****** Page 4 ****** The contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars shall be stirred or shaken and the temperature checked before consumption, in order to avoid burns. The oven should be cleaned regularly and any food deposits removed. Failure to maintain the oven in a clean condition could lead to deterioration of the surface that could adversely affect the life of the appliance and possibly result in a hazardous situation. Do not use a temperature probe with this oven. Metallic containers for food and beverages must not be used during microwave cooking. The appliance must not be cleaned with a steam cleaner. CAUTION: This appliance is designed only for cooking food and is intended for indoor use only and should not be used for any other purpose or in any other application, such as for heating a room. The microwave oven is intended for heating food and beverages. Drying of food or clothing and heating of warming pads, slippers, sponges, damp cloths and similar may lead to risk of injury, ignition or fire. The microwave is not intended to be operated by means of an external timer or separate remote-control system. If it is necessary to use an extension cord, its marked electrical rating must be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, and must be 3 core including the earth. Incorrect repairs are dangerous. Repairs may only be carried out and damaged power cables replaced by a suitably qualified and competent electrician. If the appliance is defective, unplug the unit and contact the retailer or manufacturer for support. The cable insulation on electrical appliances may melt when touching hot parts of the appliance. Never bring electrical appliance cables into contact with the microwave. During use the appliance will become hot Accessories and ovenware may become very hot. Always use oven gloves to remove accessories or ovenware from the cooking compartment. Alcoholic vapours may catch fire in the hot cooking compartment. Never prepare food containing large quantities of drinks with a high alcohol content. Only use small quantities of drinks with a high alcohol content. Open the appliance door with care. Foods with peel or skin may burst or explode during, or even after, heating. Never cook eggs in their shells or reheat hard-boiled eggs. Never cook shellfish or crustaceans. Always prick the yoke when baking or poaching eggs. The skin of foods that have a peel or skin, such as apples, tomatoes, potatoes and sausages, may burst. Before heating, prick the peel or skin. Risk of scalding! When you open the appliance door, hot steam may escape. Open the appliance door with care. Keep children at a safe distance. Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed eruptive boiling, therefore care must be taken when handling the container. This means that the liquid reaches boiling temperature without the usual steam bubbles rising to the 4

****** Page 5 ****** surface. Even if the container only vibrates a little, the hot liquid may suddenly boil over and spatter. • When heating, always place a spoon in the container. This will prevent delayed boiling. Risk of injury! Scratched glass in the appliance door may develop into a crack. Do not use a glass scraper, sharp or abrasive cleaning aids or detergents. Unsuitable ovenware may crack. Porcelain or ceramic ovenware can have small perforations in the handles or lids. These perforations conceal a cavity below. Any moisture that penetrates this cavity could cause the ovenware to crack. Only use microwave-safe ovenware CAUSES OF DAMAGE Caution! Creation of sparks: Metal e.g. a spoon in a glass must be kept at least 2 cm from the oven walls and the inside of the door. Sparks could irreparably damage the glass on the inside of the door. Water in the hot cooking compartment: Never pour water into the hot cooking compartment. This will cause steam. The temperature change can cause damage. Moist food: Do not store moist food in the closed cooking compartment for long periods. Do not use the appliance to store food. This can lead to corrosion. Heavily soiled seal: If the seal is very dirty, the appliance door will no longer close properly during operation. Always keep the seal clean.
