Using this Instruction Booklet
Safety Precautions
You have just purchased a SAMSUNG microwave oven. Your Owner’s
Instructions contain much valuable information on cooking with your
microwave oven:
• Safety precautions
• Suitable accessories and cookware
• Useful cooking tips
Inside the cover you will find a quick look-up guide explaining four
basic cooking operations:
• Cooking food
• Auto Power Defrosting of food
• Grilling food
• Adding extra cooking time
At the front of the booklet you will find illustrations of the oven, and
more importantly the control panel, so that you can find the buttons
more easily.
The step-by-step procedures use three different symbols.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS.
READ CAREFULLY AND KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
Before cooking food or liquids in your microwave oven, please check
that the following safety precautions are taken.
☛
✉
Important
Note
1. DO NOT use any metallic cookware in the microwave oven:
• Metallic containers
• Dinnerware with gold or silver trimmings
• Skewers, forks, etc.
Reason:
Electric arcing or sparking may occur and may damage the oven.
2. DO NOT heat:
• Airtight or vacuum-sealed bottles, jars, containers Ex) Baby food jars
• Airtight food. Ex) Eggs, nuts in shells, tomatoes
Reason: The increase in pressure may cause them to explode.
Tip:
Remove lids and pierce skins, bags, etc.
3. DO NOT operate the microwave oven when it is empty.
Reason: The oven walls may be damaged.
Tip:
Leave a glass of water inside the oven at all times.
The water will absorb the microwaves if you accidentally set the oven
going when it is empty.
4. DO NOT cover the rear ventilation slots with cloths or paper.
Reason: The cloths or paper may catch fire as hot air is evacuated from the
oven.
5. ALWAYS use oven gloves when removing a dish from the oven.
Reason: Some dishes absorb microwaves and heat is always transferred from
the food to the dish.The dishes are therefore hot.
6. DO NOT touch heating elements or interior oven walls.
Reason: These walls may be hot enough to burn even after cooking has
finished, even though they do not appear to be so. Do not allow
inflammable materials to come into contact with any interior area of the
oven. Let the oven cool down first.
7. To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
• Do not store flammable materials in the oven
• Remove wire twist ties from paper or plastic bags
• Do not use your microwave oven to dry newspapers If smoke is observed,
keep the oven door closed and switch off or disconnect the oven from the
power supply
8. Take particular care when heating liquids and baby foods.
• ALWAYS allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has been
switched off so that the temperature can equalize.
• Stir during heating, if necessary, and ALWAYS stir after heating.
• Take care when handling the container after heating. You may burn yourself if
the container is too hot.
• A risk of delayed eruptive boiling exists.
• To prevent delayed boiling and possible scalding, you should put a plastic
spoon or glass stick into the beverages and stir before, during and after
heating.
Reason: During the heating of liquids the boiling point can be delayed; this
means that eruptive boiling can start after the container is removed
from the oven. You may scald yourself.
• In the event of scalding, follow these FIRST AID instructions:
Turn
PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY
Failure to observe the following safety precautions may result in harmful exposure to
microwave energy.
1. Under no circumstances should any attempt be made to operate the oven with
the door open or to tamper with the safety interlocks (door latches) or to insert
anything into the safety interlock holes.
2. Do not place any object between the oven door and front face or allow food or
cleaner residues to accumulate on sealing surfaces. Ensure that the door and door
sealing surfaces are kept clean by wiping after use first with a damp cloth and then
with a soft dry cloth.
3. Do not operate the oven if it is damaged until it has been repaired by a qualified
microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer. It is particularly
important that the oven door closes properly and that there is no damage to the:
(1) Door, door seals and sealing surfaces
(2) Door hinges (broken or loose)
(3) Power cable
4. The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone other than a properly
qualified microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer.

NEVER fill the container to the top and choose a container that is wider at the
top than at the bottom to prevent the liquid from boiling over. Bottles with
narrow necks may also explode if overheated.
• ALWAYS check the temperature of baby food or milk before giving it to the
baby.
• NEVER heat a baby’s bottle with the teat on, as the bottle may explode if
overheated.
Be careful not to damage the power cable.
• Do not immerse the power cable or plug in water and keep the power cable
away from heated surfaces.
• Do not operate this appliance if it has a damaged power cable or plug.
Stand at arm’s length from the oven when opening the door.

This crusty plate allows you to brown food not only on the top with the
grill, but also the bottom of the food turns crispy and brown due to the
high temperature of the crusty plate. Several items which you can
prepare on the crusty plate can be found in the chart (see next page).
The crusty plate can also be used for bacon, eggs, sausages, etc.

