About microwave energy

Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves. The magnetron built into the oven generates microwaves which cook or reheat food without deforming or discolouring it.

  1. The microwaves generated by the magnetron are distributed uniformly by the microwave's distribution system. This is why the food cooks evenly.
  2. The microwaves are absorbed by the food to a depth of approx. 1 inch (2.5 cm). Then, the microwaves dissipate inside the food as cooking continues.
  3. The cooking time is affected by the following conditions of the food:
    • Quantity and density
    • Moisture content
    • Initial temperature (especially, when frozen)

NOTE: The cooked food retains heat in its core after cooking is complete. This is why you must observe the standing times specified in this manual, which ensures food cooks evenly down to the core.

Cookware for microwaving

Cookware used for Microwave Mode must allow microwaves to pass through and penetrate food. Metals such as stainless steel, aluminum, and copper reflect microwaves. Therefore, do not use cookware made of metallic materials. Cookware marked microwave - safe is always safe for use. For additional information on appropriate cookware, refer to the following guide.

Requirements:

  • Flat bottom and straight sides
  • Tight-fitting lid
  • Well-balanced pan with handles that weigh less than the main pan
