Samsung Electronics is showcasing an expanded line of premium kitchen appliances at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which opens today in Las Vegas and runs through January 11.

Samsung is introducing new refrigerator and range form factors intended to provide ease of use, convenience, organization, and style.

The 32-cu-ft capacity T9000 Four-Door Refrigerator is designed with a new form factor to provide the most fresh food storage in its class. It has a 19.4-cu-ft capacity French Door refrigerator compartment on top and a 6.1-cu-ft compartment on the lower right side, for a total of 25.5 cubic feet of fresh food storage. The lower right compartment can be used as a freezer if desired. The lower left compartment is a 6.1-cu-ft freezer. Samsung said the lower right compartment might be used as a kid zone, as a prep zone for a special meal, as a centralized storage area for a household member with dietary restrictions, or to replace a separate beverage refrigerator.

The refrigerator is equipped with the company's Triple Cooling system, intended to provide commercial grade humidity levels in the fresh food compartments and makes use of using of two compressors, three evaporators and several sensors. The T9000 will be available at retail in late Spring 2013 at a suggested retail price of $3,999.

A T9000 LCD model is also on display at CES. The LCD screen on the fridge uses apps to help families stay organized and connected in the kitchen. The Evernote app allows users to share photos, videos, and recipes with family and friends.

Samsung is also showing the first-ever 30-inch slide-in range with an oven cavity that can be split into two separate compartments for more efficient and convenient cooking. Similar to technology in the company's FlexDuo Oven, the new model enables a user families to cooking in the full 5.8 cubic foot capacity oven cavity for large dishes, like holiday turkeys, or use the Smart Divider to configure the oven into 2.4-cu-ft and 3.3-cu-ft top and bottom compartments for smaller items such as dinner and dessert. This allows multiple dishes to be cooked at two different temperatures at the same time with no noticeable aroma transfer. The new slide-in range with FlexDuo oven will be out in June 2013 at a suggested retail price of $2,399.
