Your oven is rated 1000 Watts (IEC). When using other cookbooks remember to
adjust cooking times accordingly. The symbol above, which is displayed on your
oven door, indicates the heating category for your oven when cooking or
reheating convenience foods.
Your oven is rated ‘E’, which is very efficient. It is therefore very important that
you refer carefully to the packet instructions on convenience foods.
Some packet instructions only display information for B or D rated ovens. We
therefore provide additional guidelines for reheating on pages 39-44 of this book.
ALWAYS check the progress of the food as it cooks or reheats by simply
opening the door and after checking the progress of the foods press START to
continue the cooking time.
Failure to follow the instructions given in this Cookbook and Operating
Instructions, may affect the recipe result and in some instances may be
dangerous.

Welcome to Panasonic Microwave Cooking
Thank you for purchasing a Panasonic Microwave Oven.
Even if this is not your first microwave oven, do please read the opening
chapters of this cookbook to achieve perfect results every time.
GN VERTER
This microwave oven has the benefit of the Inverter System Inside. The new
unique technology has been in use with microwave ovens in Japan for many
years, improving the cooking performance of the oven. It also means that you
benefit from having more space inside your oven, without taking up more room
on your work surface.
Microwaves leave most foods tastier and leave you with less washing up, but
don’t expect to become a perfect microwave cook overnight — some of the
methods are very different to those used in conventional cooking.
Home Economists program the ovens especially for the UK market. The recipes
are also tested many times to ensure you achieve successful results at home.
We hope you enjoy using your new oven but should you require any further
help or explanation, phone our

Important Information — Read Carefully
Safety
If smoke or a fire occurs in the oven, press Stop/Cancel pad and
leave the door closed in order to stifle any flames.
Disconnect the power cord, or shut off power at the fuse or the circuit
breaker panel.
Short Cooking Times
As microwave cooking times are much shorter than other cooking
methods it is essential that recommended cooking times are not
exceeded without first checking the food.
Cooking times given in the cookbook are approximate. Factors that
may affect cooking times are: preferred degree of cooking, starting
temperature, altitude, volume, size and shape of foods and utensils
used. As you become familiar with the oven, you will be able to adjust
these factors.
It is better to undercook rather than overcook foods. If food is
undercooked, it can always be returned to the oven for further
cooking. If food is overcooked, nothing can be done. Always start with
minimum cooking times.
Important.
If the recommended cooking times are exceeded the food will be
spoiled and in extreme circumstances could catch fire and possibly
damage the interior of the oven.
1. Small Quantities of Food.
Take care when heating small quantities of
food as these can easily burn, dry out or
catch fire if cooked too long. Always set short
cooking times and check the food frequently.
NEVER OPERATE THE OVEN WITHOUT FOOD INSIDE ON
MICROWAVE OR COMBINATION EXCEPT WHEN
PREHEATING THE PANACRUNCH PAN (See page 35).
2. Foods Low in Moisture.
Take care when heating foods low in
moisture, e.g. bread items, chocolate,
popcorn, biscuits and pastries. These can
easily burn, dry out or catch on fire if
cooked too long.
3. Christmas Pudding.
Christmas puddings and other foods high
in fats or sugar, e.g. jam, mince pies,
must not be over heated. These foods
must never be left unattended as with
over cooking these foods can ignite.
4.
Boiled Eggs.
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.
Foods with Skins.
Potatoes, apples, egg yolk, whole
vegetables and sausages are
examples of food with non porous
skins. These must be pierced using a
fork before cooking to prevent bursting.
Liquids.
Liquids and other foods must not be heated in sealed containers
since they are liable to explode. When heating liquids, eg soup,
sauces and beverages in your microwave oven, 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 necks.
b) Do not overheat.
с) 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.
e) Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed
eruptive boiling, therefore care should be taken when handling
the container.
Lids.
Always remove the lids of jars and containers and takeaway food
containers before you microwave them. If you don’t then steam
and pressure might build up inside and cause an explosion even
after the microwave cooking has stopped.
Deep Fat Frying.
Do not attempt to deep fat fry in your oven.

