Precautions
Precautions to avoid possible exposure to excessive microwave energy.
When heating liquids, e.g. soups, sauces and beverages in your microwave
oven, delayed eruptive boiling can occur without evidence of bubbling. This
could result in a sudden boil over of the hot liquid. To prevent this possibility
the following steps should be taken:
You cannot operate your oven with the door open due to the safety interlocks
built into the door mechanism. These safety interlocks automatically switch off
any cooking activity when the door is opened; which in the case of a
microwave oven could result in harmful exposure to microwave energy.
It is important not to tamper with the safety interlocks.
1 Avoid using straight sided containers with narrow necks.
Do not place any object between the oven front face and the door or allow
food or cleaner residue to accumulate on sealing surfaces.
2 Do not overheat.
3 Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and again halfway
through the heating time.
Do not operate your oven if it is damaged. It is particularly important that the
oven door closes properly and that there is no damage to the: (1) door(bent),
(2) hinges and latches (broken or loosened), (3) door seals and sealing
surfaces.
4 After heating, allow to stand in the oven for a short time, stir or shake
them(especially the contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars) again
carefully and check the temperature of them before consumption to avoid
burns (especially, contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars).
Be careful when handling the container.
Your oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone except qualified
service personnel.
WARNING
WARNING
Always allow food to stand after being cooked by
microwaves and check the temperature of them
before consumption. Especially contents of feeding
bottles and baby food jars.
Please ensure cooking times are correctly set as
over cooking may result in the FOOD catching fire
and subsequent damage to your oven.

How the Microwave Oven Works
Microwaves are a form of energy similar to radio and television waves and
ordinary daylight. Normally, microwaves spread outwards as they travel
through the atmosphere and disappear without effect. Microwave ovens,
however, have a magnetron which is designed to make use of the energy in
microwaves. Electricity, supplied to the magnetron tube, is used to created
microwave energy.
These microwaves enter the cooking area through openings inside the oven. A
turntable or tray is located at the bottom of the oven. Microwaves cannot pass
through metal walls of the oven, but they can penetrate such materials as
glass, porcelain and paper, the materials out of which microwave-safe
cooking dishes are constructed.
Microwaves do not heat cookware, though cooking vessels will eventually get
hot from the heat generated by the food.
A very safe appliance
Your microwave oven is one of the safest of all home
appliances. When the door is opened, the oven
automatically stops producing microwaves. Microwave
energy is converted completely to heat when it enters
food, leaving no “left over” energy to harm you when
you eat your food.

Defrost
The temperature and density of food varies, I would recommend that the food is checked before cooking
commences. Pay particular attention to large joints of meat and chicken, some foods should not be completely
thawed before cooking. For example chicken pieces cooks so quickly that it is sometimes better to begin cooking
while still slightly frozen. The BREAD programme is suitable for defrosting small items such as rolls or a small loaf.
These will require a standing time to allow the centre to thaw. In the following example I will show you how to
defrost 1.4kg of frozen Minced Meat.
Press STOP/CLEAR.
Weight the food that you are about to defrost. Be certain to remove any
metallic ties or wraps; then place the food in your oven and close the
oven door.
Your oven has seven microwave defrost
settings:- Minced meat, Steak/Chops,
Roast lamb, Roast beef, Whole chicken,
Chicken pieces and Bread; each defrost
category has different power settings.
Press AUTO DEFROST.
Turn DIAL to select the Minced Meat defrosting programme.
“dEF1” appears on the display window.
Press START for confirmation.
Enter the weight of the frozen food that you are about to
defrost.
Turn DIAL until display shows “1.4kg”.
Press START.
During defrosting your oven will “BEEP”, at which point open the oven door, turn food over and
separate to ensure even thawing. Remove any portions that have thawed or shield them to help slow
down thawing. After checking close the oven door and press START to resume defrosting.
Your oven will not stop defrosting (even when the beep sounded) unless the door is opened.

AUTO WEIGHT DEFROST GUIDE
* Food to be defrosted should be in a suitable microwave-safe plate and place uncovered on the glass turntable.
* If necessary, shield small areas of meat or poultry with flat pieces of aluminum foil. This will prevent thin areas becoming warm during defrosting.
