Utensil Guide
Only use utensils that are suitable for use in microwave ovens.
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 choosing the utensil. If the
utensil is marked microwave-safe, you do not need to worry. The following table lists various of utensil
and indicates whether and how they should be used in a microwave oven.

MICROWAVING PRINCIPLES
Microwave energy has been used in this country to cook and reheat food since early experiments with RADAR
in World War ll. Microwaves are present in the atmosphere all the time, both naturally and manmade sources.
Manmade sources include radar, radio, television, telecommunication links and car phones.
HOW MICROWAVES COOK FOOD
Microwave oven is a Group 2 ISM equipment in which radiofrequency energy is intentionally generated and used
in the form of electromagnetic radiation for the treatment of material. This oven is a Class B equipment suitable
for use in domestic establishments and in establishments directly connected to a low voltage power supply
network which supplies buildings used for domestic purposes.

Absorption
Vibration
The microwaves cause the water molecules to
vibrate which causes FRICTION, i.e. HEAT. This
heat then cooks the food. Microwaves are also
attracted to fat and sugar particles, and foods high
in these will cook more quickly. Microwaves can
only penetrate to a depth of 11/2 - 2 inches(4-5cm)
and as heat spreads through the food by
conduction, just as in a traditional oven, the food
cooks from the outside inwards.
REFLECTION
The microwaves
bounce off the metal
walls and the metal
door screen.

COOKING TECHNIQUES
STANDING TIME
STARTING TEMPERATURE
Dense foods e.g. meat, jacket potatoes and cakes,
require standing time(inside or outside of the oven)
after cooking, to allow heat to finish conducting to
cook the center completely. Wrap meat joints and
jacket potatoes in aluminum foil while standing.
Meat joints need approx. 10-15 minutes, jacket
potatoes 5 minutes. Other foods such as plated
meal, vegetables, fish etc. require 2-5 minutes
standing. After defrosting food, standing time
should also be allowed. If food is not cooked after
standing time, return to the oven and cook for
additional time.
The colder the food, the longer it takes to heat up.
Food from a fridge takes longer to reheat than food
at room temperature.
MOISTURE CONTENT
Some foods require stirring during cooking. Meat
and poultry should be turned after half the cooking
time.
LIQUIDS
All liquids must be stirred before and during
heating. Water especially must be stirred before
and during heating, to avoid eruption. Do not heat
liquids that have previously been boiled. DO NOT
OVERHEAT.
TURNING & STIRRING
Many fresh foods e.g. vegetables and fruit, vary in
their moisture content throughout the season,
particularly jacket potatoes. For this reason cooking
times may have to be adjusted. Dry ingredients e.g.
rice, pasta, can dry out during storage so cooking
times may differ.
ARRANGING
Individual foods e.g. chicken portions or chops,
should be placed on a dish so that the thicker parts
are towards the outside.
DENSITY
QUANTITY
Porous airy foods heat more quickly than dense
heavy foods.
Small quantities cook faster than large quantities,
also small meals will reheat more quickly than large
portions.
CLING FILM
Cling film helps keep the food moist and the
trapped steam assists in speeding up cooking
times. Pierce before cooking to allow excess steam
to escape. Always take care when removing cling
film from a dish as the build-up of steam will be
very hot.
PIERCING
The skin or membrane on some foods will cause
steam to build up during cooking. These foods
must be pierced or a strip of skin should be peeled
off before cooking to allow the steam to escape.
Eggs, potatoes, apples, sausages etc, will all need
to be pierced before cooking. DO NOT ATTEMPT
TO BOIL EGGS IN THEIR SHELLS.
SHAPE
Even shapes cook evenly. Food cooks better by
microwave when in a round container rather than
square.
COVERING
Cover foods with microwave cling film or a lid.
Cover fish, vegetables, casseroles, soups. Do not
cover cakes, sauces, jacket potatoes or pastry
items.
SPACING
Foods cook more quickly and evenly if spaced
apart. NEVER pile foods on top of each other.
20
DEFROSTING GUIDE
GENERAL INFORMATION
• Put the food on a microwave rack (roasts, bone-in pieces) or in a microwave casserole (small pieces such
as cubes or strips) or weigh at home on a kitchen scale. Round number to the nearest tenth of a pound
and choose that number with each item pads.
• The shape of food items, especially bigger items, will affect the way it defrosts.
Always check the status after the standing time.
Fish, seafood, and poultry may still be icy in the center; hold them under running water to finish defrosting.
If more time is needed, use DEFROST by adding time in small increments.
• Halfway through the defrosting process, a series of beeps will indicate that it is time to change the position
of the item being defrosted. The includes turning over or rotating the item, separating defrosted pieces or
sections, or shielding.
• Shielding means to use a 2-inch strip of aluminum foil to protect thinner or unevenly shaped part from
beginning to cook. Microwave energy will not penetrate the foil. Some rules apply to the use of foil:
Do not let the foil pieces touch each other or the sides of the microwave oven.
Be sure that all ends are touched under and lie flat to the food.
Remember to adjust foil when an item is turned over and cover with wax paper.
• To prepare food for freezer storage(and later defrosting), wrap tightly in moisture proof packaging.
If using freezer plastic bags, be sure to let all the air out to prevent freezer bump on the food.
Package so that food is as evenly shaped as possible for ease in defrosting.
21
DEFROST AND COOKING CHART
The times given on the following chart are only for recommended guidelines.
Many factors (e.g.) starting temperature of the food can affect the final heating time required. The cooking
and defrosting times must be adjusted when necessary.
All times are tested using foods at starting temperatures as below ;
chilled foods -------- approx. +5°C
frozen foods -------- approx. -20°C
Always check for the correct core temperature with a temperature probe to comply with current
Government food Hygiene Regulations.

