Guidelines for Use
The Auto Weight Programmes are designed to take the guesswork out of cooking or reheating your food. They must ONLY be used for foods
1. Only cook foods within the weight ranges described (see table below).
2. Only use the accessories as indicated on pages 35 and 36.
3. Do NOT cover food unless stated, as programmes 5 - 16 use a Combination of Microwave and Grill and/or Convection, and it will prevent the
food from browning. The heat of the grill and/or oven will also melt any plastic covering.
4. Most foods benefit from a STANDING time after cooking on an Auto Programme, to allow heat to continue conducting to the centre.
5. To allow for some variations that occur in food, check that food is thoroughly cooked and piping hot before serving.
6. ALWAYS weigh the chicken, DO NOT rely on the packet weight. Remove leg tips if necessary for easy rotation of large chickens.
