products such as whole eggs and sealed containers-for example, closed glass jars-may
explode and should not be heated in this oven.
Use this 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 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.
Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter.
Either-(a) When cleaning surfaces of door and oven that comes together on closing the door, use only
mild, nonabrasive 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).
To reduce the risk of fire in the oven 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 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 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. 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

Foods that are cooked for a shorter period of time

browning sauces are Worcestershire sauce, soya
sauce and barbecue sauce. Since relatively small
amounts of browning sauces are added to foods, the
original flavour of recipes are not altered.
Covering: A cover traps heat and steam which
causes food to cook more quickly. You may either

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 OF(3 OC) and 15 OF (8 OC)
during standing time.
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.

prepared as with conventional cooking.
Season if desired. Always thoroughly defrost meat
before cooking.
Place the meat on a microwave roasting rack or
microwave-proof plate and place on the turntable.
Cook according to the Meat Cooking Chart (below).
Use the longer time for large meats and the shorter
time for smaller meats. For thicker chops, use the
longer time.

turntable.
5. Cook
according to the instructions in the Poultry
Cooking Chart below. Turn over halfway through the
cooking time. Because of its shape, poultry has a
tendency to cook unevenly, especially in very bony
parts.Turning during roasting helps to cook these
areas evenly.
Let stand for 5-10 minutes wrapped in foil after
cooking before carving. The standing time is very
important, as it completes the cooking process.
Make sure poultry is thoroughly cooked before eating.
Whole poultry is completely cooked when the juices
run clear from the inside thigh when it is pierced with
a sharp knife. Poultry pieces should be pierced with
a sharp knife through the thickest part to ensure that
the juices are clear and the flesh is firm.
