Sensor Cooking

A sensor in the microwave oven detects humidity released from
the food as it heats, and adjusts the cook time accordingly.
Many sensor cycles require the covering of foods. Microwave-
safe containers or steamers with loose-fitting lids are
recommended. The loose-fitting lid allows enough steam to
escape to be detected by the sensor. When covering foods with
plastic wrap, be sure to leave a large enough vent opening to
allow the steam to escape.
NOTES:
The microwave oven should be plugged in for at least
3 minutes.
The microwave oven cavity and the exterior of the cooking
container should be dry.
The room temperature should not exceed 95°F (35°C).
If the door is opened during a sensor cycle, sensing will stop
and the program will be canceled.

Sensor Cook

The sensor in the microwave oven detects humidity released
from the food and automatically sets a cooking time based on the
selected food category.
