IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
w CAUTION
To avoid risk of personal injury or property damage, observe the following:
7. Do not operate the oven empty. Either food or
water should always be in the oven during
operation to absorb microwave energy.
1. Be certain to place the front surface of the door
three inches away or more from the countertop
edge to avoid accidental tipping of the appliance in
normal usage.
8. Do not use your microwave oven to dry
newspapers or clothes. They can catch fire.
2. For the most accurate programming of the
electronic units, touch the center of each pad
securely. Do not touch several pads at one time or
touch between pads. A beep sound should be
heard with each touch when a pad is touched
correctly.
9. Use only thermometers approved for
microwave oven cooking.
10. Be certain the turntable is in place when you
operate the oven.
11. Pierce the skin of potatoes, whole squash, apples,
or any fruit or vegetable which has a skin covering
before cooking.
3. Do not hit or strike the control with objects such as
silverware, utensils, etc. Breakage may occur.
4. Be careful when taking the cooking utensils out of
the oven. Some dishes absorb heat from the
cooked food and may be hot.
12. Never use your microwave oven to cook eggs
in the shell. Pressure can build up inside the shell,
causing it to burst.
5. Do not rinse cooking utensils by immediately
placing them into water just after cooking. This
may cause breakage. Allow the turntable to cool.
13. Do not pop popcorn, except in a microwave-safe
container or commercial package
designed especially for microwave ovens.
Never try to pop popcorn in a paper bag not
designed for microwave oven use. Overcooking
may result in smoke and fire. Do not repop
unpopped kernels. Do not reuse popcorn bags.
6. Use only specific glass utensils. See cooking
utensils section in this manual.

D. PLACEMENT OF THE OVEN
w WARNING
Your microwave oven can be placed easily in your kitchen,
family room, or anywhere else in your home. Place the oven
on a flat surface such as a kitchen countertop or a specially
designed microwave oven cart. Do not place oven above a
gas or electric range. Free air flow around the oven is
important.
To avoid risk of electrical shock or death, this oven
must be earthed.
w WARNING
E. DO NOT BLOCK AIR VENTS
To avoid risk of electrical shock or death, do not
alter the plug.
All air vents should be kept clear during cooking. If air
vents are covered during oven operation the oven may
overheat. In this case, a sensitive thermal safety device
automatically turns the oven off. The oven will be
inoperable until it has cooled sufficiently.
A. GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an
electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of
electric shock by providing an escape wire for the
electric current. This appliance is equipped with a cord
having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed
and grounded.
F. RADIO INTERFERENCE
1. Microwave oven operation may interfere with TV or
radio reception.
2. When there is interference, it may be reduced or
eliminated by taking the following measures:
a. Clean the door and the sealing surfaces of the oven.
b. Reorient the receiving antenna of radio or television.
c. Relocate the microwave oven in relation to the TV or radio.
d. Move the microwave oven away from the receiver.
e. Plug the microwave oven into a different outlet so that
microwave oven and receiver are on different branch
circuits.
Ensure proper ground
exists before use
G. UNPACKING OVEN
• Inspect oven for damage such as dents in door or
inside oven cavity.
• Report any dents or breakage to source of purchase
immediately.
Do not attempt to use oven if damaged.
• Remove all materials from oven interior.
• If oven has been stored in extremely cold area, wait a
few hours before connecting power.
B. CIRCUITS
For safety purposes this oven must be plugged into a 15

GETTING THE BEST RESULTS
FROM YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
SPECIAL TECHNIQUES IN
MICROWAVE COOKING
Keep an eye on things. The instructions in this book
have been formulated with great care, but your
success in preparing food depends, of course, on how
much attention you pay to the food as it cooks. Always
watch your food while it cooks. Your microwave oven is
equipped with a light that turns on automatically when
the oven is in operation so that you can see inside and
check the progress of your recipe. Directions given in
recipes to elevate, stir, and the like should be thought of
as the minimum steps recommended. If the food seems
to be cooking unevenly, simply make the necessary
adjustments you think appropriate to correct the
problem.
Factors affecting cooking times. Many factors affect
cooking times. The temperature of ingredients used in a
recipe makes a big difference in cooking times. For
example, a cake made with ice-cold butter, milk, and
eggs will take considerably longer to bake than one
made with ingredients that are at room temperature. All
of the recipes in this book give a range of cooking times.
