Important safety warnings
Read carefully these instructions and keep for
future reference.
N.B. This oven has been designed to defrost, heat
and cook food in the home. It must never be used
for other purposes, modified or tampered with in
any way.
1) WARNING: If the door or door seals are damaged,
the oven must not be operated until it has been
repaired by a competent person (trained by the
manufacturer or by its Customer Service).
2) WARNING: It is hazardous for anyone other than a
competent person to carry out any service or repair
operation which involves the removal of a cover
which gives protection against exposure to
microwave energy.
3) WARNING: Liquids and other foods must not be
heated in sealed containers since they are liable to
explode. Eggs in their shell and whole hard-boiled
eggs should not be heated in microwave ovens
since they may explode even after microwave
heating has ended.
4) WARNING: Accessible parts may become hot
during use. Young children should be kept away. Do
not allow the appliance to be used by persons
(including children) with psychological, physical or
sensory impairments, or with inadequate experience
or knowledge, unless closely supervised and
instructed by someone responsible for their safety
who can ensure they are aware of the dangers
associated with inappropriate use. Children must be
supervised to ensure they do not play with the
appliance.
5) WARNING: When the appliance is operated in the
combination mode, children should only use the
oven under adult supervision due to the
temperatures generated.
6) Do not attempt to operate the oven with the door
open by tampering with the safety devices.
7) Do not operate the oven if objects for any kind get
stuck between the front panel of the oven and the
door. Always keep the inside of the door (E) clean,
using a damp cloth and non-abrasive detergents.
Do not allow dirt or remains of food to accumulate
between the front panel of the oven on the door.
8) Do not operate the oven if the supply cable or the
plug is damaged, as this may result in electric
shocks. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be
replaced by the manufacturer or its service agent
or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a
hazard.
9) If smoke is observed, switch off or unplug the
appliance and KEEP THE DOOR CLOSED in order
to stifle any flames.
10)Only use utensils that are suitable for use in
microwave ovens. In order to avoid overheating
and the consequent risk of fire, it is advisable to
supervise the oven when cooking food in
disposable containers made of plastic, cardboard
or other inflammable materials, and when heating
small quantities of food.
11)Never place the turntable in water after it has ben
heated for a long time. The high thermal shock
resulting would break the turntable.
12)When cooking "Only MICROWAVE" and
"COMBINED WITH MICROWAVE" , you absolutely
must not pre-heat the oven (without foodstuffs in it)
and you must not operate it when it is empty,
because you might cause sparking.
13)Before using this oven, check to be certain that the
utensil and containers chosen are suitable for
microwave oven use (see the section on
"Glassware and Similar Items").
14)The temperature of the door or the outer surface
may be high when the appliance is operating. Do
not touch the heating elements inside the oven.
15)When heating liquids (water, coffee, milk, etc.) it is
possible that the contents may suddenly start to boil
and spill violently as a result of delayed boiling,
causing scalding. To avoid this happening, you
should place a heat-resistant plastic spoon or a
glass rod in the container before starting to heat
liquids. Anyway, care shall be taken when handling
the container.
16)Do not heat spirit with a high alcohol content, nor
large quantities of oil, as these could catch fire !
17) The contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars
shall be stirred or shaken and the temperature
shall be checked before consumption in order to
avoid burns. It is also advisable to stir or shake the
food in order to ensure that it has an even
temperature. When using commercially available
bottle sterilisers, before turning the oven on,
ALWAYS make sure the container is filled with the
quantity of water indicated by the manufacturer.
18)Failure to maintain the oven in a clean condition
could lead to deterioration of the surface that could
adversely affect the life of the appliance and
possibly result in a hazardous situation.
19)Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal
scrapers to clean the oven door glass since they
can scratch the surface, which may result in
shattering of the glass.
20)All microwaves are tested and approved in
accordance with current electromagnetic safety and
compatibility regulations and standards. As a
precautionary measure, pacemaker manufacturers
recommend wearers to keep a minimum distance of
20-30 cm between an operating microwave oven
and the pacemaker in order to avoid possible
interference with the pacemaker. If you suspect
that such an interference is occurring, turn the oven
off immediately and contact the pacemaker
manufacturer.
