The Cooking Rack (Part No. 8172101) gives you
extra space when cooking at more than one level in
your microwave oven.
Do not store the metal rack in the oven. Arcing and
damage to the oven could result if someone
accidentally starts the oven.
Do not operate the oven with the metal rack stored
on the floor of the oven. Damage to the interior
finish will result.
Do not use this rack in other cooking appliances.
Do not use rack with browning dish.
Do not place a metal cooking container directly on
the microwave oven rack. Place a microwave-safe
plate between the metal container and the rack to
prevent possible arcing and damage to the oven.
