I'll start with the exterior of the new counter dept French Door Cafe Refrigerator. It is great looking (leaving out the sides). It appears well built and solid. Moving it around on it's casters forward and back is very easy. It's so easy you need to remember once in place to lower it's feet. If not it can be moved opening a door.....The SS looks to be quality SS. For others like me. I have 5 year old Cafe gas range and microwave. To my eyes at least. The color of the SS on the new Refrigerator is slightly less brushed looking and slightly not as bright. I think it looks slightly better. It is hard to tell the difference so they match up well. Also if you want a red Cafe logo to match your other older Cafe appliances. Contact GE and send them your refrigerator S/N. They will mail you one out with instructions. The one thing I would have preferred is SS sides. The dark grey looks ok but SS would have made it a lot nicer looking and high end. At least make it an option for those of us wanting SS sides......

The Self close upper doors and lower freezer door work great. They appear solid and well built. No frost, condensation or dripping water from them. You will though most likely have to tweek the upper door alignment. Others might not notice looking at them but these things I do. GE gives you a template of .6 inch. I made myself a wood shim that made that job easier....

Next I'll go to the LCD screen. The picture feature is wonderful. If I have a knock on the screen the flowing water picture and as you toggle through the functions. It looks dull and boring. Also although it's a small thing, things like the time and date etc would have been useful if included. But the functions are easy to understand and hit.....

The hot water feature works as advertised. Same as precise fill. I just wish both were fully automatic and that auto fill that's on some GE Profile Refrigerators was also included....

The full width temperature control drawer seems to have very accurate temperatures for each item selected. The mulit color LED's are cool. You will find yourself going back and forth between colors just for fun. After a item like cheese is selected with its matching LED light color. After a few seconds it colored LED fades away to the normal white colored one. Same with opening the Refrigerator door. The full length drawer is lit with it's selected color then fades away. The Refrigerator upper and lower sections are both bright and well lit....

Storage bins and shelves are also well laid out. I like the glass shelves. The plastic ones though I wish were thicker. I don't intend to bust one and see what it would take to do that. But thinker ones would make me feel better.....

Turbo Freeze and chill work as advertised....

I have horrible tasting water. The water filter actually made my water taste good. There is also a reminder when to replace that and the odor filter....

I have had no problems with the ice maker. No jams or leeks. The crushed ice or cubes come out like they should......

The Refrigerator is also quiet ranging from dead silent to a humming type noise......

The overall temp of the freezer and refrigerator are also accurate.....

Lastly. About the ratings. There was no very good option. It just goes from good to excellent. So my appearance and value ratings would have been very good as would my overall rating. To me excellent is the best you can expect. I would have given excellent to appearance had SS sides been included. Excellent to value had SS sides and auto fill been included. Then overall would have been excellent. But I can recommend this Refrigerator to Cafe appliance owner's. Or to those just wanting a great looking , functional French door Refrigerator.......

Noisy and poorly made

Well, I've only had the fridge for 1 day, and here's my list of complaints so far. Things aren't looking good for this fridge. I've never hated something so quickly.

A lot of people complained about the noise... I didn't think much of it when reading the reviews, but now I regret that I should have. Others have said this already: that it's normal, that it sounds different because of the variable-speed compressor. However, there's no excuse for it to be so loud.

I mean, people stress over 1 or 2 dB of difference in dishwasher noise. (I personally think that's silly.) But, the point is, you can get the loudest dishwasher on the planet and it would be quieter than this fridge. If you get this fridge, don't stress over how loud your dishwasher might be. This fridge is loud, and it runs pretty much constantly, so it'll drown out any noise in your kitchen.

Also worth mentioning is that the hot water dispenser is flaky at best. I've tried to make hot water 3 times, and 2 out of the 3 times, the fridge comes back with the dreaded "Hot Water Disabled" error message. Google this; others have had this problem. So I have to go to the panel and cycle the circuit breaker to get hot water to work.

The stainless steel is also quite cheap for a Cafe--it's something I'd expect on the mainline GE. It's the thin, shiny, with lots of coarse grain, nothing like more polished SS found in higher-end appliances.

And, just after one day, the cover on the touch panel for the temperature-drawer bin has already started peeling off.

Comments about GE Cafe GE 36" Cafe Series French Door Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We were impressive with this fridge and how convenient it is to give you visibility of avery single item inside. Great design, flexible.
Only issue we have is that ice machine has very small capacity and get stuck frequently..
Also our lower long drawer has an issue with the metal decorative strip
and we need to contact GE for replacement..

Comments about GE Cafe GE 36" Cafe Series French Door Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Keeps food fresh. Fairly easy to clean. Probably wish we had new stainless finishes that get fewer fingerprints but it does not smudge too badly. Love the hot water dispenser. Ice maker so so but do not use a lot. Well designed fridge.

Comments about GE Cafe GE 36" Cafe Series French Door Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

The interior of the refrigerator is well done. Nicely placed lights with shelves that are highly adjustable was a win. However the exterior is difficult to maintain and clean. The refrigerator noise is louder than expected. After 16 months of operation, the coils in the freezer froze up and the freezer had to be defrosted manually.

Nice refrig but....

By

Comments about GE Cafe GE 36" Cafe Series French Door Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

Renovated kitchen - bought GE Cafe Nov 2014 - not too happy with it since ice gets stuck in the bin, constantly taking it out and removing clumped ice. Thought maybe since I didn't use ice in winter months but same issue during summer and I use ice on regular basis. The Loud Noise from the refrig is annoying - this started about 6 months after purchase. Noise stops when door is opened, but starts up again when closed. During the day, I will open and close door just to stop annoying sound. This was an expensive appliance and it doesn't live up to its name!