Meat Thermometer.
Use a meat thermometer to check the
degree of cooking of roasts and poultry
only when meat has been removed from
the microwave. If undercooked, return to
the oven and cook for a few more
minutes at the recommended power
level. Do not leave a conventional meat
thermometer in the oven when
microwaving.
Paper, Plastic.
When heating food in plastic or paper
containers, keep an eye on the oven due
to the possibility of ignition. Do not use
wire twist-ties with roasting bags as
arcing will occur.
Do not use re-cycled paper products, e.g.
Kitchen roll unless they say they are
specifically designed for use in a microwave oven. These
products contain impurities which may cause sparks and/or fires
when used.
Reheating.
It is essential that reheated food is
served “piping hot”.
Remove the food from the oven and
check that it is “piping hot”, i.e. steam is
being emitted from all parts and any
sauce is bubbling. (If you wish you may
choose to check the food has reached
72°C with a food thermometer — but
remember do not use this thermometer inside the microwave.)
For foods that cannot be stirred, e.g. lasagne, shepherds pie, the
centre should be cut with a knife to test it is well heated through.
Even if a manufacturer's packet instructions have been followed
always check the food is piping hot before serving and if in doubt
return your food to the oven for further heating.
Standing Time.
Standing time refers to the period at the
end of cooking or reheating when food is
left before being eaten, i.e. itis a rest
time which allows the heat in the food to
continue to conduct to the centre, thus
eliminating cold spots.

Keeping Your Oven Clean.
It is essential for the safe operation of
the oven that it is wiped out regularly.
Use warm soapy water, squeeze the
cloth out well and use to remove any
grease or food from the interior. Pay
particular attention to the door seal area
and also the areas around the
microwave feed guide situated on the
right hand side of the cavity wall. The
oven should be unplugged when cleaning. The catalytic lining at
the back does not need to be cleaned.
Grilling.
The oven will only operate on the GRILL function with the door
closed.
Fan Motor Operation.
After using the microwave oven, the fan motor may operate to
cool the electric components. This is normal and you can take out
food even though the fan motor operates. You can continue using
the oven during this time.
Containers.
Before use check that utensils/containers are suitable for use in
microwave ovens.
Babies Bottles and Food Jars.
When reheating babies bottles always
remove top and teat. Liquid at the top of
the bottle will be much hotter than that
at the bottom and must be shaken
thoroughly before checking the
temperature. The lid must also be
removed from babies food jars, the contents must also be stirred
or shaken before the temperature is checked. This should be
carried out before consumption in order to avoid burns.
Arcing
Arcing may occur if a metal container has been used incorrectly,
if the incorrect weight of food is used, or if the accessories have
been damaged. Arcing is when blue flashes of light are seen or
crackling noises are heard in the microwave oven. If this occurs,
stop the machine immediately. If the oven is left unattended and
this continues it can damage the machine,
You can continue to cook by GRILL OR CONVECTION ONLY.
Maximum weight on turntable
The maximum weight that can be placed on the turntable is 4kg
(8b 1402) (this includes total weight of food and dish.)

Microwaving Principles
Microwave energy has been used in this country to cook and reheat food
since early experiments with RADAR in World War Il. Microwaves are
present in the atmosphere all the time, both naturally and from manmade
sources.
Manmade sources include radar, radio, television, telecommunication links
and car phones.

? molecules in the food, all foods contain
water to a greater or lesser extent.
Microwave Water Molecule Absorption Vibration
The microwaves cause the water molecules to vibrate which causes
FRICTION, i.e. HEAT. This heat then cooks the food. Microwaves are
also attracted to fat and sugar particles, and foods high in these will cook
more quickly. Microwaves can only penetrate to a depth of 1%-2 inches
(4-5 cm) and as heat spreads through the food by conduction, just as in
a traditional oven, the food cooks from the outside inwards.
IMPORTANT NOTES
The dish used to cook or reheat the
food will get warm during cooking, as
the heat conducts from the food. Even
in microwaving, oven gloves are
required!

