Pantry mode

The Pantry mode finally provides a solution for all those foods that you didn’t previously know what to do with, and have always resorted to storing on the bench or in the cupboard.

The Pantry mode finally provides a solution for all those foods that you didn’t previously know what to do with, and have always resorted to storing on the bench or in the cupboard.

The Pantry mode is designed specifically for foods that require a 'cool, dark place' for storage.

Sensitive food

There are a wide variety of foods that often perish quickly if stored at room temperature but can be damaged by normal refrigerator temperatures, eg. bananas and tomatoes.

The Pantry mode provides a stable storage environment at 54°F / 12°C, making it an ideal environment for sensitive food items. Pantry mode also allows tropical fruits, eg. avocados, melons and pineapples, to ripen slowly under controlled conditions, without the risk of damage from low temperatures.

A cool cupboard

Freshly baked items such as cakes and breads can quickly turn mouldy when placed in the cupboard but become hard and stale when placed in a conventional refrigerator. The Pantry mode provides ideal storage for these items so that they remain fresher for longer. It is also a great place to store dried goods, cereals and other items that can become a target for mould and insects when stored at room temperature.

Important!

The Pantry mode is not suitable for highly perishable fresh dairy and meat items, or pre-cooked foods.

To use Pantry mode:
  1. Press and hold the LOCK  button for 3 seconds to unlock the control panel.
  2. Press the MODE SELECT  button.
  3. Scroll to PANTRY  mode.
  4. The Pantry 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).
