DEFROST
BY WEIGHT
The best defrosting time and power levels are automatically determined depending on
the food weight you enter. The feature provides two options:
FINE DEFROST: Use for thorough defrosting of frozen foods, when it is important to have
the center section defrosted as well as the outside. Examples for recommended use are:
whole chicken, roasts and steak.
QUICK DEFROST: Use to assist separation of frozen pieces of chicken or fish that need
preparation prior to cooking. Also, this defrost option is excellent for thawing items
such as frozen ground meat for use in spaghetti sauce or for taco meat.
Example: To thoroughly defrost 1.2 Ib of chicken pieces:

Defrosting Techniques:
• Remove food from wrapper to prevent holding steam and juice and place in a
microwave-safe baking dish or a roasting rack to catch drippings.
• Cover thin parts with aluminum foil to prevent overdefrosting.
• Because some food should be still icy in center, it is necessary to have standing time
after defrosting food in the oven to complete defrosting. Leave your food for a while
out of oven. The denser the food such as roasts, the longer standing time is required.
Note: • Weight can be entered up to 5.9 Ibs. If weight is entered more than 5.9 Ibs and
press START, a beep sounds to alert you to enter correct weight.
• The oven selects lib if a weight is not entered.
• Beep tone sounds 5 seconds during the defrosting cycle to signal that
food should be rearranged to improve defrosting performance. Open the
- door and rearrange the food. The oven continues the defrosting cycle to the
end if you do not open the door.
• Food can be defrosted in a styrofoam package.

Cooking
microwave
Principles
cooking requires
only one-quarter to one-third the time of
conventional cooking, the same cooking
principles become even more important.
Quantity
The more food being cooked, the longer
you will have to cook it. As a general
rule, when doubling a recipe, increase
the cooking time by about 50 percent.
When cutting a recipe in half, reduce the
time by about 40 percent.
Density
Dense foods, such as potatoes, roasts
and carrots, absorb microwave energy
less quickly than porous foods such as
ground beef or mashed
potatoes.
Therefore, denser foods take longer to
cook.
Shape
and
Size
Small pieces cook faster than large
ones. For even cooking, it is important to
have all the pieces the same size.
Evenly shaped pieces, round or
doughnut shaped, microwave best.
When cooking items of varying
thickness, arrange the thick portion near
the outer edge of the dish.
Moisture,
Sugar
and Fat
Food high in moisture, sugar or fat cook
faster than foods that are low in these
substances. Add a minimum of liquid to
moist foods. An excess amount of water

Techniques
such as eggs, oysters, snails, sausages,

Covering: Covering

Stirring:To help food cook more quickly
and evenly.
Turning Over: To help larger foods
such as roasts or whole chickens cook
more evenly.
Reheating: Place food that is denser/
larger/thicker to the outer edge and the
smaller/thinner
or more porous food to
the center.
Shielding:To
prevent overcooking, thin
or bony areas can be protected with
small strips of aluminum foil.
Standing Time: Foods continue
cooking even after removal from the
oven. Standing time is necessary to
allow foods to complete cooking.

Microwave recipes will likely call for less
liquid and cooking time.
