MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS
Amount of food
Releasing pressure in foods
• If you increase or decrease the amount of food you
prepare, the time it takes to cook that food will also
change. For example, if you double a recipe, add a
little more than half the original cooking time. Check
for doneness and, if necessary, add more time in
small increments.
• Several foods (for example: baked potatoes,
sausages, egg yolks, and some fruits) are tightly
covered by a skin or membrane. Steam can build up
under the membrane during cooking, causing the food
to burst. To relieve the pressure and to prevent
bursting, pierce these foods before cooking with a
fork, cocktail pick, or toothpick.
Starting temperature of food
• The lower the temperature of the food being put into
the microwave oven, the longer it takes to cook. Food
at room temperature will be re-heated more quickly
than food at refrigerator temperature.
Composition of food
• Food with a lot of fat and sugar will be heated
faster than food containing a lot of water. Fat and
sugar will also reach a higher temperature than water
in the cooking process.
• The more dense the food, the longer it takes to heat.
Very dense food like meat takes longer to heat than
lighter, more porous food like sponge cakes.
Size and shape
• Smaller pieces of food will cook faster than larger
pieces. Also, same-shaped pieces cook more evenly
than different-shaped pieces.
• With foods that have different thicknesses, the
thinner parts will cook faster than the thicker parts.
Place the thinner parts of chicken wings and legs in
the center of the dish.
Stirring, turning foods
• Stirring and turning foods spreads heat quickly to
the center of the dish and avoids overcooking at the
outer edges of the food.
Covering food
Cover food to:
• Reduce splattering
• Shorten cooking times
• Keep food moist
Using standing time
• Always allow food to stand either in or out of the
oven after cooking power stops. Standing time after
defrosting and cooking allows the temperature to
evenly spread throughout the food, improving the
cooking results. For inside oven standing time, you
can program a 0 power second stage of the cooking
cycle. See cooking with more than on cook cycle
cooking.
• The length of the standing time depends on how
much food you are cooking and how dense it is.
Sometimes it can be as short as the time it takes you
to remove the food from the oven and take it to the
serving table. However, with larger, denser food item,
the standing time may be as long as 10 minutes.
Arranging food
For best results, place food evenly on the plate. You
can do this in several ways:
• If you are cooking several items of the same food,
such as baked potatoes, place them in a ring pattern
for uniform cooking.
• When cooking foods of uneven shapes or
thickness, such as chicken breasts, place the
smaller or thinner area of the food towards the center
of the dish where it will be heated last.
• Layer thin slices of meat on top of each other.
• When you cook or reheat whole fish, score the
skin – this prevents cracking.
• Do not let food or a container touch the top or sides
of the oven. This will prevent possible arcing.

MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS
Using aluminum foil
Removing the rack
Metal containers should not be used in a microwave
oven. There are, however, some exceptions. If you
have purchased food which is prepackaged in an
aluminum foil container, refer to the instructions on the
package. When using aluminum foil containers,
cooking times may be longer because microwaves will
only penetrate the exposed top of the food and not the
bottom or the sides. If you use aluminum containers
without package instructions, follow these guidelines:
• Place the aluminum foil container in a glass bowl and
add some Water so that it covers the bottom of the
container, but not more than 1/4 in. (.64 cm) deep.
This ensures even heating of the container bottom.
• Always remove the container lid to avoid damage to
the oven.
• Use only undamaged containers.
• Do not use containers taller than 3⁄4 in. (1.9 cm).
• Container must be at least half filled.
• To avoid arcing, there must be a minimum 1⁄4 in.
(64 mm) between the aluminum container and the
walls of the oven and also between two aluminum
containers.
• Always place the container on the turntable.
• Shield parts of food that may cook quickly, such as
wing tips and leg ends of poultry, with small pieces of
aluminum foil.
• Heating food in aluminum foil containers usually
takes up to double the time compared to reheating in
plastic, glass, china, or paper containers.
The time when food is ready will vary depending upon
the type of container you use.
• Let food stand for 2 to 3 minutes after heating so
that heat is spread evenly throughout the container.
• When popping commercially packaged popcorn,
remove the rack and drip pan from the oven; Do
not place the bag of microwave popcorn on the rack
or under the rack. Leave the glass tray in place at all
times.
CAUTION : Popping microwave popcorn with rack and
drip pan can cause fire or damage to your
microwave oven.
Cooking you should not do in
your microwave oven
• Do not do canning of foods in the oven. Closed glass
jars may explode, resulting in damage to the oven.
• Do not use the microwave oven to sterilize objects
(baby bottles, etc.). It is difficult to keep the oven at
the high temperature needed for sterilization.

MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS
Cooking Comparison Guide
Cooking with your new oven offers a wide variety of
food preparation options: microwave cooking,
convection cooking, and combination cooking.
Microwave cooking uses very short, high-frequency
radio waves. The movement of the microwaves through
the food generates heat and cooks most foods faster
than regular methods, while retaining their natural
texture and moisture. Microwave cooking heats food
directly, not the cookware or the interior of the oven.
Reheating is easy and defrosting is particularly
convenient because less time is spent in food
preparation.
Convection cooking constantly circulates heated air
around the food, creating even browning and sealed-in
flavor by the constant motion of hot air over the food
surfaces.
Combination cooking combines microwave energy
with convection to cook with speed and accuracy, while
browning and crisping to perfection.
You can use microwave cooking, convection cooking,
or combination cooking to cook by time. Simply preset
the length of cooking time desired and your oven turns
off automatically.
The following guide shows at a glance the difference
between microwave, convection, and combination
cooking.

MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS
COOKWARE GUIDE
Microwave Cooking
Combination Cooking
Most heat-resistant, non-metallic cookware is safe for
use in your microwave oven.
To test cookware before using, follow these steps:
1. Place the empty cookware in the microwave oven.
2. Measure 1 cup of water in a glass measuring cup
and place it in the oven beside the cookware.
3. Microwave on 100% power for 1 minute. If the dish is
warm, it should not be used for microwave cooking.
• Glass or glass-ceramic baking containers are
recommended. Be sure not to use items with metal
trim as it may cause arcing (sparking) with oven wall
or oven shelf, damaging the cookware, the shelf, or
the oven.
• Heat-resistant plastic microwave cookware (safe to
450°F) may be used, but is not recommended for
foods that require crusting or all-around browning,
because plastic is a poor conductor of heat.
Convection Cooking
• Metal Pans are recommended for all types of baked
products, but especially where browning or crusting is
important.
• Dark or dull finish metal pans are best for breads and
pies because they absorb heat and produce a crisper
crust.
• Shiny aluminum pans are better for cakes, cookies, or
muffins because these pans reflect heat and help
produce a light, tender crust.
• Glass or glass-ceramic casserole or baking dishes
are best suited for egg and cheese recipes due to the
cleanability of glass.

OPERATING TIPS
• For best results, remove fish, shellfish, meat, and
poultry from its original closed paper or plastic
package (wrapper). Otherwise, the wrap will hold
steam and juice close to the foods, which can cause
the outer surface of the foods to cook.
• For best results, shape your ground meat into the
form of a doughnut before freezing. When defrosting,
scrape off thawed meat when the beep sounds and
continue defrosting.
• Place foods in a shallow container or on a microwave
roasting rack to catch drippings.
• For more defrost help, please read Defrosting Tips
following the Auto Defrost Table.
This table shows you food type selections and the
weights you can set for each type. For best results,
loosen or remove covering on food.

