The interior is just as plain-looking as the exterior, and offers a combined 17.5 cubic feet of storage space, 13.5 of which are in the fridge compartment.

Autofill Pitcher

The standout feature is the Autofill Pitcher. Dock it in place on the top shelf, and the fridge will automatically begin filling it with water, then automatically stop once it's full.

Patience, please

Just be sure to let it fill all the way back up before you pull it back out. It you interrupt the fill, the dispenser will dribble onto the shelf.

Cooling power

At its recommended setting, the fridge kept the main body shelves below 40 degrees, but everything else ran warm (hence all the orange).

Coldest setting

At that coldest setting, performance looks a lot better, with spot-on temperatures in the body of the fridge, and only one hot spot of note at the bottom of the door (that hot spot at the top is the butter bin, which is designed to run warm).

The GE GAS18PSJSS sells for $1,000, which is a little bit pricey as top freezers go. Is that Autofill Pitcher worth it? Check out our full review for the final verdict.
