New GE Refrigerators 60 Years in the Making
Sixty years ago, GE invented the first two-door refrigerator-freezer combination and today the company continues to improve upon the original. GE announced new features for both its side-by-side and bottom freezer designs.
For the side-by-side models, GE introduced Climatekeeper2 and Quickfreeze technologies. Climatekeeper2 is meant to keep foods fresher, longer and allows for a fast filling water dispenser. Quickfreeze does exactly what the name suggests: it freezes the contents of the freezer, quickly. Other new additions to the side-by-side models are customizable LCD controls and new center bevel door design.
GE has put the most work into its bottom-freezer models due to the design’s 25 percent average sales growth over the past six years. These models are meant to compliment the homeowner’s décor while saving space at the same time. In order to accomplish this, GE offers counter-depth and French door designs with streamlined ice and water dispensers that allow more room for other grocery products. Other features of the new bottom-freezer refrigerators are energy-efficient exterior LED displays, and dual evaporators that keep ice tasting pure and freezer air from getting into the refrigerator section.
