BEST VALUE

GE GNE25JGKBB

The GNE25JGKBB is fantastic value for money, has tons of storage space, and is perfect for those consumers on a tighter budget. The device does come in different colors at various prices; however, we found the black refrigerator to be the most appealing and cheapest.

Large refrigerators are increasing in popularity. The number of appliances on the market can be overwhelming for consumers to research when looking for a new device. We’re going to narrow it down by revealing our favorite six models from American electrical company, GE.

1. GE PVD28BYNFS French Door Refrigerator

BEST GE REFRIGERATOR

4-Door French Door Refrigerator With 28 Cubic Feet of SpaceDoor in Door in Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel

  • Easily access favorite items with door-in-door and rotating bin
  • Fill containers with filtered water hands-free using AutoFill
  • Adjustable temperature drawer with removable bin caddy

Things To Love

  • Storage Space: With 28 cu.ft of storage space and many innovative features, you’ll find it challenging to fill this appliance with groceries.
  • Excellent Performance: One of the most highly rated refrigerators on the market. Even 1-Star ratings informed of retail issues rather than problems with the device,
  • Rotating Bin: This feature is simple but effective. The refrigerator bin rotates outwards to store wine bottles, milk jugs, or more substantial items.
  • Hands-Free’ AutoFill’ Dispenser: Place your glass under the dispensers, and sensors detect the size of your container and fill it appropriately.
  • Adjustable Temperature Drawer: Consumers have more storage flexibility with this feature. The ability to alter this drawer’s temperature makes it usable as a fridge or freezer. Add to that a removable bin caddy for ease of access. 

What’s Not To Like?

  • Exterior Finish: This appliance looks beautiful from the front. Stylish and modern. However, the stainless-steel finish has only been applied to the front, while the sides have a black finish. 

Final Remarks

The performance of the GE PVD28BYNFS means this appliance should be on our list. It is rare that a large French door refrigerator barely has any performance complaints. When you pair that with the massive storage space, cool features, and stylish appearance, it’s easy to see why we named this “Best Overall Model.”

Overall Score: 18.5/20

2. GE GNE25JGKBB French Door Refrigerator

BEST VALUE GE REFRIGERATOR

3-Door French Door Refrigerator With 25 Cubic Feet of Storage Space in Black, ENERGY STAR

  • LED lighting spotlights foods inside the refrigerator and freezer
  • Quick space shelf slides out allowing you to store tall items
  • Factory-installed icemaker ensures efficient ice production

Things To Love

  • Low Cost: For a refrigerator this size, the price point is extremely reasonable.
  • Large Storage Capacity: Considering the aforementioned low cost, this appliance comes with a cavernous 25 cu.ft of space. Split between the fridge (17.5 cu. ft) and the freezer (7.3 cu. Ft), and there’s plenty of room for large families’ groceries.
  • Style: This refrigerator looks like Darth Vader on the outside and a Stormtrooper on the inside. For those unfamiliar with Star Wars, the exterior is a sleek, sharp, black finish, while the interior is a crisp, clean white appearance.
  • ‘Quick Space’ Shelf: Store tall items more easily with this adjustable feature. It takes a matter of seconds to retract the shelf to accommodate large bottles and tubs.
  • Performance: The savings don’t stop with the low price point of this appliance. This refrigerator is an ENERGY STAR certified product. It meets stringent criteria set by the US Environmental Agency, so it’s good for the environment and your bank balance. It’ll cost a little over $6 per month to run. 

What’s Not To Like?

  • Cheap Plastic Interior: To keep down the cost, GE has used cheap plastics for the drawers and bins prone to cracking.
  • Limited Adjustability: Aside from the ‘Quick Space’ shelf, there is little configuration capability.

Final Remarks

The GNE25JGKBB is a fantastic value for money, has tons of storage space, and is perfect for those consumers on a tighter budget. The device does come in different colors at various prices; however, we found the black refrigerator to be the most appealing and cheapest. 

Overall Score: 16/20

3. GE GNE29GSKSS French Door Refrigerator

3-Door French Door Refrigerator With 29 Cubic Feet of Storage Space in Stainless Steel, ENERGY STAR

  • Food stays fresh with Twin Chill evaporators
  • LED lighting makes items easy to spot and retrieve
  • Two humidity-controlled drawers and one full-width drawer

Things To Love

  • Storage Space: This refrigerator has more storage space than any other device on this list. It has a whopping 29 cu. ft of space. With just shy of 20 cu.ft for the fridge, which is larger than the whole GYE18JSLSS appliance on this list.
  • Temperature Display: The real-time temperature display lets you keep your device at the exact level you want, thus ensuring your groceries remain fresher for longer.
  • ‘TwinChill’ Evaporators: This refrigerator has separate climates in the fridge and the freezer for better food storage. Avoid frozen milk and freezer burnt meats with this feature.
  • Humidity-Controlled Crispers & Deli Drawer: This appliance has yet more features built around performance. These drawers have their own humidity/temperature controls for fresher fruits and veggies.
  • ENERGY STAR Rating: Criteria set by the US Environmental Agency has been met by this appliance, making it more efficient, cheaper to run, and kinder to the planet.

