Samsung Home Appliances launched several new major appliances today, day one of the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Among the new products are refrigerators with Wi-Fi enabled LCD screens, allowing users to access apps for the kitchen, and a new Flex Oven range that can be divided into two separate oven chambers. Samsung is also exhibiting its 5.0 High Capacity Front-Loading Washer (WF520).

Samsung Home Appliances now says it is America’s fastest growing brand of appliances.

The washer and Flex Oven range both took eco-design category honors in the CES 2011 Innovations Awards.

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 on Epicurious, check the weather on WeatherBug, leave notes, review the family Google 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.

Users can use the full 5.9-cu-ft cavity or divide it into two smaller chambers (2.6 cu ft. top and 3.1 cu ft. bottom), which can be used together or separately.
