Samsung Electronics unveiled new innovations and extensions to its expanding line-up of smart kitchen appliances at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) from Jan. 10-13.


From new enhancements for its LCD Refrigerator with apps, to an energy-efficient over-the-range oven that will perform quadruple duty for busy cooks, to a new version of the popular Flex Duo Oven, Samsung’s smart kitchen offerings will deliver more organization, efficiency and convenience than ever.




For LCD Refrigerator with apps, New Ways to Connect and Organize


Samsung is expanding the offerings on its LCD Refrigerators with apps by introducing two new much-requested options – Facebook and Grocery List – to the side-by-side (RSG309) and four-door French Door (RF4289) models.  Both will be featured on the refrigerators’ 8” Wi-Fi enabled LCD color touch screen. The Grocery List app will allow consumers to create their own highly personalized shopping lists at the touch of a button, while the Facebook app will provide instant access to consumers’ newsfeeds.




The refrigerators also feature food storage options to keep families organized, like the customizable counter-height FlexZone™ drawer that is easily accessible to children and includes four temperature setting options — Meat and Fish (29°F), Cold Drinks (33°F), Deli/Snacks (37°F) and Wine/Party Dishes (42°F). They also help keep produce fresher, long with the Twin Cooling Plus® System which uses separate cooling systems in the refrigerator and freezer to regulate temperature and humidity.



Eco-efficient Microwave Cooking




Samsung’s new Over The Range (OTR) Microwave Oven (SMH2117S) is a convection oven, toaster oven, microwave and range hood all in one. A 2012 CES Innovations Award winner in the eco-design category, the large 2.1 cu. ft. capacity OTR features an LED cooktop light that reduces the time, effort and cost of a replacement while still offering top-of-the-line illumination on the cooking surface below, as well as an Eco Mode feature that reduces phantom power.  When not in use, the range will help consumers save time and money.


In addition, the OTR features a ceramic enamel interior that’s easy to clean and keep the level of sanitary cooking that consumers want and deserve. Only Samsung uses this kind of high quality ceramic enamel that is traditionally found in a standard oven or range.



Flexible Cooking to Prepare any Dish


In 2012, Samsung will enable even more consumers to enjoy the flexibility and convenience of the Flex Duo Oven with an induction cook top (NE599N1). Families still will benefit from being able to prepare meals more efficiently with the full large 5.9 inch cu. ft. cavity, or using one or both of the two smaller chambers (2.6 cu ft. and 3.1 cu ft.), when divided with the Smart Divider. The chambers can be used separately or together; when used together, dinner and dessert cook simultaneously at two different temperatures with no mixing of aromas or tastes. When not in use, the oven divider conveniently stores in a discreet space above the bottom drawer. The new model will be available in summer 2012.
