[Media Event] LG shares its Latest Home Innovations

Attended the media preview on LG's latest home appliances with Jessie the other night, where they revealed quite a number of new innovative products in various catergories - Refrigerators; washing machines; and vacuum cleaners. Boasting state-of-the-art technology and designs that are as sophisticated as they are functional with better efficiency. :)

LG Refrigerators with Door-In-Door Innovation
Of all the many features in a refrigerator, LG highlighted to us their unique Door-in-Door™ feature. This innovation enables users to easily organise items with LG's Smart Storage System hence quickly and conveniently access to their favourite treats and commonly used ingredients with a simple push of a button (rather than having to open the main refrigerator compartment). This feature also reduces the escape of cold air by up to 41% compared to opening the usual fridge door. Most importantly, temperature rising (in the main compartment) is also cut by up to 47.8%, ensuring greater efficiency and allowing food to be kept fresher for a longer period of time. Quality guaranteed with a 10-year warranty.



Top Freezer with Door-In-Door

The one on the left - GF-D6011LB, while the white one on the right is yet to release.


The new Extra Space, a recessed area at the bottom of the main compartment, opens up new space in the fridge ideal for storing eggs and small food items such as cheese and sliced deli meats among others. It also incorporates the Folding Shelf, which conveniently folds away to make room for larger items like tall bottles or soup tureens. LG's compregensive organization system also extends to the freezer section's Multi Drawer Freezer and Sliding Shelf. On top of providing plenty of storage, the Sliding Shelf is easy to open and can safely support heavy items.


Built in with a linear piston drive instead of the conventional reciprocating drive, LG's advanced Inverter Linear Compressor generates less internal friction resulting in lower energy requirements and noise. Greater reliability and durability are achieved due to the reduction of friction points. On top of that, food stay fresher with an optimal temperature balance. The new top freezers employ LG's Inverter Compressor, which helps to lower energy comsumption by 36% and noise levels by 2dB.


The Upgraded HYGIENE FRESH+™ air purification system employs multi-layer filters and a proprietary fan to help sterilize and remove bacteria, viruses, mold spores and odors from the fridge's interior. The double photocatalyst and UV LED help to eliminate 99.999% bacteria while the double carbon deodorizers reduce the presence of acidic and alkaline odors. Their filters have a longer lifespan, and would not need replacement for several years which means more convenience and less maintenance cost for the consumer.

The top freezer Fresh 0 Zone is an enclosed space that prevents the smell of strongly scented foods from mingling with other items. Relatively cooler temperature than other compartments in the fridge minimizes temperature fluctuations, enabling food to retain its freshness for a longer period. The sealed section maintains a temperature of around 0°C - cold enough to keep food perfectly preserved without requiring the need for defrosting before cooking. In addition, the Multi Air Flow feature distributes cool air evenly throughout the fridge to further ensure food is kept fresh longer.


Compact on the outside but roomy inside. LG’s energy efficient refrigerators feature sleek and slender designs that give your kitchen an instant upgrade – and the space you need to store more!


Award Winning LG CORDZERO™ Vacuum Cleaner
LG's CordZero™ Canister, the CordZero™ Handstick, and the previously launched CordZero™ Bedding Cleaner and HOM-BOT SQUARE are the first premium cordless vacuum cleaner collection in the World.

LG’s CordZero™ collection offers a powerful and convenient cleaning experience with zero obstacles, zero limits and zero time wasted. A synthesis of excellent performance and design, LG’s CordZero™ recently received the 2015 Best of the Best Red Dot Design Award. LG’s superior cordless model makes cleaning hard-to-reach areas such as stairways and balconies a cinch. As outlet access is no longer needed, the vacuum can be used outdoors, and will even come in useful for cleaning the interior of a car.



The CordZero™ Canister makes cleaning so much easier, providing a strong, efficient and hassle-free performance. It has an innovative built-in lithium-ion battery PowerPack™ 80V, a high-efficiency battery offering powerful suction that can last for up to 40 minutes in regular mode. It also built-in with one-of-a-kind RoboSense™ technology, an Automatic Location Recognition technology and Active Following Wheel technology incorporate four interconnected sensors on the body and a handle to monitor and maintain a distance of 100cm from the user. Equipped with LG’s proprietary KOMPRESSOR™ technology, the world’s first motorized dust compression system that is able to suck up dust and dirt, compressing the collected debris into easy-to-manage wedges inside the vacuum’s bagless bin. These wedges can then be easily and hygienically disposed of. Also, CordZero™ Canister implements a HEPA 14 filter that traps 99.999% of potentially harmful dust particles and expels clean air to help keep the indoor environment clean. The HEPA 14 filter has a 5-star rating by SLG Prüf- und Zertifizierungs GmbH, a German certification and testing institute, and is also certified by the British Allergy Foundation (BAF). Backed by a 10-year warranty which is also applied in the CordZero™ Handstick giving the vacuum cleaner a pick-up rate of more than 96% (including pet food and lentil beans).

The CORDZERO™ Handstick provides convenient cleaning and long lasting suction power thanks to the Dual PowerPack™ (up to 60 mins runtime and comes with a replaceable lithium-ion dual battery pack), Smart Inverter Motor™ and Anti-Tangle Brush™ (Hassle-free cleaning with LG's motorized nozzle that prevents hairs from becoming tangled on the brush). Dual functionality means customers can use it as a stick-type cleaner with a full length handle or as a more portable hand-held unit. With its slim design, easy 180-degree swivel head and built-in crevice and brush tool, CordZero™ Handstick helps make cleaning small and tight spaces less of a chore.

The Smart Inverter Motor™ has a 9.3% better cleaning performance  than that of a conventional 2000 watt corded vacuum cleaner and on average 28% smaller, 22% lighter and 13% more efficient than conventional vacuum motors in canister models. It operates on frictionless magnetic power and has an extended operational lifespan of 1,000 hours. - Maximum suction, high efficiency and durability all into a compact size.

It also integrates with the powerful Jet Spray™ feature, which cleans clothes at a faster speed. Spraying water directly onto the load for a period of 120 seconds, Jet Spray™ enables TurboWash™ to fast forward an entire rinse cycle. With Jet Spray™, the WD-1410TS is able to bypass the lengthy rinsing stage that conventional machines rely on to get the job done.
