Hotpoint 30 inch Freestanding Electric Range

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

The Hotpoint 30 Freestanding Electric Range, model RB787DPWW, is priced at $549.00, which places it in between the entry level stoves and the higher end luxury models. This particular model features the ceramic glass cook top and self cleaning oven.
The ceramic glass cook top is black in color. Due to ceramic's natural qualities, this is an easily cleaned surface. The heating pads are even with the cook top around it, creating one large level space. The ribbon elements on each heating pad provide uniform heat straight up in order cook more efficiently. Ribbon elements typically heat faster than radiant style elements. In clinical tests a ribbon element responds in 3 to 4 seconds whereas the radiant elements respond in 12 to 14 seconds.
The oven has electric controls that monitor the heating range from warm all the way to broil. These controls can also be controlled with a timer for specific baking needs. The preheat bell lets the user know when the oven has reached the desired temperature. An automatic shut off can turn the machine off if left on for an extended period of time.
There is also a self cleaning feature on the oven. This function operates by delivering an extremely high temperature of heat after setting the safety latch. The high heat can clean out the oven area without the owner having to provide a lot of scrubbing action. The time display offers a cooling off period to inform the owner when the oven has finished cleaning and is safe to touch.
The window looking into the oven provides the opportunity to look inside while the food is cooking. A standard interior light allows better visibility when looking into the oven from the outside.
A storage area is located beneath the oven to provide a place to put oversized pans and dishes.