What’s Not To Like?

  • Bland In Appearance: This styling for the GE GNE25JGKBB is very neutral. It’s not ugly, but it’s not going to win any awards for its looks.
  • Ice Maker Is Slow: It is not the first time we’ve mentioned slow ice production in a review, and won’t be last. I doubt it will be a deal-breaker, but many consumers have complained about how slow it is. 

Final Remarks

This appliance is all about performance. If you want a no-frills refrigerator, with tons of storage space and does what it should with minimal fuss, then this is your appliance.

Overall Score: 15/20

4. GE GSS25GSHSS Side by Side Refrigerator

Side by Side Refrigerator With 26 Cubic Feet of Storage Space in Stainless Steel

  • Flexible and robust shelf support
  • Adjustable slide-out, spill-proof glass shelves
  • Storage for all fresh foods with multi-level drawers

Things To Love

  • Low Cost: The GSS25GSHSS is the cheapest refrigerator on our list. Making it widely accessible to those on tighter budgets.
  • Spill-Proof Adjustable Shelving: While I object to the term spill-proof as you can spill liquid on the shelves, the feature stops any spilled liquids spreading to other racks. And they’re adjustable, which gives more control over storage options.
  • Water Filtration System: Fitted with a water filter, GE claims this device will filter out most chemicals, leaving the consumer with a refreshing glass of clean, cold water.
  • Energy Efficient: This low-cost appliance is energy efficient. In 2020 energy prices, it’ll cost around $7 per month to run.

What’s Not To Like?

  • Freezer Storage Configuration: If GE had put a little more thought into the freezer layout, it would have been more efficient. The ice maker also takes up a ton of space in both the freezer and the freezer door.
  • Overly Loud: This appliance can be a bit loud. Not so loud that it’s obtrusive, but loud enough to make the “What’s Not To Like?” list. 

Final Remarks

The only side-by-side appliance on our list, the GSS25GSHSS is a superb refrigerator considering its price point. It has a significant size to store all the groceries of larger families. It lacks features and style, but considering how large it is and how little it costs, it is a good trade-off.

Overall Score: 13.5/20

5. GE GYE18JSLSS French Door Refrigerator

3-Door French Door Refrigerator With 18 Cubic Feet of Storage Space in Stainless Steel, Counter Depth

  • Counter-depth design creates a sleek built-in look
  • LED lighting makes items easy to spot and retrieve
  • Quick space shelf slides out allowing you to store tall items

Things To Love

  • Built For Smaller Kitchens: Not everybody can fit a substantial refrigerator in their smaller kitchens. Appliances like the GYE18JSLSS can fill that gap in the market.
  • Quick Space Shelf: Quickly retract the ‘quick-space’ shelf to make room for pitchers, bottles, and jugs.
  • Space Saving Ice Maker: Ice makers can take up a lot of the interior storage in refrigerators. This particular device uses GE’s space-saving technology to keep space wastage to a minimum.
  • Cheap To Run: It uses 613 kWh annually. This appliance will cost you a little over $6 per month to run in 2020 energy prices.
  • Showcase LED Lighting: The GYE18JSLSS has LED lights running throughout the appliance to give it that Broadway dressing-room kind of vibe. All your foods will be instantly visible with this extensive lighting system.

What’s Not To Like?

  • Poorly Lit Display Panel: This display panel is not visible when lit, which is more noticeable during the day when the sun may be shining through your window, making it difficult to see.
  • Cheap Plastic Interior: While this is not a high-end product, the plastics used on the interior feel flimsy and cheap.
  • Loud: While it’s not uncommon for large refrigerators to be noisy when used, some models have mastered the art of silent running. The GYE18JSLSS is not one of them.

Final Remarks

This one is for those consumers with smaller kitchens who still want a stylish 3-Door French door refrigerator. Cheap to run, with some decent features. Though be prepared for a little volume from this appliance. 

Overall Score: 12.5/20

6. GE PWE23KYNFS French Door Refrigerator

  • Highly Adjustable Shelving System: The fridge shelves have many customizable options making it the most versatile device on our list.
  • Drop Down Dairy Tray: A desirable yet straightforward feature to store butter and eggs.
  • ‘TwinChill’ Evaporators: This refrigerator has separate climates in the fridge and the freezer for better food storage. Avoid frozen milk and freezer burnt meats with this feature.

  • Water Filtration System: Fitted with a water filter, GE claims this device will filter out most chemicals, leaving the consumer with a refreshing glass of clean, cold water. 

What’s Not To Like?

  • Loud Compressor: The compressor is said to be quite noisy when in use. Note that not all customers have reported this, but there has been more than enough to be a cause for concern.
  • Freezer Handle Comes Loose: The overall build quality of this appliance is quite high. However, numerous consumers have had a problem with the freezer handle coming loose, and in some cases, falling off completely.

Final Remarks

The GE PWE23KYNFS isn’t the most remarkable appliance on our list, but it’s a reliable, dependable option. It’s a good allrounder, but it excels in adjustability. It has a vast number of configurations giving you full control of your storage options.
