Samsung’s line of products – including a kitchen range that finally makes induction heat a practical addition to any kitchen and a counter-depth refrigerator which makes breakthrough performance and design widely accessible – are on display at the 2015 International CES from Jan. 6-9, 2015.
“Consumers are more passionate about their homes than ever before. And that’s particularly true in the kitchen, where appliances are not just tools for meal preparation, but outlets to explore their culinary creativity and make a design statement,” said John Herrington, Senior Vice President, General Manager of Home Appliances, Samsung Electronics America.
New Ways of Connecting with Samsung Chef Collection
In 2013, Samsung launched Club des Chefs, a first-of-its-kind global culinary initiative that brought together world class chefs to collaborate with Samsung on the development of next-generation products. The result was the Samsung Chef Collection, a suite of beautifully designed professional chef-level appliances that has re-defined performance and design in the kitchen.
In addition, Samsung recently launched the Samsung Culinary Class at FERRANDI, the leading professional culinary school in Paris, France. People are now able to work side-by-side with some of the most accomplished professional chefs in the world and see first-hand how chef insights are applied to next-generation Samsung products. FERRANDI is serving as a pilot program for expansion to consumer engagements throughout the world.
Precision in Induction
Induction heating has become an increasingly popular option around the globe and while it has a superior ability to effectively transfer heat from the cooktop to cookware, it lacks the visual cues signalling the level of heat. The Samsung Chef Collection Slide-In Induction Range with Virtual Flame Technology™ not only delivers the full benefits of induction cooking, but takes it a step further.
A CES Innovation Awards honouree, the induction range features LED lighting embedded beneath a glass cooktop to cast a reassuring flame-like glow onto pots and pans when in use. The intensity of the virtual flame increases as you turn up the power, with nine levels of heat ranging from simmer to boil.
On top of the power and precision of a 4-burner induction cooktop, the Samsung Chef Collection Slide-In Induction Range includes award-winning features. Wrapped in a sleek stainless exterior with thoughtfully-designed controls, the range is ready to slide into any home kitchen décor to create a seamless and professional look. The Samsung Chef Collection Slide-In Induction Range is available now.
Breakthrough Refrigerator Performance and Design in a Counter Depth Model
Since its introduction last year, the T9000 Refrigerator has quickly joined a long line of innovative Samsung refrigerators which have transformed food storage in the kitchen. Its perfectly calibrated balance of technology, performance and design has catapulted the T9000 to the top of the category.
The new counter depth version of the T9000 makes it accessible to a much larger segment of the consumer market. Its slim design easily fits into standard kitchen cabinets, so it delivers a more harmonised look and feel for today’s modern kitchens. The 23 cu. ft. refrigerator features Triple Cooling System technology, which creates three separate airflows in the refrigerator and freezer, enabling optimal humidity and individual temperature control per each compartment for outstanding freshness.
Triple Cooling also enables the T9000 to feature the Cool Select Plus, a fridge-in-freezer compartment located in the lower right part which can be converted from a refrigerator to a freezer and back again, and serves a multitude of needs. The Cool Select Plus features 4.43 cu. ft. of fresh-food storage and includes four customisable temperature settings: Fridge (41 F), Chilled (30 F), Soft Freeze (23 F), and Frozen (-9 to 1 F).
Additionally, the interior includes such features as slide in/flip up shelves and two crisper drawers. The counter depth T9000 will be available in Spring 2015.
New Options in Food Storage Innovation
With innovative and smart storage solutions, the Samsung Food Showcase refrigerator line-up – introduced last year – has quickly become a hit with busy families searching for ways to get a leg up on organisation in the kitchen. The exterior door ShowCase compartments, divided into three family-friendly zones, and interior InnerCase compartments, perfect for storing larger, fresh food items, have proven to be the ideal combination of intuitive functionality, convenience and design. Now Samsung is adding new counter depth side-by-side and entry level models to the already robust line, insuring a wide breadth of options for all kitchen configurations and price points.
All Food Showcase refrigerator models feature a Metal Cooling guard on the inside of the front door to capture cold air and maintain the optimal temperature within the fridge, so food stays fresh, even if the refrigerator door is opened frequently. The refrigerators also feature elegant metal doors that add a premium feel to the modern lifestyle of families.
The new Samsung Food ShowCase refrigerator models are rolling out now, in addition to the already available side-by-side, four-door and three-door French Door models.
