deteriorate and this may shorten the oven’s working life and
could even result in a dangerous situation.

The door contact surfaces (the front of the cavity and the inside
part of the doors) must be kept very clean in order to ensure the
oven functions correctly.

DO NOT USE HARSH ABRASIVE CLEANERS OR SHARP
METAL SCRAPERS TO CLEAN THE OVEN DOOR GLASS
SINCE THEY CAN SCRATCH THE SURFACE, WHICH MAY
RESULT IN SHATTERING OF THE GLASS.

Please follow the instructions regarding cleaning in the section
“Oven Cleaning and Maintenance”.

11 RECOMMENDED COOKING TABLES
11.1 Cooking with Microwaves
Warning! Read the section “Safety Precautions” before cooking with
your microwave.
Follow these recommendations when cooking with microwaves:

Before heating or cooking foods with peel or skin (e.g. apples,
tomatoes, potatoes, sausages) prick them so that they do not
burst. Cut the food up before starting to prepare it.

Before using a container or dish make sure that it is suitable for
microwave use (see the section on types of ovenware).

When cooking food with very little moisture (e.g. defrosting
bread, making popcorn, etc.) evaporation is very quick. The
oven then works as if it was empty and the food may burn. The
oven and the container may be damaged in such a situation.
You should therefore set just the cooking time necessary and
you must keep a close eye on the cooking process.

It is not possible to heat large quantities of oil (frying) in the
microwave.

Remove pre-cooked food from the containers they come in
since these are not always heat resistant. Follow the food
manufacturer’s instructions.

If you have several containers, such as cups, for example, set
them out uniformly on the turntable plate.

Do not close plastic bags with metal clips. Use plastic clips
instead. Prick the bags several times so that the steam can
escape easily.

When heating or cooking foods, check that they reach at least a
temperature of 158°F.

During cooking, steam may form on the oven door window and
may start to drip. This situation is normal and may be more
noticeable if the room temperature is low. The oven’s safe
working is not affected by this. After you have finished cooking,
clean up the water coming from the condensation

When heating liquids, use containers with a wide opening, so
that the steam can evaporate easily.
Prepare the foods as per the instructions and keep in mind the cooking
times and power levels indicated in the tables.
Keep in mind that the figures given are only indicative and can vary
depending on the initial state, temperature, moisture and type of food. It is
advisable to adjust the times and power levels to each situation.
Depending on the exact characteristics of the food you may need to
increase or shorten the cooking times or increase or decrease the power
levels.

11.1.1
Cooking with microwaves...
1. The greater the amount of food, the longer the cooking time. Keep in
mind that:

Double the quantity » double the time

Half the quantity » half the time
2. The lower the temperature, the longer the cooking time.
3. Foods containing a lot of liquid heat up more quickly.
4. Cooking will be more uniform if the food is evenly distributed on the
turntable. If you put dense foods on the outside part of the plate and less
dense ones on the centre of the plate, you can heat up different types of
food simultaneously.
5. You can open the oven door at any time. When you do this the oven
switches off automatically. The microwave will only start working again
when you close the door and press the start key.
6. Foods that are covered require less cooking time and retain their
characteristics better. The lids used must let microwaves pass through and
have small holes that allow steam to escape

11.1.3 Using the browning plate
Normally when cooking food, such as pizzas or pies, on a grill or in a
microwave oven, the dough or pastry becomes soggy. This can be
avoided by using a browning plate. As a high temperature is reached
quickly on the bottom of the browning plate, the crust turns crisp and
brown.
The browning plate can also be used for bacon, eggs, sausages, etc.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTES:

Use oven gloves at all times as the browning plate will become
very hot.

Never place the browning plate in the oven without the glass
plate.

