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

Whenever you purchase a new appliance, we highly recommend that each customer considers purchasing an extended warranty. The reason is simple, all manufacturers offer a standard warranty on their products, generally one year for parts and labor. However, once a year passes you're responsible for all repair costs and replacement parts if anything happens to your appliance. Extended Warranties are inexpensive and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

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
