This appliance can be used by children aged from 8 years and above, and persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge, if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance in a safe way and they understand the hazards involved. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be done by children without supervision.

Liquids and other foods must not be heated in sealed containers, as they may explode.
Only use utensils suitable for usage in microwave ovens.

  • Only use utensils suitable for usage in microwave ovens.
  • When heating food items in plastic or paper containers, monitor the microwave’s contents due to the risk of combustion.
  • If smoke appears, stop the oven or disconnect it from the power supply and leave the door closed to stifle any flames present.
  • Heating beverages in the microwave oven can cause the sudden and/or delayed splattering of boiling liquid, so care must be taken when handling their containers.
  • The contents of baby bottles and baby food jars must be stirred or rearranged and the temperature must be checked before consumption, so as to prevent burns.
  • It is not recommended to heat eggs in their shells or whole hard boiled eggs in a microwave oven, as they may explode, even after cooking has ended.
  • Your appliance is solely intended for domestic use for cooking, reheating and defrosting food. The manufacturer does not accept any liability in the event of inappropriate use.
  • To avoid damaging your appliance, never operate it while empty or without the turntable.
  • Do not interfere with the openings on the lock on the front of the appliance; this could cause damage to your appliance that would require a service callout.
  • The seal and frame of the door must be regularly examined to ensure that they have not become damaged. If damaged the oven should not be used until repaired by an authorised person.
  • In microwave mode, it is not recommended to use metallic cookware, forks, spoons, knives or metal staples or fasteners for defrosting bags. Never heat a baby bottle with the teat on, as it may explode.
  • Always use oven gloves to remove dishes from the oven. Some dishes absorb the heat from food and are therefore very hot.
  • When heating small quantities (a sausage, a croissant, etc.) place a glass of water next to the food.
  • Excessive cooking times may dry out food and burn it. To prevent this occurring, never use the same times recommended for cooking in a conventional oven.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaning materials or hard metal scrapers on the glass oven door, as this could scratch the surface and cause the glass to shatter.
