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.

BHH FLC 11/24/2019

This cooktop has the range of heating that our cooking requires. It is a huge improvement over our orginal Bosch Cooktop we purchased 20+ years age.

This is a great cooktop. We are builders and have had many cooktops over the years and this is by far the best we have had. Highly recommend!

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

YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED!

DISAPPOINTED TO THE MAX 3/20/2019

When we redid our kitchen, we decided to buy what we wanted and not worry about the price. We were upgrading to gas--so I had my heart set on a Bosch. After years with black tempered glass, I was looking forward to cooking on Easy Street--WRONG! There is nothing I like about this pricey cook-top! First off, the stainless steel is extremely soft-surfaced. I wipe with a wash cloth leaves a scratch wherever you touch it. Greasy cooking on this thing? Just try to get it clean without digging into the stainless! The knobs come off for cleaning, but the little rubber gaskets drop inside when you pull the knobs off. That extra little "simmer burner" is an absolute disaster. Whoever wrote the copy on this thing must have never tried to melt chocolate or leave an expensive-to-make pot of chili on it! Just to use it, I have to place a rack that suspends the pan about 5" over that simmer burner! Already have had to dig a burned ring out of the bottom of a pot--luckily, the chili didn't have a burned flavor--but would have. Okay--the brand name BOSCH might impress a guest or two, but if they stick around for the clean-up, they're going to see one disappointed cook fiddling with this cooktop when she ought to be able to have coffee with the rest of the party. BOOOO, Bosch. NEVER AGAIN.

Love the low profile!

rocky13 3/14/2019

We recently purchased a BOSCH stainless steel, gas cooktop to replace our exsting black ceramic cooktop. Very pleased with the new look and features. It has a "simmer" burner in the back that we did not have before, and we are putting it to use! Very easy to pick up only 3 grates to clean!

High Quality Cooktop

Sam M 12/12/2018

This cooktop has many features I wanted: Metal knobs with backlighting, two simmer burners, 20,000 btu burner, quality grates, and sleek look. I would give 5 stars if the stainless wasn't so sensitive to scratching.

Hot!

Van01 8/28/2018

We previously had a cooktop that was not very hot (on LP). This one is terrific; heats fast and simmers (on some burners) as well for easy control.

Not worth the money

Frustrated Cook 7/1/2018

I purchased the Bosch stainless steel cooktop less than a year ago and it already looks a decade old. The product claims to be made out of steel but I think it's actually made out of aluminum because it scratches easily. Don't waste your money on this product. Learn from my mistake and test the durability of the product at the store.
