WARNING
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS : READ CAREFULLY AND KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
a. Do not overcook food.
b. Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before placing bag in the oven.
c. Do not heat oil or fat for deep frying. The temperature of the oil cannot be controlled.
d. Look at the oven from time to time when food is heated in disposable containers made of plastic,
paper or other combustible materials for signs of smoke or burning.
e. If materials inside the oven should ignite, or smoke is observed, keep oven door closed, turn oven
off, and disconnect the power plug, or shut off power at the fuse or circuit breaker panel.
To reduce the risk of an explosion or delayed eruptive boiling when handling the container.
Your microwave oven is capable of heating food and beverages very quickly therefore, it is very important
that you select the appropriate cooking time and power level for the type and quantity of food to be
heated. If you are unsure of the cooking time and power level required, begin with low cooking times and
power levels until the food is sufficiently heated evenly throughout.
Additionally:
a. Do not place sealed containers in the oven. Babies bottles fitted with a screw cap or teat are
considered to be sealed containers.
b. Do not use excessive amount of time.
c. When boiling liquids in the oven, use a wide-mouthed container.
d. Stand at least for 20 seconds at the end of cooking to avoid delayed eruptive boiling of liquids.
e. Stir the liquid before and during cooking. Use extreme care when handling the container or inserting
a spoon or other utensil into the container.
This oven is for home food preparation only and should only be used for heating, cooking and defrosting
food and beverage.
It is not suitable for commercial, laboratory use, or heating therapeutic devices eg. Wheat bags.
Never operate the oven whilst any object is caught or jammed between the door and the oven.
Do not try to adjust or repair the oven yourself.
It is hazardous for anyone other than a qualified service technician trained by SHARP to carry out any
service or repair operation. Especially those which involve the removal of a cover which gives protection
against exposure to microwave energy are very hazardous.
Do not operate the oven if it is not working correctly or damaged until it has been repaired by a qualified
service technician trained by SHARP. It is particularly important that the oven door closes properly and
that there is no damage to:
(1) Door (warped), (2) Hinges and Latches (broken or loosened), (3) Door Seals, Sealing Surfaces and
oven cavity (buckled or deformed), (4) Burn marks on the door seal faces.
Do not bump, or catch utensils, loose clothes and your accessories on the door safety latches when
removing food from the oven.
Never poke an object, particularly a metal object, through a grille or between the door and the oven while
the oven is operating.
Never tamper with or deactivate the door safety latches.
Always use oven gloves to prevent burns when handling utensils that are in contact with hot food. Enough
heat from the food can transfer through utensils to cause skin burns.
Should the power supply cord become damaged, it must be replaced with a special cord supplied by a
SERVICE CENTRE APPROVED BY SHARP and it must be replaced by a qualified service technician trained
by SHARP in order to avoid a hazard.
If the oven lamp fails please consult your dealer or a qualified service technician trained by SHARP.
Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from the face and hands.
Slowly lift the furthest edge of a dish's cover including microwave plastic wrap etc., and carefully open
popcorn and oven cooking bags away from the face.
Make sure that the power supply cord is undamaged, and that it does not run under the oven or over any
hot surfaces or sharp edges.
Do not place anything on the outer cabinet.
Do not store food or any other items inside the oven.
Make sure the utensil does not touch the interior walls during cooking.
Only allow children to use the oven without supervision when adequate instructions have been given so
that the child is able to use the oven in a safe way and understands the hazards of improper use.
This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

AUTO MENU OPERATION
EASY DEFROST OPERATION
EASY DEFROST
This function allows you to select a range of weights, ranging from 100g to 2000g, which have been preprogrammed with a time and power level so that the following food can be defrosted easily: beef, chicken, pork
and lamb.
1. Press the DEFROST button once. The screen will display “500g”.
2. Press the
or
buttons to select the food weight. The weight ranges from 100g to 2000g.
3. Press the START/CONFIRM/+30 SEC button to begin defrosting.
For example:
To defrost 1000g of beef mince
1. Press the DEFROST
button once.
2. Press the
button
until “1000g” is displayed.
3. Press the
START/CONFIRM/+30 SEC
button once
NOTES:
• Frozen foods are defrosted from -18°C
• If necessary, shield small areas of meat with flat pieces of aluminium foil. This will prevent the areas from
becomming warm during defrosting. Ensure the foil does not touch the microwave walls.
• After defrosting, cover the food in foil and leave to stand until thoroughly defrosted
• The pre-set microwave power level is 30% and cannot be changed.
DEFROSTING ADVICE
Defrosting food using your microwave oven is the quickest method of all.
It is a simple proccess but the following instructions are essential to ensure the food is thoroughly defrosted.
Rearrange
Foods that are placed towards the centre of the dish will defrost quicker than foods
in the edge. It is therefore essential that the food is rearranged up to 4 times during
defrosting.
Rearrange over-lapping areas and closely packed pieces.
This will ensure that all parts of the food defrosts evenly.
Separate
Shield
Foods may be stuck together when removed from the freezer. It is important to separate
llets.
Some areas of food being defrosted may become warm. To prevent them becoming
warmer and starting to cook, these areas can be shielded with small pieces of foil, which
ect microwaves, e.g. legs and wings on a chicken.
Stand
Standing time is necessary to ensure food is thoroughly defrosted. Defrosting is not
complete once the food is removed from the microwave oven. Food must stand, covered,
for a length of time to ensure the centre has completly defrosted.
Turn over
It is essential that all foods are turned over at least once during defrosting. This is
important to ensure thorough defrosting.
NOTES:
• Remove all packaging and wrapping before defrosting.
• To defrost food, use microwave power levels 10% to 30%.
9
MULTI-STAGE COOKING
This function allows you to cook using up to 3 different stages of microwave or grill cooking. The audible signal will
sound once after each stage is completed and the next stage is beginning.
NOTE: The defrost and auto menu functions cannot be set as one of the stages in multi-stage cooking.
If using the grill function, best results will be achieved by placing the food on the grilling rack for this stage of
cooking. This rack can only be used for grilling; use of the rack during mircowave cooking can result in arching.
An audible signal will sound twice halfway through the grill stage of cooking to remind you to turn over the food.
For example:
To cook for 4 minutes on 80% microwave power and then 2 minutes on grill
1. Press the MICROWAVE button 3 times until “P80” is displayed.
2. Press the
button 12 times until “4:00” is displayed.
3. Press the GRILL button once.
4. Press the
button 8 times until “2:00” is displayed.
5. Press the START/CONFIRM/+30 SEC button to begin cooking.

