PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID
POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE
ENERGY
Do not attempt to operate this oven
with the door open since open-door
operation can result in harmful
exposure to microwave energy. It is
important not to damage or tamper
with the safety interlocks.
Do not place any object between the
oven front and the door or allow soil
or cleaner residue to accumulate on
sealing surfaces.
Do not operate the oven if it is
damaged. It is particularly important
that the oven door closes properly
and that there is no damage to the:
(1) door (bent), (2) hinges and
latches (broken or loosened),
(3) door seals and sealing surfaces.
The oven should not be adjusted or
repaired by anyone except properly
qualified service personnel.
Safety
~ Do not use the oven to heat the
room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects left near the oven
could catch fire.
~ Do not submerge the cord or plug in
water.
~ Keep the power cord away from
heated surfaces.
~ Do not let the cord hang over the
edge of a table or counter.
~ Do not cover or block any openings
on the appliance.
~ Times for cooking, heating and
defrosting food in the microwave are
shorter than that of traditional food
preparation methods. Extensive
microwaving could dry out food and
cause possible ignition. Fire hazard!
~ Do not heat cushions filled with
herbs, gel, etc. with the microwave
function. The cushions could ignite,
even once removed from the oven after
heating. This is a fire hazard.
~ Do not use full power to warm empty
dishes or dry herbs.
~ Do not heat an empty microwave.
~ Do not use the appliance for
dehydrating food, or leave it
unattended when cooking with oils and
fats. Fire hazard.

~ If materials inside the oven ignite,
keep the oven door closed to avoid
fueling any flames. Turn the oven off or
disconnect the power supply.
~ Cover food that is left in the
microwave to stay warm. Otherwise
moisture from the food could damage
the machine. This will also prevent the
food from drying out.
~ Spills or stains from food and liquids
containing salt should be immediately
cleaned from the stainless steel interior.
Corrosion may occur.
~ If smoke occurs in the oven, to avoid
fueling any flame, do not open the oven
door. Switch the appliance off by
pressing the Stop/C button, switch off
at the mains and remove the plug from
the socket. Do not open the oven door
until the smoke has dispersed.
~ Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
this appliance. The steam could
penetrate live components and
permanently damage the oven or cause
injury.
~ When cleaning surfaces of the door
and oven that come together when the
door is closed, use only mild,
non-abrasive soaps, or detergents
applied with a sponge or soft cloth.
~ Do not operate the microwave
empty. This will cause damage.
~ Do not use items containing metal,
aluminum foil, cutlery, dishware with
metal decoration, crystal glass
containing lead, bowls with a knurled
rim, non-temperature safe dishware,
wooden dishware, metal clips, wire
twist ties, food containers with metal
coverings or residues.
Danger of machine damage and fire.
~ Do not leave the appliance
unattended when heating food in
disposable, e.g. plastic, paper or other
flammable materials.
~ Do not use the oven to heat food in
heat retaining packaging, e.g. take-out
food bags.
This packaging contains a thin layer of
aluminum foil which reflects the
microwaves. This reflected energy can
cause the paper layer to ignite.
~ Before serving food allow a
sufficient standing time. Always check
the temperature of the food itself after
taking it out of the microwave. Do not
judge by the plate temperature. The
heat is created in the food, the dishes
may stay cool to the touch.
~ Always check the temperature
before serving heated baby food.
~ Use a food thermometer to measure
the foods temperature. Do not use
thermometers containing mercury or
liquids, they are not suitable for high
temperatures and break easily.
~ Never cook or reheat food and
liquids in sealed containers or bottles.
Remove the nipple or lid before heating
in the microwave. Built-up pressure
may cause them to burst. Danger of
injuries.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Page: 7
~ When heating liquids, the provided
boiling wand should be placed into the
container.
Liquids, such as water, coffee, or tea
are able to be overheated beyond the
boiling point without appearing to be
boiling. Visible bubbling or boiling
when the container is removed from the
microwave oven is not always present.
THIS COULD RESULT IN VERY HOT
LIQUIDS SUDDENLY BOILING OVER
WHEN THE CONTAINER IS
DISTURBED OR A UTENSIL IS
INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
The built-up pressure may force the
oven door open. This could result in
injury or damage. The boiling wand
ensures that the liquid boils evenly and
that steam bubbles form at an early
stage.
~ Some products such as whole eggs
and sealed containers - for example,
closed glass jars - are able to explode
and should not be heated in this oven.
~ Eggs can be cooked without their
shells in the microwave oven only if the
yolk membrane has been punctured
first. The pressure could otherwise
cause the egg yolk to explode. Danger
of injuries.
~ Do not heat closed containers in the
microwave oven. They may burst.
~ Food with a thick skin or peel, such
as tomatoes, sausages and potatoes
should be pierced in several places
before cooking to allow steam to vent
and prevent the food from bursting.
~ Always ensure that the turntable is in
place before turning on the microwave.
~ Do not heat dishware with hollow
handles or lid knobs. Moisture can get
into the hollow parts. (The hollow parts
of some dishware can be vented).
Danger of built-up pressure and the
explosion of the hollow parts may
cause injuries.

