2 to 3 months
freezer compartment maintains the appropriate
3 months
storage temperature for approximately 12 hours;
3 to 4 months
during this time, we suggest you leave the door of
12 months
the compartment closed. Do not refreeze partially
thawed food.
Previously cooked food: reheat in the oven
without removing it from its aluminium container.

NOTE: Never store warm food in the freezer.
Allow hot foods to cool to room temperature for 30
