InstaView™ Door-in-Door® refrigerators have a sleek glass panel that allows you to see inside the easy access door without letting the cold air out. Simply knock twice on the glass to illuminate the contents within.

From making extra ice for tonight’s dinner party to getting smartphone notifications when the door is left open, use the LG SmartThinQ® app to control key features and get important notifications from any-where. It even works with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can operate smart features with your voice.

LG counter-depth refrigerators align with countertops and cabinetry for a uniform profile, creating a sophisticated built-in look without the high-end price tag.

Smart Cooling® Plus technology is designed to maintain superior conditions within the refrigerator. The Linear Compressor and Dual Evaporators react quickly to humidity and temperature levels and help keep your food fresher, longer. Strategically-placed vents in every section help surround your food with cool, fresh air.

This ENERGY STAR® certified LG refrigerator exceeds new 2016 federal energy standards to positively impact your energy bill and your energy consumption.

Lot of features, but some features waste too much of space, which could be used to store a food. The shelf between the top drawer and the bottom freezer covers alot of the bottom when the freezer is opened and does not push back, making it hard to see what is in the back of the freezer. The door is not designed to store a wine bottles, it doesn’t fit. Love the middle drawer, super handy for snacks, deli meats, butter, soda, the list goes on. Really like how bright it is, you can see everything and you can fit a good amount of food/containers in it. With two fridge doors, it’s very easy to find things due to the well lit interior and shallow shelves. The shelves on the inside of the doors really help to keep things organised and easily accessible. The two top drawers are a huge plus for organizing things. The two bins in the bottom drawer help to keep things separated and organised. 

The middle deli drawer may not hold open and may automatically retracts. The water filler may be a little slow. Ice maker recovery time may be up to few days. Changing an air filter may be difficult. You need to open both doors to access the frig server drawer or the middle veggie drawer. The back of the window door opens by pushing on it and it often opens on its own when you open the window door. You may need to knock too hard to activate the light on the glass door. Construction of the vegetable/fruit bin. The three bins are housed in a separate compartment inside the main body of the refrigerator. In order to clean below the drawers the entire compartment, meaning all three drawers plus the compartment itself, must be removed, this may be an issue if something leaks out from above and seeps behind the bins. 

Loud noise from compressor or fan. Vibrations.

Wi-fi connection is a great feature, but it may be a challenge to connect the wi-fi.
