If there was one thing we could expect from CES 2021 it’s a response to COVID-19 in many ways, and one thing you might hear a lot of is “anti-bacterial”. Samsung is quick out of the blocks with a new French Door Fridge aimed at germaphobes.

The new fridge, available in two colours, features anti-bacterial handles, as well as an ultra-violet light inside.

Andrew Wand from Samsung Australia says “Now more than ever, our homes are our haven – a place where we live, learn, entertain and relax. The kitchen is arguably the heart of the home and Samsung believes that intuitive design and innovation is the key creating home appliances that can make a real difference in people’s lives.

“We’re excited to launch our new French Door Refrigerator range in Australia as they’re packed with new, smart technologies. New features include innovative storage designed to keep food fresher for longer; the beverage showcase that includes an internal water and ice dispenser with quick access to drinks for easy entertaining; and anti-bacterial handles for improved hygiene. I’m confident these new refrigerators will help many Aussies have a happier and healthier experience at home.”

As Mr Wand mentioned, the water dispenser and auto-fill water bottle are actually inside the fridge, however they don’t require you to open the whole fridge – instead, an easy access door gives you access to the water and a small amount of the in-door fridge storage.

Really handy, and great for limiting energy use too
