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, so you can operate smart features 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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love!!! We bought the LG Door in Door about a month ago and I am absolutely in love with it. I'd never had a freezer on the bottom before, but so far, it seems to be actually easier to find things quickly. I really like the extra drawers in the freezer. Makes organizing a snap. My only criticism would be that I wish the shelves in the door-in-door were adjustable, and the door shelves were about an inch deeper. The actual refrigerator seems like it has so much more room than my old side by side. My favorite feature is the middle refrigerator drawer... So, so handy for snacks, sandwich fixings, and cold drinks. I would recommend this product to everyone. Like I said, "I love it!"

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Happy We bought this refrigerator last June and didn't realize how hard it was going to be to find filters for this item. I went to Home depot where we bought it and they don't have any, then we tried a Factory LG store who has told us they are on back order and they were ordered at the beginning of January. If anyone knows where we can find them, please let us know.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spacious I bought this fridge 3 weeks ago and so far I like it - I don't LOVE it. It's definitely roomy and I love all the drawers and the freezer. Keeps my food organized for sure. I would have given it a 5 except that I do NOT LIKE the water dispenser. I hate that it has gotten scratched up because my kids place their water bottles against it. I also hate that it is on the outside of the opening. It catches people by surprise and it wets everything. It's not a good water dispenser at all! It sucks. The ice maker is also very small and with a very active family of 5 and drinking tons of water the icemaker does not keep up. Also hate hate hate that finger prints are so visible and when you have kids they just tend to want to touch everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I JUST LOVE IT I have had this refrigerator for nearly a year now and have to say that I love it! It has WIFI too, but I don't use that feature. Drawers are so easy to pull out and make easy access to freezer and deli drawer. Water filter is simple to change. Really nice door-in-door feature that allows you access without opening the whole cold section. Also, you can 'knock' on the window to see what is inside. Very very cool refrigerator. Counter-depth is great as it doesn't stick out in the room like my last appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looked for two years and waited...for this fridge We had been looking to remodel our kitchen for 30+ the last two, we looked at appliances several times a month. For a busy family we liked the one with the cpudisplay, but we are retired and did not need that feature. We then discovered this with the door in the door. It fit our needs perfectly. We had a side by side 25 cuft that was always hard to organize and the freezer burried its contents. This counter depth fride swallowed everything from that fridge and with room to spare. We love the center drawer and purpose it for every day use and can customize it when we entertain. The freezer is perfect for our use as we do not over purchase or go nuts at the big box stores. Weakness is its app. Cant get it to work other than to give same info that is on the door displat. Tells us to get a specific app in app store, but there is none by that name or title, and what is there is useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great (and beautiful) We have had this refrigerator for several months now and we absolutely love it. Not only is it beautiful, but so well designed for our food storage. Love the door in door and not having to open frig every time just to see what I have or don't have. Middle drawer is such a handy asset and great for keeping snacks and overflow of drinks handy. Vegetable bins keep veggies so much longer than my previous appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Refrigerator We bought this 2 months ago, but had to wait for delivery. It was worth the wait. My wife and I love it. It is VERY quiet and the 4 doors/drawers are very convenient. I can't believe that a mere three inches less depth makes our kitchen seem so much bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! The door in door is the best feature ever....I put all my normal go-to things in there and only open the French doors once or so a day. The freezer is a little small...but good enough for a small family.