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 when choosing the cookware. If the
cookware is marked microwave-safe, you do not need to worry.
The following table lists various types of cookware and indicates
whether and how they should be used in a microwave oven.

Cooking Guide
MICROWAVES
Cooking Guide for fresh vegetables
Microwave energy actually penetrates food, attracted and absorbed by its water, fat
and sugar content.
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.
Use a suitable glass pyrex bowl with lid. Add 30-45 ml cold water (2-3 tbsp.) for every
250 g unless another water quantity is recommended - see table. Cook covered for the
minimum time - see table. Continue cooking to get the result you prefer. Stir once
during and once after cooking. Add salt, herbs or butter after cooking. Cover during a
standing time of 3 minutes.
COOKING
Hint:
Cookware for microwave cooking:
Cookware must allow microwave energy to pass through it for maximum efficiency.
Microwaves are reflected by metal, such as stainless steel, aluminium and copper, but
they can penetrate through ceramic, glass, porcelain and plastic as well as paper and
wood. So food must never be cooked in metal containers.
Cut the fresh vegetables into even sized pieces. The smaller they are
cut, the quicker they will cook.
All fresh vegetables should be cooked using full microwave power (900 W).
Food
Foods suitable for microwave cooking:
Many kinds of food are suitable for microwave cooking, including fresh or frozen vegetables, fruit, pasta, rice, grains, beans, fish, and meat. Sauces, custard, soups,
steamed puddings, preserves, and chutneys can also be cooked in a microwave oven.
Generally speaking, microwave cooking is ideal for any food that would normal-ly be
prepared on a hob. Melting butter or chocolate, for example (see the chapter with tips,
techniques and hints).
Covering during cooking
To cover the food during cooking is very important, as the evaporated water rises as
steam and contributes to cooking process. Food can be covered in different ways: e.g.
with a ceramic plate, plastic cover or microwave suitable cling film.
Standing times
After cooking is over food the standing time is important to allow the temperature to
even out within the food.

REHEATING
Use a suitable glass pyrex bowl with lid. Cook covered for the minimum time - see
table. Continue cooking to get the result you prefer. Stir twice during cooking and once
after cooking. Add salt, herbs or butter after cooking. Cover during standing time.
Your microwave oven will reheat food in a fraction of the time that conventional ovens
hobs 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 +18 to +20°C or a chilled
food with a temperature of about +5 to +7°C.

Arranging and covering
Avoid reheating large items such as joint of meat - they tend to overcook and dry out
before the centre is piping hot. Reheating small pieces will be more successful.
Power levels and stirring
Some foods can be reheated using 900 W power while others should be reheated
using 600 W, 450 W or even 300 W.
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
Cooking Guide for rice and pasta
Rice :
Pasta :
Use a large glass pyrex bowl with lid - rice doubles in volume during
cook ing. Cook covered. After the cooking time is over, stir before
standing time and salt or add herbs and butter.
Remark: the rice may not have absorbed all water after the cooking
time is finished.
Use a large glass pyrex bowl. Add boiling water, a pinch of salt and stir
well. Cook uncovered. Stir occasionally during and after cooking. Cover
during standing time and drain thoroughly afterwards.
Food
Portion Power Time
(min.)
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.

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.
Frozen poultry must be thoroughly thawed before cooking. Remove any metal ties and
take it out of any wrapping to allow thawed liquid to drain away.
Put the frozen food on a dish without cover. Turn over halfway, drain off any liquid and
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, they can be shield by
wrapping very 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.
Leave the fish, meat and poultry to stand in order to complete defrosting. The standing
time for complete defrosting will vary depending on the quantity defrosted. Please refer
to the table below.
Hint:
Flat food defrosts better than thick and smaller quantities need less
time than bigger ones. Remember this hint while freezing and
defrosting food.

GRILL
Grill Guide for frozen 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 4 minutes will make the food brown
more quickly.
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.
Use the power levels and times in this table as guide lines for grilling.

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. Three combination modes are available with this model: 600 W + Grill, 450 W + Grill and 300 W +
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 plas-tic
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 the combination mode (microwave + grill) is used, make sure that the grill
heating element is under the ceiling in the horizontal position and not on the back-wall
in the vertical position. The food should be placed on the high rack, unless another
instruction is recommended. Otherwise it has to be placed directly on the turntable.
Please refer to the instructions in the following chart.
The food must be turned over, if it is to be browned on both sides.
