ACCESSORIES
HOW A MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS
Depending on the model that you have purchased, some or all of the accessories listed
below are included with your microwave.
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves. The microwaves cause
molecules in the food to vibrate more quickly, releasing heat. This heat disperses through
the food.
You can use your microwave oven to:
• Defrost
• Reheat
• Cook
1. * Roller ring, to be placed in the center of the oven.
Purpose: The roller ring supports the turntable.
2. * Turntable, to be placed on the roller ring with the center
fitting on to the coupler.
Purpose: The turntable serves as the main cooking
surface. It can be easily removed for cleaning.
Cooking Principle.
3. * High rack, * Low rack, to be placed on the turntable.
Purpose: The metal racks can be used to cook two dishes
at the same time. A small dish can be placed
on the turntable and a second dish on the
rack. The metal racks can be used in grill,
convection, and combination cooking.
4. * Crusty plate, to be placed on the turntable.
Purpose: The crusty plate is used to brown the bottom
of food in the microwave or grill combination
cooking modes and to keep pastry and pizza
dough crispy.
DO NOT operate the microwave oven without the roller ring and turntable.
If you need an accessory marked with a *, you can buy it from the Samsung
Contact Center (1-800-726-7864) or on-line at: (www.samsungparts.com)
1. The microwaves generated by the magnetron reflected off
cavity and are distributed uniformly as the food rotates on
the turntable. The food is thus cooked evenly.
2. The microwaves are absorbed by the food up to a depth of
about 1 inch (2.5 cm). Cooking then continues as the heat is
dissipated within the food.
3. Cooking times vary according power level setting you use
and the properties of the food:
• Quantity and density
• Water content
• Initial temperature (refrigerated or not)
As the center of the food is cooked by heat dissipation, cooking continues even
after you have taken the food out of the oven. You should use the standing times
specified in recipes and in this booklet to ensure:
• Even cooking of the food right to the center
• The same temperature throughout the food

CHOOSING THE PROPER COOKWARE
COMBINING MICROWAVE COOKING AND THE GRILL
Traditional convection cooking does require cookware. You
should, however, use only cookware that you would use in your
normal oven.
Microwave-safe containers are not usually suitable for
convection cooking. Don't use plastic containers, dishes, paper
cups, towels, etc.
If you want to select a combined cooking mode (microwave and
grill or convection), use only cookware that is microwave-safe
and oven-proof.
You can also combine microwave cooking with the grill to cook quickly and brown at the
same time.
ALWAYS use microwave-safe and oven-proof cookware. Glass or ceramic dishes
are ideal as they allow the microwaves to penetrate the food evenly. ALWAYS use
oven gloves when handling cookware in the oven, as the cookware will be very hot.
Open the door. Place the food on the rack best suited to the type of food to be cooked.
Place the rack on the turntable. Close the door.
For further details on suitable cookware and utensils, refer to the Cookware Guide
on page 24-25.

TURNING THE BEEPER OFF
You can switch the beeper off whenever you want.
For food to cook in the microwave oven, the microwaves must be able to penetrate the
food without being reflected or absorbed by the dish.
It is important to choose the correct cookware, therefore, look for cookware that is
marked microwave-safe.
The following table lists various types of cookware and indicates if and how they should
be used in a microwave oven.
1. Press the Fast Preheat button and Microwave+Grill
buttons at the same time for 1 second.
Result:
• The following indicator is displayed.
• The oven does not beep when you press a
button.
2. To switch the beeper back on, press the Fast Preheat
button and Microwave+Grill buttons again at the same
time for 1 second.
Result:
• The following indicator is displayed.
MICROWAVE-SAFE UTENSILS
• The oven beeps when you press a button.
SAFETY-LOCKING YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
Your microwave oven has a special child safety program which enables you to lock the
oven so that children or anyone unfamiliar with it cannot operate it accidentally.
1. Press the Grill button and Microwave+Conv buttons at
the same time for 1 second.
Result:
• The oven is locked. No functions can be

