How a microwave works
Microwaves are a form of energy similar to radio and television waves and regular daylight. Everything radiates from microwaves – kitchen sink, coffee pot, even people. But microwaves spread through the atmosphere and disappear without effect. MW is designed to utilize microwave energy. Electricity is transformed into MW energy in a magnetron and microwaves proceed through the openings in the walls of the oven into the food preparation space. Microwaves can not penetrate the microwave walls but can penetrate materials such as glass, porcelain, and paper, thus materials of which the ware for microwave food preparation is made. Microwaves do not heat the dishes but the dishes may be heated by the heat of the heated food. Microwaves are drawn by moisture in the food where they cause a vibration of the molecules of water 2450 times per second. The molecules rub against each other and create friction which causes the heating of the food.

Very safe appliance
MW oven is one of the safest home appliances. If the door is opened, the MW automatically stops its operation.

Factors affecting the cooking time
The cooking time is affected by several factors. The temperature of food and ingredients used for cooking causes big differences in the cooking length. E.g. food preparation with ice-cold food will last substantially longer than the preparation of the same food with ingredients whose temperature is room temperature. The cooking time is also affected by the set power.


Food density
Light, porous foods such as pastry and bread are prepared faster than heavy, dense foods such as roast. When preparing porous foods in MW oven, make sure the outer parts do not dry and crispen. Cover the outer parts with foil (for MW ovens) or cook at low power.

Food height
Top part of tall foods, namely when baking will bake faster than the lower part. It is, therefore, suitable to turn the food while cooking, sometimes several times.

Initial temperature
The initial temperature of the food directly affects the time for which the food needs to be cooked or heated. It is the same as with conventional cooking – frozen foods cook longer than foods refrigerated and foods stored at room temperature.

Moisture in food
Because the microwaves are drawn by moisture, relatively dry foods such as roast or some kinds of vegetable should be sprinkled with water or covered.

Food size
The smaller and more unified the pieces of ingredients in the MW are, the better. It is also suitable to cook cut-up food in bigger kitchen ware in order that the microwaves may get to the pieces from all sides and ensure even cooking.

Quantity of food
The amount of microwaves remains the same regardless of the quantity of food prepared. The more food you put in the oven the longer will the preparation take. Small quantity of food requires shorter time for cooking or heating. When using regular times for cooking or heating, the food may overheat or burn.

Bones and fats
Bones conduct heat and big amounts of fat draw MW energy. When preparing slice of meat with bones and fat, be careful not to cook the meat unevenly and roast it too thoroughly. Foods with big amounts of fat and sugar require a careful choice of cooking time because they may easily become hot and burn or even cause fire in the MW by self-ignition.

Shape of ingredients
Microwaves penetrate the food only approx. 2.5 cm. The inner parts of the food will cook by the heat created on the surface penetrating inward. In other words, only the inner parts of food will actually cook by microwave energy. The rest will cook by heat distribution in the food. It is therefore obvious that the worst shape of food for food preparation by MW oven is thick block. Before the centre heats up, the edges will burn. Try to make the edges of the food round. These will cook best in the MW.

Defrosting frozen foods
Frozen foods may be put into the MW oven for defrosting (do not forget to remove all metal clips and packages). Cover the parts of food which defrost faster than others if needed. The process of defrosting will thus slow down or stop. Some foods do not need to be defrosted completely before further preparation. E.g. preparation of fish is so quick that it is sometimes better to start preparing them when slightly frozen.

Cooking of frozen foods
This kind of food requires special care if it is prepared in a MW oven. It is because most of the information on the packaging refers to a specific oven. It is, therefore, necessary to know the power of your oven. If your oven has lower power than stated in the information on the packaging, you should alter the cooking time INCREASE the cooking time in one-minute intervals, and stir the food every time if possible. Then, let it rest for at least 3 minutes.

