
2. The defrost function by weight and the tables
refer to the defrosting of raw food.
3. The defrosting time depends on the quantity
and thickness of the food. When freezing food
keep the defrosting process in mind. Distribute
the food evenly in the container.
4. Distribute the food as best as possible inside
the oven. The thickest parts of fish or chicken
drumsticks should be turned towards the
outside. You can protect the most delicate parts
of food with pieces of aluminium foil.
Important: The aluminium foil must not come
into contact with the oven cavity interior as this
can cause electrical arcing.
5. Thick portions of food should be turned several
times.
6. Distribute the frozen food as evenly as possible
since narrow and thin portions defrost more
quickly than the thicker and broader parts.
8. Place poultry on an upturned plate so that the
meat juices can run off more easily.
9. Bread should be wrapped in a napkin so that it
does not become too dry.
10.
Turn the food whenever the oven lets out a
.
beep and the display flashes the word:
11.
Remove frozen food from its wrapping and
do not forget to take off any metal twist-tags.
For containers that are used to keep frozen
food in the freezer and which can also be used
for heating and cooking, all you need to do is
take off the lid. For all other cases you should
put the food into containers that are suitable for
microwave use.
12.
The liquid resulting from defrosting,
principally that from poultry, should be
discarded. In no event should such liquids be
allowed to come into contact with other foods.
13.
Do not forget that by using the defrosting
function you need to allow for standing time
until the food is completely defrosted.
7. Fat-rich foods such as butter, cream cheese
and cream should not be completely defrosted.
If they are kept at room temperature they will
be ready to be served in a few minutes. With
ultra-frozen cream, if you find small pieces of
ice in it, you should mix these in before serving.

Cooking with a microwave oven
•
Warning! Read the section “Microwave Safety”
before cooking with your microwave.
Follow these recommendations when cooking with
your microwave:
• Before heating or cooking foods with peel or
skin (e.g. apples, tomatoes, potatoes,
sausages) prick them so that they do not
burst. Cut the food up before starting to
prepare it.
• Before using a container or dish make sure
that it is suitable for microwave use (see the
section on types of ovenware).
• When cooking food with very little moisture
(e.g. defrosting bread, making popcorn,
etc.) evaporation is very quick. The oven
then works as if it was empty and the food
may burn. The oven and the container may
be damaged in such a situation. You should
therefore set just the cooking time necessary
and you must keep a close eye on the
cooking process.
• It is not possible to heat large quantities of
oil (frying) in the microwave.
• Remove pre-cooked food from the
containers they come in since these are not
always heat resistant. Follow the food
manufacturer’s instructions.
• If you have several containers, such as
cups, for example, set them out uniformly on
the turntable plate.
• Do not close plastic bags with metal clips.
Use plastic clips instead. Prick the bags
several times so that the steam can escape
easily.
• When heating or cooking foods, check that
they reach at least a temperature of 70°C.
• During cooking, steam may form on the
oven door window and may start to drip.
This situation is normal and may be more
noticeable if the room temperature is low.
The oven’s safe working is not affected by
this. After you have finished cooking, clean
up the water coming from the condensation
When heating liquids, use containers with
a wide opening, so that the steam can
evaporate easily.
Prepare the foods as per the instructions and
keep in mind the cooking times and power levels
indicated in the tables.
Keep in mind that the figures given are only
indicative and can vary depending on the initial
state, temperature, moisture and type of food. It is
advisable to adjust the times and power levels to
each situation. Depending on the exact
characteristics of the food you may need to
increase or shorten the cooking times or increase
or decrease the power levels.
Cooling with microwaves...
1. The greater the amount of food, the longer the
cooking time. Keep in mind that:
• Double the quantity » double the time
• Half the quantity » half the time
2. The lower the temperature, the longer the
cooking time.
3. Foods containing a lot of liquid heat up more
quickly.
4. Cooking will be more uniform if the food is
evenly distributed on the turntable. If you put
dense foods on the outside part of the plate and
less dense ones on the centre of the plate, you
can heat up different types of food simultaneously.
5. You can open the oven door at any time. When
you do this the oven switches off automatically.
The microwave will only start working again when
you close the door and press the start key.
6. Foods that are covered require less cooking
time and retain their characteristics better. The
lids used must let microwaves pass through and
have small holes that allow steam to escape.

