The oven should be cleaned regularly and food deposits removed. Failure to maintain the oven in a clean condition can
affect the life of the appliance and possibly result in a hazardous
situation. (See cleaning your microwave )
GB-6
safety information
do not use these in your microwave
before use
● Never use equipment made of metal, except foil in your
microwave oven. The microwave energy cannot pass through
the metal so it bounces off and sparks against the inside of the
oven.
● Stop the microwave straight away if any equipment does cause
sparks.
● Remember that some crockery has a metal trim around the
edge. Even this trim can cause sparks.
Containers / Certain Foods
WARNING
: Pressure will build up in sealed containers and
cause them to explode. Therefore, do not use
the following in your microwave:
¨ Sealed containers
¨ Capped bottles
¨ Vacuum containers
¨ Sealed jars
¨ Hard-boiled egg
¨ Eggs in their shells
¨ Nuts
● Always pierce the skin of fruit and vegetables, such as
potatoes.
● Never use scratched, cracked or damaged glass in a micro
wave. Damaged glass can explode.
delayed boiling
Liquids heated in a microwave can boil up when removing them
from the microwave.
Take the following precautions :
● Always stir liquids before and after cooking.
● Allow them to stand.
● Use containers that are wider at the top than the bottom.
preparing food for babies
Extra care must be taken when preparing food or drink for babies
and small children.
● Always test the food or liquid temperature before giving it to a
baby.
● When using a baby bottle, ensure the teat is removed before
heating.
● When warming milk, ensure the bottle is shaken.
caution!
During cooking, the outer surface will become hot, do not touch
outer casing of the appliance. Care should be taken not to store
any items on top of your microwave oven.
GB-7

GB-8
using aluminium foil in your microwave
It is safe to use aluminium foil in your microwave oven as long as
you follow these safety guidelines.
before use
As with all metal, microwave energy cannot pass through foil, but
provided that you keep the foil away from the side of the oven it
will not cause sparks and there will not be any damage to
your oven.
Using foil is a good way of shielding parts of food that you do not
want to cook as quickly as others – perhaps where the food is
thinner and would otherwise overcook.
Place the foil over the area you want to shield, taking care that
the foil will not touch the sides of the oven when the turntable rotates. Only use one piece of foil at a time so that you do not get
sparks between the separate pieces.
Follow these guidelines when using foil in your microwave:
● Remove foil lids from containers before using in the micro
wave. Some lids are made of card with a foil covering – these
should be removed too. Use a microwave-safe transparent lid if
possible.
● Stir food during cooking if the container has a lid or film cover.
● Always use the glass turntable.
● Use shallow containers with a large surface area. Do not use
containers that are more than 1.25in (3.5cm) deep.
● Use oven gloves when handling hot foil containers.
● Do not completely cover food with foil. The microwave energy
cannot pass through the foil so the food will not cook.
● Do not let aluminium foil touch the inside of the oven.
● Do not use more than one piece of foil in the oven at the same
time.
GB-9
unpacking and getting ready
This microwave oven is designed for home use. It
should not be used for commercial catering.
1. After unpacking your oven, check that it has
not been damaged whilst in the box. Make
sure there are no dents on the oven, and the
door closes properly. A dented or damaged
oven could allow microwave energy to escape.
Make sure that you have taken all the packaging from inside the oven. Please dispose of
the plastic wrappings or bags safely and keep
out of the reach of babies and young children.

2. Choose a flat work surface for your microwave
away from heat sources such as radiators or
fires and away from cold areas.
You should allow a 10cm space all around the
oven and 30cm above so that warm air can
escape from the vents during cooking – This
microwave is not designed to be built in. 1
3. Plug your oven into a standard household
electrical socket (230 volt, 13 amp rated).
Avoid using a socket that also has an adaptor
and other equipment plugged in. Do not use a
multi adaptor.
4. Put the turntable ring inside the oven and
place the glass turntable on top of the ring. 2
The turntable is shaped to sit securely on the
spindle. You must always use the turntable
and ring whenever you use the microwave.

