Other warnings

  1. To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
    a. Do not overcook food.
    b. Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before placing the bag in the oven.
    c. Do not heat oil or fat for deep frying. The temperature of the oil cannot be controlled.
  2. To reduce the risk of an explosion or delayed eruptive boiling, care should be taken when handling the container. Your oven is capable of heating food and beverages very quickly with microwaves, therefore it is very important that you select the appropriate cooking time and power level for the type and quantity of food to be heated. If you are unsure of the cooking time and power level required, begin with low cooking times and power levels until the food is sufficiently heated evenly throughout.
    a. Do not place sealed containers in the oven. Baby bottles fitted with a screw cap or teat are considered to be sealed containers.
    b. Do not use excessive amounts of time.
    c. When boiling liquids in the oven, use a wide-mouthed container.
    d. Stand at least for 20 seconds at the end of cooking to avoid delayed eruptive boiling of liquids.
    e. Stir the liquid before and during cooking. Use extreme care when handling the container or inserting
    a spoon or other utensil into the container.
  3.  Never operate the oven whilst any object is caught or jammed between the door and the oven.
  4.  Handle with care when removing items from the oven so that the utensil, your clothes or accessories do not touch the latches.
  5.  Never poke an object, particularly a metal object, through a grille or between the door and the oven while the oven is operating.
  6.  Never tamper with or deactivate the door safety latches.
  7.  Always use oven gloves to prevent burns when handling utensils that are in contact with hot food. Enough heat from the food can transfer through utensils to cause skin burns.
  8.  If the oven lamp fails please consult your dealer or a qualified service technician trained by SHARP.
  9.  Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from the face and hands. Slowly lift the furthest edge of a dish’s cover including microwave plastic wrap etc., and carefully open popcorn and oven cooking bags away from the face.
  10.  Make sure that the power supply cord is undamaged, and that it does not run under the oven or over any hot surfaces or sharp edges.
  11.  To prevent the turntable from breaking:
    a. Before cleaning the turntable with water, leave the turntable to cool.
    b. Do not place anything hot on a cold turntable.
    c. Do not place anything cold on a hot turntable.
  12.  Do not place anything on the outer cabinet.
  13.  Do not store food or any other items inside the oven.
  14.  Make sure the utensil does not touch the interior walls during cooking.
  15.  Ensure the handles of utensils do not touch walls when turntables rotate. Take care as handles may become extremely hot if the utensil stops rotating.
