Ensure that no objects can fall onto the glass lid. To
use it, pull the drawer out fully until it reaches a stop.
Completely close the drawer if you are not using it.
■
Before closing the glass lid, ensure that there is no
debris in the vacuuming chamber.
■
Ensure that the seals are not damaged by pointed or
sharp objects.
■
Check that the seal on the glass lid is positioned
correctly. Ensure that the seal's contact surface is
clean and free from debris. Otherwise, this may
impair the functionality of the appliance.
Do not operate the appliance if the seal is defective.
If you do so, this may damage the appliance. Call
the after-sales service.
■
Observe the cleaning instructions.
■
In the event of a power failure, the vacuum remains
in the vacuuming chamber during the vacuuming
process. Never attempt to use a tool to open the
glass lid. Wait until the power supply has been reestablished and restart the vacuuming process
■
Do not vacuum food in its original packaging after
you have opened it. Only use bags that are suitable
for vacuuming food.
■
In the vacuum, liquids start to boil at low
temperatures. This produces vapour and may cause
the appliance to malfunction.
– Ensure that the food to be vacuumed is at the
lowest possible initial temperature – within the
range of 1 – 8 °C is best.
– Never vacuum liquids in the vacuuming bag at
the maximum vacuuming level.
– Recommendation: Vacuum liquids in the
vacuuming bag at vacuuming level 2.
– Carefully monitor the vacuuming process. It is
normal for some bubbles to form when
vacuuming liquids. Heat-seal the bag in good
time as soon as the bubble formation visibly
increases.
– Tip: You can also vacuum liquids in fixed,
commercially available vacuuming containers.
Use vacuuming level 3 for this. When vacuuming,
do not use any plastic bottles or other vessels
that contract during external vacuuming.

Getting to know your appliance
*Getting to know your
appliance
When the external vacuuming adaptor is attached, the
vacuuming drawer automatically detects which mode
has just been activated.
In the vacuuming drawer, you can vacuum food in
suitable bags and containers. This chapter provides you
with information about the assembly and the basic
functions of your appliance.
Vacuuming in the bag
Vacuuming containers and bottles
How does a vacuuming drawer work?
Structure of the vacuuming drawer
Vacuuming levels
Get i ng t o know your ap l i ance
During the vacuuming process, air is pumped out of the
vacuuming chamber and the bag. This produces a high
vacuum in the chamber. The higher the vacuuming
level, the less air remains in the chamber and the bag,
and the higher the pressure difference to the
environment.
If the selected vacuuming level has been reached, the
sealing bar is pressed against the silicone column on
the glass lid. During this, the bag is heat-sealed. After a
short cooling time, air flows back into the chamber,
creating a loud noise. During this process, the bag
suddenly contracts and encloses the food. The drawer's
glass lid then opens.
Different degrees of vacuum can be created with
vacuuming levels 1 to 3. The degrees that are reached
here vary depending on the use case: When vacuuming
in the container, the degrees of vacuum are lower and
therefore better suited for the particular food.

1Operating the appliance
Oper at i ng t he ap l i ance
Switch the appliance on and off
Touch the On/Off symbol to switch the appliance on or
off.
If you do not make any changes, the appliance
automatically switches off after 10 minutes.
Vacuuming in the bag
Vacuum the food in a suitable vacuuming bag in order
to preserve the food for longer, to marinate it or to
prepare it for sous-vide cooking.
Suitable vacuuming bag
Use the original vacuuming bags that are enclosed with
the appliance or can be ordered as accessories. These
bags are suitable for a temperature range of -40 °C –
100 °C. This means that they can be used for storing
food at low temperatures and also for cooking the
vacuum-sealed food that is contained in the bags. The
optimum heat-sealing time for this bag is level 2. The
bags are suitable for use in the microwave. Pierce the
bag before you heat it up in the microwave.
Only use bags that are suitable for vacuuming food.
