GE Adora DSHS6VGBSS 25.9 Cu. Ft. Side by Side Stainless Steel Review

The GE Adora DSHS6VGBSS is a member of the Adora line, which is for sale exclusively through Home Depot. Despite that level of exclusivity, there’s very little that distinguishes it from other side-by-side fridges.

Introduction

Not available through any other retailer or website, the GE Adora DSHS6VGBSS is a member of the GE Adora line which is for sale exclusively through Home Depot. There's very little that distinguishes it from any other side-by-side fridge: it's quite large and has a traditional interior layout. In fact, the only thing we found remarkable about this particular appliance was how poorly in it did in our performance tests. With questionable temperature outputs in the fridge and freezer, disappointing moisture retention, and far too long of a freezing time, the GE Adora DSHS6VGBSS is only worth getting if you're dead-set on purchasing a side-by-side but find the other choices too expensive. It's not a horrible appliance, but there are much better models available on the market for a reasonable cost.

Much in the same way that Kenmore's exclusive deal with Sears limits sale opportunities, Home Depot is the only retailer selling this fridge and so price hunting is essentially pointless. That said, the MSRP for this fridge is $1499, but at the time of this writing, Home Depot has it for sale at $1298; it's a hit or miss depending upon what's on sale and when.