Ensure the foil does not touch the oven walls.
* Separate items like minced meat, chops, sausages and bacon as soon as possible.
When beep, remove defrosted portions. Continue to defrost remaining pieces.
After defrosting, allow to stand until completely thawed.
* For example joints of meat and whole chickens should STAND for a minimum of 1 hour before cooking.

To heat or reheat successfully in the microwave, it is important to follow several guidelines. Measure the amount of
food in order to determine the time needed to reheat. Arrange the food in a circular pattern for best results. Room
temperature food will heat faster than refrigerated food. Canned foods should be taken out of the can and placed in a
microwavable container. The food will be heated more evenly if covered with a microwavable lid or vented plastic
wrap. Remove cover carefully to prevent steam burns. Use the following chart as a guide for reheating cooked food.

Defrosting
Tips
• Defrost meats only as long as necessary. Separate items like chops, sausages and bacon
as soon as possible. Remove defrosted portions and continue to defrost remaining pieces.
• Whole pieces of meat are ready fot standing time as soon as a fork can be pushed into
the centre of the meat using moderate pressure. The centre will still be icy. Allow to stand
until completely thawed.
Defrosting meats tips & techniques
“WARNING: Do not use aluminium foil during cooking cycle.”
• You can defrost meats in their original wrapping as long as no metal is present. Remove
any metal rings, twist ties, wire or foil.
• Place meat in a microwave-safe plate to catch juices.

Important safety instructions
Read carefully and keep for future reference
1 Do not attempt to tamper with, or make any adjustments or repairs to the
door, control panel, safety interlock switches or any other part of the oven.
It is hazardous for anyone to carry out any service or repair operation
which involves the removal of any cover which gives protection against
exposure to microwave energy. Repairs should only be undertaken by a
qualified service technician.
2 Do not operate the oven when empty. It is best to leave a glass of water in
the oven when not in use. The water will safely absorb all microwave
energy, if the oven is accidentally started.
3 Do not use the oven for the purpose of dehumidification. It can be the cause
of serious damage of safety. (ex. Operating the microwave oven with the
wet newspapers, clothes, toys, pet or portable electric devices, etc.)
4 Do not cook food wrapped in paper towels, unless your cook book contains
instructions, for the food you are cooking.
5 Do not use newspaper in place of paper towels for cooking.
6 Do not use wooden containers. They may heat-up and char. Do not use
ceramic containers which have metallic (e.g. gold or silver) inlays. Always
remove metal twist ties. Metal objects in the oven may arc, which can cause
serious damage.
7 Do not operate the oven with a kitchen towel, a napkin or any other
obstruction between the door and the front edges of the oven, which may
cause microwave energy leakage.
8 Do not use recycled paper products since they may contain impurities which
may cause sparks and/or fires when used in cooking.
9 Do not rinse the turntable by placing it in water just after cooking. This may
cause breakage or damage.
10 Small amounts of food require shorter cooking or heating time. If normal
times are allowed they may overheat and burn.
11 Be certain to place the oven so the front of the door is 8 cm or more
behind the edge of the surface on which it is placed, to avoid accidental
tipping of the appliance.
WARNING
Please ensure cooking times are correctly
set as over cooking may result in FIRE and
subsequent DAMAGE to the OVEN.
12 Before cooking, pierce the skin of potatoes, apples or any such fruit or
vegetable.
13 Do not cook eggs in their shell. Pressure will build up inside the egg which
will burst.
14 Do not attempt deep fat frying in your oven.
15 Remove the plastic wrapping from food before cooking or defrosting. Note
though that in some cases food should be covered with plastic film, for
heating or cooking.
16 If the oven door or door seals are damaged, the oven must not be
operated until it has been repaired by a qualified service technician.
17 If smoke is observed, switch off or disconnect the oven from the power
supply and keep the oven door closed in order to stifle any flames.
18 When food is heated or cooked in disposable containers of plastic, paper
or other combustible materials, check the oven frequently due to the
possibility of the food container is deteriorating.
19 Only allow children to use the oven without supervision when adequate
instructions have been given so that the child is able to use the oven in a
safe way and understands the hazards of improper use.
20 Liquids or other foods must not be heated in sealed containers since they
are liable to explode.
