Waste Not – Want Not. GE French Door Fridge to Keep Those Foods Fresher!

August 27, 2012

I love having fresh food in our kitchen — from our local farmers’ markets that run from April to October to finding organic produce during a Target run.

What I don’t love is how I’ve owned refrigerators that don’t keep fresh things fresh. You know the kind. You purchase these gorgeous carrots and zucchini and go to use them only to find that they are frozen, soggy, wilted or covered in mold. All in the crisper drawer.

We go through fruit and vegetables so fast here that it’s incredibly frustrating to find that even a portion of it has gone to waste. Although it goes into our compost bin to help make the kind of rich soil the desert lacks it still means that we just threw money down the drain.

Why rush to eat these in a day or two if there is a way to keep them a bit longer?


GE has come up with a revolutionary concept with their new French Door Refrigerator that allows fresh foods to stay fresher longer by regulating the humidity levels in the drawers with a dual evaporator system for longer food life.

To prove their point, GE took their French Door refrigerator, filled it with some of the freshest and most delicate food they could find, hooked it up to a generator, and drove 2000 miles into the desert to cook a meal for a homesick scientist. Did the food make it? Watch the Freshpedition here.
GE’s French Door Fridge
also has the most advanced ice and water filtration system for drinking and cooking, an auto-fill dispenser that fills 90%-95% automatically and is large enough for a cooking pot (how nice is that?), a temperature-controlled deli drawer and LED lighting for greater visibility.

Although we recently purchased a new French door fridge, I have to say that looking at GE’s French Door refrigerator makes me swoon a little. One of my favorite features is the hidden shelf — for those holidays when someone brings an unexpectedly large dish or for a shopping trip where everything’s on sale. It offers a way to fit a little more in, with shelves that can be moved and taken out easily.

    We have a GE Profile French Door fridge and LOVE it. Good to know that it works in more ways than we realized!

    What a remarkable test for the GE refrigeratora I was very impressed with it. I will have to go see one very soon and I hope the guys had a great trip back home. I guess it made a engineer that built it seem more human with the different situations they encountered and he did very well even enjoyed them after he let himself relax. He is really a genius to biuld such a engenious refrigerator for us. To. Be able to enjoy. The chef also did a great job even when he really didn’t think it was going to be all he was being told. Great job and I enjoyed watching your trip and what a great surprise to the biologist out there in the wild. Kudos to all of you and to GE.
