Before you start
Sound On/Off
About microwave energy
You can turn on or off the key tone, beep, or alarm. This setting is available only in
Standby state (when the current time is displayed).
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves. The oven uses the prebuilt
magnetron to generate microwaves which are used to cook or reheat food without
deforming or discolouring the food.
To mute the sound, hold down
for
3 seconds. “OFF” appears on the display.
To unmute the sound, hold down
again
for 3 seconds. “On” appears on the display.
Before you start
Energy saving
Energy save mode saves electricity when the oven is not being used.
To reduce power consumption, hold down
for 3 seconds. The display and all button
lights turn off. This setting is available only
in Standby state (when the current time is
displayed).
To disable Energy save mode, open the
door or press any button.
1.The microwaves generated by the
magnetron are distributed uniformly
through the whirling distribution system.
This is why the food is cooked evenly.
2.The microwaves are absorbed down to
the food up to a depth of approx. 2.5 cm.
Then, the microwaves are dissipated
inside the food as cooking continues.
3.The cooking time is affected by the
following conditions of the food.
•Quantity and density
•Moisture content
•Initial temperature (especially, when
frozen)
NOTE
The cooked food keeps heat in its core
after cooking is complete. This is why you
must respect the standing time specified in
this manual, which ensures cooking evenly
down to the core.
NOTE
•When setting the oven after 10 minutes of user inactivity, the oven cancels any
ongoing operation and enters Standby state.
•If the oven is paused for over 25 minutes while cooking, the oven enters Standby
state.

Microwave cooking guide
General guidelines
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.
Covering during cooking
Food should be covered during cooking, as the evaporated water rises as steam
and contributes to the cooking process. Food can be covered in different ways such
as with a ceramic plate, plastic cover or microwave suitable cling film.
Standing times
After cooking, it is important to let food stand for the recommended standing time
to allow the temperature to even out within the food.
Cooking guide for frozen vegetables
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. Keep covered during
standing time.

Instructions
Arranging and covering
Avoid reheating large items such as joints of meat since they tend to overcook
and dry out before the centre is piping hot. You will have more success reheating
smaller pieces. Keeping food covered while heating will also help prevent drying.
Power levels
Different power levels can be used for reheating foods.
In general, for large quantities of delicate food or foods that heat up quickly, such
as mince pies, it is better to use a lower power level.
Stirring
Stir well or turn food over during reheating for best results. When possible, stir
again before serving. Stirring is especially important when heating liquids.
Cooking Smart
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. Avoid overheating. If uncertain, it is preferable to
underestimate cooking time. Then extra heating time can be added, if necessary.
Always make sure that 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.
Reheating liquids
Take special care when heating liquids. To prevent eruptive boiling and possible
scalding, place a spoon or glass stick in the beverage. Stir during heating and
always stir after heating. Allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the
oven has been switched off to allow the temperature to even out.

serving temperature is between 30-40 °C.
Baby milk
Pour milk into a sterilised glass bottle. Reheat uncovered. Never heat a baby’s
bottle with the nipple on, as the bottle may explode if overheated. Shake
well before standing time and again before serving. Always carefully check
the temperature of baby milk or food before serving. Recommended serving
temperature is 37 °C.

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 a 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, press STOP 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 on the next
page.
Flat food is defrosted better than thicker items, 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.
Hint:
Frozen foods should be defrosted using defrosting power level (180 W).
Place food on ceramic tray, insert ceramic tray in shelf level 1.
