Safety features
Door lock
Once a cooking process using the
microwave has begun, the door will re-
main locked until the end of the pro-
gramme.
You can cancel the door lock by press-
ing the Stop/C touch control. The pro-
gramme will then be interrupted.
Programming lock
The programming lock prevents func-
tions being entered unintentionally.
Safety cut-out
A process using a normal oven opera-
ting mode can be started without pro-
gramming in a time. To prevent over-
use and the consequent danger of fire,
the appliance switches off automati-
cally one hour after a process using a
selected operating mode and tempera-
ture has begun, or up to 9 hours
59 minutes after it was last used.
If the microwave is switched off in be-
tween using two microwave cooking
processes, there will be a delay of
about 30 seconds before the new set-
ting is accepted. Please therefore wait
a short while before starting the second
process.
Energy saving functions
Door contact switch
If the door is opened during a process
using the hot air fan and / or heating
element(s), a contact switch for the
door switches these off automatically. If
the door is opened during a process
which is using only a normal oven oper-
ating mode, the programme will con-
tinue to run again as soon as the door
is shut. If ’Stop/C’ was pressed before
opening the door, then ’Start’ must be
pressed for the programme to continue.
Making use of residual heat
With the Fan Heat (hot air) and Auto
Roast systems the heating shuts off
automatically with the door closed
when the current ambient temperature
is sufficient to finish cooking the food.
Whenever heat is lost, e.g. when the
door is opened, the heating will switch
on again automatically.
“Night time dimming” option
You can programme the appliance so
that the brightness of the display is
dimmed between the hours of 10 pm
and 6 am. (22.00 to 6.00 hours).
Optional oven interior lighting
You can turn off the oven interior light-
ing if you do not want it to remain on
during the entire cooking process. It
will then only light up for approx.
10 seconds after you have pressed the
Enter touch control.

Warning and Safety instructions
This appliance complies with all rele-
vant legal safety requirements. Im-
proper use of the appliance can,
however, present a risk of both per-
sonal injury and material damage.
Before installation and before using
the appliance for the first time, read
the operating instructions carefully.
They contain important notes on
safety, on the operation and care of
the appliance. This way you will
avoid the risk of accidents and dam-
age to the appliance.
Do not let children access the ap-
pliance or its controls. Supervise its
use by the elderly or infirm.
Keep these instructions in a safe
place and pass them on to any fu-
ture user.
Correct usage
The appliance is intended for do-
mestic use only: to cook food, and
in particular to defrost, re-heat, cook,
bake, roast, and to grill. Any other
usage is at the owner’s risk and could
be dangerous. The manufacturer can-
not be held responsible for damage
caused by improper use of the ap-
pliance.
Technical safety
If the connection cable is dam-
aged the new cable must be fitted
by a Miele service engineer or an auth-
orised agent.
Do not use the microwave function
of the appliance if
– the door is damaged or broken.
– the door hinges are loose.
– holes or cracks are visible in the cas-
ing, the door or the oven interior
walls.
Switching on with this type of dam-
age could result in microwaves no
longer being contained within the
oven, and presenting a hazard to the
user.
Never open the casing of the ap-
pliance.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components and mechanical parts
is highly dangerous to the user and can
cause operational faults.
Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply make sure that
the rating on the data plate corre-
sponds to the voltage and frequency of
the household supply.
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance, (for
example danger of overheating).
8
Page: 8
Warning and Safety instructions
The electrical safety of this ap-
pliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the appliance and an effective earthing
system, which complies with local and
national regulations. It is most import-
ant that this basic safety requirement is
tested by a qualified electrician. The
manufacturer cannot be held respon-
sible for the consequences of an inade-
quate earthing system.
This appliance must only be oper-
ated as a built-in appliance. This is
necessary to ensure that all electric
components are shielded.
Installation work and repairs may
only be carried out by suitably
competent persons to ensure safety.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous.
The appliance is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
when:
– it is switched off at the wall socket,
and the plug removed
– or the mains fuse is withdrawn
– or the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable)
Do not pull on the cable, only on the
plug.