21 Do not operate the oven, if the door seals and adjacent parts of the
microwave oven are faulty, until the oven has been repaired by a qualified
service technician.
22 Check the utensils are suitable for use in microwave ovens before use.
23 Do not touch the oven door, outer cabinet, rear cabinet, oven cavity,
accessories and dishes during grill mode, convection mode and auto cook
operations, unless wearing thick oven gloves, as they will become hot.
Before clearing make sure they are not hot.

Microwave-safe
Utensils
Never use metal or metal trimmed utensils in your
microwave oven
Paper
Paper plates and containers are convenient and safe to use in your microwave oven,
provided that the cooking time is short and foods to be cooked are low in fat and
moisture. Paper towels are also very useful for wrapping foods and for lining baking
trays in which greasy foods such as bacon are cooked. In general, avoid coloured
paper products as the colour may run. Some recycled paper products may contain
impurities which could cause arcing or fires when used in the microwave oven.
Microwaves cannot penetrate metal. They will bounce off any metal object in the
oven and cause arcing, an alarming phenomenon that resembles lightning.
Most heat resistant non metallic cooking utensils are safe for use in your microwave
oven. However, some may contain materials that render them unsuitable as
microwave cookware. If you have any doubts about a particular utensil, there’s a
simple way to find out if it can be used in your microwave oven.
Place the utensil in question next to a glass bowl filled with water in the microwave
oven. Microwave at power HIGH for 1 minute. If the water heats up but the utensil
remains cool to the touch, the utensil is microwave~safe. However, if the water does
not change temperature but the utensil becomes warm, microwaves are being
absorbed by the utensil and it is not safe for use in the microwave oven. You
probably have many items on hand in your kitchen right now that can be used as
cooking equipment in your microwave oven. Just read through the following
checklist.
Plastic cooking bags
Provided they are made specially for cooking, cooking bags are microwave safe.
However, be sure to make a slit in the bag so that steam can escape. Never use
ordinary plastic bags for cooking in your microwave oven, as they will melt and
rupture.
Plastic microwave cookware
A variety of shapes and sizes of microwave cookware are available. For the most
part, you can probably use items you already have on hand rather than investing in
new kitchen equipment.
Dinner plates
Pottery, stoneware and ceramic
Many kinds of dinner-ware are microwave-safe. If in doubt consult the
manufacturer’s literature or perform the microwave test.
Containers made of these materials are usually fine for use in your microwave oven,
but they should be tested to be sure.
Glassware
Glassware that is heat-resistant is microwave-safe. This would include all brands of
oven tempered glass cookware. However, do not use delicate glassware, such as
tumblers or wine glasses, as these might shatter as the food warms.
CAUTION
Some items with high lead or iron content are not suitable for cooking
utensils.
Utensils should be checked to ensure that they are suitable for use in
microwave ovens.
Plastic storage containers
These can be used to hold foods that are to be quickly reheated. However, they
should not be used to hold foods that will need considerable time in the oven as hot
foods will eventually warp or melt plastic containers.
50
Food characteristics &
Microwave cooking
Moisture content of food
Keeping an eye on things
Since the heat generated from microwaves tends to evaporate moisture, relatively dry food
such as roasts and some vegetables should either be sprinkled with water prior to cooking
or covered to retain moisture.
The recipes in the book have been formulated with great care, but your success in
preparing them depends on how much attention you pay to the food as it cooks.
Always watch your food while it cooks. Your microwave oven is equipped with a
light that turns on automatically when the oven is in operation so that you can see
inside and check the progress of your food. Directions given in recipes to elevate,
stir, and the like should be thought of as the minimum steps recommended. If the
food seems to be cooking unevenly, simply make the necessary adjustments you think
appropriate to correct the problem.
Bone and fat content of food
Bones conduct heat and fat cooks more quickly than meat. Care must be taken when
cooking bony or fatty cuts of meat that they do not cook unevenly and do not become
overcooked.
Quantity of food
The number of microwaves in your oven remains constant regardless of how much food is
being cooked. Therefore, the more food you place in the oven, the longer the cooking time.
Remember to decrease cooking times by at least one third when halving a recipe.
