To Test Cookware/Dinnerware: Place dish in microwave oven with 1 cup (250 mL) of water beside it. Program 1 minute of cook time at
100%. If dish becomes hot and the water stays cool, do not use the dish in the microwave oven.

Microwave Oven Use

For list of preset programs, see the Cooking Guide label on the front facing of the microwave oven opening, behind the door.

Manual Cooking/Stage Cooking

Touch COOK TIME, touch number pads to enter time, touch
COOK POWER (if not 100%), touch number pads to enter power
level (10-90), then touch the Start control.

If programming additional stages (up to three), touch OPTIONS/
CLOCK to enter programming for the next stage, then enter the
cook time and cook power of each, then touch the Start control.

Sensor Cooking

A sensor in the microwave oven detects moisture released from
food as it heats, and adjusts the cooking time accordingly.

Make sure microwave oven has been plugged in for at least
1 minute. Use microwave-safe dish with loose-fitting lid, or cover
microwave-safe dish with plastic wrap and vent. For optimal
performance, wait at least 30 minutes after convection cooking or
grilling (on some models) before sensor cooking.

Add More Time

At the end of any cycle, “PRESS 0 TO ADD MORE TIME” scrolls in
the display. Enter the additional time, if desired, and start the
microwave oven. The cook power for all non-sensor cycles will be
the same as in the finished cycle, but may be changed. If Add More
Time is used after a sensor cycle, the cook power will be 100%,
but may be changed.


Adjust doneness for automatic cooking functions by touching
COOK TIME repeatedly to scroll through “NORMAL,” “MORE
DONE” or “LESS DONE” within the first 20 seconds of starting the
cook cycle. Doneness cannot be adjusted for Defrost functions.

Warm Hold

Hot cooked food can be kept warm in the microwave oven. The
Warm Hold function uses 10% cook power. Warm Hold can be
used by itself or can be programmed to follow a cooking cycle.
Opening the door during Warm Hold will cancel the function.


Food Poisoning Hazard

Do not let food sit in oven more than one hour before
or after cooking.

Doing so can result in food poisoning or sickness.
