support a maximum weight of
17.5 lb (8 kg). These accessories may
be damaged if over strained.
Do not lean, sit or place heavy
items on the open oven door. The
machine may be damaged.
Never place the hot glass tray
directly on a cold surface, such as
a tiled or granite countertop. The glass
tray may crack.
Do not use a steam cleaner to
clean this appliance. The steam
could penetrate live components and
permanently damage the oven or cause
injury.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Microwave function
Do not attempt to operate this oven
with the door open since open-door
operation can result in harmful
exposure to microwave energy. It is
important not to damage or tamper
with the safety interlocks.
Items not suitable for use when
using the microwave function or
any combination functions: metal,
aluminum foil, cutlery, dishware with
metal decoration, crystal glass
containing lead, bowls with a knurled
rim, non-temperature safe dishware,
wooden dishware, metal clips, wire
twist ties, food containers with metal
coverings or residues.
Danger of machine damage and fire.
The provided combi rack is specially
designed for use in this oven.
Do not place any object between the
oven front and the door or allow soil
or cleaner residue to accumulate on
sealing surfaces.
Do not leave the appliance
unattended when heating food in
disposable, e.g. plastic, paper or other
flammable materials.
See "Selecting cookware".
Do not operate the oven if it is
damaged. It is particularly important
that the oven door closes properly

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Before serving food allow a
sufficient standing time. Always
check the temperature of the food itself
after taking it out of the microwave. Do
not judge by the plate temperature. The
heat is created in the food, the dishes
may stay cool to the touch.
Always check the temperature
before serving heated baby food.
Use a food thermometer to
measure the foods temperature. Do
not use thermometers containing
mercury or liquids, they are not suitable
for high temperatures and break easily.
Never cook or reheat food and
liquids in sealed containers or
bottles. Remove the nipple or lid before
heating in the microwave. Built-up
pressure may cause them to burst.
Danger of injuries.
The combi rack will get hot when
used in the microwave. Danger of
burns.
8
When heating liquids, the provided
boiling wand should be placed into
the container.
When heating liquids, milk, sauces,
etc., in the oven without the boiling
wand, the boiling point of the liquid may
be reached without the production of
bubbles. The liquid will not boil evenly.
This "boiling delay" can cause a sudden
build up of steam bubbles, when the
container is removed from the oven or
shaken. This can lead to the liquid
boiling over suddenly and explosively.
Danger of burning!
The built-up pressure may force the
oven door open. This could result in
injury or damage. The boiling wand
ensures that the liquid boils evenly and
that steam bubbles form at an early
stage.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Eggs must only be cooked in their
shells in the microwave oven in a
specially designed egg-boiling device.
Hard-boiled eggs should not be
reheated in the microwave oven. The
eggs may burst, even once they have
been removed from the oven.
Eggs can be cooked without their
shells in the microwave oven only if
the yolk membrane has been
punctured first. The pressure could
otherwise cause the egg yolk to
explode. Danger of injuries.
Food with a thick skin or peel, such
as tomatoes, sausages and
potatoes should be pierced in several
places before cooking to allow steam to
vent and prevent the food from
bursting.
Do not use dishware with hollow
handles or lid knobs. Moisture can
get into the hollow parts. (The hollow
parts of some dishware can be vented).
Danger of built-up pressure and the
explosion of the hollow parts may
cause injuries.
Solo functions:
Convection Bake, Auto Roast, Broil,
Convection Broil
Caution! Danger of burns!
When using solo functions the oven
interior gets very hot.
Do not allow children to touch or
play in, on or near the oven when it
is in operation. The oven gets hot at the
oven door glass, the vapor vent, the
handle and the operating controls.
Danger of burns.
Use pot holders when working with
a hot appliance. Especially the
upper heating element gets extremely
hot when using the functions broil and
convection broil. Danger of burning!
Allow the heating element to cool
before attempting to lower it to
clean the oven. Danger of burns.
Do not use force to lower the upper
heating element. It may get
damaged.

