I had been looking for an American style fridge/freezer for a while but was not prepared to fork out to have it plumbed in. This little beauty from LG fitted the bill perfectly as it is one of the few on the market which are stand alone - no pipe work needed.
It does have the cold water and ice dispenser (both crushed ice and cubes) but the water supply comes from a large container which is fitted inside the fridge door. By my calculation this holds about four litres ( 9 pints approx). If you in a hard water area like me, use filtered water in the dispenser to avoid lime scale build up in the pipes. The freezer makes approximately one cube of ice per hour and deposits it into a holder inside the freezer door. We have never run out of ice yet although you may need to buy in a bag if having a party.
The fridge side has a capacity of 352 litres, considerably more than a standard under-worktop fridge. There are three toughened glass shelves which can, handily, be moved to your chosen height. These clean up very well and are easy to remove and refit. The fridge also comes with two salad boxes which is a great extra. No more delicate veg squashed in with heavy spuds or root veg. These salad boxes really do keep veg crisp and fresh. Inside the door is the water container but also five door shelves which hold an awful lot of bottles, jars, eggs, cheese etc etc.
The freezer is slightly smaller than the fridge but still has a large capacity for food storage in the three shelves and two drawers. LGs No Frost system means never having to defrost it, either.
I love this fridge. It looks good in the kitchen, the brushed steel exterior cleans up beautifully with a damp cloth. This appliance is also really quiet and seems to be very well built as it has already done two house moves in six months with no loss of performance. Well done LG.
