About microwave energy
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves. The oven uses its built-in magnetron
to generate microwaves which cook or reheat food without deforming or discolouring the
food.
Before you start
1. The microwaves generated by the
magnetron are distributed uniformly by
the whirling distribution system. This is
why the food is cooked evenly.
2. The microwaves are absorbed into the
food up to a depth of approximately
1 inch (2.5 cm). Then, the microwaves
are dissipated inside the food as cooking
continues.
3. The cooking time is affected by the
following conditions of the food:
• Quantity and density
• Moisture content
• Initial temperature (especially, when
frozen)
NOTE
The cooked food keeps heat in its core after
cooking is complete. This is why you must
observe the standing times specified in
this manual, which ensure that the food is
cooked evenly down to the core.

Reheating
• Do not reheat large-sized foods such as joints of meat, which easily overcook.
• It is safer to reheat foods at lower power levels.
• Stir well or turn over during and after cooking.
• Use caution for liquids or baby foods. Stir well before, during, and after cooking with a
plastic spoon or glass stirring stick to prevent eruptive boiling and scalding. Keep them
inside the oven during the standing time. Allow a longer reheating time than other food
types.
• Recommended standing time after reheating is 2-4 minutes. See the table below for

Power Convection guide
Cooking with Power Convection is a powerful combination of the inner grill heater and the
convection ring heater with fan at side. The hot air blows from the top of the cavity through
holes into the oven. The heating element at top and side and the fan at the side-wall, keeps
the hot air circulating evenly.
Use this mode for biscuits, individual scones, rolls, and cakes as well as fruit cakes, choux,
and soufflés. Before cooking, preheat with guided temperatures.
All conventional ovenproof cookware, baking tins and sheets – anything you would normally
use in a traditional convection oven – can be used.

Convection guide
Convection
In Convection mode, both the heating element and the side-wall fan operate together to
circulate the heat inside the cooking chamber. Use this mode for biscuits, individual scones,
rolls, and cakes as well as fruit cakes, choux, and soufflés. All conventional ovenproof
cookware, baking tins and sheets – anything you would normally use in a traditional
convection oven – can be used.
Microwaves+Convection
This combination mode combines the microwave energy with hot air, resulting in reduced
cooking time and producing a brown, crispy surface of the food. The oven offers 5 different
combination modes for your convenience. Use this for all kinds of meat and poultry as well
as casseroles and gratin dishes, sponge cakes and light fruit cakes, pies and crumbles, roast
vegetables, scones, and breads. Use only ovenproof cookware, such as glasses, potteries, or
bone china without metal trim.
Before cooking, preheat with guided temperatures, and wait until the cycle is complete. Set
the power level and cooking time as instructed below. Use oven gloves when taking out food.
