of the arrow until it is freed and remove the retainers.
Electrical connection
B
Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the special drawer(s)
provided.
To obtain the best performance from this appliance,
you should:
•
make sure that the commercially frozen
foodstuffs were adequately stored by the retailer;
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should
be stored in the bottle rack on the door.
•
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not
packed, must not be kept in the refrigerator.
be sure that frozen foodstuffs are transferred
from the foodstore to the freezer in the shortest
possible time;
•
not open the door frequently or leave it open
longer than absolutely necessary.
Hints for freezing
•
To help you make the most of the freezing process,
here are some important hints:
Once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly and
cannot be refrozen.
•
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by
the food manufacturer.
•
the freezing process takes 24 hours. No further
food to be frozen should be added during this
period;
For operation with different voltages, a suitably sized
auto-transformer must be used.
•
only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly
cleaned, foodstuffs;
The appliance must be earthed.
•
prepare food in small portions to enable it to be
rapidly and completely frozen and to make it
possible subsequently to thaw only the quantity
required;
•
wrap up the food in aluminium foil or polythene
and make sure that the packages are airtight;
•
do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to touch food
which is already frozen, thus avoiding a rise in
temperature of the latter;
•
lean foods store better and longer than fatty
ones; salt reduces the storage life of food;
•
water ices, if consumed immediately after
removal from the freezer compartment, can
possibly cause the skin to be freeze burnt;
•
it is advisable to show the freezing-in date on
each individual pack to enable you to keep tab of
the storage time;
