Microwave safety

Warning! Never leave the oven unwatched, especially when using paper, plastic or other combustible materials. These materials can char and may fire. FIRE RISK!

Warning! Do not heat pure alcohol or alcoholic drinks in the microwave. FIRE RISK!

Warning! Do not heat liquids or other foods in closed containers since these may explode readily.

Warning! 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.

Warning! If the oven has a combined function mode (microwave with other means of heating), children should not be allowed to use the oven without adult supervision on account of the high temperatures generated.

Warning! The oven cannot be used if:

-The door is not closed correctly;

-The door hinges are damaged;

-The surfaces of the contact between the door and the oven front are damaged;

-The door window glass is damaged;

-There is frequent electrical arcing inside the oven even though there is no metal object inside.

The oven can only be used again after it has been repaired by a Technical Assistance Service technician.

Beware!

Never heat baby foods or drinks in bottles or jars with the teats or lids on them. After heating the food mix or shake well so that the heat is spread evenly. Check the food temperature before feeding this to the child. DANGER OF BURNING!

To avoid food overheating or burning it is very important not to select long time periods or power levels that are too high when heating small quantities of food. For example, a bread roll can burn after 3 minutes if the power selected is too high.

For toasting, use just the broiling function and watch the oven all the time. It you use a combined function to toast bread it will catch fire in a very short time.

Make sure you never catch the power cables of other electrical appliances in the hot door or the oven. The cable insulation may melt.

Danger of short-circuiting!

Microwave safety

This oven is exclusively for domestic use! Use the oven only for preparing meals.

Avoid damaging the oven or other dangerous situations by following these instructions:

Do not switch on the oven without the turntable support, the turntable ring and the respective plate being in place.

Never switch on the microwave when it is empty. If there is no food inside there may be an electrical overcharge and the oven could be damaged. RISK OF DAMAGE!

For carrying out oven programming tests put a glass of water inside the oven. The water will absorb the microwaves and the oven will not be damaged.

Use only dishes suitable for microwaves. Before using dishes and containers in the microwave, check that these are suitable (see the section on types of dishes).

Never remove the mica cover on the ceiling of the oven interior! This cover stops fat and pieces of food damaging the microwave generator.

Do not keep any inflammable object inside the oven as it may burn if the oven is switched on.

Do not use the oven as a pantry.

Eggs with their shells and whole boiled eggs must not be heated in microwave ovens because they may explode.

Do not use the oven for frying as it is impossible to control the temperature of oil heated by microwaves.

To avoid being burnt, always use oven gloves for handling dishes and containers and touching the oven.

Do not lean or sit on the open oven door.

This may damage the oven, especially in the

hinge zone. The door can bear a maximum weight of 8 kg.

The turntable and the Broilers can bear a maximum load of 8 kg. To avoid damaging the oven, do not exceed this load.

Cleaning:

Warning! Your microwave oven must be cleaned regularly. All food remains must be removed (see section on Oven Cleaning). If the microwave oven is not kept clean its surface may deteriorate and this may shorten the oven’s working life and could even result in a dangerous situation.

The door contact surfaces (the front of the cavity and the inside part of the doors) must be kept very clean in order to ensure the oven functions correctly.

Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven door glass since they can scratch the surface, which may result in shattering of the glass.

Do not use high pressure or stream jet cleaning appliances.

Please follow the instructions regarding cleaning in the section “Oven Cleaning and Maintenance”.

Repairs:

Warning – Microwaves! The outer protection of the oven must not be removed. It is dangerous for anyone not authorized by the manufacturer to carry out any kind of repair or maintenance work.

If the power cable is damaged it should be substituted by the manufacturer, authorized agents or technicians qualified for this task in order to avoid dangerous situations. Furthermore, special tools are required for this task.

Repair and maintenance work, especially of current carrying parts, can only be carried out by technicians authorized by the manufacturer.

The advantages of microwaves

In conventional ovens, heat radiated by electrical elements or gas burners slowly penetrates the food from outside to inside. On account of this there is a major amount of energy is wasted heating the air, the oven components and the food containers.

In a microwave oven, heat is generated by the food itself and the heat travels from inside to outside. No heat is lost to the air, the walls of the oven cavity or the dishes and containers (if these are suitable for use in microwave oven), in other words, only the food is heated.

Microwave ovens have the following advantages:

1.Shorter cooking times; in general these are up to 3/4 less than the time required for conventional cooking.

2.Ultra-fast food defrosting, thus reducing the danger of bacterial development.

3.Energy savings.

4.Conservation of the nutritional value of foods due to the shorter cooking times.

5.Easy to clean.

How a microwave oven works

In a microwave oven there is a high tension valve called a magnetron which converts electrical energy into microwave energy. These electromagnetic waves are channeled to the interior of the oven through a wave guide and distributed by a metallic spreader or through a turntable.

Inside the oven the microwaves propagate in all directions and are reflected by the metal walls, uniformly penetrating the food.