DEFROSTING TIPS
• When using Auto Defrost, the weight to be entered
is the net weight in pounds and tenths of pounds (the
weight of the food minus the container).
• Before starting, make sure you have removed any
of the metal twist-ties which often come with frozen
food bags, and replace them with strings or elastic
bands.
• Open containers such as cartons before they are
placed in the oven.
• As food begins to defrost, separate the pieces.
Separated pieces defrost more easily.
• Use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield parts of
food such as chicken wings, leg tips, fish tails, or
areas that start to get warm. Make sure the foil does
not touch the sides, top, or bottom of the oven. The
foil can damage the oven lining.
• Always slit or pierce plastic pouches or packaging.
• For better results, let food stand after defrosting.
(For more information on standing time, see the
Microwave Cooking Tips section.)
• If food is foil wrapped, remove foil and place the
food in a suitable container.
• Turn over food during defrosting or standing time.
Break apart and remove food as required.
• Slit the skins, if any, of frozen food such as sausage.
• Bend plastic pouches of food to ensure even
defrosting.
• Always underestimate defrosting time. If defrosted
food is still icy in the center, return it to the microwave
oven for more defrosting.
• The length of defrosting time varies according to
how solidly the food is frozen.
• The shape of the package affects how quickly food
will defrost. Shallow packages will defrost more
quickly than a deep block.

OPERATION
SENSOR OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS
SENSOR COOK
Sensor Cook allows you to cook most of your favorite
foods without selecting cooking times and power levels.
The oven automatically determines required cooking
time for each food item. When the internal sensor
detects a certain amount of humidity coming from the
food, it will tell the oven how much longer to heat. The
display will show the remaining heating time. For best
results for cooking by Sensor, follow these
recommendations.
Using SENSOR COOK lets you heat common
microwave-prepared foods without needing to program
times and Cook Powers. SENSOR COOK has preset
Cook Power for 6 food categories.
Example: To cook rice.
1. Touch COOK.
2. Touch 6.
When the cook time is over,
you will hear four beeps and
COOK END will display.
1. Food cooked with the sensor system should be at
normal storage temperature.
2. The Glass Tray and the outside of the container
should be dry to assure best cooking results.
3. Foods should always be covered loosely with
microwavable plastic wrap, waxed paper, or a lid.
SENSOR REHEAT
4. Do not open the door or touch STOP/CLEAR during
the sensing time. When sensing time is over, the
oven beeps and the remaining cooking time will
appear in the display window.
At this time you can open the door to stir, turn, or
rearrange the food.
Using SENSOR REHEAT lets you reheat common
microwave-prepared foods without selecting cooking
times and power levels.
Example: To reheat 2 slices of pizza.
1. Touch REHEAT.
SENSOR COOKING GUIDE
2. Touch 4.
Appropriate containers and coverings help assure good
Sensor cooking results.
When the cook time is over,
you will hear four beeps and
COOK END will display.
1. Always use microwavable containers and cover them
with lids or vented plastic wrap.
SENSOR POPCORN
2. Never use tight-sealing plastic covers. They can
prevent steam from escaping and cause food to
overcook.
POPCORN lets you pop commercially packaged
microwave popcorn. Pop only one package at a time.
For best results, use fresh bags of popcorn.
3. Match the amount to the size of the container.
Fill containers at least half full for best results.
4. Be sure the outside of the cooking container and the
inside of the microwave oven are dry before placing
food in the oven. Beads of moisture turning into
steam can mislead the sensor.

OPERATION
TIPS FOR CONVECTION COOKING
This section gives you cooking instructions and
procedures for operating each convection function.
10. Use metal utensils only for convection cooking.
Never use for microwave or combination cooking
since arcing and damage to the oven may occur.
Please read these instructions carefully.
Convection cooking circulates hot air through the oven
cavity with a fan. The constantly moving air surrounds the
food to heat the outer portion quickly, creating even
browning and sealed-in flavor by the constant motion of
hot air over the food surfaces. Your oven uses convection
cooking whenever you use the Convection Button. DO
NOT USE THE OVEN WITHOUT THE TURNTABLE IN
PLACE.
11. After preheating, if you do not open the door, the
oven will automatically hold at the preheated
temperature for 30 minutes.
PRECAUTIONS
• The oven cavity, door, turntable, roller rest, metal tray,
metal rack, and cooking utensils will become very hot.
1. Always use the metal rack on the turntable when
convection cooking.
USE THICK OVEN GLOVES when removing the food,
cooking utensils, metal rack, metal tray, and turntable from
the oven after convection cooking.
2. Do not cover turntable or metal rack with aluminum
foil. It interferes with the flow of air that cooks the food.
• Do not use lightweight plastic containers, plastic wraps,
or paper products during any convection cycle.
3. Round pizza pans are excellent cooking utensils for
many convection-only items. Choose pans that do not
have extended handles.
4. Use convection cooking for items like soufflés,
breads, cookies, angel food cakes, pizza, and for some
meat and fish cooking.
5. Your oven comes equipped with metal tray which can
be used for cooking in convection mode or combination
mode.
6. You do not need to use any special techniques to
adapt your favorite oven recipes to convection cooking;
however, you need to lower oven temperature by 25°F
from recommended temperature mentioned in package
instructions when cooking packaged food in convection
mode.
7. When baking cakes, cookies, breads, rolls, or other
baked foods, most recipes call for preheating. Preheat
the empty oven just as you do a regular oven. You can
start heavier dense foods such as meats, casseroles,
and poultry without preheating.
8. All heatproof cookware or metal utensils can be used
in convection cooking.
9. As in conventional cooking, the distance of the food
from the heat source affects cooking results. Refer to
the charts in this Use and Care Guide.

