How To Clean A Smooth Top Cooktop and Griddle

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.

Easy to install, works well!

Doug93 9/10/2019

Installed almost a month ago. Replaced a 60 year old exposed element cooktop. The install was fairly easy, though I'm not sure the retention screws are doing much. The cooktop itself works great, exponentially better than the old one. In the lighting in our kitchen, it's hard to see exactly where the elements are until you turn them on. Overall I would recommend it.

love the flat top

pattyknack 9/5/2019

I like the cooktop but not so sure about the controls in the front, would prefer them on the side so you are not pulling a pan across the top, this is not the cooktop we were promised so we are waiting for the correct one