Commercially available products are different when it
comes to the quality of the food, temperature
resistance, material and surface. Ensure that the bag is
used only for the purpose for which it is intended.
The heat-sealing time for the vacuuming bag always
depends on the material from which it is made. In most
cases, heat-sealing level 1 is sufficient for heat-sealing
thin bags. Vacuuming bags that are made from a
thicker material require a longer heat-sealing time at
heat-sealing level 2 or higher.
The length of the heat-sealing column limits the size of
the vacuuming bag that can be used. You should
therefore only use bags with a maximum width of
240 mm.
Filling the bag
Where possible, position the items of food in the
vacuum-sealing bag next to each other and not on top
of each other.
To ensure that the sealing seam is perfect, it is
important that the edge of the bag is clean and dry. To
ensure that the seam is perfect during the heat-sealing
process, it is important that there is no food residue
around the seam on the edge of the bag. Before you fill
the bag, you should therefore fold over its edge by
approx. 3 cm. Unfold the edge again once the bag has
been filled.

Operating the appliance
To ensure that you can keep track of your bags and the
food that is vacuumed within them, we recommend that
you make a note on the bag of the date of the
vacuuming along with the contents.
At the end of the process, the chamber is ventilated and
an acoustic signal sounds. You can now open the glass
lid and remove the heat-sealed vacuum-sealing bag
from the chamber.
Proceed as follows:
: Warning – Risk of burns!
1. Open the glass lid.
2. Place the vacuum-sealing bag in the compartment.
Notes
– Make sure that the food is at the lowest possible
initial temperature – within the range of 1 – 8 °C
is best.
Make sure that the air outlet is not covered so that
the pump can extract the air from the
compartment.
Make sure that the centre of the bag and the ends
of the bag are lying flat on top of the heat-sealing
column. This will ensure that the heat-sealing
seam is perfectly closed.
– Make sure that the open end of the bag is
protruding over the heat-sealing column by
approx. 3 cm but that it is not touching the lid
seal.
0LQPP
Note: Elevate the bag if necessary using an item
such as a chopping board to prevent the bag from
sliding down.
The sealing bar in the vacuuming chamber becomes
extremely hot if the appliance is used frequently and
there are long heat-sealing times. Never touch the hot
sealing bar. Keep children away from the appliance.
Notes
■
At the highest vacuuming level, the process may last
up to 2 minutes. After this time, the bag is heatsealed and the vacuuming level that is reached
lights up.
■
After vacuuming, check the heat-sealing seam on
the bag. Carefully try to pull the seam apart. If it
comes apart, select a higher heat-sealing level the
next time. If the seam is deformed, it has become
too hot. Select a lower heat-sealing level the next
time or leave the appliance to cool.
■
If you vacuum food in bags several times in
succession, the heat-sealing column becomes
increasingly hotter. This may impair the quality of the
heat-sealing seam. After several vacuuming
processes, you should therefore select a lower heatsealing time or leave the appliance to cool for
approx. 2 minutes between the processes.
Heat-sealing in good time
Use this function if you only want to pack your delicate
food in a bag so that it is air-tight, without the contents
sitting too tightly against the bag.
When air is being extracted from the bag, touch the
» symbol to end the process and heat-seal the bag
early.
The appliance displays the vacuuming level until it is
reached.
At the end of the process, the chamber is ventilated and
an acoustic signal sounds. You can now open the glass
lid and remove the heat-sealed vacuuming bag from the
chamber.
Note: To heat-seal the bag, the vacuum-sealing drawer
requires a specific degree of vacuum. If you touch the
» symbol first, the vacuum-sealing drawer pumps air
out of the chamber until this degree has been reached.
The bag is then heat-sealed.
3. Touch the 5 symbol to select a vacuum-sealing
level.
4. Touch the » symbol to select a heat-sealing time.
5. Tightly close the glass lid and hold it there.
6. Touch the Start symbol to start the vacuum-sealing
process.
