This premium GE fridge has the coolest water dispenser ever

Kitchen & Household
[MUSIC] Hey, I'm CNET's Ry Crist standing beside the Ge Profile series French Door Refrigerator Model PFE28RSHSS. Now this is a high-end GE model. It costs $3,100, one the most expensive fridges that they sell. And they justify the cost with a very nice slate of features You've got the LCD touch screen front and center here to help you control the water dispenser and the ice maker. And it's actually a dual ice maker. You get one in the door of the fridge and another separate one in the freezer to give you a little extra ice. And also you get this temperature controlled flex drawer down at tthe bottom of the fridge. This drawer has different presets for meat and beverage and deli. So if you have cheese Something delicate that you want to keep down there at a nice, steady temperature it'll do that. But it's really that water dispenser that's the key feature here, which is surprising. Usually the water dispenser is pretty low on the list of notable features in a fridge. Not with the Profile series. This thing has some very cool tricks up its sleeve. Primarily the Precise Fill and Auto Fill functions you see there on the right. Precise Fill lets you select an exact amount of water that you want it to dispense out. So if you've got a mac and cheese recipe that needs four cups of water, just set it to four cups and hit go. Auto Fill is even cooler in my opinion. You set any pot, any glass, any pitcher down below the dispenser. You can pull this drawer out for big stuff. and it will automatically fill it up until its just about full and then stop. You can set a pot down, hit auto fill, walk away start cooking something else and comeback when your pots ready with a full amount of water. That's a very cool feature, something that I would use all the time. Still, the profile series isn't perfect. Has some performance quirks that I found it was a little bit spiky with the defrost. Some very steep defrost cycles that brought the temperature up higher than I'd like. Both in the top shelf of the freezer, and the top shelf of the fridge. Nothing that disqualifies it, though. Nothing that is a deal breaker here. It's just not quite as good as you might want at the price. Also, the usability was a little bit cramped. I had a tough time getting our test groceries in, and fitting in the bulky stress test items that we test with. And moving those shelves around was a real pain. They were some of the hardest to move around without actually breaking them that I've ever tested. All that said, if you want a high end model that's got a very nice set of features, you really can't go wrong with the Profile Got a lot of bang for that buck with those bells and whistles and that water dispenser is about as cool as a fridge feature comes. Thanks for watching. Check out the rest of our refrigerator views at cnet.com. For cnet appliances, I'm Ry Chris.
