This refrigerator has been in service now for six months with no problems.When we were shopping earlier this year for a new refrigerator, it quickly became a dreadful experience. Most of the 20 cubic foot types are dull boxes with squeaky bins and cheap shelves until you get well into the four figures. In fact, we had given up.Then we saw this unit in an appliance store, and the graceful curve on the top, (though the actual top is flat), the older GE logo, and the quality of the shelves and bins inside caused us to be really impressed.The two tempered glass shelves are quite sturdy, and don't wobble or sag. The bins are large enough to hold all of the fruits and vegetables even though there are only two of them. When coupled with the very deep door shelves, we have never had issues with internal space. The bins still do not squeak.As to the freezer section, we did not order the icemaker option; our needs are satisfied with traditional ice trays. We purchased some narrow plastic bins at the restaurant supply store to act as frozen meat organizers in the full width pull out tray. Storage space in the freezer is very good. It can be difficult to pull out the sliding bottom tray to its full length, but the bins we installed offer ready access even if the tray cannot be pulled out all the way. It would be nice if there was a full width door shelf, but this has not been a problem for us.Yes, the refrigerator makes some noise, but it is not objectionable. What is even more important is that it is still running quite reliably after six months.The styling is somewhat unique these days with the crown top and horizontal door pulls, but it is really quite attractive when installed. Since we ordered the white model, our magnets stick to the steel exterior. Believe it or not, it's actually an enjoyable experience to use this refrigerator!In summation, this refrigerator is a good value even at the list price when compared to the dreary competition. If you can find a discounted price for this refrigerator, I would highly recommend that you not hesitate any longer if this size of refrigerator is adequate to your needs. You really cannot do better than this model, I believe.

I bought this unit about 6 months ago. I bought an older house and thought the retro look would work perfectly. The unit was on back order for the hardware store for months and they finally gave me the floor model. I notice now that they are no longer carrying this series. The refrigerator space is great and holds a lot. I can't see a way to get the bottom tray out to clean thoroughly. I feel like bins under the bottom tray are going to break soon. Freezer basket is difficult to pull out, and door needs to be open all the way to even attempt it. Not very much freezer space. When the freezer door is open all the way, it is dented and scratched by a bracket in between the doors.

Comments about GE Artistry Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:
I wanted a freezer on the bottom so the refrigerator contents would be easily viewed and reached. I like that the refrigerator is at eye level and easily accesible. However, I'm disappointed that the shelves go all the way across and cannot be reconfigured halfway accross like my previous refrigerator could. Thus, the only way I can put tall items in, like milk cartons or tall bottles, is in the door. If I adjust a shelf so that there's the height on a shelf, that means the whole shelf moves, and then the shelf above or below is very short. I would not have bought it if I'd known this, but unfortunately the store wherre I bought it did not have one in stock for me to look at, and the website did not disclose this problem. Also, the freezer doesn't have a designated place to put ice trays--again I might not have bought it had I known that. Too bad. One more thing: it seems pretty noisy when it's running.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Double drawer freezer allows to seperate items
from Pauls Valley, OK, United States
I purchased this refrigerator almost 8yrs ago and it has been completely trouble free. GE should return this refrigerator to the market. This Model is worth every penny. I use the water in the door frequently for everything because it is filtered and the design leaves complete equal capacity in the double door space. No worry about ever having ice maker problems, the large ice maker tray inside the freezer is only accessible when needed, also leaving more useable space.
Great features, larger inside than we thought.
Like it a to - only possible negative is that it does run a little loud
Roomy and Feature-"full" for a smaller fridge
from Milwaukee, WI, United States
I was a little worried (as I bought the item online) that it would be smaller, in terms of storage space than it looked. But now that we've got it installed, I'm LOVING it - the temp. controls work really well, the icemaker is great and I love the way the inside of this refrigerator is "organized". And despite it being slightly smaller than standard, it has plenty of room for all our groceries. Very please overall with this product!
Design of refridgerator
from Roseville, MI
I really like the design of this refrigerator but it turned out to a little smaller than the one I just got rid of. After installation we noticed that the freezer is not sealing tight enough. We have condensation around the seal and frost on items just inside the door. No meat drawer.

Really nice basic fridge with great looks. Great design and quiet.
Great Looking Fridge
from California, United States
Very happy so far. Love the style and functionality. Took one star away as the freezer drawer gets blocked from sliding out al the way by the door itself, even when the door is opened at 90 degree angle. Can still reach all frozen foods for our use, but it is odd.

from Bouse, AZ, United States
