The Hotpoint Model HTH17CBTWW
is our second choice for a cheap refrigerator review. This
fridge is for people really looking for a low price
refrigerator, but still want quality and a decent name.
At around 450$ the Hotpoint certainly fits the
bill. Overall storage space on this model is 16.6 square
cubic feet, which is a a good deal less than the Maytag, but of
course this fridge is also 180$ cheaper. It all depends on
your space needs-this is great just for a couple or a family of
three, maybe four, but any bigger than that and you probably
need a bigger fridge.
Feature wise the Hotpoint is fairly
slim. You do get gallon door storage and crisper drawers.
However the crisper doors are not humidity controlled.
This fridge is both UL listed safe, and Energy Star compliant.
These are great benefits for a low priced refrigerator.
Operating costs should be low given the energy efficiency
There is no built in icemaker in this fridge.
The shelves are made of wire. Temperature controls are
analog and they are located in the front of the main
So that's about it for
features-what we're looking to see at this price point is a
quality build and that the refrigerator does what its supposed
to do. Look below to see the user cited comments.
