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

The manufacturer's parts and labor warranty is typically for only 1 year but for as little as $110 for an appliance with a purchase price of under $500, you can have peace of mind for a total of five years. Kitchen package appliance coverage plans are available if you wish to protect multiple appliances at the time of purchase.

Did you know that the average cost for a service company to come to your home and diagnose an out-of-warranty appliance problem is $100.00. Once the problem is determined, there is the additional expense for parts and labor to resolve it. Appliance repairs can range between $150 and $500.

If you are concerned about spending money on a service contract you will never need, our New Leaf ServicePro extended service plans will refund 50% of the service contract purchase price to you if no covered appliances have service calls during the extended warranty coverage period. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Avoid this cooktop

Doc_C 5/24/2021

This cooktop worked great for a short time then it became almost impossible to turn on. This seems to be a common problem for this unit. I wish I had known before spending $1400 and now looking at a $300+ repair bill. I have been a loyal customer of Bosch ( 2 dishwashers, a fridge and a microwave) but this is the last time I will buy a Bosch. There are other brands that are as good and apparently more reliable.

On /off switch

James 9/26/2020

I just bought one of these. Before I install it, I'd like to know what Bosch is doing about this manufacturer defect, will I have the same problems?

Cosmetic defect

Edward 6/24/2020

I've had 36" glass cooktop 5 months when noticing large gray area in center of burner when off. Warranty only good for 30 days on cosmetic. Repairman said $600 to replace. Very disappointed with Bosch and does not speak well of quality.

Cook-top has worked as excepted

Joseph 5/12/2020

We like the cook top and feel that it is a good value. It heats fast and temperature adjustments are about as good as possoble for an electric cook-top. The burner sizes and options are great. Our only complant would be that the cook-top surface shows fingerprints very easily which requires polishing more often than our old cook-top. This is the reason I rated it 4 stars.

disappointed

Pegster 10/26/2019

My cooktop was delivered 11/11/17. In the past 2 months it has become increasingly difficult to turn the cooktop on. We have resorted to flipping the breaker, waiting 10 minutes and attempting to turn it on. We have resorted to warming our finger in hot water and placing it on the on/off switch. That worked for awhile. Today, nothing seems to work and I am having a dinner party, or not, because I need 2 burners at least on my stove. It is Sat. and I will call and schedule a service call. This sucks.

Can't turn on

JBabbs 10/17/2019

After two years of use, the on/off touch pad works only very intermittently. Will require a service call.

on/off control works only when it wants to

JTathome 9/23/2019

Purchased in March 2107 for last three weeks the on off sensor works only when it is inclined to do so. Out of warranty so it would appear I amgoing to have to replace the unit very disappointing. Last Bosch i can justify. There ought to be a recall. JTC sept 23 2019

Cook Top touch control failure

Mr C 6/17/2019

Purchased a 36" Bosch "Benchmark" electric cook top PN: NETP668SUC (S/N 00007) for our newly constructed home. We moved in the 2nd week of Jan 2018. In March of 2019 we began having problems turning the unit on and off. 2 months later it became impossible to turn the cook top off using the on/off touch control switch. The only way to turn it off is to set all heating element settings to "zero" and wait for the unit to shut itself off. As for turning the cook top on, we're now relegated to killing the 240V power feed at the breaker box, wait 10-15 mins for the cook top to de-energize, then reengage the breaker and pray the on/off touch control acknowledges our finger touch command. Sometimes this works, other times you can press and hold the button of 5 mins straight and nothing happens. Extremely annoying…. We now find ourselves planning out meal options that don't require a stove because we have no confidence the cook top turn on. So after spending over $1,400 on a so-called "top-of-the-line" appliance we find ourselves intermittently standing outside heating our meals on a portable $36 Coleman propane burner. NOTE: At the time of this review 30% (3 out of the 10) of the reviews on Bosch's website were complaints about on/off touch control failures, and all of the failures seem to magically occur just after the after the standard warranty had expired. We purchased an extended warranty for the cook top and the Bosch Benchmark double oven we also purchased. We filed a claim with the warranty company to get the unit repaired and are still waiting for parts and personnel to show up to make the unit functional. The replacement control board cost $190. Hopefully we won't have to be replacing it every year and a half. Really disappointed in the quality of this unit.
