Keep these instructions in a safe
place and ensure that new users are
familiar with the content. Pass them
on to any future owner.
Correct application
~ The microwave combination oven is
intended for domestic use only: to cook
food, and in particular to defrost,
reheat, cook, bake, roast and to grill.
Any other usage is at the owner's risk
and could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
damage resulting from incorrect or
improper use or operation.
~ Never use the appliance to store or
dry items which could ignite easily.
Moisture evaporates. Fire hazard.
~ 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
are supervised whilst using it, or have
been shown how to use it correctly by a
person responsible for their safety.
Safety with children
~ Keep children away from the
microwave combination oven at all
times. It is not a toy! To avoid the risk of
injury do not allow them to play with it or
to play with the controls. Supervise
children whilst you are using it.
~ Older children may only use the
microwave combination oven when its
operation has been clearly explained to
them and they are able to use it safely,
recognising the dangers of misuse.
~ Great care should be taken to
ensure that small children do not touch
the appliance when it is being used.

Technical safety
~ Installation, maintenance and
repairs should only be carried out by a
suitably qualified and competent
person in accordance with local and
national safety regulations. Repairs and
other work by unqualified persons
could be dangerous and the
manufacturer will not be held liable.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
appliance until after installation,
maintenance or repair work has been
carried out.
~ Before installation, check the
appliance for visible signs of damage.
Do not install or attempt to use a
damaged appliance. Danger of injury.
~ Do not use the microwave function
of the appliance if
– the door is warped,
– the door hinges are loose,
– holes or cracks are visible in the
casing, the door, the door seal or the
oven interior walls.
Operating the appliance with this type
of damage will result in microwave
leakage and present a hazard to the
user.
~ The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it
and an effective earthing system which
complies with current local and national
safety regulations. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
present and tested regularly, and
where there is any doubt, the
household wiring system should be
inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
~ Before connecting the appliance,
make sure that the connection data on
the data plate (voltage and connected
load) match the mains electricity
supply. This data must correspond in
order to avoid the risk of damage to the
appliance. Consult a competent person
if in doubt.
~ Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by an extension
lead or a multi-socket unit. These do
not guarantee the required safety of the
appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
~ For safety reasons, this appliance
may only be used after it has been built
in.
~ Never open the casing of the
appliance.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous to the user and can
cause operational faults.
~ While the appliance is under
guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a service technician
authorised by the manufacturer.
Otherwise the guarantee will be
invalidated.
Warning and Safety instructions

Page: 6
~ During installation, maintenance and
repair work, the appliance must be
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply. It is only completely isolated
from the electricity supply when:
– the mains fuse is disconnected,
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable),
– or it has been switched off at the
isolator or at the wall socket and the
plug has been withdrawn.
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. The manufacturer can only
guarantee the safety of the appliance
when Miele replacement parts are
used.
~ If the connection cable is damaged,
it must be replaced by a Miele
approved service technician.
~ This appliance may only be used in
mobile installations such as ships if a
risk assessment of the installation has
been carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
~ In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation 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 may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the guarantee.
Correct use
Caution. Danger of burning.
The oven interior will become very
hot when operating with functions
which do not use microwave power
and also combination programmes
which do use microwave power.
~ Use oven gloves when placing food
in the oven, turning or removing it and
when adjusting oven shelves etc. in a
hot oven.
Take great care not to come in contact
with the upper heating / grill element
when using the Grill Y, Fan plus U,
Fan grill \, Microwave+Grill b,
Microwave+Fan grill M functions as it
becomes extremely hot.
~ Plastic containers must only be used
with Microwave solo. These melt at high
temperatures, and if used with any
other function could damage the
appliance.
~ Always ensure that food is sufficiently
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 cooking container.
Some foods may contain
micro-organisms which are only
destroyed by thorough cooking,
therefore when cooking or re-heating
foods, e.g. poultry, it is particularly
important that food is fully cooked
through (at temperatures of over 70°C
for more than 10 minutes). If in doubt,
select a longer cooking or reheating
time.
Warning and Safety instructions
7
Page: 7
It is important that the heat is allowed to
spread evenly throughout 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.
~ Please be aware that using
microwave power will shorten cooking,
reheating and defrosting times
considerably compared to when using
functions without microwave power.
Make sure that you keep to the
recommended grilling times when
using the Grill Y and Fan grill\
functions.
However, excessively long cooking
times can lead to food drying out and
burning or could even cause the food
to catch fire.
– Do not use the microwave function to
dry breadcrumbs, flowers, herbs,
grain etc.
– Do not use any functions which use
to heat and crisp up rolls or bread, or
to dry flowers, herbs, grain etc.
Use the Fan plus U function for this
type of procedure and do not leave the
oven unattended.
~ Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil or
fats, as these are a fire hazard if
allowed to overheat.
~ Never heat undiluted alcohol in the
microwave, as this can easily ignite.
If using alcohol in your recipes, please
be aware that high temperatures can
cause the alcohol to vaporise and even
to ignite on the hot heating elements.
Alcohol should be burnt off before the
dish is placed in the oven to avoid this
danger.
~ Do not heat up unopened tins or jars
of food in the oven. Pressure can build
up and they may explode, resulting in
injury or damage.
~ If smoke occurs in the oven, to avoid
fuelling any flame do not open the door.
Cancel the cooking process by
switching the appliance off, switch off
at the socket and remove the plug. Do
not open the oven door until the smoke
has dispersed.
Warning and Safety instructions

