Below are the amounts of food we recommend you apply the Warm and Hold function to by Food Type. Food type Liquid Dry Recommended Quantity 1-2 cups 5-10 oz. MICROWAVE-SAFE UTENSILS If you are not sure whether an item is microwave-safe or not, you can perform the following simple test: 1. Place 1 cup of water (in a glass-measuring cup) inside your oven next to the item to be tested. 2. Press the Add 30 Sec. button twice to heat them both for one minute at high power. After one minute, the water should be warm and the item you are testing should be cool. If the dish is warm, then it is absorbing microwave energy and is not microwavesafe.

Can be used to retain moisture and prevent spattering. Use only those marked Microwave-safe and follow the directions. Check the temperature in several places. You can use conventional thermometers once the food has been removed from the oven. Use only for short-term heating, as these materials can be flammable. Porcelain, pottery, glazed earthenware and bone china are usually suitable, unless decorated with a metal trim. cooking guide Microwave energy actually penetrates food and is attracted and absorbed by the water, fat and sugar in the food. The microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move rapidly. The rapid movement of these molecules creates friction and the resulting heat cooks the food. GENERAL MICROWAVE TIPS Dense foods, such as potatoes, take longer to heat than lighter foods. Foods with a delicate texture should be heated at a low power level to prevent them from becoming tough. Foods with a non-porous skin such as potatoes or hot dogs, should be pierced to prevent bursting. Putting heating oil or fat in the microwave is not recommended. Fat and oil can suddenly boil over and cause severe burns. Some ingredients heat faster than others. For example, the jelly in a jelly doughnut will be hotter than the dough. Keep this in mind to avoid burns. The altitude and the type of cookware you are using can affect the cooking time. When trying a new recipe, use the minimum cooking time and check the food occasionally to prevent overcooking. Home canning in the microwave oven is not recommended because not all harmful bacteria may be destroyed by the microwave heating process. Although microwaves do not heat the cookware, the heat from the food is often transferred to the cookware. Always use pot holders when removing food from the microwave and instruct children to do the same. Making candy in the microwave is not recommended as candy can be heated to very high temperatures. Keep this in mind to avoid injury. Cooking techniques If the oven is set to cook for more than 20 minutes, it will automatically adjust to 70 percent power after 20 minutes to avoid overcooking. Stirring Open the microwave door and stir foods such as casseroles and vegetables occasionally while cooking to distribute heat evenly. Food at the outside of the dish absorbs more energy and heats more quickly, so stir from the outside towards the center. The oven will turn off when you open the door to stir your food. Arrangement Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or chops, with the thicker, meatier parts toward the outside of the turntable where they can receive more microwave energy. To prevent overcooking, place thin or delicate parts towards the center of the turntable. Shielding Shield food with narrow strips of aluminum foil to prevent overcooking. Areas that need shielding include poultry wing-tips, the ends of poultry legs, and corners of square baking dishes. Use only small amounts of aluminum foil. Larger amounts can damage your oven. cooking guide _17 COOKING GUIDE
