Introduction to microwaves
What are microwaves?
| Microwaves are electromagnetic waves in a specific frequency |
range, such as daylight or radio waves, though with the difference
that the wavelength is different. Radio waves are emitted into the
atmosphere and can cover large distances. As soon as they reach a
radio receiver, the energy received is converted into sounds. Micro-
waves are only emitted inside your appliance.
When they reach the food, the energy received is converted into
heat. The microwaves are alternately positive and negative and
affect the water molecules ofthe food like a magnet. The very rapidly
progressing polarity change of the microwave causes vibration of
the molecules and thereby friction which heats the food from inside.
This enables food to be cooked.
The golden rules for trouble-free and safe working with your
microwave cooker are:
1. Switch on the microwave only when food has been placed inthe
cooking space. | |
2. Always keep your cooker clean, especially in the vicinity of the
door seals and door seal surfaces.
3. Never damage:
Ш the door
. IM the door hinges
H the door seals and their surfaces
& the door frame .
(e.g. never jam anything between door and frame)
Clean the door seals and their surfaces (also tt the door frame) with
a mild detergent and hot water.
Note: |
Should the door seals and door seal surfaces be damaged, the
cooker should not be operated until it has been repaired by the
AEG Service Centre or by an AEG-trained electrician!
4. Only use suitable ovenware.
You will find instructions on page 81.
5. When heating liquids, please always additionally place a tea-
spoon in the container to avoid delayed boiling.
During delayed boiling, the boiling temperature is attained
~~ without typical steam bubbles rising.
Even when the container is only slightly shaken, the liquid
may then suddenly vigorously boil over or spurt.
Risk of scalding!
Si1 2/89 GB/EU - SIB3-3 7/89 GB/EU
SIB3-3 7/89 GB/EU
6. Food with a “skin” or “peel”, such as potatoes, tomatoes,
sausages, and the like should be pierced with a fork so that |
“any steam present can escape and the food will not burst.
7. Babyfood in jars or bottles should basically be heated
without a lid or top and well stirred or shaken after heating to
ensure uniform distribution of the heat. Before giving your
child the babyfood, please check the temperature.
8. Please note that, at high power and time settings, the oven-
ware heats up. Therefore use protective mittens suitable for
_ handling hot pans.
9. Never use your microwave cooker:
E to boil eggs in their shells, since they will otherwise burst!
№ to heat large quantities of cooking oil (fondue, deep-irying)
and drinks containing a high percentage of alcohol (dan-
ger of spontaneous combustion!)
Ш to heat unopened cans, bottles, etc.
El to dry animals, textiles, and paper
Ш if no food has been placed in the cooking space.
10.Use yourappliance only as instructed by the manufacturer and
as indicated inthe fables. Never overcook your food by excessive
times and excessive power settings (especially food with a high
sugar content). Specific areas of the food will otherwise dry out
and may ignite.
Important note:
When operating your microwave cooker, please always use the
combination grid and suitable ovenware, such as heat-resistant
glass containers or the ovenware from our range of accessories.
You will find instructions on page 581.
AEG electrical appliances comply with the valid safety require-
ments. Never use your microwave cooker if it no longer ope-
rates in a trouble-free manner. To ensure the safety of your
appliance, you should have repairs, especially on live parts, car-
ried out only by AEG trained electricians. In the event of a fault, -
you must therefore contact your retailer or our service centre
direct. Improper repairs may place the user at serious risk (an
exception is given on page 100 under Cooking space lighting).
For the
If you use my variable oven, my heated partition should only
be placed in my oven complete (lower part with heating ele-
ment and cover).
When you use me to prepare your food, my hobs and the oven
door become hot. Therefore keep small children well away from
me. |
This especially applies when you are grilling or pyrolytically
cleaning my oven (if available).
Overheated fats and oils rapidly ignite. When using me to pre-
pare food in fat or oil (e.g. chipped potatoes), please remain
nearby. |
Do not use me to heat your room.
Take care when connecting electrical appliances to plug sockets
‘in the cooker vicinity. Connection leads should not come within _
reach of hot hobs/cooking zones or get trapped under the hot
“oven door.
To avoid damage to my glass-ceramic surface, you should not
use my cooking area as a storage area.
My glass-ceramic cooking area (if available) is extremely resis-
_tant, though not unbreakable. It may be damaged by any sharp
or hard objects falling on to the cooking surface.
Should any fractures, cracks, or other defects appear, | must be
separated from the mains supply by the device required on the
fixed wiring side. Before doing so, please switch my 4 hob
switches to O.
Never line my oven floor with aluminium foil and never place any
pan, pot, etc. on my floor, since the oven enamel will otherwise be
damaged by the heat congestion caused.
Fruit juices dripping from the oven sheet leave stains that you will
find hard to remove.
| comply with radio interference suppression specifications

