Sensor Cook
The Sensor is used in auto cooking modes.
During the Sensor Cook function a sensor automatically adjusts
the cook time and power level.
The timeline will show "SENSING" and then the time countdown
once the sensor identifies the cooking duration.
If the microwave oven door is opened during a sensor function,
the microwave oven will turn off and any additional operations will
be canceled.
For best cooking performance:
Before using a sensor cook function, make sure power has been
supplied to the microwave oven for at least 2 minutes, the room
temperature is not above 95°F (35°C), and the outside of the
cooking container and the microwave oven cavity are dry.
Popcorn
Do not use regular paper bags or glassware.
Pop only one package of popcorn at a time.
Follow manufacturer's instructions when using a microwave
popcorn popper.
Listen for popping to slow to one pop every 1 or 2 seconds,
and then stop the cycle. Do not repop unpopped kernels.
For best results, use fresh bags of popcorn.
Cooking results may vary by brand and fat content.
Recommended bag sizes are 3.5 oz, 3.0 oz, and 1.75 oz.
NOTE: Follow the instructions provided by the microwave popcorn
manufacturer.
