This entry-level LG fridge doesn't keep things cold enough

Refrigerators
[SOUND] The LG LFCS25426D,is honestly one of the nicest looking bargain fridges I've ever tested. The suggested retail price is $1,900 But I've been seeing it for as low as 13 hundred which is a very good deal for an entry level french door fridge. Let alone one that can pass for something higher end. That means that this fridge is almost purely a design play. It's a refrigerator built for people that don't care about features and just want something that looks acceptably high end without breaking the bank. I have no problem with that approach and honestly think that it makes for a pretty Pretty good pitch, but the problem here is performance. Just look at the heat maps from our temperature tests. At the default setting of 37 degrees, you've got multiple orange hotspots throughout the door shelves and even one there in the main body of the fridge. Hotspot between the door is one thing, but those main shelves really ought to stable at 40 degrees. Now you could dial the fridge down a few degrees That makes it a little more expensive to run, and even here at the coldest 33 degrees setting we've still got a hotspot in the door. Inside you've got 25.4 cubic feet of total storage space, maybe just a bit above average when you're talking about a French door that costs around $1,500. Bottom line, if you want a black stainless steel fridge for as little as possible This is one of the first options that will come up and it looks good. I can forgive a lack of features if you're getting a discount and in this case the price is right. The performance however is not and for that reason I just can't recommend it. [BLANK_AUDIO]