CARE OF YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
1
2
Turn the oven off before cleaning.
3
The outside oven surface should be cleaned with soap and water, rinsed and dried with a soft
cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts inside the oven, water should not be allowed to
seep into the ventilation openings.
4
If the Control Panel becomes wet, clean with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use harsh detergents or
abrasives on Control Panel.
5
If steam accumulates inside or around the outside of the oven door, wipe with a soft cloth. This
may occur when the microwave oven is operated under high humidity conditions and in no way
indicates malfunction of the unit.
6
Oven cavity floor should be cleaned regularly to avoid excessive noise. Simply wipe the bottom
surface of the oven with mild detergent water or window cleaner and dry.
Keep the inside of the oven clean. When food spatters or spilled liquids adhere to oven walls, wipe
with a damp cloth. Mild detergent may be used if the oven gets very dirty. The use of harsh
detergent or abrasives is not recommended.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Although your oven is provided with safety features, it is important to observe the following:
1. It is important not to defeat or tamper with safety interlocks.
2. Do not place any object between the oven front face and the door or allow residue to accumulate on
sealing surfaces. Wipe the sealing area frequently with a mild detergent, rinse and dry. Never use
abrasive powders or pads.
3. When opened, the door must not be subjected to strain, for example, a child hanging on an opened
door or any load could cause the oven to fall forward to cause injury and also damage to the door.
Do not operate the oven if it is damaged, until it has been repaired by a competent service
technician. It is particularly important that the oven closes properly and that there is no damage to
the:
i) Door(bent)
ii) Hinges and Hooks(broken or loosened)
iii) Door seals and sealing surfaces.
4. The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone except a properly competent service
technician.
5. The oven should be cleaned regularly and any food deposits should be removed.
6. 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.
NOTE: The appliance should not be cleaned with a water jet.
24
CLEANING THE CEILING COVER
1. Push left side of stopper in center of ceiling cover and separate it from cavity.
2. Hold side stoppers of ceiling cover with both hands and pull down. Then take off the Ceiling Cover
out of the oven cavity
3. Wash this Ceiling Cover in soapy water or Food Sanitizer Solution.
4. Be sure to replace the Ceiling Cover before using the oven.
Note Ceiling Cover must be placed securely when you use the oven.
When you remove the Ceiling Cover for the purpose of cleaning, be sure to be extremely careful about the
exposed inside components on the top of the oven cavity.
If any of them are deformed, abnormal symptom can happen such as arcing or sparks during operation.
In case of such problem, contact the nearest service center.
STOPPER
CLEANING THE AIR FILTER
Clean the Air Filter regularly according to the following instructions.
1. Remove the bolt at both ends of Air Filter.
2. Take the Air Filter off carefully.
3. Wash the Air Filter in warm soapy water.
4. Be sure to replace the Air Filter before using the oven.
Note If the Air Filter becomes clogged with debris, this will cause problem on the oven.
If you want to change the air filter clean time, refer to "clean filter message" in page 16.