Do not place any recipients on the browning plate that are not
heat-resistant (plastic bowls for example).
How to cook with the browning plate:
1. Preheat the browning plate by selecting the Microwave and Grill
function for 3 to 5 minutes with a 600 W microwaves power level.
2. Brush the browning plate with oil in order to brown the food nicely.
3. Place the fresh or frozen food directly on the browning plate.
4. Place the browning plate on the glass turntable in the microwave oven.
5. Select the Microwaves and Grill function and the cooking time as
described below.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTES:
As the browning plate has a Teflon layer, if you use it incorrectly, it can be
damaged.
Never cut the food on the plate. Remove the food from the plate prior to
cutting.
Cleaning:
The best way to clean the browning plate is to wash it with hot water and
detergent and rinse off with clean water. Do not use a scrubbing brush or
a hard sponge otherwise the top layer will be damaged.
11.1.4
Defrosting with Microwaves
General instructions for defrosting
1.When defrosting, use only dishes that are appropriate for microwaves
(china, glass, suitable plastic).
23
Instructions for the User
USA
2. The defrost function by weight and the tables refer to the defrosting of
raw food.
3. The defrosting time depends on the quantity and thickness of the food.
When freezing food keep the defrosting process in mind. Distribute the
food evenly in the container.
4. Distribute the food as best as possible inside the oven. The thickest
parts of fish or chicken drumsticks should be turned towards the outside.
You can protect the most delicate parts of food with pieces of aluminium
foil. Important: The aluminium foil must not come into contact with the
oven cavity interior as this can cause electrical arcing.
5. Thick portions of food should be turned several times.
6. Distribute the frozen food as evenly as possible since narrow and thin
portions defrost more quickly than the thicker and broader parts.
7. Fat-rich foods such as butter, cream cheese and cream should not be
completely defrosted. If they are kept at room temperature they will be
ready to be served in a few minutes. With ultra-frozen cream, if you find
small pieces of ice in it, you should mix these in before serving.
8. Place poultry on an upturned plate so that the meat juices can run off
more easily.
9. Bread should be wrapped in a napkin so that it does not become too
dry.
10. Turn the food whenever the oven lets out a beep and the DSP1
displays the word:
.
11. Remove frozen food from its wrapping and do not forget to take off any
metal twist-tags. For containers that are used to keep frozen food in the
freezer and which can also be used for heating and cooking, all you need
to do is take off the lid. For all other cases you should put the food into
containers that are suitable for microwave use.
12. The liquid resulting from defrosting, principally that from poultry, should
be discarded. In no event should such liquids be allowed to come into
contact with other foods.
13. Do not forget that by using the defrosting function you need to allow for
standing time until the food is completely defrosted.

11.2 Cooking with the Grill Element
For good results with the grill, use the rack supplied with the oven.
Fit the rack in such a way that it doesn’t come into contact with the metal
surfaces of the oven cavity since if it does there is a danger of electric
arcing which may damage the oven.
IMPORTANT POINTS:
1. When the grill is used for the first time there will be some smoke and a
smell coming from the oils used during oven manufacture.
2. The oven door window becomes very hot when the grill is working.
Keep children away.
3. When the grill is operating, the cavity walls and the grid iron become
very hot. You should use oven gloves.
4. If the grill is used for extended period of time it is normal to find that the
elements will switch themselves off temporarily due to the safety
thermostat.
5. Important! When food is to be grilled or cooked in containers you must
check that the container in question is suitable for microwave use. See the
section on types of ovenware!
6. When the grill is used it is possible that some splashes of fat may go
onto the elements and be burnt. This is a normal situation and does not
mean there is any kind of operating fault.
7. After you have finished cooking, clean the interior and the accessories
so that cooking remains do not become encrusted.

drop. The times shown are merely indicative and can vary as a function of
the composition and quantity of the food, as well as the final condition
wished for. Fish and meat taste great if, before grilling, you brush them
with vegetable oil, spices and herbs and leave to marinate for a few hours.
Only add salt after grilling.
26
USA
Instructions for the User
Sausages will not burst if you prick them with a fork before grilling.
After half the grilling time has passed, check on how the cooking is going
and, if necessary, turn the food over.
The grill is especially suitable for cooking thin portions of meat and fish.
Thin portions of meat only need to be turned once, but thicker portions
should be turned several times. Heat up the grill beforehand for 2 minutes.
11.2.2
Grill Element + Fan
The fan reduces the fierce heat from the grill, providing an excellent
method for grilling a range of foods, chops, steaks, sausages, etc. without
having to turn the food during cooking. This gives good results, reduces
drying out of foods and gives even browning and heat distribution.
11.2.3

