RADIO OR TV INTERFERENCE

Should there be any interference caused by the Microwave Drawer to your radio or TV, check that the Microwave Drawer is on a different electrical circuit, relocate the radio or TV as far away from the drawer as feasible or check position and signal of receiving antenna.

GROUNDING

INSTRUCTIONS

This appliance must be grounded. The Microwave Drawer is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. In the event of an electrical

short circuit, grounding reduces risk of electric shock by providing an

escape wire for the electric

current.

–Improperuse of the grounding plug can result in a risk of

electric shock. Do not use an extension cord. If the

If you have any questions about the grounding or electrical instructions, consult a qualified electrician or service person.

ABOUT your Microwave Drawer

ALWAYS have food in the Microwave Drawer when it is on to absorb the microwave energy.

The vent under the Microwave Drawer must not be blocked. During microwaving, steam may come from the right side of the vent.

When using the Microwave Drawer at power levels below 100%, you may hear the magnetron cycling on and off. It is normal for the exterior of the Microwave Drawer to be warm to the touch when cooking or reheating.

Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking. Room humidityandthemoistureinfoodwillinfluencetheamountof moisture that condenses in the Microwave Drawer. Generally, covered foods will not cause as much condensation as uncovered ones.

The Microwave Drawer is for food preparation only. It should not be used to dry clothes or newspapers.

Your Microwave Drawer is rated 1000 watts by using the IEC Test Procedure. In using recipes or package directions, check food a minute or two before the minimum time and add time accordingly.

When opening or closing the Microwave Drawer quickly, food in the Microwave Drawer may be spilled. To clean, please refer to the Cleaning and Care section on page 19.

A good microwave cookbook is a valuable asset. Check it for microwave cooking principles, techniques, hints and recipes. See page 21 for ordering the Sharp Carousel Microwave Cookbook.

ABOUT MICROWAVE COOKING

Arrangefoodcarefully.Placethickestareastowardsoutside 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.

Turnfoodsoveronceduringmicrowavingtospeedcooking of such foods as chicken and hamburgers. Large items like roasts must be turned over at least once.

Rearrangefoodssuchasmeatballshalfwaythroughcooking both from top to bottom and from right to left.

Add standing time. Remove food from Microwave Drawer 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 Drawer. 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®)

microwave-safeplastics

microwave-safepaper 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

DO NOT USE

metal pans and bakeware

dishes with metallic trim

non-heat-resistantglass

non-microwave-safeplastics (margarine tubs)

recycled paper products

brown paper bags

food storage bags

metal twist-ties

Information You Need To know

Should you wish to check if a dish is safe for microwaving, place the empty dish in the 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.

Lidsthataremicrowave-safeareagoodchoicebecauseheatis 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 Drawer:

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 Drawer.

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. Sharp is not responsible for any damage to the Microwave Drawer when accessories are used.

ABOUT CHILDREN AND THE MICROWAVE

Children below the age of 7 should use the Microwave Drawer with a supervising person very near to them. Between the ages of 7 and 12, the supervising person should be in the same room. The child must be able to reach the Microwave Drawer comfortably.

At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing on the Microwave Drawer.

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.

Donʼt assume that because a child has mastered one cooking skill he/she can cook everything.

Children need to learn that the Microwave Drawer is not a toy. See page 17 for Control Lock feature.

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 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.

About Foods

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 Drawer while it’s in use and check cooking progress frequently so that there is no chance of overcooking food.

NEVER use the Microwave Drawer 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. See page 19.
