Samsung Fridge

Samsung Electronics, the flagship subsidiary of the Samsung Group, has partnered with Israel-based home carbonation systems maker SodaStream to deliver sparkling water right from the refrigerator.

Powered by SodaStream’s personalised carbonation technology, Samsung RF31FMESBSR 36" Four-Door Refrigerator features an automatic sparkling water dispenser.

Using a standard SodaStream 60L CO2 cylinder, the automatic sparkling water dispenser delivers cold, filtered sparkling water from the same mechanism on the refrigerator door that produces still water and ice.

Samsung RF31FMESBSR 36" Four-Door Refrigerator allows consumers to select up to three levels of carbonation for their sparkling water.

Samsung Electronics America home appliances sales and marketing senior vice president Kevin Dexter said: "By joining forces with SodaStream, we are able to offer our consumers something never before seen on a refrigerator and bring a new experience to the kitchen."

SodaStream CEO Daniel Birnbaum said: "This product is a key milestone in a vision that represents the future for enjoying fresh carbonated beverages at home, easily made at the touch of a button, and without the clutter and waste that is produced by the old pre-packaged beverage industry."

Priced at $3899, the Four-Door Refrigerator will be available in the US from April 2013.

SodaStream’s home beverage carbonation systems are available at more than 60,000 retail stores in 45 countries around the world, including 15,000 retail stores in the US.
