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 10. 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
minute 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

Sensor Cooking

Sharp’s Sensor is a semi-conductor device that detects the
vapor (moisture and humidity) emitted from food as it heats.

The sensor adjusts the cooking times and power level for

various foods and quantities. It takes the guess work out of
microwave cooking.

Using Sensor Settings:

1. Room temperature should not exceed 95°F.


Exhaust vents are provided on the back of the unit for

propercooling and airflow in the cavity, To permit adequate
ventilation, be sure to install the unit so as not to block
these vents. There should be some space foraircirculation,


Be sure the exterior of the cooking container and the

interior of the oven are dry. Wipe off any moisture with a
dry cloth or paper towel.

Covering Foods:

Some foods work best when covered. Use the cover
recommended in the chart or recipe for these foods.
1. Casserole lid
2. Plastic wrap: Use plastic wrap recommended formicrowave

cooking. Cover dish loosely; allow approximately 1/2 inch
to remain uncovered to allow steam to escape. Plastic
wrap should not touch food,

3. Paper towel: Use paper towels to absorb excess fat when

cooking bacon. Line paper plate with paper towels and
cover bacon with additional paper towels.


Wax paper: Cover dish completely; fold excess wrap

under dish to secure. If dish is wider than paper, overlap
two pieces at least one inch to cover.

Be careful when removing any covering to allow steam to

escape away from you.
