LG Electronics USA has revamped its InstaView collection of Door-in-Door refrigerators with upgraded features and design innovations for improved user convenience.
The side-by-side refrigerator models feature a larger glass panel along with a modern flat door design, new Uvnano technology built into the water dispenser to reduce bacteria, and the exclusive LG Craft Ice inside. LG is also introducing models with new InstaView voice recognition technology to take hands-free convenience to a whole new level in the kitchen, the company says.
“LG's iconic InstaView Door-in-Door technology is receiving convenience-enhancing updates in 2021,” the company says. “Helping to minimize cold air loss and extend food freshness, the LG InstaView panel illuminates the interior of the refrigerator with just two quick knocks on the transparent glass so users can see inside without opening the door, while Door-in-Door technology helps organize everyday favorites for quick and easy access to often-used items without having to open the entire refrigerator.”
Unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 2017, InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerators feature a 29-inch touch LCD display that instantly turns transparent with just two knocks of the screen and allows users to look inside the refrigerator without opening the door. The fridge’s Wi-Fi-enabled capability allows users to search recipes, play music, or place Prime-eligible orders from Amazon.com, among other functions.
Now new 2021 side-by-side models offer a larger, more immersive tinted glass panel that complements the new seamless stainless-steel flat door panel design. “With a 23 percent larger InstaView window than previous models, seeing what's inside is easier than ever,” the company says.
The company has added UVnano technology, which harnesses the power of light to help maintain a hygienic and germ-free water dispenser. First introduced in 2017 on the company's most premium water dispenser products, UVnano helps remove up to 99.99 percent of bacteria on the refrigerator's dispenser after 24 hours.
“A CES 2021 Innovation Awards Best of Innovation winner, the new LG InstaView refrigerator with voice recognition makes time spent in the kitchen more productive and more convenient,” the company says. “Consumers no longer have to struggle to open the refrigerator door when their hands are full of groceries. New voice recognition technology lets users speak simple voice commands like ‘Open the refrigerator door.’ LG's interactive voice technology also makes it possible to ask the refrigerator for today's agenda or to check the status of the ice and water dispensers.”
Every new InstaView product in the lineup incorporates freshness-enhancing systems, LINEARCooling, and DoorCooling+. LINEARCooling minimizes temperature fluctuations, while DoorCooling+ simultaneously cools the entire refrigerator compartment evenly by distributing powerful airflow from a strategically positioned vent.
Debuting in InstaView French-Door refrigerators last year, LG Craft Ice is now coming to Side-by-Side InstaView refrigerators in 2021. The 2-inch, slow-melting ice balls generated by the LG Craft Ice system make drinks look great while keeping them cool longer, the company says.
