Excellent 2nd Fridge
from Morton Grove, IL
About Me Casual Cook
Comments about LG LRBP1031 White Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:
Excellent 2nd fridge for our kitchen. The footprint size is great and sits flush with our counter. Love the glass shevles and bottom freezer layout with drawers. The plug extends from the rear lower right corner (when facing the fridge) and did not pose any issues. The design is simple yet elegant without any door handles.As most comment, expect to remove a shelf. Still, two shelves were ample: water bottles and large milk/juice jugs on top, 28 long neck beers on bottom. In the door: champaigne/wine bottles along the bottom and soda cans in the pockets (recommend reversing their positions to prevent cans from falling out). The deli drawers are not the smoothest but acceptable.Lastly, the freezer drawers fit a good amount: quarts of ice cream, steaks, chicken breasts, and other boxed products. We love using the ice tray drawer for yogurt sticks.Had the fridge for almost three months with no issues so far (knock on wood).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect for a small kitchen
from Oak Park, IL
The tall and narrowness of this fridge balances the space in my rather small kitchen. I live by myself and the fridge has more that enough room for any food that I may have. It's proportioned beautifully. And I'm enjoying the fridge on top, freezer on the bottom style. It feels very European to me.

Perfect for a small kitchen!
By happy Grandma
from Modesto, CA
We shopped for a counter depth refrigerator and found this model. It was the right dimentions and the right price! We love it! It is just the perfect size and after our new kitchen remodel, we now can see the nice counters better than ever before since the smaller size doesn't block the view. Your refrigerator should never be the focal point of your kitchen. It is small and is only 10 cubic feet, yet we find that we don't keep as many leftovers anymore because of the limited space and this is a good thing for our family. We are very happy with our purchase!
Great Apartment Fridge
By Very Thorough
from SF Bay Area, CA
About Me Avid Cook
Bought this for my apartment kitchen which won't accommodate a fridge deeper than 28". It's difficult to find other fridges to meet this requirement, and when I do, they are often less than 5 feet tall! I like that this one has good volume for such a small footprint.The fridge is not huge, but plenty for two non-hoarders. The space is organized very well, with drawers in the freezer, and I love having the fridge on top! As others have said, if you need to store large (1-gal) bottles, you'll need to remove a shelf, but 1/2 gal, or even 96-oz juice bottles, fit fine in the door.Runs very quietly, and chills quickly. Used the quick freeze option to freeze ice cubes in under an hour.Very happy so far. Rated perfect because I think this is the absolute best option anywhere near this price range. I could probably find better (for my needs), but it would cost a lot more.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was very quick especially considering the busy time of year. Customer service was great about meeting competitor's prices and asnswering questions during delivery period.

