WARNING
Food Poisoning Hazard
Do not let food sit in oven more than one hour before
or after cooking.
Doing so can result in food poisoning or sickness.
Hot cooked food can be kept warm in the microwave oven. The
Keep Warm function uses 10% cook power. Keep Warm can be
used by itself, or it can be programmed to follow a cooking cycle.
Opening the door during Keep Warm will cancel the function.
Cover plates of food.
Cover foods that were covered while being cooked.
Do not cover baked goods such as pastries, pies, turnovers,
etc.
IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and the microwave oven is cool. Always follow label instructions on
cleaning products.
Soap, water and a soft cloth or sponge are suggested unless otherwise noted.
GREASE FILTERS
Do not use ammonia or corrosive cleaning agents such as lye-
based oven cleaners.
Hot water and mild detergent:
Soak filters, then scrub and swish to remove embedded dirt
and grease. Rinse well and shake to dry.
Dishwasher:
Wash separately, not with dirty dishes, because food can be
trapped in the filters.
MICROWAVE OVEN CAVITY
To avoid damage to the microwave oven cavity, do not use soap-
filled scouring pads, abrasive cleaners, steel-wool pads, gritty
washcloths or some recycled paper towels.
The area where the microwave oven door and frame touch when
closed should be kept clean.
Average soil
Mild, nonabrasive soaps and detergents:
Rinse with clean water and dry with soft, lint-free cloth.
Heavy soil
Mild, nonabrasive soaps and detergents:
Heat 1 cup (250 mL) of water for 2 to 5 minutes in microwave
oven. Steam will soften soil. Rinse with clean water and dry
with soft, lint-free cloth.
