Customized holiday dinner place cards, caprese-filled crispy prosciutto cups and a power clean-up “after party” may seem out-of-reach for stressed-out holiday planners, but they are all just a click away as Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a market leader and award-winning innovator in home appliances and digital convergence, introduces Make Your House Work for the Holidays. A go-to online hub loaded with ideas, inspiration and smart product innovations for turning holiday stress into hosting success, Make Your House Work for the Holidays helps you plan, cook and clean to keep your home operating at peak performance.
To keep the 25 million homes expected to serve Thanksgiving dinners next week1 on track, Samsung has culled the best content of the season on the Samsung Home Appliance Facebook page.
“The holidays are fun and frenetic but for holiday cooks they can be frantic as well. What’s needed are tools, information and products to make dinners – and homes – as organized as possible,” said Kevin Dexter, Senior Vice President of Home Appliance Sales and Marketing, Samsung Electronics America. “Samsung’s innovative line of smart home appliances and our online hub allows you to plan, cook and clean with maximum efficiency and minimal drama. We want to help you spend less time in the kitchen and more time around the dining room table with family and friends.”
Make Your House Work for the Holidays features 30 ideas and articles, including holiday organizing and time-saving tips, and lots of delicious new holiday recipes – many from TakeBackYourTable.com founder Christina Stanley-Salerno. The site also includes the full range of Samsung Home Appliance innovations – from refrigeration organization to flexible cooking solutions to high performance cleaning options – to make holiday preparation a snap.
The site is easy to navigate and follows a path holiday cooks will easily recognize:
Who’s sitting where? What should I cook? Sit-down or buffet table? Who’s bringing what? What should I shop for? The pre-holiday questions are fast and furious. But Make Your House Work for the Holiday’s Planning section makes it easy and manageable. And Samsung’s refrigerator offerings help reduce the angst with more innovative storage and planning tools. The Samsung 31.6 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator is the largest in its class and has enough room for 32 bags of groceries to accommodate even the biggest shopping loads. That should come as welcome news to the 50% of holiday cooks who worry they don’t have enough space2. The Samsung LCD Refrigerator with apps includes a link to Epicurious which provides consumers access to favorite recipe ingredient lists – making the shopping process easier than ever.
And in case you’re wondering how the rest of America plans for the holidays: Everyone sits together at 40% of holiday dinners, while kids’ tables hold sway at 34% and buffet tables rule at 26%3.
No doubt, cooking is one of the biggest holiday challenges. And with an average of 5-6 side dishes, 1-2 main dishes, and 2-3 desserts4 to coordinate, the holiday arithmetic can add up to stress in the kitchen. Make Your House Work for the Holiday’s Cooking section provides easy-to-follow advice; tasty recipes like Baked Brie in Sourdough Loaf, Super Moist Herbed Mayonnaise Roast Turkey Breast, and Sweet Potato Pie with Sticky Pecan Sauce; and a multi-dish timer tool app for up to six items on your menu.
The Samsung Flex Duo Oven is a great de-stresser. It provides cooks with the option of preparing two dishes at two different temperatures, from one large capacity oven into two separate 2.7 cu. ft. and 3.0 cu. ft. cavities. That means you can have a pumpkin pie on top and a roast on the bottom with no mixing of aromas.
Here are two fun, if messy, facts: Thanksgiving in the U.S. will result in 300 million wine and gravy spills, and 15 million crumbs5. Your clean-up detail won’t be nearly that extensive but the post-dinner wrap-up is no one’s favorite job. Make Your House Work for the Holiday’s Cleaning section takes the bore out of the chore with cleaning tips from Better Homes & Gardens6; a downloadable “How to Handle Holiday Stains Guide”; and smart ways to maximize space in your dishwasher.
From washing dishes to laundering tablecloths and linens, Samsung has the holiday clean-up covered. The Samsung Wi-Fi-enabled WF457 laundry pair enables consumers to start, stop and pause the machine from their smart phones, as well as receive cycle alerts – saving time and adding convenience. Samsung’s DMT800 dishwasher features adjustable racks so you can fit even the largest roasting pans in your dishwasher.

SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
