HOW A MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS
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
• Reheat
• Cook
Cooking principle.
x
1. The microwaves generated by the magnetron reflected at
cavity and are distributed uniformly as the food rotates on
the turntable. The food is thus cooked evenly.
• Never use this Pro Steamer with a different product or model.
It may cause a fire or fatal damage to the product.
• Do not use the Pro Steamer without water or food inside.
When you use this Pro Steamer, pour at least 500 ml of water before use. If
the amount of water is less than 500 ml, it may cause incomplete cooking, or
may cause a fire or fatal damage to the product.
• Caution must be taken when removing the container from inside the Pro
Steamer after cooking, as it will be very hot.
• Make sure you install the cover onto the Pro Steamer so that it fits into the
Steam plate / Crusty plate.
The eggs or the chestnuts would be explode without setting the steam cover
and steam plate as instructed on the Instruction book.
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 to the container used and the
properties of the food:
• Quantity and density
• Water content
• Initial temperature (refrigerated or not)
As the centre of the food is cooked by heat dissipation, cooking continues even
when you have taken the food out of the oven. Standing times specified in recipes
and in this booklet must therefore be respected to ensure:
• Even cooking of the food right to the centre
• The same temperature throughout the 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.
Food 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).
05 COOKWARE GUIDE
• Oven-to-tableware
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.
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
REHEATING BABY FOOD
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.
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.
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
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 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.
Reheating Liquids and Food
Use the power levels and times in this table as a guide lines 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.
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.
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.
For defrosting of frozen food with a temperature of about -18 to -20 °C, 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 guide lines for grilling.
Use oven gloves when taking out.
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 the grill only mode is used, please remember that food must be placed on the
high rack, unless another instruction is recommended.
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
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 the combination mode (microwave + grill) is used, the food should be placed
on the high rack, unless another instruction is recommended. Please refer to the
instructions in the following chart.
The food must be turned over, if it is to be browned on both sides.

normally use in a traditional convection oven – can be used.
Food suitable for convection cooking:
All biscuits, individual scones, rolls and cakes should be made by this mode as well as
rich fruit cakes, choux pastry and soufflés.
MICROWAVE + CONVECTION
This mode combines the microwave energy with the hot air and is therefore reducing the
cooking time while giving the food a brown and crispy surface.
Cooking with convection is the traditional and well known method of cooking food in an
oven with hot air circulated by a fan on the back-wall.
Cookware for cooking with microwaves + convection:
Should be able to let the microwaves pass through. Should be ovenproof (like glass,
pottery or china without metal trims); similar to the cookware described under Microwave
+ Grill.
Food suitable for Microwave + Convection cooking:
All kinds of meats and poultry as well as casseroles and gratin dishes, sponge cakes and
light fruit cakes, pies and crumbles, roast vegetables, scones and breads.
