ACCESSORIES
HOW A MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS
Depending on the model that you have purchased, you are supplied with several
accessories that can be used in a variety of ways.
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy released enables
food to be cooked or reheated without changing either the form or the colour.
2.Turntable, to be placed on the roller ring with the centre
fitting on to the coupler.
Purpose: The turntable serves as the main cooking
surface; it can be easily removed for cleaning.
You can use your microwave oven to:
• Defrost
• Reheat
• Cook
Cooking principle.
1. The microwaves generated by the magnetron reflected at
cavity and are distributed uniformly as the food rotates on
the turntable. The food is thus cooked evenly.
03 OVEN FEATURES
1. Roller ring, to be placed in the centre of the oven.
Purpose: The roller ring supports the turntable.
2. The microwaves are absorbed by the food up to a depth of
about 1 inch (2.5 cm). Cooking then continues as the heat is
dissipated within the food.
3. Cooking times vary according to the container used and the
properties of the food:
• Quantity and density
• Water content
• Initial temperature (refrigerated or not)
As the centre of the food is cooked by heat dissipation, cooking continues even
when you have taken the food out of the oven. Standing times specified in recipes
and in this booklet must therefore be respected to ensure:
• Even cooking of the food right to the centre.
• The same temperature throughout the food.

Arrangement
Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or chops, with the thicker,
meatier parts toward the outside of the turntable where they receive more microwave
energy. To prevent overcooking, place thin or delicate parts toward the center of the
turntable.
Shielding
Shield food with narrow strips of aluminum foil to prevent overcooking. Areas that need
shielding include poultry wing-tips, the ends of poultry legs, and corners of square baking
dishes. Use only small amounts of aluminum foil. Larger amounts can damage your oven.
May cause arcing or fire.
Paper
• Plates, cups,
napkins and
kitchen paper
• Recycled paper
Stirring
Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetables while cooking to distribute heat evenly.
Food at the outside of the dish absorbs more energy and heats more quickly, so stir from
the outside to the center. The oven will turn off when you open the door to stir your food.
✗
Turning
Turn foods over midway through cooking to expose all parts to microwave energy. This is
especially important with large items such as roasts.
Standing
Foods cooked in the microwave build up internal heat and continue to cook for a few
minutes after the oven stops. Let foods stand to complete cooking, especially foods such
as roasts and whole vegetables. Roasts need this time to complete cooking in the center
without overcooking the outer areas. All liquids, such as soup or hot chocolate, should be
shaken or stirred when cooking is complete. Let liquids stand a moment before serving.
When heating baby food, stir well and test the temperature before serving.
Adding moisture
Microwave energy is attracted to water molecules. Food that is uneven in moisture
content should be covered or allowed to stand so that the heat disperses evenly. Add a
small amount of water to dry food to help it cook.
: Unsafe

