3. Then push the fast freezer switch again (the yellow light will go out and the switch turns to its original position). 4. The freezing tray is suitable for freezing smaller fruits (raspberry, strawberry, currant, etc.). Fruits should be put on the tray in thin layers without packaging. After freezing they can be packed and sorted out then placed into the storing compartments. If the 'fast freeze' switch is accidentally left on, the freezer will not be damaged, but energy will be wasted.
To Make Ice Cubes
1. Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place in the freezing compartment and leave to freeze. 2. To remove the cubes twist the tray or hold it under running water for a few seconds. Never try to free an ice tray that is frozen to the freezer compartment by using pointed or sharp edged objects.
Hints & Tips
To obtain the best performance from your freezer: Do not store warm food or evaporating liquid. Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it straight away. The use of an insulated container is advisable. When you arrive home, place the frozen food in the freezer immediately. Do not push food together too much, try to allow air to circulate around each item. Do not store food uncovered. Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated and labelled and used in date order to ensure that food is consumed at its best. Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food, salt reduces the storage time. Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and provide an airtight seal. Packaging which is swollen or has traces of refrozen water droplets on the pack could indicate that the product has not been kept at a suitable temperature and that it may have lost its original quality. Partially thawed food must not be refrozen, it must be consumed within 24 hours. Never exceed the storage times indicated by the manufacturer.
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 4 hours with the 'fast freeze' switch on before storing frozen food. Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the manufacturer. Do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than is necessary. Important 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 the food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is short and the freezer is full. Do not open the lid. Should the food begin to thaw it must be consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen. (See Hints and Tips)
Deep frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in a 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. 8
