How to make entertaining look like a breeze

Welcoming and entertaining friends for a long lunch is one of the joys of summer. With these smart appliances its even easier

A lazy Sunday lunch or casual Friday night dinner with friends is always a fun thing to do in summer.  What’s not to enjoy about chilled prosecco, lasagne and simple green salad for an alfresco lunch that goes late into the afternoon?  Or an easy one-pot casserole dinner and a sticky pudding to follow on a Friday night with good company and some of your favourite music?

Life doesn’t get much better than such simple pleasures and it’s just become easier to hold impromptu gatherings with Samsung’s latest kitchen darlings – Samsung Family Hub™  Fridge and Dual Cook Flex™ Oven – to help you out.

The fridge has a wi-fi enabled touch screen and built-in speakers so you can listen to your favourite playlist while cooking up a storm, as well as keeping your guests entertained.  It also performs more conventional fridge functions such as keeping that prosecco perfectly chilled and dispensing ice for a cocktail or two.

And the Samsung Dual Cook Flex™ is part of the easy-as equation because you could get dinner started while you’re still at the beach.  With wi-fi connectivity and by using the Samsung SmartThings App, you can pre-set and adjust the cooking temperature remotely.  The Dual Cook Flex™ means two doors, two temperatures at once and the ultimate cooking flexibility.  You’re able to slow-cook a casserole, and cook the pudding in the single oven, and as it has a 75L capacity you really can cater for crowds.  Not only will you be the host with the most, but also the host with the ingenious Samsung.  Visit Samsung.co.nz for more information.
