Product Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 91 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Purchased and was hesitant about the lower freezer but we love it! It has a lot more room than anticipated. Some reviews have complained about the noise; we have not noticed any of that. It appears to be operating quietly and efficiently. Would highly recommend to anyone! Love the "Clean Steel" color; similar to Stainless Steel without the fingerprints! GE got this part right!! 2/24/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by GESlateHappy Really love this entire series, I have the refrigerator, range, microwave and dishwasher. Looks great in my kitchen and I bought it for the slate color - several people have said they really like it - those of us that are not stainless steel fans. Refrigerator has great performance, plenty of room and storage and easy to use. Very quiet operation, makes more "noises" than my old refrigerator but I think that has to do with the icemaker in the door. 3/15/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! After looking and comparing different makes and models settled on this unit! Absolutely love it! Fantastic features and very big! Dual ice maker comes in handy when we have a crowd over. Excellent price and product! 3/27/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by GE-All around GOOOD..........................for Everyone (GE) This fridge has done well for us so far. Had a little bit of a problem getting it through the door on delivery. They had to take the doors off. It is large enough to store whatever you want and the double Ice maker option is awesome. Great for entertainment.. I bought the extended warranty just in case. Freezer drawers are large and the ice compartment is also. ...can't complain...very satisfied so far. 4/3/13
