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.

              Very convenient freezer drawers. I like the idea that I have 2 major sections and I know exactly what's in the Freezer. Everything lasts longer in this refrigerator. I've had it for a year now. I will never go back!

                  we are very satisfied with this refrigerator as it fits our personal needs very well. The twin freezer spaces helps to get at items more easily. Shelf space is fine. Our only criticism would be that the icemaker sometimes spews ice all over the floor. It can be "highly sensitive" to a request for ice.

                        We have had this fridge for a short time but love what it has to offer so far. It has many features that make our lives easier. One of my favorite features is the large area for water. Not many fridge's have the option to sit a large bottle on the tray without having to hold on an angle. One thing I wish it had was more shelves that folded in for taller items. Also door shelves can't really hold tall items. So over all this was a great purchase!!

                            We purchased this fridge at the end of December and have been very happy with it since. We especially like the fact that you can empty the ice maker and turn it off if you are away so that the ice maker does not become jammed with stale ice.

                                        We have had this fridge for almost 4 months. Nice amount of space, and does a good job maintaining temperature. Only con is you must be sure the doors are fully closed. Went on vacation and apparently left the doors slightly open. Not good. Water dispenser gives out slightly cool water, would be nice if it was colder. Does drip some after dispensing, but not a huge mess. Ice fragments make a worse mess after dispensing.

                                            I have only had this refrigerator for a few weeks but I am very happy with the looks and all the features it has. The only complaint I would have so far is the water we get from it is not very cold.
