Getting to Know Your Microwave Oven
This section discusses the concepts behind microwave cooking. It also shows the basics that you need to know in
order to operate your microwave oven. Please read this information before using your oven.
HOW YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS
Magnetron
Microwave ovens are safe. Microwave energy is not hot. It
causes food to make its own heat, and it is this heat that cooks
the food.
Microwaves are like TV waves, radio waves, or light waves. You
cannot see them, but you can see the results of what they do.
A magnetron in the microwave oven produces microwaves. The
microwaves move into the oven where they contact food as it
turns on the turntable.
The glass turntable of your microwave oven lets microwaves
pass through. The microwaves then bounce off a metal floor,
Oven cavit y
back through the glass turntable, and are absorbed by the food.
Metal floorG
lass turntable
Microwaves pass through most glass, paper, and plastics
without heating them, so food absorbs the energy. Microwaves bounce off metal containers so food does
not absorb the energy.
RADIO INTERFERENCE
Using your microwave oven may cause interference to your radio, TV, or similar equipment. When there is
interference, you can reduce it or remove it by:
•Cleaning the door and sealing surfaces of the oven.
•Adjusting the receiving antenna of the radio or television.
•Moving the receiver away from the microwave oven.
•Plug the microwave oven into a different outlet so that the microwave oven and receiver are on different
branch circuits.
FOR THE BEST COOKING RESULTS
•Always cook food for the shortest cooking time recommended. Check to see how the food is cooking. If
needed, touch Add 30 Sec while the oven is operating, or after the cooking cycle is over (see the “Add
30 Sec” section).
•Stir, turn over, or rearrange the food being cooked about halfway through the cooking time for all
recipes. This will help ensure that the food is evenly cooked.
•If you do not have a cover for a dish, use wax paper, or microwave-approved paper towels or plastic
wrap. Remember to turn back a corner of the plastic wrap to vent steam during cooking.

GETTING TO KNOW YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
COOKWARE GUIDE
Most heat resistant, nonmetallic cookware is safe for use in your microwave oven. However, to test
cookware before using, follow these steps:
1. Place empty cookware in the microwave oven.
2. Measure 1 cup (250ml) of water in a glass measuring cup and place it in the oven beside
the cookware.
3. Microwave on 100% power for 1 minute. If the dish is warm, it should not be used for
microwave cooking.
NOTE:
Some dishes (melamine, some ceramic dinnerware, etc.) absorb microwave energy, becoming too hot to
handle and slowing cooking time. Cooking in metal containers, not designed for microwave use, could
damage the oven, as could containers with hidden metal (twist-ties, foil lining, staples, metallic
glaze or trim).
OPERATING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
• Never lean or allow a child to swing on the door when it is open.
• Use hot pads. Microwave energy does not heat containers, but the heat from the food can make the
container hot.
• Do not use newspaper or other printed paper in the oven.
• Do not dry flowers, fruit, herbs, wood, paper, gourds, or clothes in the oven.
• Do not start a microwave oven when it is empty. This may shorten the life-span of the oven. To practice
programming, put a container of water in the oven before starting. It is normal for the oven door to look
wavy after the oven has been running for a while.
• Do not try to melt paraffin wax in the oven. Paraffin wax will not melt in a microwave oven because it
allows microwaves to pass through it.
• Do not operate the microwave oven unless the glass turntable is securely in place and can rotate freely.
The turntable can rotate in either direction. Make sure the turntable is correct-side up in the oven.
Handle your turntable with care when removing from the oven to avoid breaking it.
• When using a browning dish, the browning dish bottom must be at least 3 ⁄16 inch above the turntable.
Follow the directions supplied with the browning dish.
• Never cook or reheat a whole egg inside the shell. Steam buildup in whole eggs may cause them to
burst, and possibly damage the oven. Slice hard-boiled eggs before heating. In rare cases, poached eggs
have been known to explode. Cover poached eggs and allow a standing time of one minute before
cutting into them.
• For best results, stir any liquid several times during heating or reheating. Liquids heated in certain
containers (especially containers shaped like cylinders) may overheat. The liquid may splash during or
after heating or when adding ingredients (coffee granules, tea bags, etc.). This can harm you or damage
the microwave oven.
• Microwaves may not reach the center of a roast. The heat spreads from the outer to the center cooked
areas, just as in regular oven 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.
• Do not deep fry in the oven. Microwavable utensils are not suitable and it is difficult to maintain
appropriate deep-frying temperatures.
• Do not overcook potatoes. At the end of the recommended cooking time, potatoes should be slightly firm
because they will continue cooking during standing time. After microwaving, let potatoes stand for 5
minutes. They will finish cooking while standing.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
If your electric power line or outlet voltage is less than 110 volts, cooking times may be longer. Have a
qualified electrician check your electrical system.

