Salesmen at Lowes told me GE drop the Hotpoint name. Is this true?

Look for the Hotpoint Difference

Judging from what I just saw when I went to the U. S. Hotpoint website (which is as always a product of GE), Hotpoint is alive and well and very much in business; to me Hotpoint was always the second-tier line of GE (sorta like the differences between Chevies and Pontiacs or Fords and Mercurys).

The BRITISH Hotpoint line (as indicated by the "Hotpoint UK") logo in the lower-right corner of the U. S. page is a product of Indesit, the Italian appliance conglomerate. (Just for fun I clicked the Indesit home page and it was in Italian!) The British page has the "Hotpoint USA" log, which brings you back to the GE products...

...however, I would not be surprised if GE's Hotpoint isn't phased out eventually because GE has so many sub-lines of its own now (Adora, Profile, Monogram), etc...GE is brand-extending its line much like Tide!