USE YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN SAFELY
General Use
Do not attempt to defeat or tamper with safety
interlocks.
Do not place any object between the oven front
frame and the door or allow residue to build up on
sealing surfaces. Wipe with a mild detergent, rinse
and dry. Never use abrasive powders or pads.
Do not subject the oven door to strain or weight such
as a child hanging on an open door.
This could cause the oven to fall forward resulting in
injury to you and damage to the oven.
Do not operate the oven if door seals or sealing
surfaces are damaged; or if door is bent; or if hinges
are loose or broken.
Do not operate the oven empty. This will damage the
oven.
Do not attempt to dry clothes, newspapers or other
materials in the oven. They may catch on fire.
Do not use recycled paper products as they may
contain impurities which may cause sparks or fires.
Do not hit or strike the control panel with hard
objects. This can damage the oven.
Food
after the oven has been switched off to allow the
temperature to even out, stir during heating, if
necessary, and ALWAYS stir after heating. To
prevent eruptive boiling and possible scalding, you
should put a spoon or glass stick into the beverages
and stir before, during and after heating.
Do not leave the oven unattended while popping
corn.
Do not pop corn in a paper bag unless it is the
commercially prepared Microwave Popcorn product.
The kernels can overheat and ignite a brown paper
bag.
Do not put packaged Microwave Popcorn bags
directly on the oven tray. Place the package on a
microwave safe glass or ceramic plate to avoid
overheating and cracking the oven tray.
Do not exceed the Microwave Popcorn
manufacturers suggested popping time.
Longer popping does not yield more popcorn but it
can result in scorch, burn of fire. Remember, the
Popcorn bag and tray can be too hot to handle.
Remove with caution and use pot holders.
Never use your microwave oven for home canning.
The oven is not designed for proper home canning.
Improperly canned food may spoil and be dangerous
to consume.
Always use the minimum recipe cooking time. It is
better to undercook rather than overcook foods.
Undercooked foods can be returned to the oven for
more cooking. If food is overcooked, nothing can be
done.
Heat small quantities of food or foods with low
moisture carefully. These can quickly dry out, burn or
catch on fire.
Do not heat eggs in the shell. Pressure may build up
and eggs can explode.
Potatoes, apples, egg yolks and sausages are
examples of food with non-porous skins.
These must be pierced before cooking to prevent
bursting.
Do not attempt to deep fat fry in your microwave
oven.
Always allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds
ARCING
If you see arcing, touch the
STOP pad and correct the problem.
Arcing is the microwave term for sparks in the oven.
Arcing is caused by:
• Metal or foil touching the side of the oven.
• Foil not molded to food (upturned edges act like
antennas).
• Metal, such as twist-ties, poultry pins, or gold
rimmed dishes, in the microwave.
• Recycled paper towels containing small metal
pieces being used in the microwave.
26
BEFORE YOU CALL FOR SERVICE
Refer to following checklist, you may prevent an unnecessary service call.
* The oven doesn't work;
1. Check that the power cord is securely plugged in.
2. Check that the door door is firmly closed.
3. Check that the cooking time is set.
4. Check for a blown circuit fuse or tripped main circuit breaker in your house.
* Sparking in the cavity;
1. Check that utensils are metal containers or dishes with metal trim.
2. Check that metal skewers touch the interior walls.
If there is still a problem, contact the service station.
A list of these stations is included in the oven.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SERVICE THE OVEN YOURSELF!
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
* Q : I accidentally ran my microwave oven without any food in it. Is it damaged?
* A : Running the oven empty for a short time will not damage the oven.
However, it is not recommended.
* Q : Can I open the door when the oven is operating?
* A : The door can be opened anytime during the cooking operation. Then microwave energy will be instantly
switched off and the time setting will maintain until the door is closed and START is touched.
* Q : Why do I have moisture in my microwave oven after cooking?
* A : The moisture on the side of your microwave oven is normal. It is caused by steam form cooking food
heating the cool oven surface.
* Q : Dose microwave energy pass through the viewing screen in the door?
* A : No. The metal screen bounces back the energy to the oven cavity. The holes are made to
allow light to pass through. They do not let microwave energy pass through.
* Q : Why do eggs sometimes pop?
* A : When baking or poaching eggs, the yolk may pop due to steam build-up inside the yolk membrane.
To prevent this, simply pierce the yolk with a toothpick before cooking. Never cook eggs without
piercing their shells.
27
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
* Q : Why is standing time recommended after the cooking operation has been completed?
* A : Standing time is very important.
With microwave cooking, the heat is in the food, not in the oven. Many foods build up enough internal
heat to allow the cooking process to continue, even after the food is removed from the oven. Standing
time for joints of meat, large vegetables and cakes allows the inside to cook completely, without
overcooking the outside.
* Q : What does “standing time” mean?
* A : “Standing time” means that food should be removed from the oven and covered for additional time to
allow it to finish cooking. This frees the oven for other cooking.
* Q : Why does my oven not always cook as fast as the microwave cooking guide says?
* A : Check your cooking guide again, to make sure youʼve followed directions exactly ; and to see what
might cause variations in cooking time. Cooking guide times and heat settings are suggestions, to
help prevent over-cooking... the most common problem in getting used to a microwave oven.
Variations in the size, shape and weights and dimensions could require longer cooking time. Use your
own judgment along with the cooking guide suggestions to check whether the food has been properly
cooked just as you would do with a conventional cooker.
* Q : Will the microwave oven be damaged if it operates while empty?
* A : Yes. Never run it empty.
* Q :Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven? How do I get the best results?
* A : Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn following manufactures guidelines.
Do not use regular paper bags. Use the “listening test” by stopping the oven as soon as the popping
slows to a “pop” every 1 or 2 seconds. Do not repop unpopped kernels. Do not pop popcorn in glass
cookware.
