We inherited an old side by side in a house we recently bought. Not only did it not work well, it stuck way out into the room and ruined the sleek built in kitchen look we desired. This new counter depth LG fits snugly into the space, looking almost built in, and the shiny stainless finish is a very rich look. But beyond cosmetics, this is truly a new generation refrigerator. The interior is brilliantly designed and smartly utilizes every cubic inch wisely. The LED lighting is awesome. We were worried that this refrigerator would not be quite large enough, but after a month or so we realize that due to it's design it is more than adequate. Everything is sort of in reach and line of sight. Things don't get lost in the back anymore. Out of date things are more easily spotted and discarded. Everything has it's place. 2 gallon milk jugs fit perfectly in the door for instance. Part of a shelf retracts to accommodate taller items. A small rack on the underside of the right door accommodates soda cans. I didn't even know this was there until I read the manual. With the temp and humidity controls, I am convinced that things keep longer. The temps seem very even throughout. The bottom freezer is a world of it's own, with drawers on top of drawers of varying depth, there is a place for everything, even a giant frozen turkey or large pizza. Ice cream is at the perfect temp. A little rack for small items on the top inside of the drawer front is easy to get into and would otherwise be wasted space. Probably my biggest concern with this model was the ice maker. I love the ingenious thin design, placing the compact ice maker and bin snugly in the door, and not consuming valuable internal space like most refrigerators. And I love the smaller ice cubes that seem to work and look better in drinks. But we live in a desert climate where it gets very hot and we like to have an evening cocktail or three, sometimes out in the hot sun around the pool. So I worried that this unit could not pump out enough ice for us and we would need to buy ice regularly. But the ice maker recycles quickly. We have never even come close to running out of ice. There is also a button you can push to increase ice production when you think you will be needing a lot. And just for backup, the refrigerator comes with a sturdy plastic ice bin that fits like a glove into the middle freezer drawer. So, every once in awhile, I put a few glasses full of ice from the ice maker into the reserve bin. It's now full and ready to be used in an emergency. But, alas, we have yet to need to dip into it, even when entertaining a few friends. The water and ice dispenser on the front is different than most other refrigerators too. You can put tall things, like a pitcher, under the spigot. The ice dispenses flawlessly. The whole apparatus screams "quality and precision", including LED lighting. The water stream is precise and stops on a dime, as does the ice dispensing. Push button controls with LED digits are on the front allowing such things as setting temperature settings. About the only thing I would change is the 3 produce drawers. They work very well and keep meat and produce fresh, but 2 larger drawers would provide more flexibility. A bunch of celery will not fit, for instance, and must lay on the shelf above. By my calculations, this unit will be at least 20% more energy efficient than our old one, likely more considering that it is slightly smaller and uses the latest technology and insulation. Alarms alert you if a door is ajar or left open too long. The unit runs very quietly, and is barely noticeable. The water filter works well and appears sturdy and easy to remove. A light alerts you when to replace. And the air filter? Well I've never had a refrigerator with an air filter! What a concept. Although I have not used it and hope I never have to, if there is a problem with the refrigerator, you can call LG and hold the phone up to a little speaker above the door, press a button, and the refrigerator sends an encoded tone that conveys diagnostic information to the LG rep. This will tell them what might be wrong so that when a service person does arrive, they will know what they are dealing with. Is this out of the box design or what! All in all, this is a very futuristic and well designed unit. Cramming all this capacity and all these features into a much more shallow, counter depth box is a major accomplishment. And for all that engineering and design, you do pay a little more for this unit (thus my rating of 4 stars for value). But for us, it was worth it and it is a joy to interact with this fine piece of engineering on a daily basis.

1 Major Design Flaw
This fridge has everything going but one major design flaw. The doors pivot out instead of an inside pivot. Because of the outside pivot we cannot place our fridge flush with the cabinets....Read complete review
This fridge has everything going but one major design flaw. The doors pivot out instead of an inside pivot. Because of the outside pivot we cannot place our fridge flush with the cabinets. If we do not move the fridge forward there is not enough clearance for the doors to open without hitting the cabinet doors. Very disappointing since the whole reason we paid more money for a counter depth fridge was to have our fridge sit flush with the cabinets.

Reading the manual!
Comments about LG Stainless Steel French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:
Bought this two years ago and have had no problems. Works great and looks great too. I have been reading the manual recently after a kitchen renovation during which it sat in the dining room for several months -- it seems to have survived the ordeal just fine. The manual is very informative....from tips that help with cleaning, how to change the filters etc.....to how to get diagnostic help via cell phone. You can send signals to LG that may reveal what your problem is. I was impressed, did not try it as its New Year's Eve, but it sounds wonderful.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comment on this review
from Edmond, OK, United States
The refrigerator has many nice features, however, it is extremely loud when the compressor is running. Not only does the compressor make a good deal of noise, it vibrates the refrigerator thereby vibrating the glass contents inside. This creates additional noise to the point that I hate to be in the kitchen. We are slightly beyond warranty and have been told any repairs will be on us. I'm almost to the point of donating it to a charity and starting over with a different brand. I would NOT recommend this LG.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Best room in the house
from Los Angeles
This refrigerator is the best room in my house: Best organized and flexible, best lighting (LED), best water filter, best air conditioning, even an odor filter. I wish I could move in there! It's very quiet compared to other refrigerators I've had.
My only issue is the ice maker & finger prints
from Palm Springs, CA, USA

Love this refrigerator
from Alexandria, VA, USA
We were remodeling our kitchen and needed a counter depth refrigerator -- nearly all that we saw were much smaller than the 24.5 cf GE we had for 10 years and we were not happy about that. This model was not only bigger -- it was so smartly built -- with ice maker in the door instead of taking up room inside the unit -- and well thought-out areas for deli, fruits and vegetables. I never wanted a freezer that was below the refrigerator (I had been used to side-by-side) because I thought all the items would be buried on top of each others. But this model has three easy pull-out areas and even a rack inside the freeze door -- amazing. I love this refrigerator for it's smart design and size AND I highly recommend this and any LG product -- because we also purchased a glass top stove and dishwasher which we also love. Funny, the guys who were remodeling our kitchen suggested other brands, but when we did our own research and shopping, LG was what we chose all the way.
Very Complete Product
from Portland, OR, USA
Very happy with this product with one small issue. Looks good, is very quiet, extremely bright interior, great features and flexibility, and has wonderful capacity for a counter-depth appliance. In fact, the only (small) complaint that I have after owning it for three months is that it did not qualify for the EnergyStar rebate in Oregon. This unit may be EnergyStar qualified, but is not 30% more efficient than the standard, which is what is required for the rebate here. In fact, someone at EnergyStar told me on the phone that this unit may not qualify at all for new standards issued in the Fall of 2013. Expected more of LG.
High quality superior design
from Slidell, LA
We're exceptionally pleased with this recent LG purchase. The size fits our counter depth and the interior space provided is surprisingly expansive due to the design features. The smart cooling feature keeps food fresher longer, and the stainless steel exterior is very attractive and current.
