Fruit and Vegetable Bins with Humidity Control Lids
- Your refrigerator has two fruit and vegetable bins and one slim bin. These bins are fitted with humidity control lids and settings for either fruit or vegetable storage.
- The unique humidity control lid functions to seal the bins and provide a humid microclimate to extend the storage times of fruit and vegetables.
- During times of high humidity the lid also functions to prevent condensation from dripping onto the fruit and vegetable by retaining this moisture in the lid’s specially designed grooves.
Fruit and Vegetable Bins with Humidity Slide
- All fruit and vegetable bins have an adjustable humidity slide which enables you to choose a fruit or vegetable setting depending on your storage needs.
- If there is too much water in the bins (due to high humidity), the control can be adjusted towards the setting with fewer drips (fruit setting, ) and/or the water can be wiped dry when required.
- Remember a small amount of water in the bins is beneficial for fruit and vegetable storage.
- When storing vegetables; which are ethylene-sensitive produce such as lettuce, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, carrots. We recommend using the vegetable setting, .
- When storing fruits which are generally high ethylene producers; such as citrus fruits, stone fruits and some tropical fruits, we recommend using the fruit setting, .
- When storing a combination of fruit and vegetables, we recommend adjusting the humidity slide to the center.
- Ideally store whole fruits and vegetables without external packaging, if possible, and in separate bins. Separating fruit and vegetables will prevent ethylene-sensitive produce from ripening too quickly, and help extend their storage life.

The slim bin provides the ideal environment for long vegetables which may not fit in the fruit and vegetable bins. Alternatively the bin can conveniently be used for deli items, beverages or for defrosting foods.
Single Bottle Holders
- The bottle holders can be used to store a variety of bottles.
- To position the bottle holder in your refrigerator, simply place the holder along the length of any shelf.
- If you are not using all or some of the bottle holders, the unused bottle holders can be stacked up on top of one another so they do not take up unnecessary shelf space.
- Bottles are best stored with the neck of the beverage facing the front of the refrigerator.
- Additional bottle holders can be purchased by calling your Fisher & Paykel Customer Care Center, or online at www.fisherpaykel.com or www.dcsappliances.com.
Cantilever Glass Shelves – Half Width and Full Width
- The cantilever glass shelves have been designed with strength and versatility in mind.
- Half-width and full-width shelves can be removed by firmly grasping the front of the shelf with two hands, tilting the front of the shelf upwards to dislodge the shelf hooks from the back support lugs, then pulling towards you. They can then be positioned at heights to suit your storage requirements.
- The half-width shelves can be positioned side by side, best when storing large items such as platters.
- Maximize the storage space when storing items of varying heights by positioning the half-width shelves at different levels.
- The top shelves are dairy compartments, designed to store butter and cheeses.
- The middle shelves are designed for general items, condiments and drinks.
- The bottom aluminum extrusion shelf is designed to store large bottles or those you require frequent access to. This shelf is fitted with a moveable and removable divider for better organization and bottle stability.
- Clear windows give ultimate visibility to what is being stored in the door shelves.
