Works okay

Mjustenusa 5/24/2022

We bought this two months ago and started to notice that items were freezing. We turned all settings to low found out that is the warmest setting and still found things frozen. We started a repair ticket with LG and discovered no one in our area will service it. We are very happy we purchased it from Costco because they have a 90 day return policy. Make sure you have a service center in your area

Excellent Build Quality

Morganfield 8/29/2021

Very pleased with purchase of 14.3 cu. ft. Kimchi Refrigerator. Terrific design and quality of interior with custom storage containers--exactly what my wife wanted for a 2nd refrigerator. One issue: Im seeking to set the coldest possible temperature of the Bottom CustomChill Drawer in order to freeze food for long-term storage. Referencing page 25 of the Owners Manual Ive set the Bottom Compartment setting to ProduceHigh Cooling but it appears that setting wont fall below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Please advise whether the setting Rice/GrainStorageFast ChillOn or KimchiHigh CoolingFast ChillOn is the coolest setting.

Keeps Kimchi tasty

Jeanbtj 8/1/2021

The LG kimchi refrigerator keeps my kimchi tasting as if they were buried in the ground throughout the winter months which brings back memories of having wonderful kimchi in Korea as a child. Because if its diverse functionality I use it to keep produce and many other type of foods that remain crisp and fresh for longer period of time than the conventional refrigerator. I can see that they put so much thought into the interior designs and attributes for users comfort. Finally I love the flexibility of being able to choose different functionality for each of the four compartments.

Yeong 7/11/2021

I purchased this one about 2 months ago that I really dreamed to have one. As I expected this one is giving fresh food and refresh all beverages in it. Also it has enough spaces to put all food that I need to save fresh.
