5) GLASS TRAY / COOKING CONTAINERS / FOIL
• Cooking containers get hot during microwaving. Heat is transferred from the
HOT food to the container and the Glass Tray. Use pot holders when removing
containers from the oven or when removing lids or plastic wrap covers from
cooking containers, to avoid burns.
• The Glass Tray will get hot during cooking. It should be allowed to cool before
handling or before paper products, such as paper plates or microwave popcorn
bags, are placed in the oven for microwave cooking.
• When using foil in the oven, allow at least 1-inch (2.5 cm) of space between
foil and interior oven walls or door.
• Dishes with metallic trim should not be used, as arcing may occur.
6) PAPER TOWELS / CLOTHS
• DO NOT use paper towels or cloths which contain a synthetic fiber woven into
them. The synthetic fiber may cause the towel to ignite. Use paper toweling
7) BROWNING DISHES / OVEN COOKING BAGS
• Browning dishes or grills are designed for microwave cooking only. Always fol-
low instructions provided by the manufacturer. DO NOT preheat browning dish
more than 6 minutes.
• If an oven cooking bag is used for microwave cooking, prepare according to
package directions. DO NOT use a wire twist-tie to close bag, instead use
plastic ties, cotton string or a strip cut from the open end of the bag.
• DO NOT use a conventional meat thermometer in your oven. Arcing may
occur. Microwave safe thermometers are available for both meat and candy.
9) BABY FORMULA / BABY FOOD
• DO NOT heat baby formula or baby food in the microwave oven. The glass jar
or surface of the food may appear warm while the interior can be so hot as to
burn the infant’s mouth and esophagus.
10) REHEATING PASTRY PRODUCTS
• When reheating pastry products, check temperatures of any fillings before eat-
ing. Some foods have fillings which heat faster and can be extremely hot, while
the surface remains warm to the touch (ex. Jelly Donuts).
11) GENERAL OVEN USAGE GUIDELINES
• DO NOT use the oven for any purpose other than the preparation of food.
