Please read this owner’s manual thoroughly before operating.

How the Microwave Function Works
Microwaves are a form of energy similar to radio, television waves, and ordinary daylight. Normally, microwaves spread outwards as they travel through the atmosphere and disappear without effect.
This oven, however, has a magnetron that is designed to make use of the energy in microwaves. Electricity, supplied to the magnetron tube, is used to create microwave energy. These microwaves enter the cooking area through openings inside the oven. A tray is located inside the oven. Microwaves cannot pass through metal walls of the oven, but they can penetrate such materials as glass, porcelain and paper, the materials out of which microwave-safe cooking dishes are constructed. Microwaves do not heat cookware, though cooking vessels will eventually get hot from the heat generated by the food.

A very safe appliance

Your Microwave oven, is one of the safest of all home appliances. When the door is opened, the oven automatically stops producing microwaves. Microwave energy is converted completely to heat when it enters food, leaving no “left over” energy to harm you when you eat your food.

NOTE: When the oven is not used, it is recommended to unplug it from the electrical socket.

Important Safety Instructions

Please keep for future reference. Read and follow all instructions before using your oven to prevent the risk of fire, electric shock, personal injury, or damage when using the oven. This guide does not cover all possible conditions that may occur. Always contact your service agent or manufacturer about problems that you do not understand.

WARNING: This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can hurt or kill you and others. All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol with either the word “WARNING” or “CAUTION”. These words mean:

  9. When the appliance is operated in the combination mode, children should only use the oven under adult supervision due to the high temperatures generated.

LG ML2881C LIGHTWAVE GRILL img 2CAUTION

  1. You cannot operate your oven with the door open due to the safety interlocks built into the door mechanism. It is important not to tamper with the safety interlocks.
    – It could result in harmful exposure to excessive microwave energy. (Safety interlocks automatically switch off any cooking activity when the door is opened.)
  2. Do not place any object (such as kitchen towels, napkins, etc.) between the oven front face and the door or allow food or cleaner residue to accumulate on sealing surfaces.
    – It could result in harmful exposure to excessive microwave energy.
  3. Do not operate your oven if it is damaged. It is particularly important that the oven door closes properly and that there is no damage to the: (1) door (bent), (2) hinges and latches (broken or loose), (3) door seals and sealing surfaces.
    – It could result in harmful exposure to excessive microwave energy.
  4. Please ensure cooking times are correctly set, Small amounts of food require shorter cooking or heating time.
    – Over cooking may result in the food catching on fire and subsequent damage to your oven.
  5. When heating liquids, e.g. soups, sauces and beverages in your microwave oven,
    * Avoid using straight sided containers with narrow necks.
    * Do not overheat.
    * Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and again halfway through the heating time.
    * After heating, let it stand in the oven for a short time; stir or shake it again carefully and check the temperature of it before consuming to avoid burns (especially, contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars).
    – Be careful when handling the container. Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed eruptive boiling without evidence of bubbling. This could result in hot liquids suddenly boiling over.
  6. An exhaust outlet is located on the top, bottom or side of the oven. Don’t block the outlet.
    – It could result in damage to your oven and poor cooking results.
  7. Do not operate the oven when empty. It is best to leave a glass of water in the oven when not in use. The water will safely absorb all microwave energy, if the oven is accidentally started.

Method To Use Accessories As Per Mode LG ML2881C LIGHTWAVE GRILL img 7

Microwaveable-Safe Utensils

Never use metal or metal trimmed utensils when using microwave function
Microwaves cannot penetrate metal. They will bounce off any metal object in the oven and cause arcing, an alarming phenomenon that resembles lightning. Most heat resistant non metallic cooking utensils are safe for use in your oven. However, some may contain materials that render them unsuitable as microwave cookware. If you have any doubts about a particular utensil, there’s a simple way to find out if it can be used in the microwave. Place the utensil in question next to a glass bowl filled with water when using microwave function. Microwave at power HIGH for 1 minute. If the water heats up but the utensil remains cool to the touch, the utensil is microwave-safe. However, if the water does not change temperature but the utensil becomes warm, microwaves are being absorbed by the utensil and it is not safe for use when using microwave function. You probably have many items on hand in your kitchen right now that can be used as cooking equipment in the microwave. Just read through the following checklist.

Dinner plates
Many kinds of dinnerware are microwave-safe. If in doubt consult the manufacturer’s literature or perform the microwave test.

Glassware
Glassware that is heat-resistant is microwave-safe. This would include all brands of oven tempered glass cookware. However, do not use delicate glassware, such as tumblers or wine glasses, as these might shatter as the food warms.

Plastic storage containers
These can be used to hold foods that are to be quickly reheated. However, they should not be used to hold foods that will need considerable time in the oven as hot foods will eventually warp or melt plastic containers.

