To freeze fresh foods use the small freezing compartment
on the right of the dividing partition. This enables you to
separate already frozen foods from fresh foods. Always
make sure already frozen goods cannot defrost by coming

compartment is too small you can freeze part of the
products in the large storage section on the left of the
dividing partition.
Before freezing food the temperature in the freezer must be
-18 °C or colder.
Please observe the indicated freezing capacity on the
rating plate. The freezing capacity represents the
maximum amount of fresh goods that can be frozen

function off about 24 hours after inserting the food
products, for smaller quantities earlier.

freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;
special cans for frozen goods;
extra-thick aluminium foil
The following are suitable for closing bags and foil:
plastic clips, rubber bands or adhesive tape.