Microwave Cooking Tips
Amount of Food
Releasing Pressure in Foods
•If you increase or decrease the amount of food
you prepare, the time it takes to cook that food
will also change. For example, if you double a
recipe, add a little more than half the original
cooking time. Check for readiness and, if
necessary, add more time in small increments.
•Several foods (for example: baked potatoes,
sausages, egg yolks, and some fruits) are tightly
covered by a skin or membrane. Steam can build
up under the membrane during cooking, causing
the food to burst. To relieve the pressure and
to prevent bursting, pierce these foods before
cooking with a fork, cocktail pick, or toothpick.
Starting Temperature of Food
•The lower the temperature of the food being
put into the microwave oven, the longer it takes
to cook. Food at room temperature will reheat
quicker than food at refrigerator temperature.
Using Standing Time
•Always allow food to stand, either in or out of
the oven, after cooking power stops. Standing
time after defrosting and cooking allows the
temperature to evenly spread throughout the
food, improving the cooking results. For inside

MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS
Using Aluminum Foil
NOTE: Metal containers should not be used in a microwave oven. There are, however, some exceptions. If you
have purchased food prepackaged in an aluminum foil container, refer to the instructions on the package.
When using aluminum foil containers, cooking times may be longer because microwaves will only penetrate
the top of the food. When using aluminum containers without package instructions, follow these guidelines:
• Place the container in a glass bowl and add some water so that it covers the bottom of the container;
no more than 1⁄4 in. (.64 cm) 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 3⁄4 in. (1.9 cm).
• Container must be at least half filled.
• To avoid arcing, there must be a minimum 1⁄4 in. (.64 cm) between the aluminum container and the
walls of the oven and also between two aluminum containers.
• Always place the container on the turntable.
• Shield, with small pieces of aluminum foil, parts of food that may cook quickly; such as wing tips and
leg ends of poultry.
• Heating 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 depending upon the
type of container used.
• Let food stand for 2 to 3 minutes after heating so that heat is spread evenly throughout container.
Cooking you should not do in your microwave oven
• Do not put canned foods in the oven. Closed glass jars may explode, resulting in damage to the oven.
• Do not use the microwave oven to sterilize objects (baby bottles, etc.). It is difficult to keep the oven at
the high temperature needed for sterilization.

AUTO DEFROST
OPERATING TIPS
Four defrost sequences are preset in the oven.
The auto defrost feature provides you with the best
defrosting method for frozen foods. The cooking
guide will show you which defrost sequence is
recommended for the food you are defrosting.
For added convenience, the Auto Defrost includes
a built-in beep mechanism that reminds you to
check, turn over, separate, or rearrange the food in
order to get the best defrost results. Four different
defrosting levels are provided:
•For best results, remove fish, shellfish, meat, and
poultry from its original closed paper or plastic
package (wrapper). Otherwise, the wrap will hold
steam and juice close to the foods, which can
cause the outer surface of the foods to cook.
•For best results, roll your ground meat into a ball
before freezing. During the DEFROST cycle, the
microwave will signal when it is time to turn the
meat over. Scrape off any excess frost from the
meat and continue defrosting.
•Place foods in a shallow container or on a
microwave roasting rack to catch drippings.

