CYE23TSDSS is rated 4.3797 out of 5 by 187.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful refrigerator... Only has appliance for a couple of day. However, it is working great. Temperature controls working well and shelving configuration is perfect. Couldn't ask for a better fit in our kitchen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good...... I'll start with the exterior of the new counter dept French Door Cafe Refrigerator. It is great looking (leaving out the sides). It appears well built and solid. Moving it around on it's casters forward and back is very easy. It's so easy you need to remember once in place to lower it's feet. If not it can be moved opening a door.....The SS looks to be quality SS. For others like me. I have 5 year old Cafe gas range and microwave. To my eyes at least. The color of the SS on the new Refrigerator is slightly less brushed looking and slightly not as bright. I think it looks slightly better. It is hard to tell the difference so they match up well. Also if you want a red Cafe logo to match your other older Cafe appliances. Contact GE and send them your refrigerator S/N. They will mail you one out with instructions. The one thing I would have preferred is SS sides. The dark grey looks ok but SS would have made it a lot nicer looking and high end. At least make it an option for those of us wanting SS sides...... The Self close upper doors and lower freezer door work great. They appear solid and well built. No frost, condensation or dripping water from them. You will though most likely have to tweek the upper door alignment. Others might not notice looking at them but these things I do. GE gives you a template of .6 inch. I made myself a wood shim that made that job easier.... Next I'll go to the LCD screen. The picture feature is wonderful. If I have a knock on the screen the flowing water picture and as you toggle through the functions. It looks dull and boring. Also although it's a small thing, things like the time and date etc would have been useful if included. But the functions are easy to understand and hit..... The hot water feature works as advertised. Same as precise fill. I just wish both were fully automatic and that auto fill that's on some GE Profile Refrigerators was also included.... The full width temperature control drawer seems to have very accurate temperatures for each item selected. The mulit color LED's are cool. You will find yourself going back and forth between colors just for fun. After a item like cheese is selected with its matching LED light color. After a few seconds it colored LED fades away to the normal white colored one. Same with opening the Refrigerator door. The full length drawer is lit with it's selected color then fades away. The Refrigerator upper and lower sections are both bright and well lit.... Storage bins and shelves are also well laid out. I like the glass shelves. The plastic ones though I wish were thicker. I don't intend to bust one and see what it would take to do that. But thinker ones would make me feel better..... Turbo Freeze and chill work as advertised.... I have horrible tasting water. The water filter actually made my water taste good. There is also a reminder when to replace that and the odor filter.... I have had no problems with the ice maker. No jams or leeks. The crushed ice or cubes come out like they should...... The Refrigerator is also quiet ranging from dead silent to a humming type noise...... The overall temp of the freezer and refrigerator are also accurate..... Lastly. About the ratings. There was no very good option. It just goes from good to excellent. So my appearance and value ratings would have been very good as would my overall rating. To me excellent is the best you can expect. I would have given excellent to appearance had SS sides been included. Excellent to value had SS sides and auto fill been included. Then overall would have been excellent. But I can recommend this Refrigerator to Cafe appliance owner's. Or to those just wanting a great looking , functional French door Refrigerator.......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, feature-filled, counter-depth refrigerator. This is a top contender for the title of "Best mid-range counter-depth refrigerator". Compared to the other brands in the $2000-$3000 price category, this fridge rocks. We really love the water dispenser and the hot water feature works perfectly for making warm baby formula for our grandson. GE hit a home run with this one!
