How the Microwave Function 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. This 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 create
microwave energy.
These microwaves enter the cooking area through openings inside the oven.
A tray is located inside 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 SolarDOM 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.

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 operation of
microwave function could result in harmful exposure to microwave energy.
It is important not to tamper with the safety interlocks.
When heating liquids, e.g. soups, sauces and beverages in your oven with
microwave function, 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:
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.
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.
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(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.
Note:
Excessive cooking times and temperatures can cause a build up of
condensation behind the door glass.
The settings should readjusted to reduce either the cooking time or power.
The condensation will disappear shortly after the cooking has stopped.
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.
17
Unpacking &
Installing
By following the basic steps on these two pages you will be able to quickly check that your oven is operating
correctly. Please pay particular attention to the guidance on where to install your oven. When unpacking your
oven make sure you remove all accessories and packing. Check to make sure that your oven has not been
damaged during delivery. Do not use the oven if it is damaged.
Place the oven on a level bench top surface of your
choice with more than 85cm height but make sure there
is at least 20cm of space on the top and 10cm at the rear for proper
ventilation. The front of the oven should be at least min. 8cm/max.
22cm from the edge of the surface to prevent tipping.
An exhaust outlet is located on the underside of the oven and can
emit very hot air temperatures. If the bench top is made of timber or
has a veneered finish, a shield must be placed between the oven
and the bench top to avoid it from being damaged or discoloured.
Blocking the outlet can damage the oven.
Unpack your oven and place it on a flat level surface.

How To Clean
To Clean Your Oven
To Clean the Cavity
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 immediately after
cooking. This includes any spillage under the tray. 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 Metal tray can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher.
Cavity front side
After cooking greasy food like baked chicken, wipe the
front side of the cavity with a soft sponge and neutral
detergent in the same direction of the textured
surface, and finish off with a soft dry towel. (Inside
of the door, remove any grease with a sponge or a
soft towel.)
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.
Cavity inside
• Regularly wipe the inside with a damp towel or
sponge with a neutral detergent, and finish off
with a soft dry towel.
• If you do not clean the inside of the cavity for a
long time, oil stains may become difficult to
remove and cause unpleasant odours.
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 oven is operated under high
humidity conditions and in no way indicates a malfunction of the unit.
• If it is hard to remove water marks around the steam
outlet on the wall of the cavity, you can remove it more effectively with a
sponge and white vinegar solution.
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.
• After cooking with steam, wipe the inside of the cavity with a dry towel.
• It is recommended that the steam cleaning function be used after cooking
greasy foods such as baked or roast chicken and fish.
5. Unplug your oven from the electrical socket when you clean the control panel
and glass with a soft damp cloth to prevent the unit from accidently turning
on if the Quick Start button is accidently pressed during cleaning.

Microwave-safe
Utensils
microwave function, 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 using microwave function.
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 using
microwave function, 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 using
microwave function, but they should be tested to be sure.
Never use metal or metal trimmed utensils during microwave function
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 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 using microwave function.
Place the utensil in question next to a glass bowl filled with water in using
microwave function. 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 using microwave function. You probably have many
items on hand in your kitchen right now that can be used as cooking
equipment in using microwave function. 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 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.
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.
Paper
Paper plates and containers are convenient and safe to use when using
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 when
using microwave function.
Note:
Excessive cooking times and temperatures can cause a build up of
condensation behind the door glass. The settings should readjusted to
reduce either the cooking time or power. The condensation will disappear
shortly after the cooking has stopped.

Food characteristics &
Microwave cooking
Keeping an eye on things
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
function 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 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.
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 with non metallic material 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.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.
61
Food characteristics &
Microwave cooking
Covering
A cover traps heat and steam which causes food to cook more quickly. Use a
suitable 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.
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.
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.
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 over 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 and subsequent damage.
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 jacket potatoes,
yolks and whites of eggs, clams and oysters and whole vegetables and fruits.
Testing if cooked
Food cooks so quickly in a 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.
Standing time
Foods are often allowed to stand for 3 to 10 minutes after being removed from
the 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
Relay has failed
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 this
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 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 button on the Control Panel is
touched?
A The beep tone sounds to assure that the setting is being properly entered.
Q Will the microwave function be damaged if it operates empty?
A Yes Never run it empty.
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.
