ABOUT MICROWAVE COOKING
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas towards outside

Cover
• Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount of time
indicated and add more as needed. Food severely overcooked
can smoke or ignite.
Sealing
Surface
• Cover foods while cooking. Check recipe or cookbook for
suggestions: paper towels, wax paper, microwave plastic wrap
or a lid. Covers prevent spattering and help foods to cook
evenly.

sticker, if there is one.
Cavity
Check the drawer for
any damage, such as
misaligned or bent drawer, damaged drawer seals and
sealing surfaces, broken or loose drawer guides and dents
inside the cavity or on the front side of the drawer. If there
is any damage, do not operate the Microwave in a Drawer
and contact your dealer or a DACOR AUTHORIZED
SERVICER.
• Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum foil any thin areas
of meat or poultry to prevent overcooking before dense, thick
areas are cooked thoroughly.
• Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or twice during
cooking, if possible.
• Turn foods over once during microwaving to speed cooking
of such foods as chicken and hamburgers. Large items like
roasts must be turned over at least once.
RADIO OR TV INTERFERENCE
Should there be any interference caused by the Microwave in
a Drawer to your radio or TV, check that the Drawer is on a
different electrical circuit, relocate the radio or TV as far away
from the drawer as feasible or check position and signal of
receiving antenna.
• Rearrange foods such as meatballs halfway through cooking
both from top to bottom and from right to left.
• Add standing time. Remove food from Drawer and stir, if
possible. Cover for standing time which allows the food to
finish cooking without overcooking.
ABOUT your Microwave in a
Drawer
• Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating that cooking
temperatures have been reached.
ALWAYS have food in the Drawer when it is on to absorb the
microwave energy.
The vent under the Microwave in a Drawer must not be blocked.
During microwaving, steam may come from the right side of
the vent.
When using the Microwave in a Drawer at power levels below
100%, you may hear the magnetron cycling on and off. It is
normal for the exterior of the drawer to be warm to the touch
when cooking or reheating.
Doneness signs include:
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
- Center bottom of dish is very hot to the touch.
- Poultry thigh joints move easily.
- Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
- Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
ABOUT UTENSILS AND COVERINGS
Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking. Room
humidity and the moisture in food will influence the amount of
moisture that condenses in the Drawer. Generally, covered foods
will not cause as much condensation as uncovered ones.
It is not necessary to buy all new cookware. Many pieces
already in your kitchen can be used successfully in your new
Microwave. Make sure the utensil does not touch the interior
walls during cooking.
The Microwave in a Drawer is for food preparation only. It
should not be used to dry clothes or newspapers.
Use these utensils for safe microwave cooking and reheating:
Your Microwave in a Drawer is rated 950 watts by using the
IEC Test Procedure. In using recipes or package directions,
check food a minute or two before the minimum time and add
time accordingly.
• glass ceramic (Pyroceram®), such as Corningware®.
• heat-resistant glass (Pyrex®)
• microwave-safe plastics
• microwave-safe paper plates
Information You need to Know
• microwave-safe pottery, stoneware and porcelain
OPEN OR CLOSE DRAWER
• browning dish (Do not exceed recommended preheating
time. Follow manufacturer’s directions.)
Always press the OPEN or CLOSE pad on the control panel to
open or close the Drawer.
These items can be used for short time reheating of foods that
have little fat or sugar in them:
Do not push or pull the Drawer by hand, except in case of
emergency, such as a power failure. If necessary, push or
pull slowly.
• wood, straw, wicker
DO NOT USE
ABOUT CHILDREN AND THE
MICROWAVE
• metal pans and bakeware
• dishes with metallic trim
Children below the age of 7 should use the Microwave in a
Drawer with a supervising person very near to them. Between the
ages of 7 and 12, the supervising person should be in the same
room. The child must be able to reach the drawer comfortably.
• non-heat-resistant glass
• non-microwave-safe plastics (margarine tubs)
• recycled paper products
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or sit on the
Microwave in a Drawer.
• brown paper bags
• food storage bags
Children should be taught all safety precautions: use potholders,
remove coverings carefully, pay special attention to packages
that crisp food because they may be extra hot.
• metal twist-ties
Should you wish to check if a dish is safe for microwaving,
place the empty dish in the oven and microwave on HIGH for 30
seconds. A dish which becomes very hot should not be used.
Donʼt assume that because a child has mastered one cooking
skill he/she can cook everything.
The following coverings are ideal:
Children need to learn that the Microwave in a Drawer is not a
toy. See page 16 for Control Lock feature.
• Paper towels are good for covering foods for reheating and
absorbing fat while cooking bacon.
ABOUT SAFETY
• Wax paper can be used for cooking and reheating.
• Check foods to see that they are cooked to the United States
Department of Agricultureʼs recommended temperatures.
• Plastic wrap that is specially marked for microwave use can
be used for cooking and reheating. DO NOT allow plastic
wrap to touch food. Vent so steam can escape.
160˚F - For fresh pork, ground meat, boneless white poultry,
fish, seafood, egg dishes and frozen prepared food.
• Lids that are microwave-safe are a good choice because heat
is kept near the food to hasten cooking.
165˚F - For leftover, ready-to-reheat refrigerated, and deli and
carry-out “fresh” food.
• Oven cooking bags are good for large meats or foods that
need tenderizing. DO NOT use metal twist ties. Remember
to slit bag so steam can escape.
170˚F - White meat of poultry.
180˚F - Dark meat of poultry.
How to use aluminum foil in your Drawer:
To test for doneness, insert a meat thermometer in a thick or dense
area away from fat or bone. NEVER leave the thermometer in the
food during cooking, unless it is approved for microwave use.
• Small flat pieces of aluminum foil placed smoothly on the
food can be used to shield areas that are either defrosting or
cooking too quickly.
• ALWAYS use potholders to prevent burns when handling
utensils that are in contact with hot food. Enough heat from
the food can transfer through utensils to cause skin burns.
• Foil should not come closer than one inch to any surface of
the Microwave in a Drawer.
Should you have questions about utensils or coverings, check a
good microwave cookbook or follow recipe suggestions.
• Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from the face and
hands. Slowly lift the farthest edge of a dish’s covering and
carefully open popcorn and oven cooking bags away from
the face.
ACCESSORIES There are many microwave accessories
available for purchase. Evaluate carefully before you purchase
so that they meet your needs. A microwave-safe thermometer
will assist you in determining correct doneness and assure you
that foods have been cooked to safe temperatures. Dacor is not
responsible for any damage to the Drawer when accessories
are used.
• Stay near the Microwave in a Drawer while it’s in use and
check cooking progress frequently so that there is no chance
of overcooking food.
Information You need to Know
• NEVER use the Microwave in a Drawer for storing cookbooks
or other items.
• Select, store and handle food carefully to preserve its high
quality and minimize the spread of foodborne bacteria.
• Keep waveguide cover clean. Food residue can cause arcing
and/or fires. See page 18.