Great for Small Apartment or Condo
By Lower East Sider
from Milwaukee, WI
This refrigerator is ideal for small 1960's apartments and condos, especially if they have an adjoining living room and kitchenette. It contains just enough room for one and perhaps two people. I like how none of my food gets "lost" in the back, and how the refrigerator compartment is on top.While not silent, it does not make that much noise, and the noise it makes is reasonably well muted. My old refrigerator was considerably noisier. This was a major consideration as I wanted some piece and quiet in my small condo. I also like how it does not protrude beyond my stove and cabinets (counter depth). This makes my kitchenette seem more spacious. And, it was one of the few small refrigerators that fit under the cabinets located above the refrigerator area in my kitchenette (approximately 68 inches above the floor). The other slim and tall refrigerators that I considered purchasing would have forced me to remove these cabinets.Certain features, such as the crisper drawers are perhaps not as well made as those of my previous refrigerator. But it does have glass shelves which help it look a little more expensive than the most basic small refrigerators.
I had almost given up on purchasing my LG refrigerator until I found ABT. My ABT salesperson, David Strauss, special ordered the refrigerator and followed through until the product was delivered. It took a couple months, but this was not unreasonable as my LG refrigerator was a hard to find model that was not typically stocked by LG retailers in the Midwest. I had previously tried to special order my refrigerator from two Milwaukee area LG retailers and also from another Chicago area LG retailer, but without success. ABT went the extra mile and got me the product that the others couldn't.ABT's delivery people were first rate. They called ahead about two hours in advance to confirm they were coming.My high rise condo building has certain delivery rules, such as mandating that all deliveries come in through the garage and not the front lobby. The ABT delivery personnel followed my directions completely and did not argue or try to force their way into the lobby like some delivery people have done in the past.I also liked how there was no extra charge for delivery in Milwaukee, about 80 miles from ABT's north suburban Chicago location.Based on my experience, I will have no hesitation purchasing future products from ABT.
What a relief!
from Olympia, WA
I've had this only a few weeks, so can't speak to durability yet, but I'm SO pleased with it on the basis of how quiet it is, smaller footprint in my kitchen, and less wasted space in the fridge that I'm paying to refrigerate.
AWESOME refrigerator!!! buy it.
from Evanston, Illinois
I LOVE this refrigerator. It's small, but very space efficient, no wasted space. Looks great (very european look), and it's very tall and high. It's only 24 inches wide, AND it does not stick out beyond the countertop and cabinets. Very cool. It's great because the refrigerator is on the top (when will the other makers get this??), and the freezer on the bottom has 3 drawers, easy to access. Again, it's not big...but it's the best refrigerator I've ever had!
Great guys from ABT, as always. Nice, friendly, and they aim to please.
Small Euro Style Refrigerator!
By evanston greenie
from evanston illinois
This is a wonderful refrigerator for a small space or for one or two people. The refrigerator portion is on the top and it is easy to see what is in there. The space is small and the lighting is good. The space in the door is well organized. All the shelves can be moved up and down to fit taller items.The freezer is on the bottom, three drawers. You can't really misplace food in here. There is a separate drawer for the ice cube trays. This drawer is also a place for quick freezing food. You can't put anything very thick in the quick freezer drawer a few inches thick at best. You will not quick freeze a whole chicken but you can quick freeze a package of chicken parts.The plastic in the fruit and vegetable drawers feels flimsy but I am sure it will be perfect for the purpose.Again this is an appliance for one or 2 people any more in your household and you will not be happy.

Perfect for smaller kitchens
from Edgewater, IL
I LOVE this refrigerator! It is perfect for smaller kitchens and single households. It is only 24 inches wide and is counter-depth, so it fits in places a regular size refrigerator won't. I actually replaced a wall oven and some cabinets with this refrigerator, its footprint is THAT small. The freezer is on the bottom so all the fresh food is at eye level. No more stooping to find anything! The freezer has three drawers so it doesn't lose all its cold air when I take out one item. The refrigerator and freezer have separate temperature controls (as well as a "quick" freeze button), which lets me set the refrigerator to a lower energy setting than the freezer. It is quiet. An alarm lets me know the door is ajar. Though only 10 cubic feet, it holds a week's worth of groceries for a single guy (including beer) quite easily. The only complaint I have is that it did not come with a butter dish. This is perfect for anyone who wants a no-nonsense, dependable refrigerator without all the expensive bells and whistles.

the best compact refrigerator/freezer
from Berkeley Springs, WV
About Me Vegetarian
This is our primary refrigerator. It has a very small capacity, 10 cf overall, which is precisely what we were looking for. It is really the only thing out there with this size and with the bottom freezer configuration, and LG did a great job with it. Since the freezer is on the bottom, and it's counter depth, nothing in this fridge gets "lost". I suspect that this will be used in offices mostly, as most Americans think bigger is better, in terms of the fridge, and most want an icemaker, which this doesn't have. But for couples, singles, apartment dwellers, and anyone who wants something compact, this unit would be perfect. I am 100% happy with our purchase.The freezer is unusually configured with 3 drawers and a pull-out shallow drawer for ice cube trays. I think this was a brilliant idea; deep stacks of frozen food tend to not get used and are wasted. This way, you can keep the ice cream and treats in one place, veggies in another, etc. Ideally, we could have used a bit less freezer space, and more room for fresh food.For its size, this unit is not energy efficient, but it still is very low cost to run. You can't do a lot with the shelves, but they work for us. Plus, if you MUST have multiple gallons or quarts of milk, juice, etc, you might want to go with something with more on-door storage. Large items, like watermelon will not fit. Again, it works for this two-person household. The price is great, the styling is nice, and we are extremely pleased with it.
We had some difficulty with the order initially, but it was all worked out, and I'm pleased with the customer service provided.