Selecting cookware
Microwaves:
Material and shape
The material and shape of containers
used affect cooking results and times.
Circular and oval containers work best.
The food will heat more evenly than in a
square container.
Metal
,Do not use metal containers,
– are reflected by metal,
aluminum foil, cutlery or dishes with
metal decor during any microwave
function including all combination
functions.
The metal reflects the microwaves
which can damage the microwave
oven.
– pass through glass and chinaware,
– are absorbed by the food.
22
Selecting cookware
Exceptions:
Glassware
– Pre-cooked meals in aluminum foil
containers can be defrosted and
reheated in the microwave oven.
Important: Remove the lid before
heating the food.
The food is heated only from above.
To heat the food evenly place it in a
container suitable for microwaving.
Heat-resistant glass or ceramic
glassware are ideal for use in the
microwave oven.
– For even defrosting and to avoid
overcooking unevenly shaped cuts of
meat, poultry or fish, small pieces of
aluminum foil may be used to mask
wing-tips or other thin parts for the
last few minutes of the process.
Make sure that the aluminum foil is
at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) from the
oven walls at all times. It must not
touch the walls.
– Metal meat skewers or clamps
should only be used if they are small
in comparison to the size of the
meat.
– The enclosed combi rack is suitable
for microwaving. Do not set it on the
oven floor.
Crystal contains lead and is
unsuitable.
Porcelain (china)
Porcelain (china) is suitable for use in
the microwave oven.
Do not use porcelain with gold or
silver edging or items with hollow
knobs or handles, insufficient
ventilation may cause damage.
Earthenware
Decorated earthenware is only suitable
if the decoration is beneath the glaze.
Earthenware can get very hot and
may crack.
Glazes and colors
Some glazes and colors contain
metallic substances. They are not
suitable for the microwave.
The combi rack gets hot. Let it cool
before touching or use pot holders
to avoid injury.
23
Selecting cookware
Plastics
Use plastic dishes only for
Microwave - Solo. They must be heat
resistant up to 230°F (110°C)
otherwise the plastic may melt into
the food.
Special plasticware, designed for use
in microwave ovens is available in retail
outlets.
Plastic boiling bags can be used for
cooking and reheating.
They should be pierced beforehand
so that steam can escape. This
prevents a build-up of pressure and
reduces the risk of the bag bursting.
Roasting bags
These bags can be used in the
microwave oven. Please follow the
manufacturers’ instructions.
Wood
Wood containers are not suitable.
The water from the wood evaporates
during the cooking process causing it
to dry out and crack.
Disposable containers
Only those plastic disposable
containers specified under "Plastics"
are suitable for use in the microwave
oven.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when reheating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of
plastic, paper or other flammable
materials.
Disposable containers are not always
microwave safe.
24
Selecting cookware
Covering the food
Use a cover only during the
Microwave-Solo function. Plastics
are only heat-resistant up to 230°F
(110°C). Higher temperatures
(Broiling, Convection Bake, etc.) can
cause the cover to melt into the
food.
The cover should not completely
seal the container. This may prevent
steam from escaping causing the
cover to melt.
A cover:
– prevents most of the steam from
escaping, especially when cooking
foods which needs longer to cook,
such as potatoes.
– shortens and evens out the cooking
process.
– prevents the food from drying out.
– prevents any loss of aroma.
– prevents soiling of the oven interior.
^ Cover the food with a glass or plastic
lid suitable for microwave ovens.
They are available in retail stores.
Plastic wrap suitable for microwaving
can also be used.
Do not heat food in closed
containers e.g. glass baby food
containers. Vent the container before
heating.
Do not use a lid or cover if:
– cooking food in which a crisp finish is
desired e.g. breaded chicken, garlic
bread, etc.
– a combination function is selected.

Microwave
Microwave cooking offers speed,
convenience and nutritional benefits
when food does not require browning or
crisping.
Microwave Solo
There are seven microwave power
levels available.
MICROWAVE
The moisture content of food will affect
the speed at which it is cooked.
Heat is produced directly in the food,
therefore:
– food can generally be cooked
without adding much liquid or
cooking oil.
– defrosting, reheating and cooking in
a microwave oven is quicker than
using traditional oven methods.
Adjust power level

