We’ve never really noticed this before, but according to the research and tech folks over at LG every time we open the fridge door to grab a drink, we let enough cooling out to seriously hamper the performance of our fridge. But the appliance giant has a clever solution to the problem and it comes to us in the guise of the new “Door-in-Door” aka the French-door refrigerator. The idea behind the new design is pretty simple- every time a user need to take out something stored in the fridge’s door, say juice and drink bottles or cans, they can simply grab it from the door located outside the fridge instead of opening the main compartment.
The super storage fridge comes with a 878-liter (31-cubic foot) capacity and comes with a slim compartment located within the right door. A button on the door’s handle opens up the magnetically sealed “door-in-door” where users can browse through their grab and go items. Meanwhile, the main door of the fridge stays shut so that ambient air doesn’t creep into the main compartment and dilute the cooling inside. The fridge also comes laced with a “Smart Cooling Plus System” which keeps internal conditions in constant check through digital sensors.
A dual evaporator and a linear compressor keep the fridge’s cooling in check which helps keep food fresher for longer. The fridge also comes with a triple-tier freezer compartment, an LCD LED touch panel display outside the left door, a door alarm and LED lighting inside that helps users save up to 17 percent energy. The new LG French-door refrigerator is set to retail at a price of $3,500 and is currently available in the market.
