MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS
Amount of Food
• 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.
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 reheats more quickly than food
at refrigerator temperature.
Composition of Food
• Food with a lot of fat and sugar heats faster than
food containing a lot of water. Fat and sugar also
reach a higher temperature than water during 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 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 cook faster than the thicker parts Place
the thinner parts of chicken wings and legs in the
center of the dish.
Stirring and 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
Releasing Pressure in Foods
• 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.
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,
program a 0 power second stage of the cooking cycle.
See Cooking with More than One Cook Cycle.
• 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 items,
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 to prevent cracking.
• Do not let food or a container touch the top or sides
of the oven. This will prevent possible arcing.
Cover food to:
• reduce splattering
• shorten cooking times
• keep food moist

MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS
Using Aluminum Foil
Metal containers should not be used in a microwave
oven. However, 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 using aluminum
containers without package instructions, follow these
guidelines:
• Place the aluminum foil container in a glass bowl and
add water so that it covers the bottom of the container,
but not more than ¼ 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 ¾ in. (1.9 cm).
• Container must be at least half filled.
• To avoid arcing, there must be a minimum ¼ in.(.64
cm) 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 cooking time 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.
Removing the Rack
• 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
Do Not Can or Sterilize in Oven
• Do not try to can food 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.
- 11 -
and drip pan in place can cause fire or
damage to the microwave oven.
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.
COOKING
METHOD
HEAT SOURCE
BENEFITS
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.
Timed cooking can be set with microwave cooking,
convection cooking, and combination cooking. Preset
the desired length of cooking time and the oven turns
off automatically.

MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS
COOKWARE GUIDE
Microwave Cooking
Most heat-resistant, non-metallic cookware is safe for
use in the microwave oven.
Testing Cookware Before Using
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.
Convection Cooking
Combination Cooking
• Glass or glass-ceramic baking containers are
recommended. Do not use items with metal trim as
they 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.
• 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 to provide
easy cleanup.

INSTRUCTIONS
SENSOR REHEAT
Use SENSOR REHEAT to reheat common microwaveprepared foods without selecting cooking times and
power levels.
Sensor Cook cooks 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

TIPS FOR CONVECTION
COOKING
10. U
se metal utensils only for convection cooking.
Never use for microwave or combination cooking
since arcing and damage to the oven may occur.
This section provides cooking instructions and
procedures for each convection function.
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 through
the constant motion of hot air over the food surfaces.
To use convection cooking, turn the dial to select the
Convection or Combination modes. DO NOT USE THE
OVEN WITHOUT THE TURNTABLE IN PLACE.
1. Always use the metal rack on the turntable when
convection cooking.
2. Do not cover the turntable or metal rack with
aluminum foil. It interferes with the flow of a
11. After preheating, if the door remains closed,
the oven automatically holds at the preheated
temperature for 30 minutes.
PRECAUTIONS
• The oven cavity, door, turntable, roller rest, metal tray,
metal rack, and cooking utensils become very hot.
USE THICK OVEN GLOVES when removing the food,
cooking utensils, metal rack, metal tray, and turntable
from the oven after convection cooking.
• Do not use lightweight plastic containers, plastic
wraps, or paper products during any convection cycle.
4. Use convection cooking for items like soufflés,
breads, cookies, angel food cakes, pizza, and for
some meat and fish.
5. The oven comes equipped with a metal tray which
can be used for cooking in convection mode or
combination mode.
6. No special techniques are necessary to adapt
favorite oven recipes to convection cooking; but
reduce the oven temperature by 25°F from the
recommended temperature when cooking packaged
foods 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 with 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 owner's manual.

OPERATION
CONVECTION
Example: To set for 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: Reduce oven temperature by 25°F from the
temperature recommended on packaged foods.
The baking time may vary according to the food
condition or individual preference.

TIPS FOR COMBINATION
COOKING
COMBINATION ROAST
Example: To roast with combination cooking for
45 minutes at 400°F.
This section provides instructions for each combination
cooking function. Combination microwave-convection
cooking shortens the cooking time for foods that
normally need a long time to cook. It also leaves
meat juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside.
In combination cooking, the convection heat and
microwave energy alternate automatically. The oven
has three preprogrammed settings that make it easy to
use combination cooking.
1. Touch MANUAL COOK.
HELPFUL HINTS FOR
COMBINATION COOKING
1. Meats can be roasted directly on the metal rack or
in a shallow roasting pan placed on the rack. When
using the metal rack, check the cooking guide for
information on proper use.
2. Less tender cuts of beef can be roasted and
tenderized using oven cooking bags.

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
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.
Notes:
• The temperature range has 9 steps from 250°F to
450°F.
• During combination cooking, the exhaust fan in the
vent hood automatically turns on at the 1-speed
(lowest) setting to protect the oven.
- If arcing occurs, immediately stop the cooking cycle
and place a heat resistant dish between the pan and
the metal rack.
- Use the metal tray supplied with the oven. It has
rubber feet that help prevent arcing.
- If arcing occurs with other baking cookware, do not
use them for combination cooking.

