YOU NEED TO KNOW
About
Utensils
and Coverings
It is not necessary to buy all new cookware.
Many
pieces already in your kitchen can be used success-
fully in your new Over the Range Microwave Oven.
Make sure the utensil does not touch the interior
walls during cooking.
Use these utensils
for safe microwave
cooking
and reheating:
glass
ceramic
(Pyroceram®),
such
as
Corn ingware ®.
heat-resistant
glass (Pyrex ®)
microwave-safe
plastics
paper plates
microwave-safe
pottery,
stoneware
and
porcelain
browning
dish (Do not exceed recommended
preheating
time.
Follow
manufacturer's
directions.)
These items can be used for short time reheating
of foods that have little fat or sugar in them:
= wood, straw, wicker
DO NOT USE
metal pans and bakeware
• dishes with metallic trim
non-heat-resistant
glass
non-microwave-safe
plastics
(margarine
tubs)
recycled paper products
brown paper bags
food storage bags
metal twist-ties
Should
you wish to check
if a dish is safe for
microwaving,
place the empty dish in the oven and
microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds. A dish which
becomes very hot should not be used.
The following
coverings
are ideal:
Paper towels are good for covering
foods for
reheating
and absorbing
fat while
cooking
bacon.
Wax
paper
can
be used
for cooking
and
reheating.
Plastic wrap that is specially marked for micro-
wave use can be used for cooking and reheating.
DO NOT allow plastic wrap to touch food. Vent
so steam can escape.
Lids that are microwave-safe
are a good choice
because heat is kept near the food to hasten
cooking.
Oven cooking bags are good for large meats or
foods that need tenderizing.
DO NOT use metal
twist ties. Remember to slit bag so steam can
escape.
How to use aluminum
foil in your Over the Range
Microwave
Oven:
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 oven.
Should you have questions about utensils or cover-
ings, 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
cor-
rect doneness
and assure you that foods
have
been cooked to safe temperatures.
Electrolux
is
not responsible for any damage to the oven when
accessories are used.