Factors affecting microwave cooking times
Many factors affect cooking times. The temperature of ingredients used in a recipe
makes a big difference in cooking times. For example, a cake made with ice-cold
butter, milk, and eggs will take considerably longer to bake than one made with
ingredients that are at room temperature. All of the recipes in this book give a range
of cooking times. In general, you will find that the food remains under-cooked at the
lower end of the time range, and you may sometimes want to cook your food beyond
the maximum time given, according to personal preference. The governing
philosophy of this book is that it is best for a recipe to be conservative in giving
cooking times. While overcooked food is ruined for good. Some of the recipes,
particularly those for bread, cake, and custards, recommend that food be removed
from the oven when they are slightly undercooked. This is not a mistake. When
allowed to stand, usually covered, these foods will continue to cook outside of the
oven as the heat trapped within the outer portions of the food gradually travels
inward. If the food is left in the oven until it is cooked all the way through, the outer
portions will become overcooked or even burnt. You will become increasingly skilful
in estimating both cooking and standing times for various foods.
Shape of food
Microwaves penetrate only about 2.cm into food, the interior portion of thick foods are
cooked as the heat generated on the outside travels inward. Only the outer edge of food in
cooked by microwave energy; the rest is cooked by conduction. The worst possible shape
for a food that is to be microwaved is a thick square. The corners will burn long before the
centre is even warm . Round thin foods and ring shaped foods cook successfully in the
microwave.
Covering
A cover traps heat and steam which causes food to cook more quickly. Use a lid or
microwave cling film with a corner folded back to prevent splitting.
Browning
Meats and poultry that are cooked fifteen minutes or longer will brown lightly in their own
fat. Food that are cooked for a shorter period of time may be brushed with a browning
sauce such as worcestershire sauce, soy sauce or barbecue sauce to achieve an appetizing
colour. Since relatively small amounts of browning sauces are added to food the original
flavour of the recipe is not altered.
Density of food
Covering with greaseproof paper
Light, porous food such as cakes and breads cook more quickly than heavy, dense
foods such as roasts and casseroles. You must take care when microwaving porous
food that the outer edges do not become dry and brittle.
Greaseproofing effectively prevents spattering and helps food retain some heat. But
because it makes a looser cover than a lid or clingfilm, it allows the food to dry out slightly.
Arranging and spacing
Height of food
Individual foods such as baked potatoes, small cakes and hors d’oeuvres will heat more
evenly if placed in the oven an equal distance apart, preferably in a circular pattern. Never
stack foods on top of one another.
The upper portion of tall food, particularly roasts, will cook more quickly than the
lower portion. Therefore, it is wise to turn tall food during cooking, sometimes several
times.
51
Food characteristics &
Microwave cooking
Stirring
To Clean Your Oven
Stirring is one of the most important of all microwaving techniques. In conventional cooking,
food is stirred for the purpose of blending. Microwaved food, however, is stirred in order to
spread and redistribute heat. Always stir from the outside towards the centre as the outside
of the food heats first.
1 Keep the inside of the oven clean
Food spatters or spilled liquids stick to oven walls and between seal and door
surface. It is best to wipe up spillovers with a damp cloth right away. Crumbs and
spillovers will absorb microwave energy and lengthen cooking times. Use a damp
cloth to wipe out crumbs that fall between the door and the frame. It is important to
keep this area clean to assure a tight seal. Remove greasy spatters with a soapy cloth
then rinse and dry. Do not use harsh detergent or abrasive cleaners. The glass tray
can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher.
Turning over
Large, tall foods such as roasts and whole chickens should be turned so that the top and
bottom will cook evenly. It is also a good idea to turn cut up chicken and chops.
Placing thicker portions facing outwards
Since microwaves are attracted to the outside portion of food, it makes sense to place
thicker portions of meat, poultry and fish to the outer edge of the baking dish. This way,
thicker portions will receive the most microwave energy and the food will cook evenly.
Shielding
Strips of aluminium foil (which block microwaves) can be placed over the corners or edges
of square and rectangular foods to prevent those portions from overcooking. Never use too
much foil and make sure the foil is secured to the dish or it may cause ‘arcing’ in the oven.
