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.

Nice Cooktop but potentially dangerous

Jere 8/26/2017

The cooktop has a nice design but is not particularly powerful. While there are other KitchenAid cooktop that are, this was the only one that would fit in the cutout space in my granite countertop. Like the very low burner settings. The only cooktop I've seem that actually does a 'simmer' without burning the contents of a pot. my biggest concern is that the burners only auto-ignite when the knobs are 1st turned on so if you turn the knobs to quick the gas will be on but doesn't have time to ignite or if for some reason the flame goes out (e.g. on lowest setting and the A/C comes on and blows the flame out) . This could obviously be dangerous! Disappointed the say the least.

Hard to keep clean

vrb 8/4/2017

It's hard to keep this cooktop clean, and when you do clean it properly, it takes 15-20 minutes to remove and wash all the burner parts, grates, and knobs. The sticky label that was on it was so hard to remove that I scratched the surface trying to get it off. also, none of the burners have completely even flames, even though the booklet says they should. The cooktop wasn't installed completely level, but that's not your fault. However, all that aside, I love cooking with gas. The range of burner options is nice, seems to be effective for all kinds of cooking.

Excellent Cooktop

Mr. Warmth 4/16/2017

We bought this a month ago and glad we did. It is beautiful, well built and easy to install. We had just upgraded to a new KA dishwasher and refridgerator, this was the final piece. My only negative would be that the knobs turn left as opposed to right. This seems a bit counterintuitive. Our last KA cooktop was left to right. We are getting used to that now.

Great cooktop

Jean 4/7/2017

The cooktop was installed 2 weeks ago and I am very pleased with it. This was a replacement; we had to purchase a cooktop based on the granite opening size, so I was not able to get the brand I originally wanted. The salesman recommended the KitchenAid, and since we have a KitchenAid dishwasher and we are very please with, we went with his suggestion. I am happy with the burner and knob layout and the cooktop looks good in my kitchen. It works great and I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Kitchenaid cooktop

Joy 3/30/2017

I'm very sorry I purchased this cooktop and I wish I could return it. The reasons: When I used it the first time, I got some small oil splatter on the stainless steel part of the top. It oil spot spread like the way an oil spot would spread on your clothing. The instructions say to use warm soapy water to clean it, which I did. But I missed a spot and the next time I cooked, the oil spot turned brown. Warm soapy water did did not clean it. And there were no other options on the instructions on how to clean up a small spatter like this. Now I can no longer use this burner as the oil spatter will just get worse as it heats up. Now when I cook, I have to cover the whole cooktop with foil in order to keep even the smallest spatter from getting on the stove. Mostly I use my microwave and electric frying pan. The other problem with the cooktop is that is is uneven. The front burners tilt toward the front and back burners tilt towards the middle of the stove. I would not recommend this cooktop to anyone.

Poor Design

Manny 3/15/2017

Builder provided a KCGS356ESS with new home. Unfortunately, it won't boil your standard 4 quarts of water to make pasta even using the middle burner, the so called 'power' burner. The water gets hot but no hotter than a really hot bath. As a result, you'll be challenged to boil pasta, potatoes, or make larger quantities stews/soups/chilies, etc... not sure about frying. Anyway, I suspect the grates are too high. I measured 1 3/4 inches to the bottom of the pan on the right front burner and 1 1/2 inches to the bottom of the pan on the middle burner. I confirmed my suspicion by placing a pot with 4 quarts of water directly on top of the burner to get it to a rolling boil. To be clear, the stove does boil smaller quantities of water so if you only eat ramen and hard boiled eggs, then this stove is for you. I suppose I have to choices (1) grind the nibs on the grates to reduce the height of the grates by maybe a 1/4 to 1/2 inch or purchase a portable induction cook top capable of boiling larger pots of water.

Good Cook Top

M the Non Cook 2/25/2017

We are very happy with this cook top - but we believe the Grates should be slightly lower so that they are closer to the burners - some items take too long to cook due to the height. Also, the Grates do not fit snugly into the slots created for them - the slots need to be a little deeper so the Grates do not slide.

Great Quality

Mary in her happy home 2/18/2017

We bought this 36" range as an option in our new home. Great choice! I love the 2 large burners and the melting disc for the smallest burner. Previously, my other gas range only had one large burner and it was a challenge at times to constantly switch things out that needed a large burner. The small burner with the additional melting disc is a very nice convenience. When I want to melt chocolate or make gravy even, this melting disc performs the job so nicely. The knobs on the range are great as it is metal through and through. I don't have to worry if the knobs will break off. The range itself is very easily to clean. All parts come off with ease and can easily put back together in minutes.

Beautiful but not functional

Brunie 12/26/2016

I purchased this beautiful looking stove top as I had recently purchased a Kitchenaide Oven that worked very well and looked lovey in my newly remodeled kitchen. I thought, well its the same brand so it must be good. I was very disappointed! I agree with Maverick The Runner from PA. The grill is too high and it takes forever to cook not to mention the amount of gas used. We cook for 9 adults and 5 kids at our house on a daily basis! Is it possible to exchange for another Kitchenaide cooktop as I have had the cooktop for only 1 month?

This cooktop has been installed by the builder, we have upgraded to this one thinking it's good design but really useless inefficient design. It takes lot of gas to boil food.

The KitchenAid gas cooktop was a great value and has performed exceptionally well. It replaces an older model Dacor black glass 5 burner cooktop.

As a new homeowner, I am so happy that gas was an option. I haven't had a gas range since childhood, so I have a learning curve ahead of me. So far I am loving it!
