LG Debuts ‘Blast Chiller’ Fridge Feature At International CES


LG is unveiling an extralarge
capacity three-door refrigerator
(model LFX31935) this week at International
CES that features a proprietary
“blast chiller” feature.

The quick-chill technology allows
the 36-inch refrigerator to cool off a
12-ounce beverage can in less than five
minutes, compared with the 40 minutes
required by a typical refrigerator, even
within in the freezer compartment, LG

The innovation is made possible by
a “jet flow and swirling structure” and
dedicated air supply duct that does not
impact the performance of the main refrigerator
or freezer section, the company said. The Blast Chiller compartment
itself can accommodate two cans of
soda or a bottle of wine.

LG said a 23 percent reduction
in insulation thickness affords the
LFX31935 nearly 20 percent more interior
space than other 36-inch refrigerators
on the market, making it among the
largest capacity models in that size.

Other features include LG’s streamlined
“Slim SpacePlus” ice-making
system, a patented linear compressor,
dual evaporators that react quickly to
changes in temperature and humidity,
strategically place vents, and forced
air circulation to help remove food

Returning to LG’s CES booth this
year is a robotic vacuum cleaner. This
latest model, the LrV5900 Hom-Bot, incorporates advanced dual-eye mapping
navigation and ultrasonic and infrared
sensors to identify obstacles in real
time. The machine uses a long-life cycle
lithium-polymer battery, and reduced
noise levels that have been lowered to
60dB (IEC).
