The time when refrigerators were a luxury that only a few people could afford, is now in the past. With changing times and perceptions and an increased spending parity, the refrigerator is now a common home appliance which is consigned to a corner in the kitchen. The LG GL-D191KCOQ 188L single door refrigerator is one such workhorse introduced to the market by LG, which is a trusted brand for home appliances.
It is a compact single-door refrigerator which does its job of keeping food fresh and liquids cooled, day in and day out, reliably. It conforms to LG’s stringent performance parameters and is backed by LG’s excellent support and service. The LG GL-D191KCOQ 188L single door refrigerator is available at a price of Rs. 13,550/- in online stores.
The LG GL-D191KCOQ is a compact single-door refrigerator made out of strong ABS plastic and painted to a high-gloss finish. The Coral Ornate colour is a dark red colour which shines under the glossy veneer. The door features a floral design on the top-right corner which spans the entire right side. It looks quite attractive. An indent runs vertically on the left side starting from the top and ending on the drawer of the base mount. The ‘Kurve’ type handle sits on top of this indent. It is painted in the same colour as the rest of the refrigerator and is framed by chrome accents. Just beside the handle is the lock which can be used to lock the refrigerator when required. The top and bottom edges of the refrigerator door have plastic inserts running the entire width of the door which is painted in a darker colour and make for nice design accents.
At the back-side of the LG GL-D191KCOQ, the cooling coils and the compressor lie exposed. This helps the compressor to maintain an even temperature and remain efficient as ever. On the inside, the temperature control knob is located beside the transparent freezer door. The refrigerator has two trays; the chiller tray and the vegetable tray. The vegetable tray has a capacity of 11L and it sufficiently deep to be of daily use. There are two shelves made of toughened glass which is capable of bearing a load of 175kg each as per LG’s internal test standards. These shelves can be configured in multiple combinations as required.
The top of the vegetable tray makes up the third shelf. There are two bottle tracks and three utility racks built into the refrigerator door. All the racks and shelves and trays inside are transparent and give the illusion of a bigger space than it actually is. The rubber legs of the refrigerator are hidden behind the base mount. It is a great design element which also holds a drawer which can be used to store non-refrigerable items like onions and potatoes. The LG GL-D191KCOQ weighs in at 42kg.
The LG GL-D191KCOQ carries a 3-star BEE Rating (2016) which says that it is one of the more energy-efficient refrigerators available in the market. It is powered by an energy-efficient compressor which saves on electricity with less consumption and efficient operation. 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. 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 low as 135V and as high as 290V, which means the refrigerator is protected from voltage fluctuations, which eliminates the need of an external stabilizer, thus ensuring stabilizer-free operation.
