Parts and Features not shown: Turntable

The microwave system delivers a constant stream of microwave power - true high. medium and low power.

Typically. icrowave ovens operate on HIGH power only. For example. to achieve a 50% power level ("medium") in a typical microwave oven. the oven operates 50% of the time at HIGH power and 50% of the time OFR

In contrast. microwave ovens utilizing this microwave system deliver the selected power level continuously.

This constant stream of microwave power helps to minimize overcooking of foods and messy food spatters.

Sensor Cooking

The microwave system features the 6th SENSE TM cooking system. A humidity sensor in the oven cavity detects moisture and humidity emitted from food as it heats. The sensor adjusts cooking times to various types and amounts of food. Sensor cooking takes the guesswork out of microwave cooking.

MICROWAVE OVEN USE

A magnetron in the oven produces microwaves which reflect off the metal floor. walls and ceiling and pass through the turntable and appropriate cookware to the food. Microwaves are attracted to and absorbed by fat. sugar and water molecules in the food. causing them to move. producing friction and heat which cooks the food.

Do not lean on or allow children to swing on the oven door.

Do not operate microwave oven when it is empty.

The turntable must be in place and correct side up when oven is in use. Do not use if turntable is chipped or broken.

See "Assistance or Service" section to reorder.

Baby bottles and baby food jars should not be heated in the oven.

Clothes. flowers. fruit. herbs. wood. gourds. paper. including brown paper bags and newspaper should not be dried in the oven.

Do not use the microwave oven for canning. sterilizing or deep frying. The oven cannot maintain appropriate temperatures.

Paraffin wax will not melt in the oven because it does not absorb microwaves.

Use oven mitts or pot holders when removing containers from oven.

Do not overcook potatoes.

At the end of the recommended cook time. potatoes should be slightly firm. Let potatoes stand for 5 minutes. They will finish cooking while standing.

Do not cook or reheat whole eggs inside the shell. Steam buildup in whole eggs may cause them to burst. Cover poached eggs and allow a standing time.

Covering Covering food helps retain moisture. shorten cook time and reduce spattering.

Use the lid supplied with cookware.

If a lid is not available. wax paper. paper towels or plastic wrap approved for microwave ovens may be used. Plastic wrap should be turned back at one corner to provide an opening to vent steam.

Condensation on the door and cavity surfaces is normal during heavy cooking.

Stirring and Turning Stirring and turning redistributes heat evenly to avoid overcooking the outer edges of food. Stir from outside to center.

If possible. turn food over from bottom to top.

Arranging If heating irregularly shaped or different sized foods. the thinner parts and smaller sizes should be arranged toward the center. If cooking several items of the same size and shape. place them in a ring pattern. leaving the center of the ring empty.

Piercing Before heating. use a fork or small knife to pierce or prick foods that have a skin or membrane. such as potatoes. egg yolks. chicken livers. hot dogs. and sausage.

Prick in several places to allow steam to vent.

Shielding Use small. flat pieces of aluminum foil to shield the thin pieces of irregularly shaped foods. bones and foods such as chicken wings. leg tips and fish tail. See "Aluminum Foil and Metal" first.

When microwave cooking. the amount. size and shape. starting temperature. composition and density of the food affect cooking results.

Standing Time Food will continue to cook by the natural conduction of heat even after the microwave cycle ends. The length of standing time depends on the volume and density of the food.

Amount of Food

The more food heated at once. the longer the cook time. Check for doneness and add small increments of time if necessary.

Size and Shape Smaller pieces of food will cook more quickly than larger pieces. and uniformly shaped foods cook more evenly than irregularly shaped food.

Starting Temperature Room temperature foods will heat faster than refrigerated foods. and refrigerated foods will heat faster than frozen foods.

Composition and Density Foods high in fat and sugar will reach a higher temperature and heat faster than other foods. Heavy. dense foods. such as meat and potatoes. require a longer cook time than the same size of a light. porous food. such as cake.
