4. Storage of accessories
When the oven is not being used, do not store any
objects other than oven accessories inside the oven
in case it is accidentally turned on. In case of
electronic failure, oven can only be turned off at
outlet.
Caution
1. Before Use
Before using CONVECTION, COMBINATION or
GRILL function for the first time, operate this oven
without food on CONVECTION 250°C for 20 minutes.
This will allow the oil that is used for rust protection to
be burned off. Remove all accessories from the
oven.
Before use, the user should check that utensils are
suitable for use in the microwave ovens.
2. Smoke/Fire
During cooking with MICROWAVE mode, if smoke is
observed, keep the Oven door closed, and switch off
or disconnect the oven from the supply. If materials
inside the oven should ignite, keep oven door closed,
press STOP/RESET pad.
Switch off at outlet. If possible, shut off power at the
fuse or circuit breaker panel.
3. Interference
There is a possibility of a small amount of
interference with weak broadcast signals if the oven
is too close to a radio or TV.
4. Heater Operation
When using HIGH, MEDIUM, LOW and SIMMER
powers, half the Grill elements and the
CONVECTION fan operate to reduce the build up of
condensation. Take care NOT TO TOUCH OVEN
CEILING.
5. Cleaning
Do not clean this appliance with a water jet.
o
Important Information - Read Carefully
1.Heating Times
As MICROWAVE and COMBINATION heating times
are much shorter than other cooking methods, it is
essential that recommended heating times are not
exceeded without first checking the food.
Cooking times given in the charts are approximate.
Factors that may affect cooking times are: starting
temperature, volume, size and shape of foods and
dishes used.
Fire!
If the recommended heating times are exceeded the
food will be spoiled and in extreme circumstances
could catch fire and possibly damage the interior of
the oven. It is critical that the Oven is cleaned
regularly and kept free of excess grease. See Care of
your Oven and Cleaning page 70. Small quantities of food
2.Small Quantities of Foods
Particular attention should be paid to heating small
quantities of food and single items such as pastry and
BREAD ITEMS BY MICROWAVE. Small quantities of
food or foods with low moisture content can burn, dry
ut or catc
E

el sed, press
possible or sh
ut 0
3.Food Components
Foods high in sugar, salt, fats and moisture content
heat faster by Microwave because their properties
attract microwave energy. Denser foods high in protein
and fibre, absorb microwave energy slower which
means a longer heating time.
4.Food High in Fat/Sugar
It is important to correctly set the heating time for food
with a high fat, alcohol and sugar content. If these
foods are heated by microwave for too long they can
6 ignite. NEVER LEAVE UNATTENDED. eg. Doughnuts,
syrup sponge puddings, Christmas puddings and
mince pies.
5.Eggs
Do not boil eggs in their shell and whole hard-boiled
eggs by MICROWAVE. Pressure may build up and the
eggs will explode.
6.Piercing Skins
Potatoes, apples, egg yolks, whole vegetables and
sausages are examples of food with non-porous
skins. These must be pierced using a fork before
cooking by MICROWAVE to prevent bursting. о
О ЕО) |
7.Deep fat frying
Do not attempt to deep fat fry in your oven.
8.Checking Internal Temperature
To ensure the complete destruction of food poisoning
bacteria such as Lysteria and Salmonella, ensure the
internal temperature of the food reaches at least 72°C
when reheating. Use a suitable thermometer with
probe attachment to check the temperature at the end
of the heating time. Heat for a longer time if the
correct temperatures are not reached. DO NOT use a
domestic meat thermometer - use only correctly
calibrated equipment.
Important Information - Read Carefully
9.Liquids
When heating liquids by MICROWAVE, eg. soup, sauces
and beverages, overheating the liquid beyond boiling
point can occur without evidence of bubbling. This could
result in a sudden boil over of the hot liquid. To prevent
this possibility, the following steps should be taken:
a.Avoid using straight-sided containers with narrow
Do no D CD
b. Do not overheat. 1quids
c. Stir the liquid before placing the container in the
oven and again halfway through the heating time.
d. After heating, allow to stand in the oven for a short
time, stirring again before carefully removing the
container.

10.Paper, Plastic
When heating food in plastic or paper containers, check the
oven frequently as these types of containers may ignite if
overheated. See page 25.
Do not use re-cycled paper products, as they may contain
impurities which may cause sparks and/or fires when
used, unless packaging states they are specifically
designed for microwave use.
11.Reheating
It is essential reheated food is served “piping hot” (72°C).
Always check before serving and if in doubt return food to
oven for further heating.
12.Standing Times
Standing times are essential for foods cooked or reheated
by MICROWAVE or COMBINATION. During the stand
time, heat will continue to conduct to the centre to cook
the food completely.
The denser the food, the longer the stand time.
Reheated foods also require a standing time.
13.Accessories
Follow specific instructions in this guide for proper use of
oven accessories and cookware. Failure to do so could
damage the oven.
Take care when removing food and/or accessories from
the oven. The Wire Rack Shelf provided DOES NOT have
a non-tip lock—take care if you pull it out to remove food.
14.Cooking containers
Before use on MICROWAVE and COMBINATION, always
check that containers are suitable. See pages 25 and 46.
DO NOT MICROWAVE sealed containers as they will
explode.
15.Fan motor operation
After using MICROWAVE, CONVECTION,
COMBINATION and GRILL the fan motor always rotates
for approx. 5 minutes to cool the electric components.
This is normal and you can take out food even though fan
motor operates.
16.Baby bottles/jars
Feeding bottles and baby food jars shall be open when
heated and the contents are to be stirred or shaken, and
the temperature is to be checked before consumption, in
order to avoid burns.

How a Microwave Works
The Microwave Oven
mr.

