Impressive performance from this LG bottom freezer fridge
And C|net's Ryan Crist here with another refrigerator review.
Today is the LG LDC 24370 FT.
This is an $1800 bottom freezer model, so the freezers down here on the bottom and the fridge is up top.
You get 24 cubic feet of total storage space, 16.3 of which are inside the frig.
Now, I like this interior quite a bit.
It's got a lot of user friendly features from the crisper humidity controls, to the glide and serve drawers down here.
It pulls out real nicely with that hinged top kind of lifting up and out of the way.
If you also get LED lighting at the top and here in the door you get a drawer that lifts up out of the way to make room
For taller items.
You get these slider things in the drawers that help you section things off.
All in all, a lot of nice little touches in this fridge, but I also really like about About it is that it's a great performer, one of the best that we've tested so far here at CNET Appliances.
Take a look at this average temperature heat map that shows you how warm each zone gets in the fridge during our three day test with the Fridge set to 37.
They can see all those numbers are slightly above 37, a little north of the target, but they're very consistent, very even.
Even in the doors and the butter bin, which usually gets really hot.
And if you look at the graph showing the averages Over the entirety of that test, you can see it's kind of a mess, it's a jumble all those lines are all on top of each other its very tough to read.
But that a good thing that's the whole point, the lines are very close together, it's a very tight range from region to region.
That's about as good of a result as we've seen from any of the fridges that we have tested.
now the down side to this fridge, first off 1800 is about as expensive as bottom freezers come.
They usually start right about $1000.
So you are paying a lot for it.
Also, the stainless steel finish is quite fingerprint prone.
If you just wipe it here you can see it's smudgy, it's really hard to keep clean, you're gonna have to wipe it down a lot.
A little more high maintenance than I would like.
Worth noting though, you can get the same fridge with a white finish instead of that stainless steel finish for $100 less.
I think that's more tempting than usual because of all the smudging.
All in all the solid performance, user friendly design, and large capacity led me to say this is a very good frig that you should consider if you're shopping for one at the 2000 and below price range.
Thanks for watching.
