Samsung has announced two new premium French door refrigerator models with huge capacities, innovative Showcase door design and a customisable shelving system to help families better organise the contents of their fridges. 
Both are French Door Food Showcase models, with the first is an 828L three-door model for $4299 and the second is an 886L four-door model for $4599.

Both models eligible for Samsung’s $250 cash-back offer if purchased before the 28th of September, 2014, and if a copy of the original purchase receipt is sent to Samsung by email scan or post within 14 days of submitting an online claim form, as explained here

Samsung says the stand-out feature of the range is its “Showcase Door”, which sits between the external door and internal shelves to add an extra transparent layer inside, presenting “a practical way to easily store and access frequently used items such as milk and butter”. 
It can be split into zones and organised by food group or type, with the shelving labelled “to assist in accessing the food you love fast; beverages, condiments, dairy and small items”, and is said to be “great for busy families helping to organise their food and reducing the possibility of items being lost or forgotten in the back of the refrigerator”.
The “Innercase” of both models is for larger, bulkier items, and is fitted with foldable tempered glass shelves, offering great customisation and easy storage of large items.
Both models have a 2.5 star energy efficiency rating for the energy conscious, with Samsung’s Digital Inverter compressor motor offering “exceptional cooling performance” and a 10 year parts warranty.
Additional cooling is delivered through Samsung’s Twin Cooling technology, which “cools the refrigerator and freezer compartments separately ensuring outstanding temperature and humidity control to help minimise the mixing of odours.”
The 886L four-door model also has a customisable middle drawer with Flex Zone technology, so you can customise the temperature between four set temperatures – handy when entertaining and juggling multiple dishes. 
A “Smart Divider” also lets you suit the food items that need to be stored from meat and seafood to drinks and snacks.

Meanwhile, the 828L three-door model has a Twin Ice Maker – one in the refrigerator and the other in the upper drawer section of the freezer, which can come in handy when you’re hosting events or dinner parties at home.

Mike Lilly, Samsung Australia’s Head of Home Appliances, said: “Not only are the new three and four-door, French door models aesthetically beautiful, they offer a  sophisticated design in a large capacity format – great for entertaining. 
“In addition to the Showcase door, there are other smart storage features including, foldable shelves for when you need to make room for large platters.
“At their heart, we want our appliances to compliment and help manage the daily life of Australian families and we believe that the Food Showcase range does this in a way that is different from any refrigerator range Samsung has offered in the past,” Lilly concluded. 
Additional features include:
– Removable shelving
– Sleek handle design to enable easy handling of the drawers
– Space Max technology provides more space inside the refrigerator while keeping the same external dimensions
– One touch drawer and smart guard that provides easy access to small food items and various shaped containers
– Spacious freezer compartment containing two easy-slide drawers to help manage freezer space.
– Ice Blue LED lighting
– Built in light for the water and dispenser 
Both models are available now through the usual retailers.
