Everyone is so connected to everything these days; you can make so many things in your life happen at the tap of a finger or a quick swipe across the screen of your smartphone. Depending on which way you swipe you can either get a date or order Korean BBQ take out. Heck, you could be sitting at your great aunt’s house for vacation, and answer your doorbell, turn off the air conditioner, unlock the doggy door and restart the washing machine.
GE Refrigerator with Keurig Brewing System! Yes, WITH Keurig!
I love. I mean a lot of the apps and gadgets out there do make life if not better, then at least a little more enjoyable. I The gadgets that make my life easier do things like brew strong coffee, drill holes and tighten bolts, and they inflate tires and floaties. Until about two weeks ago I had little to no interest in household gadgets or appliances. You guys know where I’m coming from on this one. I like what my wife likes when it comes to appliances; this tactic saves hours of appliance shopping. Besides, she keeps up with all the latest in gizmos and gadgets, so I trust her opinion.
About two weeks ago we received our GE refrigerator bottom freezer. So what you say. It’s a fridge. Yes, it is a fridge, but its more than that. Although this model does not have the Wi-Fi capability, there is a kit offered to make it Wi-Fi compatible. They do have models that come ready to connect. After you download the app to your device of choice, you can monitor your refrigerator, set alarms and even set it to brew your coffee. That’s what I said. Brew coffee.
Why is it so special you ask? THIS FRIGGIN FRIDGE MAKES COFFEE! Yup, we are the proud owners of a French-Door Refrigerator with Keurig® K-Cup® Brewing System, and it makes some BOMB coffee. And I love it. I never have to fill a countertop coffee maker with water again, because my new fridge already has water hooked up to it and I jumped for joy when I was able to clear off a little counter space.
Now in the mornings all I have to do is; when I walk past the refrigerator to wake the kids in the morning is tap the heat brew button and let it do its thing while I’m getting my son dressed for school. When we are done all I have to do is load a Keurig k cup into the pod, place it in its holder on the fridge, select the cup size and hold the brew button for 3 seconds put my socks and shoes on and my cup of fresh hot Joe is ready to go.
Obviously, that’s my favorite feature of the GE French-Door Refrigerator with Keurig® K-Cup® Brewing System but it’s far from being its only asset. It is a very sharp looking unit. Stainless steel and it fit right into the cabinet where my old fridge was. Now I’m a do it yourself guy to the bone, but I was happy to let the delivery men assemble and install the refrigerator. Sweet! No extra work for me. Yes, two wonderful men brought the fridge inside and hooked it up, they did everything. The only thing I had to do was sweep under my old fridge! Normally getting a new fridge is such a pain, we have to call over a few friends to help get it inside. I must admit it was nice to just have it inside and set up in less than 30 minutes.
The stainless steel matches our kitchen perfectly. And I love the side by side top door design; they open wide and everything is with very easy access. I was shocked at how quiet the ice crusher in the door is, far quieter than most. The water dispenser is also quiet; I don’t hear the valve shock in the water line with this unit like I did with our old one, I can’t explain that one, but I don’t hear it anymore. The only drawback to this fridge is the space in the top seems small compared to our old unit, but they do have larger sizes.
We have the GE Refrigerator with Keurig Brewing System 22.2 Cu Ft Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator! If you have a large family, I do suggest you pay close attention to the size, but then again it has it’s good points too. Seriously, I have to clean it less because there isn’t all this extra room for my kids to pour themselves a glass of milk while standing half in the fridge. It never fails, they always spill it and pretend like they didn’t see it lol.
Another cool feature it has; is the lighting it has tons of lights. If you open this thing in the dark for a midnight snack, make sure you’re ready to be blasted with bright LEDs. So if you go sneaking into the fridge at night, remember to either turn on a light or don’t look directly into the fridge until your eyes have had a moment to adjust.
The Keurig® K-Cup brewing system is by far my favorite! Brewing coffee at your fridge, does it get better than that? Well, honestly it does because this GE fridge also has hot water scheduling. Yes, I love that I can schedule the hot water with the GE Appliances Kitchen App! When I get up in the morning’s, everything is ready to go. It’s going to be so nice this winter. Oh did a mention you can even select your custom temperature or choose from one of the programmed temperatures? My daughter loves that she can make hot chocolate without it being 900 degrees and having to wait for an hour for it to cool down so she can drink it.
I don’t want to forget to mention the precise fill. Everyone in the house knows how to work this but Mattie, lol. She is still young, so it’s funny to watch her. She will hold the cup in place until it has enough water in it to hold the water button down by itself. Once the cup is almost full, she starts yelling for help because she doesn’t want it to overflow and she forgets she just has to pick it up, lol. I giggle about it now, but I can’t count the times remember being her shoes, as an adult lol.
I’m sure you can imagine how handy the precise fill is. It comes in handy even when you are cooking and need a certain amount of water. Put up the measuring cups and use the precise fill on your new fridge.
Even though I wish we would have gone with the GE fridge in the next size up, I have to admit the refrigerator is spacious, well designed, and we have not had any issues fitting everything in the fridge. Plus, I have noticed the fridge stays cleaner. What I think is ti because there is less space so my kids don’t believe that they can pour themselves a glass of juice inside the fridge lol. Sounds like a great idea, but they always manage to make a mess. Cleaning up the fridge less is a added plus. Maybe smaller is better, even with kids. HMMM, something to think about.
I do love my new GE fridge and would definitely recommend to my family and friends. Oh, and one more awesome thing bout this fridge is that you can save some big bucks on it right now at Best Buy!
