If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on the dEFROST
ChART or is above or below the limits in the Amount column
on the dEFROST ChART, you need to defrost manually.
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously
cooked, by using power level for 30%. Follow the exact
3-step procedure found under TO SET POWER LEvEL.
Estimate defrosting time and press power level pad eight
times for 30%.
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food, the rule of
thumb is approximately 4 minutes per pound. For example,
defrost 4 minutes for 1 pound of frozen spaghetti sauce.
Always stop the microwave oven periodically to remove
or separate the portions that are defrosted. If food is not
defrosted at the end of the estimated defrosting time, program
the microwave oven in 1 minute increments on power level
30% until totally defrosted.
When using plastic containers from the freezer, defrost only
long enough to remove from the plastic in order to place in
a microwave-safe dish.
