Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a market leader and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics, unveiled today at IFA 2012 its smart oven and compact oven, two new innovations and enhancements to its expanding line-up of kitchen appliances. These new products inspire users to conveniently express their culinary creations but also conserve energy and save space in consumer’s kitchens.
“We are listening closely to our consumers’ evolving needs.” said Boo-Keun Yoon, President and Head of Consumer Electronics Division; Head of Digital Appliances Business, Samsung Electronics. “And with these insights in mind, we launch new kitchen appliances that offer more convenience, capacity, energy features and aesthetic beauty to consumers.”
These enhancements have been applied in the company’s latest smart ovens that help busy consumers stay ahead of kitchen tasks through sophisticated features such as Smart Sense Technology, a feature that detects and automatically implements the optimum cooking mode and time.
Similarly, Samsung’s latest compact oven portfolio is comprised of a wide range of standard and compact sizes. All ovens feature a seamless design and have been recognized as the largest capacity in the compact oven category with 50 liters of space, as well as the world’s first energy efficiency grade A -30%.
High-capacity, low energy usage
With Samsung’s new compact oven, consumers get the best of both worlds: a large capacity oven that can cook a large family meal, for instance, yet compact in size and energy efficient. In particular, both families and individuals will benefit from being able to prepare meals more efficiently with the large 50 liters of capacity, a size that is significantly more spacious than conventional compact ovens .
Additionally, the compact oven has been rated A-30%, marking it the first compact oven to receive such an energy efficiency rating. Whether cooking a meal for one or for a large party, consumers can be assured that using the compact oven will allow them to be environmentally friendly.
With a revolutionary slim design, control lighting and seamlessly integrated door handle and frame, the Samsung compact oven ensures that every chef is cooking in style. The compact oven come in five variations: oven, steam combi, microwave oven combi, steam, and microwave oven, offering a range of cooking options such as baking, roasting, grilling and steaming.
In addition, the compact oven comes equipped with a Dual Convection feature that cooks food more evenly, allowing consumers to prepare larger dishes while maintaining the optimal level of food humidity and temperature.
The new compact oven models will be available in Europe from October 2012.
Smart Oven with 45L Capacity
Samsung’s new counter-top smart oven boasts an amazing45-liter capacity that enables consumers to cook more versatile recipes. Consumers also have access to innovative features such as Smart Sense Technology and a humidity-based sensor, which cooks food evenly by automatically detecting the humidity in the oven’s cavity and adjusting to the food’s cooking process. This technology also ensures that the optimum cooking mode and timing is enabled for the best cooking performance. With a simple touch, users are also given the option to select one of eight Sensor Auto cooking programs and the oven will do the rest.
Additionally, Samsung’s smart oven features a ceramic square tray that maximizes the internal space of the oven to accommodate large dishes and multi-level cooking, especially useful for large roasts and convection mode.
Also, the revolutionary “Crusty Plate” works in conjunction with the oven’s grill mode to produce deliciously grilled or perfectly crispy pizzas, quiches or pastries.
In addition to a ceramic square tray, the smart oven’s interior is ceramic enamel, a durable material with high scratch- and rust-resistancy that makes it more than seven times scratch-resistant than any other microwave interior.
Samsung is the only manufacturer that uses high quality ceramic enamel, which is traditionally found in standard ovens or ranges. The ceramic enamel interior is also easy to clean and sanitary. In fact, the device’s antibacterial activity was tested and certified by the Hohenstein Institute in Germany.
The oven’s combination of ceramic enamel and steam clean services make the product as easy to clean as it is to use. The stylish stainless steel and glass design will complete the look of consumers’ kitchen and enhance the functionality of any worktop.
Samsung’s smart oven will be available in Europe in September 2012.