Never poke an object, particularly
a metal object, through a grille or
between the door and the oven.
Use
General notes
It is important that the heat is
allowed to spread evenly throug-
hout the food being cooked.
This can be achieved by stirring and/or
turning the food, and by observing a
sufficiently long standing time, which
should be added to the time needed
for cooking, reheating or defrosting.
Always ensure that food is suffi-
ciently cooked or reheated. Many
factors will affect the overall cooking
time, including the size and amount of
food, its initial temperature, changes to
recipe and the shape and size of cook-
ing container. Some foods may contain
micro organisms which are only de-
stroyed by thorough cooking, therefore
when cooking or reheating foods, e.g.
poultry, it is particularly important that
food is fully cooked through (at more
than 70°C, for more than 10 minutes). If
in doubt select a longer cooking or re-
heating time.
Always remember that cooking
times in a microwave oven are
usually considerably shorter than with
traditional methods of food preparation.
Excessively long cooking times can
lead to food drying out and eventually
burning, or could even cause it to
catch fire.
There is also a danger of fire if bread-
crumbs, flowers, herbs, etc., are dried
in the microwave oven. Always ensure
that this type of procedure is super-
vised.

Warning and Safety instructions
Do not leave the oven unattended
when cooking with oils and fats as
these can be a fire hazard if allowed to
overheat.
If you see smoke rising from the
food in the oven keep the oven
door closed. Turn the oven selector
switch to “0", or remove the plug from
the socket.
Do not open the oven door until the
smoke has dispersed.
Never heat undiluted alcohol in the
microwave oven as this can easily
ignite.
Do not heat up unopened tins of
food in the oven as pressure will
build up in the tin and it will explode.
Food left in the oven to take ad-
vantage of residual heat should al-
ways be covered to avoid it drying out,
and to avoid a possible build-up of con-
densation which could adversely affect
the oven interior.
Try to avoid the interior walls being
splashed with food or liquids con-
taining salt. If it does happen wipe
these away thoroughly, to avoid corro-
sion on the stainless steel surface.
The glass dish and the rack take a
maximum load of 8 kg. Do not ex-
ceed this.
Wear oven gloves when removing the
glass tray from the oven. If the glass
tray has a heavy load, pull it only
slightly towards you, and then hold
firmly at the sides as you take it out.
Do not lean or sit on the open oven
door. This could damage the ap-
pliance. Take care in the region of the
hinges. An oven door can support a
maximum load of 8 kg.
When it is hot do not place the glass
tray on a cold surface, such as a tile
or granite worktop . It could break. Place
it on a pot rest or a wire rack.
Under no circumstances use a
steam cleaner to clean this ap-
pliance. Pressurised steam could give
rise to a short circuit, or cause perma-
nent damage to the surface and to
components, for which the manufac-
turer of the oven cannot accept any re-
sponsibility.
Microwave mode
Never operate the oven without
any absorbing material such as
food or liquid inside, unless specifically
allowed in the manufacturer’s literature.
Always check the temperature of
the actual food itself after taking it
out of the oven. Do not be misled by
the temperature of the container. In
particular when preparing food for
babies, children, and the elderly or
infirm, it is essential to check the
temperature of the food or liquid it-
self, after stirring and before serving.
The temperature of the container does
not necessarily give a correct indica-
tion of the temperature of the food or liq-
uid in it.
10
Page: 10
Warning and Safety instructions
Never cook or reheat food or
liquids in sealed containers or
bottles. With baby bottles the screw top
and teat must be removed. Otherwise
pressure builds up which can cause
the bottle or container to explode pos-
ing a severe risk of injury.
When heating liquids, the boiling
rod provided should be placed
into the container.
When heating, and especially reheating
liquids, milk, sauces etc., in the micro-
wave oven, the boiling point of the liq-
uid may be reached without the produc-
tion of typical bubbles. The liquid does
not boil evenly throughout. This so-
called ’boiling delay’ can cause a sud-
den build up of bubbles, when the con-
tainer is shaken on removal from the
oven. This can lead to the liquid boiling
over suddenly and explosively. There is
a danger of burning. The formation of
bubbles can be so strong that the
pressure forces the oven door open.
