Samsung’s FlexDuo technology will allow you to divide the oven into two compartments for cooking two dishes at once making meal time more efficient and more convenient than ever before.
You can choose between using the range’s full size 5.8 cu. ft. capacity oven for larger dishes like roasted turkeys, or you can use the Smart Divider to divide the oven into 2.4 cu. ft. and 3.3 cu. ft. top and bottom compartments for smaller items like dinner and a dessert.
The Samsung NE597N0PBSR Induction Range is the first-ever 30″ freestanding electric range to feature the FlexCook Zone and Samsung Boil Alert, as well as SteamQuick technology.
The Flexcook zone acts as a full-length bridge element, letting customers cook large pots and pans across one large induction element without having to worry about incomplete heat distribution. When the bridge element is not in use, it can be used as two separate 9-inch elements.
Samsung’s Boil Alert technology senses small vibrations as water begins to heat up. When the vibrations reach a certain level, the range provides less heat and also sounds a series of beeps.
SteamQuick technology is Samsung’s new cleaning innovation which requires less time, power and effort. 10 pounces of water is all that is needed to clean your oven in just 20 minutes.
The NE58F9710SR FlexDuo Range should be available for $2,399.99 MSRP and the NE597N0PBSR Induction Range should be available for $1,999.99 MSRP.
Pair one of these ranges with Samsung’s ME179KFETSR OTR Speed Oven if you have limited space and need more convection cooking. This microwave is touted as having best-in-class LED lighting. $649 MSRP.

Solidify was inspired by global climatic changes and how our high-tension atmosphere can create crystallized and frosted solids. The cool tones of this trend are misted and sensorial, as melded metal and mirrored flecks are set within frosted solids for depth and dimension. The surfaces are fractured and scattered fragments are fused, creating delicate and ethereal patterns that bring a softly opulent edge to these hard surfaces.
Interference explores the lure of semi-precious stones, with a feeling of sparkle and glamour, yet with an understated opulence that conveys mystical and organic luxury.
