I am fairly impressed with my new hotpoint. It was a great price, I bought it online and had it delivered. My old oven had continueing problems turning off and such.

This time I looked for the best price and went with a basic model. As long as it had a timer and a clock I was good to go. I was replacing a more expensive Hotpoint oven. So far so good. We broke it in on Thanksgiving putting it to the test. It cooked and browned our turkey evenly.

The packaging was simple and the directions were easy to understand. It took only a half hour to install it. I didn't have to light any pilot lights at all. They are all electric starters, I like that feature.

As a unit it is pretty light and easy to move around but solid enough to trust with a turkey. I think this oven will last a few good years without something going wrong. That's all I ask from an appliance.

I have spent more money in the past on appliances only to find they are not that great because they cost more, they have the same problems as cheaper ones, give or take. I'm ok with the money I spent on my Hotpoint, I got a good deal.

The flames on this gas range is horrible! I've searched online and people have had similar problems. They've tried cleaning the parts, replacing the parts and still no luck. What's the point of a stove that can't cook food? There are only 2 burners that have a decent sized flame. In order to cook food, I have to rotate food from each burner since half of the burners are weak. Read the reviews on this from others and you'll see it's a common problem. You're better off buying a stove from a more reliable company. I can't believe how bad this is.

Uneven burners.

This stove warms food, it doesn't cook it.

works like a charm

By 

from MA

Comments about Hotpoint Freestanding Gas Range:

I have owned this Hotpoint gas range for about 5 years now and I am very pleased with its performance .
The gas burners on top cook food evenly , much better than an electric range .
The oven controls are digital for preheat , bake or broil and there is a clock and timer for cooking . There is also a light for the oven to better view the pie or cake you are baking so you can peek in the window of the oven door rather than having to open it and let heat escape .

The grids that cover the stovetop are easily removeable and I toss them in the dishwasher . There is a black cover on the top that is also removeable for easy cleaning which I wash by hand - cleanup is a breeze !

One feature I do miss in my old range is that it had a " night light " that you could use on the top of the stove which is missing in this range but that does not affect performance obviously .

When I cook a lasagna or a cake in the oven , it cooks much more evenly and the temperature controls are very accurate .I love the timer that reminds me when something is done .

This is a self cleaning oven but I line the bottom shelf with heavy duty aluminum to catch the spills and just wipe them up or toss the aluminum foil as needed .

The broiler works fantastically - meat is evenly browned and cooked just like it might have been had I used an outdoor gas grill - great for winter cooking to get a grilled taste and not have to go out in the cold !

This is a basic , low budget gas stove from a brand that has been around for decades and I would recommend it if price is a concern and you do not care about a lot of bells and whistles . This stove suits all my needs just fine .

Great stove!

By 

from Davie, FL

Comments about Hotpoint Freestanding Gas Range:

I had this stove at my old apartment two years ago. The Hotpoint Freestanding gas range stove is better than the average stove. I would recommend this for anyone who wants a decent-priced, reliable stove for their kitchen.

Temperature Control
This stove is so simple to use. The controls are very easy to navigate, and the knobs are easy to turn. The oven settings are electric, so you just set it.

Heat Distribution
The heat is distributed evenly throughout the oven and it cooks the food correctly. The range on the top of the stove works great too!

Durability
I had this stove for a little over a year, and I never really had any problems with it.

Design
The design is very basic, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. It could definitely be improved, but it is not a bad design.

Ease of Cleaning
Most stoves are not very easy to clean, but this one is not so bad. You can buy cleaner at the store that is specifically made to clean kitchen appliances, and you can use that to clean your stove.

Living off the grid doesn't feel like camping anymore!

By 

from Sonora, CA

Comments about Hotpoint Freestanding Gas Range:

We were given our Hotpoint Freestanding Gas Range as a used hand-me-down appliance from a family member. We live off the grid, so our appliances must all run on propane, including this one. Prior to receiving it, we used an RV-size propane oven/range combo. It was a huge nuisance! So (as you can imagine) our Hotpoint range finally made the kitchen feel like home. We celebrated by roasting a turkey, because we could finally fit a whole turkey in our oven! It may not be huge, but we love the standard size oven! Because propane is so expensive, we can't afford to use the self cleaning option but it's a breeze to wipe down. The grills on the range are easy to wash too! The temperatures are reliable and the oven preheats quickly. The parts of the burners that produce the flames were a litrle gummed up when we initially recieved the used appliance, causing them to light and heat unevenly. We soaked them in boiling water and they worked like new after that. All in all, it's a durable appliance that's working strong and reliably in its second kitchen for a second family and going strong!

Great gas stove for the price. Basic, simple, and easy to use.

By 

from Liberty, KY

Comments about Hotpoint Freestanding Gas Range:

We bought this gas oven (since we have electric inside our home) for our cooking kitchen which is set up in our garage. We do a lot of canning and preserving, and you really need a gas stove to do that well (electric isn't responsive enough). This unit has the top spacing we needed and it did NOT have a flat cook top (which does not work well with pressure canners). We're very happy with our choice.

