Custom Defrost

The Custom Defrost feature can be used, or the microwave oven
can be manually set to defrost by using 30% cook power.
Food should be 0°F (-18°C) or colder at defrosting for optimal
results.
Unwrap foods and remove lids (from fruit juice) before
defrosting.
Shallow packages will defrost more quickly than deep blocks.
Separate food pieces as soon as possible during or at the
end of the cycle for more even defrosting.
Foods left outside the freezer for more than 20 minutes or
frozen ready-made food should not be defrosted using the
Custom Defrost feature, but should be defrosted manually.
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.
