USE AND CARE
- Unlock the locking tabs on the lid. CAUTION AFTER COOKING: Remove the lid slowly away from your face and body to release the steam.

- When cooking foods that may splatter, close and lock the lid.
- When using a microwave with inverter technology and cooking less than 2 cups (500 mL) of liquid, reduce the cooking time at MEDIUM (50% power) by 5 minutes. Follow your microwave oven manufacturer’s guidelines regarding power adjustments.
- When melting butter or margarine:
- Do not allow margarine or butter to bubble or boil.
- Remove from the microwave before the butter is completely melted. The residual heat will finish your melting.
- Generally, ½ cup (125 mL) of butter melts in 40–45 seconds on HIGH.
