Boil & Simmer
Boil & Simmer is a sensor function.
See "Cook Method Chart" for specific food items and amounts.
Follow recommended water and food amounts that appear
on the display.
Use a microwave-safe dish with a loose-fitting lid.
For best results, do not use plastic wrap as a cover during the
Boil & Simmer cycle.
Do not remove the lid while the dish is still in the microwave
oven, as the rush of steam will disrupt the sensor readings.
To Use: Place food on the turntable, and close the door. Touch
"Cook Method" on Main Menu, touch "Boil & Simmer," and then
follow screen prompts to make your selections, prepare your
food for simmering, and start the cycle.
Simmering Pasta
The water will need to boil before adding the pasta. Place the
dish of water, covered, in the microwave oven and begin the
cycle. When the water boils, the microwave oven will stop and
prompt you to add the pasta. If manually simmering, place the
covered dish of water in the microwave oven, and set a simmer
time of 1 second. The water will start to boil, the 1-second
simmer time will end, and the microwave oven will stop.
Using oven mitts, gently remove the covered dish of boiling
water, add the pasta, re-cover, place the dish back in the
microwave oven and continue the cycle.
Simmering Rice
Place food and water/liquid, covered, in the microwave oven and
begin the cycle. The sensor determines when the water starts to
boil, and figures the simmer time, which will begin counting down
in the display.

Browning Pan
The Browning Pan function uses the specially designed browning
pan (provided with microwave oven) to brown, crisp, and pan-fry
foods in the microwave oven. While microwaves heat food from
above, they also heat the pan very quickly from below to brown
and crisp the food.
Some Browning Pan cycles are programmed to preheat the
empty pan for 3 minutes before cooking begins. When the
preheating cycle is complete, the microwave oven will stop and
prompt you to add the food to the browning pan. The microwave
oven may prompt you to turn over the food during the cycle.
See "Cook Method Chart" for specific food items and amounts.
Microwave oven cavity and door will become very hot during
the Browning Pan cycle. The use of oven mitts is
recommended.
The browning pan will become very hot. Use oven mitts to
grasp and remove the pan from the microwave oven. To avoid
damage, do not place hot browning pan directly on heat-
sensitive surfaces.
Use detachable handle when handling hot browning pan.
Do not use plastic utensils on the browning pan, as it
becomes very hot quickly and could melt the utensils.
To avoid scratching the browning pan, do not use metal
utensils.
To avoid damage to the browning pan, do not use the
browning pan in any other microwave oven or in a standard
thermal oven.
For best results, coat the browning pan lightly with cooking
oil to make removing food and cleaning the pan easier.
To Use: Place food on the turntable, and close the door. Touch
"Cook Method" on Main Menu, touch "Browning Pan," and then
follow screen prompts to make your selections, prepare the food
and/or browning pan for cooking, and start the cycle.
