The convertible vegetable/meat
drawer can be adjusted to
properly chill meats or vegetables. The air inside the pan is
cooled to prevent "spot" freezing and can be set to keep meats
at the National Livestock and Meat Board recommended
of 28 ° to 32°F (-2 ° to 0°C).
IMPORTANT: To extend freshness, wrap meats in airtight,
materials before storing. Always store meat as
Adjusting the Control
The convertible control comes preset at the lowest meat setting.
To change a control setting: Move the control to the right
(colder) or to the left (less cold) as desired.
To store vegetables:
Set the control to VEG (all the way to the
left) to store vegetables at their optimal storage temperatures
(which need to be warmer than those for meat).
If food starts to freeze, move the control to the left
(less cold). Remember to wait 24 hours between adjustments.
Doing so gives the temperature
of the food time to change.
Meat Storage Guide

Rewrap if necessary. See the following chart for
storage times. When storing meat longer than the times given,
freeze the meat.

You can control the amount of humidity in the moisture-sealed

container and store in crisper.
HIGH (closed) keeps moist air in the crisper for best storage of

off bruised and discolored areas. Place in plastic bag or
plastic container and store in crisper.
