Storing food in the refrigerator

260437

 Appropriate use of the appliance, appropriate food 

packaging, maintaining the appropriate temperature 
and observing the hygienic guidelines will affect 
decisively the quality of food storage.

 Observe the best before dates indicated on the 

product packaging.

 Food stored in the refrigerator should be placed in 

closed containers or otherwise suitably packed to 
prevent emitting scent and moisture. 

 Do not store infl ammable, volatile, and explosive 

substances in the refrigerator. 

 Bottles with high alcohol content should be tightly 

sealed and stored in an upright position.

 Some organic solutions, essential oils in lemon and 

orange peel, butter acid, etc. may damage the plastic 
surfaces in case of a prolonged contact, causing 
premature ageing of these materials. 

 Unpleasant smell warns of poor appliance cleanliness 

or deteriorated food (see Cleaning and Maintenance).

 Remove perishables from the refrigerator before a 

longer period of absence from home.

The equipment depends on the models.
•  The shelves can be inserted to any of the shelf guides in the 

refrigerator interior. They are protected against pulling out. 
To remove a shelf from the refrigerator, lift is slightly at the 
front, tilt as required, and pull it out. Food that perishes quickly 
should be kept at the back of the shelf where the temperatures 
are lower. 

•   Certain models are equipped with wire bottle rack which 

enables placing of bottles on the cork. It is safeguarded 
against pulling out. It may be pulled out only if empty, by lifting 
the front part and pulling it towards you. Place the bottle rack 
in the appliance in such way to avoid obstruction of door 
closing by the length of the stacked bottles.

  Maximum load of the rack is 9 bottles of 0,75 l, or 13 kg of 

total mass - see label at the right side of the interior of the 
appliance.

•  The bin / drawer at the bottom of the refrigerator compartment, 

under the glass shelf, is intended for storing fruit and 
vegetables. It provides humidity, thus preventing the food from 
dehydrating. The food must be appropriately packaged in 
order to prevent emitting or receiving smell and moisture.
