This French door refrigerator is what GE calls the GFE29HSDSS, also known to non-appliance dorks as a “Pretty Big Refrigerator.” Actually, it’s a French-door, meaning all of your fresh food stays at eye-level and all of your ice cream and pizza treats stay in the freezer drawer on the bottom.
GE recently rolled out an advanced water filtration system for its newer, fancier lines of refrigerators, including this model. These filters remove several pharmaceutical-related substances found in many rural and municipal water supplies. While no one’s sure of the long-term effects of pharmaceuticals in drinking water, it doesn’t hurt to filter out that stuff anyway. Who knows what could happen.
Gremlin scares aside, let’s get back to how gigantic this refrigerator is. This GE French door model has about 29 cu. ft. of space, which is almost a studio apartment in some cities. Let’s not forget about how the side-panel lighting makes your food look more attractive, like it belongs on your mom’s Pinterest board.
And don’t be fooled by the rocks that we’ve got in the water and ice dispenser (get it?) , because this refrigerator has another ice maker in the freezer drawer. That’s twice the ice for pranking entertaining.
Finally, this refrigerator also comes equipped with its own
cockpit temperature control unit right in the giant drinking water dispenser, which could fit your entire head! …Or a whole water pitcher, depending on what kind of person you are.
