“The refrigerator’s connectivity, enabling remote management of its features, helps enhance the refrigerator’s efficiency,” notes Jenn-Air marketing director Brian Maynard. “In addition to these technological advances, we’ve also incorporated the elegant design details Jenn-Air is known for, including our modern, obsidian black refrigerator interior.”

Blending in seamlessly with the rest of your smart home thanks to its companion iOS or Android app, the refrigerator’s temperature can be remotely controlled via your smartphone.

Also included in the smart fridge is an integrated cubed/crushed ice and water dispenser, which can be programmed to deliver precise amounts of water to frequently used water bottles and pitchers. Other details include soft-close refrigerator and freezer drawers, as well as integrated cabinet LED strip lighting.

Customers have a choice between the Euro-Style design, which comes with slightly curved, metal handles, and the more commercial Pro-Style option, which includes metal handles with diamond etched grip. The Euro-Style fridge will set you back $4,599, whereas the Pro-Style option is set to debut at $4,699.
