CHAPTER 1 – GENERAL
1.1 IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNINGS
Read these warnings carefully before starting using the oven for the first time. This will help to obtain the
best results and to avoid mistakes.
1)
This oven has been designed to defrost, reheat and cook food in the home. It must not be used for any
other purpose, nor modified or tampered with in any way.
2)
Before connecting the oven to the mains, check to be certain that the door closes tightly. Also check that
the metal frame is not warped and that the hinges and hooks have not loosened. In the event that these
parts have been damaged, the microwave oven cannot be used until a qualified technician has made the
necessary repairs.
3)
Do not attempt to operate the oven with the door open by tampering with the safety devices.
4)
Do not operate the oven if objects of any kind get stuck between the front panel of the oven and the door.
Always keep the inside of the door (E) clean, using a damp cloth and non-abrasive detergents. Do not
allow dirt or food remains to accumulate between the front panel of the oven and the door.
5)
Never place heavy objects on the door when open. Never force the open door downwards. Never place
hot pots/dishes on the open door.
6)
Do not operate the oven if the feeder cable or the plug is damaged, as this may result in electric shocks.
7)
Adjustment, repair and replacement of the feeder cable should only be carried out by personnel trained
by the manufacturer or by his Service Centre. Repairs carried out by unqualified personnel may be dangerous.
8)
If the oven should begin to smoke as a result of food burning inside, DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR. Turn
the oven off immediately or disconnect the plug from the power socket.
9)
Children or infirm persons should not be allowed to use this product unsupervised.
Do not allow children near the oven when it is in operation, as this may result in severe burns.
10) In order to avoid overheating and the consequent risk of fire, it is advisable to supervise the oven when
cooking food in disposable containers made of plastic, cardboard or other inflammable materials, and
when heating small quantities of food.
11) During use, the oven will become hot. Never touch the electrical element located in the oven cavity when
the oven is on.
12) When heating liquids (water, coffee, milk, etc.) the contents may suddenly start to boil and spill violently
as a result of delayed boiling, causing scalding. To avoid this happening, you should place a heat-resistant plastic spoon or a glass rod in the container before starting to heat liquids.
13) Do not heat spirits with a high alcohol content, nor large quantities of oil, as these could catch fire!
14) After heating baby food (contained in feeding bottles or small jars) ALWAYS check the food before it
28

is eaten in order to avoid burns. It is also advisable to stir or shake the food in order to ensure even
temperature.
When using commercially available bottle sterilisers, before turning the oven on, ALWAYS make sure
the container is filled with the quantity of water indicated by the manufacturer.
N.B. When the oven is used for the first time it is possible that, for a period of approx. 10 minutes, it
may produce a “new” smell and a small amount of smoke. This is only a result of protective substances
applied to the heating element.

CHAPTER 1 - GENERAL
1.5 OVENWARE TO BE USED
In the “Microwave Only” and “Microwave Combined” modes, all types of containers in glass (preferably
Pyrex), ceramics, china and clay may be used provided that they are undecorated and free of metal parts (i.e.
gilt trimmings, handles, feet etc.). Heat resistant plastic containers can also be used, but only for “Microwave
Only” cooking. If you are still doubtful about using a particular container, you can perform a simple test. Place
the empty container in the oven for 30 seconds at maximum power (“Microwave Only” function).
If the container is still cold or only slightly warm, it is suitable for microwave cooking.
If it is very hot or gives out sparks, it is not suitable.
Containers in heat-resistant plastic may also be used. Paper napkins, cardboard trays and disposable plastic
plates can also be used for short cooking times. The size and shape of the containers must be such as to allow
them to rotate properly inside the oven.
Metal, wood, cane and crystal containers are not suitable for microwave cooking.
It is worth remembering that - since microwaves heat the food, not the dish - it is possible to cook the food
directly on the plate on which it is to be served. This means that you do not need to use, and wash up,
saucepans. However, remember that heat may be transferred from the food itself to the plate, making it necessary to use an oven glove.
If the oven has the “Fan Oven Only” or “Grill only” settings, all types of ovenware may be used.
In any case, observe the guidelines shown in the following table:

