The Hotpoint HTJ18GCTSA refrigerator is a top freezer model, which has just 18.2 cubic ft of space. While the exterior is not true stainless steel, it still looks great. In this review of the Hotpoint HTJ18GCTSA fridge, I’ll go over the positive and negative aspects of this model, then decide if it’s worth buying. This model is quite small, so it would probably work best for single people or couples. Once you start getting into the 3-4 member family range, this unit will feel very cramped. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll get with this model: can storage in the door shelf, factory-installed ice maker, clear crisper drawers, snack drawer, adjustable glass shelves, gallon door bins, and a Never Clean condenser. This refrigerator is also Energy Star compliant, so it should do a decent job at keeping your energy bills lower.
OK, onto the negative aspects of the Hotpoint HTJ18GCTSA refrigerator. Probably the main problem I have with this unit is that the freezer seems so tiny, especially with the ice maker in there. Don’t get me wrong, I love having an ice maker – however, it’s very hard to give up space for it. A couple other things I wish it had: a freezer light, adjustable door bins, a filter for the ice, humidity-controlled crispers, and spill proof shelves. I know most of these things you wouldn’t expect a cheaper model to have – so it’s not a huge loss. I think the Hotpoint HTJ18GCTSA refrigerator is a winner, as far as function goes. I do think the freezer is a little small for my liking and a couple improvements could have been added, but overall it’s a very nice little unit. I’m giving it a 4 / 5 star rating.
