Use

Freezer The appliance is a four-star freezer approved for freezing and storing frozen items of food...

Freezing To keep food at its best, items must be frozen to 18 C as quickly as possible... The freezing capacity of the freezer is stated on the nameplate in kg/24 hours (see fi g... 1 on page 3 and fi g... 10 on page 16)... Activating the Super Freeze function Activating the Super Freeze function reduces freezer temperature to 25 C... If items weighing 3 kg or more are to be frozen, the Super Freeze button should be activated about 24 hours in advance...

To freeze smaller quantities, it is suffi cient to activate Super Freeze just a couple of hours in advance, or even at the same time as items are placed in the freezer... There is no need to use Super Freeze when pre-frozen items are placed in the freezer or when small, single items are involved... Only freeze high-quality fresh products... Meat, poultry, fi sh, vegetables, fruit, dairy products and ready-made meals are suitable for freezing... Items with a high water content, e... g... lettuce, radishes, grapes, apples, pears and cucumbers, are not suitable for freezing...

Pack items to be frozen in airtight containers, freezer bags or similar... Freeze items in suitable portions... Do not freeze vegetables or meat in portions larger than 2... 5 kg... Keep packages dry to prevent them from freezing together... To ensure rapid freezing, make sure, as far as possible, that items placed in the freezer are not touching each other... Ensure that there is as little air in the packages as possible to prevent the surfaces of the items from drying out...

Items to be frozen should be placed in the freezing compartment or evenly distributed along the inner walls of the freezer...

Always remember to write the date, content Always remember to write the date, content and quantity on the packages before placing them in the freezer... It is a good idea to group items within the freezer... Keep vegetables in one place, meat in another, and so on...

There must be at least 5 mm clearance between the lid and items stored in the freezer...

Items stored in the baskets are highly visible and easily accessible (fi g... 6)...

Thawing Frozen vegetables and fruit require no thawing before use and can be immersed in boiling water directly from the freezer...

To thaw meat, it is advisable to take it out of the freezer the day before it is to be used and place it in a refrigerator to defrost... This ensures the best hygiene and maintains meat quality as much as possible...

Note: Glass bottles or cans containing carbonated (fi zzy) drinks must never be placed in the freezer as they may explode...

against ice and splashes... When all the frost and ice have melted, clean the inside of the cabinet using water with a mild, perfume-free detergent... Dry the freezer with a soft cloth...

8... Reconnect the power supply... If many items are to be returned to the freezer, activate the Super Freeze button...

9... Return items to the freezer approx... 5 minutes after having switched it on...

Remember to reinsert the stopper in the defrost water drain...

The items stored and the humidity of the air gradually cause frost and ice to form in the freezer... A thin layer of frost or ice does not affect freezer performance, but the thicker the layer, the higher the energy consumption... Small amounts of loose frost can be removed using a plastic scraper...

Never use electrical apparatus or sharp implements as these may damage the inside of the appliance...

When the layer of frost and ice exceeds 4-5 mm the freezer should be completely defrosted... It is recommended that defrosting be performed when there are no or only a few items stored in the freezer...

Proceed as follows: 1... Press the Super Freeze button 4-5

hours before defrosting... This lowers the temperature of the items stored to approx... 25 C, thus prolonging the length of time they remain frozen after having been removed from the freezer (see step 3 below)...

2... Disconnect the power supply... 3... Remove the items of food... Place them

in a refrigerator or wrap them up to keep them as cold as possible...

4... Keep the freezer lid open... 5... Position the partition under the defrost

water drain... 6... Place a bowl of hot (but not boiling)

water in the freezer, close the lid and wait approx... 30 minutes before removing loose frost with the plastic scraper...

7... To prevent water from damaging the fl oor during defrosting, it is advisable to check the defrost water tray from time to time and to cover the fl oor around the defrost water drain to protect
