• do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a

strong flavour

Hints for refrigeration

Useful hints:
Meat (all types) : wrap in polythene bags and place on
the glass shelf above the vegetable drawer.
For safety, store in this way only one or two days at the
Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc..: these should be cov-
ered and may be placed on any shelf.
Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the special drawer(s) provided.
Butter and cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or poly-
thene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not packed,
must not be kept in the refrigerator.

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,


• prepare food in small portions to enable it to be rap-

idly 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 airtight;

• 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 stor-
age 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

• 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.
