Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator

You know life just got better when you can organize your kitchen better and thereby work more efficiently saving on time, energy and lessening exasperation over spoiled food, high electricity consumption and having to deal with disorganization.

The new Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator gives you all that and more. Designed to provide optimum use of space to make kitchen life more organized, looking for something in the refrigerator has never been as easy as it was before. To parents with children who like to rummage through the typical refrigerator in search for an apple to munch on or a pizza to heat for snacks, you know what this means, right? Some food containers are opened and not closed properly, some even spill (the horrors!) and some are switched in location.

Even chef couple and Samsung Digital Appliances ambassadors, Rolando and Jackie Laudico note that preparing dishes both at home and their newly-renovated restaurant, Guevarra’s, there is a difference on how an organized refrigerator makes work easier and smooth flowing.

When preparing dishes at our restaurant, it’s always important to have our ingredients readily available. With the high kitchen traffic, we can’t afford to waste time looking for ingredients as the viands should always be readily available for our customers.” said Chef Jac “While at home, we always aim to prepare healthy yet delicious meals for our children so it’s important for us to have a refrigerator that keeps healthy produce like vegetables fresh so we won’t have to constantly replace them.”

Samsung Digital Appliances therefore created a refrigerator that helps families keep their food organized and fresh but also looks good in the kitchen.

Be more organized

The Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator features two layers that optimize the use of space and provide clearly defined zones for frequently used food. It has three functional zones

  • The Cooking Zone stores frequently used items, such as eggs, cheese and sauce bottles;
  • The Family Zone stores items for the entire family like beverages and fruit;
  • The Kids Zone stores children’s snacks and is located at the lower part of the Showcase considering the height of children.

Customized storage space for everyone? Cool!

Located deeper within the refrigerator, behind the outer Showcase is the perfect place to preserve easily perishable items like vegetables, fruits and meats.

 

More Space.

The Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator has more space, to provide the family’s differing food preferences. The daily food items and ingredients like snacks, beverages, sauces are put in areas and at heights to determine optimal locations.

Ice Master

There is an Ice Master built into the door, to provide extra space by freeing two additional shelves in the freezer. Yes, with conventional freezers, if your ice cube trays do not have covers, sometimes these get contaminated with other food items. 

The Ice and Water Dispenser feature gives you chilled filtered water at just a touch of a button.

Slide and Fold Shelf

The Slide & Fold shelf adds extra flexibility to storage because it can easily be removed, folded up or raised and lowered to fit items you might want to put in. There is really no wasted space.

Save time

With the Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator, all frequently used items have a designated, easily accessible space.

Saving time in food preparation is very important, especially for moms like me who doesn’t need to go through the different zones in the refrigerator in search for just one item.

Keep food fresher for longer

Food also stays fresher for longer in the Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator. Its unique features retain cool air within the refrigerator even if the Showcase door is frequently opened, and ensure an even and constant temperature from top to bottom, front to back. This assures customers that food stays fresh, no matter where it is stored or how often the door is opened.

For sure, the Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator is a premium home appliance. Equipped with a Digital Inverter Technology, this refrigerator provides energy savings efficiency and guarantees durability.

There is a 10 year warranty on the compressor.

Truly, one of the most important items you can have in your kitchen, both at home and, in our case, at work is a refrigerator that keeps your environment organized.” said Chef Lau “Which is why we are happy to have the Samsung Food ShowCase to make our kitchen life easier.”

The Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator (with Ice and Water Dispenser) is priced at Php 139,900 and Php 129,900 for the basic model.

On Selfies

Are you fond of taking selfies? If you are living under a rock for the past year or so and ask what on earth is a selfie, this is what a selfie means:

Selfie means “taking a photo of oneself.” To take your own picture, you either extend your hand to make sure your face is within the frame of the front-facing camera or you stand before a mirror and take a shot of your reflection.Taken from this article I wrote.

I’m sure all of us have taken selfie photos at one time or another and with one that we publish online or have brochure printing companies print, there are probably ten more we have in our files. How do I know?

I just know, lol.
