The Kitchen Of The Future – Magnet And Samsung Launch Smart Kitchen
Smart homes are all the rage right now, with everything from fully automated lighting, heating, security and music to app-enabled kitchen appliances. Hot on the heels of this ongoing innovation in interiors, Magnet Kitchens has recently partnered up with Samsung to introduce the new, revolutionary Smart Kitchen. One of its aims is to show consumers that you don’t have to have a sleek, contemporary handless kitchen design to integrate smart technology; a classic scheme can work just as well both practically and visually.
Whether it’s ovens that notify your phone when dinner is ready or fridges’ contents that you can see from your mobile, this latest high-tech set-up is designed to free up valuable time for the user, making life simpler and turning everyday chores into something eminently more fun and enjoyable.
The Family HubTM American-style smart fridge-freezer for instance comes with internal cameras. Peek inside your fridge with your phone using the in-built cameras and keep track of your stock of groceries and their expiry dates to help better organise your weekly shop and reduce food waste. Buy groceries directly from the Family HubTM touch screen and stay on top of everyone’s schedules with the live family calendar on the fridge door. Additionally, play music or mirror what’s on the TV to carry on watching your favourite show and stay entertained while you serve up all-important family meals.
Cook without the kerfuffle using the Multifunction Oven with Gourmet TechnologyTM. Save time and energy with this Samsung connected oven that sends a notification to your phone when dinner is ready. Settings can also be controlled remotely from your mobile. Plus, with the ‘Smart Things’ app, you can send recipes straight to your Magnet kitchen and share the instructions to your oven via Wi-Fi, taking the hassle out of meal planning.
Stay in control with the Samsung hob and hood, equipped with Auto ConnectivityTM technology, which means that your hood turns on automatically when the hob is turned on. Check out the WaterWallTM dishwasher too, which detects and diagnoses its own problems by notifying you of solutions via your phone.
These cutting-edge products are a great addition to the kitchen, alongside Magnet’s Innovations range. Keep the family entertained with the USB charging tray, tablet stand and the Sound Bar, a sound system that blends seamlessly into cabinets and provides the kitchen with superior sound.
“We know our customers need all the help they can get to make life more relaxed,” says Hayley Simmons of Magnet, “particularly family life, as it can get pretty hectic when everyone is together at home. A better-connected family starts with a better-connected kitchen, which is which we’ve partnered up with Samsung to offer a smart Magnet kitchen that fits our customers’ lives and not just their kitchen.”
Nick Bevan of Samsung UK & Ireland adds, “Here at Samsung, we want all of our Smart Home products to work at your convenience and the kitchen is a key place where we can make that happen. Innovations that actually help consumers and make their daily lives easier is something you’ll see right across our product range, whether it’s our Family HubTM fridge-freezer, which allows you to browse online and create shopping lists right from your fridge door or our multifunction ovens. We’re delighted to be partnering with Magnet to showcase how we can help.”