In general, you will find that the food remains undercooked at the lower end of the time range, and you may
sometimes want to cook your food beyond the maximum
time given, according to personal preference. The
governing philosophy of this book is that it is best for a
recipe to be conservative in giving cooking times. While
undercooked food may always be cooked a bit more,
overcooked food is ruined for good. Some of the recipes,
particularly those for bread, cakes, and custard,
recommend that food be removed from the oven when
they are slightly undercooked. This is not a mistake.
When allowed to stand, usually covered, these foods will
continue to cook outside of the oven as the heat trapped
within the outer portions of the foods gradually travels
inward. If the foods are left in the oven until they are
cooked all the way through, the outer portions will
become overcooked or even burnt.
As you gain experience in using your microwave oven,
you will become increasingly skillful in estimating both
cooking and standing times for various foods.
Browning: Meats and poultry that are cooked fifteen
minutes or longer will brown lightly in their own fat.
Foods that are cooked for a shorter period of time may
be brushed with a browning sauce to achieve an
appetizing color. The most commonly used browning
sauces are Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and
barbecue sauce. Since relatively small amounts of
browning sauces are added to foods, the original flavor
of recipes is not altered.
Covering: A cover traps heat and steam and causes
food to cook more quickly. You may either use a lid or
microwave cling-film with a corner folded back to prevent
splitting.
Covering with waxed paper: Waxed paper effectively
prevents spattering and helps food retain some heat.
Since it makes a looser cover than a lid or cling-film, it
allows the food to dry out slightly.
Wrapping in waxed paper or paper towel: Sandwiches
and many other foods containing prebaked bread should
be wrapped prior to microwaving to prevent drying out.
Arranging and spacing: Individual foods such as baked
potatoes, small cakes, and hors d’oeuvres will heat more
evenly if placed in the oven and equal distance apart,
preferably in a circular pattern. Never stack foods on top
of one another.
Stirring: Stirring is one of the most important of all
microwaving techniques. In conventional cooking, foods
are stirred for the purpose of blending. Microwaved
foods, however, are stirred in order to spread and
redistribute heat. Always stir from the outside towards
the center as the outside food heats first.
Turning over: Large, tall foods such as roasts and
whole chickens should be turned so that the top and
bottom will cook evenly. It is also a good idea to turn cutup chicken and chops.
Placing thicker portions near the edge: Since
microwaves are attracted to the outside portion of foods,
it makes sense to place thicker portions of meat, poultry
and fish to the outer edge of the baking dish. This way,
thicker portions will receive the most microwave energy
and the foods will cook evenly.
6
Other Helpful Information
Elevating: Thick or dense foods are often elevated so
that microwaves can be absorbed by the underside and
center of the foods.
Piercing: Foods enclosed in a shell, skin, or membrane
are likely to burst in the oven unless they are pierced
prior to cooking. Such foods include both yolks and
whites of eggs, clams and oysters, and many whole
vegetables and fruits.
Testing if cooked: Because foods cook so quickly in a
microwave oven, it is necessary to test food frequently.
Some foods are left in the microwave until completely
cooked, but most foods, including meats and poultry, are
removed from the oven while still slightly undercooked
and allowed to finish cooking during standing time. The
internal temperature of foods will rise between 5°F (3°C)
and 15°F (8°C) during standing time.
Standing time: Foods are often allowed to stand for 3 to
10 minutes after being removed from the microwave
oven. Usually the foods are covered during standing time
to retain heat unless they are supposed to be dry in
texture (some cakes and biscuits, for example). Standing
allows foods to finish cooking and also helps flavors to
blend and develop.
NOTE: It is a common misconception that micro-waves
cook food from the inside out. This comes from heating
filled pastries with a high sugar content, like jelly
doughnuts. The pastry is cool but the filling is very hot! If
you cook a chicken or a roast, you’ll see the outside is
cooked first.
Shape of foods: Microwaves penetrate only about 1
inch (2.5cm) into foods; the interior portion of thick foods
is cooked as the heat generated on the outside travels
inward. In other words, only the outer edge of any food is
actually cooked by microwave energy; the rest is cooked
by convection.
It follows then that the worst possible shape for a food
that is to be microwaved is a thick cube. The corners will
burn long before the center is even warm. Round, thin,
and ring shaped foods cook most successfully in the
microwave.
Quantity of foods: The number of microwaves in your
oven remains constant regardless of how much food is
being cooked. Therefore, the more food you place in the
oven, the longer the cooking time. Remember to
decrease cooking times by at least one-third when
halving a recipe.
