5.2. Dual cooling system
Your refrigerator is equipped with two separate
cooling system for fresh food compartment and
frozen food compartment respectively. Thus, air
and odor in the fresh food compartment and
frozen food compartment do not get mixed. Thanks
to these two separate cooling systems, cooling
speed is much higher then other refrigerators.
Also additional power saving is provided since the
defrosting is performed individually.
5.3. Freezing fresh food
• Wrap the food or place them in a covered
container before putting them in the refrigerator.
• Hot food and beverages must cool down to the
room temperature before putting them in the
refrigerator.
• The foodstuff that you want to freeze must be
fresh and in good quality.
• Divided the food into portions according to your
family's daily or meal based consumption needs.
• Pack the food in an airtight manner to prevent
them from drying even if they are going to be
stored for a short time.
• Materials to be used for packaging must be
tear-proof and resistant to cold, humidity, odor,
oils and acids and they must also be airtight.
Moreover, they must be well closed and they
must be made from easy-to-use materials that
are suitable for deep-freezers.
• Frozen food must be used immediately after
they are thawed and they should never be refrozen.
• Do not freeze too large quantities of food at one
time. The quality of the food is best preserved
when it is frozen right through to the core as
quickly as possible.
• Placing warm food into the freezer compartment
causes the cooling system to operate
continuously until the food is frozen solid.
