KitchenAid Celebrating a Century Rebate

Offer Expires: 9/26/2019 to 12/31/2019 Must be postmarked by: 1/30/2020

Receive up to a $1600 rebate with purchase of qualifying KitchenAid Appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 1/30/2020.

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.

Texas Cattleman 2/22/2019

I built a new house and picked all KitchenAid appliances. I read a lot of reviews on a variety of appliances but selected this line. I didn't go wrong.

36" Electric Cooktop

Bought (5) new KitchenAid major appliance for our new house. Wouldn't have settled for any other brand. Cooktop is sleek, easy to use, and very predictable with heat ranges. Awesome piece.

Love how fast the burners light up.

Mrs.Linn 1/4/2019

I've had this cooktop for 3 mos now.Love it so easy to clean. I replaced an almost 17 yr old coil burner one when the second big burner gave out. Last I had the first one repaired for $400.00 wow what a waste since I could have used the money on the new one.I just couldn't see putting any more money into it.My sister in law got this one last yr and when I visited in June we talked about how much she loved it. I have folks come and ask how I like it.Can't say enough about it.I use even my glass cookware on it with no problem.

State of the Art in Looks and Function

Persnickety purchasers 10/9/2018

It came time to replace our 30 year old 36 inch Kitchen Aid electric cook top that had served us beyond the call of duty. We reviewed on line and in store every conceivable replacement. The build and design quality, price and easy installation - - right in the same cut out of the old unit - made this unit a perfect choice. It has been all that we expected and more, sophisticated style and yet fun to use.
