Safety Precautions
You have just purchased a SAMSUNG microwave oven. Your Owner’s
Instructions contain much valuable information on cooking with your
microwave oven:
• Safety precautions
• Suitable accessories and cookware
• Useful cooking tips
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS.
READ CAREFULLY AND KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
Before cooking food or liquids in your microwave oven, please check
that the following safety precautions are taken.
•
Only use utensils that are suitable for use in microwave ovens;
DO NOT use any metallic containers, Dinnerware with gold or silver
trimmings, Skewers, forks, etc.
Remove wire twist ties from paper or plastic bags.
Reason: Electric arcing or sparking may occur and may damage the oven.
• When heating food in plastic or paper containers, keep an eye on the oven
due to the possibility of ignition;
Do not use your microwave oven to dry newspapers or clothes
• If smoke is observed, switch off or unplug the appliance and keep the door
closed in order to stifle any flames;
• Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed eruptive boiling,
therefore care must be taken when handling the container; To prevent this
situation
ALWAYS allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has been
switched off so that the temperature can equalize.
Stir during heating, if necessary, and ALWAYS stir after heating.
In the event of scalding, follow these FIRST AID instructions:
* Immerse the scalded area in cold water for at least 10 minutes.
* Cover with a clean, dry dressing.
* Do not apply any creams, oils or lotions.
• NEVER fill the container to the top and choose a container that is wider at the
top than at the bottom to prevent the liquid from boiling over. Bottles with
narrow necks may also explode if overheated.
NEVER heat a babys bottle with the teat on, as the bottle may explode if
overheated.
• The contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars shall be stirred or shaken
and the temperature checked before consumption, in order to avoid burns;
• Eggs in their shell and whole hard-boiled eggs should not be heated in
microwave ovens since they may explode, even after microwave heating has
ended;
Also do not heat airtight or vacuum-sealed bottles, jars, containers, nuts in
shells, tomatoes etc.
• The oven should be cleaned regularly and any food deposits removed;
• Failure to maintain the oven in a clean condition could lead to deterioration of
the surface that could adversely affect the life of the appliance and possibly
result in a hazardous situation;
• DO NOT cover the ventilation slots with cloths or paper. They may catch fire
as hot air is evacuated from the oven.
The oven may overheat and automatically switch itself off. It will remain
inoperable until it has cooled sufficiently.
•
ALWAYS use oven gloves when removing a dish from the oven to avoid
unintentional burn.
• DO NOT touch heating elements or interior oven walls until the oven be
cooled down.
Inside the cover you will find a quick look-up guide explaining four
basic cooking operations:
• Cooking food
• Auto Power Defrosting of food
• Grilling food
• Adding extra cooking time
At the front of the booklet you will find illustrations of the oven, and
more importantly the control panel, so that you can find the buttons
more easily.
The step-by-step procedures use four different symbols.

MICROWAVES
Food
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.

Cooking Guide for rice and pasta
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, standing time for the food is important to allow the
temperature to even out within the food.

Cooking Guide for fresh vegetables
REHEATING
Use a suitable glass pyrex 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.
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 850 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.
Hint:
Cut the fresh vegetables into even sized pieces. The smaller they
are cut, the quicker they will cook.
All fresh vegetables should be cooked using full microwave power (850 W).

MANUAL DEFROSTING
EN
All frozen food should be defrosted using defrosting power level (180 W).
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.
Food
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.
Meat
Minced beef
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.
Pork steaks
Poultry
Chicken
pieces
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:
Whole
chicken
Flat food defrosts better than thick and smaller quantities need less
time than bigger ones. Remember this hint while freezing and
defrosting food.

GRILL
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 4 minutes will make the
food brown more quickly.
IMPORTANT REMARK:
Whenever the combination mode (microwave + grill) is used, make sure that the
grill heating element is under the ceiling in the horizontal position and not on the
back-wall in the vertical position. The food should be placed on the high rack,
unless another instruction is recommended. Otherwise it has to be placed directly
on the turntable. Please refer to the instructions in the following chart.
Cookware for grilling:
Should be flameproof and may include metal. Do not use any type of plastic
cookware, as it can melt.
The food must be turned over, if it is to be browned on both sides.
Food suitable for grilling:
Chops, sausages, steaks, hamburgers, bacon and gammon rashers, thin fish
portions, sandwiches and all kinds of toast with toppings.
Grill Guide for frozen food
Use the power levels and times in this table as guide lines for grilling.
Fresh Food
IMPORTANT REMARK:
Whenever the grill only mode is used, make sure that the grill-heating element is

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.
