This LG top freezer fridge is as big as they come

Kitchen & Household
[MUSIC] Top freezer fridge. Are there three more exciting words in the English language. I don't know. I'm just a tech journalist. But I do know that this top freezer fridge is a pretty good one. It's a LG LTCS244223S and it's a very large. 24 cubic foot model that costs $1200. Now that's the same large capacity we saw with the Kenmore 79432 and that fridge is actually built off of an existing model as this one. So they're very similar. This version, though, has a better design with recessed handles and a stainless steel finish. Both of those contribute to a more modern aesthetic. Opening the fridge up, you can get a good sense of all the storage space inside of it. This is about as big as top freezers get. You've got plenty of room for groceries. We were able to fit all of our goods inside of it, along with our six bulky stress test items and extra large The pizza box, casserole dish, things like that. All of it fit just fine, didn't need to move any shelves, very happy with that result. One very minor quibble with the storage space. For such a big fridge it's got a pretty small butter bin, not big enough to hold a tub like this one of margarine or butter. Just something to be aware of. Overall, though, I think this is a nice design. It's not terribly feature-rich. There's no water dispenser, no touchscreen on the front. But you do get a nice deli drawer that runs the width of the interior and also that nice diamond contoured pattern at the bottom of the indoor shelves. It just looks good. My real question with this fridge, though, is how its performance Stack up against that Kenmore model which is one of the best performing top freezers we've tested. Here's the heat map of that Kenmore. You can see it did a great job and kept temperatures at the default setting right around where you want them, the 37. Now compare that to the LPCS24223S here. It's not quite as good. You've got temperatures inching up close to that 40 degree mark in the body of the And hot spots throughout the door and the crisper bins. And then here at the coldest setting, it only inches down about two degrees, I'd like to see a bigger swing than that, more flexibility to dial the temperature down. Still, the performance is passable here and it's really all about the storage space here with 17.6 cubic feet in the body of the fridge, you're getting more than you'd get Even with some mid range French door models. So if you're thinking about upgrading to one of those just for the size, you can save some money and go with this instead. For the full skinny on this fat fridge, check out my full review cnn.com.
