Practical Hints:
INSPECTION FOR DAMAGE. A microwave oven
should only be used if an inspection con¿rms all of
the following conditions:
1. The grille is not damaged or broken.
2. The door ¿ts squarely and securely and opens
and closes smoothly.
3. The door hinges are in good condition.
4. The metal plates of a metal seal on the door are
neither buckled nor deformed.
5. The door seals are neither covered with food nor
have large burn marks.
PRECAUTIONS. Microwave radiation from
microwave ovens can cause harmful effects if the
following precautions are not taken:
1. Never tamper with or deactivate the interlocking
devices on the door.
2. Never poke an object, particularly a metal object,
through a grille or between the door and the oven
while the oven is operating.
3. Never place saucepans, unopened cans or other
heavy metal objects in the oven.
4. Do not let other metallic articles, e.g., fast food
foil containers, touch the side of the oven.
5. Clean the oven cavity, the door and the seals with
water and a mild detergent at regular intervals.
Never use any form of abrasive cleaner that may
scratch or scour surfaces around the door.
6. Always use the oven with trays or cookware
recommended by the manufacturer.
7. Never operate the oven without a load (i.e., an
absorbing material such as food or water) in the
oven cavity unless speci¿cally allowed in the
manufacturer’s literature.
8. For horizontally hinged doors, never rest heavy
objects such as food containers on the door while
it is open.
9. Do not place sealed containers in microwave
ovens. Baby bottles ¿tted with a screw cap or a
teat are considered to be sealed containers.
10. This appliance is not intended for use by
persons (including children) with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack
of experience and knowledge, unless they have
been given supervision or instruction concerning
use of the appliance by a person responsible for

Installation and General Instructions
General Use
1. In order to maintain high quality, do not operate
the oven when empty. The microwave energy
will reÀect continuously throughout the oven if
no food or water is present to absorb energy.
This can lead to damage to the microwave oven
including arcing within the oven cavity.
2. If smoke is observed, touch the STOP/RESET
key and leave door closed in order to stiÀe any
Àames. Disconnect the power cord, and/or shut
off power at the fuse or circuit breaker panel.
3. The microwave oven is intended for heating food
and beverages. Drying of food or clothing and
heating of warming pads, slippers, sponges,
damp cloth and similar may lead to risk of injury,
ignition or ¿re.
4. Do not use recycled paper products, unless the
paper product is labeled as safe for microwave
oven use. Recycled paper products may contain
impurities which may cause sparks and/or ¿res
when used.
5. Do not use newspapers or paper bags for
cooking.
6. Do not hit or strike the Control Panel. Damage to
controls may occur.
7. POT HOLDERS may be needed as heat from
food is transferred to the cooking container and
from the container to the oven. The oven can be
very hot after removing the cooking container.
8. Do not store Àammable materials next to, on top
of, or in the oven. It could be a ¿re hazard.
9. Do not cook food directly on ceramic plate unless
indicated in recipes. (Food should be placed in a
suitable cooking utensil.)