General Guidelines
STANDING TIME
10
Dense foods e.g. meat, jacket
potatoes and cakes, require a
STANDING TIME (inside or
outside of the oven) after cooking,
to allow heat to finish conducting
to cook the centre completely.
MEAT JOINTS — Stand 15 mins. wrapped in aluminium foil.
JACKET POTATOES — Stand 5 mins. wrapped in aluminium
foil.
LIGHT CAKES - Stand 5 mins. before removing from dish.
RICH DENSE CAKES — Stand 15-20 mins.
FISH — Stand 2-5 mins.
EGG DISHES — Stand 2-3 mins.
PRECOOKED CONVENIENCE FOODS — Stand for 5 mins.
PLATED MEALS — Stand for 2-5 mins.
VEGETABLES — Boiled potatoes benefit from standing
1-2 mins., however most other types of vegetables can be
served immediately.
DEFROSTING — It is essential to allow standing time to
complete the process. This can vary from 5 mins. e.g.
raspberries, to up to 1 hour for a joint of meat.
If food is not cooked after STANDING TIME, return to oven
and cook for additional time.
PIERCING
The skin or
membrane on
some foods will
cause steam to
build up during
cooking. These
foods must be
pierced or a
strip of skin
should be
peeled off
before cooking to allow the steam to escape.
Eggs, potatoes, apples, sausages etc, will all
need to be pierced before cooking. DO NOT
ATTEMPT TO BOIL EGGS IN THEIR
SHELLS.
MOISTURE
CONTENT
Many fresh
foods e.g.
vegetables and
fruit, vary in
their moisture
content
throughout the
season. Jacket
potatoes are a
particular example of this. For this reason
cooking times may have to be adjusted
throughout the year. Dry ingredients e.g. rice,
pasta, can dry out further during storage and
cooking times may differ from ingredients
freshly purchased.
CLING FILM
Cling film helps
keep the food
moist and the
trapped steam
assists in
speeding up
cooking times.
However it
should be
pierced before |
cooking, to | |
allow excess steam to escape. Always take
care when removing cling film from a dish as
the build-up of steam will be very hot. Always
purchase cling film that states on the packet
“suitable for microwave cooking” and use as

DISH SIZE
Follow the dish sizes given in
the recipes, as these affect the
cooking and reheating times. A
quantity of food spread in a
bigger dish cooks and reheats
more quickly.
DENSITY
Porous airy foods heat more
quickly than dense heavy foods.
TURNING AND STIRRING
Some foods require stirring
during cooking. Meat and poultry
should be turned after half the
cooking time. Remove metal
spoon when microwaving.
AER is ss or...
QUANTITY
Small quantities cook faster than
large quantities, also small
meals will reheat more quickly
than large portions.
COVERING
Cover foods with microwave cling
film or a self-fitting lid. Cover fish,
vegetables, casseroles, soups.
Do not cover cakes, sauces,
jacket potatoes, pastry items.
LIQUIDS
All liquids must be stirred before
and during heating. Water
especially must be stirred before
and during heating, to avoid
eruption. Do not heat liquids that
have Previously been boiled. DO
NOT OVERHEAT. Remove
metal spoon when microwaving.
SPACING
Foods cook more quickly and
evenly if spaced apart. NEVER
pile foods on top of each other.
Fabs
ARRANGING
Individual foods e.g. chicken
portions or chops, should be
placed on a dish so that the
thicker parts are to the outside,
CHECKING FOOD
It is essential that food is checked
during and after a recommended
cooking time, even if an AUTO
PROGRAM has been used (just
as you would check food cooked
in a conventional oven). Return
the food to the oven for further
cooking if necessary.
SHAPE
Even shapes cook evenly. Food
Cooks better by microwave when
in a round container rather than
square.
Cl a
rp
STARTING TEMPERATURE
The colder the food, the longer it
takes to heat up. Food from a
fridge takes longer to reheat
than food at room temperature.
CLEANING
As microwaves work on food
particles, keep your oven clean
at all times. Stubborn spots of
food can be removed by using a
branded oven Cleaner, sprayed
onto a soft cloth, always wipe the
oven dry after cleaning. Avoid
any plastic parts and door area.
The back of the oven has a
catalytic lining which is self
cleaning.

Jacket Potatoes
Varieties of potatoes vary in their
suitability for cooking by microwave. We
recommend Maris Piper for consistently good
results. The cooking times given may need

