IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
ABOUT YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
ABOUT MICROWAVE COOKING
This Use and Care Manual is valuable: read it carefully and
always save it for reference.
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas towards outside of dish.
A good microwave cookbook is a valuable asset. Check it for
microwave cooking principles, techniques, hints and recipes.
• Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount of
time indicated and add more as needed. Food severely
overcooked can smoke or ignite.
NEVER use the microwave oven without the turntable and
support nor turn the turntable over so that a large dish could
be placed in the microwave oven.
• Cover foods while cooking. Check recipe or cookbook for
suggestions: paper towels, wax paper, microwave plastic wrap or
a lid. Covers prevent spattering and help foods to cook evenly.
ALWAYS have food in the microwave oven when it is on to
absorb the microwave energy.
• Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum foil any thin areas
of meat or poultry to prevent overcooking before dense, thick
areas are cooked thoroughly.
When using the microwave oven at power levels below 100%,
you may hear the magnetron cycling on and off. It is normal
for the exterior of the microwave oven to be warm to the touch
when cooking or reheating.
Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking. Room
humidity and the moisture in food will influence the amount
of moisture that condenses in the microwave oven. Generally,
covered foods will not cause as much condensation as
uncovered ones. Ventilation openings must not be blocked.
The microwave oven is for food preparation only. It should not
be used to dry clothes or newspapers.
Your microwave oven is rated 1000 watts by using the IEC
Test Procedure. In using recipes or package directions, check
food a minute or two before the minimum time and add time
accordingly.
• Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or twice during
cooking, if possible.
• Turn foods over once during microwaving to speed cooking
of such foods as chicken and hamburgers. Large items like
roasts must be turned over at least once.
• Rearrange foods such as meatballs halfway through cooking
both from top to bottom and from the center of the dish to
the outside.
• Add standing time. Remove food from microwave oven and
stir, if possible. Cover for standing time which allows the food
to finish cooking without overcooking.
• Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating that cooking
temperatures have been reached.
Doneness signs include:
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
- Center bottom of dish is very hot to the touch.
- Poultry thigh joints move easily.
- Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
- Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
ABOUT FOOD
FOOD
DO
DON’T
Eggs,
sausages,
nuts, seeds,
fruits &
vegetables
• Puncture egg yolks before cooking to prevent
“explosion”.
• Pierce skins of potatoes, apples, squash, hot dogs
and sausages so that steam escapes.
• Cook eggs in shells.
• Reheat whole eggs.
• Dry nuts or seeds in shells.
Popcorn
• Use specially bagged popcorn for microwave cooking.
• Listen while popping corn for the popping to slow
to 1 or 2 seconds or use special popcorn pad.
• Pop popcorn in regular brown bags or glass bowls.
• Exceed maximum time on popcorn package.
Baby food
• Transfer baby food to small dish and heat carefully,
stirring often. Check temperature before serving.
• Put nipples on bottles after heating and shake
thoroughly. “Wrist” test before feeding.
• Heat disposable bottles.
• Heat bottles with nipples on.
• Heat baby food in original jars.
General
• Cut baked goods with filling after heating to release
steam and avoid burns.
• Stir liquids briskly before and after heating to avoid
“eruption”.
• Use deep bowl, when cooking liquids or cereals, to
prevent boilovers.
• Heat or cook in closed glass jars or air tight
containers.
• Can in the microwave as harmful bacteria may not
be destroyed.
• Deep fat fry.
• Dry wood, gourds, herbs or wet papers.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
ABOUT UTENSILS AND COVERINGS
ABOUT CHILDREN AND THE MICROWAVE
It is not necessary to buy all new cookware. Many pieces already in your
kitchen can be used successfully in your new microwave oven. Make
sure the utensil does not touch the interior walls during cooking.
Children below the age of 7 should use the microwave oven with
a supervising person very near to them. Between the ages of 7
and 12, the supervising person should be in the same room.
As with any appliance, close supervision by an adult is
necessary when used by children.
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing on the
microwave oven door.
Children should be taught all safety precautions: use
potholders, remove coverings carefully, pay special attention to
packages that crisp food because they may be extra hot.
Don’t assume that because a child has mastered one cooking
skill he/she can cook everything.
Children need to learn that the microwave oven is not a toy. See
page 20 for Child Lock feature.
Use these utensils for safe microwave
cooking and reheating:
•
•
•
•
•
•
glass ceramic (Pyroceram®), such as Corningware®.
heat-resistant glass (Pyrex®)
microwave-safe plastics
paper plates
microwave-safe pottery, stoneware and porcelain
browning dish (Do not exceed recommended preheating time.
Follow manufacturer’s directions.)
These items can be used for short time reheating
of foods that have little fat or sugar in them:
• wood, straw, wicker
DO NOT USE
• metal pans and bakeware
• dishes with metallic trim
• non-heat-resistant glass
• non-microwave-safe plastics (margarine tubs)
• recycled paper products
• brown paper bags
• food storage bags
• metal twist-ties
Should you wish to check if a dish is safe for microwaving, place
the empty dish in the microwave oven and microwave on HIGH for
30 seconds. A dish which becomes very hot should not be used.
The following coverings are ideal:
• Paper towels are good for covering foods for reheating and
absorbing fat while cooking bacon.
• Wax paper can be used for cooking and reheating.
• Plastic wrap that is specially marked for microwave use can
be used for cooking and reheating. DO NOT allow plastic
wrap to touch food. Vent so steam can escape.
• Lids that are microwave-safe are a good choice because heat
is kept near the food to hasten cooking.
• Microwave oven cooking bags are good for large meats or
foods that need tenderizing. DO NOT use metal twist ties.
Remember to slit bag so steam can escape.
How to use aluminum foil in your
microwave oven:
• Small flat pieces of aluminum foil placed smoothly on the food can be
used to shield areas that are either defrosting or cooking too quickly.
• Foil should not come closer than one inch to any surface of
the microwave oven.
Should you have questions about utensils or coverings, check a
good microwave cookbook or follow recipe suggestions.
ACCESSORIES There are many microwave accessories available
for purchase. Evaluate carefully before you purchase so that they
meet your needs. A microwave-safe thermometer will assist you
in determining correct doneness and assure you that foods have
been cooked to safe temperatures. Electrolux is not responsible
for any damage to the microwave oven when accessories are used.
ABOUT SAFETY
• Check foods to see that they are cooked to the United States
Department of Agriculture’s recommended temperatures.
TEMP
FOOD
145°F - For beef, lamb or veal cut into steaks, chops or
(63°C) roasts, fish
160°F - For fresh pork, ground meat, seafood, egg dishes,
(71°C) frozen prepared food and beef, lamb or veal cut into
steaks, chops or roasts
165°F - For leftover, ready-to-reheat refrigerated, deli and
(74°C) carry out “fresh” food, whole chicken or turkey,
chicken or turkey breasts and ground poultry used
in chicken or turkey burgers
NOTE
Do not cook whole, stuffed poultry. Cook stuffing
separately to 165°F.
To test for doneness, insert a meat thermometer in a thick
or dense area away from fat or bone. NEVER leave the
thermometer in the food during cooking, unless it is approved
for microwave oven use.
• ALWAYS use potholders to prevent burns when handling
utensils that are in contact with hot food. Enough heat from
the food can transfer through utensils to cause skin burns.
• Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from the face and
hands. Slowly lift the farthest edge of a dish’s covering and carefully
open popcorn and oven cooking bags away from the face.
• Stay near the microwave oven while it’s in use and check
cooking progress frequently so that there is no chance of
overcooking food.
• NEVER use the cavity for storing cookbooks or other items.
• Select, store and handle food carefully to preserve its high
quality and minimize the spread of foodborne bacteria.
• Keep waveguide cover clean. Food residue can cause arcing
and/or fires.
• Use care when removing items from the microwave oven so
that the utensil, your clothes or accessories do not touch the
safety door latches.
• Keep aluminum foil used for shielding at least 1 inch away
from walls, ceiling and door.