REHEATING ADVICE
For the reheating of foods, follow the advice and guidelines below to ensure food is thoroughly reheated before
serving.
Plated meals
Place smaller items of food to the edge of the plate and larger and
thicker foods to the centre. Cover with vented microwave cling film
and reheat on 80%. Stir/rearrange halfway through reheating.
NOTE: Ensure the food is thoroughly reheated before serving.
Sliced meat
Cover with ventilated cling film and reheat on 80%. Reheat at least
once to ensure even reheating.
NOTE: Ensure the meat is thoroughly reheated before serving.

14. GENERAL
Your microwave oven is capable of heating food and beverages very quickly
therefore, it is very important that you select the appropriate cooking time and
power level for the type and quantity of food to be heated. If you are unsure
of the cooking time and power level required, begin with low cooking times
and power levels until the food is sufficiently heated evenly throughout.
12. QUANTITY
Microwave cooking times are directly related to the amount of food in the
oven. Because energy is absorbed by the food itself, one potato or a single
piece of chicken cooks rapidly. When the energy is divided among several
items, cooking takes more time.
11. STARTING TEMPERATURE
Frozen or refrigerated foods take longer to heat than food at room temperature.
Cooking times in this book are based on normal storage temperatures. Since
rooms, refrigerators and freezers differ in temperature, check cooking result
at the minimum time.
13. CONDENSATION
Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking. The humidity and
moisture in food will influence the amount of condensation in the oven.
Generally, covered foods will not cause as much condensation as uncovered
foods. Ensure that the ventilation openings are not blocked.
10. FAT AND BONE
Marbling within meat, or a thin, even layer of fat on a roast, speeds cooking.
Large fatty areas or excess drippings in dish attract energy away from meat,
and slows cooking. Centre bones do not affect cooking, but bone on the
side of meat conducts heat to the areas next to it.
8. SIZE
Small pieces cook faster than large ones. To speed up cooking, cut pieces
smaller than 5 cm so microwaves can penetrate to the centre from all sides.
For even cooking, make all the pieces the same size.
9. DENSITY
The depth to which microwaves penetrate food varies depending on the
food's density. Porous foods like minced beef or mashed potatoes microwave
faster than dense ones like steak or whole potatoes.
FISH
CHICKEN
7. STIRRING
Stir foods from the outside to the centre of the dish, once or twice during
cooking if possible.
Eg. Casseroles and Sauces.
EGG
6. STANDING TIME
Standing time is important. After cooking or defrosting ensure adequate
standing time. This allows the food to continue cooking or heating.
Refer to cooking guides for each menu or according to manufacturers
instructions.
TOMATO
4. PIERCING
Pierce potatoes, eggs, tomatoes or any foods with a skin or membrane to
allow steam to escape.
3. COVERING
Cover foods in the microwave if you would normally cover the food in
your ordinary oven, or to retain moisture. Cover foods such as Vegetables,
Casseroles, or when Reheating.
Use to cover foods:
LID
PLASTIC WRAP
PAPER TOWEL
5. SHIELDING
Shield using small pieces of aluminium foil to shield thin areas of meat, fish
and poultry or edges of cakes to prevent overcooking.
2. TURNING
Foods such as poultry and joints of meat should be turned over after half the
cooking time.
1. THE ARRANGEMENT
Arrange foods carefully. Place thickest areas toward inside of the dish.
HELPFUL HINTS
1. Combine the butter, onion and garlic in a large pyrex
bowl. Place in the centre of the microwave and cook on
