CHECKING THAT YOUR OVEN IS OPERATING
CORRECTLY
HOW A MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy released enables
food to be cooked or reheated without changing either the form or the colour.
You can use your microwave oven to:
• Defrost
• Reheat
• Cook
The following simple procedure enables you to check that your oven is working correctly
at all times. If you are in doubt, refer to the section entitled “Troubleshooting” on the
page 37.
Open the oven door by pulling the handle on the upper side of the door.
Place a glass of water on the turntable. Close the door.
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.
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.
1. Press the Start/+30s button and set the time to 4 or
5 minutes, by pressing the Start/+30s button the
appropriate number of times.
Result: The oven heats the water for 4 or 5 minutes. The
water should then be boiling.
The oven must be plugged into an appropriate wall socket. The turntable must be
in position in the oven. If a power level other than the maximum (100 % - 900 W) is
used, the water takes longer to boil.
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

05 COOKWARE GUIDE
To cook food in the microwave oven, the microwaves must be able to penetrate the food,
without being reflected or absorbed by the dish used.
Care must therefore be taken when choosing the cookware. If the cookware is marked
microwave-safe, you do not need to worry.
The following table lists various types of cookware and indicates whether and how they
should be used in a microwave oven.

cooking guide
MICROWAVES
Cooking Guide for frozen vegetables
Microwave energy actually penetrates food, attracted and absorbed by its water, fat and
sugar content.
The microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move rapidly. The rapid movement of
these molecules creates friction and the resulting heat cooks the food.
Use a suitable glass pyrex bowl with lid. Cook covered for the minimum time – see table.
Continue cooking to get the result you prefer.
Stir twice during cooking and once after cooking. Add salt, herbs or butter after cooking.
Cover during standing time.
Food
COOKING
Cookware for microwave cooking:
Cookware must allow microwave energy to pass through it for maximum efficiency.
Microwaves are reflected by metal, such as stainless steel, aluminium and copper, but
they can penetrate through ceramic, glass, porcelain and plastic as well as paper and
wood. So food must never be cooked in metal containers.
Food suitable for microwave cooking:
Many kinds of food are suitable for microwave cooking, including fresh or frozen
vegetables, fruit, pasta, rice, grains, beans, fish, and meat. Sauces, custard, soups,
steamed puddings, preserves, and chutneys can also be cooked in a microwave oven.
Generally speaking, microwave cooking is ideal for any food that would normally be
prepared on a hob. Melting butter or chocolate, for example (see the chapter with tips,
techniques and hints).
Covering during cooking
To cover the food during cooking is very important, as the evaporated water rises as
steam and contributes to cooking process. Food can be covered in different ways: e.g.
with a ceramic plate, plastic cover or microwave suitable cling film.
Standing times
After cooking is over food the standing time is important to allow the temperature to even
out within the food.

Your microwave oven will reheat food in a fraction of the time that conventional ovens
hobs normally take.
Use the power levels and reheating times in the following chart as a guide. The times in
the chart consider liquids with a room temperature of about +18 to +20 °C or a chilled
food with a temperature of about +5 to +7 °C.
Arranging and covering
Avoid reheating large items such as joint of meat - they tend to overcook and dry out
before the centre is piping hot. Reheating small pieces will be more successful.
Power levels and stirring
Some foods can be reheated using 900 W power while others should be reheated using
600 W, 450 W or even 300 W.
Check the tables for guidance.
In general, it is better to reheat food using a lower power level, if the food is delicate, in
large quantities, or if it is likely to heat up very quickly (mince pies, for example).
Stir well or turn food over during reheating for best results. When possible, stir again
before serving.
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby foods. To prevent eruptive boiling
of liquids and possible scalding, stir before, during and after heating. Keep them in the
microwave oven during standing time. We recommend putting a plastic spoon or glass
stick into the liquids. Avoid overheating (and therefore spoiling) the food. It is preferable to
underestimate cooking time and add extra heating time, if necessary.
Heating and standing times
When reheating food for the first time, it is helpful to make a note of the time taken - for
future reference.
Always make sure that the reheated food is piping hot throughout.
Allow food to stand for a short time after reheating - to let the temperature even out.
The recommended standing time after reheating is 2-4 minutes, unless another time is
recommended in the chart.
Take particular care when heating liquids and baby food. See also the chapter with the
safety precautions.
REHEATING LIQUIDS
Always allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has been switched off
to allow the temperature to even out. Stir during heating, if necessary, and ALWAYS stir
after heating. To prevent eruptive boiling and possible scalding, you should put a spoon
or glass stick into the beverages and stir before, during and after heating.

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 dish 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 aluminium foil around them during defrosting.
Should poultry start to warm up on the outer surface, stop thawing and allow it to stand
for 20 minutes before continuing.
Leave the fish, meat and poultry 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.

Should be flameproof and may include metal. Do not use any type of plastic cookware,
as it can melt.
Food suitable for grilling:
Chops, sausages, steaks, hamburgers, bacon and gammon rashers, thin fish portions,
sandwiches and all kinds of toast with toppings.
Important remark:
Whenever the grill only mode is used, please remember that food must be placed on the

Food suitable for microwave + grill cooking:
Food suitable for combination mode cooking include all kinds of cooked food which
need reheating and browning (e.g. baked pasta), as well as foods which require a short
cooking time to brown the top of the food. Also, this mode can be used for thick food
portions that benefit from a browned and crispy top (e.g. chicken pieces, turning them
over half way through cooking). Please refer to the grill table for further details.
Important remark:
Whenever the combination mode (microwave + grill) is used, the food should be placed
on the high rack, unless another instruction is recommended. Please refer to the
instructions in the following chart.
The food must be turned over, if it is to be browned on both sides.
