James Politeski, senior vice president of home appliance sales and marketing, Samsung Electronics America, said the app-enabled fridge lets users access the weather and recipes while getting kids ready for school or preparing dinner.

The RSG309 side-by-side and RF4289 four-door French Door model refrigerators offer an industry-first, Wi-Fi enabled 8-inch LCD screen integrated directly above the water and ice dispenser on the front of the appliance to provide access to a series of kitchen-relevant applications. Apps allow users to reach recipe collections, check the weather, leave notes, review the family calendar, check the headlines on AP news, or play a photo slide show.
The dividable range oven lets users rethink meal preparation, he added. "They can now simultaneously bake cookies and cook salmon in the same appliance," said Politeski.
