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.

–Improper use 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-resistant glass (Pyrex®)

microwave-safe plastics

microwave-safe paper plates

microwave-safe pottery, 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-resistant glass

non-microwave-safe plastics (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-safeareagoodchoicebecauseheat is 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. A microwave-safe thermometer 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.

Microwave Drawer cooking

Sensor Settings

Sharp's Sensor is a semi-conductor device that detects the vapor (moisture and humidity) emitted from the food as it heats. The sensor adjusts the cooking times and power levels for various foods and quantities.

Using Sensor Settings:

1After the Microwave Drawer is plugged in, wait 2 minutes before using any sensor setting.

2Be sure the exterior of the cooking container and the interior of the Microwave Drawer are dry. Wipe off any moisture with a dry cloth or paper towel.

3The sensor works with foods at normal storage temperature. For example, popcorn would be at room temperature.

4Any sensor selection can be programmed with More or Less Time Adjustment. See page 17.

5More or less food than the quantity listed in the charts should be cooked following the guidelines in any microwave cookbook.

6During the first part of sensor use, the food name will appear on the display. Do not open the Microwave Drawer or touch Stop/Clear during this part of the cycle. The measurement of vapor will be interrupted. If this occurs, an error message will appear. To continue cooking, touch the Stop/Clear pad and cook manually.

When the sensor detects the vapor emitted from the food, the remainder of cooking/reheating time will appear. The Microwave Drawer may be opened when the remaining time appears on the display. At this time, you may stir or season food, as desired.

7If the sensor does not detect vapor properly when popping popcorn, the oven will turn off, and the time

of day will be displayed. If the sensor does not detect vapor properly when cooking other foods, ERROR will be displayed, and the microwave will turn off.

8Check food temperature after cooking. If additional time is needed, continue to cook manually.

9Each food has a cooking hint. Touch the Custom Help pad when the HELP indicator is lighted in the display.

Microwave Drawer cooking

Covering Foods:

Some foods work best when covered. Use the cover recommended in the charts for these foods. You may refer to the hints by touching the Custom Help pad. See page 18.

1Casserole lid.

2Plastic wrap: Use plastic wrap recommended for microwave cooking. Cover dish loosely; allow approximately 1/2 inch to remain uncovered to allow steam to escape. Plastic wrap should not touch food.

3Wax paper: Cover dish completely; fold excess wrap under dish to secure. If dish is wider than paper, overlap two pieces at least one inch to cover.

Be careful when removing any covering to allow steam to escape away from you.

MANUAL DEFROST

If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on the DEFROST CHART or is above or below the limits in the AMOUNT column on the DEFROST CHART, you need to defrost manually.

You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously cooked, by using Power Level at 30%. Follow the exact 3-step procedure found under TO SET POWER LEVEL on page 11. Estimate defrosting time and press Power Level pad eight times for 30% power.

For either raw or previously cooked frozen food the rule of thumb is approximately 4 minutes per pound. For example,

defrost 4 minutes for 1 pound of frozen spaghetti sauce.

Always stop the oven periodically to remove or separate the portions that are defrosted. If food is not defrosted at the end of the estimated defrosting time, program the oven in 1 minute increments on Power Level 30% until totally defrosted.

When using plastic containers from the freezer, defrost only long enough to remove from the plastic in order to place in a microwave-safe dish.

Exterior

The outside surface is precoated metal and plastic. Clean the outside with mild soap and water; rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any type of household or abrasive cleaner.

Stainless Steel Surface (select models)

The exterior should be wiped often with a soft damp cloth and polished with a soft dry cloth to maintain its beauty. There are also a variety of products designed especially for cleaning and shining the stainless exterior of the oven. We recommend that the cleaner be applied to a soft cloth and then carefully used on the stainless exterior rather than sprayed directly on to it. Follow package directions carefully.

Front side of the Drawer

Wipe the window on both sides with a soft damp cloth to remove any spills or spatters. Metal parts will be easier to maintain if wiped frequently with a soft damp cloth. Avoid the use of spray and other harsh cleaners as they may stain, streak or dull the drawer surface.

Touch Control Panel

If desired, the touch pads may be deactivated before cleaning. See the Control Lock information on page 16 of this manual. Wipe the panel with a cloth dampened slightly with water only. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not scrub or use any sort of chemical cleaners. Close drawer and follow directions on page 16 for turning Control Lock off. Touch Stop/Clear.

Interior

Before cleaning the the Microwave Drawer, press and hold the Control Lock button for 3 seconds to lock the control pad and the automatic door mechanism. The drawer can be locked in either the open or closed position. The display will show LOCK ON . This will prevent the drawer from

Cleaning and Care

accidentally opening or closing during cleaning. After cleaning, press and hold the Control Lock button for 3 seconds to turn the lock off. The display will show

LOCK OFF .

Cleaning is easy because no heat is generated to the interior surfaces; therefore, there is no baking and setting of spills or spattering. To clean the interior surfaces, including drawer sealing surfaces, wipe with a soft damp cloth. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS OR SCOURING PADS. For heavier soil, use mild soap; wipe clean with a soft damp cloth. Do not use any chemical oven cleaners.

Microwave Drawer Guides

Remove the food crumbs from the Microwave Drawer guides. Wipe with a soft dry cloth in order to keep the Microwave Drawer opening and closing smoothly.

Waveguide Cover

ATTENTION The waveguide cover, located on the inside top of the Microwave Drawer area, is made from mica, so it requires special care. Keep the waveguide cover clean to assure good microwave performance. Carefully wipe with a soft damp cloth any food spatters from the surface of the cover immediately after they occur.  Built-up splashes may overheat and cause smoke or possibly catch fire. Do not remove the waveguide cover.

Odor Removal

Occasionally, a cooking odor may remain in the Microwave Drawer. To remove odor, combine 1 cup water, grated peel and juice of one lemon and several whole cloves in a 2-cup glass microwave-safe measuring cup. Boil for several minutes using 100% power. Leave in the Microwave Drawer until water cools. Wipe interior with a soft cloth.
