Excellent modern styled fridge for a couple or small family. Quality industrial design.
This model is the 570L slim 835mm wide, 735mm depth version with the 4 french doors, matte black finish.
Our original problem is as renters of an old property with only 720mm wide doorways, purchasing a large fridge can have its issues trying to get it to fit through the doors. This model has a very simple method of removing the 4 doors to reduce the depth of the fridge to 620mm and reducing its weight by about 40kg. The only tools needed are a Phillips head screwdriver, hex head tool and a small stepladder. Follow the instructions in the well written info booklet and the doors are off within 10 minutes.
The delivery guys waited while I did this and then they installed the main fridge.
After reinstalling the doors, removing the protective plastics etc there is simple method of connecting the water line but you will need an adjustable spanner or equivalent to tighten the locking nut.
This fridge is well designed. Strong hinges, good recessed handles, solid feel, bright LED lights in fridge and freezer compartments, quiet operation. Simple and easy to understand buttons. Current draw is around 2 amps.
The slim indoor ice maker is another highlight. Self contained within the left hand door it allows easy access to the ice holder and the ice cube mechanism. Easy to clean and see how much gorgeous crushed ice I can crunch for my ciders. Steel crushing jaws and a steel mixing probe to keep the ice from sticking together. Wonderful.
A few minor negatives,
the WiFi connection and app is utter rubbish and I think only included so the word "smart" could be used in marketing campaigns. Just appalling and makes you cringe also doesn't have an egg holder. LG had the chance to design an amazing egg holder that flipped or slid out from somewhere but marketing wanted WiFi connectivity which did I mention is an embarrassment. Wish list. A small pull out or flip down table on the left hand door so you could sit your coffee/ tea and grab the milk from the fridge.
