MICROWAVE OVEN
OWNER'S MANUAL & COOKING GUIDE
MODEL : MS4646SS
PLEASE READ THIS OWNER’S MANUAL
THOROUGHLY BEFORE OPERATING.
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, stir or shake them again carefully and check the
temperature of them 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.
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.

once (MEAT), twice (POULTRY), or
three times(FISH).
*Available weight is 0.1~4.0 kg.
However, when you want to defrost and cook
consecutively, you should enter less than 4.0 kg.
OPERATING TIPS
• For best results, remove fish, shellfish, meat, and
poultry from its original closed paper or plastic package (wrapper). Otherwise, the wrap will hold steam
and juice close to the foods, which can cause the
outer surface of the foods to cook.
• For best results, shape your ground meat into the
form of a doughnut before freezing. When defrosting,
scrape off thawed meat when the beep sounds and
continue defrosting.
• Place foods in a shallow container or on a microwave
roasting rack to catch drippings.
• Food should still be somewhat icy in the center when
removed from the oven.

COOKING TIPS
Meat
Poultry
1. No special techniques are required. Meat
should be prepared as with conventional
cooking. Season if desired. Always thoroughly
defrost meat before cooking.
2. Place the meat on a microwave roasting rack or
microwave-proof plate and place on the
turntable.
3. Cook according to the Meat Cooking Chart
(below). Use the longer time for large meats
and the shorter time for smaller meats. For
thicker chops, use the longer time.
4. Turn the meat once halfway through the
cooking time.
5. Let stand for 5-10 minutes wrapped in foil after
cooking. The standing time is very important as
it completes the cooking process.
6. Make sure meat, especially pork, is thoroughly
cooked before eating.
1. No special techniques are required. Poultry
should be prepared as with conventional
cooking. Season if desired.
2. Poultry should be thoroughly defrosted.
Remove giblets and any metal clamps.
3. Prick the skin and brush lightly with vegetable
oil unless the poultry is self-basting.
4. All poultry should be placed on a microwave
roasting rack or a microwave-proof plate and
placed on the turntable.
5. Cook according to the instructions in the Poultry
Cooking Chart below. Turn over halfway
through the cooking time. Because of its shape,
poultry has a tendency to cook unevenly,
especially in very bony parts.Turning during
roasting helps to cook these areas evenly.
6. Let stand for 5-10 minutes wrapped in foil after
cooking before carving. The standing time is
very important, as it completes the cooking
process.
7. Make sure poultry is thoroughly cooked before
eating. Whole poultry is completely cooked
when the juices run clear from the inside thigh
when it is pierced with a sharp knife. Poultry
pieces should be pierced with a sharp knife
through the thickest part to ensure that the
juices are clear and the flesh is firm.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
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.

MICROWAVE-SAFE UTENSILS
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.
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.
CAUTION
Some items with high lead or iron content are
not suitable for cooking utensils.
Dinner plates or cups that have painted finishes
should not be used in the microwave as the
decorative paint will cause arching and damage to
the paint's finish if the paint is metallic based.

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 brittle.
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.
21
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 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.
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
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 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 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.
22
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
WARNING
Please ensure cooking times are correctly set as over cooking may result in FIRE and
subsequent DAMAGE to the OVEN.
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.
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. Repairs should only be undertaken by a
qualified service technician.
12 Before cooking, pierce the skin of potatoes,
apples or any such fruit or vegetable.
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 safety absorb all microwave
energy, if the oven is accidentally started.
13 Do not cook eggs in their shell. Pressure will
build up inside the egg which will burst.
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.)
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.
4 Do not cook food wrapped in paper towels,
unless your cook book contains instructions, for
the food you are cooking.
16 If the oven door is damaged, the oven must not
be operated until it has been repaired by a
qualified service technician.
5 Do not use newspaper in place of paper towels
for cooking.
17 If smoke is observed, keep the oven door
closed and switch off or disconnect the oven
from the power supply.
6 Do not use wooden containers. They may heatup 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.
18 When food is heated or cooked in disposable
containers of plastic, paper or other combustible
materials look at the oven frequently to check if
the food container is deteriorating.
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.
19 The appliance is not intended for use by young
children or infirm persons without supervision;
Young Children should be supervised to ensure
that they do not play with appliance.
8 Do not use recycled paper products since they
may contain impurities which may cause sparks
and/or fires when used in cooking.
20 Liquids or other foods must not be heated in
sealed containers since they are liable to
explode.
9 Do not rinse the turntable by placing it in water
just after cooking. This may cause breakage or
damage.
21 If the appliance is supplied from a cord extension
set or an electrical portable outlet device,the cord
extension set on electrical portable outlet device
must be positioned so that it is not subject to
splashing or ingress of moisture.
10 Small amounts of food require shorter cooking
or heating time. If normal times are allowed they
may overheat and burn.
23
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

QUESTION & 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.
1 Popcorn-popping utensils designed specifically
for microwave cooking.
2 Prepackaged microwave popcorn
that contains specific times and power outputs
needed for an acceptable final product.
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 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.
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.
CAUTION
NEVER USE A BROWN PAPER BAG FOR
POPPING CORN. NEVER ATTEMPT TO POP
LEFTOVER KERNELS.
Q Will the microwave oven be damaged if it
operates empty?
A Yes. Never run it empty or without the glass
tray.
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 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 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?
A Yes, if using one of the two methods described
below:
