Using the freezer efficiently

Freezing food

Fresh food should be frozen as quickly as possible. This helps maintain the nutritional value, vitamin content, appearance and taste of the food.

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.

Placing food in the freezer

Food to be frozen can be placed anywhere in the freezer.

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 unfrozen food, this could cause the frozen food to defrost.

17

Using the freezer efficiently

Defrosting

Frozen food can be defrosted in different ways:

– 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.

Cooling drinks quickly

To cool drinks quickly, switch on the

SuperCool function. See "SuperCool" for more information.

Do not leave bottles in the freezer for more than 1 hour, closed containers could burst.

18

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 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.

– 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.

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.

Switching on SuperCool

Switching off SuperCool

The SuperCool function automatically switches off after approx. 52 hours. The sensor button turns white, and the appliance continues running at normal power.

To save energy, you can switch off the

SuperCool function once the food is sufficiently chilled.

^ Touch the SuperCool sensor so that it turns white.

The temperature display returns to the original temperature setting.

The appliance now continues running at normal power.

^ Touch the SuperCool sensor so that it turns yellow.

The temperature now begins to fall, with maximum cooling performance.

The new temperature setting appears in the display -22°F (-30°C).

20

Ice cube maker

For the automatic ice cube maker to operate, it must be connected to the household water supply. See

"Plumbing".

Once the ice cube container is full, the ice cube maker switches off automatically.

Turning on the ice cube maker

^ Make sure that the ice cube container is under the ice cube maker, as far as possible.

Do not use the ice cube container for rapid cooling of food or drinks.

The ice cube maker may become blocked and be damaged.

Ice cubes will not be produced unless the container is completely closed.

^ Touch the sensor button for the ice cube maker so that it turns yellow.

As soon as the freezer has cooled to a freezing temperature, the ice cube container fills with water. Cold air is blown directly over the container.

As soon as the ice cubes are frozen, they fall into the ice cube container.

The ice cube maker can produce approx. 120 ice cubes within 24 hours.

Note: Ice production will vary due to your water supply temperature, pressure and hardness.

The production volume of the ice depends on the temperature in the freezer. The lower the temperature the more ice cubes produced.

After the appliance is turned on for the very first time, it can take up to 10 hours for the first ice cubes to drop out of the ice cube maker and collect in the container.

Do not use the first three containers of ice cubes from the ice cube maker.

Discard the ice produced in the first

24 hours after switching on the ice cube maker.
