Our ancestors buried their food under the snow as a refrigeration method. However, modern humans wanted more, and numerous inventors in the 1800s worked hard to find a practical way to refrigerate food.

Thanks to their efforts, years later, we're witnessing the most futuristic refrigerators in our homes today. 

The smart refrigerators that we now have are connected to the internet. The majority of them come with an app that you can install on your mobile or other devices. With it, you can control your refrigerator remotely.

Unlike the old refrigerators, these keep you from overbuying groceries because you already know what’s inside the fridge and what’s expired. They prevent maintenance problems and are energy-efficient and environment-friendly. 

In light of that, this refrigerator review will walk you through 5 of the best smart refrigerators, their key features, and the respective refrigerator prices, so you can make an informed decision. 

1)   LG InstaView Slim French Door Refrigerator

Does the French door ring a bell? 

As the name suggests, with just 2 knocks, the sleek mirrored glass panel of the LG InstaView Door-in-Door™ refrigerator illuminates and provides you with a full view of the easy access compartment. 

Therefore, without even opening its door, you know what’s inside and what you’re running out of. Plus, not opening the refrigerator doors often, exceedingly reduces the cold air loss. 

More importantly, its inverter Linear Compressor saves up to 32% of energy and provides faster and balanced cooling for every nook and cranny in the fridge. Not only that, the resilience and optimal temperature control to keep your veggies garden-fresh for longer shouldn’t be overlooked.

If you have a smaller kitchen, this compact and space-saving refrigerator design will help you revamp your kitchen with a modern touch.

If you’re hunting for a smart refrigerator that also gives off a conventional vibe, Twin Cooling Plus™ Top Mount Freezer is for you. 

Its independent cooling system maintains the proper temperature and 70% of humidity inside compared to a conventional Top Mount Freezer, which is 30%.

The power-efficient LED lighting is another pro. 

This double-door fridge features an Anti-Bacteria Protector and an Activated Carbon filter, which keep the fridge clean and help fend off bacteria. Besides, the fridge and the freezer have separate air flows to prevent odors from passing between.  

With 5 conversion Modes including Freezer-Fridge, Energy Saving, Vacation, Fridge Max, and Mini mode, you can either turn your freezer into a fridge for your storing needs or switch off the fridge compartment when you’re off for a long vacay. 

What’s more, the Digital Inverter Technology automatically adjusts the compressor speed for 7 levels depending on the cooling demand. This not only saves energy, but also turns the noise down, and skyrockets its durability.
