food to be frozen in the two top compartments of the
freezer as this is the coldest part; if freezing only a
small amount of food, always use the top
compartment. Once the food is completely frozen

Frozen food storage
When you first start the freezer or if the freezer has
been out of use for some time, we advise you to run
your appliance for at least two hours in the «fast
freeze» mode before storing frozen food.
To obtain the best performance from this appliance,
we strongly recommend that you make sure that the
commercially frozen foodstuffs were adequately
stored by the retailer and, furthermore, be sure that
these frozen foodstuffs are transferred from the
foodstore to the consumer in the shortest possible
time (a temperature increase of the frozen food could
shorten its storage period).
It is also advisable not to exceed the storage period
indicated by the producer of the food.
Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than is absolutely necessary.
Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks
etc.), in the freezer compartment.
Ice lollies, if consumed immediately after
removal from the freezer, can possibly result in
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".
If there is a power failure during the storage of
frozen food, do not open the door during the
whole time of the power failure. If the freezer is
fully loaded, the frozen food will not be affected
if the power cut is of short duration; otherwise,
it is recommended to consume the food within
a very short time.

The numbers indicate storage times in months for
the appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether the
upper or lower value of the indicated storage time is
valid depends on the quality of the foods and pre-
treating before freezing.
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
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with a plastic ice cube tray.
Fill the tray 3/4 full to allow the ice to expand and
place it in the freezer. To turn out the ice cubes
simply give the tray a slight twist to release the
