How to use aluminum foil in your microwave
Small flat pieces of aluminum foil placed smoothly on the
food can be used to shield areas that are either defrosting
or cooking too quickly.
Foil should not come closer than one inch to any surface
of the microwave oven.
Should you have questions about utensils or coverings, check
a good microwave cookbook or follow recipe suggestions.
ACCESSORIES There are many microwave accessories
available for purchase. Evaluate carefully before you purchase
so that they meet your needs. A microwave-safe thermometer
will assist you in determining correct doneness and assure you
that foods have been cooked to safe temperatures. Electrolux
is not responsible for any damage to the microwave oven
when accessories are used.


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.
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing on
the microwave oven door.
Children should be taught all safety precautions: use
potholders, remove coverings carefully, pay special attention to
packages that crisp food because they may be extra hot.
don't assume that because a child has mastered one cooking
skill he/she can cook everything.
Children need to learn that the microwave oven is not a toy.
