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 grilling 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 shortcircuiting!

Take care when heating liquids!

When liquids (water, coffee, tea, milk, etc.) are nearly at boiling point inside the oven and are taken out suddenly, they may spurt out of their containers. DANGER OF INJURIES AND

BURNS!

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 grills 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.

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 authorised 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, authorised 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 authorised 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 channelled 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.

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 colour 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.
