The Samsung BabyCare washer is a hit in Korea, but will it translate to the U.S.?

Cloth diaper fans rejoice: Samsung has released a new washing machine that's custom made for cleaning up after babies.

The Samsung Baby Care debuted at the company's Atelier event in New York City, and it's unlike anything else on the market in the U.S.

At just 0.9 cubic feet, it's just big enough to clean diapers and baby clothes. Size-wise, it's the polar opposite of the world's largest washer, the Samsung WF56H9100AG.

The Baby Care washer sells for $599 in white, or $699 in onyx.

The washer can either be permanently attached to a water supply or hooked up to a sink, and it's designed to be a complement to a larger machine. On the Super Sanitize cycle, it's capable of reaching temperatures as high as 198ºF, and it can add up to seven rinse cycles to keep detergent from irritating delicate skin.
