PRECAUTIONS
Precautions to avoid possible exposure to excessive microwave energy.
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.
Do not place any object between the oven front face and the door or allow food or cleaner residue to
accumulate on sealing surfaces.
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.
Your oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone except qualified service personnel.
Warning
Please ensure cooking times are correctly set as over cooking may result in the FOOD catching
fire and subsequent damage to your oven.
When heating liquids, e.g. soups, sauces and beverages in your microwave oven, overheating the liquid
beyond boiling point 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:
1. Avoid using straight sided containers with narrow necks.
2. Do not overheat.
3. Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and again halfway through the heating time.
4. After heating, allow to stand in the oven for a short time and check the temperature of the liquid before
consumption to avoid burns (especially, contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars).
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.
Never leave lids on bottles when heating as they will explode and may cause personal injury
and damage the 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.

HEATING OR REHEATING GUIDE
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 plastic wrap and vented. Remove cover carefully to prevent steam burns. Use the
following chart as a guide for reheating cooked food. Never cook or reheat with lids fitted to
containers or bottles.

MICROWAVE-SAFE UTENSILS
Never use metal or metal trimmed utensils in
your 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.
Dinner plates
Many kinds of dinner-ware are microwave-safe. If
in doubt consult the manufacturer’s literature or
perform the microwave test.
Glassware
Glassware that is heat-resistant is microwavesafe. 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.
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 and cause them to
pressurize and possibly explode.
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 colored 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.
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.
Pottery, stoneware and ceramic
Containers made of these materials are usually
fine for use in your microwave oven, but they
should be tested to be sure.
CAUTION
Some items with high lead or iron content are
not suitable for cooking utensils.
Do not use any China, pottery, or stoneware
utensils or items that are finished with reflective
paint. Using these can cause arcing and damage
the utensil.
19
FOOD CHARACTERISTICS & MICROWAVE COOKING
Keeping an eye on things
The recipes in this 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.
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.
Density of food
Light, porous food such as cakes and bread 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 over cooked. Over cooked
foods can be a fire hazard.
Height of food
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.
Moisture content of food
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.
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.
Shape of food
Microwaves penetrate only about 2.5 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 is 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 is 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 sauce is
added to food, the original flavour of the recipe is
not altered.
Covering with greaseproof paper
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
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.
20
FOOD CHARACTERISTICS & MICROWAVE COOKING
Standing time
Stirring
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.
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.
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.
To Clean Your Oven
1 Keep the inside of the oven clean
Food spatters or spilled liquids stick to oven walls
and between the oven and door surface. It is best to
wipe up spillovers with a damp cloth immediately.
Not doing so could cause the paint finish to become
damaged. 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.
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 food to prevent those
portions from overcooking. Never use too much
foil and make sure the foil is secured to the dish
and does not come into contact with the oven
cavity as 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
then wipe the control panel with a damp cloth,
followed immediately by a dry cloth. Press STOP
after cleaning whilst the door is still open.
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. Condensation may also form inside the door.
To prevent or reduce this occurrence, reduce the
cooking power, or reduce the cooking time.
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 3°C and 8°C 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.
21

Unlike other appliances, the microwave oven is a high-voltage and a highelectrical-current piece of equipment.
Improper use or repair could result in harmful exposure to excessive microwave energy or in electric shock.
2 Do not use the oven for the purpose of dehumidification.(ex. Operating themicrowave oven
with wet newspapers, clothes, toys, electric devices, pet or child etc.)
It can be the cause of serious damage to safety such as a fire, a burn or a sudden death due to an electric shock.
3 This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical,
sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been
given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for
their safety.
4 Accessible parts may become hot during use. Young children should be kept away.
They may get a burn.
5 Liquids or other foods must not be heated in sealed containers since they are liable to explode.
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.
They could burst.
6 Be certain to use proper accessories on each operation mode.
Improper use could result in damage to your oven and accessories, or could make spark and a fire.
7 The children should not allow to play with accessories or hang down from the door handle.
They may get hurt.
8 If the door or door seals are damaged, the oven must not be operated until it has been repaired
by a competent person.
22
9 It is hazardous for anyone other than a competent person to carry out any service or repair
operation that involves the removal of a cover which gives protection against exposure to
microwave energy.
10 When the appliance is operated in the combination mode, children should only use the oven
under adult supervision due to the temperatures generated.
CAUTION
1 You cannot operate your oven with the door open due to the safety interlocks built into the door
mechanism. It is important not to tamper with the safety interlocks.
2 Do not place any object (such as kitchen towels, napkins, etc.) between the oven front face and
the door or allow food or cleaner residue to accumulate on sealing surfaces.
It could result in harmful exposure to excessive microwave energy.
3 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.
It could result in harmful exposure to excessive microwave energy.
4 Please ensure cooking times are correctly set, Small amounts of food require shorter cooking or
heating time.
5 When heating liquids, e.g. soups, sauces and beverages in your microwave oven,
Avoid using straight sided containers with narrow necks.
Do not overheat.
Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and again halfway through the
heating time.
After heating, let it stand in the oven for a short time; stir or shake it again carefully and check
the temperature of it before consuming to avoid burns
(especially, contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars).
Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed eruptive boiling, therefore care has to
be taken when handling the container.
6 An exhaust outlet is located on the top, bottom or side of the oven.
Don't block the outlet.
It could result in damage to your oven and poor cooking results.
7 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.
Improper use could result in damage to your oven.
8 Do not cook food wrapped in paper towels, unless your cook book contains instructions for the
food you are cooking. And do not use newspaper in place of paper towels for cooking.
9 Do not use wooden containers and ceramic containers that have metallic (e.g. gold or silver)
inlays. Always remove metal twist ties. Check that the utensils are suitable for use in
microwave ovens before use.
Metallic containers for food and beverages are not allowed during microwave cooking.
They may heat-up and char. Metal objects in particular may arc in the oven, which can cause serious damage.
23
10 Do not use recycled paper products.
11 Do not rinse the tray and rack by placing it in water just after cooking. This may cause breakage
or damage.
Improper use could result in damage to your oven.
12 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.
Improper use could result in bodily injury and oven damage.
13 Before cooking, pierce the skin of potatoes, apples or any such fruit or vegetable.
They could burst.
14 Do not cook eggs in their shell. Eggs in their shell and whole hardboiled eggs should not be
heated in microwave ovens since they may explode, even after microwave heating has ended.
Pressure will build up inside the egg which will burst.
15 Do not attempt deep fat frying in your oven.
This could result in a sudden boil over of the hot liquid.
16 If smoke is observed (or emitted), switch off or unplug the appliance and keep the door closed
17 When food is heated or cooked in disposable containers made of plastic, paper or other
combustible materials, keep an eye on the oven and check it frequently.
18 The temperature of accessible surfaces may be high when the appliance is operating. Do not
touch the oven door, outer cabinet, rear cabinet, oven cavity, accessories and dishes during
grill mode, convection mode and auto cook operations, before clearing make sure they are
not hot.
As they will become hot, there is the danger of a burn unless wearing thick culinary gloves .
19 The oven should be cleaned regularly and any food deposits should be removed.
Failure to maintain the oven in a clean condition could lead to deterioration of the surface that
could adversely affect the life of the appliance and possibly result in a hazardous situation.
20 Only use the temperature probe recommended for this oven.
You can not ascertain that the temperature is accurate with an unsuitable temperature probe.
21 Follow exact directions given by each manufacturer for their popcorn product. Do not leave the

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, just 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.
Q Is it possible to pop corn in a microwave
oven?
