Cautions during use
Do not overfill the Kimchi storage containers.
As Kimchi is fermented, it increases in volume and the juice can overflow.
Also if the container lid is open on one end, the Kimchi will turn sour quickly
and mold may form. Fill the container only up to 80% and firmly close the
lid. If you use a plastic wrap or clean plastic wrap on top of the Kimchi
surface, you can store Kimchi for a longer period.
Do not pour Kimchi directly into the appliance nor store
Kimchi in plastic bags.
If you put Kimchi directly into the appliance, it may freeze, become contaminated,
or deteriorate in quality. Always make and store Kimchi only in the containers
provided. It can reduce the product performance or cause an electrical shock or fire.
After storing the Kimchi for 3-4 days, check if there is any spill.
As part of the initial fermenting process, the juice can overflow, in which case
you cannot store the Kimchi for a long period of time.
Do not mix various different types of food in
the left or right compartment.
If you select the left compartment to freezing and put frozen food, Kimchi,
vegetable/fruit all mixed into it, the Kimchi and vegetable/fruit may freeze.
Be sure to use enough salt when preparing Kimchi.
The amount of salt significantly affects the fermenting speed. A small amount of
Kimchi intended for immediate consumption can be prepared with little salt. But
large quantities of Kimchi to be stored for longer periods must contain more salt.
If you store vegetable/fruit while you are storing Kimchi,
be sure to keep them in the fresh vegetable storage container.
Fruits and vegetables may be frozen when stored for a long time or when
kept at the maximum storage temperature. Do not store tropical fruits
(banana, pineapple etc.) which can go bad at low temperature.
When putting the Kimchi container into and out of the appliance,
hold them gently by the handle.
The floor of the compartment can be damaged from the impact.
(The design of the Kimchi containers may be vary among different models.)
