•Incorrect operation and improper use can damage the appliance and cause injury to the user.
•The appliance may be used only for it’s intended purpose. No responsibility can be taken for any possible
damage caused through incorrect use or improper handling.
•Before connecting the appliance to the power source, check that the current and power match those given
on the rating plate.
•Do not put the appliance or the plug in water or any other liquid. However should the appliance accidentally
fall into water, unplug the appliance immediately and have it checked by a qualified person before using it
again. Non-observance could cause a fatal electric shock!
•Never attempt to open the housing yourself.
•Do not place any kind of object into the inside of the housing.
•Do not use the appliance with wet hands, on a damp floor or when the appliance itself is wet.
•Do not touch the plug with wet or damp hands.
•Check the cord and the plug regularly for any possible damage. If the cord or plug is damaged, it must be
replaced by the manufacturer or a qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
•Do not use the appliance if it is dropped or otherwise damaged or if the cord or plug are damaged. In the
case of damage, take the appliance to an electrical repair shop for examination and repair if necessary.
•Never attempt to repair the appliance yourself. This could cause an electric shock!
•Do not allow the cord to hang over sharp edges and keep it well away from hot objects and naked flames.
Remove the plug from the socket only by holding the plug.
•For extra protection it is possible to fit the electric household installation with a fault current breaker with a
rated breaking current of not more than 30mA. Ask your electrician for advice.
•Make sure that there is no danger that the cord or extension cord may inadvertently be pulled or cause
anyone to trip when in use.
•If an extension cord is used it must be suited to the power consumption of the appliance, otherwise
overheating of the extension cord and/or plug may occur.
•This appliance is not suitable for commercial use nor for use in the open air.
•Never leave the appliance unattended while it is in use.
•Children cannot recognise the dangers involved in the incorrect use of electrical appliances. Therefore never
allow children to use household appliances without supervision.
•Always remove the plug from the socket when the appliance is not in use and each time before it is cleaned.
Danger! Nominal voltage is still present in the appliance as long as the appliance is connected to the mains
•Switch the appliance off before disconnecting from the mains.
•Never use the cord to carry the appliance.
•At first use some minor smoke may develop, which is not a cause for concern. Always make sure that the
room in which device operates is adequately ventilated.
•Use this device only for the preparation of meals or drinks.
•Do not use this device to dry clothes, paper or other items.
•Do not store anything within the device.
•Only activate microwave when meals are in it.
•When in no-load-operation the device is heavily strained. This can cause damage to the device.
•Only activate the device with properly installed rotation plate.
•Remove all flammable packaging from any meals or drinks before heating. This can be a serious fire
hazard. Should smoke develop, immediately turn of the device and disconnect it from its power supply.
Leave the door closed to extinguish any potentially developing flames.
•When heating fluids be sure to remove any metal spoons or similar objects to prevent a boiling retardation.
When a boiling retardation occurs the normal boiling point is exceeded, without the fluid beginning to boil,
thus causing superheating. Consequently the slightest agitation of the fluid can cause it to suddenly begin
boiling. Danger of burning!
•Never heat your meals or drinks in sealed containers as these may explode.
•Foods with parings, such as tomatoes, potatoes or sausages should be broached before heating to
prevent them from bursting.
•Do not heat eggs that still have their shell with the microwave. The will heat quicker in their centre and may
explode. Broach the yolk of fried eggs before heating.
•Before heating baby food, remove any type of seal or pacifier. After heating, shake well to equally distribute
the warmth. Always check the temperature of the food before feeding it to a child.
•Always open any coverings of heated containers such as microwave proof foils, popcorn bags or
microwaveable plastic bags facing away from your face to prevent burns.
•To protect the rotation plate from breaking.
- Always allow time for cooling before cleaning it.
- Do not place hot meals or utensils on a cold rotation plate.
- Do not place frozen meals or utensils on a hot rotation plate.
•When heating meals the plates and utensils will be heated as well. Therefore always use oven gloves when
taking out your meal. Danger of burning!
•Children often do not realise the extent of danger involved in the use of electric devices. Therefore never
