Samsung hits 5,000 sales for its new Chef Collection fridgesSamsung Electronics said on Thursday that it has sold 5,000 Chef Collection refrigerators in Korea in the 100 days since the product’s domestic release in March.
Chef Collection, a set of kitchen appliances that includes refrigerators, ovens, microwaves and dishwashers, is a premium brand that the company introduced last year to compete with luxury home appliance makers.
Samsung launched the full Chef Collection lineup in New York early this month.
The four-door refrigerator has several chef-inspired features, including Chef Mode, which minimizes temperature fluctuation, and Chef Pantry, which stores ingredients that are more fresh or fragile. It also has a triple-cooling system and a metal cooling plate, which reduces the loss of cold air.
Its price in the United States ranges from $5,700 to $6,000.
