Your oven can be programmed for 99 minutes and 99 seconds (99.99). Always enter the seconds after the minutes, even if they are both zeros.
- Suppose you want to cook for 5 minutes at 100%.
|1. Enter cooking time by touching the numbers in sequence.|
|2. Touch the START pad.|
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 CHARTS, 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 To Set POWER LEVEL. Estimate defrosting time and press POWER LEVEL eight times for 30% power.
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food the rule of thumb is approximately 4 minutes per pound. For example, defrost 4 minutes for 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 minute increments at 30% 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.
To Set Power Level
There are eleven preset power levels.
Using lower power levels increases the cooking time which is recommended for foods such as cheese, milk and long slow cooking of meats. Consult cookbook or recipes for specific recommendations.
|Touch Power Level Pad Number of Times for Desired Power||Approximate Percentage of Power||Common Words for Power Levels|
|Power Level x 1||100%||High|
|Power Level x 2||90%|
|Power Level x 3||80%|
|Power Level x 4||70%||Medium High|
|Power Level x 5||60%|
|Power Level x 6||50%||Medium|
|Power Level x 7||40%|
|Power Level x 8||30%||Med Low / Defrost|
|Power Level x 9||20%|
|Power Level x 10||10%||Low|
|Power Level x 11||0%|
- Suppose you want to defrost for 5 minutes at 30%.
|1. Enter defrosting time by touching the numbers in sequence.|
|2. Touch POWER LEVEL pad eight times or hold down until the desired power level appears.|
|3. Touch the START pad|
When the defrost time is complete, a long tone will sound and 'END' will appear in the display.
