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.

Great stovetop!

Rena 8/30/2017

We have only had this cook top installed for a couple of weeks but it is working very well so far! The downdraft fan works well and while it does "pull" the flame to the side slightly, the burners still seem to work well. The one thing I love is how easy it is to clean after use - much easier than our previous glass cook top!

Great Cooktop

Kathe 8/15/2017

This is a wonderful cooktop. One of the best things about it, is the continuous grates. You can move pans around easily without spilling. I have not really used the very small burner yet, so I do not know how useful it will be. The rest of the burners have enough btu to heat up fast. I have been waiting to switch from electric to gas for 20 years, and I am very pleased with my choice. I absolutely love it.

Great Appliance

Hunt 7/20/2017

My wife is ecstatic with this. Appearance and quality is so much better than previous piece of cooktop. Only criticism is that it is a 6" duct for downdraft and I had 5" that was piped enclosed to the outside of my house. Space is tight to make the connection. Otherwise, totally happy. Was impressed with the packing and ease of putting it together. Directions were very thorough.

Good product with one key issue

Fahmida 7/15/2017

We loved the design and functionality offered in this product at the time of the purchase, We had no option but to chose a downdraft center unit and were aware of some issues related to gas unit with downdraft from friends using similar products. Once the product was installed we found out we cannot use any burner in low heat setting with the fan on. It takes out heat AND the ignition function keeps clicking. The problem does not surface when burners are on medium or high heat.
