An apparatus for cooking food. With dimensions of approximately 31 × 47 × 40 cm and a capacity of 25 litres. It has a housing of stainless steel, a turntable, a safety child lock feature, control buttons and a clock.
The apparatus comprises: a microwave oven with five power levels, a maximum power output of 900 watts and a timer, it has pre-set cooking and defrosting programmes; and a quartz griller with a maximum power output of 1,000 watts. The apparatus is designed to cook food by means of the microwave oven. It also cooks, browns and crisps food by means of the griller.Classification is determined by General Rules 1 and 6 for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature, Note 3 to Section XVI, and by the wording of CN codes 8516 and 8516 50 00. Classification of the apparatus as an industrial microwave oven of heading 8514 is excluded given its power output and oven capacity (see also the CN Explanatory Notes to subheading 8514 20 80). The apparatus is a composite machine within the meaning of Note 3 to Section XVI as it consists of a microwave oven of CN code 8516 50 00 and a griller of CN code 8516 60 70. Given all the characteristics of the apparatus, such as power output, power levels and the number of programmes, the microwave oven is to be considered as performing the principal function of the composite machine. The apparatus is therefore to be classified under CN code 8516 50 00 as a microwave oven. These are not a change in UK practice (Commission Regulation 776/2011)
