LG Studio is designed to deliver a winning combination of innovative technology, energy efficiency and ultra-premium styling for an immediate upgrade to any modern kitchen.
The LG Studio flagship model is a built-in, 42-inch side-by-side refrigerator which boasts an impressive 26.5 cubic foot capacity. All Studio refrigerators incorporate LG's energy efficient Linear Compressor, a proprietary technology designed to help keep food fresher for longer and requires less power to operate. LG Studio includes a full suite of modern kitchen appliances including ranges, wall ovens, warming drawers, cooktops, microwave ovens and dishwashers. These appliances have been designed with seamless integration in mind, with clean lines and a unique, modern feel that enhances every kitchen's decor. All LG Studio appliances come with a premium stainless steel finish, including distinctive door handles that add a unique, sophisticated look.
LG's premium built-in collection also includes a new ultra-large capacity three-door refrigerator offering 25-cubic-foot capacity equipped with the company's unique Door-in-Door™ system. Catering to consumers' "on-the-go" lifestyle, LG's convenient Door-in-Door™ feature consists of a compartment within one of the refrigerator doors allowing consumers easier access to everyday foods. LG's slim-depth three-door refrigerator stands flush with the surrounding cabinets, creating a sleek, seamless appearance.
"LG Studio is our premium kitchen lineup, showcasing the very latest in smart technology and ultra-modern design," said Seong-jin Jo, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Appliance Company. "Visitors to CES 2013 will be able to see the greater level of convenience and first class styling that our luxury built-in series offers for themselves. Having received ENERGY STAR® certification and earned industry accolades, our high-quality home appliances reflect an ongoing commitment to excellence."
Larger, More Customizable Space for Greater Convenience
Both new large-capacity LG Studio refrigerators feature a host of smart organizational features that help consumers adapt the space to their own needs. Besides offering additional shelf space and Door-in-Door™ feature, LG also makes freezer organization easier with a three-tier shelf system designed to have more commonly used items within close reach on the top two shelves and long-term storage items tucked away in the bottom.
Both models also feature LG's innovative Slim Space Plus™ icemaker which frees up valuable top-shelf space by moving the ice maker into the refrigerator door, giving LG's Door-in-Door™ model an extensive amount of shelf space for a three-door model. Additionally, LG's extra-tall ice and water dispenser can accommodate a wide variety of pitchers, thanks to its extra-tall height of 9.2 inches. LG's refrigerators also come with adjustable shelving and sliding door baskets, while multiple pull-out drawers allow for the utmost in customized organization, enabling consumers to quickly locate exactly what they need.
Energy Efficiency and High Technology in a Stylish Design
LG Studio refrigerators are ENERGY STAR qualified in recognition of their energy efficiency. The refrigerators are built around LG's Linear Compressor, one of LG's four core technologies in major appliances. Typically, a refrigerator's compressor is either running at full capacity or turned off completely. LG's Linear Compressor, on the other hand, varies output according to need to help achieve fewer temperature swings, leading to lower energy consumption. With fewer moving parts and greater efficiency, the motor is backed by a 10-year limited manufacturer's warranty.
The new Studio refrigerators also feature LG's proprietary Smart Diagnosis™, a technology which helps customer service representatives quickly and efficiently troubleshoot mechanical issues over the phone, limiting costly, inconvenient service calls and in-home visits*. If an in-home visit is required, this technology helps the field technician arrive on site with the correct parts, reducing the need for multiple visits. For minor problems, such as when the refrigerator door is unintentionally left open, the refrigerator will alert the owner through its display panel.
Sleek, contoured doors and hidden hinges complement the premium design of LG Studio refrigerators. Highlighted by bright LED lighting in the walls and a horizontally brushed stainless steel finish, these refrigerators are as sophisticated as they are functional.
Smart Cooling Plus™
Working in sync with the Linear Compressor is LG's Smart Cooling Plus™ technology with unique Dual Evaporators that react quickly to humidity and temperature changes to help keep food fresher, longer. Digital sensors closely monitor temperature and humidity levels to help maintain the perfect temperature for food storage. Meanwhile, the Fresh Air Filter and Multi-Air Flow's strategically located vents in every section of the refrigerator surround food items with cool air.
*SmartDiagnosis™ is designed to supplement existing methods of problem identification and may not be able to troubleshoot all issues.
