Defrosting tips • When using the defrost weight feature, the weight entered should always be pounds (valid entries are from 0.3 to 6.3 pounds). • Use both defrost weight and defrost time features for raw food items only. Defrosting gives best results when food to be thawed is a minimum of 0°F (taken directly from a true freezer).
Suggestions for getting the best results To help you achieve the best possible results from your microwave oven, read the following suggestions below; • Storage temperature Foods taken from the freezer or refrigerator take longer to cook than the same foods would at room temperature.
• Be sure the outside of the cooking containers and the cavity of the microwave oven are dry before placing food in the oven. Excessive moisture turning into steam not resulting from the food cooking can mislead the sensor.
Fish (frozen) The fish (sensor) feature cooks from 6 to 16 oz. of frozen fish automatically (starting with frozen fish temperature at 23º F). Example: to cook frozen fish automatically. 1. Press fish pad once. 2. Press START/+30sec pad. The microwave will beep 5 times when finished. If additional time is need, continue to cook the fish manually.
Notes: • Be sure to ALWAYS follow the directions that are specific for the microwave oven that is printed on the packaging for the food item you are preparing. Many times these have special instructions that must be followed in order to ensure the best possible results.
Popcorn • DO NOT leave micowave oven unattended while popping corn. The popcorn feature lets you pop 3 different commercially packaged microwave popcorn sized bags. Use the table below to determine the setting to use. Amount 3.0 oz. (default setting) 1.75 oz.
Cooking meat in your microwave Be sure to place prepared meats on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a microwave-safe dish. Start cooking the meat fat side down and if necessary, use narrow strips of aluminum foil to shield any bone tips or thin meat areas. After cooking, check the temperature in several places before letting the meat stand the recommended time.
Cooking vegetables in your microwave • Vegetables should be washed just before cooking. Rarely is extra water needed. If dense vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and greens are being cooked, add about ¼ cup of water. • Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.) will cook faster than larger vegetables.
