YOU CAN CHANGE THE POPCORN SETTIGN TO “REMEMBER” A DIFFERENT COOK TIME.

You may wish to do this if your favorite size of popcorn is something other than 3 1/2 oz. Sizes (or your 3 1/2 oz bag does not cook properly) from the individual 2 oz. Size up to the larger “family size” packages are now available. If you do change the popcorn setting, however, the oven will continue to select the new setting each time you touch the POPCORN pad until you reset it again.

To reset POPCORN time: Tap POPCORN pad twice. ENTER TIME appears on display. Touch number pads to enter minutes and seconds. Touch START pad. This new cook time will remain whenever you use the POPCORN pad until you reset it.

VOUS POUVEZ MODIFIER LE REGLAGE DE MAIS SOUFFLE POUR QU’IL “SEPAPPELLE” UNE DUREE DIFFERENTE DE CUISSON. Vous pouvez choisir de le faire si le fomat de votre marqure préférée de mais soufflé est different des formats de 3 1/2 oz(ou votre maïs de sou soufflé des formats de 3 1/2 oz n’est pas bien buisiné).On tourve maintenant des formats allant du format individuel de 2 onces au grand format “familial”.Si vous modifier le réglage, le four continuer d’utiliser le régalage modifié chaque fois vous appuyez sur la touche POPCORN,jusqu’à ce que vous fassiez une nouvelle modification.

Pour modifier la durée de caisson, appuyez deux fois sur la touché POPCORN. Les mots ENTER TIME s’affichent. Entrez la durée en minutes et secondes à l’aide des toucheds de chiffres. Appuyez sur la touche START/STOP. Cette nouvelle durée de caisson sera conserve en mémoire pour l’utilisation de la touche POPCORN jusqu’à ce qu’elle soit modifiée.

PUEDE CAMBIAR LA GRADUACIÓN PARA POPCORN PARA “RECORDAR”UN TIEMPO DE COCCION DIFERENTE. Es possible que desee hacer esto si el tamaño de su bolsa de popcorn favorite es diferente al de 3 1/2 onzas. Ahora hay tamaños de bolsas individuales de 2 onzas hasta los más grandes, de “tamaño familiar”. Pero, si usted no cambia la graduación cada vez que toque el botón POPCORN, hasta que lo vuelva a reposicionar.

Para cmabiar la graduación del tiempo para POPCORN,toque dos veces botón

POPCORN. En el visualizador aparece mensaje: ENTER TIME(entre el timpo). Toque los botones correspondientes en el teclado numérico para entrar minutos y segundos. Toque el botón START(arrancar).Este Nuevo tiempo de cocción se mantendrá cada vez que use el botón POPCORN, hasta que lo reposicione.

Power Supply Cord

1.A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.

2.Longer cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.

3.If long cord or extension cord is used:

a)The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance.

b)The extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire cord, and The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter op or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.

UTENSILS GUIDE

1.The ideal material for a microwave utensil is transparent to microwaves, it should allow energy to pass through the container and heat the food.

2.Microwave cannot penetrate metal, so metal utensils or dishes with metallic trim should not be used.

3.Do not use recycled paper products when microwave cooking, as they may contain small metal fragments which may cause sparks and/or fires.

4.A round dish is preferable to oval or rectangular dishes, because food cooked in corners allow more exposure to microwaves. Over cooking at corners may occur. The list below is a general guide to help you select the correct utensils.

MICROWAVE COOKING PRINCIPLES

The speed and evenness of microwave cooking is affected by the foods themselves. Microwaves penetrate foods to a depth of 1.8 to 3.8 cm (3/4 to 1/2 inches) on all surfaces. The interior of foods greater than 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter heats by conduction. Food with high water, fat or sugar content respond quickly to microwave energy.

Quantity. Microwave cooking times are directly because energy is absorbed by the food itself. related to the amount of food in the oven

CONTINUES ON PAGE 5

4

MICROWAVE COOKING PRINCIPLES

Size. Small pieces cook faster than large ones. To speed cooking, cut pieces smaller than 5 cm (2 inches), so microwave can penetrate to the center from all sides. For even cooking, make all the pieces the same size.

Shape. Foods irregular in shape, like fish or chicken breasts, take longer to cook in the thicker parts. To help them cook evenly, place the thickest parts to the outside of the dish, where they will receive more energy.

