Samsung RT7000 Refrigerator Reduces Food Waste

6 November 2016 – Every day Malaysia disposes of 3,000 tonnes of preventable food waste, the largest contributor of solid waste and largest source of harmful greenhouse gases in the country. This amount makes up between 31 and 45 per cent of an average of 36,000 tonnes of garbage generated annually. Beyond polluting our one and only Mother Earth, imagine the millions of hungry people we could have fed with that mountainous volume of food.

Food waste often results from buying too much through unplanned shopping, poor storage and not eating short shelf life items quickly enough. In many cases, the problem stems from the out-of-sight, out-of-mind situation. Surveys show that many consumers lose track of what food they have in their refrigerators, as it often gets lost in the disorganization.

This problem is faced by people around the world and, while this staggering statistic is not going to change dramatically anytime soon, the problem is not being ignored. All over the globe, consumers are grappling every day with the dilemma, coming up with novel solutions like wrapping food in newspapers inside their refrigerator, or using special envelopes to ensure freshness.

 

Samsung RT7000 Refrigerator

Now there is no need for that as the Samsung RT7000 refrigerator was designed for this in mind, to help consumers keep their food fresher for longer, and to make sure they always know what’s inside. With Twin Cooling Plus technology, it uses two separate evaporators to ensure optimal humidity levels in both the fridge and the freezer. This helps maintain food moisture and keeps the cooling even.

An independent food freshness testing by Intertek shows that with 70% humidity levels, foods can stay fresh for twice as long. Some vegetable items, such lettuce and green beans saw marked differences in freshness after just a few days.

The Samsung RT7000 additionally uses Samsung’s Digital Inverter Technology. It turns on the cooling system to cool the fridge only when needed, rather than being on all the time, so as not to overcool and dry out foodstuffs. Overcooling can also be mitigated by features such as Power Cool and Power Freeze, which function to get foods to their optimal temperatures as quickly as possible.

Its Smart Conversion technology gives consumers a 5-in-1 refrigerator so they can customize according to food storage needs. The five options (Regular, Energy Saving, Vacation, Fridge Max, Mini Fridge) are practical and give consumers full control over their refrigerator. It is a kitchen appliance that can adapt to their food – not the other way around.

[adrotate banner=”4″]

The design and size of the Samsung RT7000 are also key factors that help keep foods fresher for longer. The overall size of the unit is roughly 30 litres larger than average refrigerators, giving more room for items like the Multiple Storage Baskets for separating specific foods. Keeping food separate enables varying temperature levels, which in turn enables the user to keep foods as precisely the temperature they need to stay fresh.

Food separation and easier organization of foods is also aided by the Anti Bacteria Protector. Studies have shown that bacteria can grow if a refrigerator is running at incorrect temperatures; and this can lead to bad tastes and smells, which can in turn affect other foods. This is particularly so if raw and cooked foods are kept together. Anti-Bacteria Protector cuts down on the potential for cross contamination with a fan and deodorizing filter that eliminates 99% of all bacterial activity and 93% of food smells.

The Samsung RT7000 addresses consumers’ pain points on fast-drying produce, odour and bacteria, as well as inflexible storage methods that can help reduce food wastage. While we have smart kitchen appliances that assist us in household management, the onus still lies in us to consciously and actively ensure that we play our part in shopping and throwing away our food responsibly.

Great Samsung Raya Deals 2016

Kuala Lumpur, 27 June 2016 – Raya, the season where friends and family get together and have a great time is just around the corner. To prep up their home for the season, Malaysians are all excited spring cleaning and refurnishing their homes in time for the festivities.

To make preparations more enjoyable and efficient, Samsung Malaysia Electronics is offering their Great Samsung Raya Deals 2016 line-up of smart digital home appliances. From kitchen appliances such as Samsung’s Refrigerator with Twin Cooling Plus technology and HotBlast Smart Oven, to home appliances such as the Triangle Room Air-conditioners (RAC) and Addwash Front Load Washers, Hari Raya open house preparations this year just got a whole lot easier!

 

Worry-free Laundry for Your New Baju Raya

To avoid the rush right before Raya, wash your Raya outfits ahead of time. Raya outfits are typically delicate pieces that include embroidery or elaborate beading so extra care needs to be observed when washing them. Hand-washing is best for delicate fabrics and intricate detailing but if you are pressed for time, then Samsung’s new AddWash Front Load Washer can take the load off your hands.

Programmed with gentle care settings to carefully wash any silk or satin ensembles, the AddWash washing machine uses its EcoBubble technology to generate powerful bubbles to remove dirt up to 40% faster than conventional dissolved detergents. The best part is – it only uses cold water so you can be sure of an optimum wash while maintaining the state of your Baju Raya and save up to 70% of energy, without the need to heat the water. Do remember to place them into a mesh bag to prevent the fragile stitching from tearing or being snagged on in the washing machine.

