The Weight Defrost feature's preset programs can be used, the
Timed Defrost feature can be used, or the microwave oven can
be manually set to defrost.
Unwrap foods and remove lids (for example, from 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 the 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 the
"Aluminum Foil and Metal" section first.
