Feb 15, 2013– Ridgefield, USA (Techreleased) – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced that it is bringing the premium taste of fresh, crisp sparkling water right to the kitchen with the Samsung RF31FMESBSR 36” Four-Door Refrigerator featuring the industry’s first-ever automatic sparkling water dispenser. Powered by SodaStream, the recognized leader in personalized carbonation technology, the integrated system delivers cold, filtered sparkling water from the same mechanism on the refrigerator door that produces still water and ice.
With the new Samsung Four-Door Refrigerator with sparkling water dispenser, getting the crisp delicious taste of sparkling water is as easy as pushing a button. Using the same control panel they would use to select between water or ice, consumers can select up to three levels of carbonation for their sparkling water, giving them just what they are looking for to quench their thirst. The sparkling water dispenser uses a standard SodaStream 60L CO2 cylinder that rests in a small, concealed area inside the left refrigerator door, which is easily accessible to change when empty.
With the addition of the sparkling water dispenser, consumers can save space in the refrigerator that was previously allocated toward bottled carbonated beverages and reduce bottle waste in the home overall. In addition, consumers will ultimately save money that was used to purchase carbonated beverages, all while enjoying the convenience of getting sparkling water at the touch of a button.
“The new Samsung Four Door Refrigerator with a sparkling water dispenser reflects Samsung’s strong commitment to offering home appliances that not only meet consumers’ needs, but anticipate them in ways they never thought possible,” said Kevin Dexter, senior vice president of home appliances sales and marketing, Samsung Electronics America. “By joining forces with SodaStream, we are able to offer our consumers something never before seen on a refrigerator and bring a new experience to the kitchen.”
“This collaboration brings home carbonation to the next level, and we are excited to partner with Samsung to help bring our revolutionary technology to consumers,” said Daniel Birnbaum, CEO of SodaStream. “This product is a key milestone in a vision that represents the future for enjoying fresh carbonated beverages at home, easily made at the touch of a button, and without the clutter and waste that is produced by the old pre-packaged beverage industry.”
The 30.5 cu. ft. Samsung Four-Door Refrigerator with the sparkling water dispenser joins a long list of product innovations from Samsung that are revolutionizing the refrigeration category and offering best-in-class features for today’s dynamic homes. These include convenient storage features like the kid-friendly counter-height FlexZone drawer with four temperature settings, and the proprietary Twin Cooling Plus® technology that keeps food fresher longer. This model also includes high efficiency LED lighting to illuminate virtually every corner2 and the Ice Master ice maker which produces up to 10 lbs. of ice per day. These features are complemented by Samsung’s premium design and elegant finish, making it not only functional but beautiful as well.
The Samsung RF31FMESBSR Four-Door Refrigerator with a sparkling water dispenser will be available in the U.S. in April 2013 for an MSRP of $3899.
