You're looking at $3,600 worth of fridge. Go ahead and take a few moments to "ooh" and "aah," and then click through to take a closer look. I'll wait.

Along with an abundance of shiny stainless steel (and an ice and water dispenser), you'll find a set of touch controls on the front of the fridge.

The true abundance lies inside, though. That's over 20 cubic feet of storage space -- or 31.7 cubic feet once you factor the freezer in. That's about as much as you'll find from a traditional French door model like this one.

The "Glide N' Serve" drawer was tall and deep enough to fit this party platter -- a better result than we've seen with similar drawers in competing models.

Changing the Glide N' Serve settings didn't actually change anything, though. No matter which setting we tested ("Meat," "Deli" or "Produce") the temperature stayed roughly the same.

The kid shelf at the bottom of the right door is actually big enough to merit use. Similar shelves in other fridges are too skinny and awkward to use.

The LFXS32726S performed like a champ in our cooling tests. The temperatures were accurate and generally consistent at the default 37-degree setting.

Here's the minute-by-minute graph of that same test. It's a good graph. With a lousy fridge, those lines will be much more spread out, indicating uneven performance.

Here's another heat map, this time with the fridge dialed down to its minimum setting (33 degrees F). The temperatures are a bit less accurate, coming in a degree or two on the warm side. That's pretty common across brands -- fridge makers err on the warm side at coldest settings to help keep your milk from freezing.
