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.

nice little oven

ray 3/13/2018

Over all it is a very good oven. its simple to use and easy to understand. The only bad thing is it is poorly insulated especially on the top, anything that is left on the top will be 300C with in a minute or 2.

Amazing but seriously lacking in quality

Miken5678 9/2/2017

I own two of these. The first works ok but I had to tweak/bend the door to stop it from clanking and rubbing the side of the knob controls. The gap between the door and the buttons, on the front of both u its, is nowhere near parallel. The second unit I returned three times. The first had a fan that was beyond loud and rattled. All three units I received as replacements had issues with the door alignment. Most rubbed and one had to be pushed forceably closed. The doors are riveted on but the real issue is underneath. The bottom is not one piece and a seam is directly in line with the door and knob control in the front. What this means is i can take one finger and gently lift the unit. The whole unit flexes and the gap will widen accordingly. It is a weak point which causes a slight sag and many issues with the gap not being even and the door not closing correctly. Tonight topped the list. I hear something drop as the door is closed and think nothing of it. aFter I choose it a second time I hear it a again. I go to open the door and the handle comes off. Metal screws into a plastic handle. I tried screwing them back in however they just spin. The best part is once the handle comes off the whole top part of the glass door begins to separate. Both units still bake and toast fine. The quality control is abhorrent and severely lacking. Even on the better of my two units the door still doesn't line or close up as you would expect it to. My recommendation would be use one piece of metal on the underside and provide some structural stiffening. I will be seeing about an exchange as the item is only 4 months old. If I can get a replacement, and not run across the same issues then maybe this was just a bad batch. Otherwise i will take my losses and move on from the kitchenaid brand. Mike

Waste of money & customer support is terrible!

Melissa 8/30/2017

Purchased this the beginning of August and when I went to plug it in, it didn't even work! Yes, I tried plugging it in different outlets. Something that is BRAND new should be functional. I have contacted support which has NOT been easy. First time I called, they told me their computer systems were down and I would need to call back later. Second time I called, they were unable to get me registered! I am not impressed at all. Bad product and bad service. What a waste of money. I will not be buying again.

Hollie 8/29/2017

Very disappointed

Kevin 8/23/2017

I have now purchased this oven twice, each time having to return it to the store..... it works great for a week or two, but then it begins to have issues. Both times, the fan located on the right side panel of the oven, has issues. It is very quiet when new, but give it a couple of weeks and it starts making an obnoxiously loud humming sound. Both ovens of this same model have had the exact same problem. I love the functionality of this oven but this model clearly has issues with durability. I am considering trying again for a 3rd time... but may just have to go with a different brand. Overall, very dossappointed

I bout this a few weeks ago and have used it mainly for breakfast items. It's quite slow, and we had to let it burn off the chemical-y smell in the beginning which had some questionable smoke, but aside from that it does what it's supposed to do far! The door wasn't lined up correctly either.

I bought this oven to replace my 11 year old single rack convection/toaster. Not only is this oven more compact but it has 2 racks!!!! The only thing I would caution is don't bake a cake on the top rack. It's too close to the heating element and the top will burn too quickly.

Moving on up

LindsaySweets 3/30/2017

Having used a standard toaster (also KitchenAid) for years, I thought having oven space too was important in my next purhcase. However, I realize that I simply "toast" most of the time, so some of the features don't get much use. And with that much space inside, just "toasting" can take an incredibly long amount of time. However, the few times I've used the other options, I've been completely satisfied. A more speedy bake than in my standard oven, and a pretty quick preheat. Not to mention, it looks pretty! : ) One miss element: No way to turn off the timer except by running it out.

Looks good, but not a toaster!

toast lovers 3/23/2017

We bought this because it looked great and would hold two small pizzas which our grandchildren eat constantly. However, for toasting bread it's slow and uneven. We noted the crumb tray was NOT on the top of the bottom heat coil, which we thought would lead to even toasting. It does not. Toast only works on Dark. Warming food, baking food work fine, although we don't do anything other than warm up left overs so we really can't judge. Again--it looks great! We appreciate the knob having a texture so they can be turned when you're hands have food on them.

Good But Not Great

Chris 3/19/2017

This review is for two Compact Ovens aka Large Toaster Ovens. We purchased the 1st one with the expectation it would be the same high-quality as full-size KitchenAid appliances. It stopped working after approx. 30 days. We took advantage of KitchenAid's 'no-hassle' 1-year guarantee, though it took another month to receive the 2nd replacement unit. So far, the 2nd Compact Oven is working fine. But the construction quality/finish is poor. Read another reviewer who noted the oven door did not fully close. Yep, we got one of them too. The upper right corner of the door has a 1/16" gap, which is turning the stainless steel finish black. Also see that the control panel (right side w/ 4 knobs) sets uneven against the body of the oven. OK, now to performance. Cooks/works well on bake and broil. Assume temperatures are achieved, since all food is properly cooked. Because of it's size/height of the oven, the toast feature is only fair. Set it at a darker level, or toast twice, and it works fine. We hope this 2nd until will last for a few years.
