with lukewarm water and some neutral soap so as to remove the typical smell of a brandnew product, then dry thoroughly.
Do not use detergents or abrasive powders, as these will damage the finish.
Daily use
Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartment is suitable for freezing fresh food and storing frozen and deepfrozen food for a long time.
To freeze small amount of fresh foods it is not necessary to change the present setting.
To freeze fresh food activate the FROSTMATIC function at least 24 hours before placing the
food to be frozen in the freezer compartment.
Place the fresh food to be frozen in all compartments except the bottom drawer.
The maximum amount of food that can be frozen in 24 hours is specified on the rating
plate , a label located on the inside of the appliance.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours: during this period do not add other food to be frozen.
Storage of frozen food
When first starting-up or after a period out of use, before putting the products in the
compartment let the appliance run at least 2 hours.
The freezer baskets ensure that it is quick and easy to find the food package you want. If
large quantities of food are to be stored, remove all drawers except for the bottom basket
which needs to be in place to provide good air circulation. On all shelves except for the top
shelf it is possible to place food that protrude until load limit stated on the side of the
middle section

Helpful hints and tips
In the event of accidental defrosting, for example due to a power failure, if the power has
been off for longer that the value shown in the technical characteristics chart under "rising
time", the defrosted food must be consumed quickly or cooked immediately and then refrozen (after cooling).
Thawing
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in the refrigerator com‐
partment or at room temperature, depending on the time available for this operation.
Small pieces may even be cooked still frozen, directly from the freezer: in this case, cooking
will take longer.
Removal of freezing baskets from the freezer
The freezing baskets have a limit stop to prevent
their accidental removal or falling out. At the time
of its removal from the freezer, pull the basket
towards yourself and, upon reaching the end
point, remove the basket by tilting its front up‐
wards.
At the time of putting it back, slightly lift the front
of the basket to insert it into the freezer. Once you
are over the end points, push the baskets back in
their position.
Helpful hints and tips
Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the freezing process, here are some important hints:
• the maximum quantity of food which can be frozen in 24 hrs. is shown on the rating
plate;
• the freezing process takes 24 hours. No further food to be frozen should be added during
this period;
• only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly cleaned, foodstuffs;
• 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;
Care and cleaning
9
• 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.
Hints for storage of frozen food
To obtain the best performance from this appliance, you should:
• make sure that the commercially frozen foodstuffs were adequately stored by the re‐
tailer;
• 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.
• Once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly and cannot be refrozen.
• Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the food manufacturer.
Care and cleaning
CAUTION!
Unplug the appliance before carrying out any maintenance operation.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling unit; maintenance and recharging must
therefore only be carried out by authorized technicians.
