Having lived in two apartments over the past couple of years, I’ve come to realize the importance of appliances. Refrigerators, to be exact. In my old Berkeley apartment, the refrigerator was crammed into the narrow kitchen — meaning you couldn’t swing the doors open all the way because they were blocked by the wall and the counter. Can you imagine my frustration when I tried to put pizza boxes inside? Did I notice this when looking at the apartment? Nope. I was too busy being fascinated with the brand new carpet, granite countertops and great location. Bottom line? You use your refrigerator everyday: Indulge in one you love!
GE Appliances has a style for everyone, whether it be side-by-side refrigerator/freezer or refrigerator on top and freezer on bottom. My current combination is a side-by-side door refrigerator on top and pull-out freezer on the bottom.
You hardly ever think about the refrigerator even though it’s being opened all day long. I pretty much grew up with my fridge, noting my height with which shelf I could see over. I even remember when we got our first fridge that dispensed water. I thought it was the coolest thing in the world.
When I think of technology, I think of cell phones, computers and media players. But GE Appliances has advanced along with the rest of technology by stepping it up with kitchen appliances. Their refrigerators have LED lighting for greater visibility, an advanced filtration system for the water and even a space-saving icemaker. Here’s a little peek at what I’m talking about:
Living in the Bay Area, specifically being so close to Berkeley, I have access to multiple farmers’ markets and locally grown food. I’m constantly searching for ways to make fruit and vegetables last longer in the fridge, since it’s just my boyfriend and me in the house, and we can go through only so much food at a time. From vinegar washes to freezing fruit, I’ve tried quite a few methods. The GE Frech door fridge has a dual evaporator system for longer food life, which is great plus for foodies like me!
Another feature that I admire is the full-width deli drawer. Normally the drawers are so narrow and deep that I end up having to dig through all the items in order to find cheese or fruit. Having wide drawers allows me to see exactly what’s inside the drawer without making a mess.
Still have doubts about the fridge? Check out GE’s Freshpedition, where they drag a French door refrigerator 2000 miles to bring a fresh-cooked meal to a homesick man!