9

Why food heats up

Most foods contain water and water molecules vibrate when subjected to microwaves.

The friction between molecules produces heat which raises the temperature of the food, defreezing it, cooking it or keeping it hot.

Since the heat arises inside the food:

This can be cooked with little or no liquid or fats/oils;

De-freezing, heating or cooking in a microwave oven is quicker than in a conventional oven;

The vitamins, minerals and nutritional substances in the food are conserved;

The natural color and aroma of the food are unchanged.

Microwaves pass through china, glass, cardboard or plastic but do not go through metal. For this reason, metal containers or ones with metal parts must not be used in a microwave oven.

Microwaves are reflected by metal...

... but go through glass and china...

... and are absorbed by foods.

Defrosting

General instructions for defrosting

1.When defrosting, use only dishes that are appropriate for microwaves (china, glass, suitable plastic).

2.The defrost function by weight and the tables refer to the defrosting of raw food.

3.The defrosting time depends on the quantity and thickness of the food. When freezing food keep the defrosting process in mind. Distribute the food evenly in the container.

4.Distribute the food as best as possible inside the oven. The thickest parts of fish or chicken drumsticks should be turned towards the outside. You can protect the most delicate parts of food with pieces of aluminum foil. Important: The aluminum foil must not come into contact with the oven cavity interior as this can cause electrical arcing.

5.Thick portions of food should be turned several times.

6.Distribute the frozen food as evenly as possible since narrow and thin portions defrost more quickly than the thicker and broader parts.

7.Fat-rich foods such as butter, cream cheese and cream should not be completely defrosted. If they are kept at room temperature they will be ready to be served in a few minutes. With ultra-frozen cream, if you find small pieces of ice in it, you should mix these in before serving.

21

8.Place poultry on an upturned plate so that the meat juices can run off more easily.

9.Bread should be wrapped in a napkin so that it does not become too dry.

10.Turn the food at regular intervals and when the oven displays .

11.Remove frozen food from its wrapping and do not forget to take off any metal twisttags. For containers that are used to keep frozen food in the freezer and which can also be used for heating and cooking, all you need to do is take off the lid. For all other cases you should put the food into containers that are suitable for microwave use.

12.The liquid resulting from defrosting, principally that from poultry should be discarded. In no event should such liquids be allowed to come into contact with other foods.

13.Do not forget that by using the defrosting function you need to allow for standing time until the food is completely defrosted.

Cooking with a microwave oven

Warning! Read the section “Microwave Safety” before cooking with your microwave.

Follow these recommendations when cooking with your microwave:

Before heating or cooking foods with peel or skin (e.g. apples, tomatoes, potatoes, sausages) prick them so that they do not burst. Cut the food up before starting to prepare it.

Before using a container or dish make sure that it is suitable for microwave use (see the section on types of ovenware).

When cooking food with very little moisture (e.g. defrosting bread, making popcorn, etc.) evaporation is very quick. The oven then works as if it was empty and the food may burn. The oven and the container may be damaged in such a situation. You should therefore set just the cooking time necessary and you must keep a close eye on the cooking process.

It is not possible to heat large quantities of oil (frying) in the microwave.

Remove pre-cooked food from the containers they come in since these are not always heat resistant. Follow the food manufacturer’s instructions.

If you have several containers, such as cups, for example, set them out uniformly on the turntable plate.

Do not close plastic bags with metal clips. Use plastic clips instead. Prick the bags several times so that the steam can escape easily.

When heating or cooking foods, check that they reach at least a temperature of 158°F.

During cooking, steam may form on the oven door window and may start to drip. This situation is normal and may be more noticeable if the room temperature is low.

The oven’s safe working is not affected by

this. After you have finished cooking, clean up the water coming from the condensation

When heating liquids, use containers with a wide opening, so that the steam can evaporate easily.

Prepare the foods as per the instructions and keep in mind the cooking times and power levels indicated in the tables.

Keep in mind that the figures given are only indicative and can vary depending on the initial state, temperature, moisture and type of food. It is advisable to adjust the times and power levels to each situation. Depending on the exact characteristics of the food you may need to increase or shorten the cooking times or increase or decrease the power levels.

Cooking with microwaves rules

1.The greater the amount of food, the longer the cooking time. Keep in mind that:

Double the quantity » double the time

Half the quantity » half the time

2.The lower the temperature, the longer the cooking time.

3.Foods containing a lot of liquid heat up more quickly.

4.Cooking will be more uniform if the food is evenly distributed on the turntable. If you put dense foods on the outside part of the plate and less dense ones on the center of the plate, you can heat up different types of food simultaneously.

5.You can open the oven door at any time. When you do this the oven switches off automatically. The microwave will only start working again when you close the door and press the start key.

6.Foods that are covered require less cooking time and retain their characteristics better. The lids used must let microwaves pass through and have small holes that allow steam to escape.
