OPERATION F.I.R LAMP(OPTION) The emitted rays from the Far Infrared Lamp(F.I.R) prevents food from getting dry, and therfore prolongs the foods freshness. It also increases the nucleic acid in the food which helps to protect the smell and taste of the food. MORE EFFECTIVE FOOD STORAGE F.I.R is ideal for fish, poultry, storing unseasoned and raw meats, raw etc. It is excellent for keeping fruit and vegetables fresh for longer as the F.I.R prevents excessive fermentation and over-ripening. It is also useful for the storage of delicate foods which unsuitable for the freezer such shoots or vegetables are boiled eggs, bamboo used in condiment. as OPERATING The F.I.R lamp is temperature.
