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 Out of date things are more easily spotted and discarded.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. 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.

Love this refrigerator
from Alexandria, VA, USA
Comments about LG Stainless Steel French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

we remodeled our kitchen and purched lg products . we could not have purched a greater line
Best Refrigerator we have had
from Germantown, NY
Wonderful unit with plenty of storage . We were pleasantly surprised to find this French door unit that fit through our narrow house door. (32") . Family loves the ice maker and bright interior. The adjustable shelving and multiple freezer draws make finding items a breeze. We highly recommend this model
Very spacious, well-lit
This refrigerator replaced a side by side refrigerator. It gives us the width we were looking for in the chilled section, the ice maker takes up less room and the two sliding drawers in the freezer compartment, plus the roomy bottom bin, have taken away my reservation about a pull out freezer drawer. The ice seems to taste cleaner as well, possibly because the bin is smaller and the cubes get replaced more frequently.
from New Jersey
I love my new refrigerator! It has an amazing amount of storage space in both the refrigerator and the freezer. The separate compartments in each space make the contents so easy to find as well. After having a side by side for 10 years this refrigerator wins in all categories.
WHAT AN UPGRADE!
from Birmingham, AL, USA
This is our second counter depth refrigerator in our home (the previous was another manufacturer). It is so much larger inside, and the LED lights really light up the interior to see everywhere. The ice maker takes up very little space, and works very well and quietly. The door design is fascinating, as either of the doors can be opened and closed independent of the other. I highly recommend this refrigerator.
Huge bright interior
from Pompano Beach, FL, USA
We searched long and hard for the right refrigerator and were worried that this model would seem too huge in our 7x9 foot condo kitchen. But it fits fine. Best feature is the slim ice maker in the refrigerator part. Other brands had such bulky ice makers they seemed to take all the space. Love the bright, easy to clean, easy to find things in interior and the smudge resistant exterior. The long drawer at the bottom of the refrigerator is adjustable for produce, meat, and deli and I use it for various things. The freezer has a huge capacity. No complaints!
Very satisfied with this investment
By Bog Cat
from Barnstable County, MA, USA
The demise of our previous counter depth refrigerator necessitated some fast and furious research and shopping which led us to this LG model. Could not be happier with: exterior & interior design, capacity, visibility of contents, shelf flexibility, compact ice-maker, lighting. It suits our needs extremely well.