11.3 Cooking with the Round Heating Element
11.3.1
Round Heating Element + Fan
The combination of the fan and round heating element around it, gives
uniform heat distribution with no cold spots. This results in many benefits –
no flavour transfer when cooking different foods at the same time, less
energy is needed, and it cooks at 10% quicker than a normal oven. All
foods can be cooked with this function.
IMPORTANT POINTS:
1. When the round heating element is used for the first time there will be
some smoke and a smell coming from the oils used during oven
manufacture.
2. The oven door window becomes very hot when the oven is working.
Keep children away.
3. When the oven is operating, the cavity walls and the ovenware become
very hot. You should use oven gloves.
4. Important! When food is to be cooked in containers you must check that
the container in question is suitable for microwave use. See the section on
types of ovenware!

Advice for roasting meat
Turn the pieces of meat halfway through the cooking time. When the
roasted meat is ready you should let it stand for 10 minutes in the oven
with this switched off and closed. This will ensure the juices in the meat
are well distributed.
Add 2 to 3 soup spoons of gravy or similar liquid to lean meat and 8 to 10
soup spoons to stews, depending on the amount of meat in question.
The roasting temperature and time required depends on the type and
amount of meat being cooked.
28
USA
Instructions for the User
If the weight of the meat to be roasted does not appear on the table
choose the settings for the weight immediately below and extend the
cooking times.
Advice on ovenware
Check that the ovenware fits inside the oven.
Hot glass containers should be put on a dry kitchen cloth. If such
containers are put on a cold or wet surface the glass may crack and break.
Use oven gloves to take the ovenware out of the oven.

Advice on cake baking ware
The most commonly used type of baking ware is black metal tins. If you
are also going to use the microwave, use glass, ceramic or plastic baking
ware. These must be able to withstand temperatures up to 250ºC. If you
use these types of baking ware the cakes are not browned as much.
Advice on how to bake cakes
Different amounts and types of pastry require different temperatures and
baking times. Try low settings first of all and then, if necessary, use higher
temperatures next time. A lower temperature will result in more uniform
baking. Always put the cake tray in the centre of the turntable.
Baking suggestions
How to check if the cake is properly cooked
Start sticking a tooth pick in the highest part of the cake 10 minutes before
the end of the baking time. When no dough sticks to the tooth pick the
cake is ready.
If the cake is very dark on the outside
Next time choose a lower temperature and let the cake bake for a longer
time.
If the cake is very dry
Make small holes in the cake with a tooth pick after baking has finished.
Then sprinkle the cake with some fruit juice or alcoholic drink. Next time
increase the temperature by about 50ºF and reduce the baking time.
If the cake does not come free when turned
Let the cake cool down for 5 to 10 minutes after baking and it will come
out of the tin more easily. If the cake still does not come free run a knife
carefully around the edges. Next time grease the cake tin well.
29
Instructions for the User
USA
Advice on saving energy
When you are making more than one cake, it is advisable to bake them in
the oven one after the other when the oven is still hot. This lets you
reduce the baking time for the second and later cakes.
It is preferable to use dark coloured baking ware - painted or enamelled
black – since such baking tins absorb heat better.
When dealing with long baking times, you can switch the oven off 10
minutes before the end of the time and make use of the residual heat to
complete the baking.
11.3.2
Microwaves + Round Heating Element + Fan
The use of microwaves with round heating element and the fan allows the
food to be cooked faster and effectively. Ideal for roasting large chunks of
meat. There is no transference of smells or flavours when using this
function.
11.3.3
Grill Element + Round Heating Element + Fan
The use of the fan with both elements allows the food to be cooked quickly
and effectively. Ideal for roasts and large joints that require thorough
cooking. There is no transference of smells or flavours when using this
function. This function offers a similar result to rotisserie, it moves the heat
around the food, instead of moving the food itself, enabling any size or
shape to be cooked, and not only items that will fit onto a rotisserie.
11.4 Pizza Function
Warning! Read the section “Using the browning plate” before
cooking with the Pizza function.
It is not necessary to pre-heat the browning plate to cook Pizzas.
Place the pizza directly on the browning plate.
Place the browning plate on the centre of the glass turntable in the
microwave oven.
Warning: the cavity walls and the browning plate become very hot. Care
should be taken to avoid touching heating elements, cavity walls or the
browning plate. The use of oven gloves is highly recommended to avoid
burns.