Microwave tips
– Food with a thick skin or peel, such
as potatoes and sausage, should be
pierced several times before cooking
to allow steam to vent and prevent
the food from bursting.
Boil eggs in shell only in a specially
designed microwave egg boiling
device, otherwise the eggs may
burst even once taken from the
oven.
– Eggs can be cooked without their
shells in the microwave oven only if
the yolk has been punctured. The
pressure could otherwise cause the
egg yolk to explode.
– Do not cover the food when using
combination functions.
– Add a little water when cooking
vegetables that are not fresh in the
microwave. Fresh vegetables cook
quicker.
– Food from the fridge needs a longer
cooking time than food at room
temperature.
Microwave
Defrosting
Defrosting tips
The function Microwave defrosts food
gently and fast. The following
microwave power levels are
recommended for defrosting:
– When defrosting larger amounts of
food, i.e. 4 lbs (2 kg) of fish, the
glass tray can be used as a
defrosting container on the 1st runner
level from the bottom.
– 2 bars for defrosting delicate food
such as heavy cream, butter,
cheese, etc.
– 4 bars for defrosting all other foods.
– After defrosting allow the food to
stand at room temperature long
enough to distribute the heat evenly
throughout the food.
^ Take the frozen food from the
packaging and put it in a microwave
safe container.
^ Set the cookware onto the middle of
the glass tray on the 1st level runner
from the bottom.
^ Select a cooking time and a power
level.
^ Press "Start".
41
Microwave
Reheating
Reheating tips
The microwave is useful for reheating
food.
– Use a lid or cover for reheating food,
except when a "drier" finish is
needed, e.g. breaded foods.
To reheat select a power level of:
– full bar for drinks,
– 10 to 12 bars for food,
– Remove the lid from glass containers
e.g. baby food jars.
– 8 bars for baby food.
– Remove the lid or nipple from baby
bottles before heating.
^ Place the food in the microwave on
the 1st level runner from the bottom.
– To heat a liquid, insert the boiling
wand into the container.
^ Select a cooking time and a power
level.
^ Press "Start".
The time required depends on the food,
its initial temperature and the amount to
be heated.
^ Stir the food halfway through
reheating.
After reheating
Be careful when removing a dish
from the oven, it may be hot.
^ After reheating food, especially food
for babies and small children, stir the
food or shake the container and
check that the temperature does not
pose any danger.
42
Take care that the baby food is at a
safe temperature when served. Heat
baby food only for 30 seconds at a
time then check temperature.
Do not reheat hard boiled eggs,
even without the shell, in the
microwave oven. The eggs can
burst.
Microwave
Defrost / Heat and Cook
Combination Broil

Roast
Auto Roast
Do not preheat the oven.
Exception: When cooking roast
sirloin or tenderloins using Auto
Roast preheat the oven to the
temperature recommended in the
recipe.
Default temperature . . . . 325°F (160°C)
This function allows you to brown meat
and poultry.
Auto Roast heats the oven to a high
temperature to sear the meat, retaining
moisture and tenderness. The oven
temperature then automatically returns
to the preselected setting.
Suitable cookware:
Casserole dish, combi rack with glass
tray, earthen cookware. The cookware
must have heat-resistant handles.
In this function cooking times and delay
start times can be programmed.
^ Insert the glass tray with the combi
rack on the 1st runner level.
^ If roasting in cookware set it directly
on the glass tray, otherwise place
food directly on the combi rack.
The program will start automatically.
^ Select delay start if desired. Confirm
with "OK".
^ Adjust the temperature if necessary.
The roasting time depends on the type,
size and thickness of the meat.

Using the roast probe
The oven comes equipped with a roast
probe.
The roast probe allows you to monitor
the cooking temperature by measuring
the core temperature of the meat.
When the desired temperature is
reached the oven will automatically turn
off.
The roast probe can be used during:
– All Roast functions
– Microwave
(Solo and Combination functions)
Using the roast probe
^ Prepare the meat.
^ Plug the roast probe into the socket
until it clicks (see arrow).
^ Close the appliance door.
^ Select the desired function.
A delayed start is possible if desired.
(Not possible for Solo Microwave.)
The display shows the oven default
temperature and the default core
temperature.
^ If desired adjust the default
temperature and/or power level.
^ Insert the roast probe half way into
the food so that the tip reaches the
center of the thickest part of the
meat.
^ Place the food in the oven.
^ If desired adjust the default core
temperature by pressing "Probe".
Enter the new core temperature using
the keypad.
^ Select "OK".
^ Select "Start" if using a microwave
function.
The rising core temperature can be
monitored in the display during the
cooking program.
The cooking time is calculated
automatically.
49
Using the roast probe
Once the selected core temperature is
reached:
– the display shows "Ready".
– a signal will sound.
– the oven turns off automatically.
– the cooling fan stays on.
^ After roasting, cover the meat for
about 10 minutes with aluminum foil.
During this time the core temperature
will rise by 5 - 10°.
Insert the roast probe into another part
and repeat the cooking process if:
– the meat is not cooked to your
desire. Raise the core temperature.
– the roast probe tip did not reach the
center of the meat (large cuts of
meat).
Roast probe tips
– The time it takes to cook meat when
using the roast probe is similar to
that of cooking by time.
– When using broiling bags, insert the
roast probe through the foil into the
meat core.
– Fat and bones may impair the
temperature measuring and can
cause the oven to turn off
prematurely. Therefore the tip should
not touch bones or be inserted into
fatty areas of the meat.
– Select a higher core temperature for
meat with a high fat content.
– Meat can be roasted in a container
or on the rack with the glass tray.