DEFROSTING TIPS
•When using 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).
•Before starting, make sure to remove any and
all metal twist-ties that often come with frozen
food bags, and replace them with strings or
elastic bands.
•Open containers, such as cartons, before
placing in the oven.
•Always slit or pierce plastic pouches or
packaging.
•If food is foil wrapped, remove foil and place it
in a suitable container.
•Slit the skin of skinned food, such as sausage.
•Bend plastic pouches of food to ensure even
defrosting.
•Always underestimate defrosting time. If
defrosted food is still icy in the center, return it
to the microwave oven for more defrosting.
•The length of defrosting time varies according
to how solidly the food is frozen.
•The shape of the package affects how quickly
food will defrost. Shallow packages will defrost
more quickly than a deep block.
•As food begins to defrost, separate the pieces.
Separated pieces defrost more easily.
•Use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield parts
of food such as chicken wings, leg tips, fish tails,
or areas that start to get warm. Make sure the
foil does not touch the sides, top, or bottom of
the oven. The foil can damage the oven lining.
•For better results, let food stand after defrosting.
(For more information on standing time, see the
“Microwave Cooking Tips” section).
•Turn over food during defrosting or standing time.
Break apart and remove food as required.
• Use the DEFROST PLATE provided for complete
defrosting.
• A DEFROST PLATE is provided for complete
defrosting of larger food items.Place the
defrost plate on the glass tray with TOP Mark
Up. Place the item to be defrosted directly on
the defrost plate.
• Do not use DEFROSTPLAT together with METAL RACK .
• Make sure DEFORST PLATE worked with food.
It Can’t work no load.

USING SENSOR COOKING
POTATO (EXAMPLE)
SENSOR OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Sensor Cook allows you to cook most of your
favorite foods without selecting cooking times
and power levels. The oven automatically
determines required cooking time for each food
item. When the internal sensor detects a certain
amount of humidity coming from the food,
it will tell the oven how much longer to heat.
The display will show the remaining heating
time. For best results by Sensor, following these
recommendations:
•Food cooked with the sensor system should be
at normal storage temperature.
•The Glass Tray and outside of the container
should be dry to assure best cooking results.
•Foods should always be covered loosely with
microwavable plastic wrap, waxed paper
or a lid.
•Do not open the door or touch the STOP key
during the sensing time. When sensing time is
over, the oven beeps twice and the remaining
cooking time will appear in the display window.
At this time you can open the door to stir, turn
or rearrange the food.
SENSOR COOKING GUIDE
Appropriate containers and coverings help assure
good Sensor Cooking results.
•Always use microwavable containers and cover
them with lids or vented plastic wrap.
•Never use tight-sealing plastic covers. They can
prevent steam from escaping and cause food to
overcook.
•Match the amount to the size of the container.
Fill containers at least half way for best results.
•Be sure that the outside of the cooking container
and the inside of the microwave oven are dry
before placing food in the oven. Beads of
moisture turning into steam can mislead
the sensor.