Foods in shells, skin or membranes will burst in the MW oven unless you pierce them before cooking. This includes some kinds of smoked meats, yolks and egg whites, clams, oysters and several kinds of vegetables and fruit.

Checking the state
Because foods will cook fast in the MW, it is necessary to check them frequently. Some foods are left in the oven till they are cooked completely but most of the foods (incl. meat and poultry) should be taken out of the oven shortly before well done and be let finish cooking out of the oven. During this time, the inner temperature of the food will rise by 3 °C to 8 °C.

Lag time
Let the food rest when removed from the oven for at least 3 to 10 minutes. The food is usually covered for this time to keep the heat inside unless it is food whose texture should be dry (e.g. some kinds of breads and crackers). The lag enables the cooking to finish and the taste and smell to spread.


Placing and distance
The individual pieces of food such as baked potatoes, small pieces of bread and appetizers will heat up more evenly if they are spread in the MW oven by same distance from each other, the ideal shape being circle. Do not stock the ingredients on top of each other.

Stirring is one of the most important processes in microwave cooking. Stirring in microwave cooking serves to allow the heat to spread. Stir always from the outside inward because the outer part of the food heats first.

Large and long ingredients (such as roast or whole poultry) do not need to be turned for all the parts to cook evenly. It is also suitable to turn chopped poultry and schnitzels.

Covering with foil
Strips of foil are sometimes put on the corners and edges of angular ingredients (foil for MW ovens) which hold the microwaves and protect these parts from over-cooking. Do not use an excessive amount of foil and always attach it safely to the ingredient or the kitchenware, otherwise sparkling might occur in the oven which could damage it!

It is good to lift heavy or thick foods so that the microwaves may penetrate to the bottom part and inside the ingredient.

Meat and poultry cooked for 15 minutes or longer will brown slightly in their fat. Foods prepared for a shorter time may be smeared with a sauce which will cause a browning and an appealing look.


  • Stir the foods regularly during heating. If stirring is not possible, position the food differently.
  • Keep the lag times recommended in the literature in order to utilize the MW energy at full and prevent over-heating of the food.
  • If you are not sure about if an ingredient will lose moisture during heating, wrap it tightly in a foil suitable for MW ovens and pierce the foil in several places.
  • When heating potatoes in skin, bread, pastry or moist ingredients, place the ingredients on a sheet of blotting kitchen paper which will absorb the moisture.
  • If you are going to heat the food on a plate, try placing them in an even layer.
  • The times given in the literature are valid for heating ingredients at room temperature. If the ingredients are cold, increase the time.
  • Place the heated ingredients on the plate in a way that the heavier, thicker and meatier parts are on the rim of the plate where they will absorb most of the energy and the thinner parts in the middle.


Watch the operation of the product
The diagrams and values in this manual were prepared very thoroughly but your success in preparing food depends on how much of your attention you will pay to the food prepared. Always watch the food prepared. The MW is equipped with a light that will automatically light up when put to operation. Thanks to that it is possible to watch the process of preparation. Consider instructions in literature such as „increase“, „stir“ etc. minimal steps. If it seems that the meal is prepared unevenly, do what you consider best to repair the flaws.

Cooking ware
Never use metal dishes, dishes with metal decorations or dishes coated with foil. Microwaves do not penetrate metal. They will reflect off of the metal objects in the oven and the walls and cause an electric arc – a disturbing phenomenon resembling lightning. Most fire-resistant non-metal dishes can be used in the MW oven safely. Some dishes may contain materials due to which they become unsuitable for MW cooking. If you have doubts about whether a specific dish is suitable, you can find out in a simple way.

Testing dishes for microwave cooking
Test the dishes for MW suitability before using it in the MW oven. Put the tested dish in the MW oven together with a glass bowl filled with water and turn the oven on for a minute at maximum power. If the water in the glass bowl heats and the tested dish remains cold, this dish is suitable for microwave cooking. If the tested dish is hot (Beware not to burn your fingers!), it means that the microwaves were absorbed by the dish and this dish is not suitable for microwave cooking.

