LG thought out of the box on this one!

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 Out of date things are more easily spotted and discarded.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

Great counter depth option
By Style and design.
We were worried about losing storage space inside the refrigerator by buying a counter depth, but when our old fridge died, we were left with the option of going larger and invading even more of our kitchen or going with the more streamlined counter depth. So happy we did the counter depth. The design of this fridge is so well thought out that we really don't have any storage issues. There is plenty of flexible space. Really happy with the easy of the ice maker and water dispenser feature. Love that it does not take up any space besides one of the doors like some other brands do. Great product.
great styling and features
from Thiensville, WI 53092, USA
We needed a counter depth fridge and really didn't want an external water feature. Why waste already limited fridge space with that? But we succumbed since LG has no counter-depth w/o it. And we are enjoying the convenience of the ice and very cold water. Love the space saving shelf,LED lighting, a must for my husband, and the freezer organization. All around very pleased with our purchase after a very bad experience with another top brand.. The cost was high though, but maybe you get what you pay for.
One Significant Flaw
from New York
W generally like our LG refrigerator. But the annoying feature is that 9 times out of 10, we get a warning beep because the doors have not remained shut. We shouldn't have to hang around a couple of seconds to make sure the doors are closed. Need to improve on the self-closing / sealing feature.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
perfect fit for my kitchen
from Ocean Springs, ms
I love the look and quietness of this refrigerator. The french door design and the lighting are the two features I like the most. The one negative is the ice maker capacity. If you are having friends over you will run out of ice. I've only had the refrigerator for 4 weeks, and so far I have not had any problems with any quality issues.

This is a very quiet and efficient appliance in our family room which is right next to the open kitchen.
Love the counter depth!
from Springfield, VA, USA
We have a small kitchen, and this refrigerator solved so many problems for! Super quiet operation and easy to see all the contents. Love, love, love the ice maker and water dispenser.
Keeps Food Fresh and Organized
from Raleigh, NC
Wonderful refrigerator that keeps our food fresh and organized. Our only complaint has been the occasional noise that the compressor makes...very loud popping noises when the refrigerator is working hard to keep cool. It is quieter than the 15-year old refrigerator it replaced, but not as quiet as we would like as we live in a small home.
great features and quality
from Columbia, MO, USA
This refrigerator was purchased to replace a new different brand that had design flaws. We remodeled and was obligated to have a counter depth. This refrigerator is roomy. Really like the sliding shelf for the milk or other tall items that cannot go into the door. Also the ice maker is quiet, produces more ice than we use consistently and has the container in the freezer designed to save ice for increased usage. We had to have the shoot for the ice adjusted after the fridge was installed otherwise it has worked perfectly.
French doors work great in small kitchen
from San Diego
We researched many different brands but liked the LG best. It fits in a tight space just clearing an overhead cabinet, and the counter depth french doors take less space opening into a passageway. I love the bright lighting and the refrigerator section at eye level. The freezer is bigger than our old one and the drawers make food storage more organized. I love it and wonder now why we waited so long to replace our old one.