introducing microwave cooking
before use
Always remember the basic safeguards you would follow when
using any cooking equipment or handling hot food.
See below for basic guidelines in microwave cooking.
If you are unfamiliar with using a microwave, refer to the back of
this instruction booklet for more information.
cooking with a microwave
● Cooking with a microwave is much faster than
conventional cooking and, whilst you should make
sure that food is fully cooked, you should be careful not to
overcook it.
● Microwave energy can heat unevenly so stirring to distribute
heat is very important. Always stir from the outside, inwards.
● If you are cooking a number of individual foods at the same
time, such as baked potatoes or small cakes, arrange them
evenly on the turntable so that they cook evenly. Never stack
food in your microwave.
● Turn larger foods such as meat roasts and poultry during
cooking so that the top and bottom cook evenly. It is also recommended to turn pieces of meat or poultry, especially if they
contain a bone.
● Meat and poultry which is cooked for 15 minutes or more will
brown lightly in its own fat. Anything cooked for a shorter time
can be brushed with a browning sauce to give an appetising
colour.
● Strips of aluminium foil can be used to cover the thinner pieces
of food to stop them overcooking before the thicker parts of
the food have had a chance to cook. Use the foil sparingly and
wrap around the food or container carefully to stop it touching
the inside of the oven which could cause sparks.
NOTE: You should always have your microwave checked by a
qualified technician if it has been dropped or damaged to
ensure it is safe to use.
GB-11
● Microwave ovens cook food using microwave
energy that is similar to naturally occurring radio
waves. Normally, these “waves” would fade as
they dispersed into the atmosphere but in a microwave oven they are concentrated onto food
causing it to heat up.
● Microwave energy cannot pass through metal
– so it cannot escape from inside your microwave oven – but it can pass through materials
like glass, porcelain, plastic and paper.
These materials are used in the manufacture of
microwave safe cooking equipment.
● Microwave safe cooking equipment will still get
hot as the food it contains heats up.
The microwave energy focuses on the moisture in
the food causing lots of tiny vibrations. The vibrations get so great that the moisture, and the food
heats up. (Fig 1)
checking your cooking utensils
Most heat-resistant, non-metallic cooking utensils
are safe to use in your microwave. If you are not
sure if you can use a utensil in your microwave,
follow this simple test:
1. Put the utensil into the oven next to a cup of
water – use a cup that you know is microwavesafe. Close the door.
2. Make sure that the grill is positioned in the
upwards position to the top of the microwave
(Do not use your hands to touch the grill as it
may already be hot). Turn the microwave oven
on for 30 seconds only.
3. At the end of the time, carefully check to see if
the water has warmed up.
If the water has not warmed up but the utensil
has, the utensil is not microwave-safe and
should not be used in the oven.

GB-13
before use
The heating characteristics and output power levels of microwave ovens are usually
calculated using a relatively large portion of food (a 1000 gram load, IEC 705) but many
packs of pre-cooked food are sold in smaller packs, often about 350 grams.
The government, in partnership with food companies and microwave manufacturers,
have set up a system of heating categories to help you choose the reheating time for
pre-cooked food.
steam
1
When you microwave food, steam is created as
water in the food heats up and evaporates.
The steam formed during microwave cooking is
entirely safe. It has to escape from the microwave to prevent pressure from building up
inside the oven. It does this through the vents
on the back of the oven and from around the
door.

condensation
As the steam cools, you may find the condensation gathers in small pools inside your microwave and on the work surface beneath the
door and vents.
Always dry the oven after cooking foods with a
high moisture content.
Your microwave is designed to let steam escape
from the vents and around the door without
microwave energy escaping. (Fig 1)
There is no danger of microwave energy escaping with the steam.

It is important that this wave guide cover is kept clean at all times.
The oven walls have a special enamel

any splashes or a paper towel to mop
up any spills. Wipe off grease with a
damp cloth and a little detergent. Dry
thoroughly. As with any oven, if grease
is left to accumulate, it can smoke and
even catch fire.
Make sure you keep the outlet grids clean.
Wash racks in warm water.
Do not use very hot water

them warp.

Keep the inside of the door clean with a

The inside of the door has a special

Treat the glass turntable as you would any glass plate. After you have used it

questions and answers
Q. Why doesn’t the food seem to cook?
A. Check that:
• the cooking time has been set
• the door is closed
• the power socket is not overloaded causing
the fuse to blow.
Q. Why does my oven sometimes take longer to cook than it says in the recipe?
A. First check that the oven was set just as
the recipe said.
Cooking times and heat settings are suggestions to help prevent overcooking but differences in the weight, size, shape and starting
Q. Why does the food seem undercooked or temperature of food will all affect how long it
overcooked?
takes to cook – just as it does with a conventional oven. Use your judgement along with
A. Check that:

• the correct cooking time has been set
cooked properly.
• the correct power setting has been used.
Q. Why do I get condensation on the inside
Q. How can I stop eggs from popping?
of the oven door?
A. When you cook or poach eggs in the
microwave, the yolk can sometimes pop as
steam builds up inside it. You can stop the
egg from popping by piercing the yolk with a
toothpick before cooking.
Never cook eggs that are still in their shells.
A. Condensation is perfectly normal, especially when you are cooking food with high
moisture content such as potatoes.
Q. Why is it so important that I allow
standing time after cooking?
A. No. The door has a special metal screen
with holes in that lets you see inside but
stops microwave energy from getting out.
A. With microwave cooking, many foods
build up enough heat inside them to continue
cooking even after they have been taken out
of the oven. Microwave cooking works from
the outside of food inwards, standing time
lets you cook the centre of the food just right
without the outside being overcooked.
GB-32
Q. Does the microwave energy get through
the window on the door?
Q. Steam comes out of the side of the door
and vents. Can microwave energy get out
too?
A. No. The door and vents are carefully
designed to let steam out during cooking but
keep microwave energy in. The gaps are not
big enough for microwave energy to escape.
questions and answers
Q. What happens if the microwave is
switched on while the oven is empty?
A. The microwave will be damaged. Do not
switch the microwave on when there is nothing inside the oven. It is a good idea to keep a
cup of water in the oven just in case someone accidentally starts the microwave.
Q. Why doesn’t the oven light illuminate?
A. Open the door. If the light does not illuminate, the bulb has probably blown. Call a
qualified repairer – do not try to change the
bulb yourself.
Q. There are sparks inside the oven when I