N 7 MAGNETRON
| “N 7 | я
| WAVEGUIDE | + |
- JL me rrr
2 y Transmission
To get the most from your Panasonic Combi it is helpful
to understand how the oven works as a Microwave.
Once connected to an outlet, the electricity flows along
the flex and is converted into microwave energy by the
MAGNETRON. Microwaves are ultra high frequency
waves, and belong to the same category as radio and
television waves. These are directed into the cavity
through the WAVE GUIDE.
When they reach the cavity, the microwaves will behave
in one of three ways:
1. Reflection
They will REFLECT off metal. The inner walls of your
oven are made of stainless steel, so that the microwave
energy can bounce evenly around the cavity. Of course,
the microwaves will also reflect off metal cooking
containers and accessories, such as saucepans and
platters. For this reason, NEVER use the Wire Rack
Shelf on Microwave only.
2. Transmission
The microwaves will TRANSMIT through paper, plastic,
glass and china and, therefore, it is containers made of
these substances that are used in microwave cookery.
3. Absorption
The microwave energy is ABSORBED by the food. The
energy penetrates the outside area of the food causing
the molecules to vibrate over 2,450,000,000 times a
second. This vibration causes the water molecules to
rub against each other producing frictional heat which
cooks this outer part of the food; the heat is then
conducted through the food to cook the centre. Food,
therefore, cooks from the outside, inwards.
SUENO
Standing Time
The heat that builds up on the outside of the food is still
being conducted to the centre, even after the
microwave oven has switched off. This period is know
as the “Standing Time”. The time it takes for the food to
finish cooking will vary depending on its shape, size and
type. For example, a jacket potato will need to stand for
at least 5-10 minutes after the end of the cooking time
and during this time the temperature at the centre will
increase. A pastry pie that has been reheated will only
need a standing time 1-2 minutes for the heat to
distribute evenly.
If the food is put back in the Microwave and heated
again before the standing time has elapsed, the food
can very quickly become overcooked.
Types of Container to use on Microwave
Wood/Wicker
1. Glass
DO USE: Heat Resistant glass e.g. Pyrex
DO NOT USE: Delicate glass, lead crystal which may crack
or arc.
2. China/Ceramics
DO USE: Glazed china dishes, porcelain and ceramic
dishes designed for cooking.
DO NOT USE: Fine bone china dishes with metal patterns.
Jugs with glued handles.
3. Pottery/Earthenware/Stoneware
DO USE: If completely glazed.
DO NOT USE: If unglazed — these dishes can absorb water
which absorbs energy. This makes the dish
hot and increases the heating time.
4. Foil/Metal
DO USE: For reheating only:
Individual portion, open topped foil containers.
Take care the containers do not touch WALLS or
DOOR of oven.
Do not cook in foil containers. Small amounts of
aluminium foil can be used to shield joints of meat
during defrosting — take care that foil doesn't
touch sides or door.
DO NOT USE: Metal platters, Wire Rack Shelf, any dish
with metal pattern or trim. Metal skewers.
DO NOT REUSE FOIL CONTAINERS -
ARCING may occur as they become
Dented/damaged. Do not use Le Crueset
style dishes (Cast iron covered by enamel).
These can be used on convection/
grill .
5. Plastics
DO USE: Durable Polysulfon plastics rather than soft flexible
dishes. Roasting bags (Remove any metal twist ties).
DO NOT USE: Plastic containers if the food has a high
fat/sugar content — distortion or melting may
occur. Plastic food storage bags and
containers eg. Melamine, Margarine, Yoghurt
and Mayonnaise tubs.
6. Covering Films
DO USE: Non plasticiser cling film designed for Microwave
use. Do not allow film to touch food. To prevent
nasty steam burns, pierce film to allow it to
escape and remove film from dish carefully.
DO NOT USE: Film designed only for covering food.
7. Wood/Wicker
DO USE: Wooden skewers designed for food use.
DO NOT USE: Wicker baskets, wooden bowls (with prolonged
use these tend to dry out and may ignite).
8. Paper
DO USE: Disposable, polyester coated paper board dishes
if designed for microwave.
DO NOT USE: Paper napkins (these can ignite), wax coated
cups, recycled products (unless stated
suitable by manufacturer).

Microwave
Reheating by Microwave
The microwave mode of your Panasonic Combi will be most frequently used to reheat food. Although the oven is provided with a
rotating wave guide, all reheating times, and uniformity of heating, will vary according to several factors as below.
1. Choosing the correct reheat time
When heating foods for the first time it is necessary to experiment,
to obtain the correct timings. Standardising portion size and
ensuring refrigeration runs without variation will enable a routine to
be developed for a particular food product. Always remember that
the times given by both microwave and food manufacturers are
approximate and should be used as a guideline.
2. Stirring
Wherever possible stir food halfway through the heating time and
again at the end. This ensures the heat spreads evenly throughout
the food.
3. Is the food safely reheated?
A high level of hygiene is necessary to prevent food poisoning by
such bacteria as Lysteria and Salmonella. Your Panasonic Combi
will heat food to the temperatures required and will do so much
faster than other methods of heating. The Department of Health
has stated that a temperature of 70°C maintained for 2 minutes
will ensure the complete destruction of Lysteria and Salmonella
bacteria and the right heating time, coupled with the standing
time, makes certain the food has been heated correctly.
What you can do - Ensure food has reached a temperature of at
least 72°C. Check the centre and the thickest part of the food with a
food thermometer as these are the last areas to heat. When the
catering operation has been standardised as much as possible, it
will not be necessary to check every dish that passes through the
microwave oven, but an occasional spot check ensures the food is
being served to the highest standards.
4. Standing food before serving
Allow food to stand at the end of the heating time. For small items,
eg. sausage rolls, by the time the dish has been collected and
.served it will have had sufficient standing time. Foods such as meat
pies and plated meals, however, will need 1-2 minutes for the heat
to completely penetrate the centre. Do not be tempted to put the
food back for additional heating time until after the standing time
has been completed; putting the food back too soon will only result
in overcooked and wasted food. The standing time can be used
effectively to add additional foods to the plate, or to garnish
attractively before serving.
Affects of the dish
26
1. Shape
A round dish heats food more evenly than a square dish. The
corners of a square dish receive double microwave energy and
result in bubbling overcooked corners whilst the centre of the food
is cold. Oval dishes give a better result but there may still be areas
of hot bubbling food at the two “ends”.
2. Depth
A shallow dish heats more quickly than a deep dish. Microwave
energy only penetrates the outside of the food. Food in a shallow
dish heats evenly from all directions. In a deep dish the food in the
centre relies on conduction and takes longer to heat.
3. Material
Heavy earthenware and china dishes will slow the heating process
by absorbing some of the heat from the food itself. A thinner, lighter
china is a better choice as this will not impede the cooking time.
4. Glazed finish
Always choose a glazed dish. An unglazed or chipped container
can absorb water when it is washed. As microwave energy is
attracted to moisture the water molecules contained in the china
heat up, not only causing the dish to get hot but also slowing down
the reheating time.
5. Shape of base
If possible, always choose a dish that has rounded rather than
sharp corners at the base to prevent over cooking.
J y Shape of Base
Reheating by Microwave
Affects of the food
2 Headspace
5 § Uneven shapes
Foods wirth skins
1. Starting Temperature
The colder the food the longer it will take to heat to 72°C. Extra
time must be allowed if food has been defrosted as the centre
may still be icy.
2. Headspace
When heating liquids, ensure they do not completely fill their
containers; a head space allows the liquids to be stirred during
and at the end of the heating time without spillage.
3. Covering foods
A container covered with either cling film, a plastic plate cover
or even the lid to the dish, will heat fractionally faster then an
uncovered dish. Do not cover foods which require a drier
texture, such as pastries, as the steam that becomes trapped
under the cover will cause the food to go soggy.
4. Crisp Foods
Reheat pastry and bread items, such as sausage rolls, pies and
croissants, on a plastic rack to reduce the chance of
“sogginess”. The rack allows the air to circulate beneath the
food and remove steam which causes moist, limp pastry. Your
Panasonic Combi offers a COMBINATION facility which will
help crisp pastry items as they reheat.
5. Uneven shapes
When heating uneven shaped pieces of food, place the thick
part of one piece against the thin part of the second. This helps
the food to heat more evenly.
6. Porous Foods/Dense foods
Porous foods reheat more quickly than dense heavy foods.
7. Food with “Skins”
When reheating foods with a skin such as fish, chicken or
baked beans, reduce the power to a lower setting to prevent
the food from heating too quickly and “exploding”.
8. Heating two dishes together
It is possible to reheat two products with the same heating time
together. For example, two Chicken Curries with a reheating
time of 4 minutes each or one Tagliatelle Carbonara and one
Moussaka, both of which have a heating time of 4 minutes
each.
9. Doubling Quantities
A reheating time is based on weight and usually a time is given
for a particular quantity of food, i.e. 11oz Lasagne take 2
minutes. When the number of portions to be heated together
doubles, then the reheating time will need to be increased by
75-100%. Two portions will take 4 minutes 30 seconds to 5
minutes. Generally two lighter textured products such as
pastries will take the shorter time, whilst two denser products
such as Lasagne will take the longer time.
10. Frozen Foods
For speed, some foods can be reheated from frozen but they
must be foods that can be STIRRED eg meat sauce, Chilli con
Carne. Set the total reheat time but open the door to stir
regularly. DO NOT COVER.
AVOID REHEATING solid foods that cannot be stirred, eg
Lasagnes/Shepherds Pies from frozen. Avoid reheating
PLATED MEALS from frozen.

