Pro Has an embedded hot drink maker
Pro The water and ice dispenser is very convenient
This GE fridge is equipped with a smart water and ice dispenser. You can use the Precise Fill option to pour a specific amount of water (in cups, milliliters, ounces) into your glass or pot. A small pullout shelf provides support to bigger pots if you need the water for cooking. Auto Fill will automatically pour the water in your container until it’s almost full. This works with almost any container, and even if you already have some ice inside your glass.
Pro Can be voice controlled via Amazon Alexa
You can give your fridge voice commands using the Amazon Alexa virtual assistant. For instance, you can tell it to brew you some tea or coffee, or change the temperature settings.
Con Average performance
Given its very hefty price, even though the performance of the GE fridge is not poor, it's also not perfect. Temperature oscillates on an hour-by-hour basis, sometimes crossing above the 40°F mark, which is considered a safety benchmark. There also is a hotspot on the top shelf of the door that contains the water/ice dispenser that can go as high as 44°F.
Con Ice/water dispenser makes fridge installation and maintenance more complicated
In order to use your fridge’s ice and water dispenser, you will have to hook it up to your plumbing system. They will require regular maintenance (every six months or so): replacing the filters, doing repair, etc.
The stainless steel housing requires frequent cleaning, otherwise it starts looking very untidy from all the fingerprints and smudges.
