GE Profile refrigerator is a top-freezer model that's energy-efficient

The spacious, flexible GE Profile is an Energy Star model loaded with features including an internal water dispenser with a filtration system, a factory-installed automatic ice maker, and digital climate controls.

The GE Profile 24.6 cubic foot refrigerator is an Energy Star-compliant top freezer model with plenty of storage options.

Top freezer models tend to be more affordable than side-by-side and bottom-freezers. However, at more than $1,600, this model #PTS25LHSBB is on the higher end of the price scale.

That said, this is an Energy Star model loaded with features including an internal water dispenser with a filtration system, a factory-installed automatic ice maker, and digital climate controls, instead of a dial and electronic sensors, that let you customize how you cool your food.

Inside, there are four adjustable glass shelves that are raised at the corners so they are spillproof. Three of the shelves slide out for easy cleaning or for switching to accommodate bulky food.

There are three clear, adjustable gallon-size door bins for holding bigger containers and one full-width refrigerator door bin made to accommodate tall bottles. There's also a deli drawer and fruit and veggie crispers with electronic sensors that adjust the humidity. A digital display shows the exact temperature of both the refrigerator and freezer.

A versatile shelf-saver rack holds a 12-pack of beverages, two egg cartons, or a 9-inch-by-13-inch casserole dish.

The freezer has one main tiltout bin, one shelf, and a fixed-door bin. This model is equipped with FrostGuard that activates to protect food from freezer burn.

For the budget conscious, this Energy Saver model, which is 35.86 inches wide, uses 475 kWh (on a 445 to 520 scale) with an annual estimated operating cost of $43.

This model runs quiet, as it's equipped with GE's most advanced sound-control system.

It comes with a one-year warranty on parts and labor.

This featured model is black, but the refrigerator also comes in bisque, white, and stainless steel, (which is about $300 more than the other models). It retails at about $1,645.
