precautions
To reduce the risk of bums, fire, electrical
shock, injury to persons, or damage when
using the microwave oven, follow the
precautions on pages 6-7.
Never lean on the door or allow a child to
swing on it when the door is open. Injury could
result.
Never cook or reheat a whole egg lnslde
the shell. Steam build-up in whole eggs may
cause them to burst and bum you, and
possibly damage the oven. Slice hard-boiled
eggs before heating. In rare instances,
poached eggs have been known to explode.
Cover poached eggs and allow a standing
time of one minute before cutting into them.
Stir before heating
For best results, stir thick liquids several
times before heating or reheating. Liquids
Usa hot pads. Microwave energy does not
heat containers, but the hot food does.
NOTE: Heat from the grill will cause container
and oven parts to become hot. Also, the
Crisper Pan always becomes very hot when
used. Use oven mitts when touching containers, oven parts, and pan after grilling to
prevent burns.
heated in certain containers (especially
cylindrical containers) may become overheated. The liquid may splash out with a loud
noise during or after heating or when adding
ingredients (coffee, etc.) resulting in harm to
the oven and possible personal injury.
Do not overcook potatoes. Fire could result.
At the end of the recommended cooking time,
potatoes should be slightly firm because they
will continue cooking during standing time.
After microwaving, wrap potatoes in foil and
set aside for 5 minutes. They will finish
cooking while standing.

Magnetron
I
Mlcrowave ovens are safe. Microwave
energy is not hot. It causes food to make its
own heat, and it’s this heat that cooks the food.
Microwaves are like TV waves or light
waves. You cannot see them, but you can see
what they do.
‘Oven cavity
A magnetron in the microwave oven produces
microwaves. The microwaves move into the
oven where they contact food as it turns on the
glass turntable.
Your mlcrowave oven has the Whlrlpool
patented DUO SYSTEMTMheatlng system,
which releases microwaves in two locations
(one above food and one at bottom of food) for
perfectly uniform cooking.

In most mkrowave ovens, mkrowaves may

glass turntable, and are absorbed by the food.
not reach the center of a roast. The heat
spreads to the center from the outer, cooked
areas just as in conventional cooking. This is
one of the reasons for letting some foods (for
example, roasts or baked potatoes) stand for a
while after cooking, or for stirring some foods
during the cooking time.
The microwaves disturb water molecules in
the food. As the molecules bounce around
bumping into each other, heat is made, like
rubbing your hands together. This is the heat
that does the cooking.
Although your VIP CRISPWAVETM microwave oven cooks this way also, the DUO
SYSTEMTM heating system allows microwaves
to reach the center of the food more easily.
This results in faster cooking.
Mlcrowaves pass through most glass, paper
and plastics without heating them so food
absorbs the energy. Microwaves bounce off
metal pans so food does not absorb the
energy.
Microwaves do heat the CRISPWARE’M
Crisper Pan, however. The rubberized pad on
the bottom of the Crisper Pan is made of a
special material which absorbs microwaves.
This heats the pan very rapidly, browning and
crisping the bottom of the food.

Cooking
at lower
cook
powers
For best results, some recipes call for lower
Cook Powers. The lower the Cook Power, the
slower the cooking. Each Number Pad also
stands for a different percentage of Cook
Power. Many microwave cookbook recipes tell
you by number, percent or name which Cook
Power to use.
The following chart gives the percentage of
Cook Power each Number Pad stands for, and
the Cook Power name usually used. It also
tells you when to use each Cook Power:

Fish, Vegetables, and Fruit. All you do is touch
the Number Pad assigned to the desired
category and enter the weight of the items
being heated. Your microwave oven does the
rest.
NOTE: Standing time is included in AUTO
DEFROST times. This may make defrost times
seem longer than in other microwave ovens.

