Appliances

Why NSI Protection Plus?

Our service plan is an economical way to extend the terms of your product's manufacturer parts & labor warranty.

Most manufacturer's limited warranties leave customers with no protection against the rising cost of repairs.

Even the best products can malfunction and the most minor repairs can cost hundreds.

About NSI Protection Plus

Administered by Warrantech and insured by AmTrust Financial, NSI Protection Plus is the largest service network in the industry with 30 years of building the network and over 22 million in paid claims.

The most comprehensive repair plans in the business!

  • Day one coverage on special features
  • Removal and reinstallation coverage
  • $25 Laundry credit (Washers and Dryers)
  • 5 year appliance contracts include 10 year major component coverage
  • $250 Food credit (per incident, eligible products)
  • The only true "No Lemon Guarantee" in the business
  • No "CAP" on repairs or replacement, unlimited repairs.

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.

Fantastic cook top

Great cook top 5/7/2021

We love our new cook top, as a long time gas stove user moving up to the cook top has been fantastic. Large cook surface and the ability to slide cooking pots and pans by sliding form one burner to another with out lifting. very easy to clean, all in all very well thought out.

Beautiful Gas Cooktop to Match our new Kitchen

RAF-Islip, Long Island 4/21/2021

Remodeled our kitchen and we are very happy with this 5 burner gas cooktop with led lights to tell you which burner is on which is not always easy to see and central super burner for those bigs pots of pasta or extra large frying pans. The cooktop automatically relights if the flame goes out which is a great safety feature most cooktops do not have. It is designed to be sealed for spills and easy cleaning unlike our old cooktop.

You can find better for the price

Ponce13 2/19/2021

We upgraded two years ago and love our Bosch dishwasher so much that we decided to go with their cooktop. It was the design we wanted and for the most part functions as desired. The Simmer option is too hot but the center burning boils water super fast. The stainless steel must be the softest cheapest gauge made though. We have only cleaned it with a soft cloth for SS and it looks like we use steel wool. Even the graphics in the surface are coming off. It looks SO CHEAP and we want to sell our house in a year or 2 (just appraised for $900K and our GE looked better after 10 years!!). Very disappointed and would not purchase if I could do this again :(

Replacing Fisher Paykel

Alis 4/15/2020

We purchased a high end gas cooktop 5 years ago. Unfortunately the burners went bust and replacing them would cost us almost as much as a new unit. We went back to our trusty Bosch (I worked there for 5 years) and couldnt' be happier. Love the grates and buttons, most of all some burners can be fully removed to ease clean-up.

Great, with a minor but annoying problem

Alison Lee 4/12/2020

The cooktop looks great, heats really quickly and is easy to clean. The only problem I have with it is that the simmer setting is too hot to simmer. In order to cook rice without it boiling over I have to use a heat diffuser.

Great gas stove

Greg 1/29/2020

Easy and simple. Haven't have to clean it yet but the design seems that the process will be simple. Center burner brings water to a boil much faster than any other stove I've had.

Excellent heat modulation and usability

infidel82 8/23/2019

Chunky control knobs, easy to modulate the heat and plenty of space. Easy to clean too. Ive dropped one star because it does take quite some time to boil water, nothing really noticable vs a much cheaper cooktop. That said searing is excellent on the larger burner