The user could be injured and the ap-
pliance damaged.
The boiling rod ensures that the liquid
boils evenly and that bubbles form at
an early stage during the operation.
Do not use any containers or cut-
lery made from or containing met-
al, aluminium foil, lead crystal glass-
ware, temperature-sensitive plastics,
wooden utensils or cutlery, metal clips
or wire ties. Such items could be dam-
aged, or cause a fire hazard.
The rack supplied with the appliance is
designed to be compatible with micro-
waves, and can therefore be used with
the combined microwave and browning
functions.
The rack gets hot when operating
either the microwave function or
the browning element, or both. There is
a danger of burning.
Eggs can only be cooked in their
shells in the microwave oven in a
specially designed egg-boiling device.
Similarly, hard-boiled eggs should not
be reheated in the microwave oven as
this may lead to the eggs bursting,
even once they have been removed
from the oven.
Eggs can be cooked without their
shells in the microwave oven only if
the yolk membrane has been punc-
tured several times first. The pressure
would otherwise cause the egg yolk to
explode.
Do not reheat food in the oven in
heat-retaining bags intended for
normal ovens.
These heat-retaining bags usually con-
tain a thin layer of aluminium foil which
reflects microwaves. This reflected en-
ergy can, in turn, cause the outer
paper covering to become so hot that it
ignites.
11
Page: 11
Warning and Safety instructions
Food with a thick skin or peel,
such as tomatoes, sausages,
jacket potatoes, aubergines, should be
pierced or cut in several places to
allow steam to escape and prevent the
food from bursting.
Ovenproof earthenware can retain
a considerable amount of mois-
ture. Earthenware and porcelain con-
tainers with hollow handles and lid
knobs must only be used in this oven if
they have vent holes, which allow the
moisture to escape. Without vent holes
there can be a pressure build-up, caus-
ing the container to crack or shatter,
dangerously.
Normal oven functions:
Fan Heat, Auto Roast, Grill, Fan Grill
Caution - Danger of burning
High temperatures arise when the
oven is being used as a normal
oven.
Great care should be taken to en-
sure that small children do not
touch the oven when it is being used.
External parts of the oven such as door
glass, vents and the facia panel can
become quite hot.
Wearing heat-resistant oven gloves
is recommended when placing
food in the oven, turning it or removing
it.
When the Grill or Fan Grill function has
been chosen, either solo or in a combi-
nation programme the grill element
becomes very hot and there is a
danger of burning.
Wait until the grill element has
cooled down before lowering it for
cleaning.
Do not use force to pull it down as
this can cause the element to
break.
Do not use the oven to heat up the
room. Due to the high tempera-
tures radiated, objects left near the
oven could catch fire.
12
Page: 12
Warning and Safety instructions
When using kitchen appliances
connected to sockets near the
oven ensure that the cable cannot get
trapped in a hot oven door, which
could melt the cable insulation and be
dangerous.
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infesta-
tion by cockroaches or other vermin,
pay particular attention to keeping the
appliance and its surroundings in a
clean condition at all times.
Any damage which might be caused
by cockroaches or other vermin will not
be covered by the appliance guarantee.
Disposal of your old machine
Before discarding an old machine
switch off and disconnect it from
the power supply. Cut off and render
any plug useless.
Cut off the cable directly behind the ma-
chine to prevent misuse.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by non-
compliance with safety instructions.
13

Before using for the first time
Wipe out the oven interior with hot
water and washing up liquid. Dry
using a soft cloth.
Do not shut the oven door until the
interior is completely dry, to avoid
odours and the possibility of corro-
sion developing.
Wash the accessories.
With new appliances there is usually a
smell during the first use. It is dispelled
more quickly by using a high tempera-
ture as follows:
Run the oven on the Fan Heat D set-
ting for at least an hour.
