Use Care When Opening an Oven Door—Stand to the side of the appliance when opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or replace food in the oven.

Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The wall oven is vented at the center trim under the control panel. Touching the surfaces in this area when the oven is operating may cause severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-sensitive items near the oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.

Placement of Oven Racks. Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. Remove all utensils from the rack before removing rack. If rack must be moved while oven is hot, use extreme caution. Use pot holders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let pot holders contact the hot oven element or interior of the oven.

Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. Broiler pan and grid allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler.

About Your Microwave oven

This Use and Care Manual is valuable: read it carefully and always save it for reference.

A good microwave cookbook is a valuable asset. Check it for microwave cooking principles, techniques, hints and recipes.

NEVER use the microwave oven without the turntable and support nor turn the turntable over so that a large dish could be placed in the microwave oven. The

turntable will turn both clockwise and counterclockwise. ALWAYS have food in the microwave oven when it is on to absorb the microwave energy.

When using the microwave oven at power levels below 100%, you may hear the magnetron cycling on and off. It is normal for the exterior of the microwave oven to be

warm to the touch when cooking or reheating. Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking.

Room humidity and the moisture in food will influence the amount of moisture that condenses in the microwave oven. Generally, covered foods will not cause as much condensation as uncovered ones. Ventilation openings must not be blocked.

The microwave oven is for food preparation only. It should not be used to dry clothes or newspapers. All microwave ovens are rated by using the IEC Test Procedure as 1200 watts, except for CPM0209 and CGMO205 which are 1100 watts. In using recipes or

package directions, check food a minute or two before the minimum time and add time accordingly.

About Microwave Cooking

Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas towards outside of dish.

Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount of time indicated and add more as needed. Food severely overcooked can smoke or ignite.

Cover foods while cooking. Check recipe or cookbook for suggestions: paper towels, wax paper, microwave plastic wrap or a lid. Covers prevent spattering and help foods to cook evenly.

Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum foil any thin areas of meat or poultry to prevent overcooking before dense, thick areas are cooked thoroughly.

Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or twice during cooking, if possible.

Turn foods over once during microwaving to speed cooking of such foods as chicken and hamburgers. Large items like roasts must be turned over at least once.

Rearrange foods such as meatballs halfway through cooking both from top to bottom and from the center of the dish to the outside.

Add standing time. Remove food from microwave oven and stir, if possible. Cover for standing time which allows the food to finish cooking without overcooking.

Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating that cooking temperatures have been reached.

Doneness signs include:

-Food steams throughout, not just at edge.

-Center bottom of dish is very hot to the touch.

-Poultry thigh joints move easily.

-Meat and poultry show no pinkness.

-Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

About Utensils and Coverings

It is not necessary to buy all new cookware. Many pieces already in your kitchen can be used successfully in your new microwave oven. Make sure the utensil does not touch the interior walls during cooking.

Use these utensils for safe microwave cooking and reheating:

Glass ceramic (Pyroceram®), such as Corningware®.

Heat-resistantglass (Pyrex®)


Paper plates

Microwave-safepottery, stoneware and porcelain

Browning dish (Do not exceed recommended preheating time. Follow manufacturer’s directions.)

These items can be used for short time reheating of foods that have little fat or sugar in them:

•Wood, straw, wicker


Metal pans and bakeware

Dishes with metallic trim


Non-microwave-safeplastics (margarine tubs)

Recycled paper products

Brown paper bags

Food storage bags

Metal twist-ties

Should you wish to check if a dish is safe for microwaving, place the empty dish in the microwave oven and microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds. A dish which becomes very hot should not be used.

The following coverings are ideal:

Paper towels are good for covering foods for reheating and absorbing fat while cooking bacon.

Wax paper can be used for cooking and reheating.

Plastic wrap that is specially marked for microwave use can be used for cooking and reheating. DO NOT allow plastic wrap to touch food. Vent so steam can escape.

Lids that are microwave-safeare a good choice because heat is kept near the food to hasten cooking.

Oven cooking bags are good for large meats or foods that need tenderizing. DO NOT use metal twist ties. Remember to slit bag so steam can escape.

How to use aluminum foil in your microwave oven:

Small flat pieces of aluminum foil placed smoothly on the food can be used to shield areas that are either defrosting or cooking too quickly.

Foil should not come closer than one inch to any surface of the microwave oven.

Should you have questions about utensils or coverings, check a good microwave cookbook or follow recipe suggestions.

ACCESSORIES There are many microwave accessories available for purchase. Evaluate carefully before you purchase so that they meet your needs. Amicrowave-safethermometer will assist you in determining correct doneness and assure you that foods have been cooked to safe temperatures. Electrolux is not responsible for any damage to the microwave oven when accessories are used.


Microwave oven important information

About Children and the Microwave

Children below the age of 7 should use the microwave oven with a supervising person very near to them. Between the ages of 7 and 12, the supervising person should be in the same room.

At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing on the microwave oven door.

Children should be taught all safety precautions: use potholders, remove coverings carefully, pay special attention to packages that crisp food because they may be extra hot. Don’t assume that because a child has mastered one cooking skill he/she can cook everything.

Children need to learn that the microwave oven is not a toy. See page 15 for Child Lock feature.

About Safety

Check foods to see that they are cooked to the United

States Department of Agriculture’s recommended temperatures.

160½F - For fresh pork, ground meat, boneless white poultry, fish, seafood, egg dishes and frozen prepared food.

165½F - For leftover, ready-to-reheatrefrigerated, and deli andcarry-outfresh food.

170½F - White meat of poultry.

175½F - Dark meat of poultry.

To test for doneness, insert a meat thermometer in a thick or dense area away from fat or bone. Never leave the thermometer in the food during cooking, unless it is approved for microwave oven use.

ALWAYS use potholders 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.

Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from the face and hands. Slowly lift the farthest edge of a dish’s covering and carefully open popcorn and oven cooking bags away from the face.

Stay near the microwave oven while it’s in use and check cooking progress frequently so that there is no chance of overcooking food.

NEVER use the cavity for storing cookbooks or other items.

Select, store and handle food carefully to preserve its high quality and minimize the spread of foodborne bacteria.

Keep waveguide cover clean. Food residue can cause arcing and/or fires.

Use care when removing items from the microwave oven so that the utensil, your clothes or accessories do not touch the safety door latches.
