GE Adora DSHS6VGBSS 25.9 Cu. Ft. Side by Side Stainless Steel Review$1,499.00
This was one of the more expensive fridges we tested as far as electrical costs. Frequently, high energy prices are offset by quality energy distribution, but that wasn't the case here, either. Not only does it cost a lot, but the GE Adora lacks the high energy efficiency of other models out today.
The GE Adora was disappointing in every test that we conducted. Temperatures in the fridge and freezer had even more of change from top to bottom than is usual for a side-by-side, freezing times were much longer than we like to see, and moisture retention wasn't quite adequate. There's nothing about this fridge's performance that really earns it any praise.
The fridge portion of the GE Adora was about average in terms of storage space. The amount of room available in the freezer, however, was one of the few good things about this appliance. Despite the large ice maker, there was actually more storage in here than in many other side-by-side freezers.
Shelf access is actually quite good in the GE Adora. Most parts are quite easy to get to, despite the narrow nature of a side-by-side's compartments. The only real hassle there is with the drawers in the fridge and freezer—all of them have some issue, whether it's plastic-on-plastic stickiness that makes them hard to open, or not coming out far enough to make accessing the contents easy. One other positive aspect, though, is the control panel: they're intuitive, easy to read, and very simple to use.
