Peace of Mind

When you buy a refrigerator, you don't want to worry that it won't last. Because the Linear Compressor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the Linear Compressor with a 10-year limited warranty.


Lactic Acid

The LG Kimchi and Specialty Food refrigerator features a unique lactic acid option that automatically adjusts temperatures to enhance and increase the production of lactic acid bacteria that are key to fermented foods. And with the ability to create precise temperature zones, the superior LG cooling system aids in flavor development.


Freshness Guard Cover

Keep your fruits sweeter, your seafood fresher, your kimchi tastier. The LG Kimchi and Specialty Food refrigerator includes a freshness guard cover that reduces cold air loss and keeps moisture in, enhancing the flavor of your specialty foods.


Cooling Care

LG's innovative Cooling Care system creates ideal storage for kimchi and other specialty foods that require specific cooling environments. It supplies cold air every 6 minutes through 20 air vents located throughout the refrigerator to keep internal temperature consistent and reduce fluctuation.


Kimchi Case

LG Kimchi and Specialty Food refrigerator are equipped with customized storage containers that are 100 airtight to seal in the freshness while preventing aroma overload. With 8 containers in chest models, they offer a generous 35 gallons of storage capacity-ample room for all of your favorites.


Specialty Foods Deserve Precision Cooling

Excellent Fridge...not just for Kimchi

John Crash 6/22/2018

As a young Korean-American couple wed heard for years about the necessity of a separate and specialized refrigerator to store kimchi - a staple of Korean cuisine. We hadnt given it much thought until we realized we were running out of room in our kitchen fridge. Weve been tremendously satisfied with this LG kimchi fridge we store kimchi in one compartment and produce and meats in the other.

Yes, I recommend this product