Select Fan Heat D with the oven
function selector.
Enter the highest possible tempera-
ture with the + touch control.
Confirm by pressing Enter.
Enter a time (at least 1 hour) with the
+ touch control.
Press the Start touch control.
Ensure the room is well ventilated
during this process.

Operating modes
Microwave Mode h
When using the microwave mode, food
is cooked, re-heated or defrosted in a
short time.
Functional description
This oven is equipped with two magne-
trons b. These convert electrical en-
ergy into microwaves.
There are two stirrer fans c, one above
the oven ceiling and the other under
the oven floor. These two interior sur-
faces can be penetrated by micro-
waves. The fans distribute the micro-
waves from above and below evenly
throughout the oven interior, rebound-
ing off the walls to reach and enter the
food.
This contributes to the food being
heated through evenly, also when food
is being cooked on two levels, e.g. on
the floor of the oven and on the lower
shelf level.
In order for microwaves to reach the
food, they must be able to penetrate
the cooking utensil being used.
Microwaves can penetrate porcelain,
glass, cardboard and plastics but not
metal. Do not, therefore, use utensils
made of metal, or which contain metal,
for example in the form of gold or silver
trim. The metal reflects the microwaves
and this could lead to the creation of
sparks. The microwaves cannot be ab-
sorbed.
15
Page: 15
Operating modes
Microwaves pass through a suitable
container and find their way directly
into the foodstuff.
All foodstuffs contain moisture mole-
cules which, when subjected to micro-
wave energy, start to oscillate 2.5 thou-
sand million times a second. The
friction caused by this vibration creates
heat, which first starts developing
around the outside of the foodstuff and
then slowly penetrates towards the
centre. The moisture, fat and sugar con-
tent of food will affect the speed at
which it is cooked.
As heat is produced directly in the food,
– food can generally be cooked with-
out adding much liquid or cooking oil
– cooking, reheating and defrosting in
a microwave oven is quicker than
using normal oven methods
– nutrients, such as vitamins and mine-
rals, are retained
– colour, texture and taste of food are
not impaired
– the surface temperature stays cool
enough to avoid browning.
Normal oven operating sys-
tems
In Miele ovens these include Fan Heat,
Auto Roast, Grill and Fan Grill.
With these normal oven methods food
is cooked and browned.
Fan Heat D
This method works by the circulation of
hot air.
A fan situated on the back wall sucks in
the air, heats it over a ring element and
blows the heated air through the care-
fully spaced openings in the back
panel.
As the heat is quickly transferred to the
food, it is not usually necessary to pre-
heat the oven, except when roasting
sirloin.
With Fan Heat food can be baked or
roasted at both levels at the same time.
Auto Roast E
After the selected temperature is en-
tered, the oven heats initially to a pre-
set high temperature which seals the
meat to keep it succulent and tasty.
The oven temperature is then automati-
cally returned to the temperature set-
ting selected.
When roasting, you are strongly
recommended to cover the food.
Not only does this help retain all the
juices, but will also make cleaning
the oven easier afterwards.
16
Page: 16
Operating modes
Grill J
As the grill element needs to radiate a
high heat in order to cook the food, it
will take several minutes after being
switched on for the element to glow red
hot and so produce sufficient infra-red
heat for grilling.
Fan Grill I
The hot air from the grill is distributed
by the fan in the rear of the oven evenly
over all the food being grilled. This en-
ables a lower temperature to be se-
lected than for normal oven grilling.
Programmes
Combination programmes
By using the combination programmes
you can quickly reheat and cook food
while browning it at the same time.
You can combine the microwave opera-
ting mode with each of the normal oven
modes.
The Fan Heat (hot air) mode is best
suited for combining with the micro-
wave since the heat reaches the
baked, roasted or cooked food immedi-
ately, maximising the time and energy
saved.
In general when using the modes in
combination, you should set the micro-
wave power level for baking not higher
than 150 W, and for cooking, roasting
and grilling not higher than 450 W.