Defrosting Guidelines
By selecting the DEFROST power level
from the microwave power pad, and
setting a time, you can defrost food in
your microwave. The biggest problem is
getting the inside defrosted before the
outside starts to cook.
For this reason a defrost program
alternates between a defrost power and
a standing time. The name for this type
of defrost is cyclic and during the
Separate chops and small items
e.g. bread slices where possible.
Turn dense foods and meat 2/3
times during defrosting.
standing stages there is not any
microwave power in the oven, although
the light will remain on and the turntable
will turn. The automatic stand times
ensure a more even defrost but it is still
necessary to allow for standing time
before use. Place foods in a suitable
container. Meat joints and chickens
should be placed on an upturned saucer
or on a plastic rack if you have one.
Chickens and joints of meat will
require shielding during defrosting.
Break up small items e.g. minced
meat, frequently during defrosting.
TIPS
1
Check foods during
defrosting. Foods vary in
their defrosting speed.
It is not necessary to
cover the food.
Always turn or stir the
food especially when
the oven “beeps”. Shield if
necessary (see point 5).
Minced meat/chops/chicken
portions should be broken
up or separated as soon
as possible and placed in
a single layer.
Shielding prevents food
cooking. It is essential
when defrosting chickens
and joints of meat. The
outside thaws out first, so
protect wings/breast/fat
with smooth pieces of
aluminium foil secured with
cocktail sticks.
Allow standing time so
that the centre of the food
thaws out.
(minimum 1 hour for joints
of meat and whole
chickens)

When grilling foods the Glass Turntable, Metal Tray and High Rack should be in position.
Place food on High Rack on the Metal The High Rack will allow fat to drip If grilling fish or small items, place the
Tray on the Turntable. through into the Metal Tray to reduce Metal Tray on top of the High Rack.
excess splatter and smoke when grilling
steaks, chops and other fatty foods.
Most foods require turning halfway
during cooking. When turning food, open
oven door and CAREFULLY remove the
Metal Tray and High Rack by holding the
accessories firmly. Use oven gloves
when removing accessories as they will
be very hot, and so will the roof and
walls of the oven.
After turning, return food to the oven,
close door and press START. The oven
will continue to count down the
remaining cooking time. It is quite safe to
open the oven door at any time to check
the progress of the food as it is grilling.
GUIDELINES
1. There is no microwave power on the GRILL only program.
Use the accessories provided, as explained above.
The Grill will only operate with the oven door closed.
Most meat items e.g. bacon, sausages, chops can be cooked on the hottest setting - GRILL 1. This setting is also suitable for
toasting bread, muffins and teacakes etc.
GRILL 2 and GRILL 3 are used for more delicate foods or those that require a longer grill time e.g. fish.
DO NOT PREHEAT THE GRILL.
NEVER COVER THE FOOD WHEN GRILLING.
ALWAYS USE OVEN GLOVES WHEN REMOVING THE FOOD AND ACCESSORIES AFTER GRILLING AS THE OVEN
AND ACCESSORIES WILL BE VERY HOT.
After Grilling it is important that the Grill accessories are removed for cleaning before reuse and that the oven walls and floor
are wiped with a cloth squeezed in hot soapy water to remove any grease. DO NOT PUT ACCESSORIES IN DISH
WASHER. It is not necessary to clean the back of the oven which has a catalytic self clean lining.

Combination Cooking
Your oven has three methods of cooking by Combination.
1. Convection and Microwave
COMBINATION cooking is ideal for many
foods. The microwave power cooks them
quickly, whilst the oven, grill or both gives the
traditional browning and crispness.
All this happens simultaneously resulting in
most foods being cooked in 172-213 of the
2, Grill and Microwave
3. TURBO-BAKE and Microwave
It is possible to use smooth seamed metal
tins and foil containers on COMBINATION but
they must be placed directly onto the metal
tray on the glass turntable. They must not be
placed directly onto the Low Rack, or
Panacrunch Pan, or arcing may occur.
container or re-program to CONVECTION
only.
To cook successfully by COMBINATION you
should always use a minimum of 200 g (702)
food. Small quantities should be cooked by
Convection, Grill or TURBO-BAKE.
If you experience arcing, which is when you
see blue sparks or hear crackling noises, the
metal container is unsuitable or you have
insufficient food in the oven. You should stop
the program immediately and change the
conventional cooking time.
There is no need to preheat on
COMBINATION programs, EXCEPT when
cooking pastry and using the Panacrunch
Pan.

