Four-door fridge offers a third option

The Samsung RF4287 28-cubic-foot four-door refrigerator adds a third drawer with independent temperature control.

With three temperature zones, the refrigerator offers total control. Samsung

Refrigerators have a long history of being severely limited--at least in regards to controllable customization. From their humble beginnings as boxes basically designed to hold a giant ice cube, the "icebox" has come a long way. No longer are kitchens held hostage by slowly melting blocks of ice, but the same incapability to regulate temperature effectively exists today as it did back then. Sure, our modern refrigerators let you dial in preferred temperature, something their old-timey counterparts could only dream of, but when it comes right down to it, these giant monoliths found in every kitchen are still capable of only two setting: frozen or cold. Now there is something in between.

Increasing the amount of temperature options, the Samsung RF4287 28-cubic-foot four-door refrigerator offers a third temperature zone. The customizable fourth drawer is positioned at the waist of the refrigerator and runs across the entire width, providing an easy-access location in which to store temperature-sensitive items. The "FlexZone Drawer" offers four distinct temperature options, ranging from 29 degrees to 42 degrees. Perfect for storing a wide variety of items, the drawer can be tailored to your specific needs. From ice cream that is not frozen rock as solid as it might become in the freezer, to snack trays or even wine that would benefit from a warmer starting point, the middle drawer on this new Samsung fridge supplies needed convenience that's perfect for toady's modern kitchen.
