Thank you for purchasing a Panasonic Microwave Oven. Your microwave oven is a cooking appliance and you should use as much care as you use with a stove or any other cooking appliance. When using this electric appliance, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:...
(c) DO NOT use straight-sided containers with narrow necks. (d) After heating, allow the container to stand in the microwave oven for a short time before removing the container. 19. DO NOT cook directly on the turntable. It can crack, and cause injury or damage to the oven.
The oven will remain inoperable until it has cooled. 2. If the oven is designed for installation into a wall cabinet by using the proper trim kit available from a local Panasonic dealer, follow all instructions packed with the kit.
(120 V, 60 Hz). Using a higher voltage is dangerous and may result in a fire or oven damage. Using a lower voltage will cause slow cooking. Panasonic is NOT responsible for any damages resulting from the use of the oven with any voltage other than specified.
3) DEEP FAT FRYING • DO NOT deep fat fry in your microwave oven. Cooking oils may burst into flames and may cause damage to the oven and perhaps result in burns. Microwave utensils may not withstand the temperature of the hot oil, and can shatter or melt.
Microwave safe thermometers are available for both meat and candy. 9) BABY FORMULA / BABY FOOD • DO NOT heat baby formula or baby food in the microwave oven. The glass jar or surface of the food may appear warm while the interior can be so hot as to burn the infant’s mouth and esophagus.
TO TEST A CONTAINER FOR SAFE MICROWAVE OVEN USE: Fill a microwave safe cup with cool water and place it in the microwave oven alongside the empty container to be tested; heat one (1) minute at P10 (HIGH). If the container is microwave oven safe (transparent to microwave energy), the empty container should remain comfortably cool and the water should be hot.
