COOKING COMPARISON GUIDE

UNDERSTANDING YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN

Cooking with your new oven offers a wide variety of food preparation options: microwave cooking. convection cooking. and combination cooking.

Microwave cooking uses very short. high-frequency radio waves. The movement of the microwaves through the food generates heat and cooks most foods faster than regular methods. while retaining their natural texture and moisture. Microwave cooking heats food directly. not the cookware or the interior of the oven.

Reheating is easy and defrosting is particularly convenient because less time is spent in food preparation.

Convection cooking constantly circulates heated air around the food. creating even browning and sealed-in flavor by the constant motion of hot air over the food surfaces.

Combination cooking combines microwave energy with convection to cook with speed and accuracy. while browning and crisping to perfection.

You can use microwave cooking. convection cooking. or combination cooking to cook by time. Simply preset the length of cooking time desired and your oven turns off automatically.

The following guide shows at a glance the difference between microwave. convection. and combination cooking.

MICROWAVE

Microwave energy is distributed evenly throughout the oven for fast. thorough cooking of food.

Microwave energy.

Heat produced within food by instant energy penetration.

• Fast. high efficiency cooking.

• Oven and surroundings do not get hot.

• Easy clean-up.

COOKING METHOD

HEAT SOURCE

HEAT CONDUCTION

BENEFITS

CONVECTION

Hot air circulates around food to produce browned exteriors and sealed-in juices.

Circulating heated air.

Heat conducted from outside of food to inside.

• Aids in browning and seals in flavor.

• Cooks some foods faster than regular ovens.

COMBINATION

Microwave energy and convection heat combine to cook foods in up to one-half the time of regular ovens. while browning and sealing in juices.

Microwave energy and circulating heated air.

Food heats from instant energy from penetration and heat conducted from outside of food.

• Shortened cooking time from microwave energy.

• Browning and crisping from convection heat.

Read this guide to learn the many different things your Microwave/Convection/Combination Oven can do.

You will find a wide variety of cooking methods and programs designed to suit your lifestyle.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN

COOKWARE GUIDE

Microwave Cooking Most heat-resistant. non-metallic cookware is safe for use in your microwave oven.

However. to test cookware before using. follow these steps: 1. Place the empty cookware in the microwave oven.

2. Measure 1 cup of water in a glass measuring cup and place it in the oven beside the cookware.

3. Microwave on 100% power for 1 minute. If the dish is warm. it should not be used for microwave cooking.

Convection Cooking

• Metal Pans are recommended for all types of baked products. but especially where browning or crusting is important.

• Dark or dull finish metal pans are best for breads and pies because they absorb heat and produce a crisper crust.

• Shiny aluminum pans are better for cakes. cookies. or muffins because these pans reflect heat and help produce a light. tender crust.

• Glass or glass-ceramic casserole or baking dishes are best suited for egg and cheese recipes due to the cleanability of glass.

Combination Cooking

• Glass or glass-ceramic baking containers are recommended. Be sure not to use items with metal trim as it may cause arcing (sparking) with oven wall or oven shelf. damaging the cookware. the shelf or the oven.

• Heat-resistant plastic microwave cookware (safe to 450°F) may be used. but is not recommended for foods that require crusting or all-around browning. because plastic is a poor conductor of heat.

TIPS FOR MICROWAVE COOKING

BROWNING Meat and poultry with high fat content cooked for at least 10 to 15 minutes will brown lightly. Foods cooked a shorter time can be brushed with a browning agent. such as Worcestershire sauce. soy sauce. or barbecue sauce.

COVERING A cover will trap heat and steam and cause the food to cook more quickly. Use a lid or microwave-safe plastic wrap with one corner folded back to vent the excess steam. Lids on glass casseroles can become hot during cooking; always handle carefully. Waxed paper will prevent the food from splattering in the oven and help retain heat. When warming bread items. use waxed paper. napkins. or paper towels. To absorb extra moisture. wrap sandwiches and fatty foods in paper towels.

SPACING Arrange individual foods. such as baked potatoes. cupcakes. and hors d’oeuvres in a circle and at least 1 inch apart. This will help the food cook more evenly.

STIRRING Stirring blends flavors and redistributes the heat in foods. Always stir from the outside toward the center of the dish. Food at the outside of the dish heats first.

TURNING Large foods. such as roasts and whole poultry. should be turned so that the top and bottom cook evenly. Also turn over chicken pieces and chops.

ARRANGEMENT Do not stack food. Arrange in a single layer in the dish for more even cooking. Because dense foods cook more slowly. place thicker portions of meat. poultry. fish. and vegetables toward the outside of the dish.

TESTING FOR DONENESS Foods cook quickly in a microwave oven; test frequently for doneness.

