Meet the "Hodor" of refrigerators
Let me ask you a question.
How much do you think this fridge behind me costs?
Pretty basic looking unit, stainless steel, nothing tinted, no door to door, no smart features, nothing too special.
Well if you guessed $3,600, you're exactly right.
It's a very expensive fridge from LG.
The reason it costs so much is it's one of the biggest French door fridges you can get, 32 cubic feet inside of it.
But like I said, nothing that much is special about this fridge.
Nothing distinctive, nothing new or unique.
If it's gonna cost so much, and it doesn't have anything special about it Just sort of has to pitch a perfect game.
The interesting this is, fridge stored it best.
Take a look at this heat map.
It shows the average temperatures in each region of the fridge during a 72 hours test that we ran.
And if you look, they're all very very close, very close to that 37 degree target.
It speaks to how consistent a performer this thing is.
It also takes great advantage of all the space That it offers, with a lot of neat drawers that hold things, like your kids' snacks.
The deli drawer that pulls out is a very nice thing to have.
It's nice and tall.
It will fit bulky items down there.
A lot of other drawers like it aren't quite as tall.
You can't put as much in them.
So all in all, this fridge is great with performing
And with its interior design, it just looks a little boring on the outside.
I don't think I'd buy it at $3600.
I'd want something more distinctive.
But if you catch it on sale, maybe go for it.
