Fridge up top

Like the name suggests, bottom freezers move the fridge up top for easier access. With this model, you get 16.4 cubic feet of storage space for fresh ingredients.

Glide N' Serve drawer

You'll also find a "Glide N' Serve" drawer beneath the crispers. It's roomy enough to store snacks and drinks, and slides smoothly in and out.

LED lighting

LED lights inside the fridge give it a clean, modern look.

Heat map

At the default, 37-degree setting, the LDCS24223S ran a little bit warm than we'd like, with hot spots above 40 degrees in the door shelves and crisper bin. The body of the fridge managed to stay below 40, but only just barely.

Coldest setting

Things look better when you dial the fridge down to its coldest setting of 33 degrees, but they're still a few degrees warmer than the target temperature. The coldest setting also consumes more energy.

Price point

The LG LDCS24223S retails for $1,600, with non-stainless-steel models in white and black costing $100 less. That's less expensive than LG's last version of the same fridge, but the performance also isn't quite as sharp.
