Thank you for purchasing your new Kenwood Microwave. These operating instructions will help you use it properly and safely. We recommend that you spend some time reading this instruction manual in order that you fully understand all the operational features it offers.
getting ready This microwave is designed for home use only. It should not be used for commercial catering. 1. After unpacking your microwave, check that it has not been damaged whilst in the box. Make sure there are no dents, and the door closes properly. A damaged microwave could allow microwave energy to escape.
introducing microwave cooking Always remember the basic safeguards you would follow when using any cooking equipment or handling hot food. This page gives some of the basic guidelines for microwave cooking. If you are unfamiliar with using a microwave, there is more information at the back of this instruction manual. cooking with a microwave Cooking with a microwave is much faster than conventional cooking and, whilst you should make sure that food is fully cooked, you should be careful not to overcook it.
checking your cooking utensils Most heat-resistant, non-metallic cooking utensils are safe to use in your microwave. If made of plastic or glass, utensils will be marked as “microwave safe” or similar. If you are not sure and/or there is no microwave-safe marking on the utensil, do NOT use it in the microwave.
materials that can be used in the microwave utensils remarks Aluminum foil Shielding only. Small smooth pieces can be used to cover thin parts of meat or poultry to prevent overcooking. Arcing can occur if foil is too close to oven walls.
microwave heating categories Your microwave has been tested and labelled to meet the UK government’s voluntary agreement on the reheating of pre-cooked food. The heating characteristics and output power levels of microwaves are usually calculated using a relatively large portion of food (a 1000 gram load, IEC 60705) but many packs of pre-cooked food are sold in smaller packs, often about 350 grams.
steam When you microwave food, steam is created as water in the food heats up and evaporates. The steam formed during microwave cooking is entirely safe. It has to escape from the microwave to prevent pressure from building up inside the microwave. It does this through the vents on the back of the microwave and from around the door.
