appliance.
Safety instructions
Ensure that the power voltage, frequency and current are the same as those of the product
specifications.
Plug the power plug into the wall socket firmly. Do not use a multiple plug adapter, an
extension cord or an electric transformer.
Do not hook the power cord on a metal object, insert the power cord between the objects or
behind the oven.
Do not use a damaged power plug, damaged power cord or loose wall socket. When the
power plug or power cord is damaged, contact your nearest service centre.

Do not place objects on the oven, inside or on the door of the oven.
Do not spray volatile material such as insecticide onto the surface of the oven.
Do not store flammable materials in the oven. Take special care when heating dishes or
drinks that contain alcohol as alcohol vapours may contact a hot part of the oven.
Keep children away from the door when opening or closing it as they may bump themselves
on the door or catch their fingers in the door.
WARNING: 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.
Do not put the tray or rack in water shortly after cooking because it may cause breakage or
damage of the tray or rack.
Do not operate the microwave oven for deep fat frying because the oil temperature cannot
be controlled. This could result in a sudden boil over of the hot liquid.

CAUTION
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.
Safety instructions
Remove wire twist ties from paper or plastic bags.
Reason: Electric arcing or sparking may occur and may damage the oven.
Do not use your microwave oven to dry papers or clothes.
Use shorter times for smaller amounts of food to prevent overheating and burning food.
Do not immerse the power cable or power plug in water and keep the power cable away
from heat.
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 inshells, tomatoes etc.
Do not cover the ventilation slots with cloth or paper. They may catch fire as hot air escapes
from the oven. The oven may also overheat and switch itself off automatically, and will
remain off until it cools sufficiently.
Always use oven mitts when removing a dish from the oven to avoid unintentional burns.
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 microwave oven when it is empty. The microwave oven will automatically
shut down for 30 minutes for safety purposes. We recommend placing a glass of water inside
the oven at all times to absorb microwave energy in case the microwave oven is started
accidentally.

Oven use
How a microwave oven works
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy released enables food to
be cooked or reheated without the foods form or colour changing.
You can use your microwave oven to:
• Defrost (manual & auto)
• Cook
• Reheat
Cooking Principle.
Oven use
1. The microwaves generated by the
magnetron 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
recipient used and the properties of the
food:
• Quantity and density
• Water content
• Initial temperature (refrigerated or not)
NOTE
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.

other than the maximum is used, the water
takes longer to boil.

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
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:
Covering during 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.
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.
Food suitable for microwave cooking:
Cooking guide
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).
Standing times
After cooking is over food the standing time
is important to allow the temperature to
even out within the food.
