Maintenance

Cleaning

Clean the oven regularly to prevent impurities from building up on or inside the oven. Also pay special attention to the door, door sealing, and turntable and roller ring (applicable models only).

If the door won’t open or close smoothly, first check if the door seals have built up impurities. Use a soft cloth in soapy water to clean both the inner and outer sides of the oven. Rinse and dry well.

To remove stubborn impurities with bad smells from inside the oven

1. With an empty oven, put a cup of diluted lemon juice on the centre of the turntable.

2. Heat the oven for 10 minutes at max power.

3. When the cycle is complete, wait until the oven cools down. Then, open the door and clean the cooking chamber.

To clean inside swing-heater models

To clean the upper area of the cooking chamber, lower the top heating element by

45° as shown. This will help clean the upper area. When done, reposition the top heating element.

Oven use

How a microwave oven works

Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy released enables food to be cooked or reheated without changing either the form or the colour.

You can use your microwave oven to:

• Defrost

• Reheat

• Cook

Cooking principle.

1. The microwaves generated by the magnetron reflected at cavity and are distributed uniformly as the food rotates on the turntable. The food is thus cooked evenly.

2. The microwaves are absorbed by the food up to a depth of about 1 inch

(2.5 cm). Cooking then continues as the heat is dissipated within the food.

3. Cooking times vary according to the container used and the properties of the food:

• Quantity and density

• Water content

• Initial temperature (refrigerated or not)

IMPORTANT

As the centre of the food is cooked by heat dissipation, cooking continues even when you have taken the food out of the oven. Standing times specified in recipes and in this booklet must therefore be respected to ensure:

• Even cooking of the food right to the centre.

• The same temperature throughout the food.

Microwaves

Microwave energy actually penetrates food, attracted and absorbed by its water, fat and sugar content.

The microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move rapidly. The rapid movement of these molecules creates friction and the resulting heat cooks the food.

Cooking

Cookware for microwave cooking:

Cookware must allow microwave energy to pass through it for maximum efficiency. Microwaves are reflected by metal, such as stainless steel, aluminium and copper, but they can penetrate through ceramic, glass, porcelain and plastic as well as paper and wood. So food must never be cooked in metal containers.

Food suitable for microwave cooking:

Many kinds of food are suitable for microwave cooking, including fresh or frozen vegetables, fruit, pasta, rice, grains, beans, fish, and meat. Sauces, custard, soups, steamed puddings, preserves, and chutneys can also be cooked in a microwave oven. Generally speaking, microwave cooking is ideal for any food that would normally be prepared on a hob. Melting butter or chocolate, for example (see the chapter with tips, techniques and hints).

Covering during cooking

To cover the food during cooking is very important, as the evaporated water rises as steam and contributes to cooking process. Food can be covered in different ways: e.g. with a ceramic plate, plastic cover or microwave suitable cling film.

Standing times

After cooking is over food the standing time is important to allow the temperature to even out within the food.
