Freezer tray
Use the freezer tray to freeze berries and vegetables.
After about 4 hours the food will be thoroughly
frozen and can then be packaged normally. Food
that is frozen in this way will not stick together,
enabling you to use only the amount required.
Ice cubes
Fill the ice tray to max. 3/4 since water expands as it
freezes. Release the ice cubes by twisting the ice
If ice cubes are kept for a long time, they will dry
out and the taste is affected. Thus, throw away old
ice cubes and prepare new ones when needed.
Use Ice-twist to prepare and keep ice cubes. Fill the
container to max. 3/4 with water since water expands
as it freezes. Release the ice cubes and let them fall
into the container by twisting the knobs. Then fill up
with water again.

Hints and Tips

Saving energy

Pay careful attention to where the cabinet is
placed. See the section "Installation". When
installed correctly, the cabinet will consume less
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods, or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet, and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.

door from closing properly.
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of
the refrigeration unit
It is advisable to periodically clean the
refrigeration system at the back of the appliance

Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should
be placed in the fridge before being transfered to
the freezer.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages

Carefully follow the advice on freezing products
in the section "Using the freezer". This will
prevent wasting energy.
Do not set the temperature too low in the freezer.