Automatic programmes
The microwave’s automatic pro-
grammes can be used to cook, warm
up or defrost food. The relevant power
setting and time are selected automati-
cally. You only need to enter the food
group and the weight.
“Solo” refers to one operating mode in
contrast to “Combination programme”
which can include more than one oper-
ating mode.
17

Suitable containers for microwave ovens
Microwaves
– are reflected by metal.
– pass through glass and chinaware...
– and are absorbed by food.
Metal
When working in microwave mode
metal containers, aluminium foil and
metal cutlery, as well as china with
metallic decor (e.g. gold trim, co-
balt blue), must not be placed in the
microwave oven. The metal reflects
the microwaves and so hinders the
cooking process.
We recommend when defrosting and
cooking pre-cooked meals packed in
metal containers, the food should be
removed from the foil container and
placed in a container suitable for use in
a microwave oven.
Microwaves cannot penetrate alumi-
nium foil, so the food can only be
heated from the top. Re-heating / cook-
ing will take longer and be less even
than if the food was transferred to a
dish suitable for a microwave oven.
Sparks and arcing may occur when
using metal containers.
Exceptions:
– Small pieces of aluminium foil
For even defrosting and to avoid over-
cooking unevenly shaped cuts of meat,
poultry or fish, small quantities of alumi-
nium foil may be used to mask wing-
tips or other thin parts for the last few
minutes of the process. Important:
Make sure that the aluminium foil is at
least 2 cm from the oven walls at all
times. It must not touch the walls.
– Metal meat skewers or clamps
Metal skewers and clamps should only
be used if they are very small in com-
parison to the size of the cut of meat.

Suitable containers for microwave ovens
The microwave oven rack is suitable
for use in a microwave oven.
Do not place it on the oven floor!
The rack can get hot.
Glassware
Heat-resistant glass is ideal for use in
the microwave oven.
Crystal glass contains lead which
could cause the glass to crack.
Glass dishes with a milled rim are
subject to the same risk. Both are
unsuitable for use.
Porcelain (chinaware)
Porcelain (chinaware) is suitable.
Do not use porcelain with gold or sil-
ver edging or items with hollow
knobs or handles, as insufficient
ventilation may cause pressure.
Earthenware
Decorated earthenware is only suit-
able if the decoration is beneath an
all-over glaze. Earthenware can get
very hot, and may crack.
Glazes and colours
Some glazes and colours contain
metal.
This makes them unsuitable for use in a
microwave oven.
Plastics
Plastic containers must only be
used for microwave mode alone
and not in normal oven mode.
Plastics must be heat-resistant to a
minimum of 180 °C.
Otherwise the plastic may melt and
fuse with the food.
Special plastic utensils, designed for
use in microwave ovens are available
from most department and hardware
stores. Melamine ware is not suitable
as it absorbs energy and heats up.
When purchasing plasticware, make
sure that it is suitable for use in a micro-
wave oven.
Disposable containers, such as trays
made from polystyrene, can only be
used for very short timed warming and
reheating of food.
Plastic boiling bags can be used for
cooking and reheating. They should
be pierced beforehand so that
steam can escape.
This prevents a build-up of pressure
and reduces the risk of the bag bur-
sting.
Roasting bags and -tubes can be used.
Roasting tubes should be about 40 cm
longer and roasting bags about 20 cm
longer than the food being roasted,
and carefully tied with string. Turn the
ends over and secure them. Holes
should be made according to the manu-
facturer’s instructions.

Suitable containers for microwave ovens
Do not use metal clips or wire ties,
even if bound by paper.
There is a danger that they will ignite
when heated.
Wood
Wooden dishes are not suitable.
Moisture contained in the wood evap-
orates when exposed to microwave en-
ergy, causing the wood to dry and
crack.
Disposable containers
Only those plastic disposable con-
tainers which are specified by the pro-
ducer as suitable for use in a micro-
wave oven may be used.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when re-heating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of plas-
tic paper or other inflammable ma-
terial.
