Discover the Best GE Fridge Model
The GE GFE28GYNFS is Spencer's most popular fridge model
One of the first models we show customers is the GE® 27.7 Cu. Ft. Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator. This is one of the most frequently purchased refrigerators on our sales floor and is also one of the highest-rated options. With almost 13,000 reviews, you can really learn why people love this appliance.
Here are 10 reasons why this GE refrigerator is the most popular one on the market and why you should order one today.
1. This is a Large-Capacity Model
Refrigerators are built to accommodate different family sizes, and this model is made for large households. If you live with hungry teenagers, young kids who need snacks, and old relatives who also need to eat, make sure your refrigerator is big enough to accommodate them.
This GE refrigerator is ideal for people who need to store a lot of groceries at once, both in the refrigerator and freezer. The design also enables you to store platters and part dishes ahead of major events.
2. Advanced Climate Control Systems Protect Your Food
Not only will this GE french door refrigerator store a lot of food, but it will also keep it fresh. This option comes with two humidity-controlled drawers which are designed to store produce.
Families in Phoenix know how quickly their fruits and vegetables can go bad when they aren’t stored properly. GE designs its refrigerators with the goal of extending the shelf life of your food. If your groceries last even a few more days, you can cut back on your food waste.
3. French Doors Conserve Energy
French door refrigerators are one of the most popular design styles in today’s kitchens. Two doors in the refrigerator section increase your storage capacity while allowing you to expose less of your food to external temperatures. When you open just one of the french doors, the groceries in the other half of the refrigerator stay cool.
French doors can reduce your overall energy usage, potentially lowering your electric bill. These doors also keep your kitchen accessible because one large door won’t block any pathways in your home.
4. The Appliance is ENERGY STAR Qualified
Many GE refrigerators are ENERGY STAR qualified or certified, which means they use less energy than other models on the market. According to the ENERGY STAR guidelines, homeowners can save more than $260 over the 12-year lifespan of the average refrigerator when they choose one of their certified models. These appliances are nine percent more energy efficient than other refrigerators you can buy.
There are other ways to reduce your energy bill with your refrigerator. You can choose the right model size for your needs and keep it full because there will be less empty space that needs to be cooled.
5. It Connects to Your WiFi
This particular GE refrigerator model can hook up to your ConnectPlus app, which is used to manage other GE products. With this app, you can adjust your refrigerator settings to make the temperature warmer or cooler. If a big storm is coming, lower the temperature of your refrigerator so it will stay colder for longer when the power goes out.
WiFi connectivity is also useful if your appliance breaks. You will be alerted immediately if your refrigerator stops working and the app can recommend steps to troubleshoot problems. This allows you to make repairs faster.
6. There is an Icemaker and Water Filter
This GE refrigerator comes with an external ice and water dispenser. The water filter removes 98% of ibuprofen, atenolol, fluoxetine, progesterone, and trimethoprim from the tap. These chemicals are not necessary for everyone’s water. As a result, you can enjoy water that tastes better, along with better coffee, tea, and other drinks that you make with it.
The space-saving icemaker is meant to produce cubes quickly without taking away from your storage capabilities. If you need a lot of ice for parties or family members who enjoy cold drinks, consider upgrading to a second icemaker option within the freezer.
7. You Can Easily Adjust the Shelves and Drawers
Don’t change your life to accommodate your refrigerator. Instead, choose a GE refrigerator that adjusts to your needs. This model was designed with flexibility in mind. You can move around the shelves to create large and small spaces to store different items. Whether you have gallons of milk and large bottles or lengthy party platters, you can find shelf space that meets your needs.
The freezer also comes with two full-width storage baskets for easier organization. You don’t have to stack boxes and bags of frozen food on top of each other.
8. The Turbo Cool Technology Protects Your Groceries
GE continuously invests in new technology to make its refrigerator models more efficient. This model comes with Turbo Cool and Turbo Freeze settings that you can turn on. Whenever a door is opened (either on the freezer or refrigerator side) the Turbo technology provides an extra blast of cold air. This resets the temperature and keeps your food cold.
These Turbo blasts are essential features if your family members are guilty of leaving the refrigerator door open or staring at the shelves for several minutes while deciding what they want to eat.
9. The LED Lighting Creates a Bright Experience
LED lighting is a staple in almost any refrigerator GE makes. This model comes with showcase LED lighting that is designed to display your food in the best possible light. The lighting is positioned in such a way that it isn’t easily blocked by your groceries. Instead of one lightbulb placed in the back, GE uses multiple bulbs placed throughout the refrigerator.
There is also LED lighting in the freezer, which means ice cream, frozen meals, and other items won’t be forgotten because it is too dark to see them.
10. It Comes in Multiple Colors
You don’t have to choose between a GE refrigerator with french doors and a model that matches your color needs. This particular refrigerator comes in three different colors: black slate, slate, and fingerprint-resistant stainless steel. You can choose an option that best matches your current design aesthetic.
The fingerprint-resistant stainless steel is ideal if you have small children in your home. You can spend less time cleaning your appliances and more time using them throughout the day.
Is GE a good brand for a refrigerator?
GE produces some of the top refrigerator models on the market. It is known as a mid-range brand, which means customers pay less than they would for luxury appliances. GE invests in quality design and manufacturing to provide key features that customers need. If you are in the market for a refrigerator, look into appliances designed by GE.
What is the average life of a GE refrigerator?
Most refrigerators last between 10 to 15 years depending on how they are used and maintained. GE falls within this range. Most GE refrigerator models last approximately 12 years. However, if you keep your refrigerator full and maintain it over the years, it will last longer. You know it is time to replace your refrigerator if it can’t stay cool or stops working unexpectedly.
