Get ready to bring in the holiday season with some brand new kitchen appliances from Samsung! These products offer the latest and greatest features and technology to help simplify your kitchen needs. From refrigerators with built in cameras to Wi-Fi enabled temperature probe ovens, Best Buy has you covered!  I’m super excited to tell you about some of my favorite features on these amazing kitchen appliances from Samsung.

The first product that caught my eye is the Samsung Family Hub 2.0. 4-Door French Door Refrigerator. Help manage your home with food management, family connection, and entertainment capabilities- all controlled from a 21.5″ Wi-Fi enabled touch screen. It allows  you to stay connected with your family by sharing multiple calendars, memos, notes and photos! You can also stream videos, music, and even watch your Samsung TV directly from your Family Hub! And if that’s not enough to impress you, Samsung Voice by “Bixby” enables integrated voice activated features. This large refrigerator has 22.2 cu. ft. capacity which is enough to fit all your favorite foods. The FlexZone drawer lets you have four different temperature control settings with Smart Divider. This beautiful stainless steel appliance has a special coating to help prevent finger prints and smudges which gives it a very sleek, clean look. It also has high efficiency LED lighting for brighter, cooler and more energy efficient lighting. But I haven’t even got to my favorite part yet. Brace yourself, because this Samsung refrigerator has an auto water fill with infuser. This means you can easily create delicious, refreshing flavored water right from your refrigerator! The Ice Master produces 8.8 lbs. of ice per day so you can have your favorite ice cold flavored water on tap! Another one of my favorite features is the Food Management. You can create shopping lists and see inside the refrigerator from anywhere with 3 built-in cameras! You can even set expiration notices to make sure everything is fresh! Last but certainly not least, the Samsung Family Hub 2.0 is 2016 Energy Star Certified.

The second product I’m totally digging is the Samsung Microwave Combination Wall Oven. The oven has a Steam Cook feature which delivers moisture at precise times for a crisp, browned outside, and tender inside so you can bake and roast with professional, mouth-watering results. In the microwave oven, Speed Power Convection technology reduces cooking time. You can enjoy the comfort of Analog-Knobs combined with the advanced technology of a touch controlled digital display. It has Wi-Fi connectivity and Wi-Fi Enabled Temperature Probe which means you can turn on/ off, preheat, or change the temperature of the oven directly from an app on your smart phone. The Flex Duo feature on the oven allows you to cook three different dishes at three different temperatures simultaneously with the Smart Divider. So there’s no longer a need to stress over hosting Thanksgiving dinner because cooking has never been easier! One of my favorite dishes to cook over the holidays is my famous sweet potato casserole. However, it was quit the challenge to ensure the potatoes were thoroughly cooked without burning the marshmallow topping. Being able to cook three different dishes at three separate temperatures is not only a huge time saver, but incredibly convenient. This technology not only improves my cooking but gives me the peace of mind to do mutilate tasks at once from the convenience of my phone. One of my absolute favorite features of this Samsung kitchen appliance is the Hybrid Clean feature which makes it very easy to clean grease and residue at low temperatures with less odor. So not only can this amazing device make it easier to cook and bake, but clean up is a breeze!

Right now, you can get 10% off your purchase when you buy four or more Samsung kitchen appliances at Best Buy! If you really want to go above and beyond in this holiday season, give your loved one the gift that keeps on giving. Whether they’ve been naughty or nice, who doesn’t deserve the freshest food and mouth-watering meals? These amazing products not only simplify your life, provide peace of mind, and give your kitchen a sleek, new look- but they will absolutely impress any guests you have over this holiday season. Its time to spread the love and it all starts at Best Buy!

LG’s InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerators tinted glass panel lets you knock twice on the panel to view the contents inside. Normally the tinted glass is dark and blends in with the natural color of the refrigerator, however once you knock twice on the panel you will notice that the section will light up and illuminate allowing you to view and select items inside without having to open up the refrigerator!  By not letting any cold air out while selecting items with the door closed, this energy efficient method will reduce your energy costs.  The ColdSaver panel reduces cold air lost to extend the freshness of food.

