More humidity or less- it all depends on what suits best! DrySafes and HydroSafes in Liebherr’s BioFresh appliances give you the optimum storage environments for different types of food.
Around 40% of food in the United States goes to waste. Remember the last time you shopped and stocked up on fruit, vegetables, fish or meat? After a few days in the fridge these items aren’t appetizing any more. Most likely, your food lost its freshness because it was stored in an unsuitable environment. When stored under the right conditions, fresh food can be kept and enjoyed for much longer. It will retain vitamins, minerals and trace elements AND its great taste!
Liebherr BioFresh DrySafes and HydroSafes enable you to create these optimum storage environments. Precise electronics keep the temperature always slightly above 32°F (0°C). Your food won’t freeze, but it will keep fresher up to 3 times longer compared to a standard refrigerator compartment.
BioFresh safes offer a ‘custom-made freshness environment’ for food. Let’s find out how
Low humidity levels combined with a low temperature makes the DrySafe setting is perfect for storing fish, meat and dairy products. All foods stored in DrySafes should be in airtight packaging to prevent them fron drying out.
The HydroSafe setting is ideal for storing fruit and vegetables. The slide control enables you to regulate humidity. The more foods you store in your BioFresh HydroSafe, the more should the slide control be opened. This will allow moisture to circulate.
The droplet icons on the slide control help you find the right humidity level. One droplet indicates low humidity (DrySafe), multiple droplets higher humidity (High Humidty). We’ve also printed icons directly on the drawer to give you guidance which setting is suitable for which food items.
Remove all outer packaging from foods stored in HydroSafes. This will allow air to circulate around it properly. You’ve probably noticed salad greens ‘sweating’ in their plastic bag when stored in the crisper. These foods need to breathe.
If the drawer has no slide control, it will only act as a DrySafe.
