I was very excited when I saw this model with the hot water dispenser. I am a tea and hot chocolate drinker and was thrilled I could just dispense the hot water right from my refrigerator! Unfortunately, the product was so brand new most stores didn't have any to look at, there were no reviews posted and the sales people had no familiarity with the product. The only reason we ignored all that (which we normally would not have) was because we got such a great deal on it. Looking back now I wish we had gone for a different model. I will start with the positives; this is a beautiful looking fridge. While I would have liked the option to purchase it in black, the stainless steel has a very high-end appearance. The display panel and buttons are all clearly visible and easy to use. The freezer is VERY spacious and I love the upper drawers to help organize smaller items. The interior of the fridge is also very roomy. There is a ton of room in the bins on the insides of the doors, the glass shelves are easily adjustable and you can store 2 liter bottles of soda without difficulty. One of the organizers in the door also has a shelf that extends down from it and can hold a carton of eggs. Even the door with the ice maker (which comes out smoothly with one hand, should you want to quickly dump some in a bucket) has room for storing smaller items. The crispers are nice and deep and keep the fruits and veggies very fresh. I love the flexibility of the wide drawer under the crispers, and how you can adjust the temperature with the touch of a button. The water filter is in the door and is super easy to change. The water dispenser and ice dispenser work fine, though if you are looking for a fridge that makes enough ice to fill a cooler, this is not it. You can fill an ice bucket, but no more than that. Now for the negatives... Two things I do not like about this fridge. Unfortunately the hot water dispenser is one of them. First cup of hot water for the day takes 5 minutes to heat up. If you use it immediately after it can take anywhere from 1:30 to 3 minutes to warm a second cup. I tried the soup setting for soup and it was not hot enough, so basically I use the tea setting for anything I need hot water for. It also only heats a maximum of 10 ounces at a time. So if you are making tea for two, or hot chocolate for a couple of cold kids, someone is going to be waiting for their cup! If it wasn't for the fact that the tea does taste better with the hot water poured over the bag, instead of nuked in the cup, I probably wouldn't use it very often. The second negative is the "precise fill" option. Yes it is nice to be able to push the button and get exactly 2 cups of water. What would be even nicer would be if you did not have to stand there holding the pot and pushing against the dispenser to get the water. So they got that one half right. Overall I really love this refrigerator, which is why I gave it four stars, and had I not bought the model with the hot water dispenser I probably would have given it 5.

I was very excited to have this fridge along with the rest of the GE Cafe series in our new house. What a huge disappointment when it stopped cooling after 3 months. Since we do not have a company that directly works with GE we ended up having to pay to have this fixed. GE would only cover a portion of the cost to fix it. This is the second house that we have purchased GE products for so I was excited to have even better GE products than the last house. What was I thinking! The features it comes with are great. We love the hot water option. The inside temperature of the fridge is not on the display panel at all times. This caused a delay in figuring out that the cooling system wasn't working. I have a feeling it only worked for the first month or two we moved into our new house. Very Disappointed! I was a loyal customer.

Extremely roomy

By 

from Swansea, MA, United States

Comments about GE Cafe Stainless French Door Refrigerator:

Had a side by side but didn't like the amount of freezer room. This has so much more usable room in both refrigerator and freezer. Love the draws and all the different ways I can set up shelves.

Nothing Special. Already needed a service call

By 

from Bay Area, CA

Comments about GE Cafe Stainless French Door Refrigerator:

While the refrigerator look nice, I am constantly getting frozen items in my upper compartment even though the temperature is set for 39. Recently, the fan in the upper compartment went out so everything in the bottom drawer was frozen solid and everything on the top two shelves had to be thrown away.

very nice purchase

By 

from PA

Comments about GE Cafe Stainless French Door Refrigerator:

I haven't really figured out the best way to clean this stainless steel refrigerator and my husband thinks it makes a little more noise than he would like but we do love the options (pics, hot water, precise fill) on this refrigerator and the ice maker makes plenty of ice. We are satisfied with our purchase.

Works Well

By 

from Olney, MD, United States

Comments about GE Cafe Stainless French Door Refrigerator:

This appliance is a nice enhancement to our kitchen. The one drawback I have found is that the holding capacity on the doors is limited. So things like dressings, ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard need to be kept in the main body of the refrigerator and are more easily lost.

3 refridgerators delivered before I got this one

By 

from California, United States

Comments about GE Cafe Stainless French Door Refrigerator:

This refridgerator has performed badly. Runs all the time, ice maker had to be replaced and doors adjusted because it wasn't sealing properly. Had to call for service and I have only had it 3 1/2 months.