You are probably used to food weights as
being in pounds and ounces that are fractions
of a pound (for example 4 ounces equals ‘1’4
pound). However, in order to enter food weight
in AUTO DEFROST, you must specify pounds
and tenths of a pound. If the weight on the
food package is in fractions of a pound, you
can use the following chart to convert the
weight to decimals.

tips
When uslng AUTO DEFROST, the weight to
be entered is the net weight in pounds and
tenths of pounds (the weight of the food
minus the container).
Only use AUTO DEFROST for raw food.
AUTO DEFROST gives best results when
food to be thawed is a minimum of 0°F
(taken directly from a “true” freezer). If food
has been stored in a refrigerator-freezer that
does not maintain a temperature of 0°F or
below, always program a lower food weight
(for a shorter defrosting time) to prevent
cooking the food.
If the food Is stored outside the freezer for
up to 20 minutes, enter a lower food weight.
tf the food Is stored outside the freezer for
more than 20 minutes, and for defrosting
ready-made food, defrost by time and power
(see chart in Cookbook) and let stand after
defrosting.

The shape of the package alters the
defrosting time. Shallow rectangular packets
defrost more quickly than a deep block.
Separate pieces as they begin to defrost.
Separated pieces defrost more easily.
You can use small pieces of aluminum foil
to shield foods like chicken wings, leg tips,
and fish tails, but the foil must not touch the
side of the oven. Foil can damage the oven
lining.
Shleld areas of food with small pieces of
foil if they start to become warm.
For better results, a preset standing time
is included in the defrosting time. This may
make the defrosting time seem longer than
expected. (For more information on standing
time, see “Cooking tips” on page 44.)

fresh bags of popcorn.
. POPCORN is designed for commercially
bagged microwave popcorn. if you are using
a microwave popcorn popper, ioiiow
instructions with the popper for cooking time.
l Use only 1 package at a time.
l Use only popcorn packages designed for
microwave ovens or a microwave-approved
popcorn popper.
l Do not use the W-Level Cooking Shelf when
popping bagged microwave popcorn or other
convenience foods that may be packaged in
a container with susceptor material. The
susceptor material gets very hot, which helps
to heat, brown or crisp food. This high heat
can melt the shelf.

Fire and Bum Hazard
l
l
Do not try to repop unpopped kernels
and do not reuse popcorn bags. Fire
could result.
if you remove the turntable right after
popping popcorn, use oven mitts. it will
be very hot and could burn you.

CRISP
Use CRISP to crisp or bake. Use it also to fry
bacon and eggs, sausages, and other similar
foods. You must place food on the
CRiSPWARETU Crisper Pan when using this
function. (See ‘Utensils” on page 13 for more
information on the Crisper Pan.) Microwaves
heat the Crisper Pan very rapidly to brown and
crisp the bottom of your food, while the grill
element cooks your food from the top.
There are two Crisp settings from which
you can choose. Crlsp 1 uses the grill element
for the first 50% of the total cooking time and
microwaves for the rest of the time. Use this
setting for fish dishes, meatloaf and nachos.
Crisp 2 uses microwaves only for the first 60%
of the total cooking time and the grill element
for the rest of the time. Use this setting for
cakes, pies, brownies, and egg roils.
Bum Hazard
Use oven mitts when removing the hot
Crisper Pan. Use caution when allowing
children to use Crisper Pan.
Failure to do so could result in burns.
NOTE: Refer to the Cookbook for examples of
types of food that cook best in each Crisp
setting.
33
1. Place food on Crisper Pan, put
pan on turntable, and close
door.
NOTES:
l The Crisper Pan can be preheated before

Caring For Your Microwave
Oven
To make sure your microwave oven looks good and works well for a long time, you should maintain it properly. To do so, please follow these instructions carefully.
Cleaning the
microwave
oven
NOTES:
l Your VIP CRISPWAVE’” microwave oven
l
has a stainless steel interior. Unlike the
painted steel interiors found in most other
microwave ovens, the surface will not chip,
rust or corrode.
Do not use metal scouring pads on inside of
oven cavity. They will scratch the surface.
Be sure to keep the areas clean where the
door and oven trame touch when closed.
Use only mild, nonabrasive soaps or detergents applied with a sponge or paper towel
when cleaning surfaces. Rinse well.
Product Damage Hazard
Wipe often with warm, sudsy water and a
sponge or paper towel. You can remove the
glass turntable to clean the oven cavity floor;
however, this oven is designed to operate with
the turntable in place. Do not operate the
microwave oven when turntable is removed for
cleaning. See page 7 for further information
about the turntable.
For stubborn soil, boil a cup of water in the
oven for 2 or 3 minutes. Steam will soften the
soil. To get rid of odors inside the oven, boil a
cup of water with lemon juice.
40
Abrasive cleansers, steel-wool pads, gritty
wash cloths, etc., can damage the control
panel, and the interior and exterior oven
surfaces. Use a sponge with a mild detergent or a paper towel with spray glass
cleaner. Apply spray glass cleaner to paper
towel; do not spray directly on oven.
To clean turntable and turntable support,
wash in mild, sudsy water; for heavily soiled
areas use a mild cleanser and scouring
sponge. The turntable and turntable support
are dishwasher-safe.

