IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Advantium Oven
WARNING!
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
■ Do not operate the oven without
the oven rack (turntable) in place.
The oven rack (turntable) must be
unrestricted so it can turn.
■ During and after use, do not touch,
or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact any interior area
of the oven; allow sufficient time
for cooling first.
ARCING
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
■ Potentially hot surfaces include the
oven door, floor, walls and oven rack
(turntable).
Arcing can occur during both speedcooking and microwave cooking. If you see arcing, press the
CLEAR/OFF pad and correct the problem.
Arcing is the microwave term for sparks
in the oven. Arcing is caused by:
■ Metal, such as twist-ties, poultry pins,
or gold-rimmed dishes, in the oven.
■ Metal or foil touching the side of
the oven.
■ Recycled paper towels containing small
metal pieces being used in the oven.
■ Foil not molded to food (upturned
edges act like antennas).
■ Use foil only as recommended in
this manual.
■ Metal cookware used during either
speedcook or microwave cooking
(except for the pans provided with
the oven).
4
■ Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—
meat to at least an INTERNAL
temperature of 160°F, and poultry to
at least an INTERNAL temperature of
180°F. Cooking to these temperatures
usually protects against foodborne
illness.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Advantium Oven
WARNING!
■ When microwaving, place all foods and
FOODS
containers on the white ceramic tray.
■ Do not pop popcorn in your oven
unless in a special microwave popcorn
accessory or unless you use popcorn
labeled for use in microwave ovens.
■ Do not boil eggs in this oven. Pressure
will build up inside egg yolk and will
cause it to burst, possibly resulting
in injury.
■ Do not operate the oven without food
inside. This may cause damage to the
oven. It increases the heat around the
magnetron and can shorten the life
of the oven.
■ Foods with unbroken outer “skin”
such as potatoes, hot dogs, sausages,
tomatoes, apples, chicken livers and
other giblets, and egg yolks should
be pierced to allow steam to escape
during cooking.
■ SUPERHEATED WATER
Liquids, such as water, coffee or tea, are able to
be overheated beyond the boiling point without
appearing to be boiling. Visible bubbling or
boiling when the container is removed from the
microwave oven is not always present. THIS
COULD RESULT IN VERY HOT LIQUIDS
SUDDENLY BOILING OVER WHEN THE
CONTAINER IS DISTURBED OR A SPOON
OR OTHER UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO
THE LIQUID.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
— Do not overheat the liquid.
— Stir the liquid both before and halfway
through heating it.
— Do not use straight-sided containers
with narrow necks.
— After heating, allow the container to
stand in the microwave oven for a short
time before removing the container.
— Use extreme care when inserting a
spoon or other utensil into the
container.
Speedcook
oven-safe
cookware
■ The oven and door will get very hot
when speedcooking.
■ Place food directly on the trays when
cooking.
■ Cookware will become hot. Oven mitts
will be needed to handle the cookware.
The oven rack
(turntable) must always
be in place when using
the oven.
■ Do not cover the oven rack (turntable),
trays or any part of the oven with metal
foil. This will cause arcing in the oven.
■ Any oven-safe dish can be used in
your oven. Recipes in the Advantium
Cookbook were tested in Pyrex® and
Anchor Hocking® glass cookware and
Corningware® ceramic casseroles.
Cooktimes and results may vary when
using other types of oven-safe dishes.
Place them directly on the oven rack
(turntable).
■ Do not use coverings, containers
or cooking/roasting bags made
of foil, plastic, wax or paper when
speedcooking.
■ Use the black metal flat tray in the same
way you would use a shallow baking pan
or baking tray.
Put food directly on the
black metal flat tray
to speedcook.
Put food directly on
the black grill tray
to speedcook foods you
would normally cook
on the grill.
■ Use the black grill tray for cooking
steaks, fish and poultry.
■ Do not use the oven to dry newspapers.
■ Use of the white ceramic tray when
speedcooking will result in inferior
cooking performance.

and a glass
measuring cup filled with 1 cup of
water—set the measuring cup either
in or next to the dish. Microwave 30–45
seconds at high. If the dish heats, it
should not be used for microwaving.
If the dish remains cool and only the
water in the cup heats, then the dish
is microwave-safe.
■ Cookware may become hot because of
heat transferred from the heated food.
Oven mitts may be needed to handle
the cookware.
■ Do not use recycled paper products.
Recycled paper towels, napkins and
waxed paper can contain metal flecks
which may cause arcing or ignite. Paper
products containing nylon or nylon
filaments should be avoided, as they
may also ignite.
■ Use foil only as directed in this manual.
When using foil in the oven, keep the
foil at least 1″ away from the sides of
the oven.
■ Do not use the oven to dry newspapers.
■ If you use a meat thermometer while
cooking, make sure it is safe for use
in microwave ovens.