21)If the oven overheats (prolonged use, use empty,
etc), the safety thermostat could turn the oven off.
After cooling down, the oven will operate as normal.
22)The door or the outer surface may get hot when the
appliance is operating.
N.B. When the oven is used for the first time it is
possible that, for a period of approx. 10 minutes, it
may produce a “new” smell and a small amount of
smoke. This is only a result of protective
substances applied to the heating element

on Electromagnetic Compatibility and EC regulation
no. 1935/2004 of 27/10/2004 on materials intended for
contact with food.
The product is classified as Group 2, Class B ISM
equipment. The definition of Group 2 which contains
all ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) equipment
in which radio-frequency energy is intentionally
generated and/or used in the form of electromagnetic
radiation for the treatment of material, and spark
erosion equipment.
For Class B equipment is equipment suitable for use
in domestic establishments and in establishments
directly connected to a low voltage power supply
network which supplies buildings used for domestic
purpose.
Installation and electrical connection
Il forno deve tassativamente essere incassato ad una
altezza minima di 850 mm.
1) Remove all the accessories and wash them.
2) Clean the inside with a soft, damp cloth.
3) Check that there is no damage as a result of
transportation, and in particular that the door opens
23
GB
GB
and closes properly.
4) Place the support (H) in the centre of the circular
groove and fix the turntable (G) to it. The spindle
(D) should be inserted in the corresponding groove
in the centre of the turntable.
5) After the installation has been performed, the
power supply cable and the power socket must be
easy to access.
6) Only a qualified electrician may install or relocate a
socket outlet.
7) Only connect the appliance to a power socket with
a power capacity of at least 16A. Also make sure
that the main switch installed in your home has a
minimum power capacity of 16A in order to avoid it
suddenly tripping while the oven is on.
8) Before use, check that the power supply voltage is
the same as the one shown on the rating label and
that the power outlet is properly earthed: the
manufacturer disclaims any liability in the event of
non-compliance with this safety regulation.
9) The majority of modern electronic appliances (TV,
radio, stereo systems etc) are shielded from radio
frequency (RF) signals. Certain electronic
appliances may not, however, be shielded from
radio frequency signals deriving from a microwave
oven. You should therefore keep a distance of at
least 1 - 2 metres between these appliances and the
operating oven.
Ovenware to be used
You can make use of all types of containers made of
glass (preferably Pyrex), ceramics, porcelain and
glazed pottery as long as they do not have
decorations or metal parts (gilded borders, handles,
feet). Heat resistant plastic containers can also be
used, but only for “Microwave Only” cooking. If you
are still doubtful about using a particular container,
you can perform a simple test. Place the empty
container in the oven for 30 seconds at maximum
power (“Microwave Only” function).
If the container is still cold or only slightly warm, it is
suitable for microwave cooking.
If it is very hot or gives out sparks, it is not suitable.
For short heating periods, you may use paper
napkins, cardboard trays and plastic “throwaway”
plates as a base.
As far as shape and size are concerned, it is
absolutely essential that containers be such as to
allow the turntable to rotate.
In order to use large-size rectangular containers
(which may not be able to rotate inside the cooking
cavity), you can remove the spindle (D) from its
housing to prevent the turntable (G) moving. Bear in
mind that to be assured of good results when carrying
this out you must stir the food and turn the container
around several times during the cooking process.
Containers made of metal, wood, recycled kitchen
paper, cane and plate glass are not suitable for use in
microwave ovens. The metal grill rack supplied with
your microwave have been fully tested for safe use.
You should remember, too, that since microwaves
heat the food and not the glassware, earthenware or
similar containers for that food, it is possible to cook
such foods in the serving dish and thereby avoid the
problem of having to clean pans later.
If the oven is used in its grill only functions, any type
of oven container may be used (see chart).

