Samsung’s new range of French Door fridges unveiled at CES 2021 were designed with hygiene in mind, including an anti-bacterial handle and the relocation of ice and water dispensers inside the front door panel.
The Samsung refrigerators are the by-product of a COVID-safe society, after a year of being forced to wear masks, hand sanitise regularly and socially distance.
The four-door French fridges are built with anti-bacterial handles for an improved hygienic experience in the home.
But the most interesting design change is Samsung’s decision to move the ice and water dispensers inside the fridge on an internal shelf to reduce the risk of contamination.
However it does mean users will have to open the fridge regularly in order to access the dispensers, which could prove to be an issue.
This hasn’t impacted the amount of space inside the fridge and Samsung’s new French Door Fridge also includes innovative storage to keep food fresher for longer and precise temperature control in individual compartments.
“Now more than ever, our homes are our haven – a place where we live, learn, entertain and relax. The kitchen is arguably the heart of the home and Samsung believes that intuitive design and innovation is the key creating home appliances that can make a real difference in people’s lives,”said Andrew Wand, Head of Home Appliances, Samsung Australia.
“We’re excited to launch our new French Door Refrigerator range in Australia as they’re packed with new, smart technologies. New features include innovative storage designed to keep food fresher for longer; the beverage showcase that includes an internal water and ice dispenser with quick access to drinks for easy entertaining; and anti-bacterial handles for improved hygiene.
I’m confident these new refrigerators will help many Aussies have a happier and healthier experience at home.”
Samsung’s new French Door Refrigerator range will be available in Australia from next month with pricing yet to be confirmed.
