      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 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.

          We love the space, lighting, variety of shelving. Dislike the Ice maker and the water dispenser. Not enough ice, clumps, water is slow to come out of dispenser, overall it's a great fridge. Love the digital display for the slide show with our own pics, and measures the water by ounces is nice. Hot water dispenser is really a cool feature.

          Comments about GE Cafe Stainless French Door Refrigerator:

          Very beautiful!!! It is a work of art but has some annoying quirks. They are engineering quirks, not the products fault. The hot water feature is limited to 10 ounces of hot water. Doesn't sound bad until you need more than that and you have to wait another 3 minutes for it to hear another 10 ounces. We do use the hot water feature daily for our dehydrated dog food as it calls for warm water. It is very convenient! The buttons on the panel have painted on indicators and the paint has worn off of the hot water button. We know where the hot water button is but guests won't. The drawers cannot be opened without opening both front doors which is very annoying. I'd split the drawers into 3 drawers across so you could open the drawers on the sides with one door open. Runs a lot but is super quiet. Love the door open chime. Had to have the water dispenser door replaced 3 times due to ripples in the stainless but GE customer service wouldn't quit until we were happy. I would like to see the water auto fill option put on this product. Stinks to sit there and fill a coffee pot. Love the space in the front to fill large bottles...

          Comments about GE Cafe Stainless French Door Refrigerator:

          Brand new frig that did not work when I got it home.Did not make ice, couldn't get water hot or any type. Took two visits from GE serviceman and the ordering of a new circuit board and entire control facing. They replaced the paddle switch twice and it still did not work. The service man had to jury rig the paddle switch to get the frig to work. Works fine now but makes an annoying ratteling noise. Very disappointed in the performance and very annoyed by the ratteling noise.

          I purchased the refrigerator a year ago. I love the appearance of the refrigerator. I love being able to view my fruits and vegetables without opening the drawers. The freezer is very spacious. After a year I have not used the hot water feature, it just seems easier to use the microwave.
