ave Touch Control Panel 1 - THE TIME FUNCTIONS THE TEMPERATURE The oven lets you mic~owave by time in 2 different ways. Program Time Cook and Defrost with Hold for even greater flexibility. Use the automatic temperature probe to cook by temperature in 2 ways. Temperature Cook can be programmed with Hold for delayed start or with Defrost. Touch DEFROST and enter time for uniform defrosting with little or no attention. Automatic Power Level of 3 can be changed after time entry.
How to Defrost .” TIPS FOR DEFROSTING Foods frozen in paper or plastic can be defrosted right in the package. The Microwave Guide & Cookbook gives you special instructions for packaging and freezing foods which will be used in automatic 3step cooking programs. For even defrosting, many foods need to be turned over, rotated or broken up part way through the defrosting time. Let the oven remember for you. If you set the oven for the first time period, it will signal when food needs attention.

With your microwave oven, however, you preset the time and the oven turns off automatically. Using Your Oven to Time Cook Step 5: When time is up, oven signals. Oven, light, and fan shut off. Follow the cooking steps below to help you learn to Time Cook properly. Microwaving Tips Step 1: Fill a cup % full and 1 teaspoon of freeze fee.
. How to Temp Cook For many foods, temperature cooking (Temp Cook) is the most accurate method. Use it for cooking meatloaf, roasts and other foods where internal temperature is the best test of doneness. Use it to heat or reheat foods to precise serving temperature. It takes the guesswork out of cooking, because the oven shuts off automatically when food reaches the preset temperature. Temperature Cook gives Level of 10. After entering change power level.
THE MICRO-THERMOMETERTM PROBE LETS YOU COOK TO ACCURATE TEMPERATURE. the probe cable doesn’t interfere with door seal. Do not leave the probe in the oven if it is not inserted in food; this could cause damage to the oven. The Micro-Thermometer probe is essential when using both the Temperature Cook and Sim ‘N Cook TM controls. When temperature cooking, insert the probe at least one inch into the food which you are cooking.
— How to Use Sim ‘N CookTMControl loosely around the probe, allowing some space for venting (see pictures in your cookbook). Do not use the lids to your casseroles. Setting the oven to use the “Sire ‘N Cook” control is easy. You don’t enter time because it is a temperature function. You don’t enter temperature or power level because the oven does that automatically. There is no automatic shut-off.
How to UseTemp HoId Temp Hold is an especially handy feature of your microwave oven. It lets you hold foods at serving temperature, keeping them “just-cooked” hot and fresh. . Solid (not rolled) roasts may be held below 150°. However, during the microwave roasting process, a great amount of heat is stored in the roast. Keeping the roast in the warm oven cavity during TEMP/HOLD can cause a greater increase in internal temperature than when allowing the roast to stand outside the oven on a kitchen counter.
. How to Use Memory Function The Memory Entry/Recall pad allows you to store complete 2, 3, or 4-step programs or any l-step cooking function which requires the entry of time or temperature. Just set the oven and press the Memory Entry/Recall pad instead of Start. As Memory Entry/ Recall pad is pressed, readout becomes blank, indicating that oven can now be used for other programs.
