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 turntable or tray is located at the bottom of 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 oven, Solar DOM, 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.
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:
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.
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.
2 Do not overheat.
3 Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and again halfway
through the heating time.
Do not operate your oven if it was 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.
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.
Your oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone except qualified
service personnel.
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.

Auto Defrost
The temperature and density of food vary, I would recommend that the food be checked before cooking
commences. Pay particular attention to large joints of meat and chicken, some foods should not be completely
thawed before cooking. For example fish is cooked so quickly that it is sometimes better to begin cooking while
still slightly frozen. The BREAD programme is suitable for defrosting small items such as rolls or a small loaf.
These will require a standing time to allow the centre to thaw. In the following example I will show you how to
defrost 1.4kg of frozen poultry.
Press STOP/CLEAR.
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
low rack on the metal tray and close the oven door.
Press AUTO DEFROST(
Your oven has four microwave defrost
settings:- MEAT, POULTRY, FISH and
BREAD; each defrost category has
different power settings.
).
Turn CONTROL dial knob until display shows “dEF2”.
Press ENTER/CLOCK for category confirmation.
Enter the weight of the frozen food that you are about to defrost.
Turn CONTROL dial knob until display shows “1.4kg” for the weight of
frozen food.
Press START/Q-START.
During defrosting your oven will “BEEP”, at which point open the oven door, turn food over and separate to ensure
even thawing. Remove any portions that have thawed or shield them to help slow down thawing. After checking, close
the oven door and press START/Q-START to resume defrosting.
Your oven will not stop defrosting (even when the beep sounded) unless the door is opened.
38
DEFROSTING GUIDE
* Food to be defrosted should be in a suitable microwave proof container and should be placed uncovered on the low rack on the metal tray.
* 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 bacon as soon as possible. When BEEP, turn food over. Continue to defrost remaining pieces.
Allow to stand until completely thawed.
* For example, joints of meat and whole chickens should be standed for a minimum 1 hour before cooking.

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 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 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 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.
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
using microwave function.
42
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 undercooked 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.
43
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 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.
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.
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.
Food characteristics &
Microwave cooking
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
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 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 drip dish can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher.
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.
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 any steam cleaner.

ATTEMPT TO POP LEFTOVER KERNELS.
Q Will the microwave function be damaged if it operates empty?
A Yes Never run it empty or without the metal tray.
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 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 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.
