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

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.

Easy to use and clean

Jeff 11/1/2021

Great looking stove, super quick when boiling water. Very easy to clean vs a gas stove. Controls are a little finicky but you get used to them. Automation when linked with the exhaust fan its neat.

Bad design, cannot use with wet fingers

Josh 12/20/2020

induction great; buttons = extremely poor design and very difficult to use, making the experience using this stove not plesant at all. if your fingers arent completely dry or a little liquid splashes on tbe dials- the stove can change the temperature on its own or just short circuit and reset in the middle of cooking. had for 6 months - wanted to see if maybe it just took some adjustment on the way we cook, but it regularly continues to be a problem.

Good looking and good layout but a bit sensitive

Ktmulvaney 11/12/2020

We love having induction and have no idea the quality of the induction compared to others as we changed over to ceramic so heating is so much quicker from our past experience. It looks great and works well and the long burner is great for a cast iron griddle. The only feature I do not like is how sensitive the on/off/power button which bugs me wI'm wiping up a spill. Sometimes it turns the entire cooktop off so I have to reset all the burners.

Love the options!

Brittlovesthecooktop 8/6/2020

I have had this cooktop for almost a year and I love it!! I do not use the knob, I just use my finger to control the burners, I think it is easier that way, especially if I have multiple burners going on at the same time. I love how fast the power boost can boil water. It cleans so easily. I have never had a problem with any of my pots or pans connecting to the cooktop, and I love the select-a-size feature on some of the burners!

Works well

George 8/3/2020

I bought it more than 1 year ago, it still looks and works well. Easy to use and clean. We like the power boost and simmer modes, and the virtual flame feature. Only drawback is the power control interface is finicky to use, either with touch or with the magnetic knob.

Best cooktop that exist

Fers 8/3/2020

I was in between a gas cooktop or the induction. I'm so glad that i chose the induction, which has the same power or more as a gas cooktop with features from this century. Another reason that made me chose the induction over the gas is how easy is to clean which is done in 10% of the time of a gas cooktop cleanup. One of the best features is the boiling water in less than a minute, it saves you a lot of time.

It has issues that their techs couldn't fix

HateSamsung 8/3/2020

Well even today, after contacting them about twenty times, the network connection doesn't do ANYTHING! Oh yeah, it is supposed to connect to the timer. You know, the one that you can't hear if you DON'T have it hooked up to some type of amplification device! They called back every day until they pushed it up to LEVEL 3, and then stopped calling! It still doesn't work. Guess it will stay defective. Well I won't try to get it repaired, I'll just use my Amazon Alexa as a timer. It is cheaper, louder and you don't have to play with an underglass print to get it set, you just have to speak! Well it is sad for them since they are loosing a customer for ALL the products, including a S20 Ultra that is sitting here not working.

Works Great

Kobe 3/26/2020

I have been using the 36" cookstop for about a year now and overall very happy with it. The performance beats the old electric coil cooktop that it replaced. Although, the performance does varies with different induction approved pots and pans. Like other reviewers, I found using my finger works better than the magnetic knob to adjust the "heat". Cooktop touch controls are sensitive to water as others have pointed out. But unlike other reviewers, I don't have an issue with boiling over. My source of agony is with cleaning up splatters while it is cooking. It doesn't like damp cloths being wiped over the controls. IMO its a bit sensitive. But I guess I'll just have to get over my OCD. LOL Connectivity features are not worth bragging about. It doesn't control anything, just monitors off/on. Installation instructions were very good, One thing I do wish Samsung would do is to more clearly state (emphasize) the required electrical power requirements. My old electric cooktop was wired for 30 amps. The 36" requires minimum 45 amps. It isn't as easy as just changing circuit breakers, you will highly likely need to upgrade the electrical wires too. This all adds to the overall cost.

Easy cleaning, heat is precise, boil water in under a minute, but don't walk away if using power boost. Easier to adjust temp with finger than dial.
