By Lauren M. StapletonPosted September 07, 2018 10:37:16Samsung’s fridge filter and filter for washing dishes will soon be available for pre-order.
The Samsung refrigerator unit can help prevent food poisoning by filtering out water.
It can also be used to remove food residues from the refrigerator and keep it fresh for up to 48 hours.
“The filter is a non-intrusive appliance that is designed to protect your food and it also works as a filter for your refrigerator.
If the water gets too dirty, it can also help remove food residue,” said Rob Lohman, Samsung’s director of global brand strategy.”
We’re excited to be able to bring the new filter to consumers as soon as the product is available, and we expect to start shipping this summer,” Lohmann added.
Samsung’s refrigerator unit, which is expected to cost between $180 and $200, is being made in partnership with a Japanese food service company, and it is being developed with help from Samsung’s Innovation Labs and R&D labs in Korea.
The filter comes with a built-in sensor that will be used for measuring the amount of bacteria in your food, and a built in thermostat that can be used in the event of a leak.
It will be manufactured by a Chinese company, Samsung Precision Manufacturing Co., Ltd.
The unit has a temperature of between 45 and 50 degrees Celsius, which can be set to whatever temperature your fridge wants to keep you cool, Lohmans said.
The company said the filter can also function as a sanitizer, and is designed for use in the kitchen.
Samsung said it will begin selling the fridge filter in the U.S. on September 10.
The company expects the filter to reach consumers in the first quarter of 2019.
