Customer Reviews

26.3 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator in Slate is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 321.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart looking and lots of usable space. I really like the French doors, but I would change the pull out meat drawer to 2 pull out meat drawers. Both of the doors have to be open to pull that drawer out. I was delighted that I could purchase a refrigerator that did not have ice and water on the outside of the door. The lighting is bright and inviting when you open the door and all contents are easy to see. The large bins on the doors in very convenient for cartons of milk and tall juice containers.  I do find the refrigerator to be a bit noisy when it is running, but I and sure that with time we will become accustomed to the new sound. I also find that  the plastic is hard to remove. It appears that some of the plastic was put on before the assembly process. This refrigerator has replaced a side-by-side that we really and truly did never like! The freezer on the bottom is the way to go.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Side by side replacement I bought this to replace a side by side which did not have a water dispenser and I did not want a water dispenser. In general the refrigerator is satisfactory. It is noisier -- it makes weird buzzing noise periodically and loud hum when refrigerator is on which can be heard in adjacent rooms. Both doors need to be opened to take item from meat bin/tray -- this should be two drawers, not one. The pros are the tilt push back shelf for tall bottles and adjustable door bins. It would good to have two condiment bins, instead of one. A major complaint is difficulty of removing protective plastic which is almost impossible to remove, even with tweezers. It appears that plastic was put on refrigerator prior to assembly so plastic is firmly imbedded where pieces join. Since I can't get it all removed, bits of plastic remain which detracts from the appearance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from refrigerator Service was excellent. Very disappointed in product. Shopping for this refer there were NO pics of the inside. Big red flag. The cost was $2k and no butter dish, no egg tray, and the worst yet it does NOT HAVE A WATER DISPENSER, does have Ice Maker and water filter and i paid for a "water line" all of which Made me think that it had a water dipenser. Now the refer itself is huge. Tony Soprano woulid have loved it. It works wonderful but DOES NOT DISPENSE WATER. MABE would recommend it to some one that doesn't need the things I mentioned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks nice and functional This refrigerator looks great in our kitchen and is very spacious. The water lines were very easy to hook up and the digital temp, gauge lets you know what the exact temp is. The price is higher then I would normally pay for an appliance but I am really glad we decided to buy it. This refrigerator really adds a nice look to our kitchen. I would recommend this appliance to all of my friends. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Special I bought this refrigerator, recently, and got it for a steal. It's beautiful, streamlined, and very modern. Beyond that, it's HUGE, easy to organize, and energy efficient! This fridge (and the entire suite of Slate products) are highly rated, and getting them for a steal just made the whole process enjoyable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally smudge-free look, but not the handles? The refrigerator comes in this awesome smudge-free new color that looks great, but the handles are stainless and get smudges and fingerprints every time you open the doors! Love the space inside, and it keeps the temperature perfectly. I just don't understand why GE didn't use the same material on the handles, since that's the part of the appliance that is constantly being touched?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love that everything is at eye level in the fridge Some reviews said it was loud.  I find it very quiet.  Love the storage in the doors and that everything is up at eye level.  Only draw back is the ice maker in the freezer doesn't make a lot of ice daily.  It was a great trade off for me to have a bit less ice and have all the space in the fridge door.  Space that otherwise would have been taken up by the in-door ice maker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Company turn around Have had this refrigerator four days now. It got cold faster than we were told; made ice faster than we were told. The cubic footage is nearly the same as our last refrigerator however we seem to be able to fit more stuff. Yes had to remove door handles to remove the shipping plastic, but it seems a small pain to get an unscratched frig. My wife is very happy to date.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lots of room Ample storage fridge works great. Icemaker on the slow side making only 20 to 30 cubes a day not the 100 in the manual. Also the plastic film they wrap it in is difficult to remove. Overall we are pleased and at this point would reccomend it. The slate look is very nice but remember it is still stainless so it smudges easy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it already! Love it already! The refrigerator section allows me to easily see everything in it- no more pulling things out just to see what is in the back. Moveable shelves allow me to customize the interior to suit my needs. The bottom freezer section is large and customizable too! I consider this to be one of my best purchases ever!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems with performance AND appearance We've had problems with this unit since it arrived. We are now 6 months in and I deeply regret buying this fridge. Overlooking the common complaint about how impossible it is to remove the protective plastic wrap, we've had consistent problems with food freezing in the refrigerator- regardless of the 41 degree setting and food position within the fridge. Futher, I'm so saddened to see how easily the surface scratches. Our run-of-the-mill fridge magnets have destroyed the appearance of the front of the fridge with very visible, shallow scratches anywhere we have used magnets on the doors. Too soft a coating for the appliance or there must have been problems with the coating run. Stay away from this unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks great...but....... In July 2014, it will be one year that I have had this refrigerator. A few months ago, it started making the loudest noises - so loud, in fact, I could hear them over my tv!! I googled the product and found a list of the "standard" noises that are common to the fridge and this is insane!! Honestly, it is the most annoying "clicking" and "gurgling" noises I have ever heard!! However, it is maintaining the temps in both the fridge and freezer...BUT, I am feeling forced to purchase the extended warranty because I quite honestly don't know how much longer this thing is going to keep going! It's a darn shame because this fridge was quite expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST VALUE .. Previous Complaints Unfounded Having read all the comments prior to ordering, I was concern about several issues that were previously reported. Issue 1 - Comments that it was too noisy. The refrigerator is EXTREMELY QUITE! Our kitchen is part of an open living area. After 2 months, the ONLY sound we hear is the occasional ice dropping into its bin! Issue 2 - Some complained that the unit does not make enough ice. Our unit makes 100 - 110 cubes per day which is per the specifications, which we find to be more than adequate. Living in the south we do drink a lot of ICED tea ( If you have a large family, just buy some ice trays.) Issue 3 - Plastic (used to protect during shipping) is caught under the trim and is difficult to remove. Yes, it is and it may take some time and effort to remove (use wood or plastic so as not to scratch the finish) We LOVE the unit it's layout (bottom freezer) and volume are a major step up from our old refrigerator! The temperature and feature controls on the door are well located and simple to use! The only negative issue I did encounter was the vertical misalignment of the doors. This was easily adjusted with an allen wrench (located under the doors at the hinge).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Space! I bought all new slate GE appliances about 6 months ago and love them. The slate finish hides finger prints unlike stainless steel. I love the shelves and all the space. The ability to slide in a shelf to put a huge pot or container is a bug bonus. I Love my GE appliances!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Energy Efficient & Gorgeous! What Capacity!! We had a power surge and lost our Kitchenaid built in fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, love it, love it! Only draw back is the plastic smell in the fridge despite washing all the bins etc thoroughly in hot water. I'm sure it will go away soon and I'm using lots of baking soda to absorb the odor which seems to be working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It We have had the frig for 3 months and we love it.... wish we would have bought it sooner. No more bending down to see what's on the bottom shelves.. food is all at eye level. Storage in the doors is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basically it is a good refrig I am not sure I am excited about the French Doors.
