LG Fridge Solves a First World Problem

With as ridiculously hot as it has been this summer, one of the things I’ve noticed in my non-air conditioned house is how quickly the items in my refrigerator form condensation when I open the door, and how quickly things taken from the refrigerator warm up. Which leads me to believe that if I open the door repeatedly to get things out or put them in, the food in there isn’t being kept at the optimal temperature. Which in turn leads me to think maybe that could cause some health problems.

LG has developed a new refrigerator that can solve this decidedly first world problem. It’s got a double door inside a double door! Built into one of the side-by-side refrigerator doors is a second door where you can store things you tend to take in and out most often, such as sodas, fruit or condiments. This leaves the remainder of your refrigerated items protected from the overwhelming heat of your kitchen. It also will cut down on how often your refrigerator has to run in order to maintain its interior temperature, since the cold air won’t be rushing out nearly as often.

The second door is magnetically sealed, so you will need to push a button if you want to open only the outer door rather than both of them. But it also means you won’t accidentally open just the outer door when you really wanted to get out your leftover pot roast. The refrigerator itself offers 31 cubic feet of storage space, with a more streamlined interior so you can more easily see everything you have. The end result here is that you’re going to save money on your electric bill as well as your food bill, and I can’t see much of anything to dislike about that.

What I don’t see is a price, or when this might be available on the market. But LG doesn’t tend to announce something you can’t have soon, so keep an eye out for it.