Cleaning and Care
Oven Interior
Let the oven cool before cleaning
the interior, the inside door and the
gasket. Danger of burns!
Clean the oven after every use,
accumulated soiling makes cleaning
difficult and could damage the
appliance.
Stainless steel surfaces
The interior is made of stainless steel.
Due to the high temperatures radiated
the stainless steel may darken. This will
not affect the performance of the oven.
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using a non-abrasive stainless steel
cleaner.
Cleaning tips
Never use abrasive cleaners,
scouring pads or steel wool on any
part of the oven. They will damage
the surfaces.
Only use caustic (oven)cleaners
when the oven is cool, even if the
manufacturer states otherwise. In
any other case follow the
manufacturers instructions.
Do not spray oven cleaners into any
openings
Do not use the Microwave function if
the door or gasket is damaged. Call
Technical Service.
^ Clean the interior, the inside of the
door and gasket with a sponge and a
solution of warm water and non
abrasive liquid detergent.
Avoid using too much water, this
could penetrate the openings.
^ Dry with a soft cloth.
^ Check the door and gasket at regular
intervals for any sign of damage.
54
Juices and cake mixtures
Soiling such as spilled juices and cake
mixtures are best removed while the
oven or tray is still warm. Spilled fruit
juices may cause lasting discoloration
of the surfaces but will not affect the
performance of the oven.
Hard to clean soiling
Place a heat-resistant cup of water in
the oven and bring it to a boil. The
steam will condensate on the interior
walls and soak the soiling, making it
easier to remove.
Neutralizing odors
Place a heat resistant cup of water and
lemon juice in the oven and simmer for
a few minutes.
Cleaning and Care
Interior ceiling
Appliance front
To clean the interior ceiling, the upper
heating element can be lowered.
^ All external surfaces and controls can
be cleaned with warm water and
liquid dish soap applied with a
sponge.
Wait for the upper heating element
to cool before lowering it. Danger of
burns.
^ Dry with a soft cloth.
Glass surfaces
Glass surfaces are not scratch proof.
Never use abrasive cleaners,
scouring pads, steel wool or oven
cleaners on glass surfaces. They will
cause damage.
Do not use a shielded scraper blade
to clean the door glass surface.
^ Unscrew the nut.
Stainless steel
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using a non-abrasive stainless steel
cleaner.
To help prevent resoiling, a conditioner
for stainless steel can also be used.
Apply sparingly with even pressure.
^ Lower the upper heating element.
Do not use force! It may cause
damage.
^ After cleaning move the upper
heating element back to its original
position. Tighten the nut.
55
Cleaning and Care
Oven accessories
Combi rack
The rack should be washed and dried
after each use. It is easier to clean if it
is soaked in a solution of hot water and
liquid dish soap. Remove stubborn
soils with a stainless steel cleaner.
Glass tray
Clean the glass tray in the dishwasher
or wash it by hand.
Do not use abrasive cleaning agents,
they will damage the surface.
Boiling wand
The boiling wand can be washed in the
dishwasher or by hand.

58
Frequently asked questions
Why is there uneven browning?
Possible fault
Fix
Oven temperature too high.
Use a lower cooking temperature.
Shiny or thin pans were used.
See "Selecting cookware".
Why does the food cool so fast when heated or cooked with Microwave?
In the microwave oven, food begins to cook from the outside first, the inside of
the food relies on the transfer of heat. If food is cooked at a high power level it is
possible that the heat may not have reached the center of the food. At the
temperature equalization time the food will become hot in the inside and warm on
the outside. When heating a meal, select a lower power level and a longer
cooking time.
Why are there strange noises when the microwave oven is being used?
Possible fault
Fix
Sparks are created by the use of
dishware with a metallic finish.
See "Selecting cookware".
The food is covered with aluminum foil. Remove the aluminum foil.
