Precautions
Precautions to avoid possible exposure to excessive microwave energy.
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 case of
a microwave oven could result in harmful exposure to microwave energy.
It is important not to tamper with the safety interlocks.
Do not place any object between the oven front face and the door or allow food or cleaner residue to accumulate
on sealing surfaces.
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.
Your oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone except qualified service personnel.
• Utensils should be checked to ensure that they are suitable for use in microwave ovens.
• When heating food in plastic or paper containers, check the oven frequently due to the possibility of ignition.
• If smoke is observed, switch off or unplug the appliance and keep the door closed in order to stifle any
flames.
• Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed eruptive boiling. Therefore care has to be taken when
handing the container.
• The contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars are to be stirred or shaken and the temperature is to be
checked before consumption, in order to avoid burns.
• Eggs in their shell and whole hard-boiled eggs shall not be heated in microwave ovens since they may explode.
Warning
Please ensure cooking times are correctly set as over cooking may result in
the FOOD catching fire and subsequent damage to your oven.
When heating liquids, e.g. soups, sauces and beverages in your microwave oven, overheating the liquid beyond
boiling point 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:
1. Avoid using straight sided containers with narrow necks.
2. Do not overheat.
3. Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and again halfway through the heating time.
4. After heating, allow to stand in the oven for a short time, stir or shake them again carefully and check the
temperature of them before consumption to avoid burns (especially, contents of feeding bottles and baby food
jars).

Introduction
How the Microwave Oven Works
Microwaves are a form of energy similar to radio and
television waves and ordinary daylight. Ordinarily,
microwaves spread outwards as they travel through
the atmosphere and disappear without effect.
Microwave 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 the 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 cook your food.
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 undercooked food is
ruined for good. Some of the recipes, particularly those
for bread, cakes, 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 foods gradually travels inward. If
the foods are left in the oven until they are cooked all
the way through, the outer portions will become
overcooked or even burnt. As you gain experience in
using your microwave oven, you will become
increasingly skillful in estimating both cooking and
standing times for various foods.
Getting The Best Results From Your
Microwave Oven
How Food Characteristics Affect
Microwave Cooking
Keeping an eye on things.The recipes in this book
have been formulated with great care, but your
success in preparing them depends, of course, 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
recipe.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.
Density of foods: 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 foods that the outer
edges do not become dry and brittle.
Factors affecting cooking times. To check the
wattage of your oven, refer to the specifications at the
beginning of this book. Many factors affect cooking
times. The temperature of ingredients used in a recipe
makes a big difference in cooking times.
Bone and fat content of foods: Bones conduct heat
and fat cooks more quickly than meat. Therefore, care
must be taken when cooking bony or fatty cuts of meat
that they do not cook unevenly and do not become
overcooked.
Height of foods: The upper portion of tall foods,
particularly roasts, will cook more quickly than the
lower portion. Therefore, it is wise to turn tall foods
during cooking, sometimes several times.
Moisture content of foods: Since the heat generated
from microwaves tends to evaporate moisture,
relatively dry foods such as roasts and some
vegetables should either be sprinkled with water prior
to cooking or covered to retain moisture.
6
Introduction
Stirring: Stirring is one of the most important of all
microwaving techniques. In conventional cooking,
foods are stirred for the purpose of blending.
Microwaved foods, however, are stirred in order to
spread and redistribute heat. Always stir from the
outside towards the centre as the outside of the food
heats first.
Quantity of foods: 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
halfing a recipe.
Shape of foods: Microwaves penetrate only about 1
inch (2.5cm) into foods, the interior portion of thick
foods are cooked as the heat generated on the outside
travels inward. In other words, only the outer edge of
any foods is actually cooked by microwave energy; the
rest is cooked by convection. It follows then that 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.
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
foods, 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 foods will cook evenly.
Shielding: Strips of aluminum foil, which block
microwaves, are sometimes 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 tightly secured to the dish
or it may cause ‘arcing’ in the oven.
Special Techniques In 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 to achieve an
appetizing colour. The most commonIy used browning
sauces are Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and
barbecue sauce. Since relatively small amounts of
browning sauces are added to foods, the original
flavour of recipes are not altered.
Elevating: Thick or dense foods are often 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 both
yolks and whites of eggs, clams and oysters and many
whole vegetables and fruits.
Covering: A cover traps heat and steam which causes
food to cook more quickly. You may either use a lid or
microwave clingfilm with a corner folded back to
prevent splitting.
Testing if cooked: Because foods cook so quickly in
a microwave oven, it is necessary to test food
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.
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.
Wrapping in greaseproof or paper towel:
Sandwiches and many other foods containing
prebaked bread should be wrapped prior to
microwaving to prevent drying out.
Standing time: 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 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.
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.

Introduction
Microwave-Safe Utensils
3. 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.
Never use metal or metal trimmed utensils in your
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.
4. 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.
Testing utensils for microwave use: Place the
utensil in question next to a glass bowl filled with water
in the microwave oven.
5. Plastic cooking bags: These are microwave-safe.
provided they are specially made for cooking.
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.
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.
6. Plastic microwave cookware: A variety of shapes
and sizes of microwave cookware is available. For the
most part, you can probably microwave items you
already have on hand rather than investing in new
kitchen equipment.
1. Dinner plates: Many kinds of dinner-ware are
microwave-safe. If in doubt consult the manufacturer’s
literature or perform the microwave test.
7. 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.
2. 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 tumbles or wine glasses,
as these might shatter as the food warms.
CAUTION: HIGH IRON CONTENT, HIGH LEAD

Heating or Reheating Guide
To heat or reheat successfully in the microwave, it is important to follow several guidelines. Measure the amount
of food in order to determine the time needed to reheat. Arrange the food in a circular pattern for best results.
Room temperature food will heat faster than refrigerated food. Canned foods should be taken out of the can and
placed in a microwavable container. The food will be heated more evenly if covered with a microwavable lid or
plastic wrap, vented. Remove cover carefully to prevent steam burns. Use the following chart as a guide for
reheating cooked food.

