Unmatched Capacity Plus the Most Shelf Space Available
Most standard 36-inch-width refrigerators offer about 25 cubic feet of capacity; however, LG’s new refrigerator offers a spacious 31 cubic feet – the largest capacity in its class and approximately six more cubic feet of space than standard models for this footprint. This means more room for delicious snacks, favorite drinks and fresh produce. This refrigerator even offers enough space to accommodate up to 51 gallons of milk in the fresh foods compartment alone.
In addition to its super large capacity, LG’s new French-door model also offers consumers the most shelf space available in a 36-inch refrigerator footprint. To accomplish this, the refrigerator includes LG’s innovative Slim Space Plus™ feature that helps cut clutter. Unlike bulky icemakers that sacrifice shelf space, Slim Space Plus relocates the ice system inside the door, making way for usable door bins and a top shelf entirely free of obstructions. With the slimmest and most effective insulation LG has ever made (23 percent thinner than previous LG models), users can enjoy expanded refrigerator capacity without sacrificing energy efficiency. It fits in the same space of any 36-inch model but holds a great deal more.
Fresher is Better
LG’s patented Linear Compressor lies at the heart of Smart Cooling Plus technology, developed to drive the system efficiently from its core. With fewer moving parts and thereby less friction, the Linear Compressor regulates temperature with less noise and far less energy use, overachieving ENERGY STAR standards by 20 percent. LG confidently backs this feature with a 10-year warranty.
Convenience is key for an appliance that is such an integral part of any kitchen. That’s why LG built in a multitude of features that allow for greater convenience easier access and excellent organization and storage options. The refrigerator’s versatile Four Compartment Crisper System provides easy access and more ways to organize and store fruits, vegetables and beverages in one of two humidity-controlled crisper drawers designed to help keep produce at optimal temperature levels, helping to extend shelf life. A full-width Glide-N-Serve™ drawer that fully extends and a bonus drawer make party preparations easy.
Also included is LG’s nearly 13-inch Extra-Tall Ice & Water Dispensing System, a super-accommodating dispenser built to handle anything from pitchers to pints. Tall or wide, short or oddly-shaped, the extra space allows easy filling of nearly any glass.
LG adds convenience to the freezer with the Smart Pull Handle, a simple, intuitive feature that makes accessing the bottom freezer easier: a quick lift of the handle gives effortless access to the freezer. Once inside, the 3-Tier Shelf Organization system keeps food organized and accessible. Food can be prioritized so that it can be found easily and quickly.
Going beyond convenience for everyday use, this model incorporates a smart "self-diagnosing" technology to help save consumers time and money in the unlikely event of a problem. Called SmartDiagnosis™, this LG-developed innovation helps customer service representatives quickly and efficiently troubleshoot mechanical issues over the phone, limiting costly, inconvenient service calls and in-home visits.
All the convenient space and smart features are housed in a sophisticated, stylish design. LG has hidden the hinges and added contoured doors, providing a refrigerator that isn’t only functional but sleek and modern inside and out. LG’s enhanced styling package, including interior LED lighting along the sides and ceiling, provides the added sense of style LG appliances are known for.