~ Moisture in food could lead to
corrosion in the oven interior and
corrosion damage of the control panel,
worktop or housing unit.
– Always cover food when using the
Microwave (Solo) function. After food
has been brought to the boil,
continue cooking it at a lower setting
to avoid excess steam escaping.
– If you wish to complete a cooking
process using the residual heat in
the oven, do not switch the
appliance off. Leave the function
selector at the position set and turn
the temperature selector to the
lowest setting.
– Cover any food which is left in the
oven to be kept hot, as this will
prevent it from drying out.
~ Do not use the appliance to heat up
the room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects left near the oven
could catch fire.
~ Do not lean or sit on an open door,
or place heavy items on it. This could
damage the appliance. The door can
support a maximum load of 8 kg.
~ Do not use full power to warm empty
dishes or to dry out herbs. Do not use
the appliance without food, or if it is
incorrectly loaded.
~ Do not use the microwave function
to heat up cushions or pads filled with
cherry kernels, wheat grain, lavender or
gel, such as those used in
aromatherapy. These pads can ignite
when heated even after they have been
removed from the appliance.
~ Exercise caution when cooking or
reheating food with a high sugar
content, e.g. Christmas pudding. If
heated for too long the sugar may
caramelise or ignite. Always ensure that
this type of procedure is supervised.
~ The microwave combination oven is
not suitable for cleaning or disinfecting
items.
Items can get extremely hot and there
is a danger of burning when the item is
removed.
~ Before serving, remember to allow a
sufficient standing time and then
always check the temperature of the
food after taking it out of the oven. The
temperature of the container is not an
indication of the temperature of the
food or liquid in it.
This is particularly important when
preparing food for babies, children,
and the elderly or infirm. Shake or stir
baby milk and food thoroughly after
heating, and try it for temperature to
ensure that it will not scald the baby.
When heating food and drinks,
remember that the heat is created in
the food itself, and that the container
will normally be cooler. The dish is only
warmed by the heat of the food.
Warning and Safety instructions