Temperature Control
I like basic knob controls for the cook top of a gas range. This one has controls that aren't too stiff nor too sensitive. Whatever you set them at, they stay at. The temperature control for the oven, which we don't use much, is electronic. So, you really can't go wrong. Set it and forget it!

Heat Distribution
We mostly use the cook top. The flame is easy to control and when it's set correctly (watch the color of the flame) it heats evenly and thoroughly.

Durability
Nothing fancy about this unit. It should last use a good, long time.

Design
I like the top layout, and there's plenty of room for big pots.

Awesome Cook Stove

By 

from Flat Rock, MI

Comments about Hotpoint Freestanding Gas Range:

Just a great stove for the money..

Temperature Control
I can simmer or fry foods with a touch of a button. Always keeps the Tempterature I've choose. Example simmer is really a simmer...which is important in some of dishes I make

Heat Distribution
My last stove, even though I kept it very clean, including the burners, they weren't alway even heat or flame. This tove is perfect, and all the cooking I do nothing is uneven. Baking in the oven also gives me perfect heat. My cakes are always perfect.

Durability
I love how sturdy it is. Never feel like it is steady on the floor. I use the oven lots, and even when I set something on the door to stir, I don't ever think it is going to tip over

Design
the design is a great addition in my kitchen...It looks so smart, yet it doesn't take away from how my kitchen is decorated.

Ease of Cleaning
one of the best features is the top burner area is completely sealed so the easy cleaning makes me a happy person. I love the self cleaning oven also. I do lots of baking and just a switch of a button, my oven looks brand new.

Great for Kitchens

By 

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Hotpoint Freestanding Gas Range:

I really love this gas range because it matches my other kitchen appliances, is great for cooking my daily meals and is perfect for homeowners on a budget. It has an easy to use design with great heating burners as well as an oven that evenly cooks all my meals to perfection.

Temperature Control
This range has an easy to follow temperature control and heats up in about twenty minutes for the oven, and has easy to use burners for both medium and higher heat. This cooktop is great for cooking meals on the stove and evenly bakes foods in the oven.

Heat Distribution
I like that the stovetop heats up dishes quickly and offers both medium and high heat. The oven is easy to use, and preheats to the right temperature in about twenty minutes. I use the oven a lot to bake my meals and the food is always evenly cooked and the timing is about right in all recipe instructions.

Durability
I like that this range is pretty affordable and of strong quality. I use it almost everyday to cook meals and so far have not had any problems with it. I think I will have this in my kitchen for a long time, and it never lets me down.

Design
This is a simple to use range and is great on a budget. I like that it is easy to clean and matches the other appliances of my kitchen. It doesn't have any high technology features, but is great for making daily meals in the oven and on the stove.

Ease of Cleaning
I like the smooth finish on the range and it makes it easy to clean. The stovetop has a small splashguard and the burners are easy to clean. The oven is easy to clean with cleaner, but keeps clean after many uses.

Nice Gas Range

By 

from USA

Comments about Hotpoint Freestanding Gas Range:

My husband wanted a gas range, so we settled on this one. He likes that he can actually see the flame when he cooks. I like that we can use it in the rare case of a power outage. We have been using this regularly for a few months now, and it has worked out well. It cooks food evenly and quickly. Some potential disadvantages are that if you have the flame on the lowest setting, you can't see that it is still on. One night we accidentally left it on all night. Also, it is a little harder to clean than a flat top range, because if something spills it gets into the crevices and is more difficult to clean up than just wiping off a flat surface. Overall, we are happy with our purchase, and would recommend it to other people.

Does what I need it to do!

By 

from Fairmont, WV

Comments about Hotpoint Freestanding Gas Range:

I have an older house that isn't plumbed for 220 electric service so I have to use a gas range. But, truth be told I don't think I'd want an electric stove. I have awful memories of my college apartment but I digress. I didn't buy this stove it came with my house. I like it though. I have never had any problems with it. It's easy to set and to clean up. It cooks evenly and in the time frames that recipes give. I like that I can take off the top grates and clean around the burners. It's nothing fancy. Just your run of the mill gas range. Mine is white too. I'm not sure it comes in any other colors? If I had to go in to the store today and pick out a stove, I would choose this brand. I'm pleased with it.

great gas range

By 

from Santa Ana, CA

Comments about Hotpoint Freestanding Gas Range:

we bought this gas range on black friday. many people were waiting for it. i bought the last one of course. i was very lucky. anyhow i usually use an electric gas range because i lived in an aparment. now i live in a house so i get to choose whatever i want. i really like how the gas range heat up very quickly. my old ones took forever to heat up. i usually clean this thing and it is so easy to clean! i am so glad because i am so lazy to do it. my old ones..they were hard to clean. with this gas range, it took me only 30 minutes. my mom agreed with me because she cleaned it too. it works perfectly with my kitchen space. it's not too big or small for my kitchen. the options on it are so cool and it has many options for me to choose.
