freezer by removing all fittings. The food can be
stacked directly on the shelves and in the bottom
of the freezer compartment.
Removing the fittings
Pull out the frozen food container all the way,
lift at the front and remove.
Note when loading products
Wrap or cover food before placing in the appliance.
This will retain the aroma, colour and freshness of the
food. In addition, flavours will not be transferred
between foods and the plastic parts will not become
discoloured.
Allow warm food and drinks to cool down before
placing in the appliance.
Note
Avoid contact between food and rear panel.
Otherwise the air circulation will be impaired.
Food or packaging could freeze to the rear panel.
Fast cooling
Fast cooling sets the refrigerator temperature to the
coldest temperature setting for approx. 6 hours.

▯
To freeze food.
Note
Ensure that the freezer compartment door has been
closed properly. If the door is open, the frozen food
will thaw. The freezer compartment will become
covered in thick ice. Also: waste of energy due to high
power consumption!
Max. freezing capacity
Information about the max. freezing capacity within
24 hours can be found on the rating plate.
Packaging must not be damaged.
Use by the “use by” date.
Temperature in the supermarket freezer must
be -18 °C or lower.
If possible, transport deep-frozen food in an insulated
bag and place quickly in the freezer compartment.
When loading products
Freeze large quantities of food preferably in the very
top compartment where food freezes particularly
quickly and therefore also gently. Place the food over
the whole area of the compartments or in the frozen
food container. Food which is already frozen must not
come into contact with the food which is to be frozen.
If required, move the frozen food to the frozen food
container.
Storing frozen food
To ensure good air circulation in the appliance, insert
the frozen food container all the way.
If large quantities of food are to be stored in the
freezer, all the frozen food containers (except the
bottom one) can be taken out of the appliance and the
food stacked directly on the freezer shelves.
To remove a frozen food container, pull out all the way,
lift at the front and remove.
11
Freezing fresh food
Shelf life of frozen food
Depends on the type of food.
Freeze fresh and undamaged food only.
To retain the best possible nutritional value, flavour
and colour, vegetables should be blanched before
freezing. Aubergines, peppers, zucchini and
asparagus do not require blanching.
Literature on freezing and blanching can be found
in bookshops.
Note
At a temperature of -18 °C:
▯
Fish, sausage, ready meals and cakes and
pastries:
up to 6 months
▯
Cheese, poultry and meat:
up to 8 months
▯

desserts.
The following foods are not suitable for freezing:
Types of vegetables, which are usually consumed raw,
such as lettuce or radishes, eggs in shells, grapes,
whole apples, pears and peaches, hard-boiled eggs,
yoghurt, soured milk, sour cream, crème fraîche and
mayonnaise.
Fast 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 fast freezing several hours beforehand. As a rule,
4-6 hours is adequate.
If the max. freezing capacity is to be used, fast
freezing must be switched on for 24 hours before the
fresh produce is placed in the freezer compartment.