Combination 1. Convection and Microwave
This is the most popular combination mode combining convection heat with microwave power. Casseroles, meat joints, jacket potatoes and
pastries are very successful using this combination. Unsuitable foods are those which contain whisked eggs, meringues, rich fruit cakes, biscuits
and yorkshire puddings.
It is not necessary to preheat on combination except when cooking pastry dishes, 10 achieve a better result. For pastry dishes preheat oven 10

Increasing and Decreasing Recipes
INCREASING RECIPES
* To increase a recipe from 4 to 6 servings, increase each
ingredient listed by half. To double the quantity, simply double every
ingredient listed.
° Do not forget that large quantities will require a larger dish. Make
sure that it is deep enough to prevent the recipe from boiling over
during cooking.
° Cover as directed in the recipe. Stir or rearrange foods as
recommended.
Increase the stand times by 5 mins. per Ib / 450 g.
* Always check the recipe during cooking.
* When increasing the ingredients to 6 servings, add an extra one
third of the original cooking time, i.e.. 30 mins. on MEDIUM power
for 4 servings will become 40 mins. on MEDIUM power for
6 servings.
° When doubling a recipe from 4 to 8 add on half the original
cooking time, i.e. 30 mins. on MEDIUM power for 4 servings will
become 45 mins. on MEDIUM power for 8 servings.
DECREASING RECIPES
° To decrease a recipe from 4 servings to 2 servings, halve the
ingredients listed.
* Choose a dish that is proportionally smaller than the one
recommended in the recipe, however make sure it is deep enough
to stop food boiling over.
® Allow half to two-thirds of the original cooking time, i.e. 30 mins. on
MEDIUM power for 4 servings will become 15-20 mins. on
MEDIUM power for 2 servings.
Using Recipes from Other Books
The best way to convert a family favourite dish is to find a similar
recipe in a cookery book to give you a guide to the correct method
and timings to use.
Many cookbooks refer to 650W ovens, however since 1990 oven
output powers have been set by a new standard (IEC). When using
other cookbooks, the 1000 W output power of your oven must be
allowed for. Use the same power level suggested e.g. HIGH or
MEDIUM and select the same cooking time suggested, however
CHECK the progress of the food during cooking and adjust the time if
necessary.
Cooking for One
® For one serving quarter ALL ingredients listed.
* Choose a dish that is proportionally smaller than the one
recommended in the recipe.
* Use the same cooking power recommended in the original recipe.
* Start by cooking for one quarter of the recommended cooking time,
although extra time in most cases will be required.
52
* Always check the food during cooking.
* There is not a great saving for reduced quantities of soups,
casseroles, stews and rice, as a minimum time is required to
tenderise meats and blend flavours.
* When cooking for one it often makes sense to cook for two and
plate up both meals. Freeze one meal for a later date.

Panacrunch Pan
THE “CONCEPT”
Some foods cooked by microwave can become soft and soggy.
Your Panacrunch Pan accessory will brown and crisp pizzas,
quiches, pies and breaded products just as a conventional
oven. Your Panasonic Panacrunch Pan works by absorbing
microwave energy and transferring this as heat to crisp the
base of the food. The microwave oven then heats up the food
directly and browns the food by the grill. The heating effect of
the pan is maximised by the non-stick surface.
USING THE PANACRUNCH PAN (Manual operation)
® For best results, pre-heat the pan before using. Place directly
on the Glass Turntable and pre-heat on Combination Grill 1 +
Medium power for 4 minutes. To assist browning, brush the
food with oil for items such as meat chops and chicken pieces.
® Remove the pan from the oven and place the food in the pan.
Use the Panacrunch Pan handle or oven gloves as the pan
will be very hot. For best results, it is important that the food is
placed on the pan immediately after pre-heating. Performance
cannot be guaranteed with a time delay.
® Place the pan on the Glass Turntable and cook according to
the guidelines shown in the re-heating and cooking charts, (see
pages 40-51).
NOTES:
1.
2.
Do not pre-heat the pan for more than 8 minutes.
Always place the pan in the centre of the Glass
Turntable and ensure it does not touch the wall of the
oven cavity. Failure to do so, may cause sparking
which would damage the cavity.
. Always use the Pan on the Glass Turntable. Do not
use with the Wire Racks or Metal Tray.
. Always use the Panacrunch Pan handle or oven
gloves when handling the hot pan.
5. Ensure all food packaging is removed before cooking.
6. Do not place any heat-sensitive materials on the hot
pan as this may cause burning.
7. The pan can be used in a conventional oven.
8. For best results, use the pan on COMBINATION
GRILL and MICROWAVE.
CARE OF THE PAN
+
+
Never use any sharp utensils on the pan as this will
damage the non-stick surface.
After use, wash the pan in hot soapy water and rinse
in hot water. Do not use any abrasive cleaning
substances or scouring pads as this will damage the
surface of the pan.
The pan is dishwasher safe.

