Everybody knows that when you have good ice, you have good cocktails. But sometimes mucking around with ice molds at home is way more trouble than its worth.
This is where LG’s new InstaView Craft Ice™ comes into play. With LG’s latest collection of Instaview fridges, the fantasy of having easy, clear ice at home just become reality.
Now the LG’s InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerators have been out for a little while but the company has now pushed through an upgrade that enables them to make something called “Craft Ice.”
So what exactly does ‘craft ice’ mean? Well, go grab your rocks glass, cause the company says the fridge comes with “Dual ice makers with Craft Ice™ automatically create crushed, cubed and LG’s exclusive slow-melting round ice on-demand for upscale, craft drinks at home – without the work.”
Yep, you got it. The big news is that the fridge will automatically be making slow-melting round ice (measuring 2 inches in diameter) without the hassle of manually filling and freezing ice molds.
Now if that doesn’t sound good enough, the fridge will also store up to 25 ice spheres in the freezer drawer bin and it will keep auto-replenishing that number as you use each sphere.
Yes, LG is telling you to stay home and ‘be a baller’ as their Refrigerators with Craft Ice will definitely represent a game-changer for home entertaining.
Basically, the refrigerator can churn out three every 24 hours and features a dedicated area that can store up to 25 of them.
“LG is no stranger to offering first-to-market innovations that help make life good with forward-thinking technology for the home,” notes David VanderWal, senior VP of marketing.
“With the addition of LG Craft Ice to our award-winning InstaView Refrigerator Lineup, the next step in the evolution of home entertaining is here to aid consumers with useful features sure to impress guests and make hosting easier than ever.”
Notably, the balls are clear. Don’t expect them to be flawlessly crystal clear, but they’re still pretty damn clear, miles above anything else that easy to make on the consumer side.
Now bringing ice spheres to the home enthusiast doesn’t come cheap (the fridge will set you back around US$4,000), but then when you consider that domestic ice machines from companies such as True and Scotsman, will set you back a cool $2,000, at least, this is probably not a bad deal.
Also, aside from making the ice, LG’s InstaView Door-in-Door has a whole host of other features that actually make it a pretty good fridge as well.
It lets you look inside your refrigerator without ever opening the door, it has Door-in-Door® which offers easy access to food and an adjustable bin that fits snacks and drinks of all sizes. Not to mention keeping produce fresh two times longer.
