MICROWAVE-SAFE COOKWARE

Do not operate the oven in the microwave mode without the turntable and the turntable support seated and in place. The turntable must be unrestricted so it can rotate. Make sure all cookware used in your microwave oven is suitable for microwaving. Most glass casseroles, cooking dishes, measuring cups, custard cups, pottery or china dinnerware which does not have metallic trim or glaze with a metallic sheen can be used. Some cookware is labeled suitable for microwaving. n If you are not sure if a dish is microwave-safe, use this test: Place in the oven both the dish you are

How to test for a testing and a glass microwave-safe dish. measuring cup filled with 1 cup of waterset the measuring cup either in or next to the dish. Microwave 3045 seconds at high. If the dish heats, it should not be used for microwaving.

If the dish remains cool and only the water in the cup heats, then the dish is microwave-safe. n Oversized food or oversized metal cookware should not be used in a microwave/ convection oven because they increase the risk of electric shock and could cause a fire. n Sometimes the oven floor, turntable and walls can become too hot to touch. Be careful touching the floor, turntable and walls during and after cooking. n If you use a meat thermometer while microwaving, make sure it is safe for use in microwave ovens. n Do not use recycled paper products.
