The $1,500 LG LSXS26326S looks like a typical fridge with its stainless-steel finish and boxy exterior, but hidden within is a superior cooling element and plenty of room for groceries.

The LG LSXS26326S has 26.2 total cubic feet of space. 17 of which are in the fridge on the right, and the other 9.2 are for your frozen goods on the left.

The exterior, though pretty standard fare for refrigerators, still looks good. The handles curve slightly and the stainless steel looks sleek and professional.

I thought the controls looked a little dated, but they function well, and the nightlight under the ice dispenser is a nice touch.

The ice bin sits on the inside of the freezer door, so you don't lose any shelf space.

In the fridge, a butter bin tops off a few sizable door bins to help you manage your food storage.

Both the fridge and the freezer have drawers at the bottom.

You can rearrange the glass shelves of both by lifting them off the white plastic rails underneath.

Each shelf has a couple of positions where you can place it.

Between the big door bins and movable shelves, we were able to fit quite a few groceries into the LG LSXS26326S.

The curved handles help make the exterior less boxy, but the real appeal of the LG LSXS26326S is on the inside.

The LG LSXS26326S kept extremely accurate temperatures in both the fridge and the freezer, making it the top performing side-by-side fridge we've tested to date.
