LG fridges in Kenya

LG fridges in Kenya are well known for their innovative features and durability.

The company has a wide range of fridge models for different households and needs.

Whether you have a large family with massive food storage demands or if you’re by yourself and only need a modest amount of fridge space, LG have a fridge for you.

I’ve been using a single door LG fridge for over 5 years, so I can vouch for the quality.

For the features, LG fridges are right there at the top and compete mostly with only Samsung.

Price wise, LG fridges can be classified as mid-priced or expensive, depending on the model.

If you’re looking for budget options, you’ll be better served by brands like Von Hotpoint or Mika.

With those brands however, you’ll be missing out on premium features found only in LG fridges.

Speaking of premium features, when shopping for an LG fridge in Kenya, be on the lookout for the following features:

DoorCooling⁺™ technology: this feature quickly cools the door section of the fridge.

This helps stabilize the internal fridge temperature and cools your beverages quicker than normal fridges.

LINEARCooling™ technology: as the name suggests, this feature ensures linear or even cooling by controlling temperature fluctuation within ±0.5℃.

This helps keep food fresher for longer especially in busy households where the fridge door is opened many times in a day.

Hygiene Fresh+™: this is LG’s antibacterial and air purification system for fridges.

It uses a filter and multiple steps to eliminate up to 99.99% of bacteria and bad odors leaving you with a pleasant fridge aroma.

Inverter Linear Compressor: these are compressors from LG that produce less noise when compared to conventional compressors.

They also use less energy and are more reliable. On top of that, LG give you a 10 year warranty on the compressor.

Multi Air Flow: LG fridges with this feature come with strategically placed air vents designed to surround your food with cool air.

This feature uses multiple sensors inside the fridge to monitor the temperature and humidity at different sections.

Cool air is then released through the vents to ensure the entire fridge stays uniformly cooled.

LG SmartThinQ™: LG fridges with this feature can be managed remotely using an app installed in your smartphone.

The app allows you to adjust the temperature of the fridge or get notified in case you leave the fridge door open.

Fresh 0 Zone: This is a dedicated compartment in LG fridges that maintains the temperature at 0 degrees.

The food stored in this section doesn’t turn into ice completely, saving you the hassle of thawing.

Door-in-Door™ technology: LG fridges with this feature come with a split door that allows you to easily access frequently used items without having to open the whole fridge door.

This feature ensures food in the fridge stays fresher for longer. It minimizes temperature fluctuations that occur when the entire fridge door is opened frequently.

Here’s a list of the best LG fridges available in Kenya. To help make your buying decision easier, we’ve included the features and price of each model.