Rules and general suggestions for
using the oven
Microwaves consist of electromagnetic radiation found
in nature under the form of light waves (e.g., sunlight).
Inside the oven, these waves penetrate food from all
directions and heat up the water, fatty and sugar
molecules. Heat is produced very quickly only in the
food itself, whereas the container being used warms
up indirectly by meansof heat given off by the heated
food. This prevents food from sticking to its container,
so you can use very little fatty substance or, in some
cases, no fat at all during the cooking process.
Therefore cooking in a microwave oven is considered
to be healthy and good for one’s diet. And in contrast
to traditional methods, cooking in a microwave
foodstuffs are less dehydrated, lose less of their
nutritional value, and retain more of their original
flavour.
Basic rules for correct cooking with a microwave
oven
1) In order to set cooking times correctly, remember
(in referring to the charts on the following pages)
that when you increase the amount of foodstuffs
the cooking temperature must likewise be
proportionately increased and vice-versa. It is
important to respect the “standing” times: standing
time means that period during which the food must
be left to “rest” after being cooked so as to allow an
even greater spreading of the temperature within.
The temperature of meat, for example, will rise
about 5°-8° C. (approx. 9°-15° F.) during the
standing time. Standing times may be observed
either inside or outside the oven.
2) One of the main things you must do is stir the food
several times while it is being cooked. This helps
make the temperature distribution more uniform
and thus shortens the cooking time.
3) It is also advisable to turn the foodstuff over during
its cooking process: this applies especially for
meat, whether it is in large pieces (roasts, whole
chickens, etc.) or small (chicken breasts, etc.).
4) Foods having a skin, shell or peel (e.g., apples,
potatoes, tomatoes, frankfurters, fish) must be
pierced with a fork in several points so as to permit
steam to escape and to prevent those items from
exploding.
5) If you are preparing a large number of portions of
the same food item (e.g., boiled potatoes), place
those portions in a Pyrex dish in order to have
them cook in a uniform manner:
6) The lower the temperature at which a foodstuff is
placed in a microwave oven, the longer the cooking
time required. Food having a room temperature will
26
cook more quickly than food having a refrigerator
temperature.
7) Always do your cooking by placing the food
container in the centre of the turntable.
8) It is perfectly normal for condensation to form
inside the oven and near the air outlet.
To reduce such condensation, cover the foodstuffs
with clear-sheet, wax paper, a glass lid or simply
an overturned plate. Then, too, foods having a
water content (e.g., greens and vegetables) cook
better when covered. The covering of food also
helps keep the oven clean on the inside. Use clearsheet made expressly for microwave ovens.
9) Do not cook eggs in their shells: the pressure
which builds up on the inside would cause the egg
to explode, even after cooking has finished. Do not
heat up eggs which have already been cooked,
unless they are scrambled.
10)Do not forget to open containers which are air-tight
or sealed before heating or cooking food in the
oven. The pressure on the inside of the container
would rise, causing them to explode even after
cooking has finished.

Turning the oven on using only
microwave function
Place the food in a container
suitable for microwave cooking
and place it in the centre of the
turntable
N.B: You do not have to preheat the oven.
Check to make sure that the
programme selector knob is in
position
simply by turning the timer knob to its “0” setting. You
may also change the cooking time (while the cooking
itself is in progress) by turning that same knob back or
forth.
You can check on the situation while the cooking is in
progress by opening the door and examining the food.
That move will interrupt the oven’s operations, but
they will begin again once the door has been closed.
Using the microwave only function to
keep food hot
This function enables you to keep food hot, whether
that food be just cooked or re-heated, without having it
get dry or stick to its container.
Selecting the
power level and covering the
food with a plate or plastic film, you will find that foods
will remain warm up to serving time
You can leave foods in their cooking container if they
are covered.
Using the microwave only function to
defrosting
•
•
Choose the power level you
want by turning the power
selector knob.
•
•
•
Set the cooking time desired by
turning the timer knob in a
clockwise direction.
•
Foods frozen in bags or plastic sheeting or in their
packaging may be placed directly in the oven, as
long as they have no metal parts (e.g., bands or
closure rivets).
