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. 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 through 7KH PLFURZDYHV WKHQ ERXQFH RII D PHWDO pRRr, back through the glass turntable, and are absorbed by the food. Microwaves pass through most glass, paper, and plastics Magnetron Oven cavity Glass turntable Metal floor

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. the receiving antenna of the radio or television. Adjusting the receiver away from the microwave oven. Moving Plugging WKH PLFURZDYH RYHQ LQWR D GLçHUHQW RXWOHW VR WKDW WKH PLFURZDYH RYHQ DQG UHFHLYHU DUH RQ GLçHUHQW EUDQFK FLUFXLWs.

Place the empty cookware in the microwave oven. 2. Measure 1 cup (250ml) 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 wire shelf , damaging the cookware, the wire 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.

Microwave Cooking Tips Amount of Food v ,I \RX LQFUHDVH RU GHFUHDVH 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. Starting Temperature of Food v 7KH ORZHU WKH WHPSHUDWXUH 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 Releasing Pressure in Foods v 6HYHUDO IRRGV (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. Using Standing Time v $OZD\V DOORZ IRRG WR VWDQG 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.

Fat and sugar will also reach a higher temperature than water in the cooking process. v 7KH PRUH GHQVH WKH IRRG 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 v 6PDOOHU SLHFHV RI IRRG will cook faster than larger pieces. Also, same shaped pieces cook PRUH HYHQO\ WKDQ GLçHUHQWO\ VKDSHG SLHFHs. :LWK IRRGV WKDW KDYH GLçHUHQW WKLFNQHVVHV 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 \RX DUH FRRNLQJ VHYHUDO LWHPV RI WKH VDPH IRRG such as baked potatoes, place them in a ring pattern for uniform cooking.

times, and keep food moist. v You can use any covering that lets microwaves pass through. See "Getting to Know Your Microwave Oven" for materials that microwaves will pass through. Do not use the microwave oven to sterilize objects (baby bottles, etc.). It is difficult to keep the oven at the high temperature needed for sterilization.
Wire Shelf Use ∙ Use the wire shelf ONLY when cooking on two levels. Place equal amounts of food ON AND BELOW the shelf. The amount of food placed on the shelf and turntable must be approximately the same to balance out the cooking energy. ∙ Place the four corners of the wire shelf securely into the four plastic rack supports in the oven cavity. The wire shelf MUST NOT contact the metal walls or back of the oven cavity. Metal to metal contact can cause arcing, which is a discharge of electrical current that can damage the oven. ∙ Clean plastic rack supports often (see Cleaning section). Soil buildup on supports may also lead to arcing and cause damage to the oven or supports. CAUTION ∙ Do not use the wire shelf when popping microwave popcorn or the metal platform rack can cause damage to your microwave oven. ∙ Do not use the oven with the wire shelf on the microwave floor as this could damage the oven. ∙ Do not handle the wire shelf without using pot ∙ Metal such as twist-ties, poultry pins or gold rimmed dishes in the microwave. ∙ Recycled paper towels containing small metal pieces being used in the microwave. ∙ Food spills that are not cleaned up. ∙ Operating microwave with no food or liquid in the oven cavity. Never start a cooking cycle without food or liquid in the oven. If using the microwave as a timer always use the special timer feature. IMPORTANT: Always remove the wire shelf before pressing Start pad to make popcorn. Leaving shelf in oven can cause damage to oven and shelf. Using Aluminum Foil Containers 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: ∙ holders as the wire shelf may be hot. ∙ Do not use the wire shelf unless cooking or heating more than one food container at the same time. ∙ Do not store the wire shelf in the microwave oven ∙∙ as damage to the oven could result if someone ∙ accidentally turns on the oven. ∙ ∙ ∙ Do not attempt to use any other wire shelf besides the one supplied with this oven. The supplied shelf is designed specifically for this oven and using any other shelf can damage to the oven. ∙ ∙ Do not cook food directly on the wire shelf. ∙ Always place food in a microwave-safe container. Arcing Arcing is the microwave term for sparks in the ∙ microwave oven. If you see arcing, press the Stop/Cancel pad and correct the problem. See list of arcing causes below. Arcing is caused by ∙ ∙ Improper use of the wire shelf. ∙ Metal or foil touching the side of the oven. ∙ Plates or dishes with metallic trim or glaze with a metallic sheen. Place the container in a glass bowl and add some water so that it covers the bottom of the container more than 1/4 in.(.60 cm). This ensures even heating of the container bottom. Always remove the lid to avoid damage to the oven. Use only undamaged containers. Do not use containers taller than 3/4 in.(1.9 cm). The container must be at least half filled. To avoid arcing, there must be a minimum of 1/4 in. (.60 cm) between the aluminum container and the walls of the oven and also between two aluminum containers. Always place the container on the turntable. Shield, with small pieces of aluminum foil, parts of food that may cook quickly; such as wing tips and leg ends of poultry. Heating food in aluminum foil containers usually takes up to double the time compared to reheating in plastic, glass, china, or paper containers. The time when food is ready will vary depending upon the type of container used. Let food stand for 2 to 3 minutes after heating so that heat is spread evenly throughout container.

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. 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.

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. plastic wrap, waxed paper, or a lid. Never use tight- sealing 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.
2 . Always use microwavable containers. At this time you can open the door to stir, turn,or rearrange the food. 3. Match the amount to the size of the container. Fill containers at least half full for best results.

TIPS FOR COMBINATION COOKING 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.
