LG Refrigerators

Living Up to Their "Life's Good" Slogan

The line of LG Refrigerators has quite a history. Like GE, LG is a huge conglomerate corporation. Founded in 1947 in South Korea, it was originally called Lucky-Goldstar. You might remember a long list of home electronics with the Goldstar name such as clock radios and appliances.

The LG Refrigerator is actually made by the LG Electronics division of the LG Group as are all of the major appliances. The Goldstar appliances were originally seen as a discounted alternative to some of the major American brands like Whirlpool, Kenmore and Maytag. LG is still considered a "discount" brand in some people's eyes. But LG products have become more attractive and reliable, while remaining relatively affordable.

The Life's Good slogan is reminiscent of GE's old Bringing Good Things to Life (which they dropped a few years back in favor of "GE: Imagination at Work"). LG has gone a long way toward making a great name for the South Korean made product lines.

There were many that we liked due to the numerous features and excess capacity not usually seen in refrigerators in this price range. LG has only recently chosen to make a LG Top Freezer refrigerators refrigerator model here in the U.S. They currently only have only few models with an interior capacity of 22 cubic feet. The biggest difference seemed to be a white or stainless steel finish.

Additionally, we liked LG's commitment to customer satisfaction and long term brand loyalty. Because LG has made numerous innovations in a number of other areas, they are able to apply that knowledge to the appliance realm.

The LG Refrigerator: Unique Features

LG has a number of unique features that they bring to each of their product lines and their major appliances are no different. Here are just a few of the features you may want to make sure is on your LG Refrigerator:

  • The Multi-Air Flow System: You think this would be an obvious feature for most manufacturers, but it's truly not. LG has vents on every refrigerator shelf which prevents their refrigerators from having "hot spots" as it evenly disperses the cool air throughout all parts of the fridge. Constant temperature means longer lasting food and better freshness.

  • Glide N’ Serve™ Drawer: This is a full size fruit and vegetable drawer allows for easily accessible ways to get to your fruits and vegetables.

  • SpacePlus™ Ice System in-door: Finally a way to have an ice maker in a freezer that doesn't take up the valuable storage space we all need. The only thing to note is that it doesn't hold a huge amount of ice. The dispenser can come in regular or extra tall for filling large glasses or pitchers.

  • Ice Plus™ Accelerated Freezing Function : This allows you to make ice at a much faster rate and in turn should make the less amount of ice in your freezer at any one time not an issue.

  • LoDecibel™ Operation: If you are looking for a quiet refrigerator make sure you purchase one with this as an added option as not all LG fridges come with this.

  • Door Alarm: While a door alarm may not seem like a big deal, if you have children (or a forgetful spouse) you know just how much money it can save you in spoiled food. (If this is really a problem for you, some also come with a child lock.)

  • LED Interior Lights: If you haven't seen what these look like in person then it's really worth a trip to your local appliance store. The light is very crisp and clean, adding a brightness that a typical bulb doesn't. Not to mention the fact that they need to be changed much less frequently.

  • 10 Year Warranty on the Linear Compressors: This type of compressor is not in all models but if you've ever had to replace a compressor you know that it can be quite costly.

(If you are looking for LG customer reviews then scroll down to the bottom of this page for reviews written by actual LG customers. Just remember someone who loves their refrigerator tends not to be looking for a new one and in turn isn't writing a review about it.)

Energy Efficient

A vast majority of these refrigerators are Energy Star Certified. Which means that they run on 15% less energy than allowed by Federal Standards. In this time of environmental concern, we always recommend you consider the Energy Star models over those models that might consume more energy.

The money you save in energy savings and potential utility rebates might even help you pay for the fridge in the first place!

The LG Refrigerator line has some of the most affordable refrigerators yet they are typically loaded with innovative features that are less common in more well known brands such as GE, Amana and Whirlpool.

We've reviewed a number of these refrigerators and have provided our recommendations at the bottom of this page. If you've recently purchased a LG refrigerator, scroll down and give us your thoughts on your LG fridge!