Tips for Reheating your own Homemade Foods
Serving foods prepared inhouse gives a homemade quality to the menu and allows for seasonality. However, for best
results, follow the tips below if they are to be regenerated in your Panasonic Combi.
TY
28
1. Overcooking
Do not overcook vegetables — slightly undercook them, and
they will finish cooking during the reheating time.
2. Sauces
Make any foods in sauces with lighter gravies rather than
heavy, thick ones, as this helps the food heat evenly.
3. Plated Meals
To ensure even heating arrange the single component foods of
a plated meal carefully. Place denser foods, such as whole
vegetables and portions of meat or fish, to the outside of the
plate, and smaller items, towards the centre. Do not pile foods
up but keep them in a single layer; mashed potato should be
spread out rather than mounded up. The food can look
attractive but always give the Microwave a chance to heat
evenly and thoroughly.
4. Vegetables
Dot vegetables with butter and pour gravy over the meat to
prevent drying out and to help with even heating.
5. Rice
Arrange meat sauces served with rice, side by side rather than
in the traditional circle of rice with the sauce in the centre. The
sauce should be flattened slightly, whilst the rice is piled up.
6. Potato Topped Pies
Potato-topped pies and au gratin dishes, eg Cottage Pie, are
difficult to reheat as the consistency of the potato will heat
faster. Always ensure the filling is deeper than the potato.
7. Stirring
Stir any sauce-based foods before heating, particularly if they
have been defrosted. This ensures any icy particles or cold
areas are fully broken up and the food is of an even
temperature.
8. Browning/Finishing Dishes
If you are preparing dishes in bulk for freezing or refrigeration,
don’t forget that because your Panasonic Combi is a
microwave and conventional oven, you can choose to brown
foods at the end of preparation but before storing, or store
unbrowned and reheat on COMBINATION.
9. Heating two dishes together
If you wish to reheat more than one dish, place then side by
side on the base of the cavity and NEVER use the Wire Rack
Shelf for reheating on 2 levels.
10. Heating Times
It is impossible to give the heating time of an individual plated
meal as each will contain a different variety of foods in differing
quantities. Follow the arranging tips already mentioned and
ensure the thickest piece of food has reached 72°C.

Tips for Reheating Commercially Prepared Foods
Always choose a supplier who offers an extensive and well made range of meals, which because prior research has
gone into their products, heats efficiently in the microwave oven.
The majority of distributors of prepared foods supply their dishes frozen. They recommend the dishes are defrosted
prior to reheating. Always follow their instructions carefully.
1. Heating Times
On the following charts, we have listed for your convenience,
many commercially prepared foods. Use the times suggested
for particular foods as a guide only.
2. Containers | 3 y Power Level
Een ones peu EE
A time band is suggested to accommodate the use of different | eee
containers, for example, an earthenware pot will need the | MM: —
longer time to reheat beacause of its thickness, whilst a plastic
or heat resistant glass will take slightly less time.
3. Power Level
On some more solid dishes, such as Lasagne and Cottage Pie,
it may be advisable to select a lower microwave power setting,
Arranging Food rather than the maximum power setting, to obtain an
acceptable meal. This will take longer to heat but produces an
improved result to the waiting customer.
4. Defrosted Foods
It is always more benefical to reheat a defrosted product rather
than a frozen one. A defrosted dish will heat evenly, faster and
without the fuss and bother that a frozen dish will cause. It is
important to ensure that solid, ready-made meals are always
defrosted prior to reheating. These meals can not be stirred
during the heating time and if heated from frozen they would
begin to overcook around the edges whilst the centre area is
still cold and may be even still slightly frozen.
5. Arranging Food
Remember to arrange food correctly, with the thicker parts to
the outside and thinner parts to the centre.
6. Sealed Containers
If the food is contained in its own sealed container, pierce the
top film with a fork to let out the excess steam. During heating,
instead of stirring the food, lightly shake the container.
7. Pies - Pastry topped
Ensure the pastry is loosened from the sides of the container
with pastry topped pot meals. If the pastry has formed a seal
with the container and is then heated quickly, the air trapped
under the pastry expands very quickly causing the top to fly off.
8. Multiple vegetable portions
It is possible to heat vegetables with the same time per portion
together.
9. Solid meals
With individual portions of solid pot meals, such as Lasagne
and Macaroni Cheese, slightly indent the centre of the food
with the back of a spoon. This will make the centre thinner and
easier for the heat to penetrate.
10. Prebrowned foods
Many commercially prepared cooked foods eg sausages may
be prebrowned. They only require heating by MICROWAVE and
do not require heating by COMBINATION.

