When shopping for a refrigerator these days, it is possible to find models that include feature lists that would be more at home in an iPad review than a refrigerator review. The world of computing has come to kitchen appliances, and threatens to overturn the status quo!
A few years back the manufacturer release an ‘internet refrigerator. However, it was not a great success. Unfortunately for LG refrigerator reviewers and the buying public really were not yet ready for the idea of connected fridge freezers.
Fast forward to the present day, and Samsung has followed in LG’s footsteps. However, as more people have come to depend on computers for more of their daily activities, and with the growth of social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, they can look forward to more success this time around.
The refrigerator reviews for these new Samsung appliances have been a lot more positive than the LG models experienced in their day. A lot of people are fans of the ‘WeatherBug’ application that lets you see the forecast for the day right on the door of your refrigerator.
Reviews of these refrigerators also highlight the ability to display recipes on the fridge. While some people will always prefer their recipes on paper, this high tech feature will definitely appeal to some consumers.
Twitter addicts gain the benefit of being able to follow their favorite feeds while they stand by the counter performing meal prep. Though some may argue that this high tech functionality may be a turn for the worse, as long as the home chef isn’t staring at the refrigerator while wielding a sharp knife it should not be a problem.
While the present crop of Samsung Connected Refrigerators are not cheap, this is simply because they are still considered cutting edge. In the next year or two I except that lower priced models will start to flood the market. Once prices drop then I would expect internet refrigerator reviews to start recommending them to more consumers, and that growth in this technology will start to take off!
