SENSOR COOkING

level for various foods and quantities.

interior of the microwave oven are dry. Wipe off any
moisture with a dry cloth or paper towel.

The microwave oven works with foods at normal storage
temperature. For example, rice would be at room
temperature.

Any Sensor Cooking selection can be programmed with
MORE OR LESS TIME AdjUSTMENT. See page 18.
