Samsung’s $13,000 refrigerator is made with porcelain

If you’re in the market for a new refrigerator and have more money that you know what to do with, perhaps you might want to consider the new high-end refrigerator that Samsung has announced today. It’s made with porcelain materials and has thus been priced at the higher-end of the spectrum.

The new refrigerator is part of Samsung’s Chef Collection. It has a unique interior design complete with Korean white porcelain. A lot of work went into developing this product.

Samsung was very involved in the material discovery stage. The development and design team visited seven different countries over two years and conducted hundreds of tests to select the best materials for the Chef Collection Porcelain.

It actually makes sense to use porcelain in a refrigerator. The material doesn’t have pores on its surface so it’s not prone to discoloration or smell, particularly when something like sauce or soup is spilled on it. It can easily be wiped with water to achieve that new look once again.

It’s not just a dumb fridge. The Chef Collection Porcelain has a Family Hub that provides access to various apps for shopping, entertainment, food management and more. There’s even support for voice recognition.

You can imagine that this product isn’t going to be cheap. Samsung is going to sell it in South Korea in black color for 14.9 million won or just over $13,000. That’s quite a bit more than what the average consumer would spend on a refrigerator.