Certain foods, such as greens, vegetables and
fish, do not have to be completely defrosted before
you begin cooking them.
Stewed foods and meats as well as meat sauces
defrost better and quicker if they are stirred from
time to time, turned over or separated.
While defrosting, meat and fish lose their liquid
content. It is recommended, therefore, that you
defrost such items in a tray or basin.
It is advisable to separate each individual piece of
meat from its bag before putting it in the freezer.
This will help you save valuable time will preparing
foods.
Be careful about following the cooking times
printed on frozen products, because those times
are not always correct. It is best to use defrosting
times slightly less than those indicated. The time
needed for defrosting will vary in terms of the
degree to which the food has been frozen.
Once the set cooking time has
expired, a buzzer will sound to
signal that your food is ready.
It is possible to interrupt the
oven’s operations at any time

Using the microwave only function to
re-heating
Heating food in a microwave oven is much quicker
and energy efficient than traditional methods.
• We recommend that you heat foodstuffs (especially
if they are frozen) to a temperature of at least 70°
C. (it must be piping hot!). Leave to stand for a few
minutes as you will not be able to eat that food
immediately because it will be too hot.
This will ensure that any possible bacteria present
in food will have been killed.
28
•
To heat pre-cooked or frozen foods, follow these
rules:
- remove the food from its metal containers;
- cover it with plastic wrap (the clear-film type
suitable for microwave ovens) or wax paper; in
this way, all the food’s natural flavour will be
preserved and the oven will stay cleaner; you
may also cover the food with an upside-down
plate;
- if possible, stir or turn the food over frequently
so as to speed up the heating process and
keep the heat uniform at the same time;
-
•
follow the cooking times listed with great
caution; remember that under certain conditions
the timings given must be lengthened
Frozen foods must be defrosted before the heating
process begins. The lower the food’s initial
temperature, the longer the time needed for
heating.
•
Foodstuffs and drinks may be heated briefly in
paper or plastic containers. In any event, however,
such containers may become misshapen if the
heating time is too long.

Using the microwave only functionfor
cooking
Soups and rice
Soups or broth usually require a smaller amount of
liquid because the evaporation in microwave ovens is
rather limited. Because it is a dehydrating agent, salt
must be added only when the cooking is finished or
during the standing time.
It is correct to say that the temperature required for
cooking rice in a microwave oven (as is true also for
pasta) is more or less the same as that needed to
cook this foodstuff over a burner on a regular stove.
The advantage of preparing a risotto dish in a
microwave oven lies in the fact that you do not have to
stir the rice constantly (two or three times is enough).
The ingredients are placed in a container suitable for
microwave ovens and covered with plastic wrap (for
about 300 gr. of rice, you need 750 gr. of broth with
the oven programmed at top power for about 12 to 15
minutes). In addition, the rice will not stick to the
bottom of its container and, since it can be cooked in a
tureen or some other such receptacle to be brought to
the table, you will not have to transfer that rice to a
serving plate.
Meats
When using the microwave-only function to cook
meat, you should cover the meat with plastic wrap
made for microwave oven use; in this way, the heat is
distributed better and you will prevent the loss of
juices that often leads to dried-up and stringy meat.
This oven function is suitable for making stews,
goulash, chicken breasts, etc. To prepare roasts and
skewered meat dishes (among others), you must use
the combined function.
Fish
In a microwave oven, fish can be prepared very
quickly and with excellent results. You can season it
with a little oil or butter (or not season it at all, if you so
prefer). Cover the fish with clear-sheet. The skin is to
be slit, of course, and filleted fish must be placed in a
uniform fashion. We recommend that you not use this
oven to cook fish which has been dipped in egg batter.
Green and vegetables
Greens and vegetables cooked in a microwave oven
retain more of their colour and nutritional value than
when cooked in traditional ovens. Before cooking
greens and vegetables, wash and clean them.
Larger-sized varieties of this category are to be cut up
into uniform pieces.
