SmartFresh drawers

The SmartFresh drawers provide the right combination of temperature and humidity. The result is freshness up to three times longer than in the other zones of the refrigerator.

Using the SmartFresh drawers

Storage temperatures

For fresh foods that are not adversely affected by cold, the best range is

32° - 37°F (0° - 3°C). This helps to keep the food fresh considerably longer than in the rest of the refrigerator, spoiling is minimal.

The temperature is set to approx. 35°F

(1.5°C).

^ Use the sensor button to select the desired drawer.

The selected sensor button turns yellow, and the sensor buttons for the food choices appear.

Humidity

The closer the humidity in the appliance matches the moisture content of the food, the more moisture the food will retain, and the fresher and crisper it will stay over a longer period of time.

The optimal humidity is determined on the basis of the food stored in the appliance.

Proper humidity is assisted by 2 humidity filters located above the

SmartFresh drawers. These filters allow air to pass through, yet retain moisture.

The most recently selected food type(s) appear yellow.

^ Use the sensor buttons to select the desired food type(s), so they appear yellow.

– Several food types can be selected at the same time.

– To delete a food type, simply press it again.

– Depending on the food types selected, the optimal humidity is determined for the crispers.

– The "deli" and "dairy" settings are the most energy efficient.

^ Touch the access button "p" to confirm the settings.

^ Place the food in the drawer.

16

For optimal storage conditions, it is always best to store similar foods together in one crisper.

Foods that are best stored under dry conditions

– fresh fish and shellfish, meats, poultry, sausage, dairy products and deli salads.

Foods that are best stored under moist conditions

– fresh produce, e.g., vegetables, lettuce, herbs, mushrooms, cabbage, fruit.

Remember that higher moisture levels can only be attained when the food is stored unpacked so air can circulate

freely.

SmartFresh drawers

17

Using the refrigerator efficiently

Different storage zones

Due to the natural circulation of air in the appliance, there are different temperature zones in the refrigerator.

Cold, heavy air sinks to the lowest section of the appliance. Make use of these different zones when placing food in the appliance.

This appliance uses a dynamic cooling feature to establish a constant temperature during cooling. As a result, the differences between temperature zones are less pronounced.

Leave some space between items, so air can circulate freely around them.

Make sure the ventilation slits are not covered - this is important for the cooling performance.

Warmest area

The warmest area is in the top section of the door (storage shelf). Use this area to store items such as butter and cheese.

Coldest area

The coldest area in the refrigerator is directly above the SmartFresh drawers.

The temperature in the drawers themselves is even colder.

Use these cold areas in the refrigerator for all highly perishable foods, such as:

– fish, meat, poultry,

– deli meats, store-bought meals,

– dishes or baked goods containing eggs or cream,

– fresh bread dough, pastry dough, cake batters,

– dairy products.

If storing high-proof alcohol, make sure it is tightly closed and stored upright.

Do not store cooking oil in the refrigerator door. Traces of oil can cause stress cracks to occur in the plastic components in the door.

Do not allow food to touch the rear wall of the appliance, it may freeze to the wall.

18

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 section.

Use the large freezer basket for large quantities of food.

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.

20

SuperCool

When the SuperCool function is activated, the appliance is cooled as quickly as possible (to a factory-preset temperature).

The temperature in the appliance now begins to fall, with maximum cooling in the zone selected.

SuperCool

When used with the refrigerator the

SuperCool function is ideal for the rapid cooling of drinks and refrigerating large quantities of food.

When used with the freezer the

SuperCool function is ideal for freezing large quantities of unfrozen food. The function should be switched on 4-6

hours before the fresh 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

^ Touch the SuperCool sensor button so that it turns white.

The temperature display for the zone selected returns to the original temperature setting.

The appliance now continues running at normal power.

^ Touch the sensor for the refrigerator or freezer (as desired) so it turns yellow.

Switching off SuperCool

The SuperCool function automatically switches off after:

Refrigerator: approx. 6 hours

Freezer: approx. 52 hours

The sensor button turns white, and the appliance continues running at normal power.

To save energy, the SuperCool function can be switched off early, once the food and/or drinks are sufficiently chilled.

^ Touch the SuperCool sensor button so it turns yellow.

In the temperature display for the zone selected, the new temperature setting appears:

Refrigerator: 35°F (2°C)

Freezer: -22°F (-30°C)
