New refrigerator offers filtered hot water for drinks and cooking
Point-of-use water filters make it easy to provide clean water for your family. And there's no more frequent point of use than the kitchen refrigerator.
GE'snew Café French door refrigerators features an advanced water filtration system. The system has been tested and certified by an independent third party to remove 98 percent of five trace pharmaceuticals, such as ibuprofen (a painkiller) and progesterone (a hormone).
In addition, the filter is located in the door for easy replacement, while also freeing up valuable space in the refrigerator.
There's also an odor filter is designed to allow the consumer—at the touch of a button—to reduce unwanted odors within the fresh food section.
The 29-cubic-foot GE Café French door refrigerator is the first refrigerator in the industry that can heat 10 ounces of water in minutes—ideal for steeping delicate, white tea or preparing warm, filtered water for baby formula.†
A custom setting allows the consumer to select a temperature from 90 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit, or select one of four pre-programmed settings, which include 90 degrees for warm, 150 degrees for cocoa, 170 degrees for tea and 185 degrees for soup. With the Café's hot water dispenser, consumers can be assured they are quickly getting an accurate temperature for their filtered water.
The refrigerator is Energy Star certified and the MSRP is $2,999.
