Hotpoint RB757DP Review
Good Electric Range
This electric model stands out for its large self-cleaning oven, timed and delay bake, and even performance.
Hotpoint RB757DP reviews generally agree that this budget electric range is a worthy buy in terms of features and performance. A consumer products testing organization commends the heating abilities of both the electric coils and the oven, noting that water comes to a boil in short order, temperature-sensitive foods simmer without burning, and the oven browns foods evenly; the self-cleaning cycle also wins points for wiping out traces of sticky, gooey foods. Home users' Hotpoint RB757DP reviews at Home Depot are likewise laudatory. They say the oven is devoid of hot and cold spots, such that pie crusts don't need to be wrapped in aluminum foil to assure a golden finish. The cooktop controls are responsive, according to Hotpoint RB757DP reviews, and can hold stews and sauces comfortably below the boiling point.
On the other hand, a few Hotpoint RB757DP reviews grumble about the thin oven racks, the hard-to-clean drip pans beneath the electric coils, a storage drawer under the oven that must be pulled open from the side, and oven temperatures that don't rise to the desired setting.
Although the Hotpoint RB757DP is considered a basic, no-frills stove, it comes with several noteworthy features. There's a self-cleaning cycle, a timed- and delay-bake function, electronic oven controls, and a bell indicating the end of the pre-heat cycle. The oven cavity is a generous 5 cubic feet and the door sports a see-through window; the broiler is located in the oven. The cooktop holds two 6-inch (1,500 watts each) and two 8-inch burners (2,600 watts each). This model is available in white and bisque, both with black oven doors. It comes with a one-year warranty.
The consensus opinion of the Hotpoint RB757DP: a good, reliable electric stove at a good, affordable price
