IMPORTANT PRECAUTIONS
This appliance is designed for domestic use only!
•
The appliance should not be operated without food in the oven when using microwaves.
Operation in this manner is likely to damage the appliance.
•
If you practice operating the oven, put a glass of water inside. The water will absorb the microwave
energy and the oven will not be damaged.
•
Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before placing bag in the oven.
DEEP-FRYING
•
Do not use your microwave oven for deep-frying, because the oil temperature cannot be
controlled.
•
Use hot pads or oven mitts to prevent burns, when touching containers, oven parts, and pan after
cooking.
•
Do not use the cavity for any storage purposes.
LIQUIDS
•
E.g. beverages or water. Overheating the liquid beyond boiling point can occur without evidence
of bubbling. This could result in a sudden boil over of the hot liquid. To prevent this possibility the
following steps should be taken:
1. Avoid using straight-sided containers with narrow necks.
2. Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and let the teaspoon remain in the container.
3. After heating, allow standing for a short time, stirring again before carefully removing the container from the oven.
CAREFUL
•
Always refer to a microwave cookbook for details. Especially, if cooking or reheating food that
contains alcohol.
•
After heating baby food or liquids in a baby bottle or in a baby food jar, always stir and check the
temperature before serving. This will ensure that the heat is evenly distributed and the risk of
scalding or burns can be avoided. Ensure the Lid and the Teat is removed before heating!

TURNTABLE SUPPORT
•
Use the turntable support under the Glass turntable. Never put any other utensils on the turntable
support. Fit the turntable support in the oven.
GLASS TURNTABLE
•

to 30 seconds. Each additional press increases the time with 30 seconds. You may also alter the time by
pressing the +/- buttons to increase or decrease the time after the function has started.
MANUAL DEFROST
Follow the procedure for “cook & reheat with microwaves” and choose power level 160 W when
defrosting manually.
Check and inspect the food regularly. Experience will give you the times needed for various amounts.
•
Frozen food in plastic bags, plastic films or cardboard packages can be placed directly in the oven
as long as the package has no metal parts (e.g. metal twist ties)
•
The shape of the package alters the defrosting time. Shallow packets defrost more quickly than a
deep block.
•
Separate pieces as they begin to defrost. Individual slices defrost more easily.
•
Shield areas of food with small pieces of aluminum foil if they start to become warm (e.g. chicken
legs and wing tips).
•
Turn large joints halfway through the defrosting process.
•
Boiled food, stews, meat and sauces defrost better if stirred during defrosting time.
•
When defrosting it is better to under thaw the food slightly and allow the process to finish during
standing time.
•
Standing time after defrosting always improves the result since the temperature will then be evenly
distributed throughout the food.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
Cleaning is the only maintenance normally required.
Failure to maintain the oven in a clean condition could lead to deterioration of the surface that could
adversely affect the life of the appliance and possibly result in a hazardous situation.
•
Do not use metal scouring pads, abrasive cleansers, steel-wool pads, gritty washcloths, etc. which
can damage the control panel, and the interior and exterior oven surfaces. Use a sponge with
a mild detergent or a paper towel with spray glass cleaner. Apply spray glass cleaner to a paper
towel. Do not spray directly on the oven.
•
At regular intervals, especially if spill overs have occurred, remove the turntable, the turntable
support and wipe the base of the oven clean.
•

My food is not cooking properly?
•
•
•
Check that the power level and cooking time that you have set, is appropriate for the food that you
are cooking.
If you are cooking a double amount of food, then you will normally need to almost double the
cooking time.
If the food that you have placed in the cavity is colder than normal, then the power level and
cooking time may need to be increased.
I’m getting condensation in my oven?
•
•
•
•
Steam and condensation are a natural by product of cooking in a microwave.
Do not leave food in the oven to cool after it has been cooked and the oven has been switched off.
Use a covered container, where practical, when cooking to reduce the amount of condensation
that forms.
You should wipe over any condensation that has formed, as soon as the food has stopped cooking
