Microwave operation precautions
Microwave warning
Microwave heating of beverages may result in delayed eruptive boiling; always use
caution when handling the container. Always allow beverages to stand at least 20
seconds before handling. If necessary, stir during heating. Always stir after heating.
In the event of scalding, follow these First Aid instructions:
1. Immerse the scalded area in cold water for at least 10 minutes.
3. Do not apply any creams, oils, or lotions.
To avoid damaging the tray or rack, do not put the tray or rack in water shortly after
cooking.
Do not use the oven for deep fat frying because the oil temperature cannot be controlled.
This could result in a sudden boil over of hot oils.
Microwave oven precautions
Only use microwave-safe utensils. Do not use metallic containers, gold or silver trimmed
dinnerware, skewers, etc.
Remove wire twist ties. Electric arcing may occur.
Do not use the oven to dry papers or clothes.
Use shorter times for small amounts of food to prevent overheating or burning.
Keep the power cord and power plug away from water and heat sources.
To avoid the risk of explosion, do not heat eggs with shells or hard-boiled eggs. Do not
heat airtight or vacuum-sealed containers, nuts, tomatoes, etc.
Do not cover the ventilation slots with cloth or paper. This is a fire hazard. The oven may
overheat and turn off automatically and will remain off until it cools sufficiently.
Always use oven mitts when removing a dish.
Stir liquids halfway during heating or after heating ends and allow the liquid stand at least
20 seconds after heating to prevent eruptive boiling.
Stand at arms length from the oven when opening the door to avoid getting scalded by
escaping hot air or steam.
Do not operate the oven when it is empty. The oven will automatically shut down for 30
minutes for safety purposes. We recommend placing a glass of water inside the oven at

01 SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
The manufacturer of this oven will not accept any liability for damage to
persons or material for non observance of these requirements.
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS ON FOOD PACKAGING
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 MC28H5013** (900 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
MC28H5013** (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.

oven use
ACCESSORIES
Depending on the model that you have purchased, you are supplied with several
accessories that can be used in a variety of ways.
HOW A MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS
1. Roller ring, to be placed in the centre of the oven.
Purpose: The roller ring supports the turntable.
Cooking principle.
3. High rack, Low rack, to be placed on the turntable.
Purpose: The metal racks can be used to cook two dishes
at the same time. A small dish may be placed
on the turntable and a second dish on the
rack. The metal racks can be used in grill,
convection and combination cooking.
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.
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.

03 OVEN FEATURES / OVEN USE
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.
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
CHECKING THAT YOUR OVEN IS OPERATING
CORRECTLY
SETTING THE TIME
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 38.

cookware guide
Cookware
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.
Do not preheat for more than
8 minutes.
Porcelain, pottery, glazed
earthenware and bone china are
usually suitable, unless decorated
with a metal trim.

MICROWAVES
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.

05 COOKWARE GUIDE / COOKING GUIDE
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.
Cooking Guide for fresh vegetables
Use a suitable glass bowl with lid. Add 30-45 ml cold water (2-3 tbsp) for every 250 g
unless another water quantity is recommended – see table. Cook covered for the
minimum time – see table. Continue cooking to get the result you prefer. Stir once during
and once after cooking. Add salt, herbs or butter after cooking. Cover during a standing
time of 3 minutes.
Hint:
Cut the fresh vegetables into even sized pieces. The smaller they are cut,
the quicker they will cook.

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.

Pasta:
Use a large glass bowl with lid - rice doubles in volume during cooking.
Cook covered.
After the cooking time is over, stir before standing time and salt or add
herbs and butter.
Remark: the rice may not have absorbed all water after the cooking time
is finished.
Use a large glass bowl. Add boiling water, a pinch of salt and stir well.
Cook uncovered.
Stir occasionally during and after cooking. Cover during standing time
and drain thoroughly afterwards.
REHEATING BABY FOOD
BABY FOOD:
Empty into a deep ceramic plate. Cover with plastic lid. Stir well after reheating! Let stand
for 2-3 minutes before serving. Stir again and check the temperature. Recommended
serving temperature: between 30-40 °C.
BABY MILK:
Pour milk into a sterilised glass bottle. Reheat uncovered. Never heat a baby’s bottle with
teat 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
giving it to the baby. Recommended serving temperature: ca. 37 °C.
REMARK:
Baby food particularly needs to be checked carefully before serving to prevent burns.

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.

The grill-heating element is located underneath the ceiling of the cavity. It operates while
the door is closed and the turntable is rotating. The turntable’s rotation makes the food
brown more evenly. Preheating the grill for 3-5 minutes will make the food brown more
quickly.
Cookware for grilling:
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
high rack, unless another instruction is recommended.
MICROWAVE + GRILL
This cooking mode combines the radiant heat that is coming from the grill with the speed
of microwave cooking. It operates only while the door is closed and the turntable is
rotating. Due to the rotation of the turntable, the food browns evenly. Three combination
modes are available with this model:
600 W + Grill, 450 W + Grill and 300 W + Grill.
Cookware for cooking with microwave + grill
Please use cookware that microwaves can pass through. Cookware should be
flameproof. Do not use metal cookware with combination mode. Do not use any type of
plastic cookware, as it can melt.
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.