Defrosting by Microwave
The ability to defrost foods quickly is another excellent benefit of your Panasonic Combi. The quality of
the defrosted food will depend a great deal on the care the food receives in freezing and defrosting, so
always ensure that the best food is frozen and that it is packaged correctly.
Ensure the freezer is running at the correct temperature (-18°C or below) and that it is not overloaded with
food or ice. Always label and date foods so that they can be used in strict rotation.
Always defrost using the Defrost power setting. NEVER try to hurry the defrosting by selecting a higher
power level as this will only over-defrost the food, causing it to become tough and inedible and leading to
waste.

Follow these tips for best results:
1. Meat
Place meats on a rack, trivet or upturned saucer in a
shallow dish. This enables the water to drain from the
food and defrost correctly; if the food sits in the liquid it
is likely to begin to cook and a poached effect is
created.
2. Foods in foil
Transfer foods packaged in aluminium foil containers
into suitable microwaveable dishes before defrosting.
3. Arranging 3 ®Arranging
Arrange the food evenly and in a shallow layer on the
rack or plate. Do not pile foods up as this will prevent
the food at the bottom from defrosting in the same time
as the food on the top.
4. Uneven Shapes
Always arrange thick areas of the food to the outside of
the dish, and thinner areas to the centre, this is
particularly important for chops and chicken portions.
Where possible, arrange two uneven shaped pieces of
food in a dish with the thick area of one piece to the thin
area of the other, to ensure even defrosting.
4 ® Uneven Shapes
5. Shielding
Check food to ensure it does not over-defrost. Remove
any defrosted food, if possible, and turn and shield
thinner areas of food. It will be necessary to shield the
breast, ends of the legs and the wings on a chicken, and
the head and tail of a whole fish. Seperate items such as
chops, sausages and steaks and rearrange in a single
layer as soon as possible. To shield, cover defrosted,
and thinner, or fatty areas of food, with a small piece of
aluminium foil. This will reflect the microwave energy
away from that area to prevent it from over defrosting
and beginning to cook. Check foods at least twice
during the defrosting time and shield, as necessary,
ensuring the foil is still securely in place.
N.B. Ensure the foil does not touch the side or roof of
the cavity or “arcing” may occur. If this does happen,
stop the microwave and rearrange the foods.
3 "Shielding
6. Cooling
For best results DEFROST foods in a cool oven. See
page 23.
36
Defrosting by Microwave
Stand Time 7. Standing Time
Food should still feel icy at the end of the defrosting
time; this will disappear during the standing time. Do
NOT be tempted to put food back to continue to defrost
in the microwave as this will lead to over defrosting.
Allow small items of food to stand for 15 minutes before
cooking; larger pieces of food will need longer.
Cover foods during the standing time, to prevent
contamination by airborne bacteria.

8. Container Shape
Foods in square shaped containers need careful
attention during defrosting to prevent the corners from
beginning to cook. It may be necessary to stop larger
portions of food during the defrosting time to shield the
corners with aluminium foil. After defrosting, always
remember to transfer the food into more suitable, round
containers before reheating in the microwave.
8 “Container Shape
9. Stirring
Foods that can be stirred, such as curries, casseroles and
meat sauces, should, as the defrosting time progresses,
be broken up and stirred. Stir the food before, and after,
the standing time as this helps to break up the ice
particles and speed up defrosting.
10. Solid foods
Foods that can not be stirred, eg Lasagne, Cottage Pie
and topped dishes, benefit from standing for a period of
time in the middle of defrosting. This enables the
product to defrost through to the centre without the
edges becoming excessively hot, Use the Multi-stage
programme facility. See page 9.
11. Foods not listed in Defrost Charts
To defrost food not mentioned in the charts, select the
Defrost power setting and as a rough GUIDE, allow
20-30 seconds per 1 0z/25 g of food. When using this
method do not leave the food unattended as it defrosts,
but check frequently.
EP Calculate the defrosting time accurately and
follow any specific instructions.

Cooking by Microwave
Commerical, microwave ovens are primarily used for reheating and defrosting. It is possible however to
cook certain foods eg. fish and vegetables very successfully by microwave. These foods should be limited
to small quantities as larger amounts will not offer any time saving.
Fish
Arranging
1. Arranging
When cooking fillets or whole fish, always arrange the thicker
part to the outside of the container and, wherever possible,
make even-shaped parcels of fish. Cook two whole fish together,
placed head to tail with the backbone towards the outside of the
dish.
2. Shielding
Single whole fish will need to have the head and tail ends
shielded with aluminium foil halfway through the cooking time.
(Refer to page 36.)
3. Whole fish
Score the sides of whole fish prior to cooking; this prevents the
skin from bursting and splattering the oven cavity. A better
result is obtained if whole fish are cooked on a lower power
setting rather than High power.
4. Fish fillets
Fish fillets should be rolled so that the head and tail of the fillet
overlap forming a fish parcel. Any number of fillets can be
cooked together, on High power, in this way. Arranging food in
this manner means that it cooks evenly and without the need to
shield with aluminium foil.
3 "Adding water
40
1. Adding salt
Vegetables cooked by microwave, retain their colour and
texture. The short cooking times and the small quantity of
cooking liquid required ensures the vegetables do not lose their
nutrative value. Do not add salt to the vegetables as, the
natural salts present in the food are retained.
2. Cooking vegetables together
It is possible to cook a selection of vegetables together in the
same dish; if they have roughly the same cooking time per
pound. Do not, for example, cook new potatoes alongside
frozen peas, as the peas will be cooked and the potatoes
almost raw.
3. Adding water
A small amount of water is required to generate sufficient
steam to begin to cook the vegetables; the microwave energy
Will then complete the cooking within the vegetables
themselves. If too much liquid is added this will increase the
cooking time considerably.
4. Container size
Choose the size of the dish to the quantity of vegetables to be
cooked. A large, covered bowl with only a handful of food in
the base does not cook very well.
5. Arranging
Always arrange the denser parts of the vegetables to the
outside of the dish. With vegetables such as broccili the denser
part is the stalk.
6. Part-cooking
If the vegetables are going to be pre-cooked for plating up,
refrigerating and regenerating at a later date, reduce the
cooking time by about a third; during the reheating time the
vegetables will complete their cooking, retaining their “bite”.
7. Standing time
It is important to allow vegetables to stand before testing to see
if they are correctly cooked. This prevents the vegetables over
cooking and becoming tough.