Disposable containers are not always
recyclable or degradable.
Testing dishes for their suitability
If in doubt as to whether glass, earthen-
ware or porcelain plates or dishes are
suitable for use in a microwave oven, a
simple test can be performed:
Place the item you wish to test in the
centre of the oven, fill a suitable
glass with water and also place this
in the oven.
Shut the door.
Select Microwave mode h with the
function selector.
Select the highest microwave power
setting (1200 W) with the + control.
Confirm by pressing “Enter”.
Enter a time of 30 seconds with the
+ touch control.
Press the Start control.
Enter

Suitable containers for microwave ovens
If a crackling noise is heard accom-
panied by sparks during the test,
switch off the appliance immedi-
ately. Turn the function selector
switch to the “0" position.
The water in the glass should be
warm, but the dish cool. If the dish
is very hot and the water is cold, it
would be unwise to use the dish.
Any crockery which causes this re-
action, or which is hot on removal is
unsuitable for use in the microwave
oven.
Note: Although some ovenproof earth-
enware can be used in a microwave
oven, it may contain a considerable
amount of moisture, causing it to
become hot during use. It is normally
advisable to avoid using it in a micro-
wave oven.
If any doubt exists about the suita-
bility of containers, please contact
the maker.
This test cannot be used to check
whether items with hollow knobs or
handles are suitable for use in a micro-
wave oven.
A cover
– prevents too much steam escaping,
especially when cooking foodstuffs
which need longer to cook, such as
potatoes,
– shortens and evens out the cooking
process,
– prevents food from drying out,
– prevents any loss of aroma.
Always use lids or covers made of
microwave-safe glass or plastic, or use
a clingfilm recommended for use in a
microwave oven, (pierce as instructed
by the producer).
Sealed glass containers, such as
jars of food, must be opened before
they are placed in the oven.
Do not use a lid if
– cooking meals which are to be given
a crisp topping.
– using a combination programme.

Defrosting
Defrost with
– the automatic defrosting
programme N,
– or the microwave h.
We recommend the Automatic Defrost
programme for defrosting meat,
poultry, fish, fruit, bread, soup, plated
meals, casseroles, vegetables.
This programme is also the best for de-
frosting dishes containing other ingre-
dients besides meat, poultry or fish, e.g
goulash, casseroles, soups etc. Select
“Casseroles” from the food groups.
When using the automatic defrost pro-
gramme select “Bread” from the food
groups for defrosting cakes which have
a moist topping, such as fruit or cream
cheese and also for defrosting bread
rolls.
We recommend using the microwave
mode for defrosting delicate foods.
Select a microwave power setting
– of 150 W
for defrosting quite delicate food-
stuffs, e.g. milk, cake etc.
– of 80 W
for defrosting very delicate food-
stuffs, e.g. cream, butter, gateau and
cheese.
See the table on the following page for
defrosting times.
Remove the food from its packaging
and place it in a microwave-safe dish.
Place it in the middle of the oven floor.
If you are defrosting a large quantity,
e.g. 2 kg of fish, you can also use the
glass tray as a container. Place the
glass tray on the oven floor.
Turn, divide up or stir the food halfway
through the defrosting time. The auto-
matic programme has an audible tone
which sounds as a reminder.
After defrosting
Allow the food to stand at room tem-
perature long enough to allow the tem-
perature to spread evenly through the
food.

Re-heating
Reheat with
– the automatic programme for reheat-
ing P,
– the microwave h.
We recommend the Automatic Reheat
programme for reheating meat,
poultry, fish, soup, plated meals, cas-
seroles and vegetables.
Use the Microwave mode to reheat
foodstuffs which are unsuitable for the
automatic programme.
Select the following microwave power
settings to reheat food
– drinks 1200 W,
– food 850 W or 600 W
– * food for babies 450 W.
