Defrosting

The automatic Defrost control 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 (for example, from 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 control has 3 categories: Meat, Poultry
and Fish. It should not be used for food left outside the freezer
