LG ELECTRONICS UNVEILS NEXT GENERATION OF AWARD-WINNING TV REFRIGERATOR AT K/BIS 2006
Digital Refrigerator of Tomorrow Brings Benefits of
Design, Entertainment, Practicality to Today's Kitchens
CHICAGO, April 21, 2006 - LG Electronics makes kitchens more innovative, stylish and family-friendly with the introduction of the next generation of its popular TV Refrigerator.
In addition to its remote-controlled, cable-ready, 15-inch LCD television screen on the right door, the sleek side-by-side LG TV Refrigerator now includes a four-inch WeatherPlusTM LCD display located above the dispenser that includes weather forecasts, a digital photo album, recipe bank and more.
"As the major appliance industry's leader in digital convergence, LG Electronics is constantly seeking out ways in which we can create innovative products that can help to improve the quality of consumers' every day lives - especially in the kitchen," said Soon Kwon, president of Digital Appliances for LG Electronics USA, Inc., here today at the 2006 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show (Booth #7516, North Hall). "The next generation LG TV Refrigerator, one of our key flagship products, accomplishes this goal. In fact, we've even taken it a step further. With this latest innovation, consumers will receive personalized weather reports for their area, in real time. There is nothing available like this on the market today."
The next generation LG TV Refrigerator will dazzle consumers who are seeking premium, technologically advanced appliances for their homes. The WeatherPlus display houses an information center with features that include personalized weather forecasts based on a consumer's given area, date/time, calendar with alarm, eight-category recipe bank with 100 pre-loaded recipes, and a personal digital photo album. The personal photo album can be uploaded via a USB port in the dispenser area. A child lock function, room temperature
display, digital user manual, product controls and warnings are also part of the complete package. The right side features a 15-inch standard definition, cable-ready LCD TV with DVD connection and FM radio for hours of kitchen entertainment.
The LG TV Refrigerator line also incorporates LG's new SpacePlus" Ice Making system, which makes ice directly on the door, as opposed to on the top of the freezer section. This helps to free up valuable storage capacity within the freezer compartment, while still delivering the convenience of an in-door ice dispenser. For added convenience, the icemaker also features a custom cube option and a removable bin to make serving a breeze. This new system is also available in other select LG side-by-side refrigerator models.
The next-generation LG TV Refrigerator also boasts other convenient features including:
- IcePlusTM system - makes ice faster, delivering added convenience
- Digital temperature sensor controls
- OptiFresh® crisper - keeps produce fresher, longer by using an indirect cooling system that prevents dehydration, freezing, or frosting; a sensor keeps the temperature at 34 degrees Fahrenheit (+/- 1 degree) to preserve food quality
- SmoothTouch Controls
- BioShield" anti-bacterial gasket - prevents mold and mildew from forming on the door seal
- Icy Water Reservoir
- CustomCube® Ice Maker - automatic ice maker provides a choice of three cube sizes
- Grab n' Go" door basket, wine rack, tilting door bins, glass and sliding shelves
- Built-in look with hidden hinges and contoured door design
The new, next generation LG TV Refrigerator recently captured industry recognition and accolades including the 2006 CES "Innovation Award for Design and Engineering" as the best new product in the appliance category. The LG TV Refrigerator, model LSC27990TT, will be available Q2 2006 in a titanium finish at a manufacturer's suggested retail price ranging from $3,499 to $3,699.