HOW FOOD CHARACTERISTICS
AFFECT MICROWAVE COOKING
Density of foods: Light, porous food like cakes and
breads cook more quickly than heavy, dense foods such
as roasts and casseroles. You must take care when
microwaving porous foods that the outer edges do not
become dry and brittle.
Height of foods: The upper portion of tall foods,
particularly roasts, will cook more quickly than the lower
portion. Therefore, it is wise to turn tall foods during
cooking, sometimes several times.
Moisture content of foods: Since the heat generated
from microwaves tends to evaporate moisture, relatively
dry foods such as roasts and some vegetables should
either be sprinkled with water prior to cooking or covered
to retain moisture.
Bone and fat content of foods: Bones conduct heat
and fat cooks more quickly than meat. Therefore, care
must be taken when cooking bony or fatty cuts of meat
that the meats do not cook unevenly and do not become
overcooked.

Cooking Utensils
w CAUTION
To avoid risk of personal injury or property damage, do not use stoneware, alumium foil, metal utensils, or metal trimmed
utensils in the oven.
MICROWAVE-SAFE UTENSILS
4. Plastic storage containers: These can be used to
hold foods that are to be quickly reheated. However,
they should not be used to hold foods that will need
considerable time in the oven as hot foods will eventually
warp or melt plastic containers.
5. Plastic cooking bags: These are microwave-safe
provided they are specially made for cooking. However,
be sure to make a slit in the bag so that steam can
escape. Never use ordinary plastic bags for cooking in
your microwave oven, as they will melt and rupture.
6. Plastic microwave cookware: A variety of shapes
and sizes of microwave cookware is available. For the
most part, you can probably cook with items you already
have on hand rather than investing in new kitchen
equipment.
7. Pottery, stoneware, and ceramic:
Containers made of these materials are usually fine for
use in your microwave oven, but they should be tested
to be sure.
Never use metal or metal-trimmed utensils in your
microwave oven: Microwaves cannot penetrate metal.
They will bounce off any metal object in the oven and
cause arcing, an alarming phenomenon that resembles
lightning. Most heat-resistant non-metallic cooking
utensils are safe for use in your microwave oven.
However, some may contain materials that render them
unsuitable as microwave cookware. If you have any
doubts about a particular utensil, there is a simple way to
find out if it can be used in your microwave oven.
Testing utensils for microwave use: Place the utensil
in question next to a glass bowl filled with water in the
microwave oven. Microwave at power HIGH for 1
minute. If the water heats up but the utensil remains cool
to the touch, the utensil is microwave-safe. However, if
the water does not change temperature but the utensil
becomes warm, microwaves are being absorbed by the
utensil and it is not safe for use in the microwave oven.
You probably have many items on hand in your kitchen
that can be used as cooking equipment in your
microwave oven. Just read through the following
checklist.
1. Dinner plates: Many kinds of dinner-ware are
microwave-safe. If in doubt, consult the manu-facturer's
literature or perform the microwave test, above.
2. Glassware: Glassware that is heat-resistant is
microwave-safe. This includes all brands of oventempered glass cookware. However, do not use delicate
glassware, such as tumblers or wine glasses, as these
might shatter as the food warms.
3. Paper: Paper plates and containers are convenient
and safe to use in your microwave oven, provided
the cooking time is short and foods to be cooked are
low in fat and moisture. Paper towels are also very
useful for wrapping foods and for lining baking trays in
which greasy foods, such as bacon, are cooked. In
general, avoid colored paper products as the color may
run.

AUTO DEFROST
• 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.
• For best results, shape your ground meat into the form of a
doughnut before freezing. When defrosting, scrape off
thawed meat when the beep sounds and continue defrosting.
• Place foods in a shallow container or on a microwave
roasting rack to catch drippings.
• Food should still be somewhat icy in the center when
removed from the oven.
Three defrost sequences are preset in the oven. The
defrost feature provides you with the best defrosting
method for frozen foods. The cooking guide will show
you which defrost sequence is recommended for the
food you are defrosting.
With the Auto Defrost feature, the oven automatically
sets the defrosting time and power levels for you.
The oven automatically determines required defrosting
times for each food item according to the weight you
enter.
For added convenience, the Auto Defrost includes a
built-in beep mechanism that reminds you to check, turn
over, separate, or rearrange. Three different defrosting
levels are provided.
