With the hydro setting, a humid climate is created that is
suitable for storing loose-leaf lettuce, vegetables and fruit
with a high moisture content. When the drawers are full,
this creates a cool, fresh environment with an air humidity
of up to 90 %.
The humidity level in the compartment depends on the
moisture content of the food inside and on how often the
compartment is opened. The default setting is dry.
