IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
ABOUT YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
ABOUT MICROWAVE COOKING
This Use and Care Manual is valuable: read it carefully and
always save it for reference.
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas towards outside of dish.
A good microwave cookbook is a valuable asset. Check it for
microwave cooking principles, techniques, hints and recipes.
NEVER use the microwave oven without the turntable and
support nor turn the turntable over so that a large dish could
be placed in the microwave oven. The turntable will turn both
clockwise and counterclockwise. See page 23 for complete
instructions.
ALWAYS have food in the microwave oven when it is on to
absorb the microwave energy.
When using the microwave oven at power levels below 100%,
you may hear the magnetron cycling on and off. It is normal
for the exterior of the microwave oven to be warm to the touch
when cooking or reheating.
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 microwave oven. Generally,
covered foods will not cause as much condensation as
uncovered ones. Ventilation openings must not be blocked.
The microwave oven is for food preparation only. It should not
be used to dry clothes or newspapers.
Your microwave oven is rated 1000 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.
• Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount of
time indicated and add more as needed. Food severely
overcooked can smoke or ignite.
• 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.
• 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.
• Rearrange foods such as meatballs halfway through cooking
both from top to bottom and from the center of the dish to
the outside.
• Add standing time. Remove food from microwave oven and
stir, if possible. Cover for standing time which allows the food
to finish cooking without overcooking.
• Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating that cooking
temperatures have been reached.
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 FOOD

vegetables
• Puncture egg yolks before cooking to prevent
“explosion”.
• Pierce skins of potatoes, apples, squash, hot dogs
and sausages so that steam escapes.
• Cook eggs in shells.
• Reheat whole eggs.
• Dry nuts or seeds in shells.
Popcorn
• Use specially bagged popcorn for microwave cooking.
• Listen while popping corn for the popping to slow
to 1 or 2 seconds or use special popcorn pad.
• Pop popcorn in regular brown bags or glass bowls.
• Exceed maximum time on popcorn package.
Baby food
• Transfer baby food to small dish and heat carefully,
stirring often. Check temperature before serving.
• Put nipples on bottles after heating and shake
thoroughly. “Wrist” test before feeding.
• Heat disposable bottles.
• Heat bottles with nipples on.
• Heat baby food in original jars.
General
• Cut baked goods with filling after heating to release
steam and avoid burns.
• Stir liquids briskly before and after heating to avoid
“eruption”.
• Use deep bowl, when cooking liquids or cereals, to
prevent boilovers.
• Heat or cook in closed glass jars or air tight
containers.
• Can in the microwave as harmful bacteria may not
be destroyed.
• Deep fat fry.
• Dry wood, gourds, herbs or wet papers.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
ABOUT UTENSILS AND COVERINGS
ABOUT CHILDREN AND THE MICROWAVE
It is not necessary to buy all new cookware. Many pieces already in your
kitchen can be used successfully in your new microwave oven. Make
sure the utensil does not touch the interior walls during cooking.
Children below the age of 7 should use the microwave oven with
a supervising person very near to them. Between the ages of 7
and 12, the supervising person should be in the same room.
As with any appliance, close supervision by an adult is
necessary when used by children.
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing on the
microwave oven door.
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.
Don’t assume that because a child has mastered one cooking
skill he/she can cook everything.
Children need to learn that the microwave oven is not a toy. See
page 20 for Child Lock feature.
Use these utensils for safe microwave
cooking and reheating:
•
•
•
•
•
•
glass ceramic (Pyroceram®), such as Corningware®.
heat-resistant glass (Pyrex®)
microwave-safe plastics
paper plates
microwave-safe pottery, stoneware and porcelain
browning dish (Do not exceed recommended preheating time.
Follow manufacturer’s directions.)
These items can be used for short time reheating
of foods that have little fat or sugar in them:
• wood, straw, wicker
DO NOT USE
• metal pans and bakeware
• dishes with metallic trim
• non-heat-resistant glass
• non-microwave-safe plastics (margarine tubs)
• recycled paper products
• brown paper bags
• food storage bags
• metal twist-ties
Should you wish to check if a dish is safe for microwaving, place
the empty dish in the microwave oven and microwave on HIGH for
30 seconds. A dish which becomes very hot should not be used.
The following coverings are ideal:
• Paper towels are good for covering foods for reheating and
absorbing fat while cooking bacon.
• Wax paper can be used for cooking and reheating.
• 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.
• Lids that are microwave-safe are a good choice because heat
is kept near the food to hasten cooking.
• Microwave 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.
How to use aluminum foil in your
microwave oven:
• 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.
• Foil should not come closer than one inch to any surface of
the microwave oven.
Should you have questions about utensils or coverings, check a
good microwave cookbook or follow recipe suggestions.
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. Electrolux is not responsible
for any damage to the microwave oven when accessories are used.
ABOUT SAFETY
• Check foods to see that they are cooked to the United States
Department of Agriculture’s recommended temperatures.
TEMP
FOOD
145°F - For beef, lamb or veal cut into steaks, chops or
(63°C) roasts, fish
160°F - For fresh pork, ground meat, seafood, egg dishes,
(71°C) frozen prepared food and beef, lamb or veal cut into
steaks, chops or roasts
165°F - For leftover, ready-to-reheat refrigerated, deli and
(74°C) carry out “fresh” food, whole chicken or turkey,
chicken or turkey breasts and ground poultry used
in chicken or turkey burgers
NOTE
Do not cook whole, stuffed poultry. Cook stuffing
separately to 165°F.
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 oven use.
• 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.
• 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.
• Stay near the microwave oven while it’s in use and check
cooking progress frequently so that there is no chance of
overcooking food.
• NEVER use the cavity 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.
• Use care when removing items from the microwave oven so
that the utensil, your clothes or accessories do not touch the
safety door latches.
• Keep aluminum foil used for shielding at least 1 inch away
from walls, ceiling and door.

