Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Terrible product

Collake 7/2/2019

I purchased this cook top two and a half years ago. This is the second cook top as the first one arrived and only two burners worked. A few months back while cooking two burners also blew. Kitchenaid agreed to pay for 50% of the part. The part is $650 not including the service. Just received a call from the service personnel and they will not even service the appliance if it isn't under warranty. He believes it will break again and he would be stuck with the cost. Kitchenaid will do nothing except to tell you they feel your frustration. $2400 for a product that doesn't work. That is frustration and the company could care less. Stay far away from this product and any Kitchenaid as they do not stand by the product themselves. I will never purchase another kitchenaid appliance.

Great Temperature Control

Stone 4/26/2019

This is our 2nd Kitchenaid Induction cooktop. We have always had gas stoves and liked that we could adjust the temperature so quickly but did not like how difficult it was to clean the cooktop. When we built our new house we decided to try a Kitchenaid 36" Induction cooktop and we loved it. It has the same ability to control the temperature as a gas stove and the glass cooktop is a breeze to clean. When we decided to move again we chose the 30" Induction Cooktop. It boils water so quickly, able to control the temperature and is easy to clean.

Efficient and fast heating

theshark 1/9/2019

U was not too sure about getting an induction cooktop. Now that we have had it a while Iove it. It hearts things up so fast and cleaning up spills is a breeze. The only down side was having to get pots and pans that were magnetic.

Fire in electrical

Cgyguy2 9/16/2018

Like all other KitchenAid products that we purchased for our reno, this is the last of the lot that has now failed and could have caused a house fire! Last night while cleaning up from dinner, a foul odor was smelled in the glass top. Smoke started to billow out from the underside of the cooktop. In order to stop the electrical fire, we had to shut the breaker off. There should have been a fuse installed to blow and not be allowed to continue to burn without having to shut the breaker off. Had it happened in the night, we may be talking a different outcome.

Cook like a pro without gas

Fantito 4/14/2018

I'm amazed at how much control I have over the food I'm cooking, very close to a gas burner. I've only had it for 3 months so I'm looking forward to learning even more ways to cook delicious meals.

Great cooktop

Happy wife - Happy man 12/29/2017

Got this put in before all the Christmas holiday cooking. My wife is soooo pleased. She really couldn't stop talking about her new KitchenAid induction cooktop to all our guests. She loves the controls. She loves how is can melt and hold. She loves the way she can adjust the temperature settings. She loves the "burner" placement and how all the pots and pans fit. She loves having no control knobs in the way. The electronic touchpad is great and easy to use.
