IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Advantium Oven
WARNING!
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
■ Do not operate the oven without
the turntable in place. The turntable
must be unrestricted so it can turn.
■ During and after use, do not touch, or
let clothing or other flammable materials
contact any interior area of the oven;
allow sufficient time for cooling first.
■ Potentially hot surfaces include the
oven door, floor, walls, oven rack and
turntable.
ARCING
FOODS
4
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
■ Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—
meat to at least an INTERNAL
temperature of 160°F, and poultry to
at least an INTERNAL temperature of
180°F. Cooking to these temperatures
usually protects against foodborne
illness.
Arcing can occur during both speedcooking and microwave cooking. If you see arcing,
press the CLEAR/OFF pad and correct the problem.
Arcing is the microwave term for sparks
in the oven. Arcing is caused by:
■ Metal or foil touching the side of
the oven.
■ Foil not molded to food (upturned edges
act like antennas).
■ Use foil only as recommended in
this manual.
■ Metal cookware or the wire oven rack
used during either speedcook or
microwave cooking (except for the pans
provided with the oven).
■ Metal, such as twist-ties, poultry pins,
or gold-rimmed dishes, in the oven.
■ Recycled paper towels containing small
metal pieces being used in the oven.
■ When microwaving, place all foods and
containers on the clear glass tray.
■ Do not pop popcorn in your oven unless in
a special microwave popcorn accessory or
unless you use popcorn labeled for use in
microwave ovens.
■ Do not boil eggs in this oven. Pressure will
build up inside egg yolk and will cause it to
burst, possibly resulting in injury.
■ Do not operate oven without food inside.
This may cause damage to the oven. It
increases the heat around the magnetron
and can shorten the life of the oven.
■ Foods with unbroken outer “skin”
such as potatoes, hot dogs, sausages,
tomatoes, apples, chicken livers and other
giblets, and egg yolks should be pierced to
allow steam to escape during cooking.
■ SUPERHEATED WATER
Liquids, such as water, coffee or tea, are able to
be overheated beyond the boiling point without
appearing to be boiling. Visible bubbling or
boiling when the container is removed from the
microwave oven is not always present. THIS
COULD RESULT IN VERY HOT LIQUIDS
SUDDENLY BOILING OVER WHEN THE
CONTAINER IS DISTURBED OR A SPOON OR
OTHER UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
— Do not overheat the liquid.
— Stir the liquid both before and halfway
through heating it.
— Do not use straight-sided containers with
narrow necks.
— After heating, allow the container to stand
in the microwave oven for a short time
before removing the container.
— Use extreme care when inserting a spoon
or other utensil into the container.

Make sure to use suitable cookware during microwave cooking. Most glass casseroles,
cooking dishes, measuring cups, custard cups, pottery or china dinnerware which does not
have metallic trim or glaze with a metallic sheen can be used. Some cookware is labeled
“suitable for microwaving.”
■ Do not use the wire oven rack for
microwave.
■ Place food or microwavable container
directly on the clear glass tray to cook
your food.
■ Use of a metal tray during microwave
cooking will result in inferior cooking
performance.
■ If you are not sure
if a dish is microwavesafe, use this test:

