GE GFE27GMDES Reviews & Ratings

GFE27GMDES 36" 26.7 Cu. Ft. French-Door Ice & Water Refrigerator With TwinChill Evaporators, Advanced Filtration System, Showcase LED Lighting, in Slate Finish is rated 4.406 out of 5 by 133.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny We just purchased this product but obviously for the past 50 years of marriage have owned other fridges. This is our first with the freezer on the bottom and it's the best way to go. There is a large drawer in the freezer compartment that will house smaller objects so they are always accessible which opens up the bottom for your meats. I love the French doors for storing long items and the adjustable shelves will fit anything. You can buy this with confidence. I also purchased a gas/convection oven, microwave and dishwasher at the same time. Look for my reviews on those items. I am one lucky lady.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good We've had this refrigerator about 2 months and like it so far. The freezer area is very nice with the drawer inside being nice for better organization. My last fridge displayed quantities when getting water from the door, I miss this feature, this display doesn't really display much. Capacity in fridge section is good. Wish it came with some sort of egg tray though, a regular carton fits very snuggly in the compartment and makes annoying sytrofoam squeaking noise every time it goes in and out. We LOVE the finish and it does stay clean-looking and less expensive than stainless steel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ice Dispenser doesn't work I'm not pleased at all by the ice maker on this refrigerator. Unless I put a large mouthed glass directly up to the top of the ice maker I have ice all over the kitchen floor. I have repeatedly complained about this to the manufacturer and to the appliance store I bought this at and have been told this is how it was designed. I'm very disappointed. It's got a very nice exterior and inside space and lighting is great but the ice machine was designed very poorly. I have tried other brands and this is not how they dispense ice. They need to improve the design of this dispenser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Slate! I've been waiting for something better than stainless steel and GE finally made it. I like the slate finish and look. The dispenser is wonderful, this is my first one. My other refrigerator had the freezer on the top and this one we can actually see and find our food, a big improvement. I also like the design of the arch at the top. It gives it a nice look that's not so boxy looking. The freezer is really big and holds a lot. I'm very pleased with it. Another blessing to be thankful for. The only downside is the handles are still stainless and need to be polished a lot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOISY!!! The look is great but so is the loud annoying sound that comes with it. It's a loud grinding sound that never stops.Sometimes it's dull and other times it's a maddening level. We called to have it fixed a number of times. but in the end we were told it's just "normal" for their appliance. I used to enjoy cooking in my kitchen. Now I hurry up to leave the room! I stopped cooking regularly because to drown out the noise from the refrigerator I have to blast some music or the TV. It's beyond frustrating. I'm so disappointed with our purchase of GE appliances!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ge Fridge Purchased this item and I like the color but I'm not to pleased with the size of the shelves on the doors there a bit small and very awkward to put things in them. you can utilize more the right door than the left. the left door to me is a waste. Also I'm not pleased with the Ice maker compartment i'ts too small does not hold alot of ice cubes like a side by side fridge. the bottom freezer compartment is nice. also when you need to get something out of the vegetable tray or any tray you have to open both doors to get to what your looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this refrigerator! We replaced all of our kitchen appliances two months ago with GE Slate appliances. This refrigerator is great and we love the bottom freezer drawer. Both the freezer and the refrigerator space are large and keep the contents at their appropriate temperature. The only consideration for those looking to purchase is the size and capability of the ice maker. Our older refrigerator had a huge compartment for ice and we sometimes miss that but work around it by storing ice if we know we are going to have a need for more. The slate exterior is beautiful. The stainless handles get fingerprinted but that's to be expected. I am just grateful we went with the slate versus stainless for that reason. The refrigerator is relatively quiet and cools fast. Definitely recommend!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Noisy! Love the look...but two's very noisy, sometimes it sounds like it's taking off into space, over time I'll get used to it but don't understand why GE can't make a quieter machine. Also the door handles are've made the exterior this beautiful color that doesn't show marks, etc..but I constantly have to wipe the handles cause they show every mark, I can't go from chopping food to grabbing the handle without first wiping my hands...otherwise I'm happy I bought this fridge...but, hate the noise!