Using the Convection Function
Accessories to use
For best results place the cooking container on Wire Rack Shelf
in LOWER position. Food can be placed directly on Ceramic
Insulating Tray or Wire Rack Shelf if it is thoroughly cleaned
before use.
Containers to use
DO USE: any container suitable for conventional ovens eg
metal, ceramic, earthenware, enamelled cast iron.
DO NOT USE: Plastic containers, food films, wood/wicker,
glass, paper.
T Reducing cooking temperature
The fan forces hot air over the food thus heating food very
efficiently. To avoid over cooking and drying of the surface it is
recommended that the normal cooking temperatures are
reduced by 10-20%C. Cooking times by convection are also
usually shorter compared to conventional ovens.
Tr Two level cooking
Do not attempt to use the Wire Rack Shelf to cook on Two levels.
T Positioning food
Convection ovens rely on good circulation of air. For best
results ensure food/containers are placed in the centre of
the Wire Rack Shelf and avoid container touching back wall or
covering venting holes.
To allow good circulation of hot air, the maximum sized dish
used should be no greater than
Width: 12ins (30cms)
Depth: 4ins (10cms)
Diameter: 1t1ins (28cms)
If you are using large dishes, insert the Wire Rack Shelf upside
down so dish sits flat.
T Preheating
For best results, always place food into a preheated oven.

Using the Combination Function
Choosing a Combination Function
Cooking by COMBINATION allows you to obtain crisp browned
foods but in a shorter cooking time than conventional cooking.
There are two types of COMBINATION settings:
1. MICROWAVE and GRILL together.
2. MICROWAVE and CONVECTION together
Accessories to use:
The Wire Rack Shelf may be placed on either shelf position
depending on the type of COMBINATION progamme in use. ie
| UPPER position for a GRILL combination or LOWER position for
convection combination. The Ceramic Insulating Tray must be
used when food is placed in a metal container. NEVER place a
metal container onto Wire Rack Shelf if cooking by Combination
as arcing may occur and damage the dish/oven.
Containers to use:
Combination programmes use microwaves and heat
(CONVECTION or GRILL) therefore you must choose the
container carefully.
DO USE: Metal containers check; they do not have jagged metal
seams. Ceramics that do not have a metal pattern, heatproof
glass and china.
DO NOT USE: enamelled items (that may be chipped). Dishes
with gold/metal pattern, Enamelled cast Iron eg Le Creuset. Any
dish that’s not heatproof eg plastics, and cling film.
T Selecting a Programme
Always select CONVECTION temperature or GRILL level first
then choose required MICROWAVE power level.
ТР Metal Containers
Avoid using large or deep sided metal containers. This will
restrict the effectiveness of the Microwaves and lengthen the
heating time.
Tr Draining Fat
When cooking meat joints and other fatty items, drain fat to
avoid excessive splatter and smoke.
T Preheating
For best results, always place food in a preheated oven — see
page 22.
TY if arcing occurs!
Stop oven immediately and continue to cook by convection only and transfer food to a suitable container.

Reheating by Combination
Tips for reheating your own Homemade Foods
1. Choosing GRILL or CONVECTION COMBINATION
As a general rule, be guided by the conventional reheating
method. Reheating by combination adds Microwave power to
speed up the process whilst giving a similar conventionally
finished result.
GRILL COMBINATION is suitable for:
1. Foods that will be reheated quickly and can withstand
further browning eg chops, sausages, chicken portions,
pizzas.
2. Dishes that require reheating and have been assembled but
not finished eg Lasagnes, Potato Topped Pies etc.
CONVECTION COMBINATION is suitable for:
1. Foods or dishes requiring an all around heat eg Pastry
Topped Pies.
2. Small items eg Onion Bhajis, Samosas.
2. Accessories to use:
Use Wire Rack Shelf depending on your choice of GRILL or
CONVECTION COMBINATION. See page 14.
3. Choosing the Microwave Power
The maximum Microwave Power you can select on
COMBINATION is LOW power. Small items and pastry parcels
with wet fillings benefit from SIMMER or DEFROST power to
avoid overheating or bursting.
Unevenly shaped foods benefit from a lower power, to prevent
thinner parts or ends, eg sausages, from over cooking.
4. Choosing the CONVECTION Temperature
The temperature required will depend on the degree of
browning achieved during prime cooking and the desired
colour/crispness of the final finish.
ALWAYS reheat in a preheated oven (see page 22). As foods
are reheated in a shorter time than conventional methods,
increase the temperature by 10-20°C if a brown/crisp result is
required. If the conventional reheat temperature is 220°C or
over, this will not be necessary.
5. Containers
If you are preparing recipes for freezing to generate on
Combination, choose containers that are microwave safe as
well as heatproof and suitable for freezing.
To make good use of the microwave energy the containers
should not be too deep. When preparing Multiportion recipes,
select a container that is not too large for the cavity of the oven
as this may restrict circulation of the hot air.
6. Reheating two dishes together
Ensure that you serve your recipes in identical dishes if
reheating more than one dish at a time, so they reheat at the
same speed.
NEVER use the Wire Rack Shelf for reheating on two levels.
7. Memory Programmes
Consistency in preparation and careful choice of serving dish
will mean you can use the Memory Programmes to reheat a
regularly requested, Homemade item. Some experimentation
may be needed at first to select the correct setting however as
long as you do not vary from the standard set, you can be
confident of the Memory Programme chosen.
Don’t forget to probe dishes to check that they are 72°C in the
centre, or thickest part, before serving.
8. Increasing Quantities
When increasing quantities, choose an adequately larger
container. If reheating on GRILL COMBINATION, a larger
quantity may need to be reheated using a Multi-stage
(sequential) programme ie MICROWAVE only then GRILL
COMBINATION as the food does not overbrown before it is
thoroughly heated through.

Reheating by Combination
Tips for Reheating Commercially Prepared Foods
Many Commercially prepared foods are ideal for reheating on
COMBINATION - offering the advantage of large time saving as
only a fraction of the conventional heating time is required. It
also means that many foods will have a “freshly cooked”
appearance due to the crisping and browning that takes place
— more appetising for many recipes than MICROWAVE only.
1. Using Suppliers Instructions
Check the pack instructions carefully as these will be a good
indication of how to choose your combination programme.
2. Choosing the Programme
Refer to the following charts and find a similar food to select an
appropriate programme. Many commercially frozen foods are
partially cooked for eg a quiche , may have a part-cooked
pastry base with an uncooked filling, or an en croute may be
fully cooked in the centre even if the pastry is raw. CHECK
CAREFULLY whether the food is already cooked and requires
reheating only or whether it contains uncooked components
and must be thoroughly cooked before serving. Generally, a
food that requires cooking will be more successful on a lower
Temperature/Microwave power and longer heating time.
Foods that require reheating only are heated for a shorter time
and may benefit from higher temperatures.
3. Checking Temperature
ALWAYS ensure that the food has reached a temperature of at
least 72°C if it is being reheated. If the food requires cooking,
then check it has reached the appropriate temperature.
4. Variations in weight
If the foods to be reheated vary in weight from those shown in
the charts over, reduce/increase the times appropriately.
If the products are reheated by a Multi-stage (sequential)
programme, reduce/increase the MICROWAVE only times first
but leave the browning GRILL times the same. If
cooking/reheating products from frozen by a Multi-stage
(sequential) programme double the microwave time given for
reheating from “fridge” temperature and add a further 50-75%
extra to the browning GRILL time.
If cooking/reheating products from frozen by a straight
COMBINATION CONVECTION setting, add approximately 50%
extra time to the time required from “fridge” temperature.
5. Containers
If a particularly solid food or dish that cannot be stirred eg
Lasagne, is contained in foil, transfer to a suitable non-metallic
dish whilst frozen.
6. Prebrowned foods
Many commercially prepared cooked foods eg. sausages may
be prebrowned. These are often better reheated by
MICROWAVE only rather than COMBINATION. Foods that are
prebrowned, but require further crisping, should be reheated on
COMBINATION CONVECTION.
7. Arranging
It is essential that individual items are arranged evenly for
thorough reheating by MICROWAVE and browning by
GRILL/CONVECTION.