Paper
Paper plates and containers are convenient and safe to use when using microwave function, provided that the cooking time is short and foods to be cooked are low in fat and moisture. Paper towels are also very useful for wrapping foods and for lining baking trays in which greasy foods such as bacon are cooked. In general, avoid colored paper products as the color may run. Some recycled paper products may contain impurities which could cause arcing or fires when used in the microwave.

Plastic cooking bags
Provided they are made specially for cooking, cooking bags are microwave safe. However, be sure to make a slit in the bag so that steam can escape. Never use ordinary plastic bags for cooking in using microwave function, as they will melt and rupture.

Plastic microwave cookware
A variety of shapes and sizes of microwave cookware are available. For the most part, you can probably use items you already have on hand rather than investing in new kitchen equipment.

Pottery, stoneware and ceramic
Containers made of these materials are usually fine for use when using microwave function, but they should be tested to be sure.

CAUTION:

  • Some items with high lead or iron content are not suitable as cooking utensils.
  • Utensils should be checked to ensure that they are suitable for use in the microwave.

FOOD CHARACTERISTICS & MICROWAVE COOKING

Keeping an eye on things
The recipes in this book have been formulated with great care, but your success in preparing them depends on how much attention you pay to the food as it cooks. Always watch your food while it cooks. Your microwave function is equipped with a light that turns on automatically when the oven is in operation so that you can see inside and check the progress of your food. Directions given in recipes to elevate, stir, and the like should be thought of as the minimum steps recommended. If the food seems to be cooking unevenly, simply make the necessary adjustments you think are appropriate to correct the problem.

Factors affecting microwave cooking times
Many factors affect cooking times. The temperature of ingredients used in a recipe makes a big difference in cooking times. For example, a cake made with ice-cold butter, milk, and eggs will take considerably longer to bake than one made with ingredients that are at room temperature. All of the recipes in this book give a range of cooking times. In general, you will find that the food remains under-cooked at the lower end of the time range, and you may sometimes want to cook your food beyond the maximum time given, according to personal preference. The governing philosophy of this book is that it is best for a recipe to be conservative in giving cooking times because overcooked food is ruined for good. Some of the recipes, particularly those for bread, cake, and custards, recommend that food be removed from the oven when they are slightly undercooked. This is not a mistake. When allowed to stand, usually covered, these foods will continue to cook outside of the oven as the heat trapped within the outer portions of the food gradually travels inward. If the food is left in the oven until it is cooked all the way through, the outer portions will become overcooked or even burnt. You will become increasingly skillful in estimating both cooking and standing times for various foods.

Density of food
Light, porous food such as cakes and breads cook more quickly than heavy, dense foods such as roasts and casseroles. You must take care when microwaving porous food so that the outer edges do not become dry and brittle.

Height of food
The upper portion of tall foods, particularly roasts, will cook more quickly than the lower portion. Therefore, it is wise to turn tall food several times, during cooking.

Moisture content of food
Since the heat generated from microwaves causes moisture to evaporate, relatively dry food such as roasts and some vegetables should either be sprinkled with water prior to cooking or covered to retain moisture.

Bone and fat content of food
Bones conduct heat and fat cooks more quickly than meat. Care must be taken when cooking bony or fatty cuts of meat in order to prevent unevenly or overcooked meat.

Quantity of food
The number of microwaves in your oven remains constant regardless of how much food is being cooked.
Therefore, the more food you place in the oven, the longer the cooking time. Remember to decrease cooking times by at least one third when halving a recipe.

Shape of food
Microwaves penetrate only about 2 cm into food, the interior portion of thick foods are cooked as the heat generated on the outside travels inward. Only the outer edge of food is cooked by microwave energy; the rest is cooked by conduction. The worst possible shape for a food that is to be microwaved is a thick square. The corners will burn long before the centre is even warm. Round thin foods and ring shaped foods cook most successfully in the microwave.

Covering
A cover traps heat and steam which causes food to cook more quickly. Use a lid or microwave cling film with a corner folded back to prevent spitting.

Browning
Meats and poultry that are cooked fifteen minutes or longer will brown lightly in their own fat. Foods that are cooked for a shorter period of time may be brushed with a browning sauce such as worcestershire sauce, soy sauce or barbecue sauce to achieve an appetizing color. Since relatively small amounts of browning sauces are added to food, the original flavor of the recipe is not altered.

Covering with greaseproof paper
It provides a looser cover than a lid or cling film, which may dry food out slightly. But because it makes a looser cover than a lid or cling film, it allows the food to dry out slightly.

Arranging and spacing
Individual foods such as baked potatoes, small cakes and hors d’oeuvres will heat more evenly if placed in the oven at an equal distance apart, preferably in a circular pattern. Never stack foods on top of one another.

