Conserving foodstuffs
You can conserve foodstuffs in the refrigerator compartment. The time for which
the food can be conserved in this way is usually stated on the package.
Caution!
Do not conserve warm food in the refrigerator compartment.
Do not place glass containers with liquid in the freezer compartment.
Food which can easily absorb tastes and odours and liquids and
products with a high alcohol content should be conserved in airtight
containers.
●
You can keep frozen food in the freezer compartment for several months as
temperatures of down to -18ºC are achieved in this area.
➤ Observe the following when using the device:
– Do not re-freeze products which are defrosting or have been defrosted,
consume them as soon as possible.
– Each individual drawer and shelf can bear an evenly divided load of
max. 20 kg.
– Wrap food in aluminium foil or cling film and shut-in in a suitable box with
a lid. This ensures that aromas, the shape and the freshness are better
conserved.
Making ice cubes
Caution!
Do not eat ice cubes or ice cream immediately after removing it from
the freezer compartment as this can cause cold burns.
Make ice cubes in the freezer compartment in the following manner:
➤ Fill the ice cube trays up to three quarters full with water.
➤ Place the ice cube trays in the freezer compartment.
Do not remove containers which have frozen in place to the base of the