CHAPTER 1 - GENERAL
1.6 FUNDAMENTAL RULES FOR MICROWAVE COOKING
1)
Remember to stir food several times during cooking to ensure temperature evenness and to reduce cooking time.
2)
It is also advisable to turn food during cooking.
3)
Food with skin, shell or peel (e.g. apples, potatoes, tomatoes, frankfurters and fish) should be pierced in
several places with a fork in order to let out the steam without the skin or peel bursting.
4)
If many portions of the same food are cooked, for example if you want to boil potatoes, arrange them in
a ring around the dish to obtain even cooking.
5)
Cover the food with transparent film, grease proof paper, a glass lid or simply with an upturned plate
in order to reduce the amount of condensation that forms inside the oven, on the shelf on which the food
rests or around the door. Also food with a high water content (e.g. vegetables) cooks better if covered.
Covering food also helps keep the inside of the oven clean. Use transparent film which is suitable for
microwave ovens.
6)
In “Microwave Only” mode and in the “Combined” modes, the oven must under no circumstances be
preheated or made to work when empty (without food), as sparks may be produced which would
result in damage to the appliance.
7)
Do not cook eggs in their shells: the pressure which builds up on the inside would cause the egg to
explode, even after cooking has finished. Do not heat up eggs which have already been cooked, unless
they are scrambled.
8)
Do not forget to open containers which are air-tight or sealed before heating or cooking food in the oven.
The pressure on the inside of the container would rise, causing them to explode even after cooking has
finished.

SUGGESTIONS AND TIME GRIDS
3.1 DEFROSTING
• Frozen food in plastic bags, plastic film or cardboard packets can be placed directly in the oven for defrosting as
long as the packet has no metal parts (e.g. metal twist ties or staples).
• Certain foods, such as vegetables and fish, do not require complete defrosting before cooking.
• Boiled foods, stews and meat sauces defrost better and more quickly if they are stirred from time to time, turned
over and/or separated.
• Meat, fish and fruit lose a certain amount of liquid during defrosting. Defrost these foods in a bowl.
• It is advisable to separate each individual piece of meat into its own bag before putting it into the freezer. This will
enable you to save precious preparation time.
• It is important to observe the standing times immediately after defrosting, before cooking; the standing time (in
minutes) is the length of time for which the food must be left to stand to allow the heat to continue spreading evenly in the food.

CHAPTER 3 – USING THE OVEN: SUGGESTIONS AND TIME GRIDS
3.2 REHEATING
Reheating food is one of the modes in which your microwave oven displays all its usefulness and efficiency. Compared to
traditional methods, using a microwave obviously saves time and therefore electricity.
• It is advisable to reheat food (especially if it is frozen) to a temperature of at least 70°C (it must be piping hot). This means
the food will not be ready to eat immediately because it is too hot!) but it will be completely sterilised.
• In order to reheat pre-cooked or frozen food, always observe the following rules:
- always remove the food from metal containers
- cover it with transparent film (of the kind suitable for microwave ovens) or grease proof paper so that all the natural
flavour is preserved and the oven will stay cleaner; the food may also be covered with a an upturned plate;
- if possible, stir or turn the food frequently in order to speed up the reheating process and to make it cook more evenly;
- follow the cooking times shown on the packet with considerable caution; remember that, under certain conditions, the
times shown must be increased.
• Frozen food must be defrosted before being reheated. The lower the initial temperature of the food, the longer the reheating time will have to be.
Note: some dishes can also easily be reheated by using the “Automatic Functions” pre-memorised recipes (see table on
page 41).

