IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

SPECIAL NOTES ABOUT MICROWAVING

ARCING

If you see arcing, press the “STOP/Clear” button and correct the problem.

Arcing is the microwave term for sparks in the oven. Arcing is caused by:

Metal or foil touching the side of the oven.

Foil not molded to food (upturned edges act like antennas).

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.

FOODS

Only cook popcorn in your microwave oven using a special microwave popcorn accessory dish, unless you use popcorn labeled for use in microwave ovens.

Some productssuch as whole eggs (with shell),sealed containers, and closed jars - will explode and should not be heated in this microwave oven. Heating these products in the microwave oven could result in injury.

Do not boil eggs in a microwave oven. Pressure will build up inside egg yolk and will cause it to burst, possibly resulting in injury.

Operating the microwave with no food inside for more than a minute or two may cause damage to the oven and could start a fire. It increases the heat around the magnetron and can shorten the life of the oven.

Foods with unbroken outer “skin” such as potatoes, hot dogs, sausages, tomatoes, apples, chicken livers and other giblets, and egg yolks should be pierced to allow steam to escape before cooking.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

SAFETY FACT:

SUPERHEATED WATER

Microwaved water and other liquids do not always bubble when they reach the boiling point. They can actually get superheated and not bubble at all. Superheated liquid can bubble up when it is moved or when something like a spoon or tea bag is put into it.To prevent this from happening and causing injury, do not heat any liquid for more than 2 minutes per cup. After heating, let the cup stand in the microwave for 30 seconds before moving it or putting anything into it.

Avoid heating baby food in glass jars, even with the lid off. Make sure all infant food is thoroughly cooked. Stir food to distribute the heat evenly. Be careful to prevent scalding when warming formula. The container may feel cooler than the milk really is. Always test the milk before feeding the baby.

Spontaneous boiling-Under certain circumstances, liquids may start to boil

during or shortly after removal from the microwave oven. To prevent burns from splashing liquid, we recommend the following: before removing the container from the oven, allow the container to stand in the oven for 30 to 40 seconds after the oven has shut off. Do not boil liquids in narrow-necked containers such as soft drink bottles, wine flasks and especially narrow-necked coffee cups. Even if the container is opened, excessive steam can build up and cause it to burst or overflow.

Don’t defrost frozen beverages in narrow-necked bottles (especially carbonated beverages). Even if the container is opened, pressure can build up. This can cause the container to burst, possibly resulting in injury.

Hot foods and steam can cause burns. Be careful when opening any containers of hot food, including popcorn bags, cooking pouches and boxes. To prevent possible injury, direct steam away from hands and face.

Do not overcook potatoes. They could dehydrate and catch fire, causing damage to your oven.

Cook meat and poultry thoroughlymeat to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F (71.1°C), and poultry to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 180°F (82.2°C). Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against food borne illness.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

SPECIAL NOTES ABOUT MICROWAVING

MICROWAVE-SAFE

COOKWARE

Make sure all cookware used in your microwave oven is suitable for microwaving. Most glass casserole, cooking dishes, measuring cups, custard cups, pottery or china dinnerware which do not have metallic trim or glaze with a metallic sheen can be used. Some cookware will be labeled “suitable for microwaving”.

If you use a meat thermometer while cooking, make sure it is safe for use in microwave ovens.

Do not use recycled paper products. Recycled paper towels, napkins, and waxed paper can contain metal flecks which may cause arcing or ignite. Paper products containing nylon or nylon filament should be avoided, as they may also ignite.

Not all plastic wrap is suitable for use in microwave ovens. Check the package for proper use.

Some styrofoam trays (like those that meat is packaged on) have a thin strip of metal embedded in the bottom. When microwaved, the metal can burn the floor of the oven, or ignite a paper towel.

Cookware may become hot because of heat transferred from the heated food. Pot holders may be needed to handle the cookware.

“Boilable” cooking pouches and tightly closed plastic bags should be slit, pierced, or vented as directed by package. If they are not, plastic could burst during or immediately after cooking, possibly resulting in injury. Also, plastic storage containers should be at least partially uncovered because they form a tight seal. When cooking with containers tightly covered with plastic wrap, remove covering carefully and direct steam away from hands and face.

• Paper towels, waxed paper, and plastic wrap can be used to cover dishes in order to retain moisture and prevent splattering. Be sure to vent plastic wrap so steam can escape.

How to test for a microwave-safe dish:

1.Place in the oven both the dish you are testing and a glass measuring cup filled with1 cup of water.

2.Set the measuring cup either in or next to the dish.

3.Microwave 1 minute on high power.

If the dish heats, it should not be used for microwaving. If the dish remains cool and only the water in the cup heats, then the dish is microwave-safe.

Use only foil as directed in this manual. TV dinners may be microwaved in foil trays less than 3/4” high; remove the top foil cover and return the tray to the box. When using foil in the microwave, keep the foil at least 1 inch away from the sides of the oven.

Plastic cookware designed for microwave cooking is very useful, but should be used carefully. Even microwave-safe plastic may not be as tolerant of overcooking conditions as are glass and ceramic materials and may soften or char if subjected to short periods of over-cooking. In longer exposure to over-cooking, the food and cookware could ignite. Follow these guidelines:

1.Use Microwave-safe plastics only and use them in strict compliance with the cookware manufacturer’s recommendations.

2.Do not microwave empty containers

3.Do not permit children to use plastic cookware without complete supervision.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING: Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock.

This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current.

This appliance is equipped with a power cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded.

Consult a qualified electrician or service technician if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.

If the outlet is a standard 2-prong wall outlet, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.

DO NOT under any circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord.

DO NOT use an adapter plug with this appliance.

DO NOT use an extension cord with this appliance. If the power cord is too short, have a qualified electrician or service technician install an outlet near the appliance.

For best operation, plug this appliance into its own electrical outlet to prevent flickering of lights, blowing of fuse, or tripping of circuit breaker.
