Useful questions and answers for your new cavity liner:
Q. The Cavity Liner in our microwave oven is bowing down from the roof when we use jugs. How do we correct this?
A. When tall jugs are used, (even without a Cavity Liner), the liquid inside the jug causes a concentration of steam onto one spot (especially if the liquid is overheated), the problem could be resolved if a wider, shorter, jug is used. This would mean that the steam is not concentrated on one spot. (The ideal jug would be half of the height of the cavity size). We suggest that tall jugs which take up the majority of the height of the cavity are not used with, or even without, the Cavity Liner.
Q. When defrosting joints they are causing the base to distort.
A. No food should be cooked, defrosted or reheated directly on the base. Never use high power on joints when defrosting, this can cause the outer extremities of the food to cook before the inside has defrosted.
Q. I am getting scratches and the clarity isn’t as good as it used to be.
A. The ideal way to keep the Liner clean is by washing it on a regular basis in ‘the pot wash’ with a soft cloth and a mild non-corrosive detergent. Scratches will occur if scourers are used and the surface can soon become cloudy. However, it will not affect the working of the Cavity Liner in any way.
Q. If a spillage occurs in the Liner, is it alright to carry on using it?
A. All spillages should be cleaned up before re-using the microwave to avoid cross contamination of food and damage. Simply remove the Liner, give it a quick clean in the pot wash and replace it before re-using the microwave. This will also help to stop spillages ‘cooking’ onto the Cavity Liner base.
Q. There seems to be a lot of steam and condensation after cooking or reheating.
A. This is down purely to overcooking. The worst items causing this problem are ‘high water’ content foods (ie jacket potatoes) Cutting down on the heating times will avoid his problem. Using the correct timings for your microwave and products is essential which will also avoid wasted time and energy but always make sure that all foods have reached the required temperature.
Q. Can I heat up plates in the Liner?
A. NEVER try heating plates up in a microwave oven either with or without a Cavity Liner, this could cause severe damage to both the microwave and the liner. This will not be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. The Microsave Cavity Liner is there to stop damage to the ceiling plate, the base plate and the lens light cover which are never covered by the warranty. Always make sure that the liner is clean and always in place.
