This is another "electric sink" set up that was so popular back in the late 40's and early 50's. Hotpoint had a pretty good machine and was easier than most to load and unload. The early models had only a bottom rolling rack and the top one set on top of it. As mentioned before, it depended a lot on proper loading to be affective on the top rack.

Friends in Greenwood, SC had this model. They had had it for about 15 years before I visited and showed them how the upper rack adjusted height by turning it around in the frame front to back. I guess that they did not bother themselves with that since they had a full time maid, but they were amazed when I pointed it out as I was loading the machine to make room for the tall glasses with the Metlox Painted Zinnia dishes. It had a good capacity since there were like 10 of us there for Thanksgiving weekend. The single control faucet worked well. The whole kitchen was Hotpoint put in when the house was built. Oh, and when I got there, was there ever a mountain of laundry to knock out, mostly towels; just wash dry and fold. Back then, you could take the train from the station at Emory University and get off in Greenwood.