STANDING TIME Food often needs to stand from 2 to 15 minutes after being removed from the oven. Usually. you need to cover food during standing time to retain heat. Remove most foods when they are slightly undercooked and they will finish cooking during standing time. The internal temperature of food will rise about 10°F during standing time.

SHIELDING To prevent some portions of rectangular or square dishes from overcooking. you may need to shield them with small strips of aluminum foil to block the microwaves. You can also cover poultry legs and wing tips with foil to keep them from overcooking.

Always keep foil at least 1 inch from oven walls to prevent arcing.

PIERCING Pierce the shell. skin. or membrane of foods before cooking to prevent them from bursting. Foods that require piercing include yolks and whites of eggs. hot dogs. clams. oysters. and whole vegetables. such as potatoes and squash.

CLEANING

PRECAUTIONS

UNDERSTANDING YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN

• Place the front surface of the door three inches or more from the countertop edge to avoid accidental tipping of the microwave oven during normal use.

• To program the oven. make sure you touch the center of each pad firmly since the areas between the pads will not activate the oven. A tone will sound each time a pad is touched correctly. Do not touch several pads at once.

• Do not strike the control panel with silverware. cookware. etc. Breakage may occur.

• Always use caution when taking cookware out of the oven. Some dishes absorb heat from the cooked food and may be hot. See the “Cookware Guide” earlier in this section for more information.

• Do not rinse cookware immediately after cooking. This may cause breakage. Also. always allow the turntable to cool before removing it from the oven.

• Never operate the oven when it is empty. Food or water should always be in the oven during operation to absorb the microwave energy.

• Do not use the oven to dry newspapers or clothes.

They may catch fire.

• Use thermometers that have been approved for microwave oven cooking.

• The turntable must always be in place when you operate the oven.

• Do not use your microwave oven to cook eggs in the shell. Pressure can build up inside the shell. causing it to burst.

• There are several precautions to follow when microwaving popcorn: — Do not pop popcorn. except in a microwave-safe container or commercial packages designed for microwave ovens. — Never try to pop popcorn in a paper bag that is not microwave-approved. — Overcooking may result in smoke and fire. — Do not repop unpopped kernels. — Do not reuse popcorn bags. — Listen while corn pops. Stop oven when popping slows to 2-3 seconds between pops. — Do not leave microwave unattended while popping corn. — Follow directions on bag.

NOTE: Before cleaning the oven. unplug the power cord. If this is impossible. open the oven door to prevent an accidental oven start.

INTERIOR Wipe the oven inside and outside with a soft cloth and a mild detergent solution. Then rinse and wipe dry. This should be done weekly or more often. if needed. Never use cleaning powders or rough pads.

Excessive oil splatters on the inside top will be difficult to remove if left for many days. Wipe splatters with a wet paper towel. especially after cooking chicken or bacon.

REMOVABLE PARTS The turntable and rotating ring are removable. They should be hand-washed in warm (not hot) water with a mild detergent and a soft cloth. Once they are clean. rinse well and dry with a soft cloth. Never use cleaning powders. steel wool. or rough pads.

• The turntable may be cleaned at the sink. Be careful not to chip or scratch the edges as this may cause the turntable to break during use.

• The rotating ring should be cleaned regularly.

DOOR For best performance and safety. the inner door panel and the oven front frame should be free of food or grease buildup. Wipe often with a mild detergent; then rinse and wipe dry. Never use cleaning powders or rough pads.

AUTO/TIME DEFROST

The Auto/Time Defrost feature gives you two ways to defrost frozen foods. Touch Auto/Time Defrost once for Auto Defrost or twice for Time Defrost.

AUTO DEFROST

Four defrost choices are preset in the oven. The defrost feature provides you with the best defrosting method for frozen foods. The Auto Defrost list shows which defrost setting is recommended for the food you are defrosting. With the Auto Defrost feature. the oven automatically sets the defrosting times for each food item according to the weight you enter. For added convenience. the Auto Defrost includes a built-in tone mechanism that reminds you to check. turn over. separate. or rearrange the food during the defrost cycle. Four different defrosting levels are provided.

1. MEAT 2. POULTRY 3. FISH 4. BREAD

After touching the Auto/Time Defrost pad once. select the food category by touching a number pad: 1 (MEAT).

2 (Poultry). 3 (Fish). and 4 (Bread). Available weights for Meat. Poultry and Fish are 0.1 to 6.0 lbs (0.1 to 4.0kgs). The available weight for Bread is 0.1 to 1 lb (0.1 to 0.5kg).

For best results:

• Remove fish. shellfish. meat. and poultry from its original closed paper or plastic package (wrapper).