For those whose curtains or cushion covers are up for washing, the AddWash washing machine is just the right appliance to get the job done. Simply switch to Bubble Soak mode and the unique ecobubbles will begin its intensive stain removal. The AddWash washing machine’s huge capacity and SuperSpeed feature also lets you wash piles of curtains and cushion covers in a single load under an hour – meaning you can enjoy less time washing and more time prepping the house for visitors!

 

Fresh Raya Food for the Season

To serve the best Raya dishes on the block, the ingredients used have to be of the freshest quality and Samsung’s Refrigerator with Twin Cooling Plus technology ensures exactly that, even if the Raya grocery shopping was done weeks before the open house. The refrigerator comes with an independent twin cooling system that ensures a constant optimum humidity and temperature to keep vegetables and fruits fresh for a longer period. This new technology also prevents the cross-flow of odours, so your Rendang can maintain their savoury aroma, unhindered by any frozen seafood kept in the freezer.

This refrigerator is also available in multiple capacities, so regardless of the occasion, be it a small family dinner or an open house, there is a Samsung refrigerator suitable for your needs. Samsung refrigerators are built to be a storage haven; hence, each variation is incorporated with the Big Guard feature where door compartments are built to hold larger items.

If even more refrigerator space is required, the Samsung Refrigerators with Twin Cooling Plus technology has a built in smart conversion feature, so even the freezer compartment can be set to the refrigerator mode so it can also hold your fresh ingredients!

Delicious Raya Cooking for Everyone

With so many goodies to prepare for the Raya open house, the cook may find themselves pressed for time. Traditional Malay cuisine is full of flavour and in the rush to push them out to guests; we may find them lacking that signature spark. Luckily Samsung HotBlast Smart Oven assures that your Ayam Percik stays moist and flavoursome!

The HotBlast Smart Oven features the unique PowerGrill Duo that makes cooking 47% quicker than a traditional convection oven. It also comes equipped with extra wide dual heaters that radiate more powerful and consistent heat, allowing for quicker and more even grilling. So your Ayam Percik and Ikan Bakar will maintain its delicious flavour – staying crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

Samsung’s Refrigerator with Twin Cooling Plus and HotBlast Smart Oven are the perfect kitchen appliances to ensure that the kitchen runs smoothly. Now you can prepare a feast for your guests this Raya without breaking a sweat!

 

Keeping You and Your Family Cool This Raya Season

A good Raya open house is one where guests can enjoy mouth-watering cuisine in a cool and comfortable environment. Nothing cools the room down more than Samsung’s line of Triangle Room Air-conditioners (RAC), letting everyone breeze through this year’s celebration. Samsung’s Triangle RAC features a unique and compact triangle body design and packed with new and innovative features for an extra cooling experience.

The body allows for an increased air intake and airflow, therefore producing faster and stronger winds with a more even air distribution. Your Raya guests need not wait long before they start to feel the room cool down as the Samsung Triangle RAC cools an area 43% faster than conventional RACs.

With people walking in and out, the constant usage of air-conditioners can drive up electricity bills. In response to this, Samsung developed the perfect solution and incorporated its Digital Inverter technology that automatically adjusts to the room’s temperature to fit the capacity. So no matter how many visitors there are this Raya, Samsung ensures that everyone is comfortable!

Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator Revealed

Earlier this month, we attended the Samsung Forum 2016, where we saw the latest and greatest Samsung kitchen appliances – all slated for sale this year. Their proudest example of culinary technology this year is the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator.

As the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator is not slated for launch until Q2 2016 (Spring 2016 in the US), this is a sneak preview. Check out the video we took of a working example during the recent Samsung Forum 2016!

 

Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator Quick Look

The Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator is designed to be the centrepiece or hub of your kitchen. It is not just a refrigerator, it is part of the Internet. It is what we call an Internet of Things (IoT) device. All of its IoT (Internet of Things) capabilities are hidden behind the 21.5″ full HD LCD display on its upper right door.

The 21.5″ display is where the magic takes place. It allows you to manage your groceries, pin photos, leave notes as well as post, share and update your family’s activity calendar. This is where your family can coordinate your lives around.

[adrotate banner=”4″]It even comes with three built-in cameras that captures a picture every time you close the door. Using a smartphone, you can remotely access those pictures to determine what you currently have in the Family Hub Refrigerator. This is very useful if you’re at the store and can’t remember if you have enough eggs. Just launch the Samsung Smart Home app and have a look!

With the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator, you don’t even have to leave home to shop for groceries. You can even place an order with an online grocery shopping partner and pay for it with a Samsung credit card partner using the built-in display. How’s that for convenience?

Of course, if you still prefer to shop at your grocery store, you can use the built-in shopping list feature to manage your groceries. Heck, you can even store your recipes right there!

 

Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator Availability

The Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator is slated to be available in the United States in the spring of 2016. Global availability will vary from country to country, but look out for it in Q2 2016 onwards. In the US, it will be available in two sizes – Counter Depth and Full Depth, with two colour options – Stainless and Black Stainless
