I'd say Hotpoint.

Definitely Hotpoint.  Good call, Lawrence.

Hotpoint - 2 questions

ovrphil's profile picture
I must be getting old(understatement)...I could not think "Hotpoint" ..but knew it reminded of one.

So...1) Do those buttons light up? And if they don't, didn't Hotpoint have a stove with colorful buttons that had some lighting to them? I want to say, Cory Heistercamp has a Hotpoint stove with this feature. And if anyone has a photo to show off of what I'm talking about, it would be nice to see a photo of that stove and better, the panel close up.

2)Does that stove have 2 outlets on the far right? Or is one a panel of black switches to turn on panel lights?

3)Were Hotpoint stoves like this, generally without oven door windows?

Thanks anyone - just curious.

I think the two items on the far right are convenience outlets (ungrounded).  This range does appear to have a fluorescent lamp, but for the life of me I don't see a switch.  But then, it's not the best photograph, either.


I also think Hotpoint did have colored switches (color based on heat), but not sure if this range uses those switches.


I (again) think this is about a 1953/1954 model, not TOL but not BOL either.  Anyway, GE did not offer oven windows in their products that early.  GE began to offer oven windows starting in 1958.

Lawrence -

Can you imagine the excitement when windowed oven doors arrived? It's like black and white tv going to color...well, not a great analogy.

If Cory Heisterkamp reads this, he has the stove with colored switches and I'd like to know, are there lights behind these switches? I wouldn't expect it to be individual, but a material that might transmit light in a panel behind the switches. I may be dreaming.

Thank you for your help.

I'm not sure when the first electric range with a window in the oven door came about, or what brand it was, but I think my '53 Westinghouse was one of the first.
