10824 manual UK.book Seite 5 Freitag, 11. November 2005 3:38 15
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Setting up and electrical connection
• Connect the microwave only with an appropriate 230V~50Hz safety plug
which has at least a 16 Amp fuse. To prevent tripping, please avoid using
an extension cable.
• Ensure that the power cable is undamaged and does not run underneath
the appliance or over any hot surfaces.
• The microwave should be set up on a level, stable surface, which is able
to carry the weight of the appliance as well as the food which is to be
prepared within it. Only set up the microwave in a safe, dry environment.
• Please pay attention to the minimum safe
distances and under no circumstances cover the
ventilation slots. Do not place any objects on the
microwave as these may become hot during use.
To ensure adequate ventilation a minimum safe
clearance distance of 30cm and 10cm on both
sides must be observed. The openings in the
appliance should not be covered or blocked.

10824 manual UK.book Seite 6 Freitag, 11. November 2005 3:38 15
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Initial operation and use
• Use only the supplied accessories or those approved by us (see
“Microwave-suitable materials and objects” on page 10.).
• Never operate the appliance while empty.
• Use only microwave-suitable dishes. Look for markings such as
"Microwave-suitable" or "For the microwave".
• Never use dishes with metal trimmings, metal utensils or the grill stand in
microwave mode as this could damage the appliance.
• Do not remove any of the microwave's panels or the inner coating of the
viewing window as this could lead to microwave radiation leakage.
• Never leave the appliance unattended during operation.
• The appliance should be cleaned regularly and food particles should be
removed.
• Poor appliance hygiene can lead to damage of the surfaces, which in turn
can reduce the lifespan of the appliance and even lead to dangerous
situations.
Attention!
When heating liquids in the microwave so-called "delayed boiling"
can occur, i.e. the liquid has reached boiling temperature without
beginning to bubble as boiling liquids normally do. Agitation, for
instance when removing the liquid from the appliance, can lead to
a sudden boiling up of the liquid.
Warning!
There is a danger of scalding!
Therefore: always place a glass or ceramic rod in liquids that are
to be heated up. This will hinder sudden, belated boiling of the
liquid.
• Never heat up foods in closed containers. With bottles, such as baby
bottles, always remove the lid; otherwise there is a danger of explosion.
6
10824 manual UK.book Seite 7 Freitag, 11. November 2005 3:38 15
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
• With foods that have a firm skin, e.g. sausages or tomatoes, make small
slits in the skin so that they do not burst during cooking.
• Do not try to warm up eggs in their shells or pre-boiled eggs unless in
specially designed microwave-suitable containers.
Warning!
Eggs which are already boiled can explode, even after being
removed from the oven.
• After heating, stir the food if possible to ensure even temperatures,
otherwise let the food stand for a short time.
• Check the temperature before eating food cooked in the microwave.
Special care must be taken with baby food. Always stir or shake the baby
food before checking the temperature to avoid burns.
Faults
• Avoid damaging the appliance or the power cable.
• Always check the cable and the appliance before each use.
• If you detect any damage do not use the appliance under any
circumstances. Immediately remove the mains plug from the socket.
• Ensure that defective devices are repaired, or damaged mains cables
replaced, by a specialist workshop or contact your Medion Service Centre
to reduce risks.
Warning!
It is dangerous for untrained persons to carry out repair or
maintenance work which requires the removal of the plates which
are in place to prevent the escape of microwave radiation.
• If you see smoke, keep the door closed to prevent fire from breaking out,
or to smother flames which have already broken out, and immediately turn
off the appliance using the C a n c el / S t o p button.
• Then pull the plug out of the mains socket straight away.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Warning!
If the housing, door, door seal or the door catch is damaged then
do not use the appliance under any circumstances. Have the
appliance repaired immediately by a specialist workshop or
contact your Medion Service Centre.
• Ensure that the microwave is not placed near any heat source or in an area
where it could come into contact with water.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
About microwaves
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves which have a
warming effect on the food within the oven. Microwaves heat all non-metallic
objects. Therefore, do not place any metallic objects in the microwave oven.
This heating effect works better the higher the water content of the foodstuff.
To ensure optimal distribution of heat let food stand for a minute or two after
cooking.
The effect of microwaves on foodstuffs
• Microwaves penetrate foodstuffs to a depth of up to 3cm.
• They heat up water, fat and sugar molecules (foodstuffs with a higher water
content are heated more intensively).
• This heat then works its way – slowly – throughout the food and has a
defrosting, heating and cooking effect on the food.
• The cooking chamber and the air within are not heated (the food container
is heated mainly by the hot food).
• Each foodstuff requires a certain amount of energy to cook or defrost. As
a rule of thumb we can say high energy = short time or low energy = long
time.
The Microwave Oven
• A microwave generator, the so-called magnetron, generates the
microwaves and directs them into the cooking space.
• The inner walls reflect the microwaves inwards so that they cannot escape
from the interior.
• The rotary plate helps ensure even distribution of the microwaves onto the
food.
• The microwave power can be set in several steps; the cooking/defrosting
time is continuously variable.
9
10824 manual UK.book Seite 10 Freitag, 11. November 2005 3:38 15
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
• After the cooking time has elapsed, or when the door is opened, the
magnetron turns off immediately.
Cooking and heating up in the microwave
• To arrange food so that it cooks properly place the food with the largest
pieces towards the outer edge.
• Note the exact cooking or heating times.
• Choose the shortest available cooking or heating time and extend it if
necessary. Overcooked food can start to smoke or even catch fire.
• Cover food during cooking or heating. Covering the food helps avoid
splashes; furthermore the food is more evenly cooked.
• Foods such as chicken pieces or hamburgers should be turned once during
cooking to speed up cooking. Larger pieces such as joints or roasting
chickens must be turn at least once.
• It is also important to reposition food, e.g. with meatballs. After half of the
cooking time is over the food should be repositioned from top to bottom and
from the middle to the outside.
Microwave-suitable materials and objects
You can buy special dishes and accessories for your microwave. Look for
markings such as "Microwave-suitable" or "For the microwave". You can also
use your existing dishes – if the material is suitable.
Suitable products include:
• Porcelain, glass ceramic and heat-proof glass
• Plastics which are heat-proof and microwave-suitable (note: plastics may
become discoloured by foods or become warped by the heat)
• Baking paper and foil
10
10824 manual UK.book Seite 11 Freitag, 11. November 2005 3:38 15
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Note:
Do not use porcelain, ceramic or plastic containers in grill or grill
combi mode. Cling film should also not be used. Due to the very high
temperatures the materials could break, warp or even melt.
Suitable in most cases are:
• Stoneware and ceramics. Use clay containers only for defrosting and for
short cooking times because the air and water content of the material could
cause the clay to crack or break.
• Dishes with gold or silver décor should only be used when the manufacture
has labelled it "microwave-suitable".
• Aluminium foil, if used in small pieces to protect delicate parts, in order to
prevent overcooking in the corners in which the microwave energy is
mainly concentrated. However, do not use too much aluminium foil and
ensure that it does not come within 2.5cm of the inner walls.
• Aluminium containers (e. g. those for ready-to-serve meals) are suitable,
but they must be at least 3cm high to be used in the microwave.
Unsuitable products include:
• Metal, i.e. metal pots, pans and lids.
Attention!
Metal in the cooking space can lead to sparks! These can damage
the appliance or the viewing window! Therefore use the supplied
grill only in grill or combi mode.
• Dishes with metal parts (handles, decoration or bottoms) or with gold or
silver décor can also lead to sparks.
• Crystal or lead crystal can shatter, coloured glass may become
discoloured.
• Any materials which are not heat-proof can lose shape or even burn.

