Manual Defrost
Defrost should not be used for food left out of the freezer for
more than 20 minutes, or for frozen ready-made food.
Food should be 0°F (-18°C) or colder at the time the cycle is
started for optimal results. How foods are stored can affect
results.
Unwrap foods and remove lids (for example, from fruit juice
containers) before defrosting.
Shallow packages will defrost more quickly than thick blocks.
Separate food pieces as soon as possible during or at the
end of the 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.
See "Cook Method Chart" for specific food items and amounts.
To Use: Place food on the turntable, and close the door. Touch
"Cook Method" on Main Menu, touch "Defrost," and then follow
screen prompts to make your selections, and to start the cycle.
Defrost programs are set by the weight of the food item in
pounds and/or ounces. If the weight is not known, touch "Weight
Unknown" on the touch screen, and follow the prompts.
Preparation instructions for each food item will be displayed
while you are programming the cycle.
