Microwave defrost :"Chaos" ????

The defrost cycle on my microwave oven claims to use "Chaos".
Can this be a serious Engineering idea or is it just a flahsy sounding term, meaning nothing?

That's a smart idea. I looked for something a bit more substantial than that News item but, unfortunately, couldn't find anything.

I guess the point must be that, somehow, the temperature distribution is more even. I still don't see how the system can get around the Latent Heat of Fusion needed, though. Or perhaps that's not relevant - it's a quicker process but must use the same amount of energy.