filled with 1 cup of
water in the oven. Set the measuring cup
either in or next to the dish. Microwave
30-45 seconds at high. If the dish heats,
it should not be used for microwaving.
If the dish remains cool and only the
water in the cup heats, then the dish
is microwave-safe.
■ Cookware may become hot because
of heat transferred from the heated food.
Oven mitts may be needed to handle the
cookware.
■ Use foil only as directed in this manual.
When using foil in the oven, keep the foil
at least 1″ away from the sides of the
oven.
■ If you use a meat thermometer while
cooking, make sure it is safe for use
in microwave ovens.
■ Some foam trays (like those that meat is
packaged on) have a thin strip of metal
embedded in the bottom. When
microwaved, the metal can burn the floor
of the oven or ignite a paper towel.
■ Do not use recycled paper products.
Recycled paper towels, napkins and
waxed paper can contain metal flecks
which may cause arcing or ignite.
Paper products containing nylon or
nylon filaments should be avoided,
as they may also ignite.
■ Paper towels, waxed paper and plastic
wrap can be used to cover dishes in
order to retain moisture and prevent
spattering. Be sure to vent plastic wrap
so steam can escape.
■ Not all plastic wrap is suitable for use
in microwave ovens. Check the package
for proper use.
■ “Boilable” cooking pouches and tightly
closed plastic bags should be slit, pierced
or vented as directed by package
instructions. If they are not, plastic could
burst during or immediately after
cooking, possibly resulting in injury. Also,
plastic storage containers should be at
least partially uncovered because they
form a tight seal. When cooking with
containers tightly covered with plastic
wrap, remove covering carefully and
direct steam away from hands and face.
■ Plastic cookware—Plastic cookware
designed for microwave cooking is very
useful, but should be used carefully. Even
microwave-safe plastic may not be as
tolerant of overcooking conditions
as are glass or ceramic materials. Plastic
may soften or char if subjected to short
periods of overcooking. In longer
exposures to overcooking, the food
and cookware could ignite.
Follow these guidelines:
1. Use microwave-safe plastics only,
and use them in strict compliance
with the cookware manufacturer’s
recommendations.
2. Do not microwave empty containers.
3. Do not permit children to use plastic
cookware without adult supervision.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Advantium Oven
WARNING!
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
■ Don’t defrost frozen beverages in
narrow-necked bottles (especially
carbonated beverages). Even if the
container is open, pressure can build up.
This can cause the container to burst,
possibly resulting in injury.
■ Foods cooked in liquids (such as
pasta) may tend to boil more rapidly
than foods containing less moisture.
Should this occur, refer to the Care
and Cleaning of the oven section for
instructions on how to clean the
inside of the oven.
■ Hot foods and steam can cause
burns. Be careful when opening any
containers of hot food, including popcorn
bags, cooking pouches and boxes.
To prevent possible injury, direct steam
away from hands and face.
■ Do not overcook potatoes. They could
dehydrate and catch fire, causing
damage to your oven.
■ Avoid heating baby food in glass jars,
even with the lid off. Make sure all infant
food is thoroughly cooked. Stir food to
distribute the heat evenly. Be careful to
prevent scalding when warming formula.
The container may feel cooler than the
formula really is. Always test the formula
before feeding the baby.
■ Do not attempt to deep fry in the oven.
■ Do not use the oven to dry newspapers.

The Advantium oven uses
breakthrough Speedcook technology
to harness the power of light. The
Advantium oven cooks the outside
of foods much like conventional
radiant heat, while also penetrating
the surface so the inside cooks
simultaneously.
While halogen light is the primary
source of power, a convection system
and ceramic heater assist in the
cooking, with a “microwave boost”
added in some cooking algorithms.
Food cooks evenly and fast, retaining
its natural moisture.
The Advantium oven is capable of
speedcooking, convection baking,
broiling, toasting, warming, proofing
and microwaving. The Speedcook
feature is the biggest benefit of the
Advantium oven.
No preheating is required to
speedcook. Place the food in the
oven and start cooking immediately.
You see timesaving because there is
no preheat and because speedcook
cooks faster.

