GE Profile Refrigerator/Freezer
I inherited my GE Profile Refrigerator/Freezer
when we bought our current home a little over two years.
It is stainless steel
with the freezer on the bottom
. I don't love it, and I don't hate it.
It's taken me a while to get used to it, but I must say it is growing on me
. I've never had a freezer on the bottom before.
At first, I didn't like having to pull open the freezer to get the ice from the drawer or open the fridge to access the filtered, cold water inside. I prefer ice and water outside
However, I've come to appreciate that my young children can no longer help themselves to the water and ice dispensers and make a mess that way
because the doors are too heavy to open. :)
I have had side-by-side refrigerators
before, which I like, but now I also like this setup.
Having all the refrigerator items at eye level and less food ends up forgotten
and rotten in the bottom drawers near the floor is convenient. Now I can see the produce through the large, clear drawers right in front of me. I like this, and less food is wasted.
I like having plenty of space in the door for milk and juice
. I could fit four gallons in the door
alone, which is great.
I also now like having the freezer on the bottom. I use the pullout wire drawers to divide the food by category (fruits/vegetables, meats, etc.). There is space for ice cream on the top part. It is also very convenient for storing frozen pizza
because some side-by-side freezers are too narrow to fit the pizza boxes in.
Another great feature is the temperature display
, which shows the temperature in the fridge and freezer at all times, and the fact that it is pretty quiet (no loud humming). Drawbacks
- The ice maker can get a little overzealous and overflow the tray so that ice spills on the floor when you open the freezer drawer.
- Also, it's a bit difficult to clean the bottom of the freezer.
However, all in all, I would recommend it
. It has been very reliable (it is six years old now), has a significant amount of convenient, accessible storage, and the refrigerator is easy to clean.
