Choosing the heating element position
Grilling
The heating element is used when grilling. There is only one position listed.
We need to tell consumers when it should be placed in the vertical position.
The grill enables you to heat and brown food quickly, without using
microwaves. To this aim, a grill rack is supplied with your microwave oven.
• Horizontal position for grilling or combined microwave + grill cooking.

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.

Cooking Guide for frozen vegetables
Use a suitable glass pyrex bowl with lid. Cook covered for the minimum

Stir twice during cooking and once after cooking. Add salt, herbs or butter
after cooking. Cover during standing time.
ENGLISH
MICROWAVES
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.
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.

REHEATING
REHEATING LIQUIDS
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.
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.
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.
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.
Use the power levels and times in the next table as a guide lines for
reheating.
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.

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.
Plate two meals of each
2 chilled components

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 3-4 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:

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, 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.
The food must be turned over, if it is to be browned on both sides.
