A General Electric refrigerator has been a popular choice of families for decades, ever since the company invented the first-ever electric refrigerator in 1927, a box with five to seven cubic feet of space called the “monitor-top.” Today’s GE refrigerator has little in common with that single-door cooler, thanks to the brand’s aesthetically pleasing designs and innovative high-tech features. Today you'll find advanced water filtration systems, humidity-controlled produce drawers and modern temperature management systems in GE fridges.
To find your perfect new GE fridge, start by determining the correct refrigerator size to fit in your kitchen. Your new refrigerator should be sized to not only fit into its space in the kitchen, but also should be small enough to make it there through doorways and around any corners on the way from outside. When measuring the space for your new GE refrigerator, include any extra space that will be needed to fully open the doors plus clearance for hinges (usually around 2 inches) and space for ventilation (usually around 1 inch). If you buy a GE fridge with an ice maker or water dispenser, make sure there is access to a water line.
Choosing the best GE refrigerator for your style.
General Electric refrigerator models are available in many styles. A GE Profile refrigerator will enhance a traditional kitchen with a sophisticated, contemporary look, while a GE Café refrigerator will add an ultra-modern, almost industrial look to the room. Consider the pros and cons of various refrigerator types: A bottom-freezer design may be more convenient, since fresh food is at eye level. A top-freezer design tends to offer the most capacity for its size, making it a good choice for smaller kitchens. French door refrigerators offer space-saving smaller doors, and side-by-side models provide a freezer on one side and refrigerator on the other. You can find counter-depth French door and side-by-side refrigerators if you like clean lines in your kitchen.
Pairing your new General Electric refrigerator with other GE appliances is a must for any homeowner that wants a unified look in the kitchen. Your GE stove or range should have the same aesthetic as your GE stainless steel refrigerator, your dishwasher and over-the-range microwave. GE refrigerators feature many convenient, time-saving elements, including through-the-door water and ice dispensers, coffee brewing systems and door-in-door storage for easy access to favorite foods. You may prefer freshness features like full-width temperature-controlled drawers and FrostGuard technology that protects items from freezer burn. And, if you choose a smart refrigerator, you can control your GE fridge with a virtual assistant or connected device.