~ Never cook or reheat food or liquids
in sealed containers, jars or bottles.
With baby bottles, the screw top and
teat must be loosened. Otherwise
pressure builds up which can cause
the bottle or container to explode,
posing a severe risk of injury.
~ When heating liquids using
microwave power, the boiling rod
provided should always be placed into
the container.
When heating liquids, milk, sauces etc,
using microwave power without the
boiling rod, the boiling point of the
liquid may be reached without the
production of typical bubbles. The
liquid does not boil evenly throughout.
This so-called 'boiling delay' can cause
a sudden build up of bubbles when the
container is removed from the oven or
shaken. This can lead to the liquid
boiling over suddenly and explosively.
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 appliance damaged.
The boiling rod ensures that the liquid
boils evenly and that bubbles form at
an early stage during the operation.
~ Make sure that you only use
microwave safe containers when using
the Microwave (Solo) function or a
combination programme which uses
microwave power. Observe the
instructions given in "Suitable
containers for microwave ovens".
~ Ovenproof earthenware can retain a
considerable amount of moisture.
Earthenware and porcelain containers
with hollow handles and lid knobs must
only be used with microwave power if
they have vent holes, which allow the
moisture to escape. Without vent holes
there can be a pressure build-up,
causing the container to crack or
shatter, with the danger of injury.
~ Do not reheat food in the oven in
heat-retaining bags which are intended
for use in normal ovens. These
heat-retaining bags usually contain a
thin layer of aluminium foil which
reflects microwaves. This reflected
energy can, in turn, cause the outer
paper covering to become so hot that it
ignites.

~ Do not leave the oven unattended
when reheating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of plastic,
paper or other inflammable materials.
Before using single-use containers
make sure they are suitable for use in
microwave ovens. See "Suitable
containers for microwave ovens -
Plastics".
~ Eggs can only be cooked in their
shells using microwave heat in a
specially designed egg-boiling device
available from specialist shops.
Similarly, hard-boiled eggs should not
be reheated using microwave power as
this may lead to the eggs exploding,
even after they have been taken out of
the oven.
~ Eggs can be cooked without their
shells using microwave power only if
the yolk membrane has been
punctured several times first. The
pressure could otherwise cause the
egg yolk to explode. Danger of inury.
~ Food with a thick skin or peel, such
as tomatoes, sausages, jacket potatoes
and aubergines, should be pierced or
cut in several places to allow steam to
escape and prevent the food from
bursting.
~ To check food temperature, first
interrupt the cooking process. Only use
a thermometer specifically approved for
food use to measure the temperature of
the food. Never use a thermometer
containing mercury or liquid, as these
are not suitable for use with very high
temperatures and will break very easily.
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele spare parts
and accessories with this appliance. If
spare parts or accessories from other
manufacturers are used, this will
invalidate the guarantee, and Miele
cannot accept liability.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

Always use the glass tray when
using the Microwave (Solo) function.
Do not place items weighing more
than 8 kg on it.
Do not place the hot glass tray on a
cold surface, such as a tiled or
granite worktop.
The glass tray could get damaged.
Use a suitable heat-resistant mat or
pot rest.
Rack with non-tip safety notches
The rack is designed to be compatible
with microwaves and so can be used
with programmes which use microwave
power (combination programmes).
Do not place the rack directly on the
floor of the oven and do not use it
with the Microwave (Solo) function.
This could cause arcing which could
damage the oven.
Do not place items weighing more
than 8 kg on the rack.
The rack gets hot when used with
combination programmes which use
the microwave function. Danger of
burning.
The rack has non-tip safety notches

Safety features Use
System lock The system lock prevents the appliance being used
by children, for example.
Safety cut-out A function without microwave can be started
without selecting a cooking duration. To prevent
over-use and the consequent danger of fire, the
appliance switches off automatically after a certain
length of time. This can be between 1 hour and 10
hours, depending on the function and temperature
chosen.
If a combination programme is followed in quick
succession by another combination programme, the
magnetron (which produces the microwaves) cannot
be switched on again until after approx. 10 seconds
have elapsed. For this reason you will need to wait a
short while before starting the second programme.
Energy saving function Use
Door contact switch If the door is opened during a programme that is not
using microwaves, the heat in the oven automatically
switches off. The fans continue to operate. As soon
as the door is closed again, the programme will
continue.
However, if the door is opened during a
combination programme, the cooling fan will
switch off and the programme must be started again
after you have closed the door.
"Switch off time-of-day
display" function
The standard factory default setting can be changed
so that the time of day continues to run unseen in
the background. The display remains dark. The time
of day display is switched on and is visible in the
display when the appliance is operated (see
"Settings - Time of day display").