Example: To set the convection cooking at 375°F for
30 minutes without preheating.
During convection cooking, a heating element is used
to raise the temperature of the air inside the oven.
Convection cooking temperature ranges from 100°F
to 450°F.
It is best to preheat the oven when convection cooking.
Note: Lower oven temperature by 25°F from
package recommended temperature instructions.
The baking time may vary according to the food
condition or individual preference.
1. Touch STOP/CLEAR.
2. Touch CONV.
3. Touch 7.
Example: To set the convection cooking at 325°F for
45 minutes with preheating.
4. Touch START/ENTER.
1. Touch STOP/CLEAR.

NOTE: The temperature range has 10 steps from
100°F to 450°F.
5. Touch 4, 5, 0, and 0.
6. Touch START/ENTER.
NOTES:
• When the oven reaches the set preheat temperature,
five (5) tones will sound and the display will scroll the
message PREHEAT END. The oven will automatically
hold that temperature for 30 minutes.
• The oven temperature drops very quickly when the
door is opened; however, this should not prevent food
from being fully cooked during normal cooking time.
• During convection cooking, the vent fan in the vent
hood will automatically turn on at the 1-speed (lowest
speed) setting to protect the oven.

TIPS FOR COMBINATION
COOKING
COMBINATION ROAST
Example: To roast with combination cooking for
45 minutes at 400°F.
This section gives you instructions to operate each
combination cooking function. Please read these
instructions carefully. Sometimes combination
microwave-convection cooking is suggested to get the
best cooking results since it shortens the cooking time
for foods that normally need a long time to cook. This
cooking process also leaves meats juicy on the inside
and crispy on the outside. In combination cooking, the
convection heat and microwave energy alternate
automatically. Your oven has three preprogrammed
settings that make it easy to use combination cooking.
1. Touch STOP/CLEAR.
2. Touch COMBI.
(Press once for CO-1.
Press twice for CO-2.)
3. Touch 8.
4. Touch START/ENTER.
HELPFUL HINTS FOR
COMBINATION COOKING
5. Touch 4, 5, 0, and 0.
1. Meats may be roasted directly on the metal rack or
in a shallow roasting pan placed on the rack. When
using the metal rack, please check your cooking
guide for information on proper use.
6. Touch START/ENTER.
2. Less tender cuts of beef can be roasted and
tenderized using oven cooking bags.
NOTES:
• The temperature range has 9 steps from 250°F
to 450°F.
• During combination cooking, the exhaust fan in the
vent hood will automatically turn on at the 1-speed
(lowest setting) setting to protect the oven.
3. When baking, check for doneness after cooking
time is up. If not completely done, let stand in oven
for a few minutes to complete cooking.
PRECAUTIONS
TOUCH
COMBI CATEGORY
OVEN
COMBI PAD
TEMPERATURE
1. All cookware used for combination cooking must be
BOTH microwave-safe and oven-safe.
2. During combination baking, some baking cookware
may cause arcing when it comes in contact with the
oven walls or metal accessory racks. Arcing is a
discharge of electricity that occurs when microwaves
come in contact with metal.
— If arcing occurs, immediately stop the cooking
cycle and place a heat resistant dish between the
pan and the metal rack.
— We recommend you use the metal tray supplied
with your oven. It has rubber feet that help prevent
arcing.
— If arcing occurs with other baking cookware, do
not use them for combination cooking.

