This french-door style refrigerator by GE is a freestanding model that offers quite a large capacity with a moderate, affordable price-tag.
Construction: The GNE25JSKSS is an affordable refrigerator with a large capacity. The 24.8 cubic feet of total capacity is divided between 17 cubic feet of the fridge and about 8 cubic feet of the refrigerator. It comes in stainless steel, white, black, and a slate finish that is only offered by GE. The refrigerator has a water dispenser and an icemaker as well. There is ample storage in the form of adjustable shelves and door bins. The refrigerator is equipped with a full-width deli drawer and two crisper drawers with separate humidity controls. On top of that, the shelves are spill-proof.
Function: The GE refrigerator is great inasmuch as it maintains stable temperatures, which prevents the spoilage of food. But, you might need to calibrate the temperatures a bit lower than what GE suggests as it might run a little warm on the temperatures the company suggests. Other than that, the fridge can maintain temperatures through repeated opening and closing of doors with no problems. The refrigerator is equipped with an auto-defrost feature and a Turbo Cool setting that uses extra energy to bring the internal temperature to the required level when the doors have been opened.
This best refrigerator with internal water dispenser has the water filter at the top right corner. One of the shelves can be used as full-depth or half-depth, depending upon your use. There is enough room to store your gallon cans in the door bins, and there are two virtually tiny bins all the way down on the doors that can be used to store things like margarine tubs and baby food.
The crisper drawers, being two separate ones, allow you to store fruits and veggies separately. Also, since each one has its own humidity controls, you can calibrate them differently.
Cleaning & maintenance: This best refrigerator under 2000 has spill-safe shelves. These shelves are slightly raised at the edges, which allows them to contain minor spills. So if you accidentally knock over some liquid in the fridge, the shelves will contain it and give you just enough time to wipe away the spill before it drips down in the fridge and creates a big mess. However, it is just for minor spills and will certainly not contain major ones.
When cleaning the outer surface of the appliance be sure to not use abrasive pads and cleaners as you might end up damaging the surface irrevocably. Just wipe clean with a soft cloth and gentle cleaners.
Seasonally, remove all the fixtures that can be removed and give the interior a thorough cleaning. To ensure your seasonal cleaning remains seasonal and not monthly, make sure to clean away any spills or food residues as soon as you spot them.