The vacuum-sealing process will now start. The
vacuum-sealing level indicators will flash blue one after
the other until the value you selected has been reached.
The heat-sealing process will now start. The heatsealing level indicators will flash blue one after the other

Cancelling the vacuuming process
When air is being extracted from the bag, touch the
Stop symbol to cancel the process early.
The appliance displays the vacuuming level until it is
reached.
The bag is not heat-sealed. The lid opens slightly and
the chamber is ventilated. An acoustic signal sounds.
You can now remove the vacuuming bag from the
chamber.
Operating the appliance
Vacuuming in the container
Vacuum the food in a suitable vacuuming container in
order to preserve the food for longer.
Suitable vacuuming containers
Only use containers that are suitable for vacuuming
food. Commercially available products are different
when it comes to the quality of the food and the
material.
The vacuum hose that is enclosed with this appliance
has an inner diameter of 3 mm. To ensure that the hose
fits, you may require an adaptor for your container. In
many cases, these adaptors are already included with
the vacuuming containers.
Proceed as follows:
1. Open the glass lid.
en
Carrying out the drying program for vacuum
pump
When vacuuming food, the smallest volume of water
gets into the vacuum pump system. This effect is
exacerbated when you are vacuuming liquids or
extremely moist food. For this reason, the appliance
comes with a drying function, which further removes
any liquid that gathers in the pump.
If the ¢ symbol is lit white, it is recommended that you
run a drying cycle. However, at this point, you can
continue to use the appliance as normal if you wish.
If the ¢ symbol is lit red, you must run a drying cycle.
Proceed as follows:
1. Tightly close the glass lid and hold it there.
2. Touch the ¢ symbol.
Drying will now start. It will take between 5 and
20 minutes. The ¢ symbol will flash blue while drying is
in progress.You can close the vacuum-sealing drawer
while drying is in progress.
At the end of the program, the chamber is ventilated
and an acoustic signal sounds. You can now open the
glass lid.
Note: It may be the case that a single drying cycle is
not sufficient. If, after one drying cycle, the ¢ and
: symbols are lit red, there is still moisture in the pump
system. Wait until the : symbol goes out and start
another drying cycle.
2. Plug the vacuuming adaptor into the air outlet.
3. Secure the hose to the vacuuming adaptor and the
vacuuming container.
4. Touch the 5 symbol to select a vacuum-sealing
level.
5. Touch the Start symbol to start the vacuum-sealing
process.
The vacuum-sealing process will now start. The
vacuum-sealing level indicators will flash blue one after
the other until the value you selected has been reached.
The vacuuming levels stop pulsating as soon as the
target value has been reached. The vacuuming level
that has been reached lights up and an acoustic signal
sounds. You can now detach the hose from the
container and the external vacuuming adaptor.
Note: If larger bubbles form, cancel the vacuuming
process.
Cancelling the vacuuming process
When air is being extracted from the bag, touch the
Stop symbol to cancel the process early.

Vacuum for sous-vide cooking
You can use your vacuuming drawer to prepare food for
sous-vide cooking. Sous-vide cooking is a method of
cooking "under a vacuum" at low temperatures between
50-95 °C and in 100% steam or in a bain marie.
The vacuuming drawer is used to heat-seal the food in a
special air-tight, heat-resistant cooking bag.
: Warning – Health risk!
Sous-vide cooking is a method of cooking at low
temperatures. As a result, it is important that you always
follow the application and hygiene instructions below:
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
Only use high-quality, perfectly fresh food.
Wash and disinfect your hands. Use disposable
gloves or cooking/grill tongs.
Take extra care when preparing critical food, such
as poultry, eggs and fish.
Always thoroughly rinse and/or peel fruit and
vegetables.
Always keep work surfaces and chopping boards
clean. Use different chopping boards for different
types of food.