Dishes for microwave cooking

  1. Most glass and glass-ceramic dishes are suitable. However, if they have metal/gold/silver decorations, do not use them. Varnished/glazed colored porcelain and glass must not be cut and hardened. We recommend round or oval dishes over square or rectangular dishes because the corner parts of the meal have a tendency to overcook.
  2. Paper, cardboard, and pasteboard napkins, kitchen towels, plates, cups and dishes made of wood, straw or withe may be used in the MW oven for short-time heating. Do not use products of recycled paper, because they may contain impurities (particles of metal) which may cause sparkles or fire during cooking.
  3. Plastic plates, cups, bags, and packages may be used in the MW oven. Follow the instructions of the manufacturer.
  4. Do not use metal dishes and dishes with metal decorations in the MW oven. If a recipe requires use of alu-foil, skewers or dishes containing metal, keep a gap of at least 2.5 cm between the metal object and the inner wall of the oven. If the electric arc (sparkling) appears, remove the metal object and replace it with a non-metal one.
  5. Do not use sealed dishes (bottles with cork, caps etc.)
  6. Be careful when removing dishes or the turning plate from the oven. Some kinds of dishes may absorb heat from the food being cooked and become very hot.
  7. Use only a thermometer that is intended or recommended for use in MW ovens.

The following table gives an overview for cooking in your MW oven:eta-Microwave-Oven-1208-90000-fig-3

When heating up liquids in the MW oven such as soups, sauces and drinks, boiling might occur without any signs of bubbles. Then the hot liquid might suddenly boil over Keep the following instructions in order to prevent this:

  1. Do not use dishes with straight walls and narrow necks.
  2. Do not overheat the liquids.
  3. Stir the liquid before putting the dish into the oven and then in half of the cooking time.
  4. To prevent burning, leave the dish in the MW oven for a short while, then stir the liquid again and check its temperature before serving (especially with children bottles).


  1. Remove all packaging material, and remove the accessory. Remove all adhesive foils, stickers or paper from the appliance. Place the turning table on the turning circle in the middle of the oven.
  2. Place the MW oven on the desired firm and flat surface (e.g. kitchen desk or a specially designed stand for MW ovens) at the height of at least 85 cm and out of reach of children. The glass of the door could heat up to a very high temperature. Leave space above, behind, and next to the oven for proper ventilation (pic. 1). Openings in the appliance provide airflow during ventilation and must not be covered or blocked. Also, the feet of the oven must not be removed. Covering the openings or removing the feet may cause damage to the MW oven.
  3. Make sure that the supply cord is not damaged and does not go through the oven or through any other sharp or hot places. The el. outlet must be easily accessible in order that the oven can be easily disconnected from the el. the outlet in case of danger. The appliance is equipped with a supply cord with a protective conductor. The fork must be plugged into a properly wired and grounded socket according to EN! We recommend using an individual electric circuit with a safeguard 16 A.
  4. Do not remove the light brown cover that is attached to the oven cavity to protect the magnetron.
  5. Place the oven as far away from the radios and TV as possible. The operation of a microwave oven may cause interference to your radio or TV reception.


  • If the MW oven does not work properly, unplug it from the el. outlet, wait for 10 seconds and then connect it again.


  • Open the oven door and insert the turntable ring.Put the glass tray on the top of the turntable ring, so that the central point of the glass tray sits on the turntable shaft at the bottom of the oven.
  • Never place the glass tray upside down. The glass tray should be restricted.
  • Both glass tray and turntable ring assembly must always be used during cooking,
  • All food and containers of food are always placed on the glass tray for cooking.
  • If the glass tray or turntable ring assembly cracks or breaks, contact the nearest authorized service center.eta-Microwave-Oven-1208-90000-fig-4

Ventilation (pic. 1)
Proper ventilation is necessary for cooling of the MW. If the ventilation openings are covered during the operation of the MW, the MW will overheat. In such case, a heat fuse will turn the MW off. The MW oven will not work unless it has cooled down sufficiently. Air coming from the ventilation openings may heat up during operation. This is normal. Steam is a normal product of cooking. The MW is designed in order that this steam is released through ventilation openings on the side and in the back of the appliance.eta-Microwave-Oven-1208-90000-fig-1

Question: Why is the light in the MW oven not on?
Answer: Bulb filament is burnt.

