6. HINTS AND TIPS
6.1 Hints for energy saving
• Freezer: The internal configuration of
the appliance is the one that ensures
the most efficient use of energy.
• Fridge: Most efficient use of energy is
ensured in the configuration with the
drawers in the bottom part of the
appliance and shelves evenly
distributed. Position of the door bins
does not affect energy consumption.
• Do not open the door frequently or
leave it open longer than necessary.
• Freezer: The colder the temperature
setting, the higher the energy
consumption.
• Fridge: Do not set too high
temperature to save energy unless it
is required by the characteristics of
the food.
• If the ambient temperature is high
and the temperature control is set to
low temperature and the appliance is
fully loaded, the compressor may run
continuously, causing frost or ice
formation on the evaporator. In this
case, set the temperature control
toward higher temperature to allow
automatic defrosting and to save
energy this way.
• Ensure a good ventilation. Do not
cover the ventilation grilles or holes.
6.2 Hints for freezing
• Activate Frostmatic function at least
24 hours before placing the food
inside the freezer compartment.
• Before freezing wrap and seal fresh
food in: aluminium foil, plastic film or
bags, airtight containers with lid.
• For more efficient freezing and
thawing divide food into small
portions.
• It is recommended to put labels and
dates on all your frozen food. This will
help to identify foods and to know
when they should be used before
their deterioration.
• The food should be fresh when being
frozen to preserve good quality.
Especially fruits and vegetables
should be frozen after the harvest to
preserve all of their nutrients.
• Do not freeze bottles or cans with
liquids, in particular drinks containing
carbon dioxide - they may explode
during freezing.
• Do not put hot food in the freezer
compartment. Cool it down at room
temperature before placing it inside
the compartment.
• To avoid increase in temperature of
already frozen food, do not place
fresh unfrozen food directly next to it.
Place food at room temperature in
the part of the freezer compartment
where there is no frozen food.
• Do not eat ice cubes, water ices or ice
lollies immediately after taking them
out of the freezer. Risk of frostbites.
• Do not re-freeze defrosted food. If the
food has defrosted, cook it, cool it
down and then freeze it.

6.4 Shopping tips
6.3 Hints for storage of frozen
food
After grocery shopping:
• The medium temperature setting
ensures good preservation of frozen
food products.
Higher temperature setting inside the
appliance may lead to shorter shelf
life.
• The whole freezer compartment is
suitable for storage of frozen food
products.
• Leave enough space around the food
to allow air to circulate freely.
• For adequate storage refer to food
packaging label to see the shelf life of
food.
• It is important to wrap the food in
such a way that prevents water,
humidity or condensation from
getting inside.
• Ensure that the packaging is not
damaged - the food could be
deteriorated. If the package is swollen
or wet, it might have not been stored
in the optimal conditions and
defrosting may have already started.
• To limit the defrosting process buy
frozen goods at the end of your
grocery shopping and transport them
in a thermal and insulated cool bag.
• Place the frozen foods immediately in
the freezer after coming back from
the shop.
• If food has defrosted even partially,
do not re-freeze it. Consume it as
soon as possible.
• Respect the expiry date and the
storage information on the package.

6.6 Hints for fresh food
refrigeration
• Good temperature setting that
ensures preservation of fresh food is a
temperature less than or equal to
+4°C.
Higher temperature setting inside the
appliance may lead to shorter shelf
life of food.
• Cover the food with packaging to
preserve its freshness and aroma.
• Always use closed containers for
liquids and for food, to avoid flavours
or odours in the compartment.
• To avoid the cross-contamination
between cooked and raw food, cover
the cooked food and separate it from
the raw one.
• It is recommended to defrost the food
inside the fridge.
• Do not insert hot food inside the
appliance. Make sure it has cooled
down at room temperature before
inserting it.
• To prevent food waste the new stock
of food should always be placed
behind the old one.
13
6.7 Hints for food refrigeration
• Meat (all types): wrap in a suitable
packaging and place it on the glass
shelf above the vegetable drawer.
Store meat for at most 1-2 days.
• Fruit and vegetables: clean
thoroughly (eliminate the soil) and
place in a special drawer (vegetable
drawer).
• It is advisable not to keep the exotic
fruits like bananas, mangos, papayas
etc. in the refrigerator.
• Vegetables like tomatoes, potatoes,
onions, and garlic should not be kept
in the refrigerator.
• Butter and cheese: place in an airtight
container or wrap in an aluminium foil
or a polythene bag to exclude as
much air as possible.
• Bottles: close them with a cap and
place them on the door bottle shelf,
or (if available) on the bottle rack.
• Always refer to the expiry date of the
products to know how long to keep
them.
7. CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
7.1 Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first
time, the interior and all internal
accessories should be washed with
lukewarm water and some neutral soap
to remove the typical smell of a brandnew product, then dried thoroughly.
CAUTION!
Do not use detergents,
abrasive powders, chlorine
or oil-based cleaners as they
will damage the finish.
CAUTION!
The accessories and parts of
the appliance are not
suitable for washing in a
