Meal
Prep Defrost
The automatic defrost function can be used, or the microwave
oven can be manually set to defrost.
Unwrap foods and remove lids (e.g. fruit juice containers)
before defrosting.
Shallow packages will defrost more quickly than deep blocks.
Separate food pieces as soon as possible during or at the
end of cycle for more even defrosting.
Use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield parts of food such
as chicken wings, leg tips and fish tails. See "Aluminum
Foil
and Metal" first.
The automatic defrost function should not be used for food left
outside the freezer for more than 20 minutes and frozen ready-
made food.
Times and cooking power have been preset for defrosting certain
food types. Use the following chart as a guide.

Sensor Cook ng
A sensor in the microwave oven detects humidity released from
the food as it heats, and adjusts the cook time accordingly.
Many sensor cycles require the covering of foods. Microwave-
safe containers or steamers with loose-fitting lids are
recommended.
The loose-fitting
lid allows enough steam to
escape to be detected by the sensor. When covering foods with
plastic wrap, be sure to leave a large enough vent opening to
allow the steam to escape.
NOTES:
The microwave oven should be plugged in for at least
3 minutes.
The microwave oven cavity and the exterior of the cooking
container should be dry.
The room temperature should not exceed 95°F (35°C).
If the door is opened during a sensor cycle, sensing will stop
and the program will be canceled.
One Touch Sensor Cook ng
A sensor in the microwave oven detects humidity released from
the food and automatically sets a cooking time based on the
selected pad.
NOTE: During Popcorn function, as with all microwave cooking
functions, the microwave oven should be attended at all times.
Listen for popping to slow to 1 pop every 1 or 2 seconds, then
stop the cycle.
Use the following chart as a guide for the ONE TOUCH pads.