■ Some styrofoam trays (like those that
meat is packaged on) have a thin strip of
metal embedded in the bottom. When
microwaved, the metal can burn the
floor of the oven or ignite a paper towel.
order to retain moisture and prevent
spattering. Be sure to vent plastic wrap
so steam can escape.
■ Not all plastic wrap is suitable for use in
microwave ovens. Check the package for
proper use.
■ “Boilable” cooking pouches and tightly
closed plastic bags should be slit, pierced
or vented as directed by package. If they
are not, plastic could burst during or
immediately after cooking, possibly
resulting in injury. Also, plastic storage
containers should be at least partially
uncovered because they form a tight
seal. When cooking with containers
tightly covered with plastic wrap, remove
covering carefully and direct steam away
from hands and face.
■ Plastic cookware—Plastic cookware
designed for microwave cooking is very
useful, but should be used carefully.
Even microwave-safe plastic may not be
as tolerant of overcooking conditions
as are glass or ceramic materials and
may soften or char if subjected to short
periods of overcooking. In longer
exposures to overcooking, the food
and cookware could ignite.
Follow these guidelines:
1. Use microwave-safe plastics only and
use them in strict compliance with
the cookware manufacturer’s
recommendations.
2. Do not microwave empty containers.
3. Do not permit children to use plastic
cookware without complete supervision.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Advantium Oven
WARNING!
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
■ Don’t defrost frozen beverages in
narrow-necked bottles (especially
carbonated beverages). Even if the
container is open, pressure can build
up. This can cause the container to
burst, possibly resulting in injury.
■ Foods cooked in liquids (such as pasta)
may tend to boil more rapidly than
foods containing less moisture. Should
this occur, refer to the Care and Cleaning
of the oven section for instructions on
how to clean the inside of the oven.
■ Hot foods and steam can cause burns.
Be careful when opening any containers
of hot food, including popcorn bags,
cooking pouches and boxes. To prevent
possible injury, direct steam away from
hands and face.
Notice—
Pacemakers
■ Do not overcook potatoes. They could
dehydrate and catch fire, causing
damage to your oven.
■ Avoid heating baby food in glass jars,
even with the lid off. Make sure all
infant food is thoroughly cooked.
Stir food to distribute the heat evenly.
Be careful to prevent scalding when
warming formula. The container may
feel cooler than the formula really is.
Always test the formula before feeding
the baby.
■ Do not attempt to deep fry in the oven.
■ Most pacemakers are shielded from
interference from electronic products,
including microwaves. However, patients
with pacemakers may wish to consult their
physicians if they have concerns.

What is Advantium?
Advantium Oven
Getting
to know
Advantium
The new Advantium oven uses breakthrough
Speedcook technology to harness the power
of light. The Advantium oven cooks the
outside of foods much like conventional
radiant heat, while also penetrating the
surface so the inside cooks simultaneously.
While halogen light is the primary source
of power, a “microwave boost” is added with
certain foods. Foods cook evenly and fast,
retaining their natural moisture.
Turntable
■ The oven rack (turntable) rotates to ensure even cooking.
Controls
■ The oven control contains preset recipes.
■ Turn and press dial makes menu selection easy.
Halogen Lamps
■ Two 1500 watt halogen bulbs cook food from above.
■ One 1500 watt halogen bulb cooks food from below.
Microwave
■ A microwave “boost” is automatically added with certain foods.
■ The oven can also be used as a 950 watt microwave oven.

