Samsung held a Night of Wonder event on August 5th, the night before BlogHer 2010. It focused around their home appliances and was held at the Samsung Experience store at the Time Warner Building in New York City. I was honored to attend the reception which included a short talks by James Politeski, Vice President of Home Appliance Sales and Marketing and Kurt Jovais- Director of Samsung Home Appliances.
The Samsung representatives were very accommodating as I and other a few other bloggers arrived late. They held off the talks until everyone had arrived and since dinner was being held after, I know that made things difficult for everyone. Thank you Samsung for understanding that other events were being held earlier and that it took time to get from one place to the other.
Besides the good company, the lovely food and the information I received, I had the chance to look over all of the appliances thoroughly. Even though things were running late, we still had time to ask questions and make suggestions.
Here’s some information about the appliances I saw, touched, learned about and want to own (All are Energy Star Rated, expect for the range because ranges are not rated):
Samsung Four Door Refrigerator (RF4287) – The fourth door is the drawer that is counter high. It has an adjustable divider and temperature controls. The refrigerator is large capacity and has shelves that are adjustable. You can fit gallon size milk and juice bottles on the doors.
Samsung High Capacity Washer and Dryer (WF520/DV520): The washer has the largest capacity in the industry. The PowerFoam technology creates foam by dissolving detergent with air and water, which makes washing faster. The Dryer uses a steam technology which reduces wrinkles. Save time by washing and drying faster with large loads (up to 31 towels).
Samsung Dishwasher (DMT800): The Stormwash system includes the heavy duty spray jets and the wheel on the bottom rack, which deep cleans the dirtiest of dishes, pots and pans. No need to pre-rinse! The upper rack is adjustable and the tines can be removed.
Samsung Freestanding Induction Range (FTQ307): Induction cooking is fast! You can boil water up to 50% faster than with an electric range. After use, the range top cools off quickly so you can clean up faster. The convection oven also cooks faster and more evenly. There is a warming drawer and a delay start feature.
My take on the Samsung appliances is that they are made to save time and energy. They have innovative features that make housework seem less like a chore and I’d love to re-do my kitchen and laundry room with all of them!

I attended the Samsung Night of Wonder reception. I did not receive any compensation for this post, nor was I asked to write it. I wanted to share it because I believe the appliances are fantastic!
