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 a 15 minute time period. 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.

This function can only be activated when the compartment is already set to ‘Freezer’ setting.

To use the Bottle Chill function:
  1. Press and hold the LOCK  button for 3 seconds to unlock the control panel.
  2. Press the FUNCTION SELECT  button to select BOTTLE CHILL. The Bottle Chill timer will start automatically.
  3. Place your beverage into the compartment.
  4. To turn Bottle Chill off at any time, press the FUNCTION SELECT  button three times until no Freezer function lights are displayed.

The Temperature adjustment light will scroll back and forth over the 15 minute period to remind you that Bottle Chill is active.

Fast Freeze

The Fast Freeze function has been designed to assist in preserving fresh food quality by freezing food at a faster rate than the normal freezer setting. Activating Fast Freeze drops the freezer temperature down to its coldest temperature for a 24 hour time period. You may wish to use this when freezing meat or when you are making frozen desserts. It is also good to use when arriving home from the supermarket and adding fresh food into the freezer.

This function can only be activated when the compartment is already set to ‘Freezer’ setting.

To use the Fast Freeze function:
  1. Press and hold the LOCK  button for 3 seconds to unlock the control panel.
  2. Press the FUNCTION SELECT  button to select FAST FREEZE. Fast Freeze will start automatically.
  3. Place your fresh food to be frozen into the compartment.
  4. Fast Freeze will automatically switch off after 24 hours and return to Freezer mode.
    To turn Fast Freeze off at any time, press the FUNCTION SELECT  button twice until no Freezer function lights are displayed.

The Temperature adjustment light will scroll back and forth over the 24 hour period to remind you that Fast Freeze is active.

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

Deep Freeze

The key to long term frozen storage is low temperature. The lower the temperature, the longer frozen food will retain vital flavor and quality.

The reduced temperature of Deep Freeze will keep frozen food at its best for longer periods. Deep Freeze sets the compartment at -13°F / -25°C.

Ensure that food is placed in thick freezer proof packaging.

This function can only be activated when the compartment is already set to ‘Freezer’ mode. 

To use the Deep Freeze function:
  1. Press and hold the LOCK  button for 3 seconds to unlock the control panel.

  2. Press the FUNCTION SELECT  button to select DEEP FREEZE.
    To turn Deep Freeze off at any time, press the FUNCTION SELECT  button once until no Freezer function lights are displayed.

  • Deep Freeze function has no additional temperature adjustment.
  • While Deep Freeze is active no lights will be displayed on the temperature adjustment area.