2 Keep the outside of the oven clean
Clean the outside of your oven with soap and water then with clean water and dry
with a soft cloth or paper towel. To prevent damage to the operating parts inside the
oven, the water should not be allowed to seep into the ventilation openings. To clean
control panel, open the door to prevent oven from accidentally starting, and wipe a
damp cloth followed immediately by a dry cloth. Press STOP/CLEAR after cleaning.
Elevating
Thick or dense foods can be elevated so that microwaves can be absorbed by the underside
and centre of the foods.
Piercing
Foods enclosed in a shell, skin or membrane are likely to burst in the oven unless they are
pierced prior to cooking. Such foods include yolks and whites of eggs, clams and oysters
and whole vegetables and fruits.
3 If steam accumulates inside or around the outside of the oven door, wipe the panels
with a soft cloth. This may occur when the microwave oven is operated under high
humidity conditions and in no way indicates a malfunction of the unit.
Testing if cooked
Food cooks so quickly in a microwave oven, it is necessary to test it frequently. Some foods
are left in the microwave until completely cooked, but most foods, including meats and
poultry, are removed from the oven while still slightly undercooked and allowed to finish
cooking during standing time. The internal temperature of foods will rise between 50F (30C)
and 150F (80C) during standing time.
4 The door and door seals should be kept clean. Use only warm, soapy water, rinse
then dry thoroughly.
DO NOT USE ABRASIVE MATERIALS, SUCH AS CLEANING POWDERS OR STEEL
AND PLASTIC PADS.
Metal parts will be easier to maintain if wiped frequently with a damp cloth.
5 Do not use any steam cleaner.
Standing time
Foods are often allowed to stand for 3 to 10 minutes after being removed from the
microwave oven. Usually the foods are covered during standing time to retain heat unless
they are supposed to be dry in texture (some cakes and biscuits, for example). Standing
allows foods to finish cooking and also helps flavour blend and develop.

Questions &
Answers
Q What’s wrong when the oven light will not glow?
A There may be several reasons why the oven light will not glow.
Light bulb has blown
Door is not closed
Q Is it possible to pop corn in a microwave oven?
A Yes, if using one of the two methods described
below
1 Popcorn-popping utensils designed specifically for microwave cooking.
2 Prepackaged commercial microwave popcorn that contains specific
times and power outputs needed for an acceptable final product.
Q Does microwave energy pass through the viewing screen in the door?
A No. The holes, or ports, are made to allow light to pass; they do not let
microwave energy through.
FOLLOW EXACT DIRECTIONS GIVEN BY EACH MANUFACTURER FOR
THEIR POPCORN PRODUCT. DO NOT LEAVE THE OVEN UNATTENDED
WHILE THE CORN IS BEING POPPED. IF CORN FAILS TO POP AFTER
THE SUGGESTED TIMES, DISCONTINUE COOKING. OVERCOOKING
COULD RESULT IN THE CORN CATCHING FIRE.
Q Why does the beep tone sound when a pad on the Control Panel is
touched?
A The beep tone sounds to assure that the setting is being properly entered.
Q Will the microwave oven be damaged if it operates empty?
A Yes Never run it empty or without the glass tray.
CAUTION
NEVER USE A BROWN PAPER BAG FOR POPPING CORN. NEVER
ATTEMPT TO POP LEFTOVER KERNELS.
Q Why do eggs sometimes pop?
A When baking, frying, or poaching eggs, the yolk may pop due to steam
build up inside the yolk membrane. To prevent this, simply pierce the yolk
before cooking. Never microwave eggs in the shell.
Q Why doesn’t my oven always cook as fast as the cooking guide says?
A Check your cooking guide again to make sure you’ve followed directions
correctly, and to see what might cause variations in cooking time.
Cooking guide times and heat settings are suggestions, chosen to help
prevent overcooking, the most common problem in getting used to a
microwave oven. Variations in the size, shape, weight and dimensions of
the food require longer cooking time. Use your own judgement along
with the cooking guide suggestions to test food condition, lust as you
would do with a conventional cooker.
Q Why is standing time recommended after microwave cooking is over?
A After microwave cooking is finished, food keeps on cooking during
standing time. This standing time finishes cooking evenly throughout the
food. The amount of standing time depends on the density of the food.
