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 Out of date things are more easily spotted and discarded.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

Love the size and convenience of finding things

Comments about LG Stainless Steel French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:
I love the lighting inside. Easy to locate items on shelves. Freezer has lots of room. Need to be sure the freezer drawer is closed because frost will form.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It will do for now
from Jamaica, Queens, NY, USA
This model replaced a 28 year old ge side by side 26.7 cu ft. I had a lot of room in the ge and back in the 80s when I purchased it, it was a counter depth. I decided on the lg because they were the only brand that made the largest. I have not had any problems though it was a tight squeeze in the freezer coming from my old side by side. The icemaker keeps up even though I am not crazy about the size of the cubes. The fridge area is just okay. It will take some getting use to. I hope in the next 2 years someone will make a counter depth like they did in the 80s which had more room.
Icemaker is terrible
from Santa Fe
After happily purchasing a LG clothes washer, LG clothes dryer, and LG dishwasher, I bought this expensive counter depth beautiful stainless refrigerator. The icemaker capacity is too small and the ice is constantly stuck up in the machine and does not perform as intended. So we have to purchase ice which is so inconvenient. I will say that the layout of the freezer is very nice. The depth of the refrigerator door shelves is narrow and many jars for condiments will not fit. This model needs to go back to the drawing board.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Quit in 3 weeks.
from Modesto, CA
Had problems after only 3 weeks. refrigerator went into deep defrost cycle, completely defrosted everything in the freezer. Don't know if it will happen again.
Great freezer layout. Rest just ok.
from Flowery Branch, GA, USA
My old refrigerator broke down and was in a bind to replace it quickly. We need a counter depth fridge and I am always disappointed that my options are so limited and I pay way more for a smaller fridge. So with my limited choices I am satisfied with this fridge. I really like the freezer layout. I was worried that I would be digging the drawers and having the bottom freezer, but I have been pleasantly surprised with the layout. A drawer and some good dividers have made this my favorite part of this unit. I also really like the ice maker. It makes smaller ice cubes and is hidden nicely on my door. I don't like that the water dispenser stupid when the opposite door is opened. The racks on the doors are very narrow and difficult to fill. The produce drawers are very small. Wish there were two big drawers instead of the three smaller drawers.

Roomy and Quiet
from Philadelphia, pa
I was pleased with the easy access to items because of the counter length. Also liked the three storage area in freezer. Only issue is the bin drawers should be 2 instead of 3, and match the width of refrigerator doors
from Breckenridge CO
Refrig looks fab in our kitchen. My husband can't believe he is so excited about a refrigerator. There is so much room, and everything is easily accessible.

Compressor out in 15 months
By Diappointed Atlanta
from Atlanta, GA, USA
Very disappointed in the product. Have been without a fridge for 1 week because the compressor went out. Poor workmanship in my opinion.
Beautiful look to our new kitchen
from Newport Beach, CA, USA
Beautiful addition to our new kitchen. The counter depth is worth the additional price. Looks so sharp against our white cabinets. Fridge is very functional. The only con is that the water/ice dispenser doesn't work when you open the right side door. Otherwise, its the best fridge around!