Convection baking
Advantium Oven
Convection
Baking
Convection baking allows you to cook foods the
same way as a conventional oven, using a
heating element to raise the temperature of the
air inside the oven. Any oven temperature from
250°F to 450°F may be set.
A fan gently circulates heated air throughout the
oven, over and around the food. Because the
heated air is kept constantly moving, not
permitting a layer of cooler air to develop around
the food, some foods cook slightly faster than in
regular oven cooking.
Before you begin, make sure the turntable is in
place. Use the metal tray at all times when single
or two-level baking.
The turntable must always be
in place when using the oven.
Put food or oven-safe cookware
directly on the metal tray.
Put food directly on the metal tray or in the
appropriate dish and place on wire oven rack
when baking or warming on two levels.
CAUTION! When baking, remember that the
oven, door and dishes will be very hot!

begin preheating.
The oven starts preheating
immediately. Do not place food in
oven. (You will be prompted to enter
a cook time, after oven is preheated.)
2. When the oven is finished
preheating, it will signal. If you do not
open the door within 1 hour, the

Cooking Tips
for Convection
Baking
■ When cooking items that go directly
onto the metal tray, do not place the
tray into the oven during preheat.
Place the food directly onto the tray,
and place the metal tray with food
onto the turntable after the oven is
finished preheating.
■ When cooking items in a dish to be
placed on the metal tray, place the
metal tray in the oven during
preheat for optimum cooking
performance.
■ For two-level baking, install the wire
rack on the 4 rack supports and a
metal tray on the turntable. Baking
dishes can be placed directly onto
the wire rack and the turntable.
■ If baking trays are required for
cooking foods like cookies or
biscuits, use the metal trays
supplied with the oven to place on
the wire rack and on the turntable
for best performance.

Cooking
Tips for
Broiling
■ Broiling times may be shorter in the
Advantium oven because of the use
of halogen lamps. Make sure to
monitor food closely to get the
desired results.
■ For best results when broiling, place
food directly on the metal grill tray.
■ Broiling meats in the oven may
produce smoke.
■ If preheating the oven to broil meat,
preheat with the metal grill tray in
the oven and place food on the hot
metal tray for best searing of meat.
■ Most foods should be turned
halfway through broiling time. Dense
foods such as meaty, bone-in
chicken pieces should be turned
about 3/4 of the way through
broiling time.
■ Remove thinner pieces as needed to
prevent overcooking and drying.
Cooking
Tips for
Toasting
■ For best results when toasting, use
the metal tray.
■ Most foods should be turned over
2/3 of the way through toasting time
when not preheating.
■ When using the preheat option, turn
food halfway through the cooking
time.
■ To crisp exterior but maintain
moistness inside foods, preheat the
oven.
■ To crisp exterior and crisp the inside
too, do not preheat the oven.
■ Toast thicker pieces a longer time,
thinner pieces a shorter time.

Defrosting
tips
Use DEFROST BY FOOD TYPE for meat,
poultry and fish. Use DEFROST BY TIME
for most other frozen foods.
■ Foods frozen in paper or plastic can
be defrosted in the package when
using DEFROST BY TIME. Foods
should be taken out of the package
when using DEFROST BY FOOD
TYPE. Closed packages should be
slit, pierced or vented after food has
partially defrosted. Plastic storage
containers should be partially
uncovered.
■ Family-size, prepackaged frozen
dinners can be defrosted and
microwaved. If the food is in a foil
container, transfer it to a
microwave-safe dish.
Defrost by
time
Use DEFROST BY TIME to defrost for a
selected length of time.
1. Press the DEFROST pad.
2. Turn the selector dial to DEFROST
BY TIME. Press the dial to enter.
3. Turn the dial to select the time you
want. Press the dial to enter.
4. Press the dial or START/PAUSE pad
to start defrosting.
5. Turn the food over when the oven
signals TURN FOOD OVER.
■ The power level is automatically
set at high, but you can change it
for more flexibility. (See Microwave
power levels for instructions.)
■ Foods that spoil easily should not
be allowed to sit out for more than
one hour after defrosting. Room
temperature promotes the growth
of harmful bacteria.
■ For more even defrosting of
larger foods, such as roasts, use
DEFROST BY TIME. Be sure large
meats are completely defrosted
before cooking.
■ When defrosted, food should be
cool but softened in all areas.
If still slightly icy, return to the
microwave very briefly, or let
it stand a few minutes.
■ When defrosting 3 or more pounds
of ground or cubed meat, remove
defrosted portions at the turn
signals.
■ Power level is automatically set
at 3, but can be changed. To
change the power levels, see
Microwave power levels for
instructions.).
You can defrost small items quickly by
raising the power level after entering
the time. Power level 7 cuts the total
defrosting time in about half; power
level 10 cuts the total time to about
1/3. When defrosting at high power
levels, food will need more frequent
attention than usual.

