Congratulations! You’ve purchased a Liebherr BioFresh refrigerator. You can now be confident that your fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, seafood and dairy can last significantly longer than a conventional refrigerator crisper. This means less trips to the grocery store, as well as less spoilage due to the foods extended shelf life, allowing for more time for produce to be consumed.
Owning a Liebherr refrigerator featuring the BioFresh technology is only the beginning, knowing how to use the space to optimise the life of your stored foods is the next step. Whilst the instruction manual is informative, we thought we’d summarise how best to use the BioFresh drawers, suggest storage recommendations and share how the BioFresh storage can benefit both you and your food.
Liebherr’s BioFresh, BioFreshPlus & Humidity Control
Liebherr BioFresh drawers have a temperature of just above 0°C. BioFreshPlus drawers have the flexibility of adjusting the temperature from -2C°, 0C° to 6°C (ideal for more sensitive fruits, fish and seafoods). Keeping the temperature accurate, combined with a high or low humidity, depending on the food type, is the reason why food can remain fresher longer than traditional fridges.
Ensuring the correct humidity is reached is important in maintaining longer freshness. DrySafe (low humidity) is best for dry or wrapped foods like dairy, meat, fish and cold meats. A dry environment can be achieved by sliding the humidity control to the left. HydroSafe (high humidity) is best for unwrapped foods with high moisture content such as many fruits and vegetables. A humid environment can be achieved by sliding the humidity control to the right.
The Liebherr BioFresh App
Some food types are best not stored in a BioFresh compartment as they are sensitive to cold such as hard cheeses, potatoes, pineapple, avocado, pumpkin, zucchini, citrus fruits, green beans, cucumbers and eggplant. If your appliance offers BioFreshPlus these food types can be stored at 6°C or alternatively placed in another drawer in the refrigerator (which is usually set at 4°C).
So, with an abundance of fruit, vegetables, fish, seafood, meat and dairy varieties available how do you know what to store where, the optimum humidity and the best temperature? To make things a little easier, Liebherr have a free BioFresh App available for download via your SmartPhone or Android App store.
With seven categories (Fruit, Vegetables, Cheese, Dairy, Fish & Seafood, Meat & Sausages, Bakery) there are close to 150 food items listed offering the best storage advice (Fridge vs BioFresh vs BioFreshPlus), the temperature (where applicable for BioFreshPlus) and the humidity. It even tells you what vitamins and minerals the foods contain. Search Liebherr BioFresh in the App store.