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 the 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, read Defrosting Tips following

Note:
Do not use recycled paper products in

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, remove 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.
• Always slit or pierce plastic pouches or packaging.
• If food is foil wrapped, remove foil and place the
food in a suitable container.
• 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.
• 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.
• For better results, let food stand after defrosting.
(For more information on standing time, see the
Microwave Cooking Tips section.)
• Turn over food during defrosting or standing time
Break apart and remove food as required.

COOKING GUIDE
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 pyroceramic
absorb heat which may result in dry, crisp crusts.
4. P
reheating 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 seldom as possible.

COOKING GUIDE
HEATING/REHEATING GUIDE
To heat or reheat successfully in a microwave oven, follow these 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 the cover carefully to prevent steam burns. Use the following chart as a guide for reheating cooked
food.

SMART FEATURES
BEFORE USING TAG ON
The Tag On function allows you to conveniently use LG Smart Diagnosis™, set the cook mode and communicate
with the appliance using a smart phone. To use the Tag On function:
1. Download the SmartThinQ application to a smart phone.
2. Turn on the NFC (Near Field Communication) function in the smart phone.- The Tag On function can only be
used with smart phones equipped with the NFC function and based on the Android operating system (OS).
TURNING ON THE SMART PHONE’S NFC FUNCTION
1. Enter the Settings menu of the
smart phone and select Share
& Connect under WIRELESS &
NETWORKS.
2. Set NFC and Direct/Android
Beam to ON and select NFC.
3. Check
Use Read and
Write/P2P receive.
NOTE
Depending on the smart phone manufacturer and Android OS version, the NFC activation process may differ.
Refer to the manual of the smart phone for details.
USING THE TAG ON FUNCTION
THE TAG ON ICON
Look for the Tag On icon next to the display on the
control panel. Position the smart phone next to the
icon when using the Tag On function with the LG Smart
Diagnosis™, cook mode setting of the SmartThinQ
application.

SMART FEATURES
on the appliance. (The position of the antenna cannot
be seen, so the SmartThinQ app will attempt to find it
and display a target range for the antenna on the smart
phone's screen.)
If the app is not able to show a target range, position
the center back of the smart phone over the Tag On
icon on the appliance. If the connection is not made
immediately, move the smart phone very slightly in a
widening circular motion until the application verifies the
connection.
Because of the characteristics of NFC, if the
transmission distance is too far, or if there is a metal
sticker or a thick case on the phone, transmission will
not be good.
THE NFC ANTENNA POSITION
When using the Tag On function, position the smart

MAINTENANCE
CARING FOR YOUR
MICROWAVE OVEN
To clean the glass 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.
To make sure the microwave oven looks good and
works well for a long time, maintain it properly. For
proper care, 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. Keep the
areas clean where the door
and oven frame touch when
closed.
Wipe well with a clean cloth.
Over time, stains can occur on the surfaces as the
result of food particles spattering during cooking.
This is normal.

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
sprayed with glass cleaner.
Apply the 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.

MAINTENANCE
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 the
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.
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.
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.
BROWN PAPER:
Avoid using brown paper bags.
They absorb too much heat and could burn.
Note:
Do not use recycled paper products in the
microwave oven. They sometimes contain
impurities that cause arcing and sparking.
FLAWED OR CHIPPED UTENSILS:
Any utensil that is cracked, flawed, or chipped may break in the
oven.
NEVER use paper products in the
convection oven.
METAL TWIST TIES:
Remove metal twist ties from plastic or paper bags.
They become hot and could cause a fire.

TROUBLESHOOTING
BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE
Check the following list to be sure a service call is
really necessary. A quick reference of this manual as
well as reviewing additional information on items to
check may prevent an unneeded service call.
If nothing on the oven operates:
• check for a blown circuit fuse or a tripped main circuit
breaker.
• check if oven is properly connected to electric circuit
in house.
• check that controls are set properly.
If the oven interior light does not work
• the light bulb is loose or defective.
If oven will not cook:
• check that control panel was programmed correctly.
• check that door is firmly closed.
• check that Start was pressed.
• c heck that timer wasn’t started instead of a cook function.
If oven takes longer than normal to cook or cooks
too rapidly:
• be sure the Power Level is programmed properly.
If the time of day clock does not always keep
correct time:
• check that the power cord is fully inserted into the
outlet receptacle.
• be sure the oven is the only appliance on the
electrical circuit.
Q. C
an I use a rack in my microwave oven to reheat
or cook on two levels at once?
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. C
an 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 ¾ inch deep and filled with food to absorb
microwave energy). Never allow metal to touch walls
or door.
Q. S
ometimes 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. W
hy 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.
If food cooks unevenly:
• be sure food is evenly shaped.
• be sure food is completely defrosted before cooking.
• check placement of aluminum foil strips used to
prevent overcooking.
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 purposes.
If food is undercooked:
• 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 arcing (sparks) occur:
• be sure microwavable dishes were used.
• be sure wire twist ties weren’t used.
• be sure oven wasn’t operated when empty.
• make sure metal rack (if used) is properly installed on
4 supports.
If the display shows a time counting down but the
oven is not cooking:
• check that door is firmly closed.
• check that timer wasn’t started instead of a cooking
function.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. C
an 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 key.
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.
Q. W
hy does steam come out of the air exhaust
vent?
A. Steam is normally produced during cooking. The
microwave oven has been designed to vent steam
out of the top vent.
