Improper Defrosting

 How to fix

Is cookware approved for microwave use? 

Not all dishes are microwave safe. Check the specifications for the cookware. If it is not approved for microwave cooking, do not use to cook food in MWO.

Most heat resistance, nonmetallic cookware is safe for use in your microwave oven.

Some dish (melamine, some ceramic dinnerware, etc) absorb microwave energy,
become too hot to handle  and slowing cooking time. Cooking in metal containers,
not designed for microwave use, could damage the oven, as could containers with
hidden metal (twist-ties, foil lining, staples, metallic glaze or trim).

Was food turned over during cooking?

The food must be turned (if not on a turntable) and stirred during cooking. This will allow for proper cooking. If not stirred, some areas will cook faster than others. Stirring and turning food will help to distribute the heat from cooking throughout the dish.

Was the time/cooking power
level set correctly?

If the time and power levels were not set properly, the unit will not cook food properly. Each unit has different instructions for operating the unit. Refer to the Owner’s Manual for instructions specific to the model in question.

The auto defrost feature provides you with the best defrosting method for frozen foods.
For better result, let food stand after defrosting.
