Correct disposal of this product
(waste electrical & electronic equipment)
IMPORTANT NOTE :
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug
incorporating a fuse.
The value of the fuse is indicated on the pin face of the plug and, if it
requires replacing, a fuse approved to BS1363 of the same rating must be
used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted if the cover is detachable. If
a replacement fuse cover is required, it must be of the same colour as the
pin face of the plug.
Replacement covers are available from your Dealer. If the fitted plug is not
suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough
to reach a power point, you should obtain a suitable safety approved
extension lead or consult your Dealer for assistance. However, if there is no
alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose
of the plug. Do not connect the plug to a mains socket, as there is a risk of
shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
Wiring instructions
WARNING THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.

power cord are not damaged before
use. If you have any reason to remove
the moulded plug from this appliance,
immediately remove the fuse and
dispose of the plug.
Do not connect the plug to a mains
socket under any circumstances as
there is a danger of electric shock.
CIRCUITS : Your microwave oven
should be operated on a separate
circuit from other appliances. Failure to
do this may cause the circuit breaker
to trip, the fuse to blow, or the food to
cook more slowly.
Cooking instructions on food packaging
Microwave Symbols
On the front of your oven there is a microwave oven symbol, as shown
below.
This symbol has been introduced for your benefit when cooking or
reheating packaged food.
Packaged food is also, increasingly, using a microwave symbol similar to
the one below.
When you see this Symbol on food packaging, the cooking instructions are
based on either the IEC Power Output Rating, or the Reheating Categories
A, B, C, D or E.
800W
Cooking instructions
The IEC Power Output rating is an internationally standardised rating, so all
microwave manufacturers now use the same method of measuring power
output.
If food packaging gives cooking instructions based on IEC Power ratings,
set cooking times according to the IEC Power of your oven.
For example :
If the cooking instructions are based on a 650 W oven, then you will need to
reduce some cooking time for the MS23F301E**, MS23F302E** (800 W)
Ready meals are now very convenient and popular. These are meals which
are already prepared and cooked by the food manufacturer, and then
frozen, chilled or vacuum sealed for long life.
Increasingly, heating times for such ready meals are being based on the
Heating Categories A, B, C, D and E.
On this instance, simply match the heating category of your oven to the
instructions on the food package, and set your timer accordingly.
For example :
If the heating instructions are 3 minutes on HIGH for a D category oven,
then you will need to set your timer for less than 3 minutes on HIGH for the
MS23F301E**, MS23F302E** (E category).
Always remember that cooking instructions are intended only as a
guide. If you have followed the instructions and the food is still not
piping hot throughout, simply return it to the oven and cook it until it is.

Handling of power steam cooker
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.
Cookware
Aluminum foil
Microwave-Safe
Comments
✓✗
Can be used in small
quantities to protect areas
against overcooking. Arcing
can occur if the foil is too close
to the oven wall or if too much
foil is used.
Browning plate
✓
Do not preheat for more than
eight minutes.
China and
earthenware
✓
Porcelain, pottery, glazed
earthenware and bone china
