Special Functions

These functions can only be activated when the CoolDrawer™ is set to ‘freezer’ setting.

Screen Shot 2017-12-27 at 9.18.41 AM.png Bottle Chill

This function allows you to rapidly chill your beverages in the freezer without the worry of forgetting about them. Activating ‘bottle chill’ drops the freezer down to its coldest setting for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, an alarm will sound to remind you to remove your beverage. The user alarm will continue to sound until the drawer is opened and the display panel is unlocked. The ‘bottle chill’ light will also flash.

Remember to remove your beverage when the alarm sounds, to ensure the liquid does not freeze.

food into the freezer. For best results, we recommend that you activate this function approximately 2 hours before it is required. Alternatively, activate ‘fast freeze’ when placing food into the freezer.