Before the first use
11
Page: 11
Microwaves:
– are reflected by metal,
– pass through glass and chinaware,
– are absorbed by the food.
Material and shape
The material and shape of containers
used affect cooking results and times.
Circular and oval containers work best.
The food will heat more evenly than in a
square container.
Container and lids which contain
hollow handles or knobs are not
suitable for use in the microwave.
The handles or knobs could collect
moisture if not adequately vented.
Without vent holes pressure can
build up, causing the container to
crack or shatter, danger of injury.
Metal
,Do not use metal containers,
aluminum foil, cutlery or dishes with
metal decor in the microwave.
The metal reflects the microwaves
which can damage the microwave.
Selecting cookware
12

Exceptions:
– Pre-cooked meals in aluminum foil
containers can be defrosted and
reheated in the microwave, if
recommended by the manufacturer.
Important: Remove the lid before
heating the food.
The food is heated only from above.
To heat the food evenly place it in a
container suitable for microwaving.
Make sure that the aluminum foil is
at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) from the
microwave walls at all times. It must
not touch the walls.
– For even defrosting and to avoid
overcooking unevenly shaped cuts
of meat, poultry or fish, small pieces
of aluminum foil may be used to
mask wing-tips or other thin parts for
the last few minutes of the process.
– Metal meat skewers or clamps
should only be used if they are small
in comparison to the size of the
meat.
Glassware
Heat-resistant glass or ceramic
glassware are ideal for use in the
microwave.
Crystal contains lead and is
unsuitable.
Porcelain (china)
Porcelain (china) is suitable for use in
the microwave.
Do not use porcelain with gold or
silver edging or items with hollow
knobs or handles, insufficient
ventilation may cause damage.
Earthenware
Decorated earthenware is only suitable
if the decoration is beneath the glaze.
Earthenware can get very hot and
may crack.
Glazes and colors
Some glazes and colors contain
metallic substances. They are not
suitable for the microwave.
Wood
Wood containers are not suitable.
The water from the wood evaporates
during the cooking process causing
it to dry out and crack.
Selecting cookware
13
Page: 13
Plastic
When purchasing plasticware, be
sure it is suitable for use in a
microwave.
It must be heat resistant up to 230°F
(110°C) otherwise the plastic may
melt into the food. Otherwise the
plastic may melt.
Special plasticware, designed for use
in microwaves is available in retail
outlets.
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.
Do not use metal clips, plastic clips
with metal parts, or twist ties
containing wire. They could ignite
when heated.
Disposable containers
Only those plastic disposable
containers specified under "Plastics"
are suitable for use in the microwave.
Do not leave the microwave
unattended when reheating or
cooking food in disposable
containers made of plastic, paper or
other flammable materials.
Disposable containers are not always
microwave safe.
Selecting cookware
14
Page: 14
Covering the food
Plastics are only heat-resistant up to
230°F (110°C). Higher temperatures
can cause the cover to melt into the
food.
The cover should not completely
seal the container. This may prevent
steam from escaping causing the
cover to melt.
The cover:
– prevents most of the steam from
escaping, especially when cooking
foods which needs longer to cook,
such as potatoes.
– shortens and evens out the cooking
process.
– prevents the food from drying out.
– prevents soiling of the microwave
interior.
^ Always cover food with the supplied
cover.
A glass or plastic lid is also suitable as
an alternative for microwaves. Available
in retail stores.
Plastic wrap suitable for microwaving
can also be used.
Do not heat food in closed containers
e.g. glass baby food containers. Vent
the container before heating.
Do not use a cover if cooking food in
which a crisp finish is desired e.g.
breaded chicken, garlic bread, etc.

