The refrigerators have evolved over a period of last few decades to become a necessity in modern households. Gone are the days when it was considered a luxury which only a few people could afford. The Refrigerator is now just a regular home appliance serving its owners from the corner of the kitchen. The LG GL-B191KPZQ is a single-door compact refrigerator from LG’s extensive line-up with a capacity of 188L.

The LG GL-B191KPZQ is a single-door refrigerator made of strong ABS plastic and painted to a glossy finish, in this case, a glossy Gray color which mimics the look of steel. The Shiny Steel colour looks like a metal finish. The entire front face of the refrigerator is plain and free of any graphics. The recessed ‘Kurve’ type handle sits atop an indent which runs along the left edge of the refrigerator door. It is painted to match the colour of the refrigerator and is surrounded by chrome accents.
The top edge and the bottom edge of the door are fitted with plastic inserts of a darker colour which serves to enhance the look of the refrigerator. At the back, the cooling coils and the compressor are exposed unlike in some of the more expensive models. This allows for an even airflow to the compressor keeping it sufficiently cool. On the inside, the deep freeze compartment features a transparent door, which is an intelligent design. The knob for controlling the internal temperature sits right next to the freezer door. There are two trays in the refrigerator; the chiller tray and the vegetable tray.
The vegetable tray has a capacity of 11L. There are two shelves made of toughened glass. Each of them is able to handle a load of 175kg as per LG’s Refrigerator internal test standards. These shelves can be adjusted in multiple combinations as required. The top of the vegetable tray makes up a third, non-adjustable shelf. There are two bottle racks and three utility racks which can accommodate an egg tray in one of them. The refrigerator stands on four rubber feet which provide it with stability and grounding. It weighs in at 42kg.
The LG GL-B191KPZQ carries a certification of 3-star BEE rating (2016) which makes is one of the more energy-efficient refrigerators available in the market. At its heart is a Reciprocatory compressor which contributes to the efficiency while delivering optimum performance. This refrigerator features ‘Fastest in Ice Making’ technology which can make ice 20% faster with a specially designed and patented ice tray, without putting any extra load on the compressor. The ‘Moist Balance Crisper’ features a special lattice-type box cover which maintains moisture inside the vegetable tray at the optimum level by using the moisture evaporated from the stored food condensed on the lattice.
The Reciprocatory compressor has a better energy-efficiency ratio which enables it to operate at the voltage as low as 135V and as high as 290V, which negates the use of a separate stabilizer. It also features a removable anti-bacterial gasket which ensures a tight seal and thereby increase the efficiency by reducing consumption. Since it is removable, it can also be cleaned periodically to prevent the build-up of pathogens and bacteria.
