The refrigerator is the largest and most used appliance in your kitchen. Fortunately, they’ve come a long way since the day of the boxy design with one butter bin inside.

GE offers energy smart refrigerators combining form and function that add style and storage to your kitchen.


If you get annoyed bending over to root through the bins for your fruits and veggies, then consider the GE GBR20DTERWW Bottom Mount Refrigerator. This 29.75″ 20.3 Cu. Ft. unit has spacious bins and shelves at eye level so with a quick glance you can tell what’s for dinner. Adjustable shelving means there is plenty of space even for large platters and bulky dishes.

The GE GBR20DTERWW temperature controls are at the front so you can easily adjust your settings without moving anything.

You will have to bend over to get to the bottom freezer but the pull out drawer means you have easy access to frozen foods. The top freezer shelf accommodates large items such as frozen pizza. Keeping the freezer organized is a bit more of a challenge because it is farther away. The NeverClean coils keep the dust off and self-defrosting freezer means little upkeep while the quiet design hums along in the background. A reversible door swing allows you to suit your setup and the Handi-Hite Design allows the unit to fit most kitchen layouts (less than 66″ height).  Width:  75.6 cm (29.75 in), Height: 171.5 cm (67.5 in), Depth: 86 cm (33.88 in), Weight: 140 kg (282 lbs.).


The GE GTZ18GBESS Top Mount Refrigerator has the classic design that is perfect for families who use lots of frozen foods or ice. The roomy freezer is at on top with plenty of space for large platters, frozen pizza and burgers, popsicles, juices and ice cream with room leftover for ice.

Pamper your produce in gallon sized humidity-controlled crispers that glide out easily. These fresh produce bins are below the freezer and combined with easily adjusted shelves with a 18.2 cu. ft. capacity there is plenty of room for your food. Spill-resistant glass shelves mean no more messes inside the fridge. wherever you need it. The GE GTZ18GBESS also has temperature controls at the front so you can easily adjust your settings without having to move food around.

The stainless exterior means no fading or discolouration over the years. Clean up fingerprints, sticky stains and other marks easily —  nothing soaks into the stainless steel. NeverClean condenser means clean coils and the Deluxe Quiet Design Sound Package means a quieter refrigerator. Width: 71.1 cm (28 in),

Height: 171.1 cm (67.4 in), Depth: 82.2 cm (32.4 in), Weight: 78 kg (171 lbs.).


The GE GSRS3KLZSS Stainless Steel Side-By-Side is the perfect refrigerator for kitchens where space is tight. Its sleek side-by-side doors gives instant access to both fresh and frozen foods without the space needed for wider doors. This is also a perfect choice for anyone with a physical handicap who needs access to both compartments without standing on a step stool or bending over. The stainless steel finish makes this refrigerator look ultra-sleek in any kitchen while being easy to clean.

The 23.1 cubic foot storage capacity with two adjustable humidity-controlled crispers helps keep your fruit and vegetable fresh longer. SpillProof fresh food cabinet shelves offer storage flexibility, ease of use, and quick clean up. Since the temptation to stand in front of the open doors is just too great, the GE GSRS3KLZSS is equipped with the AutoEnergy saver that senses both freezer and fresh food door openings so adjusts the run time accordingly.

SmartWater filtration removes impurities to dispense clear, clean water and ice while the NeverClean dispenser means no extra cleaning. No worries with defrosting either since the Frost Guard technology lets defrosting occur only as needed, reducing potential freezer burn. The freezer shelves are narrow so storing supersized items  can be challenging.  Width: 83.2 cm (32.8 in), Height: 175.9 cm (69.3 in), Depth: 85.3 cm (33.6 in), Weight: 135.17 kg (298 lbs.).

All three models have the ENERGY STAR certification making this family of GE fridges environmentally friendly and energy efficient. (Don’t know about Energy Star?Click here to read an article I wrote that explains why it’s so important)
