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.

Nice but needs to rearrange burners

Sanj 8/9/2019

I've wanted a Bosch induction stovetop for some time now and got one when I needed a new stovetop on my new house. The stove works very well and I have no complaints about its function. However, I wish I had looked more closely at the location of the four burners. Bosch has placed the two larger burners in the back and these two burners are so close to each other that when I have two large pots at the same time (such as making pasta for the family) with my downdraft vent working, the stove gets to be very crowded and difficult to use. A better design would have staggered the large and small burners rather than placing both larger burners at the back.

Puffy 8/8/2019

I love induction because it's quick. This is a great cook top and I was able to work it without reading the book BUT you need to understand that the line are where to pot belongs. I was used to a GE and the burners are determine by a circle this is different. Works well has a clean look and like all Bosch appliances it comes with beeps!!!!, If by mistake you put an item on it BEEP BEEP BEEP! This is the world we live in.the refrigerator beeps, the dishwasher beeps the oven beeps as well as this cook top. At time it's an orchestra .....but great products

very disappointed

janis 4/16/2019

I bougth this cook top over a year ago. I even drove to Irvine, CA to the BOSCH demo kitchen to get help but I'm still so frustrated with this cook top. Yes it bring water to a boil quickly but then you add you pasta & 30 sec later it is boiling over!!. I ususally cook pasta on high but not on this one- you have to lower to 8 then to 7. Rice is a disater. I need to watch it for the 1st 15 min because it boils over then when you lower it nothing happens for 10 min then it simmers - so I lower it to 4 for 6 min then lower it to 2. What a pain. Also when ever you try to adjust the temp you need to punch & punch the button & listen to beeping. If your sleeve drags across the panel it turns off. the only thing I like about it is it easy to clean but you are cleaning it freq.

Dream experience

Lois 3/25/2019

The very first time I turned it on, I fell in love with the simplicity of use, the EVEN cooking across the entire pan bottom, the speed of cooking without burning or overlooking. My bacon actually stayed flat & all cooked at the same time without having to constantly move the bacon so it wouldn't burn or so it would cook faster. My morning coarse ground oatmeal cooks perfectly in record time. Eggs are another food I love cooking that can be a problem getting just right on some cook surfaces. Simple things but it demonstrates the ease, accuracy & efficiency of this cooktop. I have brought several neighbors in so I can show it off. I actually enjoy cooking virtually everything. Experimenting with recipes is so much more pleasant when you understand the complete control you have with this Bosch Cooktop. I chose Cuisinart cookware which is the perfect pairing. I'm thrilled.

Over-designed, annnoying beep, very hard to clean

Mary 12/27/2018

I've had induction cooking since 1996 and love it, but not this one. Wish I could find one w/o the black glass top that shows every speck and smear. Told not to place anything on it! Ridiculous. This is so over-engineered. Using it is labor intensive and too complicated. Wish I hadn't bought it but too late to return and most seem similar in features. Why do people review a product they just got and haven't no experience with?

Mariah 12/11/2018

I was a little hesitant about purchasing an induction cooktop. The model we bought was a little pricey but it was totally worth it. The feature that I like the most is that I don't have to waitnso long for my skillet or saucepan to heat up. Love it.

Chief W5 12/11/2018

I had this installed in my new home. Learned to cook on induction when I lived in zgermsny and won't cook on anything else, especially only on German products. They are long lasting, stay looking good and this is the best cooktop I've had yet.