Cooking with the grill
For good results with the grill, use the rectangular
rack supplied with the oven.
IMPORTANT POINTS:
1. When the microwave grill is used for the first
time there will be some smoke and a smell
coming from the oils used during oven
manufacture.
2. The oven door window becomes very hot when
the grill is working. Keep children away.
3. When the grill is operating, the cavity walls and
the rectangular rack become very hot. You
should use oven gloves.
4. If the grill is used for extended period of time it
is normal to find that the elements will switch
themselves off temporarily due to the safety
thermostat.
5. Important! When food is to be grilled or
cooked in containers you must check that the
container in question is suitable for microwave
use. See the section on types of ovenware!
6. When the grill is used it is possible that some
splashes of fat may go onto the elements and
be burnt. This is a normal situation and does
not mean there is any kind of operating fault.
7. After you have finished cooking, clean the
interior and the accessories so that cooking
remains do not become encrusted.

Place the grid on a bowl so that the water and the
fat can drop. The times shown are merely
indicative and can vary as a function of the
composition and quantity of the food, as well as
the final condition wished for. Fish and meat taste
great if, before grilling, you brush them with
vegetable oil, spices and herbs and leave to
marinate for a few hours. Only add salt after
grilling.
Sausages will not burst if you prick them with a
fork before grilling.
After half the grilling time has passed, check on
how the cooking is going and, if necessary, turn
the food over or brush it with some oil.
The grill is especially suitable for cooking thin
portions of meat and fish. Thin portions of meat
only need to be turned once, but thicker portions
should be turned several times. In the case of fish,
you should join the two ends, putting the tail in its
mouth, and then put the fish on the rectangular
rack.

Roasting and baking
Advice to roast - bake
Advice on ovenware
Turn the pieces of meat halfway through the
cooking time. When the roasted meat is ready you
should let it stand for 20 minutes in the oven with
this switched off and closed. This will ensure the
juices in the meat are well distributed.
Check that the ovenware fits inside the oven.
The roasting temperature and time required
depends on the type and amount of meat being
cooked.
Hot glass containers should be put on a dry
kitchen cloth. If such containers are put on a cold
or wet surface the glass may crack and break.
Use oven gloves to take the ovenware out of the
oven.
If the weight of the meat to be roasted does not
appear on the table choose the settings for the
weight immediately below and extend the cooking
times.

Advice on cake baking ware
If the cake is very dry
The most commonly used type of baking ware is
black metal tins. If you are also going to use the
microwave, use glass, ceramic or plastic baking
ware. These must be able to withstand
temperatures up to 250ºC. If you use these types
of baking ware the cakes are not browned as
much.
Make small holes in the cake with a tooth pick
after baking has finished. Then sprinkle the cake
with some fruit juice or alcoholic drink. Next time
increase the temperature by about 10º and reduce
the baking time.
Advice on how to bake cakes
Different amounts and types of pastry require
different temperatures and baking times. Try low
settings first of all and then, if necessary, use
higher temperatures next time. A lower
temperature will result in more uniform baking.
Always put the cake tray in the centre of the
turntable.
Baking suggestions
How to check if the cake is properly cooked
Start sticking a tooth pick in the highest part of the
cake 10 minutes before the end of the baking
time. When no dough sticks to the tooth pick the
cake is ready.
Der Kuchen wird sehr dunkel:
Wählen Sie beim nächsten Mal eine niedrigere
Temperatur und lassen Sie den Kuchen länger
backen.
If the cake does not come free when turned
Let the cake cool down for 5 to 10 minutes after
baking and it will come out of the tin more easily.
If the cake still does not come free run a knife
carefully around the edges. Next time grease the
cake tin well.
Advice on saving energy
When you are making more than one cake, it is
advisable to bake them in the oven one after the
other when the oven is still hot. This lets you
reduce the baking time for the second and later
cakes.
It is preferable to use dark coloured baking ware painted or enamelled black – since such baking
tins absorb heat better.
When dealing with long baking times, you can
switch the oven off 10 minutes before the end of
the time and make use of the residual heat to
complete the baking.

