Custom Defrosting

The Custom Defrost feature's preset programs 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 thick 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 "Aluminum Foil
and Metal" first.
The Custom Defrost feature has preset times and cook powers
for 3 categories: Meat, Poultry and Fish. Custom Defrost should
not be used for food that has been left outside the freezer for
more than 20 minutes, or for frozen ready-made food. Use the