- Cookware
The better the pot, the better the cooking result.
№ You can tell good cookware by the pot bottom and not by the
material from which thé pot is made.
Bl The bottom should be as thick and flat as possible. lt should also -
not be rough (as e.g. on cast-iron pots), since scratches arise
when the pot is shifted.
B The pot bottom and hob must be of equal size. Please make sure
that your cookware stands in the centre of the hob.
~My hobs should always be clean, since soiled hobs and cook-
ware bottoms not only damage my glass-ceramic cooking area
(if available), but aiso increase power consumption.
Make good use of the aîterheat by switching off the hob just before
cooking ends.

Iniermediate settings, e. g. 3 (or * 2 only with electronic indicator),
are at all times possible.
When starting to boil within the 1-8 region (not on setting 9), my
automatic system relieves you of the needto switch-over to my sim-

1 This means that you can roast joints or poultry up to a size of around
2 kg and bake at max. 2 levels.
When you use me in this way, you make the following savings in
comparison with conventional ovens:
Energy, time, and my cleaning is also easier for you, since you
can detach the cover of my heated partition for cleaning.
While you are cooking in my upper oven, you can use the lower
“ part for warming of crockery.
My lower oven is also suitable for the storage of unused acces-
if you are roasting large joints or poultry — such as a goose or
turkey — or baking at 3 levels, detach my heated partition to
enlarge my oven.

If you remove my heated partition to enlarge my oven or for cleaning,
set my cooking function switch and oven temperature switch to
0 and the Off position respectively. To remove my sheli, slightly lift
this forward (front side of oven) and at the same time pull it for--
wards out of my oven! |
For your safety, my plug socket on the oven back panel is automati-
“cally closed when you take out the heated parition.

B Bakeware;
You can use me to bake cakes either in baking forms or on bak-
ing sheets. The material from which the vakeware is made is
extremely important.
The most important differences:
1. Black sheet baking forms, coated baking forms, or gold bak-
ing forms are the best, since they absorb heat and transfer itio
the dough most rapidly, implying foryou shorter baking times
and lower power consumption.
2. White sheet baking forms reflect the heat, i.e. they repel it.
Cakes which you bake in such forms have a longer baking
time, do not become so nicely brown, and require a longer
baking time. When baking with top/bottom heat, you should
therefore not use white sheet baking forms.
3. In the combination mode of top/bottom heat |= with micro-
wave Æ (where featured). This cooking function is suitable
for baking flans with a fruit topping and filling (cream or cot-
tage cheese) as well as. cakes with a low flour content
(sponge, nut cakes).

in this heating mode, | bake at several levels simultaneously —
quickly and economically —to save you time. l also bake different
cakes at the same time, e. g. fruit cakes and almond cakes or
large cakes and tartlets. You need only make sure that the pres-
cribed temperatures for the various items roughly coincide.
You should also take note that more steam arises when several
baking sheets are inserted at any one time. This especially
applies to fruit cakes. In the case of very moistíruit, e. g. damsons,
therefore bake on only two sheets at most at any one time.

For all 3 heating modes, the following applies:
Meat andfish should only be roasted inthe.oven from 1 kg weight.
When preparing roast pork and pork chops with crackling,
always place the scored roast in the upper part of the oven.
When using drip-pans with a grid, liquid should be added where
necessary (e.g. during prolonged roasting times) sothatdripping
fat and meat juices do not burn.

BBG1-2 10/89 GB/EU
EM The largerthe roast which you entrust to me, the longer must the
roasting or grilling time be set. The roasting/grilling times depend
“on the type, quantity, and quality of the meat. In practice, devia-
tions from the indications given in the tables and recipes may
therefore arise.
@ So that any evaporated liguid can be supplemented, | recom-
mend you during the roasting time to check your meat/fish from
time to time.
E After around half the cooking time. the meat/pouliry should be
turned so that it is uniformly browned right round.
Combination operation with microwave (if available)
E During operation in combination with microwave, the cooking
times are shortened by some 30-50%.
You will find more detailed information on roasting/grilling times
and temperatures in the attached cooking chart booklet.

