    What is the deal with the LG smart fridge?

    A family friend recently got one. I was looking at it. I mean the thing is pretty cool for what it is but it is a bit much for me. The thing that I do not for the life of me understand is that the fridge will alert you on your phone if you leave the door open. Why would it not just be designed to close itself after being open too long?

    What is the deal with the LG smart fridge?-dumbshit-png

    Smart fridges have been around since the 90's at least, and I just don't get them at all. I haven't seen a single function on them that i'd want or use. Who doesn't close the door on their fridge? Even if EVERYTHING in your fridge went bad once because you left it open, would that justify the extra expense of a smart fridge and the hassle of setting up that app? Would you use the screen to make a shopping list or would you rather just write it down? You can't carry the fridge to the store and check the list anyway (I guess the list syncs onto your phone or something?). It's a TON of expense and hassle/extra steps for something as simple as buying groceries.

    I didn't know this has been a thing for so long. I am with you though. I just don't see the point. I don't even use my phone to make lists or anything. I still use a physical calendar and planner. I like to write down what I need to get as well. It is almost taking away people's need to remember which is kind of scary considering things like Alzheimer's and dementia are on the rise.

    I've always been jealous of American fridges (here comes Zemekis' "anything you can do I can do better" message) because my fridge is a piece of crap. Or rather, fridge-freezer. Sure, it works, but it's so easy for the freezer door to become a little bit loose and then it all ices up.

    Otherwise it's just barebones. You'll specifically see sections for "American fridges" at retailers. I love the way they open from both sides and the modern look they have. Too bad my apartment's too small.

    As for smart fridges, I'd never heard of them. But I'll have to admit that I'm a sucker for home automation. It does seem gimmicky so like you I wouldn't pay a lot more for one.

    Have a gander lol



    We have all different kinds of fridges here. Mini ones, tall thin ones, fat ones. We have the ones that are standard with the small freezer on top with two separate doors. Those are always the cheapest. The side by sides are usually second to those in terms of expense where the freezer makes up about a third of the entire space, then you have the ones with the freezer on the bottom which are typically the most expensive.