Auto sensor cook
The Auto Sensor allows you to cook your food automatically by detecting the amount of
moistures generated from the food while cooking.
• When cooking food, many kinds of moistures are generated. The Auto Sensor
determines the proper time and power level by detecting these moistures from the
food, eliminating the need to set the cooking time and power level.
• When you cover a container with its lid or plastic wrap during Sensor Cooking,
the Auto Sensor will detect the moistures generated after the container has been
saturated with steam.
• Shortly before cooking ends, the remaining cooking time will begin its count down.
This will be a good time for you to rotate or stir the food for even cooking if it is
necessary.
• Before auto sensor cooking food may be seasoned with herbs, spices or browning
sauces. A word of caution though, salt or sugar may cause burn spots on food so
these ingredients should be added after cooking.
Utensils & cover for sensor cooking
• To obtain good cooking results with this function, follow the directions for selecting
appropriate containers and covers in the charts in this book.
• Always use microwave-safe containers and cover them with their lids or with plastic
wrap. When using plastic wrap, turn back one corner to allow steam to escape at the
proper rate.
• Always cover with the lid intended for the utensil being used. If the utensil does not
have its own lid, use plastic wrap.
• Fill containers at least half full.
• Foods that require stirring or rotating should be stirred or turned toward the end of
the Sensor Cook cycle, after the time has started to count down on the display.
Important
• It is not advisable to use the auto sensor cooking feature on a continuous cooking
operation, i.e. one cooking operation immediately after another.
• Install the oven in a well ventilated location for proper cooling and airflow and to
ensure the sensor will operate accurately.
• To avoid poor results, do not use the Auto sensor when the room ambient
temperature is too high or too low.
• Do not use volatile detergent to clean your oven. Moisture resulting from this
detergent may affect the sensor.
• Avoid placing the oven near high moisture or gas emitting appliances, since this will
interfere with the proper performance of the Auto Sensor.
• Always keep the inside of the oven clean. Wipe all spills with a damp cloth.
• This oven is designed for household use only.
06 COOKING TECHNIQUES
General tips
• Dense foods, such as potatoes, take longer to heat than lighter foods. Foods with a
delicate texture should be heated at a low power level to avoid becoming tough.
• Altitude and the type of cookware you are using can affect cooking time. When using
a new recipe, use the minimum cooking time and check the food occasionally to
prevent overcooking.
• Foods with a non-porous skin such as potatoes or hot dogs, should be pierced to
prevent bursting.
• Frying with heating oil or fat is not recommended. Fat and oil can suddenly boil over
and cause severe burns.
• Some ingredients heat faster than others. For example, the jelly inside a jelly
doughnut will be hotter than the dough. Keep this in mind to avoid burns.
• Home canning in the microwave oven is not recommended because all harmful
bacteria may not be destroyed by the microwave heating process.
• Although microwaves do not heat the cookware, the heat from the food is often
transferred to the cookware. Always use pot holders when removing food from the
microwave and instruct children to do the same.
• Making candy in the microwave is not recommended as candy can heat to very high
temperatures. Keep this in mind to avoid injury.

Food
Guide for manual defrosting
Microwaves are an excellent way of defrosting frozen food. Microwaves gently defrost
frozen food in a short period of time. This can be of great advantage, if unexpected
guests suddenly show up. Frozen poultry must be thoroughly thawed before cooking.
Remove any metal ties and take it out of any wrapping to allow thawed liquid to drain
away. Put the frozen food on a microwave-safe plate without cover. Turn over half
way, drain off any liquid and remove any giblets as soon as possible. Check the food
occasionally to make sure that it does not feel warm. If smaller and thinner parts of
the frozen food start to warm up, they can be shield by wrapping very small strips of
aluminum foil around them during defrosting. Should poultry start to warm up on the
outer surface, stop thawing and allow it to stand for 30 minutes before continuing. Leave
the meat, poultry and fish to stand in order to complete defrosting. The standing time
for complete defrosting will vary depending on the quantity defrosted. Please refer to the
table below.
Hint:
Flat food defrosts better than thick and smaller quantities need less time
than bigger ones. Remember this hint while freezing and defrosting food.
For defrosting of frozen food with a temperature of about -18 to -20 °C,
use the following table as a guide. All frozen food should be defrosted
using defrosting power level (30 %).

Guide for cooking seafood in your microwave
Guide for cooking vegetables in your microwave
•
•
•
•
• Vegetables should be washed just before cooking. Often, no extra water is needed. If
dense vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and green beans are being cooked, add
about ¼ cup water.
• Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.) will cook faster than larger ones.
• Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or corn on the cob, should be
arranged in a circle on the turntable before cooking. They will cook more evenly if turned
over after half the cooking time.
• Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli with the stem ends pointing towards
the edge of the dish and the tips toward the center.
• When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with a lid or vented microwavable
plastic wrap.
• Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash, eggplant, etc., should have their
skin pricked in several spots before cooking to prevent them from bursting.
• For more even cooking, stir or rearrange whole vegetables halfway through the cooking
time.
• Generally, the denser the food, the longer the standing time. (Standing time refers to the
time necessary for dense, large foods and vegetables to finish cooking after they come out
of the oven.) A baked potato can stand on the counter for five minutes before cooking is
completed, while a dish of peas can be served immediately.
Cook fish it flakes easily with a fork.
Place seafood on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a microwave-safe dish.
Use aluminium foil to thin areas, or areas that start to overcook.
Do not overcook seafood : Check it at minimum cooking time.