Cooking by Combination
Containers to Use:
Combination programmes use microwaves and heat
(CONVECTION or GRILL) therefore you must choose the
container carefully.
DO USE: Metal containers check they do not have jagged
metal seams. Ceramics that do not have a metal pattern.
heatproof glass and china.
DO NOT USE: enamelled items (that may be chipped).
Dishes with gold/metal pattern, Enamelled cast Iron eg Le
Creuset. Any dish that's not heatproof eg plastics, and
cling film.
Two Level Cooking
DO NOT attempt to use the Wire Rack Shelf to cook on
two levels.
Preheat
For best results always place food in a preheated oven,
see page 22.

e
Overloading the Oven
DO NOT overload the oven as this will prevent the hot
air and microwave energy from circulating evenly. If
necessary cook your adapted recipe in batches, eg
cook eight portions in two batches of-four, rather than
try and cram all eight portions in the oven at once.
Standing Time
As a COMBINATION setting uses Microwave energy to
cook the food, it is important to allow a standing time for
the food to finish cooking (see page 24). As a rough
guide recipes cooking fish, vegetables, and small parts
will require 5-10 minutes standing time and joints and
whole poultry will require 15-20 minutes standing time.
50
Cooking by Combination
It is possible to cook as well as reheat foods by COMBINATION. Foods cooked in this way will have a
crisp, browned finish but a cooking time % — % of the conventional time. The following pages will offer
hints and tips on cooking by COMBINATION.
Accessories to use:
Foods can be placed directly on the Wire Rack Shelf or
Ceramic Insulating Tray if the tray is completely clean.
Use UPPER or LOWER shelf depending on your choice
of GRILL or CONVECTION COMBINATION programme.
Adapting your Own Recipes:
Following a few simple rules will help you to adapt your
own recipes to a COMBINATION recipe.
1. If the recipe asks for food to be shallow fried or
boiled, adapt this to MICROWAVE only cooking. Use
the tips and charts on page 40-41 as a guide or
adjust conventional cooking times to approximately
one quarter. Check the foods frequently when
cooking. The majority of foods will cook on HIGH
power, but reduce the power level to MEDIUM fot
more delicate food such as milk or egg based
products, or if you are unsure of the results.
2. If the recipe asks foods to be grilled adapt this to
GRILL COMBINATION cooking. Adjust conventional
cooking times to ‘/s to '/2 of the conventional time.
Check the foods frequently during cooking. The
majority of foods will cook on GRILL 1, but for more
delicate foods, such as fish, pizzas etc, reduce the
setting to GRILL 2 or 3, or lower the shelf position.
Select LOW power for dishes using vegetables,
chicken, fish and pastries. Use SIMMER or DEFROST
for dishes using meat.
3. If the recipe asks for foods to be baked then choose
a CONVECTION COMBINATION programme. Adjust
conventional cooking times to 1/35-'2 of the
conventional time. Check the foods frequently during
cooking. Select the same temperature as stated in the
conventional recipe and always use lower shelf
position. Select LOW power for dishes using
vegetables, chicken, fish and pastries. Use SIMMER
or DEFROST for dishes containing meat.

Cooking Fish on Combination
1. Arranging
When cooking fillets or whole fish, always arrange the
thicker part to the outside of the container. Two fish
cooked together should be placed head to tail, with the
backbone towards the outside fo the dish.
Fish steaks should be arranged with the thinner tail end
towards the centre. DO NOT PILE fish up — for best
results cook in a single layer.
2 y Add/Fat/Oil/Season
2. Adding fat/oil/seasoning
To help keep the fish moist, brush with oil or dot with
butter before cooking. DO NOT season with salt.
3. Covering
DO NOT COVER fish when cooking by COMBINATION.
4. Shelf position
For GRILL COMBINATION which is suitable for small
whole fish, steaks, fillets, use UPPER shelf position. 4 Y Shelf Position
For CONVECTION COMBINATION which is suitable for
larger whole fish, use LOWER shelf position.
5. Accessories/Containers
DO NOT use metal containers for cooking by COMBI-
NATION - MICROWAVE safe glass or ceramics are
ideal. If the fish is placed on the Ceramic Insulating Tray,
ensure it is thoroughly cleaned beforehand.

Cooking Meat on Combination
Tips for cooking Joints of meat on Combination
1. Turning/Basting/Draining
For best results, joints of meat should be turned halfway
through cooking and basted. Drain away any excess
meat juices and fat.
2. Shielding
Unevenly shaped joints will benefit from shielding with
smooth pieces of aluminium foil. However, ensure the
foil is not in contact with Wire Rack Shelf, walls, roof or
door of the oven. Shield thin ends of legs of lamb and
corners of rolled joints.
3. Covering
DO NOT cover meat joints when cooking by
Combination.
4. Accessories/Containers
If the joints are placed on the Ceramic Insulating Tray, Mea ía (Ur
ensure it is thoroughly cleaned before use. a
5. Shelf Position
Use the LOWER shelf position.
6. Calculating the Cooking Time
As a rough guide, cook the joints for 1/2-2/3 of the total
conventional cooking time.
When cooking by combination, drop the Convection
Temperature by 10°C compared to the normal conven-
tional temperature.
Always under-estimate the cooking time and return the
joint for further cooking if necessary. Check internal
temperature before STANDING.
7. Standing
Allow joints to STAND for 20 minutes before carving.
8. Maximum Weight
DO NOT attempt to cook joints over 6lb (2.7kg) in
weight. Avoid excessively fatty joints.
9. Maximum Microwave Power
For best results ONLY use SIMMER or DEFROST power
to avoid over-cooking and drying out the joints.

