Now here's an interesting Hotpoint all-pushbutton range. Anyone know what year?

I think...

That is the FIRST pushbutton Hotpoint...I think it came out in 48 or 49.

I agree, both it is a pretty stove, and with Hans' estimate of 1948-49. One of the many neat features on these is the 'built in' salt and pepper shaker, on the left side of the control panel.

Hey, there's the address of the Hotpoint plant! (that I believe has been demolished.)


5600 W Taylor St, Chicago, IL.

The "keyboard" controls were the wide white ones mounted horizontally with the colors at the back of each button in GE ranges. The wide button idea migrated to high end models with slanted control panels in both Hotpoint and GE, but without the lighted colors for the heats. These clear buttons glowed with the color for each heat. Hotpoint was so out front with flair and gadgets. Unfortunately, this also began the era of hidden bake element foolishness for Hotpoint, I believe.

Thanks Tom,

I realized after posting that 'keyboard' wasn't the correct nomenclature, that's what I get for being in a hurry! Such a stunning stove, too. -c

Color and light are such wonderful things among the delights of the senses.