power level
Advantium uses power from
high intensity halogen lights and
microwaves to cook food from
the top, bottom and interior
simultaneously to seal in moisture
and flavor.
When using the pre-set menu
foods, the power levels are already
selected for you. However, power
levels can be adjusted when
cooking both pre-set menu foods
and manual cooking.
Each power level gives you halogen
lamp power and microwave energy
for a certain percentage of the time.
U=07
Upper halogen lamp on
70% of the time.
L=07
Lower halogen lamp on
70% of the time.
M=05 Microwave on 50% of
the time.
NOTE: Be careful when adjusting
power levels so that you do not overor undercook your food.
1. Press the SPEEDCOOK button
and select your food (follow
instructions from To use a pre-set
speedcook menu).

cook quickly in the center
(example: casseroles). Select
a lower setting for thin foods
(example: cookies) and foods
containing high fat or sugar
content (example: pastry, cakes).
M = Select a higher setting to
shorten cooking time for dense
or heavy foods (example:
casseroles, whole chicken).

Advantium Oven
Defrosting
tips
Use AUTO DEFROST for meat, poultry and
fish. Use TIME DEFROST for most other
frozen foods.
■ Foods frozen in paper or plastic can
be time defrosted in the package,
but foods should be taken out of the
package when using DEFROST (AUTO).
Closed packages should be slit, pierced
or vented after food has partially
defrosted. Plastic storage containers
should be partially uncovered.
■ Family-size, prepackaged frozen
dinners can be defrosted and
microwaved. If the food is in a foil
container, transfer it to a microwavesafe dish.
■ Foods that spoil easily should not
be allowed to sit out for more than
one hour after defrosting. Room
temperature promotes the growth
of harmful bacteria.
■ For more even defrosting of larger
foods, such as roasts, use DEFROST
(AUTO). Be sure large meats are
completely defrosted before cooking.
■ When defrosted, food should be cool
but softened in all areas. If still slightly
icy, return to the microwave very briefly,
or let it stand a few minutes.

Microwave
sensor
cooking
The sensor feature detects the increasing
humidity released during cooking. The oven
automatically adjusts the cooking time to
various types and amounts of food.
Do not use the Sensor Features twice in
succession on the same food portion—it may
result in severely overcooked or burnt food. If
food is undercooked after the first countdown,
use TIME COOK for additional cooking time.
Covered
The proper containers and covers are essential
for best sensor cooking.
■ Always use microwave-safe containers
and cover them with lids or vented
plastic wrap. Never use tight sealing
plastic containers—they can prevent
steam from escaping and cause food
to overcook.
■ Be sure the outside of the cooking
containers and the inside of the oven
are dry before placing food in the oven.
Beads of moisture turning into steam
can mislead the sensor.
■ Beverages are best heated uncovered.
MICROWAVE SENSOR PROGRAMS:
■ Beverage
■ Popcorn—Prepackaged microwave
popcorn, 1.5 oz. to 3.5 oz.
■ Reheat—Single servings (4 to 6 oz.)

Care and Cleaning
Advantium Oven
How to clean
the outside
We recommend against using cleaners with
ammonia or alcohol, as they can damage the
appeareance of the microwave oven. If you
choose to use a common household cleaner,
first apply the cleaner directly to a clean cloth,
then wipe the soiled area.
Case
Clean the outside with a sudsy cloth. Rinse
and then dry. Wipe the window clean with
a damp cloth.
Glass Control Panel and Door
(on some models)
Wipe with a clean damp sponge. Dry
thoroughly. Do not use cleaning sprays,
large amounts of soap and water, abrasives
or sharp objects on the panel—they can
damage it.
Stainless Steel Surfaces (on some models)
Do not use a steel wool pad; it will scratch
the surface.
To clean the stainless steel surface,
use warm sudsy water or a stainless steel
cleaner or polish. Always wipe the surface
in the direction of the grain. Follow the
cleaner instructions for cleaning the
stainless steel surface.
To inquire about purchasing stainless steel
appliance cleaner or polish, or to find the
location of a dealer nearest you, please call
our toll-free number, 800.626.2002 or visit
ge.com.
34
Grill
Use warm soapy water and a dishcloth
to wipe off the grill.
Door Seal
It’s important to keep the area clean
where the door seals against the oven.
Use only mild, non-abrasive detergents
applied with a clean sponge or soft cloth.
Rinse well.