Microwave
sensor
cooking tips
The sensor feature detects the
increasing humidity released during
cooking. The oven automatically adjusts
the cooking time to various types and
amounts of food.
Do not use the sensor features twice in
succession on the same food portion—
it may result in severely overcooked or
burnt food. If food is undercooked after
the first countdown, use COOK BY TIME
for additional cooking time.
Covered
The proper containers and covers are
essential for best sensor cooking.
Vented
■ Always use microwave-safe
containers and cover them with lids
or vented plastic wrap.
Never use tight sealing plastic
containers—they can prevent
steam from escaping and cause
food to overcook.
■ Be sure the outside of the cooking
containers and the inside of the
oven are dry before placing food
in the oven. Beads of moisture
turning into steam can mislead
the sensor.
Dry off dishes so they don’t
mislead the sensor.
■ Beverages are best heated
uncovered.

Microwaving and Other Advantium Features
Advantium Oven
To use all
sensor
programs
The Advantium’s microwave mode
features sensor cooking. The oven
automatically senses when food is
done and shuts itself off—eliminating
the need to program cook times and
power levels.
1. Press the COOK pad and turn the
dial to COOK BY FOOD TYPE. Press
the dial to enter. Or press the
REHEAT pad.
Notes about the Reheat program:
3. Press the dial or press the START/
PAUSE pad to start cooking.
Reheated foods may have wide
variations in temperature. Some areas
may be extremely hot.
Do not open the oven door until time
is counting down in the display.
If the door is opened, close it and
press START/PAUSE immediately.
It is best to use COOK BY TIME and
not REHEAT for these foods:
■ If you have been cooking and the
oven is hot, it may indicate that it is
too hot for sensor cooking. In that
case, the oven will automatically
change to time cooking and may
prompt for weights or amounts of
food.
26
■ If you open the door while SENSOR
Cooking, SENSOR ERROR will
appear. Close the door immediately
and press START/PAUSE to begin
again.
2. Turn the dial to select the food you
want. Press the dial to enter.
NOTE: Do not use a sensor feature
twice in succession on the same food
portion—it may result in severely
overcooked or burnt food. If the food
is not done enough at the end of the
sensor cook time, use COOK BY TIME
in the microwave selector to cook for
more time.
“COOK TIME
COMPLETED”
■ To shorten or lengthen the
cook time, wait until the time
countdown shows in the display.
Then turn the dial to add or
subtract time.
To remind you that you have food
in the oven, the oven will display
COOK TIME COMPLETED and beep
once a minute until you either
open the oven door or press the
CLEAR/OFF pad.
■ Bread products
■ Food that must be reheated
uncovered
■ Foods that need to be stirred
or turned
■ Foods calling for a dry look or crisp
surface after reheating.

