MANUAL DEFROSTING
Microwaves are an excellent way of defrosting frozen food. Microwaves gently
defrost frozen food in a short period of time. This can be of great advantage, if
unexpected guests suddenly show up.
Frozen poultry must be thoroughly thawed before cooking. Remove any metal ties
and take it out of any wrapping to allow thawed liquid to drain away.
Put the frozen food on a dish without cover. Turn over half way, drain off any liquid
and remove any giblets as soon as possible.
Check the food occasionally to make sure that it does not feel warm.
If smaller and thinner parts of the frozen food start to warm up, they can be shield
by wrapping very small strips of aluminium foil around them during defrosting.
Should poultry start to warm up on the outer surface, stop thawing and allow it to
stand for 20 minutes before continuing.
Leave the fish, meat and poultry to stand in order to complete defrosting. The
standing time for complete defrosting will vary depending on the quantity
defrosted. Please refer to the table below.
Hint:
Flat food defrosts better than thick and smaller quantities need less
time than bigger ones. Remember this hint while freezing and
defrosting food.
For defrosting of frozen food with a temperature of about -18 to - 20 °C, use the
following table as a guide.
All frozen food should be defrosted using defrosting power level (180 W).
