LG’s French Door Refrigerator with Innovative Dual Access Door System Allows for Greater Convenience Whilst Keeping Food Fresh.

 

LG Electronics (LG) has announced the launch of its latest refrigerator range equipped with the innovative New Zealand first full Door-in-Door technology. A specially designed dual access door system featuring a convenient panel that consumers can open simply with the push of a button, to reveal an unexpected new space to store and organise their food and beverages.

 

Design, style and convenience are at the heart of this unique new Door-in-Door technology. Ideal for busy families, large households and regular entertainers, the elegant new model allows consumers to place their most popular chilled items in the front door and store larger and less used items in a second fridge compartment at the back.

 

Thanks to the innovative Door-in-Door feature, consumers can conveniently find and retrieve their favourite snacks or beverages without having to search the refrigerator. In addition to the quick and easy access to frequently sought- after food items, the Door-in-Door minimises temperature loss for a more consistent fridge temperature.

 

“LG has long been committed to delivering outstanding refrigerators that help consumers enjoy greater levels of convenience in their lives and also help food stay fresher for longer.” said Richard Bryant, National Marketing Manager, LG New Zealand. “With these goals in mind, we are bringing our latest premium French Door refrigerator with the Door-in-Door system to the New Zealand market. Consumers can put their favourite food and beverage items in the Door-in- Door compartment and easily take them out without opening the entire refrigerator door.”

 

LG’s leading model is the Premium Door-in-Door French Door Fridge (GR-D907SL) currently offering the largest gross volume capacity of a French Door format on the New Zealand market.

 

It delivers an impressive 907 litres gross capacity – over 100 litres more than the largest French Door Fridge currently in the market, yet it maintains a width of 908mm, allowing it to fit within a 920mm wide kitchen cavity. LG achieves this large capacity through the application of High Density Insulation Technology in the refrigeration compartment. Additionally, this large capacity model provides wide refrigerator access with an internal 832mm width - perfect for extra wide platters for entertaining.

 

Other unique LG features include the innovative Slim Indoor Ice Maker that is built in the door, improving space efficiency resulting wide open shelf space in the refrigerator interior and retractable interior shelf to create space for taller items. An exciting new feature is LG’s wide, temperature controlled pantry drawer which not only offers wide storage space for large food and platters but you can select the optimal storage temperature depending what you place within, -1°C for meats, 1°C for deli items or 3°C for vegetables.

 

LG’s Door-in-Door refrigerator’s stylish exterior can be harmonised seamlessly into almost any kitchen environment with its sleek stainless steel finish. The refrigerator also uses LED lighting that emits a soft blue light, adding a special accent to the décor and providing much appreciated illumination at night. In addition, the three layered freezer organisation provides three well-spaced and easy to access storage drawers in the freezer for better use of the interior area and a much sought out solution for achieving tidy freezer organisation.

 

LG’s Pure N Fresh Filter is also equipped inside the new range. This technology serves as an air filtration system that circulates air and deodoriser to reduce odours within the fridge.

 

The new LG Door-in-Door refrigerator range will launch in December 2012. The hero GR-D907SL 907Ltr French Door Fridge will be available in December 2012 with a RRP of $5,999. It will be complimented by a range of two additional models launched during December 2012 including a Side by Side Door-in-Door format.

 

The launch will be supported by an exciting national multi-channel communication campaign featuring LG’s brand ambassador Georgie Parker.

 

“I’m thrilled to be working with LG on the launch of the Door-in-Door range of refrigerators. In my household we are constantly stocking our fridge; it is always bursting with fresh produce. The size of the back compartment and convenience of the first door allows for everything to stay fresh and organised throughout our busy week. I especially love the temperature controlled draws, as I find it keeps our vegies fresher for longer.” said Georgie Parker, LG Home Appliance Ambassador.

 

The refrigerator range comes with LG’s 10-year parts warranty on its core technology the Linear Compressor, delivering efficient performance and quietness.