EN
What kind of ovenware can be used?
Microwave function
For the microwave function, keep in mind that
microwaves are reflected by metal surfaces.
Glass, china, clay, plastic, and paper let
microwaves pass.
For this reason, metal pans and dishes or
containers with metal parts or decorations
cannot be used in the microwave. Glass ware
and clay with metallic decoration or content
(e.g. lead crystal) cannot be used in microwave
ovens.
The ideal materials for use in microwave ovens
are glass, refractory china or clay, or heat
resistant plastic. Very thin, fragile glass or china
should only be used for short period of times (e.g.
heating).
Hot food transmits heat to the dishes which can
become very hot. You should, therefore, always
use an oven glove!
How to test ovenware you want to use
Put the item you want to use in the oven for 20
seconds at maximum microwave power. After that
time, if it is cold and just slightly warm, it is
suitable to use. However, if it heats up a lot or
causes electric arcing it is not suitable for
microwave use.
Grill and Hot air function
In the case of the grill function, the ovenware must
be resistant to temperature of at least 300°C.
Plastic dishes are not suitable for use in the grill.
Microwave + grill function
In the microwave + grill function, the ovenware
used must be suitable for use in both the
microwave and the grill.
Aluminium containers and foil
Keep
in
mind
the
manufacturer’s
recommendations written on the packaging.
• The aluminium containers cannot be more
than 3 cm high or come in contact with the
cavity walls (minimum distance 3 cm). Any
aluminium lid or top must be removed.
• Put the aluminium container directly on top
of the turntable plate. If you use the
rectangular rack, put the container on a
china plate. Never put the container directly
on the rectangular rack!
• The cooking time is longer because the
microwaves only enter the food from the top.
If you have any doubts, it is best to use only
dishes suitable for microwave use.
• Aluminium foil can be used to reflect
microwaves during the defrosting process.
Delicate food, such as poultry or minced
meat, can be protected from excessive heat
by
covering
the
respective
extremities/edges.
• Important: aluminium foil cannot come into
contact with the cavity walls since this may
cause electrical arcing.
Lids
We recommend you use glass or plastic lids or
cling film since:
1. This will stop excessive evaporation (mainly
during very long cooking times);
2. The cooking times are shorter;
3. The food does not become dry;
4. The aroma is preserved.
The lid should have holes or openings so that no
pressure develops. Plastic bags must also be
opened. Baby feeding bottles or jars with baby
food and similar containers can only be heated
without their tops / lids otherwise they can burst.
Pre-cooked food in aluminium containers or in
aluminium foil can be put in the microwave if the
following aspects are respected:

Oven Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning is the only maintenance normally
required.
Warning! Your microwave oven should be
cleaned regularly, with all food remains being
removed. If the microwave is not kept clean its
surfaces may deteriorate, reducing the oven’s
working life and possibly resulting in a
dangerous situation.
Warning! Cleaning should be done with the
oven power switched off. Take the plug out of
the socket or switch off the oven’s power
circuit.
Do not use aggressive or abrasive cleaning
products, scourers that scratch surfaces or
sharp objects, since stains may appear.
Do not use high pressure or stream jet
cleaning appliances.
Front surface
Normally you just need to clean the oven with a
damp cloth. If it is very dirty, add a few drops of
dishwashing liquid to the cleaning water.
Afterwards, wipe the oven with a dry cloth.
In an oven with an aluminium front, use a glass
cleaning product and a soft cloth that does not
release any fibres or threads. Wipe from side to
side without exerting any pressure on the surface.
Immediately remove lime, fat, starch or egg white
stains. Corrosion can occur under these stains.
Do not let any water get inside the oven.
Oven interior
After each time the oven is used, clean the inside
walls with a damp cloth since this is the easiest
way to remove splashes or spots of food that may
have stuck to the inside.
To remove dirt that is harder to shift, use a nonaggressive cleaning product. Do not use oven
sprays or other aggressive or abrasive
cleaning products.
Always keep the door and the oven front very
clean to ensure that the door opens and
closes properly.
Make sure water does not enter the microwave
ventilation holes.
Regularly take out the turntable plate and the
respective support and clean the cavity base,
especially after any liquid spillage.
Do not switch on the oven without the
turntable and the respective support being in
place.
If the oven cavity is very dirty, put a glass of water
on the turntable and switch on the microwave
oven for 2 or 3 minutes at maximum power. The
steam released will soften the dirt which can then
be cleaned easily using a soft cloth.
Unpleasant odours (e.g. after cooking fish) can be
eliminated easily. Put a few drops of lemon juice
in a cup with water. Put a spoonful of coffee in the
cup to avoid the water boiling over. Heat the water
for 2 to 3 minutes at maximum microwave power.