 

LG’s InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerators also offer a very sleek design with tinted glass, finger resistant and smudge proof stainless steel, and a smooth, sophisticated finish. There is also up to 31 cubic feet of usable space in these super-capacity refrigerators, depending on which refrigerator you purchase. Which means there is more than enough room to store a generous amount of food for your entire family’s needs. All of the refrigerators include a water and ice cube dispenser which is always a very convenient and must have feature.

Anytime I write a grocery list, I end up standing in front of the refrigerator with the door wide open for ten minutes trying to figure out what was expired or needed to be replaced. I had no idea how much energy was needed to get the refrigerator back to its target temperature once the door had been left open for that amount of time. The idea of knocking on a glass panel and being able to see everything inside the refrigerator without opening the door is  cutting edge technology.  Not only is this energy efficient refrigerator a great way to save money on utility bills but it is also visually appealing. The sleek design with fingerprint resistant stainless steel is a very warm, clean look that would make the perfect addition to any modern kitchen and you can purchase it directly from Best Buy.

Did you know that Pepto-Bismol provides 5 symptom digestive relief in 3 different forms? Whether you like to take liquid, caplets or chewable tablets Pepto-Bismol has you covered. I prefer to take the original Pepto-Bismol liquid, as I believe it’s faster acting, while my hubby prefers to take caplets. Pepto-Bismol is ideal for all your digestive relief including heartburn, indigestion, nausea, upset stomach or diarrhea. Pepto-Bismol is actually my favorite go-to product for my re-occurring heartburn and indigestion.

I love spicy food especially jalapenos and other various peppers. But as I get older, I experience much more severe and intense heart burn, as well as indigestion. I need a medicine that is fast-acting and effective while providing a pleasant taste. Pepto-Bismol has never failed or let me down. It gets the job done fast and is super convenient. Pepto-Bismol comes in a variety of flavors including original, cherry and peppermint.

My profession involves a lot of travel and nobody wants to get blind sided by an upset stomach, heart burn or indigestion especially while on a plane, in an airport, taxi, hotel room lobby, basically any where outside of your normal comfort zone. That’s why I’m always sure to pack up some Pepto-Bismol tablets and have them on my person or in my hand bag at all times.

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 1.15.01 AMOne of the hardest things parents ever have to do is watch their the child move onto the next phase of their life  when it comes time for them to “leave the nest” . It can be a stressful and overwhelming time when your son or daughter has graduated high school and is about to attend college in the near future. But more importantly, this should be a time to rejoice and be grateful that the most precious thing in your life is on their path to success. Preparing them for this journey is essential and there is no better way to do that than to make sure they are covered with all the tools and gadgets to make their life easier. That’s why Best Buy has your covered with all the greatest gifts for grads!

What dorm room or apartment would be complete without some awesome, top-of-the line products from Best Buy?  The LG Microwave + Pizza Oven and Frigidaire 3.1 Cu. Ft. Compact Refrigerator are two items off the top of my head that would make perfect gifts for any grad. Another great gift would be the Ninja Blender so they can make their favorite fruit smoothie before class! Or maybe they prefer coffee instead, in which case the Keurig Elite Single-Serve Brewer would be your answer.

Now that we got some basics covered we can move onto their entertainment needs. The Samsung 32” Class LED 1080p Smart HDTV along with the Amazon Fire TV is a college students best friend. You can instantly stream your favorite movies, music  or TV shows on your Hulu, Netflix and Pandora accounts. Every kid needs to be able to relax and take a load off after a long week of cramming for mid terms or finals. But even more important than entertainment needs, is their educational needs. No college student is prepared without the proper equipment. The HP Slate 7 Plus 7 Tablet is great way to have the internet readily available for when it comes time for those research papers. And don’t forget the HP Envy Wireless e-All-in-One Printer so you wont have to make any late night  trips to the schools library to print stuff off.
