Hotpoint

Hotpoint is a household appliance brand. Ownership of the brand is divided between American company Whirlpool, which owns the rights in Europe, and Chinese company Haier, which owns the rights in the Americas after acquiring GE Appliances in 2016. The name Hotpoint is derived from the hot point of the pioneering first electric iron. Earl Richardson (1871–1934), an American, invented it in 1905 and established his ‘Pacific Electric Heating Company’ in Ontario, California, in 1906. The device was dubbed the Hotpoint iron because its hottest point was located in the front rather than the center.