Otherwise. the wrap will hold steam and juice close to the foods. which can cause the outer surface of the foods to cook.

• Form the meat into the shape of a doughnut before freezing. When defrosting. scrape off thawed meat when the beep sounds and continue defrosting.

• Place foods in a shallow glass baking dish or on a microwave roasting rack to catch drippings.

• Foods should still be somewhat icy in the center when removed from the oven.

NOTE: After you touch Start/Pause. the display counts down the defrost time. The oven will beep once during the Defrost cycle. At this time. open the door and turn. separate. or rearrange the food as needed. Remove any portions that have thawed then return frozen portions to the oven and touch Start/Pause to resume the defrost cycle. The oven will not STOP during the BEEP unless the door is opened.

TIPS FOR CONVECTION COOKING

This section gives you cooking instructions and procedures for operating each convection function.

Please read these instructions carefully.

Convection cooking circulates hot air through the oven cavity with a fan. The constantly moving air surrounds the food to heat the outer portion quickly. creating even browning and sealed-in flavor by the constant motion of hot air over the food surfaces. Your oven uses convection cooking whenever you use the Convection Command Pads.

DO NOT USE THE OVEN WITHOUT THE TURNTABLE IN PLACE.

1. You can cook food with the Metal Cooking Rack on the turntable.

2. Do not cover turntable or metal rack with aluminum foil. It interferes with the flow of air that cooks the food.

3. Round pizza pans are excellent cooking utensils for many convection-only items.

Choose pans that do not have extended handles.

4. Use convection cooking for items like soufflés. breads. cookies. angel food cakes. pizza. and for some meat and fish cooking.

5. You do not need to use any special techniques to adapt your favorite oven recipes to convection cooking; however. you may need to lower some temperatures or reduce some cooking times from the convection oven cooking directions. See examples in the charts in this section.

6. When baking cakes. cookies. breads. rolls. or other baked foods. most recipes call for preheating. Preheat the empty oven just as you do a regular oven. You can start heavier dense foods such as meats. casseroles. and poultry without preheating.

7. All heatproof cookware or metal utensils can be used in convection cooking.

8. As in conventional cooking. the distance of the food from the heat source affects cooking results. Refer to the charts in this Use and Care Guide.

9. Use metal utensils only for convection cooking. Never use for microwave or combination cooking since arcing and damage to the oven may occur.

10. After preheating. if you do not open the door. the oven will automatically hold at the preheated temperature for 30 minutes.

PRECAUTIONS

• The oven cavity. door. turntable. rotating ring. metal racks. and cooking utensils will become very hot.

USE THICK OVEN GLOVES when removing the food. cooking utensil. metal rack. and turntable from the oven after convection cooking.

• Do not use lightweight plastic containers. plastic wraps. or paper products during any convection cycle.

• The temperature range has 10 steps from 225°F to 450°F including 100°F (dough rising).

• Use More/Less to increase/decrease the temperature by 25°F after touching the Convection. (The default temperature is 350°F.)

CONVECTION COOKING GUIDE

1. Always use metal accessory rack when convection baking. (See page 6.) 2. Aluminum pans conduct heat quickly. For most convection baking. light. shiny finishes give best results because they prevent overbrowning in the time it takes to cook the center areas. Pans with dull (satin-finish) bottoms are recommended for cake pans and pie pans for best bottom browning.

3. Dark or non-shiny finishes. glass. and pyroceram absorb heat which may result in dry. crisp crusts.

4. Preheating the oven is recommended when baking foods by convection.

5. To prevent uneven heating and save energy. open the oven door to check food as little as possible.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR COMBINATION OVEN

TIPS FOR COMBINATION COOKING

This section gives you instructions to operate each combination cooking function. Please read these instructions carefully. Sometimes combination microwave-convection cooking is suggested to get the best cooking results since it shortens the cooking time for foods that normally need a long time to cook. This cooking process also leaves meats juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. In combination cooking. the convection heat and microwave energy alternate automatically. Your oven has two preprogrammed settings that make it easy to cook with both convection heat and microwave energy automatically.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR COMBINATION COOKING

1. Meats may be roasted directly on the metal rack or in a shallow roasting pan placed on the rack. When using the metal rack. please check your cooking chart for information on proper use.

2. Less tender cuts of beef can be roasted and tenderized using oven cooking bags.

3. When baking. check for doneness after cooking time is up. If not completely done. let stand in oven for a few minutes to complete cooking.

PRECAUTIONS

1. All cookware used for combination cooking must be BOTH microwave-safe and ovenproof.

2. During combination baking. some baking cookware may cause arcing when it comes in contact with the oven walls or metal accessory racks. Arcing is a discharge of electricity that occurs when microwaves come in contact with metal. — If arcing occurs. place a heatproof dish between the pan and the metal rack. — If arcing occurs with other baking cookware. do not use them for combination cooking.

