Here you will find a selection of recipes and the ideal
settings for them. We will show you which type of
heating and which temperature or microwave output
setting is best for your meal. You can find information
about suitable accessories and the height at which they

‒The values in the table always apply to food placed
into the cooking compartment when it is cold and
empty. Only preheat the appliance if the table
specifies that you should do so. Before using the
appliance, remove all accessories from the cooking
compartment that you will not be using.
‒Do not line the accessories with greaseproof paper
until after they have been preheated.
‒The times specified in the tables are only
guidelines. They will depend on the quality and
composition of the food.
‒Use the accessories supplied. Additional
accessories may be obtained from specialist
retailers or from the after-sales service.
‒Always use an oven cloth or oven gloves when
taking accessories or ovenware out of the cooking

The following tables provide you with numerous options
and settings for the microwave.
The times specified in the tables are only guidelines.
They may vary according to the ovenware used, the
quality, temperature and consistency of the food.
Time ranges are often specified in the tables. Set the
shortest time first and then extend the time if necessary.
It may be that you have different quantities from those
specified in the tables. A rule of thumb can be applied
for microwave-only operation: Double the amount - just
under double the cooking time, half the amount - half
the cooking time.
You can place the ovenware in the centre of the wire
rack or on the cooking compartment floor. The food will
then absorb the microwaves from all sides.
Place the frozen food in an open container on the oven
Delicate parts such as the legs and wings of chicken or
fatty outer layers of roasts can be covered with small
pieces of aluminium foil. The foil must not touch the
appliance walls. You can remove the foil half way
through the defrosting time.
Turn or stir the food once or twice during the defrosting
time. Large pieces of food should be turned several
times. When turning, remove any liquid that has been
produced during defrosting.
Leave defrosted items to stand at room temperature for
a further 10 to 60 minutes so that the temperature can
stabilise. The giblets can be removed from poultry at
