Microwave warning Microwave heating of beverages may result in delayed eruptive boiling; always use caution when handling the container. Always allow beverages to stand at least 20 seconds before handling. If necessary, stir during heating. Always stir after heating.In the event of scalding, follow these First Aid instructions: 1. Immerse the scalded area in cold water for at least 10 minutes. 2. Cover with a clean, dry dressing. 3. Do not apply any creams, oils, or lotions. To avoid damaging the tray or rack, do not put the tray or rack in water shortly after cooking. Do not use the oven for deep fat frying because the oil temperature cannot be controlled.

You can use your microwave oven to: Defrost Reheat Cook Cooking principle. 1. The microwaves generated by the magnetron reflected at cavity and are distributed uniformly as the food rotates on the turntable. 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 densityWater 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.
