Getting to Know Your Microwave Oven
This section discusses the concepts behind microwave cooking. It also shows the basics that you need to
know in order to operate your microwave oven. Please read this information before using your oven.
HOW YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS
Microwave ovens are safe. Microwave energy is not hot. It
causes food to make its own heat, and it is this heat that
cooks the food.
Microwaves are like TV waves, radio waves, or light waves.
You cannot see them, but you can see the results of what
they do.
Magnetron
A magnetron in the microwave oven produces microwaves.
The microwaves move into the oven where they contact
food as it turns on the turntable.
The glass turntable of your microwave oven lets microwaves
pass through7KHPLFURZDYHVWKHQERXQFHRIIDPHWDO
pRRr, back through the glass turntable, and are absorbed
by the food.
Oven cavity
Metal floor Glass turntable
Microwaves pass through most glass, paper, and plastics
without heating them, so food absorbs the energy0LFURZDYHVERXQFHRIIPHWDOFRQWDLQHUVVRIRRGGRHV
not absorb the energy.
RADIO INTERFERENCE
Using your microwave oven may cause interference to your radio, TV, or similar equipment. When there is
interference, you can reduce it or remove it by:
‡ Cleaning the door and sealing surfaces of the oven.
‡ Adjusting the receiving antenna of the radio or television.
‡ Moving the receiver away from the microwave oven.

needed, touch Add 30 Sec while the oven is operating, or after the cooking cycle is over (see the "Add
30 Sec" section).
v6WLr, turn over, or rearrange the food being cooked about halfway through the cooking time for all recipes.
This will help ensure that the food is evenly cooked.
v If you do not have a cover for a dish, use wax paper, or microwave-approved paper towels or plastic
wrap. Remember to turn back a corner of the plastic wrap to vent steam during cooking.
v The metal shelf is used for cooking certain items and should be removed from the microwave oven when not
needed. Do not store metal shelf in the microwave oven.
COOKWARE GUIDE
Microwave Cooking
Most heat-resistant, non-metallic cookware is safe for use in y our microwave oven. However, to test cookware before
using, follow these steps":
1. Place the empty cookware in the microwave oven.
2. Measure 1 cup (250ml) as done in 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
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 due to the cleanability
of glass.
Combination Cooking
Glass or glass-ceramic baking containers are recommended. Be sure not to use items with metal trim as it may cause
arcing (sparking) with oven wall or oven shelf, damaging the cookware, the shelf or the oven.
Heat-resisant plastic microwave cookware (safe to 450 0F) may be used, but is not recommended for foods that require
crusting or all-around browning, because plastic is a poor conductor of heat.

OPERATING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
‡ Never lean on or allow a child to swing on the door when it is open.
‡ Use hot pads to handle food containers. Microwave energy does not heat containers, but the heat from the food
can make the container hot.
‡ Do not use newspaper or other printed paper in the oven.
‡ Do not dr\pRZHUs, fruit, herbs, wood, paper, gourds, or clothes in the oven.
‡ Do not start a microwave oven when it is empty. This may shorten the life-span of the oven. To practice
programming, put a container of water in the oven before starting.
‡ Do not tr\WRPHOWSDUDIILQZD[LQWKHRYHn. PDUDIILQZD[ZLOOQRWPHOWLQDPLFURZDYHRYHQEHFDXVHLW
allows microwaves to pass through it.
‡ Do not operate the microwave oven unless the glass turntable is securely in place and can rotate freely.
The turntable can rotate in either direction. Make sure the turntable is correct-side up in the oven.
Handle your turntable with care when removing it from the oven to avoid breaking it.
‡ When using a browning dish, the browning dish bottom must be at least 3/16 inch above the turntable.
Follow the directions supplied with the browning dish.
‡ Never cook or reheat a whole egg inside the shell. Steam buildup in whole eggs may cause them to
burst, and possibly damage the oven. Slice hard-boiled eggs before heating. In rare cases, poached eggs
have been known to explode. Cover poached eggs and allow a standing time of one minute before
cutting into them.
‡ For best results, stir any liquid several times during heating or reheating. Liquids heated in certain
containers (especially containers shaped like cylinders) may overheat. The liquid may splash during or after
KHDWLQJRUZKHQDGGLQJLQJUHGLHQWVFRIIHHJUDQXOHs, tea bags, etc.). This can harm you or damage the
microwave oven.
‡ Microwaves may not reach the center of a roast. The heat spreads from the outer to the center cooked
areas, just as in regular oven cooking. This is one of the reasons for letting some foods (for example, roasts or
baked potatoes) stand for a while after cooking, or for stirring some foods during the cooking time.
‡ Do not deep fry in the oven. 0LFURZDYDEOHXWHQVLOVDUHQRWVXLWDEOHDQGLWLVGLèFXOWWRPDLQWDLQDSSURSULDWH

