So, you will have to put the item inside the oven and your food will be cooked to perfection. We also use our oven for defrosting a lot. That is why this oven has both auto and timed defrosting feature. If you are not sure about the type of food, just put it inside and enter the weight. The machine will handle the rest. You can set your desired time if you know how long it will take. If you put oversized dishes in the oven the turntable will stop rotating properly.
