The defrost function is a great option when you want to reduce the defrosting time of your food.The time of defrost can be reduced by as much as 50% when compared with food being defrosted on a kitchen worktop. No heat is used in the oven while the fan circulates room temperature air (30°C) around the food which gives an even and quicker defrosting result.


  • Place your food in the middle shelf position (Shelf position 3) for best results.
  • Defrosting times may vary depending on the food types.
  • Please ensure foods are completely defrosted before cooking.
  • Do not cover the food as this can extend the defrosting time
