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,

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
