Incorporating its own cameras, Wi-Fi connection and tablet, the Samsung Family Hub RB38M7998S4/EU freestanding fridge freezer packs a mighty storage capacity into a tall, standard-width appliance. It's frost free, so you'll never have to defrost it, and operates at a discreet 39dB noise level. It even offers low running costs for its size, as evidenced by an A++ rating for energy efficiency.
3 built-in cameras allow you to see what’s inside the fridge via internet connectivity. When you're out shopping, you can use your phone to check what's left in the fridge and work out what you need to buy. There are also systems to help you keep track of your grocery's expiry dates, as well as monitor and re-order your food shopping.
The fridge's touch screen display also works like a kitchen blackboard, complete with a calendar and diary for you to add reminders to, or share notes with the rest of the family.
Just like a large tablet, you can watch TV or listen to the radio on while you're in the kitchen, or take advantage of a range of other apps that offer thousands of recipes and foodie ideas.