‡ Do not overcook potatoes. At the end of the recommended cooking time SRWDWRHVVKRXOGEHVOLJKWO\oUP
because they will continue cooking during standing time. After microwaving, let potatoes stand for 5

Microwave Cooking Tips
Amount of Food
Releasing Pressure in Foods
v,I\RXLQFUHDVHRUGHFUHDVH 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 readiness and, if
necessary, add more time in small increments.
v6HYHUDOIRRGV (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.
Starting Temperature of Food
Using Standing Time
v7KHORZHUWKHWHPSHUDWXUH of the food being
put into the microwave oven, the longer it
takes to cook. Food at room temperature will
reheat quicker than food at refrigerator
temperature.
Composition of Food
v F o o d with a lot of fat and sugar will heat
faster than food containing a lot of water.
Fat and sugar will also reach a higher
temperature than water in the cooking process.
v7KHPRUHGHQVHWKHIRRG 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

larger pieces. Also, same shaped pieces cook
PRUHHYHQO\WKDQGLçHUHQWO\VKDSHGSLHFHs.
v:LWKIRRGVWKDWKDYHGLçHUHQWWKLFNQHVVHVthe
thinner parts will 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

to the center of the dish and avoids overcooking
at the outer edges of the food.
v$OZD\VDOORZIRRGWRVWDQG 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, you can program a "0" power
second stage of the cooking cycle. See Two-Stage Cooking.
v 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 to remove the food
from the oven and take it to the serving table. However,
with a larger, denser food item, 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:
v,I\RXDUHFRRNLQJVHYHUDOLWHPVRIWKHVDPHIRRG
such as baked potatoes, place them in a ring pattern for
uniform cooking.
v 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.
v Layer thin slices of meat on top of each other.
v :KHQ\RXFRRNRUUHKHDWZKROHILVK score the skin - this
prevents cracking.
v'RQRW let food or a container touch the top or sides of
the oven. This will prevent possible arcing. Arcing is a
spark that can cause damage to the oven interior.
Covering Food
v Cover food to reduce splattering, shorten cooking
times, and keep food moist.
You can use any covering that lets microwaves
pass through. See "Getting to Know Your Microwave
Oven" for materials that microwaves will
pass through.

Using Aluminum Foil
NOTE: Metal containers should not be used in a microwave oven. There are, however, some exceptions. If you
have purchased food 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 top of the food. When using aluminum containers without package instructions, follow these guidelines:

SENSOR OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Sensor Cook allows you to cook most of your favorite
foods without selecting cooking times and power levels.
The display will indicate Sensing during the initial sensing
period.
The oven automatically determines required cooking time
for each food item. When the internal sensor detects a
certain amount of humidity coming from the food,it will tell
the oven how much longer to heat. The display will show the
remaining heating time. For best results for cooking by
Sensor, follow these recommendations.
1 . Food cooked with the sensor system should be at normal
storage temperature.
2 . Always use microwavable containers.
3. Match the amount to the size of the container.
Fill containers at least half full for best results.
4. Be sure the outside of the cooking container and the
inside of the microwave oven are dry before placing
food in the oven. Beads of moisture turning into steam
can mislead the sensor.
5. Foods should always be covered with microwavable
plastic wrap, waxed paper, or a lid. Never use tightsealing plastic covers. They can prevent steam from
escaping and cause food to overcook.
6. Do not open the door or touch the STOP key during the
sensing time. When sensing time is over, the oven beeps
and the remaining cooking time will appear in the
display window. At this time you can open the door to stir,
turn,or rearrange the food.

