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 and 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.

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

36" induction mistake

Submitted by jau123 - 10/25/2021

this product has been experiencing issues since we took ownership of the house but since our builder was a 10 months over schedule the appliance warranty expired. nothing but issues with d0 and now f0 alarms that keep the unit from operation. constantly powering the system off for a time period described int the help line but it won't reset. we spent over $10k on a complete samsung appliance package including a $3.5k combo microwave/oven wall unit that has the handle falling off. completely disappointed over longevity of product after only two years of use.

Beautiful and cooks well, but "neat" chefs beware!

Submitted by dobeman73 - 12/14/2018

I've had this cooktop for about a year and a half I guess. Overall, I love it. It does everything it's supposed to do and the noise is something you get used to. However, being a glass cooktop, I am constantly trying to wipe it while I cook. I just don't like a "dirty" surface. But each time I do, everything shuts off. There's some auto-shutoff mechanism that "detects spills" and shuts things off. But it doesn't stop with spills. Even wipe a damp rag across it and you'll be drying it, blowing it dry with your mouth and then turning EVERYTHING back on again. In hindsight, I don't think I'd buy this again. It is extremely frustrating to be in the middle of a 3-burner meal and have everything shut down time and again.

Bad service

Submitted by sobad - 7/27/2018

We have used it less than a year and it quit working. After 4 service calls and 3 weeks later it is still not working. And Samsung is refusing to replace it. I am ready to throw it in a trash can and buy another brand.

Generally Happy

Submitted by John2000 - 4/10/2018

The Good: simple to use; very good control of temp; flex zone works very well - easy to make lots of pancakes; love induction - far better than electric or gas The Bad: we needed service within a couple of months of use; hopefully it turns out to be reliable; the magnetic knob doesn't really work at all; the controls can get messed up with splattered grease from cooking, but overall isn't too much of an issue; the Bluetooth doesn't connect with the app at all Overall happy with the cooktop, hoping the reliability doesn't become an issue. As an aside, not at all happy with the double oven (currently broken) or with the ease of getting a service call from Samsung. On the upside, the cooktop was repaired under warrantee without any hassle; the oven has been a hassle to get someone out
