ACCESSORIES
HOW A MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS
Depending on the model that you have purchased, you are supplied with several
accessories that can be used in a variety of ways.
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy released enables
food to be cooked or reheated without the foods form or colour changing.
2.Turntable, to be placed on the roller ring with the centre
fitting to the coupler.
Purpose: The turntable serves as the main cooking
surface; it can be easily removed for cleaning.
You can use your microwave oven to:
• Defrost (manual & auto)
• Cook
• Reheat
Cooking Principle.
DO NOT operate the microwave oven without the roller ring and turntable.
1. The microwaves generated by the magnetron are distributed
uniformly as the food rotates on the turntable. The food is
thus cooked evenly.
03 OVEN FEATURES
1. Roller ring, to be placed in the centre of the oven.
Purpose: The roller ring supports the turntable.
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 recipient 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.

05 COOKWARE GUIDE
To cook food in the microwave oven, the microwaves must be able to penetrate the food,
without being reflected or absorbed by the dish used.
Care must therefore be taken when choosing the cookware. If the cookware is marked
microwave-safe, you do not need to worry.

Guide for cooking meat in your microwave
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.
Place meat on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a microwave-safe dish.
Start meat fat-side down. Use narrow strips of aluminum foil to shield any bone tips or
thin meat areas. Check the temperature in several places before letting the meat stand
the recommended time. The following temperatures are removal temperatures.
The temperature of the food will rise during the standing time.
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.

Guide for cooking seafood in your microwave
Cook fish until it flakes easily with a fork. Place fish on a microwave-safe roasting rack in

High
Never cook eggs in the shell, and never warm hard-cooked eggs in the shell; they can
explode. Always pierce whole eggs to keep them from bursting.
Cook eggs just until set; they become tough if overcooked.
Guide for cooking vegetables in your microwave
Vegetables should be washed just before cooking. Often, no extra water is needed.
If dense vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and green beans are being cooked, add
about ¼ cup water. Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.) will cook
faster than larger ones.
Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or corn on the cob, should be
arranged in a circle on the turntable before cooking. They will cook more evenly if turned
over after half the cooking time. Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli
with the stem ends pointing towards the edge of the dish and the tips toward the center.
When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with a lid or vented microwavable
plastic wrap. Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash, eggplant, etc,
should have their skin pricked in several spots before cooking to prevent them from
bursting. For more even cooking, stir or rearrange whole vegetables halfway through the
cooking time. Generally, the denser the food, the longer the standing time. (Standing time
refers to the time necessary for dense, large foods and vegetables to finish cooking after
they come out of the oven.) A baked potato can stand on the counter for five minutes
before cooking is completed, while a dish of peas can be served immediately.
