Text excerpt from page 6 (click to view)
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. 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 food: follow the oven instructions, particularly regarding the placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in the oven. Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
Using the Crisper Bin
The humidity slide control adjusts the level of humidity inside the crisper bin.
OPEN - Low Humidity
igh H CLOSED -ity Humid
Storing Vegetables Place the vegetables in the crisper bin. Slide the humidity control to show fewer holes - this will result in higher humidity in the crisper bin. Storing fruit Place the fruit in the crisper bin. Slide the humidity control to show more holes - this will result in lower humidity in the crisper bin.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with one or more trays for ice-cubes trays. Fill the tray(s) 3/4 full to give the ice space to expand and place them in the freezer compartment. To release the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight twist. Do not use sharp or metallic instruments to remove the trays from the freezer.
Using the Chiller Compartment
The chiller compartment can be used to store meat, cheese or to chill drinks. The temperature can be made cooler than the rest of the refrigerator by adjusting the flap as shown.
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 flavour. 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 or chicken): wrap in polythene bags and place on 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 bottom salad drawer. 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. 6
LESS COLD MORE COLD
Less cold - Close the chiller compartment flap by pushing the lever upwards. Colder - Open the chiller compartment flap by pushing the lever downwards. Wrap meat in plastic bags, place it inside the chiller compartment and push the lever to the colder position (downwards). Meat should only be stored in this way for two days at the most. For longer storage, use the freezer compartment. Wrap cheese or other small food items in plastic bags, place them in the chiller compartment and push the lever to a medium setting. Place drinks to be chilled in the chiller compartment and push the lever to the colder position ensuring that the contents does not freeze, as the container may burst.