COOKING TECHNIQUES
Microwave energy actually penetrates food and is attracted and absorbed by the water,
fat and sugar in the food. The microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move
rapidly. The rapid movement of these molecules creates friction and the resulting heat
cooks the food.
GENERAL MICROWAVE TIPS
Dense foods, such as potatoes, take longer to heat than lighter foods. Foods with a
delicate texture should be heated at a low power level to prevent them from becoming
tough.
Foods with a non-porous skin, such as potatoes or hot dogs, should be pierced to
prevent bursting.
Putting heating oil or fat in the microwave is not recommended. Fat and oil can suddenly
boil over and cause severe burns.
Some ingredients heat faster than others. For example, the jelly in a jelly doughnut will be
hotter than the dough. Keep this in mind to avoid burns.
The altitude and the type of cookware you are using can affect the cooking time. When
trying a new recipe, use the minimum cooking time and check the food occasionally to
prevent overcooking.
Home canning in the microwave oven is not recommended because not all harmful
bacteria may be destroyed by the microwave heating process.
Although microwaves do not heat the cookware, the heat from the food is often
transferred to the cookware. Always use pot holders when removing food from the
microwave and instruct children to do the same.
Making candy in the microwave is not recommended as candy can be heated to very
high temperatures. Keep this in mind to avoid injury.
If the oven is set to cook for more than 20 minutes, it will automatically adjust to
70 percent power after 20 minutes to avoid overcooking.
Stirring
Open the microwave door and stir foods such as casseroles and vegetables occasionally
while cooking to distribute heat evenly. Food at the outside of the dish absorbs more
energy and heats more quickly, so stir from the outside towards the center. The oven will
turn off when you open the door to stir your food.
Arrangement
Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or chops, with the thicker,
meatier parts toward the outside of the turntable where they can receive more microwave
energy. To prevent overcooking, place thin or delicate parts towards the center of the
turntable.
Shielding
Shield food with narrow strips of aluminum foil to prevent overcooking. Areas that need
shielding include poultry wing-tips, the ends of poultry legs, and corners of square baking
dishes. Use only small amounts of aluminum foil. Larger amounts can damage your oven.
Turning
Turn foods over midway through the cooking cycle to expose all parts to the microwave
energy. This is especially important with large items such as roasts.
Standing
Foods cooked in the microwave build up internal heat and continue to cook for a
few minutes after the oven stops. Let foods stand to complete the cooking process,
especially foods such as roasts and whole vegetables. Roasts need this time to complete
cooking in the center without overcooking the outer areas. All liquids, such as soup or
hot chocolate, should be shaken or stirred when cooking is complete. Let liquids stand
a moment before serving. When heating baby food, stir well and test the temperature
before serving.
Adding moisture
Microwave energy is attracted to water molecules. Food that is uneven in moisture
content should be covered or allowed to stand so that the heat disperses evenly. Add a
small amount of water to dry food to help it cook.
Venting
After covering a dish with plastic wrap, vent the plastic wrap by turning back one corner
to let excess steam escape.