Using the Rack
The rack allows several foods to be cooked or reheated at
one time. However, for the best cooking and reheating, use
Turntable ON function and cook with SENSOR COOKING or
AUTO COOKING without the rack. When the rack is used, set
time and power level manually. Allow plenty of space around
and between the dishes. Pay close attention to the cooking
and reheating progress. Reposition the foods and reverse
them from the rack to turntable and/or stir them at least
once during any cooking or reheating time. After cooking
or reheating, stir if possible. Using a lower power level will
assist in better cooking and reheating uniformity.
Avoid:
• Storing the rack in the microwave oven when not in
use.
• Popping popcorn with the rack in the microwave oven.
• Using any browning dish on the rack.
• Using SENSOR COOKING and AUTO COOKING with the
rack.
• Cooking directly on the rack—use microwave-safe
cookware.
NOTE
Turntable on/off function can be used in Manual Operation.
See page 28.
Manual Defrost
If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on the
Defrost chart or is above or below the limits in the Amount
column on the Defrost chart (see page 22-23), you need
to defrost manually.
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously
cooked, by using power level for 30%.
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food the rule of
thumb is approximately 4 minutes per pound. For example,
defrost 4 minutes for 1 pound of frozen spaghetti sauce.
Always stop the oven periodically to remove or separate
the portions that are defrosted. If food is not defrosted at
the end of the estimated defrosting time, program the oven
in 1 minute increments on power level 30% until totally
defrosted.
When using plastic containers from the freezer, defrost only
long enough to remove from the plastic in order to place in
a microwave-safe dish.

