The sensor in the microwave oven determines the appropriate
popping time of commercially
packaged microwavable
popcorn.
Do not use regular paper bags or glassware.
Pop only 1 package of popcorn at a time.
Follow manufacturer's
instructions
when using a microwave
popcorn popper.
Listen for popping to slow to 1 pop every 1 or 2 seconds,
then stop the cycle. Do not try to pop unpopped kernels.
Use fresh bags of popcorn for optimal results.
Cooking results may vary by brand and fat content.
There are 2 popcorn functions: Regular and Snack. Use Regular
for bag sizes 3.5 oz (99 g) and 3.0 oz (85 g). Use Snack for bag
size 1.75 oz (50 g).
To Use Auto Sensor Popcorn:
1. Place popcorn bag on the turntable.
2. Touch POPCORN once for Regular, or twice for Snack.
Touch START, or wait for the oven to start the popping cycle
automatically.
When the cycle ends, "END" will appear in the display, and
the end-of-cycle
tones will sound, followed by reminder
tones.
3. Touch CANCEL or open the door to clear the display and/or
stop reminder tones.
A sensor in the microwave oven detects humidity released from
the food and automatically
sets a reheating time based on the
selection. Use the following chart as a guide.
FOOD
SERVING SIZE/INSTRUCTIONS
Dinner Plate
8-16 oz (227-454 g)
(refrigerated)
Place food on microwavable
plate, cover
with plastic wrap and vent.
Soup
1-4 cups (250 mL-1 L)
Place in microwavable
container, cover
with plastic wrap and vent. Stir and let
stand 2-3 minutes after reheating.

NOTE: When covering foods, make sure the vent opening is large
enough for moisture to escape. This will allow the sensor to
accurately determine reheating time.
To Use Auto Sensor Reheat:
Before using, make sure the microwave oven has been plugged
in for at least 3 minutes, the room temperature
is not above 95°F
(35°C), and the outside of the container and microwave oven
cavity are dry.
1. Place food on the turntable and close the door.
2. Touch REHEAT until the desired food type is displayed.
The microwave oven will start automatically
after a brief
delay.
When the cycle ends, "END" will appear in the display, and
the end-of-cycle
tones will sound, followed by reminder
tones.
3. Touch CANCEL or open the door to clear the display and/or
stop reminder tones.
Food Poisoning Hazard
Do not let food sit in oven more than one hour
before or after cooking.
Doing so can result in food poisoning or
sickness.
Hot cooked food can be kept warm in the microwave oven. Keep
Warm can be used by itself, or it can be programmed
to follow a
cooking cycle. Opening the door during Keep Warm will cancel
the function.
To Use:
Put hot cooked food in the microwave oven. Cover plates of food
and foods that were cooked covered. Pastries, pies, turnovers,
etc. should remain uncovered.
1. Touch KEEP WARM.
"WARM HOLD" will scroll twice, and then "START" will flash.
2. Touch START.
"WARM" will appear in the display during the entire cycle.
When the cycle ends, "END" will appear in the display, and
the end-of-cycle
tones will sound, followed by reminder
tones.
3. Touch CANCEL or open the door to clear the display and/or
stop reminder tones.
To Set at end of cycle: Touch KEEP WARM while setting a
cooking cycle before touching START.