11.5 What kind of ovenware can be used?
11.5.1
11.5.2
11.5.3
11.5.4
Microwaves function
For the microwave function, keep in mind that microwaves are reflected by
metal surfaces. Glass, china, clay, plastic, and paper let microwaves pass.
For this reason, metal pans and dishes or containers with metal parts or
decorations cannot be used in the microwave. Glass ware and clay with
metallic decoration or content (e.g. lead crystal) cannot be used in
microwave ovens.
The ideal materials for use in microwave ovens are glass, refractory china
or clay, or heat resistant plastic. Very thin, fragile glass or china should
only be used for short period of times (e.g. heating).
Hot food transmits heat to the dishes which can become very hot. You
should, therefore, always use an oven glove!
To test ovenware, put the item you want to use in the oven for 20 seconds
at maximum microwave power. After that time, if it is cold or just slightly
warm, it is suitable to use. However, if it heats up a lot or causes electric
arcing it is not suitable for microwave use.
Grill Element and Round Heating Element functions
In the case of the grill function, the ovenware must be resistant to
temperature of at least 572°F.
Plastic dishes are not suitable for use in the grill.
Combination functions
In the combination functions (microwaves + conventional heating
elements), the ovenware used must be suitable for use in both the
microwave and the grill.
Aluminium containers and foil
Pre-cooked food in aluminium containers or in aluminium foil can be put in
the microwave if the following aspects are respected:

Keep in mind the manufacturer’s recommendations written on
the packaging.

The aluminium containers cannot be more than 3 cm high or
come in contact with the cavity walls (minimum distance 3
cm). Any aluminium lid or top must be removed.

Put the aluminium container directly on top of the turntable
plate. If you use the grid iron, put the container on a china plate.
Never put the container directly on the grid iron!

The cooking time is longer because the microwaves only enter
the food from the top. If you have any doubts, it is best to use
only dishes suitable for microwave use.

Aluminium foil can be used to reflect microwaves during the
defrosting process. Delicate food, such as poultry or minced
meat, can be protected from excessive heat by covering the
respective extremities/edges.

Important: aluminium foil cannot come into contact with the
cavity walls since this may cause electrical arcing.

Lids
We recommend you use glass or plastic lids or cling film since:
1. This will stop excessive evaporation (mainly during very long cooking
times);
2. The cooking times are shorter;
3. The food does not become dry;
4. The aroma is preserved.
The lid should have holes or openings so that no pressure develops.
Plastic bags must also be opened. Baby feeding bottles or jars with baby
food and similar containers can only be heated without their tops / lids
otherwise they can burst.
The table below gives you a general idea of what type of ovenware is
suitable for each situation.

