With 28 cubic feet, you get that extra space. You also get two ice makers, to keep plenty of ice on hand to serve the whole party. Plus, our Smart Cooling technology helps keep food fresher longer.

Store more
Stock-up and store everything you need. With a cavernous 28 cubic feet of space, this LG French Door refrigerator gives you ample space for all of your family’s favorite foods and keeps them conveniently organized and within reach.

More shelf space
Ice makers are great, but not if it means you can't fit all of your food in the fridge. The Slim SpacePlus™ Ice System provides more shelf space and allows even more space for door bins.

Fresher is better
Smart Cooling system is designed to maintain superior conditions within the refrigerator. The Linear Compressor reacts quickly to temperature fluctuations and helps keep your food fresher, longer. Meanwhile, strategically-placed vents in every section surround your food with cool air no matter where you put it.

Peace of Mind
When you buy a refrigerator, you don't want to worry that it won't last. Because the Linear Compressor motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty.

Plenty of Ice
With Slim SpacePlus ice maker in the door and another ice maker in the freezer, LG gives you enough ice to fill the cooler and serve the whole party.

From pitchers to pint glasses, finally an ice & water dispenser that can accommodate just about any container. The water and ice dispenser in this LG refrigerator is one of the tallest around, measuring in at an ultra-accommodating 12.6 inches

We went to several stores to ``get our hands`` on the refrigerators and see them in person. We decided on this because of the dual ice maker, the look & the larger interior space. Very happy with our purchase the refrigerator works flawlessly

Pros: cools fast, tall water dispenser, dual ice maker, smart diagnosis system

Cons: none yet
