How the Microwave Function Works
4 Important Safety Instructions
Microwaves are a form of energy similar to radio,
television waves, and ordinary daylight. Normally,
microwaves spread outwards as they travel through the
atmosphere and disappear without effect.
This oven, however, has a magnetron that is designed
to make use of the energy in microwaves. Electricity,
supplied to the magnetron tube, is used to create
microwave energy.
8 BEFORE USE
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 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.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
5
8 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.
9 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.
• It could result in harmful exposure to excessive microwave energy. (Safety interlocks automatically switch off any
cooking activity when the door is opened.)
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.
• Over cooking may result in the food catching on fire and subsequent damage to your oven.
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).
• Be careful when handling the container. Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed eruptive boiling
without evidence of bubbling. This could result in hot liquids suddenly boiling over.
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.
• Improper use can cause an explosion or a fire.

10 BEFORE USE
Microwave-Safe Utensils
Never use metal or metal trimmed utensils in using 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 the microwave.
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 the microwave. Just read through the following checklist.
Dinner plates
Many kinds of dinnerware 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 in using 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 fіres when used in the microwave.
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.
CAUTION
• Some items with high lead or iron content are not suitable as cooking utensils.
• Utensils should be checked to ensure that they are suitable for use in the microwave.

90° C (Low) Setting
The Low setting gently simmers food for an extended period of time
without overcooking or burning. No stirring is required when using this
setting.
110° C (High) Setting
The High setting will cook food in approximately half the time required
for the Low setting. Some foods may boil when cooked on the high
setting, so it may be necessary to add extra liquid. Occasional stirring of
stews and casseroles will improve flavor distribution.
Searing and browning before slow cooking is not necessary, but this
will help to seal in the juices and flavors, and keeps the meat tender.

Auto Defrost
The temperature and density of food varies, recommend
that the food be checked before cooking begins. Pay
particular attention to large joints of meat and chicken,
some foods should not be completely thawed before
cooking.
For example fish cooks so quickly that it is sometimes
better to begin cooking while still slightly frozen. This will
require a standing time to allow the centre to thaw.
Weigh the food that you are about to defrost. Be certain
to remove any metallic ties or wraps; then place the food
on microwave safe dish on the glass tray in your oven
and close the oven door.
In the following example, show you how to defrost 0.8kg

30 FOOD CHARACTERISTICS & MICROWAVE COOKING
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 because 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 skillful 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 so that the outer edges do not become dry and brittle.
Height of food
The upper portion of tall foods, particularly roasts, will cook more quickly than the lower portion.
Therefore, it is wise to turn tall food several during cooking.
Moisture content of food
Since the heat generated from microwaves causes moisture to evaporate, 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 in order to prevent unevenly or overcooked meat.
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 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 most
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.
FOOD CHARACTERISTICS & MICROWAVE COOKING
Food Characteristics & Microwave Cooking
Browning
Meats and poultry that are cooked fifteen minutes or longer will brown lightly in their own fat. Foods 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
It is a looser cover than a lid or cling film, the food may dry out slightly. 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 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.
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.
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 5° F (3° C) and 15° F (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.

To Clean Your Oven
1 Keep the inside of the oven clean
F ood spatters or spilled liquids stick to oven walls and between the seal and door surfaces. 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 metal tray can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher.
2 Keep the outside of the oven clean
lean the outside of your oven with soap and water then with clean water and dry with a soft cloth or paper
C
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 the oven from accidentally starting, and
wipe a damp cloth followed immediately by a dry cloth. Press Stop/Clear after cleaning.
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.
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 steam cleaners.
6 Unplug your oven from the electrical socket when you clean control panel with wet cloth or spray water on control
glass to clean. If it is not unplugged, this product can be operated by touching the Quick Start button.
Questions & Answers
FAQ
Answer
What’s wrong when the oven light will not glow?
There may be several reasons why the oven light will not glow.
Either the light bulb has blown or the electric circuit has failed.
Does microwave energy pass through the
viewing screen in the door?
No. The holes, or ports, are made to allow light to pass; they do not
let microwave energy through.
Why does the beep tone sound when a button
on the control panel is touched?
The beep tone sounds to assure that the setting is being properly
entered.
Will the microwave function be damaged if it
operates empty?
Yes. Never run it empty.
Why do eggs sometimes pop?
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.
Why is standing time recommended after
microwave cooking is over?
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.
Why doesn’t my oven always cook as fast as the
cooking guide says?
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 this oven. Variations in the
size, shape, weight and dimensions of the food require longer
cooking time. Use your own judgment along with the cooking
guide suggestions to test food conditions, just as you would do
with a conventional cooker.
