Six reasons why you should add an LG InstaView fridge-freezer to your kitchen

Kit out your kitchen with the freshest fridge-freezer in town

What does your fridge-freezer do? It keeps your milk chilled, your beers frosty and your leftovers edible – and probably not much more. But if that’s all you expect from your appliance, you haven’t encountered the LG InstaView Door-in-Door Fridge Freezer and its numerous fun, futuristic features. It can crush ice in an instant, it includes a bottle rack that keeps white wine at the perfect temperature – and you don’t even need to open the door to check what’s inside. Here’s six reasons why the LG InstaView Door-in-Door Fridge Freezer is the coolest cooler around.

1. Knock twice to see what’s inside

There’s no need to let the cold air out when checking your supplies. LG’s InstaView Door-in-Door Fridge Freezer features a nifty “door-in-door” component that lights up to reveal the contents when you knock twice on the glass window – so you can easily check what needs to be replenished, or find inspiration for a snack, without sticking your head between jars of pickles and mayo. Not only does it add a little drama to dinner time, it’s energy-saving too: according to LG, the average family opens the fridge door as many as 32 times a day without a specific reason. Now you can save up to 41% in cold air loss.

2. Crush ice in an instant

The InstaView’s built-in ice dispenser is a home appliance hero. It can churn out ice cubes, crushed ice and chilled water in an instant, and its slim door-mounted design doesn’t eat into your freezer storage. The GSX 961NSAZ and GSX961MTAZ models don’t need to be plumbed in separately either, as other units typically do.

3. Keep your cool via the app

With the Smart ThinQ app you can keep tabs on your fridge from wherever you are. Planning a last-minute dinner party? Set the express freeze function on your way home, to make sure you have enough ice for cocktails. Heading into a heatwave, or a cold snap? Simply tap to tweak the temperature up or down a notch. And the smart diagnosis feature can help you address any issues (should they arise) before calling out a professional.

4. Ditch the defrost

Defrosting a freezer is one of the dullest domestic jobs around – and with the LG InstaView Door-in-Door Fridge Freezer it’s history. The multi-airflow system circulates cool air through vents on each level to regulate the temperature without building up ice, saving you a chore and ensuring you can use all of the available storage space at all times.

5. Keep your supplies super-organised

The InstaView GSX 961NSAZ and GSX961MTAZ fridge-freezers offer just over 600 litres of total storage, giving you plenty of space for family supplies. In addition to the usual shelves and door balconies, there’s also a wine rack designed to store up to four bottles at the optimal temperature of around 4°C, plus a utility box set to around 3°C – ideal for cooked meat and cheese.

6. Save energy

Alongside the energy-saving door-in-door feature, the LG InstaView Door-in-Door Fridge Freezer also boasts an advanced, highly efficient Inverter Linear Compressor. Over a 20-year lifespan it can cut energy consumption by as much as 32% compared to a basic fridge-freezer.

The LG InstaView GSX961NSAZ fridge freezer in shine steel (£1,799.99) and the LG InstaView GSX961MTAZ in black (£2,199.99) are part of Currys PC World’s Kitchen Envy collection, a range of aspirational appliances with high-tech features.
