We took Samsung's flashy smart fridge for a spin (pictures)

Finally, the CNET Smart Home kitchen gets a smart refrigerator. And it's a doozy.

Yep, that's a refrigerator with a big-ass touchscreen on the door.

Specifically, that's the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator you're looking at. We set one up in the CNET Smart Home kitchen -- click through to take a look.

A fridge with apps

Look over the touchscreen and you'll find a variety of apps for scanning recipes, streaming music, syncing family calendars, ordering groceries for home delivery, or even mirroring the feed from a Samsung smart TV.

In the door

Open it up, and you'll notice three black dots inside the door flap.

Fridge-cams

Yep -- those are cameras. They snap a photo of your groceries each time you close the door.

Take a look

You can view the most recent photo by tapping the "View Inside" button on the touchscreen, or by pulling up Samsung's Smart Home app. That's a handy of way of double checking to see if you're out of milk while you're out at the grocery.

Ingredient tracking

You can also drag little icons over top of your ingredients to count down the days until they go bad.

Fancy finish

Aside from the touchscreen smarts, it's essentially the same build as other high-end, four-door fridges from Samsung, albeit with the option of a classy new black stainless steel finish.

Price point

The Family Hub Refrigerator starts at $5,600 for a stainless steel, standard depth unit, and goes up to $6,000 for a black stainless steel counter-depth unit like the one seen here. It isn't available outside of the US yet like some of Samsung's other four-door fridges, but that price converts roughly to £3,900 or AU$7,500.
