Pefect Refrigerator of Our Home
We previously owned a 10 year old 18 cubic foot GE refrigerator that had been an excellent refrigerator, in fact it still worked fine. But over the years there were some dents on the front of the door and some interior pieces that had broken. So we decided after much research to replace it with this 15.5 cubic foot GE. We choose this specific model because I prefer wire shelves over glass. I think that the air circulates better and the food cools more quickly. I ordered an extra shelf and kept the snack drawer from the old GE. I placed the snack drawer on a shelf and it actually is more convenient this way. With the third shelf there is just as much storage room and maybe even more than I had in the 18 cubic foot GE. Within 2 hours after the new refrigerator was plugged in the food storage compartment was already cooled to 35 degrees and the freezer was at 0 degrees. I really love this refrigerator. We have a small kitchen and I didn't want a big box sticking out into the kitchen and with the recessed handles it has a sleek appearance.

Great reliable product. Friendly customer service.

freezer works fine
just right size for the apartment and fits just perfect
by Phyllis27
Lots of room!
Lots of room for a small refrigerator, especially the freezer. Only thing I don't love is the bi-level shelf that seems to actually waste some space, though I think was intended to serve very tall things (we don't have). Wish this was optional, I would have ordered another flat shelf. Otherwise, we love so far!

A small but spacious refrigerator
We were limited by having a small space for a refrigerator in our kitchen, but this design is amazingly spacious inside. There are ultra-wide shelves in the door, and very big shelf space in the main compartments. The freezer is really wonderful too, with lots of room and good visibility. Also, this did not have that awful “new” smell that some refrigerators do, and did not have any plastic odor at all. The recessed handles also really save space in our small kitchen, and are easy to grasp and pull. This is an excellent basic space-saving small refrigerator.
by Maia410
Perfect design
Rounded edges, handleless, two crispers, no annoying icemaker, spacious thoughtful interior with large door compartments... not too big, not too small... excellent energy efficiency. Not a "true counter-depth", but as close as you're going to get without spending way too much and/or getting a lesser brand; believe me, I searched far and wide. This is a thoughtfully simple, efficient, effective refrigerator. Way to go GE.
it's a little loud but the energy star is a big plus.

Perfect size for our rental property.
We didn't have a lot of choices of refrigerators that would fit in the space this kitchen provided. We also needed a frig that had recessed handles instead of the standard type. We chose this GE because of the larger refrigerator square footage in comparison to the freezer size. GE has always been dependable in the past, so it was our #1 choice when comparing other brands of the same size.
