Sensor Cooking

A sensor in the microwave oven detects humidity released from
the food as it heats and adjusts the cook time accordingly.
Many sensor cycles require the covering of foods. Microwave-
safe containers or steamers with loose-fitting lids are
recommended. The loose-fitting lid allows enough steam to
escape to be detected by the sensor. When covering foods
with plastic wrap, be sure to leave a large enough vent opening
to allow the steam to escape.
"SC" (sensor cook) will appear in the display during
sensor cooking.
NOTES:
The microwave oven should be plugged in for at least
3 minutes.
The microwave oven cavity and the exterior of the cooking
container should be dry.
The room temperature should not exceed 95°F (35°C).
If the door is opened while the sensor is detecting moisture
(while "SC" appears in the display), sensing will stop and the
program will be canceled.

One-Touch Sensor Cooking

A sensor in the microwave oven detects humidity released from
the food and automatically sets a cooking time based on the
selected pad.
NOTE: During Popcorn function, as with all microwave cooking
functions, the microwave oven should be attended at all times.
Listen for popping to slow to 1 pop every 1 or 2 seconds, then
stop the cycle.
Use the following chart as a guide for the One-Touch keypads.

* To avoid damage to the microwave oven, do not use regular
paper bags or glassware. For best cooking results, do not
try to pop unpopped kernels. Use fresh bags of popcorn
for optimal results. Cooking results may vary by brand and
fat content. For bag sizes not listed in this section, follow
directions on package. If using a microwave popcorn popper,
follow manufacturer's instructions.

remaining cook time may be recalculated several times
during cooking. Each time, the sensor animation will appear
for several seconds, followed by the new remaining time.
When the cycle ends, "END" will appear in the display and the
end-of-cycle tones will sound, followed by reminder tones.

Keep Warm function uses 10% cook power. Keep Warm can be
used by itself or can be programmed to follow a cooking cycle.
Cover plates of food.
Cover foods that were covered while being cooked.
For best results, do not cover baked goods such as pastries,
pies, turnovers, etc.

The display will count down the warming time and the Cook
Time indicator will flash.
Warming time may be adjusted at any time during the Keep
Warm cycle by turning the dial.
