How the Microwave Function Works
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.
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.

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).
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.
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 you r oven.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
They may heat-up and char. Metal objects in particular may arc in the oven, which can cause serious damage.
Do not use recycled paper products.
They may contain impurities which may cause sparks and/or fires when used in cooking.

time has elapsed. After cooking has finished, the timer will be at zero.
Weight Defrost Guide
Defrosting frozen food is one of the benefits of a microwave oven. Microwave oven defrosting is much
faster than refrigerator defrosting and safer than room temperature defrosting, since it does not promote
the growth of harmful bacteria.
It is important to remember that defrosting takes longer than normal cooking.
Check the food, turning it over at least once during defrosting.
1. Turn the power select knob to set the defrosting mode.
2. Turn the timer knob clockwise to set the weight of food.
NOTE: The oven starts working as soon as the timer knob is turned. Each number of weight scale
represents kg.

Cooking Utensils
Most glass, glass ceramic and heat resistant glassware utensils are excellent. Those with metallic trim must
not be used in microwave oven.
Any utensil used for microwave cooking must be capable of withstanding very high temperatures, from the
food. There are many heat resisting utensils, of paper or plastic, available which can be used in both
microwave and conventional ovens.
Containers made of pottery, stoneware & ceramic are usually fine for use in microwave function, but they
should be tested to be sure.
Metal containers and deep trays are not suitable. They reflect energy away from the food. Foil lined
cartons are similarly, unsuitable.
