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 three
basic cooking operations:
• Cooking food
• Defrosting 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 two 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.
PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY
Failure to observe the following safety precautions may result in harmful
exposure to microwave energy.
(a) 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.
(b) 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.
(c) 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
(d) The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone other than a properly
qualified microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer.
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
5
M1733N_13N_GB.fm Page 6 Friday, March 29, 2002 4:33 PM
Safety Precautions (continued)
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:
* Immerse the scalded area in cold water for at least 10 minutes.
* Cover with a clean, dry dressing.
* Do not apply any creams, oils or lotions.
• 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.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
During cooking, you should look into the oven from time to time when food is
being heated or cooked in disposable containers of plastic, paper or other
combustible materials.
IMPORTANT
Young children should NEVER be allowed to use or play with the microwave
oven. Nor should they be left unattended near the microwave oven when it is in
use. Items of interest to children should not be stored or hidden just above the
oven.
9. 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.
10. Stand at arm’s length from the oven when opening the door.
Reason: The hot air or steam released may cause scalding.
11. Keep the inside of the oven clean.
Reason: Food particles or spattered oils stuck to oven walls or floor can
cause paint damage and reduce the efficiency of the oven.
12. You may notice a “Clicking” sound during operation(especially when the oven
is in defrosting).
Reason: This sound is normal when the electrical power output is changing.
13. When the microwave oven is operating without any load, the power will be cut
off automatically for safety. You can operate normally after letting it stand for
over 30 minutes.

How a Microwave Oven Works
Checking that Your Oven is Operating Correctly
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy
released enables food to be cooked or reheated without changing
either the form or the colour.
You can use your microwave oven to:
• Defrost
• Instant Reheat
• Cook
Cooking Principle
The following simple procedure enables you to check that your oven is GB
working correctly at all times.

Cookware Guide
GB
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 frozen 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. 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.
Food
COOKING
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.
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 normally 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.

Cooking Guide for fresh vegetables
Cooking Guide for rice and pasta
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.
Hint:
Cut the fresh vegetables into even sized pieces. The smaller they
are cut, the quicker they will cook.
Rice:
Use a large glass pyrex bowl with lid - rice doubles in volume during
cooking. 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.
Pasta:
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.
All fresh vegetables should be cooked using full microwave power (800 W).

REHEATING
REHEATING BABY FOOD
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 30-40°C.
BABY MILK:
Pour milk into a sterilised glass bottle. Reheat uncovered. Never heat a baby's
bottle with teat 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. 37°C.
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.
REMARK:
Baby food particularly needs to be checked carefully before serving to prevent
burns.
Use the power levels and times in the next table as a guide lines for reheating.
Power levels and stirring
Some foods can be reheated using 800 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
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.
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
GB
All frozen food should be defrosted using defrosting power level (180 W,
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.
Food
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 half way, 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.