MANUAL DEFROST
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food the rule of
thumb is approximately 4 minutes per pound. For example,
defrost 4 minutes for 1 pound of frozen spaghetti sauce.
If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on the
DEFROST CHART or is above or below the limits in the
AMOUNT column on the DEFROST CHART, you need to
defrost manually.
Always stop the oven periodically to remove or separate
the portions that are defrosted. If food is not defrosted at
the end of the estimated defrosting time, program the oven
in 1 minute increments on Power Level 30% until totally
defrosted.
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously
cooked, by using Power Level at 30%. Follow the exact 3-step
procedure found under TO SET POWER LEVEL on page
11. Estimate defrosting time and press POWER LEVEL
pad eight times for 30% power.
When using plastic containers from the freezer, defrost only
long enough to remove from the plastic in order to place in
a microwave-safe dish.

Cleaning and Care
Exterior
Interior
The outside surface is precoated metal and plastic. Clean
the outside with mild soap and water; rinse and dry with
a soft cloth. Do not use any type of household or abrasive
cleaner.
Cleaning is easy because no heat is generated to the interior
surfaces; therefore, there is no baking and setting of spills or
spattering. To clean the interior surfaces, including drawer
sealing surfaces, wipe with a soft damp cloth. DO NOT USE
ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS OR SCOURING
PADS. For heavier soil, use mild soap; wipe clean with a soft
damp cloth. Do not use any chemical oven cleaners.
Stainless Steel Surface (select models)
The exterior should be wiped often with a soft damp cloth
and polished with a soft dry cloth to maintain its beauty.
Always wipe in the direction of the grain. There are also
a variety of products designed especially for cleaning and
shining the stainless exterior of the oven. We recommend
that the cleaner be applied to a soft cloth and then carefully
used on the stainless exterior rather than sprayed directly on
to it. Follow package directions carefully.
Microwave in a Drawer Guides
Remove the food crumbs from the Drawer guides. Wipe with
a soft dry cloth in order to keep the Microwave in a Drawer
opening and closing smoothly.
Waveguide Cover
Wipe the window on both sides with a soft damp cloth to
remove any spills or spatters. Metal parts will be easier to
maintain if wiped frequently with a soft damp cloth. Avoid
the use of spray and other harsh cleaners as they may stain,
streak or dull the door surface.
The waveguide cover, located on the inside
top of the Microwave area, is made from mica, so it
requires special care. Keep the waveguide cover clean to
assure good microwave performance. Carefully wipe with
a soft damp cloth any food spatters from the surface of
the cover immediately after they occur. Built-up splashes
may overheat and cause smoke or possibly catch fire. Do
not remove the waveguide cover.
Touch Control Panel
Odor Removal
ATTENTION
Front side of the Drawer
If desired, the touch pads may be deactivated before cleaning.
See the Control Lock information on page 16 of this manual.
Wipe the panel with a cloth dampened slightly with water
only. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not scrub or use any sort of
chemical cleaners. Close door and follow directions on page
16 for turning Control Lock off. Touch STOP/CLEAR.
Occasionally, a cooking odor may remain in the Drawer. To
remove, combine 1 cup water, grated peel and juice of one
lemon and several whole cloves in a 2-cup glass measuring
cup. Boil for several minutes using 100% power. Allow to
set in the Microwave in a Drawer until cool. Wipe interior
with a soft cloth.