Care and Cleaning
Advantium Oven and
Accessory Storage Drawer
(with some models)
How to clean
the inside of
the oven and
the accessory
storage
drawer (with
some models)
Be certain the oven control is turned
off and the oven is warm or cool to
the touch before cleaning any part of
this oven.
Clean the inside of the oven often for
proper heating performance.
Some spatters can be removed with
a paper towel, others may require
a warm soapy cloth. Remove greasy
spatters with a sudsy cloth, then
rinse with a damp cloth.
If the dirt and spatter do not come off
easily with a warm sudsy cloth, place
a medium sized bowl full of water in
the unit on the metal tray and CUSTOM
SPEEDCOOK for 10 minutes at U=10,
L=10, M=7, C=10. This should loosen
the dirt in the oven so that it can be
removed with a warm sudsy cloth.
If you notice yellowing on the metal
inside the oven that cannot be removed
with a warm sudsy cloth, use a
stainless steel cleaner that removes
heat discoloration and/or tarnishing.
You can then clean the inside of the
oven as you normally do.
Do not use abrasive cleaners or sharp
utensils on oven walls or the accessory
storage drawer.
Removable
turntable
Never use a commercial oven cleaner
on any part of your oven or the
accessory storage drawer.
Do not clean the inside of the oven
or the accessory storage drawer with
metal scouring pads. Pieces can break
off the pad inside the oven, causing
electrical shock as well as damaging
the inside surface finish of the oven
or the accessory storage drawer.
The area underneath the turntable should
be cleaned frequently to avoid odors and
smoking during a cooking cycle.
The turntable can be broken if dropped.
Wash carefully in warm, sudsy water.
Dry completely and replace.
To replace the turntable, place its
center over the spindle in the center of
the oven and turn it until it seats into
place. (Make sure the smooth side of
the turntable marked “TOP” is facing up
and that its center seats on the spindle.)
Turntable
Do not use the oven without the
turntable in place.

Care and Cleaning
Advantium Oven and
Accessory Storage Drawer
(with some models)
Cooking trays
and wire
oven rack
To prevent breakage, allow the trays to
cool completely before cleaning. Wash
carefully in hot, sudsy water or in the
dishwasher.
Clear glass tray
Metal tray
Halogen
lamp cover
and mica
sheet
Do not use abrasives to clean the glass
tray or wire oven rack, as they may
damage the finish.
A soap-filled scouring pad may be
used to clean the metal trays.
Wire oven rack
Metal grill tray
Do not remove the halogen lamp
glass cover or the mica sheet.
The upper halogen lamp cover must
be kept free of grease and food
spatterings in order to operate
effectively.
Clean the lamp glass cover and mica
sheet often to avoid excess smoking
and decreased cooking power.
Upper
halogen
lamp cover
Mica sheet
To clean the upper lamp cover: Allow
the oven and glass cover to cool
completely. Wipe clean with a warm
soapy cloth or plastic scrubbie.
For heavy burned on soil, a cleaning
scraper may be used to clean the
halogen lamp cover. Wearing an oven
mitt, hold the cleaning scraper at a 30°
angle. Scrape the glass clean and wipe
up excess soil.
To clean the mica sheet: Allow the
oven to cool completely. Wipe clean
with a warm soapy cloth.

Care and Cleaning
Advantium Oven and
Accessory Storage Drawer
(with some models)
How to clean
the outside of
the oven and
the accessory
storage
drawer (with
some models)
We recommend against using
cleaners with ammonia or alcohol, as
they can damage the appearance of
the oven or the accessory storage
drawer. If you choose to use a
common household cleaner, first
apply the cleaner directly to a clean
cloth, then wipe the soiled area.
Glass Control Panel, Door and
Drawer (on some models)
Wipe with a clean damp sponge.
Dry thoroughly. Do not use cleaning
sprays, large amounts of soap and
water, abrasives or sharp objects on
the panel—they can damage it.
Door Seal
It’s important to keep the area
clean where the door seals against
the oven. Use only mild, non-abrasive
detergents applied with a clean
sponge or soft cloth. Rinse well.
Stainless Steel
(on some models)
To clean the stainless steel surface,
use warm sudsy water or a stainless
steel cleaner or polish. Always wipe the
surface in the direction of the grain.
Follow the cleaner instructions for
cleaning the stainless steel surface.
To inquire about purchasing
stainless steel appliance cleaner or
polish, or to find the location of a
dealer nearest you, please call our
toll-free number, 800.626.2002 or
visit ge.com.
