Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & Poultry): wrap in
polythene bags and place on the glass shelf on the
top of the salad crispers.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the salad crispers.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene 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.
Frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in
the fridge or at room temperature depending on the
time available. Small food items may even be cooked
from frozen; in this case cooking will take longer.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
Frozen food storage
When first starting-up or after a period of non use,
before putting the food in the compartment let the
appliance run for at least two hours on the coldest
setting, then turn the thermostat knob to the normal
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the
Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than is absolutely necessary.
Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks etc.), in
the freezer compartment.
Ice Iollies, if consumed immediately after removal
from the freezer, can cause low temperature skin
Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands
are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or
In the event of a power cut do not open the door. The
food in the freezer will not be affected if the power
cut is short and if the freezer is full. Should the food
begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must
not be re-frozen. (See “Hits and Tips”)
Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of the
freezer as this is the coldest part.
The freezer contains two cold accumulators. Place
the cold accumulators in the FAST FREEZE
compartment. The cold accumulators increase
storage times in the event of a power cut or
Removal of these units wll increase the capacity of
the fast freezing compartment but will reduce
storage times in the event of a power cut or
