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.

Heats to boiling fast!

Andrea 10/27/2019

I love the feature of boiling a pot of water quickly. It also evenly heats cookware.

Unpredictable functionality

leftfork 10/22/2019

I'm about two years in with this cooktop and now it's starting to have a bunch of issues. Mostly, it seems to overheat. Yeah, you read that right - a five burner cooktop that overheats. I looked at the installation directions which stress the importance of airflow underneath, which ours has, but it still runs into over heat issues and we're forced to either not use it or reset the breaker several times a week. I've called customer service and they've forced us to call our local repair techs. Once they arrived all they did was call Bosch and go through their live troubleshooting. That cost us $200 and we still don't have a repaired unit. I wanted this cooktop to work but so far it's been a huge disappointment.

Speed Boost works fast!

Andrea 9/5/2019

The speed boost feature is outstanding. It boils a big pot of water in five minutes! I also love the fact that several big pots can be cooking at once. The burners heat up pans fast.

First timer

Bert 8/23/2019

First experience with induction; couldn't be more pleased. Been using daily for 2 months and continue to marvel at the cooktop's capabilities and the joy of induction cooking.

So fast, so pretty

Debbie 7/5/2019

I love how fast it boils water, how consistent the temp is for simmering and how easy it is to keep clean. I'm still getting used to the touch controls and it's a little hard to see where the burners are, but it's getting easier the more I use it. So far no problems. This is my first induction cooktop. We do not have an option where I live for gas, and this cooktop is so superior to any radiant electric cooktop, I can't imagine why anyone would buy one.

Fun to use

Kathy 3/15/2019

Great Cooktop

Donna 12/11/2018

We bought this cooktop for our new home and I love it. I love the layout of the cooktop. The quick heating of the induction cooktop and the fact that the cooktop itself stays cool to the touch are definite pluses.

Fantastic induction

Mimi 5 12/11/2018

I've searched for months to find a 36 inch induction cooktop. Actually this was our gift to each other for last Christmas,2017. Finally this October it was installed and well worth the hunt and wait. Absolutely love this cooktop!

Awesome Induction cooktop

Plee 10/27/2018

We completed our kitchen remodel in May and have been using the Bosch Benchmark Induction Cooktop for 5 months now. We are loving the cooking. It boils water faster than any gas or electric cooktop I've ever used and I work have worked in a lot of commercial kitchens. It is very easy to clean and it provides more work space when you not using it. I also love how you can use two burners together when you have a big rectangular griddle. The other great thing about the cooktop is that it is very safe for the kids to use. There are no open flames and once the pot/pan is off the burner, it stops heating. There are also 3 timers(kitchen, cook and count up) which are very useful.

One year experience using the Flex Induction Cookt

Retired Guy 10/25/2018

Review of 36" Flex Induction Cooktop This review has mixed results. Firstly, Even if natural gas becomes available in our area, we would not switch from induction cooking. My wife loves to cook and prepares several meals each week on our Bosch induction Cooktop (left overs fill in the remaining meals). When we bought this 1970 house after retirement I moved the kitchen into a different room and so everything was new. Induction requires the purchase of new pots and pans (always a plus) suitable for use with induction. The pans heat up almost immediately as does their contents. Temperature control is precise and the 17-point digital temperature selection, easier to control than a gas flame. Power boost gives added heat to pots when selected. We have only noticed a little additional noise on Power boost mode, noise being something that people comment on in Induction cooktop reviews. While cooking, the glass surface, not directly under a pot, remains cool and my wife can put spoons and papers on it. A trick which we have not used because we don't use deep fat frying, is to cover the glass with paper to keep the surface clean. So, overall, this cooktop works as designed, is easy to use, is easy to clean, and as a plus, reports the kwh used each time it is turned off. Now for the bad. Because we were building a new kitchen, we bought all of our appliances months before they were installed. Less than a year from the time the cooktop was electrified, the on-off switch started to misbehave. By the time I called Bosch for a service call, the 1 year warranty was well expired. To their credit, Bosch offered to repair this cooktop under warranty as it was still new. We had bought two other large Bosch appliances at the same time and I had rejected all the notices to purchase extended warranties for these products, not believing they were needed or worth it. Even though the Bosch product design may be strong, these cooktops are filled by thousands of small electronic parts trying to function in a hostile environment of heat and electro-magnetic radiation, the failure of one of which may kill the cooktop. As I wait for my cooktop to be repaired, I have purchased a 2-year extended warranty for almost $200/year. My advice to people who want an induction cooktop, regardless of brand, is to purchase the extended warranty when offered as these items are fragile and very expensive to repair. Our experience with this product has in no way reduced our desire to own Bosch appliances as we still appreciate their quality, design, and features.

responds like gas but does not work with cast iron

bluecrab 6/8/2018

I am very happy with this cooktop but a bit disappointed that it does not work well with cast iron. I can get my dish started on the cooktop but then if it something that is going to cook for any longer then 10 minutes, I have to move it to the oven because the surface gets so hot it shuts off.

Cooktop with all the bells and whistles!

TreeHouse 10/20/2017

On the advice of my kitchen designer, I recently installed the Benchmark FlexInduction cooktop in my kitchen. It's performance is amazing - very responsive and easy to use (and understand the controls). It heats up very quickly but just as impressive ...you can adjust the temperature down just as fast. the bridge allows you to place a pan (or pans) anywhere on the cooking surface, which allows for multiple pots. It looks so sleek and modern, its the perfect addition to my kitchen.

Faster than gas!

Terry98988 10/14/2017

Love the efficiency and control with this cooktop! I've only had it for a week, so am still slightly intimidated by all it can do! With time and experience, there'll be no looking back!