COOKING
CONVECTION BAKING GUIDELINES
1. Always use the metal rack when convection baking.
Place food directly on rack or place in metal tray
and then place tray on rack.
2. Aluminum pans conduct heat quickly. For most
convection baking, light, shiny finishes give best
results because they prevent overbrowning in the
time it takes to cook the center areas. Pans with
dull (satin-finish) bottoms are recommended for
cake pans and pie pans for best bottom browning.
FOOD
Breads
Cakes
Cookies
Fruits,
Other
Desserts
3. Dark or non-shiny finishes, glass, and pyroceram
absorb heat which may result in dry, crisp crusts.
4. Preheating the oven is recommended when baking
foods by convection.
5. To prevent uneven heating and save energy, open
the oven door to check food as little as possible.

HEATING / REHEATING GUIDE
To heat or reheat successfully in a microwave oven, it is important to follow several guidelines. Measure the
amount of food in order to determine the time needed to reheat. Arrange the food in a circular pattern for best
results. Room temperature food will heat faster than refrigerated food. Canned foods should be taken out of the
can and placed in a microwave-safe container. The food will heat more evenly if covered with a microwave-safe
lid or vented plastic wrap. Remove cover carefully to prevent steam burns. Use the following chart as a guide for
reheating cooked food.

MAINTENANCE
CARING FOR YOUR MICROWAVE
OVEN
To make sure your microwave oven looks good and
works well for a long time, you should maintain it
properly. For proper care, please follow these
instructions carefully.
For interior surfaces: Wash
often with warm, sudsy water
and a sponge or soft cloth. Use
only mild, nonabrasive soaps
or a mild detergent. Be sure to
keep the areas clean where
the door and oven frame
touch when closed. Wipe well
with clean cloth. Over time,
stains can occur on the
surfaces as the result of food particles spattering during
cooking. This is normal.
To clean grass tray and
rotating ring, wash in mild,
sudsy water; for heavily
soiled areas use a mild
cleanser and scouring
sponge. The glass tray and
rotating ring are
dishwasher safe.
For stubborn soil, boil a cup of
water in the oven for 2 to 3
minutes. Steam will soften the
soil. To get rid of odors inside
the oven, boil a cup of water
with some lemon juice or
vinegar in it.
For exterior surfaces and
control panel: Use a soft cloth
with spray glass cleaner. Apply
the spray glass cleaner to the
soft cloth; do not spray directly
on the oven.
NOTE: Abrasive cleansers,
steel wool pads, gritty wash
cloths, some paper towels,
etc., can damage the control panel and the interior and
exterior oven surfaces.

CLEANING THE GREASE
FILTERS
1. Unplug the microwave oven.
2. To remove grease filters, slide each filter to the
side. Pull filters downward and push to the other

