ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Home appliance innovator LG Electronics has earned the coveted Good Housekeeping Seal from the Good Housekeeping Research Institute for eight additional refrigerators. The company now has 23 refrigerators backed by the Seal, the most of any appliance manufacturer.
The Good Housekeeping Seal, introduced more than 100 years ago to protect consumers from false claims made on products entering the marketplace, is widely recognized as one of the nation's most trusted and influential emblems in helping guide product purchasing decisions. Products that have earned the Seal are backed by an independent two-year limited warranty* provided by Good Housekeeping.
"Now more than ever, our readers are relying on us to help them cut through the clutter of claims to find products that really perform as promised, and one of the many ways we do this is with the Good Housekeeping Seal," said Miriam Arond, director of the Good Housekeeping Research Institute. "We're impressed with the wide variety of innovative features that LG refrigerators offer and we're confident in the quality products they provide for consumers."
James Fishler, senior vice president of marketing for LG Electronics USA, said, "We're proud of the recognition our appliances receive for their innovation, energy efficiency and reliability, and consumers can rest-assured knowing they can purchase LG refrigerators without any hesitation. We're especially pleased to be working with Good Housekeeping on this coveted distinction, as we feel they are a perfect partner with a consumer-education track record that speaks for itself."
LG's line-up of award-winning refrigerators feature the latest technologies that help make consumers lives easier. For example, LG's French-Door Refrigerator with Door-in-Door™ technology (model LFX31945) features a separate compartment within one of the refrigerator doors, allowing easier access to everyday foods. LG's Smart Refrigerator (model LFX31995) is equipped with a full range of smart technologies such as the Smart Manager feature, which transforms the refrigerator into a complete food management system. In addition, all of the refrigerators earning the Seal include the following innovative features:
- Linear Compressor: This patented compressor drives the system efficiently from its core. With fewer moving parts and thereby less friction, the Linear Compressor regulates temperature with less noise and far less energy use. LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year limited warranty.
- Slim Space Plus™ technology: This innovation offers an uncluttered interior as it relocates the ice system to inside the door, providing the most shelf space* and makes way for additional usable door bins.
- Energy Efficient: All LG French-door refrigerators are ENERGY STAR® certified, meaning they are among the most energy-efficient refrigerators in their respective classes. In fact, LG's Ultra-Capacity refrigerator that earned the Seal (model LFX28991) received the 2013 ENERGY STAR Most Efficient designation, recognizing this appliance among the most efficient products that qualify for the ENERGY STAR label.
