First use
Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first time,
wash the interior and all internal accessories
with lukewarm water and some neutral soap so
as to remove the typical smell of a brand-new
product, then dry thoroughly.
Important! Do not use detergents or abrasive
powders, as these will damage the finish.
Daily use
Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartment is suitable for freezing
fresh food and storing frozen and deep-frozen
food for a long time.
To freeze fresh food activate the Fast Freeze
function at least 24 hours before placing the
food to be frozen in the freezer compartment.
Place the fresh food to be frozen in the two top
The maximum amount of food that can be frozen
in 24 hours is specified on the rating plate, a
label located on the inside of the appliance.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours: during this
period do not add other food to be frozen.
After 24 hours, when the freezing process is
completed, return to the required temperature
(see "Temperature regulation").
Storage of frozen food
When first starting-up or after a period out of
use, before putting the products in the compartment let the appliance run at least 12 hours on
the Fast Freeze setting.
If large quantities of food are to be stored, remove all drawers and baskets from appliance
and place food on cooling shelves to obtain the
best performance.
Warning! Make sure that foods do not
exceed the load limit stated on the side of
Important! In the event of accidental
defrosting, for example due to a power failure, if
the power has been off for longer that the value
shown in the technical characteristics chart
under "rising time", the defrosted food must be
consumed quickly or cooked immediately and
then re-frozen (after cooling).
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used,
can be thawed in the refrigerator compartment
or at room temperature, depending on the time
available for this operation.
Small pieces may even be cooked still frozen,
directly from the freezer: in this case, cooking
will take longer.
Ice-cube production
This appliance is equipped with one or more
trays for the production of ice-cubes. Fill these
trays with water, then put them in the freezer
Important! Do not use metallic instruments to
remove the trays from the freezer.
Cold accumulators
The freezer contains at least one cold accumulator which increases storage time in the event
of a power cut or breakdown.

Helpful Hints and Tips
Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the freezing process, here are some important hints:
• the maximum quantity of food which can be
frozen in 24 hrs. is shown on the rating plate;
• the freezing process takes 24 hours. No further food to be frozen should be added during this period;
• only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly
cleaned, foodstuffs;
• prepare food in small portions to enable it to
be rapidly and completely frozen and to make
it possible subsequently to thaw only the
quantity required;
• wrap up the food in aluminium foil or polythene and make sure that the packages are
• do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to touch
food which is already frozen, thus avoiding a
rise in temperature of the latter;
• lean foods store better and longer than fatty
ones; salt reduces the storage life of food;
• water ices, if consumed immediately after removal from the freezer compartment, can
possibly cause the skin to be freeze burnt;
• it is advisable to show the freezing in date on
each individual pack to enable you to keep
tab of the storage time.
Hints for storage of frozen food
To obtain the best performance from this appliance, you should:
• make sure that the commercially frozen foodstuffs were adequately stored by the retailer;
• be sure that frozen foodstuffs are transferred
from the foodstore to the freezer in the shortest possible time;
• not open the door frequently or leave it open
longer than absolutely necessary;
• once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly and
cannot be refrozen;
• do not exceed the storage period indicated
by the food manufacturer.
