Re: Microwave Symbols

just to drag things back down to my level: Many of the recipes we've been using over the last 10years suggest settings of "700" or "800" ( great; piece of cake!) If you see my pic of our new microwave there are just squigley lines ( 1,2 &3) rather than numbers ( watts) I know...

Re: Microwave Symbols

I also usually download manuals first. The manual ,which came ( in a polythene bag big enough to hold a pillowcase )with the unit, is a tome similar in size to "War & Peace". However there is an English section. Most of it is taken up explaining how you shouldn't do things.( why it's b...

Re: Microwave Symbols

Thanks Wicksey.
Interestingly the old function dial simply leapt from one setting to the next ; whereas the new one has ten extra settings in-between.
a bit of trial and error I reckon.

Microwave Symbols

Our Landlord has given us a new microwave. Very good :thumbup: Problem is we've got used to cooking in "watts" / "numbers" in the functions. You can see that our new gadget has weird symbols. Could anyone please translate the "Squigley-Lines" into "watts" Plea...

E-Gates

Would you believe it. Just after Spain had decided to make things easier for Brits travelling to Spain ( allowing visitors through the "EU" section at the airport) They have decided now ( possibly) to make things even more difficult. Travellers using the e-gates may have to show even more ...

Re: Car Paint

Just tried WD40. Certainly cleans the surfaces up a bit. Also realized that a couple of the panels between front & rear windows have developed kind of raised cracks,so something with an element of black pigment looks to be necessary. Thanks again jhonie99,Costakid & Spanishlad. All good idea...

Car Paint

Apart from the bumpers,my car has black plastic bits of trim between the windows etc. They have become "grey" and shabby. Can I buy a paint for this ,which can be applied by brush? I would prefer brush-applied rather than an aerosol, since the masking-taping would be extremely fiddley. Tha...