Oven Cleaning and Maintenance
Oven ceiling
If the oven ceiling is dirty, the grill can be lowered
to make cleaning easier.
To avoid any risk, do not remove the mica
cover.
To avoid the danger of burning, wait until the
grill is cold before lowering it. Proceed as
follows:
The glass lamp cover (4) is located on the oven
ceiling and can be removed easily for cleaning.
For this you just need to unscrew it and clean it
with water and dishwashing liquid.
1. Turn the grill support by 90º (1).
2. Lower the grill gently (2). Do not use excessive
force as this may cause damage.
3. After cleaning the ceiling, put the grill (2) back
in its place, carrying out the previous operation.
The mica cover (3) located in the ceiling must
always be kept clean. Any food remains that
collect on the mica cover can cause damage or
provoke sparks.
Accessories
Clean the accessories after each use. If they are
very dirty, soak them first of all and then use a
brush and sponge. The accessories can be
washed in a dish washing machine.
Make sure that the turntable plate and the
respective support are always clean. Do not
switch on the oven unless the turntable and the
respective support are in place.
Do not use abrasive cleaning products or
sharp objects.

What should I do if the oven doesn’t work?
•
WARNING! Any type of repair must only be
done by a specialised technician. Any repair
done by a person not authorised by the
manufacturer is dangerous.
•
You do not need to contact Technical Assistance
to resolve the following questions:
• The display is not showing! Check if:
- The time indication has been switched off (see
section on Basic Settings).
• Nothing happens when I press the keys!
Check if:
- The Safety Block is active (see section on
Basic Settings).
• The oven does not work! Check if:
- The plug is correctly fitted in the socket.
- The oven’s power is switched on.
- The door is completely closed. The door should
close with an audible click.
- There are any foreign bodies between the door
and the cavity front.
• When the oven is operating I can hear
some strange noises! Check if:
- There is any electrical arcing inside the oven
caused by foreign metallic objects (see section
on type of ovenware).
- The ovenware is touching the oven walls.
•
The food is too hot, dried out or burnt!
Check if you selected the correct operating
time and power level.
I hear some noises after the cooking
process is finished! This is not a problem.
The cooling fan keeps on working for some
time. When the temperature has dropped
sufficiently, the fan will switch itself off.
The oven switches on but the interior
light does not go on! If all the functions
work properly it is probable that the lamp
has blown. You can keep on using the oven.
Substitution of light bulb
To substitute the light bulb, proceed as follows:
- Disconnect the oven from the power supply.
Take the plug out of the socket or switch off the
oven’s power circuit.
- Unscrew and remove the glass light cover (1).
- Remove the halogen light bulb (2). Warning!
The bulb may be very hot.
- Fit a new 12V / 10W halogen bulb. Warning! Do
not touch the light bulb surface directly with
your fingers because you may damage the
bulb. Follow the lamp manufacturer’s
instructions.
- Screw the glass light cover into place (1).
- Connect the oven again to the power supply.
- There are any loose items of cutlery or cooking
tools inside the oven.
• The food doesn’t heat up or heats very
slowly! Check if:
- You have inadvertently used metal ovenware.
- You have selected the correct operating times
and power level.
The food you have put inside the oven is a
larger amount or colder than you usually put in.
