I needed a fridge to fit into my smaller kitchen cabinet opening. Also knew I wanted the stainless steel look without the hassle of fingerprints. Lastly I knew I wanted an ice/water dispenser. Those three qualifications narrowed the field down considerably. It was between the GE and Whirlpool. I read all on-line reviews and called my appliance repair man. Decided on the GE. I've now owned the fridge for a month. There were alot of comments on-line regarding how noisy it was, but I'm not experiencing that. Yes you can hear when the ice is made, but I did with my other fridge too, and it doesn't bother me. I love the cleansteel look. So glad I chose that. My fridge does not stand next to any other appliance so you can't really tell its not stainless steel, and I don't have to worry about the dirt/fingerprints,etc. Overall, I'm very pleased. Yes its smaller than what I'd have preferred, but our cabinet space limited that for us. The freezer space is particularly small, we have a spare freezer so not a problem for us, but could be for someone who doesn't. Replacement of the water filter is easy to do, although I think the cost is rather pricey at $45 each. Also, we did experience one minor issue initially. Do not install the filter prior to getting the air out of the water line, otherwise it gets clogged and both your water and ice dispenser will not work well. We learned that from calling GE, who was very helpful and sent us a replacement filter.

I purchased this refrigerator in April of 2012. The clean steel look is great, effortless to keep clean and holds magnets. My old Hotpoint, which I had for 24 years, had the same outer dimensions but was far roomier inside. This GE has shelves that are 17" wide and 16.5" deep with raised plastic 1" trim on each side, 2" wide front plastic trim and 1.5" trim in the back. This takes up valuable space. If an item sits at all on the trim in the front, it slides out of the unit when the door is opened. Items resting on the side trim tend to topple when items next to it are moved. The top shelf also loses additional space that is taken up by a large light bulb enclosure and a water filter. The two plastic bins at the bottom are amazingly tiny. This refrigerator is too small for a family. Next time I will know to measure the inside carefully! Also, although the digital temps read correctly, the interior and the contents always seems to be moist. I am not pleased with this model. I was told it may last about ten years.

Peace of mnd
from Seattle, WA
I bought this GE after doing some research and I am glad I did. My problem with my old refrigerator- which was only 8 years old, was that it was inconsistent: froze veggies sometimes and would not get cold enough to safely keep food like meat and dairy cold at other times. My new GE is perfect! Temperature remains constant and if it is a really hot day I just lower the temp 1 degree for peace of mind. Love it!
works as expected.

I like this water filter and ice dispenser. good bye for the money. Not sure how much will be different for refrigerator between brand. My condo came with this refrigerator as default. I like the size and function.

Great side by side with ice and water. Wish the ice wasn't so messy when it came out.
Great so far!!

I was pretty scared getting another GE fridge after the nightmare I had with my last brand new GE profile fridge. This fridge has been a breath of fresh air finally, it is much more spacious and easier to use than a french door style we had before. But the best thing is its quiet! I give it 4 starts because I am not sure this will last, still a little nervous.

We had an earlier, similar model that was part of our household for years. When it was time to replace it, replaced with the same updated refrigerator. That says a lot about the refrigerator.

We have had our fridge for a while now and it's been just great for us and the size of our family. It cleans up nicely and has stayed looking good.
