How the Microwave Function Works
Contents ________________________________________________ 3
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.

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.

* Food to be defrosted should be in a suitable microwave proof container and place uncovered on the glass turntable.
* If necessary, shield small areas of meat or poultry with flat pieces of aluminum foil. This will prevent thin areas becoming warm during defrosting.
Ensure the foil does not touch the oven walls.
* Separate items like minced meat, chops, sausages and lamb as soon as possible.

Important safety instructions
Read carefully and keep for future reference
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.
It is hazardous for anyone to carry out any service or repair operation
which involves the removal of any cover which gives protection against
exposure to microwave energy. Repairs should only be undertaken by a
qualified service technician.
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 safely absorb all microwave
energy, if the oven is accidentally started.
3 Do not dry clothes in the microwave oven, which may become carbonized
or burned if heated too long.
4 Do not cook food wrapped in paper towels, unless your cook book
contains instructions, for the food you are cooking.
5 Do not use newspaper in place of paper towels for cooking.
6 Do not use wooden containers. They may heat-up 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.
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.

Microwave-safe
Utensils
Never use metal or metal trimmed utensils in your
microwave oven
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
lamb 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 the 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.
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.
Dinner plates
Many kinds of dinner-ware are microwave-safe. If in doubt consult the
manufacturer’s literature or perform the microwave test.
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.
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.
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 in
microwave ovens.
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.
35
GB
Food characteristics &
Microwave cooking
Moisture content of food
Keeping an eye on things
GB
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Density of food
Covering with greaseproof paper
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.
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
Height of food
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.
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.

Food characteristics &
Microwave cooking
Stirring
To Clean Your Oven
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.

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.
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.
2 Keep the outside of the oven clean

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

allows foods to finish cooking and also helps flavour blend and develop.
Metal parts will be easier to maintain if wiped frequently with a damp cloth.

Q Is it possible to pop corn in a microwave oven?
A There may be several reasons why the oven light will not glow.
A Yes, if using one of the two methods described
Light bulb has blown
below
Door is not closed
1 Popcorn-popping utensils designed specifically for microwave cooking.
2 Prepackaged commercial microwave popcorn that contains specific
times and power outputs needed for an acceptable final product.
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.
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 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
Q Will the microwave oven be damaged if it operates empty?
NEVER USE A BROWN PAPER BAG FOR POPPING CORN. NEVER
ATTEMPT TO POP LEFTOVER KERNELS.
A Yes Never run it empty or without the glass tray.
Q Why do eggs sometimes pop?
Q Why doesn’t my oven always cook as fast as the cooking guide says?
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.
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, lust as you
would do with a conventional cooker.
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.