_ Microwave
In a microwave oven there is a
high-frequency tube called a
magnetron. This converts electrical
energy into microwaves. These
microwaves are distributed evenly
throughout the oven interior and
rebound off the metal sides of the oven
interior to reach the food from all sides.
In order for microwaves to reach the
food, they must be able to penetrate
the cooking container being used (see
"Suitable containers for microwave
ovens"). Microwaves pass through a
suitable container and find their way
directly into the food.
All food contains moisture molecules
which when subjected to microwave
energy start to oscillate vigorously. The
friction caused caused by this vibration
creates heat which first starts
developing around the outside of the
food and then slowly penetrates
towards the centre. The moisture, fat
and sugar content of food will affect the
speed at which it is cooked.
As heat is produced directly in the
food,
– food can generally be cooked
without adding much liquid or
cooking oil.
– cooking, reheating and defrosting is
much quicker than when using a
function which does not use
microwave energy.
– nutrients, such as vitamins and
minerals, are generally retained.
– the colour, texture and taste of food
are not impaired.
Power level
The following power levels can be
selected:
80 W, 150 W, 300 W, 450 W, 600 W,
850 W, 1000 W
Microwaves stop being produced as
soon as the cooking process is
interrupted or the appliance door is
opened.
Functions

Functions which do not use
microwave energy
U Fan plus
This system works by the circulation of
heated air. As the heated air reaches
the food straight away, temperatures
are lower than those needed for
"Conventional heat" where the heat is
directed at the food from above and
below.
When using Fan plus you can cook on
two different levels at the same time.
Y Grill
This function can be used for grilling
thin cuts and for browning cooked
dishes, e.g. pasta bakes. The grill is
ready for use when it glows red.
P Defrost
The air in the oven is kept at room
temperature and circulated by the fan
to gently defrost frozen food.
\ Fan grill
Temperatures used for Fan grill are
lower than those used with the Grill
function.
For grilling thick cuts, e.g. rolled meat,
poultry.
S Rapid heat-up
This function heats up the appliance
quickly to the temperature required.
The temperature indicator light will go
out when the pre-selected temperature
has been reached. The function
selector must then be turned to the
function you wish to use for cooking.
Functions which use
microwave energy
(Combination programmes)
b Microwave+Grill
a Microwave+Fan plus
M Microwave+Fan grill
The combination programmes enable
food to be reheated and cooked
quickly with even browning results.
The Microwave+Fan plus combination
programme is the most effective
because the heat reaches the food im-
mediately giving the greatest savings in
both time and energy.
In general when using the combination
programmes, you should not set the
microwave power level higher than
150 W for baking, and not higher than
300 W for cooking, roasting and grilling.

Cleaning and heating up for
the first time
Remove any protective foil from the
front of the appliance.
See "Cleaning and care" for more
information.
Before using the appliance for the first
time
– take all accessories out of the oven
compartment and wash them.
– heat up the appliance once with
nothing in it.
With new appliances, there is usually
a smell during first use. High
temperatures will help dissipate this
smell more quickly.
Please ensure the room is well
ventilated during this operation.
Close doors to other rooms to
prevent the smell spreading
throughout the house.
^ Before heating it up it is a good idea
to wipe the interior out with a damp
cloth first. This way any dust or bits of
packaging that may have
accumulated in the oven
compartment during storage and
unpacking will be removed.
^ Turn the function selector to Fan Plus
U.
The recommended temperature of
160 °C will appear.
^ Use the temperature selector to set
the highest temperature (250 °C).
^ Heat up the empty appliance for at
least an hour.
The timer can be used to set the finish
time (see "Operation - Programming
cooking times - to switch a programme
off automatically").
^ Leave the appliance to cool down to
room temperature.
^ Then wipe the oven interior out with a
solution of hot water and a mild
detergent and then dry it thoroughly
with a soft clean cloth.
Leave the oven door open until the
oven interior is completely dry.

