Samsung press conference at CES 2014

The Korean giant will show its latest TVs, home appliances, and other electronics.

  • James Martin 1/6/2014 10:35:41 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/6/2014 10:35:46 PM
    To recap the TV stuff: Two series of curved TVs, bendable concept piece, and no new plasmas or OLEDs. And Michael Bay walked off the stage midsentence after the teleprompter choked.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:36:18 PM
    Panel has shifted to reveal Samsung's Chef Collection on stage. Sleek stainless-steel finish, etc.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 10:36:22 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:36:38 PM
    The Chef Collection combines premium design with professionals' insight, Dexter says
  • Jessica Dolcourt 1/6/2014 10:36:57 PM
    That panel looks ridiculously detailed.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:37:05 PM
    We're lucky enough to have two of the world's top chefs with us today, Dexter says. Michel Troisgros and Christopher Kostow.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:37:39 PM
    Troisgros: Think of us as an advisory board of professional chefs. We want to share our know-how on food and cooking.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 10:37:42 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/6/2014 10:37:47 PM
    Once again, here's the full roundup of the TV news. Now I'll go listen to the kitchen stuff.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 10:38:04 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:38:04 PM
    Dexter: When we see appliances like this, it's really special. Chef Collection is our first premium line from this collaboration
  • David Katzmaier 1/6/2014 10:38:14 PM
    I'm suddenly really hungry.
  • David Katzmaier 1/6/2014 10:38:30 PM
    Those grapes are HUGE!
  • Jessica Dolcourt 1/6/2014 10:38:53 PM
    It's cool that they brought Michelin-starred chefs on stage to talk appliances, but I can imagine a squadron of chefs who scoff at precise tools and reach for an old banged-up pan on a spatter-crusted gas range.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:38:57 PM
    We've taken insight from chefs to heart, Dexter says. Special storage unit in refrigerator. Chef pantry, can set the temperature for exactly how you need it for certain foods like fish and poultry, etc.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:39:26 PM
    Our triple cooling system allows for even temperature, Dexter says. Fridge-in-freezer panel.
  • David Katzmaier 1/6/2014 10:39:29 PM
    Hmmm. Who would've thunk a "metal cooling plate" would be a world-beating fridge innovation?
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 10:39:34 PM
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 10:39:53 PM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 1/6/2014 10:39:53 PM
    What happens with the fridge-in-freezer if you want to use it for both at once? And how long does it take to switch from cold to colder and back again? I must know more...
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:40:03 PM
    Troisgros: With a conventional oven, the thermometers are not very accurate.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 10:40:14 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:40:31 PM
    Dexter: We've paid just as much attention to temperature control in oven as in fridge. Flex duo ovens make two different temperatures at the same time.
  • David Katzmaier 1/6/2014 10:40:48 PM
    Battle of the premium kitchens endorsed by celebrity chefs. LG had only one chef, but Samsung enlisted two. Your move, Frigidaire.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 10:41:00 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:41:05 PM
    The chief have even helped us to innovate in an appliance that hasn't had any innovation in the last 40 years, the dishwasher, Dexter says. There was a "whoop" from someone in the crowd for that one.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 10:41:41 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:41:41 PM
    Conventional rotary or circular sprays may not reach all items in the corners. Samsung developed Waterwall technology to leave all dishes perfectly cleaned all the time, Dexter says
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:41:56 PM
    The Chef Collection is yet another example of living smarter, Dexter says
  • David Katzmaier 1/6/2014 10:42:00 PM
    Onscreen briefly: "Conventional rotary don't always reach every corner." Huh.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:42:01 PM
    The chefs have left the stage
  • Jessica Dolcourt 1/6/2014 10:42:02 PM
    This interest in a super premium cooking line wouldn't be possible if it weren't for the new wave of foodieism and chef celebrity. We're lucky to live in this day and age.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:42:29 PM
    When we talk about cleaning, we also have to talk about laundry. The average US family does laundry more than seven times per week. Say it feels like a never-ending chore.
  • David Katzmaier 1/6/2014 10:42:45 PM
    I agree, Jessica. But I'm still hungry.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:42:49 PM
    At Samsung, wanted to make this quicker so you have more time to do the things you really want to do, Dexter says.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 1/6/2014 10:43:16 PM
    I'm thrilled that CNET has recently launched CNET Appliances, where our editors thoroughly test important housewares that real people use, since we apparently all do laundry every day, according to Samsung's stats.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 10:43:16 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:43:41 PM
    The 9000 series can handle 4X as much laundry as the average household does in an average load. These washers have the largest capacity in the market. Front-load washer can wash a load of laundry in half an hour, Dexter says.
  • David Katzmaier 1/6/2014 10:43:47 PM
    "These washers are large enough to wash your family of four in 30 minutes."
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:43:59 PM
    We've designed it to make it easy to reach every last towel from the washer, Dexter says.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:44:16 PM
    Dexter, like other execs, is stressing how much Samsung knows about its customers.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 1/6/2014 10:44:27 PM
    David, just put the kids in the front-load washer and in 30 minutes they'll be spic and span.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:44:29 PM
    All this passion we're talking about, we also apply to mobile devices, Dexter says as he exits the stage.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 10:44:55 PM
    Another video is up. This is showing kids using a tablet, etc
