    Beautiful and functional!

    I love, love, LOVE this fridge! I've had it for 3 years now and have never had a single problem with it. When I purchased it, I had a very specific list of "needs" for a refrigerator for in our new home. Due to the way our kitchen is configured, it really needed to be counter-depth. I wanted it to be stainless on the sides as well as the front, and I really wanted the bottom freezer. Honestly the GE Cafe was the only fridge I found that met all of those requirements. The downsides (in my opinion) were that it cost about twice what I had planned on paying, and it is not an Energy Star appliance. I was slightly concerned about it not having enough space, due to being counter-depth, but I have been very pleasantly surprised at how spacious it really is inside! Almost all of the shelves move around easily to accommodate just about anything you need to store. There is even room to put a large pizza (or 2! box and all!) on the bottom shelf. And the freezer is just as roomy with multiple drawers/baskets on the inside. And I love that the water dispenser is on the inside of the fridge--it takes up no room at all and is so convenient. So the refrigerator in general is extremely functional, and on top of that, it's an absolute beauty to look at. It's the shining star of my kitchen for sure!

    Problems after just 6 months

    We purchased both the GE Cafe refrigerator and dual fuel range. Loved the appearance and features. Both appliances were installed end of August 2011. February 2012 the compressor on the refrigerator went bad and I lost a full refrigerator and freezer full of food! Not something I think is acceptable for an appliance that is in use for less than 6 months. I was without a refrigerator and freezer for almost a week and while GE covered the repairs, I am financially out the cost of the food, as well I am now worried about the future long term reliability of this unit.

    Nice layout

    Good fridge for a couple or very small family. Ice maker and water dispenser work, and the design is useful.

    Not a happy customer

    I've owned this refrigerator for about 3 months and the water dispenser stopped working after about 2 months of use. This is unacceptable. Also, one of the doors never closes securely and the alarm is constantly going off. I am not a happy customer and will purchase all Bosch next time.

    Great Fridge but be sure you like the way the double doors shut

    We bought this as part of a set - oven, dishwasher, fridge and we love the quality and performance but the double door fridge is designed in such a way that if you open the right side, you have to press it closed firmly - you can't just let it shut by itself. If we had it to do over, we'd opt for a single door. The interior water dispenser seems a little pointless as well but it's not an inconvenience.
