Hints and Tips
Food storage
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it.
Storage in original food containers is advisable. Place already frozen foods into the freezer as
soon as possible, and be sure to:
 Not store too many items in the drawers.
 Allow air to circulate around each item.
 Not to store uncovered food.
Ensure the foods placed in the freezer are dated and labeled, and used them in date order, so you
can consume them at its best.
Energy saving advice
Do not place the appliance close to heat sources such as cookers, dishwashers or radiators. Make
sure the appliance is placed in a cool well-ventilated room so that the air can circulate very well.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by packing all foodstuffs into sealed packages. Avoid keeping the
door open for a long time, as warm air will enter the cabinet and the cold air inside will leak out of the cabinet,
which will cause energy wasting. Ensure that there is no obstruction preventing the door from closing properly.
In the event of a power failure
If there is a power failure while the appliance in operation, do not open the door. If the
temperature inside your freezer should rise, causing food to defrost, do not refreeze the food.
The following guidelines will assist you:
 Ice cream :Once thawed should be discarded.
 Fruit and vegetables: If soft should be cooked as soon as possible.
 Bread and cakes: Can be refrozen without danger.
 Shellfish: Should be refrigerated and used up quickly.
 Cooked dishes: i.e. casseroles, should be refrigerated and used up.
 Large pieces of meat: Can be refrozen if there are ice crystals remaining within them.
 Small joints: Should be cooked and then refrozen as cooked dishes.
 Chicken: Should be cooked and refrozen as a fresh dish.
