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.

Cooktop - Installation not so much

E in Leawood KS 10/26/2021

I've only had it since july since it was delayed due to Pandemic so installed mid July 2021. I LOVE THIS COOKTOP! So many great functions and so easy to cook on...It has a count down and count up feature...which is so helpful...Multiply sizes for all my pans..I couldn't be happier. When you turn off the burner it will be lit with a capital H and as it cools it becomes a lower case h. Another big feature is it has half increments...4, 4.5, 5 5.5 and so on. And very reactive to increase and decrease in cooking. Cleanup is a breeze, just be sure and buy the product recommended. I didn't mention as it seems obvious but...it's aesthetically pleasing to look at too! We went with the 36 and now i'm glad I did..it wasn't much more $ wise and totally worth it. Now, Installation...was not so great..and too long a story but finally got the clips (that were missing in the box) and got them in place. All said, I love my Bosch cooktop and I love my Bosch dishwasher (still going strong after 12yrs and I run it almost daily).

Amazing cooktop

Wandamade 10/18/2021

We spent a little extra to upgrade to this cooktop. Glad we did! Love it so much more than a gas range for low temperature and keep warm ability. Displays are easy to master with a little practice. I've been using for 6 months now and won't ever go back to gas. Very easy to clean!

Waited to long to replace our Cooktop

Chris 10/1/2021

Nothing to complain. All the functions are great. Love the design. Very useful and can say that we are all BOSCH fitted now in the household. That was the last piece to replace.

Fantastic Cooktop

Jays 9/26/2021

When the one burner on my cooktop wouldn't heat any longer, I ordered the same model but with the pandemic, it meant having to wait for Bosch to build a new one. The wait was just over 3 months but it was well worth the wait. This model differs just slightly in terms of appearance; however, it was works perfectly and I couldn't be happier.

Avoid this cooktop

Doc_C 5/24/2021

This cooktop worked great for a short time then it became almost impossible to turn on. This seems to be a common problem for this unit. I wish I had known before spending $1400 and now looking at a $300+ repair bill. I have been a loyal customer of Bosch ( 2 dishwashers, a fridge and a microwave) but this is the last time I will buy a Bosch. There are other brands that are as good and apparently more reliable.

On /off switch

James 9/26/2020

I just bought one of these. Before I install it, I'd like to know what Bosch is doing about this manufacturer defect, will I have the same problems?

Cosmetic defect

Edward 6/24/2020

I've had 36" glass cooktop 5 months when noticing large gray area in center of burner when off. Warranty only good for 30 days on cosmetic. Repairman said $600 to replace. Very disappointed with Bosch and does not speak well of quality.

Cook-top has worked as excepted

Joseph 5/12/2020

We like the cook top and feel that it is a good value. It heats fast and temperature adjustments are about as good as possoble for an electric cook-top. The burner sizes and options are great. Our only complant would be that the cook-top surface shows fingerprints very easily which requires polishing more often than our old cook-top. This is the reason I rated it 4 stars.

disappointed

Pegster 10/26/2019

My cooktop was delivered 11/11/17. In the past 2 months it has become increasingly difficult to turn the cooktop on. We have resorted to flipping the breaker, waiting 10 minutes and attempting to turn it on. We have resorted to warming our finger in hot water and placing it on the on/off switch. That worked for awhile. Today, nothing seems to work and I am having a dinner party, or not, because I need 2 burners at least on my stove. It is Sat. and I will call and schedule a service call. This sucks.

Can't turn on

JBabbs 10/17/2019

After two years of use, the on/off touch pad works only very intermittently. Will require a service call.

on/off control works only when it wants to

JTathome 9/23/2019

Purchased in March 2107 for last three weeks the on off sensor works only when it is inclined to do so. Out of warranty so it would appear I amgoing to have to replace the unit very disappointing. Last Bosch i can justify. There ought to be a recall. JTC sept 23 2019
