      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.

      This refrigerator works well but there are quite a few design flaws that should be addressed. The size of the appliance is quite large yet it is all shell. The interior lacks space and isn't very well designed. For example the shelves on the left door are very shallow and the top shelf is positioned in a way that makes it almost useless. In addition the in door water/ice feature needs some fixes. The precise fill feature is nice BUT you need to hold down the water button to keep filling. You can't just set the quantity and let it auto fill. Should you set the fill and accidentally let go of the button, it resets to zero instead of recalling where you left off. The water reservoir is too small 8 - you only get 8oz of cold or hot water. Had I known of these issues, I would not have purchased.

      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.

      I have no complaints at all about this refrigerator! It keeps everything ice cold! I don't know why everyone says it's noisy. I think it's very quiet for it's size! I would purchase it again!

      Space, Space, Space!

      By 

      from Newtown, CT, United States

      Comments about GE Cafe Stainless French Door Refrigerator:

      I have been using this refrigerator for about 7 months now and am extremely happy with it. Having the ice dispenser in the door allows for more space with in the body of the fridge. We have yet to max out the capacity in the fridge even during the holidays. Temp stays constant and the french doors allow access to food without opening up the whole fridge. The freezer holds more than I thought it would and it is easy to find what you're looking for. The additional top shelf baskets enhance this an allow me to keep my meats (in the bottom drawer) separate from other products (butter, herbs, ice cream etc) We love the visual and oral cues on the door water/ice dispenser. My elderly mother-in-law lives with us and these cues make it even easier for her to use the dispenser with confidence. We built a cabinet box around the fridge to give it a more built-in/finished look and are happy with the effect. I have not yet tested the hot water feature on the dispenser since we already have an instant-hot installed on the sink. For this reason I will rate the peformance a 4 until I have used that feature a few times.

      Fridge is beautiful and the interior lighting is great! The exterior water dispenser is great especially for water bottles and large pitchers. The door space however is lacking and makes it difficult to store condiments, etc.

      Spacious fridge that has enough room for all of my cake orders plus my everyday items. I'm a tea lover and the hot water dispenser is another fave! Oh, and the alarm is a life saver. It alerts me when I've left the door open in my haste. Best purchase ever!

          Comments about GE Cafe Stainless French Door Refrigerator:

          I am surprised at how much this holds, how well it is designed, and the special features I didn't discover until I had it installed and played around a bit. There's a USB port on the fridge so you can upload 90 photos to be displayed on the LCD screen. I got rid of my 5 gallon water dispenser because this offers a hot water option - it takes about 5 minutes for the first 10 oz to heat up, and then you can get another 10 oz heated in about a minute. I also appreciate the precise fill option for the water for when I am baking and need exact measurements. The freezer is cavernous - I can't imagine my 4 person family will fill it. I actually get a geeky sort of happiness when I go to the fridge and think, "Wow, I love my new fridge," and I've had it now for 4 months.