Microwaves
– are reflected by metal,
– pass through glass, porcelain,
plastic and card,
– and are absorbed by food.
Material and shape
The material and shape of containers
used affect cooking results and times.
Heat distribution is more even in round
and oval shaped flat containers than in
rectangular containers, providing better
results.
,Ovenproof earthenware can
retain a considerable amount of
moisture. Earthenware and porcelain
containers 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, causing the container to
crack or shatter, with the danger of
injury.
Metal
Metal containers, aluminium foil,
metal cutlery and china with metallic
decoration such as gold rims or
cobalt bule must not be used with
microwave power.
Metal reflects microwaves and
obstructs the cooking process.
Do not use plastic pots where the
foil lid has not been completely
removed as small pieces of foil
could cause sparks.
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
22
Page: 22
Exceptions:
The rack supplied with the
appliance is suitable for use with
microwave power (combination
programmes).
However, it must not be placed on
the oven floor.
– Metal baking trays can be used with
combination programmes which use
microwave power.
– If recommended by the producer,
pre-cooked meals in aluminium foil
containers can be defrosted and
reheated in the appliance using
microwave power. Important:
Remove the lid first.
However, as food is only heated from
the top it is better to remove the food
from the aluminium foil container and
transfer it to a dish suitable for a
microwave oven. The heat
distribution will be more even.
Do not place aluminium foil dishes
on the rack in case the dish sparks
or arcs. If sparks occur, transfer
food to a microwave-safe container.
– For even defrosting and to avoid
overcooking unevenly shaped cuts
of meat, poultry or fish, small pieces
of aluminium foil may be used to
mask wing-tips or other thin parts for
the last few minutes of the process.
Make sure that the aluminium foil is
at least 2 cm from the oven walls at
all times.
– Metal meat skewers or clamps
should only be used if they are very
small in comparison to the size of the
cut of meat.
Glassware
Heat-resistant glass or ceramic glass
are ideal for use in the microwave oven.
Crystal glass is unsuitable as it
contains lead which could cause the
glass to crack in the microwave.
Porcelain
Porcelain is a suitable material.
Do not use porcelain with gold or
silver edging or items with hollow
knobs or handles, as insufficient
ventilation may cause pressure.
Earthenware
Decorated earthenware is only suitable
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
metals which make them unsuitable
for use in a microwave oven.
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
23
Page: 23
Wood
Wooden dishes are not suitable.
Moisture contained in the wood
evaporates when exposed to
microwave energy, causing the
wood to dry and crack.
Plastics
Only plastic containers and plastic
disposable containers which are
specified by the manufacturer as
suitable for use in a microwave oven
may be used. Disposable containers
are not always recyclable or
biodegradable.
,Plastic items may only be used
with Microwave _ (Solo). They
must be heat-resistant to a minimum
of 110 °C. Otherwise the plastic
may melt and fuse with the food.
Special plastic utensils designed for
use in microwave ovens are available
from good retail outlets.
Melamine is not suitable for use in this
oven. Melamine absorbs microwave
energy and gets hot. When purchasing
plasticware, make sure that it is suitable
for use in a microwave oven.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when reheating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of
plastic, paper or other inflammable
materials.
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 bursting.
Roasting bags and tubes can be
used. Please follow the manufacturer's
instructions.
,Do not use metal clips, plastic
clips containing metal parts, or
paper ties containing wire.
There is a danger that they will ignite
when heated.

Testing dishes for their
suitability
If in doubt as to whether glass,
earthenware or porcelain plates or
dishes are suitable for use in a
microwave oven, a simple test can
be performed:
^ Insert the glass tray in the oven at the
lowest shelf level and place the
empty item you wish to test on the
glass tray. Fill a suitable glass with
water and also place this on the
glass tray.
^ Close the door.
^ Select the microwave function _
and select the hightest power level
(1000 W).
^ Confirm with "OK".
^ Enter a duration of 30 seconds and
confirm with "OK".
At the end of the test, the water in
the glass should be warm and the
dish cool. If the dish is hot, it would
be unwise to use the dish.
If a cracking noise is heard
accompanied by sparks during the
test, switch the appliance off imme-
diately. Any crockery which causes
this reaction is unsuitable for use
with microwave power.
If any doubt exists about the
suitability of a container, please
contact the supplier.
This test cannot be used to check
whether items with hollow knobs or
handles are suitable for use with
microwave power.
Placing the dish in the oven
^ Insert the glass tray at the lowest
shelf level.
^ The dish containing the food should
always be placed in the middle of the
glass tray.
Placing the food directly on the floor
of the oven would give unsatisfactory
and uneven
defrosting/cooking/reheating results
as the microwaves would not be able
to reach the food from below.
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
25

