PROS / The water dispenser includes a Keurig coffee maker.
CONS / There aren’t many support options available.
VERDICT / The GE PYE22PMKES has an impressive design with uncommon features, such as Wi-Fi capabilities, that make it a handy french door refrigerator.
The GE PYE22PMKES is a decent-sized french door refrigerator with an 80 percent efficiency score for using, on average, about $80 worth of power during a year and for being Energy Star compliant. This french door fridge has a sleek, stainless steel design that also comes in slate. Both exterior types are protected with a smudge-proof barrier to keep fingerprints at bay.
With over 22 cubic feet of total storage space, the GE features five adjustable, spill-proof shelves and three bins within the main refrigerated section. Six side bins in the door give additional storage, including three gallon-sized bins to hold large, bulky containers and make them more easily accessible.
The dairy compartment is covered to keep sensitive dairy products, such as butter, from absorbing the odors of other, strong-smelling foods. It also features a dropdown tray that extends the dairy compartment to easily store and secure additional items, such as cartons of eggs.
In the deep freezer compartment, there are two tiers with split bins to help you keep stored food organized. The drawers are constructed of durable plastic and can store a combined total of 7.2 cubic feet of food.
Two unique features of the GE make it one of the best french door refrigerators. The first is the Wi-Fi feature. You can sync the electronic LED touch controls with a GE mobile app. This enables you to set temperature controls, stop or pause dispensing ice, or lock the controls so children don’t accidentally change settings.
Another fun feature is the included Keurig coffee maker and dispenser. Designed as part of the water dispenser, and controlled by both the refrigerator panel and the mobile app, this coffee maker heats up water and dispenses coffee when programmed to do so, reducing the need for more appliances. This design accommodates large containers, like pitchers and tall glasses. The temperature control allows you to decide how hot you’d like your water or coffee when it’s dispensed. This feature does take away from the size of the ice bin, though. It only holds about a pound of ice at a time.
GE includes a standard one-year warranty for parts and labor with its french door fridge. The water filter only has a 30-day warranty, but there is a five-year extended warranty on the sealed system, which is the parts that keep the refrigerator cold.
There aren’t as many support options for this fridge as with higher-ranked french door refrigerators, but live telephone support is available. User guides are also available on the GE website.
The GE PYE22PMKES offers a sleek design and extra features, including Wi-Fi capabilities and a Keurig coffee maker. There is plenty of storage space in both the freezer and refrigerator compartments, with designated compartments for dairy and gallon-sized items. There aren't as many support options for it as other manufacturers offer, but telephone support is available.
