General safety
Microwave heating of beverages may result in delayed eruptive boiling; always
use caution when handling the container. Always allow beverages to stand at least
20 seconds before handling. If necessary, stir during heating. Always stir after
heating.
In the event of scalding, follow these First Aid instructions:
1. Immerse the scalded area in cold water for at least 10 minutes.
2. Cover with a clean, dry dressing.
3. Do not apply any creams, oils, or lotions.
To avoid damaging the tray or rack, do not put the tray or rack in water shortly
after cooking.
Do not use the oven for deep fat frying because the oil temperature cannot be
controlled. This could result in a sudden boil over of hot oils.

How a microwave oven works
Cooking/Reheating
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy released
enables food to be cooked or reheated without changing either the form or the
colour.
You can use your microwave oven to:
• Defrost
• Reheat
• Cook
Cooking principle.
1. The microwaves generated by the
magnetron reflected at cavity and are
distributed uniformly as the food rotates
on the turntable. The food is thus cooked
evenly.
2. The microwaves are absorbed by the
food up to a depth of about 1 inch
(2.5 cm). Cooking then continues as the
heat is dissipated within the food.
3. Cooking times vary according to the
container used and the properties of the
food:
• Quantity and density
• Water content
• Initial temperature (refrigerated or
not)
The following procedure explains how to cook or reheat food.
CAUTION
•
•
ALWAYS check your cooking settings before leaving the oven unattended.
Never turn the microwave oven on when it is empty.
Open the door. Place the food in the centre of the turntable. Close the door.
1. Set the power level to maximum by
turning Cooking Power Control dial.
(Maximum power: 800 W)
2. Set the time by turning Time/Weight
(
) dial.
2
The oven light comes on and the
turntable starts rotating.
1) Cooking starts and when it has
finished the oven beeps 4 times.
2) The end reminder signal will beep
3 times (once every minute).
3) The current time is displayed again.
1
CAUTION
As the centre of the food is cooked by heat dissipation, cooking continues even
when you have taken the food out of the oven. Standing times specified in recipes
and in this booklet must therefore be respected to ensure:
• Even cooking of the food right to the centre.
• The same temperature throughout the food.
NOTE
You can change the power level during cooking by turning the Cooking Power Control
dial.

Setting the time
Power levels and time variations
Your microwave oven has an inbuilt clock. When power is supplied, “:0”, “88:88” or
“12:00” is automatically displayed on the display.
Please set the current time. The time can be displayed in either the 24-hour or
12-hour notation. You must set the clock:
• When you first install your microwave oven
• After a power failure
The power level function enables you to adapt the amount of energy dissipated
and thus the time required to cook or reheat your food, according to its type and
quantity.

Microwaves
Comments
✓
Must remove the lid. Suitable for
warming only.
May cause arcing or fire.
Metal
Microwave energy actually penetrates food, attracted and absorbed by its water,
fat and sugar content.
The microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move rapidly. The rapid
movement of these molecules creates friction and the resulting heat cooks the
food.

Cooking
Cookware for microwave cooking:
Cookware must allow microwave energy to pass through it for maximum
efficiency. Microwaves are reflected by metal, such as stainless steel, aluminium
and copper, but they can penetrate through ceramic, glass, porcelain and plastic as
well as paper and wood. So food must never be cooked in metal containers.
Paper
•
Plates, cups,
napkins and
kitchen paper
✓
For short cooking times and warming.
Also to absorb excess moisture.
•
Recycled paper
✗
May cause arcing.
Plastic
Cooking guide
•
Containers
✓
Particularly if heat-resistant
thermoplastic. Some other plastics may
warp or discolour at high temperatures.
Do not use Melamine plastic.
•
Cling film
✓
Can be used to retain moisture. Should
not touch the food. Take care when
removing the film as hot steam will
escape.
Freezer bags
✓✗
Only if boilable or oven-proof. Should not
be airtight. Prick with a fork, if necessary.
Wax or greaseproof paper
✓
Can be used to retain moisture and
prevent spattering.

Food suitable for microwave cooking:
Many kinds of food are suitable for microwave cooking, including fresh or frozen
vegetables, fruit, pasta, rice, grains, beans, fish, and meat. Sauces, custard, soups,
steamed puddings, preserves, and chutneys can also be cooked in a microwave
oven. Generally speaking, microwave cooking is ideal for any food that would
normally be prepared on a hob. Melting butter or chocolate, for example (see the
chapter with tips, techniques and hints).
Covering during cooking
To cover the food during cooking is very important, as the evaporated water rises
as steam and contributes to cooking process. Food can be covered in different
ways: e.g. with a ceramic plate, plastic cover or microwave suitable cling film.
Standing times
After cooking is over food the standing time is important to allow the temperature
to even out within the food.