tips
Covering
of food
The more food you want to prepare, the
longer it takes. A rule of thumb is that a
double amount of food requires almost
double the time. If one potato takes four
minutes to cook, you need about seven
minutes to cook two potatoes.
l
l
l
l
Releasing
with the Bi-Level Cooking Shelf. For example, you can cook two frozen dinners or
reheat two plates of food by placing one on
the shelf and one under the sheff. The DUO
SYSTEMTM heating system will heat both
servings equally.
Starting
l
temperature
l
of food
being put into the microwave oven, the
longer it takes to cook. Food at room
temperature will be reheated more quickly
than food at refrigerator temperature.
l
l
Using
of food
Food with a lot of fat and sugar will be
heated faster than food containing a lot of
water. Fat and sugar will also reach a higher
temperature than wafer in the cooking
process.
The more dense the food, the longer it
takes to heat. “Very dense” food like meat
takes longer to reheat than lighter, more
porous food like sponge cakes.
l
l
Size and shape
l
l
Smaller pieces of food will cook faster than
larger pieces and same-shaped pieces of
food cook more evenly than irregularly
shaped foods.
With unevenly shaped foods, the thinner
parts will cook faster than the thicker areas.
Place the thinner parts of chicken wings and
legs in the center of the dish.
Stirring,
l
turning
foods
Stirring and turning foods distributes heat
quickly to the center of the dish and avoids
overcooking at the outer edges of the food.

pressure
in foods
Several foods (for example: baked potatoes,
sausages, egg yolks, and some fruits) are
tightly covered by a skin or membrane. This
can cause the food to burst from steam
building up in them during cooking. To
relieve the pressure and to prevent bursting,
prick these foods with a fork, cocktail pick or
toothpick.
NOTE: Food cooked in the CRISPWARETM
Crisper Pan will not burst and does not need
to be pricked.

cover food to:
l
standing
time
Always allow food to stand for a while after
cooking. Standing time after defrosting,
cooking, or reheating always improves the
result since the temperature will then be
evenly distributed throughout the food.
When cooking in a microwave oven, food
continues to cook even when the microwave
energy is fumed off. Food is no longer
cooked by microwaves, but if is still being
cooked by the high heat left over from the
microwave oven.
The length of the standing time depends
on the volume and density of the food.
Sometimes if can be as short as the time it
fakes you to remove the food from the oven
and take it to the serving table. However,
with larger, denser food, the standing time
may be as long as 10 minutes. During
standing time, the internal food temperature
will rise as much as 46°F as the food finishes
cooking.
Arranging
food
l
For best results, distribute food evenly on the
plate. You can do this in several ways:
if you are cooking several items of the
same food, such as baked potatoes, place
l
l
them in a ring pattern for uniform cooking.
l
When cooking foods of uneven shapes or
thickness, place the smaller or thinner area
l
of the food towards the center of the dish
where it will be heated last.
Arrange uneven foods, such as fish, in the
oven with the tails to the center.
l
l
l
l
if you are saving a meal in the refrigerator
or “plating” a meal for reheating, arrange the
l
thicker, denser foods to the outside of the
plate and the thinner or less dense foods in
the middle.
Place thin slices of meat on top of each
other or interface them.
Place thicker slices of meat, such as meat
loaf and sausages close to each other.
Reheat gravy or sauce in a separate
container.
Choose a tail, narrow container rather
than a low and wide container. When
reheating gravy, sauce or soup, do not fill
the container more than 95.
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
When you cook or reheat whole fish,
score the skin - this prevents cracking.
Shield the tail and head of whole fish with
small pieces of foil to prevent overcooking
and ensure the foil does not touch the sides
of the oven.
Do not let food or container touch the top or
sides of the oven. This will prevent possible
arcing.
Using
aluminum

