3 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS WARNING! Do not use your microwave oven for heating anything in airtight sealed containers. The pressure increases and may cause damage when opening or may explode. WARNING! The door seals and the door seal areas must be regularly inspected for damage. If these areas are damaged the appliance should not be operated until it has been repaired by a trained service technician. EGGS Do not use your microwave oven for cooking or reheating whole eggs with or without shell since they may explode even after microwave heating has ended. PRECAUTIONS GENERAL This appliance is designed for domestic use only! LIQUIDS E.g. beverages or water in your microwave oven, overheating the liquid beyond boiling point can occur without evidence of bubbling. This could result in a sudden boil over of the hot liquid. To prevent this possibility the following steps should be taken: 1. Avoid using straight-sided containers with narrow necks. 2. Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and let the teaspoon remain in the container. 3. After heating, allow standing for a short time, stirring again before carefully removing the container from the oven. The appliance should not be operated without food in the oven when using microwaves. Operation in this manner is likely to damage the appliance. If you practice operating the oven, put a glass of water inside. The water will absorb the microwave energy and the oven will not be damaged. Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before placing bag in the oven. DEEP-FRYING Do not use your microwave oven for deep-frying, because the oil temperature cannot be controlled. Use hot pads or oven mitts to prevent burns, when touching containers, oven parts, and pan after cooking. CAREFUL Always refer to a microwave cookbook for details. Especially, if cooking or reheating food that contains alcohol. After heating baby food or liquids in a baby bottle or in a baby food jar, always stir and check the temperature before serving. This will ensure that the heat is evenly distributed and the risk of scalding or burns can be avoided. Ensure the Lid and the Teat is removed before heating! Do not use the cavity for any storage purposes. Do not remove the microwave inlet protection plates located on the side of the oven cavity wall. They prevent grease & food particles from entering the microwave inlet channels.

7 Do not use metal scouring pads on the inside of the oven cavity. They will scratch the surface. DISHWASHER SAFE: Turntable support. Glass turntable. MAINTENANCE & CLEANING Failure to maintain the oven in a clean condition could lead to deterioration of the surface that could adversely affect the life of the appliance and possibly result in a hazardous situation. At regular intervals, especially if spillovers have occurred, remove the turntable, the turntable support and wipe the base of the oven clean. This oven is designed to operate with the turntable in place. Do not operate the microwave oven when the turntable has been removed for cleaning. Use a mild detergent, water and a soft cloth to clean the interior surfaces, front and rear of the door and the door opening. Do not allow grease or food particles to build up around the door. For stubborn stains, boil a cup of water in the oven for 2 or 3 minutes. Steam will soften the marks. Adding some lemon juice to a cup of water, placing this on the turntable and boiling for a few minutes can eliminate odors inside the oven. Abrasive cleansers, steel-wool pads, gritty wash cloths, etc. can damage the control panel, and the interior and exterior oven surfaces. Use a sponge with a mild detergent or a paper towel with spray glass cleaner. Apply spray glass cleaner to a paper towel. Do not spray directly on the oven.
