GE fridge doors have been making soup for a couple of years now–with hot water dispensers built right in. Now GE is building a Keurig coffeemaker into the door of its new Cafe Series French-door models. The single serve Keurig has been a hugely popular machine, creating and then dominating the market. But they take up counter space. GE’s fridge door solves the footprint problem.
In a news release GE said two-thirds of its French door refrigerator owners requested the coffee maker in surveys. Also part of the much ballyhooed “Internet of Things,” the coffee maker will be wi-fi enabled and programmable from your smart phone.