The indicated grilling times may only be guidance values, since,
precisely during grilling, the times depend on the type and thickness
of the food to be grilled and the degree of cooking.

or bayonet catches or metal tins. And make sure you use fresh
The oven holds 6 bottling jars of 1-114 litres capacity.
Place 1 cup of hot water in the drip-pan so that the necessary
humidity is retained in the oven.
As the shelf height, use the 4th level from above. The jars should

Fume opening: closed
Keep an eye on the food being bottled.
As soon asthe liquid in the firstjars (when bottling fruit or pickled
cucumbers) begins to bubble (after around 45 minutes for 1-litre
jars) switch off the oven, but allow the jars to stand a further
30 minutes or so — around 15 minutes for tender fruit, e.g. straw-
berries — in the closed oven.
- When botiling vegetables or meat, set back my oven tempera-
ture switch to 100 °C as soon as the liquid in the first jars begins
to bubble and allow the contents to cook for a further
60-90 minutes. Then switch off the oven with both my switches
and allow the jarsto stand a further 30 minutes in the closed oven.

— Defrosting
Place the frozen, unpacked meat on an inverted plate in a glass or
porcelain container so that the meat juice can freely drip.
Turn during the defrosting time. Cover already defrosted areas
‘with small pieces of aluminium foil.
Important: During microwave operation, aluminium foil must have a
distance of at least 2 cm to the cooking space/door. |
Keep foil pieces at least 2 cm away from the cooking space walls
and door. When the defrosting time has elapsed, the pieces of meat,
| depending on quality, need a differently long standing time.
| Butter, pieces of layer cake, cottage cheese:
Remove aluminium packing foil beforehand.
Do not fully defrost in the appliance. Allow the food to attemperate
outside (e.g. for pieces of layer cake and cottage cheese, for
30 minutes to 1 hour depending on quantity).
Carefully turn or stir during the defrosting time.
Ready-cooked dishes:
Never place any aluminium bowls on the grid.
Defrost ready-cooked dishes on porcelain or glass plate. Cover
when defrosting and heat.

1. Never use aggressive cleaners, such as e.g. coarse scouring
agents or abrasive pan cleaners.
2. Always clean the cooking areawhen iti IS ightly soiled ~ prefera-
bly after each use.
For this purpose, use a damp cloth and a little washing- -up liquid.
Then wipe the cooking area dry with a clean cloth. No cleaner
residues should remain on the surface.
3. Thoroughly clean the whole cooking area once a week. For this
purpose, use “Sidol Stainless Steel Gloss”, “Steel-Fix”, or “WK-
Then thoroughly clean the whole cooking area with clean water
and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Please make sure that no cleaner
residues remain onthe surface! The cooking areamay otherwise |
be damaged!
Boiled-over food
First soften with a wet cloth and then remove the food residues with a
glass or razor-blade scraper.
- Then clean the cooking area as described under 3.
Burned-on sugar,
melted plastic
Remove this at once — when still not — with a glass scraper. Then
clean the cooking area as described unter 3. |
You can prevent damage due to sugar or sugar-containing foods by
caring for your glass-ceramic cooking area with Collo-Profi or Cera-
fix. |
(Scale stains or mother-of-pearl-like glossy stains formed during |
cooking) are best removed when the hobs are still warm (not hot).
For this purpose, also use “Sido! Stainless Steel Gloss”, “Steel-Fix”,
or “WK-Top”. Proceed exactly as described under 3.
— Grains of sand or grit
which fall on to the cooking area may cause scratches when pots
are moved about. Please make sure therefore that no grains or sand
or grit remain on the cooking area.
You can obtain suitable cleaners, cleansing agents, and a glass
scraper from the AEG Service Centre.

my heated
Please clean heavy soiling of the hobs with a fine scouring agent or
sponge. Then lightly heat and allow to dry. | |
Please note that cleaners are unsuitable for the stainless steel edge
- of the cast iron hob and stainless steel tray, since they cause
scratches. |
Thermal loading during cooking may cause slight yellowing of the
stainless steel edge and stainless steel tray. This depends on the
physical nature of the material (its tendency to tarnish).
These discolorations can be easily removed with “Wk-Top” or
— “Steelfix”.
‘To care for your hobs, you can occasionally use a little sewing-
machine oil (finally polish with paper) or other cleaners and cleans-
ing agents, such as Collo-Elektrol, which you can obtain from the
AEG Service Centre.
Never use butter, bacon, or the like!
E Normal cleaning
Clean my oven after each | use. This makes fat splashes easiestto
remove. For stubborn soiling, use K2r Oven Cleaner, Huy, Collo
Grille Cleaner, or Express Oven Cleaner.
To clean my glass-ceramic ceiling (if available), you can
safely use oven spray or, for heavy soiling, a glass scraper.
Then wipe with clean water to remove all cleaner residues.
Never use aggressive cleaners, such as e.g. coarse scouring
‘agents or abrasive pan cleaners. You can obtain suitable
cleaners and cleansing agents from the AEG Service Centre.
My heated partition should be removed for cleaning. The upper cov-
er.can be pulled out forwards and cleaned in the sink.
