appliance only for its intended use as described in the manual. Do not use corrosive chemicals
or vapors in this appliance. This type of oven is specifically designed to heat, cook, or dry food. It is not
designed for industrial or laboratory use.
As with any appliance, close supervision is necessary when used by children.
Do not operate this appliance if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, or if it has
been damaged or dropped.
This appliance should be serviced only by qualified service personnel. Contact the nearest authorized
service facility for examination, repair or adjustment.
Do not cover or block any openings on the appliance.
Do not store this appliance outdoors. Do not use this product near water; for example, near a kitchen sink,
in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool and the like.
Do not immerse cord or plug in water nor allow them to get wet.
Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
Do not let cord hang over the edge of table or counter where the microwave oven is located.
Either-(a) When cleaning door surfaces and oven that comes together on closing the door, use only mild,
non-abrasive soaps or detergents applied with a sponge or soft cloth; or when separate cleaning instructions apply, (b) See door surface cleaning instruction on specific page or section to be included in this

cavity:
a. Do not overcook food. Carefully attend appliance if paper, plastic, or other combustible materials are
placed inside the oven to facilitate cooking.
b. Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before placing bag in the oven.
c. If materials inside the oven should ignite, KEEP OVEN DOOR CLOSED, turn oven off, and disconnect
the power cord, or shut off power at the fuse or circuit breaker panel.
d. Do not use the oven cavity for storage purposes. Do not leave paper products, cooking utensils, or
food in the cavity when not in use.
Do not heat any type of baby bottles or baby food containers. Uneven heating may occur and could
cause personal injury.
Avoid heating small-necked containers such as syrup bottles.
Avoid using corrosive and vapors, such as sulfide and chloride.
Liquids heated in certain shaped containers (especially cylindrical-shaped containers) may become overheated. The liquid may splash out with a loud noise during or after heating or when adding ingredients
(instant coffee, etc.) resulting in harm to the oven and possible injury. In all containers, for best results, stir
the liquid several times before heating. Always stir liquid several times between reheatings.

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 color. The most commonIy used
browning sauces are Worcestershire sauce, soya
sauce and barbecue sauce. Since relatively small
amounts of browning sauces are added to foods, the
original flavors of recipes are not altered.
Covering: A cover traps heat and steam which
causes food to cook more quickly. You may either
use a lid or microwave clingfilm with the corners folded
back to prevent splitting.

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 5F°(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
microwave oven. Usually 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 food to finish
cooking and also helps flavors blend and develop.

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 food 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.
Elevating: Thick or dense foods are often elevated

SHIELDING
Arrange individual foods, such as baked potatoes,
cupcakes, and hors d'oeuvres in a circle and at least
1 inch apart. This will help the food cook more evenly.
To
cover
portions of rectangular or square
dishes from overcooking, you may need to shield
them with small strips of aluminum foil to block the
microwaves. You can also cover poultry legs and
wing tips with foil to keep them from overcooking.
Always keep foil at least 1 inch from oven walls

Always use the metal rack when convection baking. place food directly on rack or place in metal
tray and then place tray on rack.
Aluminum pans conduct heat quickly. For most convection baking, light, shiny finishes give best results
because they prevent overbrowning in the time it
takes to cook the center areas. Pans with dull (satinfinish) bottoms are recommended for cake pans and
pie pans for best bottom browning.

Do not use recycled paper products since they may contain impurities which may cause sparks and/or
fires when used in cooking.
Do not rinse the turntable by placing it in water just after cooking. This may cause breakage or damage.
Small amounts of food require shorter cooking or heating time. If normal times are allowed they may
overheat and burn.

food should be covered with plastic film, for heating or cooking, as detailed in microwave cook books.
The oven must never be used if the door sealing is not in good working order.
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 formation of steam
bubbles. A fountain of hot liquid can spring up out of the container explosively.
If smoke is observed keep the oven door closed and switch off or disconnect the oven from the power
supply.
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.