Microwave utensil guide
Do not use
Use
• Oven proof glass (specifically 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.
• Metal decoration:
Bowls, cups, serving plates and platters without metallic trim.
• China:
Bowls, cups, serving plates and platters
without metallic trim.
• 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. Use plastic dishes,
cups, semi-rigid freezer containers and
plastic bags for short cooking times. Use
these with care because the plastic may
soften from the heat of the food.
• Paper:
Paper towls, waxed paper, paper napkins
and paper plates with no metallic trim or
design. Look for the manufacturer’s label
for any special instructions for use in the
microwave oven.
10
• 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 of the oven cavity and door of the microwave.
• Wood:
Wooden bowls and boards will dry out and may split or crack when
you use them in the microwave oven. Baskets made of wood will react
in the same way.
• Tightly covered utensils:
Be sure to leave openings for steam to escape from covered
cookware. Pierce plastic pouches of vegetables or other food items
before cooking. Tightly closed pouches may explode.
• Brown paper:
Avoid using brown paper bags. They absorb heat and can burn.
• Flawed or chipped cooking 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.

MANUAL COOKING
Defrosting tips
• When using the defrost weight feature, the weight
entered should always be pounds (valid entries are from
0.1 to 6.0 pounds).
• The shape of the package will alter the defrosting time.
Shallow rectangular food packets defrost more quickly
than a deep frozen block of food.
• Use both defrost weight and defrost time features for
raw food items only. Defrosting gives best results when
food to be thawed is a minimum of 0°F (taken directly
from a true freezer). If the food has been stored in a
refrigerator-freezer that does not maintain a temperature
of 5° F or below, always program a lower food weight or
lower cook time to prevent cooking the food.
• Separate pieces as they begin to defrost. Separated
frozen pieces of food defrost better.
• If the frozen food is stored outside the freezer for up to 20
minutes, enter a reduced cook time or weight.
• Shield warm areas of food with small pieces of foil if they
start to become warm.
• You may use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield food
items like chicken wings, leg tips and fish tails, but do
not allow the foil to touch the oven cavity walls when
defrosting.
Defrosting suggestions for meats
For best results, please read these suggestions when defrosting meats.

