When I asked for your refrigerator recommendations back in March, you really delivered! You told me which brands to avoid. A few of you rather wisely advised me to buy from a source that would also repair the fridge, should the need arise. After weeks of research (plus a fair amount of procrastination), I finally bit the bullet. Would you like to meet the new refrigerator?
Say “hello” to our brand new 28.7 cu. ft. General Electric refrigerator! I selected this model because it seemed to satisfy all of the criteria I set for it: French doors; bottom freezer; quiet operation (and it is totally silent); ice maker; no water dispenser; full depth (as opposed to counter-depth); roomy main shelves, and door shelves that are wide enough to hold gallon-size containers. The finish is stainless steel.
We purchased the fridge from the same “mom and pop” appliance shop that sold us our magnificent stand-alone freezer: Cocca’s Appliances in Albany, New York. Cocca’s is a dream to deal with. When you call the shop, a human being answers the phone. What a pleasant — and stark — contrast to Lowe’s, Best Buy, and all of the other generic big box dealers.
Do I love the fridge? Well, although I’m able to love a house, to love a piano, and to simply adore a recipe, I can not bring myself to shamelessly gush over an electronic appliance. But I certainly do LIKE the refrigerator! It has a full-width drawer that can accommodate a large sheet pan dinner or tray of cookies. It’s a big upgrade from our former main fridge, a Whirlpool side-by-side.
Am I recommending this fridge to you? No way! What works well for me might prove a nightmare for you. I could not handle the stress.
One more question. Is your refrigerator running? (I always liked that joke.) xKevin