To reheat food/drinks select the
following power levels:
Drinks. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 900 Watts
Food. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 600 Watts
Food for babies/toddlers . . . . 450 Watts
Take care that baby/toddler food is
at a safe temperature when served.
Heat for only for 30 seconds at a
time then check temperature.
Reheating tips
– Use a lid or cover for reheating food,
except when a "drier" finish is
needed, e.g. breaded foods.
– Remove the lid from glass containers
e.g. baby food jars.
– Remove the lid or nipple from baby
bottles before heating.
– To heat a liquid, insert the boiling
wand into the container.
Do not reheat hard boiled eggs,
even without the shell, in the
microwave. The eggs can burst.
– Stir or turn food from time to time to
ensure even reheating.
After reheating
Be careful when removing a dish
from the microwave, it may be hot.
^ 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.
Reheating
24
Page: 24
Place food in a microwave-safe dish
and cover.
When cooking it is recommended to
select a power level of 900 W to begin
with, and once the food is hot reduce
the power to 450 W for more gentle
cooking.
For dishes such as rice or oatmeal, first
select a power level of 900 W then
reduce to 150 W for simmering.
Cooking tips
– Add a little water when cooking
vegetables that are not fresh in the
microwave. Fresh vegetables cook
quicker.
– Food from the fridge needs a longer
cooking time than food at room
temperature.
– Stir of turn food during cooking to
help it cook more evenly.
– Food with a thick skin or peel, such
as potatoes and sausage, should be
pierced several times before cooking
to allow steam to vent and prevent
the food from bursting.
– Eggs can be cooked without their
shells in the microwave only if the
yolk has been punctured. The
pressure could otherwise cause the
egg yolk to explode.
After cooking
Be careful when removing a dish
from the microwave, it may be hot.

Defrosting
The following microwave power levels
are recommended for defrosting:
– 80 W
for defrosting delicate food such as
heavy cream, butter, cheese, etc.
– 150 W
for defrosting all other foods.
^ Take the frozen food from the
packaging and put it in a microwave
safe container. Do not cover. Turn,
stir or separate food about halfway
through the defrosting time.
Defrosting tips
– Fish does not need to be fully
defrosted before cooking. Defrost it
so that the surface is soft enough to
adhere seasoning and herbs.
– Turn meat halfway through
defrosting.
Defrosting followed by
reheating or cooking
Deep-frozen food can be defrosted and
then immediately reheated or cooked.
^ After defrosting, select 900 W
followed by 450 W.
Remove food from its packaging and
place in a covered microwave-safe
dish. Exception: ground meat should
be left uncovered.
Tips
– Soups, stew and vegetables should
be stirred several times during the
process.
– Carefully separate and turn slices of
meat/fish halfway though the
program.
After defrosting followed by
reheating or cooking
After defrosting allow the food to stand
at room temperature long enough to
distribute the heat evenly throughout
the food.

Frequently asked questions
35
Page: 35
Why does the food cool so fast when heated or cooked with Microwave?
In the microwave, food begins to cook from the outside first, the inside of the
food relies on the transfer of heat. If food is cooked at a high power level it is
possible that the heat may not have reached the center of the food. At the
temperature equalization time the food will become hot in the inside and warm
on the outside. When heating a meal, select a lower power level and a longer
cooking time.
Why did the microwave turn itself off during a program?
Possible fault Solution
There may be insufficient air
circulation.
^ Check if the air inlet or outlet is blocked.
Remove any objects.
The appliance turns itself off automatically
to prevent overheating. The program can
be continued once the microwave is
allowed to cool.
If the microwave turns itself off repeatedly,
contact Miele Technical Service.
Contact Technical Service for all other fault messages or if the fault could not
be fixed. Do not open the outer casing of the appliance. The appliance must
only be repaired by a qualified service technician.
