To test for doneness, insert a meat thermometer
in
a thick or dense area away from fat or bone. NEVER
leave the thermometer
in the food during cooking,
unless it is approved for microwave use.
ALWAYS use potholders to prevent burns when
handling utensils that are in contact with hot food.
Enough heat from the food can transfer through
utensils to cause skin burns.
,
Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from
the face and hands. Slowly lift the farthest edge
of a dish's covering and carefully open popcorn
and oven cooking bags away from the face.
Stay near the oven while it's in use and check
cooking progress frequently
so that there is no
chance of overcooking
food.
,
NEVER use the cavity for storing cookbooks
or
other items.
Select, store and handle food carefully to pre-
serve its high quality and minimize the spread of
foodborne
bacteria.
.
Keep waveguide cover clean. Food residue can
cause arcing and/or fires.
Use care when removing items from the oven so
that the utensil, your clothes or accessories
do
not touch the safety door latches.
Keep aluminum foil used for shielding at least
1 inch away from walls, ceiling and door.
About Children
and the Microwave
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.
The child must be able to reach the oven
comfortably;
if not, he/she should stand on a
sturdy stool.
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing
on the 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. See page 21 for Child Lock feature.
