Samsung went with a semi-unique, "t-type" build for this fridge. The top two sections are for refrigerated goods, while the bottom two sections make up the freezer.

Recessed handles help accentuate the build, making for an instantly elegant appearance.

You'll also notice a vanishing LED display whenever you open the door. Thirty seconds later, it'll disappear into the stainless steel.

Inside, you'll find a grand total of 34 cubic feet of storage space, 19 of which are dedicated to the fridge.

The control panel sits atop the lower right door, meaning you need to open a door in order to use it. One of its best features is the option of switching that lower right section between freezer and fridge mode -- you know, in case you somehow manage to run out of room up top.

The fridge also boasts a bevy of features drawn from Samsung's "Club des Chefs" initiative, which enlisted world-class chefs to serve as a sort of culinary think tank to help inform the fridge design.

In the left door, you'll find the Chef Basket, which comes right out of the fridge for easy storage of prep ingredients.

The fridge comes with two stainless steel "Chef Pans" -- they slide into place beneath a shelf, allowing you to store and marinate meals. When you're ready to cook, they can go straight into the oven, then on into the dishwasher.

The fridge is also equipped to hold SodaStream CO2 carbonators right in the door. Screw one into place, and you'll be able to enjoy sparkling water on demand.

The Chef Collection fridge retails for $6,000 in the US, which is a whole lot of money. Still, this is a whole lot of fridge we're talking about, and compared with premium niche brands like Sub-Zero and Viking, it might actually be a bargain. Check out our full review for the whole story.
