Hints for freezing

To help you make the most of the freezing process, here
are some important hints:
the maximum quantity of food which can be frozen in
24 hrs. is shown on the rating plate;
the freezing process takes 24 hours. No further food
to be frozen should be added during this period;
only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly cleaned,
prepare food in small portions to enable it to be rapidly
and completely frozen and to make it possible subse-
quently to thaw only the quantity required;
wrap up the food in aluminium foil or polythene and
make sure that the packages are airtight;
do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to touch food which
is already frozen, thus avoiding a rise in temperature of
the latter;
lean foods store better and longer than fatty ones; salt
reduces the storage life of food;
water ices, if consumed immediately after removal
from the freezer compartment, can possibly cause the
skin to be freeze burnt;
it is advisable to show the freezing-in date on each in-
dividual pack to enable you to keep tab of the storage
on the inner door or special card (if supplied) you will
find sketches of various animals and food types to-
gether with the recommended storage time (in months)
from the time of freezing;
do not put carbonated liquids (fizzy drinks, etc.) in
the freezer compartment as they may burst.
Hints for storage of frozen food
To obtain the best performance from this appliance, you
make sure that the commercially frozen foodstuffs
were adequately stored by the retailer;
be sure that frozen foodstuffs are transferred from the
foodstore to the freezer in the shortest possible time;
not open the door frequently or leave it open longer
than absolutely necessary.
Once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly and cannot
be refrozen.
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the food
