DEFROST FEATURE

This main oven function defrosts most foods faster
than more conventional methods. It is particularly
suitable for delicate frozen foods which are to be
served cold e.g. cream filled gateaux, cakes covered
with icings or frostings, cheesecakes, biscuits,
scones, etc.

USING DEFROST FEATURE

Turn the main oven temperature control to the
defrost setting.
When defrost is selected, the oven indicator neon
may come ON. It will stay ON until the oven
reaches room temperature and then go OFF.
It may turn ON and OFF periodically during
defrosting
to
maintain
temperature, inside the oven.

THINGS TO NOTE

The oven fan and interior light will come on.

HINTS AND TIPS

Place the frozen food in a single layer where
possible and turn it over half way through the
defrosting process.
The actual speed of defrosting is influenced by
room temperature. On warm days defrosting will
be faster than on cooler days.
It is preferable to thaw fish, meat and poultry
slowly in the fridge. However, this process can
be accelerated by using the defrost function.
Small or thin fish fillets, frozen peeled prawns,
cubed or minced meat, liver, thin chops, steaks
etc., can be thawed in 1 – 2 hours.
A 1kg/2¼lb oven ready chicken will be thawed in
approximately 5 hours. Remove the giblets as
soon as possible during the thawing process.
Joints of meat up to 2kg/4½lb in weight can be
thawed using the defrost function.
All joints of meat and poultry must be thawed
thoroughly before cooking.

Do not leave food at room temperature once it is
defrosted. Cook raw food immediately or store
cooked food in the fridge, once it has cooled.
Care must always be taken when handling foods
in the home. Always follow the basic rules of
food hygiene to prevent bacterial growth and
cross contamination when defrosting, preparing,
cooking, cooling and freezing foods.
