You may inform simply by the proportions that the GTS22KSNRSS’s freezer is big. Thankfully, its fridge additionally manages to cram an honest quantity of cupboard space into its smaller compartment.

Prime-freezers, on common, are likely to have smaller freezers than different kinds of fridge: They common 3.85 cubic ft, whereas different varieties common within the 4- to 6-cubic-foot vary. The GTS22KSNRSS distinguishes itself by having a freezer with virtually twice the cupboard space as the typical: a large 6.35 cubic ft of cupboard space.

This huge freezer is the GTS22KSNRSS’s foremost promoting level. So, in the event you’re stocking up on frozen meals or in any other case out there for a fridge that doesn’t skimp on freezer area, the GTS22KSNRSS is considered one of only some choices that provide this a lot storage.

Its crispers will hold your veggies from prematurely wilting

The crispers may not appear like a lot, however they’re simpler than what the typical finances fridge presents.

The success of this fridge’s crispers throughout our testing stunned us, as cheaper fridges sometimes have crispers which are simply fundamental plastic drawers. Whereas these crispers positive do appear like fundamental plastic drawers, they’ve bought a hidden expertise associated to humidity loss, in that, they’re vaults of good circumstances for preserving your greens. These crispers solely misplaced about 0.16 grams of humidity per hour, which is a greater fee than the typical of 0.2 grams per hour.

This implies the GTS22KSNRSS will assist your leafy greens retain their crispness for longer than the typical fridge, whereas nonetheless letting sufficient humidity escape to forestall issues from rotting too rapidly.

What we don’t like

We suggest turning down each the fridge and freezer, to carry temperatures nearer to what’s perfect for meals storage.

Whereas this fridge by no means goes over the 40°F threshold the place micro organism proliferates quickly, the GE GTS22KSNRSS positive will get shut. Temperatures all through the fridge ranged from 39.04°F on the coldest to 39.93°F on the warmest.

Whereas the fridge’s glorious temperature consistency retains temperatures only a hair on the right facet of meals security, we nonetheless suggest calibrating it to be cooler: 37°F is the best temperature for storing perishables.

The freezer has the identical challenge, solely barely worse. The place the freezer ought to stay as shut as doable to 0°F, the GTS22KSNRSS had temperatures starting from 4.47°F to 10.15°F. You’ll undoubtedly wish to flip down the temperature right here, as a result of between its heat and fewer constant temperatures you’ll seemingly run into issues with freezer burn.

House owners of the GE GTS22KSNRSS appear to love it, awarding it a median of 4.4 out of 5 stars throughout main retailers.

Those that fee the GTS22KSNRSS extremely reward its capability, or simply voice basic contentment with the service it gives them. Those that don’t just like the fridge level to its freezer’s heat, or just state it’s of a low high quality, with out specifying what component particularly disappoints them.


GE presents the industry-standard one 12 months guarantee that covers components and labor. Whereas some producers, like LG and Samsung, assure sure components for as much as 5 or 10 years, these fashions additionally sometimes run a bit dearer than the GTS22KSNRSS.

Perhaps—When you don’t thoughts paying a premium for the additional cupboard space

Our complaints in regards to the GTS22KSNRSS are pretty minimal and straightforward to beat. Positive, its fridge and freezer run a bit heat out of the field, however that’s why calibration exists. When you’re previous that hurdle, this unit has comparatively secure temperatures in each its fridge and freezer compartments, and presents considerably extra freezer cupboard space than the typical mannequin with this design.

The GTS22KSNRSS is the quintessential fundamental fridge. It performs its perform and doesn’t go far past it (although you should buy and set up an non-obligatory ice-maker).

Nonetheless, regardless of the fridge being fantastic, its worth is just a few hundred {dollars} increased than what it ought to be for the efficiency and performance it presents. When you wouldn’t have a lot challenge with the GTS22KSNRSS if it wound up in your possession, we don’t actively suggest buying it both: There are higher choices on the market.

Take a look at the superb Haier HA10TG21SS, our present decide for greatest worth. It has even higher temperature efficiency for a fraction of the worth, although you’ll get a lot much less capability than the GTS22KSNRSS.
