FOOD HANDLING & PREPARATION
SUITABLE COOKWARE (Continued)
Face & Hands: Always use oven gloves to remove food or cookware from the oven. Stand back
when opening the oven door to allow heat or steam to disperse. When removing covers (such as
cling -film), opening roasting bags or popcorn packaging, direct steam away from face and hands.
Stir, turn & stand:
For even cooking stir, turn or rearrange food during
cooking. Where recommended, leave food to stand
after cooking or defrosting.
Initial and final temperature of food:
The initial temperature of food affects the amount of
cooking time needed, eg. chilled food requires more
cooking than food at room temperature.
The temperature of the container is not a true
indication of the temperature of the food or drink. Cut
into foods with fillings, for example, jam doughnuts, to
release heat or steam.
Always place on an up-turned plate on the
turntable to prevent heat stress. Follow
manufacturer's instructions. Be careful as these
become very hot. Popcorn: Only use
microwave popcorn within recommended
packaging (follow popcorn manufacturer's
instructions). Never use oil unless the
manufacturer recommends and never cook for
longer than instructed.
Use small pieces of aluminium foil to shield food
from overheating. Keep foil at least 2cm from the
oven walls. Foil containers are not recommended
unless specified by the manufacturer, eg.
MicroFoil ®, follow instructions carefully.
The metal racks supplied have been specially
designed for all cooking modes and will not
damage the oven.