REHEATING BABY FOOD
Your microwave oven will reheat food in a fraction of the time that conventional ovens
normally take.
Use the power levels and reheating times in the following chart as a guide. The times in
the chart consider liquids with a room temperature of about 65-68 °F or a chilled food
with a temperature of about 41-45 °F.
BABY FOOD: Empty into a deep ceramic plate. Cover with plastic lid. Stir well
after reheating! Let stand for 2-3 minutes before serving. Stir again and check the
temperature. Recommended serving temperature: between 86-104 °F.
BABY MILK: Pour milk into a sterilised glass bottle. Reheat uncovered. Never heat a
baby’s bottle with nipple on, as the bottle may explode if overheated. Shake well before
standing time and again before serving ! Always carefully check the temperature of baby
milk or food before giving it to the baby. Recommended serving temperature: ca. 99 °F.
Arranging and covering
Avoid reheating large items such as joint of meat - they tend to overcook and dry out
before the center is piping hot. Reheating small pieces will be more successful.
Power levels and stirring
Some foods can be reheated using 90 % power while others should be reheated using
60 %, 50 %, or even 30 %.
Check the tables for guidance.
In general, it is better to reheat food using a lower power level, if the food is delicate, in
large quantities, or if it is likely to heat up very quickly (mince pies, for example).
Stir well or turn food over during reheating for best results. When possible, stir again
before serving.
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby foods. To prevent eruptive boiling of
liquids and possible scalding, stir, before, during, and after heating. Keep them in the
microwave oven during standing time. We recommend putting a plastic spoon or glass
stick into the liquids. Avoid overheating (and therefore spoiling) the food.
It is preferable to underestimate cooking time and add extra heating time, if necessary.
Heating and standing times
When reheating food for the first time, it is helpful to make a note of the time taken for
future reference.
Always make sure that the reheated food is piping hot throughout.
Allow food to stand for a short time after reheating to let the temperature even out.
The recommended standing time after reheating is 2-4 minutes, unless another time is
recommended in the chart.
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby food. See also the chapter with the
safety precautions.
REMARK:
Baby food in particular needs to be checked carefully before serving to prevent burns.
Use the power levels and times in the table below as guides for reheating.
Reheating Liquids and Food
Use the power levels and times in this table as guidelines for reheating.
Food
Drinks (Coffee,
Tea and Water)
Soup (Chilled)
REHEATING LIQUIDS
Always allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds 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.

DEFROSTING
Microwaves are an excellent way of defrosting frozen food. Microwaves gently defrost
frozen food in a short period of time. This can be of great advantage, if unexpected
guests suddenly show up.
Poultry
Chicken Pieces
Whole Chicken
Put the frozen food on a dish without cover. Turn over half way, drain off any liquid, and,
if you are defrosting chicken, remove any giblets as soon as possible. Check the food
occasionally to make sure that it does not feel warm.
If smaller and thinner parts of the frozen food start to warm up, shield the parts by
wrapping small strips of aluminium foil around them during defrosting.
Should poultry start to warm up on the outer surface, stop thawing and allow it to
stand for 20 minutes before continuing. Let fish, meat, and poultry stand to complete
defrosting. The standing time for complete defrosting will vary depending on the quantity
defrosted. Please refer to the table below.
Hint:
Thin food defrosts better than thick food and smaller quantities need less
time than larger quantities.
To defrost frozen food with a temperature of about -5 to -4 °F, use the following table as
a guide.

GRILL
Grill Guide for fresh food
The grill-heating element is located underneath the ceiling of the cavity. It operates while
the door is closed and the turntable is rotating. The turntable’s rotation makes the food
brown more evenly. Preheating the grill for 3-5 minutes will make the food brown more
quickly.
Preheat the grill with the grill-function for 2-3 minutes.
Use the power levels and times in this table as guides for grilling.
Use oven gloves when taking the food out of the microwave.
Cookware for grilling:
Should be flameproof and may include metal. Do not use any type of plastic cookware,
as it can melt.
Food suitable for grilling:
Chops, sausages, steaks, hamburgers, bacon and gammon rashers, thin fish portions,
sandwiches, and all kinds of toast with toppings.
Important remark:
Whenever you use the grill only mode, please remember that food must be placed on the
high rack, you are instructed otherwise.
MICROWAVE + GRILL
This cooking mode combines the radiant heat that is coming from the grill with the speed
of microwave cooking. It operates only while the door is closed and the turntable is
rotating. Due to the rotation of the turntable, the food browns evenly. The combination
mode is available with this model: 30 % + Grill.
Cookware for cooking with microwave + grill
Please use cookware that microwaves can pass through. Cookware should be
flameproof. Do not use metal cookware with combination mode. Do not use any type of
plastic cookware, as it can melt.
Food suitable for microwave + grill cooking:
Food suitable for combination mode cooking include all kinds of cooked food which
need reheating and browning (e.g. baked pasta), as well as foods which require a short
cooking time to brown the top of the food. Also, this mode can be used for thick food
portions that benefit from a browned and crispy top (e.g. chicken pieces, turning them
over half way through cooking). Please refer to the grill table for further details.
Important remark:
Whenever you use the combination mode (microwave + grill), the food should be placed
on the high rack, you are instructed otherwise. Please refer to the instructions in the