Microwaves and How They Work
Microwaves are a form of high frequency radio
waves similar to those used by a radio, including
AM, FM and CB. They are similar to a television
where the radio waves are converted to a picture on
the screen. However, microwaves are much shorter
than radio waves; approximately twelve centimetres
wave length. Electricity is converted into microwave
energy by the magnetron tube (which is the heart of
the microwave oven).
From the magnetron tube, microwave energy is
transmitted to the oven cavity. The microwaves are
converted to heat in the food. The microwaves enter
from the outside of the food and travel through the
food losing half of their power every two to three
centimetres. Continued cooking to the centre occurs
by conduction.
Although pacemakers used to be affected by
microwaves (as well as by other radio waves), they
are now shielded and are not bothered by these
interferences. This allows people with pacemakers
to sit calmly by their radio or television and cook with
microwave ovens.
When microwaves come in contact with a substance,
any one or CRISPY GRILL of three things may occur.
They can be:
1. REFLECTED
2. TRANSMITTED
3. ABSORBED
ReÀection:
Metal substances REFLECT microwave energy and
because there is no absorption, there is no heating.
This is why the oven interior is either stainless
steel or epoxy-coated steel. This ensures that the
microwaves are kept inside the cavity and evenly
distributed throughout the food with the help of the
turntable.
Transmission:
Such substances as paper, glass and plastic
TRANSMIT microwave energy and do not become
hot except from food. Because these substances
do not reÀect or absorb microwave energy, they are
ideal materials for microwave cooking containers.
Absorption:
Food contains moisture and will ABSORB microwave
energy, which causes the moisture molecules
within the food to vibrate at an incredible rate
(2,450,000,000 times per second). Friction, created
by the vibration, produces heat energy which is
conducted throughout the food.
Cookware and Utensils Guide
It is important to use the correct container when
cooking in a microwave oven. The following will help
you make the right selection.
How to Test a Container for Safe
Microwave Oven Use
TO TEST A CONTAINER FOR SAFE MICROWAVE
OVEN USE: Fill a 1-cup glass measure with cool
water and place it in the microwave oven alongside
the empty container to be tested; heat one (1)
minute at High. If the container is microwave
ovensafe (transparent to microwave energy), the
container should remain comfortably cool, the water
in glass measure should be hot. If the container is
hot, it has absorbed some microwave energy and
should NOT be used. This test cannot be used for
plastic containers.
Glass, Ceramic and China
Heat-Resistant glass cookware is invaluable in
microwave cooking. Many of these items are readily
available in most homes: glass jugs, mixing bowls,
loaf dishes, covered casseroles, oblong baking
dishes, pie plates and round or square cake dishes.
Examples of this type of cookware are Pyrex® and
Corningware®.
Dinnerware can be used for microwave heating.
Many brands of dinnerware are microwave safe.
Check the care information for reference to
microwave use for dinnerware and serving pieces. If
dinnerware is marked ovenproof, it frequently is safe
to use in the microwave oven. However, to be sure,
check by conducting microwave dish test previously
mentioned.
Several types of glassware and dinnerware are
not recommended for use in the microwave oven.
Do not use dishes with metallic trim or containers

Cookware and Utensils Guide
Plastic
Metal
Plastic dishes, cups and some freezer containers
should be used with care in a microwave oven.
Choose plastic containers carefully, as some plastic
containers may become soft, melt and may scorch.
The majority of plastic dishes, even those designed
for use in the microwave oven, are not suitable for
cooking foods with high fat or sugar content, or for
lengthy cooking times. Most microwave plastic dishes
should not be used for longer than 3 to 5 minutes
on High power. These dishes, although not suitable
for extended cooking, may be used successfully for
defrosting or for use on lower power levels.
Cooking Bags designed to withstand boiling,
freezing, or conventional heating are microwave
safe. Prepare bags according to manufacturer’s
directions. When cooking by microwave, DO NOT
use wire twist-ties to close bag. They can act as an
antenna and cause arcing (sparks).
DO NOT COOK IN PLASTIC FOOD STORAGE
BAGS.
Plastic Wrap such as GLAD WRAP® can be used
to cover dishes in most recipes. Over an extended
heating time, some dis¿guration of the wrap may
occur. When removing plastic wrap “covers”, as well
as any glass lid, be careful to remove it away from
you to avoid steam burns.
Loosen plastic but let dish stand, covered.
Metal cookware or utensils, or those with metallic
trim, should NOT be used in the microwave. Since
microwave energy is reÀected by metal, foods in
metal containers will not cook evenly. There is also a
possibility of “arcing”.
Although metal utensils should be avoided in
microwave cooking, some metal can be helpful when
used correctly.
Aluminum foil can be used safely, if certain guidelines
are followed, to prevent overcooking. Small pieces of
foil are used to shield areas such as chicken wings,
tips of roasts, or other thin parts that cook before
the rest of the recipe is ¿nished. Make sure foil is
attached securely and doesn’t touch sides of oven,
otherwise arcing may occur. Foil lined containers,
either cardboard or plastic, should NOT be used in
the microwave oven as arcing could occur.
Metal twist-ties, either paper or plastic coated, should
NOT be used in the microwave oven. Frozen dinner
trays can be used in the microwave, if the container
is no deeper than 2 cm and is ¿lled with food. Metal
skewers can not be used in microwave ovens as
arcing may occur. Wooden skewers are readily
available and give the same result.
Shells: Scalloped baking shells are best used during
reheating and for short periods of cooking time only.
Jars and Bottles
Thermometers are available for use in microwave

breaking.
Straw and wicker baskets may be used in the
microwave oven for short periods of time to warm
rolls or bread. Large wooden utensils, such as bowls
or cutting boards should NOT be used for prolonged
heating as the microwave energy may cause the
wood to become dry and brittle.

