INFORMATI
N 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.
ALWAYS have food in the Microwave Oven when it
is on to absorb the microwave energy.
When using the oven at power levels below 100%,
you may hear the magnetron cycling on and off. It
is normal for the exterior of the oven to be warm to
the touch when cooking or reheating.
Condensation
is a normal part of microwave cook-
ing. Room humidity and the moisture
in food will
influence the amount of moisture that condenses
in
the oven. Generally, covered foods will not cause as
much condensation
as uncovered ones. Ventilation
openings must not be blocked.
The Microwave Oven is for food preparation
only. It
should not be used to dry clothes or newspapers.
Your Microwave Oven is rated 1050 watts by using
the IEC Test Procedure. In using recipes or package
directions,
check food a minute or two before the
minimum time and add time accordingly.
About Microwave
Cooking
Arrange
food carefully.
Place thickest
areas
towards outside of dish.
Watch
cooking
time. Cook for the shortest
amount
of time indicated
and add more as
needed. Food severely overcooked
can smoke
or ignite.
Cover foods while cooking.
Check
recipe or
cookbook
for suggestions:
paper towels, wax
paper, microwave
plastic wrap or a lid.
Covers prevent spattering
and help foods to
cook evenly.
Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum foil any
thin areas of meat or poultry to prevent over-
cooking before dense, thick areas are cooked
thoroughly.
Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or
twice during cooking, if possible.
Turn foods over once during
microwaving
to
speed cooking
of such foods as chicken and
hamburgers.
Large items like roasts must be
turned over at least once.
Rearrange
foods such as meatballs
halfway
through cooking
both from top to bottom and
from the center of the dish to the outside.
Add standing
time. Remove
food from oven
and stir, if possible.
Cover for standing
time
which allows the food to finish cooking without
overcooking.
Check for doneness.
Look for signs indicating
that cooking temperatures
have been reached.
Doneness signs include:
Food steams throughout,
not just at edge.
Center
bottom
of dish is very hot to the
touch.
Poultry thigh joints move easily.
Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
