Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnnGab Bought this for simmer feature :-)
Had an old gas range that was still working but tenant complaint about the missing simmer flame feature. I don't usually replace appliances in working condition as I don't want to promote the wasteful habit but tenant was negligence one time and the whole house smell like gas. For safety purpose, I started reading reviews online on major brands and various home improvement stores Website. I found the reviews on Hotpoint to be strong and most importantly, someone mentioned about the simmer flames feature. It has been 6 months and the tenant seems happy with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tomato831 High Quality for an Inexpensive Price
Was looking for a gas stove to replace my 10 year old gas bucket. I wanted something that was not expensive yet was able to withstand a daily beating of constant cooking for a family of five. After about three months with the gas stove and with no days off, this stove has surpassed my expectations. The unit runs great and the knobs really help us see how strong we want the heat (we all wear glasses). Also, the heat never diminishes and simplicity of the stove never takes away from the quality and efficiency of this stove.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Howdy So, So Review
Previously owned a self cleaning, digital controlled range. I was never happy with the way it cleaned so was looking for a good old fashioned oven that I could REALLY clean. Also, the digital controls broke several times.
The oven on this stove is fine as are the control knobs. The grates are rather thin and only after 7 months have begun to pit. They are also difficult to keep clean. It is recommend that they along with the burners heads and caps be cleaned in hot soapy water. No way does this do the job. Don't put the burner heads in a dish washer as they turn very dark. I end up using a Mr. Clean eraser. For these reasons I wouldn't recommend this range.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dale A good solid no frills stove
After Hurricane Sandy, we needed a simple stove to put in upstairs until the downstairs kitchen was rebuilt. We didn't need bells or whistles, just a dependable stove so we didn't have to cook everything in the microwave and toaster oven. I checked the reviews and this model had top ratings. Having owned it for three months, I can see why. It's a nice, solid, no frills stove. It won't tell you the time or temperature, but it will cook great meanls. In fact, it seems to cook better than the more upscale stove we had downstairs. I can't recommend this stove emough. It's a really good stove at a great price. Even at a higher price, it would be worth the money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dnoapple Decent for the price
Kind of ironic that it's called Hotpoint since the burners don't get very hot. I can boil a pot of water but it's not hot enough to keep a rolling boil in a decent sized pot without a lid. I think the burners are only 9500 btu's. We have this in our rental.
I do like that there are no electronic touch controls just old fashioned knobs so there's not a whole lot that can go wrong and what can go wrong should be easy to fix. Oven seems to heat up relatively fast.
If you're looking to buy a lower priced range simple is a good thing because it's better they skimp on features than put junky electronics in there.
Overall a decent simple range with little to go wrong but the burners don't get hot enough for some things.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dana So happy!!
In the last 3 years I have had two different brands of the highly touted electronic ovens. Repair of these high tech inventions were $$$. So I researched and found at Home Depot exactly what I wanted - a no-nonsense stove. An oven with a front knob control that can actually be adjusted by the cook without phoning a techie to come and do it!
You'all can keep those rocket science ovens - this Hotpoint does a great old-fashioned job of baking and roasting! Thanks GE for this range and thanks toHome Depot for offering it.