Starting temperature. Frozen or refrigerated food takes longer to heat than food at room temperature. Moisture Content. Microwaves are attracted by moisture. Naturally moist foods microwave better than

dry ones. Add a minimum of liquid to moist foods, as excess water slows cooking. Prick foods with skins like those on potatoes or squash, so internal steam can escape.

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 to slow cooking. Center bones do not affect cooking, but bone on the side of meat conducts heat to the areas next to it.

Density. The depth to which microwaves penetrate foods varies depending on their density. Porous foods, like ground beef or mashed potatoes, microwave faster than dense ones like steak or whole potatoes

If oven is in cooking operation, one long beep can be heard and TIMER will leave display while oven is continuing cooking time countdown.

3.SETTING THE COOKING TIME & POWER LEVEL

A. QUICK & EASY

When cooking at 100% power, simply set cook time by touching number pads (for example, 3 minutes: touch 3-0-0) and START. 100% power is automatically set. For 1-step cooking, you do not have to touch COOK pad before setting time.

B.TO COOK AT LOWER POWER LEVELS

After setting cook time, touch POWER pad then single digit representing the power level desired. Touch START pad. Since oven automatically assumes 100% power, you must switch power level (when desired) after setting cook time.

C.TWO-STAGE COOKING

Two-stage cook function lets you cook a food at two different power levels with one time setting. For example, rice should be cooked in two stages. Stage 1 starts rice at 100% power for 5 minutes; stage 2 completes cooking 10-12 minutes at 50% power level.

SET STAGE 1:

Assuming 100% power, just touch number pad illustrated in “Quick and Easy” setting above for correct first stage time. (Most 2 stage recipes start with 100% power but you can also switch power levels after setting cook time.)

DO NOT TOUCH START PAD. SET STAGE 2:

Touch COOK pad then enter proper cooking time and (lower) power level. (Most 2 stage recipes use lower power for second stage.) Touch START pad. First stage of cooking begins.

MEM (memory) word prompt shows on the display during Stage 1 Cooking, indicating that the oven is remembering that a second step (stage 2) has been programmed. After Stage 1 time has elapsed, signal may be heard, signaling the beginning of Stage 2.

AFTER TOTAL TIME HAS ELAPSED, 4 long beeps sound and END appears in display. Touch RESET pad or open oven door to clear END before starting another cooking function.

THESE ARE NORMAL:

Outside of oven may feel warm. Steam may escape from oven or moisture in oven may be seen after cooking.

Change in interior light intensity, and change in blower sound when lower power setting are used. TV or radio interference (similar to interference experienced in other small appliances) may be noticed. This does not indicate a problem.

4. SETTING “SPEED DEFROST”

A.Speed Defrost automatically sets microwave oven power for quickest thawing of small to medium size foods. Speed Defrost works in conjunction with the Timer, so you must know how much time to set. Speed Defrost thawing times are usually fast enough that you stay close to oven and can attend to the food as it is defrosting. Many foods benefit from being turned over, rearranged or broken apart (if separate pieces are frozen together.) This attention makes defrosting faster and more even. “How do I know whether to set Speed Defrost or Defrost by Weight?” This is determined by the type of food being defrosted

and amount of attention that must be paid to the food. The automatic-coded Defrost by Weight requires only turn-over of the meat.

• Touch SPEED DEFROST pad.

Word prompts ENTER DEF TIME shows on the display.

Enter desired Speed Defrost time by touching correct number pads. Digital timer sets minutes and seconds from left to right so a single digit can be set (5 for 5 seconds) or up to 4 digits (2405 for 24 minutes 5 seconds). ENTER DEF remains on the display. Touch START/STOP pad. DEF flashes on the display and defrost time begins counting down. AFTER TIME HAS ELAPSED signal sound and END appears in display. Touch RESET pad or open door to clear END before starting another cooking function.

B.To set “SPEED DEFROST” and one or two-stage cooking sequentially. After setting SPEED DEFROST, oven can be programmed to automatically switch to One or Two-Stage cook. This feature is useful for frozen, moist casseroles and similar foods which can be stirred while reconstituting. After defrosting, cook at 100% power level, then reduce to lower settings until bubbling hot. Stir occasionally to break up and redistribute heat.

9

For Defrost and One Stage Cook, follow steps above. Before touching START pad, touch COOK pad, enter time using number pads and power if desired. Then touch START pad. MEM shows on the display until oven switches (beeps twice) to COOK. See page 9 for detailed information on Staged Cooking.

