IN THIS MODE the MW power level can not be adjust-
ed, and it will be fixed to 160w.
CHECK AND INSPECT THE FOOD REGULARLY. Experience will
give you the times needed for various amounts.
TURN LARGE JOINTS halfway through the defrosting
process.
FROZEN FOOD IN PLASTIC BAGS, plastic films or card-
board packages can be placed directly in the
oven as long as the package has no metal
parts (e.g. metal twist ties).
THE SHAPE OF THE PACKAGE alters the defrost-
ing time. Shallow packets defrost more
quickly than a deep block.
SEPARATE PIECES as they begin to defrost.
Individual slices defrost more easily.
SHIELD AREAS OF FOOD with small pieces
of aluminum foil if they start to
become warm (e.g. chicken legs
and wing tips).
BOILED FOOD, STEWS AND MEAT SAUCES defrost better
if stirred during defrosting time.
WHEN DEFROSTING it is better to under-thaw the
food slightly and allow the process to finish
during standing time.
STANDING TIME AFTER DEFROSTING ALWAYS IMPROVES the
result since the temperature will then be evenly dis-
tributed throughout the food.