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q. Can I use a rack in my microwave oven so that I
may reheat or cook in two levels at a time?
A. Only use the rack that is supplied with your
microwave oven. Use of any other rack can result in
poor cooking performance and/or arcing and may
damage your oven.
Q. Can I use either metal or aluminum pans in my
microwave oven?
A. Usable metal includes aluminum foil for shielding
(use small, flat pieces), and shallow foil trays (if tray
is 3/4 inch deep and filled with food to absorb
microwave energy). Never allow metal to touch
walls or door.
Q. Sometimes the door of my microwave oven
appears wavy. Is this normal?
A. This appearance is normal and does not affect the
operation of your oven.
Q. The glass tray does not move.
A. • The glass tray is not correctly in place. It should be
correct-side up and sitting firmly on the center hub.
• The support is not operating correctly. Remove the
glass tray and restart the oven. Cooking without
the glass tray can give you poor results.
Q. Why does the dish become hot when I
microwave food in it? I thought that this should
not happen.
A. As the food becomes hot it will conduct the heat to
the dish. Use hot pads to remove food after
cooking.
4. Lift up the bulb holder.
Q. What does standing time mean?
A. Standing time means that food should be taken out
of the oven and covered for additional time after
cooking. This process allows the cooking to finish,
saves energy, and frees the oven for other purpose.
Q. Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven?
How do I get the best results?
A. Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn following
manufacturer’s guidelines or use the
preprogrammed Popcorn pad.
Do not use regular paper bags. Use the listening
test by stopping the oven as soon as the popping
slows to a pop every one or two seconds. Do not try
to repop unpopped kernels. You can also use
special microwave poppers. When using a popper,
be sure to follow manufacturer’s directions. Do not
pop popcorn in glass utensils.
5. Replace the bulb with a candelabra-base 20 watt
bulb.
6. Replace the bulb holder, if damaged.
7. Slide the bottom of the vent grille into place. Push
the bottom until it snaps into place. Replace the
mounting screws.
8. Plug in the microwave oven.
Q. Why does steam come out of the air exhaust
vent?
A. Steam is normally produced during cooking. The
microwave oven has been designed to vent this
steam out the top vent.

MICROWAVE UTENSIL GUIDE
USE
DO NOT USE
OVENPROOF GLASS
(treated for high intensity heat):
utility dishes, loaf dishes, pie plates,
cake plates, liquid measuring cups,
casseroles and bowls without metallic
trim.
METAL UTENSILS:
Metal shields the food from microwave energy and produces
uneven cooking. Also avoid metal skewers, thermometers, or foil
trays. Metal utensils can cause arcing, which can damage your
microwave oven.
CHINA:
bowls, cups, serving plates, and platters
without metallic trim.
METAL DECORATION:
Metal-trimmed or metal-banded dinnerware, casserole dishes,
etc. The metal trim interferes with normal cooking and may
damage the oven.
PLASTIC:
Plastic wrap (as a cover)-- lay the plastic
wrap loosely over the dish and press it to
the sides.
Vent plastic wrap by turning back one
edge slightly to allow excess steam to
escape. The dish should be deep
enough so that the plastic wrap will not
touch the food. As the food heats it may
melt the plastic wrap wherever the wrap
touches the food.
Use plastic dishes, cups,
semi-rigid freezer containers and plastic
bags only for short cooking time. Use
these with care because the plastic
may soften from the heat of the food.
PAPER:
Paper towels, waxed paper, paper
napkins, and paper plates with no
metallic trim or design. Look for the
manufacturer's label for use in the
microwave oven.
NOTE:
Do not use recycled paper products in
the microwave oven. They sometimes
contain impurities that cause arcing and
sparking.
NEVER use paper products in the
convection oven.
ALUMINUM FOIL:
Avoid large sheets of aluminum foil because they hinder cooking
and may cause harmful arcing. Use small pieces of foil to shield
poultry legs and wings. Keep ALL aluminum foil at least 1 inch
from the side walls and door of the oven.
WOOD:
Wooden bowls and boards will dry out and may split or crack
when you use them in the microwave oven. Baskets react in the
same way.
TIGHTLY COVERED UTENSILS:
Be sure to leave openings for steam to escape from covered
utensils. Pierce plastic pouches of vegetables or other food items
before cooking. Tightly closed pouches could explode.
BROWN PAPER:
Avoid using brown paper bags.
They absorb too much heat and could burn.
FLAWED OR CHIPPED UTENSILS:
Any utensil that is cracked, flawed, or chipped may break in the
oven.
METAL TWIST TIES:
Remove metal twist ties from plastic or paper bags.
They become hot and could cause a fire.

• check recipe to be sure all directions (amount, time,
and power levels) were correctly followed.
• be sure microwave oven is on a separate circuit.
• be sure food is completely defrosted before cooking.
If food is overcooked:
• check recipe to be sure all directions (amount, power
level, time, size of dish) were followed.
If oven will not cook:
• check that control panel was programmed correctly.
• check that door is firmly closed.
• check that Start was pressed.
• check that probe was inserted correctly
into receptacle.
• check that timer wasn’t started instead of a cook
function.