Before Requesting Service (continued)
THESE THINGS ARE NORMAL
The oven causes
interference with my TV.
Some radio and TV interference might occur when you cook with the
microwave oven. This interference is similar to the interference caused
by small appliances such as mixers, vacuums, hair dryers, etc. It does
not indicate a problem with your oven.
Steam accumulates
on the oven door and warm
air comes from the oven
vents.
During cooking, steam and warm air are given off from the food. Most
of the steam and warm air are removed from the oven by the air which
circulates in the oven cavity. However, some steam will condense on
cooler surfaces such as the oven door. This is normal.
I accidentally ran my
microwave oven without
any food in it.
Running the oven empty for a short time will not damage the oven.
However, we do not recommend this.
The oven has an odour and It is essential that your oven is wiped out regularly particularly after
generates smoke when
cooking by Crispy grill or Grill. Any fat and grease that builds up on the

fast and even cooking. Some of these techniques
are similar to those used in conventional cooking, but
because microwaves produce heat very quickly these
following techniques are extremely important. It’s a
must for you to be familiar with the following tips.
Food Characteristics
Techniques for Preparation
Size and Quantity
Timing
Small portions cook faster than large portions. As
you increase the quantity of food you put into the
microwave oven, you must also increase your cooking
time. The microwave oven has the same power
regardless of quantity; thus the power is divided
between more items and so it takes longer to cook.
As a general guide, if you double the quantity of food
suggested in the recipe, add half the time suggested
again.
A range of cooking times is given in each recipe for
two reasons. First, to allow for the uncontrollable
differences in food shapes, starting temperatures and
personal preferences. Secondly, these allow for the
differences in electrical voltage input which changes
during peak load periods. Always remember that it
is easier to add time to undercooked food. Once the
food is overcooked, nothing can be done. For each
recipe, an approximate cooking time is given.
Stirring
Liquid Content
Low moisture foods take a shorter time to cook than
foods with a lot of moisture.
Stirring is often necessary during microwave cooking.
We have noted when stirring is helpful in the recipes.
Always bring the outside edges towards the centre
and the centre portions to the outside.
Shape
Rearranging or Turning
Uniform sizes cook more evenly. To compensate
for irregular shapes, place thin pieces towards the
centre of the dish and thicker pieces towards the
outer edge of the dish.
Some foods should be turned in the container during
cooking. For example, because of the different
thicknesses in the breast and back sections of
poultry, it is a good idea to turn poultry over once to
ensure more even cooking.
Rearranging or turning over uneven shaped food in
the dish should be done as suggested to ensure a
satisfactory result. Rearrange small items such as
chicken pieces, prawns, hamburger patties, steak or
chops. Rearrange pieces from the centre to the edge
of the dish.
Bone and Fat
Bones conduct heat and cause the meat next to
them to be heated more quickly. Large amounts of
fat absorb microwave energy and the meat next to
these areas may overcook.
Cooking in Layers
Starting Temperature
Food which has been sitting at room temperature
takes less time to cook than refrigerated or frozen
food.
Density and Composition
Porous, airy foods (cakes and breads) take less
time to cook than heavy compacted foods (meat and
vegetables). Recipes high in fat and sugar content
cook more quickly.

This microwave oven is not designed to cook more
than 1 layer of food. Cooking in 2 layers may not
always be successful, it takes longer and may be
uneven. You can successfully reheat two dinner
plates of food at one time but remember to increase
the reheating time and use a microwave warming
rack.
Piercing of Foods
Microwave Recipe Techniques
Microwaves penetrate the surface of the food to a
depth of about two to three centimetres and then
the heat is gradually conducted in a random pattern.
Some parts of food matter cook faster than others.
Special microwave techniques are used to promote
Pierce the skin or membrane of foods such as whole
potatoes when cooked whole in the microwave oven.
This allows steam to escape. If the skin has not been
pierced, food may burst.
Cured Meats
Cured meats may overcook in some areas due to
the high concentration of salts used in the curing
process. So take care when cooking different brands
of bacon as cooking times may vary slightly.
Soups
Use a bowl and stir before heating and at least
once through reheat time and again at the end.

