Chill mode

Chill mode

The Chill mode sets the compartment at a temperature that is ideal for the storage of highly perishable fresh meats, poultry and fish products. It is ideal to hold highly perishable food at a temperature as close to freezing as possible to retain their vital freshness.

This mode sets the compartment at 31°F / -0.5°C, just above the freezing temperature for meat. This reduces the amount of microbial activity and slows physical changes, ensuring that meat stays fresher for longer.

The quality of the perishable food that is placed in Chill mode will be critical to successful storage. Ensure that meat is fresh when purchased and stored.

The Chill mode can also be used for chilling alcoholic beverages.


This setting is not recommended for any other food or non-alcoholic drink items.

  4. The Chill mode icon will flash until the compartment is at a suitable\temperature for food to be added into the compartment (this will take between 1 – 6 hours).

 Research tells us that highly perishable food stored on Chill mode will last 2 – 3 times longer than when stored at normal fridge temperatures.
