Samsung Stoves

A kitchen isn’t much of a kitchen without a heat source. Continuing our look at how Samsung injects its gadget expertise into everyday appliances, let’s turn our attention to the humble stove.  They seem pretty straightforward, right? People don’t often take a look at what’s new with appliances so it is easy to just think that they’re all pretty much the same. With some of the more modern models you may be surprised to learn that they offer as much high technology and fancy features as any new gadget. Looks can be deceiving. The latest models from Samsung can be as different from your old stove as your new smartphone is from that old flip-phone you had in the 1990s.
