Review of LG LMXS28626S 28 cu.ft. 4-Door French Door Refrigerator

Having a refrigerator at home is not a luxury but a necessity. However, picking something that has extra features and large capacity that isn’t necessary pushes the need to extravagance. Hence, it’s better to review the refrigerators available for you to check the one that suits your needs without breaking your bank.

There are a lot of brands and models available, and in the case of French door refrigerators, all of them are considered high-end and expensive. This type averages around two thousand bucks because of quality, materials, and function. One example is the LG LMXS28626S 28 cu.ft. 4-Door French Door Refrigerator.

PROS: This fridge is on the large side so if you’re looking for something that is roomy enough for all your food stuff, then this is a great choice, considering that this is a bit cheaper than most brands or models within the same size range. This is great for big families as you’ll be able to store a lot, especially frozen items.

CONS: Because of its large size, make sure that you have enough space for it. You might be surprised at the size if you haven’t physically checked it in a store and just ordered online. It’s better to check the dimensions of your available space and compare it with the fridge that you want to buy. Another con is the perpetual complaint about the water dispenser prone to clogging easily.
