As many Appliance manufacturers, Hotpoint started with innovation – an iron where the tip was the hottest point and not the rest of the body as in other irons. Then it started offering the full range of appliance units to its clients. The brand now owned and manufactured jointly by European and USA appliance makers.
Here in Canada it is sold at Home Depot as a budget line of appliances, being around $200 less than an average unit. The line is simple but functional, with simplified features and straightforward construction.
Unfortunately, in June 2017, a Hotpoint FF175BP model fridge freezer turned out to be the cause of fire in London’s Grenfell Towers that killed 79 people. The owners of models FF175BP or the FF175BG manufactured between March 2006 and July 2009 are advised to contact the company for a safety check.
Overall the brand was built to last and it is common to see Hotpoint Appliances that have been in use for 15-25 years. Appliances of other brands now are not expected to last that long.
Hotpoint units do not contain sophisticated electronics. French doors with water dispensers for fridges or front loading options for washing machines are not features you find in HotPoint appliances. Nevertheless, there is still a demand for HotPoint appliance repair.