l
foil
Metal containers usually should not be used in
a microwave oven. There are, however, some
exceptions. If you have purchased food which
is prepackaged in an aluminum foil container,
then refer to the instructions on the package. It
is possible to use disposable containers, but it
generally takes longer and the final result will
not be as good as if food were placed in plastic
or paper containers. If you use aluminum
containers without package instructions, follow
these guidelines:
l Do not place container on the wire Grilling
Rack. Sparking may occur.
Piace container in a glass bowl and add
some water so that it covers the bottom of
the container, not more than ‘/4 inch high.
This ensures even heating of the container
bottom.
Always remove the lid to avoid damage to
the oven.
Use only undamaged containers.
Do not use containers taller than Vi’.
Container must be half filled.
To avoid sparking, there must be a minimum VI’ between the aluminum container
and the walls of the oven and also between
two aluminum containers.
Always piace container on turntable.
Thkkness of the food layer must be
greater than thickness of the aluminum.
Reheating food in aluminum foil containers
usually takes up to double the time compared to reheating in plastic, glass, china, or
paper containers. The time when food is
ready will vary a great deal.
Let food stand for 2-3 minutes after heating
so that heat is spread evenly throughout
container.
l
Do not do canning of foods in the oven.
Closed glass jars may explode, resulting in
damage to the oven or possible personal
injury.
Do not use the oven to sterilize objects
(baby bottles, etc.). It is difficult to maintain
the high temperature required for safe
sterilization.

Questions
And Answers
QUESTIONS
ANSWERS
Can I operate my microwave oven without
the turntable or turn the turntable over to
accommodate a large dish?
No. If you remove or turn over the turntable, you
will get poor cooking results. Dishes used in you
oven must fit on the turntable.
Can I use a rack in my microwave oven so
that I may reheat or cook on two levels at a
time?
Yes. Use the Bi-Level Cooking Shelf provided
with your oven.
Can I use either metal or aluminum pans fol
microwave cooking?
Useable metal includes aluminum foil for
shielding (use small, flat pieces), small skewers
and shallow foil trays (if tray is %I inch deep and
filled with food to absorb microwave energy).
When grilling, use the specially designed
CRISPWARETM Crisper Pan that comes with
your oven. Never allow metal to touch walls or
door. (For more information, see page 45.)
Is it normal for the turntable to turn in either
direction?
Yes. The turntable rotates clockwise or counterclockwise, depending on the rotation of the
motor when the cooking cycle begins.
Sometimes the door of my microwave oven
appears wavy. Is this normal?
This appearance is normal and does not affect
the operation of your oven.
What are the humming noises that I hear
when my microwave oven is operating?
You hear the sound of the transformer when the
magnetron tube cycles on.
Why does the dish become hot when I
microwave food in it? I thought that this
should not happen.
As food becomes hot it will conduct the heat to
the dish. Also, when grilling keep in mind that thl
CRISPWARETM Crisper Pan is made of a
special material that absorbs microwave energy
making the pan very hot for browning. Be
prepared to use hot pads to remove food after
cooking and grilling.
The first time I preheated the grill element I
smelled something and saw smoke. Why?
The grill element was burning off the factory
coating used during manufacturing.
What does “standing time” mean?
“Standing time” means that food should be taker
out of the oven and covered for additional time
after cooking. This process allows the cooking tc
finish, saves energy and frees the oven for
another purpose.
Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven?
How do I get the best results?
Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn following manufacturer’s guidelines or use the
preprogrammed Popcorn pad. Do not use
regular paper bags. Use the “listening tesr by
stopping the oven when the popping slows to a
ypop” every one or two seconds. Do not try to
repop unpopped kernels. You can also use
special microwave poppers. When using a
popper, be sure to follow manufacturer’s directions. Do not pop popcorn in glass utensils or on
plastic Bi-Level Cooking Shelf.
