LG Electronics (LG) is expanding its Studio Series line of premium appliances as part of its commitment to help consumers achieve total efficiency by offering savings in time, energy and effort. LG’s new ultra-large capacity 3-door refrigerator comes with a unique door-in-door feature, a magnetically sealed section of one of the two refrigerator doors that provides quick access to the contents stored in the door bins. With a shallower depth, this 25 cubic feet-capacity refrigerator stands flush with countertops for a sleek, seamless look and the largest amount of storage in its class.
Also added to the Studio Series line is LG’s built-in 42-inch side-by-side refrigerator, boasting the largest capacity of any refrigerator in its class at 26.5 cubic feet, and marking LG’s foray into the built-in refrigeration category. This new refrigerator is the flagship of the LG Studio Series suite of high-end appliances that brings together refrigerators, ranges, wall ovens, warming drawers, cooktops, hoods, microwave ovens and dishwashers in an impressive package designed to make a bold statement in any home.
“More and more consumers have been seeking sophisticated designs and high performance features for their home appliances,” said Chris Jung, President of Home Appliances, LG Electronics USA, Inc. “Our new refrigerators meet these needs in terms of design and function as well as capacity.”
Larger, More Customizable Space for Greater Convenience
Both new LG Studio Series refrigerators feature the largest capacities in their class and a host of smart organizational features that help consumers adapt the space to their own needs. Besides offering additional shelf space, LG’s unique door-in-door feature allows quick trips to the fridge easier and more convenient. By allowing access to the door bin without opening the refrigerator, this feature reduces energy loss by keeping more of the cold air inside of the refrigerator where it belongs. The same items can also be accessed through a pressure-activated clear panel on the inside of the door-in-door shelves. LG’s door-in-door refrigerator also makes freezer organization easier with a three-tier shelf system designed to store more commonly used items within close reach on the top two shelves and larger or less frequently accessed items tucked away at the bottom.
Both new models feature LG’s innovative Slim Space Plus icemaker which frees up valuable top-shelf space by moving the ice maker into the refrigerator door, giving LG’s door-in-door the most shelf space of any 3-door refrigerator. Additionally, LG’s extra-tall ice and water dispenser can accommodate a wider variety of cups and jugs, due to its extra tall height of 9.2 inches. LG’s built-in refrigerator also comes with adjustable shelving and sliding door baskets, while multiple pull-out drawers allow for the utmost in customized organization, enabling consumers to quickly locate exactly what they need.
Energy Efficiency and High Technology in a Stylish Design
All Studio Series refrigerators are ENERGY STAR qualified in recognition of their frugal energy usage. The refrigerators are built around LG’s Linear Compressor, one of LG’s four Core Technologies, which requires 17 percent less energy compared to previous models with conventional compressors. Typically, a refrigerator’s compressor is either running at full capacity or turned off completely. LG’s Linear Compressor, on the other hand, varies output according to need, resulting in fewer temperature swings and lower energy consumption. With fewer moving parts and greater efficiency, the motor is also backed up by a 10-year warranty.
The new Studio Series refrigerators also come with LG’s proprietary Smart Diagnosis feature. This technology helps customer service representatives quickly and efficiently troubleshoot mechanical issues over the phone, limiting costly, inconvenient service calls and in-home visits. If an in-home visit is required, the field technician can remotely collect the necessary information and then arrive on site with the correct parts, reducing the need for multiple visits. For minor problems, such as when the refrigerator door is unintentionally left open, the refrigerator will alert the owner through its display panel.
Sleek contoured doors and hidden hinges complement the premium design of LG Studio Series refrigerators, highlighted by bright LED lighting in the walls and a horizontally-brushed stainless steel finish for a look that make these refrigerators as sophisticated as they are functional.
Optimal Environment for Long-Lasting Freshness
Working in sync with the Linear Compressor is LG’s Smart Cooling Plus technology with unique Dual Evaporators that react quickly to humidity and temperature changes, keeping food fresher longer. Digital sensors inside the fresh food section also closely monitor temperature and humidity levels, ensuring the perfect temperature for food storage. Meanwhile, the Fresh Air Filter and Multi-Air Flow’s strategically located vents in every section of the refrigerator surround food items with cool, fresh air, regardless of their location.