Question: Why is there steam coming out of the openings and why is there water dripping from the bottom part of the door?
Answer: The emergence of steam during cooking is normal. The MW oven is equipped with ventilation openings through which the steam goes out. Sometimes the steam may condensate on the door and then water starts dripping from the bottom part of the door. It is utterly normal and safe.

Question: Can microwave energy penetrate the door window?
Answer: No! Metal shielding reflects the energy back into the oven. Openings and inlets enable light to pass through but not MW energy.

Question: Why do eggs sometimes burst?
Answer: When baking or cooking eggs the yolk may burst because there is steam emerging in the yolk membrane. To avoid this, pierce the egg with a toothpick before cooking. Never cook eggs without piercing the shell!

Question: Why is there lag time recommended after the cooking ends?
Answer: The lag time is very important. When cooking food in the MW oven, heat emerges in the food, not in the oven. There emerges enough inner heat in many foods to continue the process of cooking even after removing the food from the oven. The purpose of the lag time with bigger pieces of meat, bigger pieces of vegetables,s and pies is to enable the inside of the food to cook through evenly without over-cooking the outer parts.

Question: Why does the microwave oven not always cook as fast as the instructions for preparing food state?
Answer: Read the recipe once again to make sure that you have kept all instructions thoroughly and learn what may have caused the difference in preparation times. Preparation times and set temperatures are recommended values that should prevent over-cooking which is one of the most common problems of beginners when using the MW oven. Differences in terms of size, shape, weight, dimensions and temperature of the food will require a longer or shorter time of preparation. Use your own judgment and recommended values to verify if the food has been prepared thoroughly just you would have prepared it with conventional cooking.

Question: Why is there sparkling and crackling (electric arc) in the MW oven?
Answer: You are using dishes with metal parts or decorations (silver or gold). You left a fork or another metal object in the oven. You are using too much of metal foil. You are using metal clips. There are remains of food in the MW oven.


Disconnect the appliance from the el. outlet by pulling the fork of the supply cord from the socket before maintenance! Keep the inner surfaces of the MW clean and dry in order that no sediments of grease and food particles occurs. In general the MW oven should be cleaned every time it has been used.

Inner walls
Remove all remains of food between door and MW oven with a damp cloth. This area must be cleaned very thoroughly in order that the door can be closed properly. Remove all grease stains with a damp cloth then wipe and dry the walls. Do not use cleaning agents which are rough and abrasive because they will scratch and damage the surface of the MW oven. Remove the smells from the inside of the oven by placing a microwaveable dish with water with lemon juice squeezed from one lemon with skin and letting the microwaves work on it. Wipe and dry the inside of the oven afterwards.

ATTENTION: Never pour water into the MW oven!

Door and door sealing must remain clean. Wash only with warm water with soap and then dry thoroughly. Do not use any abrasive agents such as cleaning powders or metal or plastic scrapers. Metal parts are best maintained by wiping them frequently with a damp cloth.

Outer parts
Clean outer casing with a fine cloth with warm water, then dry it with a soft cloth. Make sure that water does not get to the inner parts. If the supply cord gets dirty, wipe it with clean cloth. Always make sure that the surface of the door sealing is clean.

Turning plate
Clean the glass plate in clean water after each use. Remove the turning circle and clean it in hot water with soap once a week. It is also necessary to maintain the guiding are clean so that grease does not prevent the wheels to turn. Otherwise, the noisiness of the oven might increase.
