Samsung Introduces an Entirely New Category in Refrigeration as Part of Kitchen Appliance Line-up at CES 2016

Connectivity, capacity and clever thinking ensure Samsung continues to lead the way for meaningful innovation in the kitchen 

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 12, 2015 /CNW/ - Samsung Electronics Canada, a global leader in home appliance innovations, introduced a brand new refrigeration category to the market that cements the refrigerator's position as the centre of the kitchen. With practical innovations infused throughout, Samsung's latest kitchen appliances were unveiled alongside its other home appliance introductions at CES 2016 from January 6 to 9, 2016.

"Samsung has reinvigorated the home appliance space with fresh thinking and functionality to inspire Canadian families to get closer through innovation that offers efficiencies and delivers more connected time together in the home," said Warner Doell, Vice President, Home Appliances Sales and Marketing, Samsung Canada. "Our new and innovative Family Hub Refrigerator serves as the centerpiece of the kitchen, transforming the communal kitchen experience for Canadian families in ways that will re-define how they view and use their refrigerator."

Family Hub Refrigerator Makes Its Debut
The Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator is a sophisticated multi-tasker that reconnects families, organizes groceries and home tasks, and provides entertainment.

The Family Hub is just that – a hub of household connections, but with a thoroughly digital twist. All communications are housed and displayed on a 21.5 inch full HD LCD resolution screen located on the upper right exterior door. As the refrigerator's digital family command centre, the screen allows you to post, share and update calendars, pin photos, share treasured kids' works of art, and leave notes – all with the ease and convenience of your smartphone.

From more efficiently managing your groceries, to identifying foods you have or need, to tracking product expiration dates to cut down on waste, the Family Hub is your go-to resource to keep your kitchen fully stocked. In a revolutionary advancement in refrigerator technology, three high quality cameras inside the fridge capture an image every time the door closes. You can then access those images anytime using your smartphone and take a peek inside your fridge. Even if you're at the store and forget to check on what you need for dinner that night, you can easily pull up the Samsung Smart Home app and have a look right into your Family Hub fridge.

With the kitchen serving as the centre of the home and a common gathering spot, the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator is ideally suited to entertain friends and family. It offers options for music streaming to play through its built-in speaker or connect to your Bluetooth wireless speakers, like Samsung's own Radiant 360 line, to enjoy music throughout the home. You can even enjoy your favourite television programs right on the Family Hub screen using Screen mirroring with your Samsung Smart TV, a huge benefit if you have to prepare food for the hockey game and don't want to miss any important play.

The Family Hub is as impressively designed on the inside as it is on the outside. From the Samsung-exclusive FlexZone™ that transforms from fridge to freezer to meet your food storage needs, to keeping food fresher, longer* with its Triple and Metal Cooling system, to its flexibility and energy-saving features, this refrigerator places a premium on superior performance and unmatched innovation and design.

The Family Hub Refrigerator (model RF28K95800SR) will be available in Canada in Full Depth in Summer 2016.

Convenience and Connectivity in the Kitchen
Samsung's Wi-Fi Slide-in Range with Soft Close Dual Door™ combines advanced technology with the ultimate in flexible functionality to make meal preparation easier and more enjoyable for home cooks.

This range also features Samsung's award-winning Flex Duo™ technology with Soft Close Dual Door which provides ultimate cooking flexibility in oven configurations. Consumers can easily switch between one of the industry's largest single oven compartments at 5.8 cu. ft. or separate into two-compartments (2.4 cu. ft. on top and 3.3 cu. ft. on bottom) by simply inserting or removing a simple but inventive Smart Divider. Maximizing the efficiency of Flex Duo™ even more is the Soft Close Dual Door, which is engineered with a hinge in the middle to open just the top compartment or both and can close softly and quietly to prevent door slams.

Easy-grip metallic knobs that are illuminated with ice blue LED lights make it easy to see from across the room that a burner is on – a simple yet meaningful innovation that makes consumers' lives simpler and more efficient.

Samsung's Wi-Fi Slide-in Range with Soft Close Dual Door™ will be available in Canada in Spring 2016 in both electric and gas versions.

Additionally, Samsung will showcase a full line of other kitchen innovations at CES 2016, including:

  • Samsung Chef Collection Slide-in Dual Fuel Range: This versatile range serves up what home cooks need by merging a gas cooktop and an electric oven into one unit ideal for cooking precision and control, while for the first time incorporating Samsung's Flex Duo™ technology.
  • Samsung 4-Door Flex Food Showcase Refrigerator: The convenient external Food Showcase door opens to a shallow case that provides easy access to frequently used items, while an InnerCase compartment in the same space is used for longer-term storage for larger, fresh food items. Samsung's exclusive FlexZone™, located in the bottom right quadrant, easily transforms from fridge to freezer by selecting from four customizable temperature settings. And its Triple Cooling System keeps food fresh, longer* by maintaining even humidity levels throughout the fridge and providing precise temperature calibration.
