Tackle More Dirty Laundry in Fewer Loads

High-efficiency (HE) topload washers are the fastest growing product category
in home laundry appliances. The new GE high-efficiency topload washer features
the industry's largest capacity (five cubic feet) for toploading models while
using less energy and water than a traditional washer. In addition to its
efficiency, consumers will appreciate the time-saving, convenience-focused
features on the new GE ENERGY STAR^® washer, including SmartDispense™.

GE Heats Up the World of Refrigerators

Some of the most common daily hot water usages in the home include preparing a
bowl of oatmeal, making tea or warming water for hot cocoa. The 29-cubic-foot,
ENERGY STAR^® GE Café™ French door refrigerator is the first refrigerator in
the industry that can accurately heat 10 ounces of water in minutes—ideal for
steeping delicate, white tea to quickly preparing food for the kids. The hot
water dispenser lets consumers select one of four pre-programmed settings or
choose their own temperature with confidence.

Frontload Washer and Dryer Are Great for Clothes and Your Body

Although manufacturers recommend buying pedestals to raise the height of their
washers and dryers, about 60 percent of consumers forgo the added expense and
end up kneeling on the floor or straining to reach their laundry. GE has
improved the frontload laundry experience by offering the industry's first
built-in risers and largest openings on frontload washers and dryers, making
laundry easier on the body.

New Convection Technology Makes Baking Easier for Aspiring Home Cooks

Aspiring home cooks strive to evenly bake food from perfectly browned pies to
expertly crisped turkeys. GE's new wall ovens feature the latest European
convection cooking technology with new vents on the oven's ceiling that
provide significantly increased air flow and great cooking performance. And,
because great food shouldn't come with a sacrifice of time or convenience, an
iPhone^® and Android™ app lets consumers control the ovens with Wi-Fi access.