10824 manual UK.book Seite 12 Freitag, 11. November 2005 3:38 15
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Note:
To test whether a dish is suitable for use in the microwave, put some
water in the container and place it in the microwave. Press the button
M i c ro / M ic r o + G r i ll and choose the highest power setting (100) using
the dial. Start the microwave with the S t a r t /O K button for one minute.
If you ascertain that the container is hotter than the food, then it is not
suitable for the microwave. Microwave-suitable dishes are only
warmed by the heat of the food.
Attention!
As soon as you notice sparks, flashes or even fire, then turn off the
microwave immediately using the C a n ce l / S t o p button!
Size and shape of microwave-suitable containers
Flat, broad containers are better than narrow, tall ones. "Flat" foods can be
cooked more evenly.
Round or oval containers are better than angular ones. There is a danger of
local overheating in the corners.

CLEANING, DISPOSAL
Cleaning
The microwave should be cleaned regularly and food particles should be
removed. Poor appliance hygiene can lead to damage to the surfaces, which
in turn can reduce the lifespan of the appliance and even lead to dangerous
situations.
• Before cleaning, always remove the mains plug from the socket!
• Never let the appliance itself come into contact with liquid and never dip the
appliance into water.
Warning!
There is a risk of electric shock.
• Allow the appliance to cool down completely.
• Wash the grill stand and the dish in a mild detergent solution or in the
dishwasher.
• Wipe out in the interior if necessary with a damp cloth.
• Parts of the door, the viewing window, and especially the seal and the
closing mechanism should be cleaned carefully with a mild detergent
solution. Pay great care to avoid damaging these parts.
• If necessary you can also wipe the housing with a damp cloth.
• Allow the microwave to dry off with the door open. Always wait until the
microwave is completely dry. Only then should you reconnect the
appliance to the power.
Disposal
At the end of its life, the microwave should not be disposed of with
the household rubbish. Seek the advice of your local authority on
correct, environmentally-friendly disposal.