Cooking with convection is the traditional and well-known method of cooking food in a
traditional oven with hot air.
The heating element and the fan position is at the back-wall, so that the hot air circulates.
This mode is supported by the top heating element.
Cookware for convection cooking:
All conventional ovenproof cookware, baking tins and sheets – anything you would
normally use in a traditional convection oven – can be used.
Food suitable for convection cooking:
All biscuits, individual scones, rolls and cakes should be cooked using this mode as well
as rich fruit cakes, choux pastry, and soufflés.
MICROWAVE + CONVECTION
This mode combines microwave energy with the hot air. It reduces cooking time while
giving food a brown and crispy surface.

TIPS AND TRICKS
MELTING BUTTER
Put about 3 tablespoons butter into a small deep glass dish. Cover with plastic lid.
Heat for 30-40 seconds using 90 %, until butter is melted.
Becoming familiar with a new appliance always takes a little time. If you have any of
the problems listed below, try the solutions given. They may save you the time and
inconvenience of an unnecessary service call.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Check these solutions if you have a problem with your microwave:
The display and/or the oven is not working.
Make sure the plug is properly connected to a grounded outlet. If the wall outlet is
controlled by a wall switch, make sure the wall switch is turned on.
Remove the plug from the outlet, wait ten seconds, and plug it in again.
Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuses.
Plug a different appliance into the outlet. If the other appliance doesn’t work, call a
qualified electrician to repair the wall outlet. Plug the oven into a different outlet.
MELTING CRYSTALLIZED HONEY
Put ¾ oz (20 g) crystallized honey into a small deep glass dish.
Heat for 20-30 seconds using 30 %, until honey is melted.
MELTING GELATINE
Lay dry gelatine sheets ⅓ oz (10 g) for 5 minutes in cold water.
Put drained gelatine into a small glass pyrex bowl.
Heat for 1 minute using 30 %. Stir after melting.
COOKING GLAZE/ICING (FOR CAKE AND GATEAUX)
Mix instant glaze (approximately 3 teaspoons) with 2⅔ tablespoons (40 g) sugar and
1 cup (250 ml) cold water. Cook uncovered in a glass pyrex bowl for 3½ to 4½ minutes
using 90 %, until glaze/icing is transparent. Stir twice during cooking.
COOKING JAM
Put 21 oz of fruit (600 g or about 2½ cups) (for example mixed berries) in a suitable sized
glass pyrex bowl with lid. Add 1½ cups (300 g) preserving sugar and stir well.
Cook covered for 10-12 minutes using 90 %.
Stir several times during cooking. Empty directly into small jam glasses with twist-off lids.
Let stand with the lid on for 5 minutes.
COOKING PUDDING
Mix the pudding mix with milk following the manufacturer's instructions. Add sugar if
instructed. Stir well. Use a suitable sized glass pyrex bowl with lid. Cook covered for 6½
to 7½ minutes using 90 %.
Stir several times well during cooking.
BROWNING ALMOND SLICES
Spread about 1 oz (30 g) of sliced almonds evenly on a medium sized ceramic plate.
Stir several times during browning for 3½ to 4½ minutes using 60 %.
Let it stand for 2-3 minutes in the oven. Use oven gloves when taking out!
The display is working, but the power won’t come on
Make sure the door is closed securely.
Check if any packaging material or anything else is stuck in the door seal.
Check if the door is damaged.

Put about a half cup (¼ lbs) chocolate into a small deep glass dish.
Heat for 3-5 minutes, using 50 % until chocolate is melted.
Stir once or twice during melting. Use oven gloves while taking out!
Cooks food too slowly.
Make sure the oven has its own 20 amp circuit line. Operating another appliance on the
same circuit can cause a voltage drop. If necessary, move the oven to its own circuit.
