LG 20.5 Cu. Ft. Capacity Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator - LMX21981SS

Introducing the first ice and water dispensing 4-Door French Door refrigerator, exclusively from LG. The two freezer drawers provide the ultimate in convenient organization and easy access. With the tallest water dispenser available, you can fill larger containers with filtered water. The interior of the refrigerator adds to the already sophisticated exterior styling – with recessed LED lighting, low profile shelving and integrated crisper and deli storage.

Key Features:

  • 20.5 Cu.Ft. Total Capacity
  • Cabinet Depth
    Designed to match the depth of your kitchen cabinets, so it’ll fit right in!
  • Double Freezer Drawer
    Two drawers provide the ultimate in convenient organization and easy access. The upper EveryDay Freezer drawer provides easy access to those frozen foods you reach for most. The lower drawer is a separate freezer compartment that lets you store larger items and is great for longer-term storage.
  • Tall Ice & Water Dispensing Center
    The dispenser is nearly 12" tall, making it the industry’s tallest water dispenser. Add to that an easy access water tap, slide out pitcher rest, and dual activation and you have a Tall Ice & Water Dispensing Center that makes it easy to fill all shapes and sizes of containers with the filtered ice and water you love.
  • Sophisticated Design, Inside & Out
    Only with LG’s exclusive styling package will you get contoured doors, hidden hinges, and other features that present a sophisticated and refined look. The interior of the refrigerator adds to this look with recessed LED lighting, low profile shelving and an integrated crisper and deli storage center.
  • Uncluttered Interior
    Only LG gives you an uncluttered interior with exclusive features such as SpacePlus™ which relocates the ice system to the door, and recessed LED lighting. Now you can use the entire top shelf without the obstructions you’ll find on other ice and water dispensing refrigerators.
  • 4 Compartment Crisper System
    Our unique design arranges the storage drawers to give you more versatility for organizing your foods and beverages. This refrigerator comes with a full width, temperature controlled Chef’s Pantry™ drawer, twin humidity-controlled crispers, and a bonus drawer that is perfect for beverage cans.
  • More sizes to meet your needs

The poorest part of the design of the double drawer models is the 'bar' between upper & lower drawers. This effectively 'blocks off' and renders UNUSABLE a portion of the (already limited) freezer space. IF the same seals were used horizontally here, as are used vertically between the upper doors, then this bar would not be needed and the product would be much better. Also, the slides on the drawers tend to easily become catywampus (that's a technical term..), causing one side or the other of the drawer to not-quite-close -- resulting in frost-up of that end of the drawer and (I'm sure) lots of excess energy use. Drawer must be fully extended, and 'snapped' back into alignment to fix this - and only until the next time it happens. Although you think one would 'get used' to doing this correctly, it seems to be happening MORE the longer we own the product... Very unhappy.

        Best Uses

          It was a perfect fit for my kitchen. Very sharp looking on the outside and roomy on the inside. Very quiet. The only improvements I would suggest is to do something about the way the weight of the door with the ice maker causes it to shut quickly and hard, rattling the items in the door. All features work beautifully. I wanted the door-in-door, but not available in the counter depth which is what I needed for this kitchen.

                  This is a good refrigerator for the price. My husband and I no longer needed a large refrigerator. This one is perfect for us. The temperature in the fridge remains consistent. My only complaint is that there is really not a easy way to configure the shelves for tall items like milk, which I have to place in the door.

                      We purchased this refrigerator to replace a built in model and needed a unit that could fit exactly into a limited space. This model has all of the bangs and whistles and is well designed to optimize available freezer and refrigerator space given a limited volume with which to work. The drawers in the freezer and the door within a door of the refrigerator are particularly nice features.

                          My wife wanted the cabinet depth refrigerator for space considerations in our kitchen. The box is well designed, with easy access to the drawers and the shelves have been very adaptable to our needs. I would buy this unit all over again.

                              We bought a new house that was filled with the LG Studio Series (dishwasher, electric cook-top, refrigerator, and built-in oven). The appliances are barely a year old, the dishwasher leaves the dishes dirt and makes a terrible noise when starting, the ice-maker has stopped working completely (in addition to the ridiculous design). I will never buy another LG product again!! Had GE in my previous house and never had issues.

                                  We needed a great quality and counter depth fridge that would fit through our narrow kitchen door. Too, being in a wheelchair I needed to easily reach the contents in the rear of the fridge. Successful on both counts! Three months and all systems working great.

                                      OK, so it's a refrigerator. I was hoping I'd like it but didn't expect anything out of the ordinary. I was wrong. This refrigerator is truly excellent. It's designed well, built well, and works well. Quiet, keeps our food longer than our previous refrigerator, love the door in a door, deli tray is perfect. Really....it's well beyond our expectations. My wife and I are really pleased with it and would highly recommend this refrigerator.
