Meal Prep Defrost

The automatic defrost function can be used, or the microwave
oven can be manually set to defrost.
Food should be 0°F (-18°C) or colder at defrosting for optimal
results.
Unwrap foods and remove lids (e.g. fruit juice containers)
before defrosting.
Shallow packages will defrost more quickly than deep blocks.
Separate food pieces as soon as possible during or at the
end of 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 automatic defrost function should not be used for food left
outside the freezer for more than 20 minutes and frozen ready-
