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.

Warming drawer

First warming drawer we have had and don't know how we ever got along without it. Easy to use and works like a third oven for the really big parties.

Unbelievable... - Not in a good way...

1/12/2016

I am on my 3rd repair for this warming drawer... It was installed in May... It seems fitting to say "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results"... The drawer keeps melting the plastic that is located on the side of the drawer and blowing the fuse. As long as I do all the legwork of calling KitchenAid to ship the parts to the repair company, the repair takes a short 6 weeks (being sarcastic). This has gotten very old, very fast...

I love the KitchenAid warming drawer. I think as a fluke, ours quit working after 3 months and needs a new fuse. Other than that, I would recommend it.

Steve32 3/18/2015

We owned the previous 30" model for 14 years and really enjoyed the ability to serve a larger group of guests with all receiving a "hot" meal. This latest model moved the control electronics to the side instead of top. Our old model failed due to overheated control electronics. Looking forward to a 14+ year life for this unit and utilizing it as a slow cooker.

BarbieB 2/12/2015

Bought this a couple months ago for our new home. Its my 2nd warming drawer now. Just couldn't be without one when we moved. Nothing like "warm dishes" when you serve that special meal. In fact, we use it ALL the time.

Been wanting this for years!

StacyS 2/12/2015

Upon designing our new kitchen, I was sure to include a warming drawer! Every time I would cook a large meal for a crowd, I thought how handy a warming drawer would be - no more half cooled dishes by the time all the food was ready! But it is also handy for everyday uses like heating leftovers or keeping extra food warm in case anyone wants seconds. Highly recommend.

Arlene M 1/8/2015

We built a new home and I decided to get the kitchenaid warming drawer. It is fantastic. I used it at thanksgiving to keep my side dishes warm and I was able to serve the whole meal hot. I love it. It also slow cooks, but I have not tried that feature yet. I would recommend this everyone.

BStone 5/13/2014

Built a new home and have a huge kitchen. Its nice to have the warming drawer to keep things warm when having parties or just keeping dinner warm for my husband. Its also got a cook mode to it so I can use it for that.

Everyone needs one of these!

sunnyfox 5/7/2014

I LOVE this appliance. I bake bread, and the proof setting is fantastic. Using it as a slow cooker is great--dinner can be ready at the end of the day without heating up your kitchen in the summer--and since you use your own pots, you can braise the meat first on top of the stove, then put in drawer. Chips stay crisp, and keeping a plate of food warm for late arrivals (a regular occurrence at our house) are other handy uses.

Warming Drawer

Oldrocker48 4/28/2014

I have only had the use of the drawer since late March but it has been a great addition to my kitchen. I keep my dinner plates in the drawer until it is time to eat. Everyone has a warm plate to help keep their food warm (we talk through dinner). I also put my dinner rolls in there during my dinner prep and by dinner time they are perfectly warm. If you have the place to install one of these units, believe me, you will not be disappointed in doing so.

Lamb54 4/28/2014

I host a family pot luck every month for between 15-20 people. I never had enough space to keep food warm. The warming drawer has been great. Fits 3 to 4 casserole dishes. In addition, I have also used to to keep rolls warm (and moist)! and as a slow cooker. I am extremely happy with this appliance and it looks great in my kitchen island.

I love this thing

Biscottiqueen 1/10/2014

I was very excited to receive my first warming drawer & couldn't wait to try it out. I often have to keep my husbands food warm when he's late for supper but I was a little nervous the first time I tried it but soon found it easy to use. The temperature dial takes all the stress out of trying to figure out how high to regulate your heat. I have to say tho that I thought the proofing temp was a little low for me, but then I don't like to wait over an hour for my dough to proof. As far as keeping things warm the temp zone is great & very adjustable. I really loved using it along with my convection oven/micro combination during a party for 40, it helped a lot. I would love to try out the pans that fit inside & hold the food also I think they would make good use of the space. Definite good buy even if you don't use it everyday.

Best thing we purchased for our dream kitchen remodel

Michael56 12/20/2013

Of all the items we purchased in our gourmet kitchen the warming drawer is the most used thing. Preparing dinners with guests, either we use it to keep food warm and not dried up, or upon arrival of our guests they use it to keep what they have brought to our dinner. My wife wishes we had two of them. When we have late arrivals like kids we still have correct temperature food without dried out dinner. Thank-you KitchenAid

Adding the warming drawer to our traditional cooking methods was a bit different, but now that we've had it for over a year now, we wonder how we ever got along with out it. A very handy appliance for sure! We added our own matching cabinet front. We love it!