Other Helpful Instructions
For Best Results:
1. When determining the time for a particular food,
begin by using minimum time and checking
condition occasionally. It is easy to overcook food
because microwaves cook very quickly.
2. Small quantities of food or foods with low water
content may dry out and become hard if cooked too
long.
3. Do not use the oven for drying kitchen towels or
paper products. They may burn.
4. Break eggs before cooking them in the microwave.
5. For food items such as apples, potatoes, egg yolks,
chicken livers, etc., be sure to pierce the skin or
membrane to prevent bursting of the food while
cooking in the oven.
Cooking Utensils:
1. Most glass, ceramic glass and heat resistant
glassware utensils are microwave-safe.
2. Most paper napkins, towels, plates, cups, cartons,
and cardboard are convenient utensils. Some
recycled paper products may contain impurities
which could cause arcing or fires when used in the
microwave oven.
3. Some plastic dishes, cups, containers, and wraps
may be used in the microwave oven. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions or information given in
the cooking guide when using plastics in the
microwave oven.
4. Metal utensils and utensils with metallic trim should
not be used in the microwave oven.
Defrosting Frozen Foods:
1. Foods that have been frozen can be placed directly
in the oven for thawing. (Be certain to remove any
metallic ties or wraps.)
2. Defrost according to the Defrost Guide found in this
Manual.
3. For areas of the food thawing faster than others,
shield if necessary.
This helps slow down or stop the defrosting
process.
4. 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.
5. It may be necessary to increase or decrease the
cooking time in some recipes, depending on the
starting temperature of the foods.
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 glass tray 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 with 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 microwave 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.
NOTE:
Air from the vent may become warm during cooking.
This is normal.
Browning:
There are a few foods which are not cooked long
enough in the microwave oven to brown and may
need additional colour.
Coatings such as SHAKE & BAKER®, paprika, and
browning agents such kitchen bouquer® or
Worcestershire sauce may be used on chops, meat
patties or chicken parts.
Roasts, poultry or ham, cooked for 10-15 minutes or
longer, will brown nicely without extra additives.

Safety Precautions
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. Repairs should only be undertaken by a
qualified service technician.
12. Before cooking, pierce the skin of potatoes, apples
or any such fruit or vegetable.
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.
14. Do not attempt deep fat frying in your oven.
13. Do not cook eggs in their shell. Pressure will build
up inside the egg which will burst.
15. Remove the plastic wrapping from food before
cooking or defrosting.
Note though that in some cases food should be
covered with plastic film, for heating or cooking, as
detailed in microwave cook books.
3. Do not dry clothes in the microwave oven, which
may become carbonized or burned if heated too
long.
16. The oven must never be used if the door seal is
not in good working order.
4. Do not cook food wrapped in paper towels, unless
your cook book contains instructions, for the food
you are
cooking.
17. When liquids are cooked in microwave units, they
may be overheated above their boiling point
without visible bubbling. When the container is
removed, the shock may cause the sudden for
motion of steam bubbles. A fountain of hot liquid
can spring up out of the container explosively.
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 metal containers or crockery 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.
18. If smoke is observed keep the oven door closed
and switch off or disconnect the oven from the
power supply.
19. When food is heated or cooked in disposable
containers of plastic, paper or other combustible
materials look at the oven frequently to check if the
food container is deteriorating.
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.
20. This connection may be achieved by having the plug
accessible or by incorporation a switch in the fixed wiring
in accordance with the wiring rules.
8. Do not use recycled paper products since they
may contain impurities which may cause sparks
and/or fires when used in cooking.
21. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers
to clean the oven door glass since they can scratch the su
rface,
which may result in shattering of the glass.
9. Do not rinse the turntable by placing it in water just
after cooking.
This may cause breakage or damage.
22. The temperature of accessible surfaces may be high
when the appliance is operating. Ther door or the outer
surface may get hot when the appliance is operating.
The sufaces are liable to get hot during use.
10. Small amounts of food require shorter cooking or
heating time. If normal times are allowed they may
overheat and burn.
23.This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory
or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision
or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a
person responsible for their safety.
11. Be certain to place the oven so the front of the
door is 8cm or more behind the edge of the
surface on which it is placed, to avoid accidental
tipping of the appliance.
WARNING—Please ensure cooking times are
correctly set as over cooking may result
in FIRE and subsequent DAMAGE to the
OVEN.

Questions And Answers
Q What’s wrong when the oven light will not glow?
Q Is it possible to pop corn in a microwave oven?
A There may be several reasons why the oven light
will not glow.
• Light bulb has blown.
• Door is not closed.
A Yes, if using one of the two methods described
below:
(1) Popcorn-popping utensils designed specifically
for microwave cooking.
Q Does microwave energy pass through the
viewing screen in the door?
(2) Prepackaged commercial microwave popcorn
that contains specific times and power outputs
needed for an acceptable final product.
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.
Q Will the microwave oven be damaged if it
operates empty?
A Yes. Never run it empty or without the glass tray.
CAUTION
Q Why do eggs sometimes pop?
NEVER USE A BROWN PAPER BAG FOR
POPPING CORN. NEVER ATTEMPT TO POP
LEFTOVER KERNELS.
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?
Q Why is standing time recommended after
microwave cooking is over?
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, just as you
would do with a conventional cooker.
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.
