Premium refrigerators and washing machines manufactured by South Korean consumer appliance maker LG Electronics Inc. have been recently named the best products of 2016 by online consumer magazines for home appliances in Europe, the company said Thursday.
British online magazine Trusted Reviews picked LG's front-loading washing machine with the model name FH4A8FDH2N, which delivers cleaning and drying in one continuous cycle, as the best home appliance of this year, LG said in a statement.
The washing machine was recognized for its excellent performance in washing and drying as well as higher energy efficiency, according to the statement.
Separately, a magazine published by a consumer advocacy group named "ZPS," gave LG's other front-loading washing machine with the model name F1495BD the highest marks. The Slovenian magazine cited the direct drive motor in the washing machine, which is far more efficient than a conventional belt drive motor, for its rating.
Another LG washing machine with the model name F1495BD also received a top score in a review by Czech consumer magazine "dTEST," LG said.
LG's two-door refrigerator with the model name GSL761PZXV earned the top score in a review by Portuguese consumer magazine "DECO PRO TESTE," LG said.
Kim Young-soo, head of LG's research center for home appliances, said the company will continue to make efforts to increase sales in the European market. (Yonhap)
