Important information
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Never use the microwave when empty in microwave mode, i.e. without
items to be cooked inside.
Only use the accessories that are enclosed or described as suitable in these
instructions.
Never use dishes with metal trimmings, metal utensils or the grill stand in
microwave mode as this could damage the appliance.
After cooking with the grill the rotating table will become very hot!
Therefore always use oven gloves or protective cloth when removing food.
Use only microwave-suitable dishes. Look for markings such as "Microwavesuitable" or "For the microwave".
When warming up meals in flammable plastic or paper containers it is
necessary to monitor the microwave constantly due to the risk of fire.
Do not remove any of the microwave's internal panels or the inner coating
of the viewing window as this could lead to microwave radiation leakage.
Never leave the appliance unattended during operation.
Caution! Delayed boiling!
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. Therefore take care when moving the
liquid container.
There is a risk of scalding!
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 food in closed containers as these could easily explode.
Therefore always remove the seal on bottles and closable containers such as
baby’s bottles.
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 heat up eggs in their shells or pre-boiled eggs unless in
specially designed microwave-suitable containers.

Caution!
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 and bottles. Always stir or shake
the baby food before checking the temperature to avoid burns.
The ventilation will still be switched on for some time under some
circumstances after the end of the cooking process in the grilling operation
or in some automatic programmes. The device will cool more quickly
through this. The ventilation will switch off automatically after the device
has been cooled down sufficiently.
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 appliances or damaged mains cables are repaired
immediately by a specialist workshop or contact your Medion Service
Centre to reduce risks.
Caution!
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 button.
Then pull the plug out of the mains socket straight away.
Caution!
If the housing, door, covers or the door catch are 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
to reduce risks.

About microwaves
4
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 when operating the microwave
mode. 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 power - short time respectively low power 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 microwave output and the cooking time can be set in several steps.
After the cooking time has elapsed, or when the door is opened, the
magnetron turns off immediately.

Cooking and heating up in the microwave 6
General notes
•
•
•
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.
Caution!
Overcooked food can start to smoke or even catch fire.
•
•
•
Cover food during cooking or heating with a cover that is suitable for the
microwave. 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
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 materials
•
•
•
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
Caution!
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.

Materials that are partially suitable
•
•
•
•
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".
Never use aluminium foil in large quantities. It can however be used in small
pieces to cover sensitive parts. You can also cover the corners of containers
to prevent overcooking as the microwave energy is primarily concentrated
on the corners. Maintain a distance of 2.5 cm between the foil and the
internal wall.
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 materials
•
Metal, i.e. metal pots, pans and lids.
Caution!
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
mode.
•
•
•
Dishes with metal parts (handles, decoration or bottoms) or with gold or
silver décor can also lead to sparks during microwave operation.
Crystal or lead crystal can shatter, coloured glass may become discoloured.
Any materials which are not heat-proof can lose shape or even burn.
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 twice the button . The
device now operates in microwave mode for 1 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.
Caution!
As soon as you notice sparks, flashes or even fire, then turn off the microwave
immediately using the button!

Cleaning and care
11
Poor appliance hygiene can lead to damage to the surfaces, which in turn can
reduce the lifespan of the appliance and even result in dangerous situations.
Therefore clean the microwave regularly and remove all remaining food.
• Switch the microwave off and pull the plug from the socket before cleaning.
• Keep the inside of the appliance clean. Wipe away splashes or spilled liquids
that attach to the walls with a damp cloth. A mild cleaning solution can be
used for serious dirt. Do not use sprays or other caustic detergents as these
could attack, scratch or dull the door surface.
• The external areas should be cleaned with a damp cloth. In order to prevent
damage to the microwave oven’s internal operating parts, avoid allowing
water to penetrate into the ventilation openings.
• 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 attention to avoid damage to these parts.
• The operating field may not become wet. Clean with a soft, damp cloth.
When cleaning the operating field leave the door open to prevent the oven
being switched on by accident.
• If steam collects inside or on the external areas, wipe it away with a soft
cloth.
• Steam may occur if the microwave is used with high humidity; this is
normal.
• The rotating plate must be removed occasionally for cleaning. Wash the
plate in warm water with a mild soap solution or in the dishwasher.
• Dry the rotating plate thoroughly with a soft cloth after this. Pay attention
that the rotating plate is replaced correctly if you have removed it from the
drive hub to clean it.
• The star wheel and the floor of the microwave should be cleaned regularly
to avoid the devlopment of loud noises.
• Simply wipe the floor of the microwave with a mild cleaning substance. The
star wheel can be washed in mild soapy water or in the dishwasher.
• Odours remaining in the oven can be removed by placing a glass of water
with the juice and rind of a lemon on a deep container that is suitable for
microwave use and heating for 5 minutes. Wipe out thoroughly and dry
with a soft cloth.
• If you have to replace the light in the oven, please contact a qualified
specialist workshop or Medion Service.
