HOW A MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy
released enables food to be cooked or reheated without changing either
the form or the colour.
You can use your microwave to:
• Defrost
• Cook
Cooking Principle
1. The microwaves generated by the magnetron are
distributed uniformly by using stirrer distribution
system. The food is thus cooked evenly.
2. The microwaves are absorbed by the food up to
a depth of about 1 inch (2.5 cm). Cooking then
continues as the heat is dissipated within the food.
3. Cooking times vary according to the container used
and the properties of the food:
• Quantity and density
• Water content
• Initial temperature (Refrigerated or not)
Important
As the centre of the food is cooked by heat dissipation, cooking continues even
when you have taken the food out of the oven.
Standing times specified in recipes and in this booklet must therefore be respected
to ensure:
• Even cooking of the food right to the centre
• The same temperature throughout the food

Page: 37
38_ oven use
USING MICROWAVE MODE
Microwaves are high frequency electromagnetic waves. In microwave cooking,
microwave energy penetrates food, attracted and absorbed by its water, fat and sugar
content. The microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move rapidly.
The rapid movement of these molecules creates friction and the resulting heat cooks the
food.
Setting Microwave Mode
1 Turn MODE SELECTOR to
microwave position. Time and power
level will appear on display.
2 Turn MULTI-FUNCTION
SELECTOR to set desired cooking
time. When cooking time is set,

Cookware used for Microwave Mode must allow microwaves to pass through
and penetrate food. Metals such as stainless steel, aluminum and copper
reflect microwaves. Therefore, do not use cookware made of metallic materials.
Cookware marked microwave-safe is always safe for use. For additional
information on appropriate cookware refer to following guide and always use
ceramic tray on shelf Level 1 when using microwave mode.

Microwave cooking guide
General guidelines
Food suitable for microwave cooking
Many kinds of food are suitable for microwave cooking, including fresh or frozen
vegetables, fruit, pasta, rice, grains, beans, fish, and meat. Sauces, custard,
soups, steamed puddings, preserves, and chutneys can also be cooked in a
microwave oven. Generally speaking, microwave cooking is ideal for any food
that would normally be prepared on a hob.
Covering during cooking
Food should be covered during cooking, as the evaporated water rises as steam
and contributes to cooking process. Food can be covered in different ways such
as with a ceramic plate, plastic cover or microwave suitable cling film.
Standing times
After cooking, it is important to let food stand for recommended standing time to
allow the temperature to even out within the food.
Cooking guide for frozen vegetables
Use a suitable glass Pyrex bowl with lid. Cook covered for the minimum time (see
table).
Continue cooking to get the result you prefer. Stir twice during cooking and once
after cooking.
Add salt, herbs or butter after cooking. Keep covered during standing time.

Cooking guide for fresh vegetables
Use a suitable glass Pyrex bowl with lid. Add 30-45 ml cold water (2-3 tbsp) for
every 250 g unless another water quantity is recommended (see table). Cook
covered for the minimum time (see table). Continue cooking to get the result you
prefer. Stir once during and after cooking.
Add salt, herbs or butter after cooking. Cover during the 3 minute standing time.
Hint
Cut fresh vegetables into even sized pieces. The smaller they are cut the
quicker they are cooked.
Note
All fresh vegetables should be cooked using full microwave power (900 W).

before letting stand. Add salt or herbs and butter. Note that rice may
not have absorbed all water after the cooking time is finished.
Pasta Use a large glass Pyrex bowl. Add boiling water, a pinch of salt and
stir well. Cook uncovered. Stir occasionally during and after cooking.
Cover during standing time and drain thoroughly afterwards.

Reheating
Your microwave oven will reheat food in a fraction of the time a conventional oven
takes.
Arranging and Covering
Avoid reheating large items such as joints of meat since they tend to overcook
and dry out before the centre is piping hot. You will have more success reheating
smaller pieces. Keeping food covered while heating will also help prevent drying.
Power Levels
Different power levels can be used for reheating foods.
In general, for large quantities of delicate food or foods that heat up quickly, such
as mince pies, it is better to use a lower power level.
Stirring
Stir well or turn food over during reheating for best results. When possible, stir
again before serving. Stirring is especially important when heating liquids.
Heating and Standing Times
When reheating food for the first time, it is helpful to make a note of the time
taken for future reference. Avoid overheating. If uncertain, it is preferable to
underestimate cooking time. Then extra heating time can be added, if necessary.
Always make sure that reheated food is piping hot throughout. Allow food
to stand for a short time after reheating to let the temperature even out. The
recommended standing time after reheating is 2-4 minutes

USE
Reheating liquids
Take special care when heating liquids. To prevent eruptive boiling and possible
scalding, place a spoon or glass stick in the beverage. Stir during heating and
always stir after heating.
Allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has been switched off
to allow the temperature to even out.
Reheating baby food
Baby Food
Extra caution should also be exercised when reheating baby foods. Put food into
deep ceramic plate. Cover with plastic lid. Stir well after reheating. Let stand for
2-3 minutes before serving. Stir again and check temperature. Recommended
serving temperature is between 30-40 °C.
Baby Milk
Pour milk into a sterilised glass bottle. Reheat uncovered. Never heat a baby’s
bottle with nipple on, as the bottle may explode if overheated. Shake well before
standing time and again before serving. Always carefully check the temperature
of baby milk or food before serving.
Recommended serving temperature is 37 °C.
Defrosting
Microwaves are an excellent way of defrosting frozen food. Microwaves gently
defrost frozen food in a short period of time. This can be a great advantage, if
unexpected guests suddenly show up.
Frozen poultry must be thoroughly thawed before cooking. Remove any metal
ties and take it out of any wrapping to allow thawed liquid to drain away.
Put the frozen food on a dish without cover. Turn over half way, drain off any
liquid and remove any giblets as soon as possible.
Check the food occasionally to make sure that it does not feel warm.
If smaller and thinner parts of the frozen food start to warm up, they can be shield
by wrapping very small strips of aluminium foil around them during defrosting.
Should poultry start to warm up on the outer surface, STOP/CANCEL thawing
and allow it to stand for 20 minutes before continuing.
Leave the fish, meat and poultry to stand in order to complete defrosting.
The standing time for complete defrosting will vary depending on the quantity
defrosted.
Please refer to the table on the next page.
Hint
Flat food defrosts better than thick and smaller quantities need less time
than bigger ones. Remember this hint while freezing and defrosting food.
For defrosting of frozen food with a temperature of about -18 to -20 °C, use the
following table as a guide.
Frozen foods should be defrosted using defrosting power level (180 W).