TIPS FOR CONVECTION COOKING
CONVECTION KEEP WARM (Control panel Feature 2)
This section gives you cooking instructions and procedures for
operating each convection function. Please read these
instructions carefully.
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
pDYRUE\WKHFRQVWDQWPRWLRQRIKRWDLURYHUWKHIRRGVXUIDFHV
Your oven uses convection cooking whenever you use the
Convection Button. 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 turntable or metal rack with aluminum foil.
,WLQWHUIHUHVZLWKWKHpRZRIDLUWKDWFRRNVWKHIRRG
3. Round pizza pans are excellent cooking utensils
for many convection-only items. Choose pans that do not
have extended handles.
4.Use convection cooking for items like souffles, breads, cookies,
DQJHOIRRGFDNHVSL]]DDQGIRUVRPHPHDWDQGoVK
5. You do not need to use any special techniques to adapt your
favorite oven recipes to convection cooking; however, you need
to lower oven temperature by 25°F from recommended
temperature mentioned in package instructions when cooking
packaged food in convection mode.
6. When baking cakes,cookies, breads,rolls, or other baked
foods,most recipes call for preheating. Preheat the empty
oven just as you do a regular oven. You can start heavier dense
foods such as meats,casseroles, and poultry without preheating.
7. All heat-proof cookware or metal utensils can be used in
convection cooking.
8. Use metal utensils only for convection cooking.
Never use for microwave or combination cooking since arcing
and damage to the oven may occur.
9. After preheating, if you do not open the door, the oven will
automatically hold at the preheated temperature for 30
minutes.

TIPS FOR COMBINATION COOKING
MICRO+CONV COMBICOOK (Control panel Feature 4)
This section gives you instructions to operate each combination
cooking function. Please read these instructions carefully.
Sometimes combination microwave-convection cooking is
suggested to get the best cooking results since it shortens the
cooking time for foods that normally need a long time to cook.
This cooking process also leaves meats juicy on the inside and
crispy on the outside. In combination cooking, the convection
heat and microwave energy alternate automatically.
Example: To bake 15 minutes at 325 degress default.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR COMBINATION COOKING
1. Meats may be roasted directly on the metal rack or in a
shallow roasting pan placed on the rack. When using the
metal rack, please check your 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.
'XULQJFRPELQDWLRQEDNLQJVRPHEDNLQJFRRNZDUHPD\
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.
-If arcing occurs,immediately stop the cooking cycle and
place a microwavable safe dish between the pan and the
metal rack.
-We recommend you use the metal rack supplied with your
oven. It has rubber feet that helps prevent arcing.
-If arcing occurs with other baking cookware, do not use
them for combination cooking.

Caring for Your Microwave Oven
In order to ensure that your microwave oven looks good and works well for a long time, you
should maintain it properly. For proper care, please 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.
Be sure to keep the areas
clean where the door and
oven frame touch when
closed. Wipe well with
clean cloth.
For exterior surfaces and control panel: Use a
soft cloth with spray glass
cleaner. Apply the spray 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.
Over time, surfaces may stain as a result of food
particles splattering during cooking. This is normal.
For stubborn soil: Boil a cup of water in the oven

Can I use either metal or aluminum pans in

You can use aluminum foil for shielding (use small, flat pieces),
small skewers, and shallow foil trays (if tray is no taller

walls or door.
Is it normal for the turntable to turn in
either direction?

What are the humming noises that I hear when
my microwave oven is operating?
You may hear the sound of the transformer when
the magnetron tube cycles on.
Why does the dish become hot when I microwave
food in it? I thought that this should
not happen.
As the food becomes hot it will conduct the
heat to the dish. Be prepared to use hot pads to
remove food after cooking.
What does "standing time" mean?
"Standing time" means that after the timed cooking period
ends, food should be allowed to stand either inside or

oven standing time will allow the oven to be available for
other use. For inside oven standing time, you can program
a "0" power second stage of the cooking cycle. See TwoStage Cooking.
Why does steam come out of the air
exhaust vent?
Steam is normally produced during cooking. The
microwave oven has been designed to vent this steam.
Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven?
Yes. Use the microwave oven popcorn selection. Do not use
regular paper bags. Do not re-pop unpopped kernels.
Do not pop popcorn in glass cookware. Remove the metal
shelf from microwave oven when cooking popcorn.