CHAPTER 3 – USING THE OVEN: SUGGESTIONS AND TIME GRIDS
3.3 - COOKING STARTERS, PASTA AND ENTREES
Vegetable soups and other soups in general require less liquid because in a microwave oven evaporation is rather
minimal. Salt must be added only at the end of cooking or during standing time as it dehydrates the food.
It is fair to say that the time needed to cook rice in the microwave oven (as indeed for pasta) is more or less equal to
that needed to cook it on a stove in the traditional manner. The advantage of preparing a risotto in a microwave
oven is that it does not need stirring continually (this only needs to be done 2 or 3 times).

3.4 - COOKING MEAT
Cooking is closely linked to the size and uniformity of the food which is to be cooked: kebabs cook faster then a roast
because they consist of smaller, more evenly-sized pieces of meat. To keep roasts, chicken and kebabs moist, it is
advisable to add 1 or 2 cups of water at the start of cooking.

3.5 - COOKING SIDE DISHES AND VEGETABLES
Vegetables cooked in a microwave oven preserve their colour and nutritional value better than in traditional cooking.
Wash and peel the vegetables before starting to cook.
Larger vegetables should be cut into evenly-sized pieces.
Add approx. 5 spoonfuls of water for every 500g of vegetables (vegetables which have a high fibre content require more water).
The vegetables should always be covered with transparent film.
Stir at least once halfway through cooking and add a little salt only at the end.
Warning: the cooking times in the table are purely intended as guidelines and are on the basis of the food’s weight and initial temperature as well as its texture and structure.

3.9 - SIMULTANEOUS COOKING ON 2 LEVELS
By using the spacer wire rack at medium height with the microwave-only function, you can defrost, reheat and
cook foods at the same time, even different dishes on two levels. The special double-microwave-emission
system makes possible, in fact, a perfect distribution of energy.
When you wish to cook two food dishes at the same time, all you have to do is keep these basic rules in mind:
1) The cooking times for food dishes cooked at the same time are different from those for the cooking of single
dishes. So always consult the reference table on page 39.
Times for simultaneous cooking
Potatoes
16 min
(above)
Goulash
40 min
(below)
Cooking times for single dishes
Potatoes
Goulash

30 - 35 min
2) Be careful to ALWAYS place on the MEDIUM WIRE RACK t that food which requires less cookig time: it will
thus be easier to remove the upper pan.
Take the grill out and finish cooking the food underneath.

CHAPTER 4 – CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
4.1 CLEANING
Before any cleaning and maintenance are carried out, always disconnect the
plug from the power socket and wait for the appliance to cool down.
150 300 500 750 1000 WATT
The internal cavity of your oven is covered with a special non-stick finish to which
splashes and food particles do not stick, thus making cleaning particularly simple. Always keep the microwave outlet cover (C) clean and free from grease and
splashes of fat.
Do not use abrasive detergents, wire sponges and sharp metal tools when cleaning the external surface of the oven. Also be careful to ensure that water or liquid detergent does not penetrate the air and steam vent grilles on the top of the
appliance.
It is also advisable not to use alcohol, abrasive detergents or ammonia-based
detergents to clean the internal and external surfaces of the door.
Always keep the inside of the door clean to ensure that it closes properly, so that
dirt and food residues do not become trapped between the door and the front
panel of the oven.
Check from time to time that the ventilation openings located on the back and
underneath the cabinet which houses the appliance are free from any obstructions or dust.
Contact your Service Assistance Centre for any necessary controls of the ventilation openings found on the back of the appliance.
It is necessary to remove the turntable (H) and its corresponding support (I) periodically in order to clean them; the bottom of the oven should also be cleaned.
Wash the turntable and its support in soapy water using mild soap. They can
also be washed in a dishwasher.
Do not immerse the turntable in cold water after prolonged heating; the sudden change in temperature would cause it to crack.
The turntable motor is sealed. Nevertheless, be careful to avoid the water penetrating under the turntable spindle (D) when the bottom of the oven is being
cleaned.
To make the cleaning of the inside of the oven easier, the upper heating element
can be lowered by turning the ceramic hook.
IMPORTANT: After cleaning, reposition and refasten the electrical element. The
oven must not be used with the element in the lowered positioned.
