Have you ever seen a disappearing ref?

Interactive screens, a freezer that turns into a ref, a fridge that vanishes  into the kitchen cabinets; these are just a sampling of the many modern features of today’s kitchen appliances. Here are some of them—we’re amazed, too!

Freezer-into-ref


You’ve probably been in this dilemma, especially during house parties: you need extra space for that enormous leftover roast pork, and the only spot you’ve got is the freezer so you chuck it in there, only to have it frozen like rock the next day. The Samsung Smart Convertible Refrigerator can now transform your unused freezer space into a ref—at the press of a button. (And no worries, you can transform that spot back into a freezer once the party’s over!)

Bixby, your smart assistant



We all know about the Samsung Family Hub’s interactive smart assistant, Bixby, who will provide personalized information and food choices based in each family member’s preferences. The new Family Hub, launched this February 2018, works with the SmartThings ecosystem, which allows users to monitor their connected home using their Family Hub ref screen (it connects to your Samsung phone, too).

A “door-within-a-door”


We’re sure you are thinking: “Uhm, what is that extra door for?” That extra glass-front door beneath the metal-face door of the Whirlpool French Door-Within-A-Door Refrigerator is the “cold space” that keeps milk and other drinks extra-cold, much colder than the other items within the ref. Too fancy for you? This ref also has practical features such as the Infinity Slide Shelves that can accommodate bigger food items in the middle.

A “disappearing ref”


Yes, you read that right. Sub-Zero integrated refrigerators can be customized with special panels and pulls that enable the actual ref to blend in seamlessly into the kitchen cabinets (see above and below). This is something interior designers love, because they absolutely hate seeing refs sticking out like a sore thumb!

Retro ref

With curves like a 1950s Buick and with a wide selection of colors and patterns, a SMEG refrigerator has become the iconic designer-retro-pop-culture ref that homeowners want. “For SMEG, style is a distinct concept—it is the way a product communicates with its surroundings and enables users to interact with it,” explains Leah Marcos, vice president for retail sales.
