Manual was delivered in a timely manner and was all in English as advertised. The manuals I received when we moved into our flat were in German, Italian, and French. Having never used a steamer before, and not speaking/reading German very well, I needed an English Manual. this was a huge help.
This GRUNDIG UV5A Owner Manual is not only an instruction manual but a total functional circuit description of the Multimeter and includes circuit diagram at the end pages. It is very helpful for repairing and calibrating the instrument. It is written in two languages English and German for international support. It was very easy to repair my unit with this document. Regards, Regis Pauly, Electrical Engineer.
The owner's manual was evetything I thought it would be. I was able to print it out using both sides of the paper in quick order, saving me a search online for a used one.

Freezing Fresh Food
It is important that fresh food placed in the freezer is frozen quickly and that the food already in the freezer is heated as little as possible. If more than 3-4kg of food is to be frozen: 1. Turn the thermostat control knob to the highest setting ("Fast freeze"). The freezer will now run continuously creating a sufficient reserve of the temperature required. 2. Turn the thermostat control knob up 6-24 hours before placing new food in the freezer depending on how much food is to be frozen. 3. Place the food in the freezer and leave the thermostat set at 'fast freeze' for a further 24 hours. 4. Then turn the thermostat control knob back again. The freezer will return to normal storage temperature. If you forget to turn the thermostat control knob back, the freezer will not be damaged, but energy will be wasted.
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 then refrozen. Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.

Frozen Food Storage
When first starting the freezer or if the freezer has been out of use for some time, we advise you to run your appliance for at least 2 hours before storing frozen food. Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the manufacturer. Do not open the lid frequently or leave it open longer than is necessary.
Do not put carbonated liquids in the freezer. Ice lollies, if consumed immediately after removal from the freezer can cause a low temperature skin burn. Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or frost/freezer burns. In the event of a power cut, do not open the lid. The food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is short and the freezer is full. Should the food begin to thaw it must be consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen.
