About - Hotpoint RB757DPWH

The Hotpoint RB757DPWH is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the RB757DPWH are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Cooktop high:
This reflects how quickly the most powerful element could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3 quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.

Cooktop low:
This reflects how well the lowest-powered element or burner kept a low temperature as for melting chocolate. We also set the most powerful element to its lowest setting to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.

Baking:
This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.

Comment:
Used for general cooking and baking. Really like the larger oven size as it holds 6 loaves of bread. Temps of both stove and oven are accurate. Drawback is the storage drawer as it is hard to grasp and open.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
We have owned this stove for almost 2 years and it does everything a stove is supposed to do. It is easy to clean....I have never liked the self cleaning option so I just do it myself with soap and water. I often bake bread, cakes and cookies and I have had great results. If you are not a picky person get this, if you are worried about keeping up with the Jones' try a more expensive stove.

Comment:
I realized that all ovens heat differently but after double checking heating degrees with an independent oven thermometer, I found it was heating about 35 to 50 degrees lower than figure registered on range screen. There is no way to adjust this correction on the oven temperature<br />Also there is NO handle on the drawer at the bottom even tho' it does slide easily when one figures out a unique way of opening the drawer.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
