Answer: 
Not really. They'll fit if you lay them flat. The top freezer drawer is too low to stand them on end. Unless it's a small pizza.

I just purchased this model but haven't received it yet. The sales person told me that the ice maker fills a bin in the freezer as well as provides ice to the door. Is this not correct? How would you get ice for a cooler?

Answer: 
When you open the freezer door, there is a latch to get to the ice maker. Open the latch, pull out the bin, dump ice into cooler, replace bin. Then go to the local gas station, and buy a bag of ice, as you will need to make ice about 450 times to get enough ice for even a small cooler. This fridge does not make a lot of ice, at all.

26.8 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator in Stainless Steel is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 631.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from We've been happy with the performance of this fridge. As the main refrigerator for our house, this unit has received daily, almost continuous use since we got it over two years ago. It has been a good refrigerator so far with only a few minor issues. What’s been good: 1. The controls are easy to access and change (temp, ice settings, freezer, etc). 2. The water filter is a nice thing to have and is easily accessible. However, it does take a bit of pressure to pull it out and properly seat a new one. 3. The freezer is roomy, can hold a lot of items and has a handy shelf for storing easily accessible items on the top. 4. The shelving system is easily removed and easily adjusted for different heights. This is the same for the door shelves. 5. The ice maker is quick to make ice, especially on the ice plus setting. 6. The shelf that retracts is also a handy feature which allows for taller items. 7. The controls are lockable which is nice to keep the little ones from adjusting the settings. What could be improved: 1. The refrigerator is fairly loud when the compressor is running. I have pulled it out several times and cleaned the dust out but it has always been loud. 2. The door shelves can easily break (they’re just plastic) if they are slightly overloaded (as we found out after we apparently put one too many items in the door). 3. It seems like the air isn’t distributed evenly as items on the top shelf in the back can easily freeze. 4. The stainless steel doors are not magnetic and so attaching the children’s’ drawings requires tape. 5. The ice can sometimes get stuck in the dispenser which requires opening it up and picking it out. I have noticed though that this only happens if the ice maker has not been regularly used.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different kind of storage if you're new to French Door refrigerators.... We just got our fridge & so far I have to admit, it's taking some getting used to. When we were shopping for refrigerators in the store, I never even thought about where to put my butter. But there isn't a compartment for butter like there is in the door of most refrigerators! Also, the platter tray is a nice idea...but really, you have to use it for your deli meats & cheeses because there is no separate drawer for those items. I guess if you DO use it to store a party platter, you'll have to take out everything else that you've been keeping there. I'm also struggling with not having enough door space for all our condiments. Just a few things to keep in mind if you're going from a standard fridge to a French door model like we are. I'm not sure I like it....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fine for 5 years and then..... This was delivered to us in Feb. 2011. All was well until it was a hair over 5 years old and then the freezer iced over, the ice maker quit working, and within days the entire unit stopped working. After our repairman came to check it out, we discovered that the compressor went out. This is apparently a common occurrence. I actually spoke to 2 other people who experienced the same issue right at 5 years. The compressor is under warranty, so we contacted LG. We have not yet received approval for the part. Our repairman said that he is not a fan of LG because of the problems getting these parts and the expense of putting them in, only to have it be some sort of electrical issue. We have given up. We need a refrigerator, not coolers with ice. New fridge (not an LG) coming tomorrow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BUYER BEWARE! Most likely you are going to love this product, I did until it broke! The $2000.00 ... BUYER BEWARE! Most likely you are going to love this product, I did until it broke! The $2000.00 plus that I spent when I purchased it down the tube in just under 6 years. What a waste. I bought this because I was impressed with the features just under 6 years ago. I loved the construction, form and functionality of the unit until.....This past June the freezer stopped freezing which also stops the ice from making. The outside panel was very hard to read as well. Service (With an LG truck and logo) guy came and changed the compressor and the front panel. $450.00. It takes the technician 3 or more days to get you in for an appointment so you can count on everything going bad. Once everything was replaced ran great for 1 month. Called LG again. Now this is July. I then waited 5 days for the same guy to come back out. Lost all food again. He stated that he just needed to add some more refrigerant. Great! Worked well again for another month and low and behold Aug. same thing...Lost all freezer food. Same guy comes out and adds more refrigerant. Same thing worked fine for about a month and low and behold... Sept. same thing... Bye bye food from freezer. 5 days later same guy comes out and stated he never notice but there was a hole in the line so he soldered it and upon leaving said that he will not be back if something happens again. So he gave up. Told me that since this has happened so many times I need to call LG to have them reimburse me for the food that i lost because he is LG's certified repairman for my area and all the service calls are documented. Well that never happened LG does not reimburse for food lost. OK, so now October.....Same thing, I called LG and even though I paid for the work initially there was nothing that they could do to help. Well they never fixed it right to begin with from June but now I would have to pay to have it fixed. CUSTOMER SERVICE AND REPAIR IS A JOKE. Plus you can not understand what they are saying so ask for a supervisor and than you may get someone that is in this country. They weren't able to help me anyways. I really wish that they would have stood by their repair. Just purchased a Whirlpool maybe since that is mostly made in America I will have better luck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointed with LG Purchased a lfx28978st in 2011 for a remodeled kitchen. In July of 2015 the icemaker quit working. Discovered that the freezer temperature was not getting cold enough.(Did not get this information from LG customer service either) When I called LG customer service one of the first questions was do you have an extended warranty. The smart diagnosis system was of no help to me. When I finally got someone who could access it they did not share any information with me. Called the nearest LG listed repairman who told me that their experience had been that this module has a flaw that can't be fixed. The Home Depot who I purchased it through said LG did not have a service rep in this area. I will not consider or recommend LG after this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for price range We were wanting a new fridge and I wanted the french door style to replace our side by side. I read all kinds of reviews first. I am so glad we didnt spend the extra money on the one with 2 ice makers. That was the main complaint I read was it didn't make enough ice. We have 2 teenage boys with friends over all the time. We never have a problem with ice. I keep the bottom ice storage filled. Every few nights I check the bottom ice bucket to make sure it is full, during the weekend I check it each night. If it needs it I'll dump ice from the ice maker that way it will be full again the next morning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I love it! Almost a 5 star but have that it long enough to make sure there are no issues. It isn't loud. So spacious inside the fridge and freezer! Love the ability to have a wine bottles standing up on the shelf. Did notice the one door is slightly higher than the other and almost sent it back for replacement but all instore models are the same and it doesn't hurt the seal or anything for that matter. The left crisper got a little too cold when on vegetable setting so moved it to the middle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice refrigerator I am still getting used to the freezer on the bottom. I have not figured out how to move the shelves so they sit right. Overall I really like the refrigerator and am really glad we bought it. It was delivered when they said it would be and the men were very nice and got the refrigerator all set up. They explained about the water and the ice and in about 4 hours I was ready to put food into the refrigerator.I am very pleased with the refrigerator!