Suggestions for getting
the best results
To help you achieve the best possible results from your
microwave oven, read the following suggestions below;
• Storage temperature
Foods taken from the freezer or refrigerator take longer to
cook than the same foods would at room temperature.
• Size
Small pieces of food cook faster than large ones. Pieces
similar in size and shape will cook more evenly when
cooked together. For more even results, reduce the
power levels when cooking large pieces of food.
• Natural moisture
Very moist foods cook more evenly because microwave
energy heats water molecules very efficiently.
• Stirring
Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetable from the
outside to the center to distribute the heat more evenly.
This will allow the food to cook faster. Constant stirring is
not necessary.
• Turn over items
Turn over foods such as pork chops, roasts or whole
cauliflower halfway through the cook time. This will help
to expose all sides equally to microwave energy.
• Food placement
Place delicate areas of food items, such as asparagus
tips, toward the center of the turntable tray.
• Food arrangement
Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces
or salmon, with the thicker or meatier parts toward the
outside of the turntable tray.
• Let the food stand
After removing the food from the microwave, cover the
food with foil or a casserole lid and let it stand to finish
cooking. This will help the food finish in the center and
avoids overcooking the out edges, The length of stand
time depends on the density and surface area of the food
items.
• Wrapping in paper towels or waxed paper
Sandwiches and many other food types containing prebaked bread should be wrapped prior to placing in the
microwave to help prevent the food items fro drying out
while heating.

Cooking eggs in your microwave
• Never cook eggs in the shell and never warm hardcooked eggs in the shell; they can explode.
• Always pierce whole eggs to keep them from bursting.
• Cook eggs just until set; they will become tough if
overcooked.
19
COOKING CHARTS
Cooking vegetables in your microwave
• Vegetables should be washed just before cooking.
Rarely is extra water needed. If dense vegetables such
as potatoes, carrots and greens are being cooked, add
about ¼ cup of water.
• Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.)
will cook faster than larger vegetables.
• Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or
corn on the cob, should be arranged in a circle on the
turntable before cooking. The will cook more evenly if
turned over halfway through cooking.
• Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli
with the stem ends pointing towards the edge of the dish
and the tips toward the center.
• When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with
a lid or vented microwavable plastic wrap.
• Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash,
eggplant, etc., should have their skin pricked in several
locations before cooking to prevent them from bursting.
• For more even cooking, stir or rearrange whole
vegetables halfway through the cook time.
• Most of the time, the denser the food the longer the
required standing time. For example, a baked potato
should stand for 5 minutes before serving, while a dish of
peas may be served immediately.
Cooking seafood in your microwave
Place fish on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a microwave-safe dish. Be sure to always cook fish until it flakes easily
with a fork. Use a tight cover to steam fish; a lighter cover of wax paper or paper towel provides less steaming. And be sure
not to overcook fish; check it for doneness at a minimum cooking time before cooking longer.

Cleaning suggestions
For best performance and for safety reasons, keep the oven
clean inside and outside. Take special care to keep the
inner door panel and oven fron frame free of food and grease
build-up.
Never use rough scouring powder or pads on the
microwave. Wipe the microwave oven inside and out with a
soft cloth and and warm (not hot) mild detergent solution.
Then rinse and wipe completely dry.
Wipe spatters immediately with a wet paper towel,
especially after cooking greasy foods like chicken or bacon.
Clean your microwave oven weekly or more often, if needed.
• Wash the oven door window with very mild soap and
water. Be sure to use a soft clean cloth to avoid
scratching.
• If steam accumulates inside or outside the oven door,
wipe with a soft cloth. Steam can accumulate when
operating the oven in high humidity and in no way
indicates microwave leakage.
• Never operate the oven without food in the oven cavity;
this can damage the magnetron tube or glass tray. You
may wish to leave a cup of water standing inside the oven
when it is not in use to prevent damage if the oven is
accidentally turned on.
Follow these instructions to clean and care for your
microwave oven:
• Keep the inside (cavity) of the oven clean. Food particles
and spilled liquids can stick to the oven walls, causing
the oven to work less efficiently.
• Wipe up spills immediately. Use a damp, clean cloth
and mild soap. DO NOT use harsh detergents or
abrasive cleaners.
• To help loosen baked-on food particles or liquids, heat 2
cups of water (add the juice of 1 lemon if you desire to
keep the oven fresh smelling) in a 4 cup measuring glass
at High power for 5 minutes or until boiling. Let stand in
oven cavity for 1 or 2 minutes.
• Remove the glass turntable tray from the oven when
cleaning the oven cavity or tray. To prevent the glass
turntable from breaking, handle with care and do not put
it in water immediately after cooking. Wash the turntable
tray in warm sudsy water or in the dishwasher.
• Clean the outside surface of the microwave with soap
and a clean damp cloth. Dry with a clean soft cloth. To
prevent damage to the operating parts of the oven, do not
let water seep into any vents or openings.
