Using the freezer efficiently
Freezing food
Placing food in the freezer
Fresh food should be frozen as quickly
as possible. This helps maintain the
nutritional value, vitamin content,
appearance and taste of the food.
Food to be frozen can be placed
anywhere in the freezer.
Never refreeze partially or fully
defrosted food. Consume defrosted
food as soon as possible, it will lose its
nutritional value and spoil if left for too
long. Do not refreeze defrosted food
unless it has been cooked.
Before placing food in the freezer
^ When you are planning to freeze
large amounts of food (more than
4 ½ lbs [2 kg]), switch on the
SuperCool function ahead of time
(see "SuperCool").
This will provide the food already in
the freezer with a protective boost of
cold air.
The freezer baskets can hold a
maximum of 35 lbs (16 kg) of frozen
food.
^ Spread the food to be frozen across
the bottom of the freezer basket or
across the shelves, so that it will
freeze through to the core as quickly
as possible.
^ When placing items in the freezer,
make sure the packaging and
containers are dry, to keep them from
sticking together when frozen.
When freezing, try not to let frozen
food come into contact with fresh
food, this could cause the frozen
food to defrost.
17
Using the freezer efficiently
Defrosting
Cooling drinks quickly
Frozen food can be defrosted in
different ways:
To cool drinks quickly, switch on the
SuperCool function. See "SuperCool" for
more information.
– in a microwave oven,
– at room temperature,
– in the refrigerator (the cold given off
by the frozen food helps to keep the
other food cold),
– in a steam oven.
Poultry It is especially important to
observe proper hygiene when
defrosting poultry. Never save the liquid
from defrosted poultry. Drain it away
and promptly wash the container, the
sink and your hands. Danger of
salmonella poisoning.
Fruit should be defrosted at room
temperature in its packaging, or in a
covered bowl.
Most vegetables can be cooked while
still frozen. Simply place directly into
boiling water or hot oil.

Do not leave bottles in the freezer for
more than 1 hour, closed containers
could burst.
Using the freezer efficiently
Freezing tips
– The following are examples of foods
suitable for freezing:
Fresh meat, poultry, game, fish,
vegetables, herbs, fresh fruit,
pastry/dough, leftovers, and a range
of pre-cooked meals.
– The following examples of foods not
suitable for freezing:
Lettuce, radishes, sour cream,
mayonnaise, eggs in their shells,
onions, whole raw apples and pears.
– To retain color, taste and vitamin C,
vegetables should be trimmed,
washed, and blanched.
To blanch: bring a large saucepan of
water to a boil, then submerge the
vegetables in rapidly boiling water
for 2-3 minutes, depending on type.
Remove, and plunge into ice-cold
water to cool quickly. Drain and pack
for freezing.
– Lean meat freezes better than fatty
meat, and can be stored for
considerably longer.
– To prevent chops, steaks, cutlets or
rolled meats from freezing together in
solid blocks when packed, separate
with a sheet of plastic freezer wrap.
– Do not place hot foods or drinks in
the freezer. This causes already
frozen food to thaw, and increases
the energy consumption
considerably. Allow hot foods and
drinks to cool down before placing
them in the freezer.
Packing tips
^ Unsuitable packing material
- wrapping paper
- greaseproof paper
- cellophane
- garbage bags
- plastic shopping bags
Suitable packing material
- plastic freezer bags/wrap
- aluminum foil
- freezer containers
^ To help prevent freezer burn, expel
as much air as possible from
bags, etc., before sealing them.
^ Close the packaging tightly with
- plastic clips
- twist ties
- rubber bands
^ Mark the package to indicate the
contents and the date of freezing.
– Do not season fresh foods or
blanched vegetables before
freezing. Cooked food can be lightly
seasoned before freezing, but care
should be taken as the taste of some
spices alters when frozen.
19
SuperCool
When the SuperCool function is
activated, the appliance is cooled as
cold as possible (to a factory-preset
temperature).
SuperCool
The SuperCool function is ideal for
freezing large quantities of unfrozen
food. Ideally the function should be
switched on 4 - 6 hours before the food
is placed in the freezer.
If the max. freezing capacity is used,
24 hours are recommended.
This helps food to freeze quickly and
retain its nutrients, vitamins, flavor and
appearance.

Water filter
The water filter improves the taste and
smell of ice cubes by removing chlorine
and other substances from the
incoming tap water.
– Depending on how many ice cubes
are produced, the filter will need to
be changed approximately every 6
months.
It is important to change the water
filter regularly.
To avoid serious illness or death, do
not use water that is
microbiologically or chemically
unsafe or of unknown quality without
adequate disinfection or other
treatment before or after use of a
filter.
Note:
– After installing a new water filter and
switching on the ice maker, discard
the first 24 hours' worth of ice
production.
– If the ice maker has not been used
for a prolonged time discard any ice
cubes in the freezer, empty the
container and discard the ice
production of the next 24 hours.
– If the appliance or ice maker have
not been routinely used for several
weeks or months, or if the ice cubes
have an unpleasant odor, change
the water filter.
Note: Air trapped in the system may
cause water and the filter cartridge
to eject forcefully. Use caution when
removing.
