  • Page 7: Information You Need To Know

    Information You Need To Know About your oven This Use and Care Guide is valuable: read it carefully and always save it for reference. NEVER use the oven without the turntable and support nor turn the turntable over so that a large dish could be placed in the oven. The turntable will turn both clockwise and counterclockwise.

  • Page 8: About Safety

    Information You Need To Know About safety • Check foods to see that they are cooked to the United States Department of Agriculture’s recom- mended temperatures. Temp 160˚F For fresh pork, ground meat, bone- less white poultry, fish, seafood, egg dishes and frozen prepared food. 165˚F For leftover, ready-to-reheat refriger- ated, and deli and carry-out “fresh” food. 170˚F White meat of poultry. 180˚F Dark meat of poultry. To test for doneness, insert a meat thermometer in a thick or dense area away from fat or bone. NEVER leave the thermometer in the food during cooking, unless it is approved for microwave use. • ALWAYS use potholders to prevent burns when handling utensils that are in contact with hot food. Enough heat from the food can transfer through utensils to cause skin burns. About children Children below the age of 7 should use the microwave oven with a supervising person very near to them. Between the ages of 7 and 12, the supervising person should be in the same room.
