Think you’ll run out of ice?
ThinQ Again.

From making extra ice for tonight’s dinner party to getting smartphone notifications when the door is left open, use the LG SmartThinQ™ app to control key features and get important notifications from anywhere. It even works with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can control your LG refrigerator with your voice.

What Is Counter-Depth?

LG counter-depth refrigerators align with countertops and cabinetry for a uniform profile, creating a sophisticated built-in look without the high-end price tag.

Most shelf space.*

Ice makers are great, but not if it means you can't fit all of your food in the fridge. The Slim SpacePlus® Ice System provides more shelf space and allows even more space for door bins.

*Standard width french door refrigerator, excludes other LG manufactured products

Fresher is better.

Smart Cooling® Plus technology is designed to maintain superior conditions within the refrigerator. The Linear Compressor and Dual Evaporators react quickly to humidity and temperature levels and help keep your food fresher, longer. Strategically-placed vents in every section help surround your food with cool, fresh air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this refridgerator! This refridgerator has made our lives easier. I have a teenager and a tween, and they were constantly standing in front of our old refridgerator with the door open looking for drinks. Now they knock, use the door-in-door and leave. Our family also loves the water dispenser because it will accommodate any size water bottle. All the different features of this refridgerator has made our lives so much easier. I know that sounds corny, but I don't have to dig so much to find stuff and the even the kids can see and find things easily and are not constantly asking me where everything is. We love 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