* We do not recommend heating or
reheating foods or drinks for babies
or young children in the microwave
oven. Any decision to do this is the
responsibility of the user, and
should only be done with the utmost
care. Pasteurised or sterilised
cooked food should be gently
heated at 450 Watt, and tasted so
that it is not too hot for a baby’s pal-
ate before serving. Other food or
drink when reheated should be
heated to a high temperature and
allowed to cool to a suitable heat for
eating. For made-up milk follow the
maker’s instructions.
Always use a lid or cover for reheating
food, except when a drier finish is
needed, e.g. breaded poultry / meat.
Always remove the lids from jars,
especially jars of baby food.
Remove the rubber teat and seal
top before warming baby bottles.
When re-heating liquids place the
boiling rod supplied with the ma-
chine into the cup or glass.
Never re-heat hard boiled eggs in a
microwave oven, even without the
shell. The eggs can burst.
The time required depends largely on
the nature and initial temperature of the
food and the amount to be cooked.
Food taken straight from the fridge re-
quires for example longer to re-heat
than food stored at room temperature.
Always ensure that the food is ade-
quately heated.
If in any doubt that a sufficiently high
temperature has been reached, con-
tinue re-heating for a little longer.
Stir or turn food from time to time dur-
ing cooking. Stir the food from the out-
side towards the middle, as food heats
more quickly from the outside. With the
automatic programme an audible tone
sounds as a reminder.
47
Page: 47
Re-heating
Heating on two levels
Because of the way that microwaves
are introduced from top and bottom it is
possible to reheat food on two levels at
the same time.
Place dishes on the oven floor and
on the glass tray. Insert the glass
tray on the upper level supports.
You can arrange
– three plates (Ø 20 cm) in a triangle,
two plates (Ø 22 cm) side by side,
or two plates (Ø 24.5 cm) diagonally
on the oven floor,
– two plates (Ø 20 cm) side by side, or
two plates (Ø 22 cm) diagonally on
the glass tray.
After re-heating
Be careful when removing a dish
from the oven. It may be hot.
Although heat is not normally produced
in the container itself by the micro-
waves, (apart from stoneware and simi-
lar dishes), heat transfer from the food
to the container may be considerable,
making the container itself hot.
Allow food to stand for a few minutes
once a programme has ended to allow
heat to be distributed evenly.
After reheating food, especially food for
babies and small children, stir the food
or shake the container and check that
the temperature does not pose any
danger. Double check after it has been
left to stand.

Cooking
The following modes are suitable for
cooking
– the Automatic-Programme,
Cooking Q
– the microwave mode h,
– the oven mode Fan Heat D
– the combination programme
Microwave + Fan Heat h + D,
– the combination programme
Microwave + Grill h + J
The Automatic-Programme is suitable
for cooking meat and poultry which are
not required to be crisped or browned,
fish, soups, casseroles and vegetables.
The Microwave mode is suitable for
cooking noodles, etc, pasta, rice and
semolina pudding.
First select 850 W and then turn down
to 450 W to continue cooking, or 150 W
for simmering.
Fan Heat is recommended for every-
day cooking, e.g. cakes, pastry, me-
ringues, pizza, potatoes and other
vegetables.
Select a Combination programme, if
you want a shorter cooking time and a
browned finish.
The Microwave + Grill Combination
programme is very suitable for cook-
ing and crisping or browning.
Microwave
Place the food in a microwave-safe
dish and cover.
Place the dish on the oven floor.
Add a little water to vegetables which
have been kept stored. Vegetable cook-
ing times depend on the texture of the
vegetable. Fresh vegetables contain
water and usually cook more quickly.
Stir and turn food at least once during
cooking. With the automatic pro-
gramme an audible tone sounds as a
reminder.
Food with skin or peel, such as toma-
toes, some types of sausage, jacket po-
tatoes and aubergines, should be
pricked or the skin cut several times be-
fore to prevent food from bursting.
Boiling eggs in the microwave oven is
only possible with a special egg-boiling
device, available from specialist shops.
Otherwise the eggs will burst. Eggs
can only be cooked in a microwave
oven out of their shells in a glass dish.
The yolk must be pricked several times
first with a sharp object.
