•Open the door.
•Place meal or liquid and suitable container on the rotation plate. Place the thickest parts of the meal on the
sides of the container or plate.
Covering meals
•Cover meals with a suitable cover to allow equal distribution of heat. This also prevents squirting or drying
of meals.
Protecting meals
•Thin pieces of meat or poultry should be covered by a suitable foil to prevent excessive heating.
Stirring meals
•If possible, stir once or twice from the outside towards the centre of the meal or liquid.
Moving or flipping meals
allow children to use the microwave unsupervised.

use and possible dangers involved.
•Never connect the device to an improperly installed electric outlet. Check whether the power supply is
compatible to device, as specified on the devices labels.
•To avoid danger, a damaged power cable should only be replaced by a properly trained service technician.
•Repairs of the device should only be conducted by a service technician trained by the manufacturer.
Improper repairs may cause considerable danger for the user. Warning: It is very dangerous for anyone

•This product is an ISM-Device of group 2 class B. Group 2 incorporates all ISM-devices (industrial,
medical and scientific) in which radio frequency energy is produced, and/or any form of exposure of
materials by electromagnetic radiation is used, as well as spark erosion devices. Class B incorporates
device that are intended for household use or that are used to feed the power supply of households.
Suitability of plates and utensils
•Only use plates and utensils that are marked as suitable for use in a microwave.
•Plates or bowls made from glass, porcelain, stone, ceramics, glass ceramics or heat-resistant synthetics is
suitable for use in a microwave. The use of transparent materials is preferable. Round containers are better
suitable than angled ones as meals tend to overheat in corners.
•Never place recycled paper in the microwave as this may contain tiny metal pieces that can cause sparks.
•Do not place anything made of, or containing gold or silver components, as this may cause sparks and will
ruin the metals.
•Never use sealed metal containers. Microwaves are deflected off the metal which may cause sparks.
Open, shallow containers made of metal such as tin-foil containers commonly provided for microwaveable
food may be used to warm instant meals.
•Tin-foil may be used in small amounts to cover tender parts of a meal such as when de-freezing poultry.
Make sure that the tin-foil cannot touch the sides of the microwave in any way. Try to keep a minimum
distance of 30mm from the sides of the microwave.
•Containers made of wood should not be used. When exposed to microwaves, wood can dry out and