For Defrost and Two Stage Cook, follow steps above. Before touching START pad, enter two COOK programs, using a different (usually lower) power for the second COOK. MEM shows on the display during both Defrost and first COOK stage. Signal sound when switching stages.

INTERRUPT DEFROSTING (to stir food, turn it over, or provide other attention). Either touch START/STOP pad or open the oven door. Unelapsed time will show on display; recluse the door and restart to continue. Or if no additional defrosting is required, touching RESET pad clears the display.

5.SETTING COOK BY WEIGHT“

This feature is for roasting meats in the microwave. Its pre-set times and power levels give better results than microwaving at one power only, and it is easier to microwave meat with this setting than with cookbook instructions because you do not have to calculate “minutes per pound” cooking times. As soon as you enter the code (which tells the oven the type of meat) and the weight, the oven calculates cooking time. Meat must be defrosted and at refrigerated temperature to correspond with the pre-set times in this code. Meat-roast weights in about the 3 to 5 pound range microwave best, COOK BY WEIGHT code allows a setting lower than 3 lb. but no higher than 5 lb. Depending on code, two beeps signal an error in setting a too-high weight. “Cook by Weight” programs the oven to stop after partial cooking, so meat won’t overcook on one side. Turn meat over, then touch START pad to continue cooking.

Touch CCOK BY WEIGHT pad. World prompt shows ENTER CODE on display.

Select desired code from 1 through 3. Door frame (open the door to review) and chart at right describe types of food for each code.

Enter the one-digit code by touching the correct number pad.

Check weight of meat. Weight must be in pounds and ounces. If label gives weight in pounds only, change the fraction of a pound to ounces using chart on page 11.

Enter weight. Word prompt ENTER shows in display and 0’s show where LB and OZ should be entered. LB flashes until you enter pound(s) by touching correct number pad. When pound(s) has been entered, LB will stop flashing and OZ will flash. As soon as all these digits have been set, display will immediately show cook time. Ounce weights less than 10 must be preceded by a 0. As soon as three digits are set, display immediately shows cook time.

Touch START/STOP to start oven, CODE flashes in display as time counts down. Interior light goes on and fan sound is heard. Signal sound after about 1/4 time. If necessary, check thin edges of meat and poultry for shielding.

After partial cooking, oven beeps twice and stops. Interior light goes off but time remains on the display. Stop is to prevent meat’s overcooking on one side before turning over. After turning meat over, touch START pad to resume the time on display and finish cooking.

After total cooking time, 4 long beeps sound and END appears in display. Touch RESET or open oven door to clear END before starting another cooking function. Let roast stand few minutes before carving.

When oven switches power levels, you may observe change in lighting intensity and/or change in blower sound. This is normal.

6.Setting “defrost by weight”

Set DEFROST BY WEIGHT for any weight up to 6 pounds. Because it is a more gentle defrost setting than “Speed Defrost”, it is especially good for meats which are dense in the center but vulnerable to overcooking on the edges. For meats as small as a pound of hamburger or delicate shrimp, choosing DEFROST BY WEIGHT will give more even thawed results than SPEED DEFROST setting. Choose DEFROST BY WEIGHT for large roasts.

Check weight of meat. It must be in pounds and ounces. If label gives weight in pounds only, you can change the fraction of a pound to ounces using chart on page 11. Unwrap meat before defrosting. Touch DEFROST BY WEIGHT pad. Word prompt ENTER shows in display and 0’s show where LB and OZ should be entered. LB flashes until you enter pound(s) by touching correct number pad. When pound(s) has been entered, LB will stop flashing and OZ will flash. As soon as all these digits have been set, display will immediately show cook time. Ounce weights less than 10 must be preceded by a 0. As soon as three digits are set, display immediately shows cook time.

Touch START/STOP pad to start oven. CODE flashes in display as time counts down. Interior light goes on, turntable rotates and fan sound is heard.

After partial defrosting, oven beeps twice and stops. Interior light goes off but time remains on the display. This pause in operation is to allow turning over, rearranging or shield. After attending to meat appropriately, touch START to resume the time on display and finish cooking. After total cooking time, 4 long beeps sound and END appears in display. Touch RESET or open oven door to clear

END before starting another cooking function. Notes:

Allow enough time for defrosting because it is more slow and gradual than SPEED DEFROST. With DEFROST BY WEIGHT, low power microwaving is interspersed within “resting” and “standing” periods where no microwave at all enter the oven. These no-microwave periods allow meat to equalize in temperature before next period of microwaving automatically comes on.