Per every 500 gr. of greens or vegetables add about 5
teaspoons of water (fibre-type vegetables need more
30
water).
Greens and vegetables must always be covered with
plastic wrap.
Stir greens and vegetables at least once at the
halfway point. Add a little salt only at the end.
Fruit and baked goods
Baked goods rise (at lower oven power) much more
than then do with regular baking. Since no crust is
formed, it is better to garnish the surface portions with
cream or icing (e.g., chocolate); in addition, you must
keep the item being baked fully covered, because
such foodstuffs tend to dry out more quickly than
those baked in a regular oven. Fruit is to be pierced if
cooked with its peel on and is to be kept covered: it is
essential that you adhere to the standing time (3 to 5
minutes).

You can check on the situation while the cooking is
in progress by opening the door and examining the
food. That move will interrupt the oven’s
operations, but they will begin again once the door
has been closed.
It is possible to interrupt the oven’s operations at
any time simply by turning the timer knob to its “0”
setting.
Using the combined microwave + grill
function to cook
This setting is ideal for all those dishes which have to
be “au gratin” or must be given a certain colour. You
must keep the following in mind.
• Do not spunkle seasonings in general (use only
1/2 cup of water to keep meat tender).
• Turn roasts and large cuts of meat over when they
are half-cooked.
• If the upper portion seems sufficiently browned
before the set time has expired, turn the
programme Timer knob to position “0”. To check on
•
how the food is cooking, open the oven door. This
will interrupt the microwave operations, but the grill
will continue to operate. We recommend, therefore,
that you use a pot holder. The door must always be
closed again after you have checked the food
being cooked.
In cooking with the combined grill function, do not
pre-heat the oven and do not operate the oven if
there are no foodstuffs in it.

Care and cleaning
Cleaning
Always switch off at the power socket, disconnect the
plug and wait for the appliance to cool down, before
any cleaning and maintenance is carried out.
The internal cavity of your oven is covered with a
special non-stick finish to which splashes and food
particles do not stick, making cleaning particularly
simple. Always keep the microwave outlet cover (C)
clean and free from grease and splashes of fat.
Do not use abrasive
detergents, wire sponges and
sharp metal tools when
cleaning the external surface of
the oven.
It is also advisable not to use
alcohol, abrasive detergents or
ammonia-based detergents to
clean the internal and external surfaces of the door.
Do not steam clean the inside of the oven.
Always keep the inside of the
door clean to ensure that it
closes properly, so that dirt and
food residues do not become
trapped between the door and
the front panel of the oven.
Do not immerse the turntable in cold water after
prolonged heating; the sudden change in temperature
would cause it to crack.
The turntable motor is sealed. When cleaning the
bottom, you should nevertheless take care to avoid
water penetrating under the turntable spindle (D).
Important information for correct disposal of the
product in accordance with EC Directive
2002/96/EC.
At the end of its working life, the product must
not be disposed of as urban waste.
It must be taken to a special local authority
differentiated waste collection centre or to a
dealer providing this service.
Disposing of a household appliance
separately avoids possible negative
consequences for the environment and health deriving
from inappropriate disposal and enables the
constituent materials to be recovered to obtain
significant savings in energy and resources.As a
reminder of the need to dispose of household
appliances separately, the product is marked with a
crossed-out wheeled dustbin.
Check from time to time that
the ventilation openings
located on the back and
underneath the cabinet which
houses the appliance are free
from any obstructions or dust.
Contact your Service
Assistance Centre for any
necessary controls of the
ventilation openings found on
the back of the appliance.
It is necessary to remove the
turntable (G) and its
corresponding support (H)
periodically in order to clean
them; the bottom of the oven
should also be cleaned.
Wash the turntable and its support in soapy water
using mild soap. They can also be washed in a
dishwasher.

which is generated inside the oven to escape and condense inside the oven,
on the cooking surface or around the doorframe.
•
Do not turn the oven on without food in Microwave and Combined cooking
modes.
Do not use metal containers for the above cooking modes or bags or packets
with metal parts.
