There are a few ways to tell if someone is rich. If you know someone who attended that controversial Trump fundraiser where tickets were $250,000, that person is probably pretty rich. If you know someone who tried to attend Fyre Fest and thought it looked fun, that person is also probably (unfortunately) rich.
So, it goes without saying that if you know someone who thinks that buying a $4,399.99 fridge for their hummus and Cheesecake Factory leftovers is necessary and in the realm of reasonable purchases, congrats, you know another rich person.
Luckily for them, LG has just revealed a new product that might give people serious fridge-envy.
The Fridge Big Leagues
For most people, their Frigidaire might chill their bell peppers and onions to a decent crisp. However, that fridge doesn’t come with an ice maker that churns out “craft ice” and it probably isn’t Wi-Fi enabled. The LG LRFVS3006S comes with all of the bells and whistles that justify the price tag.
The fridge features a trendy French door design and has a “Super-Capacity” 30 cu.ft. interior. Consumers can use it to chill pretty much anything they might need. Or, if going by the picture on the LG site, shrimp cocktails, vegetables, a pitcher of lemonade, various unwrapped hunks of cheese, only two cocktails, and a sh*t ton of olives.
To see all of that without opening the fridge, owners can simply knock twice on the door and LG’s “Instaview” will instantly reveal everything inside.
Craft Cocktail Ice Balls
The biggest draw of the LRFVS3006S is its craft cocktail ice machine. “LG’s exclusive Craft Ice™ slow melting round ice maker automatically makes upscale craft ice at home without the work,” coos the LG site. “No more time consuming molds that only produce one or two at a time. Give your beverages the perfect ice for next level entertaining, from craft cocktails & whiskey to soft drinks, lemonade, even iced coffee.”
Along with the craft cocktail balls, the LRFVS3006S also dispenses regular, boring, basic cubed and crushed ice. Why bother, though? If a fridge makes huge balls of ice, there’s really no going back. For $4,000, it is the least the LRFVS3006S could do.
The next step for the fridge industry will be having it cook meals on the fly. For now, consumers will have to be content with craft cocktail ice balls.
