If dish becomes hot and the water stays cool, do not use the dish in the microwave oven.

Microwave Oven Use

For list of preset programs, see the Quick Reference Guide provided with your model.
Manual Cooking/Stage Cooking
Touch COOK TIME/POWER, touch number pads to enter time, touch
COOK TIME/POWER again (if not 100%), touch number pads to enter
power level (10-90), and then touch the Start control.
If programming additional stages (up to three), touch SETUP/CLOCK
to enter programming for the next stage, enter the cook time and cook
power of each, and then touch the Start control.
Sensor Cooking
A sensor in the microwave oven detects moisture released from food
as it heats, and adjusts the cooking time accordingly.
Make sure microwave oven has been plugged in for at least 1 minute.
Use microwave-safe dish with loose-fitting lid, or cover microwave-
safe dish with plastic wrap and vent. For optimal performance, wait at
least 30 minutes after convection cooking or grilling (on some models)
before sensor cooking.
Add More Time
At the end of any cycle using less than 100% cook power, "PRESS 0
TO ADD MORE TIME" scrolls in the display. Enter the additional time, if
desired, and start the microwave oven. The cook power for all non-
sensor cycles will be the same as in the finished cycle, but may be
changed. If Add More Time is used after a sensor cycle, the cook
power will be 100%, but may be changed.
For Use With Convection/Combination Cycles (on some models):
Metal bakeware may be used only during convection (bake)
cycles. Use ovenproof, microwave-safe cookware for all other
convection and combination cycles.
Do Not Use
Metal cookware and bakeware
Straw or wicker
Gold, silver or pewter
Non-approved meat thermometers, skewers
Twist ties
Foil liners, such as sandwich wrappers
Objects with gold or silver trim or with metallic glaze
Adjust doneness for automatic cooking functions by touching COOK
TIME/POWER repeatedly to scroll through "NORMAL," "MORE
DONE" or "LESS DONE" within the first 20 seconds of starting the
cook cycle. Doneness cannot be adjusted for Defrost functions.
Keep Warm
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 can be programmed to follow a cooking cycle. Opening the
door during Keep Warm will cancel the function.