Maintain the cold chain. Make sure that you only
interrupt it briefly to prepare the food, and then
return the food in its vacuum-sealed bag to the
refrigerator for storage before you cook it.
Food is suitable for immediate consumption only.
Once the food is cooked, consume it immediately.
Do not store it after cooking – not even in the
refrigerator. It is not suitable for reheating.
Vacuuming bags
Use the enclosed vacuuming bags for sous-vide
cooking. You can reorder the vacuuming bags.
Do not cook the food in the bag you bought it in (e.g.
portions of fish). These bags are not suitable for sousvide cooking.
Where possible, position the items of food in the bag
next to each other and not on top of each other.
Vacuuming
Where possible, use the highest vacuuming level to
vacuum-seal the food. This is the only way to achieve
even heat transfer and therefore a perfect cooking
result.
Before cooking the food, check whether the vacuum in
the bag is intact. Make sure that:
■
■
■
■
■
There is no/hardly any air in the vacuuming bag.
The heat-sealing seam is perfectly sealed.
There are no holes in the vacuuming bag – do not
use the core temperature probe.
Pieces of meat or fish that have been vacuumed
together are not pressed directly against one
another.
As far as possible, avoid piling up vegetables and
desserts when vacuuming them.
If in doubt, place the food into a new bag and vacuum it
again.
10
Food should be vacuumed at most one day before it is
cooked. This is the only way to prevent the escape of
gases from the food (e.g. from vegetables) which inhibit
the transfer of heat, or to prevent the texture of the food
from changing, and thus altering how it cooks.
Fast marinating and flavouring
You can use your vacuuming bag to quickly add flavour
to or marinate food such as meat, fruit and vegetables.
Marinating your food in the traditional way usually takes
a long time and is not particularly intensive. When you
vacuum in a bag, the food's cell pores open and the
marinade that is added can be absorbed quickly. This
produces a more intensive taste in a much shorter time.
Storage and transport
Extend the storage time for food. Due to the low-oxygen
environment in the vacuum, freshly vacuumed food
remains edible for longer when it is stored correctly.
The freezer burn is lower when the food has been
frozen and vacuumed.
Re-seal food in glass containers (such as jams and
sauces). The vacuuming significantly increases the
storage time.
Notes
■
You must ensure that the glass containers that are
used are no taller than 80 mm. Taller containers may
damage the appliance's glass lid.
0D[PP
■
■
■
Only use screw-top jars that are robust and intact.
Only tighten the container by hand. The container is
automatically sealed by the vacuum-sealing process.
Not all jars or lids are suitable for being re-sealed
under a vacuum. After the vacuuming process,
check whether a vacuum has occurred: A lid that is
curving inwards and can only be opened with a lot of
force is an indication that the vacuuming process
has worked. If the lid makes a "clicking" sound when
it is pushed in and released and if it is easy to open,
no vacuum has occurred. Repeat the vacuuming
process or use more suitable screw-top jars.
Store food such as cheese, fish or garlic without any
unpleasant odours. The hermetic sealing that takes
place during vacuuming means that no unwanted
odours can get out and the flavour cannot be absorbed
by the other food.
Sealed vacuuming bags or vacuuming containers are
the ideal means of transport for liquid foods. They are
easy to handle, leak-proof and space-saving.
Settings table and tips
en
Recommended settings
When stored appropriately, vacuumed food remains
fresh for significantly longer. At higher vacuuming
levels, the quality, appearance and ingredients of the
food are better preserved.
The following table provides you with recommendations
for the vacuumed levels for different foods. Observe the
specific information on the recommended vacuuming
levels and on preparing the food.
Notes
■
Only use fresh food. Check the quality of the food
before vacuuming it.
■
Only vacuum cold food – within a temperature range
of 1 – 8 °C is best.
■
Start at the lowest of the recommended vacuuming
levels.
■
Check the quality of the food after you remove it
from storage. Do not use any food that is of dubious
quality.
