It's 24 inches wide and only offers 11 cubic feet of storage space, but the LG LTNC11121V is still a full-size refrigerator -- it's just designed to fit into tight spaces.

Open up

The LTNC11121V is a classic top freezer model with the fridge on the bottom and the freezer up top.

Crisper bin

The fridge is too narrow for two crisper bins, so you only get one. It's actually fairly sizable, though.

Surprising storage

I was honestly surprised that I was able to fit so many of our test groceries inside. The only things I couldn't squeeze in were those two 12-packs -- the fridge wasn't quite deep enough. There was room for two gallon milk jugs on the top shelf, though, and enough space for a pair of 2-liters and a few other beverages in that bottom door shelf.

Up top

The freezer is pretty basic, with just a couple of cubic feet's worth of storage space.

Manual icemaker

There is an interesting ice maker, though. It slides from left to right beneath the shelf, and features two small-sized ice cube trays. Fill each one with water, then twist to dump the cubes into the bin below once everything's frozen.

Cooling power

The LTNC11121V had seven-setting temperature dial. We started out by testing it at the default setting of 4, right in the middle. The door shelves ran warm, along with that crisper bin, but the body of the fridge came in right on the money, with the top shelf hitting a perfect bullseye at 37 degrees F.

Coldest setting

Next, we cranked that dial up to 7, which is the refrigerator's coldest setting (typically 33 degrees with LG fridges). Again, the door shelves and crisper bin ran warmer than the body of the fridge, and again, the body of the fridge performed very well, with that top shelf coming out the coldest.

The LTNC11121V sells for $700, making it the least expensive fridge that LG sells. With steady performance, a good-looking design and slightly better storage than you might expect, it isn't a bad pick at all if you need a backup fridge for a back room, or if your kitchen is super cramped.
