Hot water from the fridge? It may sound like a contradiction, but GE’s new Cafe French door refrigerator dispenses hot water as well as cold.
The refrigerator’s door-mounted dispenser can supply 10 ounces of heated, filtered water in two to five minutes. You can program it for any temperature from 90 to 185 degrees, or choose one of four pre-programmed settings: 90 degrees for warm water, 150 degrees for making cocoa, 170 degrees for making tea or 185 degrees for making soup.
Even with the added feature, the 29-cubic-foot refrigerator meets Energy Star standards. The refrigerator has an estimated retail price of $3,099.