Cooking Meat on Combination
Tips for cooking Poultry on Combination
1. Turning/Basting/Draining
For best results, whole chickens should be turned
halfway through cooking and basted. Drain any excess
meat juices and fat.
2. Shielding
To prevent overcooking, shield the breast, wings and
legs of chicken, duck and turkey with smooth pieces of
aluminium foil.
Ensure foil does not touch Wire Rack Shelf, walls, roof
or door of oven.
3. Covering
DO NOT cover poultry when cooking by Combination.
4. Stuffing
Shielding , DO NOT stuff the complete cavity of poultry if cooking
: by Combination. Neck end of bird only may be stuffed.
Cook stuffing separately on Microwave SIMMER power.
5. Calculating the Cooking Time
As a rough guide, cook poultry 2/3 of the usual total
conventional cooking time. For poultry, best results are
obtained by using the same temperature as for conven-
tional cooking. Check the internal temperature before MM AY AT
STANDING. .
6. Standing
Allow poultry to STAND for 15-20 minutes before carving.
7. Maximum Weight
For best results DO NOT attempt to cook poultry over
6lb (2.7kg) in weight.

Tips for cooking Small Cuts on Combination
7 y Container
1. Turning
Most thicker cuts benefit from turning during cooking.
When turning, remove Wire Rack Shelf completely. If
cooking small items directly on Ceramic Insulating Tray,
remove Tray to turn food — DO NOT leave shelf extend-
ed from oven as there is NO NON-TIP SAFETY LOCK.
2. Arranging
Arrange small cuts evenly and for best results use full
width of oven. DO NOT pile foods on top of each other —
arrange in a single layer only.
3. Draining Juices
For best results, place food directly on Wire Rack Shelf
using Ceramic Insulating Tray on base of oven to catch
drips. This tray must be removed for cleaning to avoid
excessive smoke/splatter and to cook efficiently.
Small items can be placed directly on Ceramic
Insulating Tray on top of Wire Rack Shelf.
4. Standing Time
Small cuts require 5-10 minutes STANDING time before
serving.
5. Calculating Cooking Time
Cooking small cuts on Combination Grill allows most
cuts to brown and crisp more quickly than when con-
ventionally grilled. Allow roughly % than conventional
time as a guide.
6. Maximum Microwave Power
When cooking fatty cuts, take care to select SIMMER
power only, to avoid overcooking unevenly shaped
pieces.
7. Container
DO NOT place food on a metal tray/container as this will
slow down cooking time by reducing effect of
Microwave Power.
8. Cleaning the Oven
It is essential that the oven is kept very clean for
Combination Grill, to avoid excess smoke and splatter.

Common Problems
This section tries to solve any common problems you may have. Remember to always keep your
Operating Guide on hand for reference.
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
Food cools quickly after Microwave
or Combination cooking.
Food insuffiently heated.
Return to oven for additional
cooking.
Foods take longer to cook, defrost
or reheat than stated.
Oven not receiving enough
power.
Check oven is connected to an
outlet having a rated current
greater than 13 amps.
Food type, size,
weight, temperature
not exactly as stated.
The stated times are only a Guide.
Heating will be improved with the
use of correct containers and
arranging. Remember to vary the
heating, if the food is colder or
heavier than stated.
Oven dirty and food debris
is absorbing the microwave
energy.
Ensure the oven is cleaned
regularly.
Liquids boil over when cooked by
microwave or combination.
Containers too small.
Use a container twice the
volume of the liquid.
Vegetables become wrinkly and hard
when cooked/reheated by microwave.
Vegetables overcooked.
Allow standing time when cooking
and slightly undercook vegetables,
if they are to be reheated.
Foods heat unevenly.
Foods incorrectly arranged
or incompatible foods are
being heated together.
Arrange foods, so that thicker
parts are in the outside of the
plate and smaller foods to the
centre. Do not heat very dense
foods with porous foods as
the later will heat faster.
Only one side of cavity heats.
Foods incorrectly arranged.
Rearrange foods as above. It is
impossible for only one side of
the cavity to receive microwaves
as the energy is distributed by a
rotating guide. If the magnetron
is no longer working all food will
remain cold.
Foods heated by microwave or
combination are hard and tough.
Foods overcooked.
Reduce the time or power
with more delicate foods.
Foods “explode” during heating.
Power level too high.
Reduce power level.
Skins of foods i.e potatoes,
chicken are not pierced.
Pierce skins on foods to release
pressure build up during heating.
NEVER try to boil eggs in shells.
Foods that have been defrosted
do not heat in the centre.
Foods have not been
suffiently defrosted or
allowed to stand before
reheating.
Check that foods are between
1-4°C before going on to reheat.
If the edges of the food are getting
too warm shield with foil.
See page 36.
66
PROBLEM
Dishes get hot.
Common Problems
SOLUTION
Steam trapped within
container transferring
heat to dish.
This is normal, particularly in
covered dishes. Remove lids/film
carefully to prevent steam burns.
The dish is absorbing
the microwave energy.
Carry out the dish test given with
Glossary of Terms. Do not use
unsuitable dishes.
This is normal and an excellent
way of heating the plate!
If the “Preheat” function
is in operation, the dish will
absorb some of the residual
heat in the cavity.
Condensation appears in the
cavity and door.
This is normal and the
condensation should be wiped
off with a soft cloth. Ensure air
vents are not blocked.
Food is heating faster than
the steam can be expelled.
Steam is expelled from around
the door.
This is normal. The intricate
workings of the door safety
devices will prevent the escape
of microwave energy but not
steam or cooking smells.
The steam is finding an
exit from cavity.
Smoke appears around the
door when grilling.
Fat from food is splashing
on to the grill elements and
burning.
Stop the oven and drain away all
excess fat and juices. Watch the
food carefully as it grills. Ensure the
cavity ceiling is cleaned regularly.
The ceramic cavity base cracks.
Operator mis-use. Be careful to place the food care-
fully on the base of the cavity. Do
not slam or drop the food: the
base is made from ceramic not
painted metal.
Can | use the oven Off- Shore?
Common Queries
Yes if the supply is 50Hz. The oven will not operate at 60Hz.
Where can | obtain additional
oven accessories?
Contact the manufacturer or the dealer from whom you
purchased the oven.
Can the oven be stacked?
Do not stack your Panasonic Combi Oven on other
microwaves of similar or different models. It is best to site
your oven clear of all other kitchen equipment which may
produce excess humidity i.e. oven ranges, deep-fat fryers etc.
Can | dry tea towels and
Clothes in the oven?
No. Never put these, or similar items in your Panasonic Combi
Oven.
How often should the oven
be serviced?
It is best to be guided by your authorised Service Agent. This
depends on useage however keep oven clean.
What functions should | set
in the memory Programmes?
Set oven functions and times that are most suitable for your
operation. These may be times of common dishes you heat; you
may have the time for one dish on A select and for two dishes on
B select programmes; you may simply just have times that you
commonly use for a variety of things i.e.) High power for 1 minute.
Your Panasonic Combi oven is adaptable to your needs.

