Freezing and storing
frozen food
Buying frozen food
The packaging must not be damaged.
Note the sellĆby date.
Freezing food yourself
If you are freezing food yourself, use only
fresh, undamaged food.
The following foods are suitable for
Meat and sausage products, poultry and
game, fish, vegetables, herbs, fruit, cakes
and pastries, pizza, ready meals,
leftovers, egg yolk and eggĆwhite.
The following foods are not suitable
for freezing:
Eggs in shells, soured cream and
mayonnaise, green salads, radishes and
Blanching vegetables and fruit
To retain colour, flavour, aroma and
vitamin C, vegetables and fruits should
be blanched prior to freezing.
Blanching is the brief immersion
of vegetables and fruit in boiling water.
Literature on freezing and blanching
is available in bookshops.
The temperature in the supermarket
freezer should be -18 ВєC or lower.
Transport the frozen food in an insulating
bag, where possible and put it quickly into
the freezer compartment.
Storing frozen food
To ensure good air circulation in the
appliance, insert the freezer drawers all
the way.
Preferably freeze large quantities of food
in the top compartments, where food
freezes particularly quickly and therefore
also gently.
Do not cover the ventilation slots on the
rear panel with frozen food!
Freezing food
Freeze fresh, undamaged food only.
Keep food which is to be frozen away
from food which is already frozen.
To prevent food from losing its flavour
or drying out, place in airtight containers.
Max. freezer capacity
Information about the max. freezing
capacity within 24 hours can be found
on the rating plate.
How to wrap food correctly:
1. Place the food in the wrapping.
2. Press out air.
3. Seal the wrapping.
4. Label the wrapping with the contents
and date.
The following products are suitable
for wrapping food:
Plastic film, polyethylene blown film,
aluminium foil and freezer tins.
These products can be purchased from
your dealer.
The following products are not
suitable for wrapping food:
Wrapping paper, greaseproof paper,
cellophane, refuse bags and used
shopping bags.
The following products are suitable
for sealing the wrapped food:
Rubber bands, plastic clips, string,
coldĆresistant adhesive tape or similar.
Bags and polyethylene blown film can be
sealed with a film sealer.
Shelf life of frozen food
Depends on the type of food.
At a temperature setting of -18 В°C:
S Fish, sausage, ready meals and cakes
and pastries:
up to 6 months
S Cheese, poultry and meat:
up to 8 months
S Vegetables and fruit:
up to 12 months
Super freezing
Food should be frozen solid as quickly
as possible in order to retain vitamins,
nutritional value, appearance and flavour.
To prevent an undesirable temperature
rise when placing fresh food in the freezer
compartment, switch on super freezing
several hours beforehand. As a rule,
4-6 hours is adequate.
If max. freezing capacity is to be utilised,
24 hours are required. Smaller quantities
of food (up to 2 kg) can be frozen without
super freezing.
