Using this Instruction Booklet
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
Inside the cover you will find a quick look-up guide explaining four
basic cooking operations:
• Cooking food
• Auto Power Defrosting 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.
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.
☛
✉
❉
Important
Note
Caution
1. DO NOT use any metallic cookware in the microwave oven:
• Metallic containers
• Dinnerware with gold or silver trimmings
• Skewers, forks, etc.
Reason: Electric arcing or sparking may occur and may damage the oven.
2. DO NOT heat:
• Airtight or vacuum-sealed bottles, jars, containers
Ex) Baby food jars
• Airtight food.
Ex) Eggs, nuts in shells, tomatoes
Reason: The increase in pressure may cause them to explode.
Tip:
Remove lids and pierce skins, bags, etc.
3. DO NOT operate the microwave oven when it is empty.
Reason: The oven walls may be damaged.
Tip:
Leave a glass of water inside the oven at all times. The water will
absorb the microwaves if you accidentally set the oven going when
it is empty.
Turn
PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY
4. DO NOT cover the rear ventilation slots with cloths or paper.
Reason: The cloths or paper may catch fire as hot air is evacuated from the
oven.
Failure to observe the following safety precautions may result in harmful exposure to
microwave energy.
1. Under no circumstances should any attempt be made to operate the oven with
the door open or to tamper with the safety interlocks (door latches) or to insert
anything into the safety interlock holes.
2. Do not place any object between the oven door and front face or allow food or
cleaner residues to accumulate on sealing surfaces. Ensure that the door and
door sealing surfaces are kept clean by wiping after use first with a damp cloth
and then with a soft dry cloth.
3. Do not operate the oven if it is damaged until it has been repaired by a
qualified microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer. It is
particularly important that the oven door closes properly and that there is no
damage to the:
(1) Door, door seals and sealing surfaces
(2) Door hinges (broken or loose)
(3) Power cable
4. The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone other than a properly
qualified microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer.
5. ALWAYS use oven gloves when removing a dish from the oven.
Reason: Some dishes absorb microwaves and heat is always transferred
from the food to the dish.The dishes are therefore hot.
6. DO NOT touch heating elements or interior oven walls.
Reason: These walls may be hot enough to burn even after cooking has
finished, even though they do not appear to be so. Do not allow
inflammable materials to come into contact with any interior area of
the oven. Let the oven cool down first.
7. To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
• Do not store flammable materials in the oven
• Remove wire twist ties from paper or plastic bags
• Do not use your microwave oven to dry newspapers.
• If smoke is observed, keep the oven door closed and switch off or
disconnect the oven from the power supply

jlY`^^uT\†niU”GGwˆŽŒG\GG{œŒš‹ˆ SGu–Œ”‰Œ™GY\SGYWWZGG]aW[Gwt
Safety Precautions(continued)
8. Take particular care when heating liquids and baby foods.
• 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.
• Take care when handling the container after heating. You may burn
yourself if thecontainer is too hot.
• A risk of delayed eruptive boiling exists.
• To prevent delayed boiling and possible scalding, you should put a plastic
spoon or glass stick into the beverages and stir before, during and after
heating.
Reason: During the heating of liquids the boiling point can be delayed; this
means that eruptive boiling can start after the container is removed
from the oven. You may scald yourself.
• In the event of scalding, follow these FIRST AID instructions:

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
During cooking, you should look into the oven from time to time when food is being
heated or cooked in disposable containers of plastic, paper or other combustible
materials.
IMPORTANT
Young children should NEVER be allowed to use or play with the microwave oven. Nor
should they be left unattended near the microwave oven when it is in use. Items of
interest to children should not be stored or hidden just above the oven.
WARNING:
If the door or door seals are damaged, the oven must not be operated until it has been
repaired by a competent person.
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.
WARNING:
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.
ALWAYS check the temperature of baby food or milk before giving it to
the baby.
NEVER heat a baby’s bottle with the teat on, as the bottle may explode if
overheated.
It is hazardous for anyone other than a comperent person to carry out any service or
repair operation which involves the removal of a cover which gives protection against
exposure to microwave energy.
WARNING:
Liquids and other foods must not be heated in sealed containers since they are liable
to explode.
9. Be careful not to damage the power cable.
• Do not immerse the power cable or plug in water and keep the power
cable away from heated surfaces.
• Do not operate this appliance if it has a damaged power cable or plug.
WARNING:
Only allow children to use the oven without supervision when adequate instructions
have been given so that the child is able to use the oven in a safe way and
understands the hazards of improper use.
10. Stand at arm’s length from the oven when opening the door.
Reason: The hot air or steam released may cause scalding.
11. Keep the inside of the oven clean.
Reason: Food particles or spattered oils stuck to oven walls or floor can
cause paint damage and reduce the efficiency of the oven.
12. You may notice a “Clicking” sound during operation(especially when the oven
is in defrosting).
Reason: This sound is normal when the electrical power output is changing.
13. When the microwave oven is operating without any load, the power will be cut
off automatically for safety. You can operate the oven normally after letting it
stand for over 30 minutes.

Using the Crusty Plate (CE2977NT)
Crusty Plate Setting (CE2977NT)
Your Samsung microwave oven has a crusty plate as an additional
accessory.
This crusty plate allows you to brown food not only on the top with the
grill, but also the bottom of the food turns crispy and brown due to the
high tempera-ture of the crusty plate. Several items which you can
prepare on the crusty plate can be found in the chart (see next page).
The crusty plate can also be used for bacon, eggs, sausages, etc.
We recommend to preheat the crusty plate directly on the turn-table.
Preheat the crusty plate with the 600W+Grill(
) function and follow

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
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
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.
Foods 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 normal-ly 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.

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.
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 (900 W).
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.

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.

DEFROSTING
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 halfway, 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:
All frozen food should be defrosted using defrosting power level (180 W).

Meat
Minced
beef
For defrosting of frozen food with a temperature of about -18 to - 20 °C, use the
following table as a guide.
First, put chicken pieces first skin-side
down, whole chicken first breast-sidedown on a flat ceramic plate. Shield
the thinner parts like wings and ends
with aluminium foil. Turn over after
half of defrosting time!

GRILL
Grill Guide for frozen food
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.
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.
Use the power levels and times in this table as guide lines 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 plas-tic
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.