HEATING/REHEATING GUIDE

To heat or reheat successfully in a microwave oven. it is important to follow several guidelines. Measure the amount of food in order to determine the time needed to reheat. Arrange the food in a circular pattern for best results. Room temperature food will heat faster than refrigerated food. Canned foods should be taken out of the can and placed in a microwave-safe container. The food will heat more evenly if covered with a microwave-safe lid or vented plas tic wrap. Remove cover carefully to prevent steam burns. Use the following chart as a guide for reheating cooked food.

Questions and Answers

Operation

Question

Why is the oven light not on during cooking?

Why does steam come out of the air exhaust vent?

Will the microwave oven be damaged if it operates empty?

Does microwave energy pass through the viewing screen in the door?

Why does a tone sound when a pad on the control panel is touched?

Can my microwave oven be damaged if food is cooked for too long?

When the oven is plugged into wall outlet for the first time. it might not work properly.

What is wrong?

Why do I see light reflection around the outer case?

What are the various sounds I hear when the microwave oven is operating?

There may be several reasons why the oven light is not on.

Have you:

• Set a cook time?

• Touched START?

Steam is normally produced during cooking. The microwave oven has been designed to vent this steam.

Yes. Never operate the oven empty or without the glass turntable.

No. The metal screen bounces the energy back to the oven cavity.

The holes (or ports) allow only light to pass through. They do not let microwave energy pass through.

The tone tells you that the setting has been entered.

Like any other cooking appliance. it is possible to overcook food to the point that the food creates smoke and even possibly fire and damage to the inside of the oven. It is always best to be near the oven while you are cooking.

The microcomputer controlling your oven may temporarily become scrambled and fail to function as programmed when you plug in for the first time or when power resumes after a power interruption. Unplug the oven from the 120-volt household outlet and then plug it back in to reset the microcomputer.

This light is from the oven light which is located between the oven cavity and the outer wall of the oven.

The clicking sound is caused by a mechanical switch turning the microwave oven’s magnetron ON and OFF.

The heavy hum and clunk is from the change in power the magnetron draws as it is turned ON and OFF by a mechanical switch. The change in blower speed is from the change in line voltage caused by the magnetron being turned ON and OFF.

Question Answer

What is wrong when baked foods have a hard. dry. brown spot?

Why do eggs sometimes pop?

A hard. dry. brown spot indicates overcooking. Shorten the cooking or reheating time.

When baking. frying. or poaching eggs. the yolk may pop due to steam build-up inside the yolk membrane. To prevent this. simply pierce the yolk before cooking.

CAUTION: Never microwave eggs in the shell.

Questions and Answers (continued)

Food

Question

Why are scrambled eggs sometimes a little dry after cooking?

Is it possible to pop popcorn in a microwave oven?

Why do baked apples sometimes burst during cooking?

Why do baked potatoes sometimes burn during cooking?

Why is a standing time recommended after microwave cooking time is over?

Why is additional time required for cooking food stored in the refrigerator?

Eggs will dry out when they are overcooked. even if the same recipe is used each time. The cooking time may need to be varied for one of these reasons:

• Eggs vary in size.

• Eggs are at room temperature one time and at refrigerator temperature another time.

• Eggs continue cooking during standing time.

Yes. if using one of the two methods described below: (1) microwave-popping devices designed specifically for microwave cooking (2) prepackaged commercial microwave popcorn that is made for specific times and power output needed Follow exact directions given by each manufacturer for its popcorn popping product and do not leave the oven unattended while the corn is being popped. If corn fails to pop after the suggested time. discontinue cooking.

Overcooking could result in an oven fire.

CAUTION:

• Never use a brown paper bag for popping corn or attempt to pop leftover kernels.

• Do not pop prepackaged commercial microwave popcorn directly on the glass turntable. To avoid excessive heating of the glass turntable. place the popcorn bag on a plate.

• Listen while corn pops. Stop oven when popping slows to 2-3 seconds between pops.

• Do not leave microwave unattended while popping corn.

• Follow directions on bag.

The peel has not been removed from the top half of each apple to allow for expansion of the interior of the apple during cooking. As in conventional cooking methods. the interior of the apple expands during the cooking process.

If the cooking time is too long. fire could result. At the end of the recommended cooking time. potatoes should be slightly firm.

CAUTION: Do not overcook.

Standing time allows foods to continue cooking evenly for a few minutes after the actual microwave oven cooking cycle. The amount of standing time depends upon the density of the foods.

As in conventional cooking. the initial temperature of food affects total cooking time. You need more time to cook food taken out of a refrigerator than for food at room temperature.
