ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading home appliance manufacturer LG Electronics is significantly expanding the number of refrigerators in 2017 outfitted with the popular InstaView™ feature that allows users to knock twice to illuminate its glass panel and see inside the refrigerator without opening the door. This year, 13 LG refrigerators – available in various sizes, finishes and configurations and starting at $2,199 – will offer InstaView, the next generation of LG's award-winning Door-in-Door® technology, providing flexibility so consumers can enjoy this new technology in the configuration and style that meets their needs.
In addition to InstaView, these models incorporate advanced technologies designed for easier access and extending food freshness. LG's Door-in-Door technology serves as the foundation for the InstaView panel and allows users to access often-used items without having to open the entire refrigerator. Simply push a button on the door to release the magnetic seal and access the compartment. The refrigerator's ColdSaver™ Panel, a barrier between the interior compartment and the rest of the refrigerator, reduces cold air loss and helps keep food fresh.
Demonstrated here this week at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (LG Booth #W329), select new refrigerator models with InstaView also feature LG's black stainless steel finish, which enhances the most beautifully crafted kitchens with a modern update to traditional stainless steel. It features a timeless aesthetic that seamlessly complements a range of infinite kitchen design styles and colors. The warm, satin-smooth and sophisticated finish is also fingerprint- and smudge-resistant which wipes clean with a soft, dry cloth, making it easier than ever to have a premium kitchen that is effortless to maintain.
"In the few short months since LG launched InstaView into the U.S. market, this unique feature piqued the interest of many who are interested in 'seeing' their food in a new way," said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing for LG Electronics USA. "This year, consumers will have even more choices of refrigerators that feature our most impressive new technology at various price points, proving that with LG there's no need to compromise functionality for style."
With LG's lineup expanding to 13 InstaView refrigerators this year, consumers can select the model that is best suited to their lifestyle and family needs based on configuration, style and finish across a variety of price points, ensuring there is a model for everyone.
