Nice looking refrigerator So far, so good. Recently received our Cafe Side by Side to match the rest of our Cafe appliances. Makes a huge difference in the appearance of the kitchen. Beautiful. A bit confused with the different Cafe emblems - my understanding is that the newer Cafe appliances will have the gray GE emblems whereas our Advantium and Range have red emblems. Would have preferred to see some consistency on GE's part. April 24, 2013
i nice item but very expensive it is well made but a little complicated and very expensive compaired to others March 29, 2013
After one month we are very pleased We went from an old (20+ years) side-by-side to this refrigerator one month ago. Went with the whole Cafe line and wanted a counter-depth fridge so the choice was easy. Yes, the shelves felt small at first, but there is so much room on the doors that once we got organized we really started taking advantage of the space this offers. The Cafe line is so stylish, we're getting a lot of compliments simply on the look! March 5, 2013
Beautiful, but quirky, refrigerator. We purchased this refrigerator as part of the whole suite of Cafe products. We needed counter depth, which it is, and also liked the overall look and features. The unit is easy to clean, both inside and out, and the drawers and shelves are convenient. The quirky comment comes from the noises of the ice maker, which range from random clicking to gurgling. The ice maker also is slow to produce, hangs up quite a bit, and sometimes takes too long to deliver ice through the dispenser. As with most other side-by-sides, a second refrigerator/freezer is almost a necessity, especially if you like to entertain. November 30, 2012
Love this refrigerator! I really like this refrigerator. My only complaint is the freezer door baskets are very stiff. No, I don't want the items in the basket to fall out, but I don't want to scrape the side of the door each time I move the basket. October 11, 2012
pluses & minuses We bought this refrigerator to match our range. We were not able to see this item in any store and we went to everyone within a 10 mi radius or called to see if they had this model in their showroom. This is a huge mistake not to show this model anywhere except online. GE needs to do a better job of describing the interior and SHOW pictures of both refrig & freezer sides. This is counterdepth, but the shelves are very shallow, esp the freezer. There probably doesn't need to be so much room taken up by icemaker and other mechanics in the back of the refrigerator. Perhaps some of this could be at the bottom or top, giving more depth to the shelves. Also the express chill drawer is diffficult to line up the swing locks to pull out or replace the drawer. I use it for more storage area. It looks nice, but is definitely smaller in capacity than my previous refrig (20 yrs) which was smaller in size & capacity but larger on the inside. In this day & age, GE could do a better job with space arrangement & cut the cost. It is overpriced for it's capacity, stainless steel or not. October 4, 2012
Looks great and fit perfectly in our small kitchen We purchased this refrigerator to match the other GE Cafe appliances we were installing in our remodeled kitchen. It does make quite a bit of noise (clicking, etc) but it is only noticeable if you are in the kitchen and we have gotten used to it. The extra features like quick ice and express chill work well and come in handy. There isn't as much interior space as our old fridge, but we expected this being a counter depth. It really looks nice and the stainless is high quality and easy to keep clean. September 16, 2012
Great product (cold) This appliance is well built ,stainless steel enhance its beauty and its real cold on he inside. freezer side tough is a little small but overall nice. August 22, 2012
