A Place for Everything

Samsung’s new Chef Collection fridge is one of the Korean company’s biggest, holding up to 34 bags of groceries. Temperature control is its key feature: One compartment can serve as either a freezer or a fridge, depending on the cook’s needs, and there’s a Chef Pantry set at 30° F for meats and fish, as well as a Chef Pan for marinating and storing food, which itself can go straight into the oven or dishwasher. $6,400; samsung.com.
