Look! KitchenAid's New Refrigerator Has Built in USB!

KitchenAid, always looking to be innovative in their products, like the Briva in-sink dishwasher, has added a new refrigerator to their appliance lineup. What makes this refrigerator innovative? It contains a built in USB port, among other tech amenities like a full color LCD screen and LED lighting.

You might ask, why does a refrigerator need a USB port? The USB port, according to KitchenAid, is for loading images. While we are not sure how often we would use this, we do appreciate the other features of this refrigerator like the full color LCD screen. The LCD screen serves a variety of purposes including care and use information, a kitchen timer, information on ingredient substitutions and measurement conversions. Other tech forward features of this French Door bottom freezer refrigerator include LED lighting which efficiently illuminates the interior.

In addition to the looks, and tech features of this refrigerator, we also love the in-door water and ice system which provides precise measurement of water for use as a cooking and baking ingredient, in addition to providing filtered water and ice. We think this would come in handy when cooking and baking by providing one less ingredient we would have to measure. Of course, like many of the competitors of this refrigerator, there are individually sealed storage compartments including a pantry compartment with an independent temperature control and a crisper with extra gaskets for perfect sealing and humidity control.

This new refrigerator will be available starting in April at a suggested retail price of $2,800. For more information, see KitchenAid.
