Hi, thanks for your question. I’m Gavin and I’ll help you with your microwave. The shelves supplied with your microwave are designed to be left inside during operation so they are fine to leave in.

These microwaves are not like standard microwaves and do generate more steam than a standard microwave does. To help prevent this you should turn the power down when heating liquids and use food covers when heating food. It is very important on these models to dry out any steam / condensation left inside after use as if it is left it causes the seal on the glass of the inner door to fail and allows steam to pass into the middle of the door.
If there is anything else you would like to know please don’t hesitate to ask.
