The LG GL-B181RRLM is a single-door refrigerator made from strong ABS plastic and painted with a glossy finish. The Ruby Luster colour is a deep red colour and the glossy finish brings out the colour beautifully. There is no printed design on the door. But there is a big indent which runs down almost 3/4th of the way down the door giving it a unique look. The handle sits at the top of the door and it is moulded in the edge. It is painted a darker red to make it stand out and give visual cues of its utility. At the back, the cooling coils and the compressor lie exposed. They are not concealed like they are on some more expensive models.
On the inside, the door of the freezer is transparent giving it a different look. There are two trays the chiller and the crisper. There are two shelves made of strong load-bearing wire. The positions of these shelves can be changed as required. The top of the crisper (vegetable tray) makes for a third shelf. There are two non-adjustable bottle racks that can accommodate tall bottles quite easily. There are two utility trays and one egg tray located in the door. The LG GL-B181RRLM stands on four plastic feet which give it stability and grounding. The refrigerator door can be locked using the lock located on the left edge of the refrigerator door. It weighs in at 42 kg.
The LG GL-B181RRLM is certified with a 3-Star BEE rating (2016). It is powered by a reciprocatory compressor coupled with other performance features like Fastest Ice Making and Moist Balance Crisper. There is a manual knob for maintaining and adjusting the internal cooling temperature. The thick Puf insulation and the removable anti-bacterial gasket ensure a tight seal and maintain the inner temperatures at optimum levels and thereby saving energy.
The door-open alarm is not included, which is a pity because an open refrigerator door wastes energy and increases electricity consumption. The rest of the features work as they should. The built-in stabilizer protects the LG GL-B181RRLM from voltage fluctuations.
