The LG LTC22350WH is a 22-cubic-foot, Energy Star-qualified top-freezer refrigerator. In professional tests, it gets good scores for temperature performance and noise level, and excellent efficiency ratings. Storage features include four split glass shelves, three half-width and one full-width door bins, a dairy drawer and two humidity-controlled crispers, which users say do a great job of keeping food fresh. It also has a built-in ice maker that can produce cubes of different sizes, a feature many owners like. This LG fridge comes in white or stainless steel; its warranty covers the sealed system for seven years and all other parts for one year.
Owners generally say this refrigerator is spacious, quiet and easy to use. However, several note that the freezer door tends to pop open and the ice maker can be noisy. Few users experience mechanical problems with this fridge, but those who did say LG's customer service isn't very accommodating. If you want a top-freezer fridge with better customer support, the Maytag M1TXEGMYW (Est. $750) also gets high marks from both professionals and users.