Techniques for Preparation
Converting Your Favourite Conventional
Recipes for Microwave Cooking
Microwave Recipe Techniques
Covering
Covering food minimizes the microwave cooking
time.
Because microwave cooking is done with time and
not direct heat, the rate of evaporation cannot be
easily controlled. However, this can be corrected by
using different materials to cover dishes. Plastic wrap
is the best substitute for a lid as it creates a tighter
seal and so it retains more heat and steam. Wax
paper and paper towels hold the heat in but not the
steam. These materials also prevent splattering. Use
a paper towel, wax paper or no cover when steam is
not needed for tenderising.
When adapting conventional recipes for microwave
cooking, time are reduced considerably.
For example, a chicken which takes 1 hour to cook
in a moderate oven will take 15 to 20 minutes on 800
W in your microwave oven.
Use similar microwave recipes to help you adapt
conventional recipes. Remember, it is always best to
undercook a recipe and then add an extra minute or
two to ¿nish it off.
Here are some other tips that may help:

Handy Hints and Tips
How to Keep Everything Hot at The Same Time
Plan your meals so that the food will not all need
last minute cooking or attention at the same time.
The special features of microwave cookery make
it easy to serve meals with everything piping hot.
Cooking of some foods may be interrupted while you
start others, without harming the nutritional value or
Àavour of either.
A recipe which requires standing time can be
microwaved ¿rst and another food cooked while it
stands. Dishes prepared in advance can be reheated
brieÀy before serving.
It does take some experience and time to cook with
con¿dence. Microwaves are fast so you will have to
do some experimenting. You might ¿nd you will use
your conventional range in conjunction with your
microwave oven. For example, while cooking the
roast in the microwave oven, you can be cooking the
vegetables and gravy on the range top. This can also
be done the other way around. Prepare your meals
as follows.
1. Firstly, cook the most dense item (roast or
casserole). Drain and retain meat juice from joints
then cover with foil.
2. Cook the potatoes, rice or pasta.
3. Cover with foil for standing.
4. Cook greens and other vegetables.
5. Cover with foil for standing.
6. Cook the gravy with the retained meat juices,
stock and thickening.
7. Carve the roast and serve the vegetables and
gravy.
While you are learning to plan meals, you may get a
bit behind time. Don’t worry. Dinner servings may be
suitably reheated on 800 W, for 1 to 2 minutes per
serving.
If you prefer not to use foil, cover food with saucepan
lids. A metal lid will retain the heat for at least 15
minutes.
Meanwhile, how can you cook all the vegetables
at the same time? Simply place potatoes and
pumpkin in one dish and less dense vegetables
such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliÀower, beans and
peas in another. Sprinkle greens with water. Cover
with a lid or plastic wrap. Cook on 1000 W for
approximately 10 to 15 minutes for a serving for four
people. Remember, if you increase the quantity of
vegetables, increase the cooking time. Fresh and
frozen vegetables can be mixed on a vegetable
platter, but remember the latter are not as dense as
fresh vegetables, as they have been blanched before
freezing.
If vegetables are cut to a similar size, they can be
cooked in separate ramekins or small dishes at the
same time.
• To blanch (1 cup) nuts, place in a pie plate. Cover
with hot tap water and heat on 1000 W for 2 to
3 minutes. Rinse in cold water and rub between
sheets of paper towel to remove skins.
• To toast coconut, place half a cup on a paper towel,
and cook on 1000 W for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring
occasionally.
• To make buttered breadcrumbs, combine 1 cup
breadcrumbs and 2 tablespoon butter and heat on
1000 W for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
• When heating 100 g baby food, select 1000 W for
15 to 30 seconds, depending on the amount of
food or liquid and the starting temperature of it. Test
temperature before serving or further heating.
• For an added touch at dinner parties, steam your
own hand towels. Saturate in cold water, wring
and place on a plate. Heat on 1000 W for 1 to 2
minutes.
• To soften cream cheese or butter, place in oven on
270 W for ½ to 1 minutes per ½ cup.
• Refrigerated cheese (250 g) can be heated to room
temperature on 600 W for ½ to 1 minute, depending
on size.
• When having a barbecue, partially cook food in
the microwave, season and ¿nish cooking on the
barbecue.
• To melt chocolate, place 100 g broken chocolate
in a 4 cup glass jug and heat on 600 W for 2 to 3
minutes. As chocolate holds its shape after heating,
stir and stand before adding extra time to cooking.
• To remove oven odours, combine ½ teaspoon
vanilla essence with 1 cup water in a small bowl
and heat on 1000 W 4 to 5 minutes. Wipe oven
interior with a damp cloth.
• To toast 1 cup almonds place onto a plate and heat
on 1000 W for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every minute.
• To dry herbs, arrange ½ cup of leaves evenly on
paper towel. Place a mug of water into the oven
next to the herbs and cook on 1000 W for 1 to 3
minutes, or until dry and crumbly. Check herbs
frequently as timing may vary with different herbs.
Please note that herbs dry and crumble on standing
outside the microwave oven.
• To soften dried fruit, place 1 cup of dried fruit into
a small bowl. Add 2 tablespoon of water, cover
with plastic wrap and cook on 1000 W for 2 to 3
minutes.
• To skin tomatoes, place 1 cup of hot tap water in
a 2 to 3 cup jug or bowl and heat on 1000 W for
1½ minutes or until boiling. Add 1 tomato and heat
for a further 20 to 30 seconds, remove and repeat
procedure with remaining tomatoes. The skin will
be loosened and easily removed.
• To dry fresh breadcrumbs (1 cup), spread on the
base of a plate and heat on 1000 W for 2 to 3
minutes, stirring twice during heating.

