Refrigerators have evolved since their invention back in the 1910’s. That was the time it was considered a luxury for a select few. But now it has become a common home appliance which is an extremely important part of the modern kitchen. The LG Gl-B201AGHP is one such workhorse from LG’s line-up of built-for-hard-work refrigerators. It is a compact single-door refrigerator which does it job reliably and efficiently.

With this review, we aim to find out just how reliable and efficient this refrigerator is. The LG GL-B201AGHP is available at a price of Rs. 15,000/- in online stores.
The LG GL-B201AGHP is compact single-door refrigerator made of strong ABS plastic and painted to a high gloss. The Graphite Heart is a nice Gray colour with a slight tint of brown in it. It looks like gunmetal under all that glossy veneer. The door has a painted floral design on the left side which gives it an elegant look. The door has its edges curved back in a smooth flow which makes it look like it is a part of the rest of the refrigerator. The ‘Ariana’ type handle sits in a notch carved out of the refrigerator door on the left side. It is painted the same colour as the rest of the body is and it is framed by chrome accents. Below the handle, there is a built-in lock which locks the door securely when the occasion calls for it. At the back of the LG GL-B201AGHP, the cooling coils and the compressor are exposed.
This allows for better air circulation around the compressor and helps it in maintaining an efficient temperature around it. Inside the refrigerator, the temperature control knob sits beside the transparent freezer door. There are two shelves in the refrigerator which are made of toughened glass having a load-bearing capacity of 175kg each, as per LG’s internal test parameters. The top of the vegetable tray makes up the third shelf. There are two trays in the refrigerator the chiller tray and the vegetable tray.
The vegetable tray is deep and has an ample capacity of 14L. There are three utility racks and two bottle racks built into the door. All the trays, shelves and racks included in the refrigerator are transparent which gives an airy feeling inside the refrigerator even when it is full. The LG GL-B201AGHP stands on four rubber feet which provide it with stability and grounding. The review of the design clearly points to the clever culmination of form and factor which come together to form a harmonious design with utility.
The LG GL-B201AGHP is certified with a 4-star BEE rating which makes it one of the most energy-efficient refrigerators available out there. It is powered by an energy-efficient compressor which saves electricity with reduced consumption. It features the Power Cut EverCool Technology which retains coolness for up to 9 hours and keeps fruits, vegetables & other food cool and fresh during power cuts. It features ‘Fastest in Ice Making’ which makes ice 20% faster, with a specially designed and patented ice tray, without putting extra load on the compressor. The Moist Balance Crisper ensures that the vegetables stored do not become dry due to lack of moisture. It condenses the evaporated moisture from stored food on the lattice, maintaining the correct balance of moisture in the box,
thereby ensuring that they remain fresh for a longer period of time. It features unique dual-purpose egg-trays which can double as ice trays. Internal cooling temperature can be maintained and adjusted manually with a rotary knob. The removable anti-bacterial gasket ensures a tight seal, thereby maintaining the internal temperature at optimum levels and saving energy. The energy-efficient compressor can operate at voltages as far apart as 135V and 290V, which means the refrigerator is protected from voltage fluctuations, which eliminates the need of an external stabilizer, thus ensuring stabilizer-free operation.