Auto Weight Cook Programs
This feature allows you to cook or reheat fourteen foods by setting the weight only. The oven determines the Microwave power level and/or

The pad can be pressed once or
twice to select one of the two
programs available.
When you select an automatic program symbols will appear in the display to show the cooking mode that will be used and the accessories that
are needed, in addition to the turntable. These are what they mean:-
Microwave Convection <> Metal tray | | High rack
Gril samy Low ack pizza pan
Panacrunch Pan
Guidelines for Use
The Auto Weight Programs are designed to take the guesswork out of cooking or reheating your food. They must ONLY be used for the foods
described.
1. Only cook foods within the weight ranges described (see table below).
2. Only use the accessories as indicated on pages 37-38.
3. DO NOT cover food unless stated, as programs 7-14 use a Combination of Microwave and Grill and/or Convection and it will prevent the food
browning. The heat of the grill will also melt any plastic covering.
4. Most foods benefit from a STANDING time after cooking on an Auto Program, to allow heat to continue conducting to the centre.
5. To allow for some variations that occur in food, check that food is thoroughly cooked and piping hot before serving.
6. ALWAYS weigh the chicken, DO NOT rely on the packet weight.

POINTS FOR CHECKING
Always check that food is piping hot after reheating in the microwave. If unsure return to oven. Foods will still require a STAND TIME, especially if they
cannot be stirred. The denser the food the longer the stand time.

Cooking and Reheating Guidelines
Most foods reheat very quickly in your oven by HIGH power. Meals can be brought
back to serving temperature in just minutes and will taste freshly cooked and NOT
leftover. Always check food is piping hot and return to oven if necessary.
As a general rule, always cover wet foods, e.g. soups, casseroles and plated meals.
Do not cover dry foods e.g. bread rolls, mince pies, sausage rolls etc.
The charts on pages 40-51 show you the best way to cook or reheat your favourite
foods. The best method depends on the type of food.
Remember when cooking or reheating any food that it should be stirred or turned
wherever possible. This ensures even cooking or reheating on the outside and in the
centre.
When is food reheated?
Food that has been reheated or cooked should be served “piping hot” i.e. steam
should be visibly emitted from all parts. As long as good hygiene practices have
been followed during the preparation and storage of the food, then cooking or
reheating presents no safety risks.
Foods that cannot be stirred should be cut with a knife to test that they are
adequately heated throughout. Even if a manufacturer’s instructions or the times in
the cookbook have been followed, it is still important to check the food is heated
thoroughly. If in doubt, always return to the oven for further reheating.
If you cannot find the equivalent food in the chart then choose a similar type and
size listed and adjust the cooking time if necessary.
PLATED MEALS
Everyone's appetite varies and reheat
times depend on meal contents. Dense
items e.g. mashed potato, should be
spread out well. If a lot of gravy is
added, extra time may be required.
Place denser items to the outside of the
plate. Between 3-5 mins. on HIGH
power will reheat an average portion. If
stacking two meals, heat on HIGH
power for 6-7 mins. and change the
meals over halfway.
CANNED FOODS
Remove foods from can and place in a
suitable dish before heating.
SOUPS
Use a bowl and stir before heating and
at least once through reheat time and
again at the end.
CASSEROLES
Stir halfway through and again at the
end of heating.
MINCE PIES - CAUTION
REMEMBER even if the pastry is cold
to the touch, the filling will be piping hot
and will warm the pastry through. Take
care not to overheat otherwise burning
can occur due to the high fat and sugar
content of the filling. Check the
temperature of the filling before
consuming to avoid burning your mouth.
CHRISTMAS PUDDINGS AND
LIQUIDS - CAUTION
Take great care when reheating these
items. See Page 7.
Do not leave unattended.
Do not add extra alcohol.
BABIES’ BOTTLES - CAUTION
Milk or formula MUST be shaken
thoroughly before heating and again at
the end and tested carefully before
feeding a baby. See page 40 for details.
WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU
USE YOUR MICROWAVE TO
STERILISE BABIES’ BOTTLES. If you
have a special microwave steriliser we
urge extreme caution, due to the low
quantity of water involved. It is vital to
follow the manufacturers instructions
implicitly.