If the poultry is not cooked enough return it to
the oven and cook a few more minutes at the
recommended power level.
DO NOT USE A CONVENTIONAL MEAT
THERMOMETER IN THE MICROWAVE OVEN.
Let stand, covered with foil, 10 to 15 minutes after
cooking. Standing time allows the temperature
to equalise throughout the food and ¿nishes the
cooking process.
If a large amount of juice accumulates in the bottom
of the baking dish occasionally drain it. If desired,
reserve for making gravy.
Less-tender birds should be cooked in liquid such as
soup or broth. Use ¼ cup per 500 g of poultry. Use
an oven cooking bag or covered casserole. Select
a covered casserole dish deep enough so that bird
does not touch the lid.
During cooking it may be necessary to shield legs,
wings and the breast bone to prevent overcooking.
Wooden toothpicks can be used to hold foil in place.
If an oven cooking bag is used, prepare according
to package directions. Do not use wire twist-ties
to close bag. Use only nylon tie, a piece of cotton

Directions for Cooking Tender Cuts of Meat by Microwave
For best results, select roasts that are uniform in
shape.
Place meat on a microwave suitable rack in a
rectangular dish. Beef rib roast should be placed cutside down. Other bone-in roasts should be placed
fat-side down. Boneless roasts should be placed fatside up. Halfway through cooking turn roasts.
Loosely cover baking dish with wax paper or paper
towel to prevent splatter. If a large amount of
juice accumulates in the bottom of the dish, drain
occasionally. If desired, reserve for making gravy.
Multiply the weight of the roast by the minimum
recommended times per 500 g. Programme Power
and Time.
Half hams should be shielded by wrapping an 8
cm wide strip of foil around the large end of the
ham. Secure to the body of the ham with wooden
toothpicks. Fold 3 cm over cut surface. For shank
ham halves, shield shank bone by cupping it with foil.
One third of the way through cooking, remove ham
from oven and cut off skin. Turn fat-side up and re
shield edges. If desired, glaze last 10 to 20 minutes
of cooking.
Main Fare Meats
Meats can be shielded at the beginning of cooking or
halfway through cooking. If you wish to shield at the
beginning of cooking, remove foil halfway through
the cooking time. Beef and pork rib roasts should be
shielded by the bones. Foil should extend about 5
cm down from bones.
The shank, thin ends of boneless roasts should also
be shielded.
After heating, check temperature using a meat
thermometer. The thermometer should not touch
bone or fat. If it does, the reading could be
inaccurate. Lower temperatures are found in the
centre of the roast and in the muscle close to a large
bone, such as a pork loin centre rib roast. If the
temperatures are low, return meat to the oven and
cook a few more minutes at the recommended power
level. DO NOT USE A CONVENTIONAL MEAT
THERMOMETER IN THE MICROWAVE OVEN. Let
stand, covered with foil, 10 to 15 minutes. During
standing time the internal temperature equalises and
the temperature rises 5 °C to 10 °C
Canned hams should be shielded on the top
cut-edge with a 3 cm strip of foil. Wrap strip of foil
around ham and secure to body of ham with wooden
toothpicks. Fold 2 cm over cut surface. If desired,
glaze last 10 to 20 minutes of cooking.

Directions for Cooking Less-Tender Cuts of Meat by Microwave
Main Fare Meats
Less-tender cuts of meat such as pot roasts should
be cooked in liquid. Use ½ to 1 cup of soup, broth,
etc per 500 g of meat. Use an oven cooking bag or
covered casserole when cooking less-tender cuts of
meat. Select a covered casserole deep enough so
that the meat does not touch the lid.
If an oven cooking bag is used, prepare the bag
according to package directions. Do not use wire
or metal twist-ties. Use the nylon tie provided,
otherwise, use a piece of cotton string or a strip cut
from the open end of the bag. Make six 2 cm slits in
top of bag to allow steam to escape.
Multiply the weight of the roast by the minimum
recommended minutes per 500 g. Programme Power
and Time. Turn meat over halfway through cooking.
