Food management

Storing food

WARNING
Danger of fire
Do not use electrical appliances inside the food storage compartments of the appliance, unless they are of the type recommended by the manufacturer.

Note
Insufficient ventilation results in an increase in energy consumption and reduction of the refrigerating performance
Always keep the air slots unobstructed.

When storing food, remember these basic rules:

  • Do not obstruct the air vents on the back wall.
  • Do not obstruct the air vents on the fan.
  • Food is well sealed.
  • Raw meat or fish is in clean, sealed containers so that other food cannot be touched or drip on them.
  • Food is stored spaced apart to ensure good air circulation.

Note
Failure to follow these guidelines can lead to food perishing.

Freezer
This provides a dry, frosty storage climate at -18 °C. A frosty climate is suitable for storing frozen food and goods for several months, preparing ice cubes, or freezing fresh food.

Freezing food
You can freeze as many kilograms of fresh food within 24 hours as indicated on the nameplate (see 9.5 Rating plate) under “freezing capacity … kg/24h”.
To ensure that the food freezes quickly to the core, keep to the following quantities per pack:

  • Fruit, vegetables up to 1 kg
  • Meat up to 2.5 kg

Before freezing, please note the following:

  • SuperFrost is activated (see 6.3 Functions) when the amount of food to freeze exceeds approx. 2 kg.
  • With a small volume of frozen goods: SuperFrost is activated approx. 6 hours prior.
  • With the maximum volume of frozen goods: SuperFrost is activated approx. 24 hours prior.

Defrosting food

  • in the fridge compartment
  • in the microwave
  • in the oven/fan oven
  • at room temperature

WARNING
Danger of food poisoning!
Do not re-freeze defrosted food.
Remove only the food you need for now.
Use defrosted food as quickly as possible

Freezer tray
Use the freezer tray for berries, herbs, vegetables and other small goods without them freezing together in the process. The food keeps its shape and is easier to separate into portions later on.
You can also store the freezer packs in the freezer tray to save space.
Spread food, unsealed, at a good distance apart, over the whole surface of the freezer tray.

Storage times

The storage times given are guidelines
Food with a “use by” date must still be consumed by the date indicated on the package

Guidelines for storage periods for various foods
Ice cream at -18 °C 2 to 6 months
Sausage, ham at -18 °C 2 to 3 months
Bread, bakery products at -18 °C 2 to 6 months
Game, pork at -18 °C 6 to 9 months
Fish, fatty at -18 °C 2 to 6 months
Fish, lean at -18 °C 6 to 8 months
Cheese at -18 °C 2 to 6 months
Poultry, beef at -18 °C 6 to 12 months
Vegetables, fruit at -18 °C 6 to 12 months

Energy saving

  • Always ensure good ventilation. Do not obstruct ventilation openings or grilles.
  • Never block air slits in the fan.
  • Do not install the appliance in direct sunlight or next to a stove, heater or similar heat source.
  • Energy consumption depends on installation conditions such as the ambient temperature (see 1.3 Range of appliance use) . A warmer ambient temperature can increase the energy consumption.
  • Avoid opening the appliance door for any longer then necessary
  • The lower the temperature is set the higher the energy consumption.
  • All food stored in the appliance should be well wrapped and covered. This prevents frost buildup.
  • Insertion of warm foods: first let the food cool down to room temperature.

EasyTwist-Ice*

The EasyTwist-Ice produces ice cubes when the water tank is inserted.
The EasyTwist-Ice is used exclusively for the production of ice cubes in standard household quantities.

Note
Do not change the position of the EasyTwist-Ice.
Make sure that the following conditions are met:

  • The EasyTwist-Ice has been cleaned (see 8.2.5 Cleaning the EasyTwist-Ice*)
  • The water tank has been cleaned.
  • The EasyTwist-Ice drawer is fully inserted.

Filling the water tank

WARNING
Contaminated water! Poisoning.
Fill with potable water only.

NOTICE
Sugary liquids!
Damage to the EasyTwist-Ice.
Fill with cold drinking water only.

Note
Using filtered, decarbonized water ensures the best-tasting drinking water for your ice cubes.
This water quality can be achieved using a table water filter of the kind available in trade retail outlets.
Always fill the water tank only with filtered, decarbonized drinking water.
The water for the EasyTwist-Ice is supplied from a water tank.

Liebherr FNd 525i Prime NoFrost Freestanding freezer - Equipment 5Fig. 31

Lift up the water tank at the rear Fig. 31 (1) and take it out upwards Fig. 31 (2).
Fill with drinking water up to the mark.
Insert the water tank by reversing the steps described above.

Producing ice cubes
The production capacity depends on the freezer temperature.
The lower the temperature, the more ice cubes that can be produced in a certain period.
Maximum capacity of the ice cube drawer – 40 cubes (2x ice cube production).
Time required for ice cube production – at least 5 hours.

Releasing the ice cubes
Turn the knob to the right to its stop limit.
If necessary, repeat several times and turn the knob a little more.

IceMaker*

The IceMaker is used exclusively for the production of ice cubes in household quantities.
Make sure that the following conditions are fulfilled

  • IceMaker is cleaned (see 8 Maintenance) .
  • IceMaker drawer is fully inserted.

Producing ice cubes
The production capacity depends on the freezer temperature
The lower the temperature, the more ice cubes can be produced in a certain period Once IceMaker is switched on for the first time, it can take up to
24 hours to produce the first ice cubes.
Activate the IceMaker (see 6.2 Operating logic) .
To make a large quantity of ice cubes: Activate the MaxIce (see 6.2 Operating logic) .
Distribute ice cubes evenly in the drawer to increase its capacity.
Close the drawer: The IceMaker starts making ice again.

Note
When a certain level is reached in the IceMaker drawer, it stops making ice cubes. The IceMaker does not fill the drawer to the very top.
