Select the defrost programme that corresponds to the type and quantity of food that you wish to defrost and the “automatic” function will programme the required defrosting time.
The defrost time is automatically calculated based on the weight of the food. It may vary, depending on the initial temperature of the food (times are based on frozen food at -18°C).
For food weighing more than 350 g (except bread), a beep sounds mid way through the automatic defrosting programme, to remind you that it is time to turn the food over, to obtain the best results and “turn” is shown in the display. After turning the food over, close the door and press the button to continue the defrost programme.
With the automatic defrost function, the defrost time cannot be modified.
For foods that do not appear in the food category recommendations, use the 200W MICROWAVE function or d1. Refer to the notes below for the recommended programme times.
