Last week I enjoyed a delicious lunch thanks to a demo from the Frankie's (Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli, owners of the Frankie Spuntino restaurants in NYC). Funny enough I was married at Frankie's 457 almost three years ago, so I was really excited to meet them and see how they prepared their signature dishes using some of Samsung's latest appliances at the Samsung House, a custom-designed and beautifully appointed home environment in the heart of New York City’s SoHo neighborhood.

Open for one week only, visitors will be inspired by a two-floor space featuring a fully operational kitchen and laundry room that showcase the beauty of Samsung’s innovative new products while offering a hands-on experience in elevating the function and style of their home and kitchen.

During the casual cooking demo, the Frankie's showed us to make a simple homemade potato gnocchi. They cooked the potato gnocchi on Slide-in Flex Duo Oven Electric Range (NE58F9710SR). This uber sleek range includes a built-in, high end look with a slide-in design that instantly upgrades the look of any kitchen or home renovation. It also also for the cooking for multiple dishes, which I love! They then used the range to heat up some butter and add the potato gnocchi and sage to the pan and then topped with parmasen for a fresh and delicious lunch. The range also offers a Flex Duo Oven can be split into two separate compartments to cook two dishes at the same time.

After the luncheon, we had the chance to check out the various appliances that were situated throughout the Samsung House. I was really impressed by the new Four Door Sparkling French Door Refrigerator with automatic sparkling water dispenser powered by SodaStream (RF31FMESB), an industry first, allows families to enjoy chilled sparkling or still water straight from their refrigerator door – saving both money and space and creating less space than bottled sparkling water. It also offers unmatched organization and style. I also had the chance to see the 5.0 cu. ft. High Efficiency Top-Load Washer (WA50F), an innovative washer that allows consumers to wash more in a single load than ever before with the industry’s capacity in its class. AquaJet™ Technology provides unsurpassed washing performance – while chrome accents, a curved glass lid and an ice-blue LED control panel make it worthy of a first or second floor laundry room. Another cool product was the T9000 Four Door Refrigerator with Convertible Zone (RF32FMQDBSR), with 32 cu. ft. of capacity, can fit up to 32 bags of groceries in a revolutionary new form factor. It features a 19.4 cu. ft. French Door refrigerator compartment on top and a 6.1 cu. ft. compartment on the lower right side that can covert to either be a refrigerator or freezer, giving families up to 25.5 cu. ft of fresh food capacity.

Samsung is also showcasing other products this year that are transforming the kitchen, including the Induction Range with FlexCook Zone (NE597N0PBSR), the Over-the-range (OTR) Speed Oven (ME179KFETSR) and the new DW80F800A dishwasher.

With a range of high quality products, Samsung knows how to meet the needs of the modern family with products that are designed to make life easier!
