Manual Defrost
If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on the DEFROST CHART or is above or below the limits in the "Amount" column
on the DEFROST CHART, you need to defrost manually,
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously cooked, by using Power Level 3 Follow the exact 3 -step procedure
found under Time Cooking on page 9. Estimate defrosting time and press 3 for 30% when you select the power level
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food the rule of thumb is approximately 5 minutes per pound For example, defrost
5 minutes for 2-3 cups of casserole or 1 pound of frozen spaghetti sauce
Always stop the oven periodically to remove or separate the portions that are defrosted If food is not defrosted at the end of the
estimated defrosting time, program the oven in 1 mlnute increments on Power Level 3 until totally defrosted
When using plastic containers from the freezer defrost only long enough to remove from the plastic in order to place in a microwave
safe dish.
