To buy or not to buy Lowes extra insurance on a stove

javaandjazz | | May 20, 2013 03:45 AM

I went looking at new electric stoves with my partner in Lowes yesterday afternoon and the sales guy(who doesn't make any commissions) told us that since the past several storms we have had and the power was out for several days for some people; said that when the power finally came back on the circuit boards on on some appliances were fried and was recommending to buy the extra insurance because the manufacturer does not cover that in their warranty. Now my gas stove is relatively new and has some of that electronic gadgetry and we have had a few power outages but nothing major and my circuit boards were never fried. I know Consumer Reports says not to buy extra insurance but I would like to know from any of you, have you had that experience with the circuit boards being fried and the manufacturer not covering the problem. Thanks.