A cover
– prevents too much steam escaping,
especially when cooking foods which
need longer to cook, such as
potatoes.
– speeds up the cooking process.
– prevents food from drying out.
– helps keep the oven interior clean.
When using programmes which use the
microwave function always cover the
food with lids or covers made of
microwave-safe glass or plastic, or use
a clingfilm recommened for use in a
microwave oven (pierce as instructed
by the manufacturer).
Unsuitable clingfilm can melt into the
food.
,Sealed glass containers, such as
jars of baby food, must be opened
before they are placed in the oven.
Do not use a cover if
– food coated with breadcrumbs is
being cooked.
– cooking meals which are to be given
a crisp finish.
– using a combination programme
which uses microwave power.
,The cover supplied may only be
used in Microwave _ (Solo) mode.
The cover can only withstand
temperatures of up to 110 °C.
Higher temperatures generated by
grilling or fan heat could cause the
plastic to distort and fuse with the
food.
The cover should not form a seal
with the container. If the cover is
used with a container which only has
a narrow diameter, there might not
be enough room for condensation to
escape through the holes in the top.
The cover could get too hot and
could start to melt.

phase.
When using the Fan plus function it is
only necessary to pre-heat in a few
instances:
– Pre-heating may be necessary for
foods which cook in less than
20 minutes and for foods such as
puff pastry and yeast mixtures where
instant heat is required to make them
rise quickly.
– for roasting beef/fillet.
Do not use Rapid heat-up S to
pre-heat the oven when baking
pizzas or biscuits and small cakes.
They will brown too quickly.
To pre-heat the oven:
^ Select Rapid heat-up S.
^ Use the temperature selector to set
the required temperature.
The oven will start to heat up.
^ When the temperature indicator light

longer to reheat than foods that are at room temperature.
Please refer to the relevant tables.
Defrosting, reheating and cooking using microwave power
42
Page: 42
Before defrosting, reheating and
cooking
^ Place food (including frozen) in a
dish that is suitable for the
microwave, and cover it.
^ Place the container in the middle of
the glass tray and insert it at the
lowest shelf level.
With combination programmes
Only use heat-resistant containers
which are microwave-safe.
A lid is generally not required.
It is essential not to cover food when
using "Microwave+Grill", as the food
will not brown.
^ Place the glass tray on the second
lowest shelf level.
Ready made meals in aluminium
containers must be placed directly onto
the glass tray.
During the defrosting, reheating and
cooking process
Turn or stir the food several times. Stir
the food from the outside towards the
middle, as food heats more quickly
from the outside.
After defrosting, reheating and
cooking
Allow the food to stand at room
temperature long enough to allow the
temperature to spread evenly
throughout the food.
,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.
,Be careful when removing
dishes from the appliance.
Although heat is not normally
produced in the container itself by
the microwaves (apart from
stoneware), heat transfer from the
food to the container may be
considerable, making the container
itself hot.
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated.
If in any doubt that the food has been
sufficiently reheated/cooked, place it
back in the appliance and reheat/cook
it for a little longer.
It is very important to make sure that
food which goes off easily, such as fish,
poultry and minced meat is cooked
sufficiently.
Defrosting, reheating and cooking using microwave power

Page: 43
Guidance on reheating food
Food for babies and young children
or the elderly must not be allowed to
get too hot. 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 using 450 watts, and
tasted to make sure it is not too hot
for a baby's palate before serving.
When reheating other food or drink,
heat to a high temperature and allow
to cool to a suitable heat for eating.
For formula milk, follow the
manufacturer's instructions.
Always open glass jars.
Remove the lid from jars of baby
food.
Remove the screw cap and the teat
before heating up bottles of baby milk.
When reheating liquids place the
boiling rod supplied into the cup or
glass.
Never reheat hard boiled eggs in a
microwave oven, even without the
shell. The eggs can explode.
Guidance on cooking
Food with a thick skin or peel, such
as tomatoes, sausages, jacket
potatoes and aubergines, should be
pierced or cut in several places to
allow steam to escape and prevent
the food from bursting.
Similarly, hard-boiled eggs should
not be cooked using the Microwave
_ function as this may lead to the
eggs exploding, even after they
have been taken out of the oven.
Eggs can, however, be cooked
using microwave power if you have
purchased special containers
designed for this purpose.
Eggs can be cooked without their
shells using microwave power only if
the yolk membrane has been
punctured several times first. The
pressure could otherwise cause the
egg yolk to explode.
Defrosting, reheating and cooking using microwave power

