TYPES OF HEATING
Oven modes
The following table represents the various oven modes and settings of your oven.
Use the cooking guide tables for those modes as guidelines for cooking.
Mode
Description
CONVECTION
Food is heated by two heating elements on top and back of
cavity while the fan from back distributes the hot air evenly.
This setting is suitable for roasting meat, baking gratins and
cake.
GRILL
Uses the direct fire from the upper grill to broil food. This mode
is especially useful for fish or steak.
MICROWAVE
Microwave energy is used to cook, reheat or defrost food.
By using this mode you can save time. It provides efficient cooking
without changing colour or shape of food. Time and power level is
selected manually according to types of food and its weight.
MICROWAVE+GRILL
Food is heated by the top heating elements combined with a
cycle of microwave energy. We recommend this mode for grilling
chicken pieces, fish and frozen snacks.
MICROWAVE+CONVECTION
Food is heated by convection heating element, combined with
a cycle of microwave energy. This setting is suitable for speed
roasting meat and speed baking gratins and frozen convenience
food.
STEAM CLEAN
By the help of hot steam the surface of the oven cavity will be
soaked and you can easily clean your oven. The steam clean
programme takes only 10 minutes time.
STEAM
Food is cooked by steam provided by the steam generator and
injected into the cavity by several jet nozzles.
This mode is suitable for steaming food like vegetables, fish,
eggs, fruits and rice. When cooking by using this mode, always
fill the water tank with fresh water.

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 to:
• Defrost
• Cook
Cooking principle
1. The microwaves generated by the magnetron
are distributed uniformly by using a stirrer
distribution system. 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)
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

• You can change the cooking time and temperature during the cook.
- Just turn the +/- DIAL or press SELECT/START (
) button.
• Do not use the multi-pan, insert rack, aluminum foil, or gilt/tin foil. This may
cause fire.
• A sealed container or packed food, such as eggs or chestnuts, can blow-up
during cooking. Put such food on a heat-resistant dish before cooking.
• Liquids can boil over, resulting in burns when removing the dish. Wait at least
30 seconds before removing the dish.

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 special hints and tips).

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
Cooking Guide for fresh vegetables
Use a suitable glass pyrex bowl with lid. Add 30-45 ml cold water (2-3 tbsp.) for
every 250 g unless another water quantity is recommended – see table. Cook
covered for the minimum time – see table. Continue cooking to get the result you
prefer. Stir once during and once after cooking. Add salt, herbs or butter after
cooking. Cover during a standing time of 3 minutes.
OVEN USE
After cooking is over food the standing time is important to allow the temperature
to even out within the food.
Cut the fresh vegetables into even sized pieces. The smaller they are cut,
the quicker they will cook.
All fresh vegetables should be cooked using full microwave power (800 W).

Reheating
Your microwave oven will reheat food in a fraction of the time that conventional
ovens hobs normally take. Use the power levels and reheating times in the
following chart as a guide. The times in the chart consider liquids with a room
temperature of about +18 to +20 °C or a chilled food with a temperature of about
+5 to +7 °C.
Arranging and covering
Avoid reheating large items such as joint of meat – they tend to overcook and
dry out before the centre is piping hot. Reheating small pieces will be more
successful.
Power levels and stirring
Some foods can be reheated using 800 W power while others should be
reheated using 600 W, 450 W or even 300 W.
Check the tables for guidance. In general, it is better to reheat food using a lower
power level, if the food is delicate, in large quantities, or if it is likely to heat up
very quickly (mince pies, for example).
Stir well or turn food over during reheating for best results. When possible, stir
again before serving.
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby foods. To prevent eruptive
boiling of liquids and possible scalding, stir before, during and after heating.
Keep them in the microwave oven during standing time. We recommend putting
a plastic spoon or glass stick into the liquids. Avoid overheating (and therefore
spoiling) the food.
It is preferable to underestimate cooking time and add extra heating time, if
necessary.
Heating and standing times
When reheating food for the first time, it is helpful to make a note of the time
taken – for future reference.
Always make sure that the reheated food is piping hot throughout.
Allow food to stand for a short time after reheating - to let the temperature even out.
The recommended standing time after reheating is 2-4 minutes, unless another
time is recommended in the chart.
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby food. See also the chapter
with the safety precautions.

USING THE MICROWAVE+CONVECTION MODE
This mode combines the microwave energy with the hot
air and is therefore reducing the cooking time while giving

by a fan on the back-wall.
Microwave+Convection (
) mode setting

• We advise to use Citric acid when you descale the machine. Citric acid is a
highly effective descaler made exclusively from natural, totally biodegradable
substances.
• It is non-corrosive, non-aggressive and has no environmental impact. As well
as being an affective descaler, it also has an antimicrobial sanitising action, thus
helping to ensure the hygiene of the machine’s internal components, preserve
the taste of the food over time and extend the working life of the machine.
• Water is used for steam cooking, which contains calcium and magnesium.
Through heating, water evaporates and only the floating materials (minerals)
remain (not harmful to humans).
• If the descaling cycle is interrupted before completion, the programme must be
started again from the beginning.
