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.

Love the instant power. Controls take some time...

choochoo 9/27/2019

Love the instant power and love the easy maintenance of the glass top. The controls are not as responsive as I'd like especially with messy or wet fingers. It's also two steps... one to select the burner and one to set the temperature. Knobs would be great, but it would disrupt the clean look. Also the installation was pretty straightforward as long as you follow the detailed installation instructions. Not a fan, though, of anchoring the cooktop from below the countertop. Any repairs then means we have to remove our built-in oven first.

Bosch Induction Cooktop

Mike 3/20/2019

The appliance is amazing. Once we obtained induction cookware, the cooking experience was everything we had hoped for. It's a very "clean" look and is equally easy to clean. I couldn't be happier.

Love i nduction heating

Claire 2/21/2019

Bought the unit a couple of months ago. Have had a lot of problems with one set of burners spontaneously shutting down. Technician has decided to change out a board which he thinks is defective.

Horrible cooktop. Terrible tech support service

nanckekr 1/23/2019

I bought this cooktop about one month ago. Installed it three days ago. The burners randomly turn off by them selves while cooking. We are VERY careful to place the cookware in the center of the burner and we use Staub cast-iron cookware, which should be ideal for induction. Sometimes the burner turn off after 5-8 minutes, sometimes after 17-18 minutes. The tech-support will send a technician out in two (2) weeks from now. I think that is unacceptable for a new high-end product. On the video you see how the center burner is at power level 7 while we cook, and then suddenly turn off and say the burner is hot "H" and then the other indicators go out too. Not impressed.

Great features, works amazingly well

SVBoy 12/11/2018

I bought this almost 12 months ago. Dimensions, instructions for install were perfect and enabled my cutout to be adjusted once. All the heating spaces can be on at the same time. The half precision in the temperature controls is really good for fine-tuning the temperature especially when you looking multiple dishes in a row (multiple omelettes) and want to maintain a good temperature. The boost heat gets water boiling in a real jiffy, much faster than gas. the responsiveness of the heating elements is as good as gas but the clean up is 100 better because you can wipe it off so easily. No scratches yet inspite of using heavy items on it. I love the timer function and have used it multiple times to leave things on and have them go off automatically. before i would have to babysit the pots on the stove and invariably get to them after they have burned to boiled over. This is a real good device and well worth the money.

Love induction cooking!

Accidental cook 3/20/2018

I bought the 36" 500 Series induction cooktop for my kitchen renovation in November 2016. It took a few days to get used to, but overall, it was really easy. It cooks evenly and quickly. My favorite feature is the independent timer for each burner that automatically shuts off the burner when done. I set timers for each burner. Perfect rice and no more mushy veggies. I also love the huge central burner for my all-in-one pot meals. With 5 burners available, I can cook any meal. Sadly, we were just transferred to a new state and I miss this cooktop so much that I plan to get it again.

Quality product

clifhngr 3/2/2018

I bought this cooktop to replace another brand that was failing. We love the induction cooking experience, so we decided to stay with the same type of cooktop. We were looking for a quality made product that will last. After doing extensive research, we decided to go with a Bosch. I just installed it yesterday and it works great. Now we will wait as see about longevity......
