Samsung’s Chef Collection Kitchen aims to Elevate and Inspire the Home Chef

Whether you’re an avid chef, aspiring one or just make a mean mac & cheese from the box, the desire to get things done quicker and more efficiently in the kitchen and leave more time for living life is a universal desire. Samsung is making that dream a reality for every kind of cook with its new line of Chef Collection appliances featuring elegant design, smart technology and chef-inspired features.

On Tuesday, Katie Cheng, Vice President of Home Appliance Marketing for Samsung Electronics America, unveiled the Chef Collection line at Samsung 837 in New York City’s Meatpacking district to a captive audience.

Consumers spend about 60% of their waking hours at home in the kitchen, according to data from Samsung. “We share experiences with family and friends, we nourish our lives as well as ourselves, in the kitchen,” said Cheng, explaining this thinking was the foundation and inspiration for Samsung’s Chef Collection.

“When you spend so much time in the kitchen, appliances need to do more than just serve up cool features. They need to enhance, elevate and inspire.”

Sophisticated yet Simple Connected Kitchen

Whether your inner chef is planning a 5-course, 5-ingredient or 5-minute meal, the Chef Collection premium design and high-tech features simplify meal-prep and meal-execution while allowing consumers to multi-task as busy lives demand of us.

With 28 percent of homeowners now considering integration of smart technology very important when it comes to home renovation, according to a recent Houzz & Home Survey, it’s no wonder Samsung took the time and energy design the Chef Collection with features that allow consumers to connect to their appliances wherever they are.

All appliances in the line are Wi-Fi or Bluetooth enabled for connectivity and control via an app on your smartphone.

“Imagine accessing your refrigerator’s View Inside Cameras so you can see what you have on hand, even while you’re out shopping,” said Chris Thornton, Sr. Manager of Product Training at Samsung Electronics America.

The 4-Door Flex™ refrigerator also includes Flex Zone™, a compartment which can easily convert from fridge to freezer with four temperature settings so you can keep ice cream frozen but chill your special dessert on at another temperature.

Can’t find what you’re looking for in the fridge? The 4-Door Flex™ also features 3-sided frame LED lighting which illuminates every nook and cranny of your fridge.

Chef Collection cooktops and range hoods feature Virtual Flame technology on the induction cooktop which gives the visual look and feel of real flame. Bluetooth enabled hoods turn on automatically with the surface of the Chef Collection pro range and cooktop models, so preventing a smoke-filled kitchen during the making of a feast is no longer an afterthought. For the big holidays, Samsung’s exclusive Flex Duo™ Oven with smart divider allows consumers to convert the oven compartment into two separate independent convection ovens that cook multiple dishes at different temperatures at the same time.

“The kitchen is a room that you go to, to gather with friends and family and feel good, this is a room you go to, to re-charge,” said Candice Kumai, wellness expert, chef and author, while effortlessly demonstrating how to make her signature dark chocolate matcha cups in the Chef Collection kitchen. “Chef Collection strikes this perfect balance between tech and design that is so modern and is so ‘now.’”
