Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Pa19446 3/19/2022

Clean looking fridge. Our kitchen gets a lot of direct sunlight the slate color helps keep the glare down and looks amazing. Don't see smudges. Fridge doesn't have many high end features. But has a great size and works great.

JM111 11/23/2021

I have had this refrigerator for 5 years now had it is exactly what I needed. I needed a cabinet depth that matched the other appliances I have. I understand the limitation of cabinet depth but for 2 it has been perfect. I will say that we had to replace a freeze bulb and they are very expensive

Inside configuration need work!

Inez47 10/19/2021

Was just installed yesterday, and so far cooling well. Am disappointed in the configuration of shelves/drawers in refrigerator and freezer. Has only one good size drawer, as bottom drawer is very small, due to mechanical area behind it. Really should have a third drawer for meat & cheeses. Freezer would be better if it had pull out bins instead of shelves. Also, freezer could use at least one more shelf/bin, as there is a lot of space that is wasted between the freezer shelves. If everything in the freezer is in a neat box, you might can stack things up and use the space efficiently, but there's no way random shaped items are going to stack well on the shelves (thus deep bins would be a better choice). There are no adjustable feet/stops in the front corners, and when you open the door(s) the whole refrigerator pulls out of the cabinet a bit. Need to keep pushing it back into the cabinet. The 21.8 cu ft side by side is somewhat better arranged and cost a good bit less! Unfortunately, due to availability and the need to fit our weird space, this model (21.9 cu ft) was my only choice.

Great replacement refrigerator. We like the counter depth size, and ice maker is able to keep up with a family of four. Sleek design with smudge proof on the slate model.

Basic mechanical issues

mer60 7/20/2021

Even after adjusting the front legs for leveling purposes, the doors still don't fall shut and, in fact, shutting the fridge door makes the freezer door pop open a centimeter - just enough not to notice but for the ice maker to clog up. Going to need a second service call on a brand new appliance, not good. Uneven doors make this appliance seem cheap. I would not buy again.

Poor lighting and space is terrible

GR25 6/20/2021

The lighting in refrigerator is terrible, especially the mid to lower half. My family can't see anything in there. Literally need use flashlight. There are only two drawers and overall lacking space. The freezer doesn't have good soace either and the shelving is ridiculous. Additionally, cubed or crushed both come out the same. Its a very poor refrigerator and we're dissatisfied.

Vcal 5/14/2021

After much research pulled the trigger on this Fridge and we are pleased we did. The size is perfect for our limited space and the matte fingerprint resistant finish is great. The quality inside the fridge is not cheap plastic, love the glass easy to clean shelves. Only reason not five stars would be the handles will show fingerprints.

Buzzing

What is the problem 4/9/2021

Love the look and it's almost same interior as our 20+ y.o model. The one dislike so far is the buzzing noise while it's cooling. Is there a way to eliminate this sound?

GE Countertop Refrigerator

Gstein 2/16/2021

This model does not have the additional small drawer for meats, cheeses, etc but there is plenty of room for one. The space between the lowest shelf and the drawer is wasted.

The GZS22DMJES side-beside refrigerator

Olympic Lifter 1/28/2021

The only reason I did not give this refrigerator is because it only has two pull-out drawers on the refrigerator side (meats, vegetables). Our previous Kenmore Elite refrigerator had a third drawer for cheese.

It looks great (the slate is magnetic) and the feature that the light comes of softly is great for those late-night fridge attacks that are sometimes necessary.

Nice fridge

Ray729 12/20/2020

Overall I am happy with this purchase, everyone who sees it is impressed. It really is a very nice fridge. Unfortunately it makes a lot of noise making ice and maintaining itself (I know that is worded funny). I think almost everyone is used to the sound of tan Ice maker dropping ice, but this thing will make a load bang about 5 minutes after it drops the ice. It also likes to make an odd sound, like a groan when it opens and closes a check valve (I found several others who have complained of the same sounds, only to find out they are "normal operating" sounds).

looks good, noisy, poor lighting

NH75 12/17/2020

Most refrigerators we wanted were out of stock or back ordered. Chose this one as it was available. Since it was more expensive, we thought it would be a better quality than the lower priced similar similar model from GE. Don't know about the quality of the lower priced model, but are disappointed with this model. Main objection is the noise, as it is worse than the old one it replaced. Lighting is less than what you would expect in the most basic of models. One large light at the top does not provide light for lower shelves and bins. Water and ice indicators are also difficult to see with the small dot light provided. Our fault for not viewing a showroom model, but still would have not known of the noise problem, as other reviews have indicated it is quiet.

If ONLY this model had NO handles ro flush handles

barbara 11/1/2020

Dear GOD- make a model that has NO bowe out door handles. There are kitchens where the refrigerator doo opens next to counter top. So a model with NO HANDLES should be an option to allow the door to open the additional 4-6 inches needed. I also have to say that the freezer is weirdly cramped and not suitable for anyone with more than 2 adults in the house. But the look is modern and sleek and I like that the surface is no smudge. And as you can see from pic- magnets work on this surface. But YEEEEEESH -offer a model with no handles.
