Remodelled kitchen with new cabinets and wanted a counter depth model fridge. Originally looked for models with ice and water on the door but after hearing about maintenance issues with those types I opted for ice below and water inside the fridge. I LOVE the LED lighting, gives it a bright fresh look inside! Like the ample door storage as well. The only way I would suggest this model be improved upon is fingerprint free stainless steel on the outside and two separate meat/dairy doors on the bottom row instead of one large one so both main doors do not have to be opened to access items inside this drawer. Also, fridge is slightly noisier than my old one but nothing to complain about.

It keeps things cold. The layout is reasonable, since this is a counter-depth model it is relatively shallow and we like how easily we can see and access the food in the refrigerator. It just doesn't seem that roomy. Definitely glad we didn't get the version with the in-door ice-maker - that would've used up close to 1/3rd of the space in the fridge. The freezer rolling shelf falls off it's track on a daily basis. It then won't roll and must be unstuck and put back on by hand - my wife still hasn't figured out how to do it so I'm being constantly nagged about the "broken" freezer shelf. On occasion (5 times in the last 3 months?) the freezer door does not close properly and everything in the freezer ends up covered in frost. Haven't figured out what is going on there. When swinging the fridge doors shut, they stop with jarring force - hard enough to dump things off the shelves. I had a glass butter dish fall out of the butter tray and break within the first week of owning. You must purposefully release the door when it is almost shut in order to get it to close more softly. The push button for filtered water is very difficult to depress far enough to get water to dispense. I am the only one in my family that can figure out how to do it without using 2 hands - that leaves no hand to hold the glass! I have figured out that I can leave one door shut, prop my elbow against it and use that lever against in order to put enough force on the button to get it to dispense water. Once the water starts dispensing, the button must be kept depressed with heavy force or else the water flow annoyingly stops and you have to repress the button - usually happens 2-3 times per glass filling. The stow-away shelf is a gimmick that just takes up valuable space from the shelf below it. Would like to see them do away with that "feature" - would even pay for a fixed shelf - will have to look into availability.

Comments about GE Cafe Counter Depth Stainless Steel French-Door Refrigerator:
A few years ago we purchased the cafe range and microwave and at that time our fridge was still working so we held off on replacing the fridge at that time. Over the past few months our fridge was starting to have problems, after 16 years it was tired. In searching for a replacement, and after considering many brands, (looking at far too many online reviews) for more than a month we just couldn't go with any other brand than GE and the cafe series. We made adjustments to our cabinets to accommodate this fridge (moving up our overhead cabinet and attached pantry by 3") and it is gorgeous! We gained a couple inches of floor space with the counter depth and it looks perfect with our cabinetry. This fridge holds a lot! I love the clean lines and water inside! I know some reviews claim that it is difficult to get water but we have no issues with pressing the button and those that have issues with the noise of the fan didn't concern us either -- the little noises it makes (which you can hear via uTube via the GE site) blend right into our home, much like white noise.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works good, runs quietly
from Cental Connecticut
Bought this to replace an ailing unit and to match my other CafÃ© appliances.
So much better than what we had.
from Yakima, WA, United States
Purchased this to replace a side by side refrigerator freezer with ice and water in the door. It was very difficult to organize the food even there are only 2 of us. We love the water feature in side the refrigerator. Everything is so very easy to find now. We couldn't be happier.
from Nassau, NY
Fridge is working pretty good so far. Water dispenser is leaking already but everything else works great. Fridge has plenty of room, nice adjustable shelves.
from Prescott Valley, AZ, United States
Purchased about three months ago. The LED lighting is a nice feature. The storage is good with shelf options. Freezer storage is good with a small tilt out shelf in drawer front. Great temperature control but a little noisy at times. The water dispenser is a bit awkward to use.
a lot of space
from Fontana, CA, United States
I love the refrigerator space. We hosted the holidays this past year and there was space for everything in the fridge.
from Hendersonville, NC, United States
We've used this for several months and are very pleased. The front stainless steel is easy to keep clean. The inside has many helpful adjustable shelves. Because it is countertop depth it does not have a lot of interior space so the flexible shelving makes a big difference. This product would be improved with deeper vegetable crisper drawers with better temperature control. I like the temperature options for the useful deli drawer.
Sleek and Modern!
from Bethlehem, PA, United States
We love, love our new GE CafÃ© Series Refrigerator! We choose the model with the sleek front and an internal water dispenser. Very pleased with the space in the freezer, the icemaker, all the upper shelves and allowance for taller items. Such a perfect purchase!
Sleek look and great features
from Lake St Louis, MO, United States
I love the sleek look. I like having the water dispenser and ice make on the inside of the unit, not on the doors. This is a counter depth refrigerator so It's not as deep as a regular style, but that's why I like it. Everything is accessible and easy to reach.
