The dispenser uses built-in sensors to detect the size and capacity of your vessel. It worked like a charm in our tests with a variety of different glasses, pitchers and pots.

The display will count up ounces as it dispenses your water.

With a single tap, the water dispenser's Autofill feature will automatically fill your glass or pitcher without overflowing.

If you need some extra space to fill up a large-sized pot, the bottom shelf pulls out to offer additional support.

Inside the fridge, you'll find a wide pantry-style drawer called the TempSelectZone with three temperature presets. The lights inside change color as you switch from one preset to another, then again whenever you open the doors thereafter, giving a subtle reminder of your setting.

All in all, the fridge boasts 27.8 cubic feet of storage space, 18.6 of which gets allocated to the fridge. I was able to fit all of our test groceries and stress test items inside, but it was definitely a bit of a squeeze.

Part of the problem were the shelves that sit against the back of the left door's in-door icemaker. They're too narrow to be of much use.

Plenty of room up in that butter bin, though. You can also lower that "Drop Down Tray" that nestles into the bottom of the bin, creating an extra shelf.

The PFE28KMKES kept the body of the fridge below 40 degrees at its 37-degree default setting, but two of the the in-door shelves crept up into orange territory (the butter bin in the upper right gets a pass here -- it's meant to be a little warmer than the rest of the fridge).

We tested again, this time with the fridge dialed down to its coldest setting of 34 degrees. The results were a little better, but not much different.

The GE PFE28KMKES retails for $3,000, with an equally-equipped stainless steel model available for the same price.
