Lamp(OPTION)
The emitted rays from the Far Infrared Lamp(F.I.R) prevents food from getting dry, and therfore prolongs the
foods freshness. It also increases the nucleic acid in the food which helps to protect the smell and taste of the
food.

Operating
The F.I.R lamp is automatically controlled by the internal
temperature. It is not necessary to operate manually.
The F.I.R lamp has a special coating to make it effective.
If the lamp is covered by anything, the efficiency will be
reduced.
Better results will be obtained if foods
