What is a 'Fermentation Feature' in a Microwave Oven?

Last Update date : Oct 13. 2020

Fermentation is the chemical breakdown of a substance by bacteria, yeast, or other microorganisms. You can use the fermentation feature to prepare yoghurt and rising yeast dough.


  • Rising yeast dough is prepared with a combination of microwaves and convection program. The turntable rotates in the beginning and does stop rotation after 1/3 of time has passed.


  •  Yoghurt is prepared with convection program only (no rotation of turntable).

With the Fermentation feature, the cooking time is set automatically. You can adjust the number of servings by pressing the + and - button.


First, place the food in the centre of the turntable on rack and close the door.

a). Press the Fermentation button.

b). Select the type of food that you are cooking by pressing the Fermentation button.Refer to the user manual  for various pre-programmed settings.

c). Select the food weight by pressing the + and - buttons.

d). Increase or decrease the cooking time, if necessary, by pressing the More/Less buttons respectively.

e). Press Start/+30s button.


Result: The food is cooked according to the auto-setting selected. When cooking has finished, the oven will beep and flash "0" four times. the oven will then beep once per minute.
