Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great storage!! We love our counter depth refrigerator. We love the French doors, the lighting and the room inside is so great. I find everything right away and dont have to dig for it. The door in door is absolutely marvelous. I am not so the one knocking on the door for the light but my husband is. I really like the drawer right underneath the French doors. I use it for deli, lunch meat, tortillas, cheese and some sodas on the side. I love the deviders. I also love the freezer part underneath, i have all my frozen veggies and my meet in there. The water though taste kind of like metal, i will look for a different filter for that. This refrigerator fits better in the space then my old one did. I am very happy with it.

Does the black door scratch easily to reveal the stainless below?

Asked by: Sunshine100
The Black Stainless Steel on the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 23 cu. ft. InstaView™ Door-in-Door® Counter-Depth Refrigerator, Model # LMXC23796D is stainless steel coated with a darker hue and topped with a protective coating. It's the protective coating that makes the Black Stainless Steel fingerprint and smudge resistant, but if it is scratched, depending on how deep the scratch is, it will expose the black stainless steel under the coating...^IFV

What is Black Stainless Steel?  The rest of the appliances in my kitchen will be stainless steel.  I like the counter-depth door-in-door LMXC23796D.  I would like it to match my other stainless steel appliances.  Will this be available in March?

Asked by: MGreg
The only announcement to date that LG has made with regards to the availability of the LG 23 cu. ft. InstaView™ Door-in-Door® Counter-Depth Refrigerator, Model # LMXC23796D is that it would be available along with 4 other new InstaView Door-in-Door French Door ENERGY STAR® certified refrigerators through select U.S. Retailers nationwide starting in September. We currently do not have any updates. The Black Stainless Steel is formed from stainless steel coated with a darker hue and topped with a protective coating, that makes LG Black Stainless Steel Series Appliances fingerprint and smudge resistant. The color on the sides is referred to as 'Western Black' which is a charcoal color... ^IFV