SENSOR COOKING
Sensor cooking has an electronic controlled sensor that
detects the vapor (moisture and humidity) emitted from the
food as it heats. The sensor adjusts the cooking times and
power level for various foods and quantities automatically.
Using Sensor Settings:
1. Be sure the exterior of the cooking container and the
interior of the oven are dry. Wipe off any moisture with
a dry cloth or paper towel.
2. The oven works with foods at normal storage temperature. For example, popcorn would be at room
temperature.
3. More or less food than the quantity listed in the chart
should be cooked following the guidelines in any microwave cookbook.
4. During the first part of SENSOR COOKING, food name will
appear in the display. Do not open the oven door or press
the STOP clear pad during this part of the cycle. The
measurement of vapor will be interrupted.
When the sensor detects the vapor emitted from the
food, remainder of cooking time will appear. Door may
be opened when remaining cooking time appears in the
display. At this time, you may stir or season food, as
desired.
5. If the sensor does not detect vapor properly when popping popcorn, the oven will turn off, and the correct time
of day will be displayed. If the sensor does not detect
vapor properly when cooking other foods, AN ERROR
CODE will be displayed, and the oven will turn off.
6. Check food for temperature after cooking. If additional
time is needed, continue to cook manually.
Covering Foods:
Some foods cook better when covered.
NOTES for SENSOR COOKING
1. The final cooking result will vary according to the
food condition (e.g. initial temperature, shape,
quality). Check food for temperature after cooking. If
additional time is needed, continue to cook manually.
2. Stay near the oven while it’s in use and check
cooking progress frequently so that there is no
chance of overcooking food.
3. When SENSOR COOKING are selected Turntable
On is automatically set for optimum cooking.
Sensor Cook
You can cook foods by pressing the sensor cook pad
multiple times. You don’t need to calculate cooking
time or power level.

Operating Tips
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. Three different defrosting
levels are provided:
1. MEAT
2. POULTRY

Weight conversion table
You are probably used to measuring food in pounds
and ounces that are fractions of a pound (for
example, 4 ounces equals 1/4 pound). However,
in order to enter food weight in Auto Defrost, you
must specify pounds and tenths of a pound.
If the weight on the food package is in fractions of a
pound, you can use the following table to convert
the weight to decimals.
3.

5.
vFor best results, remove fish, shell fish, 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.
vFor 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.
vPlace foods in a shallow container or on a
microwave roasting rack to catch drippings.
This table shows food type selections and the
weights you can set for each type. For best results,
loosen or remove covering on food.

AUTO DEFROST
Defrosting Tips
vWhen 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).
vBeforeg
Startin, 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.
vOpen containers, such as cartons, before placing in the
oven.
v Always slit or pierce plastic pouches or packaging.
vIf food is foil wrappe, remove foil and place food in a
suitable container.
vSlit the skin of skinned food, such as sausage.
vThe length of defrosting time varies according to how
solidly the food is frozen.
vThe shape of the package affects how quickly food will
defrost. Shallow packages will defrost more quickly than
a deep block.
v As food begins to defrost, separate the pieces.
Separated pieces defrost more easily.
v Use small pieces of aluminum foil to shiele 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.
v Bend plastic pouches of food to ensure even defrosting.
vFor better results, let food stand after defrosting.
v Always underestimate
defrosting
time. If defrosted food
is still icy in the center, return it to the microwave oven
for more defrosting.
v Turn over food during defrosting or standing time.
Break apart and remove food as required.

the outside with mild soap and water; rinse and dry with
a soft cloth. Do not use any type of household or abrasive
cleaner.