Understanding TrueCookPlus ®
HOW TO USE TrueCookPlus®
TrueCookPlus is a registered trademark of
Microwave Science JV LLC. USA and world wide.
WHAT IS TrueCookPlus® ?
TrueCookPlus® is the first way ever developed to
microwave cook using a code found on
packaged food.
TrueCookPlus® SETUP
After unpacking and plugging in your
TrueCookPlus® oven, take a few moments to tell
TrueCookPlus® your zip code.
Example : Setup your ZIP code
1. Press the STOP button.
2. Press the TrueCookPlus® button
three times.
EXAMPLE: USING TrueCookPlus®
1. Press the STOP button.
2. Find the simple
TrueCookPlus® code on your
favorite food package or at
http://www. TrueCookPlus.com.
On your food package,
your TrueCookPlus® code
will appear on the
TCP logo.
3. Press the TrueCookPlus® button on your microwave
oven keypad.
4. You will hear a tone, then
enter the TrueCookPlus® code on your microwave
oven keypad.
5. For example, enter 1 2 3 4.
The display shows:
C 1 2 3 4 TOUCH START
6. Press the START button.
3. Enter your five digit U.S.
Post Office zip code.
4. Press the START button.
Once TrueCookPlus® knows your zip code,
every time you enter a TrueCookPlus® code,
TrueCookPlus® will automatically adjust for
your elevation above sea level.
NOTE: In case of a power failure, your zip
code does not need to be reset. Your zip code
is saved in the microwave oven memory. If the
microwave oven is moved into a new zip code,
the oven must be set up for the new zip code.
7. TrueCookPlus® now manages
your microwave cooking
automatically. When
TrueCookPlus® is done, you
will hear a tone to indicate
the cooking is done.
8. You must enter the
TrueCookPlus® code
exactly as it appears on the
food package or at
http://www. TrueCookPlus.com.
If you enter an invalid
TrueCookPlus® code, your
oven will display
CODE ERROR.
If you make a mistake while entering
the numeric code or fail to press the
TrueCookPlus® button before entering the
code, your food may undercook, overcook or
even burn.

Caring for Your Microwave Oven
In order to ensure that your microwave oven looks good and works well for a long time, you should maintain it
properly. For proper care, please follow these instructions carefully.
For interior surfaces: Wash often with warm, sudsy
water and a sponge or
soft cloth.
Use only mild,
nonabrasive soaps or a
mild detergent. Be sure
to keep the areas clean
where the door and
oven frame touch
when closed. Wipe well
with clean cloth.
Over time, surfaces may stain as a result of food
particles splattering during cooking. This
is normal.
For stubborn soil: Boil a cup of water in the oven
for two to three minutes.
Steam will soften the soil.
To get rid of odors inside
the oven, boil a cup of
water with some lemon
juice or vinegar in it.
For exterior surfaces and control panel: Use a soft
cloth with spray glass
cleaner. Apply the spray
glass cleaner to the soft
cloth; do not spray
directly on the oven.
NOTE: Abrasive
cleansers, steel wool
pads, gritty wash
cloths, some paper
towels, etc., can damage
the control panel and the interior and exterior
oven surfaces.
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.

Questions and Answers
QUESTIONS
ANSWERS
Can I operate my microwave oven without the
turntable or turn the turntable over to hold a
large dish?
No. If you remove or turn over the turntable, you
will get poor cooking results. Dishes used in your
oven must fit on the turntable.
Can I use either metal or aluminum pans in
my microwave oven?
You can use aluminum foil for shielding (use
small, flat pieces), small skewers, and shallow
foil trays (if tray is no taller than 3/4 in. [1.9 cm]
deep and is filled with food to absorb microwave
energy). Never allow metal to touch walls
or door.
Is it normal for the turntable to turn in
either direction?
Yes. The turntable reverses rotation each time the
microwave oven door is opened and closed.
This helps cook food evenly.
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 may 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 the food becomes hot it will conduct the
heat to the dish. Be prepared to use hot pads to
remove food after cooking.
What does “standing time” mean?
“Standing time” means that after the timed
cooking period ends, food should be allowed
to stand either inside or outside of the oven to
completely finish cooking. Outside oven standing
time will allow the oven to be available for
other use. For inside oven standing time, you
can program a “0” power second stage of the
cooking cycle. See Two-Stage Cooking.
Why does steam come out of the air
exhaust vent?
Steam is normally produced during cooking. The
microwave oven has been designed to vent
this steam.
Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven?
How do I get the best results?
Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn while
following the manufacturer’s guidelines. Do not
use regular paper bags.
Do not re-pop unpopped kernels. Do not pop
popcorn in glass cookware.
