As a counter depth model, the GE GYE22HSKSS will fit seamlessly with counter tops and cabinets and, along with the sleek steel finish, will help give your kitchen a streamlined look. While being a counter depth fridge freezer does mean some reduction in internal storage space, this model still boasts 22 cu. ft. of capacity - similar to the GE GYE22HSKSS, but the likes of the Frigidaire Gallery FGHB2868TF offers more. Clever storage options mean there’s still plenty of space to store your groceries. The Quick Space shelf creates a taller space in between the refrigerator shelves without moving the shelves by allowing the front part of the glass shelf to slide under the back part, quickly creating space for large bottles. Two crisper drawers provide storage for fresh produce while ensuring it stays fresher for longer and six door bins create even more storage space.

A full-width electronic temperature-controlled drawer allows you to choose from three settings to customize the environment for a range of foods, while Turbo Cool and Turbo Freeze features prevent foods from melting or spoiling while loading in your groceries.

The built-in water and ice dispenser not only provides you with convenient and perfectly chilled drinks, but an advanced filtration system removes impurities from the water too.

GE GYE22HSKSS review: User Reviews

User reviews are really enthusiastic about this model, giving the GE GYE22HSKSS an average score of 4.5 out of 5. The majority of reviews comment on the roominess and excellent storage options within this counter-depth fridge freezer, with a number of them mentioning that the design makes access easy and convenient. Other users also mention that the setup, combined with the LED lights makes it easy to quickly see the contents of the fridge.

The size of the freezer is also a real plus point for users. They note that it provides more storage space than expected.

The stainless steel finish is particularly popular, with users noting that the finish is sleek and stylish and some going so far as to call it ‘beautiful’. Other users say that it’s easy to keep clean and they haven’t had problems with fingerprint marks. 

The odd review has noted that the ice maker can be noisy at night, but it was difficult to find many negatives within the reviews and most users said they would recommend this model to friends.

Should you buy the GE GYE22HSKSS French door refrigerator?

French door fridge freezers can be bulky and take over a smaller kitchen with their imposing size, but going for a smaller option often means sacrificing space within the fridge freezer. The GE GYE22HSKSS has managed to circumvent these problems with a counter depth model designed with clever storage solutions to really make the most of the space it does have available.
