Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Nice modern refrigerator

Submitted by Samtian - 2/3/2022

We really like our Samsung Kimchi refrigerator exterior, which is Platinum bronze. It gives a nice modern look. We like the two lower compartments which can be converted to a freezer or a cooler. We also like the bins which come with the refrigerator; these help keep our meat fresh. The power freeze feature is really nice. It allows us to quickly freeze food to keep it fresh. The fingerprint resistance surface works. Fridge always looks so clean and nice. One drawback is the 'stay fresh crisper' drawers. It's a little inconvenient to pull out the drawer and then push back the top section to open. Other than that, the refrigerator is very nice.

Awesome fridge

Submitted by trysampen - 2/3/2022

I love the kimchi refrigerator. The platinum bronze fridge looks modern and blends well into my kitchen's decor. It's easy to switch the bottom two compartments from refrigerator to freezer. I love the many bins that come with refrigerator. I use the bins to store meat, kimchi, and kitchen tools and accessories. I also like the bright interior LED lighting inside the fridge. It's not too bright that it will hurt your eyes. 2-min door alarm is useful. It reminds me to shut fridge door when I accidentally leave it open. The only downside is I wish the side compartment is bigger so I can put 1 gallon milk in it.

Cool fridge

Submitted by kcharles - 1/13/2022

This fridge looks beautiful in my kitchen. I was concerned that the color may not go well with my stainless steel appliances but they go together fine. I love the fact that I can change the temperature of each compartment and really customize how cold each section is. Having the app to be able to adjust everything is really helpful as well.

Need attention

Submitted by Abbyjay - 1/4/2022

I bought this eight months ago and didn't utilize until months later. The containers really need to improve.. lighter color, clear so contents are visible.

Beautiful Unique Refrigerator

Submitted by snm18831 - 11/1/2021

The Kimchi refrigerator is really unique and beautiful. Everyone that has seen it has been intrigued. The color is gorgeous and actually blends pretty well with my other stainless steel appliances. My favorite feature of the refrigerator is that I can change the temperature settings for all compartments. The two bottom drawers can be freezer or fridge compartments separate from one another. The only issue I have had is that there is no way to fit a gallon container in the refrigerator. The metal shelves are not adjustable. You can fit smaller tall items on the doors though so we have just started buying half gallons instead of gallons.

Multitasker Extraordinaire

Submitted by itzdat2002 - 10/25/2021

If you want a fridge that does it all, meet this Samsung powerhouse. Customizable to a point where you'll have to read the user's manual (don't worry-- it's very clear!), this is the fridge that does it all. Our household is a weird mix of health food nuts and ice cream devotees, but the many bins that divide up the freezer compartment keep everyone on their diets and most importantly, everything is always fresh and frozen solid. I've noticed a difference in the freshness of my foods, epscially produce... things are lasting far longer than ever before. Also, the fridge is deceptively roomy-- when it arrived, everyone worried about my Costco trips: how would everything fit in this seemingly compact footprint? But not only is this fridge a space saver, it easily fits everything that I buy and even keeps it displayed in a way where my kids can find their own snacks and help themselves. Easy to clean, the shelves wipe clean quickly. The open door reminder is also a helpful feature-- beeping when the heavy drawers haven't been fully closed. Although I haven't tried many of the hallmark features of this refrigerator (the customized temperature settings for fermenting kimchi, etc.), it is a kitchen powerhouse packed with features that keeps foods cold, easily accessible, and displayed proudly. The stainless steel doors wipe clean easily, minimizing fingerprints, and they definitely are the handsome centerpiece of my kitchen now. The only complaint woudl be that if you're accustomed to "American-sized" products, such as two-liter soda bottles, you may need to be a bit creative finding places to stash them (on their sides works just fine). This is a fridge aimed at a more delicate, health-conscious Asian population, and the American 'super-sized' mentality isn't something that this refrigerator is designed to accommodate. That said, this appliance is efficient, attractive, quiet, and roomy, so if you're looking for something to anchor the kitchen of a healthy, conscious, energy-efficient home, this is your best choice! Everything in this refrigerator is easily customizable, so give it a try, buy it, and let your imagination be the limit! You won't be disappointed and your food will be fresher than ever, at your fingertips, and displayed in beautiful style. This is a fridge for connoisseurs, for foodies, and for those with limited space in their kitchens but no limits on the space in their rich imaginations! Thanks for having me try this product! It's a hit!
