A big, boxy icebox

The LMXS30786S is about as big as fridges get, so don't expect it to fit very well into cramped kitchens.

A trio of drawers

You'll find three drawers below the shelves for your fruits, veggies, meats and cheeses. They look great, with fancy, diamond-shaped patterns at the bottom -- but they don't offer humidity controls, which is a bit of an odd oversight.

EasyReach bins

In front of the drawers sit two "EasyReach" bins at the very front of the fridge. Just slide the tempered glass back to expose neat little compartments for freshly chopped veggies, grated cheese or anything else you'll want quick access to on Taco Tuesday.

A slimmer ice maker

The ice maker is located inside of the left door, and features a slimmed-down design, which gives you more room in the in-door shelves.

The trade-off

The rub is that it doesn't produce quite as much ice as the average French door fridge.

Minute-by-minute

Here are the minute-by-minute results from that same test. Even with the warm temperatures in the right door, things are fairly tight region-to-region. It's not a bad result by any stretch.

Dialing it down

We tested again, but this time, we dialed the fridge down to the 33-degree setting. Naturally, things got colder.

A tighter graph

Things got tighter, too. That overlapping jumble of lines is a good result -- it means that the temperature didn't vary all that much from one part of the fridge to another.

Freezer performance

As for the freezer, it did a very solid job, holding steady at the target temperature of 0 degrees F. The main body of the freezer (the blue line) even averages out to a perfect bullseye of 0.0 degrees. And don't worry about those spikes -- those are our regularly scheduled door openings, a controlled part of the test. As you can see, they never threw the freezer out of rhythm.
