As of 2019, the American rights to sell Hotpoint appliances are owned by GE Appliances, a division of Chinese manufacturer Haier.

Hotpoint Kitchen Appliances
If you need a new top freezer refrigerator, dishwasher, or range, Hotpoint has you covered. If you're looking for French door, side by side, or bottom freezer refrigerators, you'll have to look to other brands. For example, Amana is another value brand owned by Whirlpool that offers side by side and bottom freezer models. If you are looking for stainless steel appliances, Hotpoint doesn't make them, but Amana does.
Hotpoint offers gas ranges and coil top electric ranges in 30" widths, as well as a few models in 20" and 24" widths for apartments. They have one microwave model in the over the range style. Most of their appliances are available in black or white, and occasionally in bisque. They also make a few compact refrigerators and chest freezers.
