LG Craftice Refrigerator CES 2020

Spherical ice that melts slowly

The company plans to showcase a refrigerator that produces ice in speherical shape. LG informed that this ice melts slowly. This refrigerator will first be rolled out in USA followed by other global markets.

“A helpful ally when entertaining friends and family, the stunning CES 2020 Innovation award-winning InstaView with craft ice is the first refrigerator in the world with a built-in ice maker that produces spherical ice which melts much more slowly,” read LG’s official statement.

Second generation ThinQ technology

In 2020, LG will also be upgrading its top-of-the-line InstaView refrigerators with second generation ThinQ technology. Food items placed inside or removed from the refrigerator, including the door-in-door and crisper drawers, will be tracked with advanced vision and artificial intelligence for real-time inventory of what’s inside at any given moment.

“With this information, the new LG InstaView ThinQ fridge will be able to offer helpful meal suggestions based on available ingredients. The smarter technology will even alert homeowners when they’re running low on items and suggest options for reordering them, long before you arrive home to find out that you’re out of eggs,” read LG’s official statement.

It continued, “The smarter 2020 LG InstaView’s transparent front panel does more than just let users peer inside without opening the door and letting cold air escape. The panel doubles as a 22-inch display to browse the internet and watch cooking videos via Wi-Fi without a separate smartphone or tablet.”