Stirring
Stirring is one of the most important of all microwaving techniques. In conventional cooking, food is stirred for the purpose of blending. Microwaved food, however, is stirred in order to spread and redistribute heat. Always stir from the outside towards the centre as the outside of the food heats first.

Turning over Large, tall foods such as roasts and whole chickens should be turned so that the top and bottom will cook evenly. It is also a good idea to turn cut up chicken and chops.

Placing thicker portions facing outwards Since microwaves are attracted to the outside portion of food, it makes sense to place thicker portions of meat, poultry and fish to the outer edge of the baking dish. This way, thicker portions will receive the most microwave energy and the food will cook evenly.

Shielding
Strips of aluminium foil (which block microwaves) can be placed over the corners or edges of square and rectangular foods to prevent those portions from overcooking. Never use too much foil and make sure the foil is secured to the dish or it may cause ‘arcing’ in the oven.

Elevating
Thick or dense foods can be elevated so that microwaves can be absorbed by the underside and centre of the foods.

Piercing
Foods enclosed in a shell, skin or membrane are likely to burst in the oven unless they are pierced prior to cooking. Such foods include yolks and whites of eggs, clams and oysters and whole vegetables and fruits.

Testing if cooked
Food cooks so quickly in a oven, it is necessary to test it frequently. Some foods are left in the microwave until completely cooked, but most foods, including meats and poultry, are removed from the oven while still slightly undercooked and allowed to finish cooking during standing time. The internal temperature of foods will rise between 5° F (3° C) and 15° F (8° C) during standing time.

Standing time
Foods are often allowed to stand for 3 to 10 minutes after being removed from the oven. Usually the foods are covered during standing time to retain heat unless they are supposed to be dry in texture (some cakes and biscuits, for example). Standing allows foods to finish cooking and also helps flavor blend and develop.

To Clean Your Oven

  1. Keep the inside of the oven clean: Food spatters or spilled liquids stick to oven walls and between the seal and door surfaces. It is best to wipe up spillovers with a damp cloth right away. Crumbs and spillovers will absorb microwave energy and lengthen cooking times. Use a damp cloth to wipe out crumbs that fall between the door and the frame. It is important to keep this area clean to assure a tight seal. Remove greasy spatters with a soapy cloth then rinse and dry. Do not
    use harsh detergent or abrasive cleaners. The metal tray can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher.
  2. Keep the outside of the oven clean: Clean the outside of your oven with soap and water then with clean water and dry with a soft cloth or paper towel. To prevent damage to the operating parts inside the oven, the water should not be allowed to seep into the ventilation openings. To clean control panel, open the door to prevent the oven from accidentally starting, and wipe with a damp cloth, followed immediately by a dry cloth. Press Stop/Clear after cleaning.
  3. If steam accumulates inside or around the outside of the oven door, wipe the panels with a soft cloth. This may occur when the oven is operated under high humidity conditions and in no way indicates a malfunction of the unit.
  4. The door and door seals should be kept clean. Use only warm, soapy water, rinse then dry thoroughly.
    DO NOT USE ABRASIVE MATERIALS, SUCH AS CLEANING POWDERS OR STEEL AND PLASTIC PADS. Metal parts will be easier to maintain if wiped frequently with a damp cloth.
  5. Do not use steam cleaners.
  6. Unplug your oven from the electrical socket when you clean the control panel with a wet cloth or spray water on control glass to clean. If it is not unplugged, this product can be operated by touching the Quick Start button.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

FAQ

Answer

What’s wrong when the oven light does not glow? There may be several reasons why the oven light does not glow. Either the light bulb has blown or the electric circuit has failed.
Does microwave energy pass through the viewing screen in the door? No. The holes, or ports, are made to allow light to pass; they do not let microwave energy through.
Why does the BEEP tone sound when a button on the control panel is touched? The BEEP tone sounds to assure that the setting is being properly entered.
Will the microwave function be damaged if it operates empty? Yes. Never run it empty.
Why do eggs sometimes pop? When baking, frying, or poaching eggs, the yolk may pop due to steam build up inside the yolk membrane. To prevent this, simply pierce the yolk before cooking. Never microwave eggs in the shell.
Why is standing time recommended after microwave cooking is over? After microwave cooking is finished, food keeps on cooking during standing time. This standing time finishes evenly cooking throughout the food. The amount of standing time depends on the density of the food.
Why doesn’t my oven always cook as fast as the cooking guide says? Check your cooking guide again to make sure you’ve followed directions correctly, and to see what might cause variations in cooking time. Cooking guide times and heat settings are suggestions, chosen to help prevent overcooking, the most common problem in getting used to this oven. Variations in the size, shape, weight and dimensions of the food require longer cooking time. Use your own judgement along with the cooking guide suggestions to test food conditions, just as you would do with a conventional cooker.