Love it, but the layout could be improved

jae1708 12/11/2018

This was our first time using induction and we're loving it. Two things that could be improved - the panel buttons could be bigger... there's so much room so it feels weird that they're so tiny. And the layout... The top two burners are really close to each other so if you're using the big one then the pot on the left cant quite sit on top of the burner. I wish there was more space between the burners

Love Bosch products....But

Snowyval 11/30/2018

I love Bosch products. My kitchen is all Bosch and has been for many years. This is our 2nd induction cooktop and the changes they made in design are not user friendly, at least if you are cooking on it. I do not like that both smaller cooking areas are both in the front. The middle size one is the one most often used and should be in the front like the older model. I also do not like to have to scroll through the temperatures to get to where I want. It was much easier to simply select 5, or off, for that matter. When you have two or more areas going, it's ridiculous that I have to hold the digital sensor down until it get to zero to turn off one element. It was much easier on the older model to select the area and touch off! No brainer. It is also very "touchy". If I lean over slightly to stir a pot in the back, and my sweater touches the cooktop the whole thing beeps and turns off. So annoying, as is the sound of the beeps....very grating. That said, I still like Bosch products, but the changes in this design were a step backward for someone who cooks a lot.

Really love this cooktop

JP11 4/21/2018

When we bought our cooktop three years ago, I had to get rid of some of my pans, including a new set of T-fal received as a gift from my mom..... It was worth it though. I love our cooktop. It's efficient, it cleans up nice, I wanted a gas cooktop, but when we reconfigured our kitchen, it wasn't possible with the new layout, and I'm so thankful it worked out that way. I love the induction heat. The boost feature boils water in an instant. We're now finding ourselves in a position where we need to replace it, as a bottle fell from the cabinet and landed on the edge of the cooktop and cracked the glass. I'm sure hoping that we purchased the extended warranty, as $1500 isn't in the budget right now to replace it... fingers crossed.

Best appliance ever!

Linda H 4/3/2018

I always dreamed of having a gas cooktop, but live in an area that is all electric. No more! Just completed a kitchen reno, and decided to go with induction based on recommendations of kitchen designers and reviews online. Ignored naysayers who fear having to replace cookware. So glad I did. This cooktop heats food fast and evenly, and the control for sauteing or simmering is fabulous. Always said my old Siemens/Bosch dishwasher was the best appliance ever, but it's been beat by this cooktop. Highly recommend! BTW, you'd be amazed at how little cookware you actually need. I decided to wait to cook for a awhile before purchasing a new set; and now I've decided to just "fill in the gaps" with a few things I'm missing. So, don't let cookware deter you from going induction. It's great.

Great Induction Cooktop

CrowMom 3/26/2018

We have had this cooktop about a month and love it compared to our old regular electric cooktop. We decided to go with Bosch because we knew we would get a quality appliance. Induction cooking is great, you have great control over your cooking with the digital selection. We love the Speed Boost selection, it boils water and steams instantly (saving time and energy). Clean up is easy & simple because food does not burn onto the cooktop. It had a bit of a noise when you first start to cook but it gets quieter as you continue to cook.

Fantastic stovetop

jlib 11/30/2017

This is our second Bosch Induction stove top. Our first sold with our previous home when we moved. We purchased another brand induction stove top because it was Immediately available for our new home. We had it for about three years before we became so dissatisfied, we just removed it and purchased a new Bosch. The quality and the caliber of the Bosch product is far superior and meets all our expectations. We have also purchased a Bosch oven, dishwasher and refrigerator. No other brand matches the beauty and superior features. When we had the other brand, I was at a appliance store where a couple were shopping for a new stove top.They were not familiar with Bosch or induction cooking. I stepped in and told them how I felt about our previous Bosch Cook Top. They ended ordering one and I told both them and the salesperson if they weren't thrilled with it they could contact me and I would buy it. It wasn't long after that we ordered the one we just purchased.

Happy with induction

Srq Travelqueen 5/29/2017

New condo only offered electric and I am a preferred gas cooktop girl. Chose induction hoping it would have the control of gas. I am pleased with my choice. Heats quickly, adjusts immediate and after cooled it cleans up very easily, much more than gas. Not sure I like the placement of the sizes as the large is toward to the back and longer reach to saute' than with my prior Thermador gas range. Chose Bosch as this was a 30 amp opposed to the Thermador requiring 40 amp.
