Refrigerators are the most popular kitchen appliances made by LG, followed by ranges and dishwashers. LG also manufactures cooktops, wall ovens and microwave ovens. Many retailers, including Sears and Best Buy, offer kitchen packages that provide a discount on a three- or four-piece set of popular LG kitchen appliances.
LG is best known for mobile technology and home electronics, but the LG line of smart appliances garners equally impressive reviews. In April 2014, the LG Coaches Cook-Off featured a suite of popular LG kitchen appliances to kick off the NCAA Final Four games, including a super-capacity version of the company's top-rated French-door refrigerators and a single-oven electric range with an EasyClean feature.
The LG LFX28991ST led Consumer Reports' recommendations for French-door refrigerators in 2014 because of its energy efficiency and excellent temperature control. In electric range tests, LG took first place for both single- and double-oven models. The ovens perform well during baking and broiling, while the cooktops heat evenly and effectively at any temperature.
LG dishwashers are not as popular as the company's refrigerators and ranges but are often included in bundle packages. According to customer surveys by Consumer Reports, LG dishwashers need repairs more often than other leading brands as of 2015. The company's microwaves also miss the mark when it comes to performance in comparison to other manufacturers' products.
