Samsung's new cordless vacuum and microwave oven are available in Singapore

Samsung Jet Cordless Vacuum Cleaner.

If you're in the market for a new cordless vacuum or microwave oven, you'll be pleased to know that the Samsung Jet Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner and the Samsung Colour Series Microwave Ovens are now available in Singapore.

 

Samsung Jet Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner

Soft Action Brush.

Samsung's latest cordless vacuum is available in two models with different powering ratings - the Samsung Jet 200W and the Samsung Jet 150W. These vigorous suckers pack a Digital Inverter Motor and the Jet Cyclone system that optimises the airflow within the cordless vacuum's aerodynamic design, helping them maintain their energy efficiency - pretty important for most cordless vacuum types. The vacuum can last up to one hour on a single full charge at the minimum power setting with no motorised tool attached.

5-layer HEPA filtration.

Other features include a best-in-class 5-layered HEPA filtration system that captures up to 99.9% of dust particles between 0.3μm to 10μm in size (pollen, and non-visible dust, for example). The Samsung Jet's 0.8-litre dust compartment can be emptied with a simple click-and-twist, and the multi-cyclone system (together with the dust bin) can be rinsed under running water.

Samsung packs several brush tools with the cordless Samsung Jet, such as the default Soft Action Brush with 180-degree swivelling capabilities, a Mini Motorised Tool for furniture and mattress use, an Extension Crevice Tool for harder-to-reach spaces, and a Flex Tool for awkward, dust-prone spots around the house.

The Samsung Jet 200W weighs a mere 1.66kg, and the 150W variant is 1.48kg. That's 12% and 21% lighter (respectively) than the Samsung Cordless Powerstick Pro (VS8000). They are now available at the official Samsung online store, as well as other major consumer electronics and IT stores including Audio House, Best Denki, Courts, Gain City, Harvey Norman, Mega Discount Store, and Parisilk.

Model Colour Price
Samsung Jet 150W Airborne (White) S$699
Samsung Jet 200W ChroMetal (Silver) S$869

 

Samsung Colour Series Microwave Oven

These lifestyle-centric microwave ovens by Samsung are made to look sleek, blending in with modern home aesthetics while doing everything a microwave oven is supposed to do.

What sets them apart is the new Grill Fry function that allows fried foodstuff to be microwaved with a little cooking oil, without compromising the texture of fried goodness. The Colour Series Microwave Ovens come with an easy-to-clean, Teflon-coated Crusty Plate that can withstand temperatures of up to 200°C for this very purpose.

It also features all the key capabilities of modern microwave ovens, such as Fast Defrosting and a Home Dessert function for baking pastries using pre-set recipes.

The microwave oven uses a durable ceramic enamel interior that can be scrubbed clean with no discolouration over time, and it's both rust- and scratch-resistant with up to 99.9% anti-bacterial certification (as tested by Hohenstein Laboratories GmbH & Co. KG).

Samsung Colour Series Microwave Oven is expected to be available from mid-May 2020 on Samsung Online Store, and other major consumer electronics & IT stores, including Audio House, Best Denki, Courts, Gain City, Harvey Norman, Mega Discount Store and Parisilk, through their respective online stores.

There will be two variants available - one with a turntable, Crusty Plate, and rack, and the other version will feature only a turntable. Official pricing is yet to be announced.
