This kitchen staple just had a serious makeover

When you think of appliances and devices that simplify your life, we can almost guarantee that including a fridge in this list would be relatively unlikely. We’re constantly in search of the ‘next big thing’ that not only simplify our increasingly busy lives, but allows us to keep up with our ‘always on’ mentality. In a generation of relative connectivity, Millennials have the whole multi-screen, multitasking down to a fine art.

Which is exactly why Samsung’s latest innovation will have you thinking “just what will they do next?”. Enter the new Samsung Family Hub refrigerator, which features a WiFi enabled, 21.5” touch screen which allows you to manage your groceries, connect with your family, and entertain like never before.


The Family Hub displays all communications on its full HD LCD screen, allowing you to post, share and update calendars, pin photos and leave notes – all via your smartphone*.

This sophisticated new tech is revolutionising the heart of your home – the kitchen – by syncing up with your smartphone via the Samsung SmartHome app available to both Apple and Android devices. Coordinate your family’s schedule, leave notes and reminders, and display snaps from your latest holiday from anywhere, using your smartphone and apps like Sticki.


Never suffer from a mid-aisle panic at the supermarket ever again – the built-in camera technology will allow you a peek inside your fridge. Perfect if you’ve forgotten to check what you need for dinner later that night! You can also track product expiration dates to cut down on food waste, update your grocery list, or view recipes, making the Family Hub your go-to resource to keep your kitchen fully stocked.


If that wasn’t enough, the Family Hub doubles as an entertainment unit, with the option of streaming music via a built-in speaker, or by syncing up via Bluetooth with compatible wireless speakers* to enjoy music throughout your home. Hook into the screen mirroring function with your Samsung Smart TV to keep up with the Kardashians or indulge in your favourite movie while you cook.

The Samsung Family Hub is available in Black Caviar colour at Noel Leeming and Harvey Norman, RRP $9,999, or head here for more.