12 CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Before carrying out any operations, disconnect the appliance from the
electricity supply. Take the plug out of the socket or switch off the oven’s
power circuit.
Warning! Never use a jet of steam for cleaning the inside of the oven.
Warning! Your microwave oven should be cleaned regularly, with all food
remains being removed. If the microwave is not kept clean its surfaces
may deteriorate, reducing the oven’s working life and possibly resulting in
a dangerous situation.
12.1 Cleaning stainless steel
To keep stainless steel in good condition, it must be cleaned regularly,
after each use of the oven, after allowing it to cool.
12.2 Routine daily cleaning
When cleaning and caring for stainless steel surfaces, always use only
specific products which do not contain abrasives or chlorine-based acids.
Instructions for use: pour the product onto a damp cloth and wipe over
the surface, then rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth or chamois
leather.
12.3 Food stains or spills
Never use metal scouring pads or sharp scrapers which will
damage the surface.
Use ordinary non-abrasive products with the aid of wooden or
plastic utensils if necessary. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft
cloth or chamois leather.
Do not allow spills of foods with high sugar content (e.g. jam) to
dry inside the oven. If they dry for too long, they might damage
the enamel coating of the inside of the oven.
Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers
to clean the oven door glass since they can scratch the
surface, which may result in shattering of the glass.
12.4 Cleaning the oven cavity
Cleaning is the only maintenance normally required.
After each time the oven is used, clean the inside walls with a damp cloth
since this is the easiest way to remove splashes or spots of food that may
have stuck to the inside.

To remove dirt that is harder to shift, use a non-aggressive cleaning
product. Do not use oven sprays or other aggressive or abrasive cleaning
products.
Always keep the door and the oven front very clean to ensure that the
door opens and closes properly.
Make sure water does not enter the microwave ventilation holes.
Regularly take out the turntable plate and the respective support and clean
the cavity base, especially after any liquid spillage.
Do not switch on the oven without the turntable and the respective
support being in place.
If the oven cavity is very dirty, put a glass of water on the turntable and
switch on the microwave oven for 2 or 3 minutes at maximum power. The
steam released will soften the dirt which can then be cleaned easily using
a soft cloth.
Unpleasant odours (e.g. after cooking fish) can be eliminated easily. Put a
few drops of lemon juice in a cup with water. Put a spoonful of coffee in
the cup to avoid the water boiling over. Heat the water for 2 to 3 minutes at
maximum microwave power.
12.5 Cleaning the cavity ceiling
If the oven ceiling is dirty, the grill can be lowered to make cleaning easier.
To avoid the danger of burning, wait until the
grill is cold before lowering it.
Proceed as follows:
1. Turn the grill support by 356ºF (1).
2. Lower the grill gently (2). Do not use
excessive force as this may cause damage.
3. After cleaning the ceiling, put the grill (2)
back in its place, carrying out the previous
operation.
IMPORTANT WARNING: The grill heating
element support (1) may fall when it is rotated. If this happens, insert the grill
heating element support (1) into the slot in the ceiling of the cavity and rotate it
90º to the grill heating element support (2) position.
The mica cover (3) located in the ceiling must always be kept clean. Any
food remains that collect on the mica cover can cause damage or provoke
sparks.
Do not use abrasive cleaning products or sharp objects.
To avoid any risk, do not remove the mica cover.
The glass lamp cover (4) is located on the oven ceiling and can be removed
easily for cleaning. For this you just need to unscrew it and clean it with water
and dishwashing liquid.
12.6 Cleaning the accessories
Clean the accessories after each use. If they are very dirty, soak them first of
all and then use a brush and sponge. The accessories can be washed in a
dish washing machine.
Make sure that the turntable plate and the respective support are always clean.
Do not switch on the oven unless the turntable and the respective support are
in place.

When the oven is operating I can hear some strange noises! Check if:

There is any electrical arcing inside the oven caused by foreign
metallic objects (see section on type of ovenware).

The ovenware is touching the oven walls.

There are any loose items of cutlery or cooking tools inside the
oven.
The food doesn’t heat up or heats very slowly! Check if:

You have inadvertently used metal ovenware.

You have selected the correct operating times and power level.

The food you have put inside the oven is a larger amount or
colder than you usually put in.
The food is too hot, dried out or burnt! Check if:

This is not a problem. The cooling fan keeps on working for
some time. When the temperature has dropped sufficiently, the
fan will switch itself off.
The oven switches on but the interior light does not go on!

If all the functions work properly it is probable that the lamp has
blown. You can keep on using the oven.