Use Tips
Defrosting large
quantities of food at
once, e.g. 2 kg fish
The glass tray placed on the lowest level can be used
for defrosting food.
Reheating food Always cover food when reheating it, except when
reheating meat/fish coated in breadcrumbs.
Cooking vegetables Add a little water to vegetables which have been kept
stored.
Vegetable cooking times depend on the texture of the
vegetable. Fresh vegetables contain more water than
vegetables which have been stored and usually cook
more quickly.
Cooking frozen
ready-meals
These can be defrosted and reheated or cooked at the
same time. Please follow instructions given on the
packet.
Problem Possible cause and remedy
The food is not
sufficiently heated or is
not cooked at the end
of a set time.
Check that you remembered to restart the programme
after interrupting a cooking process using microwave
power.
Check that the correct duration was selected for the
power level chosen when cooking or reheating in
microwave mode.
The lower the power level the longer the duration.
Food cools down too
quickly after being
reheated or cooked in
microwave mode.
When cooked by microwaves, food begins to cook from
the outside first, the inside of the food relying on the
slower conduction of heat.
If food is cooked at a high power level it is possible that
the heat may not have reached the centre of the food.
Food may be warm in the middle but cool on the edge.
When reheating food with different densities, such as
plated meals, it is sensible to start with a low power
level and select a longer reheating time.

Suitable for doughs which require
longer baking, such as rubbed in and
beaten mixtures and yeast recipes.
The baking duration is shorter.
A microwave power level of no more
than 150 W is used throughout the
baking duration.
Bakeware
For the best baking results make sure
that you chose bakeware in a material
suitable for the particular oven function
you are using.
Fan plus U
Bakeware made of any heat-resistant
material is suitable. Light-coloured,
thin-walled, non-reflective metal tins
can be used, but results may not be as
good as with dark non-reflective tins.
Microwave+Fan plus a
Only use heat-resistant bakeware which
is microwave-safe (see "Suitable
containers for microwaves" ), e.g
bakeware made of heat-resistant glass
or ceramics, as microwaves can
penetrate these materials.
Metal bakeware, on the other hand,
reflects microwaves, which are then
only able to access the cake from
above. A longer baking time would be
required. Furthermore, metal baking
tins can also cause sparking.
To check for suitability, place the tin on the
glass tray, and make sure it does not
touch the interior walls. If sparking
continues, do not use this tin again with a
microwave combination programme.

Useful tips
You can also programme the duration
(see "Operation - Programming cooking
durations). However, do not delay the
start too long when baking as the cake
mixture or dough will dry out, and the
raising agents will lose their
effectiveness.
Place cakes being baked in retangular
tins with the longer side across the
width of the oven for optimum heat
distribution and even results.
Eating food which has been cooked
correctly is important for good
health.
Only bake cakes, pizza, chips etc.
until they are golden brown. Do not
overcook them.
Even baking and browning is achieved
when baking cakes, pastries, frozen
foods such as chips, croquettes, pizza,
baguettes etc. by
– selecting the lowest temperature
given in the recipe/cooking
instructions on the packaging.
Do not set a temperature higher than
that recommended. Increasing the
temperature may reduce the cooking
time, but will lead to uneven
browning, and unsatisfactory
cooking results.
– Check if the food is cooked at the
end of the shortest time quoted.
To check if a cake is ready, insert a
wooden skewer into the centre.
It is ready if the skewer comes out
clean, without dough or crumbs
sticking to it.
– Place chips, croquettes and similar
types of food on baking parchment.