When to Call a Service Engineer
If An “F” Appears In The Display
Your Panasonic Combi Oven is equipped with a Self
Diagnostic Failure Code System; this means the oven
monitors its own operation and will show a failure code
In the display window in the unlikely event of a
malfunction.
If a Failure Code appears in the display window (it will
appear as an “F” then a two digit number) follow these
steps:
1. Close the door and switch off at socket. Ensure all
air vents are clear.
2. Leave 1 minute and then reconnect the oven at the
mains.
3. Open the door and place food or a jug of water in
the cavity, close the door.
4. Try the same function that had been in operation
prior to the appearance of the Failure Code in the
display window.
If the Failure Code appears again, then contact the
dealer from which you purchased the oven, the
manufacturer or a known Approved Service Agent. See
contacting a Service Engineer.
If There Is Damage To The Oven
Contact a Service Engineer immediately if you find
damage to the supply cord, control panel, cavity, or the
door. It is best not to use the oven again until you have
ascertained from the Service Agent that it is safe to do
so. Remember to give the Service Engineer as much
information as possible. See contacting a Service
Engineer.
68
When to Call a Service Engineer
If The Oven Is Not Working
If you find the oven is not working, follow these points
before contacting a Service Engineer. Check:
1.
2.
3.
7.
The oven door is closed.
The required function(s) have been set correctly
and the Start Pad pressed. See pages 8 to 17.
The programme lock has not been activated or
deactivated against your requirements.
. The oven is connected to an outlet having rated
current greater than 20 amps: try another power
point, there maybe a problem with the socket or even
a total power failure.
. The oven is not connected to the electrical supply by
means of an adaptor or extension cable.
. The air vents are not blocked. If they are, unblock
them, leave the oven for 15 minutes and then try
again.
The “Common Problems” section an pages 66 - 67.
If the oven is still not operational contact your Service
Agent with all your details. See contacting a Service
Engineer.

your Panasonic Combi Oven whilst the oven is in
operation, unless you select the lamp pad.
Contacting A Service Engineer
When contacting a “Service Agent” always remember to
state clearly the following information:
1.
> WN
The address and name, if applicable, of the site
where the oven is situated.
. The telephone number of that site.
. A contact name at that site.
. The model number and serial number of the
oven;these numbers can be found on the rating plate,
situated by the control panel just inside the door.
. The problem with the oven, including the Failure
Code number.
. If known, from where and when the oven was
purchased.
. When the site will be open for an engineer to visit.
69
Care of your Oven and Cleaning
It is essential that you follow these points to get the maximum use from your oven. Microwaves are attracted
to moisture and grease: therefore a dirty oven does not cook EFFICIENTLY.
1. Before Cleaning
Switch off at the socket.
2. Door seals
Pay special attention to cleaning the door seals and
door seal areas.
Regularly wipe the Drip Ledge to avoid a build up of
moisture and grease.
3. Door
Keep the inside glass of the door clean by wiping
regularly with a soft damp cloth. Small amounts of oven
cleaner can be used - DO NOT SPRAY DIRECTLY onto
door - spray onto a cloth and wipe over. Do not use
harsh detergents or abrasives.
4. Oven walls
The walls should be wiped regularly with a soft damp
cloth. Small amounts of oven cleaner can be used - DO
NOT SPRAY DIRECTLY onto walls - spray onto a cloth
and wipe over.
DO NOT ALLOW OVEN CLEANER NEAR THE HOLES
IN THE WALL OF THE OVEN. If corrosive cleaner gets
behind the wall, your oven could be damaged. Do not
O
5. Floor
The wave guide is situated beneath the ceramic base of
the oven. Any spills must therefore be wiped to ensure
even heating. Do not use harsh detergents or
abrasives.
6. Roof
The roof contains the 4 Quartz Grill elements. Before
cleaning ensure oven has cooled to avoid burns. Wipe
the roof regularly with a damp cloth to minimise build
up of grease.

Care of your Oven and Cleaning
7. Control Panel
If the Control Panel becomes dirty, clean with a soft, dry
or well rung cloth. Do not use harsh detergents or
abrasive on Control Panel. DO NOT use a saturated
cloth as the remaining moisture may damage the panel.
8. Accessories
The accessories should be cleaned regularly to
maximise efficiency of the oven.
Ceramic/Tray - Clean Ceramic Tray after every use but
DO NOT PLACE HOT CERAMIC INSULATING TRAY
directly under a COLD tap - the tray may shatter.
Wire Rack Shelf - This should be cleaned after every
session. Take care not to use harsh abrasive.
Remove the shelf supports and clean regularly. Don’t
forget to clean oven walls behind supports.
If food splashes are not cleaned off shelf supports they
will be carbonised during further heating and may
cause ARCING by Microwave.
a. Unscrew the Oven Lamp cover, located on the left
side of the cabinet.
b. Replace the old lamp with a new 240/220V 25W
Max, E-14 lamp.
c. Close the Oven Lamp Cover and replace screw.
Damage
If the oven becomes damaged in any way, contact a
Service Engineer before continuing use.

GRILL.
Dish Test
To check if a container is suitable for use on
MICROWAVE, follow instructions below:
1. Check on the base of a container to see if it is
microwave safe. If you are uncertain, check a
piece of china using the simple dish test.
. Place a microwave safe container with %pint
(300ml) of cold water on base of microwave.
Alongside, place container to be tested. Heat
on HIGH power for 1 minute.
N
Arcing is the static discharge during microwave
heating which occurs between any two metals eg
the side of the cavity and a metal container:
Characterised by a blue flash.
If arcing occurs, stop oven immediately. Check
that, if a metal container is being used, it is not
touching sides or door of oven. Transfer food to a
suitable container if necessary.
Result: A suitable container for microwave will
remain fairly cool but the water will feel warm.
If the container is warm or hot then it is absorbing
some microwave energy and SHOULD NOT
be used. China which absorbs energy will not
harm the oven but will slow down the heating
of the food.
If Arcing Occurs
Arcing may also occur if foil is incorrectly used to
shield during DEFROSTING and COOKING. Use
SMOOTH pieces of foil and make sure they do not
touch roof or walls of oven.
Arcing may also occur if food splashes are not
cleaned off and become carbonised. KEEP OVEN
AND ACCESSORIES CLEAN.