“DEPROST BY WEIGHT” automatically sets the correct thawing time, but you must enter the food weight accurately. Weight must be in pounds and ounces. Place meat on microwave-safe rack in microwave roasting dish. Place meats fat-side down and poultry breast-side down.

7.SETTIGN “SAFETY LOCK”

The safety lock prevents unsupervised operation by little children. During idle mode, press and hold the RESET pad for 3 seconds to activate the child lock function. To cancel the child lock, press and hold the RESET pad for 3 seconds again in idle mode.

ABOUT “ONE TOUCH” COOKING

Your oven has 6 “ONE TOUCH” cooking programs for microwaving popular foods. When selecting a “ONE TOUCH” setting, check visual guide on pad for correct setting. Where dots (.) (..) are shown on a “ONE TOUCH” pad, more than one size of food can be cooked. Three “ONE TOUCH” settings allow you to cook several amounts (one or more items) of the same food. These include the “FROZEN ENTER”, “BAKED POTATO” and “BEVERAGE”. After you touch these pads, AMT(amount) appears on the display as a reminder to program the number of items you are microwaving into the oven’s control. The categories which have dots corresponding to two sizes of foods include: “PROZEN ENTER”, “BAKED POTATO”,”PIZZA” AND “BEVERAGE”. In each “ONE TOUCH COOK” category, smaller size food is set by touching pad once. One dot (.) below picture of smaller-size food signifies one touch of the pad. The large size can be set by tapping the picture pad twice. Two dots (..) below the picture of large size food signifies two taps of the pad. Where AMT appears with “ONE TOUCH” settings, setting a greater number of items than allowed will result in two beeps, signaling an error. The following pages give the maximum number of items allowed for each setting.

SETTING “POPCORN”

The “POPCORN” control automatically sets the correct COOK time for a 3 1/2 oz. bag of microwave popcorn.

YOU CAN CHANGE THE POPCORN SETTING TO “REMEMBER” A DIFFERENT

COOK TIME. You may wish to do this if your favorite size of popcorn is something other than 3 1/2 oz. Sizes from the individual 2 oz. size up to the larger “family size” packages are now available. If you do change the popcorn setting, however, the oven will continue to select the new setting each time you touch the POPCORN pad until you reset it again.

TO AVOID DISCOLRATION ON YOUR OVEN TURNTABLE, set microwave popcorn packages on a microwaveable saucer or other small plate. The “this side down” side of microwave popcorn bags contains a heat-absorbing lining which gets very hot. Placing a saucer between the bag and the turntable prevents the bag’s dyes from staining the turntable when hot.

TIPS TO KNOW ABOUT MICROWAVE POPCORN: Check popcorn as it pops and stop when pops slow down to 3 seconds apart. Do not try to re-pop unpopped kernels. Unless you have a microwave recommended utensil for popping corn, use only commercial bags of microwave popcorn. Using glass or ceramic dishes or paper bags may cause harm to oven. Be careful when handling hot bags of popcorn. To prevent steam burns, keep hands to sides of package, rather than the top. Especially warm children of high heat in popcorn bags.

1.Touch POPCORN Pad, CCOK appears on the display, along with time setting of 2:40 (2 min. 40 sec.). This pre-set cook time has been coordinated with the oven’s wattage for best results of a regular-size 3 1/2 oz. bag of popcorn.

2.Touch START pad. Word prompt COOK flashes while the timer counts down during cooking operation. Interior light goes on and fan sound is heard. Turntable rotates. (For single popcorn bag, leaving turntable on gives best cooking results.)

The “POTATO” automatic setting allows you to easily set the microwave to cook a variety of potatoes. A built-in standing time helps equalize the potatoes temperature during the microwave process. Touch once for small to average (3.5 to 5 oz.) potatoes. Tap twice for the hefty 6 to 8 oz. dinner size. After you select the size of potato (by touching once for small-medium or tapping twice for large), you must set the amount the number of potatoes you are cooking. With the POTATO pad, you can cook up to 4 potatoes of either size.

1.For 4 to 6 oz. potatoes, touch POTATO pad once. ENTER AMT appears on display. Enter number of potatoes (up to 4) by touching number pads from 1 to 4. Cook times for small-medium potatoes are as follows:
