To heat water quickly and to thaw ice quickly requires microwaves of different frequencies. Ovens generate microwaves at a single frequency, so if it's good at the former, it'll be poor(er) at the latter. I never use the microwave to defrost stuff.

When I have stuck on bits of food between the ridges. I will pour off the grease (if there is any), then run under hot water while it is still hot. Then I will put in enough water to cover the ridges and ...
